& I was able to complete all stages in beta with this team, and no items. On the last stage I brought in bombs, dragon attacks, big mana and big health just to be safe, but never had to use any of em.
So it is doable with 70 heroes, even if they’re not maxed or emblemed. Hel helped tremendously by never allowing the bosses to fire, so I’d highly recommend a mana controller in there [if you can swing it].
But the last stage is pretty difficult, so just be sure to prepare your board and SS going into it. If you wanna be on the safe side of things, bring bombs and dragon attacks, mana pots if you’ve got a mana controller, and timestops if you don’t. Last spot you can use for health pots, scrolls, more mana, or arrows/axes. It’s tough, but doable.
