My team this time:
- Wilbur 4^67
- Leonidas 3^70
- Rigard +20
- Li Xiu +20
- Boril +19
Compared to last time, Boril gained a talent, Leo hit the mat wall, and Wilbur checked in for Vivica 3^70. He didn’t quite make it to max, where a stack of emblems awaits.
Still light on hitters, but the mobs weren’t very tough. Had to heal before the bosses, so only Rigard was not charged to begin the boss wave. After finally getting Wilbur in January, and now having him in fighting shape, I get what the big deal is. Why do these game-changing four stars evade me for so long? I used my usual strategy of having Li and Leo keeping Friar Tuck from firing for as long as possible. I also used three bombs to complete the Path of Valor daily challenge, but I was in a bit of a hurry because I needed to run some errands, so I let Tuck fire before I could bomb away. I quickly fired off a dragon and prepared to bomb before the next heal. But then Joon riposted, crippling his HP, and suddenly, I realized that my damage was more than keeping up with Tuck’s healing for a change. Credit Wilbur’s defense down. When Joon went down, it was even better, only splitting damage two ways. Took a while, and Li went down on Boril’s riposte, but no further items were required. That’s huge; now I know Tuck’s heal doesn’t mean game over on this trial.
Cleric emblems saved for Boril’s last talent, as I lack better options. Monk emblems for Wilbur in the next day or two. Trainer hero to Hu Tao; taking my forgotten heroes to 3^60, but plan to wait to see how early S3 summons go before spending important mats, if possible.
