First of all, I was very disappointed to see that SGG did not, in fact, rename this to the “Trial of Smash It”. (reference) Ah, well. My team this time:
- Poseidon +3
- Azlar 4^80
- Gormek +20
- Boldtusk +20
- Little John +7
Compared to last time, Boldtusk reached max emblems, Poseidon picked up another talent, and Little John is up 4 talents. This lineup is VERY unlikely to change for a long time. Perhaps if I ever max Elena, but I’m kind of doubting even that.
Mob waves are a joke with this lineup. Entered the boss wave with all specials charged, and with BT + Gormek + LJ + Azlar, the battle is half over at the end of the first turn. (Poseidon targeted Boss Azlar, if you are interested. Two moves in, I create a green diamond, which in turn recharges LJ, and it’s clear this one is Oh - VAH! Bosses Azlar and Elena never fired; Nashgar fired at the end and actually killed LJ, but really, who cares at that point? Nary an item was touched throughout the trial.
Both Poseidon and LJ fall short of the next node; trainer hero goes to Scarlett.
