(hat tip to @JAWS_3D for this question)

  • Yeah, I nuked the bosses from space. Ripley would approve.
  • I used some items to finish off the bosses, but it wasn’t the full arsenal
  • I used support items like mana, banners, healing, and maybe a battle item or two, but nothing too crazy
  • I just used some minor items, like healing, mana, or antidotes
  • I didn’t use any items

The Battle

Allowed autoplay to finish off the first two stages as usual

Final Battle Video:
Lack of healer hurt a little. Used a couple small health pots but not sure it made a difference lol.

The Rewards


Used same team as last time

No items were used as the board was really good and kept on getting chains

Emblems will go to GM and rouge will be stocked for now
Trainer will go to Jack O’Hare (yes i just started leveling him :joy:)
Reset emblem NO


Same team as last time, but stronger. Miki4/71, Grimm+20, Little John+6, Kelile+8, Domitia+7.
I forgot to bring healing potion, so it got a little tight in the end and I had to revive Grimm and Kelile once. Little John bravely lasted on the tiniest bit of life I could imagine. Miki kept the bosses quiet and Azlar was finished first. Then Nashgar, then Scarlett. Used 1 time trap and 2 dragon storm. Trainer went to Grazul, rogue emblems to Kelile and the barbarian will be kept for Miki - as a pure Titan and Bosslevel hero in my game he will get +1, but maybe that’s all.


Last time

This time

Benched Danzaburo in favor of costumed Li Xiu and took @Guvnor’s advice From last time to bring axes and bombs. Was fairly easy this time even though I used items, but team power isn’t really there yet. Doesn’t help that there weren’t even enough blue tiles to get Grimm’s special off until the last shot (swamped with purples).

Next time I should have at least one Jackal ready, so that should help. Probably should get Puss going just for the healing too (after Falcon).
Note to self: max LJ for crying out loud, he’s been at 3-60 forever.

Trainer goes to Falcon, emblems saved for now.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

The Battle

I had an easier time this run than some past ones. A good board setup heading into the Bosses meant all I needed were Healing Potions and one Antidote. I avoided Time Stops this time.

Shiny New Emblems

Inari stepped up to +5, and the Barbarian Emblems are on the shelf for now. They’ll probably be going to Karil as part of my efforts to take several 3* to +3, but I’m going to wait until I have enough to do that at once at least.

Almost Done…Again

Rigard number 4 ate the Trainer Hero.


A healer for survival - yay :sunglasses:

No items used.
Trainer to Elena.
Stripped Danza.
Puss (finished today) to +3.


Same team

But an absolute fail so had to drop bombs

Trainer for Azlar and saving emblems for him too


Same team as the last few times, so nothing too exciting, but I did discover this potential bug?!
Marjana is the only one who can dodge Scarlett, but somehow she was the only one who was affected by the ATK debuff.
Edit: oops, didn’t see they were afected by Blindness


My first time losing a stage where I actually tried to win, used items and didn’t auto in a long long time.

Guess 3000 TP without a healer is a bit tough for the last stage of trials… I’ll start making a bunch of feeders and try to get my Grimm ascended or something and try again.


Okay, this time I went with the continue…something was wrong, dunno exactly what. The team was the same:

…I have to build it in my roster again for a screenshOt, I think some troops and emblems changed :slight_smile:

Notable: my alt account did the first time the 3rd stage - also with continue, but it worked :slight_smile: nice.

Trainer is saved for the next red 5*, I guess it will be BK. Emblems are also saved for the moment.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

No change, only emblem Scarlett+7 and Jackal+18 now, and yellow crit troop (need mana troop ).

The Battle

All mana charged except Grimm which is cruisal, because he should fire 1st to take more advantage from def down, bring no mana, because need more slot for heal pots but just let it goes. Used 3 heal so far, because no healers.

OK, used all 5x potent heal and 8 heal pots, and 1x antidots to cleanse Azlar burn.
Easy because Miki and Grimm, well next time I will bring 2nd Grimm, he is still in 3.60, need compass so badly. I hope compass will come soon, at least next event will give us a compass from completion rewards.

The Reward

Trainer will goes to… well no red project at moment, so keep it, Sumitomo is stuck at 3.60 (need compass as well).
Emblem Barbarian will keep for a while, I do not know if I want to raise Grimm or Little John or keep for Gretel after she is maxed, will decide later.
Emblem Rogue goes to Jackal.

Because i choose defense path (for sturdy titan and raid againts Kunchen mainly), I will stop at +19, actually this is my highest emblem so far. :smile:



I brought Musashi in for parasol Li. Otherwise, the team was the same, albeit with more emblem ranks.

  • On the bench: 2 Jackals, Gretel, Tony Danza, Miki 3.70, Parasol Li, Cabin Boy, Marjana, Scarlett

Got to the bosses with everyone ready to go, though Grimm #2 was a bit worse for wear. Tough it out, big guy.

Focused fire and some blue tiles sent the lion to sleep in the jungle tonight. Hang on, Grimm!

Scarlett died in a cascade, and Nashgar took down Grimm #2. RIP. My vengeance was swift, with Kage getting the killing blow.

No idea who gets the trainer. Emblems to Kageburrito and Khiona.


Peters / Kelile / Miki / Scarlett / Gormek

Miki is 4/63 and Gormek 3/60, the rest are maxed with about 3 emblems.
I took 20 Minor Health / 5 Dragon / 5 Carpet / 5 Turtle Banners

I used all of the health since I had no healers. I used 2 Dragons and 2 Bombs. I was getting mostly purple tiles at the end for some reason, I needed red but was not getting many. However, thanks to Miki no boss got their special to go off. I ended up losing Scarlett but the rest did have extremely low health. Never the less, I won :smiley:

I am liking now finally, that I can do a lot of these “easily” (I mean without using all battle items)


Just did the first 2

Emblems both saved for the moment


Grimm - Scarlett+18 - Little John+18 - Grimm+20 - Jackal+18


Same team as last time:
Grimm +20
Azlar +5
Domitia +1
Marjana +9

Breezed through the entire challenge.


Not an ideal team comp as colors go, but it got the job done.

Only used a couple antidotes, 1 dragon attack and 2 axes.

Emblems went to Peters and Gretel (photo shows them with the boosts already)
Saving the trainer for when g falcon gets close to max.


Same team as last time. This one is pretty easy with this team, even without healers
