(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

:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Decimation

  • Trials of Decimation has some good healer options — did you bring any healers?

  • Fighter Boldtusk and Wizard Kiril are hugely helpful for their mix of buffs and healing. Kiril is particularly helpful as a counter to Boss Ulmer’s defense debuff. Do you have either, and did you bring them?

  • The Wizard Class has several excellent mana controllers with Proteus, Merlin, Onatel, Hel, and Guinevere. They can be an excellent approach to preventing the Bosses from firing in the first place. Do you have any of these heroes, and did you bring any of them along?

:grey_question: Standard Questions for All Trials

  • Did your team change notably since last time?

  • Have Costumes caused changes to your team?

  • Did changes to your team make the Trials any easier or harder?

  • What items did you use, if any?

  • What are you doing with your shiny new Emblems?

  • If you beat Stage 3, who’s eating the 3* Trainer Hero?

  • Anything else interesting to share?

Already voted that I will beat all stages. :shushing_face:


Here is my team. I will beat decimation like I usually do. Will only use basic items, arrows, minor mana pots, minor healing potion, and bear banner


I will post this here ready.

This was the last team that I did manage to complete it with. If I remember, I lost Ulmer, but that is quite obvious. Since then, I have had some new Heroes that I can use, such as 3/60 Boldtusk, 3/60 Sumitomo, and another Proteus (3/60). I am sure I have one or two others too, each only at 3/60 though but I can definitely replace Ulmer.

I will post a screenshot of what heroes I have available in 1 hr and ask who you guys think I should take with me.


All max:

Panther, Proteus, Isarnia, Kiril, Sumitomo.

Pissed it, no items.

The Rewards


Previous Team (plus Ulmer to the end):

New Team:


Same team as last team only a little stronger here and there.


Used a few small mana flasks and two arrows

Trainerhero will sit on the bench for now, let’s hope he is food for Künchen next Atlantis :slight_smile:


Team as last time. Proteus, Elena, Hu Tao, Kashrek and Kiril, all slightly emblembed.
All Specials ready to fire, when the bosses arrived. They could not get Mana, because Proteus said so. Hu Tao blinded them, and the few hits which came through went into reposte from Elena. Ulmer went first, followed by Balthsar who hit one shot and took out Kashrek. Used 2 dragon storms to save some time and 2 Mana Potions for Proteus, while Kiril kept everyone alive and strong. All emblems will be stacked and the trainer goes to Grimble.


Same team, nothing changed

The battle
Between Hel and Proteus, I tried to keep the bosses in mana stasis all round, but the board failed a couple of turns, allowing Ulmer and Oberon to unleash their specials, as a result, I used 1 minor antidote and 1 minor mana pot.

The bosses seem to pick interest in Proteus, eventually killed him with slashes.

The trainer will go to C. Tiburtus, and I guess Proteus needs to go up some nodes possibly to reduce being targeted, I hope., Fighter emblems banked.


Any stage with proteus allowed is an easy stage. nuff said.


Forgot team pics last time and this time, so here’s time before last lol.

Last time I swapped second Proteus for partially maxed Kingston, this time swapped for Kingston again (now maxed) and Hu Tao for partiality maxed Sartana.

Fight was a breeze, didn’t struggle at all. I used a couple mana pots on Proteus to keep everyone in check when purple tiles were scarce, but other than that it really seemed easy this time.

Oberon tried coming back from the grave but he already had poison attached, so went he with a whimper as fast as he returned.

Trainer went to Ariel, emblems saved for now.


I’m still working on the trial… but here’s my team.



My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

The Battle

With two of Proteus, there’s never really anything to say about this one.

Shiny New Emblems

Merlin will go to +4, and Colen to +9 — but right now I’m crafting a bunch of stuff in preparation for the Challenge Event next month, so that’ll have to wait until tomorrow so I have Iron.

Forever Dapper

Rigard number 4’s Costume ate the Trainer Hero…and leveling Rigard for the 8th time is getting a little tedious.


Wow you have a lot of dupes, zeph… if it’s too tedious I don’t mind adopting a few of them :blush: :blush: :blush:


Same team as last time…

I still have 2 other Misandras and 2 other Proteus


Same team
Last time Guinevere was +6

Got the sniper first

Lost 11 and 14 but Gwen kept 6 and 7 alive

Emblems will end up going to Guinevere, trainer for the big bad Lion


This is my team. I only used a few items (one Tornado and two small mana potions). Proteus was always active so the bosses never charged.


My team last time:

My team this time will stay the same, it seems, I didn’t have any problems with this trial the last two times :slight_smile: never change a running system. They have some more talents - haha or less, see Kiril - that’s all

Trainer is stocked for Ursena then or I give him Sabina, when my patience runs out (she’s on her way to max, 4/26 now, and the next purple in the queue is Ursl^^).
Emblems…I have some more Boldies to max (3^^), so the fighter emblems are stocked. Wizard emblems will go to Proteus, I’m so jealous, my husband has him on +20 :smiley:
