(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 Fortitude

  • The Cleric and Druid Classes skew heavily toward healers — unlike some of the Trials, there are many to choose from. Did you bring any healers along?

  • While having healer options is nice, the Cleric and Druid Classes are quite light on hitters. Did you find it hard to build a team with sufficient offensive power?

  • Cleric Boril can be effective for killing boss Horghall by getting him to suicide on Boril’s riposte. Did you bring Boril along, and if so, did you find that an effective tactic?

: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?

Trials of Guv

Team Last time

[Turns out again no screenshots…]

Team This Time

Other Hero Options


  • Guardian Owl - 2/55
  • Gobbler - 3/60


  • Rigard - 4/70 (costume bonus, +15)
  • Kunchen - 4/80
  • Gafar - 4/70


Autoplayed the first two stages as usual.

Final stage took me a little to get into it… Cleric is a healer heavy class… Maybe next time will take Gafar instead of Grazul… Idk…




My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

The Battle


But fairly straightforward.

I intended to kill Vivica first, based on last time, but ended up killing Horghall first again. Just sort of worked out that way.

Hansel died relatively late, so I didn’t bother reviving him.

Shiny New Emblems

They’re joining my piles for now, while I mull taking a bunch of 3* to +3.

So Hansel and Caedmon aren’t getting them for now.

Green Machine

Having (unsurprisingly) failed to get Mother North, I started on Lianna on January 1, after power leveling Buddy from 1-1 to max.

She’s coming along pretty quickly, since she’s eating all greens and yellows, plus 2* reds and blues.


I had mnesseus, melendor Rigard, Belith and Melia for my previous.

Although this time 2 of them are not maxed I think I should fair better but right now I have no energy or flasks or gems for energy so gotta wait 5 hrs.


Wasn’t me this time, but why not. If you have beaten it the last 5 times, you probably will do it this time, too.

No items needed due to a dressed Lianna @70. I stripped all nodes from Boril, but he also countered Horgh without talents.

Emblems used for my rare tourney def, Kingston trained.


Same team

Forgot pic to start, but got the dwarf first, tiles where beter on his side

Then the tiles never came, droped some bombs on the big boy and slowly got the little dragon

Working on second Elk


Changed team slightly, took in Boril at 1/22 for Belith+20. Rest was Rigard+19, Horghall+4, Melendor+2, Grazul4/38. I had to revive Boril 2 times and used some dragon storm, bombs to finish of the bosses. Boril’s counter attack helped a lot such as having 3 healers. Emblems will be saved to max Rigard to +20 and maybe for Melendor or Horghall. 3* green Trainer went to Elkanen - one of my new projects.


Same team as the last time.

At the boss wave, I ensured some diamonds were ready, while all heroes were charged safe Zim and Alby who had been fired early to take advantage of his mana boost and HoT and the former for attack boost.

The board was decent all through, Kún heals cleanses team and debuffs Vivic’s def buffs. Boss Horghall committed suicide as expected on my team’s Boril, hence exited early,
Again the synergy within my team made it another victory without the need to use items.

The trainer will go to Hansel, now that Buddy is maxed. Saving all emblems for now.


Oh wow I managed to do stage 3 rather easily.
I started with 20 minor health, 5 axe, 4 Dragon attacks and 3 bombs.


MN replaced Vivica but I still had to use items as Vivica kept healing while I didn’t have enough firepower.

New emblems will go to MN, trainer hero went to Buddy.


Same team as last time and I may never change it, since why fix what ain’t broken. Dump tiles into Boril and let him fire, then dispel or steal. Fire on Viv, use Hansel on Viv and/or Horghall as needed.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

After 2 stage with Gafar in and Caedmon out, I’m thinking it is too heavy healer without power, so I changed Melendor to Caedmon (still need one dispeller at least).
Hansel emblem from +3 to +14.

The Battle

At boss step, All mana-charged and ready to fire, good board, no used items so far good start.

Used x1 mana for caedmon to dispell boril, and 1x bear banner to flip Horghall att debuff.
Last boss Boril finished by Gafar special.

The Reward

Emblem Druid keep for Alby, Cleric not decide yet either continue Hansel or Rigard.
Trainer goes to Kingston.


My team last time :point_up_2:
My team this time :point_down:

Small improvements and a reorder of my team but the same effectiveness. Might not change the team henceforth. Having an emblem maxed Melendor and emblem maxed Boril will push me to give the emblems elsewhere. Hoarding them and the trainer heroes for now.


Every time struggling with this trial because I have a huge leck of firepower.

Like you can see I am able to heal a small city with my portable hospital but stick like a butterfly.

But with the E&P little helpers bombs, axes and mana managed it the first time. :boom:

Trainee hero: Kadilen
Emblems: Do not know. Have no druids and I am extremely uncertain about the other ones.
Maybe somebody has any advices?
I would be glad.


Went with a new team. Agwe at 3/60 died in two shots everytime but luckily rezzed in the last round to speed up taking out viv. Used no items switched albi in for vic this time and ran boss wolf as tank 3/70 instead of boril. The mana down literary made the match a breeze


Congrats on finishing! Caedmon is definitely a Druid worth investing in (I have two maxed) once you get him. He gets very strong with emblems and is helpful in this Trial (maybe replace Mel with him for more firepower).

My team:

Now that Boril and Tree Man are gone, just gotta buckle up and grind it out:

Broke with ham and iron so the emblems go to the Parking Lot for a while :grin:


Hoping to get hatter some day
