(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 Shadows

  • There are a number of healer options available for this trial (Sabina, Lady of the Lake, Puss in Boots, Brynhild Costumed Vivica & Costumed Hawkmoon). Did you bring any of them along?

  • How did you deal with Boss Scarlett and Skittleskull’s attack debuffs? Some possible options include Antidotes, using Rogue Khiona to overwrite the debuffs, using Sorcerer Mitsuko for mana control, using Sorcerer Ameonna to shed to status effects on herself, using Rogues Inari or Margaret to dodge the specials, using Rogue Peters to silence, or using Rogue Costumed Tyrum to clear the ailments.

Hmm not sure what to do here:

Sabina +18 / LotL (3/70) / Scarlett +12 / Brynhild +18 / Peters +5


Sabina +18 / Kelile (no emblems) / Scarlett +12 / Brynhild +18 / Peters +5

Or I have a +3 Skittle (has costume but not maxed
I am edging towards the first one with LotL, but then i feel 3 healers is too much… I dunno lol


First one is pretty healer heavy (3 healers). I would personally probably go the second option.


Excited to give my new costume Kiril a go for this one. Will probably do cKiril | Jackal+8 | cLi Xiu+6 | Scarlett+9, then for the last slot I can’t decide between

  • Scarlett 2 4/70
  • Peters 4/70
  • Jackal 2 4/70
  • Ursena+11

Doesn’t feel right to not use Ursena+11 but damn does she seem so out of place. Double Jackal action + cLi Xiu+6 means a ton of damage at (very) fast speed if the Jackals survive lol. Peters’ silence is nice but again he seems out of place. I dunno anymore lol…


Who’s up for the vanilla/costume only challenge!?!

@sleepyhead, still with me? I am surprised I remembered :upside_down_face:



I’m in :slight_smile:

Khiona out; Li Xiu (costume) in.


me too :slight_smile: with my girl Sabina, I’m pretty confident!

gonna have to bench Inari. love ya foxy girl, now go take a break.


I used Costume Kashhrek instead.
The screenshot shows different battle items to what I used in the final stage. I used only one antidote but didn’t need to.


Reset token YES


Same team as the last time


Again Brynhild did a good job keeping her flanks alive.

Trainer, reset and emblems saved for now.


No changes from last time (except possibly a couple more emblems):

Marjana +13 / Peters +1 / Skittleskull / Domitia / Sabina +20

I used a couple of mana, healing and antidotes, but it went extremely smoothly. It seemed to take forever on the bosses on level 3, but they weren’t much of a problem.

Trainer for Raffaele (currently 4/42). Marjana is no longer on defense, but no rogue is there either. Will have to consider what to do with those. Sorcerers are stored up in the vain hope that I some time get a decent one…


Team used:

Swapped Khiona out for Costume Li Xiu to fit the all vanilla hero challenge from above.


More Vids: 🎭 Guvs YouTube Videos / Channel


Reset token saved; rogue emblems for no-one particular. Sorcerer Emblems are for Norns next.


Same team

Poped the queen of dodge

Along with the other dodging princess

Just took my time really

Trainer saved along with emblems


All-vanilla challenge here we come!

Rogue Li Xiu, Scarlett, Marjana, Kelile, Sabina. This battle turned out to be a bloody one; was setting the board up to have a nice Yellow diamond for boss stage, but it got popped in Wave 4 cause I had no other useful move available.

Also forgot to bring antidotes to cure the attack debuffs, making the battle last longer.

Lost Scarlett early, then Kelile, then finally Marjana. Enemy Domitia hits hard!

Finally finished them off with only Sabina and Li standing, plus a time stop and couple dragon attacks used.

Rogue emblems in the bank to bring either Marge or Inari to +4 (leaning towards Marge as I use her, Hansel and Caedmon-C against Telly tanks a lot). Sorcerer for nobody in particular (all I have are my two Sabinas and Skittles, all already well-emblemed); might spend on a 3*. Blue trainer to dupe Valeria.


I’m working on Brynhild so she will be done before the next set of trials. Recently started on Costumed Kiril and hopefully he will be done by then too.

Use some healing potions and bear banners to cleanse the atk down.


My team:


Mono yellow. No trouble at all. Used a few small mana pots at boss level but could have won easily without it as well. Very short battle. Ended with entire team at full health!

Yes to reset emblem. Trainer, emblems banked.


My team:

Had to use a couple of antidotes to negate the attack debuffs. Emblems and trainer hero hoarded for now. :slight_smile:

@Circe By any chance are you from India? :slight_smile:


Yes I am :blush: Was it the time stamp? :sweat_smile:


PiBs, Locke, Norns, Alice, cIsarnia

No trouble at all.
