(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 Survival

  • Trials of Survival is well-named for its general lack of healers in the Barbarian and Rogue Classes — how did you do without healers?

  • Or are you lucky enough to own Brynhild or Puss in Boots?

  • The Barbarian and Rogue Classes have a lot of heavy hitters — are you able to put together a strong offensive team?

: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?

This one is an easier one for me:

Miki / Peters +5 / Brynhild +17 / Scarlett +10 / Grimm +14

3x Red Bosses on Stage 3 means Miki and Grimm make this much easier.

On my bench i have:
Gretel +7
Little John +11


No reset token


Did with

Little John - Grimm- Gormek - C.Li xiu - Kelile

The rogue emblems go for Kelile , the barbarian ones i will keep them for now.
Trainer will go to JF


First time I have some usable options instead of my standard 5.

I used to run

Grimm +18 / Scarlett +13 / Marj 3/70 / Domitia 3/70 / Inari 3/70

Now I have GM at +15, Grimm is back to no nodes and Margaret at 3/70.

I ran Grimm / Scarlett +13 / Marj 3/70 / GM +15 / Inari 3/70 for the first 2 levels. Wondering if I should get Marg for Grimm in the final and go full dodge fest on the bosses. I would lose def down but would gain lots of fun hahaha

Edit : Just realized I also have Malosi at 3/70. I’m going with

Scarlett +13 / Malosi 3/70 / Marg 3/70 / GM +15 / Inari 3/70

the idea is to avoid direct damage with dodges and DoT effects with Malosi. In reality I’ll probably lose 20WE LOL

Update: Worked like a charm! Dodges flying everywhere and mana charged every 2 turns. Spent some health pots due to lack of healers and Inari died at the end but everyone else made it. Definitely the trial of this type where I spent less items all in all due to so many dodges and mana bonuses.


This one used to be hard, but now I just use a few healing potions:

Grimm +20 / Peters +1 / Domitia / Marjana +12 / Stonecleave +12

Stonecleave is putting out enough damage to take out a minion in two hits, so is quite useful.

Leveling Sudri, and he’s already maxed on special, so I guess I’ll use the trainer there… Marjana is no longer in my defense (Jean-François is supporting Telluria), so not sure with the rogue emblems. Barbarian emblems are also up in the air – working Mok-Arr to see if he’s now worth tabards, (and to see if I draw Shesat or Guardian Panther before it’s “too late” so emblems would be a long way away…)


Same team

Scored a diamond this time round
Put out the Volcano first :fire:

The sparkler came next

That dodge is very annoying, just hung in

A lot of trainers in the bank and not alot to feed.
Majana may get a rise, plus the Lion :fire:


My team:
No items used thanks to Miki.

The new barbarian emblems will go to Malosi, the rogue ones are for Domitia.


Very weak in rogues and barbarian.
Used danza/grimm 4/50/ azar / namahage / mok-arr 2/60. The 3* heroes already die to bosses of round 2, so not even attempted round 3, only hope of finishing that round is nuking the bosses, and not worth it imo.


I used Malosi, Margaret, Grimm, Brynhild, Azlar

Needed a few healing potions and three of my heroes were dead at the end, but I won.


Love this one!

Almost the same team, maybe one or two with an extra emblem node. And switched Grimm with Kong.

Kageburado 4/80 - Jackal +13 - Gravy +17 - Atomos 4/80 - Kong 4/80

Needed a few small antidodes and health flasks and some Arrow attacks in the final to put Azlar down.

Hero trainer was a tasty bite for Shadereave and the Barbarian emblems went to my dear Gravy who turned 18 today :wink:

Rogue emblems not sure yet, maybe Brynhild or I will save them for a while. Don’t have a 5* rogue yet. it was fun, thanks and have a great day! :slight_smile:


Here’s the team:

Same team as last time. I have a maxed Azlar, but left him at home for speed. That and most those heroes with emblems have a higher A value too.

I had to use a few health pots at the end. I had an unfortunate cascading combo that set Azlar off on accident. Otherwise things went fine.

All emblems went to the bank as I didn’t have enough for the next Gretel node or rogue node (I also need to decide if I leave the red ladies at +18 and start maybe Domitia).

Good luck to all!


Team last time:

Team this time:

Not convinced that it’s actually a good exchange, but it worked. Actually like Sif so I wanted to give her a try…Malosi worked well in preventing Azlars DoT for the first time, but in the end I needed one healing potion for Kage and still lost squishy little jackal…

Emblems go to Kage and Marjana, trainer went to Heimdall as I don’t have any suitable red projects on the horizon.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Scarlet out, Marjana in. And Miki is now maxed because why not, he is always in titan and also worth for event and tavern quest.

Other Options

Screenshot at Jun 03 19-53-29

The Battle

Decent start. Used 3x heal in mobs, because mobs targeting wings (Marjana and Grimm) which is not in Brynhild area.

Easy with strong blue tiles and double grimm, and keep slience bosses by Miki. And great finisher by the only one red sniper in the EP, Marjana :grin:


Emblem keep stocked because lack of iron. Rogoue plan for Marjana and Barbarian plan for Atomos (not sure, but it can be).
Trainer keep in stock, currently red project plan is Lancelot which is still in tier 2.


I brought in a recently leveled Gravemaker for one of the Grimms. I have several more options available to me compared to last time. I really wanted to find a way to get Sif involved, but I couldn’t land on a team I liked with her in the lineup.

  • On the bench: Sif, Jackals 1 and 2, Grimm 2, Gretel, Tony Danza, Miki, Parasol Li, Cabin Boy, Marjana, Scarlett, Musashi, Fire Captain Elena, Stonecleave
  • Up and coming: Jackal #3 3.29, Dom 2.60, Little John 3.5

No problems getting to the bosses with everyone ready, and hey, check out those diamonds! I fired all the specials and dropped nearly the whole board on them. Scarlett managed to get a special off, as 4763 tiles hitting her charged her up super fast.

Nashgar died to tiles.

Scarlett died to tiles, then Kage finished off Azlar.

Trainer to JF, emblems to Marjana and GM.


Same team as before

Went into the boss wave with just 2 members fully charged…suddenly the board became awful and everything else went south :blush:

Used up all items, it was amazing it didn’t end in a defeat , emblems and trainer saved.


Took this was able to clear it had to nuke a bit at the end, killed Nash and the other 2 fired so was nearly game over.

Emblems in storage trainer JF


Impressive tile counting! :+1:
