- Sabina +10
- Skittleskull 4^70
- Onatel 3^70
- Ameonna 3^60
- Jahangir 3^50
Not many changes vs. last time. More talents for Sabina. Switched in Jahangir for Ulmer 3^50. Ulmer’s color and special are more useful, but when he dies in the first mob wave, like he did last time, what good is it? Jahangir proved more durable. Downside is that his special overwrites dragon attacks, reducing their duration (but actually doing just as much damage per turn). Would Balthazar 3^50 (my only other option) have been better? Not sure.
Needed a few minor healing potions to keep Jahangir alive through the boss waves (HP below 100 a couple of times, but Ulmer would have been RIP in the same situation). Early part of the boss wave was going well. Entered with all specials charged except Jahangir and a purple diamond on the board, just waiting to be boosted by ghost Ameonna. Knew I was about due for a heal, but Sabina was almost charged and none of the bosses were due to hit on the next turn, so I fired off a purple match 3… and accidentally charged Balthazar’s special. Guess who he targets?
So with my healer down, things get more interesting. Time to fire off a dragon attack. Skittleskull’s attack down is making the wave survivable, and Onatel’s mana control has been keeping boss specials at bay. But then, Quintus goes off, and Ameonna and Jahangir go down. Now I know I’m basically on borrowed time, so I unleash another dragon, 5 axes, and 4 bombs, which kills Balthazar and Ulmer and leaves Quintus on life support. Since he just fired, and I can keep track of when his regular attack is coming, I finish him off with tiles and DoT. Disappointed at my mana management. I think I could have finished this with way fewer items if I had paid closer attention to the bosses’ mana. Onatel kinda gives you a false sense of security there.
Anyway, Sabina ends up one emblem short of +11. Wizard emblems keep accumulating in a large pile, waiting for me to draw Proteus, Kiril, or enough darts to max Onatel (which will be a while, as Poseidon just took my set of six). Trainer goes to Rigard, who I finally pulled and have at 4^40+.
