  • 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

Traditionally my weakest trial with 3 4* heros, same team as last time:

Same result as last time although I lost my jackal immediately at the beginning of the boss fight due to Skittles special and two followup slashes from Domitia and Scarlett (thanks for hitting the same target, nvm…). Anyhow, Sif as MVP on the field still made it like a walk in the park…

Trainer went to Panther, emblems to the bank…maybe one day I will get a useful sorcerer :rofl:



No real danger of losing. It’s fun watching them kill themselves on Elena’s counter

No reset token today. Emblems to storage for now. Short on resources.


weak in both rogues and sorcerers.
Danza at 4/70 is the only maxed 4*, rest of the team is Skittle 3/60, Hawkmoon©, chochin and jahangir. Way too weak to finish the 3rd tier (or I would have to use way to many expensive items).

Maybe in a few months when I finally get to level sabina (1.1), and have finished jackal (new, next in line for yellow after Kvasir gets his special to 8/8)


I use: Sabina, Isarnia-Costume, Elena-Costume, Khiona and Mitsuko.
I dropped out Marjana this time.

Isarnia-Costume is the Queen of my fight, since some of monsters and bosses are red. Her skill dealt great damages and lower the defense of monsters and bosses effectively. Together with Khiona attack booster Elena and Mitsuko were super destructive.

Domitia was countered attack by Elena skill; at 1400 HP, died so quick…


Sabina +20 / Domitia / Skittleskull / Peters +1 / Marjana +9

I used a couple of bombs to finish off the bosses. Skittles and Peters got one-shotted at various moments.

Trainer for Raffaele, Rogue emblems probably for Marjana, Sorcerer emblems saved up.


Made some changes, brought in Brynhild for Jackal 2 and rearranged the team, giving Kellie and Jackal Brynhild protection.
That eventually kept them alive.

The battle clips

This is one trial where my team use more items : minor mana, antidote, healing pots, and arrows.

Brynhild did make the difference, so more emblems go to her and Marjana. Sorcerers saved…trainer to C.Boril.


My team was Scarlett, Hawkmoon C, Layla, Gil-ra and Dawa😀
I am still at level 26, can’t do 3rd one :cold_sweat:


This is my weakest trial team
I did with

emblems to Ursena and trainer for Almur right now 4/55.
When i finish Almur im seriously thinking in maxing Skittleskull only for this trial (shes at 3/60 now)
and then use her and almur in the team


Same team
Last time Ice Witch was +6 and Ursena was +11

Had better starts

Picked on the slow one

Tiles lined up more with Dom so smashed her next

Patience with the Evade this time

Trainer for Kadelin, emblems saved


I’m going to try a Jackal swarm…


I guess there’s no such thing as too many jackals :rofl:have fun with the army!


My team this time:

  • Domitia +18
  • Sabina +20
  • Marjana 4^80
  • Shredder Kiril +20
  • Skittleskull + 9

Some shiny new options this time, so some substantial changes. Marjana, who I just finished maxing this morning, is in for Ameonna +19. Shredder Kiril takes the place of Brynhild 4^70, who for some reason, didn’t especially impress me last time on this trial. In hindsight, though, I think I probably should have kept Brynhild and swapped out Sabina. Maybe next time. Also, Domitia is up one talent, and Skittleskull is up 5.

Shredder Kiril is a boss; I suspect you knew that already. With his def down, making sure I got everyone recharged for the bosses was more of an issue than previously, but I just topped off Skittles’ mana before killing the last moblling, and entered with all specials charged and a red diamond on the board.

As usual, I worked on taking out Boss Skittles first, simply because evade is annoying, and she is the only boss that doesn’t have it. She fell pretty quickly, and my plan was to go after Scarlett next, but the board felt that Domitia was a better option. OK, whatever. So Domitia went down next. Always seems like Scarlett evades more anyway, so she was the last to fall. Used some antidotes just to save annoyance from the attack down ailments, but I could have finished without them. Otherwise, no items used. MVP to Shredder Kiril; I mentioned him, right? :smiley:

Saving all emblems right now because iron is at a premium with the SH25/HA update. I still have storages and houses to work on in preparation for SGG flipping the switch. Sorcerer emblems will go to Skittles, who is performing OK as a costume cleric with emblems. Undecided about rogue emblems. Probably not going to give any more to Domitia because of the high cost of the last two nodes. Brynhild is likely, but maybe Marjana (if I have the stomach for embleming another five-star). Scarlett is a dark horse, if I wanted to build a tile damage monster for Titans and late war teams to take out stubborn greens. Trainer hero goes to Magni, who popped out of TC20 this week. I’m still smiling about that one. My new Raffale is not, though. (His day will come.)


I am awful at Shadows but this time I improved. This time, I beat 2 levels :smiley_cat:

My team was: Tyrum in his costume (1/1), Domitia (2/60), Sabina (+13), Scarlett (1/1) and Isarnia in her costume (1/1). I used some bombs, axes and arrows on level 2 but I didn’t have to use them all.

I emblemed Sabina up to 14 and I am saving the rogue emblems for Domitia (even though she is stuck at 2/60 because I never have enough trap tools) :sob: :rofl:


BTW, anyone using Norns here? @JonahTheBard? I’m finally getting around to leveling her, and although it will be a while before she gets to a usable level, I’m just wondering how effective she is.


My team:

I had to use some items this time.

New emblems will go to Quintus and Domitia.


I used this team and used some items (3 heal and 1=> axe , dragon and bomb ) as this team weak



Did this with no problem and no deaths. The only items I used were Minor Antidots.

My Team
Scarlett / Brynhild / Peters / Costume Kashhrek / Kelile

Actually a great team.
I swapped out Sabina for C Kashhrek. My first time using him :smiley:
For future ones I will swap around Kelil and Scarlet, I think.


No items.
No reset.
Puss 1 up.
Sorcerers saved.
