It’s time for Trials of Survival!

This is the Fifth of the Trials in the 5th Cycle!

Now that the Class Trials are on their 5th Cycle and seem to have reasonably stabilized, I’ve moved all of the guide information to a separate thread.

  • 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

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

My team last time: Obakan 4/80+6, Marjana 4/80+6, Grimm 4/70, Peters 4/70, Danzaburo 3/60
My Team this time: Obakan 4/80+6, Marjana 4/80+6, Grimm 4/70, Peters 4/70, Guardian Jackal 4/70

-I didn’t have any trouble with this one, even without a healer. I thought I would have to use a lot of healing potions, but ended up not using any. I breezed through the trials, even the bosses on stage 3, mostly due to a number of cascades.
-Grimm’s defense down combined with Marjana sniping did a lot of damage. I had a really strong team.
-The only change to my team was replacing 3/60 Danzaburo with a maxed Guarian Jackal
-Danzaburo is good, but his special isn’t predictable, I also haven’t maxed him. The change did make the trials easier, although Jackal was the only hero that died on me.
-I used antidotes once. That was all.
-The emblems weren’t enough to increase Marjana’s talent grid. I am saving the barbarian emblems for now.
-Guardian Falcon ate the trainer hero.


Same as before, 2 kinds of healing potions.

No I only have two emblemed 4* heroes but I manage to create good color stackings with the 3* heroes.

Only the level and emblem.

Old Team:

New Team:

I do save 1 more Dragon Attacks and Potent Healing Potions but almost risk 20 flags… :sweat:

Used items: 10 Healing Potions, 4 Potent Healing Potions, 5 Bomb Attacks, and 1 Dragon Attack.

Curently nothing, I’m saving the Rogue Emblem in case I can get Jackal and do not have enough resource to give Grimm more emblems.

Ameonna become maxed because of it and now she have 4 emblems.


Waiting for WE bc i just did the monster chest.
Replaced Karil from last time with Little John. Last Atlantis got him and Danza but still debating if should i up Danza. Dont really need more rng in my life than what the game offers already so i fired Little John to max.
Will update later with the old team and once i complete the trial.

Edit: old team:

New team:


Last time Scarlet was 4/45
Musashi was 3/55
Majana had 1 token

Azlar burnt me so had to use the scroll, just out of habbit i used my only dragon bomb :rofl:


I found a purpose for my 3rd Grimm. Invaluable for this Trial alone!


Since last time, I have maxed Grimm and given him emblems, taken a second Grimm to 3/60, maxed Marjana (I think she was 3/70 last time) and given her some emblems (+4 – could go to +6, if I weren’t so worried about hoarding iron these days), and taken Margaret to 2/60.

This put Namahage and Carver on the bench (replaced by Grimm 2 and Margaret), and with two blues, I was cutting through the red mobs on 1-2 like butter. I am currently waiting for the last flag to regenerate for level 3 and crafting some mana potions, as I am strangely near empty. I feel good about this one though.

EDIT: Fifth person was Kelile 3/30. I finished the third level with a gem reset. I would have won if I had taken more healing instead of mana potions. Emblems going (eventually) to Grimm and Marjana. Kelile will eat the feeder. Hopefully next time, Kelile is 3/60 and Scarlett is strong enough to use, since Margaret is really only useful on the last level.


Trainer for Colen…


Did it with

LJ 4-70+1
Scarlett 4-90+1
Grimm 4-70+13
Domitia 3-70
Jackal 4-70+9

Used 4 potent healing and one super healing pot, mostly getting through the mobs and at full health to the bosses, there i used one time stop. 4th slot had been revive scrolls, but there was no need.

Last time the same team, Grimm and jackal with less emblems.
Emblems will go to Grimm and jackal, Trainer will get in stock, but I plan to use him on mitsuko for the last 5 Levels to 4-80 (currently at 3-51)


How much HP do the last bosses have?

Jackal - Grimm - Margaret - Azlar - Kage


Finished the last stage too.
Went definitely better, Little ‘‘Big’’ John special here its really precious, Karil had to say goodbye, end of the games for him lol:

Li Xiu ate the trainer.
No combat items were used in the boss level, just potions. One axe was used in the first mob round.


Previous and current teams:

Little easier.

Dragons x2, bombs x3, healing potions x4

I’ll give emblems to Grimm and Piters.

Second Boldtusk.


3907 each boss last stage.

Yo Zephy what’s it take for a guy to get attacked in this thing? :frowning:

That stuff goes here, man. https://forum.smallgiantgames.com/t/ninth-raid-tournament-faqs-teams-discussion-matchmaking-feedback-defense-team-tracking-rewards/113803/126

How’d we get beat by the likes of you??


I fed the trainer to Hel, I’m maxing her out, Horghall, and leveling up Grimm right now. These trials with no healers is always challenging especially having to be wise in when to use the weapons, this trial we took somewhat of a beating early on but we made it through, the tiles were dropping in our favor and the weapons did the rest


That last moment look like you were in a rush to go somewhere hahaha

Old team:
I swapped out my super antidotes in favor of Potent Healing Potions (the 2* ones), which might’ve been a bad idea, and put my new Grimm #2 in place of Danzaburo (sorry Danza):

The end result…MUCH smoother with 2x Grimm. Gretel held off Nashgar’s special and the board was good enough that they didn’t put up much of a fight:

Grimm moves to +16 and Angry Danza rage ate my new trainer hero and it didn’t even make him feel better :sob:
