🔵 [June 5, 2019] Trials of Strength Teams – Share Yours & Discuss!

To my suprise I have finished this trail without using any items at all.

Only change I made in team is that i swapped Gormek +0 for a Grimm +10.
All other hero’s where already maxed before.

Line up:
Grimm +10 | Bold +0 | Elena +5 | Sir dances a lot +0 | Little John +0.

Went into the last level with bosses fully charged all hero’s
Let loose the juice and then slowly grinded them down while Bold could heal them up where needed.
Key was Little John his mana gain reduction, none of the bosses got 1 special in at all.

Recently got Azlar from TC20 so he got fed with the trainer.
Emblems I have not decided yet who will get them.


No good boards, so lost too many heroes before reaching the bosses. Saved my arrows, axes and bombs for another day! Here’s to hoping I’ll have Boldtusk next time around!


My team from last Trials of Strength:

My team from this Trials of Strength:

Grimm #2 wasn’t quite ready yet but I threw him in for fun to see how the team would do. The whole team is a bit squishy and LJ was getting pounded, I lost him in Round 3, just couldn’t keep him alive. The double Grimm helped a lot in the Boss stage though so I look forward to finishing him off. The final result:

Didn’t have to use weapons so I’m very pleased with the result. Super Grimm stuck at +14, 2 emblems short of another Wound level.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

The Battle

This one remains pretty straightforward for me.

I used a few more minor healing than last time due to a slower board during the Bosses, and swapped in some minor mana to feed Boldtusk when needed, but otherwise it’s nothing major.

The Bombs are a nice safety net, but I didn’t use any this time or last at the least.

Shiny New Emblems

Boldtusk stepped up twice to +14, and Grimm stepped up once to +12.

RNG is really starting to show in Emblem distribution, with my Monk Wilbur at +18 and Barbarian Grimm at +12, even with these extra Barbarian Class Trials completed.

Still Hungry

Gormek #2 got the Trainer snack, and is slowly approaching max for my War bench.


Boldtusk 4/70+10

Yes… and should have been better… (more on that latter :sob:)

Maxed and emblemmed Boldtusk, Grimm, & Hu Tao.

Old Team:

New Team:

Should have been if not for my silly mistakes. (more on that latter :sob:)

10 Healing Potions, 5 Potent Healing Potions, 5 Axe Attacks, & 5 Bomb Attacks. Actually, it was more. (more on that latter :sob:)

Gonna put Hu Tao to +4 and then focus on Boldtusk untill +20.


Lost 20 flags… almost lose 40… :sob:

I should have won the first attempt, many items left and I just need to throw 1 bomb to win it… but I lost it… here are my mistakes:

  • I forget to review my attempt at the previous trial, I thought Rudolph was merely for stacking thus I let him die early, not remember that I use the mana cut to prevent Azlar and Elena to fire early or at the same round…
  • I neglect to check Colen’s HP and he died before boss round.
  • I forget that Elena have revive talent, I kill her with gem, charging her in the process but she revive and fire her skill, killing my Hu Tao and put Grimm at critical condition, Azlar slash attack finish him and I lost… Azlar’s HP was bellow 300 and I have abundance items left, should have use healing potion or axe or bomb which remain unused… :sob:

On the second attempt, the puzzle was insanely bad, lot of green and purple all waves, I have to use all items and I almost lost it again… :neutral_face:


Sounds like quite the ordeal! Glad you made it through on the second time. :slight_smile:


Last time my forge wasn’t leveled up and my team was Grimm 4/70, Colen 3/60, plus Rudolph and other maxed 3*. I got my ■■■ handed to me by Azlar in the third stage…

This time my team was Boldtusk 4/65, Colen 4/70, Hu Tao 3/60, Grimm 4/70 and Rudolph+7. Boldtusk made all the difference, his healing allowed me to finish the first 2 stages easily. During third stage Azlar gave me some problems again but I nuked his mane with some bombs.

I got more emblems for Grimm and the trainer went to BT :slight_smile:


I just noticed we have the same team :smile:


It’s one of the easier trials. With BT and Grimm it’s quite easy to nuke the last trio after adding some good hitters.

Burrito comes in handy to dispel counterattack.

and lol at all the greens coming out.


Did it with a couple bombs used at the end (only brought the 2).


Azlar - Kage - Grimm - Magni - BT

I love shaming past me. My team last time:

And this time coming in at full rainbow!

DAD GUM ZIPPIDY DOO DAH I DIDN’T CHANGE MY TROOPS AGAIN. Oh yeah, and I replaced Gormek with Little John too I guess.

So… um… Boldtusk + Grimm + Panther + LJ can wipe a stage 3 trash mob board. I went into the next wave with only HuTao. :sob:

I dunno. I think I did alright.

That was after everybody blew their specials, used one bomb and dragon, and blew a green gem that didn’t cascade, so maybe 4-5 tiles. Ouch.



Ty again zephyr. :+1::+1::clap::raised_hands:


My team this time was effectively identical to my team last time. Others available for this fight included Gretel (who rolled her eyes at me) and Poseidon 4.73 (who just glared at me). I can’t see rotating Kage out (his dispel is really nice for this fight), or either Grimm (blue tile damage for the win), or either healer (meat shields and +atk).

The boards were kind, and I made it to the last screen with everyone but Delilah ready, and a yellow diamond to boot.

I foolishly missed starting with BT (what was I thinking), but still did decent damage. Azlar went off, which required an antidote, but I managed to drop him with a handful of blue tiles.

Nashgar attempted to kill Kage, but fortunately, failed. Elena went off, and I used Kage to drop her counter-attack. The reloaded Grimms and a few blue tiles finished off Nashgar, though there was some pain involved. Below is Elena’s last stand.

I’m not sure what I will do with the emblems. I am closing in on the 125 emblem cost ranks on both Delilah and Kage, and I’m just not sure those are worth the price. Queen has already decreed the fate of the 3* trainer, “Off with his head!”


My team this time:

  • Gormek + 9
  • Grimm 4^70
  • Poseidon 4^49
  • Valen +19
  • Namahage 3^50

Compared to last time, Gormek has +2 talents, Valen has +4 talents, Poseidon has grown up A LOT (from 2^55), and I switched out Gato 3^50 for Namahage (a mistake; I was thinking that Namahage hits harder, but I forgot about the red mobs/bosses.) I’m stoked about finally collecting 6 darts and making Poseidon my first-ever five-star to reach final ascension. I have been anxious to see what kind of difference he would make on this trial, since Gormek and Grimm are staples in my lineup, but it’s been a pretty signficant drop off from there. I finished last time, but just barely, and with carpet bombing.

First two stages were barely a speed bump. Final stage, I just handed out some healing potions to keep folks kicking, and had the excellent fortune to enter the boss wave with all specials charged and two diamonds on the board. Started with a dragon attack (to start the DoT) and a bomb (to effect attack down), then fired all specials on Elena. Don’t want that counterattack to fire, and hitting the middle target gets def down on all enemies. The cascade from the diamonds did some nice damage and recharged Valen and Grimm, so I was able to finish off Elena before her special fired, but Nashgar did fire, thankfully into the Giant Bag of Meat that is Gormek, who can take it. I thought a second shot from Poseidon’s trident would get Azlar before he fired, but it didn’t, and all of a sudden we were in trouble. Everyone critical and burning, but the enemy also in bad shape. I didn’t want to use any more items, so I kept firing tiles, killing Azlar but losing Grimm, Valen, and Namahage to DoT. Had Nashgar on the brink when he killed Poseidon, but I recharged Meat Boy with health potions and finished the job with tiles. If I had left Gato in the lineup, I think this would have been a much easier win. Have to remember that for next time.

Sadly, Gormek and Valen are both on talent nodes that require tons of emblems, so no immediate progress there. (And Valen may as well get used to the idea of going back to being a boring, regular 3-star, because Poseidon has a reset emblem with his name on it.) Also, no red project at all on my roster right now, so the trainer hero joins three other trainer heroes and a Jahangir, waiting to jump start one who is worthy. Main takeaway here is that I was able to manage this trial with very low item use, a notable improvement. I’m happy.


No major change to the team , if anything Elena and 2nd Boldusk, and Magni have gotten stronger.

TP : 3500+

Aftermath : Elena revived 3 or 4 times

Happy with the win and no carpet bombing :fireworks::sparkler::sparkles::tada::confetti_ball:

Initial team setup .
Intended to carpet bomb , strangely enough I used only 1 bomb attack at the very beginning due to no Reds gems and no health potions so one of my characters almost died .:jack_o_lantern:


@1Peterboy it seems something went wrong in your quoting attempt…

You need to add “enter” before “[quote=…]” to repair it:

This is my 2nd go round! The 1st time around I lost I only had arrows, 2 time stops and Healing potions because my forge was upgrading to 20! They crushed me but I came back and won this round emptying out my arsenal!
