My team this time:
- Thorne 4^80
- Tiburtus +20
- Sonya +20
- Buddy +14
- Cyprian +11
No changes from last time; Buddy is up 3 talents, and Cyprian is up 5.
Mob waves are a cinch, since Tiburtus, Buddy, and Thorne all hit three, which is the typical number of moblings. Just have to be careful to get recharged before the bosses, which I did. Fired everything right into Lianna and went to work. Problem is, it doesn’t take long to burn through healing potions with bosses that hit this hard, especially after Buddy’s attack down wears off. Tiburtus went down on a Lianna special. I was able to get Richard and Lianna to pretty low health before running out of healing potions - helped that Richard got 2/3 of his special riposted - but after the potions were gone, my folks started dropping like flies. Richard went down on a single dragon attack, and I hung tough a little longer against Lianna and Chao before taking down Lianna with a bomb attack. Down to just Thorne, I think I could have gotten Chao on tile damage, but I wasn’t sure if I could stand another special from him, so I burned another bomb and took the loot.
Both Cyprian and Buddy fall short of their next talents. Trainer hero goes to Vela, who is almost maxed. (Man, you folks that underestimated her have got to be feeling bad about now!) Help is on the way for this crew, as the Dapper Noble (not to be confused with the Noble Weasel, who is pretty lacking in the dapper department) is waiting in the wings, but first there is the business of maxing Proteus.
