No, not next time either. But it would have been bad advice anyway, since my folks took more damage this time, and having Raff on board was a good thing.
Mobs are never an issue, other than taking some time. Entered the boss wave with all specials charged and the board lined up pretty well under Boril, so I went after him, but man he still takes a ton of damage to dispatch. In the meantime, Joon developed a vendetta against Wilbur, and thanks to two consecutive blasts, I lost a hero on this trial for the first time. Losing my def down made the mobs take even longer, and that made me glad I had two healers on board. Finally slugged through the thing, but this is my least favorite trial, and it isn’t close.
Saving monk emblems to get Leo to +20 for superior talents. Cleric emblems saved for Rhys. Trainer hero to Griffin.
Simpel as always, although I did use 1x Minor antidote on Zenobia because once again, Joon kept targeting her - he did last time too.
Wilbur actually died in this match but I use Mother North, and she revived him instantly so it was good and easy.
Mother North / Ratatoskr / Louhi / Wllbur / Zenobia
i had been saving up clerics for a while on the hopes that i might get her and she was the only Halloween hero i got this year. so… yay? Didn’t want to use up all my clerics so only took her to +12 for now and see how much use she gets.
I was a little concerned that with only really the Mist + Malicna combo for damage that i wouldn’t have enough firepower as that has been a concern before. But it turned out to be enough, with the double riposte, the bosses mostly took care of themselves and with Mist and Malicna dishing out multiple ailments, when the time came to fire Ana-Belle, the heal was indeed quite ridiculous. over 1000 hp of heal on each hero, so i was never in any danger anyway. i also hit the Malicna lottery once too, and that was enough to dish out a lot of tile damage for a few turns also. This is certainly the best shape my team has ever been in at the end of this trial!
Clerics possibly for Ana-Belle if she gets regular use, otherwise to Alexandrine. Monks saved, no important candidates for them right now since Bauchan and Shrub just got theirs. Trainer to (plain) Leonidas.
Same team as always. One day, I’ll be swapping in some of my new toys like Mist and Rana to make this easier, but they have to wait their turns in the leveling queue.
Mob waves were slow, bosses were slow. Everything about this is just slow because of the lack of hitters I have in these classes. Bosses that resist Hansel’s ailment, especially, make it even slower. Nobody was really in danger at any point. Raff is the great reverser of danger. Just takes forever.
Monk emblems saved for Azmia, who showed up from my Black Friday summons. Cleric emblems saved for Rhys. Trainer hero to Rhys.
I had previously speculated that my lineup was too passive for this trial and that I should drop to one healer, so I did that, swapping out Raff +18 for Leonidas. I almost went with Rhys 4^60-something for both healing and some extra punch, but I decided against it. Maybe next time, as I don’t know that Leo made much difference. His kind of mana control doesn’t play well with Hansel’s.
Mob waves weren’t terrible. Entered the boss wave with all specials charged. As usual, they resisted a bunch of my ailments, but eventually, I managed to get them all down.
Monk emblems saved for Azmia. Cleric emblems saved for Rhys. Trainer hero to Rhys.
I’ve completely changed my team. Well thanks to the QoL update, now I can see the bosses in third stage all the time so I can prepare better for them, as I used to completely forget what bosses are in each trial in third stage.
I realized that I only have 1 dispeller in 4*/5* in these classes and that’s C Sabina.
Took her to easily deal with Boril and Friar. Drake to blind everyone, mainly Joon.
I’ll probably replace C Alby with Tarlak next time. Accidentally deleted the trial team ss, but this was the team and items. More time consuming, but used no items.
Ana-Belle up to +18 not long ago. love her. did you know Mist and her are best buddies? you fire Mist, get the value you need from her special, then fire Ana-Belle the turn before it wears off anyway for 60% healing (9 ailments dispelled).
worked pretty well! it was a bit dicey in the middle, everyone was quite beat up because those slash attack hurt. but Ana-Belle brought them back every time. nice to have Sumle not die for once in this trial!
Clerics for Alexandrine probably. Monks maybe to Ptolemy, or saved. trainer to c2Joon.
Couldn’t remember who I usually use, and I was in a hurry, so I just went strong with yellow. Rhys has been beastly everywhere for me since I got him maxed. Also need to learn to live without Elk for a while, as he’ll probably get reset for Grazul when I get her maxed (currently 4^20-something). So Wilbur and Elk out, Joon and Rhys in.
This lineup actually seemed to work really well. As I said, I was in a hurry, so I don’t remember the blow-by-blow, but the fight against the bosses went faster than usual, even with my three yellows being weak against Joon. Rhys’ attack buff seemed like a good substitute for Wilbur’s def down. All in all, I might try this group again, but hopefully Mist will be ready next time.
Monk emblems take Joukahainen up two talents. Cleric emblems saved for Mist. Trainer hero to Mist.
I remember when I used to always want to use mana blockers/stopped/cutters, but on some trials I don’t have or don’t care, like Piety, the team I use is:
Mother North / Ratatoskr / Louhi / Wilbur / Zenobia
Very easy and no items are used.
USUALLY, Joon always targets my Zenobia but today he kept going after Wilbur, which was good at making it a bit faster.
I am currently saving Cleric emblems for my Vivica and Ariel (both are +14 and I only have 31 emblems, annoying sharing them).
Monk emblems I don’t have an urgent need to give to anyone but will most likely give to Ratatoskr, he is only at +12
Trainer hero and all my feeders are currently going on Ma’at since I pulled her
