:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Survival

  • Trials of Survival is well-named for its general lack of healers in the Barbarian and Rogue Classes — how did you do without healers?

  • Or are you lucky enough to own one of the few healers?
    Healer Options: Puss in Boots, Brynhild

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

:grey_question: Standard Questions for All Trials

  • Did your team change notably since last time?
  • Have Costumes caused changes to your team?
  • Did changes to your team make the Trials any easier or harder?
  • What items did you use, if any?
  • What are you doing with your shiny new Emblems?
  • If you beat Stage 3, who’s eating the 3* Trainer Hero?
  • Anything else interesting to share?

Went through fine with my team. Used a purple banner as a precaution on the last round:
Grimm, Malosi, Costume Richard, Brynhild and Guardian Jackal


Same as last time

Managed to scrape through with healing potions

Emblems saved
Trainer for new project MN × 2


I removed all my emblems from Peters for Marjana so he got hit a lot and I used some healing potions on him, but other than that it was smooth sailing and very easy. I had 3 diamonds for the end bosses, so using Miki to block them and setting each diamond killed them all.

Easy trial for me if I get blues at the end (Jott + Miki + Grimm)


Glad that I got Frosty. The snowman is the only full healer in this trial and he’s blue too. I put him and Nordri under Brynhilds protection in case the slash attack was too much for the 3* heroes. This picture was taken just after 3 turns in final boss mode. I popped a blue diamond before this. As you can see no battle items was used. The trial was easy with this team.


This is the first time I finished the trial without nuking the bosses. Furthermore, I didn’t use any items. :muscle:

Trainer and emblems saved.


Domitia +c.bonus+10 - Grimm +6 - Brynhild +7 - Miki 3.70 - GM +10

Had a few doubts about my team this time. Benched Gretel even though her special is quite useful, preferring Grimm for color stack and def down and Brynhild to have some sort of healing and that managen buff for Miki. I was almost tempted to use Frosty too, but i feared he would be too weak to survive even mobs’ slash attacks. In the end, i had no trouble at all. I managed to get to last stages with some blue tiles on the board, Miki+Grimm made the rest. Nashgar went down immediately, Brynhild’s buff helped Miki recharge fast enough to fire again before bosses, GM just burned to ashes whatever was left of Scarlett and Lionboy.

Emblems are stacked for now. I decided it’s time to ascend Miki, so maybe i’ll start saving emblems for him. Just because it will be a loooong journey i could give some more to Grimm to make him a bit less squishy. Rogue emblems are either going to Brynhild or Frosty.
Trainer to Kiril#2


Completed trial without using any battle items. Went with Gormek +1, Sif 3/56, Bryn 3/60, Li Xiu +15 and Ametrine +1. Totally off colour cause forgot to use costumed Richard, but this team did just fine thanks to the Sif and Bryn.


I haven’t used a 3 star hero in any trial since my roster was much thinniner probably a year ago. Today though I used Frosty here as my only hero that could heal all. Stuck him between Brynhild and Sif and he easily survived and I cruised to a fairly easy take down.


I pulled out frosty too

Used a single antidote against azlars burn, smooth sailing now. Trainer to Reuben, emblems stored.


No difficulties for me with this one. Killer board for the final fight; BK and Miki make up for having a bad one anyways.

No items used, emblems for Miki & Sif. Trainer to Miki # 2


My team:

This is one of the hardest trials for me. Frosty wasn’t ready yet, so I had to use some healing potions and time stop to avoid bosses’ special attacks. They almost died at the same time.


Trainer to QoH, barbaric emblems to finish Gravemaker and the rogue ones will be saved.


4x heroes challenge,… :muscle:

My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Other option


Decent board… already using 2x bomb,… one bomb I though it was at 4/5 wave, I already have very great board setup and all heroes mana ready charged, but it is not… lol.

Great result,… although use some of items for savety.


Emblems keep both for now. Trainer also keep for later.

Now, this is the latest 4x heroes challenge, all completed from Pity to Survival.
Mission has been completed. :+1:
Finally finished! :sweat_smile:

Summary Team Setup for 4x heroes challenge



I didn’t realize we were still doing the 4 challenges?

Also, I thought the original 4 challenge was using 5 x 4* heroes, not 4 x 5* heroes, but hey, either one is an awesome accomplishment.

I used Miki, Malosi, Obakan, Marjana, and Little John. Finished without much difficulty.

Definitely would have stacked blues if I knew the boss fight was going to be all reds, but I didn’t read up first, just went in blind with rainbow.

As for the standard questions…

  • Probably the same team I used last time.
  • Don’t have any new costumes for this one.
  • No major changes to these heroes
  • Used healing pots, arrows and axes
  • Saving emblems for now until I decide who will benefit most from them
  • Don’t even remember the trainer hero color;

If it was red, Noor ate it.
If it was blue, Isarnia ate it.
If it was green, either Grevle or c. Brienne ate it.
If it was purple, Proteus ate it.
If it was yellow, Joon ate it.


That challange already finished at 15th Nov 2020.

This is why I leveled 2x Grimm. For this trial of Survival and also Trial of Strengh (all Red), stage 3 last bosses are Azlar - Elena - Nashgar.
But now, there are other options like: Frank (blue barbarian), Jott (blue barbarian), Sapphire (blue Rogue), Frosty (blue healer).

It is always the same for all members, not random… so it should be Red trainer.


Only reason I don’t remember the trainer color is because I had other trainers from other sources, and just fed them all to their respective colors. I don’t keep spreadsheets on who ate which Aife. :laughing: If it was a red trainer, Noor ate it.

For blue, I do have Grimm and Jott. The final boss battle would have been much easier if I brought them, I’m sure.


My team this time:

  • Domitia +18
  • Marjana +6
  • Grimm +20
  • Little John +20
  • Brynhild +19

Compared to last time, Marjana is up three talents.

Most challenging thing about the mobs in this one is keeping that nickel and dime damage from adding up before the boss wave, since Brynhild can only protect two allies. That’s why I usually burn all specials on wave 2 or 3 to take them out without allowing them to do any damage. Still, by the end of wave 4, I usually need to boost up Domitia and Marjana a bit with health potions, and this was no exception. Lost a blue diamond I was trying to save but I did go into the boss wave with a green one.

Fired everyone at Azlar, as I really don’t like it when he fires. The board was very kind, and by the time Marjana recharged, Azlar was still burning and in very low health, so I gave Marjana’s next special to Scarlett, who didn’t dodge, thankfully. Popped the green diamond just in time to recharge LJ and keep his mana debuff active (MVP?). That also created a nicely timed blue diamond which blasted both Azlar and Scarlett to oblivion, allowing me to focus my remaining specials on Nashgar, who went down quickly. For the first time in a long time, none of the bosses fired, so big win for Team Weasel.

Rogue emblems from a previous stage took Marjana to +6, so no further movement there. Barbarian emblems saved for either Nashgar or Namahage, as the prospect of embleming Azlar doesn’t excite me much. Waiting to see if I get Nashgar’s costume before deciding. Trainer hero to Shadereave.


Took this used a few health and antidote a mass cascade at the end took out scarlet and azar.

Everything in storage at the moment :sunglasses:


I can’t get thorough last stage… impossible without a healer… Barbarian and Rogue class looks like the weakest point at the moment :scream:
