Special Questions for Trials of Piety
Trials of Piety is relatively heavy on healer options — did you bring any healers? And were you able to find sufficient firepower amongst your Cleric and Monk choices?
Monk Wilbur really shines for Quests and Trials, both for making survival easier, and for debuffing enemy defense. Do you have Wilbur, and if so, did you bring him along?
Standard Questions for All Trials
Did your team change notably since last time?
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?
You may also be interested in these older threads from previous times Trials of Piety occurred:
used same team as the previous times
Hansel, MN+3, Ariel, Hatter 3.70, Joon+1
Took some time as usual as no hard hitters other than Joon
took out Joon first he didnt fire once thx to Hansel
Reset Emblem NO
Emblems will be saved for now as i need the food and iron and am not using any of these heroes in my defense team
TH will go to Khoina when she is close to level 80 as am saving them to save some food
I voted that i nuked the boss by mistake where i didnt use any item
Wilbur - Drake - Grazul - Rana - Tarlak
Replaced Rigard with Grazul
My Team Last Time
My Team This Time
The last few times, I haven’t needed items at all, and it’s been easy.
So this time I wasn’t bothering to heal anyone, and then I cascaded yellow into Boril that killed off Leonidas and Wu Kong.
Without them it would have been a tedious time, so I used two Revive Scrolls, and some healing Potions, plus one Time Stop to give myself space to turn over the board.
Not a big deal, but still definitely a lot more items than any recent time.
Next time around I should put Hansel on this team, so I have more firepower and mana control. I think I could probably do without Vivica. Once Joon is taken out, it’s just a grind with no real danger.
Shiny New Emblems
I haven’t decided who’s next up for Monks, but it might be Joon, in which case I don’t have enough for his first node anyway.
I’m also considering giving some to a 3*, maybe Bauchan or Bane.
As for Cleric Emblems, I have enough now for Hansel to step up twice to +3. But I’m due for a building upgrade shortly, so I’m going to wait on Iron until after that.
Too Drunk to Notice
Kiril number 4 ate the off-color Trainer Hero.
And i should of clicked on this is my least favourite
Cut it short tonight, unleash the Bombs lol
Third time completing this one for me. Had to use a few health potions but wasn’t too difficult. A little less difficult than last time because I removed emblems from Li Xiu and gave them to Wu.
Didn’t use any Rez scrolls, but Joon did take a few hefty swipes. Probably should’ve brought some manas to make it easier, but I loaded up with health instead.
Hoarding my monk emblems Monk emblems to Wu, taking him to 18, Boril got the Clerics, bringing him to 15 and 5/5 on the talents. Trainer went to Drake.
Same team as last time
First encounter, fired Joon to cast blind on Boss Joon,
As soon as the effect wore off, boss Joon picked interest on Leonidas, and persistently attacked him until he died.
Boss Joon being the only direct attacker…focused attack on him and eventually got rid of him.
The ríposte was mitigated by Wilbur, but board was not clement enough for his repeated recharge as a result Joon from my team also quitted eventually.
From thereon it was a long protracted battle, healing, tiles attack, healing, tiles…
Items used : 4 axes and 5 carpet bombs
Emblems are banked, trainer goes to Vivica.
Emblems stored till I can collect enough to use them. Last trials’s team:
I onlt finished 1st stage
This time I did 2 stages. 1.26 Elkanen>>> 3.50 Tuck. I had no axes nor bombs (spent on Morlovia) so Boril Vivica needed a lot of patience. I think focusing Vivica was not a good idea, that defense buff dropped my tile damage. I got scared when I lost 1st Bane but thanks to arrows and mana pots could kill Vivica. Boril was easy after this.
When I took the screenshot noticed that I forgot to change the troops from previous. Fixed it.
No problems once again.
Couple changes on previous times… Took OUT Wilbur and Rigard and put in Ariel (3/64) and Grazul (4/53)
Team this time was: Hansel, Rana, Drake Fong (+6), Ariel (3/64) and Grazul (4/53).
Made it a bit harder on myself but made it thru without any real difficulties.
No reset token
Emblems being used on Drake (got enough to get to +7) and the cerics being saved for Ariel
Very decent boards.
Didn’t need any items.
Trainer to Guin.
Short boss battle due to heavy tile cascades and combos.
Last Time Team
My Team This Time
Same as before, only Rigard is maxed now.
Good start at boss stages, all mana ready to fire, no use any items so far.
Everything under control, used 9 minor mana, 3 mana and 4 bomb. I need more hitter, next project after Merlin, I will level Gafar.
Emblem keeps, because lack of food, still need food for leveling and ascend some heroes.
Trainer keep, wait for yellow, Chao is still at 2.50.
Used my usual suspects. Lot of healing with Rigard and Tarlak. Leonidas and Hatter for hitters and Wilbur for general awesomeness. Took out Joon first, then Boril and Friar Tuck. Minimal item usage. Monk emblem for Wilbur. Cleric emblem hoarded for Ariel in future. Trainer hero hoarded.
First clean run on a Trials in a long time! Phew!!
Kunchen and Drake get the emblems. Trainer waits for “Mr. Right”, if he ever comes along
No items used. The new emblems will go to Wilbur and Vivica.
LOL always a good problem!
Again, top many healers, only Li Xiu as attacker. Last time, I said I will make Elkanen my new project, but since I did not finish Horghall, I am not any closer to win third stage of this trial, so I skipped it and farmed some feeders using the WE. Also will put Boril into the trials of piety project, to get a rainbow team.
This is probably my easiest trials. I used one bomb by reflex to reduce attack score, probably didn’t even need that.
Rigard +20 / Wilbur +20 / Leonidas +1 / Agwe +0 / Joon 3/70
Joon replaced Wu Kong 4/70 from last time. Plenty of firepower with the three hitters. Mostly poured damage into Joon with Wilbur active to take down Boril, then it was easy. I got several “mega-cascades” in the course of the battle, which didn’t end up doing too much damage from the riposte.
Hu Tao is almost finished and took the trainer. Assuming I get darts sometime soon, Joon will presumably get emblems. Cleric emblems are banked, as I can’t see embleming Agwe or Boril at the moment.
Finished but I don’t like this one. I used to have to go mono yellow but now I have Rigard and Buchan if that counts. So I ran Rigard +19, Vivica 3.70, joon+9, wu, li xiu both max. Wu helps a lot. I almost cleared the last stage bosses fast but they barely survived, fired and healed plus boril went off.
Even with joon hitting hard it’s not enough and li xiu is nothing. Having 2 healers in Rigard and Viv is great but no debuffer. This is why I want elkanen. He attacks and fits here.
No yellow project right now as I decided to skip going for neith and hold till Christmas event. Kadilen ate the trainer and a few others to get to 4.76. Those last 10 levels are insane…4200 Plus per level…ughhh
No snipers. Thanks Wu Kong
