I beat it doing the 4* challenge. Here was the team:
Ever since I got Gretel this challenge became easier. . She was mandatory for me along with my only healing option in Boldtusk
I decided to keep Grimm in because he is strong on the bosses even if he is weak in the mobs. Colen I kept for high tile damage, color stacking, and the fire can prevent the obnoxious revives without having to do anything. I have this hero, and Azlar, that are maxed and rarely used but some people love. I guess just trying to prevent them getting too much rust.. Finally picked Hu Tao to stack yellow with Gretel and, as those who have read my other marginally coherent ramblings lately, I am on a big kick with blind heroes lately .
Gormek was benched as I had a D dropper in Grimm and didn’t think he added enough otherwise. Little John I strongly considered for assisted mana control, but being weak on bosses I opted to load up on mana pots and roll with Gretel. Apparently c-Caedmon was an option. I learned this after the fact, but probably wouldn’t have gone with him anyways (that’s what I will say at least). I can cleanse with antidotes and he is weak on bosses.
Mobs went fine. When I killed the last mob guy before the bosses it somehow triggered a massive tile cascade so I essentially started with a whole new board as if it were turn 1 in a raid .
Bosses went fine. BT up, Grimm for D down, and “give her”. Hu Tao made some otherwise strong slash attacks miss. Nashgar fired once and died first. Azlar died next without firing (the story of his life ). Elena fired when she was almost died from a mini cascade. She was so close I could shoot into her riposte to finish though without any real concerns.
I forgot a victory shot so you’ll just need to take my word for it.
Trainer to Guillinbursti.
Fighter emblems building for Magni’s next node, but part of me wonders if Hu Tao has earned some? Probably Magni still…
Barbarian I need to decide as I got Gretel to +18. Here are the options I am weighing:
1 - Bring Gormek, Grimm, and Gretel from 18-20
2 - Start c-LJ to +18 as he has been getting more love from me too. Not quite AoE blind level love, but love
3 - I guess start Azlar. This is a distant third. I rarely use Azlar and it doesn’t seem worth the cost. Granted I may use him more if he has talents, but Incould be boosting heroes I currently use all the time above. He is my only red 5* though.
Good luck to those still trialing!
Jott is a monster in this trial!
You made Shadereave look like a cool must-have hero @sleepyhead!
That was amazingly fast @Olmor. I am glad I didn’t blink during it, I’d have thought my video skipped.
Nice @Oliz. Nodri, Grimm, Jott is a brutal combo on this mission (or a red titan)
Another Sumitomo sighting @jinbatsu @Dudeious.Maximus!
If both BT’s are active does it stack @Sarah2? That would be nuts.
Cool Lancelot sighting @SamMe!
Doesn’t Grimm do that too? Granted elemental drop vs general D drop. You and @ThePirateKing have me leaning towards option 2 for my barbarian emblems.
