When it comes to Buff Booster, Gunnar is one of the best tanks IMO. I’ve had great success running him in the past.
Flanking with Melia, backed up by Mnesseus with a small defense boost. Mnesseus to dispel too since the attacker also benefits from attack boosted buffs.
This time I’ve put Chochin in place of Balthazar; I figured that having his wide area attack on flank will be valuable with the attack boosts provided to spread damage all over the enemy. Put Namahage as my other wing; he hits very hard even without a buff.
I love the 3* tournaments. Find them to be heaps of fun. My defence is below. Trying out Bauchen for the first time flanked by Gunnar and Brianne. Double Melia in the wing for the final element of Buff Boosting.
No idea how my defence will do, especially with a new tank in play.
I will set a grade A defense (I’m sure in proportion of 99%). Bauchan tank, flanked by two fast greens and 2 fast blues as wings. The greens will be Mnesseus and Hisan I think. Mnesseus is a must set, since my tank will attract a blue stack, therefore Gunnar. Of course, Belith may also be an option, but is average. Besides, I rarely set healers in defense at raid tournaments. And I use only these 3 colours because I wanna cancel the attacker advantage on yellow, especially. Melia is also a must have in any offensive line-up at this tournament. The main reason I don’t set any purple. I don’t set yellow either, because is the worst colour for a defense. Kailani is slow, Melia’s special is offensive.
Like I said many times before at buff boosters tournaments, it is not only about having buffs. It is more important to not let the enemy have them. This is why any defensive line-up should have a dispeller flank. And like the bloody battles, the speed is very important. Slow tanks/flanks will only result in heavy defeats. Gunnar may look good on paper, but green has 2 dispellers faster than him, so it’s hopeless. Gil-ra is a good tank, but shines only in rush attacks tournaments. At this tournament, not so good with Melia out there. Of course, no matter how we analyse, any colour has advantages and disadvantages. I always choose A > D (advantage > disadvantage). What a coincidence, because I always also choose A > D(attack > defense). “Attack is the secret of defense” - Sun Tzu. That’s why my defenses are always most fast and lethal, using healers only in AW.
Good luck everyone! Since all colours are allowed, we need a lot of it
