:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Serenity

  • Justice in Stages 1 and 2 blinds your whole team, and Richard in Stages 2 and 3 causes an attack debuff. How did you deal with that?

  • Did having few healer options in the Paladin and Ranger classes impact you? Do you have Costumed Ranger Rigard as an option?

  • Paladin Cyprian can be effective for killing AoE and multi-target hitters like Justice and Richard. Do you have Cyprian, and if so, did you bring him along?

: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?

Thank you as always @Guvnor! :+1:

I will try to 4* this bad boy again. I will also not use Proteus …


@TGW wanted me to summon him here this time. Consider yourself notified. :+1:


Voters for each poll already, How possible?

Ohhh this one starts today? Cool! Thanks for the heads up!

Of course it has to start when I’m the middle of a war… LOL… but that’s okay, I will try to divide and conquer both.

Aw geez. I’m supposed to do it with no 5* heroes. But… but… but… I haz Lianna… and she iz my favorite sniper… :cry:

And no Richard either? Good lord, the 4* challenge is really crippling my main team here.

Okay, okay, fair enough. I think I may have enough 4* options to work with. I’ll give it a try. :+1:


Same team as the last time

Good board, towards the end, a tile cascade helped to dispatch the the bosses. Loots saved for now.


Same team as last time. But Seshat is at +13.
I used 2 Mana on Heimdall just to make sure I have enough life for a long and exhausting fight.
Wasn’t that exhausting after all. Neith did a very good job blinding them, nearly all their shots missed. With the increased drop rates of emblems recently, I decided to raise Evelyn further, now +8. I also will raise Heimdall and Telluria. Trainer to Magni.

Just read about the 4* challenge, will do it next!


Same team as last time, but a little more emblems on the heroes. Didn’t use any items (except 2 antidotes which is nothing).

Emblems and trainer saved for now. May the boards bless you all! :crossed_fingers:


Emblems for Heimdall and Alasie


One of my favourite ones. Easy boss ending . They’d not fire once


4* only challenge again.
No items used.

Regular Team:

Challenge Team:




My 4*s ain’t great sorry, lol
Same team
Last time Aegir was + 11

Shot down Choa as he had blues lined up

Had a blue gem do the double kill at the end

Saving all loot


Used the same team as last time and went through fine. Used one purple banner at the start of the last round.
Red Hood, C.Tiburtus, Telluria, Clarissa, C.Rigard


4* challenge well Triton took Athenas spot.
Kinda messed this up haha, went into the final round with bosses with only tibs ready to fire the rest half full so bad start. Mobs kept hitting Triton on the way witch used more health then I’d liked to. Well all health used 3 time stops 2 dragon banners. Screenshot_20201018-111657

Padalin in storage ranger to Athena trainer miki


4* challenge again!

Linking to my plan:

Original plan: Tibs 1, Tibs 2, Cyprian, Boril, Chao.

Instead, went with:

  • Tibs 1 (normal bec. only 3 bosses anyway, for a little extra damage)
  • Cyprian (double up strong colors vs. Chao)
  • Chao (mana cut)
  • Jack O’Hare (high attack, the defense debuff works with ripsote, strong color v. Richard)
  • Triton (heal boost makes my healing items go a longer way, plus the sniping helps)

Boril goes away because he’d be weak color vs. Lianna, and I already have Cyprian and the Shields. Tibs 2 goes away because his defense debuff duplicates Tibs 1.

Lack of healer meant I had to plan items better. Went with mana potions, 2 slots for heal potions, and Titanium Shields (have been hoarding, don’t use them on Titans anyway). No antidotes, as Richard is the only ailment caster and the attack debuff isn’t too deadly (and much of my damage will come from riposting anyway)

I COULD carpet bomb, but this is more challenging and fun :wink:

Made it to the boss stage with all specials charged. Focused fire on Richard as he hits three. Man, those slash attacks did a lot of damage; I used 2x mana potions on Triton so I could take advantage of his heal buff to keep Jack O’Hare and Cyprian alive. Then 2x mana potions on Cyprian to keep riposte up.

Richard fell first, to tiles and Triton/Chao specials. Then Lianna… Lianna… Lianna murders Triton (gasp)! uh oh. The board wasn’t very good, so she shot again - this time maiming Cyprian AND piercing his riposte :frowning: but thankfully I healed him up so he survived. Note for self - next time take out the Rangers first. But hah! Lianna slash attacked Jack and died to riposte, so bleah. And Chao finally fell to Tibs’ special.

I was thinking this would be the toughest Trial for me, but the team I ended up with had pretty good synergy! Triton’s healing boost working with items helped a lot too! I didn’t even need to use the Titanium shields :wink:

  • Ranger emblems - not sure, might go to Seshat as she’s the Ranger I use the most hands-down. Might also go to 2nd Tibs, who’s only +3, but I use him a lot in War.
  • Paladin emblems - bringing my 2nd Sonya to +20 as I use her a lot in both Raids and Wars - I have her costume so it’s not uncommon to bring both Sonyas along.

Tiburtis,Cyprian,C Rigard,Chao,and Sonya went pretty smoothly didnt use items. Trainer went to Skadi, holding onto emblems for now.


Decided to do the 4* only:

Bench: telluria, Sonya (nothing to dispell), chao, c-LJ.

Went like a breeze. Used 2 minor mana to top up rigard and tibs. Richard was dead before casting, lianna suicided when she sniped cyp and chao soon followed

Trainer to finish c-kiril (2), emblems, don’t know yet.


My team:

No items used.

New emblems will go to second Lianna and Sonya.


My team this time:

  • Thorne +8
  • Tiburtus +20
  • Dapper Noble Rigard +20
  • Buddy +19
  • Lianna 4^76

Compared to last time, Thorne is up two talents, and Lianna is up 44 levels.

This has now replaced the Trials of Decimation as my favorite trial because this team makes it so easy. Pick any mob wave - fire (in order) Rigard, Buddy, Tiburtus, Thorne - watch mob wave disappear. Only hesitation is the need to recharge before the bosses, so I usually do this on wave 2 or 3, but taking out an entire wave in 3 seconds is still pretty nice, and makes the trial not take as long.

Arrived at the boss wave with all specials charged and a purple diamond on the board. Fire everyone at Lianna, and she’s literally almost dead before I match a tile. A couple of matches in, I got a crazy cascade that charged all three bosses on the same turn, but they all targeted different heroes, and I barely noticed that they fired (Buddy’s attack down at work). On the next turn, I took out both Lianna and Richard, and although Chao fired once more, he bowed out a couple of turns later.

Paladin emblems from a previous stage got The Mighty Thorne to +8, so no further movement there. Ranger emblems are now just sitting around waiting for Lianna to hit max. Trainer hero to Raffale.


4* challenge

C.Rigs - C.Tibs - C. Little John - Buddy - Jack O’Hare

Benched a bunch of blues and falcon to go 3-2 color advantage. Debated between Cyprian and LJ, but finally went with LJ because for his AoE and dodge.


Trial went like a breeze. Realised at the last boss level that Ninja tower had exhausted my minor mana and the system randomly allocated arrows! No mana at boss stage!! But didn’t need it. Rigard healed, cleansed and buffed like a boss and LJs dodge worked … every single time! All enemy heroes went off at least twice and got dodged … #DodgeSkills4Cheapthrills! Great synergy within the team and not-great-but-above-average boards. No items used, no heroes lost and the whole trial took just 6 mins!


Emblems banked for Seshat and maybe Clarissa. Trainer to Fura.

Reset emblem to no one because it no longer exists. RIP little red button.
