4* challange…

My Team Last Time

My Team This Time


Tiburtus is now finally fully +20, because of raining emblems… :wink:
Other options
2020-10-18_20-32-48

Battle


Decent start at boss stages.

Keep struggle without using any items,… no problem :wink:

Reward


Emblem paladin I’m not sure if I will continue for Telluria, keep it for now. Ranger… Finally 1st Tibs is +20, now I think I will go for Buddy, 2nd Tibs is only at 4.1 and max the costume only, so no need emblem for him this time.
Trainer goes to Jott, he is almost max.

EDIT: just look back at above post by @Circe, next time I think I will switch Cyprian with Little John Costume. +att -deff and Aoe is usefull.

EDIT2: just look back at bottom post by @Muchacho, next time I think I will switch Tibs-C to Tibs-CB, because there are only 3 bosses, and he hit harder and -def down is more longer then his costume… :muscle: :+1: :wink: :coffee:

I did it as part of the 4* challenge and it was surprisingly easier than I thought with no healer.

The team:

The bench (Sonya basically. Off color, nothing to debuff):

So what made me a little hesitant, aside from no healer, is this challenge made me use a lot of heroes I do use often and didn’t know how they would play together.

Tibs was mandatory for a hard D drop. I usually fire him after Buddy to extend the D drop.

Buddy for D drop, A drop, and minions for pseudo heal.

Cyprian because I love riposte in these trials. I was a little unsure how to play it with minions from Buddy, but figured having both of those heroes play at not perfect synergy was better than any other option I had.

The last two slots are where I struggled. I took Chao figuring his mana cut may help more than Sonya debugging nothing. I would rather have a weak hit with a mana cut then just a weak hit.

LJ costume. I literally have never played with the costume activated and had to look up what it actually did :laughing:. Dodge, hmmm :thinking:… that also plays weird with riposte. I tried to space the riposte and the dodge to avoid overlap aside from Buddy in the middle.

All in all it worked surprisingly well. Better than my main team with a couple of 5’s to be honest. I am not sure if I was lucky or if I am into something. I would describe boards as above average, but not great.

I used no items until the bosses. I used a few health pots and that was it. Cyprian died when I was paying attention. I could have easily finished with everyone alive :+1:

Richard went down first, then Lianna, and finally Chao:

Here’s to more trials like this than the first one which involved me being down to one last hero and blowing the bosses away with bombs and dragons :beers:! :laughing:

EDIT:
Paladin stored for Richard. Cyprian won’t go higher as the last nodes involve a lot of D buffs

Ranger stored to either get Lianna up 1 or start Athena. I eventually need to split between the two.

Trainer to Justice on her way to 80.

@sleepyhead I had no idea Triton boosted healing pots. That’s a cute little fun fact. I don’t have him so only see him in raids, where pots do apply.

I did as well - more info on the challenge here

Great set-up for the boss stage, so this went smoothly in the end - no materials needed.
Emblems will go to Aegir and Neith once I have enough for the next level.

Here’s my team

Ready for the boss stage:

Shortly thereafter:

@BigSlick nice team! I have always wondered how effective Chao could be heavily emblemed as a sniper. I always prioritized other rangers RNG decided to grace me with. Did you go A path on nodes? I would love to see his card if you have time and any feedback on him.

:beers:

I use him in mono Raids and mono War. Pretty effective. Went down the left side of the Emblem track through level 10 for the defense and attack multipliers, then the right side through level 17 and back to the left for the health multiplier at level 19.

Finley +19 / Lianna / Khagan / Telluria +14 / cRigard +20. (Same as last time modulo emblems)

This was completely a breeze. Used 1-2 healing potions (HoT not ideal for hero in deep red) after a boss hit, but otherwise nothing.

Haven’t looked whether the last node is worthwhile for Finley, Tell needs nodes still. Green trainer will be going to a second Caedmon.

While C-Tibs would simply hit all, the downside to Tibs CB is you must ensure to set target at the center, otherwise there are chances that he will just hit two, if uncontrolled.

@Muchacho 4 star challenge

5 star probably would have went with this…

Nice work @Mallix, lots of costume bonuses :+1:. You’re a lucky summoner :crossed_fingers:

It’s cool your team would be COMPLETELY different. I bet c-Boril doesn’t otherwise see the light of day much with the awesome heroes you have :laughing:

:beers:

@Muchacho yeah not a big fan of boril COSTUME. There was a 4 month period where i spent heavy and it was the perfect time to get great heroes. I only have 2 4 stars emblemed total. costume was the next best option. I actually dont have many other 4 star options. Im all about 5s. :grin:

Team last time


Same team this time, with the exception that Telly is up to +13. No items needed, spent a few items on Ninja tower, so stores are a bit low on time stops and a few other things. Really good boards though… if I had brought purple, lol. Actually it went pretty well considering Telly was my only healer.

Emblems saved for now, trainer to Heimdall.

Thank you for sharing, all :slight_smile:

I managed the first two stages, with:

Berden
Ei-Dunn - 14 emblems
By-Ulf - not fully levelled yet
Gunnar
An-Windr - special not maxed

I probably cannot overcome the final stage - do you think? It recommends 4000 in team power.
Mine is 2517. I have Azar fully levelled too use as well - that´s the heroes I got that fits the class requirements.

Stage 1-2 was fairly manageable though, so those recommendations usually do not make me shy away from a challenge. But 20 World Energy Flags is a lot to spend if the risk at failing is very high. :frowning:

Thank you :slight_smile:

My general rule of thumb for myself from when my roster was less developed is that if I can beat the 2nd stage without using any items, I can probably beat the 3rd stage with items.

The first time I beat this trial I used about 2600TP - granted I did have 3.70 Telluria at that time but the rest of the team I used was 3*s. Might be harder since by ulf only heals nearby but you’d be surprised what you can beat! I would take timestops, dragon bombs, bombs, and mana usually. And having a healer when underpowered was essential because you’d really need them to survive the mobs without using items.

Nice work clearing the first two stages and good luck!

I didn’t do the 4* challenge lol because I’ve never tried this trial without Telluria :stuck_out_tongue: and no costume rigs so no healer lol. I got lazy and wanted to save items XD. Kudos to those that did do it. (Also I’m a bit item poor atm after ninja tower :rofl:)

Beat it easily with Tell +9, chao+18, tibs+20, clarissa+4 and sonya no emblems

Trainer saved for misandra
Ranger emblems saved for Onyx and Paladin is for Clarissa :slight_smile:

Team:

4* challenge
I decided to make things more interesting by not taking my cRigard +18. It’s supposed to be challenging, right?

I sailed through the first 2 stages, but holy crap did things go sideways against the final bosses! I used a ton of items in stage 3 to pull it out. Emblems are being saved. Trainer hero to Ariel (3/50). This has been a nice challenge for me so far. :grin::+1:t2:

:man_facepalming:

Well I autoplayed the first two stages with no problems, was saving the third stage for after war… real life struck. (grrr… won’t go into details… annoying stuff)

Woke up early this morning hoping that trials would still be there so I could attempt the last stage 4* challenge… it was gone. :cry:

Is it my imagination, or have they shortened the duration of the trials? I thought they used to last longer than 24 hours… or am I confusing them with other events?

Thank you for your kind, encouraging words and tips :slight_smile: I didn’t quite manage it this time. But next time…!

I did the first two stages for ages, it’s just growing your rosta you will get there, I even maxed some unlikely hero’s just for quests as they hit.

Pretty sure they’ve always been 24 hours. Sorry for that pesky real life that gets in the way of our fun sometimes.

I highly recommend this approach, and I did the same thing. I even set up a spreadsheet to keep track of which trials I needed better heroes for, and that was (and still is, to some degree) a factor in my hero prioritization. (Recently pulled for and maxed Gafar just to deal with Vivica on the Trials of Fortitude, and I’m still looking for the right combo to consistently deal with the Trials of Justice without using items.) Emblems are emblems, and enough of them can make even a lackluster hero significantly better.
