I did the 4* challenge and it went surprisingly well for this trial. I had to think through my team a little more, which seems to work out. I should think more often
The 4* bench:
c-Little John +1
Even though I love her 800 attack and DoT Kelile sat for Danzaburo.
Little John’s mana control would have helped, but not at the expense of weak tiles IMO.
With Gormek I already had a strong color D dropper in Grimm and an elemental D dropper in Jackal
The team strategy was basically Jacakal has a massive attack and elemental D drop. Gretel plays into Jackal’s elemental D drop and controls mana. Scarlett is neutral color, massive A value, and drops A herself, Grimm is my strong color general D dropper. This gets me to the last hero, Danzaburo. I took him for a few reason:
1 - He is tough. Most of my other team is glass cannons. I have no healer and can only bring so much healing.
2 - He is yellow and plays into Jackal’s elemental D drop.
3 - 2 of his 3 powers would really help. If he blinds they miss, which is nice. The real power I was hoping for is bottles for the D and mana boost. The D boost would be huge for these heroes.
For the items I was a little risky as I took no back up dragons or bombs. Either my plan would work or I would fail.
The fight went pretty well. I used 1 or 2 health pots in the mob waves. I used lots of specials in order to kill faster so I held up and let the last mob guy live on the last stage to recharge. Going in no specials with this team would be suicidal.
Bosses went well. I used mana pots (4) on Gretel to keep Azlar and Scarlett in check. They never fired. Nashgar fired twice I believe. He was the lesser of 3 evils and would take his hits. I didn’t want to burn that many mana pots on all 3 bosses in case the fight became protracted. Danzaburo’s blind made one of Nashgar’s specials miss. The other special I just absorbed and used antidotes. Azlar died first, Scarlett second, then cleaned up Nashgar. Lost no one.
I used about 8 health pots total, 4 mana pots, 1 antidote.
Danzaburo gave me all freezes and swords, I never got my bottle . He was great though, no regrets.
Congrats @Dudeious.Maximus, winning easy even with 3:60 off color 4*. This can be a brutal trial. I bet the silence helped though.
Nice work no items @jinbatsu. I definitely could not have done that.
