- I used some items to finish off the bosses, but it wasn’t the full arsenal

Special Questions for Trials of Mysticism
Ulmer and Skittleskull both debuff your whole team, for defense and attack, respectively. How did you deal with that? Some possible options are using Proteus to prevent them firing, using antidotes to remove the debuffs, or using Kiril to overwrite the debuffs with buffs. Did you use any of those approaches, or perhaps others?
Unlike some class combinations, Wizards and Sorcerers offer some healers to choose from. Do you have any available, and did you bring any on your team?
Proteus truly shines on Quests in general. Do you have him, and if so, did you bring him along for these Trials?
Standard Questions for All Trials
Did your team change notably since last time?
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?
You may also be interested in these older threads from previous times Trials of Mysticism occurred:
team as last time
Zeline+12, Kiril 4.70, Victor 4.80, Ursena+9, Sartana4.80
Kiril and victor countered ulmer defense down
emblems will go to Zeline and Ursena
trainer hero will go to Onatel
Reset Emblem: YES
My team was Kiril+2, Guinevere+2,Sabina+8,Proteus4/35, and Rasselkopp+7 (don"t recall the English name). Used some dragon storm and 1 role of wonders when the bosses killed Proteus with normal hits. Proteus was the match winner together with Guinevere’s mana deduction. The constant healing of 3 healers helped to slowly demoralise the bosses. Dragon Storm killed Ulmer and Balthasar wit DoT, just before they were about to fire, with nothing from my side to set against. Emblems will be stocked for Quintus, go to Kiril, who also makes a great appearance in the Morlovia trials. The 3* trainer either to Proteus or Seshat.
I should rely more on carpet bombing for the bosses, so I had to pay the 75 bucks again -.-
Switched out Skittles 3/60 for Anzogh 4/22, I think that was a good decision, as Skittles is not maxed and too squishy. Anzogh added some good damage to the waves, on the bosses he was more mediocre, I think their defense is too high. But I guess Skittles wouldn’t have added more damage than he has.
So the team was
Emblems: Sabina 2 nodes, Proteus 1
Trainer went to Sartana
Rest token is stocked
Same team as last time, only a few more talents: Kiril - Sartana+9 - Sabina+20 - Quintus 3.70 - Skittleskull
I still don’t have a full maxed team, which makes this one of the hardest trials for me. So now I finally gave in and ascendded Quintus. Sill got enough tabard is any other purple shows up. 4* trainer from the halloween quest will come in handy.
Anyway. Emblems go to Sartana and Jahangir. Trainer goes to Quintus
Kiril - Sartana - Mitsuko - Hel - Onatel
But swaped out Ursena 3/70 for Satana 3/70
Then like last time, board didnt play nice and had to drop a few bombs
Emblems and trainer for Ursena when i get that Tabard from the Vampires, wooo
Pretty easy trials for me because of three healers and Proteus. Used some mana pots to fire Proteus. Emblems will go to Cheshire Cat and Proteus once I have enough for their next nodes. Trainer hero and reset emblem hoarded.
My team last time was: Balthazar (maxed) - Sabina (3/54) - Jahangir (1/22) - Kashrek (3/22) - Ulmer (2/21)
Since then I was lucky to pull Quintus and Ameonna, though I hardly level them up at all.
So my team this time was:
Balthazar (maxed) - Sabina (3/60) - Quintus (1/8) - Kashrek (3/29) - Ameonna (1/9)
I beat the first stage but was slaughtered in the second. I didn’t feel like using items because I’m not really excited about giving items to any of these heroes.
I recently pulled a Kiril who I’m more excited about but he’s still 1/1.
Just got an emblem of re-initialisation this time.
team : Lady of the lake (4:80), Anzogh (4:80), Kashhrek (4/70), Sabina (4/70), Ameonna (3/60)
Team last time
After gathering dust for a long time, I decided to put Kashhrek in for unmaxed Skittles skulls, since she dies so quickly from slash damage., I was amazed at Kash performance.
The team this time and the changes
Although, the bosses were mana stasis, yet repeated slash attacks clipped off Hel first and then Sabina , didn’t bother to waste healing potions on them since the bosses were also dying of tile damage.
Kashhrek amazingly kept his flank alive all through.
Only 1 minor mana potion used.
Banking all emblems, reset and trainer hero for now.
My team was sonya,mitsuko,guin,ladylocke, and onatel.
Was always at least three opponents so lead out with onatel to slow mana and lady locke to start dot. focused on ulmer till close to charge and used mitsuko to reflect his special then used guin to control mana. Was pretty easy only used one health pot. Double yellow helped with gem damage from the other 2 and lady Locke special just kept ticking
Lakey joined my team @3.70.
The board worked just awesome for me, since I was able to keep multiple dragons and diamonds up to the bosses.
Watch the boss battle with that total board clearance at the beginning of the boss fight.
Used a single small mana potion, gave the trainer to Panther and saved the emblems for Ursl. Her next step will need 125…
Here are my teams for both profiles:
I only did the first stage atm, but I plan on doing the second stage once my WE replenishes.
Did the second stage on my main and got enough emblems to ascend Proteus to +7. Which puts my main team at the 3600 mark which I am very happy about.
Alright, did the second stage on my alt. Had to use all my items and spend 75 gems but I made it through. Didn’t have enough hitters to be able to do anything though.
My team this time was the same as last time, with an additional rank each on Mitsuko and Onatel.
- On the bench: Sabina, Ameonna, Merlin, Natalya 3.70
- Up and coming: Cheshire Cat 3.29, Onatel #2 2.23
No issues getting to the bosses with everyone full on mana, with three diamonds to boot. Same strategy as last time, lock down Balt and Quint and let Ulmer suicide on Mitsuko’s reflect. I used bombs for the debuff, to help keep Proteus alive.
Even with the diamonds, I felt like I was running out of tiles most of this match. Balthazar dropped first, which broke my strategy, since Proteus and Onatel can’t help but affect them both.
A crazy cascade took Quintus out and charged Ulmer. Kiril quickly flipped his debuff and Sartana finished him.
Trainer to Cheshire Cat, emblems to Onatel and Mitsuko.
I was so psyched to pull Quintus from TC20 because my Sorcerer depth suuuucked and he’s the only TC20 hero in this group. Screw the reviews about him, I power leveled him hard and threw him right into the fire…and the fire burned him right up lol. Do I regret using tabards on him? Nope. Do I use him a bunch? Yup. But did he make my Trials team notably better? Questionable.
A cascade went off in the last non-boss stage that killed what was left so I lost my blue diamond and started the stage with an unfavorable board:
Made it to the very end though. A Quintus + Ulmer double whammy decimated my team and I had a decision to make:
So close but I was left with all yellow and green tiles on the board. Fire a couple off the sides and hope I get better tiles and don’t trigger another Quintus special? Or just use the bomb? I used the bomb lol. Still pretty happy here.
Ran with Sabina, Mitsuko, Kash, Kiril, Hel.
Considered using proteus in place of Sabina but it turns out she care in more handy.
Trainer is bunking down in the dungeon for now. Emblems are waiting.
Kash surprised me too @Oliz. He held himself and his flanks up quite well.
My team last time
My team this time
As you probably can tell this team worked out immensely better than the last. I was really happy to get another color in there. The 4 purples vs purples really had me struggling the last time. I used arrows and axes plus healing and mana pots. Proteus will get the trainer, he’s so close to max. I’m going to get Ameonna to +20. I’m determined. Haven’t assigned wizard emblems. Did get a reset emblem!
Sabina, hel, lotl, onate,Sartana
No items required
