Pirates 4* team preparation Dilemma


My 4* Roster is very strong with purple (Rigard-C, Tibertus-C, Sabina, Merlin, Proteus), but that won’t be very relevant for the pirates’ challenge.

I’m trying to think what would be the best setup with my given heroes, and I came up with 3 possible teams:

This is my main thought:

I understand the power of color stacking, but I don’t have a 3rd ascended Red/Blue that will fit

I have no material to Ascend Sonya, but of course, I’ll get her to 60.
Other options I have are:

  • Wilbur (no emblems. Sort of duplicate with Grimm)
  • 3/60 Scarlett (very fragile)
  • Triton (currently level 1, can get him to 3/60 if it really helps)

Last option:
I really think I could use Proteus for the last stages, I pump his mana with pots and block all enemies specials (that’s how I won the last couple of events):

This means I make effort to ghost as many purple tiles as possible - to keep him alive. May use a couple of Healing pots as needed.

I may replace him with Sabina for a couple of levels to counter Marie Therese

or Rigard to counter Lady Locke and Sargasso Debuffs.

Any ideas / comments - are most welcome.

(My other heroes are Ariel, JF, Lianna, Gaderius plus a large set of 4* at 3/60 - that doesn’t seem too relevant)

You should ideally try to run

Kiril - Grimm - Grimm - Grimm - Wu Kong
Boldtusk - G. Falcon - Gormek - Scarlett - Wu Kong

You could always bring more healers if you just go for the completion :slight_smile:

Why Gormek and not Wilbur?!

Thanks for the advice, but:
Kiril, Grimm, Grim 3/60, ?, Wu Kong or
Boldtusk, Falcon, Gormek 3/60, Scalett 3/60, Wu Kong

Is what I can get to - that doesn’t seem to me better than the above…

Gormek brings to your fights a lot more damage than Wilbur when fired after Boldtusk and Guardian Falcon. You could do some exceptions when there will be a green boss in a double/triple boss stage to exploit his weakness to fire but normally Gormek is the better choice IMHO.

Depends if you want to compete for high ranking (top 5000 at least) or not.
For big scores a mono red is your best bet because you have the holy trinity of boldtusk, wilbur and falcon. Gormek is a weak addition to this but he still works. Scarlett is a very good addition because of tile dmg and special is okay but at 3/60 not sure.
You may or may not add wukong, i personnaly hate him in challenge, up to you. If you do so you could also bring jackal instead of gormek.
So a mix of those 7 heroes will work good.
For purely completion i’d say that your first team is good if you like wukong gamble. You don’t need a cleanser just use antidotes. You don’t really need debuffer either just reduce their dmg with axes/arrows.
And beware finley, he will pop your *** !

Can i post my possible teams here ? To find out with you the best ones ? I think i will have to study the event and moobs and bosses because its my first pirate challange i will face .
My aim is complete all tiers as i did in Avalon .

Here the teams .

I will miss proteus this time that purple is repeled

Obviously! Slipped from my mind.

Thanks for the comprehensive response.

Grimm - Boldtusk - Sonia - Gormek - Colen seems most promosing to me, due to the color stacking. In the late stages you may need a bit more healing (pots / or another healer).

You cannot bring Vela to 4* challenge as she is a 5*
