Very generic, I’d say :wink:

Hmm, have to think about this.

My only maxed 4* Greens are Jack O’Hare and Skittleskull… Neither is exactly tank material. Though either would punish a bad board if they fire, especially Skittles with the attack debuff.

Melendor is still just about to reach 3rd ascension and Gadeirus is parked at 3/18 (dropped Gad when Mel came).

My other maxed 4*s are Proteus, Sabina, Li Xiu, Chao, Sonya, Triton, Grimm, Kiril. Hrmmm…

suggestions welcome :sweat_smile: not expecting much with this. Jack in center because fast mana; if he gets killed before he fires, at least hopefully Skittles and Li will be charged up (Skittles’ defenses are only slightly better than Jack’s, plus Skittles is slow so she gets flank). Sonya is fast and dispels (could also use Chao, but Sonya is sturdier and affects all with her dispel; while Triton’s heal buff is useless). Proteus to draw enemy fire and for opposing weaknesses with Li.

Spread damage and minions :grin:

I would put Buddy as tank; much tougher and activates earlier too… On the left wing a fast mana hero, not Grimm.

Thought about buddy tank but his minions wouldn’t spread across the team. As for Grimm 20 emblems says he stays!!

The minions are more important than a better tank? It’s OK with me. I really hope to meet you in battle :relaxed:

P.S. Just kidding, I couldn’t meet you due to my team power :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I hope to not face many Buddy teams…
x3 Buddy and x2 Caedmon would be really bad news to me.


@Scarecrow matchmaking doesn’t go off defence TP it’s the strongest heroes in your roster available for the tournament, so you may just meet me. BTW what team are you using?

Yep, you are right, I just drink my coffee now. Should I wake up first before posting :joy:

I didn’t decide yet, not even for the tank. Peters or Caedmon? Rogue would be a better flank due to his talent ability and a talented Caedmon a better tank. But I spread out the druid emblems among some heroes and Caedmon is not as tough as Peters at 19… Decisions, decisions… Unfortunately, I don’t have Buddy.

I just pulled Caedmon yesterday, he seems perfect for this tournament!
Oh wait, I pulled him yesterday, he’s level 1. :stuck_out_tongue:

As all of my other green 4* are healers, I don’t expect to do so good in this tournament. :stuck_out_tongue: I put Brienne as a tank.

At the tournament just finished, I had grade A 4 days in a row. I hope at least same performance this tournament. I set 5 fast heroes due to the rule. Imo, with this rule, faster is better than bringing supporting heroes with buffs.


Btw guys, just count how many times you will meet Kasshrek or Melendor at this tournament. Or any other healer. We should make a contest of this :rofl:


Since my choices of non green 4* healers are very limited, ( Cademon, Little John ) I probabely will use a LJ with 18 emblem steps as tank and cademon flank.

This would make: Sonja - Tiburtus - LJ - Cademon - Proteus all with at least 18 emblem steps. Not optimal but that is what is available! :wink:

Good luck for everybody! Will see how it works out.


Okay, my setup like this…
Should I change Wu with Jackal or better Wu Kong? I do not have many choice.
My other: Grimm, Boril, Jackal
Any advice are welcome, thanks.

Jackal would be better. He hits hard and the enemy can’t heal back and he’s faster than Wu also.


Here’s the team I’m running. I know I’m losing the HOT from Gad but his durability and attack boost still makes him worth it, I think.
