(hat tip to JAWS_3D for this question)

  • Yeah, I nuked the bosses from space. Ripley would approve.
  • I used some items to finish off the bosses, but it wasn’t the full arsenal
  • I used support items like mana, banners, healing, and maybe a battle item or two, but nothing too crazy
  • I just used some minor items, like healing, mana, or antidotes
  • I didn’t use any items

:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Decimation

  • Trials of Decimation has some good healer options — did you bring any healers?

  • Fighter Boldtusk and Wizard Kiril are hugely helpful for their mix of buffs and healing. Kiril is particularly helpful as a counter to Boss Ulmer’s defense debuff. Do you have either, and did you bring them?

  • The Wizard Class has several excellent mana controllers with Proteus, Merlin, Onatel, Hel, and Guinevere. They can be an excellent approach to preventing the Bosses from firing in the first place. Do you have any of these heroes, and did you bring any of them along?

:grey_question: Standard Questions for All Trials

  • Did your team change notably since last time?
  • Have Costumes caused changes to your team?
  • 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?

Same team as the last time.

The board was great all through, no item used.
Loots stored for now.


i was very distracted with something else, and so I lost a Proteus lol.
I used:

2x Proteus / Boldtusk / Elena / Jean Francois

Throughout all 3 stages I had PLENTY of reds then the last wave + boss wave on the final stage I had none. I was given all yellow and purple.


Completed with same team that I used last month -
Boldtusk, Magni, Onatel, Costume Joon and Jean-Francois.
Just used one purple banner in the last round as a precaution


fini en utilisant que 2 dragons 1 hache


Should have been easy but a horrible bad board streak at boss level and tbh, I was distracted and not really paying attention, had me suddenly down to only Kiril and Alfrike with all bosses still standing, though wounded. But just those two were good enough to see me home, along with a couple of antidotes and mana pots.

Emblems banked. Trainer to Skittleskull. No reset emblem. Apparently we are no longer worthy of shiny red resets!


I think I have almost the perfect team for this trial:

Same team as last time.

Haven’t completed the trial yet, because I’m out of WE and don’t want to waste a flask, but I don’t expect any problems. I may have to use a mana pot to recharge Kiril if I get a bad board, but that’s it.


Did with Boldtusk-Lancelot-Proteus-Jean francois and Proteus.

No items used.

Wizard emblems i will keep for now but i may start embleming Kiril because my main proteus is full emblemed.

Figthers emblems stored for a future worthy fighter 5☆.

Trainer for third rigard.

By the way… again there is not reset token. Am i missing something?


The boss board was really bad, however, I managed to finish the trial with no items used. Had an entire arsenal ready, just in case.

Trainer to Sartana, emblems on bench.


Même plus que parfait

Even more than perfect

No c’est vrai de plus en plus rare

No it’s true more and more rare

Reminder @Ananouk that the official forum language is English. Sorry

This is the trial that I have most depth for.

Team used:

No mats needed. Have been wondering if I should rework to get my max Poseidon in the team, but I like the def down from Isarnia and the double blue with Fenrir is useful for elena.

Emblems for Poseidon and trainer hero for Sartana.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Hu Tao out, Joon-C in…

Other Options…


All mana charged and have a good start board at boss stage with diamond.

Clean without items…


Emblems,… wizard plan continue for 2nd Proteus to +19 and Kiril, yesterday I get Sartana-C, but I will stick to 4* now, because I also have 2x purple at +18, so no need to re-emblem, specially Wizard proteus. Fighter maybe for Killhare. Trainer keep later for Sartana, still need 2 more tabard.


My team this time:

  • Poseidon +13
  • Onatel +7
  • Kiril +c20
  • Wizard Melendor +20
  • Proteus +18

Decided to shake up the lineup slightly. Ulmer’s defense debuff is the only remotely inconvenient thing about this trial, so I swapped in Wizard Melendor for Boldtusk +c20. Red isn’t a strong color against anything in this fight, and I’d rather have a second counter to Ulmer than Boldy’s attack up, which I could get from Kiril anyway. And Melendor’s color is strong against Ulmer. Also, Poseidon is up three talents (fighter emblems from PoV and Wonderland; WOOT!)

Mob waves are a complete afterthought. Entered the boss wave with all specials charged. Also decided to focus Poseidon’s Pitchfork of Doom on Ulmer this time instead of trying to take out one of the wings, who are easier to hit with tiles. This also worked out great, as I got several yellow tiles, and between Proteus and Onatel, the wings weren’t a real threat to fire anyway. Took out Ulmer before he fired, and Oberon died from Proteus’ poison damage on the same turn. Balthazar did get one good shot in on Melendor before he died - even with def up, he put him in the red! - but he was just a few tiles from dying by then anyway, so no biggie. New lineup and strategy = success! :+1:

Emblems saved for Poseidon and Sartana, when I get enough for their next talents. Trainer hero to Quintus.


No picture today, but team was Proteus+7, Elena+5, Kiril+11, Lady Loki+3, Fenrir+4. (on the bench among others Guinivere+9, Hu Tao+3).

The board was funny today: a lot of green and yellow, so I had to protect Proteus with healing and give him some Mana, to silence the bosses. Balthasar fired once, doing no harm, as well as Ulmer, but he got a return from Lady Loki. Trainer goes to Sartana, now 4/74, Guin is +10 now, fighter-emblems in store for Lady Loki.


Took this used 1 health and a few mana

Emblems guin and Kingston trainer mokar


Team last time/ Team this time

Left cJoon on the bench this time to try out Tyr in the trial and he did pretty good. I used one antidote to cleanse my team, other than that it was manageable.
Emblems saved for now, trainer to White Rabbit who is mid 3rd tier.


One of the easiest trials for me. Board was good, Proteus kept the bosses from firing (and Merlin as backup). BT+c-Mel is loads of heal+buff, while colen en proteus keep potent dots active.

Trainer to mokk, emblems banked.


My team this time.

Significant upgrade since last time I was using Ulmer in Isarnia’s place. She’s only 3/63 but still vastly superior to unemblemed Ulmer.

Had great boards and needed no items. Plenty of healing/buffing and the punch of buffed Isarnia/Colen is not to be trifled with. Add in Proteus locking down mana and poisoning and this was quite easy. First time I’ve thought the last stage of a Trial was “easy”, and only about the second time I’ve used no items (forget what other Trial it was).
