Annoyingly on this stage you’re going to have to deal with Champions coming back to life, whether that be Bushi with his passive Revive on Death, or the whole team if Crimson Helm gets a turn, outside of this, there’s not REALLY much to worry about.
A small caveat to that would be Reflect Damage, you need to watch out for this, as Vergis and Warden can and will place these buffs on themselves, and in the latter case, the whole team, so be mindful of this when attacking enemies with Reflect Damage buffs on – on Wave 2 the smartest option would be to instantly kill the Warden, then you only have to worry about damage reflecting from Vergis.
Wave 3 will be fairly easy, there are 3 ‘Damage’ enemies (Delver, Cagebreaker and Jinglehunter) which you will want to prioritise first, leaving you with 2x Vergis, which will pose no threat, and allow you to slowly whittle them down!
MVP’s for this Strategy
Deacon Armstrong: With Deacon being a free champion for new players via a promo-code, he simply has to be included in the MVPs list, as he is so incredibly strong, not only with his Turn Meter control, but also bringing a Decrease DEF debuff will significantly amplify your damage capabilities in this stage.
Ghrush the Mangler: Ghrush is rewarded to all players as a daily login gift, and his supporting abilities will shine in a stage like this, with AOE Decrease ATK debuffs, and very strong healing, he will help you keep topped up throughout the entire fight!
Stag Knight: Stag Knight is a debuff king, he brings everything you could ask for, AOE – So you can rest easy knowing that the enemies are going to be kept under Decrease DEF, and Decrease ATK during this encounter!
