Delves: Strategies, tactics and tips

has anyone cleared the new delve with pure faction?

3x T7 with hoard 200 + 50% - failure;
Additional T7 lead to success (with a team of four Judges).
Tomorrow I’ll try potionless, but it feels like certain pain in certain bodily region waiting to strike.

Skull reduction - none. Stat gain - none. Backup summon - none. Board control - errm…I’d also settle on a verdict of - none (too unpredictable and unreliable to be considered otherwise).


Done it with 3 × Judge of the Dead and Charonas. Hoard level 133 with Maugrim Woods at 14. Bought tier 7 around 8 times. I failed 5 or 6 times before I done it you really just need to pray to avoid skulls.


First go with potions, 155 Hoard, (actually that’s wrong, I had a go with 111 hoard first) 5 x 7 (as the first room I could try faction was Bulettes and Goblins, so did another with normal team).
3 Judges and a Lemure, but still had to beat the Goblins.

As for trying potionless, I think we are going to need 200+ hoard and no exploders, lame, brittle troops designed to be skybashed…Restricts your choices, anything that explodes or changes the board = a win for the designers (note how they are all veering towards this).

Oh and those new doomskulls = potionless PF needs to be done before they arrive… imho ofc :slight_smile:


I’d agree with you. With those new doomskullls, the days of clearing moat, if not all, PF runs with hoard 100 are going to be pretty much effectively over.

If the increased damage isn’t enough, the mana fills off the larger explosions for the AI side will be the nails in the coffin on those runs.

Hell Gate was a painful delve.

10 purchases of Tier 7, hoard 111, 50% faction bonus. Judge, Fury, Judge, Charonas. 3x nysha medals.

I don’t see many teams with Fury, but I prefer her over a third Judge. Gaining mana is slow, so I didn’t find having a third one helpful. If I couldn’t match for Judge or cast him, Id fill or cast Fury and hopefully death mark works. Also match all skulls. If souls are maxed, don’t bother casting Charonas unless there is no other move, his explosion doesn’t help much and can backfire with skulls.

Legendary room was brutal. If it’s Glaycion, focus Fury on him and take him down asap. Submerge room… may as well restart.


6x Potions of Power, Hoard 180, 50% Faction bonus.

I used 3x Nysha and a full team of Judges. Took me many tries, but eventually got it. Judges are great for the damage, I feel like the other troops are risky, but can of course help if the RNG gods seem it appropriate.

Glad to have this one done with potions.

Tried different setups:
1x charonas 3x judge
1x chaornas 1x fury 2x judge

wasn’t able to brake it in 5 tries on 6xT7/7xT7

Ended up beating it with:
2x fury 2x judge

As for hoard → i always push my hoard to quality 10 and it pushes hoard level above 100. This time ended up with hoard 109. But, also used some deeds to make maugrim woods lvl 15, before going for it.

also 2x Nysha+ 1x Anu for boss room? (not sure)
