I love the Hunt Event... Something to finally use my maps for.
The Two Bonus - Monsters and Drifting Sands has been a bit of an interesting challenge.
And I love the Rock Spirit.
But... there are not have enough Brown mana makers in the system for a good team for Rock Spirit to shine. And trust me when I say I have been trying all kinds of neato combos within the bonuses and outside the bonus groups
So here's what I have learn with the different teams I have built.
Golem -M/20/F, Rock Worm - M/20/F, Rock Worm - M/20/F, Rock Spirit L/19/F - Great bonuses but no real way to get enough mana to feed the team
Golem -M/20/F, Rock Worm - M/20/F, Acolyte -M/20/F, Rock Spirit L/19/F with Undead Banner -
This is just too Slow to get really moving, especially against anything with Devour, Death Mark, Mind Wipe or Queen Mab and her freezing on 4/5 matches.
Upside - Golem/Rock Spirit do a 1 - 2 punch that really works on just about everyone to knock out their Armour and then their life. I actually managed to go against a team that was higher point value, and third turn take out all 4 troops with Rock Spirit+Brown gems (manage to get a very good lineup)
But the down side of this is even if I can get Rock Worm and Acolyte to produce enough Brown to make Rock Spirit really effective 4-5s matches end up back in the team or worse - no 4 or 5 match and the other team takes most of my lovely brown away - EVEN if they don't need it.
Tried the following variances
Replaced Rock worm with Dark Troll to get purple - can't go against heavy hitters - he has no active attack.
Replaced Rock worm with Rock Troll (double the
Replaced Acolyte with Rock Troll (again even if I could get enough mana on the board - the other team gobbles it up as well)
Tried out Apothecary or The Devoted - no protection - and boy the opposing team would go after her first no matter where I put her in the lineup..
Even tried adding a Guardian and choosing Brown as the second color.... but just so slow.
(I do have the Great Maw but after the first initial cast - it really is rather useless)
So I scratch my head - loosing about 20% or more this round to collect the extra gold.
I am going to try Finley next to see if I can get some more brown and purple mana
