Today I’m going to show you the complete process of this Trial of the Ancestors and how I won the tournament. Trial of the Ancestors can be challenging, but it’s very fun and rewarding once you know the correct way to defeat your opponents.
With an excellent strategy, you can win every game and maximize your POE Currency earnings. But it’s important to note that it’s important to strike a balance between the effort you put in and the benefits you get. Without further ado, let’s get started.
As for my strategy, I always prioritize attackers and flankers, especially flankers. When the game started and I didn’t have many warriors, my role was as a midfielder and defender. Therefore, getting good flankers and attackers is crucial because I have to rely on them to do the job for me.
Before I officially get down to running, I want to show you the warriors I use in each position. In the first round, I always prioritize getting a good flanker for the next round.
These are good flankers. And Sunset Sage is the best flanker because she is the only ranged flanker. But if you don’t have a better choice, we can also use Tuatara as a flanker. And the green ones are cheap and easiest to buy since they are always available.
So, in the first round, I always prioritize Favors of these four tribes: Valako, Tawhoa, Rongokurai, and Ramako. Among them, Tawhoa is the lowest priority among the four tribes, and I will tell you why in a moment.
Best Attackers & Defenders
Now, if you look at the tribes, you’ll see that Rongokurai and Valako also provide excellent attackers and defenders. But Tawhoa doesn’t offer anything other than a flanker, and their flanker isn’t even the best. Warriors with both offensive and defensive capabilities include:
- Goliath of Night from Rongokurai tribe
- Caldera Ravager from a Ngamahu tribe
- Tidecaller from Arohongui tribe
Rongokurai, Valako, Ramako, Ngamahu and Arohongui are the most useful tribes. Just mix and match between these tribes and you will win the tournament.
In the first round, our opponent was Kiloava. If you want to get Exalted Orb, you need to examine the enemy warriors and choose which direction you want to focus on.
I would choose the bottom area because I feel it would be easier for my flanker to reach the enemy totems. So, I would put Tuatara and Fieldmaster here. Fieldmaster is an excellent flanker. Because he can build walls while channeling the totem, to stop enemies from interrupting him.
As for Warcaller, he is an excellent attacker who can provide Onslaught buffs to teammates. I would put him in an attacking position near the center. We usually choose 4 attackers and 2 flankers, or 3 attackers and 3 flankers.
When the game starts, I will quickly place the totem here to spawn Aggro to attract the opponent’s attackers. I don’t care if I can kill them. The goal is to waste their time to create opportunities for my attackers and flankers to penetrate deep into the enemy base.
Mini maps are essential during matches, as you need to know if your attackers and flankers are doing their jobs well. As you can see, the red one is the enemy’s totem, and if there is a blue light, it means the totem is being guided by a teammate.
Now, you need to observe, and if the blue light does not last for a long time, you need to provide aid to your attacker and flanker. Here, both our attacker and flanker did a great job, and most of the enemy’s totems were down.
We have some Favors now, so we want to get more warriors. I try to get as many warriors as possible early on before leveling them up, unless the warrior is pretty useless. I only kept one as a flanker and sold the rest to accumulate more Chaos Orbs.
In the second round, I want to get more flankers or attackers. Of course, the best-case scenario is that both parties benefit.
This time I chose Utula as my opponent because it has significant benefits. But Frenzymonger is very dangerous because he deals with a lot of damage. So this time, to avoid him, I’ll also prioritize the bottom area.
Even though Fieldmaster is a great flanker, I only use a maximum of 2 flankers per game. This is because too many Fieldmasters can even impede your movement.
Also, never stay in the same area during a match, always move around to avoid getting hit. I try not to get killed because I’m usually the chief defender on the team. My priority is to protect our totems.
Don’t forget to focus on your own totems. If you see an “X,” it means your totem is being channeled. You just put the totem there to stop the enemy. And Thunderbird is an excellent flanker. It can teleport instantly and reach enemy totems.
By the way, here you will find Navali, who sells some of the POE items that will be very useful for your warriors.
In the third round, there are no suitable rewards. I can once again compete with my opponents with the greatest Favors. This time, I’m going to focus on the bottom part again.
Now that we have more fighters, I will fill all the attackers and flanker positions. But Caldera Ravager is extremely dangerous, so be sure to stay away from him.
In the fourth round, I want to focus on some good Favors. Valako, Ramako and Ngamahu are all great. They have a Lunar Turtle there. It’s slow, but its Cold Breath can kill in one hit. So I adjusted Tidecaller’s position, hoping to repel Lunar Turtle and prevent it from approaching our base.
Now that I have more warriors, I fill all the defender slots. As you can see from the mini-map, the enemy totems in the bottom area are being guided, so our strategy of focusing on a specific area is effective.
It helps our flanker sneak into enemy bases more easily and destroy their totems. And destroying their totems is the fastest way to widen the damage gap between you and your enemy. Once their totem is destroyed, fewer warriors can regenerate. It was impossible for us to lose the game at this point.
After we won the tournament, this Ramako tribe gave the best reward, Tattoo of The Ramako Makanga. It allows the skill to fire additional projectiles, so try not to eliminate them too early.
In addition, Hinekora and Arohongui tribes have wonderful rewards. Of course, you can also intentionally abandon the game to regain better rewards. For example, you’re facing Ahuana as the last opponent, but the rewards are terrible. If you haven’t lost a game yet in this tournament, you can lose to Ahuana on purpose. This way you can take on Ahuana again and hopefully get better rewards this time.
The above is completing the challenge of my Trial of the Ancestors tournament. Dear Exiles, how is your Trial of the Ancestors going? If you have an alternative strategy that works for you, don’t forget to let us know. Looking forward to seeing you in the game!
