Viper’s Marsh Guide

The key to this entire adventure is the damage bonus from faction advantages.

This is because at the start you’re given a relic called the “Flag of Courage“. This unique relic buffs your heroes damage by 100% and reduces their damage taken by 25% when they have a factional advantage.

Some of the enemies guarding the crystal treasure chests are actually very strong, so you might have to create a faction specific team for each one.

There’s 4 different crystal treasure chests in this adventure, 3 of them are surrounding a lake in the middle of the map. The 4th one is in the north west and it contains the Dura’s Blade artifact.

Mixed Chief Enemies (North West)

This is the enemy that guards the crystal chest which contains the Dura’s Blade artifact. It’s located North West of the start.

This is actually a pretty easy fight and the easiest out of all the chief enemies on the map. If you just want the artifact it might be a good idea to just go straight for it.

Weak Against: Lightbearers & Wilders.
Strong Against: Lightbearers & Wilders.
Strategy: Don’t use any Lightbearer or Wilder heroes.

Power: 1,057,584

Lightbearer Chief Enemies

Weak Against: Graveborn
Strong Against: Maulers

Power: 1,118,663

Graveborn Chief Enemies

Weak Against: Wilders
Strong Against: Lightbearers

Power: 1,198,122

Maulers Chief Enemies

Weak Against: Lightbearers
Strong Against: Wilders

Power: 1,132,256

Mercenary Encampments

Luckily you do get a bit of help from 4 mercenary encampments on the map.

You can try out 3 of the new heroes added in patch 1.14.01 as well, which is pretty cool.

Idk about the guide, but my hero deck average hero lvl was 180 & only 2 mythic+ (Shemira,die& Fawkess,no use)

For the last line(3 Mauler & 2 Graveborn,but you know how is Shemira right? ),that why me only use 3 Maulers(Brutus,Numisu,Warek) 2 Wilders(Seirus,Tasi),they all just mythic to get Dura Blade after beat up all other treasures tho. 😉

Wait wait wait.
I am on this Peaks of Time now and all enemies are ASCENDED heroes and not Mythic like on screens showed.
Ascended heroes make this a LOT tougher. If it was only Mythic heroes I could have beaten this PoT in few tries, but now, no chance 🙁

My setup is always hendricks and belinda front line, nemora fawkes and lucius backline, just keep resetting with this until you beat each camp without anyone dying

If you guys dont understand this.
You want teams with faction bonus of 3-2, 4-1, or 5.
Fawkes plays a huge part in this too. He will make it 100% easier for your solo carrys

I have a problem because all of the camps are using Ascended heroes not Mythic ones like showed above. Good luck beating Lucius and Belinda without Ascended heroes on your own then and with current drop rates, it’s almost impossible to clear Viper March (might be due to me being on chapter 15-40) and all my heroes being 160 plus Shemira on 200 :/.

I beat the Lucius Belinda combo pretty handily with a 170ish mythic Shemira and the rest at 141. Not 100% certain on what my lineup was but I believe it was Baden (E), Thoran (E+), Nemora (L+), Arden (L+), and the aforementioned Shemira for basically all the damage. Possible my relics were relatively good but they’re all blue so it’s hard to see how they’d be too op. Extra bit of cc from Arden and Nemora (plus heals obviously) was pretty handy vs just 2 heroes.

Is it a bug or intended that you do not get chests from the big encampements?

When you click a camp, sometimes it says “Does not drop relics.” Those don’t drop relics.

“This unique relic buffs your heroes damage by 100% and reduces their damage taken by 25% when they have a factional advantage”

I came here with the hope to learn what “factional advantage” is. Leaving clueless.

I am confused about the description of the relic, saying that “If your team has the factional advantage over the enemy…” Does the relic actually work if I have more heroes with factional advantage? Lets say my team is composed of only Brutus. And the other team has 2 wilders and 3 lightbearers? Does my Brutus get a buff? Or no buff, because I have only 1 hero with factional advantage while the other team has 3?

Dude, it’s just individual. If you have 4 Wilders and 1 Mauler, that 1 Mauler is gonna do extra dmg agaisnt Wilders.

How does one make it this far into the game and not know what a faction advantage is?

Scarslett

Does this mean you have to have the GREATER or at least EQUAL factional advantage over the enemy, or just any faction makeup?

Nevermind, I see its not talking about having the 3/4/5 or 3 and 2 bonus, its talking about the Mauler>Wilder>Graveborn>Lightbearer factional advantage

So about the mixed chief enemies section : the way it is written, you are advised to use Lightbearers and Wilders and in the same time it says to avoid them. I suppose that the right mix would be to use 3 Lightbearers (since they have 3 maulers) and the rest Wilders to counter the Graveborns. This is the idea I reckon for the whole faction advantage issue in the map as well. If they got 3 of a kind you use 3 or full of their counters. Please correct me if I am wrong

Lightbearers and Wilders both give and take majorly amplified damage, so that’s why they recommend avoiding using them.

Wrong, it’s individual buffs. Ratios doesn’t matter here.

Mauler also gives 2x Hero Scroll and 1x Faction Scroll (might have typed the Lightbearer one wrong).

I am clearing it pretty well using L+ Shemira 160, E Tasi 155, M Nemora 161, L Rowan 160, and L+ Arden 155. Just make sure you are using the minor camps to refill your energy before fights.

This. I have a lvl 180 Shem + other heroes at 160 and it’s a struggle to get past the minor camps. I can only clear major camps with 1-2 heroes surviving.

I don’t understand why it’s so fucking hard for the devs to find some kind of a balance between impossible and laughable. Basically right now the faction bump you get at the beginning of the level seems like it doesn’t do anything at all.
