    Thank you. But still not good. Hard levels.

      Nice. Do you have 5 gear slot? Which team did you choose without runes?

        I've been working on cracking Meta II no runes. So far, I can get the first 11 nodes with 5 x different teams.

        Here are the 5 teams I need, and which node to use them on.

        Team 1
        3x Nathaniel Howe
        1x Zither
        1x Sundermount Varterral

        Gear config is the standard for this combo - mine are not full fort, but all heroes run 5 gears slots. NH gear =
        Skin that Stalks, Fox's Jerkin, Joining Chalice, Griffonrider leathers, and Hauberk of the Lady.

        Team 2
        3x Lyrium Fenris
        1x Fen'Harel
        1x Sundermount Varterral.

        All need Arlathan Crystal, and the SV and FH need Orb of Fen'Harel. The Lyrium Fenris should be rocking Kirkwall shield and the optimal damage block / resist (anti-NH) config.

        In my config, one of the Lyrium Fenris does not have prestige, yet, but all other heroes do, and are at the optimal config

        The Lyrium Fenris config I use is for the optimal team to ruin NH + Zither squads.

        Team 3
        4x Asha'bellanar
        1x Sundermount Varterral

        This team's curse and retaliation combo, as well is the key to the node with 4x Lyrium Fenris. None of the Ashas are prestige, the SV is the same as the other teams. All Ashas have the Flemeth Grimoire, and I have equipped them as I have gear with Mythal's Judgement, Grand Enchanter's Staff, Yavanalis, and/or the Great Dragon Staff. On one Asha I've placed an Arlathan crystal, and another Asha has an Orb of Fen'Harel instead. Once I have more Crystal's, I'll switch them all out to have Arlathan Crystal and Orb of Fen'Harel - and I'll update with the outcomes once that's completed.

        Team 4
        2x Fire Tempest Sera (in Back row) ,
        1x Zither
        1x Josephine
        1x Dragon Morrigan

        I've built these for other INQ, squads, except Zither, who is geared for Team 1.

        Team 5

        Dragon of the Elder One
        1x Calpernia (behind TEO)
        1x Crassis (behind Duke)
        1x TEO
        1x Duke Antoyne

        These are the configuration from Heal and Harm for Venatori to beat TRA.

        Here's how far I've gotten with no runes (sorry, I don't remember the node number), but I do remember the team I face off against.

        Default team is Team 1 for all nodes, unless I specify otherwise below.

        Nodes 1-3: Team 1
        Win rate: 99%

        Node 4 with Scout Harding, Skywatcher, and Hakkon Winters breath, use Team 2.
        Win rate: 100%

        Node 5 with the X formation Dace can use teams 1,2, or 4. I think team 4 may have a slight better win rate than the other two at the moment for me.
        Win rate: 90%

        Node 6 (I think) With the 3x King Endrin and 1 Piotin combination, use Team 4. The power curse is what does them in, because Piotin can't ever get his nuke off. The Endrin will usually stun DM, Josie, and Zither, which is fine - Fire TS is still powering up. However if Endrin manages to stun the 2 Fire Tempest Sera, you'll wind up losing that fight. There might be a better 100% team, but I haven't found it yet.
        Win rate: 100%

        Node 7 (2x Cullen + Josie) use team 1. If both Cullen's double hit, then you lose, but the odds are against this. I think there is a better team, but I haven't found it, I get Hard or Medium with other teams, or lose on "Easy" anyway.
        Win rate: 90%

        Node 8: Team 1
        Win rate: 100%

        For Node 9, use team 5. It's the only one I've gotten Easy with so far against Ariane and FH X formation. FH kills most of his team with his first nuke and the retaliation comes back on them. Crassis finished them off if anyone is left, but usually, back row FH kills his entire squad with the retaliation. Best success is when both FH's hit before Crassis.
        Win rate: 80%

        Node 10: 4x Lyrium Fenris node use Team 3. The Double curse from Asha every round, as well as power drain, keeps the Fenris at bay until Asha charges up. This seems to be a 100% win rate team, so far - have not lost with it on this node, yet.
        Win rate: 100%

        Node 11: Team 1 destroys Crow Zevran. If the developers had put jerkin on here, I don't know if I would have made it past this node yet. But without it, the 3x NH torch them before they ever get a chance to move - I have so far had 100% with against them.

        Now that I've locked down the first 11 nodes, I'll save up some gems and start working on the last half. I'm hoping the Venatori team will also be effective against the GEF + FH combo team later, but I haven't gotten there, yet.

          Suggested team for the last 4 nodes: 2 Alistair, Maric, Duke Wycome, Great Dragon. Properly geared, they beat the last nodes unruned.
          Ally Code: 362-689-939

            Lord of Avernus noted to me in DM that this team can no rune Node 9

            Lc: HS 3x Leliana 1x LSC

            I haven't tried it yet, as I need more energy, but I'll try it tomorrow when I've recharged up to 200 and report back on results, and if there's any gear I notice I'm missing to make it work.

            I couldn't get that team to work, but I didn't have the gear available currently to outfit it with what Lord of Avernus recommended. I'll do another post with my specific loadout so people can compare for your own teams, including heroes I have missing items, but which still works.

              Okay, found a team in the demon event that seems to 100% nuke the Advisor node

              LC Dragon Hakkon
              FR Scout Harding and Zither
              BR Sky watcher and Revenant Gurd

              They have enough power gain and slow that the advisers never get a chance.

                Updated team for Advisor node 6, seems to have a much better win rate than my previous recommendation - runeless

                LC - Dragon Hakkon
                FR - Scout Harding
                FR - Zither
                BR - Sky Watcher
                BR - Revenant Gurd

                Kit is:

                Hauberk of the Lady on Sky Watcher and Zither
                Anything that increases health and power on damage.

                This team also performs well against most Ferelden Nobility squads, except its a toss-up with Ferelden banner - if it runs before Zither/Sky Watcher and prices cursed power, then you're down. If Zither and Sky watcher slow it down, then you should win as long as Hakkon and Revenant Gurd hit first.

As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.

                What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                What happens if I break the rules?
                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                Posting Suggestions
                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                EA TOS English
                EA TOS French
                EA TOS German
                EA TOS Russian
                EA TOS Spanish

                By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
