Nerissa is a proud warrior of the water. Armed with her enchanted trident, she defends the seas, the rivers, and the lakes. She is well known across coastal villages, and they often call on her for help. She has slain great sea beasts that would otherwise kill everyone in their path. She has rescued sailors from hurricanes and even warned villages of incoming tsunamis to save lives. Her bravery and brilliance in battle have led to her being called Nerissa the Hurricane.
When the Chaos Legion was released I spent a lot looking to get every Legendary card and maxing all the cheap common cards, but I should have paid more attention to the Epic cards like Nerissa Tridawn because they tend to be the winners. Nerissa Tridawn is my wife’s favorite card, but I only use her when I’m magic-spamming high mana matches. She doesn’t have any special abilities, but she has a strong magic attack and a decent amount of heart life. I would love to MAX her, but I think it would be better to spend money on leveling up more common, rare, or summoner cards. I’ll try to get her to at least level 4 before the prices go up too much. We had a nice long bear market where we could pick up cards for cheap, but it seems like the bear is about to leave the cave and turn into a bull. I would be happy with another year of the bear, but that would be bad for everyone.
My enemy and I both chose Nerissa Tridawn, but I put the whale out front and chose a healer while my enemy went for a more ranged attack strategy. I rarely go into battle without a healer. There are times when you should go full-on attack mode, but I’ve found that the healer is usually the most important card. I love the water healer because she also repairs armor.
I would have lost this battle if it weren’t for a few lucky misses. It seems like I never get lucky when it comes to getting misses, but I was today. I’m going to really miss using my self-healing eye monster once Untamed gets phased out of the Modern ranked battles, but I’m sure something better will come along.
How is your Riftwatchers collection going? I prefer to buy individual cards rather than opening packs, but sometimes you get lucky plus you get more chances for airdrops if you purchase packs from the shop, so I’ve been buying about a pack a week. I would’ve bought more if I could’ve used Paypal instead of only SPS. Now that staked SPS will be needed to get into higher leagues and will help to get more promo cards I’m not willing to spend it. I did get lucky today and opened two Gold Foil cards.
Thanks for reading about my Nerissa Tridawn -vs- Nerissa Tridawn battle today. She’s a great card even at level one.
