[GUIDE] Dungeon Defender Basics And Strategy

Recommended Posts

Ive had a lot of people asking me since I started making videos about basic information. "How do i spec my character?" "How do I spec my pet and what kind to use?" Things like that.

So I finally broke down and decided to try and answer them all.

Hopefully these guides on the basics will help some and help to answer some of the most asked questions.

Could you add a version number to some of the guides?

Nothing is worse than following old mechanics that doesn't work any more (example: run speed was changed a few updates ago; an ancient guide might let people add more than 100 speed to their chars)

Yea I am aware of that didnt know how or if you have ever adjusted it for Survival?


I dont bother with survival on this map, misty is the fastest/best map at the moment for survival. And there are a lot of builds already posted for spires on survival, I was just showing a much easier way to afk it for resets

Have you thought about posting the setups with cubicleninja as well? It would help a lot to have those setups on a single, easy-to-read page.


Not a fan of the site as it needs a zoom feature to see rotation better. Some maps its ok and walls and such but its hard to notice tower rotation, harpoons mainly. But I will look into it

To zoom in on the map at CubicleNinja, just hold down the CTRL key and scroll with your mouse wheel - I know it's not optimal, but atleast you can zoom in.

You're welcome :)

btw, in your spires video - why not use Bouncers instead of Slice N Dice, afaik Bouncers do more dps, and you can build 2 of them.

I havent tried recently but i know i had issues way back with ogres standing outside of bouncer range and smashing them. Figured the slicendice would be better overall, mainly with more people you get ogres on all sides.
