Serious Progression Problems - Game over?


Recommended Posts

Following the guides and suggestions on the forums...I seem to be stuck also and not getting as high as I should be able to with the stats I have. I have tried running 3 maps:

Wall App: 1350/xxx/xxx/xxx
Tower App: 700/1400/700/1000
Monk Aura: 700/xxx/700/xxx

Misty NM HC - I die on wave 10 http://html5.cubicleninja.com/cubicleninja/html5/dd/index.htm?layout=13510
Spires NM HC - I die on wave 10 http://html5.cubicleninja.com/dd/index.htm?layout=8799

Since I keep hitting wave 10 and dying on those two stages...decided to downgrade in level AND switch mainly to Squire, which I heard is preferable to Apps now.

Squire Tower: 800/1400/700/800
App Tower: 700/1050/700/700

Alch Labs NM HC MM - I die on wave 11 http://html5.cubicleninja.com/dd/index.htm?layout=23264

After building, I switch to a huntress with hero stats around 1000/1100. I use genie the first couple rounds, 3star everything, then switch to app guardian (for Misty and ES) and hunt guardian for alch labs. What am I doing wrong? It seems that OP with tower stats 600/900/xxx/xxx can make it to Alch Labs 18-19 but I keep dying on 11.

I agree Tastic, once you play HC you don't go back. It's also more exciting.

The problem for me was that I didn't want to log out my well made hybrid builder and lose the online bonus, so I wanted to be able to upgrade those high stats the same way I had all along. The game requires a bit of an attitude shift. I see now that I should be able to raise my important stats high enough to log off the builder and go with a program more like you outlined. Thanks again for that.


Squire Tower: 800/1400/700/800.


Apprentices were seriously nerfed awhile ago. My builder/hybrid Countess' stats are not as high as yours and I run Misty NM HC to the queen with her, then die. I hope by the time a friend and I get 2 chars with stats slightly higher than those, we can take her.
I don't have the build I use handy, but check for squire Misty NM builds. Use a genie for low waves and an apprentice guardian for later ones, loot all the gear on the last wave til the Queen comes. Chest loot is NOT better than monster loot. I just learned that. :) Good luck!

I assume you mean survival?

Wave 10/11/12 in survival are gearcheck waves. You need a ton of guns doing cross lane DPS. Just looking at your mage build, your towers are only hitting one lane. Which means they are useless when there is no mobs in that lane. So I'm going to assume your probably doing something similar with your squire.

It's all in the build.

Looking at your squire Alchemy labs build it's pretty bad as well. Your not taking advantage of cross lane DPS. Not to mention as a squire you should be using bumper blockades to kill spiders, not magic missiles.

Try this for misty:

Should be fine for newb survival solo play. It's going to be slow because of all the lane clogs. Make sure the southern harpoons on the ledge by the chest can hit the south lane and the east lane, and the middle harpoons can hit the east lane and the north lane. You can replace the bowling with more harpoons for cross lane DPS if your still having issues. Also if your having ogre issues on the West lane, you can put the wyvern harpoon on the wall and have it cover wyverns and ogres. With the lane clogged it's doubtful any mobs will make it to hat lane before the wyverns are finished. And after you 3star everything by wave 9, you need to run an apprentice or huntress guardian for waves 10/11/12. Apprentice is better for solo play because you can buff the bumper blockades during the spider rush.

Your problem is right here. You need to leave the builder out or split screen. You should not be worrying about DPSing anything down yourself and should only be worrying about repairing things. A countess builder is the best IMO because she moves quickly and has a decent amount of health even with tower gear.
