  1. I don't want to rehash the already discussed. If there's a thread please direct me and my pardons. I started tweaking a few dps characters and as DD is very scenario based its fun to have options. I have noted the emphasis of boost monks with recent DLCs. My DPS monk is now largely relegated to standing by idling boosting. I'm looking through my gear and wondering if my dps/boost monk gear would be better suited on another character (not the point which character) but currently my monk is at 3600 in hero boost and 2600 in tower boost. I believe if focused, like my barbarian is for pure
  2. use the bridge overhead. the only thing that spawns up there are spiders. as long as you don't have auras touching the top of the bridge, you should be golden. just aggro one a drag to another. it's amazingly tedious but works.
  3. Winning CD on hard core with a jester. Does this award a random legendary costume or? Thanks.

  5. I use these forums from my phone without using it. I don't see why I should pay for something when I can get away without it. To each their own I guess. For me the interface is much easier to work with and use then the web forums. The HD version of Tapatalk is also quite good.
  6. Well, Akatiti - I was able to hand the boss his first loss at my hands last night. I just ran circles around him letting my boosted seahorse do the work. I'm guessing my failed strategy was taking too many hits straight on. Thanks for the tips. Now for Winter Wonderland.
  7. I must be missing the obvious with Akatiti being insta-kill. I have a 20k seahorse and it was far from it. I one shotted the bosses on Insane and got handed the 3 times I've fought him on NM. I'll go with kiting and seahorses to see how that fairs. Thanks.
  8. Greetings. I haven't played since just after Tavern Defense (also pre-utimate+ items). Friends picked up the humble bundle and here - I'm back. Ultimate Defender - reasonably geared and can build both Akatiti and Winter Wonderland solo and dragging a couple under geared friends along. However I cannot seem to put a dent in either Akatiti nor Winter Wonderlands 8 bosses on NM. Resists in nightmare for monk, barb, jester are at or very near 90%. Barb dps - 50m (140m hawk), monk - 40m, jester - 80m. I've watched several videos on both maps, almost all have better stats and dps than I. Has
  9. many a bearded defender. nice touch Trendy.
  10. I always max tower atk and tower rate, the remaining goes to hero hp or casting speed. Range for a squire doesn't seem to matter much at all, less so on a buff beam.
  11. Nice work! My favorite part is how easy you make it look.
  12. im not saying you should not use 4, im just saying with 2 people its a piece of cake :3 ( aka if u want all the costumes i would suggest using ur team to get pass the dragon, demon and mech then 2 of u leave then kill old one once u do this one of u can easy kill old one wile one of you use like a hunter witch tbh does like no dps so u wont be much help, and keep going to all ur team has the costumes, u also get a TON more weps this way, reducing the chance to fail coz he only has like 73mil hp :P, XD) Not sure I follow, nor do I want to hijack the thread, but could you explain that a bit
  13. A friend of gave me this item ( http://gyazo.com/bf3d604a31d6b35ed85f7e195d9086fe ) and i think it's hacked.. I don't want to use a hacked item and get banned... but i don't want to sell it if it's legit... Please help You should use http://forums.trendyent.com/showthread.php?74508-Item-Check-Thread but yes, it's hacked.
  14. Agreed, solo is crazy. However having done it now - also one of the most rewarding getting through it I've had in a game in a long while.
  15. I don't really get the point of it though - check to see how well we've hot keyed our towers and can mash them? On teams, you also can fail if one of your builders lags. Why not just give us 60 on the boss timer? Well for one, that stage would be 100x easier if you had twice the time. Another tip is to summon an ogre and set him to hold offensive. :)
  16. Mischief guide worked mostly for me. My key was adding a few harpoons to distract the ogres to give me more time to run from dragon back to them. As for time to build, it's tight but you should be able to build what he recommends with practice. Another thing which worked was I botted a second character - monk with a good seahorse. Gave him full mana and a few seconds after the start I had him boost and depressed the ranged fire trigger, that bought me even more time --- not sure if you count that as solo but helped a ton. After boss gauntlet drop the afk bot and kick butt. It's a serio
  17. Success! Although to win I had to afk my monk and boost while harpoons distracted ogres. Just a tip for those trying and not successful managing ogres is to use a boosting monk paired with harpoons which will give you and extra few seconds to run back for ogres. Made all the difference for me. I wasn't able to do it without the boosting monk but my squires tower hp was only 1.5k and poons went down quickly without him.
  18. In other news, I added an experimental build for the legendary mage section. Testing would be helpful, as I've only really done one run-through with it (though it worked great on that). Spiders! Can't wait to give it a try.
  19. 5 hiccups tonight. FIVE. Nothing else using my ISP.
  20. Several times now within the past couple of days, I have randomly lost connection and booted back to the server list. Definitely not Steam this time. Has anyone else experienced unusually frequent disconnects recently, or just my bad luck to be in the middle of end-wave Survival? Yes, for me it comes in waves. Last night no disconnects, over the weekend a lot. My theory was my ISP and communication with Trendy. I was suspecting if Trendy perceives a certain amount of latency over a given period it drops you. In most cases over the weekend I could attribute this to activities similar.
  21. The ogre-mage combo is a great idea, but I've found it better to consolidate choke points rather then have all those individual ogre triangles. The regular ogres always come up the ramps, so as long as those ogres path your defenses, that's all you need. The copter ogres can wander all about until you melt them with your hero. Northeast also doesn't seem to get any regular ogres (I'm not 100% sure, but it sure seems that way). I'd love to see an alternative build that works. The build in this thread is the only one I've gotten to work and it's a lot of work for me.
