:) Had 5 easy stomps while tinkering with this build a bit, turns out darkness just wasn't cutting it. I dare say I enjoy this map now.

How I Roll

Tower Builders - 3.5k - 5k In "main tower stat" (ie. 3.5k - 5k Tower HP on Waller) Barbarian's stats reflect Hero DMG and Tower Range.

Dual Boost Monk - 3.5k Tower 4k Hero. 80%+ resist

Initiate Boost Monk - 4.2k Tower 2.7k Hero 80%+ resist

Beam EV - Boss killer using Prop cat. 85%+ resist 3k HP 3.5k DMG 3k Proton Beam

DPS Summoner - Kreygasm 80%+ resist 2k+ HP 2.5k+ DMG (varying numbers based heavily on individually geared summoners.) HP and resist matter in terms of Adept's Purity Bomb. Not sure survival threshold numbers but past that DMG, having said that if you're not currently at survival threshold I'd HIGHLY suggest shooting for that before the damage. Will test and report back. This assumes it's survivable on a summoner.

Wave 1 build:

Auras -> Buff Beam -> All 5 Lightning Towers

Dual boost monk (can add initiate to speed up the waves/expand auras into the buff beam.)

Wave 2 build:

Walls/Reflectors -> Totem -> Summons

Dual boost monk main w/ Double DPS Summoners and EV.

Boss Wave:

EV Beam main w/ Double DPS Summoners and Dual Boost.


If you can manage to expand the auras into a smaller buff beam you can add a reflector, assuming there's the need or want for one.


Hint 5: Forge and Chests

Hint 3: Solid platform you can use to gather mana faster, assuming you can't fly.

Enjoy IMO EZ Voids, Kill Adept Harbingers kind of suck, best to stay closer to the centre area to avoid shocking.

Thanks, was finally able to do this map on Ascension. Used only a Tower/Hero boost monk and an EV for first try. Was always wiping on mana bombs before. I just standed at the totem and DPS toward the wall and killed the Adept fast enough without having to run around for it.
