Infested Ruins: one of the best maps in the game to farm armor. Everybody should switch to Summoners once everything has been fully upgraded, to maximize armor drops. Start on Wave 19/20 if possible. The green arrows represent Wasp and Djinn flight paths; yellow is for Goblin Copters. The presents are Eternia Crystals, not part of the build.

With this build, you can AFK through most of the waves which can last up to 8-9 minutes each, depending on enemy counts and the lifespan of your auras. Remember to repair them after each wave. I'm using four (4) Deadly Strikers instead of three (3) to kill Harbingers. Otherwise, they have a good chance to venom-tase and kill your boost summoners. I've never experienced any poisonious fatalities with this build. All three Buff Beams are 4 DU long.

Hint 1: Semi-circle wall of archer minions with no gaps for Ogres to fit through. Move mages up against/inside the crystal (through Overlord Mode). The minions can be a little closer to the central crystal. All of the non-copter Ogres on this map are minis whose clubs don't reach as far as full-sized Ogres.

Hint 2: You need to stack the 7 Lightning Towers and 4 Deadly Strikers. Bring ideally three boost Summoners with Apprentice and Huntress Guardians to power-up these towers.

Hint 3: The Darkness Trap gives LTs an easier time to aggro the mini ogres that'll spawn over it. Gas Traps stuns Sharken shivers from the lower northwest spawnpoint.


Misc. Notes

  • Provided that nobody stands too close to the east crystal in height, no ground enemies will attempt to attack it.
  • Skeletons can get stuck on the southern cliffs, unable to pathfind back into the ruins with hero intervention.
  • Open the chests after each wave while everyone is a Summoner. They have an increased chance to contain ultimate-quality armor.
  • Guardian pets won't be necessary by the time your builders' stats are super-high. However, the support pets are still recommended to speed up waves.
