Tactic Edit

The Barbarous Seven Edit

It is necessary to create a big army in order for the boss to be defeated under some turns, and cannot take advantage of his abilities then. This works if we use the stacks who can be collected on the map mainly.

A Dream Which Was Not All A Dream Edit

Although there is a limited army, serious losses will not be so.

Useful abilities:

  • Arachne in Level 4; Vampiric Embrace; Regeneration, Mass (to heals creatures)
  • Evasive Maneuvers; Stand Your Ground, Mass; Stone Skin, Mass (to reduces damage)
  • Weakness (reduce the boss' damage by half)
  • Reinforcements (increase number of target stack)
