Just beat Wave Attack; won with around 18+ units surviving, which is how much I normally win with anyways.

Definitely much harder now that Keljana does haven't ACC 105, DMG 75, and Special Lock, but definitely possible. You just need to prioritize units Shadow Demon > Slaughter Wheel > Stalker Of Worlds/Cerness The Skull > Void Scarab/Filth Elemental >Lord Of Ashes (those Row 2 bastards!).


Also, someone explain to me why the heck Iona tells Keljana to RIP? Like... what the ********?

Would you like some tips? (I've found this strategy works for me, although I'm sure there are other methods too.)

Split your forces between the two mana well areas next to your home portal, add in reinforcements, and try not to let too many enemy units escape battle. Keep adding reinforcements through the 1st and 2nd waves.

Timing is critical for the 3rd wave. Try to get everyone onto the 2nd portal before the 3rd wave generates (don't wait for Iona's message, it'll be too late), except a couple of attuners, one each per well. You should have enough mana to summon another dragon before the 3rd wave attacks you. It also means that the enemy forces will split up. If you leave it too late you're likely to get pinned and lose because of it.

Next turn, try to move your attuners into your main army and any new reinforcements from your home portal. This should split the 3rd wave up and you should have a numbers advantage for the first 3rd wave battle. After that, you need to jump to one of the mana well areas with enemy forces (don't jump to your home portal though because they'll all jump on you) and after that just mop up the rest of them. smile

Is it just me, or does it seem like if you are doing badly early on in wave mode, Belphy summons less troops in the final wave?

I was doing pretty crappy this one game, then got in a 16 vs. 18 battle after the 3rd wave spawned. I was waiting for a counter attack to finish me off after I barely won that battle, but next thing you know, I got the victory wings and about 1,500 E.

I just played Wave Attack again recently. You may wish to update your stratgey notes, lest you have people scratching their heads over Keljana. I didn't find it that much more difficult without her old special locking ability, although that may be because I was simply bombarded by multiple Cloud Of Curses, thus leaving little AP left for specials.
As Shintouyu stated last week, the key to wave 3 is to have a strict order in which you eliminate the different unit types. I simply cannot sufficiently stress the importance of taking out the Shadow Demons first, you must eliminate all of them on the first round. I will expand on this directive, and suggest using Krylyr The Eye for this task. Whilst his defender is in use, he has a 90% chance to 1 hit KO a Shadow Demon. The smaller the number of units needed to take out a Shadow Demon, the less total damage aura you will suffer. Shintouyu and I both recommend going after the Slaughter Wheels next. Their special has potential for some serious AoE damage. My attacking order is pretty much the same as Shintouyu's, although I would remove the two slashes and take out Stalker Of Worlds before Cerness The Skull and Void Scarab before Filth Elemental. Those Filth Elementals are considerably less effective in offense than they are in defense, so they don't pose much threat. Their special is usually as detrimental to the instigator as it is to the victim. Finally, it's not really worth using Dragoneye Archers to take out Lord Of Ashes early on, you'll end up losing them due to the damage aura. It's generally better to simply have them support the rest of your force in taking out the other units first. As with the Shadow Demons, it's better to hit them with a smaller number of harder hitting units.

They increased the difficulty of protect the princess it seems, now the enemy summons more units than before including more dragons (used to be one or two).

Seems survivor is changing too, I used to win easily almost every game, now I struggle on most games.
Wave attack should be nightmare.

Is that because of, or in spite of the fact that you're not in it? Either way, you need to update your username AND signature.

If I changed my username to "Trap Lover the Dragonlord" (I would say "Dragonlady" if it didn't mean something else entirely), would that action alone grant me the right to be called that by everyone else?
