Nefarious Tower Solo- Highlights

Nefarious Tower Solo- Highlights

Sep 29, 2014

Last night I decided to challenge myself and solo the Nefarious Tower. 4 hours and 17 dead companions later I succeeded. Below I have video from the most difficult floors.           The Fire Floor (4th floor) For this fight, the fires presented a challenge. If I took too long I would end up getting burnt to a crisp. As a result, I decided to use retreat doubloons. This way I could lay down bombs while simultaneously healing myself. A few marks of aquila were able to seal the deal.   The Nefarious Five This fight was challenging for obvious reasons. I died 3 times before I was able to successfully do it. I stocked up on high level summon doubloons and equip several pieces of hide gear. Bringing Keisuke allowed me to completely disappear from the first turn. I placed down bombs and traps and simultaneously summoned minions to distract the Nefarious Five. It was a close match, but I managed to come out on top.   Terror-cotta Warriors (9th floor) This floor is often underestimated, but it is the second most challenging after the Nefarious Five in my opinion. I started off using Ratbeard and Tempest of Torpedoes to slow the enemy’s charge. After the initial few turns, I resorted to the same strategy as with the Nefarious Five.   Moo Manchu By this point, most of my top companions had been defeated, but I had made sure to save at least a few for the last fight. Wagyu and Chantal were able to hold off the enemy long enough for me to hide and summon an ample number of minions. I was able to slowly wear down their health and eventually finish the fight.              ...
