So I reached a wall, realm level 23 Deathwalker.
And I start questioning myself, maybe I chose the wrong mage. (Life)
I even have level 30s at this time.
Like wth, I can’t even damage this guy (for certain reasons)
So I thought maybe I should just see what breeding does.
And so I spent all my resource points and bred myself a +22 Phase warrior, which had in my opinion a really crappy trait (mitigates 95% damage of all non-attack, magic sources).
Then I found this spell gem called sudden death, which kills a target and deals 20% of max hp of the target to enemies and it only costs 30%hp to use, I’m like whoa, maybe if I use this with my sword which has Midnight feast on it, I would be OP as heck, insta kill + free turn.
At this point I didn’t even have a death monster which could use the ability, so I summoned a Pit worm.
And I go into battle hoping for the best, but alas, Sudden Death is a spell I can only cast on an ally… therefore I can’t use Midnight Feast with it. Buh Bow
But then I also had this pair of gloves which has the trait Necronomicon on it, which allows 2 more casts of a death spell after you cast it, and I also have this spell Dark Ritual.
My dark ritual spell, it kills an ally, and gives 50% of atk, int and def to the caster.
It costs 27%hp to use… and it also casts on another target.
I cast it and it kills 2 of my allies.
And I get stat buffs from both of the aliies I killed… 3 TIMES because Necronomicon casts the spell an additional 2 times on the same target(s).
And now my Pit worm is insanely buffed and deals passively like 80-100 damage with Live to Labor at the start of every enemy’s turn.
And Live to Labor lets me attack Deathwalker… so I’m like I gotta try this out.
So I go to realm level 23 to fight Deathwalker with my level 11 pit worm, my level 12 (+22) Phase Warrior and 2 other randoms that do nothing.
And I get owned… because my Pit Worm gets killed because he’s too slow and on the bottom of the Action Queue.
So I put a lot of Speed Enchantments on his artifact so he can act first.
Then I think to myself, is it possible that since my Dark Ritual can hit a second target, my Pit Worm could kill itself with it’s own ability?
The answer is YES, I find out in the next 5 fights that my Pit Worm kills itself because the second target came up as itself. But I still relented on taking down Deathwalker.
Finally, my Pit Worm didn’t kill itself and buffed itself through the roof with Dark Ritual + Necronomicon, but for some reason my Live to Labor damage was only doing like 2-3 damage, I’m like wth. Although my Pit worm was essentially invulnerable throughout the whole fight due to how much defense it buffed itself with.
So I start picking off all the add ons and start killing them 1 by 1 with normal attack, but I’m thinking to myself, after the add ons are dead this is going to take a hell of a long time to kill Deathwalker if Live to Labor is only doing 2-3 damage.
And then I kill this one monster on his team… and Live to Labor is now doing like 70-80 Damage… guess what it was.
Yeah there was a Phase Warrior on the opponents team, with the trait that I thought was terrible. It was mitigating 95% of the damage that my Live to Labor does
I eventually kill Deathwalker, with a team around level 12 at most :D, my team got to level 20 after that fight!
