Hey all, As I’m sure a lot of you have been in the same situation as me, just finished all the honored achievements, and hence all the achievements in Tyrant and now there’s a whole heap of new material, 24 more missions, more rewards for raids, more cards and more importantly for this topic MORE ACHIEVEMENTS!
As of yet, I am saving WB to see what cards i actually want for when the dust has settled a bit from this expansion but I have been attempting to finish the achievements which are still available to me, namely; Overkill, EXTREME Overkill, True Valor, SMASH!, Common Theme and Common Attacker.
I have had success with Common Attacker with a pretty basic deck ( and I had trouble with it registering so I used 10 common cards). This one was easy and I’m sure no guide is neccessary but just find an empty deck in arena and hit it with 9 medics(replace with 0 damage cards) and finish with a marksman, or any other equally low damage, high wait card eg. Trap setter ( I used this so I could stick it on auto without risk of killing the commander before i got my cards out)
For SMASH! I suppose I may have been slightly lucky, but I played it on mission 67, I figured I might as well try to advance in these new missions as well as get these achievements with a deck of:
5x Rally Flag
2x Artemis Tank
I got the 10 damage required in this 3 turns in a row. So this deck shouldn’t have too much problems
As of yet, the last of the above listed achievements that I have finished is Common Theme; So as to not take any risks of it not registering, and still playing mission 67, I used a deck similar to this one, finding along my way that a hybrid of Sawblades and Irradiated Infantry would wipe out the opponent before you get a chance to play all 10 of them, Here’s my sort of mismatched deck:
3x Irradiated Infantry
I’m not completely sure that the deck above is the exact deck I used, I suggest if it wins too quickly swapping some II for Trap Setters.
EDIT: Common Theme
This may not work first time, but you will win most of the time and it will work eventually. Plus it’s a nice gold/energy ratio anyway so, winning and not getting the achievement a few times is fine.
10x Irradiated Infantry
Beat mission 67, getting you the Crippler, then create a deck of Malort; Crippler, 2x Asylums
Create a second deck of ideally 10x Medics, or almost anything with 0 attack and then play yourself in the arena for a very easy achievement.
Using the Howitzer from the True Valor achievement, or another alternative fight a deck with as many banshees as possible and also medics, with the enemy commander as Skullkeeper for the high health.
Mission 29 with Atlas; 2x Valkyrie, Aegis and Medic. Play Valkyries first.
Although my method for this is far from perfect, I will post masterluke’s solution here:
Mission 29 – Atlas; Rifter, Aegis, 3x Medic
Alternatively Diadem also has a useful solution:
“Play mission 52
Deck: Atlas with Predator, Tiamat, Omega, Arc Trooper. Play in that order if you can. Very easy. Commander has weaken all 1 so you won’t kill him before all his creatures and you have plenty of strike to kill all.”
Overkill achievements are fixed as of now So here is EXTREME Overkill
Easiest and cheapest way to get this is:
Creature Combo 4:
4x Rally Flag
Play 1 or 2 rally flags first, depending on which cards the cpu plays, then its a walk to extreme overkill. So far at least 2 others and I have got this achievement first try.
Same fight yourself in the arena tactics as before. I used:
2x Trap Setter
I got it after a couple tries, although I guess this one is dependent on which blight cards you own.
Rewards another 2k gold, got it with the usual tactics, very simply with:
Disruptor (Raider 2/4/2 Valour 1 payback)
Although I suppose Disruptor is a card people might not have yet, I would say this can be done pretty easily with any valor card, all you need it to have a card with enough delay or low enough damage to give the opponent a 1 card lead always
Find an empty deck in the arena, or fight yourself in an empty deck
9x medics (or any 0 attack assault cards or structures)
1x Trap Setter
This deck is good because it can be played on auto without fail.
Just got Bloodthirsty Pet using a method based on Zacharias777’s
EDIT: I’m pretty sure all the Blight cards mentioned below are available as rewards for completing the new missions
Festerich( Although if you have the Blood Spout, that is a lot easier to get and a lot more useful on this)
5 x Barrage Tank
If you have the decks then its a fairly time effective 4,000 Gold.
Against the Odds – 74
I made a pretty simple deck of mainly pelicans and finished this one pretty easily
Cannon walker (at this point if you have more cannon walkers or pelicans instead of the other cards they are fine to include, the havoc just sits nicely if played first)
I guess i used some quite advanced cards there but if you are missing any of the last 4 they can be substituted with almost anything, my tactic was play Havoc, then pelicans and cannon walker, then anything else, just trying not to kill the opponent before I could play all my cards
Against the Odds – 80
The deck I used contains a lot of those rarer cards although great results can be achieved using more Brood walker based decks
Dracorex; 3x Hatchet, Blood Pool, Draconian Queen, 2x Brood Walker, Malgoth, Shapeshifter, Asylum
Just got this achievement with this deck, It works well in that it doesn’t wipe out the enemy before you can get out all your cards, could possibly use some tweaking though
