stuck at cave 45

I beat lvl 45 with 35k dark mana… Only relevant thing I had higher than you was armor at 25 instead of 20 (attack was only 27 for me). Use the strat I explained at http://www.kongregate.com/forums/32497-cave-heroes/topics/619567-boss-guides and it should be easily beatable for you.

That helps alot thx

You should also use some speed ups to get past hard boss fights. The level 50 boss doesn’t drop anything permanent, so level 45 has the last permanent drop, not including the mystic boxes.

Do the scrolls you get at level 50 with the really small percent bonus to other scrolls persist through dark rituals?

There isn’t any skill involved in clicking the dark ritual button or clicking the auto-battle button, and if you’ve gotten into the 40’s chances you’ve done it at least a dozen times as is. It would still be slower than manual ,as well, without the 2x button being clicked, or the teleport option turned on.


83k dark mana, cleared up til 49 before, didnt have a lot of feathers at that point so i reset, figuring floor 50 would take a bit more of me, i plan to reset my perks away from loot and go to 50 after this round


i still maintain that dark ritual should not be automated, but yor most welcome to feel as you do

True, but efficiently farming dark mana takes more effort than letting it run for eight hours.

whats really needed is overseers for foundry, workshop, gold miners and jewelers, leaving the combat bit and dark ritual bit that we (at current point) might not be able to beat without veterans snipers and archmages to manual management along with spells

Is that efficient? I’ve been farming mana by resetting whenever my heroes start to slow down. That’s a lot quicker than overnight.

How to kill this guy?

Common strategy for killing demon guardians is to not get any armor or hp bonuses, just get attack upgrades, and skip upgrading the cleric’s heal ability. Then the monster’s scaled stats will be much easier. Try fighting him a few times, then use speed up if you need to get extra protect spells.

Topic: Cave Heroes / Perks

The overseers really help in farming dark mana. My heroes will clear cave 20 if I don’t do anything if I have all the overseers active. And they’ll pick up the overseers for the prod bonus too. So dark mana is pretty easy to farm if you are close by enough to reset once your team slows down. Only problem is the heroes sometimes bug out and get stuck on a treasure after resetting the game. So I’d reload the page every time you reset. You can probably clear up to cave 15 by autoplaying if you have 3.3k dark mana.

Are there any benefits to using a pure attack/no hp/no armor arsenal build once you have killed all the guardians?

I think it unlocks the cleric’s protect ability. It has a chance to place a protect on a random hero.

SPOILER——

question to those that beat the boss

did any of you buy the dark equipment “absorber” did you get to keep it on next reset or do you need to buy it each playthrough?

You can test it out. Save/export the game and buy it. If you keep it the price should go up, if not it should stay the same. Or you could just save/export, buy, then reset.

For lvl 30 boss you need 2 things: ranging ability for your archer and enough healing from your cleric to heal 666 or more (I did it with slightly less and healing spells). If your cleric can heal 666 or more, he can permanently keep your warrior alive and eventually your archer will build up enough attack power through ranging to kill it. It might look hopeless, but there’s a lower limit to how much he can debuff your attack and eventually ranging starts building it up from there. Be prepared to speed up the fight and wait a few minutes for it to end.

Thanks. That helped a lot. I did it with a cure about half as strong. I got lucky with the combo of protection and healing spells. I found out you don’t need a ton of protection spells either. I’d only start out with 6 or 7 instead of 10. The rest should be healing. Plus with the bonus spell production you can pop off a decent number of new healing spells during the battle.

Question for you guys. How do you use the spell “Speed up”? Do you use it as soon as you get the feathers? Do you wait till you hit dark ritrual and get through the first set of caves? Or do you wait till you hit a hard wall, then use it for extra resources to try and go farther? Just wondering, I have 6 geathers saved up (aka 2 casts) and im wondering when I should best use it.

Use it when you hit a hard wall and are about to get something that will last after a dark ritual.

Topic: Cave Heroes / Overseer

I’d really like it if we could change the attack order, having my warrior attack the overseer is really frustrating. My archer could one-shot him. And the overseer is the main reason why I buff the warrior so much.

I don’t have SHC yet, but I want to try a layout similar to this once I get it. It has the same number of generators but slightly more offices+banks total and 7 gwps.

I tried one similar to the second, but I had trouble getting enough water to feed the generators. The first one worked out better for me.

Start dumping all your money into research upgrades and then when your research levels are decent switch all power plants to research. You need Gen3.

you will find it a pain expanding water gens exponentially until you get ground water pumps unlocked (due to limitations in placement and pipe transfer rate),
After that you will shoot up again to a new plateau until you get Gen 3 unlocked,
Then you will repeat this process and shoot up again in production using fusion cells instead of ThermoNuke.

The waiting for upgrades sucks just blow a ton of money on research upgrades and then set your maps full and wait a while. The benefits of waiting a day for the upgrades are absolutely worth it imo.

Yeah, that is what I’m doing. My city is all research, I’m getting nearly 11m a tick, which is about 5x the next highest power plant. And then region is my only plant making money. It seems to be working out well for me.

Have you reset yet? If not I would buy as many crusader levels as possible then reset for the idols. The idols should help you out on your next run.

Topic: RobotPet / Suggestions for upcoming updates

1. Sorting needs to be fixed. I have more than 200 gold and platinum items, so I can’t find my new ones. At the very least you should be able to sort by descending and ascending order so that you could see your newest items.

2. You should get scrap when you sell gold.

4 or 5. As long as the game mechanics don’t drastically change to require the use of gold.
