How To Beat Epic War 3 Cave of Trials 5
Well, I finally beat cave of Trials 5 in epic war 3. And there has been some problems with other people trying to beat this level, so I’ll post here on how to beat that specific level only.
First off, you have to understand the concept of the level before you rush in. In this level the whole point is that you have to take out the enemy castle as quickly as you can with one overwhelming force. If you can’t do that, you are doomed with the shadow goblin killing all of your troops within seconds with 99,999 damage hits.
Secondly, you have to beat the game couple of times in order to get your max mana level up. I beat the game 3 times in order to get 3200 max mana so I could have the cards that I wanted. Total mana I used was 3035. With my hero being Abe Mukanaga.
The cards you will need are such as followed, these are the exact cards that I used during the battle, you can try to change them around but I don’t know how well it will turn up for you.
Goblin Warriors – 35 warriors with low hp but with the sheer number and damage capacity they are great if you can get them hitting the castled and protected.
Taurus Warriors – I like them because they got good hp and can take a hit or two, but the spawn time on them is very long in my opinion, but I still use them
Phantom Armor – They are fast like the goblin warriors and they have good range on their swing. I like them when they are attacking the castle.
Centaur Archers – Good spawn rate and they are good for taking out on coming bombers, which will be very important in this level.
Fire Succubus – Great range and they deal tons of damage when used right.
Dragon Riders – They can juggle enemies and push them back and have tons of HP to keep the in the fight.
Comet Shoot – You have to have this spell, it is great at drawing out waiting enemies and doing damage, with its 8 second cool down time.
Rain of Arrows – There are gonna be tons of bombers and goblins with low hp, and this one fills the screen, taking out towns of enemies at once with a short cool down time.
Freeze Trap – You are gonna need this towards the end.
Phoenix Strike – It is slow moving at first, but if you can time it right, you can keep the enemy at bay for every long.
Athena Protection – This card is a MUST HAVE, you need this card to fend off the 99,999 damage, at lvl 5 this card will grant you invincibility for 20 seconds.
Hercule’s Strength – Double damage for 20 seconds at lvl 5, this card is very good but it isn’t a must, but I like it.
Things you need to know: First off during this battle once the enemy’s castle reaches 75%, 50% and 25% you will see a horde of enemy bombers and goblins going towards your troops when you are attacking them, so be prepared. Second the only enemies are bombers, goblins, the enemy hero, and shadow goblin.
How to pull it off: Okay this is how you win this fight. First as soon as you have your comet cooled off use it at the enemy hero. Once he is charging towards your castle don’t worry about him, as your own here and your troops will kill him off.
Now focus on the MIDDLE of the map, the reason being is that the shadow goblin spawns right where the hero was about 15 to 20 seconds into the map, if you damage him in anyway he will run towards you and kill your castle in one hit.
Keep spamming comet and rain of arrows non stop. Use your comet to take out enemy bombers and rain of arrows to keep the amount of enemies down. Continue to do this until you have all your spells ready AND almost all of your troops ready and up. It is very important you keep your troops behind your castle as well, so if they start to creep up, manually move them behind your castle.
Once you have max dragon riders, succubus, goblin warriors, and archers and almost 12 taurus and 10 or so phantom armors, rush all of your troops towards the enemy castle. At this point do not use any spells but rain of arrows and comet. As soon as the shadow goblin moves towards your troops because you are right there at the enemy castle, cast Athena’s Protection. This will grant you to be immune from any enemy damages for 20 seconds. That is all the time you have to take down the enemy castle.
At this point you have to keep the shadow goblin infront of you at all times, he should never get past your main force, because if he does, he will take your castle out in 1 hit. With all your troops not taking damage you should be able to juggle him backwards.
Now as soon as your troops are attacking the castle, use Hercule’s Strength to do double damage for 20 seconds, while that is going once the castle hits 75% a mob of goblins and bombers will come out, use freeze trap to stop them and kill off most of them, when the castle is around 60 percent use the phoenix spell to come out and kill the goblin swarm that comes out at 50%. Keep spamming comet as much as possible during the castle attack. Once the castle is at 25% hope that you have freeze trap ready again, if not keep spamming away with comet and the castle should be down.
Once you beat the level you will get the spell card berserk, or at least I did.
This grants you 20 seconds in which all your attacks are criticals, combined with Hercules Strength and Athena’s protection, for 20 seconds your troops are GODS.
