Title says it all, I'm looking to beat wave 20 on DoW II's Last Stand. Ideally without having to resort to the glitch trick. I only have the CR expansion, not Retribution (bloody typical: when it came out, I was off the hobby, now that I wan't it, I can't afford it ). The Sorcerer and Tyrant are my highest levelled characters, with the Captain falling behind, the Farseer on around lvl 3, and I'm not going to bother with the Mekboy. I've only ever reached wave 20 once, and that was one of the first few games I ever played. Now that I know what I'm doing, the highest wave I usually reach is the one with the Wraithlords. Frustratingly, it doesn't help that I tend to get teamed with young/inexperienced gamers. The last sesh I had, I spent most of it rezzing a SM who didn't know how to run.
Any tips or tricks? Build suggestions? Strategies?
I've noticed that unless I'm paired with some geared out, experienced team mates, the hardest wave I struggle with is....10, I think. The one with the plasma marines and scouts. Weirdly, the waves get easier until the Wraithlord/Carnifex hordes. Or maybe that's just me...
Does anyone else think the Tyrant is appalling? I want to love him, but get endless frustration as his pathfinding is God-awful, he runs away when assaulted if he's armed with a ranged weapon (even forcing him to engage in melee is an exercise in terrible pathfinding and aligning), and his maneuverability is pants.
