Tactics and Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • When part of a small instance (typically less than 10 players), the enemies will only spawn in Crimson Cube and Gold Sphere lanes for the first five waves, before switching over to the flanks of Blue Lozenge and Black Diamond for waves six through nine.
  • On heavily populated instances, all four lanes will spawn enemies starting with the first wave. Teams of two can keep them at bay in the heads of the canyons when properly equipped, but more players do make the task easier, especially when they lack the snowball mortar and/or turret.
  • ALL instances will spawn flanking enemies starting with Wave Six, appearing near the lower bridges of Blue Lozenge and Black Diamond lanes. It is strongly advised that you dispatch at least two players to each side to keep these enemies from escaping.
