I'm a newbie that sucks
I can't get passed the second map. The last wave always steamrolls me. Is that unusual for a level 5 character? What should I be doing to improve?

i recently started playing this week. i didnt have this trouble to start and went with the mage as well. you may want to bring the level down a little or do what i did and just keep playing it and leveling till you beat it

You are level 5, what stats did you upgraded? How are you playing the aprentice? As a DPS (fighter) or as a Builder? Both need different stats to be upgraded,

If you are a builder use the first upgrades for Tower attack, then spam the magic misiles with in front of that, that magic shield, this should get you past level 2, if not ad me and i will see how you play and correct you there,

For early game you'll want to just retry with different tactics each time. You'll gain a bit of XP each try and the levels will help you a bit each time. Make sure you try to pinpoint where your fault is, do you need more damage on the ogre? Try upgrading your *Apprentice's hero damage and just focus him when he shows up. Are your towers falling? Try placeing walls in front of them and increasing their health or damage, maybe even the range so that they don't get hit as easily. The game take a bit of learning but the forges level is most definatly beatable with a mage lvl 5, you just need the right tactic ^.^

Also if you want you can add me and I'll run through with you! =^.^=

a good way is to try and find lobbys that people will go through campaign on a high difficulty as those give pretty good exp for low levels im like to do insane or nm campaign runs for levels 0-50 sometimes

I put all my upgrade points into hero attack. I tend to not lose any towers until the last wave, when it all goes to hell

The real thing is Strategy, if you find your blockades aren't defending, make 2 rows of blockades, as for the ogre, place fireball towers and just stay behind defences keeping them repaired.

I'm getting about 70 kills into the last wave now. Much better than before but still not good enough. I tried building at two points and defending the 3rd myself, but I couldn't hold against the last wave. A large part of the problem is that they have the fire element and my hero's main attack is fire.

Hmm, in that case Make a backup defence back at the crystals; two defences should be enough, I can help you later if you're still struggling.

attempts to decrease the difficulty, see videos tutorials, most be helpfull

build the whole defense closer to the crystal (so you can rush there to save the day + upgrading a defense repairs it instatntly) and use the minimap regularly (shift) to check on the situation of the map + try to use more than 1 hero :) makes life easier that way (like placing a monk slow aura infront of your defense), or try to play with people online ^^
