LF NM HC Misty Campaign Build
Been trying to get further into NMs now that I've got some gear under my belt, but none of the builds I seem to find for the Misty Campaign seem to be up to date. Been trying to tweak the builds myself, as it seems the goblin copters are always what get me, but if someone has an up to date build it would be very much appreciated.

These are my character stats (That I use for building in NMs):
Active Countess: 1045/1106/842/610
Wall/Buff Beam EV: 942/999/630/594
Aura Monk: 408/581/689/765 (Low, I know. Working on upgrading whenever possible.)
Newly 74, future Trapper Ranger in the works. Getting him some decent Myths currently.
Newly 74, future Tower Adept in the works. Getting her some decent Myths.

You will need a very decent summoner for Copter control.

EDIT
And a very decent tower squire

As my DPS char is still a weakling my problem in Mystymire is the boss. The Wave are more easily to handle. Against the Copters I use ensnare auras, two harpoons (in the west), and a deadly striker tower (in the middle) - Chavo will chide me. Some minions are nearby but at the crystal in the west they are most likely engaged by the spiders.

If I take a look at your stats I'd assume that your auras are quite small, your harpoons' range, power and shooting frequence are quite low, and a summoner is needed.

I did forget to mention my summoner, my fault. He too, has relatively low stats.
469/651/394/454

I figure that's probably not 'quite decent' as Chavo mentioned, so I'll probably have to do some more gear searching for most of them. Which is fine if it is the case. I've just recently managed a full 25 wave survival run of NM HC Magus Quarters, so getting the mana/gear isn't so bad.

I have to emphasize, you need strong harpoons (and minions) to take out the spider quick and doing that with the nmhc spider is easier said than done when you don't have the required level.

The minions really do it for Copter control on that map.

I've quit the game for the most part but add me, I can give you a few hints on misty.

Why would I chide you mate (new word for me!) if your strategy works, that's all that matters.

This is the build I used to beat Misty. I had no issues with it, although my stats were quite a bit higher then yours when I first did it.

My recommendation is get into someone elses build or continue to farm gear. Even in mythics you can break 2k+ stats on builders which will significantly decrease stress on up'ing everything. (my Trap builder is currently in full mythics and has 1800/2700/1400/900) This build worked for me doing nothing but up'ing the buff beams/aura's and the proxi trap I have for that spider area in the middle (which I generally move to the queen fight before final wave and up it to 3 stars just for insta gibbing all the spiders around me while fighting her)

I would recommend working on a zamira set for all your toons as you should be able to solo the warping core maps or find someone to do them with you. That should help significantly increase your stats.

I've been trying Warping Core to get the Zamira as well, but I just can't seem to get a decent strategy to work. The builds I've been seeing always stop working right around the last wave.

Even just Part 1 has me stumped. And as for the mystics to break 2k+ stats, it just seems so far out of my reach, even using player shops. Even with the most expensive myths from the shops, I'm barely scraping 1k in one stat for most of my characters.

2k with myth is a bit of a show off :-)

1+k is easily possible, don't forget pets, weapons and set boni. And if you take your time you can even find good myth items for reasonable prices in quality shops.

I offered you help dude, too bad you didn't accept.

I didn't mean to ignore your post, just I had mostly decided at that point that Misty isn't really in my ability to complete, with this gear. I'm back to gear hunting for the most part, since I have to get better gear before any build strategy will work around there.

I'm not sure what part of "help" you didn't get, I could've easily opened misty for you to start farming, lots and lots of people do it that way. Anyhow, you are too proud, which is in the end is fine with me, everyone plays and lives the way they want.

Good luck.

... Well, alright. Whatever you say, dude.
