Damn you, Yeti!
I tried a lot of strategies trying to defeat it. But he has like 65 Red Mana after round 3 or 4 and then he just obliterates you. I tried stuns, chains etc. But nothing worked. Any hints or tips?
Playing as Oberon.

My wife FINALLY beat him last night and she had a lot of trouble getting through. I had not played the game at all, but her asking me for help got me into it.

Basically I had her go back through all the other screens, make sure that she had battled everyone else she could, to get all the XP available up to that point, also had her find all the hidden treasures in all the rooms. Then with whatever amount of cash she had available, she went back and also upgraded her weapons to the max possible. By this time, she was at around level 20 from when she was at level 16 before and was able to take him down without him even so much as taking two shots at her.

Something else to do, is to do quick battles, if you're missing any items for upgrading your weapons to max and have the cash for it.

I'll ask her for tips and see if she posts them here to help you out some more. :B1:

You need to keep him from getting any red mana even if means taking damage from skulls. Get some skill for stunning and another for lowering opponents mana. Templar learns Drain Power on level 20 but if you don't have it then just leave Yeti alone and fight other things until you get it. Upgrading your equipment also helps.

I had a bit of a hard time with the yeti myself. I just beat him. I explored the rest of the ice caves to get as many levels as possible then went back to confront the beast.

I'm playing with the Sorcerer. I mainly used Dark Channels to absorb all the red mana from the board. First off it denies him the ability to power that Crush move of his, and also it does 1 damange for every 1 red mana that you collect.

Chasm was also a vital part in taking him down. Try to line up as many skulls and purple gems in a single attack as possible. On average I did about 30 damage per Chasm.

Even if you're not playing with the Sorcerer the most important thing to remember is to NOT use any blue gems and try to use as many red gems as possible. He heals when blue gems are used and he takes damage when red gems are used.

Good luck with this.

From what I've experienced, fighting the yeti and losing will award you with XP in an equivelent amount to the damage inflicted upon it in battle. I believe this is true regardless of enemy type but I am no expert.

This will not help you to defeat the creature but will allow you to gain the necessary spells/attributes to eventually succeed! Also, the previous comments are all very helpful, thanks for the tips.

Oh, damn, damn, daaaaaamn Yeti.
I'm also stuck horrible there, i got close, really close to ebat him, he only had 1 energy left, and then he used that crushing thing of his and blew me into smithereens.
And Steam thought it was so funny it gave me an "Epic Fail" achievement :(
Rarely have i felt so crushed.

But yeah, all the points you make are really good, best thing is to level up a bit more, hopefully i can get back and send him packing!

I got an epic fail on this chump too :/. Frustrating on the healing. I got stupid with a Blue Mana build which kept healing him. I found that using my Sorcerer's skill to knock all the reds off the board was handy - along with a little legenday/epic poison damage.. then mix a combo of maxxing out damage/extend turn/defence with your other skill/item selections. If you can build a character around red mana it should be a breeze. I build mine around blue unfortunately .. which made it a tad on the impossible side until I switched up tactics.

Thanks for all the advice! I was using blue too...but ready to go try it again!

I bet Yeti on 9th or 10th (don't remember) try with the Templar on Normal difficulty. I was level 12 and used spells Defensive Wall, Brace, Focus, Counter Attack and Rush. I also had a mace, which dealt 13 damage for 6 action points and 13% chance of critical attack.
A tactic was to collect as more yellow and action gems as possible and not letting the Yeti to collect red ones. Also, don't forget about the Defensive Wall - apply this spell when there's a huge ammount of purple gems. The sooner you do it, the better chances for survival you'll have.
When your yellow mana reaches maximum and you have about 50-60 action points, you can stun the Yeti with Rush and start beating him with weapon. Don't forget about matching gems on the board, if there are some good combos.
P.S. However, everything depends on luck, I have to admit it.
Good luck.

I agree with the others...go in with good equipment and try to block him from building red mana. Widdle him down with some strong weapon or spell attacks before it's able to unleash that "Crushing Kill"!
