TPA2 hints.
« on: February 13, 2010, 06:43:21 PM »

It is impossible to make a walkthrough for TPA2, because there is no storyline to talk about, but hints are available:
1: Don't redo arena battles, go to the trainer and ask for a battle.
2: You dont have to do the challenges, but it is strongly recommended.
3: Think of everything that can happen when you make a move.
4: Get a healer no matter what, they're a must have.
5: Always have at least one swordsman, they can handle themselves on the front lines.

I played throught the game demo (the longer one before CraigStern shortened it to what it is now) without a healer on normal difficulty. I don't think they are must have or anything. I lost only 2 of my units in the whole thing. People use different tactics, so for some a healer MAY be a must have. Even if I didn't need one

All I can say is that the game is quite beatable with quite a number of different combinations, including a team made up of same unit type or of all 8 different units (exception would be one or two challenges that have a boss immune to physical attacks). For instance, instead of having a healer, having 4 Psy Fighters specializing in 4 different elemental attacks with Vengeance will make 4 quite all-round self-supporting units. Then again, having a  mostly Shadowling/Spriggat team might have its disadvanatge of having restriced elemental attacks against enemies with resistance to them, so some maps will be much harder than others (same goes for mostly-ghost maps agains melee teammates).
Another point to make is that no matter what, try not to lose any units: it's not worth losing one after training it hard, then buying a new one- the gold investment is too high, especially towards the latter stages of the torunament.

Sure healers aren't a must-have, but I bet your two teamates wouldn't have died if you had one.

I just had a team of assasain's (on easy) and two shadowlings (guardian and fighter) and I completed the game with very few casualties (until the battle with Zem The Reaper)

It is very much possible to beat Zem the Reaper without anyone dying. Effectively you'll have to get rid of his minions first whilst staiyng out of his way (try going up the right flank and the left flank to lure our the Greater Ghosts). After that tackle the Tig and the White Cape. Finally, try to  surround Zem from 4 sides and have a healer on stand-by who can give back about 40 health. This should do the trick. (Having an assassin dealing circa 80 backstab can be useful too.)

2: You dont have to do the challenges, but it is strongly recommended.

Why? I always redid the arena battles.  Also, some of the challenges unlock orbs (I'm not sure if any of them are useful as the wiki is apparently off.)

Also: W00T! KZ's back!

Well, Bromtaghon, the first one relates to the fact that you get less and less cash for each consecutive completion of an arena battle- so it's better value to go to the trainer, the second one is useful because all of them unlock orbs and also (eg league 5 ned battle) allow you to tackle unique enemies!

I'm also glad to be back ;)

Meh, I just like replaying The Phantom Menace due to my extreme narcissism...

I repost Rainen's question.
