This tower is only available in this campaign. Once you have beaten all of the levels in this campaign with 3 stars each, it becomes fully usable throughout other levels in the game.


Level 1: Slater Town

Mythical beasts crawl their way onto the peaceful villages of Slater, sitting just by the Starlight River. The bloodthirsty creatures claimed many innocent lives of the people and troops stationed there. It is vital that this matter be investigated immediately, and the demons be vanquished from the area.

MAP

This level has simple curvy paths moving around houses of people in the Slater Town. Bodies can be seen on the ground in pools of blood, and many dead elves were stacked up in a pile of corpses to the north-eastern corner of the map, where creatures can be seen feeding inside the flesh of the victims. Houses are left opened up, doors and windows ripped out of hinges, leaving the cold darkness inside with occasionally red, flickering eyes.

x3 Eastern Entrances
x1 Northern Entrance
x1 Surprise Entrance (Northwestern) - open at wave 9

x1 Western Exit
x1 Surprise Exit (Southern) - open at wave 6

The main path is intersected at 2 points, one by the 2 northernmost Eastern Entrances and 1 Northern Entrance, another by the remaining southern Eastern Entrance, and curves very far southwards, allowing enemies entering through the south Eastern Entrance to take a very short route to the nearby Surprise Southern Exit. The Surprise Northwestern Entrance provides a twist to the player's strategy when open near mid-game and send in flocks of shock troops to the main path, heading for the Western Exit.

ENEMIES

Recurring: Twilight Harasser; Twilight Avenger; Twilight Scourgers; Redcap; Sword Spider; Webspitter Spider.

The recurring twilight elves are coming only from the Surprise Entrance in large numbers. Their immense might shall rock the player's set up defense.

Spiders serve as first enemies, weak and numerous, followed by the new foes. Since this is mostly a warm up level, all are easy. At least the difficulty is less than Dusk Chateau.

Blade Flier

Bloody creatures as sharp as forged swords, taking down their preys by a thousand stabs from their own bodies.

Each Blade Flier is a flying combination of sharp metal shrapnel whirled together by reddish energy. It strolls along the air at a great speed until meet with a unit, which it will stab once, dealing damage, before resume flying. It may also occasionally attack other enemies that are not twilight elves, but deal less damage.

Eldar Fire-Breath

Off-springs of dragons, yet to grow wings, but already their fangs crave boiling blood.

These enemies are very similar to Gnoll Reavers in terms of appearance: the same toad skin, curved shape and folded spine. Only, the Eldar Fire-Breaths breathe balls of fire at their victims, and their sharp teeth are far superior at ripping stuffs apart. They only attack from afar once before proceed into melee, unless their target is busily fighting with another one of their own, in which case many Eldar Fire-Breath can stack up at one spot blowing embers constantly at the soldier.

HP: 300

Armor: Medium
Magic Resistance: Low

Level 2: Black Ravine

"Making your way past the thickness of hostile forces surrounding Slater Town, it becomes obvious that the twilight elves are related to this surprise assault. Having found one of their campsites in the Black Ravine, you shall proceed to attack the area and hopefully gain some new knowledge about the issue, and the increasingly deadly creatures you are facing."

MAP

x4 Entrances
- x2 Northern, spaced from each other.
- x1 Western and x1 Eastern, one on each midpoint of the edges of the map.

x3 Exits
- All of them lie on the South edge, spaced apart.

Paths intersect at multiple different points, creating a small maze.

The ground is grayer than in the previous level, and there is a black stream running through the map horizontally, splitting the battlefield into two nearly equal parts. Trees are decayed and tainted black, so are leaf-less bushes on the ground. Strategic Points are somewhat far from one another, making it difficult to establish a solid choke point.

ENEMIES

Recurring Enemies: All enemies in the previous level, plus Twilight Heretic and Twilight Evoker.

New Enemies: White Blade, Eldar White-Fang, Eldar Flame-Wing, Elven Silhouette.

White Blade

"Enchanted floating swords brimming with powerful magic, these twisted creations lead the way for all massacres."

The White Blade is a large sword covered with blue sparkling energy. Similar to the Blade Fliers, it speeds into the battlefield, grouping Fliers together to maximize their deadliness. Having no mind of its own, this being knows only stabs and slashes.

The concept of this enemy is the necessity for it to hide behind Blade Fliers to achieve full potential, since their health count is rather low. When they are successfully amassed a group of Fliers, they are very dangerous due to fast flying speed, sometimes able to dodge the Burst Arrow of Arcane Archers.

HP: 220
Armor: Low
Damage: 130 True Damage
Speed: Very Fast (12% faster than Blade Fliers)

* Blade Swarm: Group other Blade Fliers as the White Blade flies pass, increasing their speed massively and boost their physical resistance by a minor amount.
* Lustful Hunt: In a Swarm, any kill achieved boosts the Swarm's speed by a small amount.

Eldar White-Fang

"Tougher, fiercer than their newborn brothers, these young dragons thirst to reinforce their fighting skills."

The White-Fang is larger and spikier than the weaker Fire-Breath, able to blow out stronger flames. Their role in battle is to open the path for their siblings to swarm in.

HP: 555
Armor: Medium
Magic Resistance: None
Ranged Fire Damage: 25-45 (single-target damage, small AOE burn)
Melee Damage: 15-35 (either a bite for Physical Damage, or a fire breath for Fire Damage and burn the victim)

The fire sponges attacks, giving dragons immunity to Fire Damage and +25% armor.
* 50% resistance to Fire Damage
* Burn victims (5 DPS over 4s)
* Cost 1 life.

Eldar Flame-Wing

"Feared beasts with a nasty habit of lighting themselves on fire. They can disintegrate whole armies with their blazing breath."

The Flame-Wing is black, with tough spiky scales along its body. It enters the battlefield flying, covered in flames, which absorb damage done to the dragon. While it is slow, the sheer power this creature bring can shatter your defense if not countered carefully.

Its fire extinguishes itself after 8 seconds, but the Flame-Wing will relight itself up after 1s. When flying, its shadow lengthens over other enemies underneath, covering them, attracting towers' and heroes' fire towards the dragon.

HP: 2,600
Armor: Low (High when on fire)
Magic Resistance: Low
Ranged Fire Damage: 44-101 (x3; very slow fire rate)
Speed: Very Slow

Give dragons immunity to Fire Damage and +35% armor. Negate effect of White-Fangs' Flaming Breath.
* 100% resistance to Fire Damage.
* Burn victims (7 DPS over 6s)
* Cost 2 lives

Enemy Hero: Elven Silhouette

"A skillful warrior of the twilight elves, responsible for the protection of Black Ravine camp. She is cold-blooded, stoic in the fray. Her blades are silent like the wind, but as deadly as poisonous neurotoxins. People claim her to be beautiful, but none have seen her face without dying under her hand."

This unit looks like a standing shadow in dark tones of purple and blue, holding her long white sword over her shoulder when idle. To move, she glides through the air, slightly above the ground.

Stats

HP: 950-1,150 (8% heal rate)
Armor: Low-Medium
Magic Resistance: Low
Melee Damage: 12-34 to 14-63

During wave 6, 9, 12 and 15, the Elven Silhouette will accompanies any group of twilight units moving pass her 3s after she respawn. She can also travel on her own, in case the twilight elves have just gone without her. She will heal when not actively fighting or taking damage, and can regain HP even when moving. She often stand behind the line, reinforcing her troops with her spells, empowering their spirit and bind your soldiers. She gradually gains skills and raise her stats with after each defeat.

If not leading any twilight invasion, she stands at her spot, where no tower can reach, using her skills from afar or occasionally shadow-jump in to intervene the fight to aid her allies. She will commence fighting if your hero is sent to her, and can also cast ranged shade bolts occasionally to deal 77-124 AOE damage.

When killed, her shadow cover rapidly ceases, revealing white long hair and face, but then she abruptly turns into smoke and melts into the earth. If the death is final and there will be no more respawn, she cannot shifts into smoke, but is totally reveals as the shadow leaves her, before screaming and dying.

Quote

When not moving, the Elven Silhouette can speaks with her own talk bubbles:

At the start of the level: "How intriguing." ; "Think you can beat us."

When remains in place: "Retreat now, I shall let some of you live." ; "You are testing our patience." ; "Not even a challenge."

When respawn: "I have returned." ; "Shadow reborn." ; "One more chance, one more chance my Lord..." ; "You made me angry!"

When killed: "No..." ; "I shall come back..." ; "Big mistake you made..."

At the start of the final wave: "Wow. Such strong willed. I am Impressed."

When killed for the final time: "No, this cannot be happening..."


Level 3: Springstream

After an exhausting victory over the twilight forces in Black Ravine, we pursue them over mountains and valleys to the River of Springsonal, where our units scout a massive base of twilight elves, backed into high stone cliff. Here a terrifying truth is unvealed: Somehow, the enemy are breeding dragons at a dangerously fast rate, explaining for the swarms of these creatures we have encountered. This is not to be disregarded, for once they have amassed enough of these beasts, on their realization of their domination dream, they can easily eliminate any life form ever exist in the Elven Kingdom.

MAP

- x2 Southern Exits

On the topmost area of the map, a spring sends water spraying down a piece of land overgrown with plants, creating multiple streams crossing over paths. Any unit standing on top of these streams is healed by 60 HP every 5s.

BOSS: Elder'Null, the Shade Lord

Elder'Null is a huge, armored, seasoned twilight elven warrior. He has been through many wars, and gained tremendously amount of experience while sharpening his fighting skills. However, Elder'Null lost his hands in one especially ferocious battle versus the Elven Army. To continue fighting and leading the Twilight Elven Force, Elder'Null used magic to form two fists out of charmed rocks. These fists not only possess even more strength than the original fists they replace, they are also able to channel even stronger magic, further increasing Elder'Null's power. Thus, Elder'Null forsakes his old sword and shield, change to fight with his devastating bare, stone hands.

Elder'Null is a sized, armored Twilight Elf, towering slightly over the height of the Twilight Golem. When he appears, Elder'Null smashes outwards from the hill where the stream of healing water starts from. By doing so, Elder'Null disrupts the normal flow of the stream, causing water to flow out in all direction and begin to heal units spontaneously, by 50 HP each time. As the water covers almost all of the map, Twilight Sirens form out of the madly-running water while Elder'Null proceeds to the main path with a massive army of Twilight Avengers, Twilight Golems and tons of dragons, which has been amassing under the hill during the ongoing battle.

Elder'Null's hands are similar to parts of the Twilight Golem. He can use them to punch at your soldiers, or slam on them, dealing damage. While channeling spells, the magic on the fists burn stronger.

HP: 9,750
Armor: Medium (40%)
Damage: 225-412
Speed: Slow

* Boss
* Holy Water: [10 seconds] Elder'Null raises his hands, causing water near him to start rippling and glowing white, healing nearby Twilight Elves by 120 HP.
* Doom Spell: [5 seconds] Elder'Null claps his hands together, causing a burst of magic anywhere on the battlefield that deal 150 Magic Damage to all soldiers and 50 True Damage to all Twilight Elves. Also dispel any effect previously affecting surviving Twilight Elves and the ground in the area, such as Silencing, ground scorch of Fiery Nuts, burning ground, ...
* Fire Weave: [12 seconds] Burn up to three towers in an area with twilight fire, allowing them to shoot 30% faster but dealing only half damage.
* Earth Command: [7 seconds] Elder'Null lifts two rocks with magic from his hands, then turn to fling them at one or two group(s) of soldiers, dealing 100-200 area physical damage each. Just a moment before the impact, Twilight Elves in the area begin moving faster, so players, with a bit of attention, can notice and move units out of the AOE.

When Elder'Null is low on health, he begins channeling a spell into himself to boost his armor by 5% per second, up to Great (90%), and magic resistance by 2% per second, up to Medium (50%), while also deal 50% more damage. As Elder'Null dies, this spell, apparently a very unstable and dangerous one, become overloaded as the boss tries in vain to save himself with magic. Elder'Null begins to burn and parts of him explode out from within, and finally his whole body blows in a huge magical explosion that kill most units on the screen and destroy a random few of your towers. Just a small number of especially strong Twilight units survive, and you still need to kill them to end the stage.

Quotes spoken by Elder'Null:

At the start of the boss battle:

"Hhahahahahaha..."

"It has been fun seeing you struggling."

"But I am here to end it all...your suffering, once and for all."

"So, surrender to my army."


Then his army swarm out from the shadow behind Elder'Null.

Upon death:

"No...noo..."


After you have beaten Springstream, the plan of taking over the Elven Kingdom and invade other lands using dragons of the Twilight Elves are defeated. Technically, you have beaten them. However, the dragons remain, still strong and thirst for power, for a position between the races in the Elven Kingdom. They amass under one leader, and here they gather, at the legendary Dragon Throne, where the mighty Dragon Lords once rule. This is their home, this, is where dragons are strongest. So welcome to:

Endless Stage: The Dragon Throne

Evil Character: The Dragon Lord

The Dragon Lord sits on a throne backed to the mountain cliff, covered by huge trees weaved together into some kind of roof. The paths are made of hard stone and sand, running out of two large tunnels to the sides of the Dragon Lord, and the surrounding forest, which consist of many tall trees and thick undergrowth.

He is huge, towering the size of Nazeru, greenscaled and spiked, with muscular upper body and a large pair of wings. He holds a staff made out of beautifully carved wood, with a skull too large to be of human on top. The trunks of trees are magically bended to shape into a proper place for the Dragon Lord to put his feet of tough scales and sharp talons.

Spell

    Dracarys fires a Flamebolt from the Dragon Lord's staff, scorching a huge area, dealing Fire Damage and burn towers for 5 seconds, disabling any special skills and remove the option of selecting the burning towers.

    Scorch Stone sets a runed stone on the path, burning nearby troops and dragons while also boosting ground dragons' speed tremendously as they are burning. More than one Scorch Stone can be active simultaneously.

    Levitate levitates several boulders from near the Throne to fling at soldiers, dealing area physical damage to all units in the area, including dragons, or at towers to stun them, disabling any attacks for 5 seconds.

    Lance instantly kill one unit. If a dragon is killed, nearby dragons temporarily move faster and deal more damage.

Quotes

Start of battle:

    "So you come to seize your doom. Kneel now and I shall grant it painfully."

    "That won't stop my warriors."

    "I pity your foolishness. Nothing can save you."

Entrance of first wave:

    "Very brave. And so we shall begin."

During battle:

    "Looks like that Shade Lord nub has failed to please me."

    "Elynie is afraid of me."

    "Burn, mortals, burn."

    "You are a total failure! Be tramped under dragons' march!"

    "My horde is endless. This land shall be no more."

    "Pitiful."

    "Come on forth, glorious dragons! Let's set them on fire."

    "Taste dragon magic!"

When Gnome Shop is used:

    "Needing help?"

    "That only work for so long."

    "You do not have infinite inventory. Surrender now."


ENEMIES

All dragons, plus Bandersnatches.

New Enemies: Eldar Bluescales; Dragon Toothpick; Wind Cape the Dragon Mage; Blueshadow Lasher.

MINIBOSS: Blueshadow Lasher

Blueshadow Lashers are huge humanoid dragons with a lot of upper body, armed with deadly dragon fire.

HP: 7,000

MINIBOSS: Wind Cape, the Dragon Mage

A loyal servant of the Dragon Lord, Wind Cape uses its deadly magic to slay anyone dare to challenge the might of the Dragon Army.

HP: 5,500
Ranged Fire Damage: 200-250 (single target).
Melee Fire Damage: 300-350 (area damage).
Speed: Very Slow

Wind Cape has a very very slow health raise after each appearance. Instead, its damage drastically rise to compensate for the low durability. Alone, Wind Cape poses little threat, but covered by other enemies, it can quickly carve through your defense by annihilating your soldiers.

Wind Cape may or may not appear every 10 waves. Only one Wind Cape can appear at once, since this is a special character. If Wind Cape appears, then there may be a maximum of one Blueshadow Lasher accompany it in that wave.

Upon death, Wind Cape collapses and turn into an orb, flies back into the dragon base.

Quote, when appearing: "Mua-ha-ha."

Does each shade soul upgrade gain another troop? I think the second Spiritual Touch upgrade is UP, it barely affects enemies.

Other than that these warriors are pretty cool, I like the third ability a lot.
In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Oh and wanted to know whether anyone would like a wolf hero?


No, there won't be an Order of the Sun.

I'd like a wolf hero, but not here. Post it in your own thread.

I think it's fine now.

I think it should have 3 upgrades, and a less extreme growth between magic resistance. More upgrades makes it more interesting in this case, to me. :)

Can't wait for the anti-paladin (unholy?) enemies! ;)

Updated with the enemies of the first levels, as well as the path design ;) Tell me what you guys think. Is there too few enemies?

I think there is enough considering how tough they're on the first level

I mean too few types of enemies. You can always spam the number.

Well in that case you should add 1 more enemy (sorta tough but not)

I like the enemies a lot. The last one gives a hint to how Reg'son acquired his Eldritch Blades, and you know how I adore lore. ;)

Twilight Fencers seem a bit too similar to Harassers. You should give them better stats or a different ability. A hint to Reg'son's Vindicator would be nice, such as mutliple slashes with a similar animation and effect. :)

Thanks :mrgreen:

I thought of giving Fencers 425 HP, but in KRO enemies do not have massive health pool to wade through defense, instead them have speed and abilities to counter different tactics. I will buff their health a little and give them a new skill. Tell me your opinion.

The new abilitu/passive effect reminds of me Seffe when I was making a nemesis for Reg'son. ;)

It's a good bonus, as it can counter FK regeneration, making Bladesingers the more specific barracks to use, without making it blatant. I imagine it would also stop Reg'son from constantly barraging one with Eldritch Blade slashes without taking secer harm himself, and also be great to counter Bravebark's and Xin's healing, too. :twisted:

Other than Perfect Parry, nothing can stand the nightmare horde of Fencers for long :twisted: Glad you like it :D I'll try to update this today or tomorrow. Still working on the enemies and environmental aspect.

Updated with one new enemy for the first level, the Blade Fliers. Its description can be found before the Eldar Fire-Breath's.
