Hey guys, in this article I share with you a powerful Wind Steal strategy for winning Tower of Kings Nightmare or any other difficulty depending on your BR. Generally speaking, this strategy will allow you to beat much more difficult levels than what you are currently doing in a normal fighting way.
What you will need:
3-4 cooperative players to implement the strategy with correct timings together
Each person with Wind sylph with Steal skill (see skill info at the bottom of the article)
Additional things that help a lot:
Archer with scatter or Scatter Rune (Purge). But the rune is less effective against 8 targets (4 enemies and 4 eudaemons)
Whispering Wind skill just to buff up damage; from 1-2 players is enough
Steal Strategy for Winning TOK – Exact Steps:
Before Sylph awakening:
Use Chaos Rune.
Use any AOE (area) damage skill. Note: archer should scatter any suntoria / apollo.
Here depending on your lag you might have enough time to do 1 more skill, otherwise, if not, wait 5-10 seconds to be the first to activate sylph mode. Note: Do NOT stun enemy before sylph mode – you want all 4 of them to enter sylph mode.
There are 2 possibilities after awaken: If you are the designated person for casting the Whispering Wind skill then do that first while everyone else should cast the Steal skill. Note: you should click the Steal skill only if you see all 4 enemies entering sylph mode. If even one of them is stuck casting his last skill before sylph awakening then wait for him to click awaken. This is because you want your Steal to hit all 4 of them.
Consequences of 4x Steal
You can see on the below small picture that when you awaken you will have 3000 Awakening Points. Remember that it costs 500 points for anyone to use a powerful Delphic skill (which is often the point when people fail battles). And, you actually need more than 500 points to cast a Delphic because there is lag and waiting time for your sylph to do the casting. So when a 4 people team use 4x Steal skill then the enemy Awakening Points reduce by 2000 leaving them only 1000, which, due to lag and waiting periods is not enough to do much (not Delphic certainly).
The enemy is forced to get out of sylph mode while your party has near full Awakening Points since you Steal theirs to you. Steal skill is also an AOE type, so it works very nicely in this situation against 8 targets and can be followed up by Delphic Apocalyptic Hurricane (still with the 30% buff).
At that point the enemy is usually dead and often it does not even matter on which stage you fight as all fights happen the same way (it could even be that you kill a higher stage faster than a lower stage). If, by any chance, the enemy survives that attack wave then just finish them off the “normal” way.
What about stun?
You really don’t need to stun the enemy in this strategy. If done exactly as I described above the enemy is owned and battles finish fast. The only case where you might consider stun is after the 2 attack waves (Steal AOE + Delphic AOE) – if a particularly strong enemy survives he can be stunned.
Elements slowing down a victory in Tower of Kings (TOK):
If enemy does suntoria they could heal a lot per turn thereby delaying their death, so try to scatter it if you have an archer (or with rune, but rune is less effective against 8 targets)
If enemy does any AOE heal or Restoration: this can help them before awakening, but normally after awakening you should be able to disable their sylphs and overpower them before they start healing. Otherwise carry a Chaos Rune also for these cases so you try to get them to heal you instead of themselves.
If enemy puts an apollo shield. Similar to suntoria above, this will reduce greatly your damage, so try to scatter it if possible.
To conclude, this Wind Steal strategy can only fail if there is an enormous difference in BR, otherwise, it allows you to kill enemies much stronger than you.
