Strategy Edit

  • On the final mission, a team of Cleric/Warmaster/Druid forms a good backbone for almost any frontline, such as the Knight, Blackguard, or Monk.
    • A 6 or 7 star Monk makes a good tank in the final mission, as the Sunder will not impact him as much as traditional tanks. However, the lack of taunt may expose the backline to snipes from the Bombards.
    • If running a traditional tank such as the Knight, Cleanse and/or Disenchant are necessary in order to stay alive on the final mission.
    • The Druid is also very helpful on the final mission. Her Invigor should be prioritized on the Cleric to maintain a low Cleanse cooldown, while stacking Entangle on the Suit-of-Arms almost eliminates them from the battle. With stun abilities like Soul Rend to delay their cycle + stacking Entangle's slows, Sunder will almost never appear. Renewal is a free full heal in a pinch, and Rapid Regeneration counters the Steel Serpents and Bombards almost entirely, unless the Bombard is lucky enough to Take Aim and critical hit the backline.
    • The Warmaster can prove pivotal in maintaining high defense levels for a low armour/defense backline, especially if running a front line without a taunt like the Monk. His Call to Arms is also as useful as ever. Be sure to use Heavy Bash and Shield of Valor to add a little more damage to this defensive line-up.
  • Unless your team has high area damage or dispel to circumvent taunt, focus the Suit-of-Arms first. Their low-cooldown taunt makes attacks on other enemies wasted. Once the Suit-of-Arms dies, the defensively weak Bombard/Chill Turret/Steel Serpents can be focused, and the stage becomes easy.
  • Sometimes replaying the mission can help, as victory or defeat may depend on your luck whether Cleanse arrives promptly after Sunder or not.

Trivia Edit

Although the name of the campaign is actually called Rise of the Machines, when you check the components and click 'find more' after you completed all the standard chests or before completing chapter 1, it will say "Look out for the special event: Mason's Isle".
