The idea of the build is stacking all towers in the back and thus keeping the amount of traps needed to keep towers safe from spiders to a minimum. The indicated range stats are important for this build, especially for auras.

This build requires moderate DPS and repairs. You will fail with the stats above if you die too early. I ran a Huntress with about 120k DPS on NM difficulty. A DPS pet helps with keeping spiders away from you. The build can definitely take you further than wave 15, but I doubt that the stats above are enought to finish the run. Spiders and Dark Elf Warriors can overwhelm you quite easily if you don't run around the core like someone with a surplus of chromosomes. 


1. You want to be strafing in this general area while killing ogres.

2. If you find that the small stuff dies easily enough and you need more sniping power for Dark Elf Warriors and Ogres you can try reallocating some DU here. The Inferno Traps can be switched for Explosive Traps. Then replace the three forward facing Flameburst Towers with two Deadly Striker Towers (and an Elemental Barrier somewhere to fill the DU).This has not been tested but may actually be a more optimized version of the build. Replenishing the Explosive Traps without getting killed might pose a challenge.

3. These are potential dead spots for Djinns, but I have never had any trouble with them.

4. Ogres throw snot balls all the way to the back across the map. High tower health gives you more time to repair. Interestingly, this seems to be less of an issue during later waves.

Have fun with the build and let me know how it works with lower/higher stats, Enjoy the fireworks!
