If you don't, then either you're unlucky, or you didn't upgrade them fast enough. Continue upgrading your blue mages.
RBW4, your blue mages should be fully upgraded. During wave 4, only upgrade one of your blue mages (the 1st one that levels up). Do not upgrade the other blue mage.

Strategy:
1 - Start off building and completing the mage setup in the picture.
Upgrade evenly, except rush 2 units per side to level 3, and rush all level 4 to level 5. (when i say rush, i mean the 1st level 2 unit that can be upgraded to level 3 should be, even if you haven't upgraded everyone to level 2 yet)
Prioritize the 2 mages per side closest to the middle corridor.

2 - At around wave 13 you should have lots of gold, so fill up the top and bottom squares with warriors. Upgrade everyone when they level, focusing on mages first.
When you reach the point where the enemies die before they even reach the bottom, stop upgrading your mages and focus on your warriors.

3 - At around wave 21, you should have lots of gold, and since you shouldn't upgrade your mages any further, go ahead and fill out every square with warriors. The picture doesn't cover this because it looks messy.

4 - At the final boss level just focus on upgrading the warriors on 1 square to a very high level (7 or so). You need about 5 lives in order to beat this.

  1. Hey man you did a great job in the first walkthrough, so when I did a search to help me with the not so vast forest and saw your name attached I thought, nice!

    However, I do not see a not so vast forest screen shot here, and you have the Forgotten Bridge, which I don't have available on my map.

    I'm confused! I guess I'm just asking, are there different maps?

    ReplyDelete
  2. I have the same issue as staff 23. I do not have Forgotten Bridge either. Perhaps you were playing a different version of the game, or did it in a different order?

  3. The forgotten bridge becomes available after completing the elemental forest (if following this guide).

    Simply move ahead, and backtrack once it becomes available.

  4. For the Not So Vast map my solution was:

    warrior opener > Poison blade
    mage opener > energy
    general > extra lives + cheap hiring
    and pavement if you have too much skills lying around

    strategy is filling the entry points with mages and middle section with poison warriors as much as possible. just keep filling them without upgrading. pave and spam warriors. at first mushroom make the warriors poison. then consecrate and generalize them. the mages are energy and general.

    the last boss goes down easily with consecrated poison blades.

  5. hm got problems with the missing "forgotten bridge" map. if i go one with the next maps, i have missing skill pts or something else.

    Old Shaven Road

    that map never works with that tactic, dont know if that is because of the missing skill point.

    ReplyDelete
  6. The forgotten bridge comes after you beat Old Shaven Road!

  7. hmmm.
    The only problem that I have with this is that its STOLEN!


    Northern Polarity of C.O.C.A.K. took time to write this, not for jackasses like you to steal!

    This site owns this walkthrough: http://cocak.blogspot.com/2008/07/protector-reclaiming-throne.html

    Not you!



    thank you, d00terr

  8. @ d00terr: Maybe you should read before write next time.
    If you weren't THAT blind in anger you'd probably notice the proper credit given.
    Apparently that is a hell lot of words for you to read so I'll do you a favour and I'll repeat them here.

    "...Walkthrough made based almost completely in NorthernPolarity's job at Cocak"

    PageRank 5 link from a site with 10 times more visits than Cocak included.

    So... I really don't want to discuss Intellectual Property Rights with a random kid in the net.

  9. hi, thank you for the walkthrough was very useful on some lvls i was having trouble with.. are you planning to update with the remaining lvls? one note, on curious stones you write half poison/energy where it should be half cold/energy.. happy hunting ^_^

  10. @Cafe_Cafe There are so many things wrong with your reply to d00ter.

    First of all, even if d00ter were to read the entire walkthrough (which generally isn't the case since I would think that most people would only use it when they're stuck on a certain section), I doubt that they'd even notice the tiny 8 font single line crediting NorthernPolarity. Since people generally don't read the entire walkthrough, I doubt that sticking your proper credit at the very end of the walkthrough helps either.

    And about that "proper credit". I was comparing this walkthrough to the one on COCAK, and the only differences I see are the removal of the introduction and changing the caps lock to bold. Since you say that this walkthrough is "based" on NorthernPolarity's walkthrough, I would expect some revision of strategies to make it more smoother, rewording of strategies to make it sound better, hell even redoing the pictures so instead the ugly circles present, there are nice numbers on top of the mages or something. But you didn't even do that. You even left the parts that began with an asterisk that sound completely unprofessional. Your "proper credit" sentence should be reworded to "We copy pasted NorthernPolarity's walkthrough, and made some extremely minor, insignificant edits so we could say that we made it."

    Oh actually, you guys did seem to change something. you swapped the order of Old Shaven Road and The Forgotten Bridge levels.Judging from the comments, I see that your only major change to the walkthrough has worked extremely well for your readers.

    I'm disappointed of how when I looked up "Protector Reclaiming The Throne Walkthrough", the first link had this crappy, plagarized walkthrough in it. The COCAK one looks much better.

  11. @Cafe_Cafe

    You're an idiot. That link is so tiny. Whether you've given Nothern Polarity due credit or not, its still stolen, simply for the fact that you don't have his permission or Cocak's permission to post it here. I talk to Nothern Polarity almost daily, and know that's the case. So don't be stupid, try asking permission before copying, changing 3 things, and posting.

  14. Everyone just realised the best way to defeat Not So Vast Forest, lol can't believe I didn't think of it sooner. Just invest 2 or so points in the increase lives skill tree, makes the enemies go through twice^^.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The very BEST tactics for Not so Vast Forest map (on normal):

    Place only 2 mages so they hit the mobs at the 2 entry points and also on the middle. Train them with cripple and specialism, infliction etc. Focus only on the cripple stuff. So u can beat it with only 2 mages, they will have also nice levels at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  16. THIS IS GREAT! EVERYTHING WORKED FOR ME! THANKS! YOU'RE AN ABSOLUTE GENIUS!

    ReplyDelete
  17. For Not So Vast Forest i just maxed out lives and used as many poison warriors with high level consecrate as possible^^ Poison consecrate pwns the snake at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  18. i used energy warriors
    for not so vast
    i dont remember my build but i had one life left
    the snake was super easy

  19. Sorry but the WT for the map 'The Concert' doenst work... on lvl 10 there's a flying enemy and the two archer guys cant kill it...

    ReplyDelete
  20. The only problem is when you get to "The Old Throne" you have one skill point to many. You only have 17 at that point, but great other wise!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hey, I reached the final map before I had to get help and thx for it :).

    One question, wouldn't it be more efficient to use purple mages instead of red? Considering the last mob is strong vs fire and absorbing?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well i did it, but did it differently.

    First: You can't just take it with energy, the red rounds fly through

    Second: The final boss hardly made a round in the first square.

    I did it by using red mages, 6 on each side. 2 are close to the middle, a free space and then 4 more reds (so they can hit as much as possible).
    My purple mages where in placed 1 square away from the corner square, so they can hit as much as possible. Had 4 on each side in the top (where the mobs move past twice).

    In the end, my purple mages hit legendary status (against the final mob) and took him out easy.

    Around lvl 13 or something, I started using knights in the bottom and slowly filling up.

    But mages did majority of damage and remember to use destruction.

    Just my 5 cents, GL & HF :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. And forgot to mention, I didn't take altered states, but instead i went with hardy, scouts, telescopes, camouflage (enemies had 10% less hp in total)

    ReplyDelete
  24. at Stonefield Border ur using 20 skillpoints but at that point we only have 19, so :P yeah

  25. Forgotten Bridge Screenshot doesn't match your instructions.

  26. Thanks a lot for your guide!

  27. Uhm...
    Quite your plagarising whinging. The original blog has been removed.
    Other than that, this turned an almost impossible (and boring) game into the best TD I have ever player!
    All applause to original author!

  28. some of you are idiots, some of you aren't. walkthroughs aren't ever the greatest, simply because of the fact that they don't know EXACTLY what ur doing, can't say 'oh you screwed up here, fix this" instead they give a basic format and then expect it to be mostly true. in fact i had an easy time beating not so vast forest with just 4 skill points. 3 on lives and frugal. then just keep putting poison warriors with consecrate in the middle, where they hit everything twice. there are some leaks, but it works, as long as you put the warriors to make it right.

    i hate it when people complain about a walkthrough. its a basic format, a general outline. some games there are only one solution. this isn't one of them. on this kind of a game, take the general idea, and then (oh the horror) use ur brain and think of a new strategy (even if its just with a few minor changes) and beat it. amazing! who knew!

    i do believe that this is stolen. giving someone credit for doing something but taking it without their permission is still stealing. i stole your idea to make guns with bullets. ok so i say it was your idea, but without your consent, it is still a stolen idea (not sure if this is the greatest example[if it makes it easier, replace "gun with bullets" with something very simple]) like this example, it makes sense in my mind, but may not in yours. in fact, you may need to edit what i said a little to make it work for you. the same general principle applies with walkthrough.

    btw. NorthernPolarity, obviously you aren't here or ever here because if you were you would have given at least a 5 page rant, or at least said something, but great job. however, if you DID design the walkthrough here, or at least the section about the captured shipyard, followin ur instructions, it doesn't work, and if i can count (pray to god i can =D) then u have 1 extra skill point. but then i completed the 3 maps after it and still wasn't able to do it.

    and before you go calling me an idiot/hypocrite, yes i did retry the map. yes i did do different things (i thought archers would be easier cuz they have a longer range and a lot of creeps were slipping past with like2-30 health left/changed the order in which i placed things AFTER the blue marked guys/saved money and didn't upgrade as much but placed more guys. my main attempts, but sadly failures). mmm time to try again =D

    oh and TY NORTHERN POLARITY FOR MAKING THIS, A GREAT HELP

    2) THANK YOU FOR MAKiNG IT OBVIOUS THAT YOU "copy pasted..... minor insignificant edits" and that "walkthrough made based almost completely in NorthernPolarity's job at Cocak"

    3) thank you for reading my entire long rant/explanation/attack on others/comment. if u actually read the entire thing, i applaud you. if not thats fine, i probably wouldn't read someone else's freakishly long rant anyways =P

    ReplyDelete
  29. btw shout me on kong if u have anthing else to say, i probably won't ever look at this again =P

    shout it out on krystar's profile.

    if i was offensive i'm sorry, some things just tick me off =)

  30. i did what it said and still lost =(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Omg like 3 of the maps what I tried I lost!!! these walkthroughs sucks!! I did excatlly what you said in that tutorial -_-

    ReplyDelete
  32. Did you have all the skills? Did you upgrade the protectors or not when you should? Typical prolems, just pay attention and do the maps in the order written here to get skill points to spend.

  33. he doesn't want us to see that he is playing on Coward difficulty! that's why sometimes it doesn't work!

    ReplyDelete
  34. For me this walkthrough was shit. I ussed it only for the last map. First of all the title of the last map is written wrong. Second I followed this walkthrough step by step and got beaten at W13. Luckily I managed to beat the map on my own later.

    If I knew how. I would write my own walkthrough :p

  35. for stonefield border make two wars in front archers and upgrade them speed, start out with just 1 and wen u make that one an archer make another

  37. Hmm, I've used the tactics you have suggested on "The Concert", and it works, but I don't understand why you made it so complicated.
    I just built one warrior as close to the entrance as I could, waited until the second wave before I upgraded him to fire, then I just upgrade him whenever I get the chance using the following steps.
    Level 2: Fire
    Level 3: Berserk
    Level 4: Generalist
    Level 5: Archery
    Level 6: Speed
    Level 7: Generalist
    Level 8: Speed
    Level 9: Holy Vision

    You do not need any more units, and you won't leak.

  38. Edit
    Level 9: Vision Blessed

  39. Evil Stronghold - Can someone help me with this board. It does not appear to have a walkthrough and is the last board.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice tactic, too bad it doesnt work, at all...

    I tried it with maxed skills and you cannot survive the first wave, even if you time your upgrade well. I guess you were playing in coward mode?

  41. That tactic actually works if you modify it for normal mode. you have to put 2 warriors at the entrance near the top of the screen (right near where the creeps exit). Then put another warrior at the other side of the maze, one ring closer towards the middle from the other 2 warriors, where it can hit the creeps as they come from both directions.
    Level the 2 warriors at the entrance in the sequence that anonymous laid out, and level up the lone warrior up to level 4 using that same sequence, then leave him be and just level the other 2. You'll leak some, but if you have all the required warrior skills and extra lives etc... you can beat it just with those 3.
    Upgrade the

  42. I just realised. Red and yellow on Forgotten Bridge are reversed.
