I didn't have any of the Snail pets suggested by this strategy, so I went with Son of Sethe P/S (1,2,2) and it worked wonders.

I ended up facing two mech backups and my shimmershell snail solo'd the first two on its own. Great strat!

Rusty Snail soloed this time. If the second cockroach hadn't refreshed the count on apocalypse it might have taken too long. i think it has done it every time, but not sure.

So you know, you can take this line

ability(369) [ round=1 ]
ability(369) [ round=6 ]
ability(369) [ round=11 ]
ability(369) [ round=16 ]

and turn it into this

ability(369) [round~1,6,11,16]

Save you a little time in the future so if you need a skill to be used only on select rounds.

I guess the enemy backline varies on this fight? I had a couple undead rats, not a critter or mech. Strat still worked fine, though.

Correct, the enemy backline varies, but the critters and mechs are the hardest (imo). Ele+ beast should be able to handle the undead pretty easily after the snail dies, glad it worked for you!

TD Script line 7

change(#3) [enemy.type = critter]

doesn't work for me. I get an error when I try to save the script. I changed the name of the enemy type to the numerical value of the enemy type as follows:

change(#3) [enemy.type = 5]

The script works fine after this little change.

I had some bad luck the first time, so just to be safe go in first and see if it's the mechs or roaches and take two of the elemental or beast depending. I used Fel Flame and Searing Scorchling with Immolate, Burn, Conflagrate to destroy the mechs.

That's a bummer, I thought the snail would be strong enough to weaken them. Did you end up having to redo it?

Funny, I just did it today and soloed the entire thing with the snail (against a mech and rat)!
