Finally got Axis last night after Obelisk the day before! On that final Axis run it was ridiculously easy. Not sure if I just got good drops or if I had maintained a better base or what. I was shocked. Maybe the game just felt sorry for me. Was seeing blocks in my head while trying to go to sleep last night.
Now I just need the last Rapunzel achievement which isn't hard just a grind then get all Gold on Hard.
