Introduction:
Dungeon Defenders is an action rpg/tower defense game. Each map has a crystal for you to defend from waves of enemies. You have 4 heroes to choose from each with their own unique abilities/towers. Objective is to defend your crystal from the enemy. It is not your typical tower defense game as you have a Hero character you control. Your Hero can upgrade towers, upgrade his own equipment, repair towers, and freely attack the enemy.
Equipment boosts your abilities and can be upgraded to better fit your play style.

Useful links for information can be found here:
http://dungeondefenders.wikia.com/wi...Defenders_Wiki
http://forums.trendyent.com/ (Official Homepage)


Step 1 - Choosing your hero. I am going to suggest a Squire to start with as his towers are the strongest. The Squire's towers all do physical damage which is important because some enemies in this game are immune to elemental damage, not an issue for the Squire.
Putting your points into his tower life/damage I found were the most important things to do first, also occasionally putting points into his tower range and attack rate.
I suggest maxing out the Tower Life, Damage, and Attack Rate. Range can do without putting 70 points into it. I stopped at around 25.

You can skip playing on easy and jump right into medium, you will get better XP & Gear and the difficulty increase is not that large. Also be aware that having more players in your game increases the amount of monsters per wave.

You will want to spend some time leveling up your Hero and grinding for some decent gear before bothering with the hard & insane difficulty.

You can switch between characters at the Tavern or even during a level. Simply active the Defenders forge and select change hero. You can only do this during a level during the build phase.

Step 2 - Level up the Huntress! Since you can switch your hero during the game, the point of this is to have your Squire build your defenses during the build phase then switch out to the Huntress during the combat phase. She has alot of useful weapons that put out high Damage and DPS, piercing, splash damage, and even fire through walls.
She of course can level up much faster if you build towers with your high level Squire, switching to the Huntress and any kills your tower gets will gain xp for her.


Step 3- Challenges/Survival modes.
These can be done at any time, but you will need your hero leveled up to complete them.
Each challenge has a suggested hero level you should be before attempting them.
Survival is just like campaign, only the waves go much higher and the enemies get much harder. But with the Squire tower builder/Huntress damage dealer combo things will be much more simple.

Pure strategy mode is exactly like survival but has a bit less enemies per wave, and you can not use your hero to attack/repair or build during the combat phase.

Special thanks to Jarr3tt88 for the videos.

Not worthy of a 7/10 difficulty (imo) Unless you are playing solo, it just takes some dedication

Also the rooftop level (months since i played last) is best for solo farming xp by using a squire then switching to whatever class you are leveling.

Or if you are 2 or more the bonus level on insane is kinda win for exp.

Other then that nice to finally see a guide up, keep up the nice work

This isn't a 7/10 if you do co-op. IMO it's a very fun game.

You're welcome!
Thank you for the feedback (I am new to doing guides)


Also guys I lowered the difficulty rating as I was judging it from a solo perspective for the average player. Figured it would be tough to complete.
