A guide for Mercenary mode from Private to General using all of the DLC.
 
 
Witch Hunter, Thief, and Ranger need to be Level 20 for use here.
 
 
Very straight forward strategy to get to General by NG6.
 
 

Requirements

Thief to 20
 
Witch Hunter to 20
 
Ranger to 20
 
 
Drinks: Lady’s Blessing, Smelly Old Man, Mind Control, Mellow Mist or Crazy Eye, Enchanted Slammer, Incendiary Demise, Miner’s Delight, A Fool’s Errand
 
 
Blueprints to unlock and *attune early: Gladiator’s Net, Blackjack, Judgement, Bloodthirst Ring
 
 
 

Class

Witch Hunter
 

  • Constant fire rate and movement by default
  • Twinned Arrow with the burst fire is pretty sick when you can run full speed
  • Dope hat

 
 
 

Actives

Grapple Hook 100% evasion while flying in the air, you can hook enemies, amazing to dodge projectiles from regular enemies AND TRAPS
 
 
Witch Pyre Stationary, damage dealing, healthy target for your enemies so you can easily mow down crowds
 
 
First Aid this ability isn’t really about the healing, though it helps early, the fact it REMOVES ALL DEBUFFS is why you keep this
 
 
 

Passives

Twinned Arrow because even with low luck, this helps auto target nearby enemies with amazing crowd clear
 
 
Sidestep because the passive dodge every 5 seconds will save you a lot of heartache
 
 
Slice and Dice because attack speed is essential when using Judgement
 
 
 

Items

* = attune ASAP
 
 
Arena, Forasaken Tower NG0, Forsaken Tower NG1
 
-Gladiator’s Net*
 
-Blackjack*
 
-KEYS Barring Arena, I buy as many as I can up to 13 each
 
 
Pyramid of Prophecy NG2, Moon Temple NG3, Pyramid of Prophecy NG4
 
-Judgement* the damage to bosses is critical to success
 
-Bloothirst Ring* can be swapped with Dwarven Pickaxe* if you’re comfortable
 
-Dwarven Pickaxe* makes your next runs easier with all the ore you get
 
-KEYS
 
 
Forsaken Tower NG5
 
-Judgement*
 
-Bloothirst Ring*
 
-KEYS
 
 
 

Order of Completion

Arena to Rank 2 for extra gold to start tower, DON’T waste money on keys before going into Arena
 
 
Forsaken Tower NG0
 
 
Forsaken Tower NG1
 
 
Arena to Rank 4 DONT SPEND ALL YOUR GOLD before the arena, rank up in the arena to get more upgrades available first
 
 
Pyramid of Prophecy NG2 This will be difficult, hope you get Dwarven Pickaxe drop
 
 
Moon Temple NG3 earns Moon Shield
 
 
Pyramid of Prophecy NG4 Dwarven pick is too good here, you earn Colonel compeleting this run
 
 
Forsaken Tower NG5 you earn General compeleting this run
 
 
Runs from here on you should have an idea or preference for your build
 
 
 

The Priest

Path of the Defender because we want to live!
 
 
Blessing of Light because we are attack based, this will help us gain more life through more damage
 
 
Symbol of Essence because we want to live!
 
 
Divine Strike because this resets fastest, however you can pick other options and be fine
 
 
 

Drinks

Switching between option 1 and 2 when you feel comfortable
 
 
Option 1 Safer
 

  • Smelly Old Man
  • Lady’s Blessing
  • Mind Control makes traps much easier
  • Crazy Eye or Mellow Mist
  • Enchanted Slammer or Incendiary Demise

 
Option 2 Riskier but gives more ore/gold
 

  • Smelly Old Man
  • Mind Control or Mellow Mist or Crazy Eye
  • Enchanted Slammer or Incendiary Demise
  • Miner’s Delight
  • A Fool’s Errand

 
 
 

Blood Rites

Don’t take too many or you can start getting one shot easily with low health, however these are ideal
 
 
Immortal
 
 
Fey
 
 
 

Arena Upgrades

Focus on these first
 
 
Attack
 
 
Armor
 
 
Resistance
 
 
 

Playstyle

Don’t ever stop moving
 
 
Continuously Shoot into crowds
 
 
Spam first aid under duress or when hit with a de-buff
 
 
Use grapple to dodge projectiles and traps combined with Mind Control to avoid confusion
 
 
That’s it, GLHF!
