I am a little stuck and in need of some input by experienced players.
Ok, so here is the deal: I am on my third continent. It was on Tier 3 when CP have been patched away, leaving me in the lucky situation of having the continent back to Tier 1 with some Tier 4 spells already in my inventory.
I tried to approach my first lieutenant which happened to be a dreaded green amoeba. Dreaded because I favor "Launch Rock" and "Launch Meteor" both of which are useless against this foe - the projectiles heal the small green amoebas who in turn heal the boss even before reaching it making it impossible to beat him. And since it is a lieutenant it has an insane amount of health.
My other Tier 4 spells are Fireball and Energy Orb - no piercing damage here and I don't seem to have the time to shoot the small ones one by one. After a short while I am swarmed and near death.
Are there any options here? Of course I could try to go for other lieutenants first, but then I lose my slight edge when I save this one for last - it will be Tier 5 as all my spells by then.
Is it worth to invest in another piercing spell like Ice Block or Tidal Wave even though I will get these "only" to Tier 2? Am I missing something in the way of enchants? I use triple jump, damage reduction and have all kinds of element enhancements at my disposal to boost for example the fireball spell or whatever.
So, any hints? I don't want to crank down the difficulty, this would feel like cheating, I am rather hoping for a "legitimate" way out of this situation...
Thanks in advance and regards,
