2 Ways to Clear Annihilation 2 – Lungmen Outskirts

3078

First Method – Cliffheart as Core

A simpler and newbie-friendly method to finish Lungmen Outskirts, as it needs minimal deployment shifting. However, it has clear limitation of requiring players to have Cliffheart and Rope at the same time. Most characters are still replaceable though.

Core Members – Recommend E1 lv20 or above

  • Cliffheart – Core of the formation. Make sure her S2 is at skill lv4. She has to be higher level if Perfumer is not used.
  • Rope – Base level can be lv1, with skill lv4.
  • Shaw/FEater – Shaw will need her skill to be lv4 while FEater is fine with skill lv1.
  • 2 Medics – Either kind will work. Perfumer is recommended for its passive healing, and Silence for her flexible drones.
  • 2 Defenders – Any is fine. Cuora on her S2 highly recommended.
  • 1 Vanguard – Any Block 2. Fang needs to be higher level. Siege S2 or Texas S2 will be nice for crowd control. We have Texas on S1 instead to act as a “normal” regen Vanguard.
  • 1 Sniper (Exusiai) – Any. Solo for “focus sniping” or AoE for crowd control. Choose your weapon.
  • 1 Solo Caster (Amiya) – This can be replaced by an AoE Sniper too.
  • 1 AoE Caster (Skyfire) – Lava or anything better. The higher the level the better for crowd control.
  • 1 GuardMelantha, or anyone better.

Important Points

Early Deployment Sequence
Top part should go from right to left (Amiya -> Silence -> Skyfire). Depends how fast you kill, deploy Shaw before Cuora if possible. Else, shift Shaw’s deployment into between Amiya and Silence. Guard wise should mostly face up, but AoE ones like Lappland and SilverAsh should face left instead.

157/400 – Sort of DPS Check. Use skill to get over fast.
210/400 – Appearance of Wraith (notice the shiny goggles). Shaw is already there to deal with them.
260/400 – Enemy rush. AoE them down as soon as the cloaking snipers are revealed.
270/400 – Appearance of White Axe Giant. Exchange Sniper with Perfumer.
297/400 – Appearance of Katana crowd. Exchange Shaw with Sniper. Deploy Cliffheart. Use her skill to pull Yellow Katana down (by right, you have time for 2 times).
302/400 – Appearance of trio Molotov. Remove Guard and deploy Shaw to divert the threat from Cliffheart.
310/400 – Appearance of Plane. 3 Yellow Katana should spawn below Red Katana. Cliffheart should only skill the first, and keep the next charge until Red Katana moves to pull it down.
327/400 – 5 Yellow Katana should come out from the left, and then a Red Katana. Cliffheart can skill the first three Yellow ones, and keep her charge for Red Katana. Once Red Katana is down, remove Cliffheart and Shaw. Remember to activate skills on the top part if the crowd gets more. Also, exchange Vanguard with another Defender.
350/400 – Appearance of Red Mages. Make sure both Cliffheart and Shaw finished cool down. Deploy Cliffheart and then Shaw after the White Mage hit Perfumer. Skill Cliffheart until 2 Red Mages are left on top, then remove Cliffheart.
380/400 – Start using skill during the rush but not all at once. Deploy Melantha whenever necessary to help with damage.
394/400 – Red Mages coming from top. Remove Sniper or just let it fight until death. Final push, so just skill and keep alive.

Second Method – Slightly Tedious

This method is meant more to players who have limited operators within their account. All characters are replaceable so long it is within their class archetype. The only downside is probably the tedious deployment shifting required.

Core Members – Recommend E1 lv20 or above

Purple font = Units used in video.

  • Shaw/FEater – Shaw will need her skill to be lv4 while FEater is fine with skill lv1.
  • Rope/Cliffheart – Base level can be lv1. Both require skill lv4.
  • 3 Medics – Solo or AoE will work fine. We have Perfumer, Silence and Hibiscus.
  • 2 SnipersKroos part can be replaced by Meteorite or Shirayuki. Exusiai wise, any will do.
  • 2 DefendersCuora on her S2 highly recommended. Gummy can be replaced by anyone.
  • 1 Vanguard (Courier) – Any Block 2 will do. Fang is ok, though she will need to be higher level to be stable. Siege can work but make sure she is on S1 (S2 will require workaround on the placement).
  • 1 AoE Caster (Skyfire) – Lava or anything better. The higher the level the better for crowd control.
  • 1 GuardMelantha, or anyone better.

Important Points

Early Deployment Sequence
Top wise, make sure to put Shaw, Kroos and Skyfire before Melantha. Bottom wise, your sequence should be Exusiai -> Perfumer -> Silence. This will allow damage to be rotated later on when Molotov enemies are here.

154/400 – Sort of DPS check, use AoE to get through this.
210/400 – Appearance of Wraith (enemy with shiny goggles). Shaw will deal with this.
260/400 – Enemy rush. AoE them down as soon as the cloaking snipers are revealed.
270/400 – Appearance of White Axe Giant. Prepare to exchange Shaw to another Medic.
297/400 – Time to retrieve Cliffheart. Also appearance of Katana crowd, use Exusiai to skill them down as much as you can.
313/400 – Appearance of trio Molotov. Deploy Cliffheart whenever they passed/died. Red Katana should start moving, and be dragged into the hole by her. Remove Cliffheart immediately.
327/400 – Prepare for the Yellow Katana to appear at the bottom right. When it walk into the tile right beside the hole, deploy Shaw to kick it down and remove her. Meanwhile, activate skills on the upper part to down the enemies.
345/400 – Exchange Vanguard with another Defender. When Red Katana begins attacking Cuora, activate her shield. Use Medic and Sniper skill if necessary.
350/400 – Appearance of Red Mages. Remove the right Medic. Deploy Cliffheart and then Shaw, just so one will pull Red Mage to the trap and have the other kick it into the hole. Remove Cliffheart once one/two Red Mages are down (E0 for one, E1 for two). Activate Exusiai skill to sweep the remaining Red Mages. Remove Exusiai once only 2 Red Mages on top remain.
370/400 – A Red Mage should start moving. Activate skills to stay alive and do deploy the right Medic if cool down is finished (We forgot to do that in video lol). Remember to keep an eye on Cliffheart’s cooldown. Deploy her as as soon as you can.
375/400 – Appearance of Yellow Katana. Cliffheart should be out by now to pull it down.
383/400 – Mage and Katana Rush. Keep alive as much as you can. Remove Shaw and deploy Exusiai to gun them down.
392/400 – Final push. Skill and keep alive.
