With only browns at your disposal and an overlord that takes very few hits and does very little damage, this difficulty is going to seem almost impossible when you first start out. Getting to and defeating Melvin Underbelly is going to be the hardest part of the game. If you do this you should have no problem with the rest.

After melvin is dead will now have the reds which make the game much more manageable. With reds and blues you can lead enemies. That is have them throw a bunch of fire and move them back. Keep doing this till the enemy is dead. If you aren't quick enough the blues will revive lost minions. I normally ran with 15 reds, 10 browns, and 5 blues.

The key to this difficulty is not bothering with pointless objectives and only do things that benefit you. You aren't going to want to bother with enemies that will not give you life force like zombies. Simply run past them and only kill them if you have to. Also you aren't going to want to fight things where you will lose more minions fighting it then you will gain from killing it.

There's a few mission you wont want to bother with either. For example i didn't get the durium smelter and i did not upgrade my steel armor. I just waited until i got the arcanium smelter. I also did not plunder the gold mine or go for gold bags that would have cost minions their lives. Even skipping these things I had more than enough gold to decorate my tower.

As for your arcanium set, i suggest you upgrade its physical defense and its health regain ability. Don't bother with adding to its extra health and mana. I also upgraded the helmet but in hindsight sacrificing 2000 minions to have only 15 more in your horde isn't really worth it. Choose which ever weapon you want. I stuck with the axe and used mostly green minions on it because it was all i really had at the time.

Farming: Before you fight Kahn you are going to want to get your minion count up. The easiest way to do this is to fight beetles in the arena. There are 4 different type of beetles, the battler beetles being the strongest. For all the beetles have all reds except for 5. Make them blues. Set a guard marker and lure 3-4 beetles close to them but stay in front and fight them. You will get 75 life force each wave. Of coarse the more minions you are able to have in your horde and the stronger your armor is the easier farming will become. I went into the Kahn battle with 500 browns, 300 reds and greens and 200 blues. You WILL NOT be able to farm again after beating Kahn and Kahn will kill many more minions than the final boss.

Suprisingly the final boss is very easy. His health seems to go down as fast as it did on normal. I was worried I wouldn't have enough minions left over after my battle with Kahn but I actually lost very few against the wizard.

Final tip: If you have lost a bunch of minions and you feel you could do a lot better in a certain area purposely get killed and choose to restart. I did this every time something stupid happened like all my minions died by a single bomb. That's what I like to call unacceptable losses. The only time i didn't care about how many minions died was during boss fights.

Good luck
