This is by no means the only way to do this, but I have found it is at least one of the easiest and quickest. First off, you will need a Squire spec'ed out for towers. I would say level 70 is best, but around 50 will do just fine, maybe even less. Make sure you have a decent amount into Tower Health and Tower Damage, as well as a fair amount into Attack Rate. Attack Range is not quite as important.

Okay, you are going to be using the first level, entitled "The Deeper Well." You can start on whatever wave you want, I chose to use the highest possible which is Wave 8, but to be safe you may want to choose Wave 4 or 5. Play on Medium difficulty. Grab the chests and build a Bumper on each staircase leading up to the crystal. You want the stairs closest to the Crystal. Put each one on the bottom of the stairs. Also build Bumpers on the higher part to the left and right respectively of each one, blocking off those paths. Now you can start this wave. Kill everything you can with your sword and collect mana, nothing should get through. After the wave ends it's time to create the final build, you should have enough mana now.

At the top of each stair set, behind the Bumpers, put 2 Bowling Ball Turrets, facing down the stairs. Now sell the Bumpers on the stairs. Behind the other Bumpers, but two Harpoon Turrets, facing the doors at the top. And that's it. Just stand near the Crystal in case a random Ninja gets through, otherwise just keep up on upgrades and the repairs (you won't need much) and once you beat Wave 14 you should unlock your achievement, as well as a nice pet!

And in case anyone is wondering, it will probably take no more than an hour to complete this, and the final enemy count on wave 14 is just over 4000. If you have a Huntress, you can use her to shoot and move things a bit faster, just be sure to repair when necessary. You will probably only need to repair the Bumpers.

EDIT: If you still need the accomplishment, this method will work for getting to Wave 20 on Medium as well. You will probably have to repair a few times and I would still guard the crystal in case a random Ninja jumps over the towers. It will take around 3 hours for Wave 20.

Happy Dungeon Defending!
