    Survive 5 minutes when the tower is almost complete.

    Depending on your skill in tower-defence style games, this achievement is actually quite easy. The problem, is determining what "Almost Complete" means by the games standard.

    Load up the first tower on easy difficulty in Survivor. Pick your 2 elements you are the best with, personally I always used Earth and Wind, just make sure you can handle a large amount of humans with whatever technique you use!

    Now you are ment to let the humans build the tower all the way to the top. There is a little temple that they build on top and from the point that they plant the foundations for the temple, they only need 3 more humans to win! Let them plant the first bit into the temple (It will have 4 little pillars) then from here, simply hold off for 5 minutes! I suggest going for this after finishing the Campaign, or atleast after a bit of experience, as that way you'll know how to best use your skills (Ie, not get run over by cursed jars and priests), and know to watch for their construction building that spawns them half-way (Which should always be quickly dealt with).

    Just a note for wasting a little bit of time;
    When playing Survivor, there are boat waves like in the Campaign (Once you get that far). When a boat wave is up next, the humans stop spawning. Once you have eliminated the final one, the "Press cn_LB" option comes up. Try to pick up on the humans not spawning, as that way, you can let the last one take the minute journey all the way up before you cruelly end his hopeless life. I then let the option to press cn_LB wait 5 seconds before I pressed it (As hey, 5 seconds could be the difference between winning and loosing if you get overrun!). This will grant you a bit of extra time to breath.

    The achievement pops the instant you hit the 5 minute mark :) Thank Zetenge for finding the best point for stopping the construction!

    DRMRD31Use the meteor shower to destroy as much of the top of the tower as possible once they have built up to the third piece of the temple to buy yourself plenty of extra time. Once the third piece is in place the 5 minute timer starts and keeps counting even though the temple portion will be destroyed. Just got the achievement easily this way.

    I just got this on my first play (I started on survival). Thanks for pointing out the moment the timer starts running! I let a few ones go to the top until I saw the temple base, then I smashed parts of the top in with a fireball storm.

    With this method you can win the achievement while in the campaign, put on level XII play normally until the last wave, in the last wave kill all the workers, but leave one Construction Tower alive, just 5-6 workers will get out there each time, kill them and wait the next ones, hold for 5 minutes and the achievement its yours, the tower is almost complete after the workers who dont come from the tower go up 3 stairs and begin to build a small room on the last floor, dont let them finish the room or it will be game over.
