Unholy Grave and Pickaxe, which is better?

Post by mysticdude42 on Tue Dec 29, 2009 6:43 pm

It has come to me in of my experience in playing as a vampire would piss me off if there was no feeder( eventually there was) so now my target was locked on 2 very advanced players, these were the wall they built: Tank Wall, Divine Wall, Tree Wall, Tiny Wall and Gold Wall, and of course 2x lvl 3 WoH and 2x lvl 2 WoH(Wall of Health)
(they were both friends so thats why they build the same walls) i was only lvl 62 that time, and the game timer was 00:23:46 i was browsing through the vampire's shop for a strategy so I had only 2 choices, a pickaxe or an unholy grave well normally advanced human hosts would ban pickaxe and he didint so i resolved on using unholy grave FIRST, I reckon unholy grave is better than pickaxes coz,
Unholy Grave: get 3 - 5 of these and it'd be easy to destroy gold mines to block off edges and sides, i dunno if it will work on other buildings like diamond mine so after that i used SoD to blink in and got fed greatly.
Pickaxe: Now is time for the other player his wall/edge/ was blocked by both diamond mines and gold mines so i tried using pickaxe but they only destroyed 1-4 gold mines<<<(i think it was a bug coz i saw +120 +120 +120 +120)but the problem was he stacked it so i purchased YET another unholy grave and it destroyed diamond mines and gold mines i didnt even knew i could destroy diamond mines with unholy grave (WOW SPLENDID)
the cons of unholy grave:when u buy the ingredients you need 2 massive graves but needs a cd of 30 sec for 1 massive grave spawn and i had to wait for ( 1 unholy grave = 5 massive grave + 450 gold for recipe = unholy grave )30 sec x 5 x 3 + cd of unholy grave recipe = ? 10 minutes (estimated)
the cons of a pickaxe: i dont think there are any coz every item is perfect in its way except for cd's or some PRO items

Well, you have to be careful.

I build walls of health throughout my base. These heal gms too.
And if the GMS are a high level, their regen is too high to do anything.
This can easily be canceled too with building life upgrade at Research center. Adding more health and armor. Since ALL armor has some sort of effect on magic, just a much smaller one, it will effect the walls enough so that you can just kill them or build more of the health walls.

Pickaxe is the only surefire way to kill 3 walls.


And to speed up holy grave process:

Start at the beginning of the game getting graves in your research center. Then upgrade later into 2 different graves, one for lich and one for vamp.
Graves stack, so you can do more damage faster, crushing their defenses.

Both have its own purpose, the problem with pickaxe would be crushing some goldmines, and it would be useless if the player stacked it.... and for unholy grave, it needs a freaking long time to build it and its very easy to be crush, just build an end game oracle at mid bottom of your base with upgrades of full range, keep revealing or put some wards round ur base, viola unholy grave is wasted

Eh, this is why you use it before 6:32 seconds (fastest command center ever). Then the game is easy. Afterwards, unholy graving is useless.

Personally, I believe in the simplicity of kitty claws and v3x (It was put in for a reason lol). Just try that for a while.

I believe the Fastest CC ever would be dgs012's time if not mistaken it would be 6.02, at my country would be 6.17. And also the time that mysticdude had mention would be higher than 6.30

Ah, well... not to many people can even do 7 mins.. sorry for saying 6.32 is fastest XD (I swear that is what I thought... I am stuck at 6:45 to 7 o.0... 6.02 o.0!?)

But as long as you get them by 7 mins you should be fine (unless playing our clan shamans or some one else that is good.

Well, if dgs012 is in your game, just quit as vampy, because that is beyond reasonable.

well, to be as quick as him, you have to sacrifice somethings, as in no Heros for starters, upgrade lesser worker motivation. So, once you have da cash, figure a ways to crush him early game

Still, 6 mins is scary fast. And why would you have to sacrifice work motivation >.< my record of 6.35 was no different, I was just more hotkey savvy at the time XD

sacrificing some upgrades is to save more lumber for the mines, it doesn't seem much but me and juan worked our way from 7minute CC till 6.30 from there

If you have sphere and one of the player's goldmines are less than 4 per 1 space, then you can use Pickaxe and sphere into the base.

Unholy Grave is a rather gay item for walls and goldmines (If player is stupid enough not to attack the grave).

sometime the player will choose the wolf size of vamp and step on the unholy grave and make the grave hardly hit by comet, slayer etc.
