Introduction

The Wraiths have intensified their attacks! Aethia needs your help to coordinate the attack. It is not possible for her to be everywhere at once. Using her Enchanted Map, you'll be able to coordinate the attacks and help The Resistance.

This plot step requires daily activity to unlock all achievements. Please view the achievements listed below so you don't miss out on anything. Days change over at noon NST.

Playing the Game

This step has a similar concept to Battleship, except the pieces and types of attacks, are shown to you. All you need to do is copy them on our side of the board. Begin by visiting Headquarters and click on the map table to the right of Kaia to get to Fiendish Formations.

Upon Arrival at Fiendish Formations, you will be allowed to play the game by clicking on the play button. Then you'll be taken to a screen to select the attack you wish to coordinate. The attacks will be numbered and any unavailable attacks will have a grey background and a lock pictured.

Once you select the attack you wish to complete, you'll be taken to the game screen. At the top left, you will see a Bonus Timer and it will immediately begin counting down. On the top right, it will tell you what day it is and what battle you're in. At the bottom, there is a pause button that will give you a menu with a list of options. Those options are Resume, Restart, Instructions, and Main Menu. Your board will be divided in half and looks much like a chess or checkers board. The wraiths will have their formations on the purple side. It is your job to match their formations with the resistance forces.

To place your pieces, match the position from the purple board to your green board and click on the square. Once all pieces for that battle have been placed, you will move on to the next battle until all the battles for that day are completed. A correctly completed board will turn green and begin to fade into the next battle. If you make a mistake, continue clicking on the piece you wish to change and it will disappear after cycling through all possible pieces. Boards are generated differently each time. A completed board will look like:

In later battles, different icons representing the enemy forces and the resistance forces will be used. In addition, as you progress through the battles the wraiths will intensify their attack and displace your soldiers. You will need to hurry to defeat them all. As you play throughout the battles, your bonus timer will continue to increase.

The Battles

Day 1

This battle has 10 boards to complete. All 10 battles only involve the Infantry soldier. Place your pieces in the correct location to match the wraiths throughout all 10 battles. If you do not reach the score of 1000, try again until you do.

Day 2

This battle has 10 boards to complete. Coordinating these attacks are slightly more difficult than the previous day, as there are more pieces to place. These battles are using Infantry, Cavalry and Artillery. For the achievement, your goal is to get a score of 1450. You can continue trying until you get the score.

Day 3

This battle has 10 boards to complete. Today's attacks are slightly more complicated than the previous days have been. The Wraith Assassin token makes an appearance. This token will appear on your side with a 5-second timer. Once that timer goes off, it will remove one of your pieces. You will have to replace that piece and finish the board. Try to move quick so less of your pieces are taken out. This battle you only need to worry about placing the Infantry and Cavalry classes. For the achievement, your goal is to get a score of 2000.

Day 4

This battle is much like the previous ones, except a bit more challenging. The Wraith Assassin is trying to take out your troops, so you need to be quick. In addition, the Decoy Soldiers are out to distract you. Ignore the decoys and mirror your board to the wraiths' as quick as you can. You may find it helpful to restart a battle, not the day if you're stuck. The achievement goal for today is to get a score of 2800. Another achievement will now be unlocked if you have all gold checkmarks on the first 4 battles, indicating you completed them on release day.

Day 5

Today's set of battles are significantly harder than previous ones. You need to move faster and pay close attention to your board. The Wraith Assassin will be gobbling up your pieces and the Decoy Soldier will try to trick you. It is easier to replace a piece that has just been removed before continuing on. One strategy is to start with a row at the top, bottom, left or right, depending on your board and what is most comfortable. With your chosen starting point, begin filling in your board. It may be helpful to use the restart button if you get stuck or need a different layout. Placing a piece on a spot occupied by a Decoy Soldier will remove 10 points from your score. For the achievement, your goal is to get a score of 3500.

Day 6

More challenging battles have been planned for today. Once again the Wraith Assassin is displacing your soldiers. You will need to pay careful attention to your board and your pieces to catch the ones that have been removed. As with previous days, work quickly! The Decoy Soldiers are in greater numbers today, so watch their placement. Making a mistake and placing a piece on a space occupied by the Decoy Soldier will remove 10 points from your score. One strategy is to start with a row at the top, bottom, left or right, depending on your board and what is most comfortable. With your chosen starting point, begin filling in your board. It may be helpful to use the restart button if you get stuck or need a different layout. Obtaining a score of 4300 will unlock the achievement for today.

Day 7

The battles being coordinated today are very similar in difficulty as yesterdays. Today may take a bit more time and patience to get through though. You will need to pay careful attention to your board and your pieces to catch the ones that have been removed and to avoid placing one on a decoy spot. As with previous days, work quickly! One strategy is to start with a row at the top, bottom, left or right, depending on your board and what is most comfortable. With your chosen starting point, begin filling in your board. It may be helpful to use the restart button if you get stuck or need a different layout. Obtaining a score of 5500 will unlock the achievement for today.

Day 8

This is the last day of battles to coordinate. You will find all pieces present on these boards. They will also be more pieces to place on each board. Thankfully, there is only one Wraith Assassin to deal. The Wraith Assassin is faster today, so it is crucial you pay attention and replace what piece he took away. Anticipate that one is about to be removed before it is removed. After replacing the piece, return to placing your remaining pieces. One strategy is to start with a row at the top, bottom, left or right, depending on your board and what is most comfortable. With your chosen starting point, begin filling in your board. It may be helpful to use the restart button if you get stuck or need a different layout. The final achievement score is 6500.
