    Hello,

    let me introduce myself, i played this game now for like 136 Hours i only play Grove i am actually at Rank 3 at Grove and my Rating is 1690 ( sorry for bad english ) now lets come to the guide ;)

    REALLY IMPORTANT:

    THIS IS ACTUALLY THE BEST GROVE BUILD !!

    just a few more tipps before u read the guide:

    Keep in mind this is a Guide u cant always follow a Guide to 100% depends on what happends ingame
    Watch the Picture on Wave 15 thats the RIGHT positioning!!

    After Wave 8 u have to manage the Worker on ur own when to get them normally i have like 8-11 worker until Wave 10-11

    Really important : never miss income always send during the battle phase until the last 2 seconds so u get the income u will need it exspecially in the first 5 Waves cause if u miss 1 income or u dont get sends from the enemys u wont have an Archer on Wave 4 and if they send something little u might leak a bit . but this shouldnt screw u or say this build is shit even if u leak 4 minons on wave 4 ur completely fine

    For upcoming patches : they will make honeyflower that her Aoe would stack so u actually could get more then 1 if its a decent buff and u still dont have magic dmg with this build or overall as grove except honeyflower so if they buff her really good and i tryed it out much times depends on how good it is we could make honeyflowers ( deathcaps) instead of Antler or just have 2 Antler 1 whitemane and 2 deathcaps in the front cause their also natural defense so they profite from daphnes debuff on the enemys.

    So u would have a lot piercing cause of the Ranger / daphne, impact from canopie and even magic from Honeyflower what would make it really balanced from the defense and attack . i love it.

    They said this buff for the Honeylfower will make Grove able to be better in Lategame :D






    Wave 1

    Build an Antler on the right side on the 6th ( pic is a bit to much up )
    Watch the Picture on Wave 15 thats the RIGHT positioning!!

    antler wave 1.png

    Get During the Battle Phase an Worker as soon u have 100 gold.


    Wave 2

    U dont do anything here :p

    Wave 3

    Place an Whileshroom below the Antler

    antler + whileshroom drunter.png

    During the Battle Phase u get a Worker ( 3th ) ( only build the worker if u did the maths and u get the archer for wave 4. if u cant then build the archer then get the worker druing fight phase from wave 4 )
    u need the archer.

    Wave 4

    Place a Archer below the Whileshroom

    antler whileshroom und ranger.png

    Wave 5

    Upgrade ur Ranger into a Daphne
    Get a Worker During the Battle phase

    daphne upgrade.png

    Wave 6

    Build an Archer below the Daphne

    ranger unter daphne.png

    Wave 7

    Upgrade ur Whileshroom into a Canopie ( if u cant add a second whileshroom on the left from her with 1 cube down )

    whileshroom upgrade into canpie.png

    Wave 8

    U get here 2 Workers ( 1 in battle and 1 in incoming phase )

    Wave 9

    Build an Antler with 1 cube down to the left from the first Antler ( watch picture from Wave 10 to know the positioning. ) ( if u can hold and hav the money get a worker )

    Wave 10

    U Should have now 2 Antler 1 Canopie 2 Daphnen and 3-5 Ranger ( keep in mind if u have 5 Ranger the boss will perma have 9 stacks on the piercing dmg % buff from ur Ranger

    ( if u can hold and hav the money get a worker during battle phase if u kill boss for 150g u should get a worker )

    wave 10.png

    Wave 11


    I Recommend 3-4 Daphnen a few Ranger and 2 Antler u already have ( watch picture from wave 13 to get the right positioining and how it should be )

    Wave 12

    U Build another Antler or u upgrade one of ur 2 Antler into a Whitemane ( watch picture from wave 13 to get the fight positioning and how it should be )


    Wave 13

    Add 1 Antler or the Whitemane ( what is left ) "picture"

    wave 13.png

    Wave 14

    U build 2 whileshrooms between the antler and the daphnes and upgrade one or both of them ( depends on money )

    Wave 15

    u should have 3 upgraded whileshrooms ( canopies )

    wave 15.png

    Wave 16 - 19


    Just Build 2 more Antler and upgrade a second antler into whitemane u should have 3 Antler and 2 whitemanes (1 antler 1 whitemane 1 antler 1 whitemane 1 antler in this order )

    U should have 3 antler 2 whitemanes in front. 5-6 ranger, 5-6 daphnen and then only canopies.
    Just spamm canopies if u know the game is going to wave 20

    wave 18.png

    Wave 20

    just spamm canpies and when u have something left whileshrooms or ranger / daphnen just to hold use every gold


    I hope i could help u and u guys can ask me anything u want i will gladly answer them.

    We are making a change to Honeyflower/Deathcap so that their spell damage stacks with itself (allowing you to get more than one of each), which will help with 19.

    For 20, I recommend massing Canopies. Maccabeus doesn't actually have splash damage - it's bounce damage, so it's not any more effective against flying fighters like Canopie.

    First off all, let me tell you that I'm not a grove specialist at all so I cant really judge on how this guide might be or might not be a succes. That being said,, i really think some of the unit positioning is kinda strange. Also the fact u dont built a daphne before lvl 12 doesnt add up. Daphne is pretty strong and usefull during some early waves pre 11.

    anyways i appreciate the work! GG

    You're right,, im judging your guide without actually experiencing it myself. Yet I think there are some slight improvements to make on this guide to make it even better ;).

    yeah i mean patches will come out from time to time so it will change, but the one thing i can say is i even watched what the top 3 grove player build and how they build. its actually the same way so it cant be that bad. i have much success how i do it so i wanted to share it with the community cause no actually grove guide exist. only mech from cornep and forsaken from my premate buddy zgeembo.

    I never said that it doesnt look gr8,, so get your facts straight. The only thing I did was simply giving my opinion and according the forum rules thats no violation. And in those same rules I cant find anything about "make your tactics/builds public if you think you can do better"...

    This one actually looks better mate! The only thing i'd change is that at some point I would throw a bananaheaven in there... but for the rest it looks good!

    i prefer to focus on canopie production over daphne production in the midgame, i also dont open with whitemane but i think this build is really solid

    i forgot in the guide that u can get a banana heaven for wave 16/17 cause its pierce on the same wave as the first Antler is on the left side, and yeah in the midgame u could actually go mass canopies if u know this game will go to wave 20 . but i dont know actually if mass canopies are better for 20 or just a few like 6-7 and more range dmg. but im really exciting for the honeyflower buff cause it really will help u in lategame as grove and u finally get magic dmg then, but thank u kruger :oops::oops::oops:

    i usually aim to have 3 canpopie on wave 14 and 4 and wave 15, then i spend my whole bank on them from 19 to 20.. its really goddamn hard to hold 20 as grove in general though, but i do need to add more ranged damage for sure..!
