Hi all :). I have been stuck on the mission "Poison'd Well". I have done the mission with two Battleships and a cruiser, a Battleship and 3 cruisers....4 cruisers. Nada...I can't beat it...I can't get the last starbase in time. Am I missing something?? Yes ..I do take out all enemy ships prior, so i just have to take out the bases. Am I supposed to also take out the little virus carrying ships, to keep the number down? When on last base, it always is already at 1800 of the virus. Any help would be appreciated. PhnixPhyre

I always split my forces into two groups for this mission, after I destroy the first one. Usually a Yorktown/Strider, and NX/Poseidon. I try to take a more diverse fleet, rather than just cruisers (I find the NX kinda lacking) or battleships. Plus this way, you can save up for better next generation ships.

I'd advise that you work your way from somewhere in the middle between the stations and the starbase. Take out the biogenic transports, and work your way to the stations. As soon as you take out a station and it's transports, head to the next one. Keep in mind that it does not take much to destroy a transport, even the Strider has absolutely no problem dispatching them.

The whole point of this part of the mission is to prevent the biogenic transports from docking with the starbase.

And also, if you don't already, pause often. And pause a lot. And often. Lol, pausing the game is your friend in Legacy. Don't forget you can still issue orders while the game is paused.

I usually left 2 ships near the main base they are trying to get to so that thos ships attack the transports and use the others for attacking the starbases, if your ships get damaged attacking the starbase start reapairing and waarp back to the other 2 and destroy transports til your ships get fully repaired and then go to the next star base.

I've been thinking: some people i've spoken to seem to have a problem completing the SP missions in Legacy. I have an idea: I could create video tutorials for each mission. I've already made one for Era 1, Mission 2, and my friend Alex said it really helped. The cideo tutorial would basically be a Fraps video of me completing the mission.

So, good idea? quote.gif

You only really need a video tutorial for the asteroid mission.
