Information on this page is PC specific.
Mythical Real Time Strategist is a PC exclusive Achievement that is unlocked upon completing the Original Campaign and three Quest for the Lost Eternia Shard Missions on Nightmare difficulty using only the Summoner's minions to damage enemies, except for the Final Wave. 


Only the Summoner's minions can damage the enemy; denying the use of damaging hero defenses, weapons and attacking pets. The final wave lifts this restriction, allowing non-minion damage. If successful, the player will earn the "Mission Real Time Strategist" award and will need it for all of the maps illustrated below.

Original Campaign Missions The Deeper Well, Foundries and Forges, Magus Quarters, Alchemical Laboratory, Servants Quarters, Castle Armory, Hall of Court, The Throne Room, Royal Gardens, The Ramparts, Endless Spires, The Summit
DLC Missions Glitterhelm Caverns, City in the Cliffs
The Lost Eternia Shard Maps Mistymire Forest, Moraggo Desert Town, Aquanos


Defenses that are safe to use are illustrated in the table below.

Apprentice/Adept Magic Blockade
Huntress/Ranger Darkness Trap, Gas Trap
Jester None
Monk/Initiate Enrage Aura, Ensnare Aura, Healing Aura, Strength Drain Aura
Series EV Physical Beam, Tower Buff Beam
Squire/Countess Spike Blockade (placed backwards)
  • Although any hero can be used during the combat phase, switching to another results in their defenses base damage being reduced by 25%; which can make this achievement harder for lower geared Summoners.
