The OFFICIAL Church of Seed
Welcome brothers and sisters. This place is our temple, our sanctuary, our garden of Alder. This is a safe zone for us to discuss wonderful strategies and builds for our idol, for we must find the best way to lead His Plantiness not only onward to victory, but also unto the hearts and souls of our enemies. From Goliath rushes to Tree of Life abundance, all builds are welcome. Appreciation for all that is Seed is also welcome. For instance, the Seedbot is objectively the cutest unit in the game.
In the name of Mama Earth and Plant Dad, st-amen.
Here's a build to get us started
Garden of Sekhmet
Goal: Tree of Life + Needleferns dominate your battles. Heal your allies, heal yourself, shoot baddies from far away pew pew.
Initial: upgrade to T2 immediately, 2 Seedbots, expand to center Green with remaining 10 gems
next 150g: Seedbot
- special - if you're in top and have a ranged ally, take the red camp from your first expansion to start getting gems
next 10 gems: expand somewhere else for soup
- special - if you're in top and have a ranged ally, take the gem camp as well from this expo
next 200 scrap: upgrade Merc building to start getting Shielders (read tooltip to get right one)
next 225g: Grove Tender
- special - if you can, try to take the double gem expansion and place an Ion Cannon (built from Engineer) at it for defense
- spend all gems from here out on Shielders
next 400 scrap: healing charm
next 400 scrap after that: Rabbit's Foot speed charm
next 150g: Replenishing Roots (aka Tree of Life upgrade)
next 225g: Grove Tender #2
- special - if you're almost level 6, next 150g on Lengthy Sowing (aka Plant Sapling Range upgrade)
next 225g: Grove Tender #3
rest of gold is dumped into Seedbots, and gems into Shielders.
Use Needlefern as a very powerful zoning tool, and snare with Alder's Living Vines when the opponent gets too arrogant. Drop Tree of Life to gain an advantage in combat (remember that multiple Trees of Life don't stack!). After hitting level 6, always remember to save at least 1 sapling to place a well-positioned Deeproot Terror. NEVER use all of your saplings in an engagement if you have combat tricks (ie: Tree of Life/Deeproot Terror at vital moments). Remember to position your Needleferns in safe spots - they have long range and do toooons of damage if they don't get targeted down. Use Shielders to protect your Needleferns/Tree of Life/Deeproot Terror.
