Introduction

 
Hello, This is a guide for Astronarch, I just beat the game will all the achievements and Max leveled all characters, I kept a doc going for my notes (When I come back in future patches), thought I would post it here as some might find it useful. This is all my opinion only. 
 
Wrote for version: 1.5.3 
 
 

General

 
Role/Orbs/Build/Items/Blessings/Nodes are listed in order of how good they are (Best first) 
 
Party Composition: Any works, game is beatable on Corruption 20 (Including Omen of Loss) with random heros, recommend a Healer and Tank by act 2. 
 
Blessings: The Magician (MP Costs) Blessing unless healer is Bloodmage then Temperance (HP), If I need ancient items then Wheel of Fortune, The Chariot (monsters cannot be found in events), King of Wands (Merchant price reduction), Anything else 
 
Events: Act 1 get upgraded items and take debuff if not before elite/boss fight, Act 2 fight for Prized Scimitar and/or Regalia, Act 3 interstellar seller sacrifice vitality. 
 
Lanes: Act 1 I take bottom lane, Act 2 + 3 I take mid lane 
 
Elites: I take all elites, if I don’t kill at least 2 elites in Act 1, I restart

Conclusion

 
Again items + orbs I left out I didn’t find were good enough to pick if I had a choice (my opinion)
