Tips & Tricks to Cataclysm Difficulty
Focus on your defence
While on lesser difficulties, one could block attacks with just any weapon, on something as Quotation Mark Difficult Quiatoc Mark as cataclysm, one can only resort to shielded weapons to achieve the same effect. Dodging is highly inefficient, as it breaks your team’s phalanx formation. Selfishly leaving your teammates behind like that is sure to get you killed in this highly punishing, no-mistakes-allowed gamemode.
Why reds matter, unlike what some forum posters think
Here is a brain teaser: why would i want to play with a selfish player wasting everyone’s time on the Highest Difficulty who doesn’t even bother to have min-maxed stats with full read gear?
Having a full set of “Veteran” gear is essential to achieving consistency in high-pressure environments.
Team compositions & strategems
Having a dedicated revive speed&healshare character such as Zealot, your runs will stop failing to annoying gas-rattes and blyght-stormers.
The advantages of having Zealot in this role are obvious: The increased healing lets him get even more value out of healshare while revive speed combined with his passive “Iron Heart” lets him get essential revives off even in the face of danger.
I would highly advise your team both having a dedicated shielder, and the shielder being an Ironbreaker Dwarf. The reasons are so obvious for this that if you don’t get it by just hearing it, you never will.
Catclysm does not mess around. Maximum amount of specials in game is shot up to 60-70, which means you will need some form of ranged weaponry to succeed in cataclyms. This means that noobstomp careers like Grail Knight, Slayer and Coruscation Battle Wizard simply become redundant at the peak of difficulty. They simply do not offer enough to make up for their massive failings in the ranged department.

Take a very close look at your teammates’ frames. If they have a rare and incredibly skilled one, such as cata fortunes of war completion, you should always listen to them. Tell your teammates too so they all know who the leader is.
