Hey, this is Iido, made a different account.
It wasn't The Adhara Exodus that gave me so much trouble on my first run. It was the act 8 mission, "Enterprise in Danger". Guess I got 'em confused since they are kinda similar haha.
Really, it's not hard until near the end, when the Moloch, Ravana, and tons of bombers all start swarming you at once. That's when its hull just plummets and I usually lose, which is infuriating after spending like 10+ mins getting that far. XD To be fair though it IS a late game mission, so I can understand the increase in challenge, but yeah, that part's really tough for me lol. I'm just not sure if I should be focusing on the Moloch and Ravana as soon as they appear, or the bombers...but I think the bombers are doing the biggest damage. I have a bit of time before the Ravana gets in range anyway, right?
Up until then I can do pretty well by just using Widowmaker missiles to down incoming bomber wings, constantly resupplying myself with the support ship.
EDIT: Past that mission again. After a couple more attempts, it...suddenly went really well. I took out the Moloch's beams ASAP, but the bomber raids seemed less...intense than the previous few attempts. I guess I had destroyed more than I realized prior to the Moloch warping in. XD
Also just got past The Hornet's Nest again, another mission that gave me a lot of trouble. All of this on Medium, still. I guess I'm getting a lot better than I was before
