I've only seen one and I just avoided it.  Didn't seem worth the trouble.  Let us know if taking down an epic has any benefits in the later stages of the game!

Well, it unlocks an achievement - thats not a spoiler as you can find that out by reading the achievements page xD

How did you manage it? Did your allies help you out or did you solo it? xD

Because I tried, and I have no allies, and he basically 1 shot me.

There was an epic creature attacking my city during civ phase, unfortunatley I couldnt seem to attack him with any vehicles, and he repeatedly one shotted my turrets. He just kinda repeatedly kicked the town hall, but not much else happened. In the end I hit the city with that really expensive bomb, then placed loads of turrets...

I almost killed one myself, but since I'm a carnivore I had to stop and kill other things to get food. So he got away and I couldn't find him again. xD

I only took out those epics or giants in the civ stage. Just kept blasting them with some of my tie fighters.

Yes, I have Star Wars themed vehicles. >:(

Sounds cool, I'm still rocking a Geforce 4200 in 2008 so I dont think my computer could handle it :P

Haven't destroyed an epic in creature stage, glad to see that someone else is absolutely loving the game though!

#30 Posted by Kamikirasan (1 posts) -

Taking down an epic. I just started early today and did it with ease.  First one i just made em chase me till i found another epic as they do some times attack each other.  I dont count that though.  The second one i got the achevment from by calling in allies while at an allied base and useing my own creatures plus one 250.  he was just screaming and refused to attack or take flight. the third took awhile because i did solo.  my next victom is going to take even longer as im going to simply follow him untill he dies of his own accord. if you need help taking down an epic check out the wiki on the matter.  It doesnt have my solo trick but it is rather good.  My trick was to spit and simply walk through tree's (as some epics do not use spit this will work.)

#31 Posted by Discorsi (1390 posts) -

cracked spore ftw.  The game is alright so far.  For being so shallow it still is pretty enjoyable like Dynasty Warriors ;X

#32 Posted by SSbabel (1141 posts) -

Dam thats a good effort il have to give it a try, lets hope or a good outcome.

:) we have a winner - its the safest way to do it, it take FOREVER though lol
just simply used WASD and walk backwards while at all times spitting at it

However

not all epic creatures are slow - some are actually quite fast, and that trick won't work lol
