    Plan your INT against Arcane Sapper, don't make the same mistake

    Arcane Sapper is the most dominant end game character. With end game gear he is hard to kill and does huge damage. You must make sure he doesn't teleport to your weak back line characters. Otherwise anyone with arcane sapper will beat you easily in arena.

    Arcane Sapper will always teleport to your highest INT character, so just make sure you don't fully star/enchant your commando and leave shadow (avoid enchanting the INT items). You can also you use an INT tank like Psychopath, Centaur or Warrior Monk. You can also bring a high INT mid-line like your own arcane sapper. If you play a mage team, make sure your old curse or death mage has the highest INT, not your mystic or succubus.

    Finally, level up your arcane sapper and abuse anyone who doesn't control their INT!

    A veteran player from "the other game" told me that Chaplain is a good counter to AS. I already tested her in like 10 fights and the win rate was 50%

    She basically resist AS attacks with her purple skill (40% pd reduction) and charm him just before he jumps for second time sending him back to attack his own major INT comrade.

    Im just 73, but imperial executioner works some times ... good armor high int ... duck .... but it is still like a lottery, and then there is still the rest of the other team

    Well, in my server Sapper went mandatory in top 20 since like 9 days ago. I've been testing how to beat him and right now have 3 tactics:

    A) Chaplain: already mentioned in previous post. Risky tactic btw, there are more viable counters.

    B) Warrior Monk: pair him with a non-mage team to be sure he will be the top INT hero. The enemy sapper jumps in front on him and will die really fast.

    C) Mystic + Sapper: this has been my last tactic used to fight Sapper and i love it. Basically it's fighting Fire with Fire.
    Mystic blind its just a HUGE balance changer forcing enemy sapper to miss some hits and at the same time giving your own sapper more survivability. Enemy sapper will die first and yours will carry the fight. (Drunken Master should replace my WC for best AS support)

    WM +Commando against AS

    I am using AS everywhere, almost, since I learnt the lessons...a few.

    Commando it will stun the first tank: http://forum.ucool.com/showthread.ph...the-first-Tank

    Sooner or later Wind Master ( which is and Int hero) will stun one more.

    Some other hero has stun too, even Emberstar has, but his stun is short time.

    The "problem" it is, I am able to escape from Commando's stun, then AS jump to back line.
    At the back line it is a Succubus, OC, which I want to kill, usually.
    It happens many-many times to get dot from Succubus(Int) and not able to cast AS ulti, because WM stun with dot on him. Then he fills WM / SUC with 600 killing energy... and they cast 1-2 ulti on my team.

    Leaves Shadow has a silence too, but WM really good against him.

    I'm using the same team trading wc for panda (though my team is lvl 75 before arcane gets his second +dodge so it's much less effective). End-game is a problem though since mystic and commando are quite weak. Maybe that changes at lvl 80.

    Enemy AS will be your temporary Damage Dealer. Enchant skill effect from chaplain.

    Drunken master + Mystic + Frost mage + AS is a good combo at arena.. to atk and to defend in arena

    Enchant max on frost mage, AS will jump to her.. if lucky she will cover herself with shield then drunken + mystic will make him miss and stun him. Another DPS that is recommended will be leave shadow, by the time AS jump, her ice arrow will be rdy to slow and critical at him.

    i lost the first one and I was using Leaves, then i switched to WM and it went really good with 3 consecutive victories, hes nearly always top1:
