Guide

Camps return to bandit nest.png

This guide uses the camp numbers shown in the map image on the right.  Click the image to view full-size.

This adventure map appears at first to be non-linear, but on closer examination, you can see that the zone borders are arranged such that careful removal of leader camps will actually remove intercepting camps that block the next leader.  With careful planning, you will only need to attack two of the eleven bandit camps.  Also, this guide doesn't have any blocks, so troop losses may be reduced if you can work out a way to block the two bandit camps.

Camp Bandits Attack With Losses
First, you need to take out Leader 2, as this will eliminate camps 1, 2 and 5

Next, remove Bandit Leader 1, which will also remove Bandit Camp 4 from the map.

Next, we head for Leader Camp 3, which will also eliminate Bandit Camp 9, clearing the way to the 4th Leader.

There is now a clear path to Leader Camp 4, and taking this one out will also remove all other Bandit Camps which could intercept you, leaving just the final leader as an easy target.

Ultra-Fast Solution

If you are Level 50, then to quickly grab the loot for this adventure, you can use a Weak Point Potion on the last camp.  This will eliminate the 100 Thugs, leaving Chuck and Skunk.  You can then use a Ranged Support to finish off the two bosses.  Note that you will only gain a handful of Star Coins (about 10) if you use this method, but will get all the other loot shown below.

Bandits

The following bandits are found in the Return to Bandit Nest adventure:

Scavenger

Ranger

Thug

Guard Dog

Stone Thrower
