Beating Legend with Bots

If the bots are tanky enough and if you can DPS enough, and if the boss you get isn’t a Chaos Spawn (Because bots are basically walking health potions to a CS), you can beat Legend with Bots. However, it can take a long time and you have to play like a goddam rockstar during basically every second in order to make it happen.

Yes, it is possible, but the player has to be insanely skilled and carry the team every step of the way, especially considering that if you die the game ends, regardless of if the bots survive. And the Bots are constructed out of industrial strength autism so having them do things like pick up items or you if you are incapacitated is an exercise in frustration.

BUT WHY, RAGS, ARE YOU PLAYING WITH BOTS? Well I’m glad you asked. I don’t have reliable internet at the moment so I’m challenging myself because I hate myself.

It would be really neat if there was a special built in reward for completing Legend with Bots…as it’s such a difficult task to accomplish even with no books that I feel you should be given at least a General’s Vault, perhaps. Or maybe double the rewards of books that the player carries to the end?

UPDATE: Lack of a boss spawning at all immensely deceases the probability of horrible death. Bots on Legend have also given me the ability to surpass the 1,000 kills mark.

That sucks you have to play with bots due to connection issues. If it helps, I’ve found the more CC you can dish out, the better, as the bots have zero survival instincts when it comes to fighting multiples of anything or any boss other than Roger. I’ve found Flamewave Staff, for example, to be very effective when playing with bots because you basically permanently blast a swath of breathing room around them which lets them go ham w/o letting themselves get double chopped by SV.

Sounds like an exercise in frustration to me. I can’t stand bots om basically any difficulty since they don’t pick up books and don’t use potions, don’t throw bombs… Etc.
Also vermintide video review when?

Just take clear you get unchained and Ironbreaker in your botteam and all is fine. You could even give them NB, since they´re really strong af. Kruber as bot sucks hard… (every career). On Kerillian i would take Shade or Waystalker (special or boss-killing), even if the surviveability is just sick… They´re still stronger than the most players and could even teleport to you, which you can exploit. Just rush through health potions and your bots maybe won´t take them, so you can go with 3 tomes / 1 grim. I mostly go out of fight (3-4 mobs still standing) and pass the known medicine locations, while the bots still fight.

Chaos Spawn is hard to fight with bots yeah… you really have to be sure, that you get aggro as much as you can, so the bots are able to kill it.

The real horrible scenarios are Rasknitt and Burblespue… they can´t play, or better can´t dodge the gatling/hurricane etc. Be clear Bardin and probably a Markus get a shield. Bödvarr and Spinemanglr are quiet fine to manage with them.

Play with patience and you´ll win nearly every run with no issues. ^^

Tho in my case when you start firing, bots tend to get in front of you and say “please friendly fire me”.
