The Dire Spires Strategy

The Dire Spires Map 2-1

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Recommended Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

In this stage, you will have two wall-nut to help you get started. Simply place 4 peashooters for your defense according to this picture. You may need to freeze the barrel zombie when they get naked and run.

The Dire Spires Map 2-2

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Recommended Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

This stage is a little tricky because you will have a couple barrel zombies running in from 3 different paths. You will need enough fire power and coverage to kill the barrel zombies before they kill you.

Start the stage by placing a sunflower, then build out your line of defense with 6~7 peashooters to fully cover your areas. You actually do not need wall-nuts unless you really have a hard time to beat the stage. Like 2-1, you may have to freeze the barrel runner once their barrels shed.

The Dire Spires Map 2-3

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Recommended Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

This stage can be confusing when you first start, however there are a few “safe” spots where you can place your peashooters while dealing damage to the most tiles. Follow our placement to beat the stage quite easily. You will need 2~3 sunflowers near the beginning to make sure that you have enough sun production.

Place the peashooters as the zombies come across. Towards the middle and end where there are a couple of barrel runners, you can either boost your peashooters and freeze them to pass the stage easily.

The Dire Spires Map 2-4

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Units: Peashooters

In this stage, you will have to place only peashooters as your defense against the zombies. To pass the stage, you will have to continuously buff up your plants to boost their range. The trick is to keep the peashooter near the enemy line boosted, so that your peashooters in the back only acts as back up.

The Dire Spires Map 2-5

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

This stage is pretty straight forward. Your goal is to have enough peashooters so that they can kill all incoming zombies without using wall nuts. We have found that you can beat the stage pretty easily with 6 peashooters, although you could also beat it with 5 peashooters by removing the one in the middle. However you may need to start using zombie freeze to stop the barrel runners.

The Dire Spires Map 2-6

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

In this stage, the two paths cannot be overlapped and you must have enough peashooters to cover both of the path. Plant the two peashooters at the location shown in the picture. Ideally you would want to peashooters at each of the path. Plant 1 sunflower to buff your plants or freeze the barrel runners.

The Dire Spires Map 2-7

Enemies: Regular Zombie, Conehead, Barrel Zombie
Units: Peashooters, Sunflower

This stage is very similar to 2-2. However you have two paths on the other side. To beat the stage effortlessly without pulling out your hair, you will need to cover both paths.

Our strategy starts with 2 sunflowers to cover the peashooter investment later. Place at least 6 peas to cover both paths and take down the zombies. The single peashooter on the other side is optional, however with that single peashooter you can take down barrel runners much easier.
