The Great Owl(Days of Ruin) or Pulsatrix Assault(Dark Conflict) is the 22nd mission of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. The center of the level is continuously bombed by The Great Owl, dealing 5 damage to all units in the center 25 tiles.


To do:





Avoid the center of the map as the Great Owl/Pulsatrix will bomb that area at the beginning of each day. Penny's troops on the other hand will recklessly move into the central area and get themselves bombed in order to try rushing your HQ.

Focus on pushing south taking the road to the factory and capturing it. From there, use the captured production capabilities to push north with ground units and east from the northern airport with air units.

The airport can be defended with a Rockets on the western city or on the woods above it to also defend the city nearby. A rig can optionally be included to automatically supply it.


Completing The Great Owl unlocks Trial Maps #2, Shade Coast and #7, Tatter River.
