This page will guide you through completing Stage 4 “Dream Pavilion” of Theater Mechanicus: Stage of Wonders.

This stage is surprisingly easy considering the enemies it has in it. The setup for this stage is an Electro and Pyro combination. For it to work flawlessly, we’ll need a bit of luck with the Wondrous Sticks. Bombardier and Heavenly Tumult are the main upgrades we want for Electro, with Beacon, and Inflammation for Pyro.

The enemies will come from the purple portals in the east, with them meeting up in front of our portal, this is where we place our Mechanici choke point. Start off by placing two Pyro Mechanici on the two panels near the north stairs. Place another two Pyro on the two panels farthest to the south, then finally fill up the rest of the panels with Electro. We should have 10 Mechanici placed. Start the phase, and go AFK if you want, as it’ll only be Hilichurls, and they take forever to get near your setup.

For this wave, place another two Electro Mechanici just before the south lane, in front of your Pyro/Electro Mechanici, and with them placed, that’ll be all the Mechanici placed for the stage. The reason why we ignore the other two Mechanici that can be placed, is to complete the challenge: “Complete a Stage on Difficulty 5 or above without building more than 12 Mechanici”. If you want to add the other two, place them as Electro on the north lane, in front of the stairs. You can start upgrading your Mechanici now, Bombardier, and Heavenly Tumult are a must for Electro whilst you should prioritize Beacon and Inflammation for Pyro. The only enemies to keep an eye on in this wave is the Hydro Samachurl, they have the uncanny ability to avoid everything.

Nothing really changes with Wave 3, keep the same setup, and keep upgrading your Mechanci, Electro should be your priority, followed closely by Pyro. Once again, the Samachurls are the biggest threat here, because they’re so quick. The Vengeance Electro upgrade will help tremendously here, as it can stop enemies in their place for a short while.

This wave is either really easy or really hard depending on your luck with the Wondrous Sticks, especially when facing the Ruin Guards, as they have a one-time only trait that can replenish all their health. If you haven’t been upgrading your Mechanici, now is the time to do so, make sure to upgrade the damage, and attack speed for both Electro and Pyro, and make sure to have the Bombardier, Heavenly Tumult and Vengeance Sticks for Electro, with Pyro Rings being nice to have for Pyro.

For Wave 5, you shouldn’t need to do anything other than upgrade your Mechanici. You’ll be facing either Ruin Hunters or Ruin Graders, but they won’t be able to handle the power of your Mechanici.
