Level help please on Backwoods Standoff python

@ducky @CodingGeek14 @PythonCoding
please help me

# Munchkins are attacking!
# The swarms will come at regular intervals.
# Whenever you can, cleave to clear the mass of enemies.

while True:
    enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy()
    # Use an if-statement with isReady to check "cleave":
    if enemy:
        ready = hero.isReady("cleave")
        # Cleave!
        hero.cleave(enemy)
    # Else, if cleave is not ready:
    hero.attack(enemy)
    hero.attack(enemy)
        # Attack the nearest ogre!
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy()
hero.attack(enemy)
hero.attack(enemy)        

this is python and i need help because i am stuck on this level

I think you should either continue JavaScript or start from the beginning with python, because if you start from the middle in any coding language, you’ll get confused.

Actually, ducky has a very good point here. I was trying to figure out how to explain syntax, but ducky nailed it!

Hold on, @ZAX155, I’ll help you

I think your problem is in this final piece of code:

You need to change the enemy in enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy to enemy1 as well as in both of your hero.attack(enemy) lines, @ZAX155

@ZAX155, actually, there are several problems, most being syntax issues.

First, the proper way to see if the hero is ready to cleave, is to add the isReady to the if statement…like:

    if enemy and hero.isReady("cleave"):

Second, the else statement is missing from the if block.

Third, as presented (shown) above, the final three lines will never run, as they are outside of the while True loop.

You actually don’t need the last three lines. They are useless. All you have to do is to put the isReady into the if statement, as @dedreous said, add an else statement to the if enemy statement, and put your hero.attack(enemy) lines into the else statement.

That is an extremely good point, @ducky
