Dungeon Defenders II game Status:
You need more than just that. You need an aura monk and a traptress, and tower EV, they will help much more once you know how to use them.
Branch out and get other characters up, and you'll be a LOT more successful when you mix several heroes' defenses.
Insane aqua at your gear wont net you any better gear or atleast much better gear if you can do survival you can start getting a decent sea horse. A monk was probably the most useful addition to my team when I started.
Funny enough, your English is actually better than a lot of the board members who live in English-speaking countries. Your post was much easier to understand than 1/3 of the ones you'll find on these boards. ^_^;; As for progression, building one good DPS class can also mean the world. The most-utilized one nowadays is the Monk, for their versatility, but the other classes can hold their own as well. You'll want to get your damage up, but just as importantly you need to raise your armor resistances. I'm not sure if there's a proper FAQ up for building armor resistances, otherwise I'm considering typing one up myself. It seems to be the main thing that friends of mine are lacking with regards to building a Nightmare-capable DPS class.
If you can get to the last wave of Endless Spires you are in a pretty good place.
You'll want to get your Apprentice up to comparable stats with your Summoner. Upgrading items is very important. With 500+ stats you should be able to beat all of the Shards campaigns on Insane. You'll need to adjust your strategies. Looking up builds is good mainly to figure out what the ideal chokepoints are to build at.
You're going to need an Aura Monk. Ensnare+Electric+Drain is simply too powerful to ignore.
Once you can do the Shards maps on Insane you can then do Survival mode to get the pets from Misty, Moraggo, and Aquanos. The seahorses from Aquanos can be Transcendent quality and have 300+ to tower stats.
Another good thing to do is upgrade your weapons. You can try doing the Assault Mission packs on Hard, and then when your gear is better you can do it on Insane. You can also do easy Nightmare Challenge maps like Ogre Crush and Raining Goblins. Ogre Crush can be beaten by using Summoner Ogres backed up with towers. Raining Goblins can be beaten using Spiked Barricades to surround the crystal, plus a couple of Summoner Ogres and mages. This can get you a good monk weapon and a good apprentice weapon. I recommend building a DPS Monk to beat the Assault mission pack and eventually the Boss Rush challenge on Insane. You can get transcendent and supposedly even supreme items from doing Boss Rush on Insane HC. Keep in mind that DPS character's armor should provide him very high resistances.
Another good goal would be to try beating the early campaign maps on Nightmare. I feel like in your summoner's gear you should be able to handle Deeper Well using a couple of Ogres with mages/archers as backup, even without using any DU. Summoner Ogres are very powerful. If you can do that, and gear gear in the 500s+ on a Summoner, EV, and Apprentice, you should be able to do Survival Magus Quarters on NM and get some good gear that way (should Wave 1 Endless Spires prove too boring).
Anyway... that should be some solid tips to get you off the ground. I played the game when it was brand new, and had 250 hours in with 200 stats. I just came back to the game a couple of weeks ago, and with 100 hours played I've now got 1000+ on a few characters by playing alone and with a friend of mine who also just returned to the game. Its definitely an uphill battle; don't be afraid to look up other people's builds to give you some good ideas on where to start. I never copy other people's builds exactly since stat differences can make a big different, but they are a good starting point.
EDIT: Oh yea, once you have an Apprentice for towers, Series EV for walls, Summoner for Minions, and Monk for Auras, you can beat the Halloween Spooktacular on Nightmare fairly easily with 500+ stats. This can easily net you 60-100 million mana in one run, not to mention a lot of mythical gear.
