Topic: creation order, types of equipment, sources of forging resources
Lord’s items are a powerful source of strength. The further you go into the game, the more you need powerful equipment, and it’s better to start getting ready in advance.
Apart from their own power, items also allow you to add Gemstones in them, which also add enhancements to basic features for the main types of troops.
The more powerful an item is, the more expensive it is in Materials and the harder it is to get the Scroll for its crafting.
Not to waste time on long collecting of rare items, you should start with those that are easier and cheaper. This way you’ll manage to insert Gemstones in as many equipment slots as you can straightaway and start enjoying their benefits.
II. Basic Equipment
You should better focus on those items that contain 3 slots for Gemstones. As depending on the color of the item a new feature is added to the list of things given by the item, you should figure out the usefulness of these features in Combat, not to waste extra resources.
1. Equipment classification
Items vary in color class, number of slots and intended use. All items can be viewed in detail in Forge in the forging section.
- Item color defines the number of bonuses. There are 6 types of colors, each new color adds one extra bonus to the item’s list. They can be from the simplest with 1 type of bonuses to the most “exclusive” with 6 types of bonuses: grey, green, blue, violet, orange, golden.
- The number of Gemstone sockets. There are 3 classes of stones capacity – for 1, 2 and 3 slots.
- Assignment in the game. Items can be conditionally divided into 3 types:
- for farming activities, containing resource gathering features;
- for development – making Construction cheaper, speeding up development (Construction and Research), army production and healing.
- for war – addition of Combat features.
2. Recommended order of crafting equipment
The presented tactics of items collection will give a maximally fast development and significant economy. At the same time you are sure to collect the best features possible at the early stage of the game.
- Sword (Galatine)
- Plate (Dragon Plate)
- Stone (Stone of Giramphiel)
- Boots (Dragon Protectors)
- Helmet (Horns of Destruction)
- Ring (Ring of Glory)
You can also use the saved funds for equipment which gives development speed:
- Dawn Coronet
- Galahad’s Boots
3. Items collection
Collection consists of 3 main parts:
It’s faster and more profitable to buy the necessary amount of Steel in the Magic Spire. In about a week you’re able to collect enough Steel for the best items available to an ordinary player.
There are several affordable sources of Materials collection:
- Purchase in the Trials Shop
It’s a good way to buy a small amount of the Materials you lack at the beginning of development.
- Alliance Exchange
Request the Materials required. By passing them from farms and getting Materials from the members of your Alliance, you will achieve success fast.
- Alliance Spirit Store
Thanks to smoke from various Events you can buy the Materials you lack.
- Lucky Shot
In the “Equipment” Reward Type section you should set the rewards in such a way that the first and the second rewards (640 and 4000 Materials) is in the form of the Materials you need. By making 3 shots you will collect a lot of Materials.
Constant marches on Barbarians give a good amount of Forging Materials.
- Magic Spire
It’s a convenient extra source of Materials. It’s worth using it at the beginning, to collect a basic item set.
Scrolls are easier and safer to get by carrying out manoeuvres in the Lucky Shot. You should refresh the giving out in rewards till the Bully Scroll appears in the list. Basically it happens simultaneously with obtaining Materials for items. The Bully Scroll activates into Armor Scroll or Sword Scroll. Then this Scroll is passed to the Crucible which is at the Alchemist’s. On the points you get you can buy the necessary item Scroll from the same Alchemist.
From the points from the Bully Scroll only you can obtain almost the whole blue package in a week, it costs 4506 points. The violet package is 3 times more expensive – 13512 points. The orange package of the same items is 10 times more expensive than the blue one – 45030 points.
To collect items of a new color, you have to get the missing amount of Forging Materials and when ready un-forge the old item. In un-forging an item, the Materials and Steel are not lost, only the Scroll is lost.
It takes about 3 days to get one Bully Scroll. If you don’t waste your efforts on crafting blue items, then you can create a violet set in 12 days. It will take you about 40 days to collect Scrolls for the orange set.
Depending on the time of Scrolls collection you can estimate the need for Materials and Steel.
III. Golden Equipment
Creating daredevil set is a difficult stage of account development in terms of input. The most challenging part is collecting Rare Materials. Their sources are limited and require either money or time with some tricks in the game mechanics:
- Subscription purchase
It costs 30$ and guarantees that you’re given 12 Material fragments daily.
- Magic Spire
It allows you to buy 8 fragments of Rare Materials once a day. It’s a profitable option for personal purchase and enables well boosted farms to buy these fragments of Materials to pass them to the main account through Alliance Exchange. At the same time the main account must buy fragments of the Daredevil Scroll, so that upon collection of the necessary amount of Materials you could create the needed Scroll.
- Alliance Exchange
You’re required to have at least 2 developed farms or people in Alliance who are ready to give you the necessary quantity of Material fragments daily – 16 pieces a day.
There’s an option of creating your own farm accounts that will pass Materials to the main account.
Barbarians’ bonus chests can contain from 1 to 3 fragments. You can obtain 3 chest keys a day if you complete daily tasks to 340 points. It’s a good way, considering than at the same time you get a lot of other bonuses from there.
If you plan a good game, it’s better to collect higher sets in advance because it’s these sets that give considerable and decisive advantages over most players. Having developed farms will make your task significantly easier, as you will get ahead of the players that don’t pay attention to this aspect of the game.
As a result of obtaining the golden equipment of the Daredevil set level, you’ll get strong features thanks to the Damages it gives against the enemy army. Besides, the full set of golden items has a synergy effect when their level is boosted, which significantly increases the features. Synergy has a big increase factor for basic features.
A qualitative approach to equipment gives you a good increase in the necessary Combat features. It’s an important aspect of the game, which is developed simultaneously with other growth directions.
The goal, of course, are the higher available types of equipment. So far it’s the Daredevil set – the best option in the features you receive, the cost and difficulty of collection.
In the end at a maximum level of synergy (with items enhanced by +5) you can get very powerful features which can be compared in their effect with the features obtained from Prestige Banners of the highest level.
