Gems for Wonder

In a Wonder fight the amount of troops is typically the same and therefore the most important troop boosts are those that increase Attack, Attack Debuff, Health, Health Debuff.  Defense and Defense debuff are not as important as the previous four.

With this being said, the best gems for Wonder fights are the following:

  1. Leap Year Special +35% Attack
  2. Chocolate Gem +35% Troop Attack Debuff
  3. Dragonfire Special +25% Attack
  4. Gem of Power +25% Attack
  5. Scarlet +25% Attack Debuff
  6. Gem of Annihilation/Protection +25% Rally Attack, +25% Rally Defense
  7. Chronos +12.5% Attack, +12.5% Attack Debuff
  8. Abyssal Gem +20% Attack, 5% Defense
  9. Father Time Gem +12.5% Attack, 12.5% Health Debuff
  10. Rose Gem +12.5% Attack, 12.5% Health
  11. Egg Gem 35% Health
  12. Hallows Gem +12.5% Attack, +12.5% Defense
  13. Sovereignty Gem +12.5% Attack, +12.5% Defense Debuff

Note that Gem of Protection should be used only when defending a Wonder.  Furthermore, Rally Defense works only to offset Rally Attack.  Therefore, if your opponent has minimal Rally Attack then gemming for Rally Defense over the amount of Rally Attack you are defending against is a waste.  This is why most rally leaders choose a different gem type or just use two Gems of Protection to counter the 50% Rally Attack from Skill Tree.

Wonder Core Sets

Four Horsemen

This core set is the original Secret Core Recipe.  Also referred to as 4H.   Its a wonder how people were able to discover it.  I’m not sure if it was indeed discovered before Mz released it to the world.  However, it remains a formidable core set for Wonder battles.  The Bonus to Troop Attack is what makes this set.  Look for this bonus of 700% or more.  Once you attain the bonus then be sure to craft a second Four Horsemen set you keep in your inventory at all time to retain the expensive Full Set Bonus.  The second set need only have Level 6 Cores and Level 1 Pieces.  Place a low level Gem in the set so you can identify it as a placeholder set.

Emerald Dragon

Emerald Dragon or (ED) as its unfortunately referenced… This is the second wonder battle core set and its focus is on Troop Specific boosts.  It has high Troop Specific Health and Troop Specific Attack making it difficult to Debuff.  A new Emerald Dragon recipe recently popped up making it even more difficult to defeat.


Orion is an Infantry and Ranged Wonder battle core set.  Its strength lies in its tremendous Counter Troop Type Attack Debuffs.  It debuffs the attack of Ranged and Cavalry.  Also, you can set its Full Set Bonus to incredible Infantry Attack Debuff.


Infantry and Cavalry Wonder Set.

Dread Captain

Troop Health, Attack, Cavalry Attack with Health Debuff.

Missile Attack Rally Core Sets

Gem selection for the following Missile Attack Rally Core Sets, should focus on the troop type Attack and Defense Debuff.
