Dragon Dimension Starting Guide

I’m pretty excited about this Dragon Dimension so far.  It’s very similar to Game of War from July 2013 launch date.  However, I’ve noticed a few differences to look out for.

Buildings provide different boosts than in Demigod Dimension.  For instance, Barracks provide training speed and queue only while Villas provide defense stats. Hospitals provide no additional HP.

The best way to start Game of War Dragon Dimension is by achieving as many quests as possible in a chain. This provides the necessary rewards to keep going. You also obtain Hero XP to level up that hero. However, the hero skill tree is significantly different as well. Its much simpler than Demigod or the even the early days of Game of War.

Hero Levels 201-225 Game of War

Ten of each type of building Empire quest line

The trick to starting out any Game of War account, unless you plan to load it up with packs from the gate, is to build 10 of each type of building: Barracks, Hospital, Villas, Farm, Mine, Logging Camp, and Quarry.  Be sure to end each series of 10 with the building you want the most of.

So, if you’re going to stack Barracks in your city then build 10 Barracks last. The reason for doing all this is for the quest rewards from building 10 of each building.  This rewards resources and Hero XP. So, yes you will build then tear down some of those buildings.  Don’t worry it will be worth it.

More Quests! Daily, Alliance, VIP

Gladiator Levels Game of War

Second thing you want to do when starting is get those quests going. The timed quests provide additional resources and XP as well.

So far, I’ve reach level 8 Stronghold with just a $5.00 pack. I probably didn’t even need that, but I wanted to finished the “unlock Dragon Dimension Portal” quest.  This quest also provides linked reward to the Demigod Dimension, which I’ll jump into now.

Linked Demigod and Dragon Dimension Questing

Game of War Spiritual Building

When porting between dimensions you have to restart GoW application each time.  If you have two devices its possible, I think, to be logged into each dimension at the same time.

Also, just before you port through, look closely for your “Linked Rewards”. Depending which side of the portal you are on, you could be earning a little boost for the other side.

The Importance of Alliance Loyalty

Alliance loyalty is important for early dragon dimension. Shields CANNOT be purchased with gold in the Dragon Dimension. Instead, you must use alliance funds.

Peace Shield Costs

Purchase peace shields with alliance loyalty starting with 8 hours for 50,000 up to 3-day Peace Shield for 750,000.

Accumulate Alliance Loyalty

The best and nearly only way to gain loyalty is by completing alliance quests.  I think you receive some in alliance gifts as well. Peace shield DO appear in gold packs on the second purchase tier.   However, I don’t see alliance funds in the gold store yet or the packs offered in-game.

So ghost rally is your safest bet if on a tight entertainment budget.

Ghost or Fake Rally to Save Troops

If you can’t afford a shield then you must be a little creative in your approach to saving troops and resources.  First, keep your storehouse leveled up.

Your storehouse provides some insurance if you are attacked.

Hero Tip: The storehouse in Dragon Dimension saves Silver in addition to the other resources.

Ghost rally is pretty simple.  Once you’ve built a Hall of War you can set a rally on some abandoned level 10.  Send your troops on a rally and they won’t be harmed should you get attacked.

Set the timer to 8 hours to a place that marches through the forest for maximum march time. If you do it right you can keep your troops safe for most of the day.

The remaining troops you can send to a friends shielded embassy. Whatever troops remain must be covered by hospital capacity.

Another option that I don’t recommend but could help you in a fight is to send troops to an encampment. I’ll leave this for another guide.

Final Thoughts

I hope you enjoy the Dragon Dimension! It’s been a joy reconnecting with so many players recently from our half-decade journey in Game of War.

Good luck and have fun!

Bitcoin in Game of War: Win Yours in KVK?

Bitcoin is apparently coming to Game of War! Check the in-game blog today and find “Win Bitcoin!” a teaser for an upcoming event. It promises real prizes for participating in a one of a kind, once in a lifetime event!

The battles for Super Wonder have brought new Emperors and new Enemies vying for POWER! Brave warriors have fought with honor and conviction to restore order to their kingdoms.

Now, whispers of a NEW EVENT have brought on new challengers to fight for NEW KINGDOMS, NEW POWERS, AND NEW TREASURES – THE GREATEST GIFTS OF THE FIRE AGE!

The blog itself doesn’t mention exactly how the Bitcoin may be won, but evidently Bitcoin is entering Game of War Fire Age in some fashion.

Bitcoin in Game of War Age

Bitcoin in Game of War?

The topic of Bitcoin has taken the world by storm.  Cynics may say that this is a strategy to capture some of that popularity and bolster support for the Super Wonder Events in Game of War Fire Age.

Is that far-fetched?

Well, not much is told in the blog itself of the rules to enter or win. However, the blog recently posted eligibility rules and disclaimers. I get back into that soon, but first what is Bitcoin?

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is simply a cryptocurrency, or digital currency, somewhat similar to Paypal in its simplicity to transfer, but different in that a bank or financial institution does not keep a record book of your transactions and balance.

Instead the ledger is held by all members of the system. If someone tries to add or trade bogus coins it’s easily detected by the system through a cross-reference of the millions of correct ledgers.

That is a very simple explanation of Bitcoin.

Is it safe? Japan has adopted as a legal currency.

Japan Legalizes Bitcoin as Currency

I started following Bitcoin some time ago when the Japanese economy fully adopted it as a currency.

How Can I Receive Bitcoin from the Event?

To receive or send Bitcoin you need a wallet. Similar to a Paypal account but you’ll be sending and receiving digital currency instead of dollars. However, your coins may be exchanged or sold for dollars.

One of the most popular Bitcoin services is Coinbase. This firm is responsible for the valuation of Bitcoin for purposes of the reward. The Event uses the Bitcoin price at stated on Coinbase.com as the value of Bitcoin for the prize.

I began my journey with Bitcoin using this firm. I signed up following their simple step-by-step instructions. I’m now able to check my coins on the app they provide for real time trading.

If you want to check it, Coinbase is giving away $10 in Bitcoin free when you Buy or Sell $100.00.

Our Game of War Story

While many of our friends and old alliance mates have moved on to other things, it’s nice to reminisce about old battles and kingdom narratives.

“Game of War Story” project provides a place for players to reflect on the past 3 or 4 years experiences and friendships.

What’s your Game of War Story?

 

Tell us yours in the comments below.


Enjoy this Game of War Story from October 20, 2014

The latest news in Dahae kingdom is a continuation of the DF (Dahae Fighters) vs. D (Dreaded Legion) saga.  DF, in a surprise move, has decided to offer new kingdom rules to all alliances.

This coming from the alliance that since its inception has fought against rules of the ruling alliance, creating chaos and fear, forcing many to quit Game of War completely.

Game of War Kingdom Rules: Dahaefighter

The spirit of these new rules are said to strengthen the kingdom for kvk events.  They are basically 1) no tile hitting outside of kill event 2) no holding heroes 3) no rallying.

The most comical part of the whole scenario was they created a room for the leaders of alliances to join and discuss the rules.  But you can imagine how that went.

Keep in mind DF has been terrorizing it’s own kingdom for months now.  Zeroing people, farming them, executing heroes.

Initially they stated it was to toughen and strengthen the weak for kvk.  Now they argue Dahae needs rules of non aggression to grow.

game of war story

R5 Kingdom Discussions

The discussion was pleasantly taking place until one member of DF became agitated and began cursing everyone in the room out.

This ultimately led to most of the top alliances to reject the rules.

DF has since announced war against them.

The smaller alliances who accepted the rules have already experienced DF breaking them by being tiled by them.

True Intentions of Kingdom Rules

So, what are the true intentions behind these new rules?

Mostly posturing to appear to rule the kingdom?  DF can’t even control the wonder.  Last night they got their butt’s handed to them by PK.

In my mind they continue to be a band of misfits and thieves attempting to establish themselves as an honorable and legitimate alliance with Dahae’s best interests at heart.

Sounds like the lie Michael Corleone from The Godather tells his wife over and over.  “We will soon be 100% legitimate.”

Mega Alliances – A Better Way to Rally

You can now join a Mega Alliance in Game of War! Tired of not being able to fill rallies? Now you can join up with your friend’s alliance and fill from separate tags.

Also, Mega Alliances now gain gift level! If you’re like me, you’ll spend the first several minutes after logging in collecting Mega Alliance Gifts…

At the end of this post is an invite to a Mega Alliance. If your alliance is recruiting, leave a comment. Enjoy!

Mega Alliance Formation

Under your alliance tab, you see “Mega Alliance” tab. Here you can “Create, Join, or check Invites” to other Mega Alliances. You need rank 5 to create or join a Mega Alliance.

Mega Alliance Participation

Research is required to set rallies in the Mega Alliance. However, you can join them without it.

Several Mega Alliance research categories must be completed before you can lead a mega rally. This research continues to expand. Along with this research is continued additions of tiers of troops. Pay attention to which troops are being sent in the Mega Alliance.

If you don’t have the best troops, don’t panic, any tier of troops is better than none at all. Ask the leader if you may add your tier of troops and traps.

Typically, unless in a wonder fight, your troops, regardless of tier are welcome to join the rally.

Mega Alliances Game of War gow

Join a Mega Alliance

If you aren’t an R5, then ask your leadership if they’ve considered joining a mega alliance.  Mega alliance, while not exactly an alliance merge, it should be treated as such.  You will be fighting with another entire alliance. Some folks in that alliance may very well have been your enemy the day before haha.

It’s important that your alliance is aware of the pros and cons of joining another alliance as a mega. For leaders, I recommend creating a group of rank 3’s that is full of veterans that you trust will help weigh those pros and cons before joining a mega. This way, most of the alliance is aware of the coming changes and can give their opinion.

What you don’t want is joining a mega alliance and later discovering your mates aren’t so keen to fight with your selection.

Game of War Mega Alliance gow

Purpose of Mega Alliances

More action for all! Mega alliances make it much easier to fill rallies and find targets. I’ve enjoyed the mega alliance I joined. The action is non-stop and the rallies and results are nuts!

If you haven’t already I recommend getting plugged into a Mega Alliance. My alliance is recruiting. Contact via Line App: darkthorne or post a comment below 🙂
