Higher Gladiator Levels are Here

Gladiator levels in Game of War just went up to at least 145.

Along with these new levels, you gain more hero skill points for the tree and unlock beastly, new skills for your Gladiator tree.

I made a quick video describing what to expect and how the heck to even upgrade them. 😉

Strengths of Gladiator Levels

Some of the boost categories enjoy incredible boosts. For instance, TROOP ATTACK, RALLY ATTACK, RALLY & WONDER HEALTH, and MOBILE TRAP HEALTH.

It’s clear that the creators intend to give power back to rally leaders with these new Gladiator levels.

So, be careful when you take a rally now. The results may surprise you!

Gladiator Level Requirements

The cost of 21-31 Gladiator levels are each 1 T Gladiator Medallions. Level 32 begins 4 T Medallions required.

Please be careful when defending a rally. It’s going to be a rocky road for a bit. The amount of attack and added health makes for a difficult time for micro traps.

Runes – Go Primordial! Full Statistical Analysis

This week we receive, among many other things, new runes and higher Mythical Liberator gem set levels. Currently, a pack is available “one million x level 100 Mythical Liberator gems.

Anytime I see the creators release that much of an item, I’m thinking, new gems must be around the corner, making those 100 million worthless soon. We shall see. However, let’s take a look at stats of these higher gem levels and the all new PRIMORDIAL RUNES SET.

Primordial Rune Set – Game of War

From the in-game blog:

Allow your weapons to channel ancient power and annihilate your foes by embedding all of the PRIMORDIAL RUNES and gaining these fatal boosts!

Primordial Runes Stats – Game of War

Boost % 
Legion Attack 1.5 MTT%
Onslaught Attack 100 KTT%
Type Defense 6 MT%
Rally and Wonder Health 3 MTT%
Mobile Trap Health 1.5 MTT%

As mentioned previously, these numbers don’t really tell us much until we take a look at our current stats. So, I’ll list what I have now. I have these runes equipped already, but we can at least see what percentage of my total stats these runes make up.

Conclusion – Primordial Runes for Micro Traps

Primordial Runes Set provides a huge boost to type defense and moderate attack. This is a perfect combination for micro trap players. The increased type defense, which is arguably the second best defense type behind Resolute Defense because of the difficult time attackers have in debuffing it, helps traps tremendously. Also, because micro traps have relatively few troops, 100 T – 500 T (T14) the added attack helps kill the incoming rally, which gains additional benefits from Rally Health/Attack.

As shown in the above chart, rally leaders gain an additional 616 MTT% troop health while in a rally. So, I’ve set rallies in the past and just sent themwithout any additional mates joining.  I simply wanted the added boosts for my troops while in rally. 🙂

Mythical Liberator Gem Set Game of WarMythical Liberator Gem – Level 100

This is fairly straightforward. I will remind you to use the “Rule of 28” when combining your gem sets. This means, do not combine your gems to the next level until you have at least 28 of each gem. When you combine them you’ll have a set of 7 (28 divided by 4 = 7). So, what i do is enter crafting section > gems > organize by special because its easier to scroll through and find MYTHICAL LIBERATORS.  If I have 21, then I can remove the 7 I have in my gear set. Next, I combine to the next level.

Finally, replace the old gem set in your “gem preset” and you are good to go!

Now let’s see what the blog has to say about these new gem set levels:

Show your enemies what you are made of. Combine your Gems and embed 7 full sets of the level 100 Mythical Liberator Gems in each piece of gear to burn your enemies with these amazing stats:

A quick glance at the Elite Magma Colossus’ Fire Rune Lv 6 shows me that those attack stats are in the TT% much lower than the KTT% we see in the new Primordial. However, you do lose T% of type defense. Although, defensive player type defenses are in the MT% or a million times that of your lost type defense debuff. LOL, ok so you are good to upgrade your runes to PRIMORDIAL RUNE SET, as its relatively close to current stats in game, albeit terrible for attackers, great for defenders!

Today they released new Gladiator Levels that provide incredible new stats for attackers with Multi-Kill stat.  More on this coming  right up!

Game of War Upgrading Strategy

Game of War has changed quickly over the past months. If you are just beginning on your journey or returning from a break, you should understand the new pace of content release and adjust your purchasing strategy accordingly.

In the beginning of Game of War, few packs at all were needed to advance your stronghold. However, presently, its impossible to advance your stronghold without some kind of purchase.  Timing of that purchase is essential if you are budgeting for Game of War.

When asked by players, should I buy this pack Dark? Well, the time of day matters, also whether you have time to enjoy the benefits of that pack upgrade before something new drops.

Timing of Pack Purchasing

Everyday new packs roll out.  The creators usually release them at 5 PM PDT, 8 PM EST, Europe you’re on your own LOL.  I guess around Midnight. So, if you ask me shortly before new packs drop, then my answer is generally no.  Wait for new packs to drop and along with it new content. You have about a 50% chance that new content is coming each day now.

That being said, if you purchase the pack will you use it enough before new content drops? If you buy and can’t play for a few days, then that pack becomes basically worthless.  You will need another pack to be safe that contains the previous 3 days drops.

Does this make sense? Hit me on Line if you have questions or in the comments below.

Again, be safe, have FUN!

Good luck and stay safe.

Zero to Hero!

Whats going on in Game of War?!

In the last few weeks, Game of War has changed greatly, giving rally leads the biggest advantage the game has ever seen.

Many players suffer one shot zeroes. Losing all there troops in one blow. The trap mentality is to add more troops. So you try 1TT, nope 2TT, Nope 3TT, Ok 4TT. Screw it for once troop count won’t fix this. We need something else. So this last weekend the higher hero, SH, and research became doable to most traps.

What do I need now in Game of War?

Troops, Hero Level, and Research

Last week I nearly lost everything, even with 2TT x T3. Well, I upgraded to see the difference. I went with hero lvl 80. The bigger boost towards the bottom of the skill tree are insane.

I’m talking huge benefits in defense and in debuffs. Next, I instantly upgraded all my buildings to lvl 80 giving me a nice boost to my resolute defense. I like the results so far. Then I went for the research.

With instant T11 research, I added 9 KT resolute defense (RD). Then I started the T12 tree. Luckily resolute defense is towards the top of this tree. It’s worth 15 KT when you max it. So, with the one pack I reached lvl 4 and and added 9.2 KT RD. That was huge! But I still wasn’t happy. I knew there was more.

So, I added the soldier avatars I got from the pack and it gave another 4 KT resolute . Hmmm still not happy. So, I added the new banners and runes to give me more defense.

Please check our banner and runes list for the best set up. Or join our line trap room. My numbers still didn’t impress me. I needed more. Luckily that one pack offered me the Harbinger accessories. Each adding 3KT resolute defense! I equip them and I check my stats. Boom 101KT resolute defense. I started at 46KT. I was super excited. But still wanted just a tad more.

Game of War Trap

Gear Upgrades

Next, with that pack I decided to upgrade my gear further. I took all my gear to lvl 9. And man it was a good move. I know have 285 KT individual defense. So, I think I’m looking pretty good. I port to the wonder. A 500B march hits. Capped. 700 capped .. Then a monster comes out of no where hero 190. 900B march… Capped. I knew that I was ready.

I went from zero to hero!! In just a few hours. If you have any questions feel free to check our line room or comment here. As always it’s been a pleasure.
