New Gem Set Bonus Research Tue, 10 Jan 2017 16:17:31 +0000 New Gem Set Research, a week before Super Wonder

MZ just recently released more research, for the Gem Set Tree.  Seeing as Super Wonder is a week away, the timing of the release, should come as no surprise to veteran Game of War players. If you plan on finishing it anytime soon, be prepared to pay, a lot.

It currently requires around 4.5KT(4,500T) of Wood, Stone & Ore (research does not require food or silver). Assuming you have no resources, it would cost you 45 bogo sets ($6,750), with current packs (50T RSS per pack).

Completion of the tree brings Research Power to 436.6B.

Is it worth it? Looking at the raw stats, the answer is yes. Completion adds increased Health, Attack, Defense, and march size. Yes, march size. MZ said no new additions to the march tree, but apparently that didn’t mean they wouldn’t add march size increase, elsewhere. In theory, it works great, as long as the defender doesn’t have the first levels of the research as well, or it just gains overpowered defense, frustrating most rally leaders.

Here is what you will gain, for completing the new portion of the Gem Research Tree.

  • An extra 1,000,000 Rally Capacity
  • Individual troop type 500% Attack, 1000% Health, and 500% Defense when hero is present.
  • Rally and Wonder Troop Attack, Health, and Defense.
  • Extra Boosts on all gem sets.
  • Gem Set Selector
  • And for the first time ever, the most awaited Embassy Defense Debuff

This research seems to be benefiting both sides. Traps with the new research are showing that they are overpowered in low levels, which is making it frustrating for rally leaders.

MZ is currently running Gem Set Research events, so try to complete your research with those, to at least earn some payback.

New Infantry Core Set – Styx Thu, 05 Jan 2017 06:28:07 +0000

Styx Infantry Core Set

Styx cores has been released by MZ along with the raw stats.

You can check out details of the Styx Core here.

6750% Infantry Attack
2150% Enemy Defense Debuff
2000% Infantry Health

Which in theory didn’t seemed that much of an improve. For a set that currently costs 3 packs to complete, it’s not much of an improvement, from its predecessor.

Equipped with banners, potion and boosted. KissMyCores shared his presets stats (attacks and debuffs vary from where you see it) , tests and opinion overall.

Shared a test on a 300B in Shogun

And the first hit against a 260B rally trap (was burned with Luna as well)

But overall, comments were clear that this set is not so much different from the other sets, just a slight increase on attack, and on attack debuffs, but still getting capped by the good traps.

T5 Elite Troops Wed, 28 Dec 2016 20:18:38 +0000 Fire Troops

MZ second Christmas present to us Game of War players, was the release of T5 Elite troops, Fire Troops.

The new release is for T5 regular Range, Cavalry, Infantry, and Siege troops. Research for these, will cost you no rss or speeds. Instead, you will use Fire Shards. Those can be obtained in the dungeon, or by buying packs.
Before you can do the research to unlock the troops, though, you must level up your Training Garrison. You can see the Training Garrison requirements here.

Centurions– Infantry

Longbowmen– Ranged

Warlords– Calvary

Demolishers– Siege

Training isn’t going to be cheap for these troops.

Clarifying to the rumor of Gear and Cores stats not being applied to T5, is completely FALSE. T5 may have a different category in hero boosts, however those stats are EXTRAS to the regular stats.

MZ has released a new banner for the Imperial Banner Building. This banner will provide a Health Bonus, to all troop types.

Activating a Legendary Hero Health Banner, will provide your troops with an additional 700% Health Bonus.

Making traps even harder to beat.

The Hero Health Banner is available in current packs.

A quick reminder, contrary to what people usually say. Banners are NOT expendables, you can activate it every time it expires, as long as you don’t switch between banners. If you switch banners, and want to activate it back, you must wait for the cooldown time.
