Apollo Core Set
It’s that time again. Yes, already. A new core set, called the Apollo core set has been released. The Apollo set replaces the Hades core set as the premier wonder and super wonder core set, and the stats are so good they’re just silly. The “Radiant Pauldron” recipe was originally INCORRECTLY posted on the blog, but is correct now.
Here are the stats, which were compiled on LINE so I’m not actually sure who the original crafter of these two sets are. If they are yours, please let me know and I will post a credit for you. Also, I am not sure about whether or not these include the correct armor secret recipe.
If we’re trying to summarize Apollo concisely, it’s a wonder/super wonder core designed to massively debuff any troops an attacker might send at you. There are relatively mediocre Troop Type Attacks (Infantry/Ranged/Cavalry individually), but this is paired with well over 2000% Troop Attack. There’s also solid Troop Defense for a wonder core (just under 1500%) and nearly 2150% Troop Health. Troop Type Defenses are also buffed. This is coupled with massive Enemy Troop Type Attack Debuff, as well as Enemy Troop Type Health Debuff to make killing the incoming rally easier. All of these stats add up to make the best wonder defense cores to date.
The first impression I’ve gotten of Apollo from watching the super wonder is that it is superlatively successful at defending the wonder; far better than any set prior to it. The number of times the super wonder changed hands seemed vastly lower than usual (no data to support this, my speakers just didn’t make that “wonder conquered” dingle every time a new alliance got the super wonder nearly as often).
And here are the highlights in an easier to read format:
As you can see, the stats are quite impressive when a small troop total is defending, which is the case when talking about any wonder battle.
For those that have used a set of Apollo, what do you guys think of it?
