March Research Tree

The Crafting Tree still feels very new but MZ don’t hang about. They have just introduced a long and varied research tree called ‘March’. The blog makes reference to it being ‘critical for the Alliance City’ which may explain some of the otherwise odd research options including a whole 10 levels for a total of 1% resource sharing tax reduction!.  ...

Skeleton Dragons are Back

These undead dragon skeletons are great. They only appear at lvl 4 and above but their item drops are much better than normal lvl 4s.  Also when you kill them you get a tomb with 1500 gold (at lvl 4) with a chance to gather some nice Pieces. Make the most of them – they didn’t hang around for long ...

Optimum Attacking – Is a Balanced Army Best?

Should I attack with a balanced army or just one troop type? MZ created a rock, paper, scissors combat system to add tactical depth to the game. Rock bashes scissors, scissors cuts paper, paper wraps rock. Or does it? It was a system designed to make you think about your army composition and respond to your opponent’s decisions. Except there ...

Boar Gems

Along with a new set of BBQ-based equipment, MZ has released a set of Boar Gems. And boy are they sweet. These gems are by far the most effective attack gem in the game – Troop Health Debuff is essentially as good as an attack boost for all three troop types. Grab them while they’re hot.
