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.
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.
