Hero Levels 101 – 110 Released

Game of War released new levels tonight – Hero Level 101 through Hero Level 110. With these new hero levels comes another large increase to stats (both offensive and defensive), and it should shake up this weekend’s merge event quite a bit. Leveling your hero requires Heroic Rings, which were just released in packs tonight.

Hero level 111 is already showing (with stats, instead of the usual lock), but it is currently unobtainable.

We have color coded the stats provided by each level to make it a bit easier to figure out what each level provides.

Nemesis Lord Defensive Set Released, Mega Merge March Boosts

Game of War released it’s latest set of defense gear – the Nemesis Lord set.

This set is a strong upgrade across the board for any traps/fillers. The defense amounts on this set jump to incredible amounts in just base stats, much less after it is enhanced, leveled, and gemmed.

These are the full BASE stats for the new set (no gems or enhancements). The 5/7 set bonuses listed are assuming that you are skilled into them (which you should be).

Mega Merge March Boost Analysis

There have been a ton of questions about the 1000% March Boosts that have been released for the Mega Merge event this weekend. It appears as if you can only use one merge boost at a time (they won’t stack). We have done some math and this is what our analysis is, at this point :

Solo Marches – Fully Maxed

  • Base Solo March : 27,000,000
  • 200% Solo March : 81,000,000
  • Mega Merge 1000% Solo March : 297,000,000

Base Rally Marches – Fully Maxed

  • Base Rally : 219,000,000
  • Mega Merge 1000% Rally March : 2,409,000,000


  • Standard Boosted (200%) : 300,000,000
  • Mega Merge Boosted (1000% Rally and 200% March) : 2,490,000,000

If the numbers for the Rally boost go along with how March boosts act, these will be the numbers for the Mega Merge event. It remains to be seen if they will actually use the same boosting system (it is currently believed that they will).

In our opinion, these boosts aren’t intending to have entirely full rallies. They are intended to reward the most active alliances with the most fillers. While these boosts are active, the R4/R5’s of alliances will (finally) not have to worry about fillers complaining about being able to get into rallies. It is not expected that these massive rallies will be entirely full – it is just a way to reward alliances that have 40 active players during the event.

This means that those Kingdoms that are organized enough to be able to form some sort of “super alliance” for the event will have a VERY LARGE leg up for the event.

Good luck out there, folks. Please remember that your Troop Defense is based off of a RATIO of defending troops to attacking troops. With this MASSIVE increase in attacking troops, your Troop Defense will be FAR WEAKER. Traps and fillers need to be incredibly weary when they see a very large march coming at them – their defense is losing a ton of value in this circumstance.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Mythic Liberator Gems Level 10+ Released, Tier 7 Research Costs Finalized

Mythical Liberator Gems Levels 10 through 20

Game of War released new GEM LEVELS for the Mythical Liberator Gem Set tonight. So far, we know the following :

  • The maximum level is currently unknown. We currently have definitive stats through level 13. We will update as we get more.
  • Any level gem will apply to the full set bonus for the gems (which is still massive, in comparison to the gems). This means you can stick a level 6 in with level 15’s and still receive the full gem set bonus.
  • DO NOT MASTER COMBINE YOUR GEMS. You want to ensure you will have 7 sets of whatever the max level you can go to is. You always want to make sure you have 7 sets of your maximum level, rather than master combining all the way up and being forced to attempt to fill in the rest of your gem slots with level 6’s.
  • Empire Defense starts getting added at level 10 and will continue through the levels. Legion Defense never rises after level 6.
  • The amount difference between the Topaz (special) and regular gems starts to close down as you increase in levels.
  • The gem set bonus is still the most important thing with this set, until you get up to level 13+. Always make sure you have enough gems to complete the bonus (even if it’s with a level 6 gem).
  • The new gem levels DO add more points for research sockets. However, at this point, it is fairly useless to use them in this manner.

As we receive more information on higher levels, we will continuously update this information.

Tier 7 Research Costs

Game of War released Tier 7 (and soft released tier 8 – they’re too expensive to obtain still) troops recently. With the release of these troops, there are a few very important things that people need to realize : You do NOT HAVE to level up all of the research to get the RESOURCE REDUCTION on troop training and trap training maxed.

The only levels required to be completed in order to open up level 10 of troop/trap cost reduction are levels 1-3 in the tree. While all fillers and traps will want to be working towards getting more ultimate combat research completed, this is the most important research to get done as it will vastly reduce the cost to build troops to fill rallies with.

Here is a graphic displaying the costs of completing all T7 troop/trap types and levels 1-10 of RSS cost reduction :

VIP 60 (and beyond) Released

Game of War released new VIP levels – VIP level 51 through VIP level 60.

Important Note : Lots of people are confused by the fact that the VIP screen now shows up to VIP level 100. This appears to have been a “soft release” for VIP 100 – in that it is in the game, but it is NOT YET ACHIEVABLE. Everything above level 60 is EXTREMELY out of reach at this time.

The most important addition with VIP level 51 and above is the addition of Resolute Defense to the stats gained by leveling it. The other combat stats are, admittedly, very high. But the Resolute Defense is the game changer in this release. It is not debuffable at this point – which means that stacking Resolute Defense is the absolute best way to defend your Stronghold. Most rally leads are finding it incredibly difficult to burn anyone with a decent amount of Resolute Defense (currently, the only way to gain this stat is through Research Sockets and VIP 51+).

Full Stats Provided by VIP 50 through VIP 60

We have included the stats for VIP 61 (as well as the amount of points it takes) to show how out of reach it is. In addition to being incredibly high on points required, the boosts from it are not that game changing – so even if someone wanted to get the massive amount of packs necessary, it would not be game breaking.

Core Setups Updated, Mythic Flawless Rune Stats (Glitched) Now Updated

MYTHIC FLAWLESS RUNE UPDATE : The original stats released were bugged. For the first night, the Mythic Flawless runes did indeed have an extra zero added to them.

New Runes – Mythic Flawless Runes, New Info on Troop Gear Upgrades

Game of War released new runes tonight – the Mythic Flawless rune set. This set, not surprisingly, increases the stats available by quite a bit. The attack and health amounts are in the billions on these runes alone, as well as including a large amount of defense debuffs (and, thankfully, defenses).

MYTHIC FLAWLESS RUNE UPDATE : The original stats released were bugged. For the first night, the Mythic Flawless runes did indeed have an extra zero added to them.

Troop Gear Upgrades

Additionally, further testing has shown that equipping your Inquisitor’s Research Gear to do your troop gear upgrades will reduce the cost on it.

This is a HIDDEN reduction, in that it doesn’t reflect on the price shown – but if you track the Spinel cost per level you will see the difference.

Research Sockets vs. Mythical Liberator Gem Sets Analyzed

One of the most frequent questions we’ve seen since the release of Mythical Liberator Gem Sets is fairly simple – would you rather use the Topaz in your gear or in your research sockets (when you’re short on them)?

The following graphic shows the stats provided by filling every research socket with a Level 6 Mythical Liberator Topaz. In total, that would take 84 Topaz to fully complete your Research Sockets and receive all the bonuses. We’ve also shown how many Topaz you would need for every level moving up to the “maxed” point.

Mythical Liberator Gem Set vs. Research Sockets Stats

Research Sockets vs Mythical Liberator Gem Set Stats

As you can see by the graphic, you get a massive amount of attack, legion defense, and empire TDD from having 7 full sets of Mythical Liberator gem sets. The research socket stats are GREAT, but the additional amount given by having “only” seven sets of the Liberator gem sets cannot be passed on.

The answer is quite simple, once you look at the chart :
Fill your gear with 7 sets of Liberator Gem Sets first. Then move to your Research Sockets.

New Feature – Troop Gear

Game of War released a new feature – Troop Gear levels. These are levels of BASE BOOSTS that apply to your all of your troops. These apply even when your hero is not present.

How Troop Gear Ranks Work

  • There are 9 different kinds of “Troop Gear” – three offensive, three defensive, and three health based.
  • You use a new item called “Lustrous Spinel” to advance through the levels.
  • Each type of Troop Gear has 10 Ranks – each rank has 10 levels in it. This means that there are 100 total levels for every type of troop gear.
  • As you level your Troop Gear to higher ranks, the amount of stats given per level ramps up.
  • The cost of leveling each type of troop gear never changes. Every level is the same Lustrous Spinel cost, from 1-100.
  • This means there is NO REASON TO SAVE YOUR AUTOMATIC LEVEL ITEMS (Arrowhead – Offensive, Armor Scale – Defensive, Lasso – Health). The cost is the same to go from level 98 to 99 as it is to go from 8 to 9. Use these items as soon as you get them.

Stay tuned for our guide to Troop Gear, which will be released very shortly.

New Feature – Research Sockets

Game of War released a game breaking new mechanic – Research Sockets. These work by allowing you to place Gems into your various research trees to increase your stats.

How it works :

  • There are three types of Points :
    • Honor Points – Red
    • Valor Points – Blue
    • Glory Points – Green
  • You gain points by Embedding gems into your various research trees.
  • You gain the most points by adding Special Gems into each slot. Fourth slot gems (star gems) add all three types of points. Standard gems only add one type of point.
  • This means that the most efficient way to get up to the maximum amount of the boosts is by using all Mythical Liberator Topaz.
  • If you don’t have enough Liberator Gems, you can also use Mythical Divine gems. However, this will not allow you to hit the maximum amount of boosts.

Stay tuned for more information as well as updated Gem Set information!
