VIP 31 to 35 and New Powerforged Gear!

Game of War has released higher levels of VIP (31, 32, 33, 34, and 35) with ever increasing levels of combat stats.  While the combat stats are appreciated, the key feature released is actually “One Click Core Set Power Up”.  Yes, the immense level of pain our thumbs and fingers have endured to boost gear has finally come to an end (Thank You).

Similar to how you equip gems to a core set shortly after crafting, you will now be able to one click power up your cores.

To help simplify the core crafting and gear boosting process further, Game of War has released the Powerforged Gear Set.  This new set combines the core crafting stats of the Salvagers Set with the core boosting stats of the Power Shaman Set.  Key variance in the stats to note is that the new Powerforged Gear set provides 4% higher Core Duration but a 10% lower Core Essence Cost Reduction.

Update : The cost reduction has been fixed and is equal now.

For majority of our rally leaders, the 10% decrease in the Core Essence Cost Reduction is negligible.  If you plan to one click boost your cores, we highly recommend that you replace the Salvagers Set and the Power Shaman Set with the Powerforged Set.

As a best practice, please ensure you embed the Aegis Defense Gem Set or the highest Troop Defense gems available to ensure you are not at risk in the event you forget to change gear before logging off.

 

Avatar Collection Set Bonus Released

For many of us, completing an avatar set has become one of those down time activities or just an annoyance to clear from the item inventory list 😉

With the latest release from Game of War, the collectors have been rewarded and others have been motivated to collect them to gain incredible battle stats.  Key point to note — you will need to purchase a single pack that will allow you to PERMANENTLY keep the battle stats from ALL completed sets.  Once you have all the avatars from a set you will EARN the “Set Bonus”…See images below

Each set has specific stats that apply to a certain aspect of the game.  For example, the Beast Masters Set provides over 1,000% Troop Attack while the Renegades Set provides 200% Health Debuff, 400% Defense Debuff, and 50% Wood Generation.

New Building – The Pantheon

Game of War released a new building tonight – the Pantheon.

The Pantheon allows you to use items called “Tributes” – which come in packs – to provide various boosts to your attacking army. You need one Tribute per troop in your army. If you are running two boosts (which becomes available at level 21 Pantheon), you will need two Tributes per troop in your Army.

The boosts provided increase in power and more open up as you level the building. This is the chart showing the requirements (Divine Marble cost), boost amounts, and when various boosts open up for the Pantheon. As more information becomes available, we will update this chart.

Comprehensive Trap Guide – Part 1 Released

We have released Part 1 of our guide to trapping in Game of War. The guide will cover everything you need to know to dominate trapping in your kingdom and KvKs.

Part 1 covers the basics – setting up the bones of your trap. Building selection, building boosts, and research. It includes all of the math and reasoning behind the decisions we make when setting up our trap to be as razor-thin min/maxed as possible.

This will be a multi-part series that is constantly being updated. Stay tuned for more details.

To see the guide, go here :

Enjoy – and don’t forget to discuss the finer points of the guide on our Forums!

    This was mainly in preparation for the massive Trap Guide we will be releasing. With the massive rally sizes and new research/building levels available, traps need to truly optimize to set themselves apart and dominate their kingdom. The trap guide will attempt to help with that.

    Stay tuned!

    Gear Workshop Level 27-30!

    As expected, GOW has added new levels for the Gear Workshop.  See below charts for the requirements and total raw power cost by GW level along with max boosts applicable.  You can now power your cores to level 20 at the top end.  For the sake of our thumbs, lets hope GOW adds an auto power cores feature very soon.  You can expect to tap over 140 times to max power gear…ouch 🙁

    As always, stay connected…we work hard so you can play harder!

    Update – Garrison Promotion Queue Fixed

    As an update to previous information, Game of War has fixed the Training Garrison – you can now promote an unlimited amount of troops as advertised by the VIP levels.

    While it seems like this is just an update that will reduce clicking (by a lot) for lots of people – there is also a more complex result of this change, as well.

    This means that traps can now instantly change their troop types when an incoming rally is marching. Rally leaders need to use extra caution for this during this weekend’s KVK – savvy traps that have the funds for it will undoubtedly be using this. For now, the best way to prevent this from happening as a rally leader is to not equip the cores you are running until right before you march. They will still be able to swap if they get a scout on you, but this at least keeps you from broadcasting what type you’re spending.

    Good luck in the KvK this weekend!
