Hey again everyone. Thanks of the tips so far and the great guides on here. Some of them are way over my head, but I have been trying to wade through them. Checking in and seeing if I can get any more custom advice for where I’m at now.
What I’ve done so far:
- Heros are level 10-15
- Worker is upgrading Hero Temple to Level 8 (all other structures are maxed, except for my library is at level 3 and gold temple is level 8).
- Maxed out on towers, barricades, path length, and low-level decorations.
- 5 Odysseys completed
- Hero items are almost all gold
- Barricades are levels 10-11
- Towers are levels 2-11
- Best hero on AP takes 2:32 to take down gate
- Splitting my time between more odysseys and raiding to build a Nyx tower.
- Mainly building up Jason and Perseus currently.
I am including screenshots to help show where I’m at. Happy to answer any questions that the above list or screenshots don’t answer.
My weaknesses I could probably use some help with:
I know I need to improve my defenses. I keep sinking money into them and experimenting. I take screenshots of an opponent’s setup when I get defeated and see if I can duplicate it, but it never seems to work as well for me. Maybe they just spent a lot more resources on theirs? My current setup is not an attempt to duplicate anything, just the best I could come up with in my own experiments.
I really don’t understand the items yet. I read some guides, but everyone uses acronyms and seems to be talking over my head a little. I don’t even know what all the icons mean. So, I have been just focusing on getting gold items for everyone and selecting the items that have the highest numbers, slanted towards health and damage. I have noticed that I am vulnerable to some attacks more than others (like poison), but I’m not clear on the best way to fix that.
I really don’t understand forging. I have been doing it, but I have basically just been trying to level up colors. I know that I am probably making stupid choices, but when I try to read about how to do better, it seems to go over my head again. Can anyone break down what someone at my level should be doing specifically? I’m not stupid, but you can talk to me like I am with this answer, because apparently that’s what it takes, lol.
I am loving the game. I have been playing tower defense games for a while, but this is the first time I have gotten into any game this complex. It is a lot to wrap your head around. I think I am picking it up fairly quickly, but I expect to be around for the long haul and I want to get as good as I can get.
Lastly, are there any tricks for recruiting members to my alliance? I know I should have just joined an existing one, but I had already created one and invested in it before I figured that out. Now that I have it leveled up and ranked 870 on the board, I am trying to make the best of it. I would invite the players who I run into with good defenses, but that seems like I am trying to steal folks away and I don’t want to step on any toes. I started a Facebook group for my alliance to see if I could recruit any new players from social media. Wondering what else I can do.
Thanks again for being willing to help us new folks!
