Gem Embedding enables players to make their gear perform even better in war, enhancing attack, defense, and/or march sizes. But the higher level runes are difficult to acquire, as it takes to 1 year and 8 months to just farm one level 6 Gem from scratch with the picks regenerating for free. Although we are helped by Gem Shards and Gems in chests and tournaments, it’s still inefficient to just start combining them to level 6 Gems, so choices have to be made.
In this article, I will look at what the Gems do in each gear piece type, what gear should be Embedded first, and how to most efficiently upgrade Gems along the way.
Another addition to the beginners articles; in this article are listed virtually ALL in-game items you will encounter playing Kingdoms of Middle Earth. From chests, to Hero’s Glory, and from Hobbit building crew to Rune of Fury, this list gives an extensive overview of the items you use in the game, what they do exactly, and what they cost if you want to buy them in the shop (provided of course the item is for sale). Items are listed in the categories: Battle, XP, Campaign, Hourglasses, Chests, Construction and Resources, Tournaments and Various . Hop on in!
It has been just over a week since I posted you should hold on to your (now) Galadriel’s Tokens, and behold, last Friday came the moment to show the truth behind it all. Following all kinds of deals and tournaments for the upcoming release of “The Desolation of Smaug”, the Premium chance game went on sale for 1 token to play!
Now, it had only been 16 days from the previous sale, so only 16 tokens could be saved, but I got extremely lucky, and won TWO Token chests over the course of playing the Premium chance game! Take into account the Tokens inside the chests you win with the game, I spend roughly 150 tokens, without a dollar spend. Then to top it off, 2nd, 3rd and 4th city deeds could be traded for even more tokens, and the number rose to just below 200 tokens! Read on to see what I won with those and why it ABSOLUTELY WORTH saving those tokens for these kind of Premium chance deals…
Galadriel’s Gift (previously Gollum’s Riddle) is a great way to obtain some of the most powerful items in the game. Besides troops you can train yourself, many items are exclusive to either Galadriel’s Gift, or chests and special events, which are not always around. That’s why it is important to spend them correctly.
Strategy is courtesy Rat_Farts, who mailed it around. So apparently, Galadriel’s Gift appears to be less RNG than expected, and patterns emerge in consecutive results.
Strategy to obtain your second city deed is as follows (though, if this works, you could use it for any item you want): Collect a fairly large number of Tokens, so you can play the game a large number of times in a row (see also here). Now when playing the riddles, look closely at the position of the deed in each result. According to some, there is likely to be a pattern that emerges which makes you able to correctly guess where the deed will go next game around 50% of the time.
I have no clue if this works, but if someone is successful in this, please let me know in the comments!
