Hero Skills have been released for a while now, with even a new batch of offensive Skills released recently. But which skills are best in certain situations? In this article I while detail a number of situations and sketch a number of ways on which Skills are most useful in each. Some are very straightforward, others require some more thought. In the end, this will not be a long or difficult read, but could be helpful to some…
For most levels in campaign, attacking them is straightforward. You select an army and hero to attack, attack, and presto….you either win or lose. Whatever the case, the next time you attack that camp, the camp has been reset and all Goblins are there again.
But on the boss levels, this is different, and losing on those maps will leave the remaining Goblin force waiting for you for the next round of combat. How many Goblins still stand is indicated by the boss health bar when you click on the level.
It is been long known that finishing off the boss levels in multiple attacks also gives (potentially) much higher High Scores, if done properly. But not many people know how or why this is. In this article, I will provide some information on why this is and how can you can figure out your best attack pattern.
Finally the Best Sets article has the level 2 Legendaries added to it. As I predicted, the best sets are pretty much identical to those before, just with the level 1’s swapped for levels 2. Remember this for when higher levels are announced and the article isn’t updated immediately (assuming the trend from 1 to 2 continues in 3). The top 30 images will be added tomorrow.
I know one of the articles desperate in need for an update (again) is the Best Sets article. Although containing all level 1 Legendary gear, the level 2 upgrades haven’t been included yet. Now I have two things to say…or three basically, if you count “I’m gonna do them don’t worry“.
First, because ALL the new gear is basically just the level 1 Legendary gear slightly improved (not even basically actually, just fact), I still believe the Best Sets article at the moment is still relevant enough to use, at least as a starting point. I honestly do not expect any major changes when adding in the level 2’s.
That said, I am gonna update them, but as I have been away for some time, I’m not 100% sure which level 2’s have already been introduced. So what I am asking here is to describe in the comments what pieces have been released, and there base stats and specific Hero bonus. The four bonus attributes are already covered in the Hero equipment article, so I don;t need that, unless you find errors in them of course.
Thanks for being patient and see you soon with an updated article.
So, the second the last pieces of Legendary Gear I have been introduced, Kabam has introduced the level II Gears already on their forum, and a level II piece as the prize of the current Masters season 2. And all I can think is: Slow down! The rate of introducing new content and features is in my opinion way too high at the moment.
People haven’t gotten a normal chance to catch up with even level I gear and level II is already introduced/foreshadowed? Why not wait with this for a month or 2 (at least)? This way the game is becoming really unattractive to non-spenders, and even to people like me who spend a little (really not that much) it is getting hard to keep up, certainly not helped by the near constant premiums and the changes to Tokens on which I’ll post shortly.
Anyways, the Gears II have been added to the Hero Equipment article, although the base Attack and Life values weren’t given yet on the forum. They will be filled in and taken into account in the Best Sets article when they are truly introduced into the game, which I hop isn’t too soon. That said, the Gear II is pretty unimaginative, basically being level I Gears with the 3* attribute changed to a 4* one. So expect little changes to overall Best Sets in that regard as well…
So I’m giving this its own post, as I want to keep the main Hero Equipment page mostly about the available sets, certainly with all the new sets added to the game. Below is a chart with the percentages bonus each of the currently 4 Tiers of equipment bonus do, from level 1 to level 10.
The four Tiers (marked *1-*4 in KABAM emails) start out at 1%, 2%, 4% and 8% bonus respectively, but can grow to considerable amounts if you happen to be lucky enough to get gear at level 10! Use this as a reference for determining end-game gear specs, or whatever you like :). Thanks to QuietschEnte for confirming the numbers!
So for my post on training Tier 4 troops, I made this nice little flowchart which showed the relations and dependencies between buildings and research which you need in order to train Tier 4 troops. I decided I would do the same for ALL buildings in Kingdoms of Middle Earth, but this time up to level 10. This is because the dependencies change in runecrafting mode. So without further delay, the below two charts show the dependencies for all buildings in your cities.
