The Dragonville Grind

admin No Comments

When we build our accounts, we put time and money into them. Most of us want to see our investment go a long way, and to be able to successfully play without emptying our pockets. Recently with the release of Dragon War Dimension, players have found a new old love.
To many, the Dragon War Dimension is reminiscent of old school Game of War and players are in love with this aspect. The pace is definitely slower, and there are many differences from the Demigod Dimension. One of the things that players currently appreciate about the Dragon War Dimension is the ability to spend minimally and be successful. Grinding in the Dragon War Dimension can take you a long way.
On a budget, or missing the old days? Read on, where we will cover multiple aspects of the Dragon War Dimension and how you can grind and be successful. We will also include some of our favorite tips and tricks that we have come across!
The Dragonville Grind
Welcome to the Dragonville Grind. Get your fingers ready and let’s get to clicking!
The events in Dragon War Dimension give excellent prizes. You should definitely be sure to watch events and periodically check linked events on the Demigod side. Below, we will list some events to look out for. Remember, the events are constantly changing, so keep your eyes open.
Dragon Side Events

Monster Event – There is typically a linked monster event going on. You can obtain prizes for this event, but note they are for the Demigod side. So if you do not need these items, don’t waste your energy on killing monsters to complete these. With some of the KvK events once again including Monster killing, you want to be sure to save excess energy for these events.
Build Event – This is another linked event, but it does offer prizes on the Dragon War Dimension side as well, such as Speed Ups, Dark Energy, Resources, Loyalty, Daily Chances, and Gathering Speed Boosts. If you are looking to level up your Stronghold on the Dragon Side, it may be worth doing it in conjunction with this event. (Remember to stop until it resets once you hit the prizes!)
Dragon Den Event – Are you looking to level up your Dragon? If so, do it in conjunction with this linked event. This will give prizes in both the Demigod and Dragon War Dimensions. On the Demigod Side you will get things such as Boost Creation Components and More. On the Dragon Side you will obtain Hero XP, VIP Points, Dark Energy, and Speed Ups.
Speed Dungeon Events– Get to hitting your Speed Dungeon Monster.These events give you the opportunity to earn March Speed Ups, Resources, Gem Savers, and Daily Chances.
KvK Events – These are not linked events, typically, but it is very important to complete them. They typically give some of the best prizes, including but not limited to ports, gold, Speed Ups, Hero Energy, and Resources. Of course, the most sought-after prizes of Gold and Advanced Teleports are the third prize, and the most difficult to obtain.
Recovery Events – Recovery Events typically come after Kill events or KvK events. These events will give a variety of good prizes to work towards obtaining, and usually are not linked.
Alliance Events – Alliance Events are great to work towards, as the prizes include things like Gear gifts, VIP gifts, and Hero gifts. These events are done as a team, so you only earn the prizes if you participate (keeping the slackers from riding on the hard work of others).

Demigod Linked Events
On the Demigod side, there will be linked events where you can earn prizes for your Dragon War Dimension account, so it is important to check in and make sure that you are getting the most out of these events to help your Dragon Growth. Here you can earn RSS, Hero Energy, and more. We hear of some people that disappear into the “underworld,” never to be heard from again, but do not forget to check the Demigod Linked events!
Grind your Hero
Your Dragonville Hero is waiting to lead you to victory. However, in order to do so, you must level that Hero up. In order to be able to wear Gear or have more skill points for stat increases, it is necessary to level up your Hero. While there are many ways to obtain Hero XP, there are some tricks and tips to help you level faster.
Where to Get Hero XP

Alliance Gifts
Some Empire Quests
Alliance, VIP, and Daily
Attacking or Defending
Completing tasks around your City such as building or researching

Tricks and Tips: Attacking will help you to get a lot of experience. Additionally, you can receive materials to help when attacking! So be on the lookout for others to attack.
The Resource Grind
Resources are the core of our grind to improve. Just about everything in Game of War requires ever-valuable Resources. We have some tricks and tips to help make sure that you are getting the most out of your resources.
Resource Tricks and Tips

Food is the trickiest resource you will run into. Gathering Food will put it straight into your stores, so if you have a hungry army, it will be gone in no time. There are boosts and skills you can use to help with your resources, but if your army is consuming more then you are producing, it will be gone. Due to this, make sure that you only open food bundles as you need them.
Tiles aren’t great for food since your army will just eat it, but they are a great way to gather other resources. Also, if your army is not consuming all your food, then gather away. Make sure you check frequently to make sure your troops have not returned home while you were away.
Only open resource items as you need them, to avoid being farmed.
Complete Quests.
If you do not mind the power and are looking for more resources, be sure to complete Economics Research.

The Gear and Gem Grind
We all love Gear, and a great thing about the Dragon War Dimension right now is that you do not necessarily have to purchase packs to get Gear. While it takes time to level up your Hero to use the better Gear, you can start working towards getting the materials you need from day one.

Kill and Hit Monsters
Collect Monster Tiles
Open Alliance Gifts
Speed Dungeon

The VIP Grind
VIP is also essential. Not only does VIP help with all of your city functions, it also provides stats and some other special features. So making sure that you are moving that VIP up to utilize it to its fullest is essential.
Find VIP here:

Alliance Gifts
Daily Logins

The Loyalty Grind
Loyalty is not new to Game of War, but the extent that it is used is new. Needless to say, earning Loyalty and saving it up is super important. You can purchase a lot of different items in the Alliance Store with Loyalty.
Where to Find Loyalty:

Alliance Quests
Hitting and Killing Monsters
Alliance Gifts

Grind, Grind, Grind
Overall, there are several things you should be doing on a daily basis to get the most out of your Dragon War Dimension Account. We will list some of those things below.
The Daily Grind

Open Alliance Gifts – These expire every 24 hours and you do not want to miss out on them. They will give materials, Gold, VIP, Hero XP, and more. In addition, the more gifts your alliance opens, the higher your gift level becomes. The higher your gift level, the better gifts you get.
Kill Monsters – Log in, hit or kill monsters with the energy you have saved, log out and let energy build back up, repeat.
Complete Alliance, VIP, and Daily Quests – These give resources, Hero XP, Gold, and Loyalty, so they are great to complete. Some have theorized that if you complete them in order, you get better quests each time. Try it out and let us know if it’s true.
Complete Empire Quests – These give different items that are useful; however, use caution! These also give a lot of power, so if you are looking to stay low power then DO NOT collect these.
Gather – When you are not out Monster Hunting, be sure to have your marches out gathering. Whether it be on Resource or Monster Tiles, you can easily send your army out in a few seconds and log back out.
Log in – Do NOT DO NOT, forget to log in every day. By logging in every day, you increase your login streak for VIP, and you can collect those Alliance gifts at the same time.

Don’t forget the Blessings
The Dragon War Dimension now has blessings for Economic and Combat Purposes. If you are planning on doing some work and could use the extra boost reach out to your fellow Alliance members and ask for a Blessing!
Current Economic Blessings Available:

Training Speed and Troop Queue Blessing
Research Speed Blessing
Construction Speed Blessing
Production Speed to Resource Capacity Blessing

Simply put, there are a lot of ways that you can work to optimize what is available to you in the Dragon War Dimension. We have put some of our favorite grinding methods and tips and tricks above. Comment below with the tips and tricks you have found!

Rallying in Dragon Realm

admin No Comments

While attacking other cities with a solo is tons of fun, rallying gets the whole team involved. You can hit bigger targets, get more kills, and learn more about the game if you are filling for a more experienced Rally Lead. With this article we, will take a quick look on how to fill rallies and other basic information for players of all experience levels in the Dragon Realm. With that, let’s get started!
Filling Rallies
Most people will be filling rallies before you will be setting rallies. So let’s go over some basic information about filling rallies.
Check for Teleports and March Speeds
First, you will want to pay attention to the alliance chat. The rally lead will more than likely post coordinates for the target, and you want to port as close to the target as possible. This will reduce the March time. Rally leads do not like to have their rallies held back because a march is taking over an hour to get to the rally! If you are not able to port close to the target, you should always ask if the rally lead still wants you to fill. This is common rally-filling etiquette. If you do not have March Speeds to speed your own march, then you should always ask if fellow alliance members are able and willing to help speed your march into the rally. You may need to wait until a closer target is found.
Make sure you fill with the same Troops!
So you see a notification pop up about a rally that has started, and you confirm you can port close. Click on the Hall of War. There, you will see the Rally Owner and the Rally Target. Multiple rallies may be going on, so make sure you click the correct rally! Now once you open, you’ll be able to see what you should fill with. Always make sure the troops you send match the troops the rally lead has sent! You can ask in chat, or you can click on the very first filler, and the troops already sent can be seen.
Unlock and Claim Slots
The first three slots of the rally are always open. If you are not one of the first three fillers, you will have to unlock a slot and claim it for yourself. This will require you to have War Commissions. Once you claim your own slot and fill, you can go back in and unlock additional slots for other alliance members if anyone needs the help.
Send your troops and speed others if you can!
Once you have selected your troops and send the march, see if anyone else may need some help speeding in their marches. If you are able to port close to the target, then you more than likely do not need to use any additional march speeds. However, if other alliance members asked for help previously, then check and see if you have march speeds that you can help get them in faster. Remember to pay it forward!
After the Rally Hits
Once the rally hits, you will instantly get a report. If the rally lead was capped, there will be no returning troops. If the entire march was not killed by the target, then you may need to wait for troops to return back to your stronghold.
A Few Things to Remember When Filling Rallies

You can fill multiple rallies at a time, but you can only send out as many marches as your city allows. So if you only have four marches, you can only fill four rallies.
You can not shield your city while you have marches out in rallies. If you feel that you are in danger of burning, fill the rally then port away from the action.
If you are filling multiple rallies, make sure you are paying attention to all the troops needed to fill and all the march times!
Although the rallies are shown in the alliance tag at the bottom of the screen, it is much faster to fill and speed using the Hall of War.
If you have questions, always ask your rally lead. Trust me when I say that Leads would rather answer questions than have to continuously reset rallies because someone was too scared to ask what to do.

The most important thing to remember is to have fun! Filling rallies together with your alliance makes your team stronger, and it is an opportunity to learn more about the game. If you have any tips to share, please add them in the comment section below to help out other players!

Dragon War Dimension Purchasing

admin No Comments

The Dragon War Dimension, much like the Demigod Dimension, comes with its own features and costs. There is no doubt that when playing Game of War, the cost and the packs can at times be overwhelming. Knowing where to spend money and what to buy is important, as it influences the type of player you are and your play style.
It can be difficult to know what to buy, as packs change frequently and always have a different number of items in them. In addition, in the Dragon War Dimension, packs often come with items for one feature of the game and then Resources and Gold, so you essentially have to buy separate packs for each feature.
This guide is intended to give you some tips and tricks about choosing the packs you purchase and making sure you get the most bang for your buck.
Pack Purchasing in the Dragon War Dimension
There are so many tips we can give to help you optimize your purchases in the Dragon War Dimension. Probably one of the biggest we can give is to never pay full price for a pack! By utilizing Amazon Coins, you can purchase packs at a discount and save yourself some money (which for many will honestly go towards the next pack).
The next top tip we have for you before we go into detail is one that feels obvious, but is not. Never spend beyond your means. Many of us have seen in the news stories on individuals who have embezzled money or gotten money through illegal means to purchase their Game of War Packs. Based off the fact that this was in the news, it obviously did not end well!
Picking your Purchases
As mentioned above at times the number of packs can be overwhelming. Picking what to buy can feel like a chore in and of itself so we have some tips for you when contemplating what to purchase.
Tip 1: Never ever (even if you say “never say never”) buy the first pack you see. 
Often when you see the pack with the item you are looking for, it is tempting to grab it right then. However, this is not the best way to go about purchasing your pack. At times, the wait is worth it. Watch the packs and see what they do. Sometimes one pack will offer 20 items and 15 minutes later it will offer 50 items. So make sure that you are getting the most out of your money by buying the best packs available.
Tip 2: Be intentional about what you are buying.
Before you pick your purchase, know what you are buying and what it will do for you. For example, Athena’s Armory Unlock will open up set bonuses. However, unlocking it will only open Legendary Set Bonuses. In order to get set bonuses at every other level, you have to level it up to level 6. Doing this takes a total of 500 scrolls. So knowing whether or not you will be able to level it up fully or craft legendary gear is essential in knowing whether this is a good purchase for you. If you cannot afford to open the other set bonuses and know it will be a while before you can get legendary gear, it may be more beneficial for you to choose another pack.
Tip 3: Know the cost
As referenced above, everything has a cost. If you are working on a limited pack budget, do your best to talk to people who already have that feature or have completed that research. The reason for this is that they can tell you what kind of cost to expect. This ties in with Tip 2 of be intentional about what you are buying.
Tip 4: Know the benefits and whether or not it is worth it.
What exactly does this feature do? Do you really need it? If you are already capping or burning people, is this something that is a priority? Many times when excited about new features, players will go buy them and quickly discover they did not actually need it.
This is another situation where “wait and see” is very beneficial. When the Mercenaries were released, many players went and bought them and tested them, to find that these troops are essentially what many have referred to as “Super Farmers.” While this is great for players who spend a lot of time farming, many players soon forgot about these and dismissed them as not worth it.
Once again, going back to Tip 2 of being intentional. Part of being intentional is knowing how the feature works, and sometimes this means that you have to wait until other players have had time to test it out and play with it.
Tip 5: Is it a need or a want?
Combine All. It is a lovely feature and saves fingers and tons of clicking. However, when on a limited budget, it is necessary to assess whether something is a need or a want. When you look at the pack with the Combine All Unlock, if the Combine All is all you are getting, it may not be the best purchase to choose.
However, if you are seriously lacking in gear (which gives a ton of stats in the Dragon War Dimension) then it actually is a good purchase. Here’s why: Combine All is not necessary, so if that was all you were getting, it would be better to choose a different pack. However, if you really looked at that pack when it is up, you will also note that it has 5k Sentinel, Arbiters, and Hunter’s Gear Chests, making this purchase very worth it for players who need gear.
Tip 6: Check the RealTips Website or Line and Discord Rooms
When new features are released, we do our best to be able to update you as quickly as possible. However, also be aware that sometimes it may take a little time. Always check our articles here or hop over to our community rooms and give us a shout-out. I can tell you that even if we do not have the answer right away, someone in the rooms will, and typically we can direct you to who that is (and learn something new ourselves!)
Tip 7: Participate in our Monthly Events
Every month, we have an event where the winner receives a gift card. These events vary from month to month and are hopefully always fun! The winner receives a 25-dollar gift card. While this may not seem like a lot, it is 25 dollars that you can put towards your next purchase.
Tip 8: Watch for events and holidays
Many times when there is an event or holiday coming up, the packs get slightly better. Special packs for the event or holiday will be released. These are definitely packs you will want to look into. In addition, if you know KvK is coming, keep an eye out for recovery packs, as these are very helpful at times as well.
Tip 9: Use Loyalty and Black Market Currency Wisely
Watch the Black Market. Sometimes it has some useful items in it. Also, make sure you are spending your Black Market Currency wisely. One of the things I have found myself spending Black Market Currency on is Advanced Teleports. Since these ports can be difficult and costly to obtain, I believe that to be a good use of my Black Market Coins.
Loyalty takes a while to rack up. Make sure you are completing events and doing whatever you can in order to increase the amount of Loyalty you have. In addition, make sure that you spend your loyalty wisely. Whether you use them for ports or shields, be intentional about it.
Tip 10: Try to talk yourself out of it!
This is probably one of the best tips we can give. This tip combines every other tip above. If you are looking at a pack, consider all of the tips we have already given, and make yourself a checklist.

Do I need this or want it?
How will it boost my account?
Is it worth it?
Am I able to purchase enough packs to get it to the level I need?
Have I educated myself on this?
Is this something that I can maybe get in the Black Market or with Loyalty?
Is there a Holiday or event coming up so I can watch for better packs?

After you have read all of the tips and considered everything possible, try to talk yourself out of buying the pack using the answers to these questions. If you can justify why your account can wait on that purchase or does not need it, then consider not buying yet or picking another feature that will do more for you!
Sometimes deciding what to buy can be as difficult as figuring out how to build. We at Teamrealtips want to be sure that you are buying effectively and building effectively so that you can get the most out of the game! If you have questions, please ask, and know that we are here for you, our Community.

Dragonville Gear Guide

admin No Comments

Gear is an essential part of gameplay in Game of War. The stats for gear can make or break you as a player. Knowing what gear to choose and what the requirements are for the gear are just as important as the gear itself, so that you can prepare your Hero to equip the gear it needs.

Knowing what gear to use and in which instance is important to every player. Not only can gear save us time, it can save us money. This article will cover every piece of gear that is currently available in the Dragon War Dimension. In addition, we will look at the levels it requires to be able to equip and craft different pieces of gear. However, to make things a little more simple for you, check out the table below.

Arbiter’s Gear Set
Arbiter’s Gear is one of the gear sets that takes more time to get. In addition, this gear is unable to be equipped or crafted before Hero Level 40.
Arbiter’s Gear provides the following stats:

Troop Attack Bonus
Troop Defense Bonus
Troop Health Bonus
Attack March Speed

For players who are able to level their hero to 40, this is a great choice for attack and defense gear. Sentinel’s Gear Set
Sentinel’s Gear is one of the other sets of gear that is a little more difficult to obtain. This gear is able to be equipped at Hero 30.
Stats you will find in Sentinel’s Gear:

Troop Defense Bonus
Trap Attack
Troop Health Bonus
Troop Load

This Gear is great for defense players who are looking for some extra defense and stats for their Wall Traps. 
Hunter’s Gear Set
Hunter’s Gear set is able to be equipped and crafted at different gear levels. However, many of these levels are lower, making this a good gear set for players looking for some combat stats mixed with monster hunting stats.
Stats you can find in the Hunter’s Gear Set:

Troop Defense Bonus
Troop Health Bonus
Hero Critical Hit
Maximum Energy Limit
Hero Attack Streak Modifier
Hero Monster March Speed Bonus
Loot Tile Gather Speed
Gathering March Speed Bonus

This gear is best for all things monster, but does have some additional benefits that can prove to be helpful as well.
Assassin’s Gear Set
The Assassin’s Gear set is unable to be crafted or equipped until it reaches level 40. This gear threw us all back with the Kunai; however, for those of you suffering from Kunai Flashbacks, no worries, this is not the Kunai that could not be burned.
Stats you will find in Assassin’s Gear:

Empire Assault Attack
Empire Assault Defense
Empire Assault Health
Troop Load
Attack March Speed
Gathering March Speed Bonus

This gear will definitely be one that defensive players with higher-level heroes will want to check out!
Demigod Blue Fire Gear Set
The Demigod Blue Fire Gear Set is able to be equipped and crafted at Hero Level 10. This Gear is a little easier to obtain then other sets, but the stats are not as good as gear sets that you can equip at a higher Hero level.
Stats you will find in the Demigod Blue Fire Gear Set:

Troop Attack Bonus
Troop Defense Bonus
Troop Health Bonus
Troop Load
Attack March Speed

Beastmaster’s Gear Set
This Gear set is able to be equipped and crafted at Hero Level 24. This Set is purely for Monster Hunting. While our Hunter’s Gear is for Monster Hunting as well, this set adds in stats not seen in the Hunter’s Gear Set. If you are a monster hunter, this gear is definitely worth checking out. 
Vindicator’s Set Gear
Vindicator’s Set Gear materials can be obtained through the Vindicator’s Gear Set Dungeon. This Gear set is unique in several ways. It has tons of Health Stats that could be beneficial to a defending empire. Additionally, this Gear Set is the first to offer any type of Debuff in the Dragon War Dimension: you can slow your attackers down with the Stronghold March Speed Debuff. The most unique aspect of this gear is the Altar Stats. Make sure you equip this gear when executing heroes for increased health and increased duration of your Altar Boosts.

Chief Inquisitor’s Gear
Chief Inquisitor’s Gear has been added. In order, to equip and craft this gear your Hero needs to be level 24. This Gear has one use and one use only! It is your Basic Research Speed Gear and will help you take down the time on your Research timers to speed the process up.

Hermes’ Winged Set
This gear can also be crafted and equipped at Hero level 24. This gear has two notable functions. This gear will help with March Speed and Troop Load. Players who are big wonder players or attackers will get more use out of this gear for the speed. If you are a player who collects a lot of their resources from tiles the big use will be increasing your troop load.
Other Gear
Below, we will cover other pieces of Gear that are not necessarily parts of a set. These gear pieces typically require lower-level heroes and give some good boosts for different functions dependent on what you are looking for. In addition, when looking for different stats, if you are able to craft legendary on some of this gear before other pieces, then it may be more beneficial to you. Below, we have broken down this additional gear into groupings by piece.
Other Helms
Other Helms include your Dark Crown, Warrior Casket, and Engineer Helm.
Notable stats provided by these helms include:

Wood Production – Dark Crown
Construction Time Reduction – Engineer Helm

Other Armors
Other Armor includes the Dark Cape, Battle Plate, and Rugged Tunic.
Notable stats from Other Armors include:

Research Speed – Dark Cape
Silver Production – Dark Cape

Commonly asked Gear Question
Should I wait until I can craft Legendary gear to craft? 
That depends. If you are planning on purchasing more to get more materials, then yes. However, if you feel that you will not be able to get more materials in a timely fashion, then you can craft at a lower grade and later work to get more stats in your gear by collecting over time.
How many materials of this color do I need to be able to get a legendary material?
Combining can take a lot in the Dragon War Dimension due to the fact that we do not have the Combine All function. Sometimes when we are combining, we begin to wonder exactly how long it will take until we are going to get a legendary material. Here’s that information:
For example, to get a White Material using Grey Material, you need 4 Grey Materials. To get a Gold material using Grey Materials, you need 1024 Grey Materials.

Should I craft at less then 100%? 
That is completely up to you. You definitely can, and at 80% you have a high likelihood of obtaining the color you are crafting for. However, if you are worried about taking chances and not getting Gear at the quality you want, then you should definitely wait for that 100%.
Should I use gear sets or do a mix match of gear? 
Once again, this is something that is player preference; however, consider any set bonuses that may exist with equipped gear when making this decision. Many traps enjoy cobbling together gear sets and picking and choosing their stats in place of picking a set. For example, my current gear includes pieces from Sentinel, War Boots, and Demigod Fire set. When looking at stats I am getting with my gear, it was carefully crafted to ensure that I was getting the stats that my individual account needed.
Athena’s Armory
Athena’s Armory is another essential part of gear. This building, when unlocked, provides different bonuses for having different sets of gear. However, you do not need to have the gear equipped. Set bonuses are now offered at various gear levels if you have the gear in your inventory. The Bonuses shown below are at the Legendary Level.

Gear provides a lot of stats in the Dragon Dimension, so make sure you are in the know on what gear is out there and that you are equipping the best for your build. Questions or thoughts? Comment below!

A Dragonville City Walkthrough

admin No Comments

Welcome to your Dragon City. While many features are similar to ones that we are used to there are also some unique ones as well. In this Guide, we will cover your Dragonville City and include all the information you need to know as you work on your setup.
We have heard the Dragon War Dimension called many things. Among the community, it has been known as “the basement,” “Dragonville,” “the Toothless Realm” (if you do not get this reference, go watch How to Train your Dragon… now), and much more. Whatever you choose to call the Dragon War Realm, it has sparked many players’ interest. Therefore, Teamrealtips will work to get guides out to you so that you can be successful as you build your city among the dragons.
A City Walkthrough
For this guide, we will be walking through the city and exploring each building and its functions. Some will be familiar, others may be new, but hopefully we will be able to give you a basic understanding of what is going on in your Dragon City.
Dragon’s Den
The Dragon’s Den is one of the very first buildings you encounter when beginning your Dragonville account. This is where your Dragon will reside. I named mine Ruby, so Ruby lives in her Den in my Dragon City.
One thing that most players have noted is that if you are not currently able to level up your Dragon, it may be better to wait to hatch it. Dragon Level Up Crystals are only available in packs, and the higher levels can be costly.
We talked some about the Dragon’s Den in Enter The Dragon Dimension. More information can be found there, but we will cover some of the basics here as well.
Dragon Facts

Leveling up your Dragon Costs Dragon Level Up Crystals.
Your Dragon has HP (Hit Points), and takes damage like your Troops do.
As HP decreases in Combat, Attack and Defense boosts will decrease with it.
Your Dragon’s stats can be customized utilizing a skill tree.
Your Dragon can join Rallies and Marches and will assist in Combat.
The Dragon must be at 100% HP to participate in Rallies or Marches.
You can send up to 9 Dragons per Rally.
Your Dragon can occupy and defend your Empire, Resource Tiles, Wonder, etc.
Your Dragon will naturally heal itself over time while it rests in the Dragon’s Den.
Instant Heal Items can be found in Special Sales.

This building maxes out at Level 2. Benefits provided by this building are:

Dragon Reinforcement Capacity: 9
Dragon March Size: 1
Dragon Rally Size: 10

The Dungeon
Every good city needs a dungeon! Where else would the monsters lurk? You certainly do not want them out among the common folks, they frighten easily. The Dungeon is your access point for your Speed Dungeon and your Explorer Dungeon. The Dungeon stays at level 1 and does not go to a higher level.
Speed Dungeon
The Speed Dungeon, we are familiar with. It is where we go to kill our Lightning Shardbeast. This beast will drop not only Speed Up items, but resources, making it a valuable asset to our cities. In addition, there have now been special dungeons added for gems and the black market, so be sure to check out that dungeon as it contains valuable treasures.
Explorer Dungeon
The Explorer Dungeon is not yet available. It is there, but is not something we have been able to access at this point. However, if it is similar to the Explorer Dungeon of the past, it will offer very helpful rewards for slaying the monsters that lie within.
Black Market
The Black Market is new to Dragonville. It needs to be unlocked, but unlike our Black Market in the Demigod Dimension, the Unlock is free. Here, you can buy different items for your Dragon City utilizing Black Market coins. These can be obtained through the Gold Store and by participating in special Black Market Events.
The Portal is where you travel between the Demigod Dimension and the “basement.” It only levels to one and its sole use is to transport you between dimensions.

The Stronghold is the center of your city. The level of your Stronghold determines most of what you are able to do and what buildings you can unlock. In addition, tapping on your Stronghold will also give you an overview of your city’s economy. The Stronghold in Dragonville currently goes to Level 30.
Stronghold Benefits
Below, you can see what benefits you receive at each Stronghold Level. Certain buildings that are dependent on your Stronghold Level are listed as well, so that you can see when these open.

The Academy
The Academy is where you complete research. Currently, we have four research trees in Dragonville:

Wall Traps

Upgrading your academy speeds up your research and also allows access to new improvements for your city. Research does add good stats to your setup, but also gives a substantial increase in Power, so if you want to stay low-power, be aware of the power that is being added by your research.

Hall of War
The Hall of War comes with its own set of abilities. This is where your rallies gather and leave from within your city, and we all love a good rally. The War is led by the Hero of the Player who initiated the Rally. By increasing the level of your Hall of War, you can increase the number of troops you can send in a given Rally at a time.

The Embassy allows you to get reinforcements from your fellow Alliance members. The owners of reinforcment Troops pay for their own upkeep. This is an important building that helps you to defend against attacks! Increasing the level of this building will allow you to get more reinforcements from your fellow Alliance members.

The Prison does not open until Stronghold Level 15. At this point, your Hero is now able to be captured and you can capture the Heroes of your Attackers. Upgrading your Prison will decrease the amount of time you need to hold your enemies heroes before being able to execute. In addition, by holding Heroes in your prison, you are able to gain additional Attack benefits based off the Level of the Prisoner. You receive these benefits at Prison Level 30.

Highest Prisoner Level 1~19- All Troop Attack 1%
Highest Prisoner Level 20~24- All Troop Attack 2%
Highest Prisoner Level 25-29- All Troop Attack 4%
Highest Prisoner Level 30~34- All Troop Attack 7%
Highest Prisoner Level 35~39- All Troop Attack 11%
Highest Prisoner Level 40~44- All Troop Attack 16%
Highest Prisoner Level 45~49- All Troop Attack 22%
Highest Prisoner Level 50+- All Troop Attack 30%

The Altar opens at Stronghold 20. This building works hand-in-hand with your Prison, as you cannot execute the Heroes in your Prison until you have an Altar. In addition, the Altar provides some great benefits when your Altar Boost is active.

The Gymnos is all about your Hero. The purpose of this building is to give your Hero an XP Bonus and to retain XP for descendant Heroes. The higher the level of this building, the better your Hero XP modifier. If you are looking for XP for your Hero leveling, this building is super important.
Gymnos Details

Our next building is the Marketplace. This building will allow you to send resources to other Alliance Members. By leveling up your Marketplace, you can increase the amount of help you can send your fellow Alliance Member and decrease the tax that you pay when sending Help. If you like to share in the wealth, this building will be a huge help.
Cinder’s Sneaky Tip: One of the reasons I love the marketplace is that if I am looking for an Alliance Mate, and they are not online, I can simply send a march of resources to them and follow the march! This could also be used for other… ummmm… covert missions. 
The Storehouse protects a portion of your resources from enemy attacks. A higher-level Storehouse will protect more resources. So if you want to keep your resources safe when you are being attacked, be sure to upgrade this building.
The Forge
Let’s be honest, this is my favorite building. Here is where you will combine materials and craft gear. You can also combine Gems here or collectibles. Leveling up the Forge will give you benefits as well, including Normal Equipment Crafting Cost Reduction, and at Level 21 you unlock your second accessory slot for gear.
The Watchtower warns you of all incoming marches targeting your city and your city’s encampments. Leveling up this building will give you further details as you progress.
Watchtower Details

15Tells you the arrival time of a March.

20Tells you the Guild of the Player sending the March.

25Gives an estimate of the total troops in the March.

30Tells you the troop types in an incoming attack.

Barracks, Hospitals, and Villas, oh my!
Traditionally we are used to our Barracks, Hospitals, and Villas offering set stats. However, in Dragonville, this is different. Barracks are where we train our troops, but here they no longer offer Health or Defense. Barracks give bonuses for training. By increasing the number of Barracks and the level, you can increase the number of troops you can train at once and decrease the cost.
The Hospital no longer gives Health or Defense benefits, either. The level and number of hospitals you have, however, does control how many beds you have. If you want to set up so that more troops go to the hospital than die, you will want to build more hospitals and level them up.
Finally, we have Villas. The Villas are still for production of Silver, but they also offer a Troop Defense Bonus. This benefit starts at Level 10 and increases with the number of Villas you have.
Villa Details

Farms, Logging Camps, Quarry, and Mine
These are where you create the rest of your resources needed to complete functions within the Dragon Realm. By increasing the level of these buildings, you can increase the amount of resources that you produce. In addition, by increasing the level of these buildings, you can increase your holding capacity for these resources. If you have more resources than your Empire Capacity, your RSS buildings will stop producing.
Gear Workshop
The Gear Workshop has been added into the Dragon Dimension. Here you are able to upgrade your gear using Iron Scraps. However, in order to be able to utilize your Gear Workshop to its full potential it is necessary to upgrade it first.
This building requires Gear Workshop Blueprints to upgrade. We have put together details on upgrade costs for you to help when deciding on which packs to purchase. The total cost to upgrade this Building to max at 5 is 200 Blueprints.

Athena’s Armory is another building that has been added to our landscape. Here we can receive different bonuses from the sets of gear available in your inventory. By unlocking the different levels of this building you can receive bonuses even if you do not have the gear crafted at Legendary. However, note that upgrading the Armory adds a lot of power and is costly. In order to fully upgrade the Armory you need 500 Armory Blueprints.

Mercenary Training Grounds
The Mercenary Training Grounds currently house one mythical Creature. When this feature is unlocked you are able to train Dragon Caravan creatures. These troops have been referred to as “Super Farmers” by many players. Their best use is for gathering and they are not intended for defense or attack. This building maxes at level 1.
Hero Hall
We also now have a Hero Hall. This is where you are able to manage the Heroes you have in the Dragon War Dimension. There are currently two Heroes available to players here. Hero 1 and Hero 2. We will cover more information on the Heroes in a later Article.
Banner Stand
The Banner Stand has come to grace your Dragon War Dimension City. Currently there are only four banners available in the Dragon War Dimension.
Dragon War Dimension Banners:

Dragon War Dimension Infantry Banner: Infantry Troop Defense and Infantry Troop Attack
Dragon War Dimension Ranged Banner: Ranged Troop Attack and Ranged Troop Defense
Dragon War Dimension Cavalry Banner: Cavalry Troop Attack and Cavalry Troop Defense
Dragon War Dimension Troop Banner: Troop Attack and Troop Defense

The first three banners listed are available in the Gold Store and the final banner is part of a Rewards program similar to what we have seen in Demigod in the past. Before deciding on purchasing Banners be sure to check the level available in the Gold store as at lower levels these banner stats are very small. In order for the stats to be more valuable you will need multiple banners to combine in your forge.
There are so many more features in Dragonville that Teamrealtips is working to find out more about so we can continue to bring you the best information possible. As buildings are added and we continue to learn more, we will keep this guide updated with the latest information possible.

Dragonville Trapping

admin No Comments

Welcome to the Dragon War Dimension. Or, as many call it, Downstairs, Toothless, Dragonville and more! Players have been having some fun in this dimension and it has brought a new level of strategy to the playing field.
The “Toothless” Dimension is a favorite for many players as it reminds us of old school Game of War. Along with it, we have so many possibilities when it comes to trapping. Today, we will be covering trapping in Dragonville and some of the basics regarding trapping. Many players have frequently asked questions when it comes to trapping and we will aim to cover all of those here.
Trapping 101
Welcome to Trapping 101. For a long time trapping has been unique, and a long time ago power became irrelevant to some degree in trapping. However, it is relevant when it comes to trapping in the Dragon Dimension. So there are some basic things you need to know before you start building in this realm.

Power is relevant in the world of trapping again, so there are some basic things you will want to watch that will give you a lot of power when you are trying to stay low power.

Hero Level – Hero Levels give a lot of power: at level 40, your total hero power will equal 2.03 million.
Empire Quests – Collecting Empire Quests will give a ton of power. Before you know it, you can have millions in power just from quests. So while at times the rewards can be tempting, this is something you will want to be cautious about.
Research – Carefully plan out what research you want and need to complete. Research gives added power, so if it is not necessary, do not do it.
Cinder’s Research Tip: Rewards Research does not give any added power. 
Buildings – Buildings are another thing that add power, so be wise with building levels and outer buildings. If you can’t produce enough for it to be worth it anyway, then there really is no need to have 20 farms, and they will just increase your power.
Watch your Hospitals – If you want to use hospitals in your build, keep a close eye on them. At level 20, a hospital will give 20-million-plus Hero XP. This will jump your hero level quickly, and cause an increase in power. If you want to use hospitals in your build, consider keeping them lower then level 20.

Know how you want to trap.

Low-level trap – This is a trap that is a low level with low research and power, but high troop levels. This level trap will not be able to fight off high-level attackers, but is a good point scorer when being hit by low level attackers during KvK events.
High-level trap – This is a trap that wants to build to cap the big kids. They will build until they are able to take on the max players of the Dragon World.
Solo Trap – Do you want to take only solos and run from rallies? This will enable you to remain at a lower level; however, be cautious of being caught away with your shield down when a rally hits.
Rally Trap – Rally traps can take solos and rallies. These will be larger accounts and may not get as many hits, but rally trapping is always exciting!
Get Creative – These are some of the more common ways to trap, but don’t be scared to get creative! The sky is the limit, and if it works, there is nothing wrong with it.

Know what stats you need and where you will need to get them from.

The Science of Trapping
Trapping involves some science, as we like to call it. There are some basic stats that you will need to focus in on in the Dragon Realm, and many of these are similar to stats we have previously seen in Game of War. Each stat has its own unique role in trapping, and there is a science to building in a manner that works for you.
Common Trap Problems and How to Fix Them
Problem: I can kill off my attacker’s march, but I am still burning and losing.
Solution: Look at your Defense stats and Health stats. When looking at stats in trapping, Defense will help you to be able to lose fewer troops and win. There are a few places you can get Defense, including Research, Gear (Sentinel’s Gear is a good place to look), Gems, and Villas (Level 10 and up). Health stats can be found in Research, Hero, Gear, and Gems. If you are struggling to find more defense stats then look into adding more troops.
Problem: I win, but I cannot cap my attacker’s Hero.
Solution: In this case, you are struggling to kill off your attacker’s march. You need more Attack Stats. Attack is what helps your troops kill off your attacker’s march. So while many traps just focus on defense, this will leave you lacking. Some of the places to find Attack in the game are Research, Gear (check our Arbiter’s Gear), Gems, and Hero Abilities. Once again, if you can’t add more attack, consider adding more troops.
Problem: What troops should I use?
Solution: Unfortunately, there is a myth out there that certain troops tiers are inherently bad and T2 will send you up in flames like kindling. This is not the case. While that does not mean you should go out there and spam-build T1 traps, it does open up the board for discussion when it comes to this. We will explore troops more below.
Troop Science
We had some help from our friend Cheminem, who compiled the following information! We thank him so much for the time and effort he put into testing to help benefit the community.
Chem took some time to test the different troops. Since we are going to do a little science, we will look at this like a science experiment.
Purpose: To see the differences using different Troop tiers for defense.
Hypothesis: Different Troops will react differently based on their tier to an attack.
Method: In order to control the results of the test, the troop power remained the same for each test. Each defense used 70k power’s worth of troops for each tier. Troops were put in an encampment, and then attacked to see how they would react to each individual attack.
Discussion: You can see from the chart above that with each Tier there were differences. For example, switching from T1 to T2 meat reduced losses by a significant amount. In addition, the number of kills went up significantly as troop tiers increased. This means that if you have two traps and both are identical in power, but one is all T1 and one is all T2, the T2 trap will kill even more of the attacker’s march. This information will become more and more significant as players open more troop tiers. Looking at this data, what tier troop would you choose to use?
What does this mean in Non-Chem Geek Speak? There are different factors that we will need to look at here, but if you look at it from a purely mathematical perspective, it makes sense to use the highest tier you have. However, looking at trapping as an art will make us question this, as players with a higher level account may get a reduced number of hits. While you can use lower tiers, you will have to amass more of these to be able to be more effective. It is clear that as troop tier increases, you can kill more of your attacker’s march and reduce your own losses.
Dragon Science
Unfortunately, there is currently not a lot of science concerning the Dragon. Currently, your best bet as a trap is to get your Dragon out of the way. Whether that means you ghost rally it or send it to raze an inactive account, you do not want to take hits with your Dragon home. If you have not yet hatched your Dragon, I would recommend not doing so.
Example Set-Ups
As mentioned previously, there are different setups you can use when building your trap. Below, we will give some examples of successful setups. Thank you to those provided me with reports and information surrounding their setup!!
Setup 1
This is actually my own setup. My account is a SH 10 with low research and high troop count. I have focused on a combination of defense and attack stats. My account is built to be hit by solos coming from small attackers, and is quite effective in taking these hits. However, being a small T2 trap, it is not very effective against larger attackers and will burn quite freely to a T4 hit. Here is an example of a successful defense.

Setup 2
The next setup belongs to HungryStick from D:V. He is SH 20 with high research and troop power. As he is well-known in his kingdom, he does not get many hits there, but he does well in KvK events. He uses T3 to defend and can successfully defend against larger attackers.

Setup 3
Our final example setup is from FinsUp in D:V. He has been building to be able to take rallies from large players. He is running a mix of T2 and T3 troops. He gave us some of his reports and we pulled one where he was soloed by a max player.
Wrapping it Up
Trapping is something very unique to the individual. Being able to take a hit and successfully defend is not always easy but when you are able to be successful it is a blast. Trapping is a bond that many Game of War players share in our sub-community. We have shared some of the science behind it here today, but there are so many more avenues to explore in trapping in the Dragon Realm. What is your favorite part of trapping? Comment below!
