Game of War

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!
Events
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

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

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
Events
Speed Dungeon
Attack

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
Events
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
Packs

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!

How to Catch Up in the the Demigod Dimension

admin No Comments

Everyone needs a little time away. It happens. Sometimes things happen where you just need to put down the game and take some time for yourself. Nevertheless, we all have returned.  The game pulls you back in, but mostly, it’s the people we meet and form relationships with that brings us back. So we redownload the game, reset passwords we forgot, and watch the game come back to life, and prepare to learn how to catch up in the Demigod Dimension.
Then it hits you, you are faced with the realization that you have no idea what is going on. With the release rate in the Demigod Dimension, it’s easy to fall behind, feel overwhelmed, and not know where to begin to put your account back together.  So let’s take some time to figure out how to catch up in Demigod Dimension.
Get Back in the Community
Game of War has an extensive community of players. The players have found many ways to communicate and share information regarding the game using different apps. Line and Discord are the two most common apps used by Game of War players for this purpose. Real Tips has both a Line room and a Discord Room for the Game of War community. These rooms have a vast amount of knowledge from the many different players, and we all share and help each other as much as possible.
Find a Friend
Everyone needs to have one person to act as a mentor to help guide you back into the game. Find someone that is willing to be there to answer all of your questions about how to catch up in the demigod dimension. Add them to your Contact List in-game so you can easily reach out when you are buried deep in building and need a fast answer. This person will also be a good resource to help you pick your packs wisely! The great part is that most players are very helpful, and this should be an easy step.
Join an Active Alliance
This is a very important step in making your comeback! The obvious reason is that you have a group of people to help you guide you in the right direction. However, there are a few less than obvious reasons. The first being the Alliance Helps. This will save you speeds when you are researching, building, and training. Also, many people learn by watching. Being in an active alliance you can watch conversations in alliance chat. You can observe rallies. This will help you learn how to use any new features. Not to mention, it is so much easier to get an Econ Blessing when you are with a group that is logging in the game consistently.
Make a Plan for Your City
Now that you are in the Real Tips rooms, you found a mentor, and you found an alliance, its time to focus on the actual work. This is where most people get overwhelmed. However, breaking it down into sections makes it easier.

Hero and Gear– Get your hero leveled up and make sure you have presets ready with training, construction, and research gear ready.
Building Levels– A lot of the research requires your academy to be at a certain level. Therefore, it is best to try and build as high as you can go before you start researching.
Research– This is the foundation of every great account, so make sure you complete as much of your missing research as possible
Training Troops– There is no reason to have to train troops until right before you are ready to drop your shield. The only exception to this is if you need to gather resources. If that is the case, train just enough to fill a march.

Don’t forget to use the Real Tips guides to help you along the way. We have a Hero Guide, a City Guide, and a Guide for Gear.
Drop Your Shield and Have Fun!
Now its time to finally join the fun! Drop your shield and get in some rallies. Don’t forget that continually taking hits is the best way to test your account. Maintaining account is an ongoing process, but it is certainly part of the fun.

Player Spotlight: KUSHQU33N

admin No Comments

It has been a spooky October and we are going to end the month with our monthly player profile. This month we spent some time talking to a player who has been playing for a while but not quite as long as some of the players we have looked at so far.
If you have missed any of our past Player Spotlights you’ll definitely want to go back and take a look at them. Some of my favorite things to do are to spend time talking to these players and getting to know them. I hope that you are enjoying it as well!
Past Player Spotlights
Emperor Huckster
The Tiny Fighting Trap
Rogueness
Player Spotlight: WolfofOne001
Player Spotlight: Rage
For this installment, we spoke with KUSHQU33N. We definitely don’t want to forget the ladies and the power that many women bring to the game. So let’s take a break and get to know one of our female warriors.
Becoming KUSHQU33N
Meet KUSHQU33N. KUSHQU33N is a member of ~WLD and has been playing Game of War for about three years. While she came to the game a little later, she has had fun catching up and getting to know the game. She has a thirst to know more and be better in her gameplay which is essential for any Game of War Player. In the time she has played, like every Game of War player, she has learned and she has grown. However, each of us has our own beginnings.
KUSHQU33N started playing in Kingdom 849 and ended up in Kingdom 2 after a merger. She spent her time while playing as a Lead. She would solo players on a daily basis. KUSHQU33N’s early days of playing helped lead to her becoming the player she is today as well.
When the Dragon War Dimension was released she stopped playing in the Demigod Dimension. Her focus has been there since the release and she has been able to make new friends there and learn. KUSHQU33N in the few months since Dragon has opened has learned more about Wonder Battle and Rally Leading. This has led to her becoming not only a better Lead but also a filler.
We frequently see KUSHQU33N moving from alliance to alliance to be able to help support allies and friends in the Dragon War Dimension. Some of her greatest accomplishments and losses have occurred in this game space. As we continue to get to know her we will see more about this below.
Thoughts on Dragon War Dimension Versus the Demigod Dimension
Many players have “picked a side” for lack of a better way to put it. Players find themselves gravitating more towards the Dragon War Dimension or the Demigod Dimension. There is nothing wrong with the side you choose as it is player preference. We asked KUSHQU33N to share her thoughts regarding the two.
Honestly, I don’t even play in Demigod anymore. There is too much going on there and it is just too crazy and complicated for me. I prefer the Dragon War Dimension because of the slower pace, and it is not as complex as Demigod. It reminds me of old-school Game of War.
What are you Wearing?
We asked KUSHQU33N what her current Gear of choice is. I mean clothes make the woman right? And the right shoes are to die for! For a little Halloween fun check out the meme below!
KUSHQU33N’s gear choice did not disappoint. Her current gear points directly to the type of player she is and makes me quite jealous (not gonna lie). She is currently sporting Level Six Arbiter gear and an Assassin’s Kunai.
Greatest Accomplishments
We all of things we consider some of our greatest Accomplishments. KUSHQU33N shared some of her favorite accomplishments which have recently centered around her time in the Dragon War Dimension. Some of her favorite wins included opening T4 Troops and Stronghold 30 in the Dragon War Dimension. In addition, seeing ~WLD become the first wonder holders in Dragons Nest (1151).
 Most memorable Win
The burns, the caps, no matter what it is we all have our most memorable wins in Game of War. Some are fresher than others while some are older. However, these are the things that make us smile and remind us why we love the game.
Most memorable win at this time would have to be burning Lord Stark a few days ago. OG Drago from N0== alliance set a rally on him and we filled. Stark only burned because his dragon was home but it was well worth it, seeing him burn and releasing all the heroes he was holding.
Most Memorable Loss
With the wins we also have losses. These losses help us to learn and help us become better players. Just as KUSHQU33N has had some noteworthy wins she has also had some memorable losses.
Ctesse soloed me a month or so after Dragon War Dimension was released. I was sitting in the Wonder and suddenly I was ported out and on fire. After that, I had to shield and build my account more. Then ~WLD and @1CT became friendly and I went on to cap her after asking her for a test right before the first Dragon War Dimension Super Wonder. I worked hard but still doubted myself. I was surprised I did not burn.
Why does KUSHQU33N Play?
We all have our own reasons for playing. For many, these reasons come down to the people we play with. This is no different for KUSHQU33N, she plays for her own reasons but much of them surround the people she has met.
The game is a great outlet for meeting new people and I love playing with all the friends I have made in game.
Best Game of War Memories
We all have different memories of the game and some of those memories will forever stand out. Some of the memories are the moments that leave us with our mouths wide open, going ummmmm… what just happened there? We scratch our heads and sometimes can be very upset. Looking back these memories can often become funny and some of our best Game of War Memories.

During the dragon glitch ( launching a dragon at a SH would zero the player ), LSUGirl attacked me with a dragon during a Wonder battle and zeroed me. Looking back it’s super funny and MZ later replaced all the troops that were killed during that time frame.
KUSHQU33N’s Advice to Players
Everyone has their own take on the game and this leads to some great advice from the players we have had the pleasure of getting to know. We asked KUSHQU33N for her advice to players as well and her advice rings true.
If you get zeroed do not get discouraged. Use your reports from the attacks and come back stronger than before.
We see so many players ready to throw in the towel when they burn or get zeroed. However, the many of the truly great Game of War players know, you are going to get burned and you are going to get zeroed. What matters is what you do afterward. Do you learn from it or do you throw in the towel? The choice is yours.
What are you excited about?
Different things about the game get us all excited. For me, it is the thrill of an incoming attack and wondering what the result will be. For others, it is waiting for the fire to blaze from another player’s Stronghold and for others, it is the joy of a well-built account. We asked KUSHQU33N what she is most excited about in game right now.
Cores were released and I’m super excited to play around with them. I am also really happy we are able to gather different resources now, this gives smaller players a better advantage so that they can grow. In addition, Stronghold 31-40 was released giving 5 marches instead of 4, marches are bigger and so are rally sizes.
Wrapping it Up
Game of War is constantly changing and so are the players and the things we look forward to. It brings us a diverse community of players. Each of these players has their own strengths and their own weaknesses. Each of these players looks forward to different things as they travel their Game of War journey.
Some players we are able to relate to and learn from. Hopefully, as you read our player profiles this is an opportunity you get. We are having a blast getting to know our community and their different play styles and stories. We hope you are too! If you have questions or comments please be sure to leave them before and let us know whose Game of War story you would like to hear next!

Defending in Demigod Realm

admin No Comments

When it comes to Demigod defense, it’s been evolving in Game of War. While many assume that defending is the same as being a trap, it’s simply not true. Trapping is the art of appearing to have a weak account when, in fact, it’s very strong. If you are simply building to defend, you are not worried at all about appearing to have a small account worth hitting. You simply just want to make sure you can fill rallies and drop your shield without the fear of being burned by a solo or rally.
In this article, we will go over what it will take to have a safe build, a basic safe Demigod defense account.
Important Stats
Knowing which stats are important when defending is the most important piece of information to have. This will allow you to guide yourself through gear, hero skills, and other areas such as the Boost Hall with greater ease
Of course, we all know that Demigod Defense, Attack, and Health are the most important. Also important are Attack and Health Debuffs. But remember that those are supporting stats, and they affect the attacking player’s troops and not your own. Any stats that improve your Troops are stronger than the stats that affect the incoming troops. Having high Debuffs will not save you if you have not made sure your Demigod Attack and Demigod Defense and Demigod Health are as high as you can get them. Right now the Demigod Defense Debuff is around 65k, so you want to push to get your defense above that number.
Another thing to keep in mind is the importance of Trap stats. Your traps take the brunt of the hit and are usually the only thing lost in a battle. Make sure you have Trap Attack, Trap Defense, and Trap Health maxed anywhere possible.
Gear
Depending on what kind of set up you are using will greatly influence your choice of gear. It also will have a lot to do with which pieces of gear you have leveled up, powered up, and enhanced the farthest.
Because the Defense Debuff is around 65k, you first want to make sure that you have gear that will get your defense over that DD stat. Then, add in pieces that add a lot of Attack to help kill more of the incoming march. Some of the attack pieces will also have Attack Debuff in them as well, so those are beneficial in more than one way.
To get more details on gear, RealTips has two more detailed articles to help you with your selection of Gear and their Stats
Troop Composition
This is a highly debatable subject matter, as well as highly diversified. But keep in mind, your Troop Build will be directly related to your stats. If you have higher stats that are closer to max, then you can cut your troop count down farther than most. However, if you’re stats are average to below average, you will need extra troops to help you take those hits. Keep in mind, this is a general recommendation for most players to build safe to take hits. We recognize that there are many possibilities to choose from, especially if you like to play different styles, but this is the most general setup recommended to not burn.
Building to Not Burn
First, using t4 as a meat shield is no longer suggested. The amounts that you would need to build would be very costly and would increase your power exponentially. The cost of building the t4 needed to not burn could be put to use in other areas.
T5 is the most efficient tier to use for building your meat shield. Currently, you will need at least 500million t5 Traps and 100million t5 mythics to not burn for a t6 rally. If you are going up against a notorious maxed account, they may even need more.
Hero And Hero Skills
Which Hero you use will greatly depend on the levels of the heroes you have open. Just because you have the new Beryl hero will not mean that it’s the best one to use, especially if it’s not level 85 or above. That seemed to be the point at which the Beryl had higher stats than the Blue Knight.
Like discussed in the Stat section above, you want to first skill your TTMM Demigod Attack, Demigod Defense, and Demigod Health. After that Attack Debuff and Health Debuff would be important. Finally, make sure you skill the individual Type Attacks and Type Defenses.
What About Mercenary and Dragon Realm Stats?
Many ask about the Dragon Realm Stats, Whirlpool, Gushing Lava, and Desert Storm. These are actually type stats in themselves. Whirlpool is the same as Waterlord, Gushing Lava is Firelord, and Desert Storm is Thunderlord. These type stats have been tested and are about one fifth the strength of the normal Type Stats. So unless you have plenty of extra skill points, don’t worry about putting skills in these spots.
Lastly, mercenary skills are also often questioned. We tested multiple times with the berserkers and even having banners that multiplied the berserker stats. None of the RealTips tests showed a change in the outcome when we skilled both mercenary defense and mercenary health. The Mercenary Attack did have a slight kill increase, although priority would definitely go towards Type attack over mercenary attack.
Banners and Gems
Banners and Gems are a great place to add what is missing. If you feel your account needs to kill more incoming troops, then use the banners that have the most attack. If you think you need to save more of your troops from being killed, then stack defense and attack debuff in gems and banners. You can quickly look at the banners and gems at RealTips previous posts on each of these topics!
Check our post on Demigod Gems here
Information about Demigod Banners is here.
Miscellaneous Information
Research- You want to do as much research as possible. Power gained from doing research is not anything to be concerned about any longer. Besides your gear, your research is your most powerful tool. Get in that academy and get to work!!
Lifetime Boost Hall- We can not stress the importance of this building enough. Although the stats seem small, they do all stack and will add up to a significant amount. Think about the stats we have discussed in this article, and then figure out what you think your account may be missing. This is one of the places where you can really get the Trap specific stats built up.  Use this boost hall to your advantage!!
VIP- Vip doesn’t necessarily need to be maxed, as this can sometimes defer leads from hitting you. If you are building a trap, then just upgraded little at a time. If you are just building to defend without burning no matter what it takes, then go ahead and get your VIP as high as you want.
Special Buildings- The special buildings are very important. These can be leveled as high as you can get them, and as long as you run Anti Scout, no one will know if you have them maxed or not. Some buildings to focus on leveling first for Defending :

Black Market– Demigod Attack, Demigod Defense, and Demigod Health
Alchemy Lab– Trap Attack and TTMM Attack Debuff
Speed Up Treasury– Trap Defense
Gear Workshop– Empire Defender Demigod Attack
Archeology Hall– Empire Defender Demigod Defense
Mausoleum– Empire Defender Demigod Health

While many players have found their own little tricks to the game, this is sure to be a safe Demigod Defense build for any player. Always keep in mind that as new releases come out, you want to increase your defense and also increase the number of traps and mythics you use for your meat shield. Do you have any tips you would like to share with other Real Tips players? Comment in the section below and share with the community!

Who are You?

admin No Comments

Who are you? Who am I? We all play our own role within Game of War. One of the first questions we ask when we start playing is, What do you want to be? It reminds me of when we were children and we were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. We did not really know then because we were still figuring this thing called life out.
Just like figuring out who we are in life takes time and experience so does figuring out who we are in Game of War. One day for whatever reason we download the game and we look at it and have no clue what we are doing. We have to start building and growing to learn who we are within Game of War and to figure out what play style we desire to ascribe to.
Who Are You?
So who are you and how do these different roles interact with each other? It is important to know this in the game because sometimes we forget the value that different styles of play bring to an Alliance. Do you want to be the player that is being burned? The player who is burning people? Or part of the support team? All roles are essential.
In this article, we will take a closer look at each of the roles and then we will look at how they interact with each other. 
The Trap
The trap, for those who do not know, this is my favorite playstyle. To me there is nothing better then people looking at me deciding they think I am “burnable” and then hitting me to be surprised by the message of their Hero being captured to flash across their screen. Let’s be honest my favorite part is the mail I receive when they are trying to get their Hero back. Especially when they tell me how Awesome I am, even though I know they are just trying to flatter me in hopes that I will be magnanimous and release their Hero that seems to have wandered off.
The Trap is a common play style and one that involves a lot of strategy and thought. Many traps that are considered at the top of their game are well known in Game of War and looked up to by many players. The trap is for a player that really does not want to attack or hold Wonders but wants to be attacked. The trap is probably one of the most customizable accounts and we here at realtips encourage you to not do a cookie cutter build but to learn the basic principles and be creative in your gameplay.
In some of our previous articles about trapping you were able to see more about the basic principles of trapping and different ways you are able to build up. This includes The New Age Demigod Trap and Dragonville Trapping. I love looking back through old Trap articles on the website and seeing how things have changed and it’s so easy. Just type “trap” in the search bar and see what comes up. So if you are considering becoming a trap make sure you take a look into some of that information.
The Lead
The Lead is another common playstyle. However, the simple fact is that not everyone can be a lead player. This is something that a lot of newer players struggle with. They want to be able to go out and burn people, however, they usually do not have the ability to do so. The lead is typically a well-respected player within alliances and very necessary to growth. This player is going to typically spend more than your average player.
As a lead, you are going to want to max stats as much as possible and build for your safety when your Hero is not home. I played a weak lead for a while, however, while on occasion I had fun burning people I usually picked targets I knew could cap me so I could flip to Heroless trap.
Most Leads have gained the unfortunate reputation of point and click players. A lot of people underestimate the amount of strategy that a lead player needs to have in order to be successful. And the Lead has its own level of strategy when it comes to gameplay. It does take more than a wallet. It takes strategy behind troops and skills and even more.
The trap considers strategy behind where to build stats and where to gain power so they still appear as if they will burn the lead will max as much as possible. However, for Leads, there is a different level of strategy here in knowing what targets to pick and how to skill and what to send. Some of the best Leads I have actually met were originally traps.
The Filler
The Filler is a bit of a cross between the Trap and the Lead. This is a support player. They build for a few reasons. They want to be able to fill rallies of the Lead and if they happen to get targeted want to know they will not burn. There is some strategy here but it is not as complex as typically this player doesn’t care about power but simply cares that they do not burn. These accounts take less maintenance and are good for players who want to support the other play styles.
Many times you will see that the filler can alternate between roles as well. They can play the role of a smaller attacker or a trap in the right circumstances. As the game updates this player will be targeted more if they do not keep up as much and as they catch up in the game they can burn smaller targets.
Now You Know
Now that you know what some of the more common roles within Game of War are, what role do you want to play? There is nothing wrong with any of these roles, however, what we see happen a lot is that Alliances prioritize certain players. What is important to note is that within an Alliance every one of these players has their own roles that are important.
If you do not have a well-balanced Alliance you will struggle in being able to be successful and maintain other good players. Every Alliance needs Fillers, a really good Lead, and a really good Trap. These players need to know each other and be able to respond to each other, some of this comes from building relationships within your Alliance.
The Interactions
So, let’s look at what an Alliance should look like and how it should be structured. One of the biggest faults I see is Alliances that are so concerned with having Attack Players and Fillers that the traps get left to the wayside. Alliances openly will not take players below certain powers or players who do not have certain troops.
Below you can see information about how the different roles interact. Note that every role provides something important. Some of my best years of playing were when I played with a Lead who understood what I was doing as a trap and I understood what he was doing as a Lead.
We were able to work off of each other and be more successful because we worked as a team and played to each other’s strengths and weaknesses. My Lead provided the activity I needed to be noticed as a Trap and I provided more targets for him as a Lead.
The Run Down

Your Trap Gets hit and Caps a Hero

This Provides a Heroless target for your Lead and Fillers are needed

A rally gets set on your Trap

Fillers from the opposing team Surround the opposing lead
This provides targets for your lead and fillers are needed

Lead Sets a Rally

Fillers are needed
The Opposing Alliance goes on Defense
Your Traps and Fillers get hit
New Targets are provided for your Lead
Fillers are needed

The biggest thing I have to say here is the best part of these interactions are rescue missions. Heroes are bound to get capped and players are bound to go on rescue missions to save their Alliance members Hero. This provides a ton of activity within the game and Alliance and something to do for everyone. So while sometimes we as players become very focused on the attack side, all components are needed to truly be a successful Alliance.
Wrapping it Up
One of the best things about Game of War is the complex interactions that are required in order for players to be successful. An Alliance that does not have a good mixture of players will not be successful. All types of players are required to be successful. Traps, Leads, and Fillers all bring different types of activity to an Alliance that other players are able to use to be successful. So be sure that when you are building your own Alliance you have a healthy balance.
The roles within the game are more complex and there are other ways they interact. We have just provided some of the basic information and interactions.
What ways have you seen these interactions within your own Alliance? Comment below and let us know!

All I Really Need to Know, I Learned Playing Game of War

admin No Comments

These are the things I learned in Kindergarten:
1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don’t hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life – learn some, drink some, draw some, paint some, and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup — they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned — the biggest word of all — LOOK.”
― Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
Many of us are familiar with this little essay. It is funny, it is sentimental, and it is true. However, in some ways we learn those lessons in other areas of life. Robert Fulghum may have learned everything he needs to know in Kindergarten, but I learned it in Game of War.
Lessons taught in Game of War
These are the things I learned in Game of War:
1. Share everything
Working together with your Alliance mates makes you a stronger player. It is really difficult to play Game of War without an Alliance. Within an Alliance, you can share resources and gift each other. By doing so you ultimately make each other stronger. In Game of War, I learned that sometimes it is necessary to share everything!
2. Play fair.
Many players who have been around for a big amount of time have heard horror stories and even seen them in Alliances or players that are less then ethical. Most of us remember players that during old school KvK kill events would “cheat.” By building accounts that were nerfed, they would inflate their kills and inflate their score. This kind of behavior has long been shunned by the Game of War Community. The Game of War Community teaches us to play fair!
3. Don’t hit people.
We like hitting people in Game of War. Let’s be honest. However, there is always that one trap that is intent on teaching us the lesson that we should not hit people! In my original Kingdom, I spent some time in an alliance that was intent on teaching that lesson to one of the “big bad wolves” of our Kingdom. Any time we would cap him, we would put him in “time out” and wait long enough that either his core was burnt out, or right before he dared to mar our graveyards by dying a hemlock death.
4. Put things back where you found them.
Have you ever logged into the game and changed your gear to research and forgotten to switch back to defense gear? You inevitably end up logging back in later to find that you are on fire! You took your Defense gear off to play with your Research Gear and did not put it back where you found it. This led to flames and quite the mess, so Game of War has taught me to always put things back where I found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
If you do not know where I am going with this, then you are guilty! Along the way in the game we kill Monsters who then spawn tiles. If you do not collect the monster tiles you end up surrounded by Monster tiles with hardly anywhere to move and monsters take longer to re-spawn. We have seen it happen! So for goodness sake, clean up after yourselves!
6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Let’s travel back to the good old days of ancient protected kingdoms. Kingdoms where there were such things as Kingdom Rules (the horrors). These Kingdoms had rules, like “no tile hitting” and first march rules. By enforcing these rules, they essentially taught us the lesson to not take things that are not ours.
7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
This lesson comes down to basic manners. So let’s look at please and thank you as well. Game of War, if you allow it, will teach you the importance of manners. One of the first times my hero was captured, I was lost. I had no clue how to get it back or what to expect. In case I haven’t mentioned it, Game of War was my first game of this type. I was advised by my Alliance at the time to politely ask for my little Hero back. Sure enough, over the years of playing I have learned you are much more likely to get your Hero back if you ask politely, versus if you rage and threaten their livelihood. However, let’s be honest, sometimes the raging is funny.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
I remember when we used to get seasonal monsters. Around Thanksgiving, we were all running around killing turkeys and making jokes about having made Thanksgiving Dinner — you know, or at least I was. The Turkey is ready, wash your hands and dig in!
9. Flush.
I mean, not to call anyone out… but we have all played Game of War from the ultimate Throne. Except me, I would never do such a thing, I’m a lady! Or would I? You will never know! However, after your time in the Throne room is completed, do not forget to flush and go back to number 8 (and please wash your hands!)
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
This is a universal truth. Have you ever seen that alliance that sits in Kingdom Chat baiting people to join them with snacks? They get this truth! We all know that Game of War goes best with a good snack and if it is warm cookies and cold milk, it’s that much better.
11. Live a balanced life – learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
Game of War encourages a very balanced life. There is time spent building and researching and time spent burning and being burned. We work on our accounts, we spend time playing, and we spend time drinking (please drink and play Game of War responsibly). We grow, learn, and play in the Game of War universe, and to excel at this game we truly need a balance of those things.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
It is KvK Kill… of course you are going to pull an all nighter, however, before you can do so, a nap is necessary! With the lack of evening sleep that Game of War players often suffer from, a nap in the afternoon is absolutely essential!
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
In game we often find ourselves clumping together in our little hives. There is safety in numbers and when we venture out into the rest of the Kingdom or a new Kingdom we must watch out for traffic (big attackers) and stick together (reins).
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Be aware of wonder… We have a big Wonder sitting in the middle of the Kingdom. As it is one of the most fought over items in the game, I do believe that Wonder is something that Game of War has taught us to be aware of!
15. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup — they all die. So do we.
We all get zeroed and have our Heroes captured. Eventually, it happens to every single player. We see this happen over and over again, and we learn that it happens to everyone and is part of life in the world of Game of War.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned — the biggest word of all — “LOOK.”
Look! This is a very important word in Game of War. We LOOK for targets, we LOOK for ways to increase our stats, we LOOK out for each other. Looking is a big component of Game of War and if you do not look, you will ultimately fail.
The lessons we learn in this community and the friends we make will last a lifetime. I learn everything I need to know playing Game of War. What life lessons has Game of War taught you? Be sure to comment below with your thoughts!

Game of War Time Capsule: Cores and Traps

admin No Comments

Do you remember slaving away in the forge? Taking hours and hours to craft the best set? Back in the day, you were determined to hit that mouthy trap in kingdom chat — the one that always capped you and never released. In this Game of War Time Capsule, we’ll be wandering down memory lane and reminiscing on the way cores and traps used to work. 
Cores and Traps
Cores were such a big part of gameplay once the first set was released. We all sought after secret recipes and spent hours constructing awesome customs. Everyone that used Cores knew how valuable they were. For that 45 minutes that you were burning that set, you felt invincible.
Myself, I was a trap back in those days. I would seek out players that I knew made the best core sets. The difference being that they took the time to pay attention to the stats, they Gemmed their sets the best, and they took plenty of time to roll that set bonus to the highest they could get.
Back when I started in 878 Djotus, I began as a trap. I quickly found myself a rival. He loved burning me, and I loved capping him. He was among the kingdom’s most disliked attack players, and when I would cap him, he always went in time-out. Then he would be forced to sit in my prison until his cores ran out or 44 minutes after cap to avoid him desecrating my beautiful graveyard.

Eventually, he and I became friends and when we played on the same team, I was able to become an even better trap. However, to this day he will tell you that I made him waste thousands of dollars in cores and hems.
-Cinder
I played both lead and trap accounts. My favorite core to craft was the 4H because I had the highest troop attack set bonus on it. But my favorite to use was definitely the Dragon Bone, because I had zeroed my first target with that set, and at that time DB (Dragon Bone) was a beast for Ranged. On my trap account there were certain sets I didn’t want a hit from, those sets were called Defense Debuff sets. However the common DD sets I could cap without rein or boosts. But the one set I didn’t want to get hit by was a I 47 I DD custom. He was one of my old alliance members and was a master in the forge. His DD sets had approximately 4/500 Defense Debuff more then the common DD sets. But I always tested his new sets because to capture the best players, you have to test against the worst scenario.
– k1ll1ngsd3v1l
Remembering Your First Set
Every player remembers their first and their favorite set…
“My absolute favorite core set was the 4 Horsemen (4H). I was a Wonder battler, and that was the first core set that was a game changer. Of course, by being a game changer, it was incredibly difficult to put a set together, except by buying certain packs or by winning events. I remember being at the Super Wonder and every leader was running 4H and the only difference between winning and being kicked out was what Special Set Bonus you had rolled on the set. Players spent millions of gold looking for the max on the set bonus. The Asteroid Core from the 4H Set was the first core I ever crafted from a MZ “secret” recipe, and then paired it with a set of custom cores I had crafted and was slaying in rallies.
-BadJudge
 
One time while I was playing Game of War when it was still fun, back in the day, FKN RAGE pms me and goes, bro I found a target in monster gear let’s zero it, I’m gonna call you. While we were on the phone, we decided he’d go Zeus and I would use a Dragon Bone (because my set bonus was the best there was). He never led a rally or anything, so I had to talk him through gemming and skilling. While gemming, I had to say look for the blue ones with a red center (or something like that, idk for sure because it’s a long time ago). 1 hr later his cores were gemmed. Then I had to talk him through the skill tree, that was also a pain in the butt. After the skill tree, there was only the set bonus left. In total, 2hrs after he found the target we could finally start rallying it. End of story: target zeroed, great job D:V 😎
-K1ll1ngsD3v1l
Using Cores for Defending
The funniest stories can come from using Cores as a defender. I remember plenty of alliance calls where the Rally Lead always had someone watching the gear of the trap we were going to rally. If that person yelled “Cores! Cores! Cores!” then you bet that Rally Lead was going to cancel the rally and take another look!
I got a good one for this. My first cap was with Ice Legend 27. I didn’t know what I was doing either at the time. It was my first core I ever made, and I had it set up for defense. People couldn’t understand how I was capping in it. I just went with the stats and it worked wonders, lol. (Only I wasn’t using it for the wonder.) I still have a set in my items, lol. I love that commercial for that gear, too.
-Lucifer666
Sometimes We Forget
Many players can tell you, they’ve spent hours and hours making the perfect set, just to forget to use them!!
I used to love creating cores, I had a core recipe book that I have only recently thrown away. My account was never up with everyone’s so the rally lead used to allow me to create his cores and give them a run. One of the first times I was let loose in a kill event I’d created a custom CAV core. I’d checked it double checked it, lined up the correct cav troops, organised the rally fillers with the correct troops, set the rally and excitedly marched on the hapless target… totally forgetting to equip the core and subsequently losing the battle and having the hero capped. It seems so long ago now, but the embarrassment lingers.
-Penelope
 
Core Recipe Books
Some of the more seasoned players kept all their recipes in one big core book! I know for myself, I kept a spreadsheet on my computer that I could print out when needed. Take a look at some of the awesome Core Books submitted by RealTips users!!

Cores were a vital part of GoW back then, and many of us are hoping one day they make a comeback. The addition of VIP crafting took a lot of time out of the process, but many of us still enjoy a good session in the forge!

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.
Portal
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.

Stronghold
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:

Hero
Combat
Wall Traps
Economics

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.

Prison
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 45~49- All Troop Attack 22%
Highest Prisoner Level 50+- All Troop Attack 30%

Altar
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.

Marketplace
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. 
Storehouse
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.
Watchtower
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

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.

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
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.

Hero Guide- Be Extraordinary

admin No Comments

Are you strong enough to lead your army, or a smart enough tactician to defend your Stronghold? Every battle has a hero that stands out and rises above the rest. Does your hero have what it takes?
Meet The Heroes
Spartan Hero
We, of course, cannot discuss Demigods without a new hero with Demigod stats to protect our city. Upon the release of Demigods, we also received the Spartan Hero. This is our hero for everything Demigod.
Facts about your Spartan Hero:

Leveling your Spartan to 50 is easy once the hero is unlocked, as it requires only Hero XP.
The Spartan Hero tree resembles the original hero tree from the beginning of the game.
Spartan Hero Tree includes skills for:

Construction
Production
Research
Training
Food Upkeep
Demigod Combat Stats
Core High Range Boost
Demigod Wonder Stats
Overlimit March Size

The points given for skills are very limited and therefore must be used wisely.

Valkyrie Hero
Facts about your Valkyrie Hero:

As with the Spartan hero, no Leveling Hilts are needed until level 50.

Valkyrie Hero Tree includes skills for:

Demigod Combat Stats
Food Upkeep
Training Cost Reduction
Research Cost Reduction
Economy Blessing Modifier
Combat Blessing Modifier
Crafting Core High Range Boost

This is a hero you will definitely want to use for Core Crafting.
This is your only Demigod Hero with Blessing Modifiers.

Demigod Frost King
Facts about your Frost King Hero:

Frost King Hero Skills Include

Demigod Combat Skills
Construction Cost Reduction
Upkeep Reduction
Research Cost Reduction
Overlimit March Size

This Hero has some great debuffs and Econ Stats.

Demigod Sapphire Hero
Facts about your Sapphire Hero:

Sapphire Hero Skills Include:

Demigod Combat Skills
Training Resource Cost Reduction
Upkeep Reduction
March Speed
Overlimit March Size
Mercenary Stats

If you are T5- and T6-based, this is a hero you will definitely want to look into for its T5 and T6 Specific Stats.

Demigod Azure Knight Hero

Facts about your Azure Knight Hero:

This Hero provides various Combat Stats, however, these will become more useful as this Hero’s level is increased
This Hero will be your Standout Hero if you are completing Pantheon Research. Be sure to skill it to reduce your T1, T2, and T3 RSS costs.

Beryl Warrior Hero

Facts about your Beryl Warrior Hero:

Currently the stats on this hero are somewhat lacking, however, like previous heroes we can expect these to improve as the Hero Level is increased.
One of the biggest uses from this Hero right now will be for RSS Reduction for Combat and Defense Research

Hero Level
Let’s look at Hero levels from each side:
Attack and Wonder
As a lead player, you want your hero to be the highest level possible. Hero levels give great boosts in attack and health.
Defense
If your goal is just defense so that you can unshield, your hero should definitely be leveled as high as possible. However, many of us old-school traps know that there used to be more strategy regarding whether or not you level up your hero. We are left wondering if, with Demigods, some of this strategy will return. For traps, hero level used to be key because if your hero level was too high, leads would not hit.
All of these need to be taken into account when choosing whether or not to level your hero:

Is the cost of this feature realistic for me?
Are the stats worth the possible decreased hits due to hero level?
If I choose not to level up, where else can I get stats that I am missing from hero levels?

Skilling of the Hero Tree
Skilling is no longer as simple as it was with previous heroes. We do not have massive amounts of skill points to allocate wherever we want, and it is not cut-and-dry “start at the bottom and work your way up.” Your points need to be very well-planned.
Things to Consider when Skilling:

In order to put just one point in the bottom skill, you must use 24 points.
Just because you unlock a box doesn’t mean you can max that skill; you must be a certain hero level to max the skill.
Points are very limited (below, we will cover hero costs and points).
Hero Presets do not open until VIP 1305.
Hero Preset items are very rare and difficult to get, which makes using this feature difficult.

There are multiple factors to consider when skilling your hero. On the defense and attack side, skilling for attack will be very important. Here at Teamrealtips, we recommend skilling using a setup even the current Emperor, Huckster (73V) uses!
The theory with this skilling setup is that you provide max protection for your traps, which die first and max attack for traps because they are a huge factor. You want your points for trap defense and attack as high as possible and then use any leftover points in a troop attack slot. Attack is currently important for defense players, as it allows them to kill more of their Attacker’s march.
Which Hero
With the multitude of Heroes, at times choosing the right hero to use can be difficult. We have created a table for the heroes so you can look at a side-by-side comparison of their stats. We will look at Combat Stats and Economy Stats. The number in the table is what the Hero offers at max skilled level. So be aware that, depending on your Hero Level, you may still need to make adjustments for yourself.
Demigod Combat Stats
Attack
Defense
Health
Demigod Economy Stats
Demigod Overlimit March Stats
Demigod Debuffs
The Other Heroes
WIth Demigods resetting the game, are all of those other heroes irrelevant? Mostly, but not completely. If you plan on hitting any monsters, your Demigod Hero has no skills for this, so using your original hero is best for this function.
Bait traps! Toss your old hero on with old gear and swap that hero! With the expense of gear presets for those who love bait trapping, this brings a whole new level of strategy.
We have heard of many other uses for your Hero out there. People are using this hero for cost reductions with powering up and more! So be sure to check the Eco stats on your Original Hero and see how it can help you.
Hero Garrison
While the Hero Garrison is still in your city there is currently no demigod stats included here. Therefore, this is a feature you do not need to factor into your calculations.
Equip Your Hero
Gear
Now that your trees are skilled, equip your hero with the best gear possible. For a list of the best gear, check out our Gear Guide.
With the massive update, your hero will need to be at the top of his game to survive. Do you have what it takes?
