Need advice for base configuration


#22

Everyone knows you let Chuck Norris play on your account and he soloed my base with a lvl1 Ember :cold_sweat:

You speak about a drain rage island. Not really a fan, besides I should have low level mage towers (didn’t have). In addition, I prefer to do or at least try to do some damage - that’s why the archer towers. Also I think the dragon can lose rage if he use spells to destroy five attack towers and maybe take some damages. Of course a powerful dragon, let’s say Equestor, will instantly blow up your drain island as well as my archer field, without losing too much rage.
Based on my low level I could not afford a fire flak and a dark flak. I used my embers only to upgrade DF.
I know, I’ve made a lot of mistakes at beginning, starting with building a long base.
About archer, I choose them because of attack power and health, a little better than cannon (excepting shield penetration).
I will definitely try several configurations, based on the screenshoot and your advices.


#24

Yep, death gaze and umbril spike. Was able to lead with Tengu on those layouts and spike blue before storm can protect it.


#25

Thunderbolt is an ideal spell for base defense when used on a drain island. Supershots fire right away, all rage gets drained and dragon races to mid.


#26

I want to be a good player but unfortunately i have 2 archers on my drain island. If interested feel free to PM me to set up a skirmish where you can teach me. I would in fact be grateful to learn, no matter the significance or even if i decide to keep my layout…as long as i learn something new i am most appreciative.


#27

Stop trolling Ghost :rofl:

Btw why archers there anyway? What level are they - I’m too lazy to PM you in game and look


#28

Lol it was only a half troll of a response. And i misread, i thought he said a good player would only have mages there. Im just too lazy to fix.

Only lvl 41 but will soon be 43. Im using that perch so i added a little extra somethin to help damage dragon. 90% archer striker buff applied.

2 perch is necessary to max gear for Lt Hp, Fire turret Hp, Blue Hp, Storm Hp, Flak Hp, Archer attack, Lt attack, Ice turret attack, Fire turret Attack.


#29

Nice rider buffs you got there!


#30

Thanks man they were the first i started on and are priority for me so i do what i can there first then craft dragon gear with what i have left over.


#31

Yeah i am not sure i agree with you regarding having archers on your rage drain. Seems like a very very simple thing to cloak over and leave as an anchor point for followers. It will do zero damage when cloaked so your +94% runes actually do +0 extra damage. And you don’t want to waste supershots on archer towers on a lead island anyways.

My perch has ice gear, all legendary and epic with a bunch of upgrades too. What element did you go for?


#32

Regardless, what is my alternative when i want 2 riders perched?

Im using Fire and Wind.


#33

Then you will just have a permanent anchor your war opponents will thank you for lol.

No amount of +% on your middle towers from the ridee will ever be worth the pitfall of leaving a very low damage tower out front for a war anchor.


#34

Fortunately there are 15*(idk why i counted perch, habbit now) more spots after mid


#35

So? You left a rage building tower out front. That would not fly on our team lol. There are only a few bases on our team allowed to build out that far with perches


LFM - Diamond 2 - Rulith - Level 200+, Obsidian+
#36

Good thing im content where i am…what team btw? Royal didnt mind defending me, at all.


#37

At +10% blue or storm, +20% fire or ice attack, +5% Archer, and i wont even bother mentioning rest…im ok with having a different opinion.


#38

Gotta agree with Mech here. Archer will definitely be used as a rage builder in a war scenario. Even having that perch built will serve as a rage builder even if you removed the archers. Just my 2c.


#39

Understood. Im sure most have same opinion as we all are entitled to have but all players on this thread could agree with you both and i would still believe that i am doing whats best for me.

@mechengg @SpaceGhostc2c
Hi guys,1 question pls.
The bonus derived from the Rider equipped on a dragon placed on the Perch, will increase all the towers of the base (the entire base ) OR only the 5 towers on the Perch’s Island ??
I hope I explained, thank you


#41

All towers. the new perch mechanics makes the boosts apply to the 15 towers encircled by the perch aura.
