I currently have a small base with kill island at island 3. The perch there (seagazer?) is level 32. I have been hoarding black pearls since I got it big enough to hold sapphire dragons. I have about 16k black pearls saved up.
So with fort coming up, my question is
Should I build the second perch - river watch? Will be useful when I move to middle long setup. From my calculations I have enough pearls to get it up to level 30. Since I only have one perch, I keep switching the rider to atlas defender rider during fort for construction bonus. ( don’t have any other rider with construction bonus). Which causes low DP during fort and is an issue when doing atlas attacks during the fort event. I can put defender on always without loosing on defense if I build another perch.
Second option is to build the existing perch higher. Like most I have put mehaten on it now with the intention of getting Oni later. But I am only lvl 308 with half a vanguard egg shezard done. It will take a while to get Oni as backbreed from emp parents. Also I am not too sure now about moving to middle long setup in current meta.
Would love to hear what everyone thinks. Thanks.
