Bacchus? The God of wine and parties! Good one GoW! Everyone loves wine and parties!!! But if you aren't prepared, there will be no party and you will need lots of wine.
Luckily Game of War Real Tips is here to break down the cores and give a helping hand to ensure all of our traps can party all KvK long...
Bacchus Core Set Breakdown
As always, let's break down the core and then go over the plan to beat it.
Bacchus Cavalry Attack
Bacchus is a cavalry core set with high cavalry attack. What does that mean for you? Simple, it means your range troops may take a beating. So step 1 we want to add lots of range defense and try to limit the cavalry attack.
Bacchus Defense Debuff and Health Debuff
Bacchus has 2k defense debuff and health debuff. So in trap terms, KUNAI UP! haha and that is exactly what we will do. We will try and cut some of that defense debuff and add as much troop defense as possible.
As far as the health debuffs go, health has been proven to be less important for traps over 100 million troops so we won't worry about that.
Bacchus Attack Debuff
Bacchus has nice attack debuff, around 1500 and infantry attack debuff at 550. Why is this important? With that high attack debuff and the new march size some traps will have trouble killing full march.
Have no fear we have a plan. Seeing as this is a cavalry core it is weakest to infantry attack. So we will boost infantry attack NOT TROOP ATTACK to ensure we kill full march.
Countering Stats Required
That pretty much sums up the core set. I explained what we want to aim for. So we want the following stats:
- Range Defense
- Troop Defense
- Cav Attack Debuff
- Troop Attack Debuff
- Infantry Attack
- Defense Debuff Resistance
Crafting Anti Bacchus Set
To make this cheap and available to as many people as possible I have used no underworld plattings. I also used 3 pieces of normal gear. Which means you only have to craft 4 cores each time. Making the set even easier to do.
First Piece of Anti Bacchus Set
So the first normal gear I used is of course Kinoichi's Kunai (Black Dagger). This will help cut the defense debuff down:
Second Piece of Anti Bacchus Set
The second piece of normal gear is the Shogun accessory. Great piece! It provides the key ranged defense needed. 450% !!
**NOTE** you can use 2 of these if you have them. It will give you 200 more range defense but 200% less troop defense in your stats.
Third Item of Anti Bacchus Set
The third and final piece of normal gear is the Paladin of Sola accessory. This piece gives us 250 ranged defense and 200 troop defense. Very good piece of gear. You can use two of these or two of the Golden Shogun accessories if you want more troop defense or more ranged defense.
Anti Bacchus Core Set
Now to the four cores. As I stated before, I made them as cheap as possible.
Anti Bacchus Core Weapon
First core I used was Zeus weapon. I followed GoW recipe. This gives me HUGE infantry attack. This core also gives 75% each troop defense. Very useful and very cheap to make.
Anti Bacchus Core Armor
Next core is Hades Armor. I debated putting this piece in here but decided I had to. I went Hades Armor and used the GoW recipe. But thankfully since its GoW recipe you can use level 4 or 5 pieces if you had to and you will still get good stats. This core gives 200% range defense, some attack, 300 CAV ATTACK DEBUFF. Yeah thats right 300! That being said I had to use it.
Anti Bachus Pieces
Ok the last two cores are customs. They both use the same pieces:
- Broken antler
- Earth Icon,
- Heron Charm
- Pile of Ash
- Peresphone Brush
- Winter Glass
Not to expensive at all. And each of those can be replaced if needed.
The last two cores I used
- Majestic Sallet Core (Hera Core Helm)
- Plated Foot Armor
Hera Helm has 200 ranged defense, and is very common. I had a few of them just from free chest from Athena. I went with Plated Foot Armor because it provides ranged defense and troop defense.
Anti-Bachuss Core Set Gems and Skills
Now after all that is done. Let's talk gems and skills. Again what do we want with this set. Refer back up to the top. We want defense/range defense , inf attack, debuffs. So we will skill all of those. Also skill all 3 alter boost. After skilling all of that you can use the rest of the points as you choose.
As always traps make do with what we have. So with gems go with troop defense in each spot. Defense and attack debuff are great, so Gem of Honor or Shadow Gems for us traps on a budget. I used Shadow, Honor, Defense, Elite Defense by self.
After it is set gemmed and equipped we have pretty good stats:
- Troop Defense - 3,000%
- Range Defense - 1,600%
- Cavalry Attack Debuff - 350%
- Troop Attack Debuff - 500%
- Infantry Attack - 1,000%
**NOTE** all cores and stats are from a 5bil trap. Stats may differ based on gems, any pieces you change, buildings sets up, and depending if you use shogun or solo accessory. But regardless all stats should be very close.
Once again thanks for reading. I hope I have explained what it takes to counter Bacchus and in an easy way to do it. Well I think the God of Wine is calling my name. For any questions feel free to comment or post in our forum to stay up-to-date on all gameofwarrealtips.com counters!
