hera core set super wonder guide

If you think by crafting Hera Wonder Core Set you will dominate the wonder then think again!  The Hera set may not be THE dominating set you think it is!  Let's take a closer look at this Hera wonder core set!

Is Hera actually better than Hephaestus?

Hera vs. Hephaestus Battle Analysis

So, as mentioned before Hera has higher troop health and higher attack.  It would appear then that Hera will dominate Hephaestus.  However, we must factor in debuffing.  Troop attack and health easier to debuff than specific troop health and attack (Infantry Health, Infantry Attack).

So, does Hephaestus have the necessary debuffs to take down Hera?  It does have higher Troop Health and Attack Debuff than Hera...

Wow, this is heating up to be quite a match!

  1. I hate hera core set, because of set bonus of health.
    before this core set, I can win enough to apollo, Hephaestus core set with my anti-apollo core, anti Hephaestus core.

    • Hmm cool custom set. May have to try it out!

      • If you understand cores/piece s(without ‘deadly cores’), you should know this fact.
        1= defense/DD boost, 2=health boost/health debuff, 3=attack/attack debuff boost
        For example, bloodstone has 150 inf/cav defense, 100 attack debuff. Calculate: 150×1+100×3=450
        Other example: spring sash: 150 health, 80 attack debuff
        result: 150×2+80×3=540
        I trust you can calculate pieces’ real boosts.
