The landscape of Game of War continues to change and evolve. With the newest release, we are seeing some changes to combat that make things a little more interesting in the Dragon Dimension.
The Sawduster has been released. With the Sawduster, we will see a variety of skills that can help players at a variety of levels. If you want to learn more about the new Game of War Dragon Dimension Sawduster, keep reading.
Meet the Sawduster
The Sawduster is a new feature in Game of War, released just in time for Halloween; this champion can be paired with your Dragon to help boost your Empire stats. The Sawduster is classified as a “War Machine.”
With this classification, you will find that your Sawduster lives in a different home than your Dragon’s. You will find your Sawduster in the War Machine Factory.
War Machine Factory
Good news! The War Machine Factory comes unlocked with a level 1 Sawduster. You do not have to worry about leveling up this building or unlocking it.
You will find your War Machine Factory just above Aphrodite’s Temple.
Enter the War Machine Factory
When you open your War Machine Factory, if you’ve been playing the Dragon Dimension for a long time, the landscape will look very familiar. It looks similar to what you would see in the Dragon’s Den before the Inferno, Hydro, and Terra Dragons joined the game.
On the first page, you will see your War Machine, the Sawduster. Here you can see the HP of the War Machine and where you have skill points allocated. You can also see the stat rating and current level.
Below the current level is where you will go to level up the Sawduster.
If you go to the building tab, you will simply see the max level of the War Machine Factory, there are not many details to be seen here as currently, the building maxes at level one.
At level one, you are given a War Machine March size of one, a War Machine rally size of four, and a War Machine reinforcement capacity of five.
The final tab you will see is your “skills” tab. This tab is where you will access your skills. You will see a “skill preset”; however, this is not available for use yet. You will also see a “Reset Skills.” Skill resets for the Sawduster are free.
To level up your Sawduster, you will need Sawduster Level Up Artifacts (Level 1-50). We have started collecting early costs for leveling up. As usual, these costs are community gathered. If you are able to help add to them or any are incorrect, please let us know.
The Sawduster Skills tree looks like a Hero skills tree. Your Sawduster currently maxes at level 50. The stats we will list here are the stats for a maxed Sawduster that is fully skilled for that particular node.
When skilling your Sawduster, the cost starts at one skill point per level; however, the skill point cost does begin to increase as your skill to higher levels. Be sure to choose your skills wisely.
There are two stats that apply specifically to our Sawduster. These stats are going to impact two different factors on your Sawduster.
- Sawduster Repair Speed – This skill is going to help your Sawduster repair at a faster speed (Max: 100%)
- Sawduster Count- This skill is going to increase your HP count on your Sawduster HP bar (Max: 2,195,000)
While there are other skills that are tied into your Sawduster, these skills are going to also be combat stats.
General Troop Stats
These stats are going to be troop stats—your troop attack, defense, and health that apply in a variety of situations.
- Regular Troop Attack (Max: 249,000%)
- Regular Troop Health (Max: 166,600%)
- Regular Troop Defense (Max: 306,900%)
- Troop Attack (Max: 166,000%)
- Troop Health (Max: 111,000%)
- Troop Defense (Max: 204,600%)
Your regular troop stats are going to exclude Strategic and Wild troops. In comparison, your other general combat stats will apply to your regular, strategic, and wild troops. This should create an interesting power dynamic amongst the troops.
Sawduster General Troop Stats
These skills are going to specifically play into the strength of your Sawduster. Due to how new this release is, there is still more knowledge and testing needed around these skills.
- Sawduster Attack (Max: 249,000%)
- Sawduster Health (Max: 166,600%)
- Sawduster Defense (Max: 306,900%)
These skills will apply in all combat situations.
Your attacker stats on the Sawduster will fall into two categories. You will have your normal Empire assault stats, but you will also have Sawduster Empire Assault stats.
- Empire Assault Troop Attack (Max: 374,000%)
- Empire Assault Troop Health (Max: 250,000%)
- Empire Assault Troop Defense (Max: 460,000%)
- Empire Assault Sawduster Attack (Max: 560,250%)
- Empire Assault Sawduster Health (Max: 374,850%)
- Empire Assault Sawduster Defense (Max: 690,525%)
These stats apply only when attacking other Empires.
Wonder players also get a great stat boost from the Sawduster. You will see stats for defending and attacking Wonder. Just like the attacker stats, you will see your normal Wonder stats and your Sawduster Wonder Stats.
- Wonder Rally Troop Attack (Max: 374,000%) (Use when Attacking Wonder)
- Wonder Troop Health (Max: 166,600%) (Use when Attacking or Defending Wonder)
- Wonder Defending Troop Attack (Max: 374,000%) (Use when defending Wonder)
- Wonder Defender Sawduster Defense (Max: 690,525%) (Use when defending Wonder)
- Wonder Defender Sawduster Health (Max: 374,850%) (Use when defending Wonder)
- Wonder Defender Sawduster Troop Attack (Max: 560,250%) (Use when defending Wonder)
There are a lot of stats in the Sawduster that are specifically for defending Wonder.
We don’t see as many defender-specific stats in the Sawduster. However, they are available and will be a help.
- Empire Defender Sawduster Attack (Max: 560,250%)
- Empire Defender Sawduster Health (Max: 374,850%)
- Empire Defender Sawduster Defense (Max: 690,525%)
These stats only apply to your Sawduster when it’s defending your Empire.
Finally, we have debuffs. These stats will apply specifically to your troops.
- Troop Attack Debuff (Max: 133,000%)
- Troop Health Debuff (Max: 88,900%)
- Troop Defense Debuff (Max: 163,700%)
When your Sawduster heads into combat and attacks or defends, you will lose HP. We are familiar with this concept due to our Dragons. Just like our Dragons, you will need to either allow your Sawduster time to heal or use a Sawduster Instant Repair to heal your Sawduster.
The Sawduster is great for every playstyle. It has stats for defenders, attackers, and Wonder players. When you are skilling ensure that you utilize the skills that best support your playstyle.
While the general combat stats are great for all types of players, other stats are specifically for other playstyles. There are still many unknowns about the Sawduster; however, these basics should get you started, and we will be bringing you more information as we learn how to use these new War Machines to their fullest.
