Nemesis Defense Gear Set
Regular gear is the most cost effective and safe gear you can have for a rally trap account. You can use it for as long as you want–the gear is permanent. Also, you don’t have to worry about presets or switching it in time before getting hit by a 1 min rally, and you don’t have to worry about getting hit a few times when you are looking away from the game or offline, then forgetting to switch to cores.
Once upon a time, players used cores for defense. This is currently not the case in Game of War.
Gem set research bonuses provide additional boosts for your trap. The best gems depend on the type of defense you are trying to maximize. Mythic Liberator is currently the best gem set for a defense-based trap.
Nemesis Lord Defense Set
While Anniversary World Slayer is bar far a better set now in Game of War Nemesis is still being used by some defense traps to defend against solo attacks and bait rally leaders to hit them. Let’s take a look at the stats of Nemesis Lord.
Quick Nemesis Lord Stats
- 8,000,000% Troop Defense
- 6,000,000% Type Defense
- 6,000,000% Legion Defense
- 10,000,000% Troop Health
- 100,000,000% Troop Attack
- 100,000,000% Empire Defending Attack Debuff
The Nemesis Lord’s Vengeance accessory stats are important to know when deciding whether or not to use Kinoichi’s Kunai. I explain more about the use of Kunia (daggers) below. Here are the stats for the accessory:
- 750,000% Troop Defense
- 200,000% Type Defense
- 400,000% Legion Defense
- 15,000,000% Type Attack
- 30% March Speed Debuff
Consider these stats when deciding to swap in Kunai. Also, consider what you lose when you break the 7 and 5 set bonuses.
Nemesis Lord Set Bonuses
The base set bonus of Nemesis Lord adds 5,000,000% Troop Defense and 20,000,000% Empire Defending Attack Debuff. The full set bonus provides 3,600,000% Type Defense, 80,000,000% Empire Defending Attack Debuff, and 140% March Speed Debuff. This is insane march speed debuff when wearing the full set.
If you decide to use one kunai then you lose the full set bonus and the stats of one accessory, or about 3,800,000% Type Defense, 750,000% Troop Defense, and 400,000% Legion Defense.
When wearing three daggers you will lose both set bonuses and the stats of three of accessories, or 7,250,000% Troop Defense. Rally leaders have around 15-20 million defense debuff. So, by going from 2x kunai to 3x kunai you will gain about 13% of the rally leaders defense debuff, or 1,950,000% Troop Defense on the low end to 2,600,000% troop defense on the high end. This is not worth the loss of Troop Defense from Base Set Bonus and the loss of accessory.
So, the best gear to trap with in the game is Nemesis Lord 5 piece set with 1 or 2 kunai, or Nemesis Lord 7 piece set bonus with zero kunai.
Here is an example of a player using this setup and the result against Hero 106 Tier 7 rally:
Sadly, I managed to kill or wound zero traps or troops! This setup is solid!
