Nike Core Set: Stats, Recipe, Set Bonus, and Hero Skills


Nike Core Set

The Nike Core Set is a first-of-its-kind Infantry Missile Set with multiple troop type Defense Debuff that is perfect for heroless targets. Even 13.4 billion troop Strongholds!

Game of War took notice of the Custom Debuff Sets being made and provided players with easier access to such sets. Rather than attempting custom in your Forge, the Nike Core Set is exactly what you need for Defense Debuff.

Nike Core Set Stats

If your Nike set is gemmed, with set bonuses in place, it will have:

2263% Troop Attack
4315% Infantry Attack

The following are the bonuses of a typical set without Set Bonus or Gems:

The stats of this set are everything you need to burn a huge heroless Stronghold with an estimate 13.4 billion troops.

Nike Core Set Burns 13 Billion Troop Stronghold!

Nike 13 billion troop burn

This burn of 13.4 billion troops is incredible! But hey, at least he saved 210,000 in his Hospital!

What is also incredible is that King of KING was able to obtain, craft, set on a heroless target just a few hours after the set was released…

The verdict on Nike is that… it’s pretty darn great. Those of you running around in Nike gear better not lose your hero.

Nike and Ctesse Burns 356 Billion Player with Hero

Ctesse recently burned a player with 11 billion troops while his hero was at home!  The player let his cores burn out and didn’t equip his normal gear.  He thought he was safe from any rallies, but he thought wrong.  Ctesse, with the help of Nike cores, was able to set him ablaze!
