Demigods are here and we don’t know much yet but we do know this will be a game changer. Will the rise of the demigods send Game of War soaring? Or bring it crashing to the ground? This remains to be seen, however, Teamrealtips will be here to bring you the latest as we learn this new feature.
Table of Contents
Here is what we know so far:
- This appears to be a reset of sorts
- With the information given we know that old troops and creatures are unable to stand against these powerful demigods.
- We have been given some information in how these troops, creatures, and traps will work but much remains to be found with testing.
We are all waiting to see who will rise above all as great traps and leads to pave the way into the mysterious unknown.
The new demigod features come with a new Hero, the Spartan Hero. This Hero is able to be unlocked with your initial purchase and by utilizing hero experience you are able to take the hero to level 50. However, it is important to note that at level 50 you only receive 10 skill points. More will be needed in order to be successful. The skill tree for this hero is reminiscent of the old skill trees including economics and combat boosts.
Hero leveling up will take a while and is slightly expensive at this time. Check out the costs to level up your hero and the points you get at each level.
These buildings remain the same as your old buildings just with new higher levels and new stats.Getting your buildings leveled up will be of the utmost importance. In order to even begin research your academy is required to be level 1101. However, at this level you will not get much research done as the next research down in combat requires academy 1102 and opening Demigod Mythical level 2 and level 2 troops requires Academy 1110. In order, to begin to open these features you will definitely need to focus on building first.
There is new RSS that comes along with this upgrade, when upgrading your resource buildings you are able to flip production to demigod resources.
In addition, the barracks, villas, and hospitals give different boosts. Before you upgrade all buildings to 1100 you will want to choose what you want.
Barracks give Health
Hospitals give Defense
Villas give Attack
Demigod Buildings require Demigod Resources in order to level up. The research requires resources as well. At different levels different resources are required. In addition, different troops require different resources. Check out our chart below to see what resources are required for each troop, creature, and trap. In addition, this chart details what building level you can begin producing each resource at.
As with any feature there is of course research to be able to unlock the new features and information. All old research has been categorized into four slots in your academy as seen here:
While the new research is available in your top 3 slots, as seen here:
There are different places you can start when researching. Some have suggested that Economics to save on items is the best place to start. Especially, considering the fact that research, troops, and buildings all require resources.
However, others have suggested starting with combat to open troops. In the end it will come down to a personal decision. By starting with combat research you will get up and going faster, however, in the long run starting with economics will save you resources.
There are four levels of Demigod Troops. You have three types as well:
Each of these troops has a strength and weakness like our troops of old.
Waterlords are strong against Firelords
Firelords are strong against Thunderlords
Thunderlords are strong against Waterlords
In addition, as previously said there are four levels of these troops. We have their info here for you.
Currently there is no upkeep reduction for Demigod troops so you will need to be sure to watch when you are training as the will quickly run through all your food.
There are also new creatures. These are Demigod Mythics and these creatures can be further unlocked with research. Mythics are weak against troops but strong against traps.
There are four traps to unlock. You can see the stat info for these traps below. Traps are strong against troops but weak against Demigod Mythics.
The Testing Continues
With the game going in a whole new direction, everyone is fighting for every possible stat advantage they can get. Game of War now offers Demigod boost! This is sure to shake things up a little bit. To find out just how much TeamRealTips did some testing.
These boost are unlike all the boost before them. They appear to be just ordinary boost on the surface however there are major differences once you look deeper. First, these boost do not appear on a battle report however, they do show on scout reports. Meaning you won’t know if your enemy boosted unless you are able to scout them. This is great for traps acting offline . Secondly, you can now use demi attack boost and demi defense boost at the same time. They used to override each other. This was a great add. Lastly, you can now use boost while using anti scout. This is a huge change. As trapping becomes more and more relevant again this will be a very nice add.
TeamRealTips has broken down how these boost are different. Now it’s time to do some testing to see if they make an impact .
TeamRealTips ran four tests.
Starting with the top left. We did a baseline hit with no boost applied. The trap easily burned. The top right picture had attack boost applied. As you can see the number of troops the trap lost stayed the same, but the kills jumped almost 30%. So definitely made an impact. Using the attack boost also allowed the trap to kill enough of the incoming march to not burn. Next we have the bottom left image. This hit we used just defense boost. As you can see the defense boost was nowhere near as effective as the attack boost. The defense boost only saved 5% more troops, and the trap still burned. Lastly, we have the bottom right picture. This hit we used both attack and defense boost and it was the best hit by far. This hit was really a combination of the previous two hits. We were able to kill 33% more and lose 5% less.
After all that testing we see that the attack boost offers the most benefits, but the defense boost is still helpful. Luckily, you can use both at the same time. Hopefully this information will give you the boost you need to become a Game of War legend as the game returns to its Glory Days.
Looking at stats
We have continued testing and we are learning a lot. Some of the testing we are looking at is with gear. Today we were able to test several elements with the gear we currently have available to us.
First, we took one hit in our sandguard gear as a baseline hit.
Second we took a hit in Level 3 Berserker Gear. This gear has Demigod Attack and Defense. However, the defense is low in this gear.
Third we took a hit in Level 4, Bastion Gear. This gear has Demigod Trap Attack and Defense. The defense in this gear is High.
Fourth, we took a hit in Level 4 Bastion Gear with the Level 3 Berserker Weapon. This weapon provides Demigod Attack.
What do these tests tell us?
Notice that as my defense goes up the amount of my troops being killed goes down. However, so does the amount of troops I’m killing off my attacker. When I lower my defense by switching in the weapon I kill more of their march by adding Demigod Attack. The difference in the amount I lose is minimal.
Due to this we know that there needs to be a balance between attack and defense for traps. Traps can no longer just focus on Health and Defense but they also need the troop attack to help kill the march. We will continue to explore this topic more and test. Let us know what questions you have in comments below.
The Testing Begins
The testing begins and we began by looking at exactly how strong these new creatures are. Based off of this we have learned three things.
- Old creatures, troops, and traps are no good for defense. All of these creatures can be wiped out with only 1 troop. No exaggeration, 1 Troop will kill all of your old friends.2. Old creatures, troops, and traps are no good for attack. Once again the same theory prevails. One troop will kill any of your old friends that you use to attack, and then your new stuff will kill your one troop.3. Trapping will be possible again. We took a hit from about 1 million Demigods. We had only 243k Demigods and old troops. The attackers march killed everything we had, however, because we were able to kill the attackers entire march and lose less we still capped the hero.
Overall, all of these features interact with each other. As you open more research you open more content. Traps and Creatures come into play and have weaknesses when it comes to different troops and creatures.
There is a lot of information still to discover regarding setups and how this will all pan out. However, Teamrealtips will be here to keep you up to date. Watch for articles to be updated and published as we learn more.
