The best trap build in Game of War Titan Overlord Gear.
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 Gem Set is currently the best gem set for a defense-based trap.
Resolute Defense is your saving grace in Game of War at the moment. It can't be debuffed by anything, not even Defense Annihilation. This set has plenty of it!
Now compare this set with former defense sets.

Buildings for Best Trap
When building a trap you want to know which stats you are chasing. Defense is usually the go to for most trap players. However, defense debuff and defense annihilation of top rally leaders make it difficult to retain any defense. The defense debuff lowers your defense and defense annihilation lowers the remaining combined defense even further. Only resolute defense is untouchable and cannot be debuffed or lowered by any means in game. So, you control your resolute defense.
The second stat that is prevalent among traps is attack debuff. Top rally leaders are approaching 100 trillion troop attack in addition to other attack types. However, troop attack debuff applies only to troop attack. While troop attacks, I've looked, there is not much available in the game.
Third stat that prevents losses on our trap is health. Health has not been in the forefront of Game of War for quite some time. But its back and with a vengeance!
Each Hospital 36 provides 1 billion health! Apply your Altar Health skill and it adds an additional 80% or 800m! I have switched all my barracks save one to hospitals and now I have over 30 billion health!
I've taken rallies from the best leaders in the game and came out of it only losing 1 trillion to deaths, and 22 trillion to hospital beds. My trap is Stronghold 36, 24 KT power, with 1.15 KT troops. I am in Full Nemesis in this screenshot:
As you can see I really only lost 1 trillion troops. In a time when rally leaders like this one are one shot zeroing 2 MT players, I'll accept my 178 trillion power loss.
So, add one villa and barrack for upgrade and training purposes. The remaining tiles should all be hospitals. Don't worry about your troop queue from loss of barracks. You will find that troop queue does not reduce much. Your troop queue is increased from research and hero skills.
Troop Mix for Best Trap in Game of War
I recommend an even mix of troops for your "meat shield" or low troop tiers that protect the higher tiers. On my trap I am using a T2/T4 ratio of 12. I also have added a wall of T1 since they cost nothing to heal. I prefer no losses but when I do have troops that fall in battle, I want them to be free to heal.
I suggest training tier 4 first then train 12x that amount of tier 2. Its important to use proper ratios due to the ever present and dangerous troop power nerf penalty. I recommend reading about and using our Nerf Calculator.
Final Comments on the Best Trap Build in Game of War
This new trap setup is really easy. I've given you the essentials. The insane health boost from the hospitals give your troops some much needed security. They are no longer "squishy". This is a term rally leaders use when they hit a target for big troop kill counts. These targets are squishy because they've relied 100% on defense stat and failed to get their health up for when the defense
