To stay competitive in battle, you need to adapt your strategy and customize your army to meet any situation. Training Garrison can be used to promote your Troops to higher tiers including T5 Elite Troops and different Troop types – all for a lower cost than it takes to train new Troops! Access the Training Garrison building with the Training Garrison Foundation item.
The Training Garrison is fantastic for new players looking to upgrade their troops on par with their recently unlocked higher tier AND for trap players who want to adjust their troop type strengths without dismissing and retraining troops.
Training Garrison – Game of War
Unlocking and leveling up this structure requires Bonus Club Membership and allows you to:
• Promote Troops to Higher Levels! – Raise Troops up to even higher Tiers. If you have a surplus of Troops at Tier 1, but need to beef up your army with higher ranks, promote them!
• Change Your Troop Type! – Restructure your army to a different troop type to counter the most popular missile core type. More on this below.
Upgrade your Training Garrison with Training Manuals to unlock the full potential of this structure, as well as increasing your Queue Size, Promotion Speed, and more!
Further increase this building’s potential with special Boost Items, including: Promotion Silver Cost Efficiency, Promotion Resource Cost Efficiency, and Increase Promotion Speed.
To change your Troops’ Tiers and Troop types, you first need to have these Troops Researched in the Combat, Strategic Combat, and Wild Combat trees in your Academy. Whether you have an excess of Troops that you’re not using, or you want to strengthen your forces without the cost of training Troops, the Training Garrison is your best option!
Training Garrison and Tier 5 (T5)
In order to unlock Tier 5 – Fire Troops – Elite Troops you must upgrade the Training Garrison to Level 17. Level 17 requires an Elite Troop Manual.
Once you’ve upgraded to Training Garrison 17 you can research each type of Combat T5 Elite Troops.
Also, promoting to Tier 4 to Tier 5 will save about 25% of resource and speed up costs initially with no New Resource Training Cost Research completed. However, once you’ve completed Resource Training Cost Reduction research, training Elite Troops will be about 5% cheaper.
Training Garrison Strategy
The above introduction and background you may have read from the in-game Game of War blog, but I’m sure you still have a ton of questions. I know I did after reading it. I’ve also leveled up the Garrison and still have questions. Mainly, WHAT THE HECK IS THIS THING FOR?! Now we know, T5 Elite Troops.
Promote Low-Tier Troops
Your Training Garrison is used for promoting troops from one tier to another. New players can use it to promote or upgrade their troops to newly unlocked tiers. Veterans of Game of War may have forgotten what it was like just starting GoW and unlocked tier 3 or tier 4 troops and wondered what they were going to do with all those tier 2 or t1.
Some of us sent these troop at people as cannon fodder. Others used them for farming. Finally, others saved them for “meat shields.” Now, new players can use the Training Garrison to promote them to more productive troop tiers!
You can also use the Training Garrison if you are transitioning from a trap and into a rally leader. A trap player typically has multitudes of lower-tier troops which are used as a type of shield or “meat shield” as some call it in Game of War. Once this player moves up to rally leader status these lower-tier troops cease to be of much help. They’d be more useful as Tier 4 troops for rallying.
Training Garrison Trap Restructuring
A cool use of the Training Garrison is to help restructure a trap.
Single Troop Type Traps
Game of War has a progression of strong cores for each troop type. Some trap players use one or two of the troop types in Game of War – Infantry, Ranged, Cavalry – and wait for a rally leader they best counter. This type of trap is common when one troop type core set is used more often than any other.
For instance, when Nike Core Set was first introduced it was very popular, everyone was using it. Observing this popular use, many trap players created ranged only solo and rally traps. However, Game of War released Artemis and Bacchus which made an all ranged trap very risky.
Without your Training Garrison, restructuring your trap requires potentially dismissing troops or sending them to their death on someone’s wall. Then you must retrain other troop types to ensure you have the best possible troop structure. Now, with the Training Garrison, you can promote them to a different troop type and save speeds, resources and time!
