Dragon Campaign World Cup!
This is a step-by-step guide for the Dragon Campaign World Cup. This is the fastest way to set-up your castles. Remember you only have 30 minutes to get ready, so it is important.
I like to setup my castle in level of importance, because it's very hectic and easy to forget. You definitely don't want to forget the most important things, so first I go and setup my lord skills and hero skills into combat. After this, I go and open my equipment in my inventory. Make sure you put the appropriate equipment on the appropriate hero and the best equipment on your main lord. Remember some heroes have specific skills. For instance, Wind Ranger is an archer hero, so put your archer attributes on Wind Ranger. Other heroes are for infantry, so put the infantry attributes on the infantry hero. do this until all 6 heroes have equipment on. Next, you need to put the governor set on the Xun Yu hero. This will give you the march buffs and give you a larger attack size. Next put on the rebirth set for Rufus. This will give him two benefits. First, we will put him as recruitment hero when we train troops. Then switch him to doctor so you get his hospital capacity and healing speed bonuses during the battle.
Now that we have our heroes and lord skills/equipment figured out, we need to do our Dragon glass for the buffs it gives us before battle and then during battle. For level 5 glass you need to purify until you get the troop type you want to train - for most players that is Archers. For level 15 glass you want to purify until you get maximum rally troops. Level 25 glass you want to set defensive attack and defense. Level 30 glass you want to set for Offensive Attack. Every play in my opinion should break down their glass for level 15 because it makes it easier to hold buildings without switching to rally leaders. The 1% attack buff isn't worth the effort it takes to switch who is holding the building.
The Dragon Word is very important so we do this next. You need to activate an offensive and defensive Dragon Word. Go to the 8th order and activate God Slayer for offense and Fortification for defense. This is the most basic strategy for Dragon Glass. If you want to take things to the next level and feel confident you can get this done in time you can actually use grapheme stone Boot Camp for an extra boost for training speed, although I don't think it's worth the time and aggravation. A lot of people do so I will include that in this guide.
Now that we have our glass & stone done, switch to level 5 glass and go ahead and put your Rufus hero as the recruitment officer. Go to your wonder and activate level 2 light of glory, and if you think you have time, activate boot camp in the palace of Dragon Words then train around 200,000 - 300,000 gold worth of t10 troops. You do not get fine iron in the world cup season 2, so don't worry about higher tiered troops. Once you are done training troops put Rufus as your doctor position, and put your level 30 or 35 glass back on. Don't forget to put your god slayer grapheme stone back on. Then go to your wonder and turn level 6 Light of Glory on for attack buffs.
Go setup your Dragons. Activate Scartha as your Guardian then use the Black, Blue & other dragons to send out for battle. Use your talent points on the Blue and Black dragons. This part is pretty fast and easy, and means we are almost done.
Go into your items, and activate your buffs, as they give you a 100% march boost. You need to go to the store and purchase a 20% attack boost and a 20% defense boost. You can also purchase an anti-scout buff. Activate these buffs now, the battle is almost starting.
This is the last thing you need to do, but arguably the most important: you need to set your offensive & defensive layers. You can set up to 5 layers. I personally like to set my main offensive march, and my main defensive march. You will need to create your layers with your team. This is all very dependent on how you set up your lord skills, hero skills, grapheme stone, dragons, everything plays a role into what layers you will set for offense and defense, and arguably is the most important part of this setup. Talk with your 9 teammates and find out the layers you want to use. This season the meta is shifting and people are experimenting with different types of layers. We also now have t12 troops which are very strong. Set your offensive and defensive layers with your best heros, then setup layer 3, 4 & 5 with your support heroes.
This is my favorite time of year in Clash of Kings. I hope to see all of you in the grand finals.
