Hero Battle Skills

What are Battle Skills?
These are the skills that will help you in battle and grow your Turf. Hero Battle Skills have three types: Tactical, Logistical, and Administrative.

Each hero has one unique tactical skill and then a combination of 3 Administrative and/or Logical Skills.

When Do They Unlock?
The tactical skill is unlocked as soon as you hire the hero. The first battle skill unlocks when the hero reaches rank 2. The second, rank 4. The third, rank 7.

How Do They Activate?
Tactical and Logistical Battle Skills are only active when that specific hero is in battle. He doesn't have to be the leader - just in the Battle. Administrative Battle Skills are automatically activated as soon as you hire that hero.

Before Assigning Heroes
Look at what your heroes do before assigning them. Don't send heroes with only Administrative Battle Skills (like Trickster) into battle. Don't use heroes that only have siege Logistical Battle Skills (like Prima Donna or Incinerator) if you don't send siege or if you're assigning heroes to your wall. Choose carefully so you don't accidentally suck up a spot someone who could do something to aide could be in.

Battle Skill Grades
Each Battle Skill has a percentage scale that increases as you upgrade your hero. All heroes start off as common and you can upgrade them by collecting or purchasing medals.

For example, let's look at Oath Keeper's Infantry HP Boost. When he is common (grey), it is a 2.5% boost. When you upgrade him to uncommon (green), the skill gets a 5% boost instead. These don't stack - they just replace each other.

As you collect more medals and continue to upgrade your heroes, the boost gets bigger. Different skills have different percentage scales, but every skill is enhanced when the hero is upgraded.

Tactical Battle Skills
Tactical Battle Skills are unique for each hero. This is the skill at the top and gives you a squad bonus. It is activated as soon as you hire the hero and increases by upgrading your hero.

This skill gives the squad this hero is commanding a boost based. A squad is 1/4 of that specific troop type. In general, the Tactical Battle Skills aren't as useful as Logistical Battle Skills when you're in combat. I would recommend using heroes with applicable Logistical Battle Skills unless there is a significant difference in grade.

Logistical Battle Skills
These skills are used in combat. If the hero has more than one logistical skill, they will all be active as long as the type of skill applies to the battle.

If it is an army boost, there doesn't need to be any of the troop type that hero specifically commands sent to the battle; it helps if there is because then you get the tactical skill boost on top of the army boost, but it's not necessary.

If the skill is troop specific you need that troop type in the Battle to get the boost. However, keep in mind that only 4 heroes of the same commanding troop type will be able to command a squad (there are only 4 squads of each troop type). If sending a single troop type into combat, I like to use 4 of that troop type and one with an army boost.

Trap ATK, Trap HP, and Trap DEF skills only come into play when your turf is attacked, so those heroes must be stationed in your wall in order to get the boost.

There are 18 Logistical Battle Skills.

Administrative Battle Skills
These are activated as soon as the hero is hired and stay active. He does not need to be the leader. Admin skills are generally used to enhance your account - make things faster, better, and easier.

There are 12 Administrative Battle Skills.

Darknest Rallies

T's Ultimate Darknest Rally Guide Victory over a Darknest isn't just about how many troops you send at it. It's about which troops and why. Sure, you might be able to beat it by just throwing a ton of troops at it, but you'll end up with more wounded than necessary. Why Do Darknest Rallies? It's basically free loot. Random, but you don't need to do much for it other than hold the rally correctly and heal some troops. Troops sent to a Darknest will never die unless you don't have room in your Infirmary. There are 5 grades of essence just like gear and heroes and... well, pretty much everything. The grade goes up with the Darknest levels. Level 1 nests give you common up through level 5 nests giving you legendary. Theoretically, the higher the essence, the better the loot. I say theoretically because sometimes you cook an epic one for 12 hours and still get something useless to you and other times you do a common one and get something you need

Can I Take This Hit?

Can I Take This Hit? Alright, let's do the math. I loathe maths, so you're lucky I like you guys. The ratio for troops is: 1 T4 = 1.5 T3s 1 T4 = 2.25 T2s 1 T4 = 4.5 T1s 1 T3 = 1.5 T2s 1 T3 = 3 T1s 1 T2 = 2 T1s Now that's the base troop. No research, no talents, no nothing. Without an army boost scroll the max a 25 castle can send is 250k. Castle max of 200k plus 5 Rank 8 heros at 10k each. With a 50% scroll, it's 375k. Eating a Rally Level 25 Battle Hall holds 2m plus the leader's troops. So, let's pretend the leader popped a scroll and they actually fill it. Also pretend they fill it with T4s. That's 2,375,000 troops. If every single one of them is a T4, you'll need a minimum of: 2,375,000 T4s or 3,562,500 T3s or 5,343,750 T2s or 10,687,500 T1s Now that doesn't include the leader's research, talents, gear, any ATK boost scrolls, 10% Army ATK from having a 25 Battle Hall, prisoners, alter boosts, or any titles. You'

Heros: Types, Grades, Levels, & Ranks

There are four different types of characteristics that are important determining factors of various aspects of a hero. - Attribute type determines which basic attribute increases ATK. - Grade determines the boost percentage of the Battle Skills. - Level determines the amounts for the Hero Skill bonuses and the ability to equip Trophies. - Rank unlocks Battle and Hero Skills and Trophies affect the hero's statistics. For monster hunting, hero stages, and the Colosseum, heroes with a higher level and rank tend to be more important than heroes with a higher grade. Grade does also add to their statistics, so a higher grade is better than a lower grade, but in general, grade is not a huge factor for anything but their Battle Skill %. The opposite is also true. If you're looking at Battle Skills, a hero with a higher grade will be more effective than a hero at a higher level or rank. Rank does increase command, which will ultimately give you more troops and a hero with
