Why Not Send Trickster?


Trickster and I have a love/hate relationship.

First and foremost, you DO NOT need Trickster as your leader to get his research or hunting boosts. They are Administrative Battle Skills and are active no matter what. Unless he's your leader and has been captured, you're getting those boosts as soon as you unlock them.

Next, he is NOT a war hero. I've been asked, "What do you have against Trickster? He's got Squad damage for ranged troops. I can send him with my ranged troops and he'll give me that boost."

Squad damage does do something, but lets be realistic. Tracker, Death Archer, and Snow Queen are going to be more effective in the long run because of their Ranged ATK battle skill. The squad damage boost is limited to 1/4 of that particular troop type. Ranged attack battle skill effects every single ranged troop. And if someone has a legendary Trickster, but Tracker and Snow Queen are still uncommon and you're running ranged enough that this is even a topic of concern, it might be time to sweep some stages and collect metals.

Nine times out of ten, the Squad boost alone just plain isn't as good as the Squad boost plus an ATK Battle Skill and I will always advise to never send Trickster into battle be it Showdown or real. If you're just starting out and you're only sending ranged troops, then maybe send Trickster if he has a higher grade than your other ranged heroes.

I love Trickster! He's awesome! He's a really useful hero! His Administrative Battle Skills are amazing! But he's not a warrior. Use him in the Colosseum and doing Hero Stages. Have him hunt monsters that are weak to physical attacks. Send him to gather to get a command boost to send more troops. But when it's time to fight with troops? Let him cheer you on at home.

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

Army Capacity vs Army Size vs Army Limit

What is the difference between Army Capacity, Army Size, and Army Limit? They all sound kind of similar, but what do they actually mean and how do you increase them? Army Capacity Army Capacity is the amount of resources a troop can carry. You can increase it with talents, research, and gear.This statistic is only about carrying resources, but it is applicable for all situations where you would carry them. So if you're gathering from a tile or raiding a castle, increasing this number will mean you can use less troops to carry the same amount of resources. Increasing Army Capacity Army Size Army Size is the number of soldiers you can add to your army. The number of troops you can send is determined by your castle level, plus the command of any heroes sent with that army. You can increase this with Castle Level and Hero Rank. You can also temporarily boost it by using a Max Army Size Turf Boost. Army Limit Army Limit is the number of different grou
