Special Monster: Phantom Knight

The Phantom Knight is part of special IGG events, so to keep an eye on Events for when it will be available.

The event typically lasts 2-3 days. During the event, a specific number of these monsters will appear in each Kingdom (the news notice will usually say exactly how many). They typically appear every 3 hours at the same time as the regular monsters - check the Solo Event timer. Then check global chat. Often the coordinates of each Phantom Knight get shared as they are discovered.

However, if you discover one, don't share it in global! Keep it for yourself and your guild for as long as possible.

They are VERY strong, but drop very good loot. It is a great way to get Research Speed Ups and Holy Stars. If that's your goal, they are worth the energy and it is recommended to save energy and use it during this event. (If you're looking for monster materials, relocators, or shields, your energy is better spent on regular monsters.)

When hunting the Phantom Knight, you're going to want to do basically everything opposite compared to hunting a regular monster. For a regular monster, you want to use your best heroes, put on your best gear, and never use the DMG boost multiplier.

But for the Phantom Knight it is recommended that you use only one hero. Preferably your weakest. Only wear hunting gear that will give you a speed boost or energy increase. Try not use damage boost.

 And most importantly use the maximum amount of hits for each run.

Four reasons:
• The drops are better when you use the multiplier.
• The Alliance Chest is no where near as valuable as the loot it drops for hitting it. (I always get garbage.)
• If your enemy guilds aren't hitting it, the goal should be to make it live as long as possible to hit it as many times as possible.
• By using the multiplier, you decrease the number of Hunts in a Row and therefore decrease the bonus % in order to make the monster last longer.

Not everyone does this. Especially if the whole Kingdom shows up to hunt one. Some send 5 very good heroes (Phantom Knight is weakest to AGI heroes) and wear full gear to kill it as quickly as possible. That is a terrible waste, but at the same time it prevents others from getting the loot. Different strokes I guess.

Whatever your philosophy, get out there and hunt one! It's fun to see the swarms of arrows so thick you can't even find the monster.

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
