    I have noticed a huge difference between the points made and charms. I don't know about anyone else, but the difference between 10 charms and 150 charms depending on how much points you have made is much bigger than a difference of only 4 to 6 charms. With the addition of commander equipment and base food build items for charms it makes sense though that the amount of charms you can make for a maximum amount would be much higher than only 6. Players who really want the 50 and especially 150 charms for example might have to send more than just a few troops and no tools even on hard mode possibly.

    What equipment piece should I buy first?
    The commander equipment and base food items are the newest additions to the game, but for equipment pieces I would think that charm equipment would be much easier to get than those that cost of insignias. Obviously, gems might be needed eventually at some point if you really want the full set, but I would start getting charm equipment first before getting charm gems and before getting the more expensive insignia equipment and gems.

    Now obviously you can also get two different decorations as well that costs charms including the newer "pool of summoning" for 280 public order that was only recently added for the cost of charms as another option to spending it on instead of insignias, but if you really want the equipment first instead of getting any charm decorations then I would recommend getting the equipment and hero first before getting any charm gems or charm decorations.

    The insignia equipment on the other hand since it would take much longer to get the full set I would not recommend buying any pieces of the equipment until you at least have enough insignias to buy all four pieces of equipment or all four pieces of the equipment plus the hero before buying any so that way you will not have to worry about any equipment or gems sitting around in the storage for months before it finally can be for good use. After you buy all of the equipment plus the hero then you start buying insignia gems for it as well. The reason for buying all of the equipment plus hero first before buying the gems is because you could just as easily use different gems for the equipment and gradually replace them later on as you progress more towards getting the full set and you get most of the melee and ranged bonuses from the equipment instead of from the set. (The 20% melee and ranged for "Castle Lords" instead of "NPC" would add on to the 90% at maximum level from the equipment of Master commander. Same is also true for 10% from the Apprentice commander.)

    Although they are powerful gems apparently you can only get these gems and equipment from the Shapeshifter once which means you could use the gems on the Foreign commanders, but it may cost a lot of rubies to remove if you want to include them in the original set.

  • I think the amount of blue charms awarded needs changing.

    On some hits i just sent 32 on full hardcore and won 50 charms, on some attacks I sent a proper hit on normal mode with decent tools and still only got 50 charms.

    I appreciate that the number of charms is based on red points but cant help but think it needs maybe another tier

    something like 700-1100 red points = 100 blue charms?

    What equipment piece should I buy first?
    insignia weapon and gem:master blade and earth or ice run. This will give you amazing high stats on wall and ranged with just 1 weapon.

    just in case anyone wondered, the best results we encountered so far were a full 6 wave attack against an almost empty castle on full hardcore mode. Got us 2000 red points and 150 blue charms

  • nice one mate thanks

    just got 2200 for a 6 wave full hardcore hit on 700 defenders

    I'd estimate 1.5k at most.

    Yep , Actual PvP hits give less than easy snipes that can be done by anyone with a pair of brain cells.
    Point system is stupid.

    Ok for my sins did 4 fully tooled attacks last night and only 1 gave any decent points (500)

    - the other attack was 5 waves t/c and 6th wave 20/20/20 USING DEFENDERS - and got same points as the other tooled attacks ! (200ish)

    - so i'm not going to waste tools trying for extra tokens - will just send as my 5th attack blind and accumulate the tokens ! saving tools !

    Edited : hope this gives some people the easy way to score a few points ! :blush:
