Hi everyone, we going to do our first Guild War on console this week and i was wondering if some people on pc/mobile got some tips or advice for us before we start.
I see lot of complain about devour and Death mark but is there anything else we should know?
1- Check each day that your defense teams are set. They tend to disappear.
2- If you have obtained a Famine or two make sure to have them in your defense teams on all days in the GW
3-The color bonuses can be significant. Try to use a team with all four troops of the days’ color. Depending on the levels of your statues, it can triple your score.
4- Also, troops that can summon other troops or that bring something out when they die are useful since you also get a bonus for the number of troops you have alive at the end of the match. Someone like Kerberos that can bring out Wargs when an enemy gets killed can be useful to fill an empty slot at the very end of the match to get that bonus.
5- if you want to practice before doing the real battle, you can scout enemy defense team and set them as your defense team in regular pvp then try different team and see what work better for you
6- if you need help with mono color team there is a link with some suggestions. Mono Color Team Help
7- there is a sheet to help you calculate points https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hvL6AijrIk4B2HHAh0A9yh3J7jVHlN2DV54fINvRkV8/edit#gid=934207922
8- this is a link for Guild Wars FAQ Guild Wars - FAQ
9- Don’t stress. No-one can get full points every day of every week, even with a full collection. Lower level players or those with a smaller collection should feel free to use an existing strong PvP team with 2 or 3 of the day’s colours. Some days are really hard unless you have specific mythics.
10- By the same token, do consider how to make changes to your meta invade team to increase points. Why not add an empowered troop of the day’s colour at the front of your team? E.g. you normally use Krystenax, sylvanimora, TDS, Shadow Dragon. On red day use, scale guard, krystenax, TDS and emperina. The core of the team is the TDS and nax tag-team which can still be played unimpeded.
11- Those using all-colour teams will find that battles take a lot longer. Your teams are much less efficient. This requires you to rethink the usefulness of some traits and spells. Troops that were previously too slow to be of much use are suddenly awesome. Abynissia’s third trait is a great example of this. As are arcane, frenzy, many heal/cleanse spells/traits etc.
