Delves: Strategies, tactics and tips

Can we get an updated chart with the new factions after Tinker Town? Thanks for making this.

I’d put Tinker Town in easy considering how many people I’ve heard have just done it on the first try with a max hoard of 100 and no potions, myself included. I suspect Emperinazar falls under the same category, maybe a bit harder; haven’t gotten there myself yet so I couldn’t say for sure.

If anything, it’s easier, as the opponent can’t get as lucky and kill you out of nowhere (Destructobot).

It’s just a waiting game in Emperinazara. In Tinker Town, it’s waiting plus roulette.

Except the roulette can also make the enemy self-destruct most of their team and shorten the ordeal.

I dunno, I have a sample size of one and I’m trying not to remember it even though it was only 10mins~.

It’s true that the enemy self destructs potentially shortens the battle but it relies too much on luck. Plus it doesn’t necessarily make it easier than Emperinazar (although Tinker Town is still on the easier category in terms of delve difficulty). The Emperinazar final battle does take a long time but it honestly felt safer than Tinker Town to me.

Sorry, im going to repost this message here. It’s going to be easier to update.

If someone is interested, I’ve made a playlist with all faction maxed you can find in youtube (with and without potions). I put some informations about the videos on its respective descriptions/comments.

I wonder if its worth comparing stats at the beginning of delves and delves after medals… in that time gap, way more stats became available to people from kingdom bonuses/faction stat bonuses/medals. like 100 true hoard + 3 nysha medals provides more magic than a 200 hoard and a lot of the problems of the early delves was low magic more than health/armor…

Yep, i know. The only thing i can do is priorize the old WR instead the new ones (like jzg ones, …). But if the time gap isnt that high (like werewoods) i priorize the lowest True Hoard.

Yeah… that WR ASE with 60 magic would have been way easier than my successful 44 magic attempt with 199 hoard with no medals, no epic tasks, lacking kingdom level stuff etc. since it would have been easier to prevent their Ocularen Leech from re-draining your attack or draining the attack of Xerodar.

and I might actually argue my 199 Hoard back near the beginning with no Epic Tasks, no Medals, no renown bonuses, kingdom bonuses and what not provided less stats than what Magnus had to work with the 50% kingdom and 3 season medals. My Gargoyle only had 42 Magic lol.

I guess that just gets me a better result for Fell Roost. Arguably the 50% stats are better than going from hoard 100 to hoard 111.

I would have thought I’d have beaten Eldrazhor but I seem to have given up on that. Emperinazar will probably be within the week?

You tryin’ to dethrone me, @TheIdleOne?

Leave it to a thief to try and depose an orc while he rests from War! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(Totally agree that it’s hard to compare who truly holds the record on anything, though, unless every contributing factor is actually reported, and they never are. This is one reason I rarely post about pure-clears anymore, as I find my posts are only useful at this point if I’m employing a strategy others have not yet proposed, but it seems most have caught on to the turtling-measures I seem to favor)

Thanks for this, bookmarked :slightly_smiling_face:

There is no such thing as delve without potions if your horde is at a level that provides stat boosts akin to those provided by potions in events. It’s just a variation of the same thing.

An Orc should never let his or her guard down; an Orc cousin is always around the corner waiting to take the throne away. :gem_doomskull:

Its not the same thing.

Potions: temporary stats bought with premium currency to win more for a short time.

Delve Hoard: permanent stats paid for by earned in-game currency that everyone has access to. Doesn’t come with most of the best parts of potions, like 25% skull reduction, barrier to all at the start of battle, enchant all etc. etc.

You can’t pay to win a delve hoard reasonably. (and bless any poor fellow that willingly pays 240 gems for 75,000 gold from the shop repeatedly)

Well, I, chunky mono, was the first to raise a hoard to 353 to do ASE before potions were introduced…that’s not exactly something to brag about tho. I should’ve read the forums back then.

I’m not sure how many people have a hoard higher than 353. That in itself is an interesting note! Orcish Ingenuity?

I have a head (I think it’s Elvish, but it is quite disfigured and my memory isn’t as good as it used to be) start on the future achievement “Raise a Hoard to 1,000”. :slight_smile:

Edit: I hope there is never a future achievement for that, and I do not wish to speak it into existence. My bad. thumps chest

HAR HAR HAR, YES!

Chunky Mono is da BIGGEST and da BADDEST of da ORCS.

His brain is his warhammer and so it is BIG and STRONK.

(and I have it on good authority he would never betray me. If he wins this game of thrones, it will be a proud moment as my nose is crushed beneath the might of his fist, as my friend will have fought me face to face on equal ground. He does not skulk in corners with a dagger like filthy elveses)
