So far away we wait for the day!


Keep Calm and Harvest Some Poor Gorgons’ hearts


Given how many hours I’ve put into Gems of War, “lives so wasted and gone” may be the more appropriate line from the song.


Tier 3 Sigils ( ~ 79 battles )

x 30 guild members required for Stage 12 rewards.
From the below image, best Tier 2 luck (75 battles) still won’t reach 867.
On the other hand, Tier 3 gets at least 81 battles, at least 883 points.


* Correction as per Hisspa’s post further below

There is only one optimal path => take Gorgon only when it is the only troop available

On the assumption that the map mechanics have not changed

  • there is only one preset stream of “replacement” troops for each troop battled
  • the first 14 (or 15) replacements are preset from the first 3 possible troop types
  • the next 15 replacements are preset from the first 4 possible troop types
  • the following 15 replacements are preset from the first 5 possible troop types
  • the remaining replacements are preset, but can be any of the 6 troop types

And given

  • there are no random multipliers


  • everyone using just free sigils will reach phase 4 (losses aside)
  • everyone will reach a state when there will only be Gorgons on the map
  • from then on, taking any map position causes the same preset “next” troop to replace it
  • everyone on the same number of battles without losses and avoiding Gorgons will have the same number of points
  • the number of tiers to buy for an equal point share in a /30 guild is directly observable from the leaderboard at these minimum breakpoints at worst Valraven luck (60=Tier 0, 66=Tier 1, 71=Tier 2, 81=Tier 3)


  • There is a new weapon. Just buy it (Tier 4)
  • If half of your guild are veterans buying into Tier 4 (+11 battles), the other half need only buy to Tier 2 (-10 battles).

It figures that Wild Plains is next week’s event kingdom when there is a Vault weekend scheduled. Depending on which troops get a 10% or 20% stats bonus, I might have to alter my preferred Wild Plains E1 team, Dust Devil and 3 Ironhawks. Normally, only Soul Gnome and mythic bosses would have more than 20 total life and armor in Wild Plains, rare enough that I can use my preferred team without too many slower battles. But some other troops may exceed that threshold with stats bonuses, so I might have to change it up a bit.

Gorgon is not an Epic troop, it’s Ultra-Rare

This event must be celebrating Elwyn’s world record 100% Expert clear of Through the Fire and Flames on Lute Hero 3.


Here are the images to help you this week:

Reward Tiers:


Wild Ways World Event
Tier Buy in per member to close all rewards: Tier 3 (between 77 & 78 battles)




Thx for the new weapon this time.
Should be more often as a good motivation for all players to buy more tiers.
