Kingdom and their color troops

I’m using GoWDb as a source of data. I’m keeping only copies on forum. Might add a googledoc spreadsheet, if you need one.

On

Did couple more runs, and…:
Green GW troop (auraio?) likes to spawn in forest of thorns. also seen yellow doom… so it seems like at least some of mono-colored troops apper in explore… most weird was… bogstrider in mist of scales.

i will keep my tables with commons excluded, but i’ll try to record ~100 explore fights in each kingdom and count statistics from these runs. might also publish full data from that

Recorded troops colors from 53 (missed one somewhere…) explore battle in pridelands:
killed 212 troops:
50 blue (23,58%)
67 green (31,6%)
110 red (51,89%)
106 yellow (50%)
62 purple (29,25%)
26 brown (12,26%)

Most were d1 figths, but managed to grab 1 mythic battle- Umenath. Killed 2 common troops: 1 pride hunter, 1 bandit. As for legendaries: 11 battles, 5 sekhmas, 6 behemots.

Now, let’s compare numbers i’ve got from battles vs gowdb.

source blue green red yellow purple brown
explore_data 23,58% 31,60% 51,89% 50,00% 29,25% 12,26%
gow_db_troops 29,41% 35,29% 47,06% 29,41% 29,41% 29,41%

we can see, that there was much larger number of yellow troops encountered than there are in Pridelands, almost as high as red ones and almost twice what was expected.
Purple number is basicaly similiar.
Green and Blue were all a bit under represented and Brown ones were half as would be…

I will continue data mining with Pridelands up to ~100 battles and publish whole results, but it’s looks like i’ll have to do another attempt for color-killing-optimisation.

Pridelands data, after 103 battles done:

source blue green red yellow purple brown
#of troops killed 102 130 214 203 120 51
% of all troops 24,76% 31,55% 51,94% 49,27% 29,13% 12,38%

And comparision table:

source blue green red yellow purple brown
explore_data 24,76% 31,55% 51,94% 49,27% 29,13% 12,38%
gow_db_troops 29,41% 35,29% 47,06% 29,41% 29,41% 29,41%

Blue, Green below expectations. Brown way to low.
Purple kind of on the spot.
Red above expectations.
Yellow way higher than expected.

During those 103 battles i enoutered 4 common troops -> 2 pride hunters, and 2 bandits (bandits always in legendary battle teamed with behemot…). Gives an average estimate of 1 common troop / 25 battles -> 1 common troop / 100 encountered troop. At this rate, playing on D2 or D3 will make you encounter Mythics more often than commons…

Next up: Dhrak-zum (to see if Dooms appear more often than ordinary commons) and Grosh-Nak (to see if GW troops appear more often than ordinary commons).
I’m also planning on doing 100+ explore runs in every kingdoms (starting from those that had their troops changed most recently), but that will take weeks -> doing Pridelands (mainly recroding troops) took me arround 3hrs… that multiplied by 34 kingdoms… gives 102hours -> 2 weeks of only exploring and recording troops.

Ofc, if anyone would like to join data gathering I’ll be pleased for any help.
I’m scouting each battle in explore and writting down data in simple format:

# blue green red yellow purple brown comments
1 1 1 2 2 1 1
2 1 2 2 2 1 0
3 1 1 3 1 2 0 legendary: sekhma
4 1 1 3 2 1 1 mythic: umenath

Dhrak-Zum made with 102 explore battles. 408 troops killed. 12 commons - all dooms. 20 Legends: 4 glaycions, 8 Hive Minds, 8 Kings Bloodhammer. 2 Mythics killed - one of each: Obsidious and Fallen Valdis.

Troop killed by their colors:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
#of troops killed 194 91 96 96 137 193
% of troops killed 47,55% 22,30% 23,53% 23,53% 33,58% 47,30%

And comparision with tables above:

source blue green red yellow purple brown
data_mined 47,55% 22,30% 23,53% 23,53% 33,58% 47,30%
gow_db_statistics 43,75% 18,75% 25,00% 31,25% 37,50% 43,75%

Blue, Green and Brown - a bit above expectation. Everything else - a bit below. Generaly pretty close to statistics.

Grosh’Nak:
Recorded 102 explore battle. 408 troops killed. 22 commons - 11 orcs, 11 orgryns. 22 legends: 7 Kraugar the Dread, 10 Sol’Zara, 5 Gar’Nok. 3 Mythics: all Gargantuar. 2 times, Gar’Nok was in team with Gargantuar.

Now table:

gow_db_stats 22,22% 50,00% 44,44% 11,11% 27,78% 44,44%

Blue and Purple above expectations. Brown at the spot.
Green, Red and Yellow below expectations.

Ok, here’s a table i’ll update slowly:

Few kingdoms were updated in last days. I’m too lazy to publish full stat runs for each one, but here’s one for Forest of Thorns. 102 runs taken. 408 troops killed. 2 mythics: one each, 20 legendaries: 5 alderfather, 4 gloom leaf, 5 king avelron, 6 sylvanimora. 6 commons killed-> all aurai

As for troop colors:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
408 134 237 82 146 93 120
data_mined 32,84% 58,09% 20,10% 35,78% 22,79% 29,41%
db_stats 30% 55% 10% 40% 30% 35%

Green, Blue sligthly above expectations. Red almost double (but it’s least popular troop color there).
Yellow, Purple and Brown below expectations.

Best colors to farm: Green, Yellow, Blue (anything that has less than 30% is not worth)

Finished Glacial Peaks and would like to write a bit about it.
So first, standard summary: 103 battles done, 412 troops killed. 3 mythics (all skadi, would be surprised if anything else); 21 legendaries: 4 queen Mab, 7 Borealis, 4 Mirror Queens, 6 Frostfeathers. 1 common troops: doom.

And this is where I would like to compare this run with Dhrak-Zum run:
Dhrak-Zum made with 102 explore battles. 408 troops killed. 12 commons - all dooms. 20 Legends: 4 glaycions, 8 Hive Minds, 8 Kings Bloodhammer. 2 Mythics killed - one of each: Obsidious and Fallen Valdis.

What’s same/similiar: number of mythics and legendaries killed. All troops that are common, were dooms. But Glacial Peaks had only 1 in 103 fights, while Dhrak-Zum had 12 in 102 fights. For both kingdoms Doom color is kind of dominant troop color (blue for Glacial Peaks, brown for Dhrak-zum), but for some reasons common troops were more common in Dhrak-zum.
Will check if similiar situations appear in other “doom” kingdoms, but it looks like (at least from 2/6 cases): if kingdom has a doom, it’s the only common troop you will see in explore.

Now the table:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
412 206 105 106 148 99 162
data_mined 50,00% 25,49% 25,73% 35,92% 24,03% 39,32%
db_stats 55,56% 22,22% 16,67% 44,44% 27,78% 33,33%

Blue below expectations. Yellow and Purple slightly below expectations. Green and Brown above expectations. Red way above expecation ( i blame Cernunnos on it! appeared in most battles).

Best colors to farm in Glacial Peaks: Blue, Brown, Yellow.

Also managed to do Shentang today: 104 battles total. 416 troops killed. 3 myhtics; 21 legendaries: 6 Lyrasza, 7 Qilin, 2 Emperor Liang, 6 Yao Guai. 5 commons, all dooms.

Common-doom theory confirmed for 3/6 cases.

Here’s a table:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
416 98 211 151 183 117 69
data_mined 23,56% 50,72% 36,30% 43,99% 28,13% 16,59%
db_stats 26,67% 46,67% 40,00% 53,33% 26,67% 13,33%

Green(moon rabbits!) above expectations. Purple(moon rabbits!) and Brown slightly above expectations. Blue and Red below expectations. Yellow way below expectations!

Best colors to farm in Shentang: Green, Yellow, Red

Blighted Lands done with 103 battles.
Total of 412 troops killed. 3 mythics. 21 Legendaries: 10 Dark Monoliths, 5 Infernal Kings, 6 Nocturnias. 0 common troops encountered
Probably 1st kingdom without commons at all…

Now, fact table:

Table (Kingdom and their color troops - #35 by Sytro) updated for Mist of Scales.

Here are some stats:
There were 101 battles done. 404 troops killed. 2 mythics (one each). 22 legendaries: 6 Basilisk, 5 Viper, 7 Venoxia, 4 Sledgepaw. 5 commons: all bogstriders.

With Dragon’s Claw finished I’m at 17 out of 34 kingdoms done. So half way there to make initial list.
My plan is to initialy fill whole table, and than update stats for each kingdoms after new troops are added. Last two kingdoms will be Leonis Empire and Blackhawk as these 2 haven’t appered in any of campaigns so far. Also: I’m still missing kingdoms with at least 50% for Yellow and Brown.

Here are some Dragon’s Claw stats:
103 battles done. 412 troops killed. 3 mythic: 2 Elemaugrim, 1 Ishtara. 22 Legendary: 4 Divinia, 9 Matron Dragotani, 9 The Dragon Soul. 37 common troops killed: 3 Baby Dragon, 6 Dragon Eggs, 28 Peryton

With Drifting Sands done, both of these are fullfilled.

Some time ago (7th of December 2020 to be precise) i’ve done Karakoth, but since not so long ago, it had it’s faction added it needed an update. Here i want to showcase the impact that faction introduction has on explore.

Original results were:
102 battles done. 408 troops killed: 2 mythics; 22 legendaries: 12 Abhorath, 10 Medea; 5 commons: all golems.

# blue green red yellow purple brown
408 141 124 120 55 243 130
Karakoth 34,56% 30,39% 29,41% 13,48% 59,56% 31,86%

With faction troops being:
1 blue/brown, 1 yellow/brown, 1 purple/brown for non-legendary
and 1 purple /red from legendary
I expected those numbers above to change:

Purple chance drop slightly (as only 1 of 3 non-legendary troops is purple)
Brown chance increase slightly(as 3 out of 3 non-legendary troops are brown)
Green chance drop (as no troops are green)

Here are result of post-faction, explore run:
103 battles done. 412 troops killed: 3 mythics; 20 legendaries (but 2 of my mini-boss battles didn’t include a legendary!): 7 Abhorath, 6 Medea, 7Nyar’Mal; 0 common troops.
70 battles included at least 1 faction troop (and some even 3!): 42 Dark Smiths; 54 Deep Dwarves; 3 Deep Golem; 7 Nyar’Mal
With these above it resulted with scores as below:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
412 147 96 104 82 200 196
Karakoth 35,68% 23,30% 25,24% 19,90% 48,54% 47,57%

Now simple comparision:

# blue green red yellow purple brown
pre-faction 34,56% 30,39% 29,41% 13,48% 59,56% 31,86%
faction 35,68% 23,30% 25,24% 19,90% 48,54% 47,57%
diff 1,12% -7,09% -4,17% 6,42% -11,02% 15,71%

What we’ve received:
Purple,Green,Red dropped.
Brown,Yellow increased. (change in Blue is ~1% so it’s omittable).

New week, will be Suncrest week and i should finish initial setup of table

Finished gathering initial values for each kingdom.

Below is a list of top 5 kingdoms in each color, with some extra stats:

  • chance is taken directly from main table
  • Min is the lowest number of troops of that color encountered in single explore battle
  • Max is the highest number of troops of that color encountered in single explore battle
  • Most Common is the most common number of troops of that color encountered in single explore battle
  • Average is average number of troops of that color encountered in single battle
  • Traitstones has information about color of traitstones gained in explore in this kingdom

All scores were gathered with 20 full runs in those kingdoms. Most of them were D1 explores

Biggest impact on yellow, which isn’t surprising as none of these troops was yellow.
What’s surprising is decrese in Brown, beacuse both new 2 troops are Brown… (blue/brown, red/brown). This decease is below 1%, which can be the result of natural differances in data gather.

One final note → tables above wont be updated in future.

most accurate table will always be in 1st post in this topic (and full table in post 35)

Here’s some fun:

Blackhawk. 1 troop was added, blue/green epic troop (Willy the Anchor). And here’s a comparision table between previous run and current one:

Even though, newly added troop had green color, green dropped by 6,5%… And red went up almost as high as green went down…
This would suggest, that data gathered for my tables is too small, and that presented results can differ with ~6,5%… I’ll keep track, especialy of those kingdoms where there’s only 1 troop differance since last data gathering…
