"A place for everything, and everything in it's place"

There is a lot of discussion on how to tackle the Lighthouse Missions.  While each player has a technique for Lighthouse Missions (of which I won't share my own here), there is an ideal and straight forward unit for doing Adventure missions.  That unit is the Gear units.

In the Adventure missions, you are guaranteed a payout.  You actually can see the payout.  They are Brethren Units and Dread Fleet Units.

Now, one could use Brethren Units to tackle the Adventure missions, but that would be silly.  It would be trading units you have won for slightly more units you can win (ie, it is not efficient.)

Alternatively, you can build units to tackle them.  Here, we have several options.  But let's investigate each.

You could build low tier units, say for instance Marauders, but why?  Those units are actually useful int he Lighthouse Missions .  If you haven't read it, you have to loose resources in the Lighthouse Missions to obtain your payout.

So if we don't want to use Brethren troops on the Adventure missions, nor do we want to use low tier resource units, what do we have left?  Gear units, and there are two reasons they are ideal.

First and foremost, using/loosing gear units in Lighthouse missions does you no good.  They cost gears to build.  And gears don't count as resources lost.

Second, they are more efficient to be built.  They cost fewer "hard" resources like gold and lumber, and cost no rum to construct.  So if you are trying to be efficient with your resources, then this is the unit to build to be used in the Adventure missions.

I'll spare you the math (so that you have the challenge to understand it yourself), but the Volley Cannon > Duelist, and the Aquanaut >Gunslinger, in raw terms of efficiency of your resources.

There is a puprose to many units in the game.  Be them like daggers--fast but fragile units--or gear units.  Gear units are to be used on Adventure missions because they are the most efficient use of your resources to win the Adventure prizes.

You are right they should not be using my secrets page and they know where it is, on our webpage thats where ,so stop trolling about stuff you dont know about, they have been told also to stop with posting info they get from me or learned from me.(Unless someone gives me the amount of rubies you get for trolling peoples posts and knowing nothing about this game) *winks* back . 

 

This is a game of tactics and secrets ,not to help others get ahead. your job is to answer simple questions or control posts , not to let people know things they should not. so as gut says things for a certain place

HAR HAR.. but i disagree..this be a game of Strategy & Tactics
This is a game of Brotherhoods.. you must mean don't help those outside your BH.
his is exactly the kind of game to help others in your brotherhood to advance and get ahead.

no man stands alone. certainly not I. The strongest strategy is to work together as a groups not to play selfishly.
I have seen to many players come and go because they felt alone and unsupported.. it happens to the best of us.

 I admire my adversaries for playing well even at my own expense.

As long as they are gracious winners.. ROFL..

Friend or Foe - Good Job to Everyone.
