Troop stats in Guns of Glory largely decide whether you are going to win or lose a battle. The only other determining factors in this are the total march capacity and troop formation, other then that Troop Stats trumps all. So, with that said, how do you insure your troop stats are as high as possible and how do you view your current troop stats? Let’s start with getting a view of your current troop stats.
To view your current troop stats, set your talent tree to War, equip any battle equipment you have, set your airship to hostile and set any guards in place that provide attack or defense stats bonuses. Now start red guard raid and ask a friend to join. After the battle you will receive a Battle Report, this provides you with your current troop stats, line by line. Get used to reading this report because if you want to win battles, sometimes the devil is in the details.
Now, because this is a Guide, not a wiki, I am going to give you some ideas on how to improve your stats.
First, we are going to look for low hanging fruit. Think about the statement for a few moments, the low hanging fruit are places where the fruit is ripe, ready to pick and enjoy. So we are going to want to scour your account, figure out where you are weak and haven’t put in the effort and start putting the components in place to make you stronger.
Here are the places to look to make easy upgrades.
Ok, don’t get mad that I started with the 2 most obvious places to look to improve your stats. I had to get those out of the way!
Now, I’ve saved this one for last, because it is by far the most complex. If you put your time and energy into it, it will pay-off dividends. If you set it up right, it will pay off additional dividends. Unless you are maxed out on this, you might find yourself putting all of your spare time and energy into getting this upgraded. So what is it? Your airship. This may be the most crucial piece you have and if it is not setup right, you are bound to lose battles you could otherwise be winning.
Let’s get started.
Your airship has a large number of abilities, your troop stats are affected by your attack abilities. When setting your abilities, it is recommended to focus only abilities that include Infantry, Cavalry and Distance. Ignoring the Artillery abilities will only make you stronger. When attacking other players, it is recommended not to use artillery unless you are attacking their estate. Artiliery is largely used for mitigating trap damage and carrying large loads. Other than that, it has almost no place in the battle field other.
Recommended Airship Attack Abilities:
Now, I am guessing you might have some troop march speed or abilities that affect your artillery, just remove them now and win more battles. There is a time and place for march speed but it is not a determining factor in the Spirit Mines, Musketeer Fort or in a PVP setting. Troop speed will not help you win a battle, it will only make you march a little faster! In place of those two abilities it is far wiser to have the Guardian abilities which will provide Infantry damage reduction, these are the troops that protect your cavalry and distance troops, so treat the well!
Your airship attack abilities can be further enhanced or empowered with Gears. It is important that if you are in a battle setting that you use your strongest gears on your Attack assault and guardian abilities.
Lastly, since we are on the topic of your Airship and Troop Stats, spend some time on your airship parts. Make sure you are getting the most of them by having your abilities leveled up and that they are upgraded to the highest possible level you can. These can be acquired daily in the Catacombs or purchased inexpensively once a week in the Deals of the Day.
I hope this information has helped you to identify some low hanging fruit and places where you can improve in which you may have otherwise forgotten or neglected. Here’s to your improved Troop stats!
