Best Gift?

  • Best Gift?

    I've checked the detailed listing of my battle page after an invasion, and it appears that by far the best 'gift item' for me is the morningstar (the mace that can be assembled from the mystery artifact 'hour glass' set of gifts).

    When I'm forced to defend, it ranks relatively high on my weapons list, while no other gift-generated object appears anywhere else. The morningstar's 3/7 stat make it especially useful in defense.

    My army is 200+ and I'm level 180+. Most of the army members I routinely send gift to are around that same level.

    Am I wrong to assume that-- for most folks at a similar level to me-- that the mystery artifact (hour glass) gifts will help them the most in the long run?

    The answer as always depends on your situation. In my current situation I only care for Vanquish Wrath as I don't have the ability to buy Royal Seals yet. Morningstar is appearing on my weapon rooster but it is third from the end of the list. There are many people that have no use for any of their gifts so go figure

      Best gift depends on what you're doing in the game.

      If you want to defend against invasions, the Morningstar pieces (Mystery Artifact) are indeed the best gifts. If you need more armor/items, the Serpentine Shield (Mystery Relic), the Frost Tear Dagger (Mystery Frost Item), and Poseidon's Horn (Mystery Treasure) are decent.

      If you are generally an offensive invader, the Morningstar is still good, but the Whisper Bow (Mystery Druid Item) is slightly better. Vanquish gifts can be combined to produce a spell that is slightly better than Champion's Aura.

        I'm in a pretty good situation money-wise, and the champions' aura I already purchased 'crowd out' the Vanquish Wrath. However, I can't possibly buy enough obsidian swords to push the morningstars off the bottom of my list any time soon.

        As a general statement, it seems to me the most difficult 'supplements' to acquire for one's army are first generals and second magic. So I'm not too surprised that you are finding a magic-category item useful.

          Or maybe NOT doing?

          I very much enjoy looking at my battle news or arena report to find someone bounced off me and left me a 'gift' while I was away!

              Offensively. Defensively, Champion's Aura is better.

                        My opinion is that its good to get a spread- the Vanquish gives you magic, (which is usually the hardest thing to get- even when you can buy it from rank rewards, its get expensive pretty quickly), but the morning star is a decent defensive weapon- likewise, the druid/bow is a decent offensive one, (these are both when equipping large armies, not for dueling of course- save in the beginning )


                        So, I would say decide what you are looking for most, and send them out to the largest spread of the army, (just run through the top thirty of your CA list, and annotate who was the last one so you know where to start the next day), and send out what you want- ask if they can send it back, (don't get huffy if they don't) Rotate by day, when you get your fill, whatever floats your boat.

                            Takes mighty long to farm all 501 of each best gift items.

                            Assuming 30 gift sent daily, that is 600 ingredients in one month (assuming you want to take Vanquish Wrath, but since one of them is slightly rarer than other two), that is 100 Vanquish Wrath made at best. So in 5 months you can fill out the Magic section with Vanquish Wrath.

                            But in that 5 months, which is 150 days and assuming you have 200,000,000 gold made hourly without Mercede, guess how many Champion Aura you can buy in 150 days?


                            In long run, you might dominate with Gift weapons, but in short run, a lot of players can overrun you with their 501 Champion Aura and Gladiator Sword in both Arena and Battle.

                              I think you are forgetting that along the way you will get some items and magic that are better than gift items or purchasable items.
