    Another great thread from daph! Hopefully you still with be in forums a lot
  7. Re: FCers Guide to the KaWlaxy

    Awesome job Daph  this should help a lot of ppl.

    When I started new accounts, I would always do 12CoE n 12Guilds. Then start opening lands aggressively. As you open lands, I used to throw down guilds (lvl 4), as you noted dues to GH changes for wars, lvl 1 SoS may work better now. This helps to get decent plunder very quick and you don't have to plan your final build yet since these are cheap to tear down in the end.

    Another helpful hint is that Haunt (therefore HTE too) requires 50m raw atk stats to hit relatively successfully. So set this as an early goal to achieve via bldgs n equip (even lower lvl equip if needed). If you are close, but not quite 50m then doesn't be afraid to use the 1mith atk spell called battle fury. This will give you a temporary attack boost when you are too small to when on bigger ebs. Note that mith cost change with you size (the bigger you get, the more expensive it becomes). So definitely buy 6 (maximum purchasable amount with gold) as soon as you ug to lvl 3 castle and also only use when you are small on ebs that are worth the mith investment (ie mith cost 450m per mith; eb should make triple by the end to recoup what you spend on mith to hit).

    Hopefully that helps some as well 
  8. Re: FCers Guide to the KaWlaxy

    Last time I tested it Haunts took 30mil raw attack stats to hit successfully and I learned this when equip first came out. I could be wrong but I don't see why they'd change it 
  9. Re: FCers Guide to the KaWlaxy

    This is a really good thread, OP.
    I'd say welcome to KaW but you appear like you've already learned the basics.
  10. Re: FCers Guide to the KaWlaxy

    Also, I found when I started that the minimum spy bldgs needed before equipment to successfully hit all ebs was either 4 lvl 4 guild or 2 lvl 3 SoS. However this is a minimum. As Daph stated spies are much more important here. They don't increase your FH plunder as much as atk bldg but the compensate greatly on the back end payout of ebs. So much so that my hansel accounts grow much more quickly than my attack accounts.

    Nice thread and helpful guide to transitioning players from FC my friend.
  14. Re: FCers Guide to the KaWlaxy

    Also I'd suggesting searching for the "kawculator" it will help you figure your build in the long run.
