During the Clash of Streamers late-game, battles in the Campaign Tower become far more difficult and expensive to participate in.
As a result of the difficulty in the higher stages, you are forced to wait until you can improve your team, or try to optimize your lineup through other means.
Oftentimes, this involves spending Gems in the following areas:
- Swapping abilities to try to optimize damage against the boss
- Swapping Loyalty Tree talents to anti-spec the class/faction/skin of the Campaign Tower boss
All of this constant swapping of abilities and talents gets very expensive in the long run. This strategy focuses on improving these Gem costs so that-late game battling can go much more smoothly!
This strategy uses the following TriHard pet passive abilities:
Passive: Being a battle strategist reduces the cost to swap abilities by 1%.
Passive: As a seasoned war veteran all your battles cost 1% less Gems.
Passive: You pledge your loyalty and are rewarded with reduced cost of swapping talents in the Loyalty Tree by 1%.
All three of these passive abilities will improve your ability to progress during late-game combat. Since you will likely constantly need to swap out abilities in the Spellbook and talents in the Loyalty Tree, the Gem cost reduction is a huge deal!
Additionally, it’s even better to do this strategy while you are under the effects of a 10% Gem cost reduction from completing the Gem Event in the prior week.
While not fully necessary, it will help you save a ton of Gems in the long run.
So, this strategy works out to the following steps:
- Complete the Gem Event during one week.
- Equip the above abilities on your active TriHard pet during the week you complete the Gem Event.
- Wait for the weekly reset.
- Progress in the Campaign Tower until you hit a wall.
- Once you hit a wall (usually on a boss), change the Loyalty Tree talents of your streamers to anti-spec the faction, class and skin of the boss.
- If needed, modify the abilities of your high DPS streamers have more single-target abilities.
It should be noted that fighting like this is very expensive. Therefore, it's not recommended for free-to-play players since you won’t have a huge stockpile of Gems to begin with.
Most players should simply progress through the Campaign Tower for free, or while working towards completing the Gem Event or a seasonal event. Take a look at the Campaign Climbing Guide for the best ways to progress through the Campaign Tower.
If you are a pay-to-play player, you might find this strategy very useful to help you progress through extreme late-game combat stages.
Take a look at the Pay-To-Play Guide for more info on the best Gem purchases you can make.
Additionally, there is one more ability that will improve your ability to progress through late-game combat.
Take a look at the following ability:
Passive: Being a collector of skins increases skin buffs by 1%.
The Skin Collector ability simply improves skin buff percentages. This can be great if you have collected a ton of skins and have very high skin buffs to begin with.
Take a look at the Beginner's Combat Guide for a section on skin buffs, and the Achievement Farming Guide for a section on how to collect a ton of skins and increase skin buff percentages.
Overall, by utilizing these abilities during late-game combat, you'll significantly improve your ability to progress further while paying fewer Gems.
