Updated: Jul 14

TABLE OF CONTENTS

 

Are Blazons confusing? Yes, absolutely! So, let's break it down and go step-by-step.


 

THE BASICS


Each Blazon randomly generates at Level 1 with two (2) Attributes.


Each Blazon can have eight (8) different Attributes:

  1. Troop Load

  2. Troop Training Capacity

  3. Troop Bonus Against Monsters

  4. Marching (Attacking) Troop Bonus

  5. In-Rally Troop Bonus

  6. Defending Troop Bonus

  7. Reinforcing Troop Bonus

  8. Troop Bonus (with No Modifier)

 

EQUIPPING


Equipping Blazons

To equip the Blazons, there's an interface screen that can be accessed in any of the four (4) troop buildings (Barracks, Archer Camp, Stables, & Workshop), click on one of the buildings, and then click the "Blazon" button.

 

GROUPS, TYPES & SETS


Groups


There are four (4) groups:

  • Circle icon for Ground Troops

  • Triangle icon for Ranged Troops

  • Diamond icon for Mounted Troops

  • Hexagon icon for Siege Troops


Types of Blazons


There are six (6) Blazon slots for each of the four (4) troop types.


The six (6) Blazon slots correspond to the six (6) types of Blazons:

  • Earth

  • Wind

  • Fire

  • Ocean

  • Light

  • Shadow


Blazon Sets


Each of the six (2) types above, belongs in one (1) of two (2) Sets:


Troop Type Attacking Set Defending Set


Ground Troops: Justice Set or Sacrifice Set

Ranged Troops: Valor Set or Compassion Set

Mounted Troops: Honor Set or Soul Set (PvM - Monsters)

Siege Troops: Honesty Set or Humility Set


So total, there are 48 types of Blazons (4 troop types x 6 Blazon types x 2 Sets). They group into eight (8) Sets with six (6) Blazons each.

SIX (6) STEPS TO GREAT BLAZONS


Six (6) Steps to Great Blazons

 

STEP 1


Assemble the Eight (8) Sets


The eight (8) Set bonuses are huge and pretty easy to get. Just find one (1) of each type of Blazon, the level and quality of the Blazon doesn't matter. Mix the (2) sets if you need to, just get all 24 slots filled as soon as possible.


Equip the Sets in the Blazon Interface Screen:



For Multiple Sets, you'll need to set-up the presets in the upper left corner. Very similar to the way Monarch Gear Presets work.


Preset recommendations for each Troop Type:

  1. Attacking Set

  2. Defending Set

  3. Reinforcing Set

 

STEP 2


Find a Good Blazon of Each Type


It looks like about one (1) in 50-100 will be good. The rest will be garbage and used for leveling up the good Blazons.


Just like Refining Gear or Refining Dragons, some Attributes are good, some are mediocre, and some are bad.



A good Blazon has two (2) of the best attributes (that are listed in the previous section), like:

  • Marching Ranged Attack Increase

  • Marching Ranged Attack Increase

OR

  • Defending Ground HP Increase

  • Defending Ground HP Increase

OR

  • Mounted Defense on Monsters Increase

  • Marching Mounted Defense Increase

OR

  • Defending Siege Attack Increase

  • Defending Siege Attack Increase


NOTE: When you find a good Blazon, hit the "lock" Button in the upper right corner to make sure you don't accidentally use it to level up another Blazon.


A mediocre Blazon typically has two (2) different compatible Attributes, like:

  • Marching Ranged Attack Increase

  • Ranged Attack Increase

OR

  • In-Rally Ground HP Increase

  • Marching Ground HP Increase

OR

  • Mounted Defense Increase on Monsters

  • In-Rally Mounted Defense Increase

OR

  • Defending Siege Attack Increase

  • Siege Attack Increase



A bad Blazon has at least one (1) Non-Helpful Attributes or two (2) opposite Attributes, like:


  • Ranged Attack Increase

  • Ranged Troop Training Capacity Increase

OR

  • Defending Ground Defense Increase

  • Marching Ground Defense Increase

OR

  • Mounted Troop Load Increase

  • Mounted HP Increase

OR

  • In-Rally Siege Machine Attack Increase

  • Reinforcing Siege Machine Attack Increase

 

STEP 3


Level Up the Good Blazons


Collect all the mediocre and bad Blazons, and use them to level up the good Blazons.


Click on the good Blazon you'd like to upgrade (level up).



Then in the lower right corner of the screen, click the green "Upgrade" button.


Any Blazon, no matter the level, can be used to level-up any other Blazon, so if you find a better Level 1 Blazon to replace, let's say, a Level 10 Blazon, the Level 10 can be used to upgrade the Level 1 Blazon to Level 9 (return on Investment will be 80.0%-86.7% of the resources required to make the higher Blazon).

STEP 4


Get a Compatible 3rd Attribute at Level 10


Each Blazon can have eight (8) different Attributes, assuming the chances are all the same, it would be 12.5% chance for each Attribute or 1:8. Each Blazon Type should have at least two (2) compatible Attributes, so 25% or 1:4 chance to get something compatible.


If an incompatible attribute is generated at Level 10, you can either keep it, or go back to step #2 and use it to level up a good Blazon for another try.


Upgrading a Level 1 Blazon with a Level 10 Blazon yields a Level 9 Blazon, then adding twenty-four (24) more Blazons gets the new Blazon to Level 10.


Four (4) tries at a level 10 Blazon would take approximately:


119 + 3 x 24 = 191 Blazons


If a compatible Attribute is generated, go to Step #5.

 

STEP 5


Get a Compatible 4th Attribute at Level 15


Again, each Blazon can have eight (8) different Attributes, assuming the chances are all the same, it would be 12.5% chance for each Attribute or 1:8. Each Blazon Type should have at least two (2) compatible Attributes, so 25% or 1:4 chance to get something compatible.


If a compatible attribute is generated at Level 15, congratulations you now have one (1) really awesome Blazon.


Upgrading a Level 1 Blazon with a Level 15 Blazon on yields a Level 13 Blazon, then adding sixty-nine (69) more Blazons gets the new Blazon to Level 15.


Getting a compatible Attribute twice at 1:4 (25%) is 1:16 (6.25%). Sixteen (16) tries at a level 15 Blazon would take approximately:


349 + 15 x 69 = 1,384 Blazons


If an incompatible Attribute appears you can either keep it, or go back to step #2 and use it to level up a good Blazon for another try.

 

STEP 6


Continue Upgrading to Level 20


If a second compatible attribute is generated at Level 15, congratulations you now have one (1) really awesome Blazon that's ready to go to Level 20. Another 450 Level 1 Blazons are needed to get a Level 15 Blazon to Level 20.

 

THE PERFECT BLAZON


The Perfect Blazon


Again, each Blazon can have eight (8) different Attributes, assuming the chances are all the same, it would be 12.5% chance for each Attribute or 1:8. Each Blazon Type has one (1) perfect Attribute (usually Marching, Defending, Reinforcing, or for Mounted, Against Monsters).


Getting the perfect Attribute twice at 1:8 (12.5%) is 1:64 (1.56%). Sixty-four (64) tries at a level 15 Blazon would take approximately:


349 + 63 x 69 = 4,696 Blazons
