Trap Accounts – Part 2 Hero Skills and Equipment
This is the second part of my trap account mini series, looking at on how to build a trap account in Vikings War of Clans. This part follows on from Part 1 – Buildings, where I looked at the principals of trap accounts and how to layout your town.
In Part 2 I’m going to look at the hero skills and equipment you will need for a successful trap account.
Trap Account Hero Skills
The most important stats for a trap account are troop health and defense. As our final build is going to have a mix of all troop types, we want boosts that will benefit all troop types. Out of the two health is slightly better than defense, but luckily we can max all defense and health skills by the time you get a level 44 hero.
Troop Health and Total Defense
In order to max troop health I & II and total defense I & II you will need the following skills:-
- 1 point in Building I and Learning Speed I
- 3 points in Total Offense, Training Speed I, Melee Offensive I and Cavalry Offensive I
- 5 points in Siege Offensive I
- 20 points Total Defense II
- 20 points Troop Health II
- 3 points in Melee Offense I and Cavalry Offense I.
- 5 points in Siege Offense I, Total Health I, Total Defense I, Melee Offense II, Ranged Offense II, Killer Offense II and Training Speed II.
- 50 points in Troop Health II
- 50 points in Total Defense II
Total skill points spent: 200.
Troop Health I and Total Defense I provides a 15% boost to each stat. Troop Health II and Total Defense II provides a further 85% boost to each stat. This means once both skills are maxed you will have 100% increase to all your troops health and defense.
Level 45 to 50
I would suggest sinking the rest of your points into one troop offensive stat. Go straight for the level II skill and max out as far as you can with your remaining points.
Trap Account Hero Equipment
For hero equipment you want to focus on the same two stats, with troop health given more priority over defense. Below I have selected the top equipment currently in game as of 27 June 2016, with the goal of trying to maximise troop health and total defense.
The majority of the equipment is for a level 50 hero. If your hero is not level 50 yet, you can search for equipment by stat and level in our fully searchable equipment list.
Total Troop Health
The above will give you a 250% boost to Troop Health. If you add 6 legendary rubies you can add a further 60% to these figures, resulting in 310% boost to troop health.
The above will give you a 135% boost to Troop Defense. If you add 6 legendary tourmalines you can add a further 60% to these figures, resulting in 195% boost to troop defense.
I suggest you fill any remaining gem slots with various troop offense gems.
That’s it for the part 2 of my Vikings War of Clans trap account guide. This will give you around 300% boost to health and around 200% boost to defense, just from your hero alone.
