Castle Age: Pierce Build holding pattern posted: Sat 2019-04-20 14:59:25 tags: gaming
Back in 2015 I crunched numbers to pinpoint an "ultimate" Castle Age pierce alliance. The solution I came up with was Annika primary (but if I was starting from scratch now I think I'd invest in Guinevere instead), Gale (or Aravoss) secondary, and Kitsune (or perhaps Kanbe) tertiary.

The conclusion was Annika (or Guinevere) primary, Gale secondary and aim for Kitsune tertiary if I ever get her. I kinda wish I had thought about this before I sank 60-75 each o... (...more)
The introduction of Cronus Astaroth on 2014-10-20 heralded a new generation of monster hunting targets. This 5th gen was characterized by the "stance" mechanic. Each 5th+ gen monster has a stance rating. Cronus Astaroth's stance rating, for example, is 30. To qualify for legendary loot, damage on these monsters must be done with a general whose stance level at least equals the monster's. At simplest, the general's level is their stance level too.
