Kiloo’s latest mobile game for Android and iOS platforms is called Spellbinders, which puts you in control of the battlefield, and in control of the Titans. In the game you’ll start by choosing a Titan, then commanding “an army of fearless minions” and “(dusting) off your favorite spell book.” Mechanics and genre-wise, Kiloo describes Spellbinders as a “MOBA made for mobile,” meaning this is one of those games that really have to be enjoyed in the context of facing other human players from all over the world. You can then aim for the highest possible ranking in the weekly leagues, in hopes of winning the grand trophy, and as far as Titans go, Kiloo has also promised a growing roster of Titans for this title.
Once again, we can’t stress it enough that this game is a MOBA, or multiplayer online battle arena. Your goal here is, and should be to outplay and out-battle your human opponents, and to climb up the league rankings. And in order to help you with that, we’ve listed down several general tips and tricks in this Spellbinders strategy guide.
1. Familiarize Yourself With The Units
All of the units in Spellbinders have their own unique characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. They also have varying attack types and health points, with all of these helping in defining a specific unit’s role. Be strategic and follow classic RPG strategy when it comes to arranging your units in the right way. One easy example would be placing archers in the back, because they so obviously rely on a ranged weapon, and their HP isn’t anything close to average. Now you can place melee units in front of your archers, which does help you on offense, but you may also protect archers or other less sturdier units with tanks, or those average-offense (or even low-offense, seldom high) units with a lot of health points on them.
2. Control The Cannons And You Control The Battle
There really is no specific best way to win battles against your human foes, and there may be many approaches that may work for different types of players. But generally speaking, it’s usually a good idea to try to control the cannons. This is a worthwhile strategy to try out as cannons keep firing away at an opponent’s base, provided you are in control of them. And if you’re able to control all three cannons, they’ll be able to score 10 damage against your opponent in a few seconds if they’re charged up completely. Sometimes a slow burn is the best way to go in games like this, and controlling the cannons definitely makes for a slow, yet effective burn.
3. Then Again, You Can Go At Them Fast And Furious
This may depend on your play style or the type of opponent you’re up against, but going for a fast and aggressive approach does also work for a good percentage of players. Provided you’ve got a capable Titan and a robust army of minions, you can use sheer force to overwhelm, and maybe surprise your opponents in battle. And if they’re able to make all the way to the opponent’s base, that results in direct, and we repeat direct damage against them. Larger and more expensive units, of course, do more damage.
4. Focus Your Attention On One Lane When Using The Above Strategy
Of course, it’s not all about attacking with little forethought or strategy if you go with the above method. There has to be a bit of method to the madness, and you can accomplish this by focusing on just one lane. Just make sure you’ve got enough units to cover the other lanes, but in general, you want to focus on one lane, then move on to the next once you’ve taken care of earlier ones.
5. Take It Easy When Casting Spells
The name of the game is Spellbinders, but that doesn’t give you license to use your spells whenever and wherever. Still, it’s easy to get tempted by the seeming promise of casting spell after spell, cool down be damned. Spells typically have low mana costs, and that could lure you into a sense of false hope that they’re working better than your units. So how should you cast those spells instead? Consider the simple example below.
When you’re in a situation where you don’t have too many units covering you, you can cast a couple of spells to make honest men out of your enemies. But make sure you aren’t casting too many spells on top of each other; don’t rely on your spells alone, send some units out ASAP to make up for your lost ones. Again, this is a game called Spellbinders, but that’s no excuse to spam those spells.
6. Don’t Forget To Charge
Before we forget, we should remind you that you should be constantly replenishing both power and mana by charging them. A charge costs only 10 pieces of gold, so you’ll want to charge your characters before battle, to make sure everything is in order. Additionally, you can score big on a properly-timed power or mana recharge, and possibly swing the balance in your favor.
7. Bring Special Units To Battle
There are three available special units for you to take to battle, and each have different functionalities. And all of them can be yours, at the price of 30 gold per special unit. Colossus, just by the name alone, is a heavy tank-type character that has lots of health points, but painfully low speed. But you can use Colossus for more than just tank duties – if this unit is sent to the enemy base and makes it all the way there, it can let loose with a lot of melee damage. Next up, Mana Sting is a more traditional melee unit in a sense, because it can do a good amount of damage, but it also serves as support, refilling your mana whenever it attacks. Lastly, the Legion is a small army unit that allows you to deploy legion troops on all three lanes.
For now, these would be our tips and tricks for Spellbinders. Be sure to check back from time to time, as we are planning to share some more hints for the game in the near future!
