Immortal Conquest is a new iOS and Android game from NetEase Games that adds to the growing number of MMORTS games for mobile. In this game your job is to devise masterful strategies to rule more than two million pieces of land on a map that’s occupied by everyone in the in-game world – that’s a world of real players, whom you will be interacting with and treating as your allies, or your in-game enemies depending on where you stand. The description adds that there isn’t any one specific path to victory, but there’s only one possible winning alliance – you will indeed have to team up with other players to form an alliance and defend your territory, while you build new facilities, upgrade your territory, and expand it to take up more of the board.
Those represent just a few of the key features of this game, which is as deep as you can expect from other titles in the massively multiplayer online real-time strategy genre. That would mean loads of stuff to learn in this game, but you don’t need to rack your brain figuring out the right things to do to enjoy success in here. Read on, as our exclusive Immortal Conquest strategy guide covers all the different topics, and all the various areas that you need to master in order to make your alliance into a winner.
1. Different Heroes, Different Enemy Types
Every MMORTS needs heroes, and in this game, they are known as Gairos. And each Gairo has their own specific skill sets, allowing them to specialize in taking down different types of enemies. If you’ve got all three Gairos hailing from the same realm, you’ll get some much-needed buffs (can’t go without ‘em in games of this type), specifically a 10 percent bonus to different stats – attack, speed, defense, and spirit. And if all three Gairos are of the same type, you’ll get different buffs that can also help you out on the battlefield.
Generally speaking, the best thing to do when choosing Gairos to take on enemies is to consider their skills and use that to inform your decision on whom to field against different enemy types.
2. Enhance Your Gairos’ Skills
Your Gairos also have specific stats – we shall refer to them as skills going forward – that determine their strengths and weaknesses and what they can do and can’t do on the battlefield. When it comes to managing skills, you should group them accordingly based on the different outcomes in battle, and make sure to upgrade them with gems and coins. Once those skills are upgraded, you’ll have a better chance of getting a leg up against those real player-controlled enemies.
3. Research New Skills And Discard Old Ones
The game allows you to create new skills through research, though you can also “dismantle” older ones that you no longer find useful. Skills you acquire through the research process cannot be directly learned; if you want to further improve on and learn that skill, you’ll need to keep on researching. When choosing skills to research on, it’s best to consider buffs – buffs to damage, health restoration, and your skills – as the main variable influencing your decision.
4. You Need Strategy When Forming Alliances
Strategy is at the heart of Immortal Conquest, and you’ll also need to employ it when you’re choosing alliances to join or form. Some alliances may be stronger or weaker than others, and you’ll need to keep that in mind, among other considerations, when shopping around for alliance partners. That won’t be the case early on, as all alliances will be on a fairly level playing field, but going forward, you should try teaming up with players from neighboring parts of the map. That should allow you to utilize their territories and have easier access to resources.
As you go further into the game, you and your alliance mates should focus on attacking weaker cities as you try to get your empire off the ground. It’s only once you’re fairly late into the game that you can start talking strategic alliance with more distant cities that you may find useful to your cause.
5. Spend Your Coins Wisely
You can unlock new Gairos and draw them accordingly, but if you want to improve your chances of getting Gairos who could be of better use to your cause, you should be upgrading the Celtic, Egyptian, Nordic, and Titan temples whenever you’re upgrading with your coins. But that’s not the only way for you to properly spend your coins – there’s also forming alliances, which, as we mentioned above, is a key mechanic in this game, and an integral part of Immortal Conquest’s social element.
Alliances will cost you 5,000 coins to create, but that’s money well-spent, as you can get some useful troops and other resources. Likewise, your coins will also be well-spent if you use them to purchase additional building slots early on in the game. The sooner you upgrade your facilities, the faster you’ll be able to occupy more territory as you progress forward.
6. Take Advantage Of Your Two-Day Window
Like most other MMORTS games do, Immortal Conquest gives you a two-day window if you’re a brand-new player. You also get that two-day window after a total conquest has been reached. This window can be referred to as a “truce” period where nobody would be able to attack your city. Make full use of the 48 hours of peace you’ll be getting, strengthening your city and occupying more land on the board. It’s best to be as prepared as possible while still early, and to make sure no one catches you unaware once the truce is over.
7. Tips For Conquering Cities The Right Way
There are different tactical strategies you can use when conquering other cities in the game. We would suggest, in general, using Gairos in siege teams. Siege teams are very similar in nature to combat teams, but ultimately differ as you can utilize rare infantry Gairo with siege teams, specifically equipping them with the Siege Machine skill and teaming them up with infantry that utilize Praise. That makes these teams a far better choice, and if you want advice on the rare Gairo you should be going for, we’d recommend Ajax, Calatin, and other similar heroes whose Siege stats are well above average.
8. Beat An Enemy, And You Get Ruins
If you defeat another player in a PvP battle, you will be rewarded with ruins. Occupying the ruins of the enemy sub-city will automatically give you every level for every building, with the exception of the Government Hall, and that means you won’t have to upgrade them from scratch, saving you a lot of time and currency. So if you’ve got an enemy player’s ruins as your reward, there’s a solid chance you’ll also have some advanced buildings right there from the get-go.
