The Barbarian, new VIP and events: all the new features in the latest Gladiator Heroes update

Another big update brings a whole host of exciting new features. In this blog, we take you through everything you need to know about the latest version.

The Barbarian smashes her way into the game

She’s big, she’s barbaric, and she’s finally in the game! We’ve been teasing you about the release of the Barbarian, a fierce female two-hands gladiator, for months now, and with this last update lanista can now hire her as part of their invincible team.

Patient lanista have settled with Leonidas and Asterion, the Minotaur, in the meantime, but we all know that the ‘Hulka’ is who you’ve really been waiting for!

This strong lady comes with four unique skills that no other gladiator class possesses: Whirlwind, Hook, Hook & Hit and Heroic Throw.

She’s able to draw in opponents from long-range with a hook and chain and crush them with a mighty axe or hammer blow, making her a formidable opponent against the cunning Assassin and Hunter. Using her incredible strength and agility, she’s also able to spin several times in the air with her weapon outstretched, taking out several opponents in the process.

The Barbarian can also charge and throw her opponents over her head, body slamming them to the ground and rendering them useless.

Bigger benefits in the VIP subscription

There are now even more benefits included in the monthly VIP subscription. The tactical new ‘reveal skill’ option is available to use for free for VIP users, while regular users will need to pay 200 gems a pop. Being able to see your gladiator’s future skills selection will help you to make a more informed choice when picking skills, and forming the perfect set.

You’ll also now be able to open a free purple-coloured chest every day from in front of the Merchant, and get an extra key when unlocking chests post-battle. All that is on top of the already-existing VIP features: 50% healing time reduction, and two builders.

New summer event and wild weekends!

Lanistae, we know how much you all love fighting for blood and glory in the regular weekend events, so we’re adding even more features to make them even more worthwhile.

If you love slashing, clashing and claiming victories all weekend long, then you’ll love some of the exciting additions we’re about to make to the weekend events.

We know how much you love the prize wheel that features in some of special annual events, such as Halloween and Valentine’s Day. Well, we’re bringing it back on a more regular basis: the prize wheel will be included in events on a more regular basis.

Although the prize wheel tickets will change in style and appearance in different events, you can still save them up and use them in any event. This means that you’ll no longer lose your hard earned tokens at the end of each event, and can save them up for even better prizes.

You’ll not only win tickets from event battles, but you’ll also be able to uncover them after regular mission fights, extra challenges and multiplayer over the course of the weekend.

What’s more, we’re bringing back another special themed event for summer! Grab your beach umbrella and slap on your suncream, there are a whole lot of special legendary items to uncover in the scorching sand arena!

Welcome back the themed prize wheel and special merchant, as the game gets a beach makeover during the month of August.

Even more levels to take on

You may have noticed that we’ve been taking advantage of the past few updates to sneak in new levels. Well, this one’s the same, with ten new levels now available to play on the map.

The big boss in level 133, next to the shark-infested waters, is none other than the Barbarian herself. With the hook & hit and heroic throw skills, as well as a tough health recovery skill, she’s an extremely tough opponent to overcome.

Let’s Explain the New Gladiator Heroes Multiplayer System

PvP takes on a whole new meaning with these changes to Gladiator Heroes’ multiplayer system.

Lanisate, do you have what it takes to face a new challenge every week? It’s time to step into the new multiplayer arena and prove your worth as an invincible fighter – every single week.

That’s right; our total overhaul of the multiplayer system means that every week the tables are reset, and you have to fight to stay at the top of the rankings before the next season ticks over.

Each week, you’ll be randomly grouped with 20 other lanistae of a similar fame level. It’s important to note that no two rankings are the same; every lanista will see his or her own table. While in your table you might be at the top, if you appear in your friends table you could be languishing near the bottom, due to different opponents in their PvP group.

This means that you have to focus on topping your group and your group alone; put aside all distractions and keep your eye on the prize – gems and Merchant tokens!

Depending on your position at the end of the week, you’ll earn a certain amount of gems and gold, silver or bronze tokens. These will allow you to purchase Merchant chests and upgrade your weapons and armour for the following week’s challenge.

To top the table you need to earn points, and not fame like before. These points can be earned but not lost – even after a period of inactivity or a defeat. In fact, you even win a small amount of points after a defeat; regular fighting is rewarded here.

If you’re a big time lanista who wants to show off on the global stage; fear not. The worldwide, local and Facebook friends rankings are still visible for your bragging rights.

There have been no changes to the clan war system, but this multiplayer facelift means that group battles are as important as ever to earn those highly sought-after Merchant tokens.

Lanistae, it’s time to dust off your armour and sharpen your swords – a new, legendary multiplayer is here and it’s giving you to be a champion every day of the week.

Clan Perks and the Hand of Zeus: More new features in Gladiator Heroes

Just a few short weeks on from the mighty addition of Leonidas and the Temple of Myths, we’re bringing yet another update with some long-awaited features. Find out what’s new to Gladiator Heroes, and what’s to come…

 

Make the most of clan perks

Lanistae; we’ve teased you with the addition of Clan Perks ever since the Wars began back in January, and now they’ve finally been added to the game!

By building on your clan’s overall experience, you can unlock great benefits for all your teammates; from increased orb donation allowances, to reduced training times…

Every time you play in a clan battle, you gain up to 10 points in clan experience, which goes towards your clan’s overall tally. So, with a maximum of 50 players in a clan, the highest your team can score from one battle is 500.

As you increase your experience level, you’ll unlock new clan perks, which will be available to every member of the clan.

Prepare for new mission levels

In addition to the long-awaited clan perks, our developers have added 11 new levels to the game; including a never-before-seen arena.

The Hand of Zeus, an ancient, stone battleground perched precariously above the turbulent sea, is the only arena where gladiators can be pushed off the sides.

To combat this, try using gladiators with the stone feet skills, or two-hand gladiators, who can’t be pushed.

On the other hand, incorporate gladiators with pushing skills, such as jump shockwave, shockwave, dashing push or charge, to throw your opponents off the side of the arena and to their grizzly death in one, quick blow.

Extra improvements

On top of these new features, our developers have been working hard to solve a few more issues in game, such as loading times, cross-device synchronisation, and some combat crashes.

They’ve also fixed the additional attacks skill, and made Leonidas available to fight in clan battles.

A gladiator’s work is never done…

As we head into the summer months in the northern hemisphere, and our gladiators (and developers), are getting ready to take a well-deserved break, we’re aiming to bring you at least one more update before beach mode sets in.
The main focus for following updates will be the Temple of Myths; new heroes, and improving the stats of current heroes.

Many lanista have expressed concern over the power of Leonidas. While his overall power may be less than some five-star gladiators, his unique skill set means that he often lasts longer in battle, and can overcome some opponents that regular gladiators can’t.

Taking the fast, cunning attacks of the spear gladiator, and the fierce protection of the sword and shield, Leonidas is a formidable opponent.

That said, we’ve taken your feedback into account, and are working on ways to make the mythic heroes as powerful and sought-after as they should be!

The stuff of legends: new ‘mythic hero’ class

After months of whispers on the gladiator grapevine, the mightiest and most fabled of fighters are finally coming to Gladiator Heroes. Make way for the mythic hero gladiators.

Temple of Myths

The excitement will all begin once your Headquarters reach level seven and the Gods deem you worthy to experience the myths and legends that the Temple conceal.

At this point you will unlock the ability to construct an intriguing new building known as the Temple of Myths, which will act as the hub for mythic heroes where you can hire and level up your new fighters.

Hiring fame and victory

Within the mystifying Temple of Myths you can hire your legendary gladiators by using mythic tokens that are specific to each gladiator found in the Temple.

These special tokens can be won through weekly events or found in chests available after successful combat.

Each mythic hero has their own mythic token and requires 25 tokens to be hired from the Temple.

Only the most victorious of lanistae are worthy of experiencing the stuff of legends so it will take some hard work and determination to find enough tokens to release the epic unknown.
However, if you simply cannot wait to get your hands on a mighty Leonidas then have no fear. You can also pay for mystic tokens in the Temple of Myths by using gems.

‘300’ legends in the Temple

Hiding inside this new building is your first glimpse of a renowned fighter that all gladiators aspire to be.

With the distance attacking methods of a Hunter and the innate defence skills of the Guardian, Leonidas will take you closer to glory than you’ve ever been before.

Once hired, this mighty fighter will immediately come with a set of 5 incredible skills which will be constant between each Leonidas.

It’s the mightiest set of skills for the mightiest of gladiators so get grinding to get your hands on the legend that is Leonidas to see just how incredible his selection of skills will be.

Mythic heroes will also always have the same appearance, and will always be the rarest of fighters with 5 stars so get ready for the fight of a lifetime!

Gladiators from the Temple of Myths will also not equip any weapons or armour and always maintain full training so you don’t need to worry about ensuring they practise their combat every 24 hours.

As normal, Leonidas’ rank when hired will depend on the average rank of your other gladiators. To ensure you hire Leonidas at a specific rank you need all your other gladiators to have that same rank.

Levelling these legendary fighters will take three steps which cost an incremental price of gold per step. After all, glory comes at a cost.

As mythic heroes immediately come with all five skills, when you level up your Leonidas you won’t gain any new skills. However, once you reach certain levels and ranks your skills will level up making them more powerful or giving them more turns to be used.

Legendary restrictions

The Gods will be watching with pride when they see your mythic heroes fighting for their empire in the arenas but obviously the limelight must always be on these epic fighters.

As a result, you are only able to use one legendary fighter as one of your three gladiators in combat.

You can still use regular gladiators to support your main man in the arena but can’t use more than one legendary fighter in the same battle; that just wouldn’t be fair on the enemy!

As well as this, the empire deems it unfair to use mythic heroes in restricted combat.

If the battle only allows one gladiator, only spearmen or any other type of constraint in the arena, you won’t be able to place your legendary fighter on the battlefield.

So it’s time to start grinding the fields of combat for those special mystic tokens and make a mighty stash of gems and gold to prepare for the most legendary gladiator that Gladiator Heroes has ever seen.

Hunting for iron before unlocking the Mine

It’s one of the biggest obstacles to growing your city, but the struggle is defeatable. Find out some hints and tips for how to gain iron before unlocking the Iron Mine.

 

Me, myself and I-ron

Once your Headquarters reach level nine you will unlock the Iron Warehouse which can be used to store the iron resource. Iron is used to for constructing new buildings and for upgrading many of the existing buildings in your city once they reach a higher level.

Upgrading your Iron Warehouse will increase the amount of iron that you can store at any one time and will be vital once the buildings in your city require more iron to be improved.

Despite many buildings requiring iron to be upgraded at this point in the game, such as the Caravan, Headquarters, and even to construct the Iron Mine itself once you reach HQ level 10, there are still many options for you to collect iron without having built the Mine. It’s time to upgrade your strategy.

May the iron odds be ever in your favour

The best place to start on your mission to find iron is the world map.

This is the perfect excuse to give the Gods the show they’ve been waiting for. Get your gladiators in gear by filling their training, forging their mighty weapons, and levelling them to become the mightiest gladiators around.

All of this grinding will pay off once you manage to reach the dusty but deadly White Desert. Starting at mission 62, you will earn iron as part of your rewards for gaining success and glory by completing a mission.

The glory and iron rewards that come from successful missions are not the only ways to be victorious at this level.

After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to nine chests and will receive the mysterious but valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with iron to help you develop your city.

You can also hunt for iron from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of iron!

A city of iron

Developing and growing your city is vital to the best tactics of locating stone and progressing in the game.

By upgrading and constructing more buildings in your city, you will gain experience points after each construction is complete.

This will contribute to your city’s experience and once you have received enough experience points your city will level up.

Once your city levels up you will be rewarded for your hard work and incredible city growth with a selection of fantastic rewards, and once you reach level 20 you will start to receive iron for levelling up.

Diamonds are forever

If the painfully long challenge of grinding the game to find iron seems like too much of a tactical effort for your impatient gladiadors, have no fear!

You don’t have to wait to gain iron through chests and rewards to upgrade your buildings if you want to progress faster and with less grinding.

Using gems to pay for the resources you don’t have is a great way to accelerate your city development progress until you eventually unlock the Iron Mine at Headquarters level 10.

You can receive gems for free from chest prizes, free chests around the world map, as well as through combat victory and city levelling.

So it’s time to brush up on your combat strategy, plan your city development tactics, and get ready for the gladiator treasure challenge of finding that mighty iron resource.

The winning weapons of Gladiator Heroes

Deadly daggers, swooping swords, soaring spears and hefty helmets. Once your Armoury is built after  HQ level two your gladiators are ready to make the most of the world of weapons that Gladiator Heroes has to offer.

Weapons of war

The equipment that you find throughout Gladiator Heroes is so much more than just a piece of armour or a weapon.

Not only do gleaming pieces of equipment make your gladiators look even mightier than normal, but they also impact the statistics of your warriors.

Equipping weapons and armour will improve the armour, defence, attack and damage statistics of your gladiators which can greatly aid them in battle.

As mentioned in a previous blog post about defeating The Wall, some bosses and powerful opponents can absorb low damage hits or inflict high damage from their attacks. This makes them less likely to be injured and more likely the destroy your gladiators.

By equipping your team with the strongest armour and most impressive weapons you will drastically improve your combat tactics. This makes victory much more likely and the Gods even more impressed by your battle performance.

When looking at the weapons you own in the Armoury, you will sometimes see a star symbol on the weapon. This means that the item improves more that one statistic once equipped.

For instance, a shield showing the star symbol could improve your gladiator’s armour and defence statistics instead of just the armour statistics. This means additional assistances in combat and could mean a closer shot at glory.

The colours of power

In Gladiator Heroes you will notice that each item is shown on a coloured card. The colour of an item depicts its rarity and quality:

– Blue: Common
– Green: Uncommon
– Purple: Rare
– Red: Epic
– Yellow: Legendary

This means that the rarer the weapon, the higher its statatics are when compared to a different rarity weapon of the same rank and level.

This means it is extremely unlikely to come across legendary weapons but that they are extremely worthwhile because they will be among the most powerful weapons in the game, therefore contributing greatly to your gladiator’s success in combat.

Finding the tools of the trade

Weapons and armour are among the most sought after items in the game and are an exciting thing to come across, however there are multiple ways to find them in the luck of the draw.

After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to 9 chests and will receive the unknown and valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with weapons of varying rarities to help develop your combat power.

You can also hunt for weapons from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of equipment!

Helmets are among some of the rarest items in the game however they will only start to drop through chests once the average rank of your gladiators is four or above.

Once this occurs, your chances of finding the mightiest of headgear for your gladiators will greatly increase.

Premium gladiators and legendary weapons

As also mentioned in a previous blog post, Premium gladiators can be one of the best ways to get a fully-equipped legendary gladiator in a matter of seconds.

Purchasing Premium gladiator statues from the Gladiator Residence by using gems not only allows you to hire a guaranteed 5 star rarity gladiator, but also gives you a legendary weapon for each weapon slot unlocked at the rank of gladiator hired.

Whilst this means the price of the statue will increase as the rank hired goes up, this means you get more legendary weapons once hired.

For instance, gladiators hired at rank one will only receive one legendary weapon as this is the only weapon slot unlocked at that point in the gladiator’s evolution. Meanwhile, gladiators hired at rank five will receive five legendary weapons when hired through a Premium statue.

The rank of a newly hired gladiator will be the average rank of your current gladiators. However, in order to ensure your fresh fighter is a specific rank when hired, ALL your current gladiators need to already be on that rank.

How to get stone without the Quarry

It’s one of the most important resources for developing your city but can be one of the biggest challenges in Gladiator Heroes. How do you gain stone before unlocking the Quarry?

 

Grow your city

Once your Headquarters reach level 6 you will unlock the Stone Warehouse which can be used to store stone. The higher the level of the Stone Warehouse, the more stone you can store at any one time.

Stone is used to for constructing new buildings and for upgrading many of the existing buildings in your city once they reach a higher level.

Despite many buildings requiring stone to be upgraded at this point in the game, such as the Caravan, Headquarters, and even the Quarry itself, there are many ways to collect stone without having built the Quarry.

 

A treasure hunt for stone

The world map is the perfect place to start your hunt for stone.

Train and prepare your gladiators for combat because starting at mission 44 you will earn stone as a prize for successfully completing a mission.

Winning combat can not only provide you with stone rewards through mission prizes, but also gives you the opportunity to find the valuable resource in free chests.

After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select chests and will receive the exciting prizes that are hidden inside. If luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with stone to help you develop your city.

You can also hunt for stone from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of stone!

Levels of stone

Developing and growing your city is key to finding stone and progressing in the game.

By upgrading and constructing more buildings in your city, you will gain experience points which will contribute to your city level.

When your city levels up you will win a selection of fantastic rewards, and once you reach level 12 you will start to receive stone for levelling up.

Diamonds are a gladiator’s best friend

Without using strategy and patience, gaining stone to upgrade your city before unlocking the Quarry can be a painful challenge.

You don’t have to wait to gain stone to upgrade your buildings if you want to progress faster.

Using gems to pay for the resources you don’t have is a great way to accelerate your city development progress until you eventually unlock the Quarry at Headquarters level 7.

It will cost you around 10 gems to pay for 3000 stone that is needed for some buildings and you can receive gems for free from chest prizes, free chests around the world map, and combat and city rewards.

So it’s time to brush up on your strategy, plan your city development tactics, and get ready for the gladiator treasure challenge of finding that mighty stone resource.

Strategic Victory in Event Rounds

As the weekly events lurk round the corner it’s time to brush up on your battle tactics to increase your chances of the ultimate victory and the most glorious of prizes. We explore the strategic ways to improve your battle success.

 

Rounds of death and glory

During weekly events you will likely come across a different type of combat madness. Combat rounds include multiple battles which you must complete in order to advance to the next stage in the event.

Should you gain victory after a round, you will be shown a new set of opponents. You will have then have the opportunity to move and change your gladiators should you choose to do so, which could be very strategic.

As well as this, between rounds you will get to choose a special power up out of a selection of 3. You will always be able to select one powerup at no cost, however can pay with gems to additionally activate the other powerups during the next round.

These powerups can include health boosts to heal your injured gladiators in the arena, increased tactical points, or boosts to movement, attack or defense.

Redeployed success

As with normal combat, status effects can be inflicted on your gladiators during battle. If you are successful and defeat the opponent, but your gladiators still experience a conditioning effect, that condition will remain for the next round.

It must be noted however, that you can remove your gladiators from the arena before the next round begins which will also remove their status effects.

This can be extremely strategic as it means you won’t start the next battle with stunned gladiators!

You can still decide to redeploy the same gladiator back into the arena, and you simply position them in your desired location in the arena as normal.

But be careful! If your gladiators have still have active skills at the end of a successful round, removing them from the arena will also remove their active skills. This means that even if you redeploy them in the arena, their active skill will not be operating at the start of the next combat.

How to boss the rounds of combat

Practise makes perfect when trying to create a strategy for combat rounds. This means that having a knowledge of how the rounds work, and in particular the final round, is vital to your event success.

It’s very common for the final rounds of events to include a singular mighty boss who can send your gladiators straight to the Infirmary with one quick swing of their sword.

This means it may be strategic to save your best gladiators, particularly those with the highest health, till the final rounds.

Using this tactic will mean your strongest gladiators will have the best change and defeating the most challenging part of the rounds.

As outlined in a previous blog posts about single bosses such as the Undertaker and the Wall, strategy is crucial to beat them. Only the strongest and most strategic will survive these legendary beasts and last to see the ultimate victory and glory.

So it’s time to brush up on your battle tactics, train your gladiators, and get ready to head for the event arenas and test out your epic new strategy for the combat rounds!

Learn how to position your gladiators for victory

Positioning your gladiators is vital strategy for combat success.  We explore the ins and outs of why positioning can make or break your victory.

One class against them all

Some mission battles or event battles can sometimes have an enemy that consists of solely one class. In these cases, the positioning of your gladiators could be vital to beat the enemy, however positioning will strongly depend on the class you’re up against.

When up against dual-wield enemies such as the Black Mamba, make sure your gladiators start positioned as far away as possible. This will make it less likely for the enemy to reach you and inflict an attack in one move.

Enemies made up of just spearmen are a significant challenge as they can easily attack from afar and retreat from danger. Position your team as far away from these as possible with your spearmen at the back with their backs to the wall and your two-hands gladiators at the front. This will make up for their slow start but allow for quick distance attacks from your spearmen.

The obstacles to glory

Battle arenas that are full of obstacles can be particularly challenging to strategise.

Position your spearmen behind traps or walls so that they can attack the enemy from a distance but make it more challenging for the enemy to reach them.

Two-hand and dual-wield gladiators with jump skills should also be positioned behind traps and obstacles, particularly walls, as they are safe from attacks however can jump over the barricades to reach the enemy.

Make sure your dual-wielders never start positioned in front of traps as they can easily be pushed onto these and receive significant damage.

Sword and shield gladiators may struggle to get past obstacles due to a lack of jump skills and distance attacks. Position these gladiators in front of obstacles or near an obvious exit point so that they can retreat from danger yet also make a strategic attack on the opposition.

Putting the “Kill” in skill

Exploiting the skills of your gladiators in combat can be crucial for your battle plan, however when combining this with the initial gladiator positioning, can create an epic strategy.

Spearmen with conditioning throw skills such as stun and bleed should start positioned at the corners of the arena, with their backs close to the wall. This means enemies can be attacked from all corners without your gladiators having to use their turn for movement points, or risking damage on the first move.

Sword and shield gladiators with block active skills can be positioned closer to the enemy, in a more central position in the arena. This means they can attack in their first moves however block the enemy’s hits without enduring damage.

Gladiators with healing strike skills could be tactically positioned further away from the enemy as to reduce the risk of damaging your healer. This means they can act as a supporter from a distance to reinforce the attackers on the frontline.

A tactical defense team

Leaving your gladiators to fend for themselves in the Games of Glory means you must think about your strategic positioning in the arena.

In empty arenas without obstacles, you should position your dual gladiators with their backs to the wall which will reduce the chance of damage on their sensitive backs in the first moves.

You can also position a two-hands gladiator behind your dual-wields which will not only protect the duals from being pushed into the walls, but will also make up for the two-hand gladiator’s low movement points.

Spearmen are best situated at the far ends or corners of the arena, or behind obstacles should there be any. Their distance attacks mean damage can be inflicted without them having to move.

Positioning your gladiators could make or break your glory in combat and could help you to become the most epic lanista in the kingdom! It’s time to prepare your fighters, forge your weapons, and create the most epic positioning strategy in the lands.

How to strategically defeat The Wall

He’s big, he’s tough, and he’s one of the most intimidating challenges of Gladiator Heroes. Skulking in the darkness of level 45 he’s ready with his henchmen to send you straight to the Infirmary in one hefty hit.

The mighty Wall is a huge two-hand gladiator boss with some of the strongest armour seen in Gladiator Heroes.

Train and level your gladiators, forge your armour and weapons, and with a thorough strategy, you will be able to finally defeat the beast and wish level 45 goodbye.

Your gladiator gateway to victory

It goes without saying that your choice in gladiators can make or break your success against big bosses such as The Wall.

Such a strong boss with such durable armour requires a large amount of damage affect his health and this significantly influences your choice in fighters.

Dual-wield gladiators are not recommended against The Wall as such a strong opponent will defeat the dual-wields in one forceful hit.

These fighting assassins also do not inflict high levels of damage per attack, and therefore will be more likely to have their hits absorbed by The Wall’s solid armour.

Spearmen can be useful in that they can attack from a distance and retreat from danger. With The Wall being a two-hands gladiator, this means the spearman are less likely to get reached by the opponent due to his slow movement points.

Despite this, The Wall is immune to condition attacks unless fired by a very high level gladiator, thus rendering most of the spearman’s active attacks useless.

Sword and shield gladiators with their innate blocking are useful against this strong boss as they have improved defense against his powerful strikes.

Two-hand gladiators are the most useful against The Wall as they use the strength of his own class against him. Despite their low movement, their sturdiness means they won’t be pushed by the enemy, and are more likely to inflict higher damage that will affect the health of the opponent.

A skillful triumph

Using your gladiator’s skills to their advantage can be a tactical advantage to combat against The Wall.

Two-hands gladiators with the armour break conditioning skill can be extremely useful against big bosses with impressive armour that easily absorbs attacks and damage. Using the armour break condition will break The Wall’s armour, making him more susceptible to damage for a certain number of turns, making it easier to injure him.

However, it must be noted that conditioning skills will only work against powerful opponents such as The Wall if they are of high rank and level.

Two-hands Dunce gladiators with the strong attacks active skill will be particularly useful against this opponent as their hits will have increased damage and therefore will improve your chances of defeating The mighty Wall.

A useful strategy to use against The Wall is to use sword and shield gladiators with provoke and block skills. They will be able to distract the enemy whilst also blocking his attacks, whilst the ally gladiators attack the opponent from behind.

The weapons of success

Using weapons in combat can drastically improve your chances of victory.

Using armour and weapons increases your statistics depending on the item equipped, the level and forge status of the items.

Items can have an impact on either your gladiator’s attack, defense, armour, and damage statistics which could be the decider between victory and death in battle.

Against opponents with such strong armour, such as The Wall, weapons with high damage statistics can be extremely useful in combat.

Take advantage of the Forge and improve the damage statistics of your weapons or spend time in combat to increase your chances of winning a strong weapon through a chest.

As we mentioned in a previous blog post, premium gladiator statues come with legendary weapons.

These premium statues could be extremely beneficial against enemies such as The Wall and could be worth saving the gems and the money for forging if it means you will finally defeat the might beast and wish the evil level 45 goodbye.
