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.

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.

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!

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.

Prepare to become the ultimate Clan Battle champion

The Clan Battles have officially begun so it’s time to raise your flags high and proud. Prepare your clans with the ultimate fighting strategy and you could be victorious in the battle for triumph and glory.

24 hours later

The epic Clan Battles begin through the Games of Glory page where your clan leaders and generals can start the search for an opposing clan of similar power.

Once an enemy clan has been selected for the battle, you will have 24 hours to get ready for battle.

Using this 24 hours period wisely to prepare your fellow clan members, discuss tactics, and create a strategy, could make or break your victory.

This preparation period is vital for deliberating the ultimate strategy with your clan members to decide which colosseums to attack. Will you all follow the same path and focus on long-duration capture of colosseums with the highest points, or will you all attack all the colosseums to capture as many as possible for a short period of time?

Sharing is caring

As we outlined in a previous blog post, the Clan Building brings some very special time-limited bonuses created from orbs that the clan donate.

The Clan Battle is a perfect opportunity to strategize the use of these bonuses and may persuade you to act for the greater good of the clan and donate some of your orbs.

Discussing this strategy in the clan chat is vital as no one will benefit from orb bonuses if no one donates or if everyone requests.

Having a select few members requesting orbs (particularly the green and orange orbs for defensive and offensive combat bonuses) will be more beneficial to the clan overall than if everyone receives 2 orbs for instance.

If some users use these bonuses during the Clan Battle, their chance of success in the arena increases which will increase the amount of points won and therefore improve your chances of clan victory and incredible prizes!

Command a fantastic victory

An important tactic for battle strategy is consistent communication with your clan. Not only is the clan chat easily accessible on the left of your clan battle screen, but also your clan leaders and generals will have the opportunity to signal colosseums to the clan.

Powerful clan members will be able to choose a colosseum and “command” the clan to attack it.

Using a command on a colosseum will place a flag on it which will act as a signal to the other clan members about where the leaders think would be most tactical to attack.

Up to 5 commands can be made at any one time, and each one will last a limited duration, so think carefully about how to share your strategy.

Power is a dangerous thing

During the Clan Battle the power of clan generals is fully exploited. Clan leaders can promote clan members to become generals, and demote generals to a regular clan member status.

Whilst there is no limit to the amount of generals you clan can have, it should be incorporated into your battle plan.

Too many clan generals and the battle strategy may become confusing or conflicted, with commands not tactically making sense across the arena which could cost you the victory.

Clan leaders have the ultimate power to demote generals from their authority through the Clan Building by tapping on the member’s name.

Will your clan be full of equality and allow for a balanced power and discussion of strategy, or will you prefer a hierarchy of power within your clan?

The ultimate Clan Battle strategy

Whilst there is no perfect strategy for the Clan Battles, and each clan will have a different battle plan, there are certain key factors to consider.

Some colosseums require more points to capture. It can be strategic for all clan members to attack the same place in order to secure a capture, particularly when the colosseum has a higher number of points generated whilst captured.

Make sure you keep an eye on the colosseum point scales as you need to ensure your colosseums remain captured, therefore protecting your pathways across the map.

The colosseums furthest away from your starting side of the arena generate the most points once captured, however they are are more challenging in combat and also require more points to capture. Reaching these and securing them could be the key to victory!

The centre colosseum is also a gold mine for capture, with only one access point, making it more challenging for the enemy to threaten once captured by you.

This colosseum provides some of the highest numbers of points across the arena, and is less challenging to reach due to its central position.

Capturing the access point and the centre colosseum would generate a large amount of points over time, increasing your chances at victory.

The gateway to success

There are also 4 main gateway colosseums in the arena: two on each side, and two on each end of the map.

These provide a single access point on each side of the arena to the other end of the map which means capturing these colosseums provide protection to your end of the map (which would be the most valuable colosseums for your enemy) as they cannot pass a colosseum territorialized by your clan.

The same goes for the opposite side of the map. If you capture both sides of these gateway colosseums, you have access to the enemy’s most valuable colosseums that generate the most points, and also close off the rest of the map for the opposition.

Points mean prizes in the battle of clans

With Clan Battles fully underway, find out exactly how to win the most points and defeat your clan enemies once and for all.

The winning scale

Each colosseum on the Clan Battle map can be captured by you or your opposing clan.

You can only reach colosseums that are further away, once you have captured those closest to your side of the map, with combat increasing in difficulty and granting more points and prizes the further you stray from your side.

In order to occupy a colosseum, you will need to reach a certain amount of points on the scale you will see at the top of the colosseum’s information.

The closer you are to your side of the map, the lower the points required to capture the colosseum will be.

This means that it will be much harder for the enemy clan to territorialize a colosseum that is on your side of the map as they will need a much larger quantity of points.

Health means victory

The amount of points you receive after successful combat depend on the overall health of all your gladiators after the battle.

You will receive 3, 2, or 1, points that contribute towards capturing the colosseum.

This means that defense is equally as important as attack in these battles.

Incorporate defensive gladiators with protective skills into your combat strategy in order to take advantage of the maximum points available from successful fights.

Sword and Shield gladiators with active block and armour increase skills can help defend enemy attacks and reduce damage, whilst gladiators with the healing shout active skills can help heal injured gladiators and improve your chances of achieving the maximum points.

Exploiting passive skills is also crucial in these strategic battles as using gladiators with scavenger, anger, and regeneration can save your gladiators once they have been damaged.

A game of capture the colosseum

Once a colosseum has been captured by a clan, the clan will earn points for every 5 minutes that the arena is in their possession.

These points will differ depending on the colosseum’s distance away from your clan’s side of the map.

The amount of points you receive from the captured colosseum will contribute to your general Clan Battle score and will eventually decide the clan who has won the ultimate victory for glory.

This makes strategy, health, and the subsequent amount of points you have on the colosseum’s scale imperative for Clan Battle success.

 

Get ready to heal your gladiators, prepare your strategy, and fight to the death in the Clan Battle arena. Who will win the ultimate victory for glory and who will face the ultimate despair in gruelling combat? Let the Clan Battles commence!

The battle of the clans has officially begun

Prepare your clans, develop your fame, and fight for honour – Clan Battles are finally here.

Search for your battle

Start your clan’s fight for victory through the Games of Glory page where your clan’s leaders and generals can start the search for an opposition.

Opposing clans will be selected based on a similar power level to create similar power battles.

It’s all about preparation

Once an enemy clan has been selected for battle, you will have 24 hours to prepare your clan for war.

You will be able to see the war map and its arenas before the battle begins, and the clan chat window will be available from this screen.

Use the clan chat to discuss strategy and let everyone know about the battle. Align your team members with your war plan and get ready for combat madness!

Will you decide to all attack the same bases to keep territories for longer, or will you go for gold and try to get to the most powerful coliseums before the battle is over?

The fight for honour

You will have 24 hours to conquer the arena and gain victory over the opposing clan.

Your clan will start by fighting in the coliseums nearest to your “side” of the war map and the opposing clan will do the same on their “side”.

Once your clan is victorious in a coliseum they will capture it and earn points for every five minutes that the arena is captured.

After defeating the first arenas, you will be able to proceed to invading the adjoining coliseums and advancing towards the enemy clan’s side.

As you move closer to the enemy’s section of the arena ground, the battles will increase in difficulty. The harder the combat, the more prizes are to be won and the more points your clan will win for holding those arenas in your power.

Clan generals and leaders can order their clan members to attack a specific arena which can be implemented into their battle strategy.

Any fame earned during these battles will be clan fame not personal fame.

All that glitters is gold

After all successful combats, you will receive battle prize chests and win the rewards that are revealed within them.

Also, for every successful battle, you will obtain potential prizes that depend on the difficulty of the battle. These prizes are wood, silver, and gold tokens that you can use to purchase chests in the Merchant.

Individual members will earn these prizes depending on how many battles they have accomplished during the war.

If your clan is victorious in the war, you will receive 100% of these prizes and can bask in all your glory.

If your clan loses then all is not lost. You will still receive a proportion of these prizes to compensate your efforts during the gruelling and grizzly war.

 

So prepare your clans, wave your flags high, and get ready to battle to the death for glory

How to defeat the formidable Black Mamba

She’s fast, feisty, and one of the biggest challenges in Gladiator Heroes. Creeping in the dust of level 69 she’ll be ready with her guards to defeat your gladiators in one simple flash.

 

She’s a mighty dual-wield gladiator with the speed and strike capable of destroying your team before they know what’s hit them.

With the right strategy and a carefully selected team, however, her and her dual defenders can be defeated. In this guide, we outline how you can use the Black Mamba’s tactics against them and wish the terrifying level 69 goodbye.

Choose your dream team

Dual-wield gladiators are the best class to send into combat with such a feisty opponent as they can use the Black Mamba’s speedy strikes against them.

It helps if they also possess the skill “dodge” as it makes it less likely that the Black Mamba’s quick attacks will make contact.

Using “additional attack” skills will also be beneficial as it will inflict more damage and reduce the opportunity for defense of the enemy.

Using one sword and shield gladiator with the skills “provoke” and “block” can also be extremely strategic.

This gladiator will draw the Black Mamba and her guards towards him which will give your allies the perfect opportunity to strike the enemy from behind when they least expect it.

Passive skills can also make or break your battle success with the Black Mamba. Due to the sneaky attacks of the dual-wields, skills such as “back protection” and “conditions resistance” can be crucial to reduce the fatality of the bleed condition and speed of the enemy’s attack.

It’s not recommended to use the tactical spearmen when against the Black Mamba because she herself is immune to most conditions.

It is also not recommended to use two-hands gladiators as despite being hulking beasts, their slow movement will be no match for the ninja-like Black Mamba and her allies.

 

Position yourself wisely

The starting position of your gladiators can be imperative for your combat success.

Ensure your gladiator’s positions are always far away from the dual-wield enemy with their backs against the wall to protect them from the quick back attacks quickly given by the opponent.

If your gladiators are positioned far away from the enemy, it will take them longer to reach you and therefore will need more than one move to attack you due to using their points for movement.

If at first you don’t succeed…

The best way to defeat the Black Mamba is to simply try and try again. She is one of the toughest opponents to beat in the game however with significant practise, she can be beaten.

So it’s time to train and level your gladiators in order to make them as strong as possible to destroy the mighty and feisty Black Mamba. Good luck Lanistae!
