The old Commanders building has gotten a remodel in the Dark World, along with it’s associated Expansion building, the Command Depot. The Command Center is now home to a new type of combat items called “Troop Supplies”. In today’s Guide we will discuss;
- What are Troop Supplies?
- What type of Troop Supplies are there?
- How do Troop Supplies Work?
- What benefit does the updated Command Depot give?
To start off, let’s take a look at exactly what Troop Supplies are.
What are Troop Supplies?
Troop Supplies are not technically Troops, but they’re basically Troops. You send them with your march when attacking other players. Although the description can be confusing, they also work Defensively. They can be found in the Command Center building. To see how many of each Troop Supply you have, open the Supply you want to see.
What Type of Troop Supplies are There?
There are Troop Supplies for Mounts, Astrals, Core Troops, Elementals and Mercenaries. There are currently two types of each of the above categories; Attack and Defense. The Attack Troop Supplies increase Attack, and the Defense Troop Supplies increase Attack Resistance against the enemy’s troops of the same type. For example; Mount Defense Treat increases Attack Resistance against Enemy Mounts in combat.
These Troop Supplies are leveraged as well;
- Strong against Core Troops
- Weak against Astrals
- Strong against Mounts
- Weak against Elementals
- Strong against Elementals
- Weak against Core Troops
- Strong against Astrals
- Weak against Elementals
- Core Troops
- Strong against Mercenary
- Weak against Mounts
Troop Supply Research
Of course, no new release is complete without a new tree! The Troop Supply research tree requires Troop Supply Upgrade scrolls and T3 RSS. You must unlock each of the Troop Supplies to make them useful. There is also research to increase their Potency and some march size increases.
Using Troop Supplies
You send Troop Supplies with your march. It has its own separate tab to select the Troop Supplies you wish to use. When Defending, they work automatically. There’s no need to do anything other than have them in your base.
The Command Depot
The Command Depot is an Expansion Building that uses Dark Chaotic Empire Expansion Blueprints to level up post level 20. Starting at Level 21 the Command Depot gives intrinsic benefits of Potency for each type of Troop Supply, along with Troop Capacity, Rally Capacity, and March Size increases.
Collecting from the Command Depot gives Command Center Chests, which gives Troop Supplies. The Troop Supplies you can collect are based upon the Troop Supply Unlock Skills that you’ve researched in the tree. You will get Defense Supplies regardless as they do not need to be researched.
The new Command Center is a welcome update to the old Commanders (which many of us never used even before the Dark World). Make sure to level up your Depot to take advantage of the buffs given by the building, as well as the Chests that contain more Troop Supplies.
