Red Equipment Combination List (Which Should You Make?)

Ares and Achaemenidae are the final equipment, but there are so many different types that some people may not know which one to choose.

So, I’ ve put together a list of what I think are the basic combinations for each general type.

If you have any doubts, you may want to use these as a base for customization. (What you should equip depends on what skills you want to add to your general, what role you want to play, etc.)

Basic idea

It is very difficult to make choices about equipment combinations without a specific policy.

In this article, the following is assumed.

  • In battle, let the subordinate cities enter the fight, and assume the following as their basic roles.
    • Attack General – Buff
    • Defense General – Buff
    • Subordinate City Mayor – Debuff
  • In cases where subordinate cities cannot be brought into the battle (such as attacks on temples or battlefield buildings), the emphasis should be on Buffs rather than Debuffs.
  • Of the basic stats (Attack, HP, Defense), I would put the most emphasis on Attack.

Details of each equipment’s performance

Please refer to the following article for a list.

Combination of Red Equipment by type

A) Attack: Ranged + Siege

  • Ares Bow
  • Fearless Ares Helmet
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Armor
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Leg Armor
  • Fearless Achaemenidae Boots
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Ring

Supplemental

Armor – “Courageous Achaemenidae Armor” has no ranged troops buff, but it has excellent siege buff and debuff. “Courageous Ares Armor” has a ranged troops buff, but it only has ranged troops HP, so I think Achaemenidae is the better choice for this formation.

Leg Armor – “Courageous Achaemenidae Leg Armor” increases ranged attack and siege HP. “Courageous Ares Armor” increases ranged defense and siege attack, which isn’t bad, but since I mainly use ranged troops rather than siege, I went with Achaemenidae.

Boots – “Fearless Ares Boots” and “Fearless Achaemenidae Boots” both increase ranged HP and march speed, but Achaemenidae has a siege debuff.

Rings – ” Courageous Achaemenidae Ring” does not have the ranged troops buff, but it does increase siege machine range. If the enemy is equipped with this ring, the possibility of being attacked unilaterally will increase even though you have a troop formation that includes siege. Therefore, it is better to have it in this troop formation.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

  • March Speed +54%
  • Ranged Attack +74% (when attacking)
  • Ranged HP +17%
  • Ranged Defense +10% (when defending)
  • Siege Attack +54%
  • Siege HP +17%
  • Siege Defense +17%
  • Siege Range +5%
  • Enemy Siege Attack -40%
  • Enemy Ranged Attack -20%
  • Enemy Mounted Attack -20%
  • Enemy Mounted Defense -20%
  • Mounted HP +41% (when attacking)
  • Mounted Defense +20%
  • Ground Defense +10% (when attacking)
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +25% (when attacking)
  • Ground and Mounted Attack and Defense +25% when attacking monsters

B) Attack: Ranged Specialization

  • Ares Bow
  • Fearless Ares Helmet
  • Courageous Ares Armor (or Courageous Achaemenidae Armor)
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Leg Armor
  • Fearless Achaemenidae Boots
  • Fearless Achaemenidae Ring

Supplemental

The only difference between the “Ranged + Siege” case is the Armor and the Ring.

Armor – The only armor that has a ranged buff is “Courageous Ares Armor”, but it only increases the ranged HP, and “Courageous Achaemenidae Armor” doesn’t have a ranged buff, but the siege and mounted debuffs are strong, so it’s not bad. You may want to go with this one.

Ring – There is no need to equip the “Courageous Achaemenidae Ring” to extend the siege range since the troop formation is not focused on siege.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

*Armor – Courageous Ares Armor

  • March speed +54%
  • Ranged Attack +94%
  • Ranged HP +34%
  • Ranged Defense +20%
  • Enemy Siege Attack -20%
  • Enemy Ground HP -20%
  • Enemy Mounted Attack -20%
  • Enemy Mounted HP -20%
  • Siege Attack +34%
  • Siege HP +17%
  • Ground Defense +10% (when attacking)
  • Mounted Attack +17%
  • Mounted HP +41% (when attacking)
  • Mounted Defense +17%
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +25% (when attacking)

C) Attack: Mounted Specialization

  • Ares Spear
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Helmet
  • Courageous Ares Armor
  • Fearless Ares Leg Armor
  • Fearless Ares Boots
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Ring

Supplemental

Helmet – “Fearless Ares Helmet” is the best choice if you want to increase HP, but I chose the “Courageous Achaemenidae Helmet” because I wanted to improve the strengths of the mounted, and it increases their attack.

Ring – “Courageous Ares Ring” has almost the same performance, but this one reduces the defense of enemy ranged. The “Courageous Achaemenidae Ring” reduces the attack of the enemy ranged. If anything, this one is probably better.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

  • March Speed +24%
  • March Speed to Monsters +45%
  • Mounted Attack +88% (when attacking)
  • Mounted HP +17% (when attacking)
  • Mounted Defense +71% (when attacking)
  • Enemy Ranged Attack -20%.
  • Enemy Ground Defense -20%.
  • Enemy Ground HP -20%.
  • Siege Attack +20%
  • Siege Range +5%
  • Ranged Attack +10% (when defending)
  • Ranged HP +34%
  • Ground HP +17%
  • Ground Defense +7% (when attacking)
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +25% (when attacking)
  • Ground and Mounted Attack and Defense +25% when attacking monsters

D) Attack: Ground Specialization

  • Achaemenidae Sword or Ares Sword
  • Courageous Ares Helmet
  • Fearless Ares Armor
  • Fearless Ares Leg Armor
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Boots
  • Fearless Ares Ring

Supplemental

Sword – “Achaemenidae Sword” and the “Ares Sword” have almost the same performance. The difference is that the former “reduces enemy mounted attack” and the latter “reduces enemy mounted HP”.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

*Weapon – Achaemenidae Sword

  • March Size Capacity +6%
  • Ground Attack +47%
  • Ground HP +51%
  • Ground Defense +61% (when attacking)
  • Enemy Mounted Attack -58%
  • Enemy Ranged Attack -20%
  • Enemy Siege Attack -40%
  • Siege Defense +17%
  • Mounted Attack +17%
  • Mounted Defense +7% (when attacking)
  • Ranged Attack +20%
  • Troop Load +17%
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +25% (when attacking)
  • Ground and Mounted Attack and Defense +25% when attacking monsters

E) Defense General (Wall)

If You Focus On Siege & Ranged Troops

  • Achaemenidae Bow or Achaemenidae Axe
  • Fearless Ares Helmet
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Armor
  • Courageous Ares Leg Armor or Courageous Achaemenidae Leg Armor
  • Courageous Ares Boots
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Ring

Supplemental

Helmet – “Fearless Ares Helmet” appears to be unsuitable for defense at first glance, as it has one buff that is exclusive to attacking. However, the fact that it has increased attack for siege and ranged troops is an unmatched advantage. Therefore, it may be used in this troop formation.

Leg Armor – “Courageous Ares Leg Armor” if you want to focus on the attack of siege, and “Courageous Achaemenidae Leg Armor” if you want to focus on the attack of ranged troops.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

*Weapon – Achaemenidae Bow
*Leg Armor – Courageous Ares Leg Armor

  • Siege Attack +81%
  • Siege HP +17%
  • Siege Defense +17%
  • Siege Range +5%
  • Ranged Attack +47%
  • Ranged Defense +42% (when defending)
  • Mounted HP +34%
  • Mounted Defense +20%
  • Ground Defense +17%
  • Enemy Siege Attack -40%
  • Enemy Mounted Defense -20%
  • Enemy Ranged Attack -20%
  • Troop Load +24%
  • March Speed +30%
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +10%

F) Mayor of a Subordinate City

If You Focus On Ranged Troops Debuff

  • Achaemenidae Axe
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Helmet or Fearless Achaemenidae Helmet
  • Fearless Ares Armor
  • Fearless Achaemenidae Leg Armor
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Boots
  • Courageous Achaemenidae Ring

Supplemental

Helmets – There are no helmets with a ranged troops debuff, so choose one according to your preference. If you want to debuff ground troops, go for the “Courageous Achaemenidae Helmet”. If you want to debuff mounted troops, go for the “Fearless Achaemenidae Helmet”.

Buffs/Debuffs you can get

*In the case of mayors, buffs do not apply to troops in the main city.

*Helmet – Courageous Achaemenidae Helmet

  • Enemy Ranged HP -20%
  • Enemy Ranged Attack -40%
  • Enemy Ranged Defense -20%
  • Enemy Siege Attack -60%
  • Enemy Mounted Attack -20%
  • Enemy Ground HP -40%
  • Enemy Ground Defense -20%
  • Mounted Attack +17%
  • Mounted Defense +20%
  • Siege Attack +67%
  • Siege Range +5%
  • Ground Defense +34%
  • Ground HP +34%
*Equipment Set Buffs
  • All troop types Attack +10%
  • Ground and Mounted Attack and Defense +25% when attacking monsters

(If the armor is Achaemenidae, six pieces of equipment will be Achaemenidae, and the equipment set debuff “Enemy Troop Attack -15%” will become effective, but the “Enemy Ranged Troops Attack -20%” of “Fearless Ares Armor” will be lost. Since this example focuses on the ranged troops debuff, Ares is employed.)

I’m just wondering if the Achaemenidae set has the same buffs as the dragon set. I’ve noticed it’s the opposite with the kings set.

Thanks for all the advice.

I’m a newbie who just started a while ago. I’ve always relied on you for your very clear writings on how to collect hammers and such.
I was wondering if you could make an article that explains equipment for beginners.
I’d like to know if it’s better not to refine at the beginning of the game, which equipment is better to refine, and what is refining? I have a lot of questions that I’d like to know, and I’m having trouble finding answers.
I know it’s a lot to ask, but I’d appreciate it if you’d consider it!
