More benefits, more surprises
Players have to do a lot of daily tasks to ensure the growth of their accounts in GoT WiC. One of the main ones is called “Expedition” which is not just important for you, but it’s important for all your allies. In this guide, I will review some important points about Expeditions.
Attacking Rebel leaders gives you individual prizes. This includes Diamonds, Speedups, and lord equipment utilities. These utilities can be used in Blacksmith to forge lord equipment. By attacking level 1 leaders, you can only drop grey utilities. Attacking higher-level rebel leaders have the chance of dropping higher quality equipment utilities. For example, by attacking a level 3 rebel leader you have the chance to find a grey, green and blue version of utilities.
More important, eliminating rebel leaders (by reducing their health to 0%) will give your alliance an alliance chest. All your allies will receive a prize from it! The quality of this chest depends on the level of the rebel leader who was killed. Opening Alliance chests will give you diamonds, alliance coins, speedups, Resource packs, and other items. It will also increase your alliance level and will give your alliance tokens that your leaders can use during “Alliance Conquest” and other alliance events.
- The best prize return for your alliance per motivation spent, happens when you hit the rebel leaders that you can eliminate with 3 or fewer hits.
- The best way to increase Alliance level and Alliance supplies (the tokens that can be used for events) is to have all members attacking the rebel leaders they can eliminate with 1 hit.
The higher quality alliance chests have the chance to drop better quality drops. Plus, the chance of multiple drops from the same chest is better when you open higher-quality chests.
You can also give your alliance an alliance gift chest if you buy a game pack. Keep in mind that the main economy of your alliance is alliance gifts and a healthy alliance has a good income of alliance gifts per day. A lot of competitive alliances control the amount and quality of the rebel leaders their members kill on a weekly basis.
To kill rebel leaders easier
- Do all expedition and pacification researches. They are even more necessary than T4 troop researches, as they will increase your speedups and diamond income and will help your alliance significantly.
- Make your expedition-related commanders better. This means, level them up to 60, give them all the equipment they need, and make them gold quality. I will mention the importance of the Expedition commanders in the next part of this guide.
- Get “Mountain Clan” Lord equipment gear and one of the expedition damage castle exteriors. From the available exteriors “Donus Fort”, “Watcher’s Oath” and “Last Hearth” add expedition damage. They will increase your damage and other related stats and will help you in eliminating higher-level rebel leaders with less motivation cost. This table (borrowed from “Wun”) shows how each level of the “Mountain clan” set can help you with expeditions:
*Pay attention that, to benefit from Mountain clan equipment your lord must be participating in the expedition, and for the castle exteriors to have an effect, they must be chosen as your active castle exterior. I suggest: changing your lord to Jeane, equipping the mountain clan set, and equipping the castle exterior before doing the expeditions.
- If you’re going to kill higher-level rebel leaders, you can get assistance from the “Expedition Damage” Item in “Sept of the Seven”.
In this part of the guide, I’m going to share my own experience with different commanders and setups which might be useful for you and assist you with better expeditions.
The main structure for when doing an expedition should be like this:
This means that you will need one commander which will stay alive during the whole attack and will tank the rebel leader's damage. If your Tank dies, then your other commanders will die fast and your total damage will reduce significantly. For our tanks to not die, we usually have to help them with 1 support commander that can heal or reduce the damage. Some Tanks can support themselves (Like Jeane and Margaery) which will give us one extra free slot that we can fill with another DPS. This makes them some of the best tanks for expeditions.
Some other commanders like Enzo and Lareo can deal a massive amount of damage and tank the damage at the same time. Enzo will get additional damage for the damage he receives so it’s important to use him on Tank slot in your formation and support him with proper healers and support commanders to make sure he doesn’t die.
Another important thing to have in mind is that the front row commanders can produce might faster. When a commander has its Might refilled, they will perform their active ability against the rebel leader. Here is a list of the best commanders for expeditions in the current meta in order of their effectiveness:
Tank: Enzo (As long as he can survive, S++), Lareo (Vs Spear and Bow, S++), Jeane (Not vs Spear, S++), Salma (vs Inf, S+), Latz Karin (vs Spear, S+), Margaery (Not vs Infantry, S+), Winton (With more DPS and fewer healers, Not vs Spears, S+), Jon Snow (vs Spear and Bowmen, S+), Rhea (Only vs Spear, S+), Tyrion (Only vs Spear, will need support, S), Uma (Only vs Cav, S), Patelo (Only vs Cav, A), Haley (Only vs Spear, A), Kevin (Only vs Infantry, A), Drake (Only vs Cav, A), Hector (Only vs Cav, A), Andrea (Only vs Spear, A), Gorell (Only vs Cavalry, A), Darius (B), Seg (Only vs Spear, B), Robb Stark (Only vs Inf, B), Chris (Only vs Inf, B)
Support: Jeane (For heal and damage boost, should be in all setups, usually as a tank but if vs Spear as backline support, S++), Annie (For damage boost, use if the tank is surviving, S+), Egbert (Might recovery and heal, S+), Margaery (For might recovery, S+), Sabrina (For prowess boost, S), Salma (Reduces skill damage taken, A), Rhea (A), Simon Blackmyre (A), Varys (B), Sansa Stark (B)
DPS (Universal): Theon (S++), Enzo (S++), Daenerys Targaryen (S++), Sheila (S++), Sabrina (S+), Julien (Not vs Infantry, S), Lareo (Especially against Spear and Bow, S), Cersei Lannister (S), Soren (S), O’biehn (A), Melisandre (A)
DPS (vs Infantry): Enzo (S++), Merrel Peake (S+), Leila Mormont (S+), Salma (S), Mengo (S+), Laena Waters (A), Raymond (A), Petyr Baelish (A)
DPS (vs Spear): Arya Stark (S+), Latz Karin (S+), Sinara (S+), Lareo (S), Sandor Clegane (A), Barret (A), Feis (B)
DPS (vs Cavalry): Daenerys Targaryen (S++), Julien (S++), Meranda (S++), Jaime Lannister (S+), Drake (S+), Arslan (S)
Here are some suggestions for FREE to play players, you should adjust these based on the lists above and your commander’s qualities:
Note: When using Tyrion as a tank, you will need Sheila next to him in the front row for her mini stun, and you need Jeane/Egbert in the backline to heal him, otherwise he dies.
Note: You will receive a better result by using Jeane as a tank and increasing your DPS count when you’re fighting lower-level rebel leaders.
Note: Sheila and Arya are very strong DPS when awakened.
For medium spenders, here are some suggestions. Again, these must be adjusted based on your own available commanders:
Note: In all the above formations, if your tank dies, replace Annie with Egbert. If even after that your tank dies, you will need to awaken or upgrade your tank or use another.
*Please pay attention that the setups I introduced above are not necessarily the best setups for you and you have to adjust them by changing some commanders depending on your commander’s quality and their awakening.
Thanks for reading and I hope that you find these details helpful!
