  • Crest Hunting Tips

    For all of you hunting for crests , I've been bribed by Kabam to post some crest hunting tips for you all... so here goes

    Aside from the things they've already told us (only attack level 6-10 pict camps, don't attack the same camp more than once an hour, build and upgrade your round tower as high as you can), and the obvious things you should already know (use the highest level knights you have)... there are additional strategies you can use to effectively attack pict camps to earn your crests.

    Each time you attack a pict camp, you'll find that you lose troops. This is what's going to limit how quickly you can earn your crests more than anything. If you run out of troops, you can't attack any more, and you can't earn crests. Thus, your strategy should be to build troops as quickly as you can, while also minimizing your losses while attacking.

    There should be plenty of guides on how to build a large effective army already, so I'll skip that part. What I'll concentrate on is how to minimize your losses when attacking picts.

    If you scout the different levels of pict camps, you'll notice a few things. One is that for each particular level, their army is always composed of the same mix of troops. Some will have all ground, some will have all horse, some will have all artillery, and some will have all 3. If you're smart about what types of troops you use in your attack, you can exploit the weaknesses of the different pict camps to help reduce your troop losses.

    Level 10 and level 6 picts only have cavalry troops. By attacking these camps with ONLY ground troops (mm, swordsmen, battering rams), you'll reduce your losses. Similarly, level 9 picts use only artillery, so attacking with only cavalry troops will reduce your losses. And finally for level 7 picts which only use ground troops, you should attack with only artillery troops (archers, ballistae, catapults) to reduce your losses. Level 8 picts use a mix of all 3 troop types, and as a result don't have a specific weakness, so you should avoid attacking these altogether.

    By following this strategy, your troops will last longer and let you earn more crests.

    Looking at the drop rates I'm seeing, assuming you attack a mix of all pict camp levels, it'll take 800+ attacks before you get 100 crests. Depending on the level of your knights, your research level, and the make up of your army, this will likely cost you from 6-10 million in might... so expect a long grind. Hopefully these tips will help you get there a bit faster. Good luck earning those crests!

          If you attack the camps for the crests... I'll tell you, I've been attacking. And I've gotten nothing.

          Personally? The hassle of attacking pict camps is boring, and tedious. If I'm going to loose troops and might over gaining just resources with not a crest in sight..., I'm going to attack other members. At least there, I know I won't have the hopes up of perhaps getting a crest.

                        Check your Round Tower... then click on the Artifacts tab to see your crests/plans.

                          Crest nonsense

                          Flippin rediculous!!! Attack Pict camps....no crests. Get attacked by players...lose any crests you've got. Gaining resources from the camps is useful but costly. If the point of the game is to beat down the Picts, there needs to be a better payoff....crests, gems, troops, artifacts....something. Maybe the opportunity to actually conquer and occupy. I understand KOC needs to earn $ but throw us a friggin bone!

                              you can see how many crests you have by looking in your round house.
                              the REALLY frustrating thing is that players that are attacking / farming you have a chance to STEAL crests from you.
                              being effectively victimised by a large alliance has seen me lose a crests every 2-4 attacks - which adds up to a LOT and makes a mockery of trying to weather the storm and make yourself less appealing a target!!!
                              what is even more concerning is that you can buy crests and then lose them...
