Rams vs. Blasters, 2 vs. 3 Kraken

Postby NTGKOA » Fri Apr 28, 2017 3:37 pm

So I'm level 20 getting up there where I have to start really looking at efficiency so I was wondering what's the current thoughts on Battering Rams vs Blasters, and when to use them and level them. On a side note I've seen many people use 2 Krakens and some use 3 at the start, as I only see two tendrils I assume three is overkill, does it really improve strength?
Thanks yo

I'm assuming you mean against Code Gates.

The effectiveness of Blaster diminishes as level of Code Gates and Blaster both increases.

The effectiveness of Battering Ram improves as level of Code Gates and Battering Ram both increases.

At the high reputations, more people use Battering Ram than Blasters.

2 Krakens are twice as strong as 1 Kraken, while 3 Kraken is only 1.5 times as strong as 2 Krakens.

Magic number for blaster vs code gate is 4.
Double blaster can fight gate 4 levels higher.
Single blaster can fight gate 4 levels lower.

This rule starts to breakdown at gate18/19.
