We have just extended the Troop Training Calculator with the data for Tier 8 troops. In case anyone can supply the training times and resource requiremenst for tier 9 and 10 troops, please add in the comments, and we will add those as well.
As the last point in a list of updates for version 3.0.0 it says Battle balancing tweaked for a fairer fight. I suggest the KoA staff look up what tweak means, because there seems to be a major change that affects all combat aspects (Monster, Barbarian, PvP). You might re-evaluate everything you have learned so far. For monsters it will mean for many players that were previously able to kill level 30, they now are stuck at lower level twenties again.
We added a follow up on our popular Growth Strategy Guide. Where the basic guide focused on growing from SH 14 to 20, this guide offers additional tips to help you get from SH 20 to SH 24.
We have added the four new dragon skills that were just released: Blood Thirst, Rain of Fire, Sacred Shield and Double Bounty. Note that the Dragon level requirements for these new skills is very high (level 59-61), upgrading them required Dragon Spirit Scrolls rather than assault or guardian points, and enhancing them requires Dragon Pendants instead of Intensity Crystals.
