[Play style] No fourth Training camp level 20 or Training camps 3x level 20 and 1x level 11 due to recruits from Atlantis Rising.


Some heroes are good, some suck, most are okay.

But you cannot level 4* / 5* heroes you do not have.

In my opinion, you only want 3x Training camps level 20 and 1x Training camps level 11 due to recruits from Atlantis Rising ( AR )

4x Legendary training

4x Legendary training ( RT20) leaves you no camp for Extra low cost training ( RT11) during AR.

Legendary training and AR

Gryphonkit, my wife, always loses recruits during AR because she has nowhere to put them and no food.

4x Food Storage Level 20 plus Stronghold equals 2,766 k food.

900 recruits require 2,673 k food in Legendary training ( RT20).

After 900 recruits you have to wait for more food before stashing recruits in Legendary training ( RT20).

900 recruits is 120 world energy in AR.6-9N . Or 20 hours of world energy not including world energy flasks.

9x Farms Level 20 plus Watchtower level 20
produced approximately 62 k food per hour or approximately 1,488 k food per day.

This is another 500 recruits per 24 hours.

500 recruits is 67 world energy in AR.6-9N . Or 11.19 hours of world energy not including world energy flasks.

So many players can run out of food to put recruits in Legendary training ( RT20) during AR.

1x Extra low cost training

By leaving my fourth camp at level 11, I would always have Extra low cost training ( RT11), to stash AR recruits.

After AR, I can get food to transfer the recruits to Legendary training ( RT20 ).

3x Legendary training ( RT20) consumes 150 recruits, and 445.5 k food per day.

Flasks during AR

World energy flasks make the above food to recruit ratio even worse during AR, making Extra low cost training ( RT11 ) even more useful.

Fourth Training camp level 20

Raising my fourth training camp to level 20 is my only regret about my base building.

Are you sure it is not half of it?


If you use AR exclusively to level heroes or
If you farm vigorously during AR

You are right

But I don’t farm that vigorously tbh and I can get by with 4 TC20s.


Early in this game, I would often argue against four tc20, but the c2p/f2p players showed their need for this base no matter that it could create problems with leveling. This was, of course, before season two.

Now, players are using AR to stock up on practice swords, back packs and rugged clothes only to wind up with too many recruits along with more lower level ascension materials than they need.

I am guessing here, but it strikes me there is a point where things start to back up. How many maxed 3* heroes do you need once you have all the S1 heroes in duplicate. And, eventually, all the S1 4s. All the while tc20s are churning out heroes, players are accumulating recruits in the hope of training a 5. And then another. And another.

How often do you have multiple 5* heroes which are not dupes and with the necessary 3* and 4* mats? Not that often is another guess.

I did drop the lede here. My message is players need to be aware that farming Atlantis rising should be targeting crafting materials.

Strengthening your roster to the point you hit titans hard enough to reach titan loot tier IX goes hand in hand with producing 4* battle items. And this is your prime source of ascension materials. They are needed for events too which produce emblems as well as AMs.

Sorry, this got so long, but I’m old and tired.


Not to go too far off topic, but what items are you talking about in regards to titans? I can’t imagine needing anything beyond arrows and antidotes to get a B on an 8* titan or a C on a 9*.

Back on topic - those numbers are wrong and misleading.

They are wrong because they assume 150exp / TC1 feeder and 110exp / TC2 feeder. A TC1 feeder averages 156exp, and a TC2 feeder averages 281exp. Food costs are 1600 vs. 2000. Your math is way off.

Your comparison is misleading, because the real expense in leveling heroes is not training feeders, but feeding them to the hero. Here’s what it currently costs me to feed one hero to Kingston:

So even if it were cheaper to train TC1 feeders vs. TC2 feeders, you’re paying five times as much food to feed your 5* as you did to create that feeder. The training cost becomes negligible the higher level hero you’re feeding. If you’re trying to save food, your goal should be to use as few heroes as possible to level up (just like with leveling troops).


Have not gone through all…but yes I should not have a beer before doing math. I used 5000 ham from obviously faulty memory.

My very bad.

Will reply to full after a rest.

What level do you recommend to farm during AR?

Depends on what you aim for, if it is Atlantis Coins then 13-1 Hard, but that place is not good for farming other resources. You should farm in Normal stage for resources…

I farm 2-1-2 for backpacks and recuits


15-9N gives about 30 recruits per 4we
6-9N is about 20 per 3we

I usually have the best success with backpacks in 1-2,1-9 or 1-10


I run 2 TC20 and 2 TC11, feed the 1* to the 4* and the 2* to the 5*, by that I am leveling 10 heroes at the same time in a fair pace and never run out of food or recruits. Works for me, at the moment I have 20 maxed 4/5* working on 10 and by finishing them I will continue on replacing 4* by 5* or on some projects like Tiburtus or Gormek.


No problem, I find my math is off sometimes even with a full night of rest. :wink: The other day I had to delete a lengthy post after I realized my whole argument was based on numbers that were off by an order of magnitude. I didn’t think you meant to post the wrong thing, just didn’t want it to spread.

Loot tier 9+

I use only 1* / 2* Battle items, and Harpoons, on Titans.

Before my retirement, I had no trouble getting A score on 8* Titans and Loot tier 9+ on one of my accounts.

Class quests

I used to use 3* / 4* ingredients to make Dragon attacks and Bomb attacks for class quests.

But have been very successful using 1* / 2* battle items only plus harpoons. ( see notes )

Merciless RNG

But the above account ran 3x Legendary training for 3x months to get my last Classic 4* hero ( purple Cyprian ) after much trying other ways ( see notes ).

Challenge events

You should get plenty of 3* / 4* ingredients during AR while also farming recruits ( see notes)

Before my retirement, I regularly completed all three tiers for challenge events.

You are not wrong.

But depends on your situation.

Waiting for Cyprian

Congrats on your luck!

Even spending a decent amount of money on summons, purple 4* Cyprian eluded me for 2 years. I have 637x Paladin emblems for Cyprian once I get Cyprian to 4* 4.70 .

While running 3x Legendary training ( RT20 ), waiting for Cyprian to arrive, I finally pulled Magni and Sartana.

1x Legendary training

That account is back to 1x Legendary training ( RT20 ) but still missing Lianna and Richard.

Once I get Lianna it will be tempting to switch my 1x Legendary training ( RT20) to 1x Guaranteed rare ( RT12 ). But my hopes for Hero Academy means I will probably just save duplicate 5* heroes from my camp.

Great stuff, very thorough, as always!

I know you saw that I was considering pushing all my TC to 20 in another thread. I should have been more clear: my plan would be to level them all up to 20 but then NOT run them all at 20. I would likely run basically what I’m running now: 20, 11, and 2 flex (currently at 2 since I have a bazillion backpacks from the last Atlantis Rises event).

Part of the reason I’d go to 20 is because of OCD, but mostly it’s on the off-chance that an Advanced Training Camp is introduced. If we are ever able to train troops I want to immediately convert as much of my infrastructure to doing that as possible. I don’t think that’s the most likely troop training location, but I’m still willing to roll the dice.
