Forges are relatively new to me, and so is using battle items. I’m starting to rank things based on how useful they are, and if I can afford to craft them or not.
First I used bear and turtle banners, axes, and arrows against titans.
Then I noticed that I was out of Metal Ores, and the bear banners took TWO of them, and Axes only took one. I’ve mostly stopped using bear banners, and don’t craft them anymore.
Second, I discovered that battle items could blast me through the three-boss challenge event stages which I still have trouble with. (5x Dragon Attack, Bomb, Axe, and Arrow, or however much of that I could carry at various stages.
I’m not running out of anything yet, but Metal Ores and Hardwood Lumber reserves are low or dwindling.
Third, I finally got Wu Kong and started using him against titans; now I use mana potions. I’m rapidly chewing through the ingredients of minor mana’s right now, but I’ll be doing the 60% mana potions and dig into my stores of dust and midnight roots next. When I get a forge upgraded to 17, I’ll probably start crafting Super Mana’s too.
Time Stops and Tornados look awesome, but I can’t craft them yet either. Soon-ish, I think. I hear that you kinda need them for 10* titans, but my alliance is getting 8*s. I’m kinda planning on burning through my stockpile making them.
I’ve always had a ton of healers, so I almost never use any healing potions, and I’ve gotten more revive scrolls and miracle scrolls in loot than I’m likely to use.
I farm 8-7, so someday I’ll want to burn some food, and make over 4000 minor healing from my common herbs, but I don’t know when I’ll use those either.
Potent Healing potions don’t appear to use any ingredients that would limit my other crafting. Regular healing potions use mushrooms, which are in other things, but don’t seem to be ones I use a lot or am running out of.
Super Healing, Revive, and Miracle all use ingredients that would go into my list of more useful items listed earlier, and I probably won’t craft them at all.
What do other people do?
