This guide will help you understand the Magic Spire. This is a great place to get resources, Dragon Items, Equipment Fragments and more. A screenshot of the Magic Spire in your Stronghold can be seen below.
First Time in the Magic Spire
The first time you enter the Magic Spire you will instantly be introduced to the first of 18 floors. Each floor, except for the last, has a Monster you need to defeat. Defeating the Monster will allow you to progress to the next floor or move to the mines using the green arrows on the screen. After defeating each Monster you will gain spire coins which can be spent on stat buffs. These stat buffs will only apply whilst you are in the Magic Spire and not outside. You do not have to buy stat buffs with the spire coins and you can save them up and buy stronger buffs on higher floors.
The first floor is the only floor which will not have access to the Mines.
Accessing the Mines
As you reach Floor 2 onwards, you will see a portal on the right. Using this portal will send you into the mines for that Floor. You will see the mine level above the portal before you enter.
You will notice that Mines Level 1 & 2 are “Protected”. These mines are safe from attackers. All other mines are hostile.
Mining in the Spire
As mentioned above, Mines Level 1 & 2 are protected from any attacks, meaning you can peacefully gather for 10 hours each time without being attacked. This is great for players who are not comfortable with higher level mines.
Mines Level 3 and above are hostile. This means you are able to attack Lords who are on these tiles and take them over. But why would you want to mine on a higher level floor you may ask? This is because the level of the mine determines how many Magic Crystals you are able to gather per hour. Being able to gather more Magic Crystals means you will be able to buy more items from the Spire Shop. Some items are quite expensive whereas others are a little cheaper.
The maximum time you can spend on a Mine in the Spire is 10 hours. This is the same no matter which floor you mine on.
Fights in the Magic Spire
In the Magic Spire, Merlin will provide you with troops to fight. If you lose a fight against a Monster or a Lord on a mine, you will not lose troops. Your stats in the Spire will use your Lords Equipment, Dragons Stats, Hero Stats, Research as well as stats gained from purchasing buffs from the benefits shop in the Spire. You will be able to see your overall stats on a battle report after a mine battle.
As you progress through the floors, the benefits you can purchase from the Benefits Shop will become gradually more expensive, but the benefits become stronger as well. Strategically purchasing benefits on some floors and not others to save your spire coins is important to get the best possible stats for higher floors and mines.
Before you decide to attack a Lord on a hostile mine, you can view their Lord profile by tapping on the mine and selecting the “Info” option. This will show you the power of the Lord and there kills/losses etc.. Sometimes using this information may help you gauge whether you will be able to defeat the Lord.
A good tip for attacking fellow Lords, however, is to remember they can only use a single march on the tile so their overall power is not necessarily representative of the march formation they have on the Mine you are contesting.
Gather Rates of Mines
As you progress to higher level Mines, the number of Magic Crystals you can get in a 10 hour period. Below is a chart with all of the gather rates per floor.
|Floor||Mine Level||Full Gather||Hourly Rate|
Resetting the Spire
Depending on the floor you mine will depend on how long the Spires automatic reset is. This can range from 24 hours to a maximum of 72 hours. Whilst a mines maximum gather time is 10 hours you can begin gathering on another mine before the Spire resets.
In addition to the above, if you have finished mining a tile or you get beaten and therefore knocked of a tile, you will be able to manually reset the Spire at your own time. This is also true for the protected mines Levels 1 and 2. You can reset at will even when you are gathering on the protected mined.
To manually reset the Mines you will need to tap on the Settings Cog which is the bottom right corner, then you “Reset Spire” followed by “Confirm”
Items in the Spire Shop will unlock depending on which floor you have managed to reach. Various items will be available right from the very start which is useful for players of lower levels. Ther next batch or items will unlock permanently for your account once you reach Floor 5. The final batch of items is unlocked once you have reached Floor 10.
Items in the shop include; Resources, VIP Points, Dragon Experience, Dragon Assault & Guardian Points, Equipment Designs, Steel, Rare Material Fragments, Gem Fragments and more.
It is important to note that items in the shop have a daily restriction on the amount you can purchase.
Using March Capacity / Defense and Attack Boosts before you enter the Spire will allow you to benefit from the added bonuses whilst inside the Spire.
King Status will also affect your combat stats whilst inside the Spire
The Title ‘Honor’ which can be received from the King will increase your March Capacity inside the Spire.
If you are struggling to buy benefits on mid to high-level floors, stop buying benefits on the first few floors to benefit from bigger benefits on higher floors by saving up Spire Coins.
