In some Kingdoms in Iron Throne, it can feel like we spend a lot of time under a shield. Kingdoms with super maxed players really know what I am referencing. While for some kingdoms getting out from the shield may be more feasible for others players it can sometimes feel like this goal is very far or even out of reach.
However, one of the things that make Iron Throne unique is that even when you feel like you are living under a shield there is still a wealth of opportunities to be able to engage in combat and play the game in unique ways. The last thing you want to do is drop shield in a situation where it is not safe. For some players doing this can lead to huge losses. So when you feel that you are stuck living in a shield how can you continue to engage with the game in a way that it remains enjoyable?
Engaging in the Iron Throne Battle while Remaining Safe
I have played a lot of games. In most games, if you are living under a shield you are limited in what you can do. Maybe you can scout, kill monsters, and gather on tiles but other than that there is not a lot of play that you can engage in. In Iron Throne, there are tons of game modes that you are able to engage in while remaining safe. Here we will cover these game modes and the different ways they can be beneficial to you because these Game Modes are more than fun, they help prepare you to unshield.
Ten Game Modes you Can Engage within Iron Throne
Game Mode One: Town Mode
Town Mode is one way you can engage with the game while being shielded. Town Mode offers a unique perspective on the game telling us the story of Infidus and allowing us to engage with our Heroes in new ways. In addition, you are able to get tons of different items from Town Mode to help you when you return to your city so you can continue working towards higher levels of gameplay. For more information Town Mode be sure to check out this article with Video included from ChrisHero100!
Game Mode Two: Battle Royale
This Game Mode is a great one that you can participate in while shielded and still get to play a PvP style. This game mode is literally about not burning and beating the clock. You want to burn other players out while keeping yourself safe. The good thing here is that you do not lose any actual troops and everyone is on an even playing field with your boosts from home not affecting this battle mode. You can participate in Battle Royale up to 4 times a day at the set times for this event and you also earn prizes by playing Battle Royale to help with your build.
Game Mode Three: Golden Moon
Golden Moon is a newer PvP content that was just released in December. This allows you the opportunity to go in with your own boosts, stats, and troops and engage in different styles of play. Whether you are attacking other players, being attacked yourself, or battling it out for a Sanctuary the Golden Moon offers a vast array of opportunities and rewards for holding Golden Sanctuaries! What is important to note is that even if you are zeroed on the Golden Moon when you return home you have not lost any troops.
This is a great way to test your limits and to refine your build and skills. If you are looking for more information on Golden Moon be sure to check out our article where we discuss it and the different things you need to be aware of.
Game Mode Four: Monsters, Chaotic Strongholds, and Defiled Strongholds
Oh my! I know we mentioned that you can hunt monsters and collect tiles in other games while shielded. However, Monsters, Chaotic Strongholds, and Defiled Strongholds are truly unique in Iron Throne. Monsters drop materials and other items that are super helpful in building and working towards better stats.
Killing Chaotic Strongholds and Defiled Strongholds helps to replenish your resources so that you can continue to research, to craft gear, and more. These features are truly part of the bread and butter of Iron Throne. By engaging in this you can increase your build even more. If you look at our December Recap from last month you will see players who told you how hitting these on Blood Moon helped them upgrade buildings, increase research, and improve their gear. These are the things that you will ultimately need in order to be able to advance in Iron Throne so take the time to engage in worthwhile activities such as these.
Game Mode Five: Deathmatch
The next two Game Modes are a little different from the ones already mentioned. Deathmatch is fun for everyone. You are able to engage in PvP style combat and win prizes that will continue to help you to advance in the game. However, what sets it apart from some of the other game modes is that everything matters from your Heroes to your Gear to your Research to your Boosts.
However, because you do not use your own troops and do not lose actual Troops it allows all players to engage in the battle. Deathmatch is literally a fight to the death. The last team standing or with the most points when the timer runs out wins. However, be sure to brush up on how this battle mode works because this not only requires strategy but requires strong research, boosts, gear, and great teamwork. You are able to engage in this Game Mode up to 4 times a day at set intervals.
Game Mode Six: Continental Domination
This Risk Type Game Mode is a fan favorite. While in this Game Mode you do use your actual troops they are returned at the end of Domination. In this, your Research, Gear, Boosts, and more are once again essential. In addition, you need to be able to have good teamwork and strategy!
However, one thing to note is that this Game Mode has amazing rewards and is definitely one worth participating in. Not only is it fun but the rewards will help you as you work towards continuing to advance and working towards being able to come out from under your shield.
Game Mode Seven: Blood Moon
This one may seem a little bit confusing to include here. However, you can go to the Blood Moon and maintain your shield until a winning Kingdom is declared. Blood Moon is one of the best places to use your AP. The reason being that you receive Double the rewards when killing monsters and eliminating Chaotic Strongholds on the Moon. So where you may have previously gotten 600k Silver you are now receiving 1.2 Million Silver. This is an amazing way to be able to get great rewards and to grow.
Speaking of Growing! Do your Research and Building in conjunction with events on Blood Moon to earn even more prizes and rewards and contribute to your Kingdoms victory.
Game Mode Eight: The Arena
Looking for even more ways to be able to battle it out against other players? Enter the Arena and test your strategy against other players without losing any of your actual Troops. The Arena allows you to set up troops and use Dimensional Battle Stats to play against others. Work your way up in the rankings and earn additional rewards at the end of the season!
To learn more about the Arena and this game mode be sure to check out this article.
Game Mode Nine: Dimensional Battle
Dimensional Battle allows you to test your strategy and the strength of your troops while earning rewards. Can you make it through these battles with three starts to earn the most rewards? Once you earn three stars the opportunity to conquer these levels again in Challenge Mode appears.
Game Mode Ten: Watch Princess Kat’s Videos and Read Elite Articles
Ermmm… yep that is a thing, I promise! I am going to tell you all this. When I am killing Monsters I am watching Kats Videos. When I have some time to kill, I read our articles. There are a lot of Game Modes and everyone has room to grow and learn and improve in this game.
So if you do not think this is a game mode then you should. Kill Monsters and watch Princess Kat. Have your phone in one hand while you play and your tablet or computer opens next to you and read articles. Whatever, you do just make sure you know the strategy and you know how to continue to build and grow for the day when you are ready to come out from under the shield.
Bonus Game Mode- Dark Moon
As the game continually evolves we see more events and more game modes. One of our newest is Dark Moon. In this game mode, you not only get to participate in Sanctuary battles but also PvP. The perk is that you do not use your normal troops in this game mode.
You purchase troops with signets. Signets can be purchased with RSS and other currencies, as well as getting a few free signets a day. While your stats do matter this game mode allows players to test things out without taking huge losses. Worried about purchasing signets? Set a daily limit and then stick to it! One of the great things about Dark Moon is awesome rewards.
Taking advantage of game modes you can play while keeping your account safe is important for rewards and continued growth to help you get to a place where you can drop the shield!
