Building Boosts, Time Orbs: Guide to Boosting Buildings

Game of War Building Boosts Time Orbs

Building Boosts - A "REAL-istic Approach"

Building boosts provide a secret edge over the enemy! These boosts do not appear in scout reports.

Your buildings are a foundation of your power. You can now become even more powerful with building boosts.

Building boosts are great because they provide boosts to the player that enemies cannot anticipate.  In other words, it is no longer possible to know how much base stats a player has, or how much debuff is necessary to zero out a heroless stronghold.  You may have multiple buildings boosted which add a significant boost.

Also, building boosts provide additional boost to your stronghold when you Hero is absent or captured.

A "Realistic Approach" to Boosting Buildings with Time Orbs

Now that Game of War players are getting more familiar with building boosts and how they work, many have asked me what stat they should shoot for on this or that building?

First, target buildings that possess that posses the stat you desire.  *See the list below*

  • Trap - Defense, Attack Debuff
  • Rally Leaders  - Attack and Defense Debuff.
  • Wonder Fighter - You need it all baby!  Attack, Health, Attack Debuff, Health Debuff most importantly.

Time Orb Building Boosts

  • Prison - Attack, Defense Debuff
  • Gymnos - Hero Experience
  • Forge - Health
  • Altar - Individual Attack
  • Academy - Defense, Attack, Troop Defense Debuff
  • Marketplace - Enemy Troop Health Debuff
  • Barracks - Individual Health, Troop Queue, Defense
  • Hall of War - Rally Attack, Attack
  • Embassy - Defense
  • Watchtower -  Enemy Attack Debuff
  • Storehouse - Individual Resource Production
  • Villa - Individual Health
  • Stronghold - Troop Attack, Rally Attack Debuff
  • Hospital - Health
  • Wall - Defense

Ok, now with buildings in mind to boost, how much should you boost them?  This depends on your Time Orb supply.

Upgrade Buildings Before Boosting

Keep in mind that each application of Time Orbs increases your Luck XP level bar.  The higher the building level the greater the increase to your Luck XP Level.  At level 26 you gain 400% increase to luck xp for each Time Orb application!

So, its important to upgrade your buildings as high as you can before you start boosting. You can save millions of orbs by upgrading your buildings first. This makes getting to higher levels of luck much cheaper!

Boost to Luck Level

With buildings at desired upgraded levels, you are ready to boost.  I've discovered that instead of watching every single boost for a stat, instead boost to a desired luck level that is efficient to obtain. So, spam the boost until you notice the luck level bar starts to slow down. In other words, at first you will increase Luck Level really fast! Woah, you are awesome! Eventually, however, you will get an uncomfortable feeling like you're wasting orbs. You're becoming weak, nooooooo.

Check your Time Orbs. Do you have millions of those suckers? Well, maybe you can keep going but keep in mind how many more buildings you still need to do.  If you are on one of the last buildings then remember, what else are you going to use these silly orbs for?  Nothing! So, keep going, or stop.  The choice is yours.  Maybe keep some around for higher building levels in the future though.

Ok, so comfortable now?  You aren't weak by the way... You're GRRRRRREAT! *thumbs up*

Time to roll for a good boost stat!

What's a Good Boost Stat?

Now, start looking at the stats for a desired type and number. For building 24 players this luck level will be 14-16.  If you want maximum numbers, however, you will need to get to a luck level which is the same as the building or one level under.  So for Building 24 shoot for 23 or 24.  For 26, you must go to Luck Level 25 or 26.  At this level you will soon start popping those Legendary Building Boosts in Alliance and Kingdom Chat... COOL! Ego Stat +1.

For those of us without a gazillion orbs to boost luck level, we will shoot for Luck Levels 5 below to get "above average" numbers and within 10 Luck levels of max building to get "average" stat boosts.

I'm probably forgetting something and will come back to update in a little while, but for now this is a great approach to boosting buildings!

Oh yeah!  Once you get a comfortable stat on that first building, move to the 2nd priority building and so on to the 3rd and 4th.  Once you have all your "main" buildings boosted with the desired stat, defense, attack, etc. then you can play around with the buildings that provide a secondary boost to your city!

How Building Boosts Work

You can use Time Orbs to apply a permanent random boost to one of your buildings.  Building Boosts are similar to an enchantment or set bonus that you place on your building.

Below is a list of record building boosts reported.

Want to be added to the list of records, add your screenshot in the comments below!

I am updating these boosts to reflect Stronghold 25/26 in the coming days!  So, far I've discovered the following max building boosts.  Should you receive higher please let me know.

Buildings Level 24 Records

Building Boosts Records

The boosts applied to the buildings vary, but each building appears to have a set of bonuses possible.

Different buildings can receive different potential boosts: Building Boosts - Luck

Building Boosts

In the above image you can see the Rewind Orbs, Time Orbs, Luck, your Current Boots and Total Boost.

The tooltip explains that you can apply Boosts using Time Orbs to receive Luck XP.  Each time you roll, or spend Time Orbs you will increase the Luck XP of the building.  The higher your Luck XP the greater the boosts.

Each time you "roll" by spending Time Orbs you will receive a different stats with a different multiplier.  With each Time Orb spent to roll a different boosts you are granted experience toward your building's Luck level.  Higher level buildings gain more Luck XP when rolling for boosts.

If you roll an extremely powerful legendary boost, your name is announced in the Kingdom Chat! Legendary Building Boost Game of War Fire Age

Time Orbs

Time Orbs are used to increase Luck XP. If you want to "roll" a different boost, you must spend Time Orbs again to achieve it.

Rewind Orbs

Rewind Orbs are used to return to a previous bonus as needed.  So unlike "Reset Special Base/Full Special Bonus" where you lose previous set bonus if you "roll" a new one, building boosts are somewhat stored.  However, you can only rewind back one boost.

How to Get Time Orbs

You probably noticed Time Orb Alliance Gift Tiles.  These tiles, once you deplete them, earn you Time Orbs!  Also, you can complete events to receive Time Orbs and Rewind Orbs.  You can purchase Time Orbs x 50,000 and Rewind Orbs x 100 in the Gold Store per pack. So, get out there and farm some Alliance Time Orb Tiles!

Time Orb Building Max Boosts

To maximize Luck of each building type you need the following number of Time Orbs:

  • Academy - 1000
  • Altar - 1000
  • Barracks - 500
  • Embassy - 1000
  • Forge - 1000
  • Gymnos - 1000
  • Hall of War - 2000
  • Hospitals - 500
  • Marketplace - 1000
  • Prison - 1000
  • Stronghold - 5000
  • Storage House - 1000
  • Villa - 500
  • Watchtower - 1000

 Heroless Strongholds with Building Boosts

Heroless strongholds now will be much more difficult to zero stats and burn because of all the building boosts they could have running.

A rally leader will need significantly more debuff and attack to make sure he is zeroing all stats necessary to burn a player without hero.  Building boosts do not appear in scout reports.  Combine this with Ultimate Execution from Graveyard 23 and Battle Marks Hero Notification  GoW just added another level of complexity, which makes Game of War the best game going right now.

Building Boosts at Wonder and Super Wonder

The best feature of building boosts is its impact on Wonder fights in GoW.  Building Boosts create an additional level of strategy to battles for Super Wonder and Wonder.  At the moment, the only way to boost your buildings is by "grinding" Alliance Events and Time Orb tiles.

Building Boosts

Players diligently worked to figure out which buildings boost what stat.  The boosts are not completely random.
