The Best Permanent Gear for a Rally Trap

Regular gear is the most cost effective and safe gear you can have for a Rally Trap account. You can use it for as long as you want and get the same results every hit. You don't have to worry about presets or switching your gear in time before getting hit by a 1 min Rally, and you don't have to worry about getting hit a few times (ideally) when you are looking away from the game or offline.

An anonymous contributor has built 4 mini Rally Trap tanks and scored over 1 billion points with each of them in the last KvK KE. For the full details of his build, check out the R.R. Rally Trap build in our Best Trap Account Setups article (slightly outdated, but look for gear with similar bonuses).

His recommendations on the best regular sets for a mini rally trap using his build are below.  However, Game of War continues to progress with more research and more devastating Core Sets.  So, we've updated this article to provide a new set of Best Regular Gear for a Rally Trap.  We've retained the old set below to show the difference and for historical purposes.

Currently, the best regular gear set for taking a rally is the Anniversary Colossus Set.  This set has both high specific troop defense and general troop defense.  Its great if you have all the items of the Set.  However, if you have one or two then a good chance exists that not all your troop types will have high defense.  So, if you can get all the pieces of the Colossus gear set then it is recommended you use that set.

For the rest of us that can't yet craft Colossus, it is recommended to use the following:

Gems Recommendations

  • Defense: 25% Defense
  • Shadow Gem: 12.5% Defense, 12.5% Troop Attack Debuff
  • Gem of Honor: 12.5% Defense, 12.5% Troop Attack Debuff. Yes, its the same as Shadow Gem but can equip both)
  • Gem of Protection: 25% Enemy Rally Attack Debuff. The use of this gem is controversial.)  I use two of them to negate enemy's Rally Attack from their hero skill tree, but I'm still testing if I should use more against the occasional rally leader stacking Rally Attack boost gems.  If you have data concerning this please leave a comment below.
  • Elite Defense Special Defense: 25% Defense
  • Rainbow Special Defense: 35% Defense
  • Chocolate Special Gem: 35% Attack Debuff

New gem set research bonus provide additional boosts for your trap.  Combining Lvl 6 Bulwark Gem + Lvl 6 Elusive Gem + Lvl 6 Trickster Gem + Lvl 6 Rainbow Gem provides additional attack bonus.  However, attack for a trap necessarily needed. This gem combination is not required for a successful trap. This research tree is expensive and adds considerable power.  Power added to your trap makes you a less desirable target.

Controversial Kinoichi Kunai

Much controversy exists in Game of War of how many Kinoichi Kunai should be used in traps.  The strength of the Kunai is in its Defense Debuff Resistance of 30%.  Three Kunai and +20% Defense Debuff Resistance (DDR) from research gives traps 110% DDR.  Tests show that three Kunai versus Poseidon cut losses in half over using just two Kunai.

Kunai Test

At lower Defense Debuff percentages Kinoichi's Kunai will benefit your trap less.  However, against high defense debuff core sets it is best to use three Kunai perhaps in a preset so the Rally Leader won't suspect you have them.  The strength of Kunai against high defense debuff has become common knowledge.  So, if you show three of them you may have a hard time getting people to set on you.

Also, Blind Eagle in his article Reign of Kinoichi's Kunai is Over, rally leaders are using full attack setups to overwhelm Kinoichi's Kunai users.

Blind Eagle is currently working on a battle tested article all about Kinoichi Kunai's uses.
