I’m laughing myself out right now because of Peng Guo awesome Three Kingdom comics. Read this one and click on it for his main site


Peng Guo created this web comic about the story of the three kingdom but on is own view. Zhang Fei like Mc Donald, Cao Cao have a duck hat and the Red Hare is a red hare… Some might be a little offensive or be NSFW but there are all awesome.

Check these out, click on the image for the main site.

This is kind of a update from my previous post :What to do everyday to maximize your army and heroes but I sometime cut in the in the middle of something and just log in grab some tax, build troop, move around my carrier and help my kingdom in an attack that I forget this stuff.

So here are the top thing I forget to do sometime that are important to do…

1-Greet your fellow brother: Sorry my brother if I forget to greet you, it just that it lost in the city interface. Click on a city, then city again then tavern then the last tab and sometime they’re not enough brother in your brotherhood so you can even click… So please go greet your brother, each time you do it you gain loyalty and you need to get to 41 of loyalty to get the brother in arm skill.


2-Train in the cave for some xp (last 8hr so up to 3 time a day): I usually think about it the first time I login but forget to do it afterward. A friend of mine said, if your afraid of forgetting it, do it right away and if there only a few hours remaining, just cancel and restart for 8hrs so you maximize the amount of training your heroes get. And don’t give a little extra to you favorite heroes with some inspiration, specially when the boost is on.

3-Register battle royal: I log in the morning so this is never enable, when I come back it sometime already 5h00 PM PST. arrrg

A easy way to get gem and a extra tax, try to do it before 5h00 PM


Hum that not battle royal …just a image to fill point 3 and 4

4-Play resource war : It’s at 8h00 PM PST so don’t miss it. I tend to always miss it because 1- it so late and 2- at 8h30 it’s already to late. Its great way to get free resources. Check out the forum for more information.


5-Help your legion in legion league battle: This one can be easy to forget because sometime your legion leaders are human and forget to register your legion. If your legion is strong enough and you don’t have amnesic legion leader you have to remember to go sign in after 8h00 PM (which for some of us is late) and next day you have to go collect your silver ( If your legion win) before 5h00 PM…

If you manage to think about all of this you’ll get a good amount of extra silver the next day.

6- Donate to kingdom: I’m guilty of forgetting this one some time. But at the beginning of the server it essential that you help your kingdom and it will help you later. When there only one left when tend to forget…

7-Buy all gear at mystery shop: most of it is crap, so in the past I rarely visited it at all. Now it’s good to visit the mystery shop because you can recycle all the crappy gear since the update 1.4 so it’s good to go there and buy everything for a total of 15 gear and recycle everything you don’t like.


Recycle all your crappy gear from point 7 and from the historical campaign. All sometime forget this because doing it is freaking (no swearing see) is boring. Click click click get some gem click click get some more, click click nothing …

It worth it but since it tedious I don’t always do it. I hope they will do like in three kingdom online and do batch recycle. You get so many gem if you do it every day and you can upgrade/enhance/refine/temper a lot of your gear after that.


9-Login for free gift:

Now that they log us with the announcement I don’t forget it but I use to do.  Don’t forget to check if there any free gift, there almost free gift every day, sometime you have to do stuff to do it but it’s usually worth it.

10-Check to if there any new heroes (after awhile you might not to do that)

When you have all your heroes we tend to forget to check forget to check for new heroes, I actually got Deng Ai just by refreshing with 10 silver. Ok if you’re using gold you’re probably better to really forget checking heroes with silver, since you probably got a bunch of gold one already…

Other that are not there

Play bull-eye 5 time

Let be honest after doing bull-eye a bunch of time you get bored and never look back… I forget it but then I think of doing it I don’t do it anyway …

Play heroes roster 5 time

Same has Bull-eye but worst…

So what are the thing you tend to forget ?

I found a great video that explain everything you should know about the last CoK update.

[Clash of Kingdoms][Elite][L5][Overall Guide to Version 1.40]

Most people use their main heroes to do logistics work or convert to Siege hero.
However, with Brother-in-arms, your main hero is now a very powerful combat hero with crazy Area of Effect ability. Please start converting your main hero into a fighting machine. Rebirth and reassign stats to Leadership or Power, Enhance stats to increase Leadership or Power, give equipment to boost Leadership/Power, give ability for combat, passive abilities are preferred.


thanks to PigFace for the image

The Brother-in-arms ability is similar to Pang Tong Thunder Fury, and it can actually be much stronger if you organize with your brother well.
As described, the number of brothers from the same garden on the battle field affects the number of targets.
To maximize this ability, create a mailing list of all your brothers (in the garden).
Coordinate and place all the main heroes of the 10 brothers in the same city. The stats of individual hero may not be great, but together, the effect will be fearsome.
It will be like 10 Pang Tongs that hits 10 targets when the ability triggers.
For Brother in Arms skills, here is what I know so far (correct me if I am wrong):
1. Damage: Same like singular focus :  130%+ (10% x skill level)
Note:some source say is -10% less so it’s 120%+ (10% x skill level)
2. Trigger Rate: 40% Chance
3. AOE : 3 + (number of brothers in battle / 3) == so if all 9 brothers in battle AOE will hit 6 enemies (maximum)
Requirement:  when you main hero gain more than 40 loyalty (so 41+), the skill singular focus will change to brother in arm after server maintenance at 4am.

Troop type: all type of troop
Gear effect: every 1% gear effect is about 4.5% in damage
Skill level: every level gain additional 10% damage
Charge attack bar: 2000

Additional note from MingLi about the Tavern : some peoples say that after loyalty = 40 you need at least 5 members to greet each day or loyalty will decrease faster than it increase.

Special thanks to MingLi, Astute and Jitkilan (L10) for help on this guide

Yesterday we saw How to Enhancing & Upgrading and Tuesday we learned how to recycle, today we dig a bit on 2 other addition in the gear enhancement, Refining and Tempering.


Refining uses flaming jade to replace a stat or bonus of an item with a new random stat or bonus. The player is able to select the gear’s stat which will be replaced.
There is no risk to losing the gear using this feature.There is no limit to how many times an item can be refined. Mounts may now have their “Increased marching speed” replaced with a new stat or ability. It’s very useful to remove skill you don’t for other skill  or to improve mounts as by removing increased marching speed for something else.

Numbers of required flaming jade
White – 4x lvl 1 flaming jade per attribute change.
Green – 4x lvl 2 flaming jade per attribute change.
Blue – 10x lvl 3 flaming jade per attribute change.
Purple – 13x lvl 4 flaming jade per attribute change.


Tempering increase the quality of you gear from crude to common (white to green gear) . However tempering is gamble since gears can be destroyed using this feature!
So, if you do not want to lose a particular gear, do not try to temper it.
I wasn’t able to actually try this feature yet because I wasn’t able to get any solid ice. From what I’ve heard  from other player it basically upgrade the color of your gear giving it a additional bonus. For example you can make a green gear become a blue gear therefore it gains an additional stat or bonus.

Thanks to death for is great guide on the new gear feature, really helped me to have more info (specially temper)

Here the link to the forum : http://forum.koramgame.com/thread-50064-1-1.html

If your looking for info on Recycling, enhancing or upgrading check my previous entries:

Clash of Kingdoms – Recycling your gear

Clash of Kingdoms Gear – Enhancing & Upgrading

Yesterday we saw How to recycle, today we dig a bit on 2 other addition in the gear enhancement, Enhancing and upgrading.



It seems the same system has it used to be the max level of gears remains +10.
And you have to use mithril :

Mithril: Increases the enhancement level of gears.
Minor Mithril: Increases the enhancement level of gears upto level +5.

There a Rumor has it that the chances of enhancement have been reduced since mithril is now easier to come by because of recycling.

Check this link to the forum to have more info on how to enhance gear.



This is were you use your Yin Jades from the recycling.
Upgrading gears allows players to use Yin Jades to transform their items to a new version but beware that new gear will requires a higher level… Like this sun tzu manual that I upgraded to lv 62:


What nice with upgrading you won’t lose any gears when you do it.
After each successful attempt the current stats on a gear are increased along with a higher minimum level. Along with these, the amount of yin jade required for the next upgrade increases. The minimum level for items now passes level 30 and a wide range of new items have been introduced including round birettas and gold rings. Note that upgrading may have no effect or reduce your bonus enhancement level, reducing didn’t happened often but something I upgrade and the item stay the same but the level go up…

Hope you liked this guide, I’ll bring another guide on gear enhancement tomorrow about tempering and refining.

Note: any resemblance to Death Guide is purely coincidental(lucky the auto-correct knew that one) in some part, inspirational in some other and almost identical in rare occasion.
If you want to check the original gem go here and tell Death that he’s awesome.

Surprisingly Recycling is not just something of the modern age it something they use to do in the past, in the three kingdom period particularly.
Or maybe it’s just that Koram is going green and is making us recycle our old gear to prevent pollution and and improve our other gear in the process.

Item recycling is the last tab within the gear improvements.  Each player is able to recycle up to 20 gears per day. That mean that if you don’t have gear to recycle you can always buy every gear in the mystery shop for that day then recycle. You won’t get much but is better than nothing.

In return you will receive a variety of jades which are essential to making improvements to the gears you wish to use in battle. Only recycle items which you no longer want or need since they will be destroyed. If you need all your current items, I would recommend buying cheap items from the Mystery Shop for the sole purpose of recycling. Here’s a list of the different items you can get for recycling. I find higher quality gears provide better chances at gaining high level enhancement items.

Yin Jade: Used to upgrade gears, ranges from level I to V for white to orange gears respectively.

Flaming Jade: Used to refine gears, ranges from level I to V for white to orange gears respectively.

Yin Jade Fragments: exchange multiple fragments for yin jade of the same level.

Flaming Jade Fragments: exchange multiple fragments for flaming jade of same level.

Solid Ice Fragments: exchange multiple fragments for solid ice.

Changing Fragment to actual item:
After you have recycled enough gears, its time to trade in your fragments for actual enhancing items. Go to the mystery shop and then item exchange tab. Below all your scrolls you will find the fragments which can be exchanged using minor scholars scrolls.

Have fun recycling, next I’ll explain enhancing and upgrading our gear.

How to march to battle (deploying troop and setting your combat settings)

CoK Academy Quiz
Every player will get 5 chances to do a Quiz each day, There located in the City Academy of your manor. Make sure to do these everyday to get 5 free Basalt gem.
You can find answers in the forum is you click here.

The list is almost unnecessary since the last Clash of Kingdoms update you have a daily task list that keeps track of what you haven’t done today. It’s situated right beside the arena button.


Here the complete list:

1- Collect Tax (up to 12 times a day, 13 if you do the battle royal)
2- Collect Salary (only once every day don’t forget it 🙂 )

3- Check the item in the mystery shop (5 try)

Even if you are pretty much equipped, give it a try since sometime there common even special quality item that may appear.

4- Check the heroes in the tavern (10 try, sometime more)


Even if you have all your heroes, you might find another heroes that suit more your need (like a archer hero if you focus more on archer etc)

In the Arena :


5- Historical Campaign (10 and more a day)

It an easy way to have gems and if your lucky item and scroll. With the number of troop they give at the beginning, you should be able to get through the 2 first scenario easily. If your stuck on a fight that you can’t win, you can always go back and fight other battle to get some scroll (like Zhang Jiao or Dong Zhuo)


6- Last Man Standing (first 10 count max 20 a day)

You might lose some but the more fight you do you might get arena badge that you can exchange for scroll.

7- Battle Royal (register after 5:59 am)

You are almost guarantee to get at least free 10x abyss gems even if you lose and it’s even give you the right to use an extra tax collection.


8- Plantation Battle

This increase you food output for 4hr the % vary depending on the field you select.

9- Legion League Battle

The legion sign-up if between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.), the participant sign-up is after 8:00.

The legion league battle will give the legion participant an extra % bonus for their silver output.

10- Donate to Landmark

Since the amount of silver you can give is limited everyday it makes sense to donate to your kingdom landmark everyday to give your kingdom an edge over the other kingdoms.

In the Academy :


11- Best and the Brightest (5 time)

An easy way to get gems, it you get all the answers right you get a basalt gem each time for a total of 5.

12- Bull Eye (5 time)

You have 1 minute to hit has many balloons you can with 20 arrow, the more balloon you hit the more gem you get. Most of the time, they are lower tier gems like the abyss gem.

Not in the list

Bandit Blowout

City Improvement

Kingdom Bonus & City Boost (governor and player in office only)

Disclaimer: I’m not gonna do another review that describes everything about the game if you want one go here or there. It’s a simple impression about the game, what I liked, what different from other similar game (in this case Clash of Kingdom).


First impression

Before going in the detail, it want to give my first feelings while trying the game.
While the game might look like a Clash of Kingdoms clones they tried harder to make some dynamic different, Koram did a better job that they did with mythopolis and some features in the game are different from Clash of Kingdoms.


The basic

You get to chose between 4 tribes, this might change in the future, there seem to be some other city that might be used like London (the angles or Saxon perhaps) , Constantinople (former roman empire),  Barcelona (for the arab maybe even though it’s historically later that they took Spain) or maybe even Athene (Greeks)
You can read about the barbarian invasion on wikipedia, it’s actually very interesting to see how they come up with all those tribes.




Instead of going through all the feature I’ve decided simply to point out what make the game fun and what new compare to a really similar game CoK.
While at a first glace, it may seem that Idomitus is a Clash of kingdom clone, when you play it you realised that while the fondamental of clash of kingdom, they changed a some feature that changes a bit the game and the outcome of it.


First there no premier elected
Instead of having to run for a premier, the premier (rank X) have to be in the tops player and have a lot of development point.
While there seem to be no apparent for of leadership, leadership is somewhat acquired to meritocracy since you can only increase rank when you achieve a certain level of development. Like in the time of barbarian the strongest will lead the tribes.

I wonder how this will play out, I’ve been a premiers and some player already tend to ignore PO and do crazy stuff, I think well organized guilds will tend to influence more the direction of the kingdom.


Guilds may seem like legion but they can actually have power over city changing rank and taking care of city boost.

The other thing that strokes me is in the beta (or alpha not sure) they were no way to form alliance, I wonder if they will lead it like this. Will I think alliance and peace treaties are a good way to prevent unfortunate attack in the game, removing it in a barbarian invasion setting actually make sense. I these time of darkness the tribes often plot and betray each other in other to get more land and riches.


In the new black market you can buy scrolls and exchange items.

There some change in city management too.
Now instead of city governor, a guild must invest in a city in other to gain control of it and get the privilege to issues city boost and post message.
There are many other notable change, like the way your heroes gain xp, the arena fight (for last man standing and Historical campaign now have an entrance) and the black market has some cool new feature like you can trade you older weapon.


In the Historical campaign and Last man standing you now have to choose which entrance your hero take determining who they will fight.

I actually liked the game and the fact they gave us free gold to play with for the beta testing. You can tried it here and here some link if you want to check some review:
