Misty Continent: Cursed Island Military Guide
Many types of people play Misty Continent: Cursed Island and each one has a different style of playing the game. The PvP system is something that a lot of strong players enjoy and if a beginner gets unlucky, they might end up being those players’ victims if they notice that they haven’t set up a powerful defense. In this Military Guide, we will help players establish a strong army that will help them defend their estate from any external threats and ensure that they are able to play the game.
For players who aren’t interested in just defending troops, this military guide can also help them build an army that can go on the offensive. While attacking other players can be extremely difficult, once you understand the fundamentals of battle in this game, you’ll be able to determine whether or not a battle is worth fighting or not. Whether you want to defend or attack, it’s important to learn how the game works so that you won’t be clueless when the time comes in Misty Continent: Cursed Island.
Understanding what kind of troops you have is the first step in developing your military. Misty Continent: Cursed Island features four troop types: infantry, distance, cavalry, and artillery units. The first three unit types have a weakness vs strength relationship with each other, meaning that diversifying your army is important. Artillery units are specialized only to destroy the enemy’s structural defenses and are generally weak to all the other troop types, meaning they’re only useful during siege battles.
Every soldier type in the game can be promoted to the next tier by upgrading the training facility to the specified level. While units that were already available will remain in their previous tiers, units that are trained inside that facility moving forward will follow their current ranks. A common tip that advanced players give is to have the right balance between infantry, distance, and cavalry while having just a couple hundred units of artillery unless you’re planning to attack other players.
The hero is the centerpiece of your military with these units commanding their own battalions in the army. Each hero specializes in commanding a certain troop type and gives them a passive bonus depending on their level. While you can deploy units without the need for a hero to command them, the difference between the bonus stats that they gain is too much to ignore. Players are encouraged to collect heroes that command all the different troop types to increase their army’s overall power.
Whenever the player levels up the hero, their raw stats increase. At certain levels, heroes will be able to have the option to unlock a new skill that usually gives a passive bonus to the player’s military. Players can get new heroes when they try to recruit in the tavern. Heroes are based according to their rarity with S-tier units (Gold Border) being the strongest in the game. However, players with A-tier units will usually be able to keep up in the game since that’s the minimum requirement for a strong army.
Researching is important to unlock the full potential of the different sectors of your estate. In our Economy Guide, we introduced how the exponential growth of your bonuses can really make your estate prosper if the player is dedicated to upgrading all their research branches to their maximum level. The same can be said of the military, especially so because even a 1% buff can mean the difference between victory and defeat in a battle where both players have the same amount of troops.
Players often don’t upgrade some parts to the full extent such as march speed, carrying capacity, and other techs they seem to determine as non-essential, but it’s still good to upgrade these. March speed is an underrated tech that can really help your estate make progress faster. Take note that the faster your troop’s march, the more times you can send them out in a limited time frame. This is very important in the late game because whenever you send your troops to march, you want them to be able to go back home quickly to avoid getting attacked.
Marching is something that players need to think about very carefully. We’ve already talked a bit about it in the previous tip, but players need to understand that properly managing your marches can make the difference in a fight. Players have a limited number of march slots, which can be increased by unlocking a new slot in the research lab. Having multiple march slots is an advantage since it allows you to do more tasks in a shorter amount of time, which is important in PvP because you don’t want to give your opponent time to take a break.
Take note that your marches can be seen by all players on the server, which may expose you as vulnerable to your enemies if you’re planning on launching a large-scale attack on another enemy with the majority of your troops. It’s a good idea not to go overkill with your troop count and send just enough troops to get the job done. If you do plan on launching a full-scale attack, make sure that you have an ally ready to reinforce your estate in case the enemy tries to sneak their way to victory.
Types of Attacks
There are two types of attacks in Misty Continent: Cursed Island: Raiding and Sieging. Raiding refers to small skirmishes whose goal is to get resources from a weaker or vulnerable enemy without sacrificing a large number of troops. A raid is successful when they get at least 25% more resources than the amount they need to replenish their army with more troops. If you’re planning on raiding other players, we recommend those who are inactive in the game or those that have recently been attacked.
Sieging is the second type of attack which focuses more on destroying the player. The goal of a siege is to eliminate the opponent’s defenses and decimate their military presence. In this attack type, the losses are irrelevant as long as the player is ultimately victorious in decimating the enemy’s military power. However, it’s important to take note that defenders have an overwhelming advantage and usually involve twice the number of troops for a siege to be successful.
