Dragon Arena Tips and Tricks

What is Dragon Arena

Dragon Arena is an event that comes around on an, as of yet, unspecified schedule, currently running about once or twice a week.  It was first released in December of 2019, and at this point is likely still evolving in terms of rewards and ranking, though I don’t expect the structure itself to change much more if past events are anything to go by.

DA is an event that all guild members can help out with, and unlike other events involves coordinated military action en-mass over the course of a one-hour match against another guild.  The rewards at this point are limited, but in my opinion it is the most fun you can have in the Lords Mobile universe.

I’ve seen DA participants, friend and foe alike, making some mistakes during the last few events, and thought I’d take some time to explore some of the basics for those still learning the ropes.  This is not meant to be an in-depth strategy guide, but will help get you on the correct path to make that journey yourself.

Monster Hunting, By The Numbers – A Statistical Analysis of Rewards

I was so excited the first time I was able to hunt a level 2 monster.  I mean, just look at the rewards listed for them!  To be able to pull them in, even at increased energy cost, would be incredible.  And on my first hunt…I received 10k wood.

When my guild could finally take down a level 2 monster I was convinced that the guild-wide reward box would contain something of incredible value.  So we buckled down, worked together, blew some energy items, and finally had the opportunity to find out what was inside.  Again, disappointment was the order of the day.

Once I got over this disappointment I started wondering how different the rewards for each level of monster really were?  Maybe we just got unlucky on our first one or two.  And did you get a bonus for landing the killing blow?  Were rewards different based on castle level?  So I set about recording some numbers to address those questions, and was surprised by some of the answers

Dark Essences, By The Numbers – A Statistical Analysis of Rewards

About a month after I began playing, when we were finally able to get the rare lvl 3 dark essence from tippy-top lvl 1 darknests, I started wondering how different the rewards really were at each essence level.  At times it seemed like a level 3 essence didn’t provide much more value than a level 1, and it made me question if it was worth all the trouble to fight so hard for them.

Much to my surprise, I could find no good information online.  At best the occasional person would bust out an anecdote to support a claim one way or another, but that was hardly convincing.  So I opened up Excel, and set about tracking the rewards I got from every darknest on each of my accounts over the next couple months.  What I found surprised me.

Easily Play Multiple Lords Mobile Accounts Using Your Computer

At some point in your Lords Mobile career, you may get the itch to play multiple accounts.  For me it was when I started reading about trap accounts and farm accounts, and decided I wanted to try them without giving up my main.  There are many guides available online on how to do it using your phone, but if you’re like me you’re going to begin to feel:

  • Overwhelmed by the process of switching back and forth on one device
  • Agitated by trying to play on a tiny screen (okay, maybe I’m just old)

Well, there is a better way…

Rewards For Kingdom Hunters KvK

I tend to be a relatively cautious player in trying new things, and have noticed that many events are targeted on the max-level P2P end-game players, so there are some things I get into far too late.  KvK is one of those things.

I usually try searching online before trying these sorts of things, but in Lords Mobile that is usually a fruitless endeavor.  I found content like this guide, or this video, which provide intermediate to advanced tactical discussions, but don’t touch upon the framework and rewards to get that KvK noob started.

I finally gave it a shot, and after my first foray into the KvK world, I wanted to start by providing an overview of the activities and rewards for others wondering. Continue reading “Rewards For Kingdom Hunters KvK”
