Age of Magic - 10+ Strategies and Tactics

Allow me to share guide and tips on strategies and tactics in battles and in developing heroes to have a greater chance of winning and progressing faster. Experience in combat, as well as mistakes made are very valuable lessons in this game.

In addition to strategies and tactics, the power of each hero and total power also plays an important role, as well as the composition of heroes used in dealing with opponents. Every hero has strengths and weaknesses.


The hero's weakness generally comes from his or her own strength, and vice versa. When to be a weakness and when to be a strength, often depends on what opponent you are facing.

Alright, without further writing nonsense, here are tips on strategies and tactics to win and advance faster in the Age of Magic.

Age of Magic Guide on Strategies and Tactics Tips

1. Join a Clan

Join a clan as soon as you reach level 28, so you can participate in Raids and Clan Wars to get tokens to buy shards that can't be obtained from other places.

Do not create your own clan, unless your power is above 1 million, and have enough friends who want to join you from the beginning.

Look for clans with members greater than 24, 29 is better, even though for lowest raid it will need 16 players only. Use 'Search Clan' and Global Chat (click top left icon, tap Global Chat, close screen, tap bottom left icon, tap Global on top left), and choose a clan with weekly portal stones of each member are at or close to 4800.

After joining a clan your status is Private, and normally your status will be upgraded to Veteran after participating in Clan War. Being a Veteran means you can launch Raids with a head start and can choose lane.

Leave clan that is slow to start or complete Raids due to low contribution of portal stones and inactivity of clan's members.

After being in a clan for a while, move to a stronger one to get more tokens and better equipments. Multiply your total power (TP) with 30, and look for a clan with TP of 20%-30% higher than that. The higher, the better.

Your hero's development will be slow if you stay in a clan for too long. Loyalty is not determine by how long you stay in a clan, but by showing high standard of contribution while your are in the clan.

Your numbers and ranks on 7 days Portal Stones, Raid Points and Clan Tokens will help you when applying to another clan. Go to 'Clan', tap your clan's name, tap 'Members', tap 'All' and chose one under 'Sorting' to see your performance.

Don't change clans before a Raid is finished so that the rewards are not lost.


2. Market Manipulation

The basic idea is focus and the purpose of this approach is to develop your heroes faster, by working on limited number of heroes, one or two, especially after reaching level 7.

So you should have only one or two heroes at level 8 at any point of time, and make them level 9 before upgrading your level 7 heroes to level 8, and so forth. That way you will get equipments that you really need from Market place of Market, Arena, ToH, VoT, Clan and Raids. Check how it works in Pulcho's YouTube Video Channel.

3. Quests and Clan Quests

Always check Quest at the bottom right screen, immediately after opening the game. There are two quest: Quests (your personal target to accomplish) and Clan Quests. You have to complete both quests every single day.

You will get rewards after completing each of your Quests, and a handsome rewards after completing all of them (or Today's Quests). Never miss your Quests!

Most important thing you must see in the Clan Quests is "Next: ......".

If you read e.g. "Next: Descent into Horror" than don't do current Descent into Horror. Postpone it until new quests started after timer reset. That way you can get max rewards.

If you read "Next: Hero's Journey", don't spend your energy in Heroic and Legendary Modes until timer reset. You have to complete every Clan Quests, or else your clan will kick you out.

You can also claim refill energy in the Quest menu.

4. Send Request for Friend

Send requests to the strongest players in the clan to help you in campaigns. Another source is Top Clans.

Don't hesitate to send requests, it's free, and the only risk is getting rejected. If rejected, keep trying until someone is kind enough to accept you.

Global chat can also be a source of friend requests. If you can't speak English, use your local language.

Limit your friends whose TPs are lower than yours, except to help other players when your TP is above 1 million.

Go to 'Friends' in the main screen, clik 'Manage' and delete the ones with last activity of more than 1 day.


5. Meta Team

Just want to give you an idea of meta team that are commonly used in Arena and Raids. Here they are:

Archons with Argen
Archons with Elios
Archons, Kharannah

Barbarian (Denaya, 7 Knives / Swam Killer, Bellara), Azariel, Magnus
Barbarian (Denaya, 7 Knives, Swamp Killer, Bellara), Kromme
Barbarian (Denaya, 7 Knives, Swamp Killer, Bellara), Azariel

Children of the Forest (Beorn, Lucky), Katar, Kharannah, Magnus

Blue Artus (Artus, Sacrif, Magnus, Tiros, Roinar)
Blue Beast (Roinar, Sun-Wukong, Tsuna, Rok, Phoenix)

Dark Elves (DE) without Azariel
DE without Llael

Dragonkin (DK) (Drak, Khar), Beorn, Lucky, Magnus
DK (Drak, Katar, Khar), Beorn, Lucky
DK (Drak, Katar, Khar), Cathbad, Dreverard
DK (Drak, Katar, Dexxa, Khar), Kromme
DK (Drak, Katar, Khar), Arkhane, Kromme
DK (Drak, Katar, Dexxa, Khar), Lucky
DK (Drak, Katar, Dexxa, Khar), Sacrif
DK (Drak, Katar, Dexxa, Khar), Magnus

Druids without Myrddin

Orks (Arkhane, Las'Khary, Kromme, Da'Ghan, Rok'Khan)


Heroes from other factions are rarely used in Arena, but you need almost all of heroes to be used in Dark and Light Campaigns, Challenges, Events, Raids, and Clan War.

However, in Fire Gates Raids you will also need Demons, Arechon Undead, Goblins and Kobolds to beat certain nodes. Different factions and brotherhoods are needed for Gates of Doom and Celestial Gates. In short, those raids demand you to upgrade neraly all of your heroes to the max.


6. Magic Pass

Always buy Magic Pass to increase heroes' power. Important: after collecting rewards from the 1st node, don't collect your rewards in the subsequent nodes until Legendary Treasure or Horn of Plenty is active. This way you can collect more of important equipments and silver.


7. Challenges

Focus on leveling up the heroes needed to conquer Sorcerers Duel for silver, Sharpshooter's Test for skill cubes, Live by the Sword for healing kits, and Battle of the Strongest for arcane stars.

Work on one challenge before shifting your focus to the next one. Those four challenges are needed in a very long time. The rest becomes less valuable starting at the intermediate level, but you need to finish all of them regardless.


8. Events

Try to complete all events as soon as possible, but you may need to prioritize.

The Token Rush to get silver and gold tokens. This is one of the most important events that you have to finish until the last level, although you need to buy certain equipment IX to get to equipment level 12 for the 5 heroes.

Fractured World for Balthazar's shard: buy chaos energy at least 2x50 gold coins. Max level of Balthazar is required to get Artus shard.

The Kobold Business for Rok's shards. Choose 5 kobolds that are the easiest to level up, other than Torak and Wyrm Priest (WP).

Forest Shadows for Tileana's shard: level up Cernuol and Maeglin early on, harvest Idril in the campaign, buy Gloriana in Clan War's shop. Tileana's max level is required to get Naja.

Fox Hunt for Tsuna's shard: level up the easiest heroes in Arekhon Undead faction to max level. Tsuna is used in the Cobra Strike, and a must hero for Beastmen faction.

Cobra Strike for Naja's shards. Be diligent in harvesting Roinar early on, and unlock Siegfried in the Winter's Break event.

Warrior of Light for Argen's shard: this is quite difficult, but you still have to consistently power up 5 heroes from the Ra'Archne faction through Valley of Treasures, Clan shop and Raids shop.

Abbys Crystal for Daimyo shards: diligently harvest Orihime in the Dark Campaign, and Mizuhiko in Valley of Treasure. Purchase Taneda at the Valley of Treasure shop, Hotei at Tomb of Horrors and Clan War, and Kage at the Way of the Ninja event.

Master and Apprentice for Artus' shard:, requires max levels of Balthazar, Kage, Rok, Succubus, and Abaddon.

Winter's Break for Siegfried's shard, this is not too difficult. Once unlocked, the Siegfried's shard can be purchased at the Clan shop.

Two Princesses for the Sandariel's shard: strengthen the heroes needed until you can conquer the last dot, and buy energy at least 2x50 gold coins to speed up the shards' posession. Always farm Sandariel even after you have maxed her, to get Trorin's shards at Soulwarden Shop

Will-o'-the-wisp for the Succubus' shard: strengthen 5 demons to unlock the Succubus, and then purchase him with tokens at the Tomb of Horrors shop and Arena shop.

Eternity Whisperer for Sacrif's shards: once unlocked, the shard can be purchased at the Valley of Treasures shop.

Melody of Decay for Goblina Sweetvoice shards. Develop your heroes to kill every node in this event.

Stormbringer for Da'Ghan shards. It requires heroes from Dragonkin faction.

Forest Guardian for Beorn shards. It requires heroes from Children of the Forest faction.

Age of Heroes, this is the time where you can get double shards in heroic mode.

Legendary Treasure, you can get triple rewards in legendary mode for equipment IX and silver. This is the time to collect all your Magic Pass rewards, and hold again the rewards after the event finish until Horn of Plenty event is active.

Horn of Plenty, this is also the time to collect all your on hold Magic Pass rewards where you get double resources in heroic mode.

Maelstrom of War, just disregard it unless you are very rich with gold.


9. Market

Chest : only buy if it is needed urgently.

Raid Chests : collect rewards from Doom Chest, Fire Chest, Celestial Chest and Dragon Treasure.

Power Boost : only buy if the discount is 50% and above, and it's really necessary.

Arcane Chests : buy 1 chest that costs about $50, or half of it. This will be very helpful in conquering the Tomb of Horrors and battles in Arena and Raids.

Resources : collect rewards from Chest of Silver and Chest of Knowledge. No need to buy anything here.

Gold : buy the rightmost Chest of Gold once in a while, it's the most economical, and use it wisely.

Magic Pass: use your token to buy either Magic Chest or Arcaine Coins. You may purchase rare heroes shard, but I never buy other stuff there.

Market : never buy with gold coins, unless there are very cheap part pieces that cost under $1. Scroll down, and buy part pieces only if the price is below 50K silver, and IX part pieces which are really necessary.

Tokens : always complete daily quests to get 1 token. Exchange per 10 tokens for heroes used in Arena / ToH / Tournament, or wait until they reach 50 or 150.

Arena: focus on buying shards based on priority, not random. Complete 1-2 heroes, then buy the next hero. Don't buy part pieces until all the shards are bought. You can buy some parts that can not be harvested in campaign.

Tomb of Horrors : prioritize 1-2 shards to be purchased. Don't buy part pieces except for the main hero and can't be harvested in the campaign.

Valley of Treasures : same as above.

Clan and Raids : the principle is the same as above. If you want it faster, you can buy tokens in the Calendar menu. It's important to be in a clan with 100% Raid V, and then Raid VI.

Clan War: prioritize buying Gloriana because it can't be harvested in the campaign, then Idril, Hotehi and so on.

Soulwarden Shop: this is where you can get Trorin and other rare heroes shards by opening Soulwarden Chest.


10. Tomb of Horrors

Always use the two strongest healers in every battle, such as Azariel - Lucky/Kharanah or Kharanah-Sacrif so that no hero dies.

Tactics for dealing with Azariel: attack the weakest hero until it reaches a critical hit and then immediately move to attack the 2nd hero to death, move to attack hero-3 to death, attack hero-1 again. Azariel is attacked last.

Tactics against Gloriana: use Abaddon or Dreverad to injure Gloriana so she can't revive dead heroes of Wild Elves faction.

Do not use range damager to fight Denaya's group.

To defeat Druids, you can use Denaya, Swamp Killer / Seven Knives, Abaddon, Azariel, and Lucky/Kharanah, or a stronger boss to knock out Cathbad and Dreverad.


11. Arena

Don't be afraid to attack heroes with higher total power, because with the right tactics you always have a chance to win.

The heroes we have are often not ideal, but nevertheless you have to keep trying to strengthen them in order to break into the top 100, and then the top 50.

Search video on YouTube how to beat certain enemies in Arena, or watch some of the videos I've made in my YouTube Channel


12. Light Campaign dan Dark Campaign

Besides continuing to strengthen the heroes needed to conquer each chapter, the key is to make friends with players who have the strongest heroes (Naja, Artus, etc.) to help in battles. Don't hesitate to send friend requests to players with total power above 2 million.


13. Tournament

Choose an opponent from the top row of the list, and pick ones with high chances of winning. When in doubt, attack those opponents later, when there is no other choice to attack.

At the beginning you may rely on Barbarian, then you need to work on Druids which is one of the most used factions in Tournament.


14. Raids

You have to participate in raids, which is very important for you and your clan. Join raids early, and learn what team of heroes are best for each of the nodes.

For regular one, there are Raids I - V, which will be chosen by clan's leader and officers, depends on your clan's power.

Here's team that you can use in Raid V (previously Raid VI) for every lanes and nodes made by Diana from Serbia Renegades (click to download).

Age of Magic Strategies and Tactics

However, as your heroes are become stronger with more Arcane Stars, you have choices of heroes you can use.

For example, I use Dragonkin Lucky for 3A upto 3F and 3I nodes, and also for Daimyo mini boss 2I node. For Swamp Killer mini boss, 3H node, still use Archons-Argen.

As mentioned earlier, there are another three special Raids that your clan can participate when the raids are avaliable.

15. Clan War

Join Clan War right from the beginning. Set timer so you won't be late. This way you can occupy nodes in lower, middle, or upper Manarin, x2 and x3 nodes (nodes with multiply factors of 2x and 3x of mana), depends on your clan's agreement with neighbours.

Place third strongest defenders at the bottom manarin, second strongest at the middle, and the strongest one at the top manarin. Try to help each other, and be observant to see which node should be prioritized to attack or defend.

Read clan's chat, whether in the game or discord or communication channel used by the clan, to find out if there is an agreement with the neighbouring clans, which dots can be attacked and which dots can't.

Always read the chat, that's why it's important to join a clan with a language we understand, even though I'd ever joined Russian and Chinese clans without knowing their languages.

In reality, deviations from agreements are common, so try to stay calm. Remember, this is just a game for fun. Don't take it too seriously.

You may want to leave a clan with weak leadership in negotiating and coordinating Clan War.


16. Resources

Two most importont resources are gold and silver, but you need also potion to "train" your heroes, and equipment parts.

Gold
Major sources of gold are: Arena that will become more significant when yo are at rank 20 or higher, Tournament at rank 10 or higher, and Magic Pass.

You will get gold when purchasing certain special offers. Suggest to buy special offer only during Horn of Plenty and Legendary Treasure Events, since you will get signficant silver as well. Gold can also be purchased in the Market and Calendar.

Golds are important to buy blue and purple energy so that you can do more campaigns to advance faster in the game.

Silver
Major sources of Silver are: Legendary Treasure and Horn of Plenty Events, Sourcerers Duel Challenge, Raids, Tomb of Horrors (not much), and Clan Wars.

Silvers are needed to upgrade your heroes to next level so you can farm stronger set of equipments.


You will always run out of gold and silver, and hence choose wisely in which caimpaigns and heroes you put your priority at. Be focus.

Those are a number of strategies and tactical tips for the Age of Magic game. Comment to share your tips and experiences.
