In the days of old, Avalon was protected by enchanted tools drawn from the order of the cosmos. Those ancient Artifacts have been long lost.
There is a new statue replacing the waterfall in your city. Clicking on her will reveal new options for stats. Since I reviewed this in beta we were provided a lot of free materials to test the new feature and as you can see below I have activated a few Avalon Artifacts. Yes, those are maxed artifacts and max stats per. On a stronghold 17.
Activating a Tome – Base Stats
Before you can craft an artifact, you get to choose a Green, Blue, or Purple Tome as your starter. These cost Holy Dust. Holy Dust is consumed forever when making a Tome. You cannot dismantle it to get your dust back.
Once you activate a Tome you can craft as many artifacts as you want from it! Think of it like selecting your building plans and then constructing. A new concept for KOA. You can craft four types of artifacts twice. So each tomb will make two artifacts.
Artifacts use Lake Gravel and Enchanted Mist when enhanced but to make the artifact you only need gravel. Stock up on that and dust to get started.
The Tome will always be with you. So choose wisely before selecting your grade.
Well, it is beta after all so of course I selected purple to start. I had enough materials to make the two max level artifacts I showed originally.
About Ancient Artifacts
Well if you’re going all in the best way is to acquire the mats via Lucky Shot. Per my sources this requires approximately 130 coins to get the gravel for purple crafting. You just have to reset the board a few times and use 1 coin every reset.
I’ve cleared one board – it went exactly in order left to right top to bottom.
Many are under the false impression that you ADD the percent of the dragon skill to the percent shown under dragon skill enhancements. Wrong. It would be nice though. KOA is not that nice to us.
Enhancement percentages only apply to the bonus percent that the dragon skill provides. Sounds confusing, I know. Especially since KOA adds other percentages together in the game. Not in this case.
First, you need to know how to find a percent of a percent. Sounds easy right, but if you multiply 60% by 42% you get 2,520%. So that isn’t correct.
In order to calculate a percentage of a percentage, you must first convert both percentages to fractions of 100, or to decimals, and multiply them.
Convert Percentages to Decimals
42 / 100 = 0.42 60 / 100 = 0.60
0.42 * 0.60 = 0.252
Convert Decimal to Percent
0.252 * 100 = 25.2%
So, this would mean that you will gain a boost of 25.2% on Infantry Health by enhancing your Level 27 Infantry Backbone I to 5 stars. But don’t forget that you still get the original 60% boost so you want to add the two together to get the total % your stats will be increased by. For this example it is 85.2%.
Many people don’t realize that you get secondary dragon stats when you upgrade them to 22 plus. Which skills you use should be based not only upon their primary stats but the secondary stats received.
As you approach the mid-fifties on your dragon level you will be able to unlock more and more secondary dragon stats. There is no “one-size-fits-all”. Select the dragon skills based upon your particular needs at the moment. Do not be afraid to reset your dragon skills a few times until you get the right combination.
Dragon Stats Chart
Since you cannot see the secondary stat until you upgrade the your dragon skills to 22 or higher, I’ve created this handy chart for reference.
