Enemy Troop Debuffs is one of the many “not so straightforward” things in the game. In the beginning stages of playing World War Rising, I think it is safe to say that figuring out how to defend or how to attack is pretty simple. Most things in the earlier stages of the game are pretty straightforward. However, as the game progresses, many things start to overlap. You have to pay a lot more attention to small details and there is a lot more testing that needs to be done to know exactly how things work.
In this article, I will be going over Enemy Troop Debuffs, how you can grow these stats on your base, and what types of research you can invest to increase these bonuses.
Where can I find my enemy troop debuffs?
You can find your current enemy troop debuff stats by going to your profile within your base and clicking on “Boosts”. This will bring up a list of all of your base boosts and the percentage of each one. Enemy Troop Debuffs will be the 4th section down.
What are the enemy troop debuffs and what do they do?
Whether the name of the game is attack or defense, enemy troop debuffs will benefit you greatly. Most of these boosts have the ability to help you defend and attack, so they are just as valuable in the game as something like troop attack, troop health, and troop armor. There are several similarities in the way they work, so we will go over some of the key differences between each one and what type of playstyle they work the best with.
Counter intelligence is used best for defending purposes. It works to counter the attack of regular troops, however, most mercenary troops are not affected by this boost. There are several things you can do to increase your stats of this particular boost. As far as research goes, there are counter intelligence boosts in all of the defense research sections, along with Stalwart, Excursion, and Champion. You can also upgrade your Radar Station building to receive a higher percentage of counter intelligence on your base.
Armor-piercing is used best for both attack and defense purposes. This boost works by reducing a flat-rate amount of armor your enemy has. You can increase the percentage of armor-piercing your base has by doing research in all of the combat sections, along with Deployment, Explorer, Excursion, Champion, and Blitz. You can also upgrade several different buildings to receive a higher percentage of armor-piercing. Those buildings include the Vehicle Hangar, Master Intel Agency, and Wall.
Armor Shredding is best used for both attack and defense purposes. Armor Shredding and armor-piercing are very similar in the way they work. Armor shredding also reduces the amount of armor being used by your enemy, however, it takes a percentage off of the TOTAL amount of armor your enemy has. You can find this boost located on Xira’s skill and mastery tree and also on Aria’s skill tree as well.
Enemy Health Reduction
Enemy Health Reduction is best used for both attack and defense purposes. It works to reduce the amount of health your enemy has. You can increase the percentage of this boost by doing research in lv 80, lv 90, and lv 100 Combat research, along with Explorer, Excursion, Champion, and Blitz. The buildings you can upgrade for additional boosts in enemy health reduction are the Vehicle Hangar, Master Intel Agency, and Wall.
Attack Deflection is used best for both attack and defense purposes. This boost reduces the amount of attack your enemy has. You can increase your attack deflection stats by doing research in the lv 80, lv 90, and lv 100 Defense Research sections, along with Explorer, Stalwart, Excursion, Champion, and Blitz. The buildings you can upgrade for additional boosts are the Vehicle Hangar, Master Intel Agency, and Wall.
Anti-Squad Member Boosts
I decided to combine the anti-squad member boosts for this section because they work exactly the same as the other enemy troop debuffs, only they work against your enemy’s squad member instead of their troops or base. Anti-squad member attack deflection reduces the amount of attack the enemy’s squad member has. Anti-squad member armor-piercing reduces the amount of armor the enemy’s squad member has. And anti-squad member health reduction reduces the amount of health the enemy squad has. These enemy troop debuffs are good to use for attack or defense purposes, and they can be increased by doing lv 100 Defense research, along with Expedition, and Stalwart. You can also upgrade the Radar Station to increase anti-squad boosts.
The kill shot is a brand new enemy troop debuff that was just released with our newest hero, Aria. It is best used for attack purposes and it works to eliminate a portion of your enemy’s troops that would have been hospitalized otherwise. The only place you can find this boost as of right now is on Aria’s skill tree.
Are there more places to find these boosts?
Besides working on upgrading the buildings on your base, or doing research, there are a few other ways you can increase these boosts. I find that the boosts that come from doing research and construction are probably the most important, however, you can get better results by doing a number of things. Some of the things that contribute to your enemy troop debuffs are listed below. I have also listed what I consider to be temporary stats.
- Hero mastery skills
- Hero skills (must be activated)
- Gear that is on the activated hero
- Emblems on the gear
- Lifetime boosts from buying packs/winning events
- Science Academy
- Contraband Gear
- Activated Boosts
Now that you understand how each of these boosts works, hopefully, you can use them to your advantage and get a better idea of what your strengths and weaknesses are as a player. No matter what your playstyle is, you can never go wrong with becoming more aware of your stats, especially when it comes to enemy troop debuffs.
