“Tribes Of Midgard”: Combat and Survival Guide
- The combat in “Tribes Of Midgard” is simple but can sometimes be difficult
- Always try to achieve the highest possible gear score
- Play according to the strengths of each character class
The combat in “Tribes Of Midgard” isn’t exactly deep or complicated, but it’s also not a walk in the park. Swift enemy attacks with barely telegraphs and inherent play limitations mean players will often have to trade blows with their opponents, reducing their health bars and forcing them to consume resources.
Crafting better gear and stocking up on healing items is the most obvious answer to this. However, there are more subtle ways to reduce incoming damage, increase outgoing damage, and generally survive longer, which can be especially useful in the game’s endless survival mode.
Here are some tips and tricks for fighting and surviving more effectively in “Tribes Of Midgard”.
Use mana potions
Mana potions are great for increasing DPS as they can allow players to spam their powerful abilities more often for a short period of time. These potions are typically dropped into Camp Monsters, Elite Monsters, and occasionally Jotunns. Feel free to drink one whenever a tough enemy appears and be sure to bring a powerful weapon to get the most out of the potions.
Proper blocking and dodging
In “Tribes Of Midgard” blocking and dodging are implemented as counters to very specific types of attacks. Enemy attacks that have red glow effects like werewolf jumps or shield hits cannot be blocked under normal circumstances, but are easily avoided by dodging. Likewise, basic enemy attacks cannot be dodged because they are too fast and players are likely to attack themselves, which will prevent them from reliably dodging.
Play according to class strengths
Try to play according to the main strengths of each class. Inspect each class’s passive weapon mastery skills and try to craft items based on what’s available. The same goes for elementary masteries. Additionally, each class has some sort of characteristic attached to it, such as the Warrior’s Double Hit passive or the Berserker’s Explosive Rage passive. Focusing on these abilities can help maximize overall damage and long-term survivability.
Always improve base defenses
Archers’ doors and towers can help keep Helthings at bay at night, giving players more time to explore the rest of the world. A level 3 gate can withstand huge amounts of punishment while a level 3 archer tower loaded with explosive arrows can do a quick job of cannon fodder.
