In September 2015 a new slot suddenly appeared in players’ inventory. It was a backpack. The amount of artefacts which players can put in this slot has been increasing over time and they gave new advantages. Let’s analyze all artefacts which have appeared before this time (03.01.2017).

Because I am not familiar enough with Survilurgs and FFA combats I decide to consult with #14 Yurkis [19] - the warlord of #14 Братство Стали and with EvaMari [18] - the deputy of #18 †Орден Миротворцев†. The theme is the usefulness of the artifacts in backpack in these combats and clans’ necessity to buy them. I am sorry for lack of knowledge in this theme, that’s why sometimes the questions can look unprofessional.




#1089 Писатель [14] : Are the clans purchasing artifacts in backpack for using them in clan wars? Which of them are popular in combats with Survilurgs and in FFA combats though we can’t use craft on them.

#14 Yurkis [19] : Yes, clans purchase them for CW. There is no sense to buy them for combats with Survilurgs because of dynamic balancing. If you have a wish to spend your money on it you can buy everyone which gives more parameters or a talisman hoping that you will meet the same faction. Cube of Equality was popular in FFA combats (it was created for balancing battlewise wizards). Now talismans of top factions are popular. I would also like to mention about universal artifact for backpack - Flask of Health. It is suitable for wealthy gamers.)


#1089 Писатель [14] : Can you tell me and other readers, who don’t follow the news, which factions are major now? Just to understand what talismans are bought more frequently.)

#14 Yurkis [19] : Elf, Dark elf and Wizard are in the priority. Elf and Dark Elf are the most common factions including FFA combats. Demon-chaos is more preferable, he gets good percent in battles for control, but battlewise wizard is his counter-pick. In a word, it’s jungle.


#1089 Писатель [14] : I see.) And what do you think about the last artifacts? Sandglass gives us the opportunity to take the first step, Dragon stone and Runestone give us 4 parameters. Are talismans better? Or don’t you have enough time to experiment with new artifacts in FFA combats?

#14 Yurkis [19] : Of course, talismans are better. They grant 7% resistance to damage from creatures of factions. Sandglass gives only 5% while Greater temporal signet-ring gives 15%. They have the same effect but quantity is different.


#1089 Писатель [14] : Thank you for consultation!)




#1089 Писатель [14] : First of all I want to know what artifacts in backpack are popular and used in FFA combats. And which of them are bought by clans? Many artifacts in backpack have a good boost to the parameters.

EvaMari [18] : The most popular artifact judging by the amount of fights is Sphere of Mysteries. It is rented more often than others. And it has a logical explanation – there are often two chaos characters in combats. People also take Cube of Destiny for chaos but rarer. Rushers often took Cube of Equality but now when Dragon stone appears it changes the demand on the market I think. Elf Talisman is used more frequently among other talismans. In general it’s also clear because Elf is a very numerous faction in FFA combats. Talismans are suitable when you know your opponents (e.g. combats for taxes).


#1089 Писатель [14] : How do you think what we should take in FFA combats talisman and hope that we will meet with desired faction or take another artifact in backpack?

EvaMari [18] : It depends on faction and intelligence reports. All in all you can see who is dressed. And if you see that there is a counter pick it would be better to take a talisman. Strictly speaking it is very difficult to say what is better now. There are many good variants and they are worthy. There is more diversity in FFA combats and the role of reconnaissance has increased.


#1089 Писатель [14] : Thank you for consultation.)




You can agree or disagree with the described position, put your versions about artifacts and their usefulness in comments.

Don’t forget to write what you will want to read in 2017. HWM Daily journalists gladly take on the work on interesting stuff.


I express my deep appreciation for the detailed consultation to EvaMari [18] and #14 Yurkis [19] . I also thank #1597 mr_leon [13] for an interesting idea.
