How to Mod
(Please note: Modding advice is correct at the time of writing this)
As the Grand Guardian 2017 gear is primarily a Defense based set, you want to Mod it for Troop Defense as a result. The current ideal way to Mod it would be the Defense Master Mod set. The Protector Defense Mod set is the ideal secondary way to Mod, Both sets will work very well in the Grand Guardian 2017 gear. The Winter Guardian Mod set would be an alternative for players than don’t have enough of the aforementioned sets. If you don’t have the required Mod set research complete then an example way to Mod for pure Troop Defense would be:
- Defense Mod -25% Troop Defense
- Tombstone Mod – 25% Troop Defense
- Eclipse Mod – 25% Troop Defense
- Sentinel Mod (special) – 25% Troop Defense
This gear set is the 2nd current strongest Troop Defense gear in Mobile Strike behind the Ultimate Grand Guardian 2017 set. As such its a solid option to be worn when offline, and by players looking to take hits on their base.
The Troop Health is high on this gear set which makes it an option for wearing if using on a tile as well as to wear when defending your base.
The 50% Upkeep reduction Helmet means that with a 50% upkeep reduction item you can remain food positive all the time whilst wearing this gear.
For players that have some but not all of the strongest Ultimate Grand Guardian 2017 set, they could mix and match with some of the pieces from the Grand Guardian and Guardian 2017 sets. You will lose the set bonus, but the increased stats on the pieces in the Ultimate Grand Guardian set can make it worth it.
