The Seigebreaker gear set is the latest defensive gear released in Mobile Strike.
It is advertised as giving 4000% Troop Defense, 3000% Attack and 5000% Troop Health.
It is Commander level 50 Gear meaning you need to have your Commander at level 50 before you can wear it and activate the benefits of the Gear
The Seigebreaker set gives Troop Attack, Troop Health and Troop Defense. The Troop Attack combined on the 7 pieces of gear alone is 2800%, the Troop Health is 4954% and the Troop Defense is 3620%
Enhancing this set in the Combat Lab will increase the Troop Attack stat.
The new Gear
Here is a breakdown of each piece of gear in the Seigebreaker set (note stats are for all troop types: regular, advanced and mercenary)
Seigebreaker Headguard (helmet) – 50% Upkeep reduction, 425% Troop Attack, 747% Troop Health, 515% Troop Defense
Seigebreaker Plated Vest (armor) – 350% Troop Attack, 593% Troop Health, 475% Troop Defense
Seigebreaker Guards (footwear) – 325% Troop Attack, 607% Troop Health, 455% Troop Defense
Seigebreaker Protector (weapon) – 500% Troop Attack, 607% Troop Health, 465% Troop Defense
Seigebreaker Guardian (accessory) – 400% Troop Attack, 800% Troop Health, 570% Troop Defense
The set bonus on this set is:
Base Bonus (5) – Troop Health (for all troop types) – 75%, Troop Attack (for all troop types) – 50%
Full Bonus (7) – Troop Health (for all troop types) – 150%, Troop Attack (for all troop types) – 100%
The Amount of set bonus you receive depends on how complete your set bonus research tree is. Skilling the base and full set bonus will also provide you with an additional boost once your research is complete. This set bonus is the same as the Winter Guardian Set previously released.
The Specialized 5 and 7 Set Bonus give Troop Defense
How to Mod
(Please note: Modding advice is correct at the time of writing this)
As the Seigebreaker set is a primarily Defensive based set you want to Mod it accordingly. How you Mod it depends on your Troop Count. If your Troop Count is Low you want to Mod it for Troop Health, if your Troop Count is High you want to Mod it for Troop Defense.
A “low” Troop Count would be anything sub 50-100 million Troops as a rough guide. after this point Defense starts becoming more important although given the strength of attack gear now its unlikely anyone effectively runs troop counts so low.
For a “low” Troop count
The Domination Health Mod set is the ideal way to Mod. The Arctic Mod set would be a secondary option. If you don’t have the required Mod set research complete then an example ideal way to Mod for pure Troop Health would be:
- Health Mod – 25% Troop Health
- Stimpack Mod – 25% Troop Health
- Sinister Mod – 25% Troop Health
- Toxic Mod (special) – 25% Troop Health
For a “High” Troop Count
The Protector Defense Mod set is the ideal way to Mod, The Winter Defense Mod set is an ideal secondary way to Mod. Both sets will work very well in the Seigebreaker gear. The Halloween Troop Defense 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
Thoughts on the Seigebreaker gear
This gear set is the new strongest gear set currently to use for Troop Defense. The only gear that rivals it for Troop Defense is the Ultimate Grand Champion 2017 gear. With Completed set bonus research, the Seigebreaker gear provides slightly more Troop Defense.
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 Troop Attack on this set should help to ensure if your using it to defend, you’ll have enough Attack to kill the incoming deployment and/or rally giving you a chance to capture the Commander of the Attacker
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 without the Set Bonus research completed, mixing this gear with selected pieces of the Champion/Grand Champion and Ultimate Grand Champion gear sets can provide a higher base Troop Defense figure than wearing the full set alone.
This gear is ideal to wear when taking rallies or when going offline both shielded and unshielded (care should be taken with the latter!).
