Sometimes I see the icons for different unit types on Grand Conquests maps... What's that about?
Well, if a map is marked with the icon for a certain unit type, it means that type will get a boost.
Oh, I see! So, for example, if the map has the horse icon on it, that means my cavalry units will be stronger than usual!
I don't think that's the technical name for it, but yes, the horse icon! Anyway, you can also get boosts for infantry units, flying units, armored units, and so on.
And I guess that means I can score big if I prepare some custom teams to take advantage of these boosts, like a team built around armored units or a team built around flying units!
You beat me to it! I definitely recommend building some teams that have several of a specific unit type, including Heroes that you borrow from friends.
Some Tips for Grand Conquests
There's a lot to think about in Grand Conquests, so you might feel a little overwhelmed at first. Here are a few tips that might help you to find your feet.
Attack Advantageous Areas
First, you should aim to fight in areas that are marked with the "Try this!" icon. To further contribute to your army's success, aim to seize adjacent areas too. And if you find a map that you can handle easily, you can keep fighting there to help ensure that your army claims it.
Build Teams to Take Advantage of Unit Effects Applied to Areas
Areas marked with a unit type icon will provide boosts to the corresponding unit type. Prepare cavalry teams, armored teams, and so on ahead of time.
Get Help from Strong Friends
In Grand Conquests, you can add your friends' Heroes to your teams. If your friends have 5★ merged Heroes or other powerful Heroes you can take advantage of, make sure you get them on your team!
Use Conquest Lances for Battles You Can't Afford to Lose
Conquest Lances will restore your Grand Conquests stamina, and it's important to use them when they'll give you the most value. Some ideal times to use them are when you're just inches away from being able to knock out your rivals, when you want to widen the gap close to the end of a round, or when you're short on time and you want to get a lot done at once. Holding onto Conquest Lances for a rainy day might result in a situation where you have more than you can actually use, so don't hesitate to make use of them!
