Efficient Troop Training in Cyber can take a decent amount of resources. I get asked every day “How can I reduce time and resources to train troops?” Well here is a little help guide to help you maximize your troop counts while maximizing your time.
The first thing you should optimize is the Gear and Commander combination. This can mean everything in Cyber troop training. Below is an outline which troops pair up best with which gear and commanders to maximize your resources and speeds ups.
Author’s note: I do not recommend to anyone on building t1 to t3 tier troops except what you need to farm. They do not hold up in cybernetic attacks and a big waste of resources that is better used towards research and building you HQ to a higher level. So I will not cover t1-t3 Cybernetictroops in this article.
First Up is Your Commanders
When setting up your commanders max your commanders quality and enhance levels in your combat lab.
Skill your tree to max research and training. If you have training mods use in your gear sets.
I use Retro mods in my gear set up for time and resources reduction. Continue to check newer mod releases for additional boosts in this area and change as needed.
The Second Step is your Research
- Make sure you have completed all the Research available at your base level.
- The new Special Combat Research will be a big help because it includes the Troop Training Module in the tree which will greatly help training proficiency.
Then Gear is the Third Step
- The newest cybernetic troop training gear is in packs and also came out as a giftable item in some holiday packs. If you do not have this gear the older cybernetic ultimate training gear will also work as a substitute but you will not see as much reduction in time and resources.
- The addition accessories for the ultimate training gear are an add on, check old crates and see if you have a pick your own set in items. You also may be able to manufacture if you have all the required items.
- Any Ultimate Grand Conquer series helmet will work when training T5. They all carry the same reduction qualities.
So now to the actual training!!
T4 Cybernetic Troops and Traps
The Cybernetic commander with the new cybernetic training gear. You can reduce costs by approximately 25% with this commander and gear.
T5 Cybernetic Troops and Traps
The Cyberian commander with the newest cybernetic training gear pieces and the addition of the Ultimate grand conquer brace helmet. This helmet gives a 30% cost reduction of resources towards t5 troops and trap training. This is the biggest reduction in training, you can achieve almost 75% increase in the number of T5 troops you can train with the same resources and speedups.
I also use the 1 ultimate cybernetic training gas grenade to decrease resources on titan training. But I have found this reduction does not work for everyone.
When training T5 traps you may see better numbers with a mixed gear set that is different from your troop build set.
As noted here with the addition of a conquer helmet and cybernetic ultimate training gas grenade.
As always look at your individual 1 troop cost. And remember any of the conquer helmets will give you the same boost.
T6 Cybernetic Troops and Traps
The Specialist commander and the new cybernetic training gear. You will have close to 15-20% efficiency in training. Make sure you complete the skill tree module on this commander for t6 efficiency to maximize resources.
T7 and T8 Cybernetic Troops and Traps
There are no special boosts for T7s or T8 but the newest gear with the Specialist commander seems to be more convenient for training vs the same gear with Cyberian commander, only because you don’t have to swap commanders for T6, T7, T8.
Check your base for 1 troop training costs and compare. I have found the two commanders are exactly the same in T7 training.
T9, T10, and T11
There are no special boost in your commander skills to train in the higher tier troops. You will find those reductions in other areas of the game such as Dev Center boost or Lifetime Stacking Bonuses. You will still be using the newest training gear to reduce the speed ups needed and not an adjustment to the resources.
The Mech War Dimension Future Gadget Insignia also has reductions for training troops and traps when active on your memorial.
Just a reminder to players to always watch for Lifetime Stacking Boost, the Development Center, and for special Insignia that provide a reduction on speeds, resources, or both. Take advantage of these as often as you can, and participate in Special State events that provide training boost as well.
Once you decide on which troops you are going to train go to your buildings and adjust your resource production to feed the type of troop you are training.
