Equipment in Vikings War of Clans

Obtain materials

You need materials in order to craft equipment. You can craft pieces of equipment in the Forge, a special building in the Town where Viking blacksmiths work without cease. In Vikings: War of Clans, materials can be obtained in different ways. Here are some of them:

  • Yielding resources in locations on the Town Map
  • Attacking Invaders
  • Completing Tasks

Remember that the more damage you inflict on an Invader, the more valuable the reward you’ll get!

Vikings’ materials, equipment, gems, and runes can be of different qualities:

  • Simple
  • Usual
  • Unusual
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary

It’s important to keep in mind that the better the quality, the higher the bonus. In Vikings, Legendary equipment gives maximum bonuses. To craft this kind of equipment, you will need materials of the highest quality, which you can gain by combining the identical materials of a lower quality.

Craft equipment

There are 4 kinds of equipment in Vikings: War of Clans: standard, special, Invaders’ equipment, and Shamans’ equipment.

To craft a particular piece of equipment, you need to know in advance which materials or components you will need. For example, in Vikings, Invaders’ materials can be obtained by attacking Invaders, while crafting Shamans’ equipment will require some pieces of Hero’s and Shamans’ equipment as components.

In order to craft special equipment in the Forge, you will first need to study the corresponding Draft in the Arms Guild of your Clan Stronghold. Only Clan Elders or the Chief can start the studying process, as they are the most experienced Vikings. Equipment of this kind gives great bonuses to the military characteristics of your warriors, the economic stats of your Town, and much more.

No one can stop brave Vikings when their goal is to get the best equipment in the world of Vikings: War of Clans. Special equipment will help you and your Hero to conquer new lands!

Increase equipment bonuses with gems and runes

For Vikings, runes have a special meaning, and gems adorn the best warriors’ armor. Don’t miss the chance of gaining an advantage, as in Vikings: War of Clans, runes and gems give additional bonuses. You can inlay pieces of equipment with gems and runes, and if needed, you can remove them from equipment using special items: Diamond Knives and Runic Knives.

Upgrade equipment

Another way of increasing the bonuses from equipment is by upgrading pieces of Legendary equipment. In the Stock tab of the Forge, you’ll find the pieces of equipment that are available to be upgraded. They are marked with special symbols.

In the window for upgrading equipment, you will see the components required (which will be consumed in the upgrade process) and the percentage chance that the upgrade will be successful. This probability depends on the upgrade level: the higher the level, the lower the chance of success. You can get the chance closer to 100% by using the Helheim Fire item, which you can obtain in the Catacombs of Helheim.

Use bonuses from your equipment to destroy enemies fearlessly, as willed by the ancient Vikings. Gems, runes, and equipment will endow you with incredible power that will help you become the mightiest Jarl and conquer the North!
