Dragalia Lost - Resplendent Refrain Sabnock Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on December 3rd, 2018

Dragalia Lost's latest event, Resplendent Refrain, is an event that favors light Adventurers in an all new raid dungeon. This dungeon has four teams of four face off against the mighty Sabnock, which is probably the toughest raid fight in the game yet.

Although Sabnock is tough, he isn't unbeatable. We've been testing different ways to clear this raid and have been able to clear it consistently by following a few, simple guidelines. See below about how you too can start clearing the Sabnock fight:

The toughest part of every facility event in Dragalia Lost is the pesky wave-based challenge battles. These fights push your Adventurers to the limit with tons of enemies with huge amounts of health that can take you down easily if you’re not careful.

With A Wish to the Wind, this wave-based event is as hard as ever, but it is certainly passable. Check out a few handy tips on how to beat the Ruler of the Shore mission below:

Move over, Clash of Clans. Step aside, Forge of Empires - there’s a new mobile base-builder in town, and Mad Rocket: Fog of War isn’t afraid to put its own stamp on the genre.

Published by Four Thirty Three, the game has just launched on iOS and Android off the back of a successful soft launch, during which player feedback was positive.

Mad Rocket is all about building and destruction, but it’s the Fog of War itself which really differentiates it from the competition. The game plays out on a tile-based map and enemy bases are completely shrouded in fog, which adds an extra layer of strategy.

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 29th, 2018

Element is a pretty neat sci-fi real-time strategy game that takes place on a spherical map. Although it streamlines quite a few elements of the genre to make things simpler on a touchscreen, the game can still be quite complicated and hectic.
