What are Equipment Bonuses?
As you advance in levels you will acquire different pieces of equipment that will provide vastly different bonuses to different Troop types, Researching, Gathering Resources, etc.
General stat increases granted by Equipment can found in your Stats tab. You can view these by navigating to your Profile (tap on your Avatar’s picture in the upper left corner of the screen) and then tap the "Stats" tab.
Keep in mind that Dragon-related Stats will appear under the Stats menu in your Dragon Pit.
You can save different Equipment Loadouts from your Profile. Select the Equipment you would like to wear by tapping the slots around your player Avatar in your Profile. Once you have everything you want for your Loadout, tap one of the numbered shield icons at the bottom of the screen and then tap the blue Save Equipment button.
When you'd like to switch to your saved Equipment Loadout simply tap the corresponding numbered shield icon in your House Information screen.
Note: If you no longer own a piece of Equipment that was equipped in your Equipment Loadout you will receive an Equipment Loadout error that states: “Loadout contains equipment you no longer own:” This error will also display the name and level of the missing Equipment.
If you would like to “save over” an already saved Equipment Loadout, tap on the numbered shield icon you would like to correspond to your new Equipment Loadout. Then change to the Equipment you would like to save. The Save Equipment button will turn blue, tap it and your Equipment Loadout will be saved.
This will allow you to save over Equipment Loadouts that produce Equipment Loadout errors.
When switching to a new Equipment Loadout it is recommended that you tap on the "Stats" Tab to confirm that your Bonuses have been applied as you want them. If your display has not updated, please restart the game to ensure your stats have updated.
Equipment Bonuses are applied when an action takes place and for the duration of that action. Equipment cannot be changed to apply Bonuses during an action.
For example: If you send a March against a Creature and switch your Equipment after the March leaves, your new Bonuses would not apply.
When Resource Gathering the game will check your Equipment Bonuses when your Troops leave for the Resource Node, when they arrive and when they leave. If you switch Equipment Loadouts during Resource Gathering at any point there is a possibility that the amount of Resources your Troops will return with will differ from what was originally projected. (See also: My Gathering March returned with fewer Resources than expected)
Occasionally you may see that your Bonuses are not changing when equipping a saved Equipment Loadout. This is generally caused by a delay in the game display. To resolve this issue please close and restart the game.
