I'm on my first run through of Warzone Idle and I've got as far as Triskelion.

I was wondering, is it meant to be so hard and slow?


I went through the previous levels (Netherlands, China, Afro-Eurasia Gargantuan) in 4-6 days each and I've also managed to finish a few of the hardened levels like Hardened Old Town which gives more AP than Triselion in less than a week. But I'm 7 days into Triskelion and things are still looking pretty slow!

So a few questions...

- Is something weird going on or is this level supposed to take much longer?
- Any tips for how to speed things up or whether there are any particular secrets to Triskelion?
- Are the two final levels before ascension (United States and Europe Huge) going to be like this as well?

If it's relevant, I've got the following Artifacts and powers:
Epic - Time Warp, Alloy Values, Supercharge Army Camp, Triple strike, Army Camp boost
Rare - Market Raid, Merc discount, Army Cache boost
Maxed out powers - Joint strike, Alloy sell values, Merc discount, Increased craft speed
Other interesting powers - Army camp production +200%, Additional mercs +80%

Another Idler's life ruined by the mighty Trisk.

Yes. It is even harder than the next Europe Huge level.
Once, I got great advice from the global chat "Skip Trisk", I always followed the advice and never regretted.

Grayson, Before you tackle Trisk, 1. Get the epic triple strike by completing Hardened CCC. (done) 2. Turn it into Legendary (this returns 60% armies from 1 territory instead of costing 20%). 3. Increase alloy values to legendary. 4. Max out additional mercs.

Then, and only then, you should be able to finish trisk in 3-4 days. Still think about using 1 IM on the biggest camp.

Or, if you venture into it sooner (as you did), think about using super powered Inspire Mercs on the biggest camp. Of course, you will still need to use TS on that stacked territory on the far left in the yellow section.

As an added hint, those circular areas are hard but use the spokes to attack the arcs from both sides to use JS on the largest army in each section. Even with this, its still a grind

After several goes on this and hard version, +I'm just about to super ascension for 1st time with 4 legendary artifacts. I'd say follow the excellent advice given by others and just skip

Is there any amount of AP spending plus artifacts that make Trisk as easy as other levels.
As in being able to go without a break except to bump up hospitals.

I guess, there is such option, but it resides in the areas of "having sets of insane artifacts and being deep into phase 4". At this point, you are well better farming HEX for AP, rather than doing Trisk or any other regular level for pure AP goals.

I am thinking in terms of achievement hunting actually, not AP hunting.
Or just fecal matter and giggles.

You're going to have to throw away at least one legendary if you do so. Which may be the right call for you, but you should be aware that will happen. Or you could sandbag for another 75 days (assuming you've maxed faster digging, have taken hardened China, and use a legendary Time Warp as soon as possible) to get the fifth legendary to make an insane.

If you're stubborn like me and determined to complete Triskelion, be advised it took me a month first time.

There are easier ways to earn comparable AP, but efficiency needn't be a god we must worship. Other considerations and emotions can be determinative, whatever floats your boat is best.

Oh wow - it turns out that the superpowered Inspire Mercs was the trick!

I hadn't actually realised how powerful it would be. I thought that 10x the power would give me all of the mercenaries from my choice of 10 camps rather than giving me 10x the mercenaries from one camp.

With +80% Mercs, the biggest mercenary camp was 179 billion, so using Inspire Mercs turned that into 1.79T. That was more than enough to tear through the rest of the level, and I didn't even have to wait for my artefacts to recharge to use TS on the massive territory you mentioned.

So I'm out of Inspire Merc powers, but I haven't really needed them anywhere else and now Trisk is in my rear view mirror. Completed in 7 days 14 hours!

10X mercs on the right camp makes short work of most levels if not all of them. Could just run atuo conq and not worry about joint strike even.

As money/ tech upgrades are often hard to come by in Trisk/ H Trisk, I'll often burn up a handful of superpower supercharge mines (with ore ad bonus and mine boost equipped) to get my ore, then drop a strategic market raid or two (make sure you have all the recipes and calculated ore for max efficiency there).

also consider using more than usual SAC's to bump your clan requests and maybe a supercharge free cash if you have any extras.

I usually skip Trisk on early runs and will sometimes revisit it for a little extra AP if all other lvls are done or I'm waiting for digs or something. But I have pretty high end artifacts which makes it less painful. You've got to have a decent TS or QS. and with clan reward for artifact cooldown and insane TW, you can hit like 6-10 of the big territories with the stikes to save your armies.
