Kobold Tribes is a PvP/Survival/Gathering type of game that forces its players to think strategically and to work as a team to keep them alive and well. Straying far off from agroup could mean certain death if you get stranded , Or easily ambushed by the opposing team.
You start off with your team in either in the top left side of the map ,if you’re the northern tribe. Or the bottom right side of the map if you the southern tribe.
A.How to play
To start off you’ll want to make sure you’ve already started gathering by right clicking resources , you should start communicating to you teamates about what you will bring to the team , if the other players don’t, remind them to call out what they will do. Having 5 people cooking wont be very efficent when trying to survive the dangerous wilderness. You, and your team will have to gather from a large variety of supplies to survive conditions from freezeing nights , to zombie infested assaults. You must eat food , make fires , build infastructure , And build weapons and armor for defense. But also to defeat the enemy team and win the game.
B. The weather
The weather can be a game changing factor , I’ve seen as many as 4 people dieing because they were stranded without a fire. The game changes from night to day every 2 min. Every night the temperature drops , causing your warmth to go down. Once your warmth drops to 0 . Your health will slowly begin to drop , also the chill of night effects you , allowing you only to walk.On top of that, the Dire wolves come out at night . If you don’t have a way to ward off the wolves , say with a fire , or a lantern they will slowly come at you, then gradually proceed into attacking in packs.. So if it is easy to get stranded at night and die if you don’t have a fire, or a lantern to keep yourself warm, and safe.
You need to also make sure that you have food on you at all times . once you begin to get hungry you will start starving to death. Eating cooked food , is always more benifitial from eating the food raw. Different types of food recover a different amounts of health and hunger.
Stamina in kobold tribes is used for Running and mineing , as such , it can only be depleated by either running or mining. When you run out of stamina you will be knocked unconscience for 7.5 seconds . As you can probably tell . Running out of stamia mid-fight can be a death defying fight changer. You want to make sure you keep an eye on you stamia meter so you don’t get knocked out.
E. Physique / Wit
These are your two main attributes. Your physique includes your Strength: Increases Attack Dmg. With a 1:1 ratio
Dexterity: Increases stamina recovery rate 1:1 , Attack speed increase, and move speed increase. 1: 0.5
Endurance: Increases maximum life 1:10 , and also reduces stamina loss 1:1
Your Wit is in a different category and includes 2 sub categories
Intelligence: Increased experience 1: .5 , Increased energy 1:4 , Increased energy recovery rate 1: .05
Wilpower: Increases spell power 1:1 , and slower rate of needing to eat 1: .6
2. How to Win
To win the game , one tribe must complete be wiped out ,while at least 1 player on the other team but stay standing. You must work as your team to set up traps , and or ambush enemys that are straying off too far from the group. Also completeing the quest and getting the rewards for your team can also put you team into a higher , better , and more secure position for taking up more of the forest or fowarding attacking positions.If you’re lucky , you wont even have to fight the enemy team . They’ll die from natural causes like starvation , or freezing , maybe even by wolves.
Every level you gain 5 skill points you can put into any tree you want.
A. Forestry: Increases Dmg to trees , Gives warmth and stamia upon felling a tree , Subtracts seconds from plant tree completions , and subtracts seconds from the cooldown
B. Mining: Increased Mining speed , increased chance on finding rare minerals, Also increase amount of mineral nodes found every morning.
C. Cooking: Increased amount of health and hunger from food , Increased cooking speed , Increased campfire duration.
D. Foraging: Increased damage to animals , Increased gathering speed , Spots bushes in the morning for harvesting , increased radius for spotting smoke.
E. Apprenticeship: Increased crafting speed, added stamina upon crafting something, Increased durability restored to nearby buildings, Increased buildings armor.
Communicating to your team can be your greatest weapon , or you biggest flaw. A talking team will always be greater than a silent one. Keep the communication active between you team, don’t automatically assume everyone knows what they are doing , if you need to be a leader to tell your teamates what your group needs. Then try for it. Your team is needed t o complete the solo quest safetly , if you try to go alone , you’ll be going on a suicide mission. Keep a tight small vilage for maximum efficiency .
Murloc Chieftien – During the murloc chieftein even , a big murloc is placed randomly along the center of the map ( so it even for both sides) , Your teams goal is to kill the murloc before the enemy team. If no team within 3 minutes kill the chief , he we wander off into another forest , looking for someone who will challenge him. Killing the chief offers a random reward of supplies and well as his doom hammer ( See items section ).
Inside the kobold tribe forest, the goblin chests event spawns a random number of chest in a cluster randomly along the map , this forces the players to go out of their way to retreive some vital supplies for the team. If both teams refuse to go for the chest , they will despawn after a while. A special shield can be found inside these chest( see items section)
The fisherman shipment quest presents a lone fisherman on one side of the forest and his lost shipment of crab, The first person to bring the crab too him gets a special reward( See items section) as well as some resources. Only 1 person can bring the shipment. Carrying the shipment of crab debuffs you so you can only walk as long as your holding the shipment, Causing yo uto be a high value target, because you are moving so slow its best to bring support. This highrisk/highreward quest can put a team very ahead of another. Make sure to deny the enemy of delivering the shipment if possible.
Grandmaster cryn has issued a competetion , who ever plants the most trees win. If the amount of trees is a tie between the north and the south tribes the tribe who planted the last tree will be the victor , Wining the tree competition will give the winning team +5 skill points into everyones forestry skill tree.
The battle arena event gives you the option of putting the best warrior of your tribe in a battle to the death with the opposing tribes best warrior. Each team will receive a circle on the floor in which a play must step in to enter for the competition. If neither team sends a player into the que , nothing will happen , if only 1 team enters the que to fight , they will be awarded gold for their intiative. With that being said , if an opposing player joins the que , you want to make sure that you don’t let them get the free gold , it could be a bluff. 1 person might enter the que at the very end to try to sneak in some extra gold. Always send a player into the fray. If 2 players enter the arena. The winnier will receive the dead kobolds inventory and a special chestpiece ( See items section)
The kobold chefs event places a hungry cook randomly in a forest , he ask both teams to bring him 3 special foods ( See food section) , The first team to get all 3 dishes to him gets resources and a special rewards ( See Item section)
The zombie event really puts a team and their resources to the ultimate test , during this long a cold night zombies spawn from all directions and come to attack your tribe , If a building is closer to a zombie , the zombies will start attacking buildings instead. Many zombies during this night appear , if you are not with your team you will most likley permish from being overunned. They cannont be warded away from you , and being hit by a zombie slows you down. Killing zombies also gives you a chance to retreive special items from them ( See items section). It is harder for the infested to overunn you when you have more people killing them as they are coming , so be sure to stay near teamates , and don’t get cornered.
