epic-war-tipsToday’s free flash game of the day award went to Epic War 3, an amazing mix of role playing elements, collectible card game and tactics. The game is incredibly challenging, so I have decided to create a small tips and tricks feature to help those who keep getting their arse kicked in the game. I am aware that many other tactics could be applied in Epic War 3, this is just my way of playing – and I did win after a long time. Check out the Epic War 3 tips and tricks below:

1. I suggest you start the game with Rembrant the Bloody, since he has a really nice and powerful starting deck.
2. It would be wise to eliminate players one by one. Start with the one to the right, then continue to the left.
3. Remember to always upgrade your cards! It would be good to have a strategy, since prices will get very high. I would recommend upgrading the green creatures first, since they are fast and only take a few seconds to be generated. Improving the meteor next is your priority, then continue to upgrade the green creatures alongside the archers. Once you have them to level 3, they should posses enough power until the later stages of the game.
4. Always protect your archers! Keep them way behind the melee forces and make sure they’re always protected. They are your most powerful weapon!
5. Use the skill cards as soon as possible. Try aiming at the enemies that wait outside the castle – in Epic War 3, the AI tends to stack up the most powerful forces there, but if you hit them, they will charge. If you don’t, you’re lost.
6. It would be best if you played all the battles yourself, the computer might lose some for you.
7. The most dangerous, in my opinion, enemy troops, are the purple spell casters (those who send waves of fire at you). They usually keep their distance, and you can only kill them with the skill cards. Make sure you do so as soon as they appear, otherwise they might cost you the battle. I have also noticed that sometimes they tend to remain hidden if your forces are already charging the enemy castle, so it would be wise to retreat a bit (archers first!) then return once they are killed. Once my entire fight was lost because I didn’t do so!
8. Save often, preferably after each fight. In the later stages of the game, it will be very time consuming to end a battle.
9. Do not charge as soon as the battle starts! Wait for some seconds to get your first basic troops (goblins and zombies) and send then close to the end of the first screen. Use the skill cards until you have more troops, arrange them accordingly (archers in the back, hero in between to hit and run, melee in front) and charge as fast as possible. After the AI sends its first wave, it will last a while until they will come back again. Until then, you will have taken at least half of the castle’s health and you will be able to hit them hard with the skill cards.
10. Make sure to always click on the units and order them where to go. If one unit dies, it will not come to battle or “remember” its last placement. Instead, it will stay in front of the castle. But you will always need them at the other end, so keep clicking and ordering them to move where they should be.
11. Be patient. If it somehow happens for you to lose a battle, it’s not the end of the world. You still get some experience and money, and keep going!

Now, if you are interested, I’m showing you my deck halfway through the game. It is a really, really powerful deck and I have lost no battles with it!

Unit cards used: Goblin Soldiers (Maximum level), Centaur Archer (level 4), Zombies (maximum level), Magic Cannon (level 3), Phantom Armor (level 3) and Black Knight (level 4).
Skill Cards Used: Comet Shot (level 4), Rain of arrows (level 3), Meteor strike (level 2).


  1. It’s funny because I selected Rembrant too, I liked the nice blend of soldiers he had. Also, how do you get more cards? And I have the same ones as you…

    Units: Goblin (5), Centaur Archer (5), Zombie (5), Magic Cannon (5), Phantom (5), Knight (5)

    Skills: Comet (4), Arrows (3), Meteor (4)

    I’ve only used auto once and it was on defense and I won. Also, I only need 2 more castles to have control of the whole land. And I’m on Turn 12.

  2. i stradegy I use is send dragon riders out mabee one of those purple ones while your remaining creatures grow your dragon riders are tearing them apart

  3. invinciblity u get from that dark blue guy at medium level. best army is probably
    Tanks: Dragon Riders and Yeti
    Ranged: Mermaid, Succubi (purple guys), centaurs and cannons all at level 5
    u can beat cave of trials up to level 4 with this combination
    skill cards: Phoenix, rain of arrows, heal, meteor (u can add more)

    u can also use a hobbit spam army :D
    u just put in the people with highest population and u can demolish a castle in 10 seconds :O
    i beat the game on the second time with a hobbit army

  4. i beat the first 4 cave of trials with these cards. Units: Dragon Riders, yeti, black knights, witches, magic cannons and succubes. Skills: Pheonix strike, anethes protection, the healing one, zeus wrath, double damage and rain of arrows. i just kept sendin units forward. do cave of trial 5 first as u get the zeus wrath card from completing it. for that i used mermaids, witches, centuer achers, cannons, black knights and succubes, for spells use pheonix strike and other area spells like lightning. also use rain of arrows.

  5. ok i have to tell you zombies arent good and neither are goblins try to eliminate them from your deck once you get far enough. here is my team: tuarus maxed, centaur archers maxed, black knight maxed, frost giant maxed, magic cannons maxed, and phantom armors maxed. a also like like succubus, witches and mermaids.
    lightning and ice do massive damage when upgraded and can kill units instantaniously, so use thouse when they call the war horn to kill that entire wave. also you can use the athenas protection and hercules strength when by the castle to help[ destroy it.

  6. guys, if you need a good deck then I recommend mine (I beat all caves of trial with this): all ranged units max out level (5) and yeti (5) and earth dragon (5) with spells: fire ball, thunder, arrow rain, hercules strength and the ice thingy all max out level

  7. sorry, I meant fire titan, not earth dragon and I recommend the green guy as a hero because he has the most mana at the highest level. For cave 4, watch for the 3 or 4 titans so back up your own titan with something like hercules strength cause fire titan lands the most hits then you should win. For cave 5, watchout for the invincible grunt cause it one it kills you, just stun it the whole time andyou shuold win.

  8. By far, my best deck. (Titan-free)

    1)Fire Succubus (max)
    2)Goblin Soldier (max) or you could use the Bomber (max)
    3)Dragon Rider (max)
    4)Frost Giant (Lvl 3 but max for peak performance)
    5)Magic Cannon (max)
    6)Mermaid (max)

    1)Healing Wave(Lvl 4 but max for peak performance)
    2)Comet Shoot(max) BEAST!!!
    3)Hercule’s Strength (Lvl 4 but max for peak performance)

    Once you have all these, next things you should try to equip is the Phoenix Strike and Freeze Trap skills if you have enough mana. But to start the level, simply keep sending bombers(if you’re using them) one after another until you build up enough troops. If you’re using goblins, send Dragon Rider’s instead. Keep using the Comet Shoot until you build up around 20-25 goblins. By then, you should have enough of every troop. Use the Comet Shoot again and hit the Hero on the opponent’s side and he will charge. Your Dragon Riders will take him out with ease. When the hero is down, send all your troops forward and commence battle with the castle. Listen for the horn, that’ll initiate another wave coming from the enemy. Shoot the Comet right in front of the castle where they spawn once you hear it. If you have, use the Freeze Trap as well. If you are getting backed up, use the Phoenix Strike and he will wipe the screen clean (again, if you are using it) then continue to charge. Continue this and the rest of the game is cake. Goblins are really good in numbers, they hit 180-200 average. With around 30 of them, do the math. That can wipe out the hero. The only thing bad about them is that they are really weak health wise. With the Hercule’s Strength, they are really strong and I tend to use them a lot. Happy gaming!
