Apollo Core Set – Gem/Skill Guide

All about the Apollo Core Set. How to skill your hero properly, which gems are best to use, and which troops are best for attacking with Apollo.

Apollo Core Set Recipe, Gems and Hero Skills

PLEASE NOTE: MZ originally posted the WRONG recipe to their own blog.  It has been corrected both in the MZ blog AND in our line sharing images and pastable lists now.

The Apollo Core set is specifically made to dominate at the wonder.  It is an effective counter to the Hades Core Set.

With Apollo you’re going to be sending a mix of troops.  Likely an even 9 way mix is going to be your starting mix – and you’ll adjust as you’re countered and counter and gain experience with the set.

All commentary on this set will be geared towards wonder DEFENSE.
