Zeus Core Set – Gem/Skill Guide

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

Zeus Core Set Recipe, Gems and Hero Skills

The Zeus core set is high infantry attack, high defense debuff.

When attacking with Zeus, you ALWAYS send Infantry Troops, as all boosts are tuned to improve infantry attack stats.

Please note: All Skills/Gems listed below are for hitting Strongholds with their hero at home.  The heroless configuration can be found here.
