With the brand new Gladiator Heroes update come shiny new bonuses. Read on to find out all about the exciting new orb bonuses that come from the Orb Bonuses tab in your Clan Building.
All things shiny and full of bonuses
Orbs can be found from chests after successful combat or the Merchant and are usually stored in the Sculptor to make bonuses for your city.
When you have too many orbs in the Sculptor that you aren’t using, you can donate them to your fellow clan members for them to create specific Clan Building orb bonuses just for them.
The only orbs that can be used for these special time-limited bonuses are those donated to you by the clan and that are stored in the Clan Building.
These exciting bonuses are the same type as those created by statues from the Sculptor, however they are time specific and only one can be active at a time. These shiny bonuses are as follows:
- Green Vulcan orbs grant defensive bonuses during combat for a limited time
- Orange Mars orbs grant offensive bonuses during combat for a limited time
- Blue Maia orbs increase production for a limited time
- Pink Juno orbs reduce healing and training times for 24 hours
Feeling generous = donate
You can now donate orbs from your Sculptor to your fellow clan members if you are feeling particularly generous.
The orbs you donate to clan members will be stored in their Clan Building and can only be used for their time-limited bonuses that depend on their orb amount and Clan Building level.
The only orbs that you can donate are those from your Sculptor and therefore you cannot donate orbs previously donated to you that are stored in the Clan Building.
Ask thy neighbour
Running low on orbs in the Clan Building and want to take advantage of these exciting new bonuses?
You can now ask your clan members to donate their Sculptor orbs for you to use in the Clan Building.
You can request orbs from your fellow clan members through your Orb Bonus tab in the Clan Building which will send a donation request message to the clan chat. You then have to simply wait and see how generous your fellow clan members are feeling.
Storage of Orbs:
The total number of orbs you can store in the Clan Building is unique to your account and relates to the upgrade level of your own Clan Building.
Upgrading your Clan Building will thus increase your storage for orbs in the building.
Each type of orb will take up a different amount of storage and therefore contributes a different amount to the bonuses. The amount that they are worth is as follows:
- Small orbs = 1
- Medium orbs = 3
- Large orbs = 5
It’s safe to say that requesting orbs from your clan members may not always be successful and that you obviously won’t be donating orbs to everyone who asks. This is where you need to take strategy into consideration.
Now that you can visit your fellow clan members’ cities, which we outlined in another blog post, you can suss out who deserves your sparkling orbs and change up your tactics so you look more appealing to receive donations.
Training and healing all your gladiators, upgrading all your buildings to their maximum level, and taking full advantage of the Sculptor are some of the ways you can strategise your own city and evaluate your clan members.
So it’s time to save up your orbs, release your generosity and take full advantage of the glimmering bonuses that the Clan Building has to offer.
