Babylon’s Fall: Equipment and Itemization Guide

One of the most important aspects in every RPG is equipment, and with Babylon’s Fall allowing you to use four different weapons at once, it’s safe to say the game’s not trying to change this fact.

Equipment is the key to building the character you want in Babylon’s Fall. Of course, this is nothing new in the RPG genre, so  Babylon’s Fall puts its own spin on this system.

So, in this guide, we’ll explain how the equipment works in this particular title.

Every piece of equipment in the game has its statistics. These can be seen under the weapons icon when selecting it from your inventory.

The big number on the top is the item’s “power level”, which basically tells you its general strength – weapons with lower power levels will get less useful as the game progresses. Underneath, a set of statistics describes how the item fares in comparison to other pieces.

Weapon Statistics

Every weapon has five statistics:

Damage – determines how much damage points each hit will cause

Critical – the higher this stat is, the bigger chance of getting a powerful, critical attack, which will deal even more damage

Impact – This statistic determines the knockback enemies will sustain with each hit, as long as a chance of knocking an enemy down. The higher the number, the bigger chance you have at staggering the enemy with your attacks

Speed – this determines how short the gap is between each strike

Spirit Siphon (not present in shields) – The higher this stat is, the more Spirit Points each attack will replenish

Block (shields only) – This stat determines how much damage will the shield absorb

How to Determine Which Weapon is The Best

Although you might be tempted to simply choose the weapon with the highest damage output, in most cases what you really want to look for is the best damage per second, which can be determined by comparing the speed and damage stats.

Other stats usually come into play when you have a certain playstyle – spirit siphoning is useful if you’re mainly planning to use Dynamis Abilities, and Impact pairs good with slow, high-damage weapons.

Armor Statistics

Armor has its own set of statistics:

Vitality – determines how much hp the were will have when wearing the armor

Stability – used to determine your resistance to knockback and the speed at which you’re going to get up after getting knocked down

Spirit Regen – Determines how fast your Spirit Points will regenerate

Spirit – determines the amount of spirit points the wearer has

Your armor choice is much more dependent on your playstyle in this game than your weapon choice. Since there are no “armor” statistics, these functionally work more like specific builds than items.

Spirit and Spirit Regen will be the most important for those playing with either fast characters or characters dependent on the Dynamis Abilities. Vitality is always good to have, while stability is the most useful when playing with a slow character that deals a lot of damage.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

total war three kingdoms court guide

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!

And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
