Stellaris: How to Declare War on Overlord

If you’ve been a vassal of an Overlord, you can choose to declare war in order to break free from its rule. If you win, you will then become an independent subject.




Warfare is a recurring theme in Stellaris. In fact, as long as there’s an empire that’s not a Fanatic Pacifist, war will inevitably break out. In the case of a vassal and an Overlord, you can declare war if you want to break free from its rule and act as an independent subject.

Let’s find out how you can do this.

How to Declare War on Overlord in Stellaris

If you have been a vassal for an Overlord for quite some time and want to break free, then you have to option to Request Independence via the Diplomacy screen. However, if you haven’t been with the Overlord for long, then your request for independence won’t be granted.

Specifically, you’ll need high Acceptance for the request to be granted, and since there’s a base reduction of 50 Acceptance, that’s just not possible.

It’s in this case that you’ll have the option to declare war. To start a war, you’ll need a Casus Belli, and in this case, that would be Independence. To declare it, you need to be a subject of an Overlord and should not be in a federation of the same Overlord.

Outcomes of a War

After you have declared war on your Overlord, the outcome of the war can go either way:

  • Surrender – This means that the wargoal of the winning side is secured, and if you lose, you’ll remain as a vassal of the said Overlord.
  • Status Quo – This means that the war has come to a point where the battle is at a stalemate or all wargoals have already been achieved even before a major battle takes place. Also, both sides will have to agree to stop the war.

In the event that you win the war, you’ll then become independent and your Overlord will lose all claims on your systems.

Terraria: How to Get Hand of Creation Accessory in 1.4.4

The Hand of Creation is a useful item that lets you mine, build and harvest faster in the game.





It looks like the game developers of Terraria have listened to all our requests on this one. The latest Labor of Love Content in Terraria 1.4.4 allows players to mine 25% faster, increase building speed, expand the radius for us to pick up harvested materials and even give us an extra reach for us to pick up things.

That’s the Hand of Creation for you. A handy tool (pardon the pun) and must-have equipment especially for players who enjoy the creative side of Terraria.

Like in real life, however, obtaining something as good as this item will require you a bit of effort. Never fear though, we’ve got you covered as we guide you on how to get the Hand of Creation in Terraria 1.4.4.

How to get the Hand of Creation Accessory in Terraria 1.4.4

There are 2 sets of materials you need to collect in order for you to Craft the Hand of Creation. Four of these items are being sold by the Travelling Merchant and the next set of items can be found in Chests across the map areas.

To keep things simple, we will first start with the first set of materials that can be purchased at the Travelling Merchant.

These are the Brick Layer, portable cement mixer, extended grip and paint Sprayer. Each item has a specific use when used individually.

Combine the four items to create the Architect’s Gizmo

Crafting these four items will give you the Architects Gizmo which is a single item that does all three items combined.

Search for the next set of items on the map

By now, you already have the Architect’s Gizmo which is a handy tool in itself. What we are going to do next is to upgrade that gadget further into the Hand of Creation. To do this, you will have to look for three more items.

These items are the ancient chisel, treasure magnet and stepping stool. The ancient chisel is dropped randomly at underground desert Chests, the treasure magnet can be found on shadow Chests or lock boxes while the step stool can be found on surface Chests or can be purchased from the Skeleton Merchant.

Combine these items to create the Hand of Creation

Once you have the next set of items, combine them on your workbench to get the Hand of Creation accessory. This accessory is a combination of seven different accessories with seven specific moves or boosts to make your exploration and building a lot more efficient and less of a hassle.
