IMPORTANT UPDATE

***************************

As many of you heard, I am retiring from the game and unfortunately did not have time to keep this post up-to-date over the last few months. Many of the resources and tips here will still be helpful for beginners learning how traits work, but unfortunately it does not incorporate information about newer heroes such as Mercer or Yumiko, or how to use Tools and Supports strategically. I wish I had more time, but it has been a blast and I hope this has helped.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

***************************

Hey everyone!

I've been sharing tips and videos on various chat mediums (Line, Slack, Discord, GroupMe) for a while now. I wanted to compile some of the tips I've shared to hopefully help the broader community out (and also because I'm getting tired of retyping the same things, lol).

Most of this advice is tailored towards middle level players trying to figure out what to prioritize or higher level players looking to take their game to the next level. I started the game a REALLY long time ago, so I don't have particularly good advice on how to build your camp because it has been a long time since I've had to do that.

1. Links to Challenge and Distance videos
2. General tips for succeeding in the Challenge and Distance
3. How to use survivors and what their ideal traits are
4. Suggested hero guide
5. Badging strategy
6. My favorite team combinations
7. Advanced guide to melee survivors
8. Advanced guide to ranged survivors
9. Helpful pictures and diagrams

Hope this is helpful! Any ideas for future posts are more than welcome. Also, if you have comments or recommendations on my posts, I'd love to hear them so that I can incorporate other advice and perspectives.

    You have an excellent YouTube channel to help out with strategy and such :) Awesome what you are doing here.

    Just a suggestion but what about a section to describe how to maximize Leader Traits for heros? Basically which leader trait is best in situations and how to pair them with other survivors (yes the possibilities are endless but could be helpful)?

    Just a suggestion. Love what you are doing here ;)
  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,740
    Thanks for the suggestion @vshield50! I will add that to my growing to-do list. You're one of the best in the game, so please jump in if you have tips of your own :)

    That's awesome @vshield50! I'm signing off soon for the night to watch some basketball games, but will incorporate those tips.

    Awesome, thanks for your effort.
    Can you also explain why the critical aim is must have for hunters?

    Thank you all for your support! Really glad this is helpful. I want to do a lot more, so please bear with me while I finish fleshing out the content. I'll reply and let you know when major sections are done, but I don't want to spam the frontpage for minor revisions.

    @imnfiction Critical Aim works better with Hunters than Shooters because they can hit multiple targets. Critical Aim gives Hunters stopping power, i.e., the ability to stun a walker so that they stop coming towards you. With a leader like Sasha who can quickly charge up herself and other Hunters, Critical Aim can give you just enough of a break to finish a mission, get out of harms way, recharge your survivors, etc. Check out the last 20 seconds of this video:

    Awesome work. Thank you for that. <3

    Why is the spear the weapon of your choice? The muscet makes more damage as far as i know.

    Musket does indeed more damage but you can only attack one walker at time (except charged attack) while with the spear you can kill up to 3 (6 if swift kicks in) walkers in one turn. Both weapons are great and I wouldn't say one is better than the other, they are just different.

    You were extremely lucky! The chance was only 0.64% for such outcome.

    @JayZ good stuff. Are you doing an updated version of @OneLessTitan 's wordpress (https://twdnomansland.wordpress.com/)? It would be fantastic to have this updated information on a web page outside the forums. Good luck on your efforts.
  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,740
    @Novell few reasons. First, as @Johnbert stated, musket can only attack one. Second, I like Tactical on Spear. Third, musket charged attack causes threat. And fourth, musket charged attack is a lot weaker than Spear!

    @BttlOpener unfortunately, I have no plans of going that big. It’s much easier to share tips than to keep an entire fact-based Wikipedia up-to-date. Sorry...

    @JayZ bumping your thread with an added caveat. My guild appreciates your post and we are sharing your info with them. And I was not even the one who posted it in our chat.
