Cast Frenzy Template:
Go Getter [G]
Go Getter

Moved on: 7/25/2016 reason: (Absolutely destroyed by IGOTnfT.)

Built to get the Caster Supreme (200k spells), Unlimited Mana (300 m/s), and Assistant Legion (300 assistants) trophies. Can also be good for getting the Coin Pillage secret trophy. (Took about ~2-3 days.) Built by VaticToxic in Room 1. (Absolutely fucking destroyed by IGOTnfT.)

  • Range: R3 (?) - R15

Alignment: Good

Spells: Fairy Chanting, God’s Hand or Combo Strike

Bloodline: Undead, Fairy (for production).

Tier 1 Upgrades:

  • Goblin (1,1): Strong Currency
  • Angel (1,2): Angelic Determination
  • Fairy (1,2): Starmetal Alloys
  • Choose one of the followings:
    • Titan (1,3): Oversized Legends
    • Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry [~6-8 extra assistants from Swarm of Fairies and Mitosis]
    • Druid (1,1): Druidic Vocabulary

Tier 2 Upgrades:

  • Faceless (2,2): Mitosis. [For longer runs and better income: Fairy (2,1): Fairy Workers]
  • Angel (2,2): Angelic Wisdom
  • Druid (2,3): Shapeshifting
  • Titan (2,3): Cyclopean Strength

Tier 3 Upgrades:

  • Fairy (3,3): Swarm of Fairies
  • Goblin (3,1): Goblin Central Bank
  • Faceless (3,1): Magical Treasure
  • Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers

Instructions:

Cast TC for about 6 hours, when you notice that the mana has time to refill twice, then add FC with contingency arrow set to ~900 mana.
I got 300 m/s AND 300 assistants (10 from the Undead Heritage, about 200 from Holy Crusaders, 55 from Swarm of Fairies, and 35 from Mitosis). Optionally, instead of the fourth T1 upgrade, Druid (1,2): Animal Companions might get you a little faster, as it can grow at a similar rate as the Undead Heritage.
I did it in the most inefficient way possible (without Magical Treasure, Angelic Wisdom, nor Starmetal) and still got the trophy in less than 6 days. Presuming you get 50 assistants from the Undead bloodline, or 45 from the Dwarf bloodline, you should get about 300 assistants slightly before reaching 200k spell casts (which, by itself gives 200 assistants).

Go Getter Template with God's Hand: Tier 1,3 upgrade option is left free. Manually select: Titan (1,3), Dwarf (1,2), or Druid (1,1)

Mana-narama [E]
MananaramaUpdated 11.17.2015: Not as effective, since Magical Treasure doesn’t count as mp/s - try IGOT a need for trophies instead.

High mana regen build. Use it to unlock Auto-casting and "Unlimited Mana" secret trophy.

Characteristics: Works better with its bloodline, but gets to 30M mana in 29h without it. Should be used with Goblin's Greed - (v1.4.39.2) without buying the spell upgrade - when on higher reincarnations so as to not waste mana when autocasting all spells.

Faction Coin Frenzy [E]
Faction Coin Frenzy100B FC Trophy build. Makes you wonder why you ever bothered with LS for FC

Range: R7+

Note: this build will not earn you gems, it sacrifices production income for FC income, so you’ll need to be higher gem range

Money production is very low, will need high gem count to create the build. Can fit 1 extra production upgrade in the T1 upgrades if needed.

ZenStrike [N]
ZenStrike (v2.5.6.1 - March 2, 2017)

Build that relies on Grand Balance and Lightning Strike hitting same building (note: Grand Balance won’t re-target based on what Lightning Strike hits). Weaker than Lightning Forge. See Grand Strike for Elf bloodline version.

Targets Deep Mines. Can be made to target other buildings by consulting RWS and refraining from buying building upgrades for upcoming targets. Intended target must be lowest producing building. Deep Mine income will present a ceiling on income for other buildings as Deep Mines have the lowest income fully upgraded. Doesn't work for Hall of Legends targets.

Spells: Lightning Strike, Grand Balance

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Notes: Variant of Zenstrike based on mercenary upgrades as of v2.6.5.1

Cialis [N] R?
Cialis

Long incremental build, requires its bloodline to function. Does not require excavations to start it, but does require highly involved production phase. (For people without autoclickers, spending a few hours in a Foreplay build will help the Ancient Clicking Arts bonus to get high enough.) The spell chain should not be broken.

  • Characteristics: Has roughly quadratic gem gains with time (two times time, four times gems. Three times time, nine times gems)
  • Alignment: Neutral
  • Bloodline: Angel (0/1 Matches)
  • Spells: Combo Strike, Lightning Strike

Tier 1 Upgrades:

  • Goblin (1,1): Strong Currency
  • Dwarf (1,3): Mining Prodigies (if low excavations use Titan (1,1) Colossol Forge)
  • Druid (1,1): Druidic Vocabulary
  • Dwarf (1,1): Dwarven
    • Alt 32h+ runs—Angel (1,2): Angelic Determination

Tier 2 Upgrades:

  • Titan (2,3): Cyclopean Strength
  • Demon (2,3): Demonic Presence
  • Druid (2,1): Earthly Bond
    • Autoclicker-ers R12+ — Faceless (3,3): Overgrowth
  • Faceless (2,1): Gold Synthesis
    • 32h+ runs - Drow (2,1): Mana Addicts

Tier 3 Upgrades:

  • Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers
  • Elves (3,3): Ancient Clicking Arts
    • 32h+ run - Dwarf (3,2): Magic Resistance
  • Druid (3,3): Building Jungle
    • Autoclicker-ers—Elves (3,2): Elven Luck
  • Drow (3,3): Blade Dance

Harlequin Bonus: 729%

Instructions:

  • Do a bunch of Lightning Strikes and start by getting the mana regeneration and production upgrades. (+40 m/s total mana regen is theoretically required before moving on, 38 m/s seems to work in practice due to lag between autocast spells).
  • Set Combo Strike to autocast with contingency turned off. Let it run for ages, maybe throwing in the occasional spell to use up excess mana, but avoid letting spell castings stop (!!!) or your Angel bloodline bonus will drop - Spamming Tax Collections is risky here.
  • Final production phase is just before abdicating, swap autocasting from Combo Strike to Call To Arms; Lightning Strike every time mana hits 100%, if you hit a Pyramid use Combo Strike, Gem Grinder and as many Tax Collections as you can without risking a break in the spell chain (!!!)
  • Repeat for about 10 Pyramid hits (depending on time played).
  • Cialis High Excavations:

IGOT a Need for Trophies [G] R7- R16 (R3)
IGOT a Need for Trophies

A build that is capable of getting 300 mps, assistant and spell casting (30M mana in about 21h, and 50M mana for 28h). Was not designed for the 1B FC trophy, but can unintentionally get it.

  • Range: R7- R16

R3: This can be done starting at R3 with > 100 Dc (1E35) Gems. By time you complete Beard Carpet (3d 11h 20m) you will have also completed Exchange Master, Exchange Lord, Minedwarf, 100 Billion Faction Coins, Unlimited Mana, Efficient Autocasting, Fairy Choir, and Assistant Horde. It is recommended that you purchase the trophy rewards as they become available.

  • Alignment: Good**
  • Bloodline:
    • Druid (2 Matches) if also going for mana/spells cast.
    • Undead (0 Matches) if only going for assistants
  • Spells: Fairy Chanting, Diamond Pickaxe [consider Goblin's greed if using auto-cast for mana burn]

Tier 1 Upgrades:

  • Angel (1,1): Holy Bells
  • Angel (1,3): Angel Feathers
  • Druid (1,2): Animal Companions
  • Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry

Tier 2 Upgrades:

  • Angel (2,2): Angelic Wisdom
    • [Consider Drow (2,1): Mana Addicts as it increases mana regen a lot]
  • Angel (2,3): Archangel Feathers
  • Druid (2,3): Shapeshifting
  • Faceless (2,2): Mitosis
    • [To get Beard Carpet: Dwarf (2,3): Bearded Assistants]

Tier 3 Upgrades:

  • Fairy (3,1): Kind Hearts
    • [Angel (3,2): Angelic Dominance if low gems and you already have Priority Autocasting]
  • Fairy (3,3): Swarm of Fairies
  • Goblin (3,1): Goblin Central Bank
  • Faceless (3,1): Magical Treasure

Harlequin bonus: 216%

Instructions:

Buy the upgrades and buildings when they come in. (Once in a while, you can do a few combo-casts for more buildings/income.)
Bloodlines optimize this build to get a certain kind of trophy first.

  • The Druid bloodline increases mana regeneration faster to get the 300 mana/s trophy and autocasts first.
  • The Undead Bloodline summons Assistants faster to get the 500 assistants trophy first. (May not be optimal for 1000/2000 assistants.)

Autocasting:

You can adapt your setup depending on which trophies you are aiming, and on which autocasting tools you have. Build relies on assistants (assistants are increased by the amount of spell casts, spell casts are increased by mana, mana is increased by assistants...)

  • Tax Collection helps get spell casts and assistants.
  • Fairy Chanting helps get mana (Always use FC so it feeds mana to the other spells)
  • Diamond Pickaxe can help get Faction Coins (You can use it to buy the heritages. Click reward gets better with more excavations and assistants.)

Build-up, Assistants & Spell cast trophies:

Build-up to get assistants.
If you have Priority autocasting or better, put Fairy Chanting on priority 1 and Tax Collection on 2. If no decent autocasting, just leave TC on repeat and buy the upgrades when they come in.
You’ll need to leave it for quite a while, to acquire Planned or Efficient Autocasting (~21 hours for 30M, ~28 hours for 50M mana)

Notes:

** Below about R10 or so (not actually sure where the cutoff is), your best option for 300 assistants is to combine it with the unlocking of Planned Autocasting (30M mana produced) and the 200k spells cast trophies in an IGOT-style Good build. If you want the 500 assistants trophy, this build is your best bet under almost any circumstances below R22, possibly even higher.
*** Angelic Dominance (longer spells) is actually more helpful than the old Feathers upgrade (20% increase to mana regen) for increasing your spells cast and gaining more assistants, it was close for total mana. As a result, it is MUCH better than Magical Gates (Angel 3,1).

Experimental Builds Edit

Moved whole section on the 7/25/2016 reason: these builds are very old and have not been updated.

The following builds are not sufficiently tested to guarantee efficiency. Builds that fail will be moved to the Obsolete section.

Maze Strike [N]
Maze Strike
  • Description: For those who want to give labyrinth builds a try. Tested at R10 with 10 Ocd gems, after 2 hours I had 2 Ocd. (source )
  • Range: ~R10
  • Alignment: Neutral

Alignment: Neutral

Spells: Lightning Strike, Fairy Chanting

Bloodline: Titan

Tier 1 Upgrades:

  • Faceless (1,1): Territorial Expanse
  • Goblin (1,1): Strong Currency
  • Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry [maybe Dwarven Ale]
  • Titan (1,3): Oversized Legends [if 450+ excavations: Dwarf (1,3): Mining Prodigies]

Tier 2 Upgrades:

  • Titan (2,3): Cyclopean Strength
  • Faceless (2,2): Mitosis
  • Faceless (2,1): Gold Synthesis
  • Druid (2,1): Earthly Bond

Tier 3 Upgrades:

  • Fairies (3,3): Swarm of Fairies
  • Titan (3,3): Titan Obelisk
  • Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers
  • Druid (3,3): Building Jungle

Harlequin Bonus: 216%

Instructions:

Fairy Chanting triples the assistants, giving Labyrinths ~1.5 Million % while it’s running. Combine that with a Lightning Strike on it. After 2 hours of pure afk Autocasting Lightning Strike, you will have ~175 Royal Exchanges of each faction to enhance your Titan Bloodline, and you have made a nice gem builder.

Maze Strike 2 [N]
Maze Strike 2

All upgrades strategically emphasize the use of Territorial Expanse causing Labyrinth to harness ~99% of your total production income before using spells, combined with Lightning Strike and/or Diamond Pickaxe, Combo Strike or Fairy Chanting will tremendously boost your overall production.

  • Range: ?
  • Alignment: Neutral

Many upgrades are optional. The best combination for you depends on the choice of the version, your past progresses, and how you want to play (Squeezing every last drop of production).

  • Alignment: Neutral
  • Bloodline: Depends version (see versions below)
  • Spells: Depending version: Lightning Strike and/or Combo Strike, Fairy Chanting, or Diamond Pickaxe

Tier 1 Upgrades:

  • Faceless (1,1 Territorial Expanse) - MANDATORY
  • Goblin (1,1 Strong Currency) - Optional
  • Dwarf (1,1 Dwarven Ale) - Optional
  • Dwarf (1,2 Expert Masonry) - Optional*
  • Dwarf (1,3 Mining Prodigies) - Optional
  • Titan (1,3 Over-sized Legends) - Optional**
  • Drow (3,1 Underworld Tyranny) - Optional***

* Dwarf (1,2 Expert Masonry) is specially good at lower gem counts, when you can't build more then 2000 buildings of each type.

** Titan (1,3 Over-sized Legends) is good for the Fairy Chanting version, and best combined with Expert Masonry.

*** Drow (3,1 Underworld Tyranny) counts towards your total time spent being Evil and can be a good option (unless you have only used this or other non-evil builds, then you don't need it.)

I tend to use Territorial Expanse, Strong Currency, Mining Prodigies and Dwarven Ale in my recent builds.

Tier 2 Upgrades:

  • Titan (2,3 Cyclopean Strength) - MANDATORY
  • Druid (2,1 Earthly Bond) - MANDATORY
  • Druid (2,2 Bardic Knowledge) - MANDATORY
  • Faceless (2,1 Gold Synthesis) - Optional**
  • Faceless (2,2 Mitosis) - Optional*
  • Faceless (2,3 Overgrowth) - Optional**

* Mitosis: if you use the Fairy Chanting version.

** Gold Synthesis or Overgrowth: Choose Gold Synthesis if you decide to build Alchemists, or Overgrowth for Labyrinths. See note 1 below.

I always take Cyclopean Strength, Earthly Bond, Bardic Knowledge and Gold Synthesis to ensure I have the highest possible production value.

Tier 3 Upgrades:

  • Dwarf (3,1 Battlehammers) - MANDATORY
  • Titan (3,3 Titan Obelisk) - MANDATORY
  • Faceless (3,1 Hive Mind) - Optional
  • Drow (3,3 Blade Dance) - Optional
  • Druid (3,3 Building Jungle) - Optional
  • Fairy (3,3 Swarm of Fairies) - Optional

Harlequin Bonus: ~216%

Versions:

  • Fairy Chanting version: Swarm of Fairies is critical! In addition, if you take the Undead Bloodline or the Dwarven Bloodline you'll further boost the number of assistants. When you cast Fairy Chanting with this upgrade you'll multiply your assistants by 3, and it will also multiply your Territorial Expanse upgrade by 3 as well.
  • Combo Strike version: Blade Dance is critical! Takes over a day or more to buildup. For higher gem counts. Don't use this version until you're within x1000 gems from Reincarnation. Bloodline: Titan or Undead/Dwarven
  • Other versions: Titan or Undead Bloodline. "Hive Mind" works if you have spent time building it up. Also depends on your reincarnation level.

Notes:

  1. You do not need to build every building type. In fact, you might advance faster not building Deep Mine, Alchemist and Monastery. Depending on the outcome, you can even take this step further by also eliminating Farms, Inns and blacksmiths.
  2. This build works best in combination with the shop upgrade "Gift of the Gods" which awards 25k faction coins of each type at the start of every new game. After acquiring enough Gems to use Mercenaries, you can almost immediately purchase Lightning Strike. This fuels your early game faction coin needs and allows you to quickly build up.

With the premium "Gift" upgrades from the shop, I was able to quickly ascend from R3 to R10 in under 2 weeks. I am now approaching R17 using only this build (Much of which is impacted by inactivity due to the holiday season). I am always in Room 10!

Instructions:

  • Cast all the spells only when LS hits HoL
  • Like all LS builds you can sacrifice production to get higher mana regen but choose your upgrades carefully this build becomes useless if Ancient Pyramids are better then your HoLs.

At R10, I went from 10 Qad (1E46) to 1 Sxd (1E51) gems at the first HoL combo spell cast.

v1.3.34.0

Fast bursty build, not relying on LS, with better gem gains than most *-strike builds since the 1.3.34 update.

Quickly build up, using Excavations for FC, until reaching at least 2200 max mana (any more is highly preferred). You can now start combo casting CtA + NT + HB, adding a TC or two if and when you can afford this. Clicks are useless here, TC and normal production get you everything. Abdicate whenever.
