Spellcraft

With version 2 comes the ability to load and save mercenary builds. The Faction Upgrades and Spells are saved in templates.

Note: You will need to manually select the alignment and bloodline.

Templates can be found at the top of each build table (if available).

Important: R12 and above Get Know Your Enemy Part 1 Artifact, using the Harley Quinn build.

Note: Most Templates are in order that the game save them in. Also when loading Templates the game will buy the upgrades you can afford first and you may need to load Templates several times to buy all upgrades.

Fairy Chanting on gold everything else on silver no Tax Collection.

Cast Fairy Chanting twice during the 20 seconds spell combo.

Switch to Elf Research from around 1 Dvg (1E69) gems. Players below R20, go for at least 100 Dvg (1E71) - 500 Dvg (5E71) Gems.

This is an Elven Luck build, so don't use Tax Collections.

Clicking manually will not bring any benefits (when using Elven Luck).

Elven Luck is originally an Elven Faction Upgrade. But in this build, Elven Luck comes from the Star Blessing challenge which adds 5% chance to trigger Elven luck to Moon Blessing's clicks.

Lightning Forge Instructions:

Early game, play until you get a Blacksmith Lightning Strike.

This is when you get your big gem boost, other strikes barely count.

To gain time: As soon as you have bought LS, use the Realm Weather Service to check your LS forecast. Cast Lightning Strikes alone and get ready, build all you can, for when it will hit Blacksmith.

(**Note: This tool can be temporarily broken after updates.)

When Lightning Strike hits Blacksmith, drop all your mana on a full combo-spell and cast as many tax collections as you can while all the other spells are casting.

You can get more TCs by casting spells manually: First cast all the non-FC-TC spells, wait 10 seconds for some mana to build-up, then cast FC+TCs. This can make a noticeable difference. Abdicate.

In later games, repeat the above process until gem growth slows substantially, feeding your gold back into buying buildings to improve the return of the combos.

If you have Spiritual Surge, do not use it until you can afford (6000 mana) to cast all 6 spells in one combo, as it will take away the ability to fully combo all other spells and reduce income.

Old(not updated) and/or obsolete

100B FC Build R10+ Neutral

Obsoleted as of 1.6.49 because of the reworking of Faceless Bloodline. Moved from Special Builds section on 3/21/2016.

Reported to get the 100B FC trophy in a matter of hours. Works with same instructions as Cast Frenzy.

Possibly obsoleted by IGOT a Need for Trophies with the Faceless bloodline. 1.5.46 has added a trophy for 1T FC and this build doesn't grow much after 1 day, so it doesn't scale well to 1T FC.

Range: R10+

Requirements: Priority Autocast, Fairy Chanting secret trophy, Coin Pillage trophy, Planned Autocasting (or better)

Alignment: Neutral

Bloodline: Faceless

Spells: Fairy Chanting, Diamond Pickaxe

Tier 1 Upgrades

Druid (1,2): Animal Companions

Angel (1,3): Angel Feathers

Elf (1,1): Elven Mint

Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry

Tier 2 Upgrades

Elf (2,1): Elven Emissary

Angel (2,2): Angelic Wisdom

Druid (2,3): Shapeshifting

Faceless (2,2): Mitosis

Tier 3 Upgrades

Fairy (3,3): Swarm of Fairies

Elf (3,1): Elven Diplomacy

Goblin (3,1): Goblin Central Bank

Faceless (3,1): Magical Treasure

Harlequin Bonus: 343%

Instructions: Same as Cast Frenzy.

Go Getter R3?-R15 Good

Built to get the 200k Spells, Unlimited Mana (300 m/s), and 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. (Obsoleted by IGOT a Need for Trophies.)

AlignmentGood: Good

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

Bloodline: Undead, Fairy (for production), or if Undead gives less than 50 assistants: Dwarf

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Goblin (1,3): 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).

Halls of Lightning R10 Neutral

Requirements: Hell Rush spell upgrade

Harlequin Bonus: 216%

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.

Lunacy Evil

Old idle incremental build - Obsolete/non-feasible due to changes to Drow bloodline.

Characteristics: Increases Total Clicks due to Moon Blessing, has constantly increasing returns on gems (G = a t^1.4)

Requirements: Sun Blessing (Moon Blessing secret trophy) unlocked, Planned Autocasting (if below R12, you only need Contingency Autocasting)

Alignment: Evil

Bloodline: Drow (2 Matches)

Spells: Combo Strike, Moon Blessing

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Goblin (1,1): Strong Currency

Dwarf (1,3): Mining Prodigies

Demon (1,3): Evil Conquerors

Instructions:

Build, then set up auto-casting to fire only Combo Strike. Let it run for an hour or so to build up Combo Strike bonus and Blade Dance.

Set up Contingency Auto-casting to fire Combo Strike, Moon Blessing and Call to Arms (add Blood Frenzy as a secondary spell at R12+), and leave for another hour or so without clicking in the game window AT ALL, then break Drow Bloodline to spend your winnings.

Leave it for as long as you can bear to leave it for, or until you hit your gem target.

Innkeeper R7-R16 Neutral

Obsolete due to Grand Balance targeting buildings that haven't been purchased. (v1.5.45)

Used to be a powerful rush build up to 1 Dvg (1e69) gems. Very strong short-term idle build. At higher gem totals it is best to get 100 or more Royal Exchanges.

Range: R7-R16. Spiritual Surge spell optional.

Characteristics: Keeps Inns at lowest base production to make Grand Balance and Fairy Chanting combo and give them the highest production.

Requirements:

Fairy Choir spell upgrade.

Do not buy the 2000 building Inn upgrade.

Do not build Deep Mines.

At times don't build too many Inns

Alignment: Neutral

Spells: Grand Balance, Fairy Chanting

Bloodline: Titan, Undead, Faceless (Bloodstream matches: 3, 0, 1)

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Goblin (1,1): Strong Currency

Druid (1,1): Druidic Vocabulary

Titan (1,3): Oversized Legends

Dwarf (1,3): Mining Prodigies (at low excavations Elf (1,3) Sylvan Treasure Frills)

Tier 2 Upgrades:

Faceless (2,1): Gold Synthesis

Titan (2,3): Cyclopean Strength

Druid (2,2): Bardic Knowledge

Druid (2,1): Earthly Bond

Tier 3 Upgrades:

Titan (3,3): Titan Obelisk

Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers

Fairy (3,3): Swarm of Fairies (With Undead Bloodline: Professional Assassins)

Druid (3,3): Building Jungle Alternate: Drow (3,2) Professional Assassins

Harlequin bonus: 216%

Other Bloodlines:

Undead: This bloodline may be stronger than Titan at Reincarnation 19, but with 0 bloodstream matches, Undeadline's usefulness is highly dependent on your time spent as Undead.

Faceless: This bloodline compliments this build decently. Like other builds, you'd need a very high time spent as faceless to beat Titan, particularly with the 3 bloodstream matches for Titan. For long Faceless runs, drop Druid (2,2) Bardic Knowledge for Elf (2,2) Elven Efficiency.

Instructions:

Don't build Deep Mines.

Do not buy the Inn upgrade "Carved Wood Tables" Carved Wood Tables has a green icon and requires 2000 Inns.

Requires at least 2000 stone pillars and alchemist labs. (Works at lower totals as long as you limit Inns and refrain from purchasing the most expensive Inn upgrade available.)

Once the 2000 Stone Pillars and Alchemist Labs upgrades are purchased, called "Mark of Income" and "Core Iron Transmutation". Inns can be bought safely to the same price as stone pillars*.

Auto-casting: AFK autocast for longer runs.

Silver: Grand Balance, Spiritual Surge if R14+, Gem Grinder, Call to Arms, Fairy Chanting

Gold: Tax collection

For lower gem totals with less max mana, leave Gem Grinder out of the casting combo.

Manual casting will get you about 2 more tax collections than auto-casting.

*As of patch 1.4.37, the Inn income is much closer to stone pillar income than before. To keep inns as the Grand Balance target, try not to have inns exceed stone pillars by more than 50 during combo casting.

At the same price, inns exceed stone pillars by 30.

For a wider safety margin of over 100 buildings, but with somewhat reduced income, use Drow (3,2) Professional Assassins in place of Druid (3,3) Building Jungle.

Pyrastrike (v1.3.34.0) Evil

Gives loads of gems, fast. (R3-R12ish) Used to be the best short-term build before the advent of Lightning Forge. Lightning Forge is better in pretty much any situation.

For really fast runs, in the range e42-e52 gems you can skip buildings, for a better chance to hit Pyramid (faster runs) in exchange for a lower gem gain. Read post. Less usefull when you need a second Pyramid hit.

Faction Coin Frenzy R7+ Evil

100B 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

Harlequin Bonus: 512/729%

Instructions: Since faceless bloodline builds off of mana spent, you will just use FC+TC to get mps to buff faceless bloodline, and TC to gather FC.

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 (v1.3.34.0) R3+ Neutral

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). Skip building Deep Mines for best production.

Slows down quite badly around e61/e62 gems if you don't have Spiritual Surge (R14+ bonus)

Range: R3+ Often not optimal at lower gem counts, but this can take you all the way to at least R13 (e63 gems) without needing a grower build if it has to.

IGOT a Need for Trophies R7-R16 Note for R3 Good

A build that is capable of getting 300 mps, all assistant trophies, spell casting and autocasting achievements (30M mana in about 21h, and 50M mana for 28h).

Note: this can be done starting at R3 with > 100 Dc (1E35) Gems. In the R3 case by time you complete Beard Carpet (3d 11h 20m) you will have also completed Exchange Master, Exchange Lord, Mined Dwarf, 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.

Range: R7+.

Alignment: Good

Spells: Fairy Chanting, Diamond Pickaxe [Combo Strike: If you need a source of income to keep you going in the mana build, and you have a secure source of faction coins such as the Faceless Bloodline, trade Diamond Pickaxe for Combo Strike.]

Bloodline:

Druid if also going for mana/spells cast,

Undead / Dwarf if only going for assistants (only use Dwarf at R7 to R10, and if using an autoclicker to get more assistants)

Faceless if going for Royal Exchanges or, with the Coin Pillage upgrade, the 100 B (1E11) and 1 T (1E12) Faction Coin trophies

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Angel (1,3): Angel Feathers

Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry

Druid (1,2): Animal Companions

Angel (1,1): Holy Bells

Tier 2 Upgrades:

Angel (2,2): Angelic Wisdom [For Royal Exchange trophies: Drow (2,3): Blackmail]

Angel (2,3): Archangel Feathers [To get Beard Carpet: Dwarf (2,3): Bearded Assistants]

Faceless (2,2): Mitosis

Druid (2,3): Shapeshifting

Tier 3 Upgrades:

Fairy (3,3): Swarm of Fairies

Angel (3,3): Seraphim Feathers // Angel (3,2): Angelic Dominance

Faceless (3,1): Magical Treasure

Goblin (3,1): Goblin Central Bank

Harlequin bonus: 216%

Instructions: 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 (~21 hours), to acquire Planned Autocasting.

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 first.

The Undead and Dwarf bloodlines summon Assistants faster to get the 500 assistants trophy first.

The Faceless bloodline, along with the Coin Pillage upgrade, transform this Tax Collection-heavy build into a Faction Coin factory. This path can give you 10 M (1E7)+ FC per second in a few hours, growing over time.

Cialis R7-R15 Neutral

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:

Elves (3,3): Ancient Clicking Arts

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).

Long Build of 2-4 days or more. Premise - Offline Production through use of Undead Resilience paired with a basic IGOT recursion loop. Magical Treasure is not included because it does not interact with Undead Resilience meaningfully. (by Cold_Embrace - source)

Range: R15+, 1 Uvg (1E66)+ gems

Offline Bonus on Start-up - 1.735 M% (17,350x) with all upgrades taken into consideration.

Harlequin Bonus: 729%

Notes: For this build which will require a 2-4 days buildup you will need something to add to the production during check-up periods (which will last probably a day or two, just leave the game on) so run Combo Strike. Your second spell would be Goblin's Greed, since it helps with getting faction coins early if you've bombed excavations on it or even if you just want extra for the faction coin related upgrades.

Instructions

Build up your buildings, upgrades, and exchanges as if you were playing other builds featuring the Drow bloodline and then sit back once you have all your production in place. This build has 3 phases which are explained below. As a general rule, the longer you spend in each phase, the better your recursion loop and offline multipliers becomes.

Phases:

You'll be spending 24~48 hours in this phase ideally, just building up tax collection casts. Remember that you'll be getting two spells with every cast thanks to Goblin Central Bank. This builds your recursion loop and makes getting the critical assistants you need easier. Do NOT transition until you have the mana to either reasonably cast Combo Strikes at a decent rate (around 28 MPS minimum with 100 assistants, lower if you're more comfortable with it). Your production in this phase will be quite low and you will not see much progress except in MPS and assistant amounts. This is naturally part of the build, so do not be alarmed.

After phase one, phase two is where you adjust your spell casting from Tax Collection to JUST Combo Strike. You'll spend probably another 24~48 hours in this phase. At this point, your production should increase slowly as you start adding to your Blade Dance percentage. You'll continue like this for a while until the Blade Dance percentage is at least 18K% if not more. Once that part is managed, you can decide when to jump into phase three.

Congratulations, you've persisted for at least 2-4 days. This means you are now probably ready to go offline for a while and enjoy your 2 M (2.7E6)% ~ 3 M (3.7E6)%+ bonus to production that CONTINUES to grow over time. When you've adjusted your buildings where you needed to, since the likely temptation of sprucing up buildings one last time is there... leave the game. For demonstration purposes, when I went offline during phase two for about 10 minutes, I ended up going about two name changes of gem in 10 minutes with a decent multiplier on everything.

Warning: You'll have to charge up the bonus for drow bloodline but give it about the same length of time as your first two phases and you'll have a magnificent bonus. You'll have around 18.7 mana per second (MPS) to start with. At around 38.9 or so MPS, Combo Strike starts to go into a state where you have leftover mana but can't really spend it without interrupting the flow of Combo Strikes. I would recommend just waiting for excess mana to build up and cast a Goblin's Greed or two if it happens. This build benefits greatly from spare excavations but Goblin's Greed does the trick pretty well if you don't have any.

Pyrastrike Plus Neutral

Template:

FR8,EL3,GB1,DM6,TT3,TT6,DD4,DD9,FC4,DN3,DN7,DW8,

SP:Lightning Strike,SP:Diamond Pickaxe

This build comes from wiki (Merc Builds) with an unknown source.

Medium length build, 11h to 18h run. 10h build-up time necessary. Stronger than regular Pyrastrike (now obsolete) after 10h, worse than Cialis (long build) after 18h (Pyrastrike used to be the best short-term build before the advent of Lightning Forge.)

Characteristics: Lightning Strike on Pyramids for lots of money. The spell chain should not be broken.

Range: ?

Alignment: Neutral

Bloodline: Angel (0 Matches)

Spells: Lightning Strike, Diamond Pickaxe

Tier 3 Upgrades:

Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers

Druid (3,3): Building Jungle

Fairy (3,2): Rainbow Link

Drow (3,2): Professional Assassins

Harlequin Bonus: 729%

Instructions:

Autocast Lightning Strike for about an hour for faction coins, and boost certain upgrades (at contingency autocasting 100%).

Set Call To Arms on bronze autocast and never let the chain break. You wont need to turn the Lightning Strike off for this.

After a few hours, when you feel like your Angel bloodline has become powerful enough, wait for full mana and CtA to be cast, then use Lightning Strike. When it hits Pyramids, cast Gem Grinder + Diamond Pickaxe and as many Tax Collections you can, leaving enough mana (~400), to not break the CtA chain.

Notes:

Mana recovery is going to be slow after a full spell combos because 20 out of 25 mps is going into the CtA chain. You need to recover about 6k mana with just the remaining 5mps and that's going to take about 20 minutes.

After 10 hours, this build is going to be 5 times more powerful than the regular Pyrastrike, but it will also take 5 times longer to prepare each combo.

The building up process can be done during your sleep time: Let it build-up for 10 hours during the night, and start the production phase in the morning. Abdicate after a maximum of 8 hours of production phase.

original post by NiraTheCuteLoli

So I've made a labystrike build for R18+ which keeps about the same production as Lightning Forge (atleast according my test).

Name: Nirastrike

Requirements: All Elf challenges

Spells: Moon blessing and Lightning Strike

Tier: 1

Territorial Expanse, Faceless 1.1

Druidic Volcabulary, Druid 1.1

Oversized Legends, Titan 1.3 or Mining Prodiges, Dwarf 1.3

Strong Currency, Goblin 1.1

Tier: 2

Cyclopean Strength, Titan 2.3

Bardic Knowledge, Druid 2.2

Earthly Bond, Druid 2.1

Gold Synthesis, Faceless 2.1

Tier: 3

Rainbow Link, Fairy 3.2 or Hivemind, Faceless 3.3

Titan Obelisks, Titan 3.3

Battlehammers, Dwarf 3.1

Building Jungle, Druid 3.3

I don't feel like making a list of what R use what upgrades. Before you get all elf challenges, the build is still useable with Fairy Chanting or Diamond Pickaxe but not as good. Titan bloodline is also viable but not as good unless your undead bloodstream is alot lower that titan bloodstream. To calculate the power of undead bloodline, use ( ( Assistants after bloodline ) / ( assistants before bloodline ) )^3 for a general idead of how it is.

Feel free to sugest improvements.

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.

Source: Thunderstruck Minotaur / Maze Masters

Maze Strike 2 Neutral

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: ?

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:

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.

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!

Harlequin Bonus: 512%

Instructions:

Leave Contingency Arrow on Bar at 100%. Then, set Contingency Autocasting on Fairy Chanting and Diamond Pickaxe, and Priority Autocasting on Tax Collection.

Notes:

1. This build gets FC faster by using the Mercenary Upgrade Trade Lords. It also increases mana regen over time which, in addition to the Undead Bloodline that increases your mana regen with the Druid (2,3): Shapeshifting upgrade, gives you about 60 mana regen without Fairy Chanting, allowing to use both spells, instead of one, with Tax Collections, without losing much time.

2. The Drow (2,3): Blackmail allows you to buy more FC Exchanges at a lower price. If you want to get the 100B FC Trophy, exchange it for Angel (2,3): Archangel Feathers (It's a little improvement, but it's more useful if you only want to get FC and not exchanges.

3. If your max mana and mana regeneration is high enough, a more efficient spell configuration can be achieved by setting Contingency Arrow at around 11 seconds of mana production. This way Fairy Chanting is almost constantly active, while Diamond Pickaxe is only cast half of the time.

Requirements: All useful secret trophies are expected (assistant ones are especially helpful), pile of spare excavations (100-150 spendable) to get started and build Battlehammers/Strong Currency.

Instructions:

Fairy Bloodline version: Very little difference to use below R14 and about 20% improvement above. Do a ton of Combo Strikes as a growth phase, then switch to autocasting (TC: gold, all the others: Silver). Alternatively, manually cast FC: wait 10s to cast FC, the mana built up during that time will give you 1 - 2 extra TCs per combo.

Drow Bloodline version: Do minimum 8 - 12h of only Combo Strikes on autocast, then break Drow Bloodline to set up combo casting on everything (TCs on planned)

Start by using sufficient excavations to buy all heritages, pay for mercenary upgrades, and buy a reasonable amount of exchanges.

(For the first mercenary run or two of a reincarnation, skip the more expensive heritages.)

Take Brainwave first, and cast it immediately. Once you have filled out buildings and purchased all available buildings, let your mana bar fill.

Cast Call to Arms, wait ten seconds, and then cast Fairy Chanting and Holy Light.

While all four spells are running, buy as many buildings and upgrades as you can while casting any tax collections you have available.

Depending on your current gem progress, you can abdicate immediately or repeat the casting combo once or twice more while the brainwave is still active.

Abdicate once your first brainwave is finished, and repeat.

Harlequin Bonus: 512%

Instructions (Copied from IGOT for dummies by sonicman54, based on this postby artcrow)

Note: Buying more buildings/exchanges/upgrades should be done as you can afford them, there is no 'idle' requirement you need to worry about breaking.

Buy all upgrades and spells above, then start autocasting Tax Collections until you reach about 135 assistants (approximately 5 hours, if using Battlehammers ~17 hours)( you need 93 000 spell cast to get 135 assistants with just Holy Crusader).

Once you have 136 assistants, Fairy Chanting should be added into the beginning of the combo in one of two ways.

Set Fairy Chanting as priority 1 bronze, and TC as priority 1 silver, with contingency at around 97% max mana [Optimal amount may need testing], this will allow for very little downtime on Fairy Chanting with little need for micromanagement, but may cause for slower growth in mana regen.

Set Fairy Chanting as silver priority 1, and TC as priority 2, set contingency arrow at around 910 mana, or to where it will trigger around two seconds after FC times out (requires micromanagement every so often as your mana regen grows)

Alternatively, set FC and CS as Bronze 1 and 2, and leave the contingency arrow wherever fits best

Between 270-350 assistants (base), choose:

(Without Planned AC) Set Contingency arrow to 0. Set the spells to cast in this order: 1) Fairy Chanting, 2) Spiritual Surge, 3) Call to Arms, 4) Combo Strike, 5) Holy Light, 6) Tax Collection

(With Planned AC) Set the Contingency arrow to about 97% max mana (about one second before max mana). Set the silver spells in this order: 1) Fairy Chanting, 2) Spiritual Surge, 3) Combo Strike, 4) Call to Arms. Set the gold spells to: 1) Holy Light, 2) Tax Collection

Variants:

Longer run: use Dwarf (3,1) Battlehammers in place of Fairy (3,3) Swarm of Fairies. Requires about 55-60 hours of setup time.

Longest run - never attempted: Swap skills as in Longer run variant. Also use Dwarf (3,2) Magic Resistance in place of Goblin (3,1) Goblin Central Bank. Requires unknown number of days setup. Maybe 5? Read this or original post.

Note: Build title comes from the Bearded Assistants upgrade, "Increase the production of assistants based on how long their beard is (it grows over time!)

Alignment: Evil

Bloodline: Demon

Template:

FR1,FR2,FR3,FR8,EL8,DM6,TT6,DD9,FC6,DN2,DN7,DW5,

SP:Moon Blessing,SP:Hellfire Blast

Medium lengths build from few hours to 1 day (?) Designed to build up clicks for non-autoclicker users to be able to use Priapism (hence Moon Blessing instead of something better). It is also a good start point for a max buildings run.

Range: R3-R20+ (?)

Spells: Hellfire Blast, Moon Blessing (with Sun Blessing spell upgrade)

Tier 1 Upgrades:

Fairy (1,3): Starmetal Alloys

Dwarf (1,2): Expert Masonry

Fairy (1,1): Pixie Dust Fertiliser

Fairy (1,2): Fairy Cuisine

Tier 2 Upgrades:

Titan (2,3): Cyclopean Strength

Drow (2,2): Blood Sacrifices

Faceless (2,3): Overgrowth

Demon (2,3): Demonic Presence

Tier 3 Upgrades:

Dwarf (3,1): Battlehammers

Druid (3,3): Building Jungle

Fairy (3,2): Rainbow Link

Elf (3,2): Elven Luck

Instructions: Set up build, autocast Moon Blessing for ages, until you have enough clicks for Cialis. Before Abdicating, do a couple of Hellfire Blast/Moon Blessing/Call to Arms combos (if R12+ you can also get some overlap time with Blood Frenzy), spend the gold to maximise building numbers before abdicating to maximise Overgrowth and Faceless Heritage bonus next game.

Notes:

This was designed purely to get enough clicks to do Cialis, with the bonus of getting as many buildings as possible to improve the Overgrowth and Faceless Heritage bonuses on the Cialis run. For a quick max building count run, swap the Bloodline to Goblin and do a couple of combo casts.

Doing the Neutral equivalent of this build allows a slightly higher building count if you get a Pyramid hit from Lightning Strike when you do your building phase. However, the difference that would make to Overgrowth is tiny and you might have to wait for ages to hit the Pyramid, which would suck.

This also works really well for the 2k of each building runs around the end of R9/10 (it can be done at R7 with 25 Qid gems which is a little overshoot, a run for the good trophies took less than 30 minutes) if you use Goblin bloodline and ditch the Fairy upgrades in T1 for production (Dwarf (1,3) Mining Prodigies, Goblin (1,1) Strong Currency, Dwarf (1,1) Dwarven Ale/Titan (1,3) Oversized Legends if going for 2k HoLs). Non-Evil can't use Drow (2,2) or Hellfire Blast (usually), so Neutral should use Druid (2,1) Earthly Bond to allow also casting Gem Grinder with Lightning Strike as the second spell (swapping Overgrowth for Gold Synthesis is also a small improvement). Good is more complicated - they should swap both spells for Brainwave and Dwarven Pickaxe, on T1 always use Titan (1,3) Oversized Legends instead of Dwarf (1,1) Dwarven Ale, on T2 swap Drow (2,2) for Angel (2,2) Angelic Wisdom, then on T3 Elf (3,2) Elven Luck should swap out for Drow (3,2) Professional Assassins, and Fairy (3,2) Rainbow Link goes out for Fairy (3,3) Swarm of Fairies.

Note 1 contradicts the setup mentioned for a Good Foreplay run in Note 3. I just thought that was worth noting.
