refer to the cumulative part, the question is, the combats of this game are toally out of contrl, so how can i make sure the AI would use a cumulative card after a normal card but not before.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, luck/chance is a big factor in the battles here in Estiah.
As far as I know, there is no way to guarantee that you play an armor/ward before a cumulative armor/ward type charm (there may be a charm out there that grants normal armor/ward, then a cumulative, but that's a different case). You factor this in when making gears. More normal armor/wards? They get wasted if played consecutively. More cumul type armor/ward? They're normally low comparatively, and won't block all of a strong attack.

So you pick your poison :)

i think estiah is a game where you plan your tactics before battle rather than react to fight situation.

Sorry for necro-ing a half-year dead thread, but this is extremely relevant to my interests :x.

I've been mostly - if not entirely - levelling my way from level 5 to 8 (tiny, I know, which is why I post here) via PvP versus 13-charm dead alts.

However, now that I'm level 8, the PvP screen only shows me  L11 players - as usual, (Charlevel+3). This is, however, a wee bit annoying, since a.) I already maxed Courage 1, b.) there are no easily beatable alts for the last few points for spirituality and c.) I cannot view either lvl 8, 9 or 10 players, since the "Show All Opponents" button shows me at best 5% of my current level bracket, but a whole lot of people I have no intent to fight (and no chance either) instead.

I just wanted to ask whether or not I'm either blind, stupid or both and if I missed the magic "show me people of my level, instead of my level +3" button/trigger/switch.

Thanks in advance,

Worry not, with the next patch we'll add a pagination on the PvP screen so you will really see all the +3 / -3 players in your city.

Awesome. I've wanted a pagination for awhile.  :)

Nice guide!  :)  Just to clarify though, people can attack you any time whenever you are in a PvP city? Just asking because I moved to Aleas and Ive been attacked constantly by level 7 and 8s, while Im just a level 5. They simply have more armor, wards, spirit, and hp so they just exhast me.
Let not your heart be troubled.
