Summon paladin. Paladins have 600 health and they can heal and sheild. Start with 80 gold 4 per sec and pals cost 80 gold

3 Likes

actually paladins cost 100

No, paladins cost 80, artilleries cost 100.

oh. Then what are artilleries?

Artilleries are artilleries, but if I had to describe it, it’s a cannon that shoots shells.

ok then.

What about Boss Star V (5)? What does that do?

It gives the ability to summon artilleries, and has a higher starting gold and level of gold production. (I know this from when Nick used it in duelling grounds and the thang sheet.)
Btw I do not have boss star V, neither is it available to the general user (subscribed or not).
:lion: :lion: :lion:

Then why do you use the boss star V in Zero Sum?

Because that’s set equipment for the ladder level.

how do you get boss star V
