Call of Dragons Merits Calculator

  1. Troop Type and Leader’s Level: The type of troops (T3, T4, T5, etc.) and the leader’s level play a significant role in merit calculation. For example, 120 leaders with T5 troops in a node give 44% of Severely Wounded Troops (SWT), while the same leaders with T4 troops give 40% of SWT.
  2. Location (In Node or Not): Troops in a node are consistent in merit calculation. However, when not in a node, the merits can vary. For instance, T5 troops not in a node can give as high as 15.73% of SWT, while full T4 may give as low as 10.64%.
  3. Seasonal Effects: In different seasons, hitting gatherers may give varying merits. For example, in Season 1+/2, hitting gatherers gives severely less merits than before in Season 1.
  4. Troop Count and Tier: The troop count and tier are the main premises of merits, with hero level having less influence. For example, 50k T4 troops with low-level heroes give roughly the same merits as 50k T4 with 50+ level heroes.
  5. Node Effects: Some players have noticed about 20-30% less merits if the units are in a node, though this hasn’t been extensively tested.

Remember: Merits Don’t Define Skill

Merit points don’t necessarily reflect a player’s PvP skills. They indicate the ability to get more kills, with T5 kills being worth more but much harder to kill than T4.
