What Is A Prince/Princess Build?
The Prince and Princess Build (sometimes called a Royal Build) is currently very popular build. It’s a strong comp which is easy to put together. Possibly too easy – I find it rather boring. Most games seem to have at least one player if not two going for a Prince/Princess build. That has become even more likely since the introduction of Mihri.
Most of the Princes and Princesses in the game are Good, so this build doesn’t work so well if you’re focussing on Evil buffs and synergies (for example playing Krampus).
At the start of a brawl, level 2, there are three Royal characters available: Cinder-Ella, Lonely Prince and Sherwood Sureshot. All are worth buying, especially Lonely Prince – if you’re playing a Prince/Princess build then you’re going to transform him quickly. I might give Cinder-Ella a miss unless I was playing a spell based Hero such as Merlin or Loki.
Once you get into levels 3 and 4 you get to the backbone of the build. The three key cards are Romeo, Juliet and Prince Arthur. Romeo (level 3) doesn’t pay off until you have Juliet (level 4) and Prince Arthur doesn’t pay off until you have other Royals upgraded, so you might be tempted to leave them. That’s risky, you might end up missing out due to the shared pool.
To make the most of the Romeo & Juliet combo, you want to buff Juliet up as much as possible and, hopefully, upgrade her. Put her on the front row and Romeo on the back. If you have space in your lineup then it’s often better to have two copies of the basic Romeo than a single upgraded version.
An early Prince Arthur can do wonders for your Prince/Princesses stats, if you can get them upgraded. Note that Prince Arthur also buffs himself when upgraded.
This brings up the biggest problem with this build: to really make the most of it, you need to get your Royals upgraded, preferrably early. If the RNG is unkind to you or if others are competing for those same characters, you might not manage to get those upgrades. An alternative is to go for some of the weaker, quest-based characters such as Cinder-Ella, Brave Princess and The Nutcracker on the grounds they could be easier to upgrade.
Sleeping Princess at level 3 is a bit of a gamble – a very useful mid-game character if you can wake her up, fairly useless otherwise. Remember that Loki never casts targetted spells, so he won’t wake Sleeping Princess.
Court Wizard is a Mage rather than a Prince, however he synergises well with this build if you can buff him up and put him in the back row. His ranged attack firing multiple times during a brawl can be a winner.
Lancelot is a very useful level 5 character. If you buff his attack then he can self-buff rapidly and easily complete his upgrade Quest.
Treasures & Spells
Sting can also be very useful in giving Lancelot the initial push he needs to start his buff spiral going.
So there you are, now you know how to make a Prince/Princess build. But please don’t – I’m bored of seeing them
