The Ultimate Guide to AOD: Encyclopedia and Tips

 
 

Game Modes

 
In AOD, there are four game modes: Defense, Escape, Fog, and Survival, which are sequentially unlocked as you progress through the level. Each of them gives access to the following modes. They also bring a reward in Gold, and the Defense mode brings Crystals.AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
If you complete a level while maintaining 100% base health, you’ll get the full reward. If the base is damaged, the reward is reduced in proportion to its safety. However, you can replay the level at any time to improve your score and collect the remaining resources. 
 

Defense

 
It is the simplest mode with generous rewards. You have to hold back the onslaught of enemies. The number of attacks is indicated at the top of the screen. AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
The first number indicates the number of the current attack, the second – the total number of attacks. 
 

Escape

 
The enemy is trying to steal Fuel from your base! That cannot be allowed to happen! In this mode, the enemies move in the opposite direction – from the base to the beginning of the road. Some of them carry barrels. When a unit is destroyed, the barrel remains to lie on the road. Then it is picked up by the next enemy. AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
The game is lost if the enemy takes out 10 barrels. 
 

Fog

 
Your task is to protect the base. However, the map is hidden by the “fog of war,” dispelling only within the range of the towers. It is a difficult mode since the action radius of the towers is decreased, and the disclosure of the map requires additional resources. The best way to remove the fog is to build radars because they have the largest action radius. It is best to do this before the first attack, and it is advisable to sell unnecessary radars immediately. 
 

Survival

 
It is an endless game mode in which the repelled enemy attack brings a certain amount of crystals. With each wave, the opponents become more powerful, but the longer you hold out, the greater the reward. Crystals are received after the end of the game. 
 
 

Towers

 
The main weapon of the player in AOD is the towers that shoot down the advancing enemies. The game has six main types of towers, which have their skill tree and a unique hero. 
 
When the player builds the base tower on the playing field, it has level 1. For coins, the tower can be upgraded to level 2. AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
Starting from chapter 2, the 3rd level of tower improvement becomes available, from chapter 5 – the 4th level, from chapter 10 – the 5th level. Except for ASG, any tower can be sold, returning a part of the funds spent on its construction and improvement. 
 

Main towers

 

 
 

Siege house

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: the destruction of infantry. 
Improvements: an ability to attack up to four targets at the same time, hand grenades, grenade launcher. 
Hero: Ostovsky 
Price: 
Level 1 – 200 
Level 2 – 200 
Level 3 – 400 
Level 4 – 1000 
Level 5 – 3000 
 
The house is the best means to fight against enemy infantry, but it is ineffective against vehicles. The house advantage is the low price, which makes it valuable when repelling the first attacks. This type of tower is convenient for blocking roads; a Jumper cannot fly over the house. The “Roof Position” perk allows the house to attack aerial targets, dealing them minor damage. 
 

Minigun

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: the destruction of trucks, light and medium vehicles 
Improvements: Hand grenades 
Hero: Alex Tanov 
Price: 
Level 1 – 400 
Level 2 – 600 
Level 3 – 1200 
Level 4 – 2400 
Level 5 – 5000 
 
The minigun deals well with enemy vehicles and will be indispensable in repelling the first attacks. At the same time, it is not efficient enough against infantry and is useless for armored equipment. The disadvantage of the minigun is that when firing continuously, it overheats and fails for a few seconds. Special perks “Heat-resistant barrels” and “Cooler” increase the shooting duration and reduce the cooling time. After reaching level 45, Alex Tanov gains a skill that cancels the overheating effect. A Combat Helicopter, a Jumper, and a Tribola can fly over the minigun, which should be taken into account when planning a defense. 
 

Hologram

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: slowing down the enemy 
Upgrades: it increases damage to nearby towers, it converts into a Money hologram (extra income), or a Tesla (hits groups of ground and air targets with electricity). 
Hero: Art Lion 
Price: 
Level 1-650 
Level 2-800 
Level 3-1600 
Level 4 – 3200 
Level 5 – 7000 
 
The hologram plays a significant role in building a defense, strengthening towers, and delaying enemies in the firing zones. A Tribola cannot fly over a hologram. 
 

Tank

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: the destruction of enemy’s armored equipment 
Improvements: damage to medium vehicles and trucks. 
Hero: Lucky 
Price: 
Level 1 – 600 
Level 2 – 700 
Level 3 – 1500 
Level 4 – 3100 
Level 5 – 6500 
 
At the beginning of the game, the tank may seem weak and slow, but this is a deceptive impression. By purchasing upgrades for one and upgrading the hero-cat, you will get a powerful weapon that will become the backbone of your defense. Tanks are profitable to build on neighboring cells because the “Battle Brotherhood” perk allows you to increase the damage they cause. Despite its power, the tank is ineffective against special forces, so when placing tanks, combine them with siege houses. 
 

Air defense

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: the destruction of enemy aircraft 
Improvements: 3 additional missiles 
Hero: Jim Jackson 
Price: 
Level 1 – 500 
Level 2 – 1000 
Level 3 – 1500 
Level 4 – 2200 
Level 5 – 5000 
 
The enemy has many aircraft, so do not forget to develop air defense – there is no alternative to it. The anti-aircraft machine gun and endless missiles that Jim Jackson gets at level 50 make the game much easier to complete. The Tribola and Jumper cannot fly over the air defense, which is extremely useful when planning a defense. 
 

Gas station

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: sets fire to enemy vehicles and infantry, which receive additional fire damage for some time 
Improvements: brings additional income, increases the damage of neighboring towers. 
Hero: Ich Nebel 
Price: 
Level 1-300 
Level 2-500 
Level 3-800 
Level 4-1200 
Level 5-2300 
 
The gas station is especially effective at repelling initial attacks, burning out enemy columns. On the last onslaughts, they will not be so helpful, but the coins brought by the gas station will be valuable in any case. It is more profitable to build these towers next to each other because the perk “Partners” repeatedly increases the income they bring. The “Battle Brotherhood” raises the damage inflicted. Thanks to the “Supply” perk, all the towers adjacent to the gas station receive an increase in damage. 
 

Auxiliary towers

 

 
 

ASG

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Specialization: Ship destruction 
Price: 
Level 1 – 2000 
Level 2 – 2000 
Level 3 – 3800 
Level 4 – 8000 
Level 5 – 15000 
 
The ASG is the only type of turret capable of firing continuously at ships. It does not have its skill tree and hero. The player cannot build or sell ASG – all of them are initially present on the playing field, only their improvement is available. 
 

Katana / Sequoia

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Price: 750 
A katana is a rocket launcher that strikes ground targets in the player’s chosen target area. After each salvo, it takes a considerable time to reload. The katana is particularly effective against infantry, light and medium vehicles, and ships. 
 
The Sequoia perk allows you to combine two Katanas built next to each other into a Sequoia – a missile system with a large radius of destruction that causes significant damage to ground targets, aircraft, and ships. 
 

Bulldozer

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Purchase price: 70 
After opening the “Bulldozer” perk, the price is 20. 
It is a universal barrier for blocking paths and building new routes. A Jumper and a Tribola can fly over the bulldozer, which should be taken into account when building a defense. 
 

Oil pump / Oil Rig

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Price: 500 
They generate income at regular intervals. After opening the “Oil Rig” perk, two pumps built next to each other combine into an oil rig, which gives significantly more revenue. 
 
By building these towers at the beginning of the game, you can make a profit that is many times higher than their cost. You can upgrade the oil pump and the oil rig in the “Other” skill tree. 
 

Radar

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Price: 420 
It increases the range of neighboring towers, and after purchasing the “Supply” perk, it gives them additional damage. Radar is essential for passing levels in the Fog mode because it reveals a much larger territory than other tower types. You can purchase improvements for it in the “Other” skill tree. 
 
 

Heroes

 

 

How to put a hero in a tower?

 
Heroes give the player an exceptional advantage by increasing the characteristics of an individual tower and endowing it with various helpful properties. To use the hero, you need to click on the tower, and then an icon with the image of the hero will appear above it. Click on the icon; it will go down. Done, a hero is in the tower! 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 

How to change the tower for the hero?

 
At any time, the hero can transfer to another tower. Select a tower and click on the hero icon to make it go up. Selling a tower with a hero inside does not affect anything; the hero can be used immediately in another tower. 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 

Hero level and perks

 
The hero’s tower damage bonus increases by approximately 1.5% with each level gained. To increase it, you need the experience that the hero accumulates when destroying enemies. Please note that the experience gained in battle does not transfer to another level! E.g., if you have 15 experience left to level up, and you have received 115, then 100 units of experience will disappear. The transition to the next level is purchased for Gold. Otherwise, the experience stops accumulating. There are no restrictions on leveling up heroes in the game. 
 
After every fifth level, special hero perks become available, which you can purchase for Gold at your request. The absence of the previous perk, in most cases, does not affect the receipt of subsequent ones. Perks of heroes are valuable skills that greatly facilitate the passage of the game. 
 
Do not spare the Gold for upgrading heroes – all your investments will be justified when passing difficult levels.

AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
If the slot is occupied, the card you selected will replace the previous one. Please note that you cannot use two cards with the same properties! For example, the game will not allow you to simultaneously insert cards that give +20% and +80% to the rate of fire of the house. 
 
You can sell unnecessary cards for Crystals. To do this, hook the card and drag it to the Sell field that appears. 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
For a Simple card, you will get 20 Crystals, for Improved – 40, for Rare – 60, for Epic – 80, for Legendary – 100. Please note that it is not possible to return the sold cards!

Attack on the sector

 
Starting from chapter 3, the player gets access to repel attacks on the sector. Do not be afraid of the name “attack” – this is just a daily bonus. You have to go through the selected area of the game to get a reward of Gold and Crystals. 
 
After receiving the Daily Reward, a portrait of the main villain appears in the upper-right corner. Click on it, and the game will tell you the number of the attacked sector and the number of resources required for its passage. 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Click on the Go button, and you will immediately find yourself on the chapter you need. The attacked sector is marked by a helicopter.

The droid moves at a low speed but has a high health reserve and heavy armor. After destroying the Droid, two smaller copies of it appear, each of which is weaker, but faster than the original. In turn, each copy spawns two small, relatively weak, but very fast Droids. 
 
 

Enemies: aircraft and fleet

 

 

Drone

It is a plane with many lives, flying over the map in circles and landing special forces. It distracts the air defense from other targets and depletes the supply of anti-aircraft missiles. 
 

Dirigible

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
Heavily armored and endowed with a large health reserve, the airship slowly flies along the road, taking on-air defense strikes. A squad of airships can deplete the supply of anti-aircraft missiles, which will lead to a breakthrough of aviation to the player’s base. 
 

Jumper

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is an aircraft moving along the roads. It can fly over any tower, except for the air defense and the siege house. 
 

Tribola

Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
This is a well-protected helicopter that carries of paratroopers. Moves along roads can fly over any tower, except for air defense and holograms. 
 

Clover

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is a plane, flying crosswise over the battlefield twice and dropping bombs on the base on its third pass. 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 

 
As it is classified as stealth, the clover is affected by the air defense perks “Invisible drawings” and “Priority: invisible”. It can pose a significant threat with weak air defense. To successfully destroy these aircraft, you should place the air defense towers in the center of the map. 
 

Rotorcraft

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is a well-protected aircraft moving along the roads; it drops special forces on the move. 
 

Chameleon

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is an invisible plane, circling the field three times, then striking the base. It can enter the stealth mode for a short time, during which the air defense cannot attack it with missiles. The Chameleon is affected by the air defense perks “Invisible Blueprints” and “Priority: Invisible”. 
 

Rat

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is an aircraft that deactivates defensive towers for an extended time. It has a high flight speed. Immediately after hitting the tower, it switches to a new target. It is extremely dangerous because it can paralyze the player’s defense for a short period. 
 

Fighter

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
It is fast aircraft, flying around the field three times in a circle before striking the base. Due to the high speed, it is a threat to players with poorly upgraded air defense, if their missiles are not able to catch up with the Fighter. To avoid it, you should timely purchase perks increasing the flight speed of anti-aircraft missiles. 
 

Barracuda

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Aviation 
Vulnerability: air defense 
Moving along the roads, a heavily armored aircraft can change the altitude of the flight. 
When Barracuda rises into the sky, it is attacked by the air defense. When it descends to the ground, it is fired by the rest of the towers. 
Resistant to tank fire, it passes over mines without harming itself. High survivability and the ability to walk at low altitude makes the Barracuda a dangerous opponent. 
 

Guided Missile Cruiser

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Type: Fleet 
Vulnerability: ASG 
It is a heavily armored ship firing missiles at the base. The player is notified of its appearance and route in advance, during the previous attack. This unit moves to the point indicated on the map and begins firing at the base, launching missiles one after another. Only ASG can fire on it, but it is possible to use airstrikes, katanas, and sequoias on the Missile Cruiser. If you destroy a Missile Cruiser before the missile that took off hits the base, it explodes in the air. 
 
 

Roads and slots

 

 

Roads

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
All enemy units, except for planes and ships, move only along the roads, choosing the shortest path to the base. Blocking the road forces opponents to choose a new route. If the existing road is the only one, the game will not allow you to block it. 
 

Expressways

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Enemy units gain significant acceleration moving along these roads. Try not to let the opponents in these areas! 
 

Slots

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
In the slots, the player can build their towers. All slots are also roads. 
 

Reinforced and weakened slots

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 

 
Green ammo slots give your guns a +50% damage bonus. The towers built on them visually look larger than those standing on regular slots. Red skull slots reduce the damage of defenders by 50%. A tower standing on such a slot looks smaller than those built on usual slots. 
 

Changing slots

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Before each attack, the two towers located on them are randomly swapped. If there is only one tower, it can be moved to any other changing slot. 
 

Teleports

 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Teleports connect different parts of the map; each of them has a pair of the same color. Carefully plan your onslaught because some levels, due to teleports, turn into a maze! 
 
 

General tips

 
The ability to create new routes is a feature of the AOD, which opens up extensive tactical possibilities. Try to make the enemies go in the most distant way. So, they will stay within the range of the towers for as long as possible. Create an alternative route and drive your enemies back and forth, blocking their way! 
 
You should acquire all the heroes as soon as possible, so that they begin to gain experience. Upgraded heroes will considerably strengthen your defense! 
 
Try to develop your towers equally, without getting carried away by upgrading any one of them. Among the many perks in the skill tree, choose the ones that you need. 
 
When passing through the Fog mode, use the radar-it reveals a much larger territory than other types of towers. Build radars before launching your first attack. 
 
No one but Mr. Evil knows the true purpose of the project “Inola”… 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
However, it doesn’t matter since “Inola” in AOD is a plot element. It does not have any effect on the gameplay. Though, the assembly of its modules brings some resources. 
 
The flash drives needed to build the “Inola” are scattered around the global map. The levels where they are hidden are marked with a special icon. 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
 
AOD: Art Of Defense - Guide 
Do not forget to click on the flash during the battle – it is large and noticeable! 
 
Can’t pass the level? Study the map carefully and review your strategy. Complete the previous levels in all modes to gain experience to level up your heroes and Gold to upgrade your towers. Patience and judgment are your best helpers (and not only in computer games).
