Cookie Run: Kingdom– Kingdom Builder & Battle RPG game is a new addition to the famous Cookie Run RPG game series. The game is about building a dream Cookie Kingdom while fighting against evil desert monsters. It is important to know how to make a good team. You can have a team of the best damage dealers in the game but without healers or tanks, your team would die pretty easily. Additionally, your team’s power level is just a guide; having a higher power level than the enemy team doesn’t guarantee that you would win. This article will help you find out how to make a winning team composition in the Cookie Run Kingdom.
Understanding the Basic Team Structure
Generally, your team would need a tank, two area damage dealers, and a healer. The slot for the fifth cookie is up to you and what you think you’ll need for the level you’re fighting. It can be an extra cookie from one of these categories, or a more “unique” cookie, like Almond or Vampire.
In the picture above, the tank is Hollyberry Cookie, the damage dealers are Sea Fairy Cookie and Frost Queen Cookie, and the two healers are Cotton Cookie and Pure Vanilla Cookie.
These are the cookies that absorb damage for the rest of your team. They have a higher HP and defense than normal, but a weaker damage output. Usually, you will only ever need one tank, and using two tanks in a team is only for special occasions, like the Super Mayhem game mode where your team has a cooldown in between matches so two tanks would be more beneficial than two healers, which can’t help heal your team because they’re still waiting for their skill to load.
Tanks will help keep off the damage from your other cookies, especially your damage dealers, which tend to be weaker. If you’re using Summoner Comp you can get by without a tank, but we’ll get to that later
Tanks fall under the Defense and Charge classes. Examples of tanks would be:
- Hollyberry Cookie
- Strawberry Crepe Cookie
- Dark Choco
- Kumiho Cookie
Area Damage Dealers
These are your main attackers. It’s important to keep them alive as long as possible, so that’s why you’ll need tanks and healers to help support them. You will need at least two damage dealers in a team.
You can opt for three, but any higher is inadvisable unless you’re using a reverse bait team in the arena, where you hide the front and rear cookies so it looks like you have a normal team structure while having a high power level, scaring off potential attackers. DPS cookies are usually Bombers, Ranged, Magic, and Ambush. Examples would be:
- Sea Fairy Cookie
- Twizzly Gummy Cookie
- Frost Queen Cookie
- Black Raisin Cookie
Finally, you have your healer cookies. Usually, you’ll only need one of them, but you can use two if just one healer isn’t keeping your team alive. It’s useful for longevity, like in the arena or in really tough PVE battles. Also, support cookies have their own buffs, so using two support cookies that can heal would provide your team with more bonus effects.
Cookie classes that can heal are Healers and Support (not all supports can heal, so be sure to check their skill description.) Here are some examples of healers:
- Pure Vanilla Cookie
- Herb Cookie
- Parfait Cookie
- Cotton Cookie
Best Team Comps in Cookie Run: Kingdom
Knowing the basic team structure is important, but there are other types of teams in the game too. While you would only use one team for most game modes, Super Mayhem and Alliance Mode require you to use more than one team of cookies, so having multiple good teams is necessary.
These game modes are for more experienced players though, so if you’re only starting out you should just focus on building your main PVP and PVE team more.
1. Summoners comp
Just as the name suggests, this team comp uses summoner cookies. Cotton is important for this team comp because she buffs all summoned creatures’ attacks with her skill for a short period of time. Since this team has so many summoned creatures already, a tank isn’t necessary because the creatures would take up all the damage for your cookies.
You won’t need a tank for this team, so you can add another healer or area damage dealer. Your treasures for this comp should be Seamstress’s Pin Cushion (boosts summoned creature ATK and duration length), Squishy Jelly Watch (helps you summon more frequently because of the reduced cooldown), and Old Pilgrim’s Scroll (boosts cookie ATK).
2. Speed Comp
These cookies aren’t really used individually, but together they make a pretty powerful team. Lilac Cookie‘s skill boosts allies, making them deal more damage the higher their ATK speed is. Mint Choco Cookie heals while giving the team an ATK speed boost, and Pastry Cookie’s ATK Speed increases while she’s using her skill. Madeleine Cookie is a good front for this team because they are more offensive than defensive.
Your fifth cookie can be a healer (for example Sparkling Cookie, which boosts crit chance) or an additional tank like Cocoa Cookie or Strawberry Crepe Cookie for more defense. Your treasures for this comp should be Squishy Jelly Watch, Old Pilgrim’s Scroll, and Librarian’s Enchanted Robes. It’s important that your Librarian’s Enchanted Robes treasure is at least level 5, so you can deal high amounts of damage.
3. Scam Comp
Strictly for the arena, this comp doesn’t have a lot of survivability but it packs a great punch. While Gingerbread isn’t useful otherwise after early-game, he has the fastest starting skill cooldown (2 seconds) in the game, which disrupts the enemy team and stuns them.
This is where your second stunner comes in, usually Kumiho (charms enemies, and decreasing their DEF by 30%), but Tiger Lily can work too, although she’s not as effective because she can be countered by Cocoa’s stun immunity skill. Make sure that Kumiho or Tiger Lily has a 3-second starting cooldown by equipping five Swift Chocolate toppings on them.
Your treasures for this comp should be Bear Jelly’s Lollipop (boosts the ATK and crit chance of the cookie with highest ATK), Old Pilgrim’s Scroll, and Librarian’s Enchanted Robes. While on most occasions you’d want to use Jelly Watch, it’s not necessary for this team because your main goal is to start faster than the enemy team, and Jelly Watch doesn’t affect the first cooldown timer. Librarian’s Enchanted Robes would work better for this team. Make sure the Librarian’s Enchanted Robes treasure is buffing Kumiho (or Tiger Lily) because they need to start their skill before the enemy team does.
