Our latest ClashMob Elite member is Epic Gamer Tam, who is active on our Infinity Blade forums and known as TamL.  We’ve asked her about her favorite equipment and tips for other ClashMob players:

image_zpse885e0dfGamecenter ID: ~ TamL ~
Name:
Tam
Level:
2085
Favorite weapon:
Solar Trans-OX
Favorite weapon class: Dual
Favorite gem:
XP 125%
Tips:
Keep improving your skills and everything’s possible. Check out the forum for great guides and advice from friendly members. I wouldn’t have reached the level I am today without the awesome forum community.

I recommend New Game+ to those who’ve mastered everything on the original game, it’s heaps of fun to infinitely level and build up your characters stats. Master dual and the art of dodging as well as directional blocking with heavy for variety. Most of all enjoy yourself and maybe reach for the goal of the forum’s elite God King Club and Pantheon through lots of practice!
