Since the site launched, Gaming-fans.com has looked to educate gamers about games that our writers love to play. Over the past few years we have been able to expand from just a single game to several different mobile games including Avatar: Pandora Rising, after getting to preview APR at FoxNext Games in Los Angeles in September 2019. Below we take a look at our Best Avatar PR Commanders series where we break down the different commanders and resources in hopes that the data and our advice will help your gameplay in Avatar: Pandora Rising.
Spinecone is a resource in Avatar: Pandora Rising that is important to the Na’vi. The gathering of Spinecone, whether from a Rally or an individual commander on their own, provides the Spincone Needles needed to make the Spine Shield which is important in early gameplay. As your game progresses, Spinecone Needles are one of two ingredients in War Paint which is essential in leveling up your troops for higher levels of competition.
Spinecone can be acquired by any commander in Avatar: Pandora Rising who has the Gatherer tag, however two commanders specialize in Spinecone – Alira and Ukawla. So who is the best Na’vi Commander to gather Spinecone? Let’s look at their stats.
Alira – Alira is the early open commander in APR who is labeled as Uncommon. Her Gather Speed at solo Spincone Thicket sites ranges from +5% to +30% with her Spinecone Gather Skill at +20 to +110. At Spinecone Thicket Rally Sites her speed ranges from +10% to +30% while her Gather Skill is +40 to +110. Finally, on defense Alira adds +5 to +30 to the Sentry Tower and +2 to +24 to All Troops at a Spinecone Thicket.
Ukawla – Ukawla is a Epic commander who gathers Spinecone with +12% at Level 1 of his Thicketweaver ability and can advances to as much as 40%. His Spinecone Gather Skill ranges from +40 at Level 1 to +150. Because he has multiple specialities, these stats apply to any Spinecone Thicket site. On defense Ukwla adds +6 to +30 to all Towers and +10 to +60 to the Champion troop at any gathering site, but since she also has the Swift tag she also adds +45% to +230% Travel Speed.
So we ask again, who is the best Na’vi Commander to gather Spinecone?
Ukawla gets the nod here as the best Na’vi Commander to gather Spinecone, but the gap between the Epic and Uncommon characters is not huge. The key reasons Ukawla gets the title are her versatility in being able to specialize in two different resources and the slightly higher gathering stats at Spinecone Thicket sites. While Alira remains a fantastic character for early play and continues to remain relevant later in the game, if you are fortunate enough to get Ukawla in Avatar: Pandora Rising it would be wise to level her up.
