My Attack Force:
1 Level 11 Hero
Familair Level 1 Barb Defense:
Attackers win, total casualties â€¦ 100 Warriors
Returning with: 55K Gold, 100K Food, 100K Lumber, 100K Stone, 100K Iron
If I hadnâ€™t sent the Warriors at all, I donâ€™t think I would have lost anything â€¦ I just couldnâ€™t believe that, so I included them just in case. of course, they rushed in and were picked off by the traps. The key is that with Archery lvl 6 (which I have), the Barb city archers canâ€™t reach the Ballistae â€¦ theyâ€™re sitting ducks. If you happen to have a lvl 1 Barb city very close to you, I donâ€™t have to tell you how important a discovery this is.
Iâ€™ll keep posting these as I figure out how many Ballistae are necessary for each level of Barb town. Gonna run this one over and over again for awhile though to finance research. I think I want Archery lvl7 before venturing on to lvl 2 Barb towns. But 55K Gold in exchange for 100 (or possibly 0) Warriors is a trade any of us would make all day long â€¦ and I plan to do so!
Lvl 1 Barb Town â€” 25 Ballistae, 35 Transports (100K Food, 55K Gold, 20K each of Lumber, Stone and Iron)
Lvl 2 Barb Town â€” 50 Ballistae, 50 Transports (200K Food, 65K Gold, 30K each of Lumber, Stone and Iron)
OK, now with Archery 7 â€¦ and Iâ€™ll keep updating as I confirm with successful hits!
Lvl 3 Barb Town – 175 Ballistae, 150 Transports (900K Food, 75K Gold, 75K each of Lumber, Stone and Iron)
Lvl 4 Barb Town – 250 Ballistae, 250 Transports (1.6 mil Food, 300K Gold, 120K each of Lumber, Stone and Iron)
OK, Archery 9 / HBR 9 â€¦ supposedly Iâ€™m invincible now up to lvl 5 Barbs â€¦ hereâ€™s what I got:
Lvl 5 Barb Town – 500 Ballistae, 445 Transports (3 mil Food, 450K Gold, 180K each of Lumber, Stone and Iron)
Level 5 is supposedly the highest you can go and suffer 0 losses (without catapults, anyway).Â If I come up with a way to effectively hit a lvl 6 such that the losses are acceptable then Iâ€™ll post here, but for now I think this concludes my research for a while.
Itâ€™s also worth pointing out that there is considerable Hero experience to be had here.Â Level 1â€™s and 2â€™s donâ€™t offer much, but youâ€™ll get 40K for a level 3, 41K for a level 4 and a whopping 93K for a level 5.Â Continual hits will make your heroes beastly in no time!
