Attacking Strategies Edit
- If a base has full resource producers such as farms or caravans, use raiders against them so you can reap all of its resources.
- If resource storage buildings such as the mill or market has a lot of loot, try bring in an army composition of raiders.
- Surprisingly, Raiders are strong against enemy infantry and can hold up in a fight.
Defensive Strategy Edit
- Raiders make good alliance troops. When the enemy spawns troops, Raiders will rush to the scene to deal with them. Their high hitpoints keep them in the fight longer than infantry units.
Lightly-armed mounted soldiers, called scouts, are often the first to see combat. They often take advantage of an unprepared enemy, raiding weakpoints and destroying valuable resources and equipment. They also provide valuable information to their commander.
