If you are starting defensively and you are being attacked by a Swordswrath(s)

500 Gold
0 Mana

(If only one Swordswrath is attacking)

Hire a Castle Archer (-300 Gold)

Have both your miners mine gold (+300, takes about seven secs)

Train a Swordswrath and have it counter-attack.

SCENARIO A.If it dies, the enemy will either :

(A) Garrison the Swordswrath

(B) Start capturing the Obelisk

(C) Push forward

To counter these :

[A] If the enemy doesn't appear, just build up your economy. There is really no counter to this, but it does keep you off the hook for a bit.

This can be a problem. My advice is attack with another swordswrath and try to capture the obelisk yourself. If they have an Archidon, then you should retreat and save up for a spearton. If they have two or three Swordswrath, train your own and attack. If you get the first hit, you should be fine. And if they venture too close, then your castle archer can snipe them down.

[C] If you have the Castle Archer, you should be fine. If they have an army, you will sustain some damage to your castle. Remember, if they have an army, [B]GARRISON YOUR MINERS. It helps if you garrison them before they reach the first gold field.

2 - If your Swordswrath defeats the other, scout ahead. If they only have miners, then hack away. If they have a castle archer, there is a big chance that your swordswrath will die, so it is really option for you. If they have a swordswrath in reserve, stay away.


They appear with a Swordswrath and an Archidon.

Your swordswrath will probably die, so be prepared to get those miners into the safety of garrison. Your castle archer can take care of the Swordswrath, but the Archidon will probably retreat and capture the obelisk.

actually, just train a castle archer.its enough.for smart people they will retreat once they see a castle archer.with 3-4 hits they should be dead.

I don't even bother castle archers after I got my speartons.(Honestly)
