Defending is certainly much easier to understand than attacking, however you still need to be tactical about it. Allowing others to destroy your troops and steal your resources is a bad thing.
Possibly one of the simplest bits of advice when you’re under attack: use a shield! This will stop all attacks and scouts for the duration of the shield, however it will only protect your fortress. If you have troops out gathering whilst you’re under attack then recall them immediately. Shields can be found in three different durations: 2 hour, 8 hour and 24 hour.
2 hour shield – Useful if you’re in the middle of Kill Event and just want a quick shield without wasting a shield. These can be acquired from seasonal events and stronghold upgrades.
8 hour shield – Main type of shield found throughout the game. These can be acquired through the Item Store (600 gold), Alliance Store (60000 honor points), seasonal events and stronghold upgrades.
24 hour shield – Useful if you’re out for the day or don’t wish to partake in Kill Event. These can be acquired through the Item Store (1000 gold), seasonal events and stronghold upgrades.
When under attack you can reinforce your alliance members stronghold with your troops. This boosts your alliance members total troop count and can make the difference between them successfully defending or not. This can be done whilst under a shield, so comes in handy if you’re under attack during Kill Event and want points. Troops killed in an alliance members castle still go to your hospital, much like if your own stronghold was attacked.
