Being Attacked

Let's start by saying you're going to be attacked. It's part of the game. It's kind of the whole point of the game. You will be attacked. Period.

What should I do if I'm attacked?
• Don't try to "handle it" alone. Let your guild know. You're stronger as a team. Your leader and R4s can help decide how best to handle it. They might retaliate or tell you to. You might not be strong enough to do so yet if your attacker is part of a very strong guild. If you attack back without consulting anyone, you might get the whole guild attacked.
• Keep calm. It happens. You may lose troops and/or resources. Rebuild, retrain, ask for supplies, and try to minimize your losses next time. There WILL be a next time.

How can I protect my troops?
• SHIELD or SHELTER!! I cannot stress this enough. If you don't have any shields, send your troops and leader to the shelter. If you'll be gone longer than the shield will hold, do both.
• Upgrade your infirmaries. It's cheaper and quicker to heal vs retrain, but anyone who doesn't fit will die. Make sure your infirmaries are big enough to hold as many of your troops as possible so you only suffer wounds instead of deaths.
• Hold a fake rally. Pick a level 5 Darknest or a dead castle and set it for 8 hours.
• Reenforce and/or garrison a guildmate who has a long shield activated.
• There's an attack coming for you and you've done all that, but you've still got more troops than your Infirmaries can hold: RUN. Send them to gather very far away, but don't let them arrive. Withdrawal right before they get there. Just get them out for the attack. Keep them moving.

How can I make myself a less attractive target?
• SHIELD or SHELTER! If there are no troops to hit, it's not as worth it.
• Keep your resources LOW! Only keep on hand what fits in your vault. Gold is only protected at level 25, so don't stock up. Don't open any resources from your bag unless you're using it all right away. If there are no resources to steal, it's not as worth it.
• Don't scout or attack anyone unless you mean it. Randomly attacking will draw attention not only from that player, but potentially their whole guild. Revenge is usually worth it just to watch the place burn - even if there are no troops or resources.

Remember
No matter what you do or how pointless it may seem for someone to attack you, you're going to be attacked. Unless you've got a shield up 24/7, you're going to be attacked. It may even be for no reason whatsoever - just some jerk who thinks it's fun. (That's me!) But you're going to be attacked. Minimize your losses wherever possible, try to be as unattractive a target as possible, and after you get attacked - pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and move on.

Darknest Rallies

T's Ultimate Darknest Rally Guide Victory over a Darknest isn't just about how many troops you send at it. It's about which troops and why. Sure, you might be able to beat it by just throwing a ton of troops at it, but you'll end up with more wounded than necessary. Why Do Darknest Rallies? It's basically free loot. Random, but you don't need to do much for it other than hold the rally correctly and heal some troops. Troops sent to a Darknest will never die unless you don't have room in your Infirmary. There are 5 grades of essence just like gear and heroes and... well, pretty much everything. The grade goes up with the Darknest levels. Level 1 nests give you common up through level 5 nests giving you legendary. Theoretically, the higher the essence, the better the loot. I say theoretically because sometimes you cook an epic one for 12 hours and still get something useless to you and other times you do a common one and get something you need
