Fake Rallies

Using rallies to protect troops.

Key Factors
• Must be set for 8hrs
• If you're using a Darknest, it should be a level 5
• If you're using a castle, it is recommended you use an inactive one
• If someone in the guild sets a rally for 8hrs or you see an ongoing rally for more than 1hr - DO NOT JOIN
• Don't send your leader. He's safer in the shelter.

The Details
Once you have filled your shelter, the next option to protect additional troops is a “fake rally” or “ghost rally”.

A normal rally is used to attack another player or Darknest in the future after a set period of time. This allows other members of your guild to join the fight. Rallies can be set for 5 min, 10 min, 1 hour, or 8 hours.

Fake rallies are only used for protection. It's really the only time anyone will set a rally for 8 hours unless they're tracking an enemy. As long as no one else joins and you've set the rally on an appropriate target, nothing bad will happen.

Set the rally:
• Select your target
• Select Rally Attack
• Add troops
• Add heros or use a max army scroll to add more troops

What happens?
So, what happens to your troops while they wait for the 8 hour timer to count down? Well, they are completely protected just like the troops in your shelter. All you need to do is log back into your account within 8 hours and cancel the rally. You can then immediately set a new rally if you need to.

Your troops will never leave your turf but will be completely protected while you are offline. They're right there and ready should you need them. Just like the shelter, this allows you to protect your max march of troops plus any hero or scroll bonuses.

Selecting a Target
If you are using a Darknest, make sure you use a level 5 as your target. If you choose a lower level Darknest, you not only take away viable options for real rallies, but you also run the risk of another guild defeating that Darknest. If they do, your troops will return home.

This is less likely to happen with a level 5 Darknest. Still possible, but less likely. Especially if you scout the nest first and it's mixed. Using 1s - 4s is very risky. Plus it just confuses people. If you set a rally on a level 2 Darknest and don't come back for 7 hours, people are very likely to think it's real and join. A level 5? Not so much. Especially if you're not a rally leader.

Castles, however, are a better option for a fake rally. If you are using a castle as a target, it's best if it is empty and inactive. The primary reason is because even if no one else joins your rally, it will march at the end of the timer. So be aware of that and prepare for it when creating your fake rally.

The secondary reason is because guilded castles are not likely to be empty and guildmates can reinforce it. Also, you might accidentally make a new enemy for your guild by choosing the wrong castle.

Other reasons it is good to use a castle are because there is practically zero confusion as to if it is real or fake and you can use a target very far away and you'll have that extra time of marching there and marching home to get back online.

Just Don't
Do not join other people's fake rallies!! If you do, your troops will be stuck there until the host comes back online and cancels it or the timer runs down. If the timer runs down, the troops will attack the target and you'll end up with troops in the Infirmary if it was a Darknest or wounded and dead of it was a castle and the host didn't make sure it was dead first. If you want to protect your troops using a fake rally, create your own.

Don't use a fake rally to protect your leader. Too many ways it could accidentally go wrong. If you're not shielded, put him in the shelter. Period.

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

Can I Take This Hit?

Can I Take This Hit? Alright, let's do the math. I loathe maths, so you're lucky I like you guys. The ratio for troops is: 1 T4 = 1.5 T3s 1 T4 = 2.25 T2s 1 T4 = 4.5 T1s 1 T3 = 1.5 T2s 1 T3 = 3 T1s 1 T2 = 2 T1s Now that's the base troop. No research, no talents, no nothing. Without an army boost scroll the max a 25 castle can send is 250k. Castle max of 200k plus 5 Rank 8 heros at 10k each. With a 50% scroll, it's 375k. Eating a Rally Level 25 Battle Hall holds 2m plus the leader's troops. So, let's pretend the leader popped a scroll and they actually fill it. Also pretend they fill it with T4s. That's 2,375,000 troops. If every single one of them is a T4, you'll need a minimum of: 2,375,000 T4s or 3,562,500 T3s or 5,343,750 T2s or 10,687,500 T1s Now that doesn't include the leader's research, talents, gear, any ATK boost scrolls, 10% Army ATK from having a 25 Battle Hall, prisoners, alter boosts, or any titles. You'

Heros: Types, Grades, Levels, & Ranks

There are four different types of characteristics that are important determining factors of various aspects of a hero. - Attribute type determines which basic attribute increases ATK. - Grade determines the boost percentage of the Battle Skills. - Level determines the amounts for the Hero Skill bonuses and the ability to equip Trophies. - Rank unlocks Battle and Hero Skills and Trophies affect the hero's statistics. For monster hunting, hero stages, and the Colosseum, heroes with a higher level and rank tend to be more important than heroes with a higher grade. Grade does also add to their statistics, so a higher grade is better than a lower grade, but in general, grade is not a huge factor for anything but their Battle Skill %. The opposite is also true. If you're looking at Battle Skills, a hero with a higher grade will be more effective than a hero at a higher level or rank. Rank does increase command, which will ultimately give you more troops and a hero with
