Troop Training FAQs

How many, what kind, and why.

⋆ How many of each building type should I have?
• Barracks - I wouldn't recommend getting too carried away with building barracks. Have enough in order to ALWAYS have troops training, however that fits into your schedule. Generally no more than 3. Eventually you're only going to want 1.
• Manors - if you're just starting out, I would say 4-5. Manors increase training speed, which is very valuable when you don't have many troops.
• Infirmaries - as many as possible. Infirmaries are important because healing troops is a fraction of the cost. Have the minimum of barracks and manors that function for you and then fill every other available space with Infirmaries.

⋆ How many should I train?
• Infantry, Ranged, and Cavalry: minimum of max march for each type
• Seige: 10% to 20% of max march
• After that, pick one or two troop types and train them constantly. ALWAYS have troops training.

⋆ What is "Maximum March"?
• Max march is max army size (click castle) plus the hero command boost (under hero battle skills) for the number of heros you can send (click castle, click i).
• Easy way to find it: click rally on a Darknest. Assign heros. Use the number you can send.

⋆ Can you give me an example?
This castle is C14. My max army size is 56k. I can send 4 heros with this size castle. My 4 best heros are Rank 4 and can command 1,440 each. My maximum march is 61,760.

So, I keep at least 62k on hand of each main troop type and about 7k of siege. Then once that min is reached, I pick one or two troop types to specialize in and only build those troop types. If I get perms in the other types, upgrade my castle, or upgrade my heros, I rebuild to max march before continuing training my specialized troops.

⋆ Why?
It's good to have all troop types on hand for situations you need counters for, like DNs and enemy rallies. But it's also good to specialize in one troop type so you can max your gear, talents, and research in that one type for ultimate impact.

⋆ Which Tiers?
Your choice, but I only keep T1s and T3s on hand. Once I unlock T3s, I do not replace the T2s ever and only replace the T1s once I've got a full march of each T3 type. Some do T2s instead of T1s.

⋆ What about Siege?
Do not train siege evenly with they other troop types. They are only to take down walls and you don't need many. In fact, later on in the game you're rarely going to even use siege.

⋆ How can I train troops faster?
You can boost training speed using Manors, talents, research, and turf boosts.

Don't do any of this if you're building a trap. That's a whole different ball game.

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

Army Capacity vs Army Size vs Army Limit

What is the difference between Army Capacity, Army Size, and Army Limit? They all sound kind of similar, but what do they actually mean and how do you increase them? Army Capacity Army Capacity is the amount of resources a troop can carry. You can increase it with talents, research, and gear.This statistic is only about carrying resources, but it is applicable for all situations where you would carry them. So if you're gathering from a tile or raiding a castle, increasing this number will mean you can use less troops to carry the same amount of resources. Increasing Army Capacity Army Size Army Size is the number of soldiers you can add to your army. The number of troops you can send is determined by your castle level, plus the command of any heroes sent with that army. You can increase this with Castle Level and Hero Rank. You can also temporarily boost it by using a Max Army Size Turf Boost. Army Limit Army Limit is the number of different grou
