Lords Online City Defense Guide



Lords Online City Defense Guide by Royale33

Introduction

A defensive approach is one of the main strategies used in Lords Online. In a defensive approach, the player focuses on defense, which means he builds up fortifications and defensive troops with the goal of his city being able to successfully defend himself. The defensive approach is recommended for players who aren’t online all the time, players that have lots of enemies, and alliance leaders and vice-leaders.

Pros
– Safer than an attacking approach.
– Players have a better chance of lasting longer.
– Even if troops are wiped out, they are still doing moderately good due to the fortifications

Cons
– Usually they do not attack much.
– It can be hard to get people to attack you.

If you decide you are fine with the pros and cons! I suggest you try this strategy out!

This guide contains three sections:

– First Steps
– Upgrading Buildings
– Fortifications and Troops

*IMPORTANT*
These three sections MUST be done in order for this guide to work…

First Steps

So you want to be a leader for Lords Online in defense? Before you can start dominating the game, you must first do the simple steps to give you solid ground and give you a head start.

Time Needed To Finish This Section: One Hour to Five Hours

This section will help you get solid resource production and give you solid foundations for becoming a leader in defense.

*Important*
This is mostly following the “Newbie Quests” and “Leveling Quests” By completing the Quests, you will gain resources usually as a reward…but make sure you have leveled up your warehouses and barns enough to store the resources gained, or else you will not receive them!

If you run low on resources and cannot continue, remember to accept the rewards for the quest!

2.) Build a warehouse and a barn and level each of them to level 5.
