Attacking a Presidio alone is like having dinner with sharks. The sharks are the ones having dinner. Ye get me?

Put yer spicy Rum aside and spare a couple of minutes to read some useful tips on Massed Attacks.

1. A Massed Attack is initiated only by courageous sailors and is supported by two cutthroats from the same Brotherhood.

2. Only Brotherhood Leaders, Brotherhood Advisers, Commodores, and Swashbucklers are authorized to organize and deploy Massed Attacks and manage their Brotherhood Member's Crew.

3.I see that ye arrr gleefully rubbing yer hands. Hold your horses! A Massed Attack cannot be used to blockade enemy Havens, they may be used only to capture Targets or attack Presidios.

4. Yer Units arrr influenced only by yer own bonuses, even though yer troops arrr fighting side by side. On the bright side though, yer Units won't become weaker in case yer lazy Maties did not upgrade their Units.

5. Offence Enhancers. If one of yer Maties made a pile and activated this powerful extra, ye won't get any benefits. Captain, let me say this again: yer Units - yer bonuses. Savvy?

I get the "your units, your bonuses" but how about the participants' bonuses as to their own units? Will their bonuses still apply to their own units when they have arrived on the haven of the one doing the mass attack?

Ahoy Captain! That's right. Their bonuses apply to their own units, even when the Units of other 2 Captains arrive on the Haven of the Captain who initiates Massed Attack. If ye have any other questions, please let me know.

if you're a brotherhood leader you can, the brotherhoodleader has an option to return all units from a presidio, but this only returns offensive units to their owners.

Redbeard is correct and incorrect. By default it is only the BH leader who can authorize the return of OFFENSIVE units. However as you can see the third option available is to grant this ability to others. If doing so only rank I would suggest are Advisors.  Remember though to do this immediately after capping a presidio. Also you may need to do this periodically when players send daggers to presidios. And yes it happens. Unfortunately we don't have this function available to us for the bastions.






The only bonuses that apply to all are Knowledge but remember this only applies if they've been in the BH for 7 days. Also any boost from BH achievements are also granted to all players of your BH. Both are reasons to pay attention to your bastion and BH achievements





One suggestion though on BH rules be sure to lay down the law on attacking presidios or bastions. Swashbuckler and above are only capable of sending massed attacks but all ranks are capable of going it solo.
