What does the Castle defense bonus need to be in order to withstand a Fireball attack? I am wondering since the Fireball attack is 12,600 that the defense mod bonus need to be at least 12,800. Any thoughts?

Captainbently,

Your Castle Defense Bonus increases the defensive performance of any Units your have defending your Castle. Building Fortifications, (Walls, Towers, Gates, Ballistae, etc.) and Improvements increases your Castle's overall Defense Bonus. Keep in mind that your Castle Defense Bonus only helps your Units defend against attacks, and will not help you if you have no defensive force posted at your Castle. Each 100 Defensive points increase your Units' Defensive stats by 1%.

A fireball does not become effected by castle defense, you require units to absorb it. The castle defense only improves your defensive unit's stats

So if I understand you correctly...A fireball hits at 12,600 damage...which is suppose to be spread over all the units. If my castle defense bonus is at 12,800 that equals a multiplier of 1.28 +1 =to a total defense multiplier of 2.28x for all my defensive units. 12,600 (Fire ball damage) divided by the total defense multiplier of 2.28 would be ABOUT 5,526. I would need a defense force = to at least 5,527 with a castle bonus of 12,800 to not get any damage to my units?

ok so 99.6% of battle looses is going to be 0.4% what means 0. So in order to have zero loses from a Fire ball attack I must have 6,5000,000 total defense points in the castle. <<<<<<<That number includes ALL the bonuses added in :)



26,000 / .4% = 6,500,000 in case anyone was wondering where that number came from.

Your Castle Defense Bonus is completely ignored by Fireballs, it is a magical attack and your walls are useless

The ONLY ways to prevent damage from a Sorcery Spell is to keep your units tucked in the Catacombs

Extra information, I haven't done any experiment yet to confirm, but if you fireball someone with offense out, your fireball will do much less damage.

If i were the attacker, i'd be angry.  My fireball didnt kill a weor.....so now my enemy's resource production remains 25% higher and helping him make troops.

You're right. But there is a random component in many formulas. For instance, which Units will die and which will not.

We already have Woer's Protection Spells in our Black Market > Misc > Special .... but the cost is prohibitive, and it only delays the attack.
It would be better if the attacker was not warned that protection was active and the spell absorbed the attack
