The best piece of advice

Recently I met a very old and well-renowned League Marshal. We had an interesting and insightful conversation about the Leagues of Darkshine. I asked him what he usually advises newcomers to do, and he told me this:


1. Always do your 10 Raids... A Raid not done is a waste.

2. Upgrade your Warehouses and Barns to the maximum Level.

3. If you ever need Resources, let people know how much you need.

4. If you see that your Warehouse or Barn is reaching the limit, give some Resources to someone who needs them.


What is the best piece of advice you have ever gotten from, or given to, your League?

LOL "Upgrade your warehouses and barns to the maximum level then tell people how much resources you have"... Is this a guide on how to become a farm?  When I find people who do this I raid them until they quit, that way I can farm their sector for resources at my leisure. 

My best advice:  look where a beacon is before attacking it.  If a beacon is in a top league's area and some small league is holding it, they probably have an agreement with the big league (or just recently took it, and are about to get smashed). If you take the beacon from the small league and try to hold it, the big league is probably going to get mad at you.  And while the response "but we didn't take it from you, we took it from somebody else" may be true, it won't make your troops any less dead...

Well said. Try to save up your offense and and don't fight everyone if you're new. if your in a league make sure you's are not fighting everyone and you's are only getting stronger to make a strong alliance or join one for beacon protection. This is because if you're not in a top league your league might never be unless they do this and it will help attract players who do pay to play the game if you're free to play read this even if your not you could use the head start before you start spending Saphires. If your a old player and you're in a dead end league or one with a really low amount of league achievements then you should read the guide and train every person who joins personally and ask your league to help. develop a lone term plan to pass leagues that older than you. If you're a old player and know most of everything don't get complacent be the example finish what you started fight and never lose your conviction. You should play to be the best player and have the best league This game needs new Lords and new leagues who will become the best with new players who became a lord today and tommorow leading them now and forever. Everyones just going with the flow not many new challengers they get snatched up quick and recruited nothing wrong with that but you're just a 3rd man you need to be the first and the third.

I think the best advice I was given as a new player was to level up my Catacombs. As a low level player with only low level troop types available, slow recruit times, and limited resources, you have no chance against a higher level player's troops. Your best option is to dodge attacks, raid as often as you can to supplement resources, and spend your resources down to stay under the Catacombs protection level.  Building your troops up while under your bubble protection is also advised. 
I think, therefore I game.

What I noticed with maxed cata is attacker still gets a % of resources, even if you lose nothing. When the object is to not be worth farming, that sometimes isn't good enough since they still get resources, even if they are phantom resources and you lose nothing.  This is especially true with new players since even 1k of each res can seem like a good haul (when they get more troops and discover bots, then any raid less than full load might be considered a waste, but when still getting started, its a different story).  If the player thinks they are getting a good haul from you, they'll keep on farming you.

Best advice I was given as a new player was to keep spent down and keep your stuff in cata as much as possible since bigger players will attack for the PvP and if you have stuff worth hitting out (or if they get decent resources from hitting you), they'll keep on farming you til you quit or wise up.

  • to fly under the radar till strong enough to hit back, in case of raids. 

  • to be patient to take the time to upgrade resources buildings to 15 at least.

  • if the league has a scroll bank, make the most of it, lost arts is the key to steady progression.

  • pick battles wisely.

when you first start always have your barns a higher level than warehouses then when people raid they get more food than gold and iron


level up your town hall so that the build times are reduced for all other buildings


level up catacomb and infirmary to both protect resources and enable the maximum allowed revival of lost troops from attacks


spend down resources before logging off


never risk more than you are willing to lose for pvp (attack & defend)


log in daily - raid daily - build daily

The best advice for a newb is to Upgrade its building and lost arts as called out in Quest. And if you are going to upgrade Barns and warehouse before upgrading townhouse it going to consume more time. but Actually the Quest gives us rewards if we upgrade according to it. Daily raids are necessary. try to be active. Play smart not to engage in fight with bully.

Concentrate on offense and defense strength.. increase that faster than the level.. at lower levels if you have more offense and defense you can get on top of conquests at lower levels easily... at lower levels it is easier to get to the top of the conquests and get a lot of sapphires.. so play smart..

Best advice given:


- Dont send everything at the BG's

- Dont attack with defense

- Support your legends

- No your sage isnt inept, it takes that long to research lost arts

- Pushing your raids doesnt mean dragging your mouse over a bot over and over

- PM's not PMS

- The more troops you have the merrier

- Do your raids but dont raid allies... Edited to dont raid top leagues with 4-5 times the number of players

- Fiefs are free game... edited... people get pissed if u take all their fiefs so semi-free game


That about sums it up.

1. Bite the bullet and buy the $5 construction pack for extra craftsmen, wait min of 3 weeks between each purchase or you will pay $50 for that same $5 pack.

2. Your first in-game sapphire purchase should be the "Altar of Weor".


3. Don't spend sapphires on anything that dies.


4. Never mistake level as an indication of power.


5. Spy always, a soon as you get your castle moved to a good resource location keep a full time queue of silent ones.

Why would you raid people until they quit?  The fewer people playing, the less interesting the game.  You max your warehouses and barns to USE those resources to build strong troops and upgrade buildings and lost arts.  You max your resource producers too.

Don't become personally attached to fiefs.  Don't look at them as extensions of your personal castle. They're not.  When you adopt this philosophy, you're a lot happier in game.  Fiefs don't give much at all in tribute, they are far more valuable as raids so they will get raided.  Accept that.  Siege another, or resiege that one.  Just don't go to war because someone raided your fief.  

Everyone else has covered the essentials. Focus on player development in the early days and don't do offensive actions and do protect your resources and troops throughout.  

Grind.  Every day.  Keep the sages working round the clock, keep the build ques as full as you can all the time. 

Never react in an emotional state. That's how they beat you.
