Defensive Troops

In tribal wars defensive villages are the base to hold your resources and villages against other players. This also give you a mutual understanding in your tribe while you support your friends in your tribe. I strongly suggest you to make your first village as  defensive village.

Note:Build Defensive and offensive villages in 3:1 ratio.

Here are the 3 main defensive village troop builds, and i will discuss the advantages of each of these builds.

Build 1; Foot Defence (10’000 Swords/Spears)
General Defence: 910,000 = 125% of Build 2, 99% of Build 3
Cavalry Defence: 980,000 = 135% of Build 2, 123% of Build 3
Time to build: 1,950,000 seconds = 32,500 minutes

This build is the best in terms of defence per farm space, and can easily take out a full nuke on its own. The downside is it takes 45 days to build with a level 25 barracks (on a speed 1 world) which is a huge amount of time. Also, this build takes a long time to move around to support villages, this isn’t too big a problem if you keep your villages clustered.

Build 2; Cavalry Defence (8’000 Spears, 2’000 Heavy Cavalry)
General Defence: 728,000 = 80% of Build 1, 79% of Build 3
Cavalry Defence: 728,000 = 74% of Build 1, 91% of Build 3
Time to build: 748,000 seconds = 12,466.7 minutes

This is a popular defensive choice, as it takes far less time to build then a foot defence, in fact it only takes 17 days to build, which is a third of the time. In essence, you sacrifice 20% of your troop’s effectiveness from a foot defence for a faster building time, and a quicker supporting ability.

Build 3; Hybrid Defence (7’000 Spear and Swords, 1’000 Heavy Cavalry)
General Defence: 917000 –> 100.7% of Build 1, 126% of Build 2
Cavalry Defence: 798,000 –> 81% of Build 1, 110% of Build 2
Time to build: 1,365,000 seconds = 22,750 minutes

This is also a fairly popular defensive build, as it takes 31 days, which is approximately 2/3 of the time required to build a foot defence. This build as you can see is good for axe heavy nukes, but not brilliant for cavalry heavy ones.
