I'm attacking level 38 barbarians

FYI, I am attacking level 38 barbarian as I type this, So that others may get an idea of what they will see. Here is the data

Battle for Barbarian Village
(17.12.2015 0:47:47)
Round 1 / 7
David Munter[RIP]
vs
Barbarians

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Steam Giant............................98(-6) - .............................................
Sulphur Carabineer.....................70(-0) - .............................................
Mortar.................................30(-0) - .............................................
Cook...................................20(-0) - .............................................
............................................. - Wall....................................6(-1)
............................................. - Barbarian Ram..........................40(-0)
............................................. - Barbarian-Axe Swinger.................775(-0)
............................................. - Barbarian Knifeman....................300(-0)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Barbarians has joined the battle on the defender's side with the following units:
Barbarian-Axe Swinger: 775, Barbarian Knifeman: 300, Barbarian Ram: 40

David Munter[RIP] is joining the battle on the attacker's side with the following units:
Sulphur Carabineer: 70, Steam Giant: 104, Mortar: 30, Cook: 20

I can pillage :
110,850 Gold
73,680 Wood
33,542 Wine
28,301 Marble
18,868 Crystal
24,109 Sulfur


The combat will take 10-11 rounds . I had balloons swordsmen, more of everything join me in later rounds. But this show you what they have to oppose me. At the moment I can't us my forge, but when it is active my swordsmen have kill nearly three barbarians for each swordsmen lost. Without the forge it's still 60/40.
Last level cost me 12 Steam giants and 161 swordsmen.
I will not be able to carry away all the loot at one time. I have sent my swordsmen and other faster troops to join separately with all cargo ships attached to them. Since it takes time for the barbarian to regenerate, I can launch a second attack that only has their walls to deal with and still have time to pick up the rest of the resources.
I am told that at level 40 the barbarians start getting their catapults which are the equivalent of our mortars. You may want to consider not attacking them after the get to level 38. That way the only have rams and can not breach your level 26 walls. Once you get one of their towns to level 39 go attack another town and build them up to get your loot I figure that with 4 level 38 barbarian towns I can hit each one once per day and bring in 450,000 gold and 800,000 resources a day for a cost of 80 SG's and 600 swordsmen.

The town Port Finale has been pillaged by Barbarians. The following resources have been stolen: 3,058 Building material, 667 Wine, 6,374 Marble, 898 Sulfur

As the only thing left of David Munter[HONOR]'s army were the flight or artillery units, they have withdrawn.

The attackers won the battle because they penetrated the wall and because the defenders did not have any units on site to close the breach.


This was on an island where the barbarian town was only level 15. They do not have catapults on defense, but came up with them on offense. What a revolting development. The town in question has level 35 walls but only slingers in defense. Will have to adjust for that by putting a few SG's , mortars, balloon etc in each town on the island. This was not the town I had been attacking from

Resource Occupation

Has anyone had the barabarians occupy their resource deposits? How do they "and frustrate your resource gathering."?

Barbarians occupy resource points

Yes the barbarian do occupy resource production site, though only luxury resources. It reduces your production by 40%. To clean them out you attack their town but don't get to pillage it. I have actually sent a pillage effort off and had the barbarian "Occupy" while the attack was enroute, turning it into a clearance attack rather than a pillage. I have not seen them occupy resources while a battle was actually taking place, though I have seen them attack my town while I was attacking theirs.

For defense, so far if you have over a level 30 wall, a full line of mortars, a line of balloons and some heavy infantry, you seem to be safe from attack. Their catapults get destroyed before they fire and they don't even scratch the wall. Their infantry just dies out battering against the walls. This works up through level 35 towns, SO FAR!!!

This just happened to me today...

I was on the middle of an attack on the barbarians, I think 3 or 4 rounds into combat, and the barbarians occupied my resources.

Big Ten 22.12.2015 2:05 The barbarians have set their brigands on us. They're siphoning off 40 percent of our luxury resource production on the island of Nopios. We should chase the brigands away as soon as possible!

So, I clicked their village and saw that I could drive them away. Figured it would be worth the try.. So, I sent some mortars and hops. My troops joined combat, and it changed the mission.

Big Ten 22.12.2015 2:48 Your troops have arrived in the city Barbarian Village and are joining the ongoing battle. View combat report.

I freed my resources, but got no pillage, even tho I had 244 ships with the initial attack.

Big Ten 22.12.2015 2:51 We`ve driven the brigands away! Our workers can continue transporting the goods to our towns again as normal.

Barbarians's army has been completely destroyed.

The battle lasted 38 rounds. The barbarian catapults never got a chance to fire. My balloons killed them before they could throw a single shot. It took two rounds to destroy them all. After that the barbarians light and heavy infantry were just beating their heads on the wall. Once my mortars and long distance fighters ran out of ammo, the walls were killing about 7 of the enemy TOTAL each turn. This took place overnight. When I woke up and saw the ongoing attack, it was round 35. I sent additional balloons, artillery and long range fighters to end the fight. Otherwise it would have continued for 20-30 more rounds before the barbarians finally killed them selves off. With no damage to ANY of my units.

The conclusion to be made from this is that with level 33 walls (and probably level 26 walls) and 30 balloons, your town is invulnerable to barbarian attack until they get fighter pilots and balloons of their own. So far I have not seen that happen. Also noted was the fact that allies in your town do participate in the defense, even though they can't join you in attacking the barbarian town itself.

They definitely have better troops when attacking. This attack happened while I was attacking their cities, so don't be surprised if more troops show up...My wall was only level 5 at this time and was strong enough to keep them out...the balloons probably helped though. :D

Barbarians Reducing In Level

Anyone know how long it takes for barbarians to drop down a level when you do not attack them?

A odd discovery about game mechanics

And another interesting bit of information
I had been pillaging the barbarian village on one island and gotten the village up to a level 33. Then for reasons not having to do with the barbarians, I relocated the town to another island with better production and wonder status using ambrosia. Low and behold the barbarian village on that new island is LEVEL 1. I had another town there and had not attacked that barbarian village.

I do not know if the level 33 village would have moved with me to the new location if I had not already had a town on that island. But for what it is worth it seems I have found a way to knock the Barbarians back down to starting level.

This was not my intention but merely a side effect of an unrelated action. If anyone moves a town to an island where they don't already have a town, I would be curious to see what happens to the level of the barbarians.
:barbarian:

As to the time for the town to reduce in level, that seems to be based on the level the town is at. A level 2 town seems to revert to level 1 in under a day. A level 39 town seems to take a couple weeks to go to level 38. And it appears that above level 40 never drops below level 40. Towns 31-39 never go below 30. Etc.
