SLingers do not use sulfur though. ANd besides, they are good for those towns that have no defense. I send out 5-10 at a time (depending on the town wall level) and they come back with 10-20k a hit. Thats a great use for them, since they are cheap. No I wouldnt build massive amounts if you have soemthing better, but my slingers serve me well (and have good back up).I would love to someday build a couple thousand and hit someone with a good sized military though, just for the WTF factor
Your wall information is a bit off. If the town is 10 and the wall is at least 10, you will get the greatest def. boost. However, the percentage seems to change a bit as you go further up in levels. I recently went up against a level 17 town with a 25 wall. The defense bonus was pretty impressive but not nearly as much as i thought it would be. The player had a 190% bonus. I have had towns where my wall and town hall were equal and had over 200% defense.
OP: great guide. I cant wait until there is an all out strategy guide for this game so I can stop answering the same questions over and over in game.
