Castle is a good alignment town type with Knight and Cleric hero classes. Castle armies are primarily composed of human men-at-arms, though these towns have also formed an alliance with the griffins and are under the protection of angels. With two types of ranged attack units and two flying creature types available, Castle-based armies are well equipped to quickly engage and defeat their enemies. Castle represent Erathia.

Castle's native terrain is grass.

Strategy[edit]

Pros[edit]

Cons[edit]

  • Second most expensive town, Tower being the most. Hard to obtain the required 6 gems/week, without a pond or Tower town with a Resource Silo providing them.
  • The 6th tier dwelling, Training Grounds is the extremely hard to build, as it requires 30 woods.
  • No units with immunity or resistance.
