Rampart town seen on the adventure map.

The rampart town is a good alignment town type with ranger and druid hero classes. Ramparts are built by creatures in allied defense of the unspoiled wilderness regions of Erathia. With two slow creature types, dwarves and dendroids, rampart armies may be best suited to defensive tactics. Most of these creatures, however, have enemy hampering abilities that can be used to turn the tide against many opponents—especially those dependent on magical attacks.

Additional Information

Pros

  • Dwarven Treasury - At the start of every week, you get a 10% bonus to your gold.
  • Grand Elf - Speed 7 shooter with very high damage that is available early in the game.
  • Several high-speed units that can form a very potent force in the late game.
  • Rampart produces the most Hit Points per week of all towns.

Cons

Strategies

  • Silver Pegasi are fragile and should be used with a little caution.
  • The Gold Dragons are nice level 7 monsters, but won't be affected by most of your group spells like haste or shield.
  • Dendroids and Battle Dwarves are very good meatshields, often becoming useful in long fights. Use them to block pathways or to defend your elves. These troops benefit a lot from a simple Haste spell.
  • The Grand Elf is a nice shooter, but often blinded(or damaged through spells) by AI. Thus, Anti-Magic or Magic Mirror can be useful.
  • The Unicorn is decent, but won't be too much of use in a siege.
  • The Centaur Captain, however, is the best level 1 creature.
  • It is beneficial to build and upgrade your Homestead prior to all the other dwellings.
  • With a Mage Guild lvl 5, it is always useful to pick up wisdom on your heroes.
  • At sieges (especially when defending), use your Dendroids to bind enemies in the moats.
