Rampart is a good alignment town with the ranger and druid hero classes. Rampart represents AvLee.

"The Druid and Ranger hero classes are native to Ramparts, which are built by creatures in allied defense of the unspoiled wilderness regions of Erathia. With two slow unit 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." RoE manual

Rampart's native terrain is grass.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

  • With two slow creature types, dwarves and dendroids, rampart armies may be best suited to defensive tactics. Most of Rampart creatures, however, have enemy hampering abilities that can be used to turn the tide against many opponents, especially those dependent on magical attacks.
  • Silver Pegasi are among the fastest creatures in the game, which often offers chance to act first in combat. However, they are quite fragile and should be used with caution.
  • Gold Dragons' spell immunity is a double-edged sword, their skills cannot be enhanced but nor can they be diminished.
  • Beware of Green and Gold Dragons' breath attack which can damage your own troops.
  • Having only Gold Dragons in your army and having learnt Armageddon spell somewhere, you may rush through the map with Dragogeddon manoeuvre. Green Dragons cannot be used for Dragogeddon as they are susceptible to 4-5 level spells.
  • Dwarves and Dendroids are tough and useful in shielding Elves (or other shooters).
  • The Grand Elf is a nice shooter, but often blinded (or damaged through spells) by the AI. Thus, protecting this ranged attacker with Double attack by anti magic spells like Anti-Magic (4th or 5th level spells only, up to spell immunity) or Magic Mirror (20% to 40% chance of reflecting spells back to the enemy and then target a random stack) can be useful.
  • It is beneficial to build and upgrade Homestead prior to all the other dwellings.
  • Defending a town, it is possible to use Dendroids to bind enemies in the moats.
  • Try to build Treasury as soon as possible. Having a Treasury, don't spend money on Days 5-7 if it isn't necessary, and try to sell resources for gold at a Marketplace or Trading Post. Then, you will become very rich when the new week begins.

Pros

  • Centaurs and Centaur Captains are among the best 1st level creatures.
  • Several Treasuries can become extremely powerful in longer games as every treasury's 10% bonus is cumulative.
  • Grand Elves are fast ranged units that can be acquired early in the game and, what is even more important, shoot twice.
  • Several units with high speed rating can form a very potent force in the late game.
  • Rampart produces the most hit points per week of all towns.
  • Many anti-magic abilities of creatures. This includes Dwarves' resistance, ability of Pegasi to increase cost of a spell casted by the enemy hero, Unicorns' aura of resistance, and finally Green and Gold Dragons' immunity to the majority of spells (Gold Dragons can be part of Dragogeddon).
  • Unicorns are versatile high-level warriors, useful in both attack and defense. After being upgraded, they become one of the fastest creatures unable to fly, and have brilliant health. Moreover, they are very cheap, as Scorpicores and Wyvern Monarchs have higher price and lower stats than War Unicorns (while being quite faster than the latter and able to fly).
