Attacking cities and flags is one of the key features of Call of Dragons gameplay. After you attack enemy cities and forts, your troops will be divided into 3 different sections: lightly wounded, severely wounded, and dead.
There are two options for attacking cities and flags in Call of Dragons: attacking with a rally or attacking solo. It is always better to attack using a rally because you will lose fewer troops and do more damage. Training troops takes a lot of time and resources, so you should be careful how, when, and who to attack.
In Call of Dragons, you can attack a city by using solo troops (swarming) or by using rally features in the game. When attacking an enemy city, you will lose a lot of troops, especially if you are attacking with solo troops. You should almost never attack a city using solo troops because it is not worth it.
The only time when it is worth it is when the enemy city does not have a lot of troops in the city and has bad garrison heroes but has a lot of resources that you can loot. If you are a new player or a free-to-play player, you should avoid attacking cities as much as you can. In 99% of cases, it is not worth it.
Before you decide to attack a city, you can scout it. By scouting it, you will get information on enemy troops and garrison heroes. Based on the report that you get from scouts, you can decide whether to use a rally or simply swarm it using solo marches.
Each city in Call of Dragons had a watchtower and city wall. The watchtower and wall have durability. Watchtower durability is low, so in most cases, you will destroy it relatively quickly, and it will no longer deal you damage. City Wall has a lot more durability, and after a successful attack, it will start burning and lose durability.
After some time, the burning will stop and the city will stop losing durability, so you will have to attack it again in order to get the enemy city at 0 durability. When the city wall gets to 0 durability, it will be randomly teleported onto the map. If you are not sure what are the best heroes to use then you can check out our Call of Dragons Tier List.
After you attack the city, your troops will be divided into 3 categories: lightly wounded, severely wounded, and dead.
- Lightly wounded: you are able to use these troops again
- Severely wounded: in order to use these troops, you will have to heal them in the hospital.
- Dead: You will no longer be able to use this troop.
Attacking the city solo
Attacking an enemy city alone is never a good idea. You will lose all of your troops in a short amount of time if the enemy has the same or greater power than you. It is not worth it, especially if you are free to play a player who is limited in troops and resources.
We recommend you attack only low-level cities with a lot of resources that you can loot. If you are planning to attack a bigger city, then it is best to make a rally.
Attacking the city with a rally
Attacking an enemy city with a rally is a great way to quickly and effectively destroy cities. If you are planning to attack a city using a rally, make sure that you have the best rally heroes, good technology, and alliance members online who will join the rally. If you are a free-to-play player, there is a high chance that you will not have the best rally heroes, so it is best to ask pay-to-win players in your alliance to create a rally. If you are going to make a rally, make sure that you have all buffs activated and the right Call of Dragons talent tree.
If you have your rally building on the max level then the rally can have 2m troops. With some additional buffs like hero skills and technology, you can increase that number by over 2m. Each player can join with one set of troops, which means that a rally can have around 10 alliance members inside.
You want to make sure that rally is full and has all 2 million troops inside. With max rally and heroes, you will be able to deal an insane amount of damage. One more important tip is that you and your alliance members try to reinforce the rally while attacking a city; more troops inside equals more damage.
Attacking alliance flags and fortresses
Attacking alliance flags and fortresses is the same as attacking cities. They can garrison heroes and troops inside. It is always best to use the rally to attack alliance buildings flags and fortresses for better results. You can solo attack them if they have a small number of troops inside.
When you successfully attack alliance flags and fortresses, they will start burning and lose durability. When their durability goes to 0, they will be destroyed and removed from the map. Alliance officers and leaders can stop the fire from spreading by extinguishing it with gems and coins.
After some time, alliance flags and fortresses will automatically stop burning, so you will have to attack them again if you want to completely destroy them. Alliance fortresses have a lot more durability and can have more troops defending them inside. So be careful when you are attacking alliance fortresses.
One more important thing that you have to keep in mind when you are attacking alliance flags and fortresses is that they can deal damage to you if they have AOE heroes as a garrison. So never leave your troops near alliance flags and fortresses. When you are attacking, make sure that you are using the best hero pairings and best artifacts in Call of Dragons. You want to deal as much damage as possible while losing as few troops as possible
