Builds

There are hundreds of builds in KaW. Each has it's own weaknesses and strengths and will really define how you play the game.

Attack Build

The Attack Build consists of 24 Workshops, Forges, Subterranean Factories, or Cursed Foundries. This build will just about always win it's first attack unless it is grossly under the enemy's ally stats. The only thing is you'll almost always lose when defending against an attack or a spy attack. Total cost to BC with T4: 644'803'737'000

Balanced Build

The Balanced Build consists of 24 Stables, Beastiaries, War Aviaries, or Circle of Elementals. This build will nearly always win in either attack or defense against a build, however it will usually lose against a spy attack. Total cost to BC with T4: 644'803'737'000

Defensive Build

A Defensive Build consists of 24 Barracks, War Cathedrals, Summoning Circles, or Titans Lairs. These builds will nearly always win in defense, but will rarely win in an attack. Total cost to BC with T4: 644'803'737'000

Mixed Build

A Mixed Build has so many variations. The most common one though is 8 spy buildings and 16 troop buildings. This build offers good spy defense and spy attack, as well as ok attack. Total cost to BC with T4: 653'563'737'000

Pure Spy Build

A Pure Spy Build Consists of 24 Guilds or Stronghold of Shadows. These builds will nearly always win in a spy attack, but have no attack troops. These builds are anonymous and serve well as OSFs but give out low plunder. Total Cost to BC with T4: 677'083'737'000

Hansel/Hybrid Build

A Hansel Build consists of 23 Guilds or Stronghold of Shadows along with 1 Troop Building. A Hybrid build is the same, except without the troop building. These builds are good for allowing a couple of hits or for spying and being "too weak" to attack. Hybrids are good for opening then putting up a troop building to keep you from getting unwanted hits. Also, Hansel builds are unable to be hit with no gold out other then by another Hansel build or a very weak player. Total Cost to BC with T4 (Hybrid): 649'363'737'000. Total Cost to BC with T4 (Hansel): 675.613'737'000

Tower Build

A Tower Build consists of 24 Defensive Towers or Defensive Fortresses. These builds have no troops, however, they are good for allowing free steals or scouts. These builds are very hard to win against in an attack. Total Cost to BC with T4: 458'203'737'000

Turtle Build

Turtle Builds have lots of different variations. A turtle build is any build with higher defense then possible with full troop buildings. This build often contains lots of towers and very few troop buildings. These builds are very rare.

*Please note that the cost to BC counts the cost of Land Completing.*

___________________________________

Converting Builds

I have some tips from experience for converting builds which will likely help you out.

If you're converting to a pure spy, I'd recommend saving up enough money to build 24 guilds/strongholds fully upgraded all at once. This is because it is much easier to make money as an attack build then as a spy build.

If you're simply leveling up your buildings, I'd recommend saving up enough to fully upgrade one building and take them one at a time.

*Side Note: You get 330m for destroying a level 3 T3 building.*

___________________________________

Tips and Advice

Here are some tips and advice that may help you with your build.

- Make sure your build suits your style of play

- Always keep max plunder

- If you're attacking a farm that's open for long durations of time, attack/spy them twice, regenerate, attack/spy twice, regenerate, etc.

- Use inactive farms

- Shoot for LC before BC

Nice job, dilly. :D :D

EDITS:
this first one i LOL'ed at. did you just copy this one from your handbook?
total land cost: actually 1,803,735,000. for lands 4-25. if you count the tutorial ones, add 2k.
(add up your costs, dilly!) :)

PS. if you did just use the one from your handbook, go back and edit it. you'll find that the handbook includes a "30k" land that does not exist, and misses the 200M one. Thats where you got your error from :)

workshop:
2: 1000/600
3: 2400/1600

stables:
2: 800/800
3: 2000/2000

barracks:
2 and 3: flip the workshop stats around. (too lazy to write it-.-)

also: u have a note that the def buildings give an extra 5%. add that the balance ones have 100 extra troops at max lv, and give 5% less plunder. :D

according to raeki, a hansel cannot be hit with 0 cash by any player with 12 troop buildings or more.

i thought you get 20% for razing any building? shouldnt that be 266M? not 330? am i missing something......?

Overall, very nice. :)
