Additional Information

Combat system

  • Following Sea Serpent's battle style, players will need to spend energy to increase their Castle Defense; this action is called Fortify and the more energy you spend + the higher your defense stat, the more you fortify.
  • When attacking, damage dealt is modified by the amount of defense left in your Castle (the lesser Defense left, the lesser damage you deal), to the point that players won't be able to attack if Castle Defense is at zero. Do not forget to Fortify!
  • Damage dealt, instead of being record as is, is tranformes into orc soldiers killed, with a ratio 1 orc soldier killed per 1000 damage dealt or fortified.
  • The Attack and Fortify buttons will allow the player to spend 10/20, 20/40, 50/100 Stamina/Energy respectively depending on player's stats (100, 200 or 500). You can skip stats restriction with this link:
where XXX is 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9 for 1, 5, 10, 20, and 50 stamina attacks, respectively; or 4, 6, 8, or 10 for 10, 20, 40, and 100 energy fortifications, respectively; and YYYYY is the Castle Age user id of the summoner.
