Hiring mercenaries

IMN4UIMN4U Posts: 4
Something I found out the hard way (I'm a newbie to the game) - I was defeated in an attack because the Mercenaries (which I bought specifically to fight in that attack) disappeared when the attack occurred, according to the Details in the Attack Report. Bottom Line-Don't depend on Mercenaries to hang with you in an attack.

    You need to build a tavern, its in the military tab in the construction.

    Also, they don't just disappear-you may have run out of food and they deserted.

    @Cpt I was talking about the mercenaries camp, but the person MAY have meant shadow ones, who do not eat food and do not fight on defense.

    They don't consume food.

    I believe he is referring to troops from the Mercenary Tent, not Shadow Mercenaries.

    He could mean the Shadows, because they don't defend.

    OP can you clarify?

    Can shadow merc's be killed when you are being attacked if you do not send them away? (Even though they do not defend)

    I think this person is referring to the mercs you hire at the post, because "I hired them for that attack specifically" but that can mean two things... Whatever,
    Just saying the bears and the lions get it in this game... 



    What is the max hoarder level?

    Do Marauders come by often as Mercs? I just started yesterday and had one come by when I was short on gold and food, so didn't (couldn't really) hire him. I have yet to see another come by. If they don't come by often, how do we get them? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Name? Creatures? Bees?

    Oranges?

    Wrong place for any of those.

    If there is ever a problem, issue, or just need advice I be more than happy to help just PM me.

    From the detail of my Defeat, there was a Marauder for purchase (7 days....rubies). I've attacked 2 Baron Castles with pyromanic (2 each time) and I can't see the Marauder. Is this a shadow, lurking somewhere in the background and will he surface or produce results. Ama C

    The marauder that you're talking about is not a troop. He only increases the amount you loot and the amount glory you get.

    You can get pyromaniacs from the marauder EVENT or from the mercenary post sometimes.
