Nomad Camps

GENERAL INFORMATION:

  • Nomad camps are NPCs (i.e. not players) that contain resources and troops. To get resources, the defense (including the wall) must be defeated or destroyed.
  • There are 9 levels of nomad camps which contain different combinations of resources and troops. The higher the level, the higher the amount of resources, but also the stronger the defense.
  • All nomad camps of the same level have different resource amounts and troop strength, so some would bring more profit than the others.
  • Every day 5 attacks on nomad camps are possible for free. It is also possible to purchase additional attacks for amethysts. It is worth buying 1 attack for 10 amethysts if you are attacking nomad camps level 4+. More resources = faster expansion.
  • The counter of free attacks p. day is located in the lower right corner on the world map. It also shows when the time for the new cycle begins, i.e. when new attacks are available again.
  • Nomad camps are continuously renewed, i.e. those already attacked and pillaged disappear, whereas new nomads are generated to replace the pillaged ones. New nomad camps are created as soon as the “old” ones have been attacked at least once; if spied but not attacked, the nomad camps will vanish from the world map 24 hours after.
  • Each nomad camp can be attacked several times (up to 4 times) until it disappears. Therefore, you’ll obtain the highest amount of resources on the first attack.
  • If the first attack destroys the defense, the same nomad camp can still be attacked, but each subsequent attack (on the same nomad camp) will reduce the amount of resources you can pillage.
  • When attacking a nomad camp, you can take 40% of all resources. Zodiac research increases the amount of loot by 1% per level.
  • A nomad camp that has already been attacked, can disappear from the world map at any time, also after the first attack; once it disappears, a new nomad camp (not necessarily of the same level) will be created in the vicinity instead.

LAPIS LAZULI:

  • When hitting nomad camps, you can also find and pillage blue stones called lapis lazuli.
  • You can get a lapis lazuli if you attack a nomad camp and win the battle. Note that if you don’t win the battle, you won’t get the stones (the level of the camp has no consequence for finding a stone). What counts is the clear victory (no draw).
  • Under certain circumstances, you can get more than one lapis lazuli per day, but this happens rather rarely.

TIPS FOR BEGINNERS:

  • Since the defense varies at each level, no general statement can be made as to the exact troop combination that may be used for attacking each of the levels. However, espionage and battle simulations will help you to get an idea of what troops are required to successfully defeat a certain nomad camp: get a spy report, export the data into the battle simulator, and simulate the results. To avoid any possible (and unnecessary) losses, it is crucial to unlock the battle simulator as soon as possible (required: espionage level 15).
  • Never send your troops to attack a nomad camp before you’ve got a complete espionage report (it should include all units that defend this nomad camp).
  • For nomad camps level 2 you’ll need at least 100 Hyksos (or their equivalent in terms of strength). As long as you don’t have this amount of units, don’t run the risk and keep hitting level 1 nomads, while recruiting the rest of the units. Try to get all necessary units for hitting level 2 nomads as soon as you can, as level 2 nomads contain much more resources than level 1.
  • Even if there are no units left in a nomad camp (i.e. if it has already been attacked once), there is still the wall that needs to be destroyed to get out the remaining resources. Thus, don’t forget to send units with sufficient strength (meaning some combat units such as hyksos) along with your traders.
  • It is recommended to spy on several nomad camps of the same level to get the best profit (in terms of units lost/resources pillaged).
  • The best combination of troop for nomad camps is Medjay + Ra Warrior in the amount of 10 to 1 (example: 1000 Medjay + 100 Ra), until you get the Scorpion King.
  • You can send ally units that are stationed at your place to attack. The damage taken will be spread evenly among all allies. Remember that resource looting is also shared between armies, so you should also send ally traders.
  • There are different seasons of the year in the nomad camp, but usually, when sending an attack, it’s best to activate the summer season.

SPYING NOMADS:

To spy a nomads, we need to have the appropriate level of espionage research, if we have a lower level, than shown below, the spying may fail and our units will die.
If we have a higher level of espionage than required, we can send less Bedouins.

Appearance Nomad Level Espionage Required Description
Nomad 1 Espionage lvl 1 It is enough to send 1 Bedouin.
