Attack (boost).png

The Attack Boost is a feature of some buildings and items to increase the attack value of attacking units by a certain percentage. The attack boost can also be activated in the Friends Tavern by paying for it with Tavern Silver.

The attack boost only benefits the attacking units, units defending the city will not be affected. To increase the stats of the defending units players may use the defense boost.

When having multiple attack boosts, either from buildings or from items, those percentages are stacked. Then the unit's base attack value is increased by the result.

Attack Boost Providers for Attacking Army

The following sources increase the attack values of the players troops when they are used for attacking. This applies for attacking other players in the neighborhood, for attacking in the guild expedition encounters, for attacking on the GvG Maps, for fights on the Continent Maps, for fights in the Daily Challenges or for fights in the Guild Battlegrounds.

Great Buildings

Some of the Great Buildings offer a Military Boost or Advanced Tactics bonus, which beside increasing the attack value also increases the defense value of the attacking units.
