Attack Boost for Attacker.png
Attack Boost for Defender.png

The Attack Boost is a feature of some buildings and items to increase the attack value of either the attacking units or of the defensive units by a certain percentage.

The attack boost for the attacking army is counted separately from the defending army. In both cases it only benefits the attack value. To increase the defensive stats of the attacking or defending army 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.
