Capturing Level 14 Historic Cities

capturing level 14 historic cities in evony

These cities provide you with control over a large draft area, 66 x 66 miles. There are 8 in each state. These cities are actually fairly easy to take. With a small number of historic heroes and a few ballista they can be taken easily by one player, and using teamwork an alliance can capture every one in a state very quickly.


They allow you to launch 150,000 waves (187,500 with war ensign).


Draft Range

67 x 67 Miles

Defences

Troop Count

The easiest combination is Warrior / Pikemen / Archer / Cavalry / Rams.


Every day there is a random troop combination in the Historic City. The warriors and archers will always be in their. But pikemen and swordsmen alternate etc. But if can be done fairly also with swordsmen in it. Because you go for the battering ram combination there will only be the archers as a range unit firing on you. Stay away from trying to take it with any other combo, the losses will be very high.


Warrior 2,000,000
Pikemen / Swordsman 406,666
Archer 171,288
Cavalry / Cataphracts 271,111
Rams / Ballista / Catapult 36,600

Walls

Its best to try to spam out as much walls as possible

Traps 22,000
Abatis 11,000
Archer Towers 6,666
Rolling Logs 6,000
Defensive Trebuchet 5,000

If you camp all your loyalty waves, make sure to send at least 40, or more if you can. After the city is broken and its troops wiped it varies how many loyalty waves it takes to capture it. Sometimes only 30, but some times over 40. Also make sure you have a city ready to teleport to the historic city if you need extra loyalty waves.


Method 1

Cavalry / Archer / Pikemen / Battering Rams Configuration

This method is the most efficient way to take a level 14. If you have higher hero attack than listed here for the waves then you can significantly reduce your losses. The uprise buff is a must if you plan to take a 14 and you almost certainly need some historic heroes, at least for the ballista wave to kill the warriors. You also need to launch from another level 14 historic city for the main waves and need to use a war ensign. there are other ways to take a level 14, and of course if you don't have a level 14 already you will need to launch your big waves from a level 12 historic city(156,000 troops with war ensign) which means you will need more waves. But this method will benefit alliances with strong players good at co ordination or strong players who would like to solo multiple level 14 historic cities themselves.
