7 Tips, Tricks & Hints For Stormfall Players

Here are 7 Tips that will help you progress through the game Stormfall. This is especially helpful for newer players.


#1. Complete Quests- As you progress through Stormfall you will want to complete as many quests as possible. These can be found on the left side of your screen. Not only do quests serve as a tutorial that will help you learn the game, they also reward you with Sapphire, Gold, Iron and Food. All of these resources are necessary for you to upgrade buildings, build defenses and train units. Make sure you are always completing the quests given to you.

#2. Spend Resources- When you first start playing, the maximum amount of each resource you can have is 2000. If you reach the limit and accept a quest reward the amount of Gold, Food and Iron you have will not go above the 2000 mark and you will basically lose the reward. Make sure to spend resources on upgrading buildings, training troops, learning lost arts, etc. I made this mistake when I first started playing.

#3. Build/Upgrade Resource Buildings- The best things to spend your resources on especially in the early game are resource buildings. These buildings are Mines (Iron), Farms (Food) and Townhouses (Gold). Good upgrades on resource buildings will allow you to gain more resources per hour and progress more quickly through the game.

#4. Construction, Lost Arts, Obelisk of Power & Raiding- Although each action in Stormfall takes a certain amount of time to complete, don't forget that you can multitask to efficiently use your gaming time. In other words, four different actions can be training/building/upgrading at the same time. You can build/upgrade a building, train a lost art, use Skull Runes at the Obelisk of Power and Raid/Beseige a neighboring camp at the same time.

#5. Earn Free Sapphire- You will see offers on the bottom right of your screen that will reward you with free Sapphire. The first few are easy, such as go to the StormFall Facebook page, or watch an advertisement movie. Quick, easy and free Sapphire. You can't beat that!

#6. Skeletons, Animals, Trolls- If you are out of resources you can click on Skeletons, Animals and Trolls that you see around your castle. Skeletons will give you Iron for their swords/shields, Animals can be captured for Food and Trolls can be killed for their Gold. It won't be much, but every little bit can help.

#7. Recall Troops- You may already know this, but I made this mistake a few times. After besieging an enemy you will have to recall them back to your land. You can go to your Keep and click on "Tracking" to see where you forces are and how long it will take them to get to their destination as well.

These are some tips that I thought would be helpful. If you guys have any other tips or questions please feel free to comment below. You will be helping out other players as well as myself. Thanks a lot!

  2. Good question. Besieging is basically just a battle between the attacker and defender. It takes into calculation the total offensive points of the attacking force versus the total defensive points of the defending army. A successful siege will give you siege points.

    Raiding is similar except for the fact that you can steal resources (Gold, Iron, Food). You will get an extra Raid attempt every 2.5 Hours. The maximum number of Raid attempts you can store at any one time is 10.

    Good question, I should really make a guide Raiding vs. Besieging.

    1. when you sieze someone you can go to your castle, click garrisons and find your sieze. Click the resource you want and you can farm it. Next to the garrison tab is the fief tag. Click it and find your sieze you are milking.

  9. Hi peeps i am new to this can I please ask one question when your troops get injured where do you go to see how long it will take for them to revive?

  10. They never rivive on their own. You have to use saphires to get them back and you will lose troops 10x faster than you can get saphires to revive them. That's where this game makes it's money. You can't possibly get to a high level without running out the high level troops that have to be revived vs the low levels that you can afford to build. That means buying saphires.
    Even at 25 per level plus the occasional bonus of 5, it would take you 5 levels to replace one warlock, or about 3 pikemen per level. Of course, going to the combats, you will loose 30 pikemen per level.

  11. Your troops will never revive on their own. You use saphires to revive them. You will easily loose 10 times the troops you will ever be able to revive without buying saphires.

  12. Is it better to use offensive units or defensive units when besieging? I usually raid to get rid of the troops, then send a a pikeman to siege. But when people attack the castle i besieged, I don't know if i should have offensive or defensive units at the besieged castle.

    Thanks!

  13. Is it better to use offensive or defensive units to besiege? I usually raid first to remove any troops then send a pikeman to siege. But when the besieged castle gets raided I don't know which units would protect it better. Is the battle offence vs offence or offence vs defense?

    Thanks!

    1. defence defends better

      Delete
    2. If you are defending something then you use defense, if fighting then you use offense. After I raid a castle and it is clear and Ive gotten the bulk of the resources then I send an archer to siege it and leave her there....if I want more D there then I'll siege with more.

  14. I would assume Defensive troops, as those that are raiding your siege are using offensive troops.
