Defensive bonus at oasis

  • So the argument is that the defense bonus at oases is only for animals, and not for stationed troops. Is the "no defense bonus for stationed troops"-answer from the 2015 post below still accurate? This should be added to the wiki which doesn't give me the answer, currently.


    Oasis defence bonus


    Thanks!

  • The answer is still the same, defense bonus doesn't apply to animals. Only defensive units benefit from the bonuses. (at least if there isn't some recent bug with them)


    You can check this easily from clicking on the oasis and looking at the upper right corner.

    Pictured above is a iron mine which has 0% bonus because it's under animal control but if you were to capture it it would change to a 100% like this

    The bonuses listed by Georgi should also be correct

  • Yes + it can't lose the bonus like a village could thanks to rams. If you can bait people into attacking an iron oasis then just defend with everything because that's the best fight you can ever get.

    That being said for somewhat obvious reasons people don't often attack oasis with full force so it's rare to get to use their defense bonus to your advantage.

    What is perhaps more notable is that crop oasis (without other resources) have 0% defense bonus making them perfect targets for cavalry hits
