Siegefall

Siegefall is a new player vs. player fantasy strategy game from Gameloft. It follows the very popular gameplay model of Clash of Clans and the more recent Rival Kingdoms. In Siegefall, you build up a keep and its surrounding defenses and organize your troops in a series of battles. Both a single-player campaign and player vs. player battles feature prominently in the game. Like most of the games in the genre, it’s highly dependent on raiding other players to accumulate the necessary resources to build up your base and progress. Read on for all the Siegefall cheats, strategies, tips and tricks.

Siegefall Official Description

Here’s the official description from the publisher of the game:

Smash the castle gates and leave nothing but rubble behind in the game that makes you builder, strategist and destroyer, all in one!

Starting Kingdom in Siegefall

Your starting kingdom in Siegefall isn’t much, but hey, it’s home.

What are the heroes I can use in Siegefall?

Knight Teren in Siegefall

Your starting hero: Knight Teren

Heroes are the most important part of your attacking army in Siegefall. They are summoned at your Heroes’ Podium. Heroes are neither living nor dead; they are magical entities. If a Hero expires in battle, they can be summoned or a new Hero can be selected if they have joined your army. You’ll begin the game with Knight Teren, and can add the other heroes to your army as you complete the different chapters from story mode.

  1. Knight Teren
    Once a simple knight, Teren was magically transformed into a godlike being. His swords deal massive damage and he moves swiftly through the battlefield!
  2. Queen Nor
    Command her in battle and unleash her powerful magic on your enemies! Protect her from damage in order to allow her to cast her long-range magical blast of destruction!
  3. Chief Sigvard
    Hailing from the Northlands, Sigvard possesses superior strength and the ability to leap and destroy his enemies. War is but a reality of his lineage; a way of life.

What are the different troops I can use in battle?

There are several different troops you can employ in your attacks in both single player (story) mode and player vs. player battles. As with most games in this genre, there are distinct advantages and disadvantages for each kind of troop.

  • Footman
    Footmen are armed with swords and shields. In combat, they charge into battle and engage in short-range fights. Footmen are most effective when ordered to attack in large numbers.
  • Archers
    Archers are long-range Troops. They will attack the closest building and can shoot over Walls. Keep in mind they move at moderate speed and have less health.
  • Troll
    Trolls can take a lot of damage. They are very useful for destroying enemy Walls with a few powerful strikes.
  • Rogue
    Rogues are undetectable by defenses until they land their first attack. Use them strategically against structures with low health to deal the final blow.
  • Catapult
    The Catapult will destroy all in its path and launch boulders at targeted enemies. Keep in mind that they are slow-moving and vulnerable when not used with other Troops.
  • Death Knight
    Death Knights dash toward their enemies and rapidly attack threats on the battlefield. They are armed with battle axes that steal life from their targets.
  • Healer
    Healers will provide support to Troops by healing them. Healers cannot attack and have very low health, so they must be protected and used strategically.

Which cards can I use in battle?

Cards play a critically important role in your battles. They are essentially spells that you cast during the battle to either cause damage to or harm the enemy or enhance your troops on the attack. You create new cards at the Card Crafter building and assign them to your battle supply at the Card Keeper building. The number of different cards you can bring into battle is determined by the level of your Card Keeper.

Regular Cards

  • Acid Blast
    Slows attack speed and deals damage over time.
  • Arcane Missiles
    A number of missiles seek their own target, dealing heavy damage each.
  • Blood Pact
    Grants brief invincibility. Small chance of surviving the curse.
  • Chain Lightning
    Stuns and deals damage, and then chains to additional enemies.
  • First Command
    Sends Troops to a location. Receive a Second Command Card.
  • Haste Boots
    Increases Troop movement and attack speed for several seconds.
  • Ice Blast
    Disables anything in the affected area for several seconds.
  • Shadow Dust
    Troops become invisible for several seconds or until they attack.
  • Take Over
    Turns an enemy into an ally for several seconds.

Ultimate Cards

  • Fire Dragon
    Deals heavy damage to everything in its path.
  • Fire Rain
    Launches a rain of fire. Each hit deals moderate to heavy damage.

The trials get progressively difficult and you’ll need to have highly upgraded troops and heroes to complete all of them.

More Siegefall cheats, tips and tricks

You’ll encounter several different tips during the in-game loading screens. Here’s several of the Siegefall cheats and tips provided in the game along with some additional commentary.

Keep track of your hero by tapping the health bar or the hero icon in the upper-left corner of the screen.

Remember that you can control where your hero moves and attacks throughout the battle. Keep an eye on his or her health and move your hero out of the way of ranged attacks.

Before the battle starts, you can choose targets for your Troops.

This is an important and little-known fact about the battles. Although your Troops will select the closest building to attack by default, you do have the opportunity to pick their first target of the battle. Use this to your advantage before rushing in!

Certain Troops and Heroes specialize in destroying Walls. Use them wisely.

Yep, Trolls are one Troop in particular that are great for sending up against another player’s defensive walls.

You can burn the Cards you don’t need and receive Gold!

Didn’t get the awesome cards you wanted from the Card Crafter? No worries! Burn them! You’ll get gold. There’s even a checklist objective to do this and you’ll be rewarded with Gems for completing it.

Save the food you gather and send your Battle Troops out in waves. Use this method against high-level Kingdoms.

Yep, true. Don’t just send in reinforcements one at a time if you can wait to gather enough food to send them in as small groups. This is very important when the enemy has lots of different defenses in play.

Even more Siegefall cheats, tips and help

  • Cards can be used to destroy weak buildings and defenses. This will give you food that can be used to spawn Battle Troops.
  • Don’t forget to cover your Mortar’s blind spot with an Archer Tower or Flamethrower.
  • Each time you spawn a Battle Troop, all camps of that Troop type will increase in food cost.
  • Heroes also have an alternate attack that they perform every few hits!
  • Ice Blast can be used to disable a hard-to-breach defensive Tower!
  • In battle, you can cancel Card casting by dragging it back to the Card panel at the bottom of the screen!
  • Pay attention to the layout of a Kingdom. Without a Command Card, Troops will target the nearest building when their original target has been destroyed.
  • Remember that each type of Troop can be upgraded individually. Upgrade them depending on your play style.
  • Remember: Once the upgrade of a Troop type is complete at the Workshop, it will affect all Troops of this type retroactively.
  • Scouting will provide you with valuable information on your opponents.
  • The Arrow Volley spell will detonate hidden explosives.
  • The Boulder Launch deals less damage the farther back a target is from the center of the impact.
  • The damage radius of a Card will show you where the impact will happen. Remember not to injure your own Troops!
  • The enemies you battle in story chapters, if defeated, will join your army and become your Hero!
  • The only way to win a battle is by destroying the enemy Keep in PvP!
  • There is a small chance that a Battle Troop Card will spawn a Death Knight as reinforcement!
  • TNT can hit the same target multiple times, if you align the explosions carefully!
  • Use Take Over on a strong enemy Tower to help your Troops reach a Kingdom’s Wall.
  • Use the retreat button when you are in over your head. This will allow you to leave with Troops that have not been killed. Return to your Kingdom and upgrade your army!
  • When an enemy Outpost is about to release Footmen, an icon will be displayed..
  • Your Heroes can be made even mightier at the Heroes’ Altar!
