    For a non ruby buyer i recomend depending on you level, im level 36 if i didnt have my rubie defenses, i would put castle gate reinforcments , also flaming arrows and stone throwers, this offers a minimal protection, if you could afford to or had rubies you can set your defense up like this...portcullis, in the gates have bulwarks on each flank and middle, machicolation, on all flanks and middle and arrow slits in all of the flanks and middle this should put your castle protection at 210 %on the gate 110%on the walls ans 220% for your troops in the middle andflanks will be at 110 %,for walls and 220% for troops.

    As for soldiers, Longbowmen and heldabidiers are the best.

    If you can save up rubies you can buy ruby tools like swamp snapper and arrow slit

    One technique is to set the melee and ranged ratio to 100% ranged. So there are a lot of longbowmen on any flank you choose. Then you put flaming arrows in that flank so it is 125% better.

    I have to agree with this. 50/0/50 is the best form of defence. The flanks are where the enemy can place the least troops, and therefore if you can with these, though their troops will automatically get through the middle, they'll have -30% strength.

    Archers and swordsman are very important in your defense. Also use bowman and spearman. (They eventually become veterans that are stronger than longbowman and halberdiers.)

    What do you mean by lose honor? For me, I use 33% on each flank, and 34% in the middle. But If I'm online when I'm getting attacked, I arrange my defenses according to the attacker's troops.

    Are flaming arrows really worth it? Is it not better to use additional stone throwing?

    In mostly cases, the 50/0/50 does work well, but as 100% of the attacker's soldiers go through the middle you need "some" soldiers in the keep

    It means the men sent at the middle go to the keep and you have a bonus.

    you could do 0-65-35, most people don't fill up all waves so you could kill a lot of soldiers at gate. all rock tools, no arrows because they only helping range soldiers but not melee ones.

    that works too, but arrows are useful sometimes when the guy comes with bunch of mantlets

    I dont see how arrows are useful *even if* a guy comes with mantlets because they cost way more resources take way longer to make, and have the same bonus (+25%) but to half your troops instead of all of them
