An excellent castle to farm for honor; Wolf Castle 1 doesn’t put up much of a fight but at the same time can prove a worthy test for entry level players. The Wolf’s diverse array of defenses means you need to keep an eye out for the unseen as this castle boasts both Sally Forth Knights and invisible Killing Pits. Beware!

In this setup our attacking archers are set to surround The Wolf’s castle on all four sides, quite effectively encircling his castle and ensuring no survivors. Our catapults are positioned in the lower right corner and are, for the most part, outside the defending archers range. Several of the attacking pikemen are set up in-between the attacking archer columns with the express purpose of tripping The Wolf’s oil pots before our main pikeman force arrives from the lower-right corner.
Our attacking archers cleared out the enemy archers before moving onto the enemy pikemen, our catapults smashed a hole into the eastern wall of The Wolf’s castle giving the attacking pikemen quick access to the keep. Whilst 2 of our catapults could have been spared had the attacker given a bit more attention to their placement, all things considered this was a decent attack.
