    Default How to chief

    So you want to find out how to conquer a village? You have come to the right place, this is a basic guide on how to chief a village

    What is cheifing?

    Chiefing someones village is basically lowering the loyalty of that village from 100% to 0%, this is accomplished by sending chiefs at the village, they will lower the loyalty, argo the name "chiefing"

    How do i chief someone?

    before you chief someone you have to make it unclear which village you will REALLY be chiefing, you can fool your enemies by sending what are known as fakes, you simply send attacks at villages and oasis near your target, i often send fakes to everyone in their 21x21 who is in their alliance and all the oasis

    when you chief someone there should be a maximum difference of 6 seconds between your first attack, to your last reins, and if possible, the village should be conquered in the one run. This can be accomplished in 6 waves, like this:

    attack no1: this is your clearing wave, and on large chiefing attempts, this is usually the hammer of the attacker

    for teutons: mainly axes and TK, though if you are not confident that your hammer is enough then you can also send your main raiding force with it, which should be mace and maybe some palis if you really feel you need it.

    For romans: Imps, EC, i dont suggest attacking with anything other than that except maybe EI if your not confident

    Gauls: Swords and haeds, and like the other tribes, send some TT if you are not confident

    The purpose of this attack is to clear out any troops the defender has in his village, to
    make it easier for your chiefs and cats later

    attack no2: now its time for the cats to roll, send as many cats as you think you will need to destroy his residence, which you should have scouted, but dont send these cats alone, just to be sure.

    attack no3: now that the residence has been destroyed you can send your chiefs, but you must send these with an escort too, incase the enemy has a meticulously timed defense, its unlikely, but possible,

    attack no4: more chiefs here, now you may be asking, why not send all the chiefs in one attack, dont put all your eggs in one basket, if the enemy times his defense to perfection, then you lose ALL your chiefs, some people do 3 attacks, though i stick to 2

    the village should now be under your control, so you have to do these next steps to improve your foothold on that village and make your enemies think twice about trying to retake it

    wave 5: defensive troops, lots of them

    wave 6: enough wheat to support your defensive troops

    so lets break it down, the waves should be no more than 1 second apart, this should be done through multi-tabbing, if you dont know what that is GTFO

    Do i have to do this on my own?

    Thats the beauty of it, because the answer is no, i often have my alliance members help me, either by them sending chiefs, fakes, or even a clearing wave

    Any suggestions to add in would be appreciated

    The end

    You forgot to add that you can send rams to destroy the wall on the clearing wave. Other than that, good job!

    I would add:
    1. "Check your culture points for reasons unknown"
    2. "Reinforcements for the chiefed village are important." - More info on Loyalty regeneration.
    3. Effects when a village is chiefed - lower levels depending on pop, potentially filled expansion slots?
    4. Where to build chiefs

    The less people know about tabbed browsing, the better. However, knowing certain conditions that must be fulfilled is essential. I see these questions quite often and while this is a guide on "how" to chief" it's not going to help anyone when they follow the instructions to the letter and wonder what the hell culture points have to do with a chief.

    Great Guide!

    But I think you missed out on one very important thing.

    SCOUTING.

    You need to know the defense, the troops, and all sorts of things.

    For example, scout all the villages this person has at night, preferably with about 100 scouts or so, you cannot be detected. I cannot stress this rule, you cannot be detected. Why all the villages at night?

    1. It's night. Unless the person has a dual, or has an overnight raid (unlikely by the time many people have chiefs, as many people trust in their defense) the troops will be at home. I mean Nighttime in the .us servers, which would probably be best from around 5-9GMT Which will be night, like very late night during the server.

    2. All the villages if scouted successfully will give you a very fine picture of your opponents defense capabilities. Of course, this is not enough, you need to send enough troops to ensure any defense from the alliance will be destroyed, at a slight-moderate cost to your hammer. Nothing sucks than having to rebuild your hammer mid-game.

    If you find the target is definately not worth the defense, you may need to cancel off the attack unless it is absolutely necessary to chief the village, like say an enemy of your alliance has settled your 7x7.

    EDIT: Don't be too harsh on new players that haven't heard of multi tabbing. Just summerize it that most new web browsers can use it, and usually the command is CTRL+T for Windows XP/Vista

    I think he was saying that if more new people figure out multi-tabbing in a Travian context then he's gonna have more competition.

    So you want to find out how to conquer a village? You have come to the right place, this is a basic guide on how to chief a village

    What is chiefing?

    Chiefing someones village is basically lowering the loyalty of that village from 100% to 0%, this is accomplished by sending chiefs at the village, they will lower the loyalty, argo the name "chiefing". When the Loyalty Reaches 0 it is taken under your control, although all fields and buildings are reduced by 1.

    How do I chief someone?

    Before you chief someone you have to make it unclear which village you will REALLY be chiefing, you can fool your enemies by sending what are known as fakes, you simply send attacks at villages and oasis near your target, i often send fakes to everyone in their 21x21 who is in their alliance and all the oasis

    when you chief someone there should be a maximum difference of 6 seconds between your first attack, to your last reins, and if possible, the village should be conquered in the one run. This can be accomplished in 6 waves, like this:


    Here is your basic goals, and may serve as a general guide to the order:

    1. You want all enemy troops to be removed from the village
    2. Residence destroyed
    3. Loyalty to be lowered to 0 with minimal damage to your future village.

    Here is the short to the point step by step guide, followed by a detailed version:

    Short, Step by step (one chief):

    1. Find a village thats in your interest to chief; not too much of a challenge if your new to it, and in your range of population.

    2. Scout it and see what your up against.

    3. Assemble your hammer, and clear the target.

    4. Catapault ONLY the residence (OPTIONAL: Rams in the clearing hammer if it would help)

    5. Send your Chief 4-6 times to lower loyalty (Troop escorts varying on the possibilty of reinforcements and village size)

    6. The village is yours, reinforce it with defense troops, Name it as your own, Rebuild the Residence to gain the loyalty back (It will be at 0).

    Alternate Detailed version (Multi Chiefs):

    Attack Number 1: This is your clearing wave, the brute force you assert yourself with. And on large chiefing attempts, this should be the hammer of the attacker.

    For teutons: mainly axes and TK, though if you are not confident that your hammer is enough then you can also send your main raiding force with it, which should be mace and maybe some palis if you really feel you need it.

    For romans: Imps, EC, i dont suggest attacking with anything other than that except maybe EI if your not confident

    Gauls: Swords and haeds, and like the other tribes, send some TT if you are not confident

    The purpose of this attack is to clear out any troops the defender has in his village, to
    make it easier for your chiefs and cats later.

    Attack Number two: now its time for the cats to roll, send as many cats as you think you will need to destroy his residence, which you should have scouted, but dont send these cats alone, they will die.

    Attack number: now that the residence has been destroyed you can send your chiefs, but you must send these with an escort too, incase the enemy has a meticulously timed defense, its unlikely, but possible,

    Attack Number 4: More chiefs here, now you may be asking, why not send all the chiefs in one attack, dont put all your eggs in one basket, if the enemy times his defense to perfection, then you lose ALL your chiefs, some people do 3 attacks, though I stick to 2

    The village should now be under your control, so you have to do these next steps to improve your foothold on that village and make your enemies think twice about trying to re-take it.

    Wave 5: Defensive troops, lots of them

    Wave 6: Enough wheat to support your defensive troops

    So lets break it down, the waves should be no more than 1 second apart, this should be done through multi-tabbing, if you dont know what that is:
    1. You open up many tabs on the attack page of the city.
    2. Then you enter the amount of troops and Cat's you want in each wave.
    3. After that go onto the first tab and press CTRL+TAB then enter and repeat until you finish.
    4.Try practicing this until you can go very fast and get attacks with-in the second.

    Do I have to do this on my own?

    Thats the beauty of it, because the answer is no, I often have my alliance members help me, either by them sending chiefs, fakes, or even a clearing wave

    Ok, so I'm a dumass...

    1) Where do I actually TRAIN all those chiefs? Train one, then it tells me "Must have residence level...."

    2) Do Chiefs work like Hero's? Can I send several to one vllage and then attack with them from there? Or do I have to send them from the villge they were trained in? Unless of course I can train several in a singe village...

    You can train one chief per expansion slot, that is with residence level 10/20 or palace level 10/15/20.

    2) Do Chiefs work like Hero's? Can I send several to one vllage and then attack with them from there?
    Nope.
    Legend has it that Hippasus of Metapontum, a disciple of Pythagoras, was at sea when he discovered that the square root of 2 is irrational. His fellow Pythagoreans, outraged by the finding, threw him overboard.

    So I need to train a bunch of Chiefs, have them lazing around eating wheat and getting even FATTER, then use 'em all at once, and time it so they arrive from different villages at the same time...
