  • Wait until the army attacks your cities.
  • Strike the enemy.
  • Strengthen the allies who are under attack.

Recommended Commanders for Shadow Legions Invasion

To prevent your cities from the Shadow Legion armies, you will want to use garrison-specialized commanders. In your city and allies’ cities, commanders who are excellent in garrison will have no trouble controlling those armies.

For beginners, here are some of the best commanders to protect cities:

If you want to launch an attack on the enemy armies, you will want to use commanders who are excellent in speed and offense. The cavalry commanders are great at doing this job so you will want to stack more strong cavalry troops.

For beginners, here are some of the best commanders to attack:

  • Cao Cao
  • Minamoto
  • Takeda
  • Attila
  • Baibars
  • Belisarius

Shadow Legion Invasion Strategy


Base on the game strategy of your alliance, for this event there are two ways you can do that is either defending or attacking the armies. However, most alliances choose to protect their cities since it is less painful than attacking.

When you attack Shadow Legion armies, you are taking their points and stop them from achieving the rewards. I highly suggest that you should keep working with your alliances and developing the game plan.

Have you known that you are able to reinforce your alliances in this event? In an ideal world, you will want to use commanders that can rapidly teleport around the map, which means that you will want to use cavalry commanders.

But if you’re a British player then you can take advantage of the 20% of garrison capacity to maximize the size of your troops while you are in an alliance’s city.  Make sure that you are closely positioned to assist your alliances.

Best Tips for Shadow Legion Invasion

Finally, here are some wise tips that you need to know before joining this event:

  • You can only achieve rewards when both your individual and alliance points fully reach their targets.
  • During the event, if you leave your alliances, your individual points will decrease to zero.
  • Governors are permitted to send only one troop to damage the Shadow Legion force.
  • The Peace Shield is not helpful in this event.
  • You will get prizes every time you kill armies, for example, 100 gems, speedups, tokens and more.
