Defense Workshop is a building where defense tools are produced. Only one can be built in each castle and/or outpost. It has four levels, and at each level, different tools can be made to protect your castle from incoming attacks.
At level 2 you unlock Flaming arrows and Bulwark. At this point, you now also gain access to Dummies, which are defensive tools, that when your castle or outpost is spies upon fool enemy players into thinking that they are units. The three types of dummies are the Dummy melee soldiers, Dummy ranged soldiers, and Dummy archers.
At level 4, you will unlock various defense tools, which almost all tool has double effect. You must unlock building skill first in order to unlock tools.
The Defense workshop is effective but costly and slow in production. Here are ways to cut costs and increase productivity :
- Defense tool cost build item (primary).
- Public Order : The higher the public order, the faster the production speed.
- Forge : Increases speed by a percentage, similar to Sawmill, Stonemason, and Flour mill.
- Research Tower : "Workbench".
Disclaimer: The tools listed above are not all the tools in the defense category, they are simply the tools that can be produced by the Defense Workshop, for a list of (almost) all siege tools visit
