I've recently begun my first conquest on an inactive neighbors castle, and am looking for tips to reduce these damn peasants loyalty faster.

I started off sending my army en mass, but was frustrated by how many attacks the villagers were willing to endure with no military protecting them. Since they have no defenses I've begun to split my offensive force of 6000 men into 12 waves of 500 with my herald tagging along with the final wave.

Does this strategy have any merit? Should I revert back to my first strategy?

After studying my war reports I've noticed my waves of attacks have either only reduced their loyalty by small fractions or not at all. Does that mean the amount of loyalty lost is directly tied to the number of attacking troops, and not the number of attacks?

Only heralds can lower loyalty, and they lower somewhere between 20-30%. If you want to lower loyalty, send a herald each time. I would recommend sending a large force first to destroy any existing troops in the castle, then send the herald WITH AN ARMY (it doesn't have to be huge, but if you dont send any your herald will die) shortly afterward to start lowering loyalty. 4 heralds have a good chance of capturing, 5 guarantees a capture, but you have to send 1 at a time.

A good strategy is after you destroy the player's army, send 5 successive attacks, each with a herald, which will capture the castle.

Hope this helps! Smile
