How to kill Royal Thief

As you progress through the activities in the tavern during the Royal Thief Event, a Royal Thief will be generated at random times and an ambassador will visit you in front of the city walls. When you press that ambassador, three Royal Thieves will appear on the screen, but you can’t see the power of the Royal Thieves, so you won’t know how strong they are until you defeat the Royal Thieves. (With the 12/21/2020 update (ver. 3.86.4), power is now displayed when attacking a Thief on the map.)

Strength of Royal Thief

The power is 13.6M. There are I, II, and III Thieves, but the strength is the same. if you can beat I, you can beat III.

Roughly speaking, it is a little stronger than Boss Lv. 9 Minotaur (9.9M). If you can defeat the minotaur, you can probably defeat the Thief.

The contents of the chests that you get for defeating Royal Thief are also the same as the Minotaur’s. (The “Royal Thief Chest” is not the chest you get for defeating 3 Royal Thiefs, but the “Royal Thief Chest” you get for defeating one Royal Thief yourself.)

How to kill all 3 of them

You can only defeat one of them by yourself, and if you want to defeat all three of them, you must ask your alliance members to help you defeat the rest. On the other hand, you can have an alliance member defeat all three of them without defeating one by yourself.

Press the ambassador that appears in front of the city wall to display a screen where you can make a request. If you don’t make a request from this screen, alliance members can’t attack the thieves. When you make a request, an email will be sent to that member, allowing them to attack. A request can be made to up to five members of the alliance.

Troop Formation needed to defeat the Royal Thieves

  • If you don’t mind having wounded troops, you can defeat them with 60,000 tier 10 cavalry. However, your generals, equipment, research, and monarch gear must be sufficiently enhanced. Specific examples are discussed below.
  • If you want to reduce the number of wounded troops to zero, a minimum of 200,000 cavalry of tier 10 is the rule of thumb.
  • Cavalry only. Ground troops, Ranged troops, and Siege machines are not required. Mixing different types of troops increases wounding.
  • Only troops of the same tier are allowed. Mixing different tiers increases wounding.
  • It doesn’t matter if the winning odds are warned as “extremely low”. There is a high probability of wounded troops, but they can be defeated.
  • “Power” has nothing to do with winning or losing. You can’t win if you unnecessarily increase your power value. For example, the following will increase the power of your troops when attacking, but will not allow you to win.
    – Putting high-grade equipment with no cavalry buff on the general, even though his troops are mainly cavalry.
    – Attack with a subordinate city with only weak troops.
    – Attacks by attaching a subordinate city with few troops, but with a mayor.

This thread is probably too old but I don’t understand how I can have the same wounded using 214k T10 cavs with Barbs 5 star with no gear on at all or adding General’s Spear 17.5% mounted and Fearless Kings Ring refined to a 12.2% mounted attack and 9% mounted attack? Barbs also has level 4 mounted troop attack skill, and level 2 mounted troop attack against monster. The only thing I can think of is all these don’t stack but everything people say in these guides and YouTube videos say they do all stack. I get 388 wounded whether I have any gear on or not. It doesn’t make sense so if someone knows why, please post.

l am still confused about the difference between my mornach’s power and my troops power. Please help explain why there is a vast difference in them n why they differ in the 1st place

The monarch power is the sum of all the power from all the troops you have, as well as power from traps, research, and construction etc.
The power of the troops is the power of only the troops you sent out and your leading general (and subordinate cities if you bring them into the battle).

So, roughly speaking, you can think of it as follows.
– Monarch power is power in Defense
– Troop power is power in Attack

The most important thing is research I have tried killing thieves with t8 148k with Sanada general skills are mounted troop hp against monster lv4 mounted troop defence against monster lv4 and mounted troop attack lv4. The wounded is around 4.5k with Elite gears. If you have better gears you can get around 1800 wounded. Don’t forget refining them with mounted buff is also important if you want to take down any bosses.

BOT MONSTER xD

Can one of the five invited alliance members take down three thieves by himself?

If I confused to invite one player but I want to change then what should I do?

Lucky–opapa

Great research. I take my hat off to you.
I look forward to your continued success!
