Troops and Leader Lords Mobile Guides How to Protect your Troops and Leader
Protecting yourself in Lords Mobile is one the most important parts of the game to get to grips with. This guide covers some basic protection strategies to protect your troops, leader and resources from player attacks. We also look at what happens when your leader is captured, held and executed. Protecting Your Turf
Building up resources, training troops and levelling up your leader all takes considerable time in Lords Mobile. Suffering an unprepared defeat can result in a significant amount of lost Might, can slow your progress through the game and generally annoy the hell out of you. It’s therefore important to understand all the different methods to protect yourself against enemy attacks. Shield your Turf
The most effective way to protect yourself is to put up a shield. Shields prevent all attacks and scouts on your turf. Whilst shielded you cannot lose troops, or resources and your leader cannot be captured. The downside to shields is they can be expensive and you have to remember to log back in before your shield expires in order to activate a replacement. In addition attacking, or scouting any other player will result in your shield ending. Actually any form of aggression, including joining guild rallies will drop your shield. Remember that shields can be purchased in the guild store as well as the normal gem store.
The Shelter The shelter is found just the left of your Castle and can be used to protect your leader and a certain number of troops for free. Tapping your shelter will allow you to send a single march and your leader to safety for a set period of time. During this timer if your turf is attacked these troops and your leader are completely safe. Any other troops that are not in the shelter can still be killed and your resources are not protected. The longest timer you can set is 12 hours, which means you will need to login at least two times a day to refresh your sheltered troops. The biggest downside to the shelter is it can only hold a single march. This means the number of troops you can protect will be limited to your march size which is determined by your Castle level (200,000 at level 25, or 300,000 using a 50% march boost). Tip:– If you are using this strategy to protect your leader and troops, make sure you make a note of the time you send your army to the shelter and remember to log back in before the 12 hours expires!

You can choose shelter durations of 1 hour, 4 hours, 8 hours, or 12 hours.
This is particularly helpful for new players if they find they are constantly being bullied. Also, players going offline for extended periods may also choose to shelter their troops should they not be able to utilize a shield.
