    1. Introduction [HG0100]

    1a. What are Guards [HG0101]

    Guards were originally only used to keep other players out of one's house. With the introduction of the Estate System, they have become much more vital. They allow for smoother resource accumulation by defending one's estate buildings from invading monsters.

    You can sell lower level guards for less efficient, higher level guards if you need the space. There is a point when you have enough guards to prevent your estate buildings from being attacked at all. It can vary depending on the level of your guard tower.
    (Please do not ask what that point is, it can not reliably be answered. Any data on the subject is outdated. )

    If you are interested in a guard you see, please visit the House Guard Index to check it out further.



    2. Cost Efficiency Chart HG0200

    2a. Gold Guards [HG0201]

    Unfortunately, there is no way to measure the cost efficiency of Gold Guards. With the removal of Z-Token to Gold conversion in-game and a confirmation from staff that the old ratio was not in anyway accurate, there isn't a good way to quantify how effective the gold guards are. Anyhow, they are all cheap and should be picked up if you have space. Here is a list of all the gold guards, sorted by level:

    Level Name
    8 Nightraider
    25 Dragoncat Guard (Guardian)
    35 Nightraider
    38 Red Dragon
    39 Ice Dragon
    60 Master of Evil
    65 Nightraider



    2b. Z-Token Guards [HG0202]

    Guard Power Formula is: GuardLevel^1.5/5
    Cost Efficiency Formula is: Power/Cost*1000

    Here's a House Guard Spreadsheet to help calculate Cost Efficiency of a Guard.
    (Input the appropriate guard level and token cost in the corresponding "B" columns)


    Top 25 Cost Efficient Token Guards
