Generally speaking Horseback Riding (HBR) has some bugs and it’s best to keep your HBR below your archery skill level so your ballistas don’t commit suicide.  There is a bug where your ballistas might keep moving forward in battle instead of stopping to shoot.  If your archery is 8 for example you want your HBR to be 7 or below. You do not want your HBR to be as high as your archery. I’ve lost 800 ballistas when attacking NPCs that I should have easily beaten and I’ve seen my friend lose 1200 because of this bug.

    ive never actualy see this happen. i have lvl 10 both and that seems to be fine. also there isnt a single npc that requires that many ballistas. a lvl 5 is the highest you can farm with ballis and you only need 400-500. if u attack lvl 6 you will almost certainly lose due to the fact that it has trebuchet.

    I’ve had this happen a few times. Most recently arch lev 8 and HBR lev 8. 550 ballistas creamed by lev 5 npc.
    Not a pretty sight, and one of those doooohhhh moments when I realised what had happened.
    juts have to wait for arch to reach lev 9 and rebuild some ballistas.

    I have both hbr and archery at 10 and have been attacking lvl5 npcs without losses. so i don’t really think the bug is fully ‘there’.

    Ok guys there is not a l10 arch bug!
    You can have a l10 arch and hb 0 and suffer no losses from an npc5.
    However there are some combos of arch and hb that will give you losses due to being in range of the ats or losses from units.
    I suspect that if you are having a problem with the so called bug is because you probably have your compas at l10.Keep compas at 9 because it will also make your troops rush foward in battle before you want to get there thus causing large losses.
