    Yes, if you noble him first, you can use his former academy that will now be your own to meet your requirement for a 2nd academy level to create your second nobleman. You will also need 2 stored packages to pay for the training, and enough farm space in the population.

    Then, you will not "rim" him, but, you will still own his former academy. Whether or not he can make another noble depends upon if the barb has an academy.

    Thanks a lot. That was all I wanted to know.

    I'll build my first academy tomorrow but since he has a tribe it won't be easy to get him. He has a 3,5k tribe mate close to him who is a pure pointwhore but can have some defensive troops. I'll certainly build Academy 2 and recruit at least 1 more nobleman. By the time one of us attacks the other we will both be 4k points and the winner will contol the area. If I noble him the other guy will be an easy target.

    i have a question, and i searched for it but couldn't find it.

    I have my first nobleman. my village is under attack right now and is threatened to being nobled itself by a huge tribe. my question is this: if my noble is in transit for the final noble attack to take a different village, and my village gets nobled, before it hits, what happens? does it not attack? does it attack and win the village for whoever just nobled me? or will I still take over that other village?

    The moment the loyalty of your village reaches 0 (no loyalty) any troops that were not killed in the attack "disband" as they are no longer loyal to you. They do not complete their last command, and they do not get captured by your attacker. They simply wander off (disappear).

    I have 3 packets stored in one village and need to transfer 1 or 2 packets to another villiage with a new academy. Can packets be transferred like or want? If so, HOW? I see a store that does something but I can't figure out what it does. Help!

    If you have 3 packets, then they are available in any village. They are not restricted to the village you stored them in. If I store 2 packets in Village A, I can build my noble in Village B with those packets.

    Yes, I can see that shifting around in the. Because of reduction in the price of packets in some villages, now I have extra resources in the store - maybe 1/2 packet? I guess the computer will automatically adjust for all those extra resources in the store.

    What's the point of building an academy in D village? Just for secrecy or repurposing or are there any other reasons?
    Is it common practice to send nobleman with D troops as a part of noble train sent from different villages (including both types - offensive and defensive)?

    So that you can mint coins/store packets using the excess resources from those villages.

    Also, when nobling from a distance into a war front, it is not uncommon to use D-noble trains. You send your nukes separately, and perhaps send one-noble nukes from more than one location. Or clear in advance of a lightly-escorted first few nobles from the D-village. No one ever tries to 'snipe' the 1st noble. That is what stacking is for; just have enough noble-escort to kill a couple hundred defenders.

    But, when using a D-noble train, you escort the 4th (or 5th) noble with 10Kspears/10Kswords (or whatever is left in the village).

    This works well on a war front if you were NOT sending support behind the noble. Most players see a long-distance train with no follow-up support, and they assume rather than waste defense stacking against the attack, they will let the village fall and re-take it right after the conquering noble. Even with walls low, that re-capture effort fails when they strike your full defense that arrived escorting your noble! As soon as you take the village, rush in more defense so the enemy now no longer sees the support arriving to stack their former village that you now own.

    Granted, you do not want to have a lot of D-noble train villages. But, they make a nice, effective surprise tactic now and then when you are trying to noble in a dangerous area.

    Seagryfn, very nice explanation (as usually expected from you :) )!

    One more question concerning your explanation:
    Do you mean that we send a noble which lands first with rather moderate amount of D troops ("lightly-escorted")? Isn't it risky tactics? And how many D troops of what kind can you use as escort of such nobleman?

    Other part of your explanation I've undrerstood quite well though.

    And... by the way one more short question:
    how many O troops (LC, axes) do you recommend to send to escort your 2-nd and 3-rd noblemen in common noble train sent from O village so it would be less risky even if some snipe attempts would be successful? 100 axes? 200 axes? More? Or maybe some LC also?

    Thanks!

    I usually send nearly a full nuke with the first noble, then 100 axes with the 2,3,4 and 5th in some cases. The idea is that if there is any troops left in the village when your train hits it, the first attack kills them all.

    Exactly what I thought. But why do you need these 100 axes for escorting 2-4 noblemen? As I supposed thay can be used if he tries to snipe your 2-4 noblemen? In this case isn't this too small escort?
    I.e. what's the purpose of these 100 axes per each of 2-4 noblemen?

    Because the basic defence of a village is sufficient to kill a lone nobleman. It is never a good idea to send a nobleman without protection.

    My idea is that for a cleared village (having luck -25% and morale 50%, for example) without a wall 1 nobleman need only 2 axes to survive. For this calculations I used simulator. Why do we need 100 axes? Do you suppose that the wall could be several levels higher than 0 after clearing?

    Look, if you want to go through your entire TW career sending nobleman with escorts of 2 axes, be my guest.

    No, simply I want to understard, to see the clear explanation why to send 100 axemen, but not 50 or 200? Or 25 or 400? Why 100?

    Can anybody help me to clarify this?
    Thanks!
