Defense rider buffs


#1

Two questions on defense riders (couldn’t find answers anywhere else):

  1. Do defense rider buffs apply to all towers on base or just those on specific perch island?
  2. Will defense rider buffs be removed when perch gets killed (like totem buff)?

#2
  1. They apply to the whole base.
  2. No the buffs are not removed after the rider dies as far as I know.

P.S. People kill my Perch last as it is on the first short islands so I am not sure about “2”.


#3

It has been reiterated multiple times by PG that it doesn’t go away, so I’m quite certain it isn’t supposed to.

I don’t think the buffs are significant enough to easily confirm by testing without a side-by-side or the same attacker with the same dragon.


#4

You are correct (both of you :))


#5

Thanks guys, highly appreciated


#6

Oh and question #3:
Since there no perches on atlas bases - will defense rider buffs apply there?


#7

Perches due soon. Cannot actually test it sorry


#8

If I remember correctly they said the perches were missing in atlas due to a bug/glitch/mistake or something and was not on purpose.

I believe we were assured they actually still did what they said they did (not even specific to the rider) even though we couldn’t see them.

But I don’t have time to test it either

Yep:
