Lord of Ultima: Ballista Military City Layout

Here is my Ballista Military City Layout which you can see in the LoU Flash City Planner:
Max Units: 284,000 Ballistae
Recruitment Speed: 48s
Storage: 1,375,000 wood/iron, 575,000 stone and 2,175,000 food
Food Deficit: 29,583 per hour (need to restock every 3.06 days)

As you can see, it is designed for maximum troop strength and reasonable recruiting speed. There is no need for Moonglow Towers, Marketplaces, etc. You just build lots of Ballistae who sit and defend your cities.

Like always, there is no food production, ship it in via the trade minister.

For towers, I use:
  • Lookout Tower x2 to give 20 hours of attack advanced warning. I find 1 tower/10 hours is not enough.
  • Ballista Tower x22 as the most risk is someone catapulting your city.
  • Lord of Ultima is an online web browser based strategy game. More information can be found at my Lord of Ultima Coverage page.

  • As best described by the creators of the game:
    "Lord of Ultima is EA’s first game in the free Strategy MMO genre and is completely playable in a web browser. Developed by EA’s Phenomic studio, the game’s creator Volker Wertich (the genius behind strategy classics such as the Settlers) takes this genre to the next level. Lord of Ultima features deep strategic gameplay and multiple social features including an advanced trading system, alliance features, online chat, and forums. At launch it will be available in English and German language.

    Set in the legendary Ultima universe, the game takes you to the new world of Caledonia, formed from the remains of Sosaria which was shattered into countless islands. You start your journey with a humble village which you grow over time into a mighty and prosperous capital. On your path to glory you will have to expand your power by creating additional cities, exploring new continents and forging a vast empire. You must master the art of diplomacy and trade as well as the military activities of spying, plundering, attacking and sieging enemy cities to finally become the mighty and feared Lord of Ultima."
