Specifics of forming Onslaughts

The maximum number of slots in an Onslaught is 50, including the slot for the initiator's warriors. One troop occupies one slot. Every clanmate or ally can send a maximum of two troops on an Onslaught.

A Jarl can be the initiator of only one Onslaught. However, Jarls can join their own Onslaughts by sending one more troop if their Hero/Hero's Double and Shaman are in different troops.

The bonuses of the Hero, Hero's Double, and Shaman affect only the troops they are leading. A troop cannot be sent on an Onslaught without a leader. Please also remember that scouts don't participate in Onslaughts.

The total number of troops in an Onslaught depends on the level of the War Bloc in the initiating Jarl's Town, the Knowledge they have learned in the Oracle and Shamans' Residence, the Hero/Shaman Skills they have upgraded, their equipment, the boosts they have activated, and the Reputes they have received. The number of troops sent to participate in an Onslaught depends on the level of the Shrine of Odin in the participants' Towns, the Knowledge they have learned, and the boosts they have applied.

By using a "Warrior Number in an Onslaught" boost, the initiating Jarl can summon more warriors for any of their Onslaughts. If you are planning to send warriors to a Town, a "Warrior Number in Onslaughts on Towns" boost will help you increase the number of warriors you can send. In this case, the bonuses provided by the boosts will be added together. Important: in Vikings, the boosts must be activated before you form the Onslaught.

If the number of Onslaught participants has reached the limit, it's highlighted in red.

While troops sent by other Jarls to participate in an Onslaught are in the initiator's Town, they fulfill the reinforcement function and will defend the Town if it is attacked during that time. Meanwhile, the bonuses from the Wall and Watchtower in the initiator Jarl's Town don't affect the reinforcements.

The initiator can cancel the Onslaught while it's at the troop gathering stage. If the initiator cancels it, then troops that are marching to the initiator's Town or that are already there return to their home Towns.

If all troops present in the initiator's Town are destroyed before the Onslaught starts, then the Onslaught is canceled.

Troops that decide to join the Onslaught don't relocate to the initiator's Town immediately, but march there at the usual pace, which depends on the warriors' speed. The participating Jarls can increase the marching speed of their troops by using boosts. If the troops don't reach the initiator's Town before the Onslaught starts, they return to their home Towns.

When an Onslaught is in progress, you cannot quit your Clan, disband it, or expel the initiating Jarl. You can, however, do so during the troop gathering phase or after the Onslaught.

You cannot form or break an Alliance during an Onslaught.

If the battle ends in success, then all plundered resources are divided between the Onslaught participants depending on the capacity of the warriors left alive after the attack.

After the battle is over, everyone who participated in the Onslaught receives reports. The report in your personal mail shows you as the attacker, while the report in the "Clan members' battles" section indicates the Jarl who initiated the Onslaught.

After the Onslaught, all troops that are alive return to their Towns without entering the initiating Jarl's Town.
