As Tens mentioned, if the faction is hostile towards you, then you have a good chance of being attacked by them the closer your cities are to their hubs. They attack anyone, pres purchases or not. Once the DEVs finish the faction AI, there should be a way to increase standings with different factions, and therefore stop the attacks from coming. However, as that AI has not been completed, all one can do to not be attacked is not place their cities by hostile faction hubs.

Consider Slaying Runes, as well as Runemasters Grounding, to help relieve the attacks made directly against your city. Harvesters near hostile faction hubs should be guarded by armies.

The Tower/Omen faction troops may only be being more aggressive right now due to the upcoming event/tournament (or whatever those mysterious system messages are hinting towards). After that event is over, the faction hostility may drop down again (tho cant be certain).

You would be safer in Elgea. There is a very dangerous player run faction in BL

I have many cities (10) between me and my alt. Moving them would knock both of us down thousands of pop points. They are small to large towns. I was thinking of making them runemaster cities with the towers and other bldgs that are needed. Does this strike you as a viable option? What spells should I cast as I am getting hit with Mages from Tower Faction? Ty

The wise silent one answered your question about which spells to cast to help with NPC factions.

maybe runes will work against other factions, but the shadowmages from the tower bypass runes. at least they did at my town.

The best defense on mountainous terrain would be t1 elite divisions of ranged troops with say clothed backed leather and marksmens bows. for offensive ops, infantry are best against mages but a lot depends on terrain. Being behind a nice wall helps too.

Ah, yes, I did not consider that - Corwin is correct, the Runes wont have an effect on The Tower units, as they are classified as Undead (which bypass runes).

Seems the most viable option left would be to level your wall up, and maybe leave an army or two in the city equip with defensive gear (either terrain specific or bonuses VS undead).

Anyone seen any other factions doing unusual things? The Tower npcs have been attacking (from the summoning place) every harvesting spot I have in Ursor plus occasionally one of my towns. But, also, Blood Reavers suddenly have started dropping by my harvesting spots and passing on. That used to happen occasionally but now happens almost daily.
