Nox is a medium-speed land-dependent race. If running full swamps they have the cheapest and one of the most efficient defense troops in the game. At 36 % required, it's easy to have the full bonus all the time with 30 % homes and 6 % towers to account for the mana cost on Nightshades and Fiends. They also have an OP spell that supports your troops with 5% extra OP.

As OOP attackers they typically run a high amount of temples from the start, just to get their swamps up. Late-round high temples are a nice building to have anyway, especially if it boosts your DP. Their OP is rather expensive but their DP is so cheap and efficient that the expensive OP doesn't hurt in the long run. Additionally, unlike other land dependent races like Gnome or Wood Elf, the relatively low amount still allows for a wide variety of strategy choices. Teching is a natural choice with the Research Point Production bonus, but there are many paths to take.

Racial Bonuses[edit]

  • Mana Production: +10%
  • Food Consumption: -20%
  • Research Point Production: +10%

Note: the Research Point bonus works for both School production and Invasion gains, but not for the small bonus you get when taking your Daily Land bonus.
