Fighting the Goblins
There are various types of units in the world of Arkheim, and each unit type has its own bonus. Knowing the unit bonus helps select which targets to attack with an optimal army. In this guide, we will explain how to fight Goblins with so-called anti-goblin units. Thank you, Psyche, for the original Italian guide!
What are these Anti-Goblin units?
Some units have a specific bonus against Goblins and offer you a great chance to save in training costs when the targets you attack are defended by Goblin troops.
Can I use Anti-Goblin units against other players?
Yes, absolutely you can. But you may end regretting it... The bonuses that activate only when fighting against Goblins will not offer any help when fighting against Elves or Dwarves. Your Anti-Goblin troops are at their weakest when fighting against other players.

When not to use Anti-Goblin troops
The Training Grounds next to your Ark is one place where you should avoid using units meant for Gobling fights (Iron Sentry and Horned Whirlwind).

In real battles against other players, it's smart to avoid the units meant solely for killing Goblins (Iron Sentry and Horned Whirlwind). The other units mentioned in this article work well in PvP as well.
PvE (NPC) targets do not benefit from XP modifiers. Each Goblin unit has its own XP value:
