Mage Realms - Game Help Manual

There are three types of shields you can use for your realm, but Shields must be researched before you can use them. Once the research is completed, you may power your shields in the Shield Control Center by specifying the amount of mana you want allocated to each shield type.

Mana is allocated in the order of Military, Magic, then Spy Shields, so if you do not have enough mana for all that you have specified, the lower ones will not be activated. The amount of mana needed for maximum shields varies with the amount of land you must protect. The Shield Control Center will show you how effective your shields are or could be as your mana, shield research, and land changes.

The maximum shield effectiveness depends on your shield research. If your shield research is at 100%, then your shields can be powered to the maximum possible effectiveness. If your shield research is lower, then the maximum effectiveness to which you can power your shields is also lower.

The use for each type of shield is shown in the following table.

Shield Type Maximum Effectiveness Benefit
Military Defense 10% Adds to your defensive bonus when you are attacked.
Magic Defense 50% Provides a chance of blocking a spell cast at you.
Spy Defense 40% Provides a chance of blocking spy missions against you.
