What are traps?

As you advance in the game, you will have to defend your kingdom from other players and their attacks. One way to do this is to build units to defeat and kill other attacking troops. Furthermore, traps are a type of Fortified unit that you can use to defeat other players’ troops.

However, these are only effective in huge numbers. Traps are a good defence if your Beacon Tower gives you a warning in time, since they are quick to build and fairly cheap, but the downside is that they are not very effective.

Evony: How to increase Trap Capacity

You can build several structures in your kingdom such as the Trap Factory. The number of traps your city can have depends on the level of your wall, your Defence Capacity, and Advance Defence Capacity research. Players should bear in mind that the maximum number of traps is 215.

In order to increase your trap capacity, you should focus on researching your Defence Capacity.

Moreover, you should upgrade the wall around your empire, which you can do by selecting the wall and then clicking on “Upgrade.” Upgrading your wall may cost you many resources, including grain and gold, among others.

To research Defence Capacity, you have to head to the Academy in your kingdom and select the “Research” option. In the new menu, you will find various tabs, one of which is “Defence.”

Here you will see a skill tree that contains a variety of skills; research the skills in chronological order. This means that you will have to research many other skills before you can research Defence Capacity.
