Strategy

As siege unit the trebuchet should be used to destroy enemy buildings, but it is very effective against units and heroes as well. You should keep your trebuchets behind your army or in your base to provide it with some defence as it is not meant to used in melee combat. To increase the damage dealt to units and buildings you should upgrade it with fire stones.
