The one page guide on farming NPC cities
People seem to have a hard time getting data out of the longer guides, and a few of the longer guides are wrong (although some aren't), so here is a handy reference that works as of the time of post.
You can use fewer ballistas than I recommend, but the numbers given are pretty safe. To figure out the number of transporters, look in a real guide, since the number varies based upon your logistics level. Sending some number more than the number of ballistas you send is a good rough estimate.
Level 1, 2, 3, use 25, 50, 150 ballistas.
Level 4 have 7+ archery and use 350 ballistas. Do not try with 6 archery.
Level 5 use 550+ ballistas, a good attack hero (call it 80+), and have one of the following archery/horseback riding level combinations:
8 archery + 5 horseback riding
8 archery + 6 horseback riding (good easy choice)
9 archery + 8 horseback riding
9 archery + 9 horseback riding
10 archery + anything
Do not try with 7 archery, or with any other combination not listed, or you'll lose ballistas even if you send 1000. Especially notice that if you mindlessly go to 8 archery 7 hbr, you have to go 9 archery 8 hbr before you'll stop taking losses. If you want to know why, look in a real guide, otherwise just do it.
