Resistances are the value that reduces incoming damage from enemy attacks. There are six kinds of different resistances plus one additional resistance type for buildings.
|Defense||Protection from all incoming damage||D|
|Sword defense||Protection from swords and knives||SW|
|Pike defense||Protection from pikes and lances||PK|
|Arrow defense||Protection from arrows||AW|
|Fire Weapon defense||Protection from gun and rifle fire||FW|
|Cannon defense||Protection from artillery fire||CN|
|Building durability||Protection from fire arrows and artillery||BD|
Most units are able to upgrade their melee combat resistances (AW & PK) with the chain upgrades: conducting a physical training or alternatively, conduct a riding drill.
Some special technologies like conduct a parade are also able to raise ranged resistances but are the exception.
