As my group dwindles in activity, it becomes harder to face incoming purges. Last night, I mainly survived because the gorillas focused on my fish traps, giving me time to clear those on the opposite side.
I know if i build on an island or clifftop, I may face undead inside my base. However, what if I build atop a cliff but have a grand staircase/entrance at ground level that NPCs can reach? Would I only have to defend that area?
Do wall palasades help during a purge? Thralls seem bugged at the moment and only attack enemies who attack me, not those pounding on my base walls. With palasades, hopefully I can stall the enemies.
Any other anti-purge base building tips?
