Default Static defense guide

What is a good defense guide? I want to capture provinces, built a castle and leave them protected. Even PD 125 won't stop a determined attack and I don't like to move my main army all over the place to break sieges.

I'm just tired of getting stalemated by AI LE Ermor. They attack in stacks of 400-2000 and slaughter the PD. Even with purgatory and the spell that attacks heretics in your dominion, their numbers still manage to grow. That's with a dominion of 10 and a temple in each province.

Don't defenders automatically win battles after the turn limit? If so, can't you just kit out some zero enc thugs for high defense and protection, and just wait until the end. The undead will just die when they route since they are mindless, and if you really want to be static, dont move your thugs.

Harsh lesson learned by the french in WWII, static defenses are obsolete! BLITZKRIEG!

LA Ermor? Play as LA Abyssia/LA Marignon with high dominion, cast Purgatory and bloodsacrifice like there`s no tomorrow. Purgatory fries undead in your dominion based on the dominionscore, so in provinces with 10 candles it kills them all.

This will not help you during this game of course. (I wonder if it is possible to hack the nation you are playing during play... perhaps by editing mods).

Yep, blitzkrieg is pretty much the name of the game here, a la all of the elite guides.
