     - Leadership Lvl (Lvl 1): Your current Leadership Lvl. At Lvl 1, you will only gain
1 point per second, but if you will upgrade them to higher levels (max Lvl 4), you will now be able to summon more due to faster point gain per second.
     - It is recommended to upgrade your Leadership to Lvl 2 at the start of the battle.
     - If you think you can hold your enemies, upgrade your Leadership Lvl again!

Attack, Dodge and Delay Enemy Movements!
     - Learn these basic controls and movements to increase your chances of winning!
     - Note: These tips only applies when you are alone, while waiting for your summons.
How to Dodge Attacks
     - Get close to your target's attack range then quickly move back to observe their
attack animation. If you can land an attack before dodging, that's also good. If your enemy has a very wide range, move to it's back instead if there are no enemies behind. Always remember their attack animations for future use.
     - This is a very useful method to delay the advancement of your enemies. Do this all
the time specially at the start of your defense to get more points for summons or to quickly upgrade your
Leadership Lvl for more space!

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Melee Enemies
     - Get close to your enemy and start throwing arrows. Let your target come close to
you then attack with your sword to knock them back. Move forward then keep them busy with knock backs or stay and attack with your bow. Repeat until your target is destroyed.
     - Some enemies like bosses are immune to knock backs, so the best way is to
attack them with your bow. Attack with sword then dodge to delay movement.

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Mid-Range Enemies
     - Use your bow. Get close to their range to only dodge and delay their movements.
     - Most of them can't be knocked back and can also deal high damages.

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Archers
     - Simply attack target with your Sword to keep it busy with knock backs.

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Healers
     - You'll hate them because they will only heal your attacks LOL! Specially when
you are playing Zombies Rising! Just try to keep their distance away from their allies by attacking them.

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Fast Enemies
     - Enemies that ignores you and your allies to attack the Sacred Gate!
     - Attack with your bow then quickly step back a little then attack with your sword
to knock it back. Quickly step back a little again then attack with your bow. Repeat steps until your target is destroyed.

Normal Attack: 1 on 1 vs Flying Enemies
     - Always step back and use your bow to attack.

Normal Attack: vs Grouped Melee Enemies
     - Attack with bows, get close to knock back possible targets, then move in and
out of their attack range to dodge and delay their movements.

Normal Attack: vs Grouped Mid-Range Enemies
     - Attack with bows then move in and out of their attack range to delay them.

Normal Attack: vs Grouped Archers
     - It is possible to attack them head on using knock backs. Just watch your
Health bar and move out when it gets low.
     - If they can freeze you, it is better to move back and try to delay them.

Normal Attack: vs Grouped Fast Enemies
     - This time, if an enemy passed you, run back and stand beside your Gate.
Attack them with knock backs to keep them away from the Sacred Gate.

Normal Attack: vs Mixed Enemies!
     - Most of the time, you'll be using your bow for attacking. Delaying their melees
would be harder now because of the archers behind them.
     - Sneak Attacks: To perform a Sneak Attack, simply ignore melee enemies in
front of you and attack their archers instead. This will greatly cut their damage output or survivability!
     - Use Sushi or Rotten Sushi to replenish your health.
