    Did you ask what units to use to defend or how to defend? I imagine you have figured out that only dedicated air units hit the herald,To defend honestly is usually not possible unless you have alot of hades and seekers.I use 6 of each and adra.If your base is strong enough fill it with hades and seekers.My hades and seekers are lvl 12 and even 6 of each takes a little while to kill the herald.Online will be easier but it is a very strong unit.I dont think it matters what turrets you have ,mine are max level turrets and lvl 13-14 platforms and it does not seem to make much a difference.

    You can run, but you will die trying.

    Many folks have spread their base out to max the time it takes for the slow moving herald to get to them all. Removing things from around your air defense platforms that the herald can target buys time. Really, there isnt a perfect defense against the herald but in fact doing as much damage to the herald as possible.

    This game doesn't need to be expensive.  It's free, unless you really feel the need to pay. And the game has always been like this -- some fancy new toy comes out that can smash most bases by itself, everyone gets annoyed.  Then people either figure out how to counter it, or kixeye releases a new unit the next month that counters it.

    Well said everyone. As for me, I am only able to take down a herald attack when I am online. And yes, hades has been the most effective in defeating it.

    Change your heavy turrets to hunter missiles and add hades and seekers as your base defenders. I would also make sure all your platforms airborne cause if they are not, they will be easy targets for the herald.

    HERALD is a high altitude unit. this means that anything that can shoot ground will NOT hit the herald. Try using Hades in your base. Normally when I am offline I put a few hades and they do some serious damage to the herald.

    well a few tips  this may not outright kill 1 offline but it migt scar it 1 spend out your base this keeps the hearld from outright useing splash to kill everything 2 upgrade platforms the higher lv  even the hearld has a dps limit  the longer it has to take to kill something the more its under fire 3 switch to 2-3 hunters and 4-5 aa turrets this will get it under fire from alot of stuff 4 empty your base of reso and troops when going offline if you are anoncoiner and are in a warzone this will save you on repair time and  give them a hellow victory due to not haveing spend more reso then what they gained 5 for online have 1-3 hades seekers or temps  and what other tank like phinx and what not  use the anti air tanks to hit and run vs the hearld even that air even upgraded to omega can move so fast and the other units in your base (bunker troops as well ) shood be used to take out his other units and air  to make him do mistakes in the fight if he starts loseing his hearld  you still might get a dome but still a hellow victory if he has to spend 3x more coin or repair time then what he wanted

    The best options for Herald defense at the current state of the game are to have any of following in your base. However, it's highly unlikely that you will kill the Herald but you would at least be able to hurt it.
    • Hunter Missile Turret
    • Hades (Corpus)
    • Seeker (Sentinels)
    All other options won't be able to truly hurt the Herald at the current state of the game.
