While gathering food to prepare for migration in Crab God is very important, protecting the shell-shaped Temple of the Tide that holds it and the Crab God's heir is arguably even more important. If invasive species make their way to your Temple and destroy it, your migration ends and you'll have to start over completely.

How to defend your Temple of the Tide in Crab God

There are a few different ways to effectively protect the Temple. The most obvious of them is by assigning the Hunter Role to your Crablings (see our guide for how to assign Roles) as the need arises each nightfall. Picking Traits that boost stats like health, attack power, and movement speed can help your Hunters eliminate threats quickly before they swarm your unarmed Crablings and destroy the Temple.

However, more than having Hunters at your disposal, the most vital means of defense for your Temple is actually your Builder(s). Aside from clearing out obstacles and smashing clams, they can build incredibly effective Wall barriers along the stage path (as seen above) that slow down enemies significantly and also set Traps to damage enemies that step on them.

How to enable Crablings to build Walls and Traps

For your Builders to be able to craft those, however, you first have to unlock them as permanent buffs by cleansing and fulfilling Ritual Stones. To do so, you have to complete 2-3 chosen tasks, such as offering a certain amount of Food or Favor or raising the population of a specific sea creature. Once you've done that, the Ritual Stone will give you three different buff options to choose from, which will likely include the ability to build Walls or Traps. These should be unlocked as soon as possible.

With those abilities in your arsenal, you should send out at least one or two Builders at the beginning of each stage. One to clear obstacles (this can take at least half a day) and the other to start building Walls or Traps where possible. This will ensure that your Temple stays well-protected each day.

Also remember to repair the ones that get damaged or broken, and also upgrade your Walls as high as possible. As long as you have Favour to use, your Walls can be upgraded multiple times, to the point that they're nearly impenetrable and can last multiple days.
