StarClan must have shared their wisdom with this article, because it was previously featured on the front page.
Each of the five Clans have their own unique battle skills. Generally, each tactic is used only by the Clan that created it, though some skills are known to all five Clans. Each of these tactics are shown in-depth in the book Battles of the Clans, while the mutual Clan attacks are shown in Secrets of the Clans.
Move quietly and communicate with signals. Cracking twigs, startled birds, and rustling bracken will tell the enemy exactly where you are.
Keep downwind of the trespassers so that your scent doesn't give you away.
Look for freshly broken twigs, overturned leaves on the forest floor, remains of prey, or a clump of fur caught on a bramble. Any animal that moves through the forest leaves behind signs that its passed by-and signs like this could lead you straight to the invaders.
Keep your mouth open to search for unfamiliar scents. Be careful: if there is scent when there is no breeze to carry it through the forest, it could mean that your enemy is very close by.
Light-colored pelts are easily seen against brown and green foliage, so stay in the thickest cover. Keep low- the enemy will be looking for movement at normal head height, not close to the ground.
Never miss an opportunity to perfect your tracking ability. In the nursery, kits sneak up on their mothers and pounce with their moss-soft paws. Apprentices leap out on one another from behind bushes and tree stumps. These are more than just games. One day, these skills could save your life and defend your Clan.
Crouch behind the enemy with your patrol unseen.
Graywing created many battle techniques especially for WindClan. He came up with these tactics using small stones and marks on the floor of his den.
Approach from Above Your Enemy
Wait for the leader of the patrol to give the Attack Tail Signal.
Charge down your high ground; your enemy will be weakened by having to fight uphill.
Use the Light from the Sun
Attack your enemy with the sun behind you, which should dazzle the enemy and block their view.
Know Where the Wind is Coming From
If there is a strong wind, it should blow from behind you; that should hold them back and blur their vision with dust. However, if stalking, make sure the wind is blowing toward you, as it could give away your scent if blowing toward your enemy.
Conceal the Size of Your Force
Have your attackers in sight from a distance.
There are two options: either you can group your warriors together tightly, making you seem like a small attacking force. Your enemy may become overconfident, which is likely to lead to them making poor strategic decisions. Or, if your warriors spread out single-file, it will seem impossible to pass to advancing enemy warriors and may intimidate them.
