In attacking with fire, one should be prepared to meet five possible developments:

  • When fire breaks out inside the enemy’s camp, respond at once with an attack from without.
  • If there is an outbreak of fire, but the enemy’s soldiers remain quiet, bide your time and do not attack.
  • When the force of the flames has reached its height, follow it up with an attack, if that is practicable; if not, stay where you are.
  • If it is possible to make an assault with fire from without, do not wait for it to break out within, but deliver your attack at a favorable moment.
  • When you start a fire, be to windward of it. Do not attack from the leeward.

A wind that rises in the daytime lasts long, but a night breeze soon falls.

In every army, the five developments connected with fire must be known, the movements of the stars calculated, and a watch kept for the proper days.

The tactics you choose also depend on the variations of the energy cycle. These are also considerations about what shot to choose and how to execute it well.

  • When your opponent is on a down cycle or distracted, become more aggressive.
  • When he is on an up cycle, become more defensive.
  • When you are on the up side, become more aggressive.
  • When you are on the down side, become more defensive.
