  • To train soldiers, you need to build a garrison. Upgrade the garrison to unlock new and stronger troops. Build more garrisons and you will be able to train multiple troops at the same time.

  • Building and upgrading factories will allow you to train your troops faster, as well as unlock more advanced troops.

  • Another way to unlock more advanced troops is by building a science center and doing research. Certain troops require a minimum level of garrison, in combination with a certain researched skill.

  • The science center is good for more than just war though: you can also do agricultural and mining research, increasing the efficiency of your resource gathering.

Battles

  • In the world around you, there are several areas you can conquer. In the world map, these areas are divided into tiles, such as a lake, a forest, or other cities. The number next to them shows the level of the location: the higher the level, the stronger the enemies.

  • TIP: To come best prepared, send out a spy before you choose to attack an area. Spying will show you what kind of enemies, and how many, there are in a given area. This way you can make sure you train and send a force strong enough to conquer the area.
  • When you have trained your forces strong enough to conquer the world, choose your troops and send them out to the area you wish to conquer.

Last start-up tip

  • At the beginning of the game, you get a good amount of starting resources, and as you complete quests, you will earn even more. To get things up and running quickly, follow the quests and just build and upgrade all your base buildings as soon as you can.

  • You will reach a point where you will actually have to start saving for new buildings and upgrades, and that is the moment to slow down. But until then, just spend like there’s no tomorrow. And before you know it, you will have your own dragon to fight by your side.
