Crystals[edit | edit source]

What are crystals used for?[edit | edit source]

Magic crystals can be used for buying time and other resources.

How do I buy crystals?[edit | edit source]

You can buy crystals through the game store or discount package.

If you buy crystals outside the game store or discounted packs, your account will be considered in violation of our "User Agreement". We regret that will we no longer be able to provide you service and will reserve the right to ban accounts which purchase crystals from a third party.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

Can I sell buildings or items I don't want?[edit | edit source]

You cannot sell your buildings. In the game, every building has its own purpose. It can help in leveling-up or improve the fun of the game, so we don't recommend players to sell it. But you can move buildings.

How do I increase resource production?[edit | edit source]

You can construct more Gold Mines or Wineries to increase productivity. The productivity of the Gold Mine or Winery on the ground will be multiplied. If your castle reaches level six, you can unlock the Statue of Azathoth to increase your resource productivity.

Will buildings work normally during upgrades?[edit | edit source]

Almost all buildings will not function while being upgraded, so upgrades should be planned out. If it is urgent, you can use crystals to complete the upgrade process of the building.

Can resources be directly converted into other resources? For example, are wine and gold exchangeable?[edit | edit source]

Every resource in the game has its own value and use and its production method is different too, so we don't recommend resources exchange.

Can you explain the price of the worker cottage to me?[edit | edit source]

You can have a maximum of 5 worker cottages. You receive two of them for free when you begin the game. The price for the remaining three worker cottages are 600 crystals, 900 crystals, and 1200 crystals.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Why is someone sending troops from inside my castle?[edit | edit source]

Two connected spaces will become the defensive loopholes, so you have to be careful when you are placing your buildings. Of course, you can also use this rule to attack someone else's castle.

I was attacked by a high level player![edit | edit source]

The player matching is dependent on the amount of the medals. If a high level player only has few medals, it is possible to be matched with a lower level opponent. If the opponent has a higher level than you, he cannot plunder lots of resources from your castle.

How can I calculate the amount of resources that can be plundered?[edit | edit source]

During plundering, the amount of the resources which can be plundered depends on the level difference between you and your opponent:

  • If the level of your palace is lower than your opponent, the percentage of the resources you can plunder will be higher.
  • If the level of your palace is higher than your opponent, the percentage of the resources you can plunder will be lower.

How are medals calculated?[edit | edit source]

Medal amounts reflect your degree of strength in the "multi-player game". The more the medals you have, the stronger you are. When you are playing in "multi-player game", the matching system will help you to find a suitable opponent depending on your medal count. You can earn more medals when you win in battle and you will lose medals when you lose in battle. The medal amount you win or lose depends on the number of medals you and your opponent have. If you defeat your opponent with more medals, you can get more medals from your opponent. You can lose a maximum of 100 badges in one battle.

What is the shield used for?[edit | edit source]

When you have a shield, other players cannot plunder your resources from your castle. When your castle is attacked by other players, you can get a shield for a certain period of time. The more seriously your castle is damaged, the longer the shield you can have. You can buy a shield in the store too.

Note: If your castle is attacked during "Territory battle" and "Sam challenge", you cannot get a shield.

What is the meaning of shield cooling time?[edit | edit source]

You cannot always buy a shield to protect your castle. After you buy a shield, you have to wait for a while in order to buy the same shield.

Hero[edit | edit source]

How can I get heroes?[edit | edit source]

In the game, the mighty hero can be summoned through a portal or created by combining hero fragments!

What is a hero fragment? What is the function of hero fragments?[edit | edit source]

Hero fragments are a green, spiral, gem-like item. Collecting a certain amount of hero fragments can summon different level of hero!

Why can't I use my hero?[edit | edit source]

Heroes can only be used after garrisoning them on a Hero Throne, no matter it is defense or attack.

How do I increase my amount of battle heroes?[edit | edit source]

Upgrade your castle to unlock the Hero Throne. When you reach level 17, you can obtain 3 Hero Thrones. The amount of the battle heroes increases at the same time and only the battle heroes who are garrisoned in a Hero Throne can participate in the battle.

How do I increase the level of a Hero faster?[edit | edit source]

Let your hero participate in more battles in order to gain more experience value. Let your hero learn a "talent" skill in order to gain more experience value.

Use the "Devour" function on the Hero Properties UI to consume certain resources in order to gain more experience value. You can use the "Devour" function several times a day. Unlock the Statue of Azathoth to increase the number of Devours a day.

My hero is already level nine. Why can't I continue upgrading?[edit | edit source]

After a hero reaches level nine, a certain amount of bloodstones have to be devoured in order to complete the evolution and continue the upgrade. Evolved Heroes can strengthen your hero and can gain an additional passive skill. Before evolution, heroes cannot gain much experience value.

My hero died in battle! What should I do?[edit | edit source]

Not to worry, your hero has a powerful spirit and he is not actually dead. When a hero has died in battle, he will go back to the castle and recover. When his health is half recovered, he can participate in battle again. You can also use the "Heal immediately" option on the throne in order to jump into the battle immediately!

What happens if I draw a hero I already have?[edit | edit source]

When you draw a hero you already have, you will get a hero badge. Collect enough heroes badges to get +10% attack and health for the heroes. You can have up to maximum +50% upgrade.

How do I get more hero skills?[edit | edit source]

Once your hero completes evolution, a new passive skill can be obtained.

What is the highest level of every kind of hero?[edit | edit source]

  • Common hero: level 29
  • Rare hero: level 39
  • Epic hero: level 50

Guild/Alliance[edit | edit source]

How do I join or create a Guild?[edit | edit source]

Log in to the game, then click the Guild button. There will be a pop-up window to select "Create" or "Join" the Guild.

If the guild leader is not online for a long time, what should I do?[edit | edit source]

We recommend a member of the Guild to contact him/her through social channels, since it's not good to be rudderless. If the leader really disappears, we recommend you quit the Guild and join another active Guild.

If the leader wishes to step down, can he/she appoint someone else?[edit | edit source]

The leader does not have the right of passing on the position, so he/she cannot appoint someone else. After the leader quits the Guild, the system will automatically transfer the title of the leader to the member with the highest prestige within the Guild.
