Campaign Map

  • Use different heroes: Use different heroes on the campaign map to earn achievements and rewards.
  • Calendar of events: It is in your best interest to follow the event calendar.

Protecting Your Castle

When you close the game at bedtime.

From citadel buff:

  • It is recommended to wear the shield for 8 hours.
  • If you are f2p or want to preserve the shield or coins, you must put on a free shield every day before going to sleep by clicking on Piece shield. A shield is prepared within two hours and continues on the castle for 5 hours and has a cooldown period of 10 hours, so the ideal time for it is every day before going to sleep.
  • Try as much as possible to leave the resources inside the bag and use them when needed so that the enemies do not loot them.
  • Don’t forget to put your best heroes to protect the castle wall by clicking on the wall, then garrison, then assign heroes.
  • Develop the guard tower to the maximum extent you can reach to cause some damage to enemies during defense.

Gathering Resources

Make Sure, that after your City hast reached Level 10, that you also Upgrade your Houses (for villagers!) And the resources gathering buildings!

After a resource buildings has reached Level 10, you can assign 4 instead of 3 villagers, which significally boost your gathering in idling.

I hope you found this useful. Wishing you luck!
