How to Improve Your Gameplay


Watch Unit Upkeep

Growing your army and making it as big as possible can be tempting. But there is a cost that comes with this, and you need to know it before you can work towards a massive army correctly.

Most units cost mana to keep, as well as gold. Summoning units with Mana from tomes incurs a Mana upkeep per turn, similar to Gold units. Also, maintaining unit-enhancing spells and associated Mana costs can quickly deplete your Mana reserves from 2,000 to 200.

Stack your Army with Heroes

If you want to make your army even more powerful, you can stack multiple heroes in one army. This will make your army unbeatable. You will only be able to stack units of the same tier in one army, so ensure you have a few heroes in the same tier before you try.

How to Unlock New Heroes


Unlocking new heroes is vital to growing your empire. You can unlock heroes by using new Tomes of Magic or recruiting old heroes. As you progress in the game, you unlock a new Tome of Magic. When selecting a Tome of Magic, you get specific bonuses such as an affinity point or a hero in the same tier as the Tome of Magic. This is the first method you can use to get more heroes.

The second method requires you to have a resource called the draft. When you seize a city and imprison its inhabitants, you can draft their heroes to your army. This is a smart way of getting more heroes, right?

How to Upgrade Outposts


Once the outpost is established, players can directly interact with it, allowing their heroes to roam freely. By selecting an outpost, players can spend gold on building structures like work camps, stone walls, and watchtowers. These structures become valuable when the outpost becomes a city.

Players must decide which population to use for the city, as it affects the types of units they can create. It's essential to watch the faction's city cap to avoid penalties. Building multiple outposts can be a cost-effective way to claim territory quickly.
