 New Event Mechanic - Khan’s Revenge 

Khan's Revenge is an alliance event in which each alliance member can fight and defend against the Khan camp on the world map. 

Attacking the camp will earn you Khan tablets and increase its rage level. After each attack, the camp will have a cooldown period which can be skipped with rubies or time skips. 

Once a camp's rage level is full, you can taunt the Khan and trigger an attack on your castle. If you successfully defend your castle, you will receive Khan tablets and medals as loot that can be exchanged for special rewards.

Don't fear the attack of the Khan: Even if he breaches your defenses, he will not loot your castle or burn your buildings! 

Increasing the rage level of the Khan will help increase the camp's level. Each member of your alliance can help achieve this. A higher camp level means stronger defenses and more powerful attacks, but also more loot.



Additional information about this event you can find HERE.


  Wishing Well Changes


 As previously announced, our wishing well mechanic requires some maintenance. The reason for this is pretty simple: The way we first introduced the feature led to value decay of rubies and items you could purchase, thus creating an unbalanced situation. To stabilize the balance, we already reduced the amount of lucky pennies you could purchase in offers and receive as rewards. With this update, we want to take the next step and remove them from our rewards/offers pool and mercenary camp completely, meaning it will not be possible to obtain more of them for now.

 Don't panic! The wishing well will still be available for you to turn the pennies you already own into rubies, as originally intended. Additionally, you will have the chance to transform those pennies into valuable items for immediate use!

  •  There will be a new trader in front of your castle who exchanges lucky pennies for packages and items.
  • He will offer special troops and items such as horsetail standard and fast travel feathers.

  • This way you will get the chance to capitalise your lucky pennies much quicker and have access to several valuable items.

   Kingdom Resources

As you know, another important topic in our roadmap was kingdom resources. Our intention is to stop the exploit of looting resources in PvP battles in agreement with the opponent, and to reward players who loot resources from NPCs. We are also increasing the amount of kingdom resources you can receive from production buildings.

 

  • We will exclude all the loot effect exploits from PvP battles, meaning loot won’t be generated when the opponent does not have enough resources. Marauder and Equipment bonuses will still work during PvP battles, but will only increase the amount of resources you can loot, and not generate additional resources. The Marauder bonus on PvP will only affect the glory points earned but won't boost the loot against other players. This change will not affect Marauder and equipment bonuses during PvE battles.

  • Bonuses from the Hall of Legend, researches, alliances, and Berimond titles will no longer allow players loot more resources in battles against other players, foreign invaders and Bloodcrows.

  • From now on, you will receive and generate additional loot from bonuses received from Hall of Legends, research and Berimond titles against NPC targets only.

  • We will remove the alliance war loot bonus from all alliances and refund the costs for all the levels that have already been upgraded.

  • Instead of this bonus, all alliances can get a new permanent loot capacity bonus.

Let’s go more into detail of how the production of kingdom resources will change:

  • You will now have two kingdom resource production buildings with a productivity level of 100% instead of only one .

  • With this update, we will increase the production of kingdom resource buildings by around 60-80%. At certain upgrade levels, the increase will be even higher.

  • We will add two additional upgrade levels to the kingdom resource booster buildings: Dry storehouse, olive press, and glass works. Players will be able to reach an additional 20% production boost from these buildings. For those who already own level 2 or 3 of these buildings, we will automatically upgrade them to level 4 and 5 respectively (so they will get the 20% bonus for free). Furthermore, players will be able to upgrade these buildings to level 2 and 3 for resources instead of rubies.

  • The kingdom resources loot you can plunder from NPC targets will be drastically increased, except coal. This will mean players will receive more oil, glass, and iron when looting NPC targets.

  • We will significantly decrease the amount of kingdom resources required to upgrade legendary buildings. For example, the amount of iron needed to upgrade the Hall of Legends will be decreased by 40-60%. Additionally, you will no longer need any iron to upgrade your iron works and iron mines.

 

 Monthly content package

 Master builder changes

  • We have made some small adjustments to the master builder.

  • We will increase the maximum bonus provided from 25% to 35%, and also increase the number of levels from 5 to 35.

  • Each level will grant you an additional 1% bonus for fewer resources required when constructing and upgrading buildings.

  • For those who already own a master builder, we will automatically transfer the old level to new ones:

    • Old Level 1 -> New Level 5

    • Old Level 2 -> New Level 10

    • Old Level 3 -> New Level 15

    • Old Level 4 -> New Level 20

    • Old Level 5 -> New Level 25
