Each troop has four stats, measured from zero to five stars- attack, defense, speed and health. Research is long and odious, but you can unlock more advanced troops with better statistics, which will make war efforts far easier. Go to the academy, and start all of the combat related researches, such as infantry attack and defense, ranged attack and defense, and cavalry attack and defense. Once you level those up a bit, you’ll start unlocking more advanced troops.
Start training those advanced troops, but since this is a numbers game, whether you train beginning or advanced troops, train as high a number of them as you can. Be sure to include the siege weapons too, because they will easily be able to break down defenses that other players build on their city walls.
Your hero has a huge effect upon your statistics. You can level them up, which earns you skill points, which can then be spent to upgrade troop attack, troop training and other combat related skills (as well as non combat related skills). Boosts can be purchased using gold, which then apply to all troops that are under the hero’s command.
Crafting is another big thing. Your hero can equip weapons, armor and accessories, all of which afford different boosts to every troop under his or her command. Crafting materials can be combined to make better crafting materials, and then used to create even better equipment. Gems can then be added into the gem slots for each piece of equipment.
It is possible for your hero to die during battle. If your hero dies, you can then hire a new hero. Your Gymnos, one of the most forgotten buildings in the entire game, will allow you to transfer your old hero’s experience points over to your new hero. The more you upgrade the Gymnos, the more experience it is possible to save.
If you attack someone with a prison and lose, it’s possible for your hero to be imprisoned. They can then be killed if the player you tried to attack has an altar – however, if you attack them again and win, you’ll have a chance at breaking your hero out of prison and getting them back into your city.
