Throne Wars: Top 10 Tips, Cheats and Tricks, part 2

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Welcome to the top five Throne Wars tips and tricks! Click here to go back to the number 6 through 10 tips and tricks for the game.

5) Have more than one settlement.
It takes a couple of steps to do this. First, you have to go to your castle and research Administration. If your tech level is not high enough for this, then upgrade your castle and do other forms of research in the castle to increase it. Then, find a blank spot somewhere on the outer map and set up a settlement on the spot.

4) Upgrade Counter-Espionage as high as you can.
This allows you to detect spies or attackers, and thus to be ready for attacks. This especially works for if you have multiple settlements, because you can send your armies over from all of your settlements to defend the one that is going to be attacked; or, if your army is still small, you can send them from the targeted settlement to another settlement to avoid them getting killed by the other player.

3) Cart your resources from a targeted settlement to an untargeted settlement.
You need to have at least two settlements that are very close to each other for this one, but once you buy the market and train up a bunch of carts, use them to cart resources from a settlement that is being targeted for an attack, to a safe settlement. Then, when other players attack, they will get no resources, making the attack completely pointless on the part of the attacker.

2) Capture an enemy hero in order to earn more silver.
How does this work? Your enemy hero, when captured, will be held in one of the cells inside the City Guard. You will be able to put a price on them, which will then prompt the kingdom who lost the hero to come and pay the price for the hero. However, don’t set the price too high, or they will not pay. The rarer the hero, the higher the price will be.

1) Join up with an alliance.
Joining an alliance has all of the same benefits as having multiple settlements, except multiplied. You and your alliance members can send each other resources and troops, in order to back each other up, and even make plots to band together and take out other alliances’ members one by one. Alliance play is as deep as it gets in Throne Wars.

Throne Wars: Top 10 Tips, Cheats and Tricks

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Right now, there are very few iOS and Android strategy games that are as big as Throne Wars. While it is a relatively simple game, the multiplayer mode causes it to have far more strategy involved than you might expect, due to the dog-eat-dog nature of the game. If you don’t keep up, you’re going to get slaughtered quickly by other players, but if you learn quickly enough, you’re going to quickly rise to the top. Read on for the top ten tips and tricks for Throne Wars!

10) Upgrade your resource producing buildings as high as you can.
Iron, wood, and stone are the cornerstone of everything you do in this game, whether it be constructing buildings, researching, or training new troops. Upgrade the resource buildings as much as possible, or you’re going to quickly find yourself running out of things to do. The more you upgrade the resources, the more resources you’ll earn per hour.

9) Always check the Heroes tab for rare heroes to pop up.
Most of the time, if you go into the heroes tab you’ll see one or two star heroes available. It’s rare, but it is possible, that a three, four or five star hero will pop up every once in awhile. These heroes provide FAR bigger boosts to your kingdom and to your troops than the common, one star heroes will.

8) Protect your military first and foremost.
Your military is the key to dominating other players. If you are still building up your military to a competitive size, then when you get notified that an attack is coming your way, send your military out on a mission (especially on a mission to counterattack someone who is attacking you). Better to lose resources than to lose the military due to the high time cost of training troops.

7) Winning battles is a game of numbers.
There are only a few types of troops in Throne Wars – infantry, cavalry, archers, catapults and carts (which are a resource-lugging troop). As such, there are no advanced troops that will tilt the battle in your favor. Your only method of winning is to have MORE troops, especially as the attacker. As the defender, you have other methods of defense, but your troops are still the primary.

6) Beef up your city walls and your militia.
Level up the castle to increase your militia size. Do research inside the City Guard to cause your militia to become much stronger. Level up AND do research inside the City Wall to make your city more impenetrable, with or without your troops there to guard it.

Throne Wars Walkthrough, Wiki, FAQ and Beginner’s Guide, Part 3

Welcome to part three of the Throne Wars beginner’s guide! Click here to go back to part 2 of the guide.

Battling is where the gameplay really begins – you can grow your city and power it up all you want, but if you aren’t battling, then it doesn’t really matter much. You don’t get any beginner protection, so right off the bat, you can get your city ransacked by other players, and your resources stolen. Luckily, once you get strong enough, you can do the same thing right back.

When you attack, you can send a hero of your choice to spy first, which allows you to learn about what kind of troops and defenses the other player has, as well as what resources they have for you to steal. Then, you can send your troops over to attack. Infantry, cavalry, and archers are strong against their infantry, cavalry and archers, while catapults are best at breaking down the city walls.

It’s even possible to team up with other players, as well. You can send messages to any other player on the map, and you can send resources back and forth with other players. Bookmark other players as well, if you want to easily remember where they are so that you can send aid to each other, or so you can attack them over and over and farm them for resources.

To take the team concept even further, you can join alliances, or create one of your own. Being in an alliance will allow you to devise strategy with other players, send troops and resources back and forth, and very easily dominate other players on the map, especially those who are not in an alliance.

Having multiple cities will allow you to do similar things, except all by yourself. Researching administration, as previously mentioned, will allow you to start a new settlement. You can, of course, build and upgrade all of the same buildings all over again, as well as use every one of your settlements to train troops. Then, you can merge your troops together, for added attack power, or for added defense whenever you detect an attack.

Finally, gems are the premium currency of the game. You can either buy them in the store or earn free gems by gaining experience levels. Gems are mainly used to speed up construction, upgrades, research and troop training.

That’s all for the walkthrough of Throne Wars! Enjoy the game!

Welcome to part 2 of the Throne Wars beginner’s guide! Click here to go back to part one of the guide.

City defense is accomplished through two things. The first building is the city guard, which allows your civilian population to become your militia. Once you build the city guard, you can research to increase the strength of your militia, or the base size, while upgrading the castle itself while level up the size of the militia.

Your other method of defense is via the city wall. Your base fortification strength is increased each time that your city wall is upgraded. The higher the fortification strength is, the more troops it takes to break into your city and steal resources. Researches allow you to increase the strength of your town wall, as well as give an attack or a defense bonus to any of your troops that are stationed in the city when you’re attacked.

Your market, as previously mentioned, doesn’t just allow you to train carts. You can trade resources for other resources, as well as for silver, which is the main currency in the game, or to trade silver for resources. Just like many other buildings, there is research available in the market too, but for economic purposes.

The other two buildings that can be unlocked later are the university or the toolsmith. The toolsmith simply allows you to upgrade your resource buildings via research, while your university allows you to upgrade buildings up to the maximum level.

Every building that you build that has research available, has a “tech level”, and if your tech level is high enough, then you can unlock new research within the building. Your tech level is the level of the building, multiplied by the amount of completed research inside the building. If you have a level 6 building, and complete three researches in that building, that means its research level will be 18. So increase your tech level by upgrading your building or by doing research.

Throne Wars Walkthrough, Wiki, FAQ and Beginner’s Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Welcome to the walkthrough for Throne Wars, a new MMO strategy game for the iPhone, iPad and Android! Throne Wars is set in the medieval era, and in it you start off with a small village centered around a castle, and including various resource-producing buildings. Along the way, you will unlock troops to train, extra heroes to add to your kingdom, and better defenses, allowing you to go from a weak little village to a powerful kingdom. Read on for the beginner’s guide to Throne Wars!

Right when you begin Throne Wars, you will be taken through the basics using a tutorial. Your first task will be to build the three resource buildings. The woodcutter will produce wood, while the iron mine will produce iron and the stone quarry will produce stone. These will complete your first quests, and further quests will take you completely through the beginning.

Iron, stone, and wood are the cornerstone of your city. You’ll use them to build and upgrade new buildings, and to train your troops. Each successive upgrade to your resource buildings will allow you to earn more of that specific resource per hour. Building and upgrading your storage will not only give you a higher resource limit, but will designate a number of resources as “protected”, which prevents them from being taken by other players.

Your castle, of course, is where your city is run, and where most of your research can be done. Upgrade it to unlock more research. Warfare will unlock more military buildings, while Bureaucracy unlocks non-military buildings. Scout research warns you when an enemy army is approaching, while Administration allows you to build more settlements elsewhere, and Fortification allows you to upgrade the town wall.

The first troop that you can unlock is the infantry troops, which you can train from the barracks. Later on, you’ll be able to train archers from the archery range, catapults from the siege workshop, cavalry from the stables, and carts from the marketplace. Carts will allow you to ransack large numbers of resources from other players in battle, while cavalry, infantry and archers are strong against enemy troops, and catapults are strong against enemy walls.

Throne Wars Tips and Tricks Guide, Part 3: Even More Hints, Cheats and Strategies

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Welcome to part 3 of the Throne Wars tips and tricks guide! Click here to go back to part 2 of the guide.

Want to get more settlements for your kingdom? Upgrade Administration in your castle. Administration can be upgraded up to 5 times, and each upgrade allows you one additional city. This effectively multiplies the amount of troops that you can train at once and the amount of resources that you can earn at once.

This also allows you to strategize even further than normal with your troops. For example, if you are working on trying to build your army, put your Spy Defense to use to detect when someone is about to attack you, and then move your current troops to a different settlement. If your army is strong enough to defend, then do the opposite and send all of your troops over to the city that is about to be attacked.

Or, when you detect that someone has sent an army over to raid you, that means that their army is leaving its safe point, so immediately send your army over to counter-raid their army. This especially works well if you have a ton of carts, so that you can take massive amounts of resources.

If you want to do MASSIVE amounts of damage to someone, train troops in every single one of your settlements, then when you are ready to attack, send all of them over to one central settlement. Once they’re all there, then send all of them out at once to attack another player’s kingdom. Again, this works especially well if you have a ton of carts.

If you want to build up a brand new settlement quickly, use your carts from your older settlements to rapidly ship resources over to your new one. Do this rapidly until you are as built up as you need to be. Then repeat the same thing with more new settlements until your administration is maxed out.

Throne Wars: Attack Guide – How to destroy other players’ settlements

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Throne Wars is a dog-eat-dog game. If you don’t dominate other players, you’re going to eventually end up being dominated yourself. When you begin the game, you’ll be a little fish in a big pond, but the stronger you become, the faster you end up turning into the big fish. Strategy is required as well. Read on to find out how to totally dominate other players in Throne Wars!

Just like defense, attacking is a numbers game. Those numbers, to be more specific, are the number of troops you have, so make sure to unlock and build all of the troop buildings. Barracks, of course, allow you to train infantry, while archers are trained at the archery range, cavalry at the stable, and catapults are trained at the siege workshop. Train carts at the market (they are useful for carrying resources that are stolen from other players).

Upgrade your farm to increase the size of your potential army. Your food has to feed your troops, so once you upgrade your farm, you’ll be able to train an even bigger army.

Each troop training ground has various types of research that you can do. One type of research will increase that specific troop type’s attack, while the other will increase that type’s defense. This will apply to every single troop of that type, whether you trained them before or after the research.

Spying is important as well because it will allow you to look at what an enemy has going on defensewise, especially when it comes to the city wall and militia, which can be a game changer. Your hero will be the one who does the spying. Preferably, you should have a hero who gives you a bonus for spying, but even without a bonus, a higher-level hero will do better at spying.

Choose the size of your army depending on what you find when you spy on the other player, and change the distribution of your army, too. For example, to combat higher-level city walls, send more catapults. Send at least 1.5 times the number of troops that the enemy has, in order to account for boosts due to research, city wall defense, and militia.

And finally, winning is nothing if you don’t get to raid a large quantity of resources from a city. Send carts with your army in order to take resources at will.

Throne Wars: Defense Guide – How to protect your kingdom and settlements

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Throne Wars throws you right into the fray once you begin playing it. Unlike other MMO strategy games such as Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, Throne Wars doesn’t give you an initial protection time. Instead, your kingdom is fair game to be attacked right away, so the sooner that you figure out how to protect yourself and your stuff, the better. Read on for some tips and tricks on playing defense in Throne Wars!

The main key is your troop strength. You have four kinds of troops that are worthwhile on defense: Infantry, Archers, Cavalry, and Catapults. Carts have a minimal defense rating, but they can’t really attack back, ergo they don’t count. Increase the number of each troop, and increase each of their attack and defense with research that can be done at their specific training grounds (Barracks for Infantry, Archery Range for Archers, Siege Workshop for Catapults, and Stable for Cavalry).

When your troops are gone, though, it’s only your militia that will protect the town. Level up your castle to automatically increase the size of your militia. Your city guard is used to strengthen your militia, both by level ups and by research, plus your research can increase the base size of your militia.

Your city wall is your other line of defense. Upgrade it in order to increase your defense, especially your defense against catapults. Research Defense Architecture in order to increase the strength of the wall, and research both Traps and Siege Defense to increase the attack and defense of any troops that are currently stationed at the settlement.

If you want to protect your military, unfortunately, there is no “hide” or “evade” option, but you can accomplish the same thing in different ways. Send your troops off to one of your other settlements when someone else is attack. Alternatively, send them off to attack someone else while you’re getting attacked. You’ll lose more resources, but losing troops is EXTREMELY frustrating and can set you back far more. Plus, your walls and militia can still provide defense.

Finally, if you want to protect resource, upgrade your storage as high as you can. The higher the upgrade level, the more resources are protected from being stolen by attacking players.

Throne Wars: How to get more Gems, Silver, Food and Tech Levels

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Throne Wars is a fairly new iOS game that adds a bit of 3D to the usual MMO strategy style of gameplay. There are many kinds of resources and currency in the game. Gems are the most premium of all of the currencies in the game. Silver is the second most premium currency, and acts almost like a resource. Food is what it takes to feed all of your troops, while your Tech Level corresponds with how much research you are able to do. Read on for tips and tricks on how to get all four of these!

There is only one way to get more food, and that is by upgrading your farm. Food is not produced in the same way that wood, stone and iron are. Instead, there is a set amount of food, and a “over-under” number. If your troops are not well fed enough, then the food number will be negative or 0. If the food number is positive (has a plus sign next to it), you have enough food. Upgrade your farm to get back in the positives.

To increase the “tech level” of any building with available research, do one of two things. Level up the building, or do more research in the building. The tech level is the level of the building (castle, city guard, city wall, barracks, etc). multiplied by the number of researches that have been completed. For example, a level 5 castle that has had two researches completed will have a tech level of 10. When a third research is finished, that tech level will rise to 15.

There are a couple of ways to get silver. Silver can be earned as a reward for completing quests, or (more frequently) as a reward for leveling up. Otherwise, a good way to earn silver is to kidnap another player’s hero, and then hold the hero in the City Guard cells for ransom. The other player will have to pay you silver in order for you to free the hero, so kidnap an active player’s hero.

You can get free gems the same way that you get more silver – by gaining experience levels. Every so often (but not very frequently) a quest will appear that will earn you gems as a reward, but bonus gems are far more common from level ups.

Throne Wars: Resource Guide – How to get more wood, stone and iron

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Throne Wars is a new 3D-tinged MMO strategy game for the iOS and Android platforms, and with the upcoming release of the iPhone 5s and 5c, don’t be surprised to see it get a LOT more downloads. Like all games of its type, Throne Wars has resources that are required in order to train troops, construct buildings and do research, while will then allow you to construct better buildings and train more troops. Read on to find out how to get more resources in Throne Wars!

The simplest way to increase your resource numbers is to level up your Iron Mine (for iron), Stone Quarry (for stone) and Woodcutter (for wood). Each one of these buildings produces resources on an hourly basis, and every time that you level these buildings up, you’ll increase the amount of resources that they earn per hour.

You can only hold a certain amount of resources at one time, so increase this amount by upgrading your Storage. Your Storage building has a maximum amount of every resources, and a certain (much smaller) amount of protected resources, meaning that no matter how many times you get attacked and how strong the opposing army, these resources can’t be stolen.

Raid other kingdoms and figure out which ones make for easy resource gains. Be sure to take plenty of carts with you (you need the market to train carts) so that you can carry back a large quantity of resources at one time. Abandoned settlements (owned by players who no longer play) are the best for resources, because they are completely unprotected yet they continue to produce resources.

Many heroes will provide resource boosts if you make them the mayor of your town. Possibilities for special abilities include stone production, wood production, iron production, or storage space. Use silver to level up your heroes in order to increase the size of the bonuses.

Research Administration, and you’ll be able to build an entirely new settlement. The more settlements that you have, the more resource buildings you can build. You can then use carts to ship them back and forth between settlements.

Complete quests to earn resources quickly. The majority of your quests will award you with wood, iron and stone when you complete them, making these a very quick and easy way to maximize resources.
