    How to get rune boxes? I've killed many monsters, invade & attack others but still didn't get any, any idea? Thanks
    I found my rune boxes from attacking monsters and foes. Currently in Mountain of Blessings.

    How and where do you get the magic keys? How do you access them.

    Will a magic key guarantee you a rare gem? I have 28 rune boxes, and 8 rare gems. I really want to get the last two monsters to help me. I am willing to purchase 5 dollars worth of diamonds if I know I buy the magic key and actually get a rare gem from the chest. Cause over the last 3 days I have got allies :(, low amounts of gold :(, a couple of worthless items :, I just need two more rare gem's to get the last two guys. So if anyone can tell me if the magic key guarantees me a rare gem then I will gladly pay the 5 dollars for the diamonds to get the magic key.

    I have the distinct feeling the magic key just gets you something, not a automatic rare gem. That is not worth buying the diamonds to me. :(

    There is some mentioning abt having to buy armors and staff . Does it mean that you have to buy armor for everyone of your units? I know it sounds dumb but can someone please clarify it for me ? Thanks.

    duh

    Yes - that does sound dumb. You must buy weapons and armour for your units. Go to your PROFILE under the MENU. To the right of your ATTACK DEFENCE stats there is a "i". This will tell you if you have the correct number of your units for your number of allies and armour weapon requirements.

    I've been playing for a month or so and have been trying to get my income per hour up. I'm at about 1,600. Whenever I look at my opponents they seem to make more, however I always have twice as many money buildings and they're leveled substantially higher than theirs. My buildings are also the latest available for our level. Is there something simple I'm doing wrong?

    Weird

    I am level 76 with an income of 3500. I have completed level 1 mastery of all missions.

    Here are some tips for advanced players:

    1. Upgrade your vault as soon as you can.

    2. Start with Riflemen, Centurions and Ornithopters while trying to upgrade for lvl 10 breeding den or gnomish workshop.

    3. Forget about magic units - too fragile to be of use

    4. Use skill upgrades to increase Hero strength and Stamina

    5. Avoid battle unless you are sure of victory. What's the point of winning 1,000 if you lose 2,000 in units?

    6. Ensure you have the maximum number of allies for your level - the maximum number of units and that you have enough armour and weapons.

    Finally - don't camp. It is a stupid waste of time that holds no benefits for this game.

    I forgot to answer that question. If their income per hour is higher than yours with fewer buildings and upgrades, it is probably a bug. People have noticed it already. But buildings aren't the main source of income later on. Battle and missions are.

    Check their cottages. It could be that they have just leveled their buildings that have the quickest turn around so their IPH may be misleading. Personally I like to level my silo's and stables that have 18~24 hour turn arounds just so you get a decent amount of cash when you collect. Of course they then make better targets for others though.

    I'm not sure I entirely agree with this. Its not often mentioned but you lose way more units in attack than you do in defense. So even a high casualty priest works well in defense. But if you dont have enough units and use your priests in attack then yeah they will fall like flies. So to ensure this doesnt happen I would combine then with the battering rams so you effectively end up with an 8 attack and 17 def unit for 650g.

    It is possible to lose units in battle with others. Is it possible to lose unit armor or unit weapons as well?

    Yes you lose units in battle but you cant lose armor or weapons. So weapons and armor are basically indestrictable parts of your att/def. This is undoubtly why some of the big spenders in the game just purchase armor and weapons with pruchased gold.

    I just began yesterday, so this may look like a stupid question.
    But how do you (easily) increase your attack/defense? ​

    The short answer is to buy units (troops) they increase attack and defense. I also suggest reading the beginners guild on the community page of kingdom age very useful. Good luck.

    Good point and to broaden further one must understand when looking to increase attack and defense your scores will only go up by the greater difference of the unit you replace. ( For beginning players this tends not mater due to total unit count is rarely met ) when you have a total unit count above your maximum each unit you buy replaces the weakest unit you have and your attack and defense score see the increase of deference. ( Unit count = 3x number of allies / 10 allies = 30 units that can be used in Battle).

    Example: (simple case) if Foot Soldier (attack 1 /defense 1) is your lowest unit in battle, when you purchase a Pikeman (attack 2/ defense 3) it will increase your total attack by +1 and defense by +2 .

    Now one must also understand that the troops used for attack and defense can be different or the same dependent on total units available. If the units available are less than or equal to 3 x number of allies then all troops will fight, if more than you will begin to have two armies one used for defense another for attack with most likely top end units fighting on both. The units with the highest attack value will be use for attack and units with highest defense for defense.

    Thus no troops are utterly useless or to fragile to use if used correctly

    I have been playing for a few weeks and have several offers of advice. My first overall advice is that this is a game of patience. Time is your ally.

    1. Get to 25 allies as soon as possible. Get allies by invading other people (you don't actually attack at this point) and select rival profile and look into the comments part for people spamming their ids. You can also see the strength of your rival at this point and the gold they to see if they are worth attacking. Once you have allies you can visit them daily for 25 free gold x 25 allies is 625 free gold every day (max free gold this each day).

    2. It is pretty safe to level to level 15 pretty quickly...beyond this you should wait to make sure you have all money buildings for each level before moving forward. You should always be constantly upgrading, building, expanding your vault and expanding your kingdom.

    3. Focus on defense early. The siege workshop is your best avenue early on. The ballista offers 9 defense at level 3. And then the blimp at level 7 offers a whopping 17. I found the other buildings only useful for quests. Get simple units early as that is all you can afford, but after that focus on quality.

    4. You get three units for your army for every ally you have. Make sure you have enough weapons and armor for them. Cheap is key early. Money is better spent on units as that provides the best attack/defense for gold value. I always get the tavern twins for 8 gold and the footmans leather for armor at 32 gold each. Just having them makes a huge difference in attack/defense.

    5. Always vault all your gold. People won't bother attacking you if they don't get anything out of it. I have only been raided a few times and even if they are much stronger than you, they will only attack once and then search for better rewards elsewhere. Conversely if you are raiding someone and they don't yield much, move on. Always check your opponents attack defense before raiding them.

    6. Upgrading money buildings is tricky. If you are someone that can check the game frequently, you are better upgrading farms and cottages as they provide the most cash quickly and frequently. Whereas as if you only want to check a few times a day then you want to upgrade silos. You also have to weigh the benefits of cost and time. Higher level upgrades take longer and are more expensive than lower level upgrades.

    7. You should also monitor your allies. You can have 5 allies for every level. If you have good defensive units that are equipped, you can have as many allies as you want, but this also put you in more elite company on raids. I choose to have my allies near the max.

    8. If you find yourself getting destroyed, remove some allies, don't level and focus on upgrading buildings and units. If a few days your picture will improve greatly and it's much better than restarting. This process is known as turtling.

    9. Unless you are independently wealthy, don't waste money on the jewels. You can get some cool units but at what price. The game also makes it real easy to accidentally waste large numbers of gems on reducing upgrade times. If you do spend gems, get the units you want immediately and don't stockpile the gems. Conversely, never raid or invade a gem player. If you go to their kingdom, look for gem buildings. If they have them, move on.

    10. This should get most people going early on good luck and feel free to look me up 644-935-173 I will accept all allies if I have room.

    Allies

    Things to know;

    1). The number allies one can have is 5x their current level (level 10 can have 30 allies).

    2). The number allies one has determines how many units that can be used in player vs player battles and raids. 3 units per each ally ( 30 allies allows for 90 units).

    3). Ally requests once accepted immediately take available ally openings once all opening filled all remaining accepted allies fill backend queue for next opening once player levels up. ( level 10 player has accepted 34 allies only 30 will count until level 11 when 4 remaining accepted allies will be counted)

    4). Visiting an ally every 24hrs gains you 25 gold. (25allies visited = 625 gold every 24hrs) **max is 25 allies on can visit - thanks BlackBeltMikey :)

    5). Allies cannot attack each other.

    Just an FYI...the max allies visited that will pay is 25. You can visit more, but you won't receive gold.
