Wars

Wars are an important part of Kingdoms at War. Without them how would we settle disputes :-)? In order to be in a war, you must be in a clan that is warring.

Starting a War – To start a war you first must be an owner/admin of a clan. You must then challenge another clan. The challenged clan has 12 hours to accept the war or else the challenge is discarded. To accept the war, you must be an owner/admin of a challenged clan. It takes 3 votes for a war to be accepted (or less, depending on how many admins you have). It takes one vote to reject a war. You have 24 hours from when the war is challenged until the war starts.

During a War – During a war the objective is to make as much plunder as you can. Also, whenever you attack someone or steal from someone in a war a certain percentage of how much you take is deducted as “war tax” and goes towards your clan’s plunder. A picture of war tax is coming up.

To view how much your clan has made click on clan and then view war and it will show the amount of plunder your clan has raised, a link to your clan’s war roster, how many succesful attacks, steals, assassinations, and scouts your clan has done, and how long is left in the war. It will also show the same for the other clan.

After a War – After a war you can view how much plunder you and your clanmates raised individually. To do this you click clan, war history, details, player stats, and boom. Plunder raised by individuals. Also, a certain amount of gold is released to each player on the winning team. This is taken from the war tax and the more plunder you raise, the more you’re rewarded.

Getting Started

Getting Started

Now, I’m going to try and walk you through the beginning phases of Kingdoms at War.

To start off, do the quest “Excavate” until it is mastered. After that, do the quest “The Hunt for Treasure” until you are out of troops.

After you are out of troops, select a target from the battle list that has a “good reward” and steal from them 5 times. Then find another that has a “good reward” and steal from them 5 times. Continue this until you are you of spies.

When you are out of spies, sell your guild and build a workshop on the land. Also, buy as many lands as you can at this time and build workshops, stables , or barracks on the lands.

After you have done this, wait until your troops regenerate to 400 at least.

When you are finished regenerating, look for a player that has 400 attack and 200 defense. Attack this person 5 times. Regenerate to 400 troops again.

While you are waiting to regenerate, find a different 400 attack and 200 defense player to attack. When you are at 400 troops again, attack this person 5 times.

Repeat the above step continuosly.

As soon as you have enough gold to buy land, buy land. Build a workshop, barrack, or stable on it. Continue this until you have 9 lands. If you ever have to step out for real life, do the quest “The Hunt for Treasure” until you have 250 troops and then do the quest “Excavate” until you have no troops left.

Once you have 9 lands you should start upgrading your buildings. Attack people or do quests for money and you should be fine! It would also be wise to get a spy building on your tenth land!

Also, a good idea is to enter a referral code. You can find one in the referral code forums (see forums section for more information). Make sure that the person’s code that you’re adding offers a volley and lists peoples names that enter their code. Also, check their thread to make sure that there are no people complaining about not getting their volley.

This guide, if followed correctly, should get you to 9 lands quickly and easily. If you want to learn more, I’d suggest looking at the “Making Money” section.

Making Money

The following is a list of simple and easy ways to make gold.

Attacking – Attacking is the most obvious way of making money. If you attack someone, you get gold depending on how strong the enemy is.

Stealing – Stealing is also an obvious way to make money. If you steal from someone, you get gold depending on how strong the enemy is.

Being Hired/Volleyed – Being hired gets you some good money as well. Each time you’re hired, you get gold. The amount of gold you get goes up every time you’re hired, capping at the hire cost of 75million giving you 1million every time you’re hired.

Hiring/Volleying Allies – Hiring/Volleying Allies is one of the best ways of making money. Please view the Allies/Volleying section for more information.

Wars – Wars have potential to make you lots of money or none. See the wars section for more information.
