If you zoom out a it, you can easily find Marauders on the map as they have a rhombus icon.

When marauders are defeated, all troops that participated in the attack with receive rich rewards. Dispatching multiple armies or teaming up with your allies is a great way to maximize your rewards received from each marauder.

Marauders give a lot higher rewards than Barbarians, including the amount of XP, and you will also get Worn Leather Satchel, which will be used for exchanging rewards.

Marauders are considered as level 25 Barbarians so they are not hard to kill. It is recommended to send 5 dispatches at once to kill them to get the higher chance on getting the Satchels.

A rallying cry goes up throughout the land. Great armies assemble and prepare to enter the forgotten kingdom.

The scraps of parchment carried by the barbarians have brought forgotten wonders to light once more. It is now known that the tunnel beneath the Lost Temple leads to the hallowed lands of the barbarian tribes: the Lost Kingdom. The forefathers of civilization entered this kingdom during their Last Crusade and never returned. Today, it is time for us to take up their righteous cause once more…

  2. Upgrading units will award points equivalent to the different between the point rewards for each tier.

How to get Points

  1. Train 1 Tier 1 unit = 1 point
  2. Train 1 Tier 2 unit = 2 point
  3. Train 1 Tier 3 unit = 4 point
  4. Train 1 Tier 4 unit = 8 point
  5. Train 1 Tier 5 unit = 20 points

Stage 3: Clash of Civilizations

  • Objective: Defeating Marauder Encampments
  • Duration: 3 days

This event is very similar to King of Tribes.

  2. Marauder encampments can only be attacked by rally attacks. All governors who participate in the attack will receive the same number of individual crusade points.

Marauder Fortress

The marauders have constructed imposing strongholds all across the kingdom. Destroying them is the only way to gain entrance to the Lost Kingdom.

  1. You will only suffer minor losses from attacking marauder encampments. All slightly wounded units will recover once they return to the city.
  2. Attacking marauder encampments will expend action points, but action points will recover over time.
  3. When marauder encampments are destroyed, all troops that participated in the attack will receive rich rewards. Troops that dealt more damage to the encampment will receive greater rewards.
  4. Marauder encampments are garrisoned by countless warriors, so their attack will not decrease during the course of the battle.
  5. Marauder encampments must be destroyed

Marauder encampments are classified as Level 6 Fort Trophy. So they give you more rewards

  • Leaders should designate some of the players to be the rally captains. They are the ones who have highest Castles so that more players joining into that rallies, meaning more players can gain points.
  • Focus Barbarian farming Commanders like Lohar, Boudica, Minamoto, Cao Cao, Belisarius etc to finish off the Marauder Encampments faster.
