Best Tips for The Golden Kingdom Rules

Shared by andyreyesvales

  1. Unless there is an arrow tower on any of the levels, keep opening all the paths you can without fighting the Guardian. This will increase your chances of earning benefits before entering a fight.
  2. Once you kill the boss of a particular floor and have no more way to clear even if there are still guardians, it is recommended to go to the next floor. However, you must find the healing hut and heal one of your troops, or you can continue searching for the recruitment hut that will help you recruit a pair to continue fighting.

  3. The number of troops healed from the cabin is half of what you started on that march. So unless you have less than half remaining in a march, do all the fights you need on that floor first and then heal.
  4. Try not to use any relics until at least floor 4 and don’t buy anything on floor 4. Save your coins. Every four floors there is a store and a higher level = more useful things.
  5. On certain floors you will receive additional troops as reinforcements. The abilities of these commanders would be the same as those of the same commanders that YOU have in the game. So choose the commanders you have upgraded and definitely not the ones you don’t have.
  6. Think strategically. Choose the blessings applicable to your majority troop types. A blessing that reduces the enemy’s rear rank marching speed by 50% is also useful. Also the benefit that avoids the front line of the enemy and attacks the backline.
  7. If you think you can’t beat a boss, you can kill him using relics of direct damage or at least weaken him enough to fight him easier.
  8. When healing, try to heal your troops of more damage, since these are the most vulnerable, unless you have your tank units very wounded, but they resist much more.
  9. The wheel is a matter of luck, but with any luck we can get some good benefit, although it will always give us some help.

  10. Line up your troops to counter the enemy type of troops (Cavalry> Archers> Infantry> Cavalry)
  11. Always destroy the Arrow Towers first, no matter what level it is.
  12. You can only carry 9 relics. So make sure that before you get to floors 8, 12, and 16, you have some empty relic spaces, so you can purchase some important relics on these floors that will be useful to you during the remaining floors.

  13. Use the direct damage effects wisely: Against Bosses and Arrow Towers mainly.
  14. Wisely use Siege Relic that deals direct damage. You can kill the Arrow Towers without having to clear the way to them.
  15. Armor Relics that reduces damage taken from a Guardian of your choice can stack up to 80%. Then use it against the final bosses of Level 19 and 20.
  16. There are relics that can resurrect one of your fallen marches, such as altars.
  17. There are relics that can chain the enemy and unlock nearby spaces. It saves you the trouble if you have to fight him.
  18. Use all the relics you can get for free on each floor, such as healing, Forced Movement, Exposing Elite Guardians, etc. every time you get them. It is recommended to use Forced Movement only on elite guards and when you have unlocked most of the way.

Always remember it is an event of great patience especially when it comes to facing Guardians and Bosses, we must be cautious and choose the best of our strategies with the best of our arsenal of commanders, no matter what level of Technology or Skills Development in Commanders we have, we must be smart and decide our first and second line in the best way, of course, our first line must have units and tank commanders, mainly infantry so that our second line can have the best possible damage combo and thus be the unit that inflicts more damage at the same time and less troops loses since our first line will be in charge of holding.

The Golden Kingdom Rules

  1. Requirements: Governors with a City Hall at level 17 or higher can participate.
  2. Event Description: Governors clear a path through the fog, revealing random events as they venture forward. When a tile is cleared of fog, the 4 adjacent tiles (above, below, left, right) become revealable. The fog surrounding a Guardian can not be cleared until the Guardian is defeated. Defeat the floor’s Guardian Chief to open up a portal to the next floor. 1 Golden Chest will be awarded for every 4th floor cleared.
  3. Event Difficulty: The strength of enemy troops in the “Golden Kingdom” event will scale with the participating Governor’s Power to ensure a suitable challenge.
  4. Troop Setup: Governors will use their own troops and commanders in battle, taking up to 5 troops with them. Once troops are set, they (including equipment and talents of Commanders involved) cannot be changed unless restarting the event. Troops recruited from Reinforcement Camps can be used in battle as well.
  5. Troop Strength: At the end of each battle, any surviving troops of either side will remain. Battle results will not influence the participating Governor’s troop strength outside of the event.
  6. Boosts: All buffs from equipment, individual technologies, commander talents, VIP buffs,  civilization bonuses, city buildings and special city themes will take effect in the”Golden Kingdom” event.
