As a new player in Rise of Kingdoms, one of the first tasks you must complete is to explore the map and clear all of the fog.
It is very important to discover “Tribal Village” and “Mysterious Caves” during the early game because they will give you tons of valuable rewards, including technologies and starting troops. This is also a crucial part when you want to make a jumper account.
Exploring fog is not a difficult task, you just need to be patient and follow a series of tips in this article.
The first thing you need to explore the map effectively is to have “ Scout Camp” at the highest possible level so that you can use 3 scouts at once and explore at a lot faster speed.
Upgrading “ Scout Camp” is very cheap and fast. The missions that require you to upgrade the Scout Camp rewards you even more resources than what you need to spend!
Now, after the new update, the scouting job is even much easier than before!
When sending the scouts to explore the fog, you can select the option: “Hold the position for 5 minutes after exploring”, the explorers will remain still for 5 minutes after discovering the area, this helps to track the exploration progress a lot easier!
Always try to send the scouts in opposite directions to speed up the discovery of routes, and save much more exploration time.
Tips for Exploring Fog
- If you are working on your jumper account, you can start with Japan civilization as it offers a 30% scout march speed buff.
- Join an Alliance as soon as possible and send the scout to the caves standing next to your Alliance members, which are located away from you. Using this trick, your scouts can even travel from your city to the edges of the map, giving you the chance to discover Tribal Villages and Mysterious Caves.
“Tribal Village” are the small villages showing the map as we progress the exploration.
Whenever there is a new village getting explored, players receive a message to the in-game mailbox. You can simply tap on the mail to locate the village automatically and get the rewards!
Some of the best rewards you can get from these villages are Level 1 troops, initial Academy Techs, Speed-ups, and “Kingdom Map“.
The Kingdom Map allows us to instantly uncover the fog of a random area on the map. If all of the fogs on the map are already cleared, you can exchange the Kingdom Maps for Speedups.
They are all super valuable rewards for new players so it’s a must to discover all the “Tribal Villages” that are on the map as quickly as possible.
Unlike “Tribal Village“, the Mysterious Caves must be investigated in by the scouts to collect the rewards.
Once you discovered a mysterious cave, you will get a message in the mailbox. Navigate to the cave, send a scout to investigate it, and take the rewards.
It takes only 10 seconds to investigate, but what matters is the time your scout needs to travel from your city to the target.
The rewards of “Mysterious Caves” are chests that vary in 3 quality types (Low, Medium and High). The higher the quality the chest is, the better rewards it offers: VIP Points, Gems, Action Points, Speed-ups, Resources, and a lot of other rewards!
When the explorer finds “Mysterious Caves”, you can send it inside and it does not lose the discovery route that we have previously assigned. Therefore, it’s one of the ways to take advantage of the fog exploration so you don’t have to send it back to the same location again later.
How to find Caves and Villages?
If you forget to collect the rewards from the caves and villages right away when exploring fogs, or if your kingdom is old and doesn’t have any fog, you can easily find them on the map by zoom out and select the Explore filter located at the top left of the screen:
The yellow ones are the villages/caves that haven’t been collected yet.
Scouts cannot be attacked or targeted by any player like the normal troops; they are invulnerable.
Feel free to fully discover the map, clear the fog and earn numerous rewards.
This is one of the most important step in Rise of Kingdoms and gives you a lot of advantage during the early game if done quickly.
