Soldiers (better known ingame as Units) are commandable troops that are used for military strategies and maneuvers. They can attack enemies, defend your castles, and support allies. Units are acquired from Barracks, the Mission post, quests, events, Master Blacksmith, daily bonuses and sale offers.

Melee Units[]

Melee Units are typically equipped with spears, maces, axes, hammers, shields and swords. They have more attack power than their ranged equivalents. Generally, all melee units have better melee defense than ranged defense.

Melee Attackers have more melee attack power than melee/ranged defense. They excel against Ranged Defenders.

Melee Defenders have more melee defense than ranged defense, and even less melee attack power. They excel against Melee Attackers.

Ranged Units[]

Ranged Units are typically equipped with longbows, crossbows, and even throwing weapons. They have less attack power than their melee equivalents. Generally, all ranged units have better ranged defense than melee defense.

Ranged Attackers have more ranged attack power than melee/ranged defense. They excel against Melee Defenders.

Ranged Defenders have more ranged defense than melee defense, and even less ranged attack power. They excel against Ranged Attackers.

Level 1 Barracks

Recruitment, Researching, and Healing[]

Soldiers can be recruited at the barracks. A player must have sufficient gold coins to recruit units at the barracks. They are used in both defense and offense. A wide variety of soldiers are available to be recruited. Some cannot be recruited unless a specific event is taking place, such as the Travelling Knights which require a traveling knights camp outside your castle to be acquired. Most soldiers consume food regularly so the player must also ensure they have enough food production or food in store to satisfy their food consumption. These troops can be healed if you have a hospital. Soldiers from the Barracks and some special/event soldiers can be healed with coins. The exception to this are most special/event troops, which have to be healed with rubies.

As you level up, you can research troops and make them even more powerful by making them become veteran units. This is available at the Research Tower. However they cause more gold to recruit, and some consume more food.

If a troop you are looking for isn't in the following list, it may be in the Special list. A "-" denotes an unknown stat for the respective unit.

Knowing Offensive and Defensive Troops[]

If you can't tell the difference between a ranged attacker and a melee attacker, you can tell usually by the defence they have. If it's a ranged attacker, the ranged defense of the troop will be higher than melee defence. If it's a melee attacker, vice versa. Special troops that are used for defense will have an extremely high defense for either melee or ranged. Versatile troops like the Renegade Norseman Warrior have 103 attack power and 129 melee defence power, making them useful to attack and defend.

List of Special/Event Soldiers[]

Some of these troops are only available for a limited time during gameplay, for example, the Shadow Mercenaries can only be recruited when there is a shadow mercenary camp just outside your castle. However, the Kingsguard soldiers, as well as the horrors and travelling troops can appear in the Mission Post area as well. Others can be bought with the currency of the event, for example, nomad event troops can be bought by nomad tablets, samurai event troops can be bought with samurai tokens, special and horror soldiers can be bought via Master Blacksmith. Some of these soldiers has a limit to bought until event resets. Most of these cost rubies to heal, with the exception of a few that cost coins. Sometimes, you can get them from daily login bonus randomly.
