Top 100 Best Rise of Kingdoms Tips for Beginners

  1. Don’t attack cities at the beginning of the game. You will always lose more than what you gain from the battles.
  2. Don’t spend money until you fully understand the game. Learn how to create a jumper account and jump to a new kingdom. A fully-geared jumper account is worth $200 in-game bundles.
  3. Don’t star up your legendary commanders beyond Level 10 until you have maxed out their first skill. Take advantage of the Star Jump Trick.
  4. Always spend your gems on upgrading your VIP Status. Rush your VIP to Level 6 early in the game and continue to work towards maxing it out to get even more bonuses from the daily chest.
  5. Pick a civilization that will match your preferred gameplay strategy, for instance Germany is great at combat and France is good at gathering resources.
  6. Speed level your City Hall to 22 in order to dispatch up to 5 armies.
  7. Your ultimate goal as a F2P player is to rush for Tier 4 troops, that’s when you will be on an even platform with the majority of the players.

  9. Before using any of your speedups, make sure you max out all of your help first from alliance members. This ensures you are using your items more frugal and saving them for critical buildings.
  10. All players start on Zone 1 which is the outer area of the map. Work with your alliance to gain control of the passes to move closer to the center where the Lost Temple is located.
  11. Once your alliance gains the control of Lost Temple, the next objective is to compete for control on The Lost Kingdom map next to your kingdom with 7 other kingdoms.
  12. Take advantage of the alliance titles for additional bonuses.
  13. A kingdom on average usually is between 200 to 400 real players (not counting farming accounts at all).
  14. Don’t start an alliance if you are new, it’s a lot of work and eat up your time easily. It’s like running a business.
  15. Being a Free-to-Play player like me is fun, but you won’t dominate in the battle easily. Although, you will do your part in alliance wars.
  16. Set up a mini farming account, one is good, two even better. Rise of Kingdoms is all about war and to advance quickly, you need tons of resources. Level 12 farming accounts is good but Level 17 farming accounts are just amazing.
  17. Lohar’s Trial is the best event for farming accounts, hands-down.
  18. Alliance Center is the second most important structure in the game after your City Hall. Level it up so you can get more help to speed upgrade more buildings.
  19. Always keep researching technology upgrades as they are one of the most expensive and time-consuming in the game.
  20. The peacekeeping commanders are worth investing in and you will need them for chain-farming barbarians effectively in Rise of Kingdoms. Use infantry as they are slow and tanky.
  21. You always will want to star up your gathering commanders to Star Rank 2 and max out their second skill. Don’t level any further than it as they don’t provide that much of value.
  22. Keep Siege Tier 1 units as they are excellent for farming resources. Plus, they heal super fast if they get injured on the battlefield while farming, You can easily heal 1,000,000 Siege T1 units just in 3 seconds.
  23. Farming in friendly alliance territory increases the farming speed by 25%. Your alliance also gets 1% on top of gathered resources that can be used to advance alliance technology, build flags and even a new fortress.
  24. In the beginning of the game, focus on gathering resources as they are the easiest and most effective method to get resources for upgrading your buildings, training troops and researching technologies.
  25. You can get Book of Covenant by farming barbarians which is needed to upgrade your Castle to Level 25.
  26. Runes need to be activated before you can upgrade them.
  27. The largest Starlight gives more experience, medium Starlight gives more luck and increases your chance of getting double the amount of experience.
  28. Cavalry commanders focuses on speed and counters archers.
  29. Infantry commanders focuses on defense and counter cavalry.

  32. Spend your alliance credits on teleporters as they are the best bang of your bucks and come with a lot of utilities.
  33. Tomoe Gozen, El Cid and Minamoto No Yoshitsune aren’t the best commanders in the game.
  34. Check the Shop every time Mysterious Merchant pops up in your city and buy everything that costs resources.
  35. Did you know that City Level 22 and Tier 4 is just only 1/4 way of the entire game? To obtain Tier 5 troops, you will have to have at least 39 million power.
  36. Always complete every Expedition mission with 3 stars so you can get free coins to spend on Aethelflaed and other commanders in the Expedition Store.
