General Alandra Aurelius welcomes you to Estara!


You’ve traveled extensively in search of a welcoming land, crossed hostile territories, climbed the iced mountains of the North and walked along wooded treacherous trails. You've finally arrived in the plain of Estara where General Alandra Aurelius is waiting for you. Here, behind the forest and not far from the banks of the river, your wandering ends. The Ancient Sulric decided, in fact, to stand by your side against our common foe The Ruin.

It is now time to start building your Village. You’re not alone in Estara and the risk of being attacked is very high. Luckily General Alandra is providing you some essential practical advice. Pay attention, you will need this advice to progress quickly and to defend yourself from the attacks of ruthless marauders.

The Stronghold, is the heart of your village. Commander, you must upgrade your Stronghold quickly to prevent your resources from being plundered. Upgrading your Stronghold will unlock new buildings, troops, and let you master new skills shared with you by the Ancients.

Upgrades come at a cost. For this reason, you'll need Gold Smelters and a place to store all of your harvested gold from raids and your smelter. Gold is stored in your Gold Storage. Be sure to upgrade your Gold Storage and Gold Smelter quickly as you will not want to waste any gold that you cannot store.


Your village will also need protection, there are several important buildings involved in the defense of your Stronghold. Deploy them strategically, considering the radius of each. Make sure that the enemy does not reach the Stronghold, this is the main target of any attack. Protect the Stronghold at any cost… for once it falls, the battle is lost. At a minimum, you'll want a Watch Tower that shoots arrows very quickly and inflicts significant damage to the target, a Spell Tower to use the powers of your favorite Ancient, and a Catapult which has a large radius and inflicts additional splash damage. Make sure that the Village is well protected and surrounded by massive walls. And remember, the more you upgrade the level of the walls, the more resistant to attacks you will be!

Keep in mind that every village needs a large and strong army. You'll need a Troop Portal and Battlestones to send your soldiers onto the battlefield. Upgrade your troop portal to deploy more squads of troops. And be sure to defend each Portal well, when one of them is destroyed the attacker earns Mana that he can use to launch Ancient spells against your village.
Note that you are provided with a limited amount of free Battlestones to get started with, however, they will expire once you upgrade your Stronghold to level 6.

Join a Kingdom, go on a Campaign to the North to track Foreveil, and unlock Ancients who will help you in your quests against The Ruin.

Commander, we wish you fame, honor and glory!
