You enter your Castle. You are faced with many buildings, each with their own function. Which ones are important? How do you know what you need to build up and what each building does? Here, the Iron Throne Elite will take you on a walk through your Castle and the functions of the buildings you will be using.
Iron Throne Buildings
Your Citadel in Iron Throne now maxes out at level 42. With new levels come new benefits and new research! In order to complete new building levels, you will continue to need old RSS and special items such as Marble. However, you will also now need Divine Stones. These stones can be obtained in events, packs, and the Super Pass Shop.
For most players, your first goal is going to be to unlock the new research. In order to unlock the new Dragon Research you must have Academy level 41, other research is unlocked or not able to be unlocked at this point in time. We have tracked the bare minimum cost of Divine Stones in order to be able to upgrade to Academy level 41.
|Divine Stone Requirements|
|Total to Unlock Academy 41||180|
Researches Associated with new Academy Levels
While we mention the new Dragon Research be aware that we will likely soon see building levels increase again. At the same time as this release, we saw the new Hero Training III Research added. This Research does not unlock until Academy Level 45. Due to the fact that this level of buildings has not been released yet, we know that it is something we can expect in the near future.
|Research Category||Unlock Condition|
|Production Ⅱ||Reach Academy Level 29|
|Dragon Ⅱ||Reach Academy Level 41|
|Hero Training Ⅲ||Reach Academy Level 45|
Updates to Buildings
Since this article has been written, we have seen many updates to our buildings. While the basic information remains the same on these buildings and what they do and what stats they provide they now max at level 40 with new levels coming soon. These new levels bring increased stats and capabilities. Make sure that you check them out. Today, I want to mention two features that you need to be aware of that have been introduced since this guide was written.
Feature One: Building Enhancements
This feature allows you to enhance your buildings for additional stats using Orbs and Resources. These orbs can be obtained from the Ancient Trial Steeple and packs. These boosts to your stats are worth it and makes leveling your buildings even more important due to the fact that you can only enhance your buildings as high as your building levels go. For more information about Building Enhancements and the Ancient, Trial Steeple check out this article.
Feature Two: Obelisks Blessings
This is another way to get even more stats. These blessings not only apply to certain game modes but your stats overall. Check them out to see what you can get! To increase these blessings you will need Resources and if you want to go beyond the “free” amount you can increase these blessings in a day you will need gold. However, be careful because the amount of gold that can be used here adds up fast!!!!! Make sure you read more about these blessings here in this article.
The Citadel is the perfect place to start for this article. After all, it is the first building you upgrade when you begin playing, and serves as your base’s foundation. Here, you can see see the production rate for all of your buildings. Upgrading this will allow you to recruit more Heroes and open up different functions around your Castle as you are able to further level up other buildings. You can also appoint Heroes from your Citadel and access the Event Center, where you can earn Rewards by logging in and completing Quests.
These four buildings are what allow you to unlock different tiers of Troops and where you train them. Training Grounds are where Infantry Troops are trained, the Archery Range trains Archers, the Stable trains cavalry, and the Siege Workshop trains Siege Troops. In order to increase the Tier of the Troops you can train, you must increase the level of this building. Often, players find themselves with a stronger Infantry base due to the fact that this building needs to be upgraded in order to upgrade the Archery Range, Stable, and Siege Workshop. Additionally, Infantry troops unlock at lower building levels then Archers, Cavalry, or Siege.

The Rally Point
The Rally Point is not something that needs to be upgraded. The Rally Point is at the center of your Training Buildings. Here you can see your Troop Count, Trap Count, Injured Troops, Deployable Troops, Food Production Rate, and your Upkeep Cost. Basically, anything you need to know about the current Troops you own will be found here.
Barracks are essential for building. They are an outbuilding, and the maximum number that you can build is ten. However, these buildings will help to increase the number of troops you can train at one time and help with training speed. So, the more Barracks you have, the more Troops you can Train in one queue, and the faster you can train them. Barracks also give an additional perk of increasing Defense at level 25 and above.

At higher levels, the hospital provides additional HP perks.

The Merchant is another outbuilding. This building does not get upgraded. By visiting the Merchant, you can buy various items, including Speed Ups, building materials, Hero XP, Lord XP, VIP Points, and more. You can purchase these items utilizing Gold at a discounted rate and with your resources.
The Temple has some nice features as well. The Temple allows you to “wish” for Resources and obtain Resources with these wishes. The level of the building determines the number of wishes that are available to you. In addition, this building has a Revive Function. This affects troops from Tier 1 to Tier 5. When they die in battle, you can Revive them using Revival Herbs. However, be cautious when reviving, as you want to be sure you revive your highest Tier first since they are the most expensive to revive. You have 7 days from the time the Troops are killed to Revive them, but be aware that the Revival Herb amount does not recharge at a quick pace.
