Iron Throne is an incredibly intricate game, and understandably, players have many questions. Below we will address some of your questions in a wide range of topics.
We’ve included topics ranging from beginner to advanced, but mainly will focus on beginner questions.
What is the maximum Castle Level?
The current maximum Citadel Level is 42.
What is the maximum Troop Tier Level?
The current maximum is Strategic T7.
Do multiple boosts stack?
Yes, boosts stack with each additional building. Starting at level 25 silver mines give additional attack, barracks give defense and hospitals give HP.
What outlying buildings should I build?
Many players build 10 hospitals, 10 barracks, 10 silver mines and then fill in the rest with the RSS buildings they prefer. Wood and stone are always needed. Food is fairly easy to obtain so it’s not too common to run out.
What do Orbs do and how do I get them?
Orbs allow you to level up your boost level on each building. They are obtained through hitting Ancient People’s Trial Steeples or packs. If you have a limited amount of Orbs or RSS, choose which buildings you want to use them on wisely. When you click on a building, and then click “Upgrade”, it will show an option in the second tab to enhance.

What is the Obelisk’s Blessing?
The Obelisk’s Blessing gives passive stats to your account. The beginning boosts are geared towards events, but after you pass Level 100 they start to have boosts for general battle mechanics.
What research should I focus on?
This depends on what you want to do. In the beginning, Troop training is a must, but not available until C25. Each research node has benefits for your build. The most popular are battle, troop training, and crafting (for enhancements), but be sure not to overlook the other nodes. For example, the city has combat debuffs.
Once you have progressed beyond the beginner stage, Hero Training is a much for your second and third Deputy/Guard, as is Battle Training.
Does dragon research apply to base stats?
No, the dragon research only applies when you send your dragon in an offensive march.
How do I get more gold?
Events! There are events every hour and they rotate. Hit Tier 3 for each event and you can accumulate quite a bit of gold quickly. You can also get Gold from gifts and packs.
How do I change my castle skin and when?
Upon hitting C25 you can change your castle skin. From worldview, tap your castle. You will see an option for castle outer skin. Changing your skin requires gold.
Why should I do Town Mode?
Town Mode has two main benefits. First, you can set daily boosts there to facilitate your goal for the day. If it’s a monster day you can set hero attack or Monster March speed boosts, for example. Secondly, the quests within Town Mode give many items for building and maintaining your account. For a list of maximum daily boosts, and items given in quests, click here.
How do I get more RSS quickly?
There are many ways to accumulate RSS. Here are several;
- Hourly events
- Town Mode
- Chaotic and Defiled Strongholds
- Raiding another base with RSS
- Random Card
Can I succeed F2P?
Yes, you can! It will require grinding and diligence but it can be done. For community tips and tricks for succeeding F2P click here.
What’s the importance of VIP?
Each level of VIP adds boosts to your account. One of the most popular (and savings in the end) is VIP 15. VIP 15 makes hero skill resets free and will free up loyalty and make your life much easier. Starting at VIP 26 boosts for deployable troop size and rally troop deployment size (VIP28) come into play. The maximum current VIP level is 50.
What crafting percentage should I craft on?
In a perfect world, the answer is 100%. However, that’s expensive and will slow your gear accumulation quite a bit. Many players have had little luck at 80% and instead focus their crafting percentage at 30-60%. Why? Several reasons; first you can deconstruct gold uncommon pieces to give more chances to get gold gear (or multiple pieces of gold gear). Secondly, it just seems to work better and gives a higher rate of return.
How do I craft Raid gear and other accessories that aren’t in the Set Equipment view?
Simply hit the “Craft Equipment” option and find the gear piece you want to craft there.
Why can’t I enhance my gear when I have two items of the same gear?
There are three possible answers to this:
- The second piece is being used on another hero.
- Your crafting research is too low.
- You need two to enhance because you’ve hit enhancement Level 10.

What Runes are best?
Runes are very specific and can be enhanced for higher buffs. Pair your runes with the hero that associates with the trait you are trying to enhance. For example, if your main attack hero is archer based, pair it with an archer attack rune. If you need more monster hitting power, add hero attack runes.
What’s the highest level of Rune enhancement?
The highest level is 15, and additional buffs are given at enhancement levels 5, 10, and 15.
Do Troop Stronghold Attack and Stronghold March Speed work on other players Castles?
No, these are focused on chaotic and defiled strongholds.
How does fusing Runes work?
When runes are fused the result is a new random rune (or two).
How do I Kill a Level 40 and above Monster?
CP is not the end-all here. For example, your alliance mate may have less CP than you but can kill what you cannot. Why is this? In many cases, it comes down to hero attack. Enhancing your gear is a fantastic way to kill higher level monsters. Here are a few ways to maximize your monster-killing:
- Enhance Attack Gear.
- Enhanced Guardian Works well for Monster Hunting
- Don’t Be Afraid to Mix and Match Gear for the Best Result.
- Spin your Town Mode Boosts to Hero Attack.
- Buy a 35% boost from the VIP shop.
- Hero Attack Runes.
- Skill your Lord for Monster Hunting
Do Monsters give different Materials?
Yes, the Monsters each give different rewards for killing them. The most common reason to hit Monsters if for the Equipment Chests. If you press on a monster it will show you the potential kill rewards for each one. You can also choose to focus on one Monster type if you are working on grinding a specific set of Equipment.
How should I skill my Lord?
You should use several presets to skill your Lord, each preset used for a specific purpose. For example, use a preset for economy, monster, offense, and defense. Customize these to your liking! Keep in mind that the further down the tree you go, the higher the stats. For example, Infantry Attack early in the tree is not equal to Infantry Attack later down the line so account for this.
Does Hero Attack/Defense/HP help in PvP?
No, these skills are for attacking Monsters.
How do Pets work?
Pets function in several ways. Before a pet can be helpful it must be assigned to a Hero. There is a slot in which to assign the Pet. Pets have stats for Economics and Battle. Up to two pets can be assigned to each Hero.
What Hero is best?
This question is asked frequently, at the beginning of the game all the Heroes were equal. That’s not the case anymore as some Heroes have higher stats focusing on different buffs. Some are free, some can be earned from Events and some are purchased through packs. Check out the charts in The Heroes to decide which Hero is best for you.
What troops should I train?
This is a loaded question, with many different answers. You need to look at both sides, offense and defense. Higher tier troops are a must (Tier 6 at a minimum, T7 is best). These are your attacking troops, both offensively and defensively.
Lower tier troops are your defensive troops. A large amount of Tier 4 (although many traps are running T5/T6 meat) are essential to combat an attack defensively.
A well-built account will have a large amount of both lower-tier and high tier troops (along with decent gear).
What gear is best for my Guard Captain/Deputies?
Contrary to its name, the best gear to defend in is not Guardian. There are many different options for defensive gear, but as of today (9/2020) Crimson Steel leads the packs, followed by Dark Lord. Although Crimson Steel is useful in Defense, many players are opting for adding Level 60 Weapons on their Guard Captains and doing a one type offset defense.
How do I get a bigger march size?
- Upgrading Command Center
- Upgrading Hall of War (rally size)
- Lord Skills
- March Size Boost
- Battle Research
How do I win a battle?
You must lose less power than your opponent.

Does Dimensional/Chaotic Gear work in ADM?
No, it works within the dimensional battle space for those battles and the arena.
What is the best strategy to win the Alliance Death Match?
There are many different strategies to win ADM. Here are a few tips;
- Get as many points as you can early hitting monsters (try to at least hit 300k)
- Stay fluid especially as a smaller player.
- Leave the last HP bar on players for your larger accounts to hit in order to receive the victory boost. They can then more easily target larger accounts.
- Wear raid boss gear on one hero to help slay the monster quickly and obtain the boost.
- Work as a team, and follow your leader’s directions.
- If you’re soloing someone and they don’t burn. Stop!
Should I do Golden Moon daily?
Yes! Try to always have a sanctuary occupied in Golden Moon. It gives chests with valuable rewards. You do not have to stay in the Golden Moon and stare at it. Feel free to go back to your Castle view and go about your day.
