Leveling your Citadel from 1 to 15

0 722

Welcome to the Elite! Getting a strong start in Iron Throne is very important and you can do so by building your castle to greatness. The best way to do this by following the in-game quests that are given to you. However, here we will talk about leveling from 1 to 15.

Levels one through fifteen will help you to be able to get a strong start to your foundation. Not only does it provide great rewards but it opens up Team Deathmatch, Town Mode, Dimensional Battle, and Battle Royale. These are very unique features to this game where you are able to continue to earn even more rewards to help you in your progress.

Getting Started

As you start out, you can choose whether or not to buy the lightning fast packs. These packs include helpful Gold, Resources, and Speed Ups. If you do decide to get a quicker start, check out our Budget Guide to help you pick the best purchases. However, they are not required, and as you will see, you will gain some of these items along your journey.

The easier way to level is by following the quests. The quests will tell you where to go next and what you need to build next. In between building, you will receive quests to kill monsters, storm Chaotic Strongholds, complete Dimensional Battle episodes, and more. Doing these quests will also continue supplying you with the resources needed to level.

It is important to note that as you level, you will receive Hero XP and Lord Skill points. Make sure you are using these appropriately to strengthen your hero and skill your Lord. As you build, our recommendation is to skill your Lord for Construction and Research, and to wait to start training troops until you are a little further along on your build. In addition, make sure you remain shielded so your neighbor doesn’t decide to help themselves to your resources. In addition, be sure to join an Alliance for the rewards available.

Getting Started Checklist:
  • Decide on Gear and Packs
  • Join an Alliance
  • Skill your Lord
  • Appoint your Heroes
  • Level and gear your Heroes
  • Level your VIP
  • Get to Building
