An update has arrived, and whoooo it is a hefty one. At times when we see these updates, they can feel a bit overwhelming, and reading the forum just feels like a chore in and of itself. Because of the recent changes, we want to go ahead and break down what they mean for you on a level that makes it a bit more digestible.
Today our goal will be to break down what the latest updates mean for your Alliance, for you as a player, and how to utilize these new features. There have been so many updates that we may not hit all of them but we will attempt to hit the most important.
What do the Latest Updates Mean for your Alliance?
There have been multiple updates to alliance features that affect everyone, from new players to old. Some of these features affect joining, and some affect the current state of your alliance.
Joining an Alliance
Some basic changes have been made when it comes to joining an alliance. For new and old players you will now get a list of alliances you can join automatically. This means that you do not need to wait for someone to open the door.
This can be accessed by pushing the Alliance help button on research or building and only works when you are not currently in an alliance.
In addition, there are new pop-ups that you will see when you are joining or not in an alliance. These pop-ups will encourage you to join and show you the benefits of joining.
Good news for new players the reward for joining an alliance for the first time has been improved! Check out what you get now compared to in the past:
|500 Gold||5,000 Gold|
|Premium Teleport x1||Premium Teleport x5|
The time it takes to complete Alliance Research for “Architecture” has been decreased. This is specific to that research, however, what it does is allow your alliance to receive Alliance Territory benefits more quickly than you could in the past.
|Existing Research Time||Updated Research Time|
|24 Hours||1 Hour|
|72 Hours||24 Hours|
|216 Hours||100 Hours|
|648 Hours||400 Hours|
|1,296 Hours||1,000 Hours|
You can now construct your Alliance Castle and Alliance farm even more quickly. For those who are in kingdoms where you struggle with your Castle being destroyed this may be a help. However, this also reduces the durability.
But by completing Iron Enhancement Research it can be upgraded so that it has the same durability as it did before this update.
Alliance Elders in the past have been determined by total contribution to the alliance now R4 and R5 have the ability to appoint elders. However, keep in mind that the R5 can turn off the ability of the R4 team to appoint elders.
Alliance Lucky Chests
These chests are ones we got in the past. However, the biggest change is that now you can see who sent it and it’s in a separate tab.

What do the Latest Updates mean for you as a Player?
There have been a lot of changes to Alliance functions however, there have also been a lot of changes that affect you as an individual. Covering those is just as important.
Raise the Roof for New Emojis
We have new emojis!! New emojis in Iron Throne is always exciting however, these emojis are extra special. Our new emojis are animated! This doubles the fun in Alliance Chat, also be sure to check out your Daily Quests there is now a Quest for using an emoji in Alliance Chat.
There have been a few changes to gathering. One of the changes applies only during the Kingdom protection period and for this one gathering at the Alliance Resource Center will give an increase of 1,000% as a Kingdom buff.
The other change to the gathering is that the research for gathering and gathering II buffs have been increased. You can see these changes in the table below.
|Research||Level||Existing Buff Value||Updated Buff Value|
Universal Chat has been added which means that you can now talk to your friends in different Kingdoms. Netmarble does a great job of making sure chats do not get too toxic so this will be interesting to see how it develops. What you need to know about participating is this:
- There are fifty different channels and only so many players can be in a channel at a time.
- You can only chat in Universal Chat if you are Citadel 25 or higher or VIP level 25 or higher.
- Multiple channels cannot be used at the same time.
- Auto translate does not work in Universal Chat and all conversations will need to be translated through the translation function.
Other cool new chat features have also been added including the fact that those with titles now will be seen typing in cool colors.
You can now enhance buildings multiple levels at a time. That means you do not need to sit and click to enhance one level at a time. However, my cautions with this is that enhancing buildings does count towards some solo and inferno events so you may not want to enhance too quickly.
Crafting also has a new bulk function allowing you to craft multiple pieces of equipment at the same time. If you are like me you will continue to do it one at a time but for those of you who want to quickly craft and be done, this is a great option.
One of the things that everyone noticed when we logged in after the update was we all grew overnight! This was due to our gear power. Power from gear only applies when you are wearing it and you can check how much power gear gives here:
We also now have a tab we can access from our Lord management tab. This will show us how much power we are receiving from those features and where we fall when it comes to the average of other players at your Citadel level. This will give you an idea of where improvements are needed.
Auto Hunt Improvements
You can now Auto Hunt specific Monsters. When you select Auto Hunt you will see a new pop up that allows you to set it to hunt for that specific monster type. For those of you who are endeavoring to upgrade certain gear sets this is a great feature as you go hunting.
Changes to Heroes and Research
There have also been some changes to your Research and Heroes:
- The maximum Hero upgrade grade has been expanded to Immortal +7.
- The maximum level for a Hero’s Dimensional Battle/World Skill has been expanded to Level 110.
- New Hero Buffs have been added to Hero Training and Hero Training II.
- Siege Buff has been added.
- To achieve victory in Face-Off, Hero Training Research has become important.
What do the Latest Updates mean for Events?
Some of the changes also apply to events and we will see this more as we are able to engage in those events.
The Battlefield page will now look more like a calendar allowing us to plan even more.
There will be a ton of different things we are able to see from here so make sure you go and explore.
Battle Royal Improvements
They have been making changes to Battle Royale including improvements to the player information screen. However, the changes to Battle Royale are minimal.
For those of you who love Deathmatch and love Ancient magic, we have good news! Ancient magic can now be used within Deathmatch. There are some conditions however including:
– The cooldown for magic works separately in Deathmatch.
– The applied duration of magic is 10% in Deathmatch.
– Upon achieving Stage 6 of Deathmatch, the Ancient Magic cooldown will reset once.
