A new series of tournaments has been announced by Kabam: The Masters Season 1. The series of events spans the entire remainder of the month of February, consisting of both individual and alliance based tournaments, in which special items to track progress can be won. Also, prizes will consist of special items that can be traded in in the Sage Tower for various prizes, giving the players freedom to spend their earnings on whatever prize they need most! Considering the name, there will likely be more Master Seasons in the future. In this article I will provide all known information about the tournament series 1 as it plays out.
Today a new campaign map was released, continuing the Lake-town themed updates lately: Lake-town: Along the Shore. It is a rather short map, consisting of only 2 parts, comprising 10 maps total. Rewards for the map parts are pretty nice, with a lot of resources to be farmed from the two boss levels. Of course, the might of the Goblins also increases exponentially, so the boss levels stick out at 7.2m and 14.4m might (!). Numbers we are used to see from temporary maps, but this one seems permanent.
The two map parts spawn a 210 and 250 Alliance Boss, which drops Lake-Town Advanced chests, containing the following items:
Besides the Bosses, a number of levels also offer possible drops for Bard’s gear. Bard’s gear is a new set of gear aimed at Bard, the new Hero in Lake-town. The gear can be farmed/unlocked sequentially by going through the new campaign, killing the Alliance Bosses, and trading in Sage Tower. For many of the drops in campaign, you need to use Bard to attack and equip him with his gear you already have unlocked. A post about how to acquire the full set can be found HERE.
The info for this map has been added to the Campaign map which you can find HERE.
As soon as you open your city, it’s there: The City Guardian. A large statue in the middle of your city, seemingly more decorative than functional. But the City Guardian actually functions as a protector of your City, providing very useful buffs that will certainly help even the most experienced players. In this article, I delve a little deeper into the Guardian and give an overview of how it functions.
One of the basics aspects of the game Kingdoms of Middle Earth is acquiring and building up your cities. When starting the game, you have one city, but this can be expanded to 4 cities, and a special 5th Lake-Town city. Cities can contain a number of different buildings, each with their own function and dependencies.
In this article, I will summarize what each building does. Two types of buildings are mentioned: The City buildings contained within your City Walls, and the Field, or resource buildings, which are constructed on field plots. Buildings from the 5th Lake-Town city will come in a separate article.
With the new update to the game, 4th cities can be runecrafted, and runecrafting up to level *11 is finally possible, although a pain in the ass. Just think about the number of Hobbit Runecrafters you need to to be able to train all Tier 4 units and then think about how available these things are to get your hands on. But I think it is a great time to go over the topic of forging runes, the runes you need to get to level *10 in the first place.
So where do you get these runes? What do you use them for, and how? Which trade from the Sage tower is most profitable? And how many do you need to upgrade your buildings. In this post, I will try to combine all available information on the topic.
Like mentioned in my post on update 9.1.0, it brought to the game the exciting new feature of Alliance Boss Battles.
At the time of writing that piece, the feature had not been fully implemented yet, but it has in the mean time, and it is such an addition it merits its own article. So here, I will lay out all the necessary information you need about this feature.
One of the most interesting updates to Kingdoms of Middle Earth recently has been the addition of Hero Equipment; Pieces of gear that heroes can equip that give them certain bonuses. But where do you find all the information about the gear? Where do you equip them on your heroes? Where can you see all the items’ bonuses and where are the icons explained? And where exactly do you find these items in the game to begin with?
This article will provide answers to all this and more, giving you a complete overview on one of the better additions to this game in months.
