Mercenary Camp

Image of mercenary camp. Mercenaries are recruited here.

General Information Edit

Players can hire elite Mercenaries either at the Mercenary Camp using Trade Goods, or from Campfires revealed when clearing Forests.

Mercenary troops can be used once in an attack. Once used they will not return from battle. Mercenary troops are deployed by clicking on the blue banner and then on the map. In contrast to regular troops which can be deployed one by one, all recruited Mercenary units are deployed at once.

Mercenaries cannot be hired while the Mercenary Camp is being upgraded.

Troops available Edit

There are 5 types of Mercenary troops that are available:

As the Mercenary Camp is upgraded, higher levels of troops become available for recruitment, replacing lower levels.
