Clash of Kings: Newly Presented Knight System – Unit Levels

As you progress through the clash of kings game and encounter more powerful kingdoms, you might notice that your forces start to have a harder time toppling formidable opponents. When this happens, it usually means that the opposing kingdom either has a larger force or they have more upgraded troops. Luckily, you can do the same with your troops! Let’s take a look at how to do it.

 

How to Increase Your Army in Clash of Kings

Having a sizable army is essential since it increases your chance to overwhelm a castle you plan to siege. Your Marching Troop’s power is determined by the number of units you can send out.

If the opponent’s defenses are higher than your Marching Troops’ overall power, you are more likely to lose. That said, you can increase your Marching Troop capacity when you buy and upgrade your Drill Grounds.

When you first build your Drill Grounds, you can have a total of 3,000 units that can march to an enemy castle or Resource plot. The base Attack Power of a Marching Troop is 4, and depending on what units you’ve sent out, their power will change.

However, you can increase the power of the Drilling Grounds by upgrading the building. In turn, this will increase the number of units you can send out. It is up to you when to upgrade the Drilling Grounds but usually, it is best to do so when you plan on invading a kingdom.

 

Clash of Kings: How to Upgrade Your Troops

Aside from upgrading your Drill Grounds, you should also allot resources to upgrade Troop buildings such as the Barracks, Range, Stables, and Siege Factory. Doing so will give you access to more powerful versions of the units you usually train.
