View Full Version : Frequently Asked Questions For Beginners

04-03-2013, 10:56 AM
Hello! First and foremost, welcome to the magical world of Dawn Of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars!! As I'm sure you are all aware by now, questions abound ingame. My goal for this thread is to attempt to relieve some of the stress on the Mods and Devs by answering quite a few of these questions that get asked regularly in a simple, easy-to-read format. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS! It will not be done with this one post. I will have to edit it regularly. So keep checking back to see if your question has been answered!


1) How do I get more crowns?! I'm almost out!! HELP!!
In order to get more crowns, you may do any of the following: Questing, PVP, Sieging NPC towns, referring a new player (they need to indicate that you referred them in the referral box), or purchase them directly via your Get Crowns tab.

2) Do I need to buy crowns to do well in this game?
No. The game is not a pay-to-win style of game. You may earn crowns or buy them. It is up to you. Hard work is rewarded in this game.

3) I keep getting attacked nonstop!! Can I stop this?!
Yes. Purchasing Attack Protection in the Market will keep you from being attacked for however long you have protection for.

4) Does my Attack Protection time run while I'm offline?
No. It stops whenever you log out or otherwise disconnect from the server.

5) When I log out, will my workers keep mining/collecting resources?
Yes. They will continue to work while you are offline.

6) When I log out, can I be attacked?
No. This is to keep you from having to constantly pay out every 30 minutes. When you are attacked, there is a 30 minute attack protection that is given to you to keep people from "spamming" you with attacks to get easy gold from payouts.

7) Can I trade/sell resources to other players?
Yes. Add them to your friends list and you can send them resources and vice-versa. Remember to be cautious when dealing with people you do not know personally.

8) How does coop work?
Coop basically has a few stipulations whether you are sieging or doing a coop mission together. You must have a very close army strength to your partner. If you have 1000 and your partner has 1500, that wont work. Get as close as possible within 50 or so strength value points. You must also be geographically very close to each other on the world map. If your army is down in dragon land and your partner is up in the dwarven marshes, obviously you cannot do anything together. It's a very short distance to be able to work together in coop. Lastly, make sure to invite your partner by name, obviously. If not, you may end up with someone you werent planning on working with.

9) I have crowns. What should I use them on?
While everyone has a different play style, I can tell you what I have used my crowns on so far. First, I build both sets of stone walls. They have way more health than any other type of wall. This allows for a safer siege of your city, by making it much harder for your opponent to loot your city. Second, I upgraded all my towers to Large Towers, giving my siege weapons more range as well as my archers. Third, I did as much research on technologies and upgrades throughout my city as possible. Fourth, I picked up a few dragons and a few elite heroes. Fifth, I picked up dwarven riflemen and dwarven miners. Sixth, if I'm answering a lot of questions or if I'm not in the mood for PVP, I buy attack protection.

Some things I personally choose to never spend crowns on are resources. I can adjust my city to bring in whatever resources I need, or I can just take an army to an NPC town and pick them up. Much cheaper this way.

10) Garrison? What on earth would I need that for?
To Quote Brian Shingles The Garrison option allows you to mark which units you want to keep in your home city.
For example - you might have several Archers in your city, some positioned for defense and others you want to send to an army.
If you mark the defending Archers as part of the Garrison, when you go to transfer the units to the army you will see which units not to move (they will have a little shield symbol on their icon).


Sorry for lack of updates guys. Work has been hell. I'll update when i can. If you have any questions you would like to see answered in here, please pm them to me. Please, if you see a question showing up in help chat a lot, post it on here so it can be added to the list. I'm not the only one who can modify this. Thanks and good hunting guys!

hello, how do the coop exactly work? So me and a friend of mine have just started playing this game like yesterday. I have an elf and got a human cities now. I was doing a quest on my own and realized that it could be done in a "coop" mode, so I tried to put his name to invite for the quest. But it said smth like "his army is not appropriate" (not really that but smth similar to that). So my wish is that could you guys pls put a detailed info on coop system and how it works (intra-races or inter-races etc.)

That happens a lot. Before you try CO-OP be sure to have similar strength armies and to be close. Also, try relogging when you match your armies in strength.

My friend and I managed to get into CO-OP quest after we tried to CO-OP siege NPC town, so maybe try that also.

04-06-2013, 05:55 PM
first of all, thanks for the reply. yea the one we tried was also a NPC town co-op siege. But we couldnt do it. I mean I still have questions, like he is human and his city is like really far from mine, so is it possible to just hop into a coop action that is near my city (an elf city). We thought it wouldnt work that way so I made him march his troop all way to next to my city. But then the coop system didnt work.. which was annoying.

You need to have your armies near each other on map. Also, armies need to have similar strength :)

Hooterbabby: firstly, i wont make an excuse for it not being updated. I have however worked 12 hours a day for the last 2 weeks straight. Everyday except sunday. I have been busy. Instead of trolling, why not contribute. Secondly, it is a goal, not a flat statement of my capabilities.

To everyone else, thanks for posting, i will update this as soon as i am off work.

A lot of players have been asking in help why they cant do co-op with their friends. I would update this post to say that whoever is being invited for co-op will require their attack protection to be cancelled.

The cage for dragons and minotaurs etc was destroyed by another players wizard. Now when I go to repair it, it is demanding I pay another 40 crowns for the repairs.

How many other buildings are affected like this? And can they still produce dragons etc when destroyed.

Very disappointed. I was enjoying the game up until this point.
