My Lords and Ladies,
The dawn of League Fortresses is upon us!
The quest to rid Stormfall of the darkness is not one that can be achieved alone…
For your League to truly stand a chance of success, it must have one location from which to rule. To that end, Lord Oberon has commissioned his finest architects to draft construction plans for the League Fortress!
League Fortresses are special buildings that serve to unify a League’s forces and strengthen the armies of its Members. You can protect and upgrade your own League Fortress, or engage with rival Fortresses by attacking and downgrading them, greatly affecting their Levels and bonuses.
Having a central Fortress in which to convene allows your League to develop Knowledge, which provides formidable bonuses to all Members.
League Fortresses have 21 levels (0-20). When first constructed, League Fortresses will be at Level 3, but can be downgraded to zero by rival Leagues. The higher the Level of your League Fortress, the greater the bonuses it is able to provide to your League Members.
Each upgrade Level grants you additional Influence Points and increases the bonuses you are able to receive from your Knowledge.
Glory Points are required to Upgrade League Fortresses. They can be earned by either participating in certain Tournaments, or by purchasing them from the “Info” tab of your League Fortress.
When you construct your League Fortress, you also gain access to League Knowledge. The “Knowledge” section of your League Fortress contains many Fields of Knowledge, which are special areas of discovery that provide statistical bonuses to the armies of ALL Members of that League.
Knowledge is not affected by attacks, and cannot be downgraded. Once upgraded to a certain Level, it will never drop below that Level.
To upgrade Fields of Knowledge, you must use Tomes.
Tomes are a special League-only Resource that can be earned by participating in League Quests and Tournaments, or by purchasing them for Sapphires when upgrading your Fields of Knowledge.
Each League should strive to downgrade other Leagues’ Fortresses. Firstly, downgrading rival Leagues’ Fortresses deprives them of much sought-after bonuses. Secondly, downgrading other Leagues’ Fortresses is a key requirement in a League upgrading their own Fortress.
To downgrade a rival Fortress, your League must perform a successful attack on it.
If another League successfully attacks your Fortress whilst an upgrade is NOT in progress, your Fortress will be downgraded by one Level, and 50% of the Glory Points spent on the most recent upgrade will be returned to your League.
If another League manages to perform a successful attack on your Fortress whilst it is being upgraded, the upgrade will fail, and your Fortress will be downgraded by one Level. Your League will be reimbursed 75% of the Glory Points spent on the attempted upgrade, as well as a further 50% of the Glory Points spent on the most recent successful upgrade.
Important: League Fortresses cannot be downgraded more than ONCE per day.
FORTRESS MANAGEMENT (FOR LEAGUE MARSHALS)
BUILDING YOUR FORTRESS
League Fortresses can only be built on special Fortress Foundations, which can be found on the Map and scattered throughout the lands of Stormfall.
Each League may build only ONE League Fortress.
Only the League Marshal is able to initially construct your League Fortress.
To construct your League Fortress, go to the Map. From there, click on the large, blue icon in the bottom-left to open the "Locate Fortress Foundations" window, then click “Find Fortress Foundations”. The rest is simple: find a Fortress Foundation of your choosing, then click "Place Fortress".
RELOCATING YOUR FORTRESS
League Fortress Gateways are special items that can be used to change a Fortress’ location on the Map. League Fortress Gateways can be acquired from the Black Market, from within the “Special” tab.
Only League Marshals – and those League Members granted permission to do so – can:
- Spend Glory Points to upgrade their League Fortress. Upgrading your League Fortress takes time, but this process can be sped up with the use of Sapphires.
- Use League Fortress Gateways to relocate their League Fortress to a new location of their choosing.
- Use Tomes to Upgrade a League’s Knowledge.
Heed the information contained within in this text, my Lords. If one needs any further clarification or information, peruse the “Guide” section in-game.
Important: Only Leagues that have been around for more than 7 days are able to create a League Fortress.
If you are the Marshal of your League, click on the “Build” button below to construct your League Fortress immediately! It is time to set your League on the path to greatness!
