Rise of Empires Ice and Fire Guide, Tips & Tricks⇓
This article covers how to play the Rise of Empires Ice and Fire game, about progression, troops, state, and other things such as buildings, resources, characters, etc. So, let’s get straight to the Rise of Empires Ice and Fire guide and tips!
Switch To An Active State In Rise of Empires⇓
If you have just started playing Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire, the first tip we would recommend is to switch to an active state. When you start the game, it randomly throws you in a state/server – it could be an active state or dead state(with no president and national quest buildings). You can change state for free when the castle level is below 6 and you have not passed 15 days in the game.
How do you check if the state is active or not? Build the class hall in the empire and check whether the national quest is activated or not. If yes, then it means the state has an active president, and he/she has enabled the national quest.
Or go to the map -> tap the scroll/map type icon in the bottom-left corner -> this will open the state map – visit the center of the map; there would be the throne building. Around it, there would be 6-7 buildings with golden symbols. If not, then it means the president has not placed the building, and we can consider it a dead state with the lazy president.
Now, on the same state map -> tap the globe button on the top-right -> this will take you to the universe map, where you can check all the states. Tap on a state where you want to move -> check the throne and buildings around it(with golden symbol) + president status. If everything is OK(President, National Quest buildings), then tap the scroll/map button on the bottom-left side -> choose a location where you want to teleport -> change zones -> tap the OK button -> confirm. It will cost a newbie relocation item and you must be below level 6 and newbie(after 15 days, you can not change the state for free).
Rise of Empires Ice and Fire Guide To Troops⇓
These troops help a lot in gathering RSS from the world map, and in attacking other players and monsters. It’s always a good idea to keep the training centers busy all the time and train the troops. In the Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire game, you can train a variety of powerful troops such as footmen in barracks, archers in the archery range, and cavalries in the stable.
Upgrade the barrack building to get high tier footmen, upgrade the archery range to get high tier archers, and upgrade the stable to get high tier cavalry units. High tier units stats always better than the low-tier units. To train the troops in Rise of Empire game, tap that building(for example – barrack) -> train -> select the unit tier -> train. Just above the train button, you can adjust the number of units that you want to train and it also shows you the resources that you need to train the selected unit.
How to train more troops at a time?
In the beginning, the game only allows you to train a batch of 20 troops at a time. But, as you progress through the game, you will need troops fast and in bulk. So, 20 units batch would not help you. To train more troops at a time in the Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire game, you need to build a military-type building called an encampment. Tap the build option at the bottom-right -> military -> encampment. Upgrade this facility further to train more troops at a time.
How to promote troops? i.e tier 1 to tier 2?
As you know, Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire let you train low-tier troops in the beginning. But as soon as you upgrade the training centers such as barrack, new high tier troops unit will get unlocked. In the later stage, you may want to promote the tier 1 unit to tier 2 unit(or tier 2 -> to higher). To do this, you need to build a military university building in the castle ground.
Tap build button on the bottom-right side -> choose military -> select/drag military university -> confirm. Once done, tap the military university facility -> troops -> select the troops -> tap the upgrade icon -> promote. It will cost you RSS. Before it, you must unlock the corresponding promote technology in the institute. Tap the research icon on the top-left side -> basic combat -> courage approval and all its further techs.
How or why do I heal the troops?
When you send the troops unit on an attack, they may get injured. When the injured troops return, you can heal them. You must build a medical tent in the castle to heal the troops. Tap build option -> military -> medical tent. It will cost RSS.
How to increase the marching cap?
You can not send an unlimited number of marches to attack, gather, hunt the monsters. If you try to do it, the game will show you a message that displays the text message; the maximum number of marches has been reached. To increase marching cap, marching queue numbers, you need to build/upgrade the training ground building in the Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire. Tap the build option -> military -> training ground. If it’s locked, then keep upgrading the castle.
