Apart from the rewards mentioned above, every 10 Levels you get bonus rewards for defeating an Elite Guardian.
Each difficulty consists of 50 Levels. In order to summon a Karuak Barbarian, you need to spend 100 Action Points. Attacking the Barbarian will cost 50 Action Points per march, but if you use Peacekeeping commanders you can reduce that to 40 Action Points per march. This event requires a lot of Action Points, so take your time and do it over the course of the 4-day event duration and you won’t even have to use your Action Point potions.
Initially start with one march to attack the Barbarian and gradually increase the number of marches that you’re using whenever necessary. By the time you get to four marches, don’t attack the Barbarians on your own instead start launching rallies as it’s cheaper that way. In case you don’t have enough rally capacity, ask for help from your Alliance members.
Tip: Use consecutive attacks for as long as you can to save your Action Points. It’s will save you 2 Action Points per attack, it doesn’t sound that much but it adds up.
When your Alliance is playing on Normal difficulty or above, your Alliance Leaders are able to summon Chieftains. In order to summon these Chieftains, certain prerequisites needs to be met.
|“First of Blades” Andaal|
At least 15 alliance members must have completed Challenge 15 on NORMAL difficulty or higher.
At least 20 alliance members must have completed Challenge 20 on HARD difficulty or higher.
|Shield Chieftain Murdos|
At least 25 alliance members must have completed Challenge 40 on HARD difficulty or higher.
|Vodoo Priest Pache|
At least 30 alliance members must have completed Challenge 30 on NIGHTMARE difficulty or higher.
At least 35 alliance members must have completed Challenge 35 on HELL difficulty or higher.
Players can only use one march to attack the Chieftain, so be sure to bring your best commanders in that march, also don’t forget to bring 2-3 extra marches as backup incase Voodoo Priest or Solon Por kills your initial march. Chieftains drop various rewards when defeated, all alliance members that participated in the attack will receive random rewards. These rewards include Gems, Teleports, Sculptures, Equipment Blueprint (Solon Por only) among others.
Because of how lucrative the rewards are and the effort it takes to get them, Karuak is one of the best events in Rise of Kingdoms. Make sure that you complete all 50 Levels whenever the event is available for your Kingdom. Ask for Help from your Alliance members if you need to and Help them whenever they need it.
