Lets begin the walkthrough by introducing myself. My name is Kambel and I

as your how-to guide. I'me very pleased. Before we start on the game's

If you are brave enough to try it, then welcome to the awesome Strategy      
game known as Arcane Empires.                                                
                                                                             
Starting a game                                               [Walk3.2]------

Remember, once you start the game, you will be under Beginner's Protection,  
this will last for 7 days or until your Citadel reches level 5. I would not  
upgrade my Citadel to level 5 until a few minutes before your Beginner's     
Protect runs out. This way you will be given 7 days to build your city before
you are vulnerable to attacks. But we will discuss this later on.            
                                                                             
Now to start a game, you will have to follow the in-game tutorial. You can   
turn off the tutorial later on. Once you have finished the tutorial, the     
first thing you should do is to give yourself a new name. To change your     
screen name, you must click the "Level/Power/Name" button found on the city  
screen in the top left-hand corner. Once you have opened it up, a new screen 
will appear. This creen will have three tabs. The tabs are "Details" "Cities"
and "World". The main screen will have the "Details" tab open. The other two 
tabs we will discuss later on. If you look near the bottom of this screen,   
you should see a white bar. Click on this. Now insert the screen name you    
wish to use for yourself. Once done, press the "Use" button. Congrats, you   
have just changed your name. Now, the next thing we need to do is build some 
Homesteads for your townspeople. To do so, click on an empty lot anywhere in 
the city. Now click on "Homesteads" and now click on "Build". You are going  
to need at least 4 Homesteads. Level up those Homesteads to level 2.         
                                                                             
Leveling up your buildings                                    [walk3.3]------
--------------------------                                                   
To level up your buildings to a higher level, simply tap on a Homestead or a 
Training Grounds or any building of your choice. If you have the correct     
amount of resources and you meet the proper requirements, a blue button will 
appear. It will say "Upgrade" on it. Tap it to upgrade your building. After  
you have upgraded your Homesteads to level 2, you should go build some       
ressource Farms. To access your resource fields, you can tap on the little   
button found in the bottom left-hand side of the screen. You are going to    
want more resource buildings. First, upgrade your "Farm" to level 5. Once    
you have a level 5 Farm, you will be able to build Managerie. Next build 3   
more Farms in the empty lots next to your first Farm. The next thing you are 
going to wanna do is to build a couple of Sawmills Once you have finished,   
scroll the menu bar, found at bottom of the screen (it will show "Shop",     
"Missions", "Alliance" and "Mail"). Scroll the menu bar to the left. You will
now see 4 new menus. The one we are going to need is "Settings". Once you    
have opened the "Settings" menu, click on the "Kabam ID". Next, click on     
"Create a new Kabam ID account". You will need to register this game with an 
email and password. Doing this will allow you to save your game progress and 
be able to participate in in-game events. You will also be able to continue  
your game on a different device, should you decide to. Once you have finished
registering, return to the city screen. By now you should be a Level 3       
player. If your not a Level 3 player yet, simply continue to build and       
upgrade your buildings until you have leveled up. Now, the next task is to   
build yourself an Embassy. This will only take you 15 seconds. When you have 
built your Embassy, you will be able to Create or Join an Alliance.          
                                                                             
To join or create an alliance, scroll the menu bar to the right, if you      
haven't already done so. Now I recommend Joining an alliance for now. This   
is the biggest challenge you must overcome... Choosing the right alliance to 
join. Choosing the right alliance can be very difficult. Each alliance has   
their own set of rules and have some requirements that must be matched before
anyone can join. You are going to need an Active and helpful alliance, one   
that can also help you by donating extra resources for you so as you won't   
go dry while you are building your city. Finding one Alliance that matches   
these demands out of many can be frustrating. You don't wanna go joining one 
because they have a name that you like, that can sometimes in itself lead    
to danger.                                                                   
                                                                             
Choosing the right Alliance                                   [walk3.4]------
---------------------------                                                  
When choosing an alliance, you will need to make sure that they can meet your
needs. To choose the best alliance, it may be wise to send a message to their
Chancellor or any other player within the guild. When sending the message, it
would be best to ask them some of the following questions, as to make sure   
that your making the right decision. Remember, they have to be willing to    
help you through and through. The questions you should ask are:              
                                                                             
You must search for an alliance that is as active as your going to be, so    
your first question should be:                                               
                                                                             
1. How active is your alliance?                                              
                                                                             
Next, you will need members who will be willing to help you grow strong and  
powerful, so your next question should be:                                   
                                                                             
2. Would your alliance be able to provide me with help whenever I am in need,
   no matter what the issue may be?                                          
                                                                             
You are going to need an alliance that will have your back when your in      
trouble, so you need to ask:                                                 
                                                                             
3. If I get attacked by someone, depending on how big the attacker and his   
   troops may be, would you be willing to reinforce me or at least attack him
   back, should the occasion ever arise?                                     
                                                                             
Next, you need to make sure that they can supply you with adequate resources 
so your next question aught to be:                                           
                                                                             
4. If I run out of resources while I'm building or Training, would your      
   alliance be willing to supply me with an adequate amount?                 
                                                                             
You need to know if an alliance is at war with any other alliances, so you'll
want to ask:                                                                 
                                                                             
5. Is your alliance currently at war with two or more alliances?             
                                                                             
Now the following will be categories on which you may have to make a         
preference on when it comes to choosing an alliance.                         
                                                                             
1. Do I wanna be a might hugger or do I wanna use my powerful army to attack 
   other players?                                                            
                                                                             
2. Do I care about being a top ranked player, if so do I need to be in a Top 
   10 allliance?                                                             
                                                                             
3. Do I want an alliance that's always chatting about in the chat room or do 
   I want an alliance that will sit back and take action over peace ?        
                                                                             
Remember, when choosing an alliance that's right for you, they have to meet  
your criteria. Never forget that each player is different, so their views on 
what a perfect alliance for them will always be different. Now the next      
section I will cover will be how to train Troops and grow your power.        
                                                                             
Gaining Power                                                 [Walk3.5]------
-------------                                                                
First off, ask yourself this: "What is Power?" The answer "Power is the      
total calculation of how many troops you have at your disposal. Power is an  
indicator of how powerful you are. Power will determine who will win in an   
all out war or in a one-on-one battle royale. Power is your friend. When     
gaining Power, you first must have the following requirements:               
- You must have at least 4 Training Grounds built. The more Training Grounds 
  you have, the faster your troop training will be. Also, the more Training  
  Grounds you have built, will allow you to train more troop sequences. For  
  example, if I have a total of 5 Training Grounds built, I can set up a     
  queue of 5 different troops to be trained all at once.                     
- One of those Training Grounds must be at least level 4 or higher. You only 
  need 1 Training Ground to be a high level. The higher the level, the better
  the troops you can train. There are 3 Tiers of troops. To train the 1st    
  tier, you need at least a Level 1-4 Training Ground. to train the Tier 2   
  troop set, your Training Ground need to be at least a level 4 - 6 Training 
  and to train a Tier 3 troop set, you will require a level 7-10 Training    
  Ground. How the more Training Grounds you have built thing works is: If you
  have one Level 9 Training Ground and three Level 1 Training Grounds, then  
  using the Level 1 Training Ground you can still train any of the 3 differ- 
  ent Tier troops.                                                           
- You will need to have the following researches at Level 4 or higher:       
  - Ancient Wisdom; Mythic Lore; Levitation Charm, Crystal Fusion; Crystal   
    Mastery and Weapon Charm.                                                
- You will require to have a Rampart built to build Defensive Troops.        
  However, I would not recommend building any kind of Defensive Troops. They 
  may be the fastest to build, but they are the easiest to lose.             
                                                                             
Troops                                                        [walk3.6]------
------                                                                       
Your troops are used to protect your city from being plundered, and for      
attacking Islands, Imperial Forts, and other players. Each troop type has a  
Power value that contributes to your overall Power in the game. Increase your
Power to become the strongest rebel in the free cities!                      
                                                                             
Unit Stats                                                                   
----------                                                                   
Each unit in the game has stats that you can see by opening the Training     
Grounds. Here is what they mean:                                             
   * Attack: This is how much damage each unit can deal.                     
   * Life: This is how much damage each unit can absorb before it is         
   destroyed.                                                                
   * Speed: This stat determines how quickly that unit can move accross the  
   Map.                                                                      
   * Load: This is the amount of resources the unit can carry.               
                                                                             
Units are divided into 3 tiers. Troops in higher tiers have superior stats to
those in the lower tiers.                                                    
   * Tier 1 (Rebels, Pegasus Knights, Centaurs, Supply Mules)                
   * Tier 2 (Vanguard Warriors, Hawk Riders, Minotaurs, Supply Carts)        
   * Tier 3 (War Mage, Griffons, Basilisks, Air Barges)                      
                                                                             
Unit Types and Modifiers                                                     
------------------------                                                     
There are 4 distinct types of troops, divided into 3 tiers:                  
   * Ground (Rebels, Vanguard Warriors, War Mages)                           
   * Air (Pegasus Knights, Hawk Riders, Griffons)                            
   * Mythical (Centaurs, Minotaurs, Basilisks)                               
   * Supply (Supply Mule, Supply Carts, Air Barges)                          
                                                                             
The unit types all have specified strengths and weaknesses against each other
(with the exception of Supply Mules, which have no attacking power).         
                                                                             
   Air Troops have a bonus against Ground Troops;                            
   Ground Troops have a bonus against Mythical Troops;                       
   Mythical Troops have a bonus against Air Troops.                          
                                                                             
Higher tier troops will defeat lower tier troops even if they are weak       
against the opposing troop type.                                             
                                                                             
Captains and Research                                                        
---------------------                                                        
The outcome of a battle is also affected by the level of the opposing Captain
and the research completed by either side. Specifically, the higher the level
of your Captain assigned to march, and of your Weapon Charm and Healing Charm
the better your chance of winning.                                           
                                                                             
Hide Troop Option                                                            
-----------------                                                            
The Hide Troops feature is located inside your Citadel. You can turn on Hide 
Troops if you would like to avoid losing troops to an enemy attack. This     
allows you to build up your troops and fight another day.                    
   Defending with troops can significantly increase your defensive capabilit-
ies, but is a risky strategy. Defending troops can be destroyed by a superior
attacker, and the cost of replacing them might be greater than the value of  
the resources looted in the attack.                                          
                                                                             
Buildings                                                     [walk3.7]------
---------                                                                    
In this section I will we will be discussing the different type of buildings 
you will be using during your game-play. We will start with the most         
important building of the game, that is the Citadel.                         
                                                                             
Citadel                                                                      
-------                                                                      
The Citadel is the center of your City! Each upgrade allows you to conquer   
one more Island and use three new Resource fields.                           
                                                                             
   Tax Rate and Happiness                                                    
   ----------------------                                                    
   Silver is required for a variety of in-game activities including Research 
   and paying salaries to Captains assigned to Roles.                        
                                                                             
   Your Tax Rate determines the amount of Silver you can collect from your   
   Population. The higher it is, the more Silver you collect. Be careful     
   though - the lower the Happiness of your city, the harder it will be to   
   raise your Population.                                                    
                                                                             
   Hide All Troops Option                                                    
   ----------------------                                                    
   The Hide All Troops feature is located inside your Citadel. You can turn  
   it on to avoid losing troops when you are under attack. This allows you to
   build up your troops and fight another day.                               
      Defending with troops can signifficantly increase your defensive capa- 
   bilities, but is a risky strategy. Defending troops can be destroyed by a 
   superior attacker, and the cost of replacing them might be greater than   
   the value of the resources looted in the attack.                          
                                                                             
   Beginner's Protection                                                     
   ---------------------                                                     
   Every new player is granted a protection period during which they cannot  
   attack other players and they cannot be attacked or scouted by other      
   players. This period lasts for the first 7 days of play, or until your Ci-
   tadel reaches level 5, whichever comes first. Use this period to build up 
   your city and your troops so you are prepared for battle!                 
      You may put your troops to the test by attacking Imperial Forts and un-
   occupied Islands. This will not end your Beginner's Protection. You may   
   opt out of the Beginner's Protection before the 7 days are up.            
      Once out of Beginner's Protection, your cities can be attacked by other
   players in the game. Cities can be defended by two types of units: Rampart
   defenses and troops.                                                      
      You may extend this peace period or declare peace at anytime by using a
   Truce item. These can be won in Mikko's Market or purchased from the Shop.
                                                                             
Warehouse                                                                    
---------                                                                    
The Warehouse protects your Food, Wood, Crystal, and Iron from being plunder-
ed. Upgrade it to protect more Resources.                                    
                                                                             
   Resources                                                                 
   ---------                                                                 
   Resources are used to upgrade buildings, train troops, and complete re-   
   search. There are five main resources: Food, Wood, Crystal, Iron, and Sil-
   ver. Food, Wood, Crystal, and Iron are produced by Farms, Sawmills, Crys- 
   tal Mines, and Ironworks respectively. Your resource production can be in-
   creased by building on more Field plots, conquering Islands, appointing a 
   Captain to the Quartermaster position, conducting Research, and using Pro-
   duction Boost items. All resources except Silver can be protected from    
   looting by your Warehouse. The higher the Warehouse level, the greater the
   protection limit.  Silver is produced by taxing your Population. You can  
   adjust your Tax Rate in your Citadel. Increasing the number and level of  
   Homesteads raises Population, which also helps generate more Silver.      
   Resources can be transfered to Alliance members, or between your own      
   cities.

The Embassy allows you to join or create Alliances, and also houses reinforc-
ing armies. Upgrade to house more reinforcements.

   You may want to create your own Alliance, become Chancellor and climb up  
   the Alliance rankings by acquiring members and working with them to defeat
   others!

   You can only reinforce and be reinforced by players in the same Alliance. 
   You can receive individual reinforcements up to the level of your Embassy.
   In other words, if you have a Level 5 Embassy, you can receive five rein- 
   forcing marches, each conatining an unlimited number of troops. Remember, 
   all reinforcing troops in your city will consume Food.

   As a member of an Alliance, you can view all of the scout and march report
   for every member of your Alliance. However, if the individual player has  
   deleted a march report in their Reports folder, it will also be deleted in
   the Alliance Reports folder.

   One of the biggest advantages of being a member of an Alliance is the abi-
   lity to socialize and coordinate with your fellow Alliance members. To vi-
   ew Alliance Chat, tap on the Chat bar and then the Alliance tab at the top

   Alliance Officers can send mass messages to all alliance members by tappin
   Alliance and then the Message Everyone button on the Info tab.

   Alliance officers can set diplomacy for other Alliances in the world. The 
   three options for diplomacy are Hostile, Friendly, and Neutral.           
                                                                             
   All Friendly settings must be reciprocated. In other words, if an Alliance
   A marks Alliance B as Friendly, Alliance B must reciprocate with the same 
   setting for Alliance A for the official Diplomacy setting of Friendly to  
   take effect.                                                              
                                                                             
   A Hostile setting will take effect immediately and does not require reci- 
   procation.

The Relief Station helps your troops move faster to and from your Cities and 
those of your allies. Upgrade to move even faster!                           
                                                                             
   The Relief Station increases your troops' march speed between your cities 
   and to your allies' cities. This means a decrease in the amount of time it
   takes them to transport, reinforce or be reassigned. The more you upgrade 
   the Relief Station, the faster they will march.

   ----------                                                                
   Each unit in the game has stats that you can see by opening the Training  
   Grounds. Here is what they mean:                                          
                                                                             
      * Attack: This is how much damage each unit can deal.                  
      * Life: This is how much damage each unit can absorb before it is de-  
        stroyed.                                                             
      * Speed: This stat determines how quickly that unit can move accross   
        the Map.                                                             
      * Load: This is the amount of resources the unit can carry.            
                                                                             
   Units are divided into 3 tiers. Troops in higher tiers have superior stats
   to those in lower tiers.                                                  
                                                                             
      * Tier 1 (Rebels, Pegasus Knights, Centaurs, Supply Mules)             
      * Tier 2 (Vanguard Warriors, Hawk Riders, Minotaurs, Supply Carts)     
      * Tier 3 (War Mage, Griffons, Basilisks, Air Barges)                   
                                                                             
   Unit Types and Modifiers                                                  
   ------------------------                                                  
   There are 4 distinct types of troops, divided into 3 tiers:               
                                                                             
      * Ground (Rebels, Vanguard Warriors, War Mages)                        
      * Air (Pegasus Knights, Hawk Riders, Griffons)                         
      * Mythical (Centaurs, Minotaurs, Basilisks)                            
      * Supply (Supply Mules, Supply Carts, Air Barges)                      
                                                                             
   The unit types all have specified strengths and weaknesses against each   
   other (with the exception of Supply Mules which have no attacking power). 
                                                                             
   Air Troops have a bonus against Ground Troops;                            
                                                                             
   Ground Troops have a bonus againts Mythical Troops;                       
                                                                             
   Mythical Troops have a bonus against Air Troops.                          
                                                                             
   Higher tier troops will defeat lower tier troops even if they are weak    
   against the opposing troop type.                                          
                                                                             
   Captains and Research                                                     
   ---------------------                                                     
   The outcome of a battle is also affected by the level of the opposing Cap-
   tains and the research completed by either side. Specifically, the higher 
   the level of your Captain assigned to march, and of your Weapon Charm and 
   Healing Charms, the better your chance of winning.                        
                                                                             
   Hide Troop Option                                                         
   -----------------                                                         
   The Hide Troops feature is located inside your Citadel. You can turn on   
   Hide Troops if you would like to avoid losing troops to an enemy attack.  
   This allows you to build up your troops and fight another day.            
                                                                             
   Defending with troops can significantly increase your defensive capabili- 
   ties, but is a risky strategy. Defending troops can be destroyed by a su- 
   perior attacker, and the cost of replacing them might be greater than the 
   value of the resouces looted in the attack.                               
                                                                             
Rally Point                                                                  
-----------                                                                  
Assemble your troops at the Rally Point to attack enemies, reinforce allies, 
or transport resources. Upgrade to send more troops.                         
                                                                             
   March                                                                     
   -----                                                                     
   Marches move your troops around the Map. There are 3 types of Marches: At-
   tack, Reinforce, and Transport.                                           
                                                                             
   Attack: You can attack Islands, Imperial Forts, and other players. Each   
   attack must be led by a Captain. The number of troops you can send and the
   number of simultaneous marches are determined by the level of your Rally  
   Point.                                                                    
                                                                             
   Reinforce: You can reinforce your Islands and allied cities. Reinforcing  
   troops consume Food while in allied cities. The number of armies allowed  
   to reinforce an allied city is determined by the level of the Embassy in  
   that city.                                                                
                                                                             
   Transport: Support an Alliance member with resources, or move them between
   your cities. Transport marches do not require a Captain.

   Scouting gives you vital information about locations on the Map. Scouting 
   is free, but you are limited to launching one Scout at a time and it takes
   time for information to be collected. Research higher levels of Second    
   Sight to yield more information with each Scout. Alternately, you can pur-
   chase Instant Scout with Gold: it produces Scout reports with information 
   equivalent to level 10 Second Sight.

   The Map is where the action is. Attack and conquer Islands, loot Imperial 
   Forts, attack enemies, and help allies.                                   
                                                                             
   Swipe with your finger to move around the Map. Tap on an individual tile  
   to bring up that tile's details, tap the tile again to close the details  
   pop-up. Tap with two fingers to toggle on/off individual tile levels. The 
   buttons at the top of the screen allows you to (from left): center the map
   on your city, open your saved Bookmarks, and jump to specific coordinates 
   on the map.                                                               
                                                                             
   There are three types of map tiles: Islands, Imperial Forts, and Cities.  
                                                                             
   Islands help boost your resource production. Different Islands boost      
   different resources: for example, owning a level 6 Verdant Isle will boost
   your food produxtion by 30%. To own an Island, you must attack it and win 
   the battle. You can own a number of Islands equal to your Citadel's level.
   You can abandon an Island that you own by going to the Citadel and select-
   ing the Conquests tab.                                                    
                                                                             
   Imperial Forts are owned by the evil Prince Dessen. Attack them and return
   home with vauable resources! Higher level Imperial Forts are harder to    
   beat, but also hold more resources. You cannot own an Imperial Fort.      
                                                                             
   Cities are owned by other players. Attack them to loot resources, or send 
   resources or reinforcing troops to cities owned by your allies.           
                                                                             
   Cities represent other users in the game. If you are in an Alliance, your 
   Alliance cities will be displayed with a blue flag, hostile alliances will
   have a red flag displayed.

   In Arcane Empires, players can train troops and use them to attack Islands
   Imperial Forts, and other players. Conquering Islands can help boost your 
   resource production, while attacking Imperial Forts and other players can 
   be a good source of additional resources.

      troops to reach the target.                                            
      9. After the troops are done fighting, you will receive a battle report
      under Mail - Report.

ence. Upgrade it to unlock more Captains.

   Captaons lead your armies into battle and give valuable boosts to your    
   troops and city. To recruit more Captains, upgrade your Officers' Quarters
   Captains earn experience points (needed to level up) from battle and via  
   certain combat Items available from the shop.                             
                                                                             
   You can also assign your Captains to a role in your city. As long as a    
   Captain is assigned to a role, your city receives bonuses in proportion to
   the Captain's level. Captains assigned to a role need a salary in Silver  
   and are not available for marches.

   The Arcane Spire is where you store your Relics, and where you can combine
   them into useful items such as Second City Deeds. Upgrading your Arcane   
   Spire increases your chance of discovering Relics when you attack Imperial
   Forts.

   Food, Wood, Crystal, and Iron are produced by Farms, Sawmills, Crystal Mi-
   nes, and Ironworks respectively. Your resource production can be increased
   by building on more Field plots, conquering Islands, appointing a Captain 
   to the Quartermaster position, conducting Research, and using Production

The following is a text-view screen-shot of the Map screen. It is presented  
much different than the City and Field view screens. As you may notice, there
isn' much of a difference, other than you will NOT see a notification for any
incoming attacks, so you will be basicaly a sitting-duck. Good luck. The Map 
is where you need to go if you are interested in sending Resources, troop    
reinforcements to your cities and those of your allies. You can also use the 
Map to attack and conquer Wilds and Plains, attack other player's cities and 
attack Pictish Camps.

To progress further in the game, you must Research new technology. By        
researching new technology, you can improve your Life and Attack of Troops,  
build Buildings faster, Increase Scouting speed and much more. The following 
is a list of all the Technologies that you will need to research as well as  
the requirements that need to be met in order to access them. All researches 
can be accessed via the Laboratory. By default, all technologies can be      
researched to level 9 through standard game play. They can reach level 10,   
which is the maximum level, only through the help of a level 10 laboratory   
and the necessary level 10 buildings that are required to perform said       
research.

You will need to train troops to be able to attack Imperial Forts, other     
players and conquer Islands. They are also needed to transport resources and 
reinforce your cities and those of your allies. Rampart defenses are needed  
to fend off some of those nasty attackers.

   ----------------                                                          
   The following is a list of Rampart Defenses and the requirements needed to
   build/train tem.                                                          
                                                                             
   To train Rampart Defenses, tap on your city's Ramparts, then tap on the

Here I will be explaining what Captains are as well as items that you can buy
and receive from events that are needed to help them gain experience and to  
level up.                                                                    
                                                                             
                              What is a Captain?                             
                              -----------------                              
A Captain is the person who will lead your troops into battle. A Captain can 
be assigned to help with the resource production, building times, training   
times and research speed. A Captain is one of the most used and important    
character in Arcane Empires. Sending your Captain into battle will allow him 
to gain experience, other than using items. When using battle to level up    
your Captain's experience, he will gain them like so:                        
                                                                             
   * By being successful in battle, your Captain will earn 20 points at a    
     time;                                                                   
   * By failing in battle, your Captain will only gain 10 exp points.        
                                                                             
Here is a list of items that you can buy or win through an event that will   
help level up your Captain's level and add to his experience.        .------.

Mikko's Market                                                [Walk3.13]-----

Mikko's Market is a game  of chance. Everyday starting at 0:00 UTC, you will 
receive a free Mikko's Token. Use it to receive a prize. To play the         
'classic' Mikko's Market, you will require 1 Mikko's Token. You have a choice
of selecting 1 of 9 chests. Each chest contains a different prize, and is    
never the same twice. You can win almost anything that can be found in the   
shop and then some, with the exclusion of Third City Deeds, Chest sets, and  
the Event items. In the Classic Mikko's Market game, there is a 1 in 100,000 
chance of winning troop sets. The other Chance game is Mikko's 'Premium'     
Chance. In this Premium game, you will need a total of 6 Mikko's Tokens to   
receive one play. However, in the Premium chance game, you can win better    
prizes, like a Crystal Architecture, Troops, Second City Deeds, and much     
more. The following is a text-view screenshot of the Mikko's Market chance   
game.

Items and the Shop                                            [Walk3.14]-----

We are sorry. This section has been removed from this walkthrough and placed 
into a seperate guide. Please refer yourself to the site where you found this
walkthrough or to http://miyustory.com/faqs/arcaneempires for access to the  
"Items Guide". The "Items Guide" is available in both English and French lan-
guages. Once again we are sorry for this inconveniance. Thank you.           
                                                                             
Alliance diplomacy and settings                               [walk3.16]-----
-------------------------------                                              
One of the biggest rules about being in an alliance is to know how to read   
the flags found on the map. There are two color flags: blue and red. As you  
may have already guessed, a red flag indicates a tile that is being occupied 
by an enemy of an alliance whose diplomacy is set to hostile against your    
alliance. Those occupying a red flag, are an imediate threat to you and to   
your allies. These players must be attacked without warning and without      
permission from your alliance leaders. As  for the tiles that are marked with
a blue flag, these are players are belonging to an alliance whose diplomacy  
is set to Friendly against your alliance. Blue Flags also indicate the       
location of a city or wild that is being occupied by one of your alliance    
members. Remember, an easier way to find out who you are friendly and hostile
with, tap on the 'Alliance' tab found at the bottom of the screen, then tap  
on the 'Your Diplomacy with other Alliances' button that is found on the main
window that appears. Now look at the list of all the alliances that you are  
Firendly or Hostile with.                                                    
                                                                             
Finding your enemies                                          [walk3.17]-----
--------------------                                                         
There are many ways to find out the location of your enemy's City or Wild.   
One of the best ways that I prefer for doing this, is to access the map      
database found online at http://arcane.map.weezeewig.com and select your     
world. Now once you have access to the map, enter "user:" followed by the    
name of the player you are looking for, ex "user:TwilightGoddess" into the   
Search box. Now select "Search". If all goes well, you should see a list or a
cluster of the user's current city and conquered wilds locations in relation 
to its position on the map. Another way is to wait for them to attack you,   
then read the Attack Report to see who attacked you, where they attacked you 
and where the attack came from in relation to the map, i.e. the Coordinates. 
One last way of finding your enemies is to thoroughly check each section and 
segment of the map by hand. Doing this last one, will take about 6-8 hours,  
if doine non-stop. I wouldn't recommend it.                                  
                                                                             
The Global and Alliance ChatRoom                              [walk3.18]-----
--------------------------------                                             
There exists currently two types of Chatrooms in the game, one is known as   
'Global' and the other as 'Alliance'. If you have not yet figured it out, the
Global chat room allows you to connect and communicate with all players from 
around the globe, whereas the Alliance chatroom only allows you to comunicate
with players in realtime sho belong to your alliance. Using these chatrooms, 
you can obtain massive information about all the players and some will even  
occasionally spill secrets through whisper fails. To whisper someone, there  
are two ways of doing so, one is to click on the player's name, then tap on  
the Whisper button. Another way is to type in the user's name like this:     
"@TwilightGoddess" or like "\TwilightGoddess". Whispering someone is a way of
communicating messages in chat that are not visable to the other players. As 
you may have already guessed, my in-game name is TwilightGoddess.            
                                                                             
How to 'Farm' another Player                                  [walk3.25]-----
----------------------------                                                 
It is important to know how to Farm. Farming is the term we like to use when 
you are sending troops to another Player's Cities to obtain their loot. To   
Farm someone, you must first have at least 100 T1 troops and at least 10     
Supply Carts or Barges. You also must take into fact, the level and power of 
the player's city you wish to farm. It is recommended that you attack a      
player who is no more than 100k might more powerful than you. If you wish to 
succeed at obtaining the player's loot, you must also send a high leveled    
Captain to lead the attack. The higher the level of the Captain, the higher  
the chances you will succeed in battle.                                      
                                                                             
There are two ways to farm someone. The first is to manually hunt for your   
target via the map. If you know the location x,y of your target, then you    
will want to insert them manually at the top of the map screen. Now tap on   
your target city. Now click on attack. Select your Captain, if any are       
available then select the troops you wish to send. Once that is done, tap on 
send attack to finish the proccess. If you are successful, you will be       
rewarded with your target's loot, if they had extra in the first place.      
Sometimes your attack will be successful, but you won't receive any loot.    
This is normal, so do not panic or worry.                                    
                                                                             
The second way to send an attack, is via the Rally Point. It is not          
recommended that you use the Rally Point when sending attacks, as it can take
a little longer to perform than it would using the map. The First thing you  
do with the Rally Point, is to select 'March Troops. Then you will want to   
select 'Attack' from the list of options found below. Now, at the top you    
will see two blank text boxes, insert coordinates x,y and then tap on 'Next.'
Now choose the Knight you want to lead the attack. Once that is complete, tap
once again on 'Next'. Now select the amount of troops you wish to send. Now  
tap on 'Send'. Now you know how to attack/ Farm someone. These techniques can
be transferred for Reinforcing, transporting and reassigning troops and      
resources to other cities. You can also use these techniques to attack and   
conquer Wilds and Pictish Camps. Do not attack Bogs as they cannot be        
attacked in the first place.                                                 
                                                                             
Push Notifications                                            [walk3.33]-----
------------------                                                           
Push Notifications are optional for use of the game, but they are turned on  
by default. You can turn them off by selecting 'Settings' tab found on the   
second section of the main Menu, also known as Hidden Menu mentioned above.  
I don't know how to describe the use and definition of the Push Notifications
, so I will try my best and if I cannot succeed in giving you the proper in- 
formation, then I will remove this section from the walkthrough in one of the
next updates.                                                                
                                                                             
Push Notifications, when turned "on" inform the player that a particular     
project has been completed, such as Building finished being constructed,     
Research finished being researched, incoming attacks and incoming mail. Some 
of these features work, but others don't. If you have the Push Notifications 
turned on, you will be notified on the 'Lock Screen' or via a banner on your 
iOS device.                                                                  
                                                                             
There are currently three Push Notification options: City, March and Mail.   
The Mail Notification is very buggy so 99.9% of the time, you will NOT be    
notified of incoming mail. As for the City Notifications, Kabam, INC. has    
removed notifications of incoming attacks from the game as it was causing    
some major technical difficulties for the development team when they we're   
making the game Android and Mobile compatible. As for the rest of the City   
notifications, you will be informed when you have successfully finished      
building, researching and when you have finished training Troops, and you    
will even be notified when your City has run out of Food. Very Handy, eh?    
Now for the 'March Notifications', you will be notified when you have        
finished sending an attack, reassigning troops, or finished transporting     
resources. Push Notifications are a great way to keep yourself informed about
anything that goes on in you're City.                                        
                                                                             
In my opinion, you should keep the Push Notifications turned on at all Times.

In order to participate in In-Game events and contests, you must first, if   
you haven't already done so, create a Kabam account. By creating an account, 
you will be able to save your game progress, be eligiable for in-game contest
and special offers. But the most important factor of creating a Kabam account
is you will earn an instant 75 Gems, free of charge.

The Game Center feature is only availble on iOS devices. This feature allows 
the user to connect their current game account to their Game Center account  
in order to achieve certain pre-set achievement goals. These Achievement     
goals can be found in the next section of this Walkthrough. Once an account

In-game Messaging (The Mailbox)                              [walk3.37]------
-------------------------------                                              
There are many ways to connect and communicate with other Players in the     
game. One of the most commonly used methods is the "v-mail." The "V-mail" is 
similar to the e-mail we use in our everyday lives. This is very simple to   
use. The following figures will highlight how to use v-mail as to better     
understand it yourself. To access the v-mail, simply click on the "Mail" tab 
found on the Main Menu bar found at the bottom of the screen. The main Menu  
bar looks like this:

   First I would like to point out that there are 3 sections to the v-mail   
   messaging systems. These are:                                             
                                                                             
      a. Mail: The Mail folder contains all of your in-coming messages from  
         the Game Developpers, your Alliance messages and mail sent to you   
         from other Players in the game. It also contains all the Invites you
         receive asking if you want to join an Alliance. The Mail folder can 
         hold and store up to 1,000 messages. Any new messages after that, an
         older one will be deleted.                                          
                                                                             
      b. Reports: The Reports folder is used specifically for holding all of 
         your In-coming and Out-going Scouts, Attack data, transportation and
         re-assignment of your Troops information. Additionally, your Reports
         folder can only hold up to 1,000 Reports. For every new Report that 
         comes in, an older Report will automatically be deleted.            
                                                                             
      c. Sent: The Sent folder contains a copy of all the mail you have sent 
         to other players within the game. The sent folder also holds up to  
         1,000 messages.                                                     
                                                                             
   The following figure shows us the Main Mail Screen.
