Our explorers reported that beyond the know regions there lies an undiscovered land. Many islands rich of resources are waiting to be explored and colonized. But we are not alone with that knowledge. Other kingdoms also compete about the resources and bandits and other shady folk are said to have colonized these islands.
In order to participate in the race on glory and resources we should build up an Expedition force. Let me explain to you what we need to do in order to prepare for this great enterprise.The preparations are ready. We can start our expedition.

The Combat Armory and Academy
Exploring unknown islands and sectors is dangerous. Thus, we need to prepare our expedition carefully. For that we should first set up some new buildings to hire specialized troops and provide them with the necessary equipment.Nice work. We're ready to start preparing the troops we'll need for our future explorations.
Have at least 1 (s) on your island. Have at least 1 (s) on your island.
When sending out troops on an expedition, they'll require an expert leader. Luckily, our nearest tavern contains plenty of expert marshals. These battle-hardened strategists know how to deal with the unknown dangers of unexplored worlds.
Remember You can't use your standard generals on expeditions, so you'll need to use marshals instead.With our specialists ready we are well on our way to exploring new lands.
Have at least 3 marshal(s) on your home island.
75 150 150
In the Combat Armory you can produce new weapons for our expedition forces. The armory works like a provision house, letting you produce weapons just like you would a regular buff. To begin with, we'll need some heavy maces, attack pikes, and attack bows.Great, you got all the weapons we require to equip our troops! Well done!
Produce at least 75 . Produce at least 150 . Produce at least 150 .
Our new troops can be trained in the Combat Academy. For our first expedition, I would recommend training some Heavy infantry units, alongside attack archers and attack infantry.
Keep in mind that you cannot use regular troops- those that have been recruited in the barracks - on an expedition island. You need troops from the combat academy.Our troops are ready to set off on an exploration, just give the word!
Have 50 Heavy Infantry Have 50 Attack Infantry Have 50 Attack Archer(s)
A medipack - just in case
These expeditions can be very dangerous. We need to be sure that not only are we taking enough troops with us, but that we have enough medical supplies too.
Our provisioner now can produce expedition medipacks. With these, we can instantly revive our marshals, should they be defeated in battle. You should probably produce some - just in case, of course.Great! Now that you've produced some medipacks, we'll be able to instantly revive our marshals when they get defeated. I, er, I mean if. If...
Produce at least 3 .
Your First Expedition
Now that we're all set, it's starting to get serious. Our explorers have made it to an island at the edge of the uncharted territories. We should send expedition troops there to find out what dangers we will be dealing with. You can find the expedition map in your Star Menu.
Note If you want to play the expedition again for more practice, you can get it in the Shop for a low price.Congratulations! You have completed your first expedition.
Send Your Expedition Forces
Once you've selected the expedition island, choose the option "Send Army" from the quest tracker, and send off your three marshals with your trained troops.Good work. Your marshals are on their way to this mysterious island. They will arrive there shortly.
Send 3 marshals to the expedition training island

The Expedition Water Castle
As the great leader of the expedition forces, you have been awarded a water castle. This water castle shall be a symbol of your experience. Place it in the lake in the middle of your island. Right now, it may only look like a small tower, but with every 2 PvP levels you gain, it will increase its size - and our kingdom's glory.Well, look at that! Even it is still small, the expedition water castle is quite a sight, isn't it? Remember to upgrade it when you level up!
Place the water castle inside the lake
Off Into The Unknown
That small island we just cleared was only the beginning. It's time to continue towards the core of the uncharted territories. Set up an expedition force and send your explorers out to find an island to claim. But beware - you will encounter bandit forces, and might even meet troops from other kingdoms!You have just conquered your first colony. Now we can claim it as our own!
Produce More Expedition Troops
Before actually looking for a new island to explore, we should recruit some more troops.
Remember A colony island is only available for a short amount of time, so you should always have troops prepared before starting the expedition.Very good! Now we have a large enough force to set out, and discover our first real Colony.
Have 80 Heavy Infantry Have 80 Attack Infantry Have 80 Attack Archer(s) Have 80 Attack Cavalry Have 80 Heavy Archer(s) Have 80 Heavy Cavalry
Send Out The Explorers
To find a suitable island to colonize, we need to make use of our explorer's expertise. Go to your Star Menu, select any explorer and then chose the option "Find Expedition". Then fight for a small colony.
Good luck!Great, you have chosen a new expedition.
Own at least 1 Explorer(s). Search for a small colony island Confirm the selected island and start conquering it
Sending In The Troops
Now that we've gathered our forces, and found an island we'd like to explore, we should send our army to the expedition.
Do so by clicking on the Quest Tracker and then choosing "Send Army".Good, our troops are traveling to the new expedition point as we speak. They should arrive there soon.
Send an army to the Expedition Island
Conquer Your First Island
Engage and conquer your first small colony. Utilize all troops and marshals you have, but don't forget to produce more troops while fighting. You might need them!Great work! Now we have a new colony to claim for its resources.
Conquer 1 colonies.

Your First Colony
We've freed our first potential colony from its adversaries! Now, we should build up our defenses and claim it so it'll produce resources for us.
You can build defense buildings by opening the build menu in your colony zone. There you can spend the defense points you acquired by conquering the colony to construct defensive buildings.The colony is producing goods nicely!
Build Up Your Defenses
Once a colony island has been conquered, you can build additional defenses on it to protect it. Handily, our show of force and determination has convinced the local bandit leaders to fight on our side. We should improve their defense, cover its weak points, and do all we can to prevent other conquerors from taking the island from us.You've inspected the bandits' defenses. I hope you managed to improve the weak points we exploited to conquer them.
Enter the Build Defense Mode of your newly conquered island
Claim Your Colony
Now that we've put our defenses in place, we should make this island officially ours
Claim the island by pressing the "Claim Colony" button in the Colony menu. It will then start producing your resources.We have a new colony! It's already started producing resources for our kingdom.
