This FAQ aims to answer 10 of the most frequently asked questions new players have in Lords Mobile.
1. How do I form a guild, I can’t see the option?
First of all you need to make sure you are not already a member of another guild. If you are you need to leave that guild first by clicking on the guild icon on the tool bar, selecting “manage guild” and then “leave guild”.
You are now free to create your own guild by selecting the guild icon again and then tapping “create guild”.
You need to choose a guild name, tag and logo. Now set the default language for your guild. which will help other players identify what your preferred language is. Click “create” and you will be the owner of a brand new guild.
2. I’m constantly at zero food. How do I get of negative production?
Once you get a moderately sized army food production starts to become an issue. First you need to go for a pure farm setup. That means all resource tiles should have farms on except for one mine, one lumber mill and one quarry.
Next you need to craft some food equipment in your workshop. You should keep this on your hero any time you are not in combat. Make sure you research food production has high as possible in your Academy.
If you have already maxed out the research and construction hero skills mentioned in my beginners guide, you should then sink the rest of your points into food production boosts. Start with maxing Food Production III.
Finally you can use items to increase food production and reduce troop food upkeep. A combination of the above should get your turf back into positive food production, even with a large army to support.
3. Do my troops die when my food runs out?
No they don’t, but it does make it a lot harder to upgrade buildings and research with negative food production.
Trying to build, research and train with negative food production can be quite difficult, so I would always suggest going for a farm build whilst you are still levelling.
4. How do I destroy troops and traps?
For troops, click on your barracks and then select the troop type you want to destroy. There should be a dismiss button in the bottom left that allows you to select the number of troops you want to dismiss.
For traps it is exactly the same except you need to do this through your Castle Walls.
5. How do I move to another kingdom?
If you are past Castle level 5 you can’t move another kingdom unless you create a new account. If you are Castle level 5 or under and are within 7 days of creating your account, you can use a beginners’ relocator to move kingdoms. This is explained in more detail in our Beginners Guide to Lords Mobile.
6. Should I attack with a single troop type or balanced soldiers?
99% of the time it is better to have a single troop type when attacking, but a balanced army for defense. i.e. you should attack with a whole army of just infantry, ranged, or cavalry troops. You might want the throw in a few siege to help take down the walls.
The main reason this is better for an attacker is because you can stack a single troops offensive skills much higher than you can if you had to increase all three troop type stats. This means all your troops will do more damage overall.
For defense you want a balanced army because you never know what troop type will attack you.
7. How do I play Lords Mobile on a PC or Mac?
You can play the game on certain approved emulators such as Bluestacks, which will allow you to play on a PC or Mac. You should make sure your game is tied to your Facebook account in order to switch devices, including PC and Mac.
8. What is the Wonder?
The Wonder is located right at the center of a kingdom. You can get to yours by going to the world map and then entering your kingdom.
Any guild leader who seizes the wonder becomes Overlord, or Conqueror. Overlord is give to a guild leader that is from the same kingdom as the wonder. Conqueror is given to a guild that captures a base in a different kingdom.
Wonders goes through two different phases: Battle phase and Protection phase. During battle phase the wonder becomes contested and can be attacked. The guild that holds the wonder for the longest period of time during this phase becomes the occupier and the titles above are awarded to the guild leader.
The wonder then enters protection phase, which means it is locked down and cannot be attacked. Occupying the wonder gives your guild special bonuses, titles and rewards.
9. How can I train troops faster?
Training troops can take quite a bit of time in Lords Mobile. The following allows you to increase troop training speed:-
- Build lots of Manors and upgrade them as high as possible.
- Max out Hero Training Speed I & II.
- Craft Training Speed Equipment.
- Research Troop Training Speed.
- Try to keep your training queue going 24/7
The final one is probably the most important, because if you are not training troops continuously all the training speed boosts in the world will not help you!
10. What happens when my hero is executed?
If the unthinkable happens and your leader is executed by another player, don’t worry it’s not as bad as you may think. First of all be reassured that all of your equipment is 100% safe.
You will need to purchase a revival fruit which can be bought for 60,000 guild coins, or 1,000 gems. This will bring your hero back to life with full xp and all of your items!
