War of Legends is a strategy game, this means you have to manage your resources wisely, you have to build up your city, by placing several types of structures, your empire has 3 main areas to manage, the city where you construct all your buildings; the outskirts, which is used for buildings that will increase your resource income, like cropland and timber mill and a map to manage your conquests and invasions.

Tips and Tricks
War of Legends Beginners Guide
This tutorial shows you the basic screen options of the game.
If you are new to this type of game you should choose to learn more about the game.
The following screens show the various option of the game:
- Halberdier – this is the starting unit that you will be able to train. Halberdiers aren’t as strong as other types, but can be constructed quickly and Legends can lead large numbers into battle to overwhelm smaller armies. The Halberdier is slightly stronger than normal against Charioteers.
- Swordsmen – these are generally stronger than Halberdiers, but require more resources to train. Swordsmen are stronger against Archers, and their tougher armour makes them that bit more resilient in combat.
- Archers – this unit is strong against Halberdiers, however training Archers does use up a lot of resources such as wood and food. Archers also have a special ability in that they strike first in any battle. In large numbers they can defeat their opponents before they’ve even had a chance to attack!
- Charioteers – these are the strongest unit in the game, and are simply awesome in battle! They specialise against swordsmen. Legends can only lead small numbers at a time, and you will need a large population to train them, but once they charge you’ll know it was worth it.
