    Introduction                                                  [Walk3.1]------
    -------------
    Lets begin the walkthrough by introducing myself. My name is Kambel and I
    enjoy creating guides and walkthroughs that help other succeed in playing
    various games. Now, I would like to thank you for choosing my walkthrough 
    as your how-to guide. I'me very pleased. Before we start on the game's 
    step-by-step, I would like to mention that this game is highly addictive.
    If you do not wish to be hooked on this game, feel free to delete the app.
    If you are brave enough to try it, then welcome to the awesome Strategy
    game known as The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth. This game itself is 
    not recommeneded for players under the age of 14 as there will be offensive
    content in the game. 
       
    Starting a game                                               [Walk3.2]------
    ----------------                                                             
    Before starting a game, you will be asked to select what Faction you wish to
    be. You can choose to be an Elf or a Dwarf. Once you have selected your
    faction, the game can commence. Remember, once you start the game, you will
    be under Beginner's Protection, this will last for 7 days or until your Keep
    reches level 5. I would not upgrade my keep 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/Might/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
    houses for your townspeople. To do so, click on an empty lot anywhere in the
    city. Now click on "Houses" and now click on "Build". You are going to need
    at least 4 houses. Level up those houses to level 2.
       
    Leveling up your buildings                                    [walk3.3]------
    --------------------------
    To level up your buildings to a higher level, simply tap on a House or a
    Barrack 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 houses to level 2, you should go build some ressource farms. To
    access your ressource fields, you can tap on the little button found in the
    bottom left-hand side of the screen. You are going to want more ressource
    buildings. First, upgrade your "Farm" to level 5. Once you have a level 5
    farm, you will be able to build stables. 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 Lumber Mills (or Arboretum, depending on the faction you
    selected). Once you have finished, scroll the menu bar, found at bottom of
    the screen (it will show "Shop", "Quest", "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
    Regent 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 might.
       
    Building Might                                                [Walk3.5]------
    --------------
    First off, ask yourself this: "What is Might?" The answer "Might is the 
    total calculation of how many troops you have at your disposal. Might is an
    indicator of how powerful you are. Might will determine who will win in an
    all out war or in a one-on-one battle royale. Might is your friend. When 
    building might, you first must have the following requirements:
    - You must have at least 4 barracks built. The more barracks you have, the 
      faster your troop training will be. Also, the more barracks you have built,
      will allow you to train more troop sequences. For example, if I have a 
      total of 5 barracks built, i can set up a queue of 5 different troops to be
      trained all at once.
    - One of those barracks must be at least level 4 or higher. You only need 1
      barrack 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 barrack. to train the Tier 2 troop set, your barracks 
      need to be at least s level 4 - 6 barrack and to train a Tier 3 troop set,
      you will reuire a level 7-10 barrack. How the more barracks you have built
      thing works is: If you have 1 level 9 barrack and 3 level 1 barracks, then
      using the level 1 barracks you can still train any of the 3 different Tier
      troops.
    - You will need to have the following reserches at level 4 or higher:
      - Siege Weapons Lv4-Lv9
      - Horned Blades Lv4-Lv9
      - Fletching Lv4-Lv9
      - Horseshoes Lv4-Lv9
      - Masonry Lv2
      - Smelting Lv4-Lv9
      - Metal Alloys Lv4-Lv9
      - Saddlebags Lv4-Lv9
    - You will require to have a Wall built to build Wall Defenses. However, I 
      would not recommend building any kind of Wall Defenses. 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 attack;
    - Attack other players; 
    - Conquer wilds;
    - Attack Goblin Camps.
    Each troop type has a Might value that contributes to your overall Might 
    score. Increase your Might to show others you are the strongest leaedr in 
    Middle-earth!
       
    Unit Types and Modifiers:
    -------------------------
    Remember, there are 4 different types of Troops per Tier. There are 4 
    distinct classes of units: Foot, Ranged, Mounted, and Supply. Each class is
    divided into three tiers:
      - Foot: [Dawrf Troops] (Dwarven Militia, Dwarf Warriors, Battering Rams)
              [Elven Troops] (Elven Militia, Elven Warriors, Battering Rams)
       
      - Ranged: [Dwarf Troops] (Axe Throwers, Siege Crossbows, Catapults)
                [Elven Troops] (Archers, Scorpions, Ents)
       
      - Mounted: [Dwarf Troops] (Mounted Dwarves, Boar Riders, Heavy Boar Riders)
                 [Elven Troops] (Mounted Elves, Mounted Hunters, Mounted
                                 Galadhrim)
       
      - Supply: [All Factions] (Porters, Supply Carts, Supply Wagons)
       
    Supply troops have no attacking power; Ranged troops have bonus against Foot
    troops; Foot troops have bonus against Mounted Troops; Mounted troops have 
    bonus agaisnt Ranged troops.
       
    Higher-tier troops will defeat lower-tier troops even if they are weak
    against the opposing troop class.
       
    Troop Statistics
    ----------------
    Each unit in the game has statistics that reflect its strength.
       
    Statistics for regular units can be viewed by going to the Barracks,
    selecting 'Train Troops' and tapping the troop type. Statistics for Wall 
    Defenses can be viewed by going to the wall and selecting 'Train Defenses'
    followed by the defense type.
       
    Troop statistics are:
          Attack: How much damage the unit deals in battle;
          Life: How much damage the unit can absorb before it is destroyed;
          Speed: How quickly the unit can march on the map;
          Load: How much loot (Gold or resources) the unit can carry.
       
    Heroes and Research
    -------------------
    The level of your heroes and research can also impact the outcome of a
    battle. Specifically, the higher the level of the Hero assigned to march,
    and the level of your Horned Blades and Vigor research, the better your 
    chance of victory.
       
    Hide Troop option
    -----------------
    The Hide Troop feature is located inside your keep. Hidden troops cannot
    fight to defend your city, but they cannot be killed by attackers either.
       
    Defending troops can significantly increase your defensive capabilities, but
    they can be destroyed by a superior attacker. The troops you lose might be
    more valuable than the resssources that can be looted.
       
    **The Life, and Attacks of the different troops will be added in a later
      update. Sorry for this inconveniance.
       
       
    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 Keep.
       
    Keep
    ----
    The Keep is the heart of your city. Upgrade to unlock more field resource
    plots and Wilds.
       
       Tax Rate and Happiness
       ----------------------
       Gold is required for a variety of in-game activities including research
       and paying salaries to Heroes assigned to roles at the Great Hall.
       
       Your Gold income depents on your tax rate and your Population. Raising the
       tasx rate decreases Happiness, which can lead to a drop in Population
       (See Population Help under home)
       
       Hide Troop Option
       -----------------
       The hide troops feature is located inside your keep.
       
       Beginner's Protection
       ---------------------
       Every new player is granted Beginner's Protection.
       
       Beginners cannot be attacked or scouted by other players for their first
       7 days or until their Keep reaches level 5, whichever comes first. Use
       this period to build up your city and troops to prepare for the battles to
       come!
       
       While under Beginner's Protection, you may still put your troops to the 
       test by attacking Goblin Camps and unoccupied Wilds. You may opt out of
       Beginner's Protection by attacking another player before the 7 days are
       up.
       
       Once your beginner's protection has expired, your cities can be attacked
       by other players. Cities can be defended by troops and Wall Defenses.
       
       You may extend your Beginner's Protection or declare peace at any time by
       purchasing Protection Rune items from the Shop.
       
    Vault
    -----
    The vault protects a limited amount of resources from being plundered by
    enemy attacks.
       
       Resources
       ---------
       Resources are used to upgrade buildings, build troops and complete 
       research. THere are five main resources: Food, Wood, Stone, Ore and Gold.
       
       Food, Wood, Stone, and Ore are produced by buildings in your Fields.
       Resource production can be increased by:
           -Building more Field plots;
           -Conquering Wilds;
           -Appointing a Hero to the Production position;
           -Completing appropriate Research;
           -Using items that boost production.
       
       All resources except Gold can be protected by your Vault. The higher your
       Vault's level, the more resources it can protect.
       
       Gold is produced by taxing your Population. You can adjust your tax rate
       in your Keep under the  tab. Building and upgrading Homes can increase tax
       revenue by raising Population.
       
       Resources can be transferred between your own cities or sent to Alliance
       members.
       
    Embassy
    -------
    The Embassy allows you to join or create alliances, and also houses 
    reinforcing armies from your allies.
       
       Alliances
       ---------
       Alliances play an important role in Kingdoms of Middle-earth. Join an
       Alliance to share resources, coordinate attacks, socialize, and share tips
       and tricks on how to play more successfully. Protect yourself from the
       perils of Middled-earth by joining an Alliance today!
       
       Join
       ----
       To join an Alliance, simply tap on the Alliance tab and then on the Find
       an Alliance button. You'll see all Alliances listed in order of Might. You
       will see a red dot with a White "X" and a Green Dot with a white checkmark
       next to some of the Alliances names. They are used to help indicate if 
       you meet the Alliances set requirements to join or not. The red dot with
       the "X" indicates that you cannot join that teams alliance. You need to
       search for ones with a green dot and a Checkmark next to the name to
       qualify. Or simply have an alliance send you a request by posting a
       message in the Global Chat room. Tap the envelope icon to send a request
       to join. You will be notified via in-game messages if you are accepted
       into an Alliance.
       
       Create an Alliance
       ------------------
       You may want to create your own alliance, become Regent and climb up the
       Alliance rankings by acquiring new members and working with them to defeat
       others!
       
       Reinforcements
       --------------
       You can only reinforce and be reinforced by players from your own
       alliance. You can receive a number of reinforcing armies up to the level 
       of your Embassy. In other words, if you have a Level 5 Embassy, you can 
       receive five reinforcing armies, each with an unlimited number of troops.
       Remember, all troops reinforcing your city will consume Food.
       
       Reports
       -------
       As a member of an Alliance, you can view all the scout and march reports
       for every member in that alliance. However, if a player has deleted a
       march report in their own Reports folder, it will also be deleted in the
       Alliance Reports folder.
       
       Alliance Chat
       -------------
       One of the biggest advantages of being a member of an Alliance is the 
       ability to socialize and coordinate with your fellow Alliance members.
       To view alliance chat, tap on the chat bart and then the Alliance tab
       on the top.
       
       Alliance Messaging
       ------------------
       Alliance officers can send mass messages to all Alliance members by
       tapping Alliance and then the Message Everyone button on the Info tab.
       
       Diplomacy
       ---------
       Alliance officers can set diplomacy for other alliances in the world.
       The three options for diplomacy are: Hostile, Friendly, and Neutral.
       
       All Freindly settings must be reciprocated. In other words, if 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
       reciprocation.
       
    Tavern
    ------
    A cup of ale before leaving increases the speed of travel between your cities
    and to allied cities. Upgrade your Tavern to reduce Travel times further.
       
       The Tavern increases your troops' march speed between your cities and your
       allies' cities. This means a it takes them less time to transport
       resources, reinforce your allies, or be reassigned to another city. The
       more you upgrade the Tavern, the faster they will march.
       
    Watch Tower
    -----------
    The Watch Tower detects incoming attcks and prevents enemies from scouting
    your city. Upgrade to gain more detailed information.
    
       Levels
       ------
       You will be provided information on incoming attacks based on the level of
       your Watch Tower:
          Level 1: Warns you of an impending attack
          Level 2: Increases your scouting efficiency
          Level 3: Tells you the time until arrival of an impending attack
          Level 4: Tells you the Level and alliance of the player attacking you
          Level 5: Tells you the estimated number of troops involved in the
                   attack.
          Level 6: Tells you the troop types involved in the attack
          Level 7: Tells you the estimated number of each troop type involved in
                   the attack
          Level 8: Tells you the exact number of each troop type involved in the
                   attack
          Level 9: Tells you the level of the Hero leading the attack
          Level 10: Tells you the exact Research levels of the player sending the
                    attack.
       
       Incoming Attack
       ---------------
       If you are in the game and have incoming attack on any of your cities or
       Wilds, you will be notified by a red icon with crossed swords at the top
       left of the game window.
       
       To see the details of an incoming attack, tap on the icon, or go to your
       watch Tower and select the Incoming Attacks tab.
       
       On the screen that appears, tap the ">" button to see the details of a 
       specific attack. The information provided will be based on the level of
       your Watch Tower.
       
       If an attack is targeting an occupied Wild, information provided is based
       on the Watch Tower level of the city that occupies that wild.
       
       Concealing Mists
       ----------------
       If you want to prevent enemies from scouting you, you could buy the
       Concealing Mists item in the Watch Tower. This item prevents scouting for
       24 hours.
       
    City Wall
    ---------
    The walls protect your city and allow you to build defensive units.
       
       Wall Defenses
       -------------
       Your City Wall can be strengthened with defensive units. Building up your
       Wall Defenses is a good way to defend your city, boost your Power, and
       Intimidate other players.
       
       Wall Defenses are not troops, but they do have their own Might Values.
       Wall Defenses cannot be set to 'Hide' or 'Defend' - they are always 
       active. They can be destroyed by attacking troops.
       
       Like regular troops, Wall defenses are divided into three classes:
          *vs. Foot (Traps)
          *vs. Mounted (Caltrops)
          *vs. Ranged (Defense Crossbows, Defensive Trebuchets)
       
       **More information about Wall Defenses can be found in the Building Troops
       and City Defenses section of this walkthrough. If not found in the current
       version of this document, it may be added in a later update.
       
    Home
    ----
    Homes increase your Population, enabling you to build larger armies and
    better resource buildings.
       
       Population
       ----------
       Population consits of the people in your City.
       
       Building Homes raises the city's Population Limit. The happier the
       Population, the closer the Population value will come to the Population
       limit.
       
       You can boost your Population temporarily by using the Open Gates item.
       
       Idle Population is the number of people available to put to work in Fields
       and to train for Troops. Idle Population still contributes to tax revenue.
       
    Barracks
    --------
    Use the Barracks to train troops. Upgrade Barracks to unlock new units. Build
    more Barracks to train troops faster.
       
       Troops
       ------
       Your troops are used to:
          * Protect your city from attack;
          * Attack other players;
          * Conquer Wilds:
          * Attack Goblin Camps.
       
       Each troop type has a Might value that contributes to your overall Might 
       score. Increase your Might to show others you are the strongest leader in
       Middle-earth!
       
       Unit Types and Modifiers:
       -------------------------
       Remember, there are 4 different types of Troops per Tier. There are 4 
       distinct classes of units: Foot, Ranged, Mounted, and Supply. Each class
       is divided into three tiers:
          - Foot: [Dawrf Troops] (Dwarven Militia, Dwarf Warriors, Battering
                                  Rams)
                  [Elven Troops] (Elven Militia, Elven Warriors, Battering Rams)
       
          - Ranged: [Dwarf Troops] (Axe Throwers, Siege Crossbows, Catapults)
                    [Elven Troops] (Archers, Scorpions, Ents)
       
          - Mounted: [Dwarf Troops] (Mounted Dwarves, Boar Riders, Heavy Boar
                                     Riders)
                     [Elven Troops] (Mounted Elves, Mounted Hunters, Mounted
                                     Galadhrim)
       
          - Supply: [All Factions] (Porters, Supply Carts, Supply Wagons)
       
       Supply troops have no attacking power; Ranged troops have bonus against
       Foot troops; Foot troops have bonus against Mounted Troops; Mounted troops
       have bonus agaisnt Ranged troops.
       
       Higher-tier troops will defeat lower-tier troops even if they are weak
       against the opposing troop class.
       
       Troop Statistics
       ----------------
       Each unit in the game has statistics that reflect its strength.
       
       Statistics for regular units can be viewed by going to the Barracks,
       selecting 'Train Troops' and tapping the troop type. Statistics for Wall 
       Defenses can be viewed by going to the wall and selecting 'Train Defenses'
       followed by the defense type.
       
       Troop statistics are:
          Attack: How much damage the unit deals in battle;
          Life: How much damage the unit can absorb before it is destroyed;
          Speed: How quickly the unit can march on the map;
          Load: How much loot (Gold or resources) the unit can carry.
       
       Heroes and Research
       -------------------
       The level of your heroes and research can also impact the outcome of a
       battle. Specifically, the higher the level of the Hero assigned to march,
       and the level of your Horned Blades and Vigor research, the better your 
       chance of victory.
       
       Hide Troop option
       -----------------
       The Hide Troop feature is located inside your keep. Hidden troops cannot
       fight to defend your city, but they cannot be killed by attackers either.
       
       Defending troops can significantly increase your defensive capabilities,
       but they can be destroyed by a superior attacker. The troops you lose
       might be more valuable than the resssources that can be looted.
       
       **The Life, and Attacks of the different troops will be added in a later
         update. Sorry for this inconveniance.
       
    Muster Field                                                                 
    ------------                                                                 
    The Muster field lets you send attacks, reinforce allies, and transport      
    resources between your cities and to your allies.                            
                                                                                 
       Marches (9906-e4Gr)                                                       
       -------                                                                   
       Troops moving across the Map are called Marches. There are three types of 
       Marches: Attack, Reinforce, and Transport. The level of your Muster Field 
       determines how many Marches you can send at a time, and how many troops   
       can be sent on a single march.                                            
                                                                                 
       Attack: You can attack Wilds, Goblin Camps, and the cities of other
       Players. Each attack must be led by a Hero.
       
       Reinforce: You can reinforce wilds that you own, and the cities of 
       Alliance members. Remember, reinforcing troops will consume Food resource
       when in allied cities. The level of a city's Embassy determines how many  
       armies can reinforce that city.
       
       Transport: You can move resources between your cities orsend them to
       Alliance members as gifts. Transport marches do not need to be led by a
       Hero.
       
       Scouting
       --------
       Scouting gives you vital information about locations on the Map. Scouting
       is free, but you can are limited to launching one Scout at a time and it
       does take time for information to be collected. Research higher levels of
       Far Seeing to yield more information with each Scout.
       
       The Map
       -------
       The Map is used to attack and conquer Wilds, loot Goblin Camps, attack 
       enemies, and help friends.
       
       Using the Map: Swipe your finger to move around the Map. Tap on an 
       individual tile to bring up that tile's details, and tap the tile again to
       close the details pop-up. Tap with two fingers to toggle tile level
       information on and off. The buttons at the top of the screen allow you to
       (?from left): Center the map on your city; open your saved bookmarks; and
       jump to specific map coordinates.
       
       There are three types of map tiles on the World map: Wilds, Goblin Camps,
       and Cities.
       
       Conquering Wilds helps boost your resource production by 5% x level.
       Different Wilds boost different resources; Grasslands and Lakes boost Food
       production, while Forests, Hills, and Mountains boost Wood, Stone, and Ore
       respectively. To conquer a Wild, you must attack it and win. You can own a
       number of Wilds equal to the level of your Keep. You can abandon a Wild by
       going to your Keep and selecting the Conquests tab.
       
       Goblin Camps owe their allegiance to the great Goblin. Attack them and 
       return home with valuable resources! Higher level Goblin Camps are harder
       to beat, but also hold more resources. You cannot conquer a Goblin Camp.
       
       Cities are owned by other players. Cities belonging to members of your
       Alliance are marked with a blue flag. Those belonging to members of 
       hostile alliances show a red flag.
       
       Combat
       ------
       Train troops and use them to attack Wilds, Goblin Camps, and other
       players' cities. Conquering Wilds can help boost your resource production,
       while attacking Goblin Camps and other players can yield valuable loot.
       
       Attack and Scout
       ----------------
       How to send an attack:
          1. Find your target in the map view
          2. Tap on that tile
          3. Tap 'Attack'
          4. Choose a Hero to lead the March
          5. Choose troop types and numbers
          6. Buy and/or use Combat boost items as desired
          7. Tap 'Attack'
          8. Tap 'Speed Up' or 'Instant Finish March', or wait for your troops to
             reach the target
          9. After the battle is done, you will receive a report under
             Mail -> Report.
       
       You may also choose to scout a target before attacking to determine its 
       strength. Scout reports are sent to your Mail, under Reports. Remember, 
       you can gather information by researching higher levels of Far Seeing.
       
    Academy
    -------
    The Academy allows you to research new technologies to make your city more
    efficient and your armies more powerful.
       
       Research
       --------
       You can research technologies in your Academy. Research can increase
       resource production, speed up building and training, make your troops more
       effective in combat, and more.
       
    Forge
    -----
    The Forge allows you to train better units. Upgrade to unlock more advanced 
    troops.
       
    Armory
    ------
    The Armory allows you to build advanced weapons. Upgrade it to unlock more
    powerful units.
       
    Great Hall
    ----------
    The Great Hall is used to recruit Heroes and assign them to specilist roles
    which help your city grow. Upgrade to appoint more Heroes.
       
       **Information regarding the Heroes and the appropriate level of your Great
       Hall can be found in the Attack and Defending section of this Walkthrough.
       
       Heroes
       ------
       Heroes lead your armies into battle and give valuable boosts to your
       troops and city. To recruit more Heroes, upgrade your Great Hall. Heroes 
       earn experience points (needed to level up) from battle and via certain
       combat items available from the shop.
       
       You can also assign your Heroes to a role in your city. As long as a Hero
       is assigned to a role, your city receives bonuses in proportion to the
       Hero's level. Heroes assigned to a role need a salary in Gold and are not
       available for marches.
       
       **I would recommend that you buy and use a Hobbit Building Crew and level
       up your Great Halls to level 10. With a Level 10 Great Hall, you will be
       able to level up your Heroes over Level 180 up to level 215. Level 215 is
       the Highest a Hero can be leveled up to.
       
    Stables
    -------
    The Stables are required to build mounted units. Upgrade to unlock more
    units.
       
    Sage's Tower
    ------------
    The Sage's Tower holds Relics. Find Relics by attacking Goblin Camps. Finish
    Relic sets to earn special items. 
       
       **A sage's Tower can only be build in your main City. Also, once a Sage's
       Tower has been built, it can not be destroyed or deconstructed.
       
       The Sage's Tower stores your Relics and lets you combine them into useful
       items such as Second City Deeds. Upgrading your Sage's Tower increases 
       your chance of discovering Relics when you attack Goblin Camps.
       
    Farm
    ----
    Farms provide Food to sustain your population and feed your workers and
    troops. Higher-level Farms produce more Food.
       
       Resources
       ---------
       Resources are used to upgrade buildings, build troops and complete
       Research. There are five main resources: Food, Wood, Stone, Ore, and Gold.
       
       Food, Wood, Stone, and Ore are produced by buildings in your Fields.
       Resource production can be increased by:
          *Building more Field plots;
          * Conquering Wilds;
          * Appointing a Hero to the Production position;
          * Completing appropriate research;
          * Using items that boost production.
       
       All resources except Gold can be protected by your Vault. The higher your
       Vault's level, the more resources it can protect.
       
       Gold is produced by taxing your Population. You can adjust your tax rate 
       in your Keep. Building and upgrading Homes can increase tax revenue by
       raising population.
       
       Resources can be transfered between your own cities or sent to Alliance
       members.

    troops.

    view screens. There will also be a legend associated with the image.
       
       In the City and Field view section of your screen, the main focus
       will be concentrated on building and upgrading your Buildings, 
       Researching Technologies, and Training Troops. On these two screens
       you will also be noticified about incoming attacks. The incoming
       attacks will notify you with a [X] icon in the top left side of
       the city/field view.

    ----------
    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 Goblin Camps.

    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 Academy and 
    the necessary level 10 buildings that are required to perform said research.

    Moon Rune is a special event that allows ou to earn items as well as         
    parchement. the Moon Rune feature is a more advanced game of chance. This can
    be plaed several times a day, that is of course, if you manage to be patient 
    with the wait time between each cycle. To get a chance to play, the moon must
    be a Full Moon. This can take anwhere between 15 minutes to 2-3 hours before 
    the Moon becomes full.
    For the moment nothing much is known about the Moon Rune feature.
    See later updates for more details.                                          
                                                                                 
    Troops and Wall Defenses                                      [Walk3.11]-----
    ------------------------
    You will need to train troops to be able to attack Goblin Camps, other 
    players and conquer Wilds. They are also needed to transport resources and
    reinforce your cities and those of your allies. Wall defenses are needed to
    fend off some of those nasty attackers.
       
       Wall Defenses
       -------------
       The following is a list of Wall Defenses and the requirements needed to
       build/ train them.
       
       To train Wall Defenses, tap on your City's Wall, then tap on the 'Train
       Defenses' tab, then tap on the Defense of your choice.
       
       I will be providing the wall defenses with 2 names and 2 descriptions
       where applicable. One will be the Dawrven name and description, while the
       other will be Elvish. Each Description will be marked with a "[D]" and a
       "E" to indicate the faction. The default names are all Dwarven. The ones
       next to them will be Elvish.
       
       There are three different Tiers of Wall Defenses that can be trained, and
       they are:
          * [Tier 1] Traps, Caltrops, and Crossbows
          * [Tier 2] Defensive Trebuchets, Rock Droppers, and Dragon's Teeth
          * [Tier 3] Boiling Lead, Chain Webs, and Fire Throwers
       
    Here I will place all the Wall Defenses into two columns, one for Elvish de- 
    fenses and the other for Dwarven Defenses. If you have been following this   
    walkthrough very closely, then you will notice that the might of a single    
    wall defense is less than what it was before v2.0.0 of this walkthrough. This
    is one of Kabam's bright ideas. They start you off powerful then weaken you. 
                                                                                 
            Dwarven Defenses                      Elvish Defenses

       In this section, I will be highliting the resource and population         
       requirements needed to train each Tier of troops. I will also be providing
       the different names and descriptions associated with each Faction troop.

                                    ------------                                 
       Basic Troops are primary troop units that are easy to unlock and to use.  
       Compared to Advanced Troop Units, these ones are the best way to gain     
       might. Please pay close attention to the Faction of the Troops that you   
       wish to train, depending on the your Faction, will depend on how much res 
       you will need to train that troop type. The amount of Resources needed to 
       train one Elvish Faction troop is not the same as that of a Dwarven Troop

    There are currently 3 Tiers of Troops that you can train. Each Tier surpasses
    the previous in many advantages. There is also a fourth set of Tier Troops.  
    This fourth tier is currently only available through events and through 
    Mystery Chests sets. You will be able to soon train that fourth set of tier
    troops, however this process requires Version 8.0.0 of the game and you must
    meet certain qualifications, see Runecrafting below. To view your Tier 4
    Troops, you must visit your Muster Field. For every 1 Tier 4 Troop you have,
    you will gain 28 might. The following are stats for every Tier 4 Troops that 
    can be obtained in the game. In the Barracks and in the game, Tier 4 Troops  
    are considered as Advanced Troop Units.

      Non-trainable troops are troops units that currently cannot be trained in  
      normal game-play, such as T5 and Tactical Troops. The following section    
      will cover the stats of these two troop units.

                           ----------------------------------                    
    Tier 5 Troops are the highest level of Tier Troops that can be found in the  
    game. Not much information can be found about these troops since you cannot  
    train them yet or maybe ever in the barracks. When new information arises    
    about these new powerful troops, you can bet that I will be the first to     
    bring them to your attention. The following is a list of all the Tier 5      
    Troops for both the Elvish and Dwarven factions.

      Tactical Troops differ from Regular and Advanced Troop Units. These Units  
      can help aid you in defeating Alliance Bosses in one attack, and can offer 
      your troops defense and attack buff increases when backed by your Basic and
      Advanced Units. Tactical Troops also carry more Might than any other Troop 
      type offered in the Game. Please see section below for all Tactical Troop  
      Unit Stats.

    Great Hall and Heroes                                         [Walk3.12]-----
    ---------------------
    Here I will be explaining what Heroes are as well as items that you can buy
    and receive from events that are needed to help them gain experience and 
    level up.
       
       Requirements: Player Level 3
       
    A hero is the person who will lead your troops into battle. A Hero can be 
    assigned to help with the resource production, building times, training times
    and research speed. A hero is one of the most used and important character in
    The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth. Sending your Hero into battle will 
    allow him to gain experience, other than using items. When using battle to
    level up your Hero's experience, he will gain them like so:
       
       * By being successful in battle, your hero will earn 20 points at a time.
       * By failing in battle, your hero will only gain 10 exp points.
       
    Great Halls support 20 levels of experience per one level for your Great
    Hall. It is possible to have a higher Hero than your Great Hall supports if
    you used a training item to increase their experience.
       
    Here is a list nof items that you can buy or win through an event that will
    help level up your hero's level and his experiance.
                                                                         .------.

    The Elven games include Galadriel's Gift and Tauriel's Circle of Fate. Both  
    these games work together to bring you even more better and Rare prizes.

    Gollum's Riddle is a game of chance. Everyday at starting at 0:00 Hobbit GT,
    you will receive a free Gollum's token. Use it to receive a prize. To play
    the 'classic' Gollum's Riddle, you will require 1 Gollum'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 Gollum's Riddle game, there is a 1 in 100,000
    chance of winning troop sets. The other Chance game is Gollum's 'Premium'
    Riddle. In this Premium game, you will need a total of 6 Gollum Tokens to 
    receive one play. However, in the Premium chance game, you can win better 
    prizes, like a Hobbit Building Crew, Troops, Second City Deeds, and much
    more. The following is a text-view screenshot of the Gollum's Riddle chance
    game.

    ---------------------
    There is a new feature to this game. It gives you the current date on a 
    calendar, but it also gives you the chance to click on todays date. By 
    clicking on todays date, this is called Logging in. By loging in, you can
    earn prizes. The more you log-in, the better the prizes you will recieve. To
    login, click on the calendar, then on the brown box found on todays current
    date. If you have loged in successfully, a blue square will appear with the
    logo of your faction in the middle of todays box.
       
    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://hobbit.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 "Serach". If all goes well, youy 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 checdk 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 Chatrooms                                                 [walk3.18]-----
    -------------                                                                
    There exists currently three types of Chatrooms in the game, one is known as 
    'Global' another as 'Alliance' and one as "Private". 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 communicate with players in realtime who belong to your        
    alliance and the last one is for communicating with other players via        
    whispering. 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.                                                     
                                                                                 
       Different Chatrooms are for different purposes.                           
       -----------------------------------------------                           
       The following is a list all all the different Chatrooms found within the  
       game and what each of their purpose is.                                   
                                                                                 
       Global Chat                                                               
       -----------                                                               
       In Global chat, you can communicate with all players from around the globe
       even if they are not part of your alliance.

       There are two seperate Sub-chatrooms found under the Alliance tab. These  
       are "Member" and "Officer".

          This chat room is designed for communicating with your entire alliance 
          crew. There are no exceptions to this room.

          This is a special chat room used by Regents, Vice Regents and Officers 
          to communicate with one another to be able to strategize attacks,      
          defenses and other war maneuvers. No one underneath the rank of Officer
          have access to this room.

       This room is designed for only one purpose... To communicate with other   
       players via Whispering. Whispering with another player is a way of        
       communicating without people being able to see what you two are talking   
       about.

    Quests                                                        [walk3.19]-----

    In the new Version of The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth game, the 
    developpers at Kabam, Inc. have added a new subsection to the Quests tab.
    This new subsection is known as Campaign Mode. Since Campaign Mode is new and
    not yet available in all worlds, not much is known yet. However I will start
    adding the topic to this walkthrough  but will add more information to it's
    category later on when it has been released to all worlds. Now on to the 
    Quests.
    
    When you first start the game, you will need to complete some quests. To view
    the quests that you have yet to complete or have already completed, simplt
    tap on the 'Quests' tab at the bottom of the screen. During most of your
    game-play time, you will be completing quests. By completing certain tasks,
    you can receive many great and useful rewards. So always check your Quests
    screen often. The following is a list of all the tasks you must complete 
    during the beginnig of your adventures.           .----------------..-------.

    -------
    Mithril is one of the most essential requirements to properly succeed in the
    game. However, Mithril can be extremly costly. The use of Mithril can be
    very specific, for example: If you want to get the Second City Deed but you
    don't wanna fight for it, you can purchase Mithril in order to purchase the
    deed. Mithil has may uses. The following chart indicates how much money you
    will need to spend to recieve a certain number of Mithril. By purchasing
    Mithril, you also receive a chance to win a free Prosperity chest. But we
    will discuss that in a later update.                 .------------..--------.

       In Version 6.0.0 and later of The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth game,
       Kabam, Inc. has added a new way to earn Mithril. This new technique
       involves completing special offers. Sometimes you will need to make some
       purchases to complete these offers and other times they are free. Last 
       month, in the month of July, Kabam, Inc. had added a special deal to gain
       300 Free Mithril to all players who had successfully logged in for 30 days
       via the Log-In Calendar (see walk3.15 for more details).

    Permanent Alliance Buffs are functional as long as they are unloacked and

    activated.

    Sage's Tower                                                  [walk3.22]-----
    ------------
    The Sage's Tower is only available to build in your First City. The Sage's 
    Tower is needed to collect City Deed Relics, and Artifacts needed to progress
    in completing the game. Artifacts have just been released recently and are 
    only available by completing tasks in Campaign Mode, however you can only
    currently collect City Deed Relics, which are needed to complete a City Deed
    to be able to build a new city, for only three cities at the moment. Since 
    the Artifacts are new and not yet available in all Worlds, I will only be
    adding what is currently known on this topic in this version of the walk-
    through. I will add more data on this topic once it has been made availble in
    all worlds, in a later update.
    
    Relic Hunting
    -------------
    Relics are one of the most important items that you need in order to obtain a
    new city Deed. First, you will need to collect a total of 100 in order to 
    claim a new City Deed. There are three ways of collecting these relics, the
    first is to attack Goblin Camps Level 6-10 (see Goblin Camp Guide for futher
    details about defeating them) then the second is to attack a player's city
    and claim his/her relics, then there is the secret way, which involves
    attacking a player's Wilds. You will be notified in your reports if you 
    obtain a relic from the first two, but you will not know if you get one from 
    the Wilds. To claim Relics, you must have at least a Level 1 or higher Sage's
    Tower. Sage's Towers allow you to obtain and hold relics. It is important
    that you use your First City to go Relic hunting, as no other cities will 
    allow you to access relics. If you are hunting relics to build your Second
    City, you will only obtrain Second City Relics from Goblin Camps until you
    claim a Second City Deed. Once you have claimed a Second City Deed, your
    Sage's Tower will start a new programming in your city so the next time you
    go to hunt for relics, you will then start to obtain Third City Relics in 
    place of Second City Relics. You must also have a Second City built before
    you can start or claim a Third City Deed.
    
       City Deeds
       ----------
       City Deeds are a crucial and most important key needed to expand your
       kingdom. They are needed to create additional cities. By creating new
       cities, you can train more troops faster and always have plenty of
       resources available at your disposal. Currently, there are three cities
       available in total to be constructed. To obtain these deeds, please visit
       the shop and purchase them at 225 Mithril or earn them by collecting 
       relics using your Sage's Tower. You can also take your chances at wining
       a Second City Deed from Gollum's Riddle Chance game.
    
       Artifacts
       ---------
       Artifacts are only obtainable via the Campaign Mode. Beat Dungeons and 
       Caves to earn some Artifacts. There is a current total of 10 artifacts to
       obtain. Artifacts are needed to permanently increase your City's Attack 
       and Defense stats. The Higher the stats the better. I will be including a
       brief description for each set of artifacts in the chart below. Artifacts
       are created by gathering Precious Metals and Gems.

    Before you can start building a new City that will be under your Domain, you
    must first meet the proper requirements. These requirements are in place to
    make proper assurance that you are fully ready to handle a new City. The 
    requirements are very simple, but some of the tasks that have to be completed
    aren't so easy to accomplish. To build a new city, please refer yourself to
    the charts below. For now, all there are only Two additional cities available
    to be built, giving you up to three cities.
                                          .------------..--------------..-------.

       '------------------------------------------------------------------------'
        | The Relics can only be obtained by attacking Goblin Camps Level 6    |
        | through level 10. You will be required to collect 100 Relics to be   |
        | able to Collect the Second City Deed. For more information about     |
        | Relics, please refer yourself to the Relics Section of this guide.   |
        | You will need to be Player Level 7 to be able to create the 2nd City.|
        | Also, this is not a requirement, but rather a suggestion, it would be|
        | wise to be in an Alliance if you wish to be successfull with a new   |
        | city.                                                                |

        | You can buy the Third City Deed from the Shop for only 225 Mithril.  |
        | You will need to have a Second City under your  control in order to  |

    Third City                                                    [walk3.24]-----
    ----------
    Having 2 cities may be fun, but having a Third is a blast. The game refers 
    the Third City as a 'Storm City'. Don't ask me why, it just does. The Third
    City is much more different than the first two. This new city has even more
    field plots, which can only be unlocked when your Keep reaches level 5 and 
    Level 10. It also has a few more open and locked house/building plots than 
    the previous cities. Try to use these new plots to make a better city, one
    that will have everyone else in envy.
       
    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 Supply Wagons. 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 Hero to lead the attack. The higher the level of the Hero, 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 Hero, 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 Muster Field. It is not 
    recommended that you use the Muster Field 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 Muster Field, 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 hero 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 ressources to other cities. You can also use these techniques to
    attack and conquer Wilds and Goblin Camps. Do not attack Bogs as they cannot
    be attacked in the first place.
      
    RuneCrafting                                                  [Walk3.26]-----
    ------------                                                                 
    RuneCrafting is a way to increase a certain's building level higher than     
    level 10. Once a building has been RuneCrafted, it becomes a *1 level or     
    higher. If you RuneCraft a building, you can unlock many new features in the 
    game, like being able to train Tier 4 Troops, or increased Vault protection  
    limit. These features are very helpful, so I strongly recommend RuneCrafting 
    a building when the opportunity arises. To RuneCraft a building, you will    
    need to meet certain qualifications. Here is a sample of the qualifications  
    you need to meet to be able to RuneCraft a building. You will need a Lv 10   
    building, some Forge Runes, some RuneCraft building requirements require a   
    level *1 buiding to be able to RuneCraft another building. I will include a  
    list of all buildings that can be RuneCrafted in a later update of this      
    document. Forge Runes can be obtained through special Events in the Shop and 
    can be found by completing Campain Mode with a 1:500 ratio through Campaign  
    mode. See Quests: Campaing Mode section of this document for further details.
    RuneCrafting is now available in all three cities.

    There are few Heroes among our Kingdom that have been written into Middle-   
    earth's Book of Legends. These Legendary Heroes are ready to be enlisted in  
    your Cities and will help you march across the Kingdoms of Middle-earth in   
    greater Tactical numbers.                                                    
                                                                                 
    The Book of Legends Radagast I Item is available for trade in the Sage Tower 
    under the Relics tab. Collect Legendary Pages from a selective boss levels on
    the Clearing the High Pass and Avenging Moria Maps. Legendary Pages are also 
    available as prizes in Tournaments and special Events.                       
                                                                                 
    Upgrade your Radagast to Legendary I and take over the Middle-earth Map.     
    Legendary Heroes can also upgrade powerful buffs when equipped with their own
    Legendary Gear.                                                              
                                                                                 
    Only one Book of Legends can be applied per Kingdom, so make sure to save    
    your remaining Legendary Pages for the other upcoming Legendary Heroes.      
                                                                                 
    Food Production and Upkeep                                    [walk3.28]-----
    --------------------------
    Topic will be introduced in update version 1.4.0 of this document. A brief 
    introduction to this topic will be listed below.
    
    Food is the most needed resource within the game. It is needed to build, to
    train, to research, to share, and much more. However, you cannot ever have
    enough of it. But if you want to train lots of troops, you'd better know how
    to keep up with the production and upkeep rates so u don't end up in a 
    position of not being able to cultivate any. It is highly recommended that 
    you have 1 City to store all of your troops in, and one designated specially
    for producing lots of Food. This way u will never run out. To have a HIGH
    production rate of food, it will be necessary to conquer 9 or 10 Level 10
    Grasslands or Lakes. It would also help to assign a high level Hero to the
    "Production" position as to increase your Resource production by the level of
    your Hero tenfold. It would also be wise to have about 20 Farms each of level
    9 or higher to help boost up the production rate. Also, try to only keep 
    Carts and/or Wagons so as to be able to transport your Food to your allies
    and your other cities. Be sure to follow these tips to be a successfull Troop
    builder.
    
    Fourth City                                                   [Walk3.29]-----
    -----------                                                                  
    This Wilderness City is currently not available outside of in-game events. We
    will add more information about this FINAL CITY after it has been made availa
    ble to all players. Please stay tuned for more details.                      
                                                                                 
    To obtain a fourth city you will need to have obtained a third city first,   
    also a Fourth City deed, which can be obtained in the Chest section of the   
    shop at 299 Mithril or be obtained by collecting 100 relics via Goblin Camps,
     be at Player Level 15 or higer, and have a conquered plain.                 
                                                                                 
    A fourth City, like the Third City, has more building and field Polts than   
    the first two sities. Below is a text rendering image of what a Fourth City  
    Buildings and Field Plots look like in the game. I am providing you with     
    these City Plots views so you can try to figure out how you will build your  
    new city and where you're going to place certain buildings. Enjoy.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)                             [walk3.30]-----
    ---------------------------------
    Here is a quick list of Questions that are the most Frequently asked about
    the game. 
       
       This first question was asked from me to the Development team over at
       Kabam Studios.
       
    Q: Why did my troops dissapear and My heroi not gain any experiance?
       
       A: Thank you for taking the time to write in. It appears there are two
          seperate issues explained here. First, there is the Hero which seems
          not to have gained experience from the attack. For this, please check
          your Great Hall level in the city your Hero resides and make sure it is
          high enough level to support gaining experience for your Hero. Great
          Halls support 20 levels of experience per one level for your Great
          Hall. It is possible to have a higher Hero than your Great Hall
          supports if you used a training item to increase their experience.
       
          In regards to your missing Troops, sometimes there is a delay when 
          training or waiting for Troops to return home from a March. It seems 
          they wander off aimlesslyu to the local tavern and tip back a few more
          than they should. I have been told by the development team that this
          should only be a temporary issue, meaning your Troops should eventually
          return, but have also heard from players claiming they had not received
          them back until days later.
       
          Also, some players have reported that refreshing' the app resolves this
          issue and whips your missing Troops back into shape. To refresh the
          app, simply press the 'Home' button on your Apple device to exit the
          app, then doubke-press it again to bring up the list of apps you have 
          open. Hold The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth app until it starts to
          jiggle and then tap the little 'minus' icon that appears. Then tap
          onThe Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth to complete the process!
       
          We know you worked hard to train these Troops and we are working on
          improving this experience as soon as possible.
          
          Regards,
          Kim

    Q: Why does it say in the table of contents and show in the guide, 'walk3.20'
       then 'walk3.22'? Where is 'walk3.21' ? Is it missing? I see 'walk3.26' and
       then 'walk3.30', but I don't see 'walk3.27'-'walk3.29'. Where are they?
       
       A: This indicates a section of the guide that either has not yet been
          created, so a slot has been left open for a future topic, or because
          the topic that was there in a previous update has either been moved to
          a new location in the guide, or it has been removed from the guide
          entirely. If a topic has been removed, don't worry, a new topic will 
          be added in its place in a future update.
       
    Q: I read your game walkthrough and you wrote: "Resources can be transfered
       between your own cities"
       
       I have been able to send and receive resources to and from members of my
       alliance, but I have never been able to send or receive resources from my
       own cities to each other... it just gives me the error message "Where ?
       That destination seems wrong. Please Check"
       
       Any ideas?
       
       I have tried asking Kabam, rebooting and discarding and reloading the
       game, building my other cities up... do I need to make an alliance with my
       own cities to do this ? 
       
       Your help would be greatly appreciated as you seem to have expertise in 
       this game.
       
       Thanks in advance.
       Steve
       
       A: You would need to be in an alliance, yes. But both of your Cities have
          to be have a blue flag next to them.
       
          Q: you mean, both of my cities have to be in the same alliance? or they
             just need to be in 'an' alliance? or they have to be in an alliance
             with each other only?
             essentially, what i think you're saying is for anyone to send 
             resources anywhere, they must be in an alliance... a random city can
             not just make a donation to another random city... even if i started
             (own) both cities right?
       
             A: They don't have to be in the same alliance, but they do have to
                be in an alliance whose diplomacy is set as Friendly with yours.
                You cannot however just send resources to any city. They must be
                in an alliance that is marked by a blue flag. To send the re-
                sources use your Muster Field and place the coordinates to your
                destination. Make sure it's set to transport and not attack.
       
                Q: Is it possible to join more than one alliance?
                   
                   A: No, you are only allowed to be in one alliance at a time,
                      per account, no matter how many cities you may own.
                      
                      Q: Can you tranfer items, gold and resources between
                         different worlds?
         
                         A: No. The only thing that can be tranfered between
                            different worlds is Mithril.
       
    The Leaderboard                                               [walk3.31]-----
    ---------------
    The leaderboard is the official board that collects and reveals the total
    mights accumulated, troops killed and ranks the players according to their
    current might total. This feature can come in very handy. To access the
    Leaderboard, simply scroll your main menu, found at the bottom of the screen
    (shown below) scroll that to the left, and click on 'Ranks'.

    '----------------------------------------'                      figure 3.31a
       
    I will be dividing the Leaderboard information into three sections: Might
    Leaderboard, Might Gained Leaderboard, and Troops Killed Leaderboard.
       
       Might Leaderboard
       -----------------
       The Might Leaderboard ranks all players in the World according to their
       Might. The Might Leaderboard refreshes daily, and the time of last update
       can be found on the Might Leaderboard window.
       
       Might is gained by training troops and Wall Defenses, and using bundled
       Troops items. Losing Troops in combat will reduce your Might.
       
       Maximize your Might to have your name recorded in the annals of Middle-
       earth!
       
       Might Gained Leaderboard
       ------------------------
       The Might Gained Leaderboard ranks players according to their might gained
       gained on a weekly basis. The current rankings are updated daily under
       the 'This Week' tab. Might is gained by training troops, training Wall
       Defenses, and using bundled troops items. Your Might Gained will not
       decrease due to troop losses from combat.
       
       You may view previous champions of the Might Gained Leaderboard from the
       'All Time' and 'Weekly' rankings.
       
       Troops Killed Leaderboard
       -------------------------
       The Troops Killed Leaderboard ranks players on a weekly basis according to
       the total Might of the enemy players' troops killed. Both attacks and 
       defensive battles are taken into account. Rankings are updated daily under
       the 'This Week' tab.
       
    City Guardian and Buffs                                       [Walk3.32]-----
    -----------------------                                                      
    One of the best way to increase your Attack, Life, Defense and Resource Buffs
    is to upgrade your City Guardian using Artifacts, Swift Stones and Gatherers 
    Stones. Your City Guardian can boost your armies' Life and Attack,Troop Trai-
    ning ratings, and increases Resource Collection. Get Artifacts by Crafting   
    Precious Metals and Gems, which can be obtained through Campaign Mode, using 
    your Sage's Tower. Gatherers Stones can be obtained by defeating Alliance    
    Bosses.                                                                      
                                                                                 
       Earn Permanent Life, Attack and Other Buffs                               
       -------------------------------------------                               
       Use Artifacts crafted in your Sage's Tower to upgrade your City Guardian's
       Life and Attack, increase Training speeds and increase Resource collection
       Artifacts are crafted frfom rare Gems and Precious Metals discovered in   
       Campaign battles. These buffs will apply to all troops marching from or   
       defending this city.                                                      
                                                                                 
                                                                                 
    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

    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 itr 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 Mithril, free of charge.

    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.

                                                           What is Campaign Mode?
                                                           ----------------------
    Campaign mode is a new addition, featured in Version 7.0.0+ of the game, and 
    it is needed to unlock many cool new items and features found in this game.  
    When playing campaing mode for the first time, the experiance is very similar
    to that of attacking Goblin Camps. Here you must defeat all the Goblins and  
    their armies to unlock artifacts, which are needed to permanently strengthen 
    your city's Attack and Defense Stats. In this guide, we will walk you through
    the process of completing each Campaign Quest. If you attack the final cave  
    at the end of each map at the correct time, you will win a key that will     
    allow you to move on to the next area of the map. The prizes you can win from
    each cave are: Precious Metals, Rare Gems, Bilbo's Hourglasses and Forge     
    Runes.

           Gandalf: Darkness has fallen on Mirkwood. It is no longer safe to     
                    travel alone. Goblins have overrun the Wood-elves. They must 
                    be stopped!                                                  
                                                                                 
           Gandalf: We have traveled a great distance to reach Mirkwood, yet I   
                    fear we may still have many battles ahead of us.             
           Goblin Guard: Oh how foolish of you are! You've walked straight into a
                         trap. Did you really think we wouldn't see you coming?  
           Thorin: Who are you calling fool, Goblin?! You are the only fool here.
                   Goblins are no match for Dwarves!

    Battle notorious villains of Middle-earth with your alliance mates in        
    Campaign Mode. Here are some helpfull tips to help you and your alliance     
    mates get through some powerfull bosses. By helping defeat a boss, you can   
    win some Gatherers Stones, which are used in your City's Guardian to increase
    Resource Collection. Only Players who helped defeat the boss can earn its    
    rewards.                                                                     
                                                                                 
                                                          1. How to summon a Boss
                                                          -----------------------
    Go into campaign. Go to Clearing the High Pass. Start on the first page of   
    Clearing the High Pass. Start to attack the Camps on the first map. After a  
    few hits, the alliance boss will come up on that page and he will be summoned
    at that point. You can use this method on each Map to summon even higher     
    level Bosses, however you might want to start on Map 1 of Clearing the High  
    Pass so you can earn the first set of Gatherers Stone (Level I) or it will be
    useless otherwise.

                                          2. Summoning an Alliance Boss Hat Trick
                                          ---------------------------------------
    There is a secret way of collecting multiple Alliance Boss Reward Chests at  
    one time. This 'Hat Trick' can only be done by beating Campaign Map Bosses   
    multiple times until you have summoned a boss. Do this to as many Campaign   
    Map Bosses as you can, then just sit back and wait until all your summoned   
    Bosses have been defeated by other players, you don't have to attack a sum-  
    moned Boss if you don't want to, but once your bosses have been defeated, you
    will still get the Rewards Chest. This is great if you dont wanna lose any   
    troops on defeating an Alliance Boss, or if you want to collect the rewards  
    as quickly as possible. Good Luck.                                           
                                                                                 
                          3. How do defeat an Alliance Boss and do it in one hit?
                          -------------------------------------------------------
    To defeat an Alliance Boss, you will need Master Rangers and plenty of       
    Mounted T3 Troops. To defeat an Alliance Boss in one hit, say for example you
    want to defeat a Level 20 Alliance Boss, you will need to hit it with a Level
    216 or higher Hero, about 2,000 Master Rangers, and about 500 to 1,000 Moun- 
    ted T3 troop units. Once you have selected these requirements, I would recom-
    mend that you use Attack and Life Buffs. Now select attack. And your done!   
    Congrats! You've attacked and defeated an Alliance Boss in one hit! Use the  
    same tactics to battle higher level Alliance Bosses. Higher Level Bosses will
    reward you with better prizes, rare gear and Amber Stones of Vala, plus some 
    Hourglasses and Crimson Crystals. Good luck.                                 
                                                                                 
    Cheats                                                       [walk3.40]------

    There are currently TWO KNOWN Cheats for this game. They include "Rainy City"
    and "Snowy City". To activate these two cheats, you must type in and post a
    specicific special phrase in Global or Alliance chatrooms.
       
       Rainy City
       ----------
       In Global or Allinace chat, type the phrase "A storm is brewing" and post
       it. Once it has been posted, exit the chat room and it will be Storming in
       your cities. To turn off the storm, simply type and post the phrase "No
       more rain". *Please note: This code is seasonal only. I.E. It will only 
       work during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons (real-time).
       
       Snowy City
       ----------
       Please be patient as this code will be offered in a later update.
                                                                                 
    Tips and Hints                                               [walk3.45]------
    --------------                                                               
    There are many in-game Tips and Hints that most people don't notice... Here  
    are a few:                                                                   
    
       1. Instead of sending Resources to low producing Cities, boost Population 
       and upgrade Fields buildings.                                             
    
       2. Having issues making payments? Contact Kabam's Billing Support!        
    
       3. Once constructed: the Great Hall, Muster Field, Watch Tower, and Sage's
       Tower cannot be removed.
    
       4. Heads up! Many Kabam Events and Promotions have later prize payout date
       listed within the details. 
    
       5. To prevent Heroes un-assigning, always have ample Gold and high Taxes  
       in your Cities.
    
       6. Register with Kabam.com to protect your progress and backup your       
       account!
