What are Headquarters (HQ)?
The HQ determines the maximum level that your other Infrastructure can be on a castle. Its maximum upgradable level is 12.
What bonuses does the HQ grant?
The HQ increases the XP your team gets from attacking Gold Mines based on number of HQs owned and their combined level, up to a maximum of 50%.
- Leveling up your HQs increases the amount of bonus XP
- Up to 20 HQs will provide a buff to your bonus XP
- Generally, leveling up the HQ provides a larger bonus than conquering an additional castle
What is Castle Upkeep?
All castles have an upkeep cost that must be paid in Gold, even if the HQ is level 0. If upkeep is not paid, then ownership will be lost. Infrastructure will go into Storage and control over the castle's functions will cease.
What can I do in the HQ?
If you are the appointed Governor of a castle, you can toggle auto-upkeep, change the color of your team's territories on the map, pay Gold to rename the castle, check or set up stored infrastructure sets, and surrender the castle to another team.
