The Spirit Mines

Blutmine

Who doesn't know them - the spirit mines. But especially new players are denied access for some time. Only from castle level 16 is access to the mines free to collect the valuable crystals.


"The Cardinal has created a sinister warren of mines leading deep into the Earth, with a horde of Infected Miners steadily gathering a stockpile of mysterious Lazarus Crystals for him. It's up to the bravest Lords in the Kingdom to enter the Mines and foil the Cardinal's plot by seizing the Crystals, especially since it's rumored the Crystals could bring the Cardinal back from his undead state and allow him to claim the Crown...

So much for that. A lot of information in one fell swoop, right? We think so too. We want to explain the whole thing bit by bit.


Crystals Crystals collected


1. The Doctor has provided you with troops to explore the Mine! Their March Capacity is based on your Castle level and current benefits. Troops killed or injured in the Mine will not affect your City's troops, but it will affect the number of your troops in the Mining Area and its Quarries

As soon as you descend into the spirit mines, your troops will follow. However, these cannot be compared to those that you have recruited through hard work and at high costs. The system, in this case the doctor, puts an army at your disposal for the spirit mines. Your troops in the castle have nothing to do with the mines. The number of troops depends on your castle level and your benefits, for example from research. The higher you have built, the more and better troops are at the start.

2. Once you enter the Quarries, you can't return to your previous location in the Mining Area.

This means that you can only farm crystals on this level. If you want to choose a different mine, you will need to reset the spirit mine.

3. Each time you enter the Mining Area, you will have a set period of time to gather Lazarus Crystals and Amethyst Crystals. Once the time is up, you will be taken out of the Quarries. The time in which you can collect crystals differs from level to level. If the time runs out you will be kicked out. In order to avoid a supply shortfall, you can leave your mine after a certain time and immediately re-occupy it. Then the collection time starts all over again.

4. You cannot conquer Quarries occupied by other Lords in the Protected Area of the Mining Area.

Floor 1 and 2 are protected floors. There are endless mines here and in these mines it is not possible to attack other lords. Very well in the deeper floors.

5. Your March Capacity is the same for both the Mining Area and the rest of the Mine.

This means that your marching capacity remains the same when descending into lower levels as well as in the floor. However, it does not change as you increase your marching capacity through research or the like. The new marching capacity can only be used if you reset the spirit mine and use your new marching capacity to descend to your desired floor.

6. Guards that increase March Capacity are unable to use this benefit in the Spirit Mine.

The increased marching capacity of your guards does not affect the marching capacity in the spirit mines. So it doesn't matter whether you use level 1 or level 80 guards in your march in terms of marching capacity.

7. Losses endured in the Mining Area will not affect your Estate's toops, but will affect your troops' Recovery time within the Mine.

If someone attacks you in the spirit mines in a mine or if you want to attack someone yourself and troops are wounded in the process, this will not affect your troops in the castle. It only increases your recovery time in the spirit mine. You have no real losses.

8. Once your troops' Recovery time reaches a certain level, you won't be able to occupy Quarries, attack other Lords or take Revenge until their Recovery time goes back down to 0.

Show point 7.

9. You cannot reset the Mine while you are occupying a Mining Area outside of the Protected Area.

If you are in a mine area and collect crystals that are not protected, you cannot reset the spirit mines. This is only possible in the protected mine areas on floor 1 and 2, as no attacks are possible here. This is for the reason that lost lords have the opportunity to take revenge for attacks.


Floors Floors


10. If a Quarry you are occupying is conquered by another Lord, you will lose some of the Lazarus Crystals and Amethyst Crystals you've gathered from it. You can regain them by successfully taking Revenge.

Everything is explained here. From the mine area floor 3 you can attack other lords and occupy an occupied mine yourself to get the coveted crystals. If the battle is successful, you will receive part of the crystals that were already collected by the previous occupier. But be careful: the Lord can take revenge and oust you again. Then you lose some of the crystals you have collected.

11. Troops occupying a Quarry will be treated as defenders if the Quarry is attacked.

You don't need to mention anything in addition. That should be clear so far.

12. You can exchange Lazarus Crystals and Amethyst Crystals for rewards as Mine Loot.

You can exchange crystals for items. Whether gem essence, resources or EXP - just swap what you need. Note, however, that the items are limited in number. So you can't just swap 1000 refinement chests for your airship for crystals. In this case, these are limited to 15 pieces per day.

13. When an entire area of the Crystal Mines has no occupied Mines, it may be reset.
