Plarium’s Vikings: War of Clans has a title that’s awfully similar to one of the most popular mobile games around these days, but the premise is an entirely different one. For this iOS and Android game, you’ll be stepping into the world of Vikings, where freedom, power, fear, and violence reign supreme. There’s a city-building element, where you build your palace, and you can also take part in campaigns while growing your army and raiding the enemy for loot. And speaking of raiding the enemy, that probably justifies the “-of Clans” in the name of the game – this is a massively multiplayer online game where you can interact with real players from all over the world.
Now, that we’ve told you about the game and what it’s all about, we shall be moving on to some useful Vikings: War of Clans cheats, tips and strategies.
1. Prioritize Resources First
When starting the game, you’ll want to focus on your resources and gather up enough of them. This game has a speed-up option, where you can skip through the wait time and have your resources right away. And if you don’t meet all the requirements in order to build something, you can hit the “go to” button so you can go to the building that has to be upgraded before the others. Continue this until you’re all out of resources and you’ll be fine.
2. Raid The Inactive Kingdoms
Just like in the decidedly more popular Clash of Clans, you can have yourself a field day gathering, or should we say, looting resources by attacking kingdoms run by players who are no longer active. These are kingdoms with some resources but no troops, and you should, by all means, raid them and get yourself some much-needed wood, stone, iron, silver, and food.
3. Build A Lot Of Farms
You’ll need a lot of farms in this game, and make sure they’re regularly upgraded. The more troops you have, the more food they’ll consume, and that means ensuring they have enough food by building and upgrading your fair share of farms. A good way to build up your food reserves is to send your troops on extended missions so they won’t have to eat any food from your home base for the meantime.
4. Don’t Play The Resource Reward Quests Until Needed
There are a whole lot of quests in Vikings: War of Clans, and it’s a good idea to complete as many of them as possible so you can score yourself more gold, resources, and XP. But you don’t have to play the resource reward quests unless you really require the resources. Nobody will be able to claim your rewards if you leave those quests in your folder, but if you claim the rewards, they’re fair game for everyone else who’s active.
5. Join An Active Clan
We cannot stress this enough – Vikings: War of Clans isn’t called such for no reason at all. And the clan you join should be an active one – that’s going to give you a big advantage, as long as you’re teaming up with trustworthy players.
