Soldiers is a generic term for your Warriors, Archers, Mages and Cannoners.
Three buildings are connected with your soldiers:
- Barracks: Here you recruit your soldiers for gold, and also increase the maximum amount of soldiers you can deploy in a single battle.
- Hall of Heroes: Here you can improve your soldiers' PVP stats, and through them your Battle Power.
- Rural Camp: Increase the maximum amount of soldiers for each of your heroes' soldiers.
On the Fighting Pits the only number that matters is the maximum deployable soldiers, but you do not actually deploy or lose them.
Unlock at Kingdom Level 16.
Soldiers PVP stats can be improved though each of their associated heroes in the Hall of Heroes. You must unlock each hero before you can improve its associated soldiers. This requires huge amounts of Tear of Shiva and after the first upgrades, other assorted resources, and increase your Battle Power. When you upgrade, the cooldown will increase, preventing you from overupgrading.
Each hero has their own Soldier Arms and 6 abilities to upgrade. Those abilities in turn improve the following factors in PVP battles:
- Grants soldiers increased damaged in PVP battles
- Soldiers take less damage in PVP battles
- Increases maximum soldier limit
After you upgrade those abilities to the limit, you can advance the arm and start next stage of upgrades. You must upgrade all abilities of a certain kind of soldier before you can start the next stage of this soldier, but different soldiers can be at different stages. Some stages require that their associated hero is at a certain Rank.
From Kingdom Level 30 onwards, Tears of Shiva are more useful to upgrade Tower Talents (see Engineering Quarter) for they have the same Gold/BP ratio but they also improve the Tower Defense part of the game).
However, Soldier Upgrades are still useful if you're concentrating on the PVP part of the game.
