Tower of Odin and Raven Towers

After upgrading the Stronghold to level 4, the Tower of Odin can be built there — the building that allows the Chief and Elders to set Siege status in the Stronghold. This unlocks access to battles with troops led by jötunns and other Jarls' troops that can attack your Stronghold.

In order to build the Tower of Odin and activate Siege status in the Stronghold, you need a special item — Precious Dust. The latter is also required in order to upgrade Clan buildings, learn Knowledge of a certain kind in the Shamans' Residence, and to craft, upgrade, and set traps. To get Precious Dust, transform Legendary gems in the Workshop.

Once the Tower of Odin has been constructed, you can send reinforcements to the Clan Stronghold at any time. They will defend the Fortress from enemy troops or troops led by jötunns during a Siege. If you want to change reinforcements, then just recall your warriors and send new ones — this can also be done at any time.

Upgrading the Tower of Odin level increases the power of troops led by jötunns.

Once your Clan has upgraded the Tower of Odin to level 6, the Chief will be able to build Raven Towers. These are Clan Fortresses that acquire Siege status together with the Clan Stronghold.

Raven Towers are built on the Global Map, but only within your Clan's Valley of the Aesir. They cannot be constructed in the Millennial Forest.

In order to build Raven Towers, you need to learn a certain number of pieces of Knowledge in the Hall of Glory.

You will also need Clan resources and Precious Dust. Anything you spend on constructing the Fortress won't be refunded if construction is canceled.

Raven Towers cannot be relocated or demolished. They will only disappear if the Clan Stronghold is destroyed or the Clan is disbanded.

Siege status

The Clan Stronghold and all Raven Towers that have been constructed acquire Siege status simultaneously.

Only the Chief and the Elders have the right to activate Siege status. To do so, they need to:

  • Go to the Tower of Odin in the Clan Stronghold
  • Open the Siege tab
  • Hit the "Activate" button

Siege status cannot be activated if:

  • Convoys of resources are moving to or from the Stronghold
  • There is not enough Precious Dust to activate it
  • A Raven Tower is under construction
  • This function of Tower of Odin is still on cooldown

To activate Siege status, you need Precious Dust.

  • At Tower of Odin level 1 — 100 units
  • At Tower of Odin level 2 — 250 units
  • At Tower of Odin level 3 — 500 units
  • At Tower of Odin level 4 — 1,000 units
  • At Tower of Odin level 5 — 2,000 units
  • At Tower of Odin level 6 — 4,000 units
The cost of activating Siege status also increases as you build each consecutive Raven Tower.

Siege status lasts for one hour. After that, the Tower of Odin's status changes to "Guarded," which means that your Stronghold and Raven Towers cannot be attacked. From this moment on, the Tower of Odin shifts into a state of recovery. At Tower levels 1–4, the recovery process takes three days; at level 5, it takes two days; and at level 6, it takes one day.

When Siege status is activated, all Clan members receive a system message in their mail and a special message about it appears in chats. During this time, the Clan Fortresses are attacked by troops led by jötunns. They all start marching at the same time but they reach the Stronghold and Raven Towers at different times as they come from different places on the Global Map.

The number and strength of troops depend on the level of the Tower of Odin:

  • At level 1, the Stronghold is attacked by troops led by jötunn fighters
  • At level 2, troops led by jötunn warriors are added to them
  • At level 3, troops led by jötunn soldiers are added
  • At level 4, troops led by jötunn commanders appear
  • At level 5, your Stronghold can also be attacked by troops led by jötunn warlords
  • At level 6, troops led by jötunn generals are added

At all levels of the Tower of Odin, troops of jötunn spies can sneak into your Clan Fortresses. Their number and strength depend on the level of the Tower of Odin. Only your scouts can fight them.

In addition, each consecutive Raven Tower that you build is more difficult to defend than the previous one.

Defeating troops led by jötunn warlords and jötunn generals requires a well-trained army and coordinated actions between all Clan members. Make sure you can stand against these enemies before you upgrade the Tower of Odin!

For destroying these troops, you receive Soul Shards, which are necessary for enhancing the Aesir and learning secret Knowledge.

Other Jarls who are Clan members can also attack your Stronghold and Raven Towers while Siege status is active.

During the Siege, a special icon appears on the Global Map screen. When you select it, a window will open that shows information about the Fortresses that are under siege and about any enemy marches.

In the Marches tabs of the Tower of Odin and Raven Towers, you can also find detailed information about the troops attacking the relevant Fortress. It is available irrespective of the levels of your Watchtower and Tower of Odin.

If troops led by jötunns attack your Clan Fortresses, the march block in the tab is outlined with a yellow border. If enemy Jarls attack, it is outlined with a red border.

Reports about attacks and defenses of the Clan Fortresses are the same as the battle reports in the Place of Power, except that the defenders information block displays info about the Clan that holds the Stronghold or a Raven Tower.

If attacking troops move towards the Clan Fortress, the edges of the screen are highlighted in yellow and the Marches icon appears in the Town window. If a Clan member's Town is attacked at the same time, the highlighting changes to red.

By killing enemy warriors in a Clan Fortress, Jarls can get:

  • Soul Shards, if the opponents are from an enemy Kingdom
  • Points in Competitions

To find how many points you can get by killing warriors of a specific tier, go to the Competition section in the Events window.

In the case of a failed defense during global Competitions, no points are deducted from a Clan. On the contrary, the Clan still earns points for any warriors from the jötunn's troops that the Clan's members killed. Meanwhile, your Clan's opponents in the Competition can earn points if they attack your troops in the Stronghold and Raven Towers.

Please note several important rules:

  • Jarls can attack Clan Fortresses, send an Onslaught, scouts, or reinforcements and resources there only if they are in the same Kingdom as the Fortresses.
  • The Clan Chief and Elders can activate Siege status only if they are in their home Kingdom.
  • The Chief cannot demolish the Stronghold or disband the Clan while Siege status is active.
  • If Jarls leave the Clan at the moment when the reinforcement troop is formed, the warriors cannot be sent.
  • If Jarls are expelled from the Clan, their troops that have been in the Stronghold or Raven Towers up until now return to their Town.
  • If the defense fails, reinforcement troops return to their Towns as usually happens in battles for other Fortresses (Siege status remains active in this case).
  • If the Clan Stronghold is destroyed or the Clan is disbanded when the Stronghold has Guarded status, all reinforcements return to their Towns.
  • If the Clan is disbanded or the Chief destroys the Stronghold when the Elders are trying to activate Siege status, the action cannot be performed.
  • If the Elders are expelled from the Clan or downgraded when they are trying to activate Siege status, the action cannot be performed.
