Expeditions are attacking the horses on the World Map, and are a very important part of the game for a number of reasons.
- You gain Lord experience.
- The commanders you send gain experience.
- You gain items for crafting different sets in the Blacksmith.
- You can gain diamonds, resources, speed ups and other consumables.
- When you kill one your whole alliance gets a gift.
You should ALWAYS be attacking the Rebel Leaders and using up your Motivation. There is no reason to wait, the more you attack the stronger you’ll be, the more you kill the more you benefit your alliance. If you can’t kill them alone yet work with your alliance to kill them together!
Each day there are two different Rebel Leaders available on the World Map, you can see which two by clicking the search (magnifying glass) on the World Map. Each Rebel Leader stays for 2 days but they overlap. So today you might have Crownlands Rioter and Westerlands Ore thief, tomorrow you might have Westerlands Ore Thief and Northern Rebel, and the next day Northern Rebel and Old Town Student. We are still working on seeing if there is any pattern to the rotation of Rebel Leaders. Generally the Rebel Leader on the left in search is the new one, and the one on the right the one that will be replaced on the next day’s reset. This does seem to occasionally glitch though.
NOTE: In a recent update the way you decide your lineup for attacking Rebel Leaders has changed. There is significantly more importance on countering than before. This refers to troop counter:
Spearmen > Cavalry
This is not just the direct counter across from the leader in the formation screen either, every commander matters. So for example when attacking a Stormland’s Insurgent which is an infantry type you want to use as many Cavalry commanders as possible. Even if you have to replace a stronger commander with a weaker one.
Rebel Leader Rotation
Rebel Leaders are on a set overlapping rotation. Each leader stays on the world map for 48 hours with a new one rotating in each day at reset time. Below is that rotation, when it reaches the end it just starts again from the beginning.
