Kingdoms of Camelot Tutorial - City Building

Updated on August 21, 2011

Kingdoms of Camelot - Facebook App

Kingdoms of Camelot is a real-time strategy (RTS) game played through Facebook. When you start this tactics game, you should follow the online tutorial and finish the quests. These are specifically designed to teach players how to construct buildings, improve fields, conquer wildernesses, explore the lands and add additional cities.

Completing these will bring your might up to about 900,000. The application designers did an outstanding job to help new players learn this RTS game.

Once you learn the intricacies of the game, you will be able to join an alliance and actively grow your kingdom. It is always a challenge to balance your resource production strategies with the growth of your armies, but if you are able to effectively master it, your kingdom will be able to grow easily!

Kingdoms of Camelot - Barracks vs. Cottages

There will be two competing buildings when you reach the advanced stages of the game.  You can build a cottage to increase your population, your tax rates, and the number of soldiers you can build at one time. You can also build a barracks.  The more barracks you have, the faster you can build your armies.  

There are 31 total spaces inside your city walls to build the necessary buildings.  Most people build between 8-10 cottages and 8-10 barracks.  Too much of a population will be your enemy here.  Granted, you can earn taxes from your population, but the amount is so small that it is not worth it.  You will earn a lot more gold from harvesting resources and selling them at the market.  

You can easily build 10-15 barracks with a few simple tips:

  • Only build 7 cottages.  That will give you enough population to keep people employed in the fields and to allow for large building queues in the barracks.
  • Do not build a market in both cities.  You only need one market.  You can transport gold and resources between the two cities using supply carts.
  • If you do not engage in PvP combat, you could discard the watch tower.  You will not have warning of attacks, but if your walls are fully defended, then there may not be much more you need to worry about.  Keep those resources low, and it will discourage repeat attackers.

Redistributing buildings like this in Kingdoms of Camelot will allow you to build 10 - 15 barracks, which will help you build armies faster in the later periods of the game.

This Facebook App will keep you playing for hours!

      LEVEL 9 OR BETTER SHRINKING POWDER

      I enjoy having two markets one, in each city. That way when food is being sold cheaply in one market and expensively in another I can buy it cheap and sell it high. I have been doing that today and am making lots of gold, so having two markets is fun!
