Battlegrounds are locations on the Darkshine that have been occupied by Balur's Black Horde. Completely destroy these Battlegrounds:
- to secure the immediate territory around your Castle,
- earn experience points,
- liberate friendly units,
- gain valuable resources.
Battleground Strength Indicators
Every Battleground has two strength indicators – its Level and Current Strength. The Level indicates the size of the force occupying the Battleground. The Current Strength represents the approximate percentage of enemy Units remaining at the Battleground. Both indicators can be found on your Eagle's Nest interface.
You may attack the same Battleground as many times as needed in order to destroy all its occupying units. Battlegrounds are protected by dark spell - rendering your Spies useless. While many may contain valuable resources or captured friendly units – some will offer nothing but hordes of Enemies and the opportunity to earn experience points. Each Battleground you destroy for no reward significantly increases your odds of receiving a bonus on your next attempt – so keep trying!
You must build the Eagle's Nest in order to detect Battlegrounds around your Castle. The Eagle's Nest gives you intel about:
- New Battlegrounds spawning around your Castle
- Level and Current Strength of Battleground.
All detected Battlegrounds can be found in the Eagle's Nest on the "Battlegrounds" tab. Upgrading the Eagle's Nest has no effect on the number of detected Battlegrounds, but will allow you to detect more Settlements on the Map.
Hold your cursor over an Battleground on the Map to see its strength indicators and available actions. You can view the Battleground Level and Current Strength, dispatch a force to attack it, or return to the "Battlegrounds" tab at your Eagle's Nest interface from this menu.
From within your Castle, go to your Eagle's Nest and open the "Battlegrounds" tab to view all available Battlegrounds. Upgrading the Eagle's Nest has no effect on the number of detected Battlegrounds, but will allow you to detect more Settlements on the Map.
