 cao cao governor comic

Since you have only a limited number of normal heroes you want to make sure that you make the most of the ones you have. Not all your cities need governors and if you don’t have epic heroes it will be better to keep most of your heroes together so you can duel with them easier and treat them with a nice banquet. Having your governors at level 100 will give your cities the best production bonus. If you have Epics or heroes with skillbooks that boost food production, you want to make sure that they are in the important cities with your governors. They do not have to be governor for you to get the bonus but only the highest bonus from a hero applies in a city.

So which cities should have governors?

A empty city is very easy to govern...

Your Main city obviously should always have a governor. If you have any County or State capitals they should also have a governor. Your capital outpost and any 15c should be good candidate because they will produce more food.

Other way to increase the output of your governor ?

Go in your civil and assign them to positions that increase their politics. Equip them with equipment that raise their level. Raise their level, add skillbook with the farm skill.

What equipment should your governor have ?

The basic minimum your governors should have is a Cloud helm and Welfare of the People equipped and are assigned positions that increase their politics. If you don’t have welfare of People in hand you can always use a Cloud enforced lance which usually increase politic too.

What skill and skill books make good governor ?

At level 50 some epic heroes get a farm skill that give up to 25% food output. Sun Quan, Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Zhou Yu all have a 25 % Farm bonus while Zhang Cheng (from the hermit house) have only a 9% bonus. You can give skill book that have the Farm skill, this will increase your output too. Note that the farm skill from the heroes level 50 bonus and the skillbook stack together but if 2 heroes have the heroes level 50 skill only the best bonus from both heroes will be taken, same thing go from skill book.

This is a follow up of the latest Nobility post, this one is mostly base on the in game guide.

Title Beyond Generalissimo

These are special titles. Only one title is available on each server. These titles are the ultimate honor in the world of Three Kingdoms.



Once a player has taken control of the Imperial Capital and 4 State Capitals, has more than 2,234,400 Contribution Value points, and the State Capital has opened for more than 30 days, then the player will be allowed to build an Imperial Palace in the Imperial Capital.  When the Palace reaches level 5, you will under attack by NPC troops every time when you upgrade it.  There will be a final wave of troops attacking when your Palace reaches level 20.  If you survive in these attacks, you will get the title of Emperor.

  • Bonus:
    • Recruiting speed in all cities increase by 20%
    • Every time you donate tokens to the court, you can earn extra 20 point of Contribution Value points
    • Attack and Defense value of troops is increased by 15%.

Prime Minister

If you have 1,396,500 Contribution Value points or more, when you occupy the Imperial Capital, you will gain the title of Prime Minister. If lose control of the Imperial Capital, or one of your 2 State Capitals, you will lose the title as well.

The Lord of Qin is a noble rank which players can fight for once the server starts. The player with the highest Contribution Value over 2,234,400, will gain the title of Lord of Qin. This title will be re-calculated at 24:00 every Saturday, and will not change for a week.
Bonus: Attack and Defense value of troops increase by 15%.

Position for Heroes
You can appoint a office position for each hero of yours. The position can increase his status. There are 4 types of positions, each can increase one of their status. You must have certain nobility to appoint the corresponding position. Another request is your hero should reach a certain level.

Nobility Rank


Increasing your rank will allow you to assign your heroes to positions that increase their stats. More importantly it will allow your granaries to store more food, which is important if you plan to improve your resource fields to level 20. The easiest way to increase your nobility rank is to do duels in the faction camps. The more duels you do the better chances you have of getting a Court Quest item. You can only donate items up to a certain rank and then after that the Court Quest never asks for them again. To make the most of your items here is what you should be donating at each rank. Citizen– Wine, Salt, Silk Baron– Salt, Silk, Indigo Viscount– Silk, Indigo, Fur Marquis– Indigo, Fur, Horse Count– Fur, Horse, Spice Duke– Horse, Spice, Jade Infante– Spice, Jade, Pearl Lord-Jade, Pearl, Gold Save your Tribute Tokens for the later levels (Duke +) and only donate them during events that increase their value. How to get items to increase rank ? If you want to increase your nobility without gold the best way is to do faction quest and duel in the faction map. 1- Getting order arrows via Faction quest Order Arrows: Order Arrows are acquired through the Faction Quests. Only a few Faction Quests reward Order Arrows when you complete them. Once you have obtained Order Arrows through completing the Faction Quests, go to the Faction Map, then choose your Faction, then go to the Faction Reward page, and choose your reward. Not only are there Quest Items but there are armor, weapons, skill books, etc, so you may not wish to spend these versatile items on Quest Items. To spend Order Arrows follow these steps: order arrow 2- Dueling:When a player sends a hero to duel,if he wins the duel he may gain an item through the fight. Every once in awhile the item gained is a Quest Item. The Quest Items gained are usually Silk and Indigo, but very, very occasionally Fur and other higher Contribution Value Quest Items are gained through Dueling. Click the Faction Map button, then choose your Dueling Region, then pick your general to duel. I usually pick the highest level general to Duel, though if you lose most of your duels choose lower level generals to Duel. duel for nobility Source : Check this post on how to get to Generalissimo without gold : Do nobility rank increase rate of finding epic heroes ?¸ No, It will only affect the stats of normal heroes you found in the epic search. Nobility won’t affect the stats of epic heroes. Nobility rank have no effect on the probability of finding a epic hero. source : What the advantage of each rank

More Information :

TKO Server Release/Merge Dates


XuSheng had some time on his hand and decided to make a list of all the merge and the time before they merged. That can be useful to know how long will your server will merge.

Seem that the fastest was 5 month after opening (s37) and the longest time was 23 month (U10) and 18 month (s1). Almost 2 year before a merge I’m surprise people were still playing the U10 server.

Check out XuSheng thread for the complete list:

Multiserver Battle

MSB recently finished and there been some talk about how MSB is boring because two big league just join together, you can read the whole forum thread for more info. Note that since the Gladiator have disbanded their league that might be different next time.

There a new server up S87, check out the related thread:

Return of the Earth Seal

I’ve wrote about the Earth seal a while ago, which give you the ability to turn a 15 farm fields city into a 18 farm fields city.

It cost your heart and soul though because you have to accumulate 10K of gold during the event.

Event 3: Magic Earth Seal Appears Again!!
If you accumulatively add 10000 gold in the deadline of the event, you will get Earth Seal X 1, Rotation Order, Level 3 * 1, Reforging Bolus * 1, Outpost Command * 2, Divine Recall X1, Enhanced Steel, Level 3 *1.

Clash Of kingdom L5, L7 and L10 Server merge poll


L5, L7 and L10 are almost done, while we don’t have a hard date, Koram is asking for suggestion on how to do the merge.
You can check the forum thread and give your opinion if your one of those server.
Here the forum thread :
Here where you can vote on one of 4 option :


I think Merging all 3 servers into 1 its bad, having many characters in the same server is very annoying to do specially with the new koram start page. Some players are stuck with 3 and more different character they need to switch.
Instead of merging everybody in 1 server, create 3 new L servers with different maps (one with 6, one with 8 one with 3) and kingdoms for each account ID to pick. This will allows players to split up their IDs into different kingdoms and reduce the pain of account switching.
So from that perspective I think the best option is the last one (option 4) have 3 new server and legion can change server.
So go give your opinion you have until march 15th 11h59PM PST.


We finally had our servers merge recently, one year of waiting Finally paid off or so I though….


For a bit of history I’m from server 14, we got wacked on our first merge and then we waited 1 year and 3 month before being merged again. I almost stop playing but the idea of a merge brought me back to life, I was prepared, I even reread my guide and Koram guide.

It might took us more than a year before being merged, but It took 3 fucking days for the server to be finish and now we are back to sim city for another year. We’re still in the adjustment period and the server is over….

This is my troop while watching my league mate getting attack

I couldn’t even attack to help because I moved my troop too late, so I could only send support and watch my brother lose there capital in agony.
Sure they’re the multi-server that make sense to keep playing but I don’t want to wait another year…

I think the servers merge seriously need to be rethink, the idea is good but they’re too much stuff that kind of get in the way and it’s kind of boring that we waited a year for that and it took like 3 days.
At least our initial Tiamat S14 vs KE s20 (not sure the server no) took around a week but that was pretty fast too.
I’ll try to think of something that could be done to have a decent merge and post it in the suggestion forum.

Let me know what you think, here or in the forum thread

My Story from the merge of server U5 (S14 & S20)

Koram guide

city in flame

King of the Hill is series of battles between leagues to occupy and hold different locations for a specified period of time. It is the only way to receive the kingdom tax (regional and national) and other prize.
From the beginner guide: (

  • King of the Hill lasts for 30 minutes for both regional and national wars.
  • Regional War: Starts every Saturday at 10:00-10:30 (PST)
  • National War: Starts every Sunday at 19:00-19:30 (PST)
  • The first attack may be sent out at exactly 10:00 and 19:00 respectively
  • NPCs will defend the city first. When the NPCs are destroyed, players will defend the city.
  • Players from opposing leagues will attack each other.  (Does not matter if the league is a "sister league")
  • Players from the same league will help defend each other.
  • King of the Hill is where players can receive a tax license.
  • Capitals are defended with units that have the high defence.  Units that have a lower defence rating than your main defence unit already defending the capital will be sent back to your city.

Other thing they forgot :

– The time provided here is not always true, they sometime change the time to accommodate players who cannot play in those hours.

– Troop deployed to a King of the Hill target (KoTH) will take the same amount of to reach the city, you troop speed, heroes ability and upgrade have no influence on the time. However you state location have an influence on how much time it will take to arrive at destination. It for minute if you are in the same region (north, east, west, south) than the capital and 8 if you are outside.  here how north, east, west, south is separated :


– Regional KOTH targets can hold up to 2,000 player defending units. National KOTH targets can hold up to 5,000 Player defending units.
– They are 6 prizes per city in the regional and 9 for the national war.
note that only the following player that achieves the following goal will receives a revenue license (tax) (among other prize).

Master of Marching: Player who occupies the target city for the longest time.
Lord of Slayer: Player who have the most Kill
Lord of War: Given randomly to any player who occupied the KOTH city during the event.

On revenue license (tax permit) : Regional war give the tax permission for your region and national war give it to the whole server. When you have it you need to chose a league to tax.
You get a lot of resources when you use it , it always depends on which league your tax but it always a decent amount my lowest was around 150k of each resources and highest 500K-600k.

Tips and tactical note:

I noticed player knock out the troop then leave to prevent lost, so that mean you can always try to send from you sub and you might be able to grab a city (this happen specially in the regional)
Just by occupying the city you can get the lord of war so it might worth it.
I haven’t really try any fancy tactic, most of the time there not much players that are doing it any way since for some of us its during office hour or in the middle of the night.
Most of the time if you’re in the top league you’ll end up hitting your own sister league or supporting your league member if you arrive late, so try not to be late.

However if you have a huge force it can help you get kill and become Lord of slayer, then withdraw your troop to prevent lost.


Hope it help and check those guide with image and stuff for more info on King of the hill.
