Getting Book of Covenant is rare in Rise of Kingdoms, especially when you need to upgrade your Castle to Level 25 before you are able to command large rally armies. Upgrading your Castle is a tedious and time-consuming process which is why I created the Ultimate Guide to Farming Book of Covenant for Beginners.
The purpose of this guide is to help beginners like you learn how to farm Book of Covenant effectively so you can save time and speed-upgrade your Castle without having to wait at all. Doing this process will require you to be at least active on a daily basis.
Without further ado, here’s how to upgrade your Castle to Level 25 via farming Book of Covenant for beginners:
How to Upgrade Your Castle to Level 25
In the beginning of your game session in Rise of Kingdoms, maxing out your Castle to Level 25 is not the main focus. Although, as you progress into the late game, upgrading your Castle to Level 25 becomes a focus.
Though, you can’t upgrade your Academy without having a Level 25 Castle. Which means you need to level up all of your buildings to Level 25 before you are even able to further research techs in Academy.
A friendly tip for you: don’t spend your speedups on research when closing out to Tier 5 troops at all. Focus on upgrading your Castle to Level 25 then you can invest speedups on Tier 5 troops.
The main problem here is if you upgrade Tier 5 troops using your speedups. Then you don’t have any remaining speedups to accelerate Castle to Level 25. You will be stuck at max research with nothing to upgrade for days and days.
This is an easy mistake to make. But completely avoidable if you take initiative to farm Book of Covenant and prioritizing the upgrade procedure.
How to Farm Book of Covenant
The most effective way to farm Book of Covenant is to destroy barbarian fortresses as many as you can. For starters, you will need to get 5,000 Book of Covenants to level up your Castle from 24 to 25.
Otherwise, you can buy more during the More than Gems event. Obviously, if you are going to play as a Free-to-Play player, then you will want to stick to farming the barbarian fortresses and buying books during the event with the remaining gems.
Here’s a few ways you can get more Book of Covenant to make it easier to farm for them:
- VIP Shop Chests: Very expensive the higher your VIP level is, but easy way to get more.
- Spending your gems during the More Than Gems event.
- Alliance Chests comes with 10 Book of Covenant, a nice reward whenever someone in your alliance buys a chest in-game.
- Farming Barbarian Fortresses gives you Book of Covenant, a mini farming account and peacekeeping commanders like Keira, Lohar or Aethelflaed is recommended.
If you plan to farm Book of Covenant all by yourself, with your main account and a mini farming account. Then simply follow these steps to solo kill the barbarian fortresses the easy way:
- Stay away from your alliance.
- Do solo barbarian fortresses that are level 1, 2 and 3.
- Rally on Level 3 barbarian fortresses on your main account and join using your farm account.
- Rally on Level 2 barbarian fortresses on your farm account and join using your main account.
- Rinse and repeat, you get 5 Book of Covenants for each victorious battle at a much quicker pace.
