War’s raging on all territories. When entering a territory you see how much time is left of that territory’s round. Help your faction take control of territories. You can also partner up with your clan members to become one of the top 3 clans in each round.

The winning faction of each round gets a territory reward. The faction’s top clans get an even better reward. You can pick up territory rewards off the battle map whenever your faction has earned them, but only for those territories you’ve unlocked.
Access creature combat by clicking on a ruin. Ruins are those big piles of rock on land, often only visible of you chop down the forest first. This will bring up the ruin’s menu where you can see how difficult the battle will be, what you’re getting if you win and how many units and spells you have available. Continue by clicking ‘Fight!”
Summon, move, attack and capture the same way as in player vs. player battles.
Unlike player vs. player battles, creature battles have multiple relics. Your objective is to capture them all. By capturing the relic you claim the land and destroy the ruin.
You can always enter creature battles by selecting the ‘Creature Battle’ option in a Barracks or Temple menu. This keeps you on your toes and might earn you a few splinters and XP.
