Kingdoms of Camelot Dark Forest Guide
Kingdoms of Camelot Dark Forest Guide by Lord TsungTzu
Level 1-10 bogs randomly become level 1-10 dark forests.
Dark forests can be scouted and they can be attacked.
If a dark forest wins a battle, it still remains where it
is. The troops that were killed will not return. Only those
surviving the battle remain in the forest.
Each time a dark forest is defeated, it disappears.
Once an hour new dark forests reappear in new places all
over the domain to replace those that have been defeated.
You can thus attack any one dark forest only once.
If you do not get a report from attacking a dark forest,
the forest most probably isn’t there anymore.
Defeating a Dark Forest
Depending on the skill of your knight, your troops will
be hit a certain number of times, till either you or they
are defeated. The more skill your knight has, the fewer
rounds will be needed to defeat a dark forest.
The strength of your own troops has little meaning. Do
not send large numbers of strong units, especially not
For minimal losses, use layered attacks. Note however,
that the order in which your layered troops fight is
quite possible random, or at least dependent on the
number of different types of troops defending.
The more layered single troops you include, the more of
them will get a chance to fight, and reduce the remaining
troops for the bulk of your force to defeat.
