Unit Upgrades

Attack
Once you hit the later game, you may want to upgrade your military to make it more cost-effective. Each unit can receive up to 3 damage upgrades, and 3 armour upgrades.

The upgrades are noted with a bronze, silver or gold sword/shield icon, although the upgrade names are generally noted as something else.

  • Bronze upgrades give units +1 damage or armour.
  • Silver upgrades give them an additional +1 (total +2) damage or armour.
  • Gold upgrades give them another +1 (total +3) damage or armour.
