  • Boots of the Mercenary
    +25% speed on the army's base speed for distances > 20 fields
    Please have a look at the example described under "Boots or Warrior".

  • Boots of the Warrior
    +50% speed on the army's base speed for distances > 20 fields
    The troop speed increase by 50% for any distance over 20 fields - that means for the first 20 fields there is no increase, only for the rest of the trip.

     So for example if the distance is 33 fields, the first 20 fields you travel at normal speed, and then next 13 fields you travel 50% faster than normal.
    For first 20 fields Imperians will need around 1 hr 25 mins no matter if you wear boots or not.
    Then for the rest of the trip (13 fields) if you don't wear any boots (base speed 14), they will need around 56 minutess: Total travel time around 2 hr 21 mins.  
    If wearing boots (base speed 21), for this 13 tiles they will need around 37 minutes: Total travel time 2 hr 2 mins .

     
    As you can see boots will make a bigger difference if the distance is longer.

  • Boots of the Archon
    +75% speed on the army's base speed for distances > 20 fields
    Please have a look at the example described under "Boots or Warrior".

Consumables

  • Ointment
    Regenerate the health points of the hero immediately. The number of ointments determines how many health points are regenerated (max 100%). Takes effect when equipped. 
    This item is stackable.

  • Scroll
    Takes effect when put in the bag and gives a certain amount of experience. Takes effect when equipped.
    This item is stackable. 

  • Water bucket
    Resurrect your hero at once and for free. If the hero is alive, you cannot put a water bucket in the bag. Takes effect when equipped.
    Water buckets are only usable once per day at a 1x speed server. For higher speed servers this depends on the speed of the server: (24 hours / (RoundDown (Speed/3) + 1)))

  • Tablet of law
    Raises the loyalty in the home town of the hero for 1% for each tablet, to a maximum of 125%. Takes effect when equipped. 
    This item is stackable.
    The item can only be used when the village had 100% loyalty once before.
    The number of tablets of law has been adjusted to the length of a server, meaning there will be less tablets at the start and the number will then increase gradually during the course of the server.

  • Book of wisdom
    Reset all attributes and rearrange them.

  • Artwork
    If you give it to your inhabitants, they´ll start a spontaneous party without the need for a town hall nor time.
    This item is stackable.
    The maximum culture points a player can get from an artwork is 2000 on 1x speed servers and 1000 on 3x speed servers. In addition, no artwork drops for the player in an adventure in the first 14 days of the server.

  • Small bandage
    Battle losses are reduced directly after the Battle, if they are in the bag of the hero.
    These bandages can heal a maximum of 25% the losses.
    You can only heal the amount of troops that you have bandages for. Healing takes the returning time of the troops but a minimum of 24 hours.
    This item is stackable.
    NOTE: This means that you need for example 50 small bandages to heal 25% of 200 lost troops.
    In case you have less small bandages than troops to restore, then the same percent of units of each troop type is restored. If there are still bandages left, then its restored from left to right.
    To speak in numbers: if you attacked with 100 clubswingers and 100 axeman and lost 60 of each, you would be able to restore 30 troops (15 each). In case you have 20 small bandages 10 of each troop would be restored. In the same example just with 21 small bandages you would get 11 clubswingers and 10 axeman back.
    In case your hero is equipped with 20 bandages and you attacked with 100 swordsmen / 100 theutates thunders and lost 40 swordsmen / 20 theutates thunders, you would be able to restore 10 swordsmen (25% of the loses of swordsmen) / 5 theutates thunders (25% of the loses of theutates thunders). For sure you would still have 5 unused small bandages in this case.

  • Bandage

    These bandages can heal a maximum of 33% the losses.
    You can only heal the amount of troops that you have bandages for. Healing takes the returning time of the troops but a minimum of 24 hours.
    This item is stackable.
    NOTE: This means that you need for example 99 bandages to heal 33% of 300 troops.
    In case you have less bandages than troops to restore then the same percent of units of each troop type is restored. If there are still bandages left, then its restored from left to right.
    To speak in numbers: if you attacked with 100 clubswingers and 100 axeman and lost 60 of each, you would be able to restore 40 troops (20 each). In case you have 20 bandages 10 of each troop would be restored. In the same example just with 21 bandages you would get 11 clubswingers and 10 axeman back.
    In case your hero is equipped with 40 bandages and you attacked with 100 swordsmen / 100 theutates thunders and lost 60 swordsmen / 30 theutates thunders, you would be able to restore 20 swordsmen (33% of the loses of swordsmen) / 10 theutates thunders (33% of the loses of theutates thunders). For sure you would still have 10 unused bandages in this case.

  • Cage
    Animals in oasis can be tamed with them and brought to your village, where they will help in defending it. No battle will take place, but the animals will be captured
    This item is stackable.
    Small FAQ regarding cages:
    Do cages work with player's villages as they work with unoccupied villages (oases)?
    - No, because the cages are meant only to work with "normal" troops. The troops in a player's village are reinforcement and cannot be caught.
    How can I use cages?
    - Just equip them on your Hero and send the Hero to attack an oasis.
    Does my Hero fight when attacking an oasis with cages equipped if there are also accompanying troops?
    - No. No fight takes places as long as you have cages equipped on your Hero.
    If I release the animals in my village, will I get the cages back?
    - No.
    Do I have to feed the animals I caged?
    - No, they do not eat your crop.
    Which animals get caught?
    - It takes 1 of each from left to right, if there are no more animals to the right, it will start from leftmost again. That it will do until all cages are used or animals end.
      Example:
      You have 14 cages and oasis has 2 rats, 6 spiders, 3 wild boars and 30 elephants.
      You will get:
        1st check: 1 rat, 1 spider, 1 wild boar, 1 elephant.
        2nd check: 1 rat, 1 spider, 1 wild boar, 1 elephant.
        3rd check: 1 spider, 1 wild boar, 1 elephant. (there are no more rats to cage)
        4th check: 1 spider, 1 elephant. (there are no more wild boars to cage)
        5th check: 1 spider (14 cages used, end)
      Total you caged: 2 rats, 5 spiders, 3 wild boars and 4 elephants.
