Leveling and unlocking new effects can have a massive impact on your gameplay. 30% combat strength increase for axes, light cavalry, and rams, 15% more resources, or 30% more defense. You have the choice if you use the bot to train your Paladin fully automatically. The bot always chooses the first option – which is the most lucrative – and sends the Paladin off again as soon as he is finished.
You can activate the feature very quickly. Just right-click on one of your villages and select “Toggle Paladin”. Now activate the checkbox “do Paladin” in the main window, and that’s it. If you want to learn more about the skill system, you can find more information here.
In general, I recommend using the Paladin to farm players in the beginning. By attacking players directly, your Paladin can farm many critical resources at the beginning. If you then have a larger army of light cavalry, the results will be secondary, and it is worth training the Paladin 24/7 to unlock the high bonuses.
