Civilization: Reign of Power – Beginners Guide and Tips for New Players

In this beginner guide for Civilization: Reign of Power, we will be mentioning some of our personally observed tips and tricks that will be crucial to many new players as they make progress in the game. Since the game is a new take on the already popular MMOSLG genre, many players might be confused what to do as they create their account and start their progression. The tutorial of the game is quite lacking lustre in our opinion and does not depict a straight-forward path to players as to how they can get stronger. Certainly, the opinions and tips mentioned in this beginner’s guide might be irrelevant as the game gets updated or when it is globally released. We will also be giving an explanation for some of the basic systems of the game that are very important for players to understand in order to progress efficiently. 

Choosing the Right Civilization

Choosing your civilization will play an important role in how your journey in Civilization: Reign of Power is shaped. That is strictly due to the fact that each civilization has its own pros and cons. Each civilization also has its own set of commanders that they acknowledge and like. Majorly, players should choose a civilization that they relate with personally as each of them are quite balanced between the areas of Domination, Culture, and Science. Some civilizations like the Indian one is good in science and promote more Science while another civilization like the Chinese one promotes Domination and has a strong army troop. However, that is not to say a Science-based civilization is weaker than a Domination-based civilization or that a Domination-based civilization is less mindful than a Science-based civilization. It’s just a way of measuring certain factors like Army Strength and troops morale boost when we say a particular civilization is based towards domination. Similarly crafting time, great works curation, benefit the civilization that is based towards science. In general, here are all the civilizations available in the game along with their traits:

Understanding the Summoning System

Civilization: Reign of Power is a gacha game as well where players are tasked with summoning whole great people or fragments of great people. Great people are those commanders or famous personalities that have been made popular over the history of that civilization for their notable feats and discoveries. They are ready to be summoned once again and offer their expertise to you, the new leader of your civilization. Keep in mind that just like civilizations, great people also come under different civilizations. Moreover, you cannot recruit the leaders of any civilization. Players can summon for different rarities of great people at different rates depending on their base rarity. The gacha system of Civilization: Reign of Power is a mixed one where there exists a combination of whole characters, fragments of characters, and items. Players can get the whole characters at the lowest probability, fragments of the characters at a higher probability, and items at the highest probability.

Each great person available to be recruited has multiple different ranks under which they are placed. The ranks start from E being the lowest while A being the highest. The higher the rank, the lower the probability of obtaining them. Players can currently recruit great people on 2 distinct summoning banners:

  • Normal Recruitment Banner – Players can recruit only E-ranked Great people through the help of this banner along with some items. A Normal Recruitment scroll is used to make summons on this banner. Players can either make a single summon or summon 10 times at a time.
  • Advanced Recruitment Banner – Players can recruit A-ranked to E-ranked Great people through the help of this banner along with some items. An Advanced Recruitment scroll is used to make summons on this banner. Players can either make a single summon or summon 10 times at a time. Players can also make summons using their Gems on the banner.

Here are the different summoning currencies used in Civilization: Reign of Power:

  • Normal Recruitment Scroll – These scrolls are used to make summons on the Normal Recruitment Banner. They are generally abundantly available through completing in-game quests, exploring nearby treasures, completing an event, etc.
  • Advanced Recruitment Scroll – These scrolls are used to make summons on the Advanced Recruitment Banner. They are available quite scarcely through in-game maintenance rewards, special events, completing an era, etc.

Understanding the Currencies

Currencies and their use are an important topic to cover while playing Civilization: Reign of Power. The game is an MMOSLG that features multiple different currencies with each of them being used in a specific or multiple set of systems. Keep in mind that a majority of these currencies will be thrown at you in abundance when you start the game. If you’re not careful about your spending habits, you will soon run out of your premium currencies which will make the game harder to progress through. Here are the 2 main generic currencies that are used at almost every stage of the game:

Civilization: Reign of Power – Beginners Guide and Tips for New Players

  • Gold – Gold is a premium currency that can only be acquired through upgrading your city hall building. Gold is given as part of a tax that you charge to your kingdom. Hence, the higher the number of civilians, the higher will be your tax collections which result in a higher amount of gold. Gold is also given as part of a reputation bonus for your kingdom. Players can purchase city buffs to protect their city or buff their city/troops using their collected Gold. Keep in mind that a buff can only be active for a certain period of time and not infinitely. We would generally advise players to avoid this as their Gold reserves will be very low at the start of the game while the buffs cost a lot to maintain. Moreover, the players are already protected when they have just started the game for a set period of 2 weeks. During this time, players cannot be attacked or cannot attack other players.

  • Gems – Gems are one of the most premium currencies that are available only through select and rare methods. Firstly, they are given to players by the developers in case of emergency maintenance, bug fixes, or general patch updates through the in-game mailbox. Players can also get them by completing in-game quests such as era expansion quests, daily missions, and achievements. Players can use their collected Gems to purchase Summons in the Advanced Recruitment Banner.

Missions

Missions play an important part in your day-to-day schedule of playing Civilization: Reign of Power. As the game is a mobile MMOSLG, there is always those time-consuming daily missions that players have to complete in order to gain some daily source of resources. These resources are extremely important to collect as they contain tons of food, gold, a book of experience, etc as part of rewards. Currently, we will only be taking a look at the daily missions as you will majorly be taking a part in completing them every day. Here are the Daily Missions and the rewards associated with them:
