Rise of Kingdoms city hall upgrade requirements and designs

Rise of Kingdoms city hall upgrade requirements and designs

Like many strategists who've walked the path of base-building games, you probably want to know what the deal is with Rise of Kingdoms, and all of the secrets within. The game offers all the familiar features of such mobile strategy games, but today we're going to talk about the Rise of Kingdoms City Hall, and everything that you need to know about it; from upgrading times and costs to some of the best unique designs. 

What is the City Hall in RoK?

The City Hall is the most important building in the game, to say the least. This structure will dictate the maximum level of every other building in your city, and so you need to make sure that you're always leveling it up whenever possible.

This building is the one most enemies will try to destroy whenever they attack your base (or anyone else's for that matter), so it's important to have troops trained in order to keep it safe.

There are also some benefits you'll get whenever you upgrade it, such as one-time rewards (based on the level of the City Hall), and access to new buildings and decorations.

Important info

  • All of the timers shown above are before the construction speed bonus effects granted by the construction speed research - with full upgrades, you will have around 7-8 days to complete Castle Hall level 25. 
  • You can buy one Master's Blueprint for 2500 Gems - if you don't already have one, make sure you have enough Gems.
  • Before you use ANY Speedups, make sure you ask for help from your Alliance - it's going to save you a ton of Speedups! 

Rise of Kingdoms city hall layout

City Hall designs - are they worth it? 

There are several unique designs for the City Hall which can be unlocked either through Gems and premium methods or by reaching certain levels with the City Hall. The unique designs will grant additional buffs, so if you ever decide to change your classic one for another, you can check the available ones by tapping on the City Hall, then on the tower button. 

There is no particularly best or worst design, since the buffs they grant are all varied - some offer troop defense, while others buff the cavalry's attack. You need to take all these elements into consideration whenever you decide to change the CH design (if you're not doing it solely for aesthetic reasons). 

We hope that you found our RoK city hall guide useful! If you're not sure about what RoK commanders you should pick, or what's the best civilization in the game, consult our guides!
