Game of Sultans

Getting Started

Getting Started
Game of Sultans Guide

When you play the game the first time, it will pitch you in to the plot as the successor of the ottoman empire -- just as it tries to climb in power. Character creation includes some basic pick of character looks and some name personalization that will be shown throughout the game as you progress (conversations with your advisors and with enemies alike).

Since the game is mainly based on the ottoman empire, you can just assume that the whole motif of the game reflects relevant historical references. Your task though is what counts most. As the newly appointed Sultan of the empire, you'll have to prove your wits to properly run the empire, amass a huge army, and be caught between a power struggle against the byzantine empire. Gather and train the strongest warlords, win your battles, and prove that you are worthy to lead the middle age world. That said, the general objective is for you to progressively increase your overall power.

Among the most important ones to get familiar with is the game's main hub. Here you get to access the different activities to do in the game, and fiddle around with your consorts, viziers, and different stuff that will help you improve your power. There are modifications too like the need to find consorts that will benefit your viziers for their additional boosts and bonuses (to attributes). There are equipment sets too that basically lifts the cap limit of your viziers' the maximum level (default at 100) - which when accomplished, will give you the opportunity to get them to leveled up for another 50 tiers. On the Interface section of this guide, we've listed the different buttons you see in the main hub, along with their appropriate function.

Additionally, you'll have to deal with imperial decisions that will help you gain allies, resources, and amass a greater number of troops to fight your conquests. During your first few hours in the game, it will gradually pitch to you its different sections to let you take part in the different activities you can do, as well as be able to let you familiarize each of their functions. Game of Sultans will showcase its in-game activities in succession as:

Performing Battles / Conquests (Campaign)

This is where battles are played (or at least are auto-played) and gives you the idea what you need in order to succeed in a siege. The basic rule is to send an army that has a greater overall power rating and greater volume than that of the enemy. There are several tiers of enemies in a single siege too so make sure you have enough troops to finish an entire run.

Boss Battles

Every chapter has a boss on its final leg. Boss battles are fought differently than normal sieges. The idea here is to train your "Military" proficient viziers and strengthen them so that they will stand a chance against a one-on-one battle with the enemy leader. During the tutorial phase, it will show you too that you only get one chance at the battle - and will take a reset before you can use the same vizier that lost to a particular enemy boss. And with that instanced loss, you'll be introduced to;

Managing and Improving your Viziers

Viziers are like your heroes in this game. Basically, they help you run the empire in terms of imparting critical help on your Military, Research, Politics, and Prestige. Depending on which ones you have and how much upgrade you do to them, they will basically impart you with collective increase in the basic functions as such:

Military - mainly affects battles. The higher they have, the higher overall power rating your army will have.
Research - mainly affects trade levies - which generally brings up the value of gold you receive every time you collect for Gold levies inside the "Imperial Parliament". Gold is used to upgrade your Viziers.
Politics - mainly affects grain levies - which generally brings up the value of grains you receive every time you collect for Grain levies inside the "Imperial Parliament". Grain is an additional currency needed when you recruit soldiers.
Prestige - mainly affects soldier levies - which generally brings up the value of soldiers you receive every time you collect for Soldier levies inside the "Imperial Parliament". Collected soldiers are used in conquests as the value of your actual army.


Here you'll find consorts that will help improve your vizier's basic attributes, and have them bear your heirs - which in return, can be used to improve your overall power too, or arrange them to marry other sultan's heirs to increase your influence. Consorts, Heirs, and later some rankings/position involved in it too will help you improve on your attributes in battle.

Other in-game mini games

Some additional mini games are introduced as a variation -- which will nonetheless help you gain some great rewards like gold and soldiers. One of the first mini-game you'll be introduced with is the Barbarian Challenge. Performing in the challenge requires some stamina - which gradually replenishes over a period of time. the mini-game itself has tiers of achievement - which rewards additional items when reached, and its own store -- an exchange pool of items that you can obtain upon earning its special currency (basically from doing the challenge itself).

Then there is also the "Frontier" which requires you to send your viziers to go hunting - and return with rewards after a certain time duration - the mini-game is opened at a server-dictated time and is usually indicated when you go to the "Frontier" section. Each Vizier has 1 battle attempt everyday - and the final player who deals the final hit and occupies the fortress will earn abundant rewards.

Learn the Function of Imperial Parliament

This is where you basically gather your resources and some important in-game items. Here you'll see two NPCs; Ahmelek and Hocas. Ahmelek will lead you get you to your levies where you basically collect your in-game resources like Gold, Grain, and Soldiers. Hocas on the other hand will help you deal with Imperial Affairs. There are always two options inside the affairs - choosing YES will earn conclusive rewards items like gold, grains, or tomes (used to improve your viziers' attributes), choosing NO will earn you Sultan Experience Points.

Perform Quests and Collect Achievements

If you try to grow your power in the game, you'll pretty much be focused on performing quests as they are instanced by the game. Whenever you try to accomplish what is tasked of you, you'll always get some useful item in return -- which in the first few days of the game, will help boost you to grow your army exponentially. Some red colored dot indicators in the main hub will tell you that something new that is unchecked is there which is more likely telling you that there is an un-obtained reward item waiting for you.

Unlock Further Content (other game sections like Arena, Feast, Masquerade, etc.)

As you try to perform the quests delivered to you, you'll soon learn that there's a lot to unlock in the game and shall only be available when you reach or meet certain requirements in the game. For the most part, all basic sections in the game will be opened up for you when you reach Sultan Level 5.
