Rise of Kingdoms

The Karuak Ceremony

The Karuak Ceremony
Rise of Kingdoms Guide

Last Updated:

This is an update to the game version 1.0.10 and introduces a new event, The Karuak Ceremony to Rise of Kingdoms.

Note: There have been major changes to The Karuak Ceremony in September 2019 and now it costs 100 AP to challenge each level, and now there are only 50 levels and not 100. With boss battles every 5 levels instead of 10.

It is a 3 day event intended to encourage teamwork between governors within an alliance. During the event you can use action points to summon Karuak challengers of increasing strength. You can battle solo, or via a rally with members of your alliance.

Once an alliance's members complete a certain level of these challenges an Alliance Boss challenge will become unlocked.


We are playing this ourselves in order to create our Rise of Kingdoms guide and although there are multiple difficulty levels to choose from when you start the Karuak Ceremony, you only select the Easy difficulty level. Once you complete the Karuak Ceremony on easy level, then you can opt for the next level of difficulty the next time the Karuak Ceremony event takes place.

For each level of difficulty there are 50 levels to get through (formerly 100). As you progress through the levels, the battles get harder and harder. However you should be able to send in multiple commanders to help you defeat any that are too difficult to do alone.

Don't forget in this event you can also ask your alliance to assist you with certain battles, and make a rally.

Rallies are great to participate in to help other alliance members and there is also the possibility of bagging a heap of XP for your commanders especially if the rallies are against the higher levels.

It's recommended that you take the opportunity to get extra XP by using all of your marches to hit every 5th level of Karuak barbarians as they give substantially more XP. You should also take advantage of XP boosting runes and use commanders that give extra XP for barbarian battles.


There rewards for getting to the higher levels in the Karuak Ceremony are great, especially if you get to Level 50! With tons of gems, tomes of knowledge, speed ups and resource chests to be had. You could also get a gold star and statues too.

Unlocking Higher Difficulty Levels

When you first take part in this event, you will only be able to participate in Easy mode. If you manage to complete all 50 levels, then next time, the next higher level will be unlocked and available for you to compete in. And so on... Complete all 50 levels of the challenge and next time, the next level will become unlocked.

Tips and Strategy

If you intend to get to level 50 and complete the Karuak Ceremony on Easy level then you will need:

1. Loads of Action Point Recovery - I'm talking thousands

2. Three strong army teams - By that I mean about 300,000 level 2 or 3 troops and six strong commanders

3. Activate 12 or 24 hour enhanced attack buff and the 4 hour basic army expansion. This will strengthen your troops and allow your commander to attack with a bigger army. This will save you action points as each commander will now be more efficient.

4. Work out which of your commanders use the least action points for each barbarian attack and use that one as the main commander throughout the event.

5. In many of the early rounds you will only need to send one army, so with that army buffed and using the commander that uses the least action points is the most efficient way forward - assuming that commander has also been leveled up!

6. Lohar or another commander that has been leveled up in Peacekeeping Talent is likely to be the best commander to use.

7. An alternative method is to use more action points and attack with more commanders (even if you don't need to) the idea being is that they will also benefit from the great deal of XP that you can gain from defeating some of these barbarians.

8. Rally - Use rallies when you need to so your alliance will help you with your attacks. Also, look out for rallies from your alliance members, it is a great way to pick up Commander XP, and help out your mates.

9. Elite Karuak - Every 5 levels you'll get a boss battle, there is a lot more EXP to be gained by beating these bosses, so it's a good idea to hit these guys that appear on level 5, 10, 15 etc... with all five of your commander teams, that way, on these special boss battles, you'll get the increased XP in for the maximum number of commanders.

Ok, still want to go ahead... The initial levels are pretty easy, but things to make it easier once you progress are:

1. Clear the vicinity of other barbarians first so they don't get involved in your battles with Karuak barbs.

2. Stay attentive so that you always have at least one commander engaged in battle, as one commander dies, when they get back to base, send them back into base while your others are still fighting.

This uses up tons of action points, but the XP you get for all participating commanders and the rewards at the end of the event are worth it.
