The latest Rise of Empires expansion has been finally released, and I can’t say how excited I am! Not only does it add a whole new continent to the game with its own unique storyline, but there are also new buildings, events, and units. In this article, I’ll be going over the requirements for upgrading your castle to level 30 in the new expansion.

Now I must say that since the expansion is still new, the requirements might be subject to change, and I currently only have the requirements for castle levels 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29, but I will update this article as soon as I have the requirements for castle level 30 as well.

Rise of Empires Castle Upgrade Requirements

One of the most game-changing additions in this latest expansion is the ability to upgrade your castle all the way to level 30. However, this will be a long and arduous task, especially if you’re struggling to get more resources. There is also a new consumable called Orichalcum, which is required for upgrading your castle up to level 30 and all your other buildings as well. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you start stockpiling Orichalcum as soon as possible.

Upgrade Requirements for Castle level 25

Castle level 25 is where your journey as a veteran player begins. It used to be the highest level available, and it comes with a set of requirements. In order to upgrade your Castle to Level 25, besides the resources and the population number I’ll be sharing below, you must also upgrade the Tavern and Alliance Hall to level 24.


Upgrade Requirements for Castle level 26

Once you gather all the resources to upgrade your Rise of Empires castle from level 25 to 26, you will also need a lot of building speed-ups because the duration of your upgrade is around 24 days, and 17 hours, quite a long time. In terms of castle design (the outside), there are no significant changes, but you will have a lot more available space in your city because of the extra walls that are added, and the river.

Upgrade Requirements for Castle level 27

Upgrading the Castle from level 26 to level 27, will require more effort besides the basic resource requirements. You will now need to upgrade some buildings to level 26 as well. As for the Orichalcum required amount, you will need over 10,000 Orichalcum for upgrading your castle to level 27.

Resource Upgrade Requirements:


Upgrade Requirements for Castle level 28

Please keep in mind that the following requirements are taken from a castle having the hero Castle Builder with his levels and skills maxed out, which reduces significantly the total resource cost for building upgrades. So if you don’t have the castle builder development hero, the resource requirement and the total duration of the building upgrade process will be different in your case.

Building Requirements:

Upgrade Requirements for Castle level 29

To upgrade your castle from level 28 to 29 you will need over 14,000 Orichalcum. A population of 600,000 is also required, as well as the Marble Storage IV level 4, which will require you a lot of resources. Once you meet all the requirements it will take you over 70 days to complete the upgrade (of course you can use speed ups..a ton of it).

Building Requirements:

Final Thoughts

As I said the guide is still in progress and I will add more info as soon as I have the info. In any case, considering the small amount of Orichalcum we get per day from events, it will take a while to get the required amount and see some level 29 castles, so start stockpiling now! I hope this guide was helpful, and if so, feel free to share it with your friends! Happy leveling!
