Military Experience provides bonuses via xp points from defeating every enemy. When reaching 500 military experience, you’ll get to choose between 3 different military paths: The Tactician Path, the Guardian Path or the Conqueror Path.

Military PathsEdit

Each of the Military Paths features 3 different unlockable skills. Be careful: once you’ve chosen a path, you won’t be able to change it, so planning will be very important!

The third and last level of each path should be quite hard to reach as it requires a total of 3000 xp (500 for the first one, 1500 for the second).
