Overview[ | ]

In regular singleplayer and multiplayer games, there are 7 different approaches to achieve victory in Northgard. If a player achieves a victory condition in a team game, their whole team is victorious.
Except for the three last ones, each victory type can be activated or deactivated when creating a game.

Once victorious, the title "King of Northgard" is gained. 

General Win Conditions[ | ]

The classic approaches to defeat your opponent.
Depending on the map size and the gamemode (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, FFA...), some can be easier or harder to achieve.

Dominationvic Domination[ | ]

Well suited clans for this victory :
Fenrir Fenrir
Sváfnir Sváfnir
Nidhogg Nidhogg
Brundr and Kaelinn Brundr and Kaelinn

The most common path in team duels : Destroy all other players' Town Halls and become the master of Northgard.

Players aiming for this victory will focus on warfare by having a large, powerful and well-sustained Warband Warband. They will attempt to kill their opponent by razing their territories until they can access their Town Hall.

Unlike the other victories, the Domination victory cannot be removed when creating a custom game. Therefore, one must be always ready for an attack.

Fame Fame Victory focuses on creating a powerful economy by upgrading numerous buildings and colonizing more areas than usual. It is usually faster than wisdom victory and can sometimes be easier to achieve than domination, but it needs a lot of Food Food, resources and defensive stances.

This victory is more frequent in FFA, 2v2v2 and 2v2v2v2.

Sváfnir Sváfnir is not eligible for this victory.

  • The fourth blessing (aka Ancestral Knowledge Ancestral Knowledge), is unlocked with the 15th discovered knowledge.
  • To be discovered, each knowledge needs a certain amount of Lore Lore higher than the precedent.

This victory condition focuses on the ability to produce a lot of Lore Lore throughout the game.

The game allows for an additional "map special" win condition. If activated, one of the three followings will be generated randomly with its related special area at the center of the map.
