On 3rd April, Krafton released the first update for Road to Valor: Empires which introduced new training modes, alliance settings, and more free rewards. This latest update also brought forth new weekly special chests that will be made available to users at a discount. Additionally, the developers also announced a new in-game event called Gold Rush.
Here’s everything you need to know about Gold Rush and the other changes brought to the game via the 1.14 update.
What is the Gold Rush event in Road to Valor: Empires’ latest update?
The Gold Rush in Road to Valor: Empires is an eight-day in-game event where players have the opportunity to win extra gold coins in one-on-one [1:1] battles by simply destroying the enemy towers. Players will be granted 200 Gold coins for every enemy tower they destroy in a battle and 600 Gold coins for destroying all three enemy towers in the game.
The start date of the event was notably on 3rd April, the same day the update was rolled out. The Gold Rush event is scheduled to continue till 10th April. The developers said that there are a total of 20,000 gold coins up for grabs through this in-game event.
Gold is an in-game currency that allows you to level up your garrison. When you enter into a battle and essentially win with your deck featuring a Guardian, you are awarded trophies (works like rank points) and gold coins. The amount of gold coins does not remain constant and it keeps changing as you gain levels or according to the battle that you recently fought.
