Evony: The King’s Return is a popular, strategic role-playing mobile game that is set in medieval times. Players can take on the role of a lord or a lady to build their own empire from the ground up.
Since it is based on the classic video game, Evony, you will enjoy similar mechanics, content, and features in the mobile game. In the game, you will discover events and activities that you can participate in, but you first have to select your monarch.
To make progress in the game, you have to complete quests and solve various puzzles, which are essentially the levels of the game. Therefore, you have to complete a puzzle before you can move on to the next level.
What is a monarch?
A monarch is a character that enables players to control their city and troops. You cannot play the game without creating or selecting a monarch.
Though the monarch will not physically walk around your keep, you can equip them with gear, manage their talents, and increase their level. All of these factors can impact your gameplay significantly.
You can access your monarch’s profile by selecting the character icon in the upper left corner of the game. Here, you will be able to equip them with gear, increase their level, and discover your keep’s details.
Evony: Monarch talent
In your monarch’s profile, you will see a “Talent” tab, indicated by a book. As your monarch levels up, they will receive talent points which can be spent in any of the talent trees to unlock additional features. Every level your monarch reaches contains different talents.
The following table outlines some of the levels and their corresponding talents with a description of each:
|2||Offering||It increases the monarch experience and prestige from offering|
|18||Stamina Regeneration||Your monarch’s stamina regeneration speed is increased|
|30||Fatal Strike||This talent allows you to turn a certain proportion of enemies’ wounded troops into dead when attacking them|
|40||Monster Hunting||Your troop’s attack will increase when you attack monsters|
Allegedly, how you play the game determines which talents you should choose. This is because the talents provide buffs and abilities.
So, an offensive player who enjoys the player-versus-player gaming mode will select different talents than a defensive player.
Even though you can select any talents for your monarch, it is advisable that you use this as a guideline. However, you first have to decide on a gaming style before choosing your talents.

|Level||Building, farming and boss running||Defensive player-versus-player||Offensive player-versus-player|

Furthermore, you can attack other players while building your own empire from the ground up.
Before you can participate in all the activities, you have to create and select a monarch, who will rule your empire. Your monarch will receive talent points when they reach a new level, which can be used to activate additional buffs and features.
