Hall of Wisdom: Warlords On Watch

Can't rest at night, always fearing that the enemy will tear your Realm apart while you rest? Fear no more.

For your Warlords will be 'On Watch', so you can take your well-deserved break.

Defend your realm with 'On Watch' feature

Warlords can be sent to Towers or Portals with the 'On Watch' feature.


Warlords that are sent to a Tower or Portal 'On Watch' will be accessible for the Realm Leaders, allowing them to utilize your Warlords for defense only, while you are absent. The moment a Warlord arrives at a Tower or Portal with the mission 'On Watch', his status changes into 'On Watch'.

While this status is active, all Realm Leaders will have the power to move those Warlords and their assigned troops to other portals or towers within your Realm. However, Warlords 'On Watch' can be used only for support missions and it is not possible to attack other players or NPC targets with them.

Mission Details - How does it work in practice?

  • Warlords sent on an 'On Watch' mission to a tower will approach the tower with their regular speed.
  • Warlords sent to an active Portal will appear there instantly, without having to march all the way.
  • While a Warlord is “On Watch” at a Portal, the Warlord owner can still manage the Warlord and fill up troop slots.
  • If a Warlord is already located at the desired target, his status will just change to 'On Watch' instantly.
  • A map pin can be used to mark a target where player should send Warlords 'On Watch'.
  • Realm Leaders will be able to see the Warlords 'On Watch', and their map indicators.
  • Realm Leaders can then send the Warlords to new support missions and cancel those missions again.

Cancellation of 'On Watch' mission

The 'On Watch' status of a Warlord is cancelled, and the full rights return to the original owner when:

  • The owner of the Warlord cancels the mission
  • The Warlord is defeated and flees
  • The target does not exist anymore


If a Warlord is already on a mission, that mission can not be cancelled anymore. When the owner of a Warlord cancels an active 'On Watch' mission, the Warlord will continue and finish the mission before returning back to the owner.


Keep in mind that your Warlords will not remain 'On Watch' forever! Once they are defeated, your Realm Leaders will lose control over them. So, take some breaks, but don’t forget - your Realm needs you.

  • Shouldnt it be possible to recall warlords on watch to portals and ark? sometimes its better recall WL on towers to send it somewhere else, just having WL on watch on far places isnt of much using when the enemies can see the on watch feature and just avoid towers nearby.

  • Let's say you are a leader and you send another player's warlords on a mission to a new tower either immediately or on a short time delay - can you cancel that? If you were sending your own, not on watch, warlords, you have the option to cancel mission from your warlord list. Is there an option to cancel a "on watch" warlord mission? Where would you find that option?

  • Hi Sirona

    Let's say you are a leader and you send another player's warlords on a mission to a new tower either immediately or on a short time delay - can you cancel that?


    Yes the leader can cancel the mission. According to Dev Diary: Warlords On Watch:

    • Realm Leaders can then send the Warlords to new support missions and cancel those missions again.

    If you were sending your own, not on watch, warlords, you have the option to cancel mission from your warlord list. Is there an option to cancel a "on watch" warlord mission? Where would you find that option?

    There is an option to cancel "on watch" mission and you can cancel it from the warlords list

  • Thanks for the reply, however, when I go to the warlords list, I only see my own warlords, not the ones on watch. I know I can take my own warlords off watch from my warlords list, but I want to know how to cancel a mission that I send other players' warlords who are on watch. For example, I send two on watch warlords from tower A to tower B with a 10 minute delay. I want to stop that... where do I go to find the cancel button when none of my own warlords are involved? Any direction you can provide will be appreciated.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding

    As far as I know, there is no way to cancel the on watch mission of other players' WLs

    I didn't find any option before to cancel the mission
