Special items

Using special items, you can increase the level of Aesir, remove and keep runes and gems, yield resources safely, find out the duration of a Peace Treaty in an enemy Town, and much more.

Soul Shard

This item is needed for enhancing Aesir, learning secret Knowledge in the Oracle, and upgrading buildings between levels 36 and 40, as well as for training tier VIII warriors and improving their stats in the Valkyries' Citadel.

You can get Soul Shards:

  • For killing enemy warriors from foreign Kingdoms
  • For destroying neutral troops that defend Towers of Fury
  • For destroying troops led by jötunns during a Stronghold siege
  • For killing Island Guards during Holmgang

The number of all the Soul Shards that you have is displayed in the Resources section of the My Items tab.

Don't try to obtain Soul Shards in ways that violate the game rules. We will remove all items that were obtained via cheating. If you've already spent some or all of them, your Soul Shard balance will become negative, and we will impose a restriction on your account. This restriction won't let you use Soul Shards until you've earned a sufficient quantity of them fairly and restored a positive balance.

Star Shard

This item is required for upgrading Town Skins, which give you bonuses and allow you to change your Town's appearance on the Global Map. Read more about Skins in the Town Skins section.

To get Star Shards, you need to complete Quests and participate in Competitions. You can also find these items in Hero's Coffrets or purchase them as part of Bank offers.

The number of all the Star Shards you have is displayed in the My Items tab, Resources section.

This item is necessary for removing gems from equipment. In this case, the gem is saved in the Cache and may be used again. To remove a gem of a specific class, you need the Diamond Knife item of the same class or higher. Using a Legendary Diamond Knife, you will be able to remove and save a gem of any class.

Every Jarl who starts the game receives one Simple and one Usual Diamond Knife. The items disappear after you apply them.

You can purchase Diamond Knives in the Item Store using Gold. You can view how many items you already have in the My Items tab, in the Bonuses section.

Guard Payoff

This is a special item that allows you to find out the duration of the Peace Treaty in other Jarls' Towns or the Domain Guard in resource locations.

You can purchase the item in the Item Store for Gold, in the Clan Store for Loyalty Points, and as part of Bank offers. You also have a chance to get it by attacking Uber Invaders.

To purchase and/or apply the item, you just need to select a Town with an activated Peace Treaty or a resource location with an activated Domain Guard on the Global Map and hit the "Guard Payoff" button in the window that appears.

After you have applied the item, a message showing the start and end time of the Peace Treaty or Domain Guard will arrive in your game mail. This information is accurate at the moment you use the item, but it may change depending on the actions of the enemy Jarl.

The number of all the items you have is displayed in the My Items tab, Military section. The Guard Payoff item cannot be activated from the Item Store.

Domain Guard

This is a special item that allows your warriors to safely yield resources in any resource location (including Invaders' and Uber Invaders' Lairs, and Ghost Shelters).

To activate an item, select the resource location occupied by your troops and hit the "Domain Guard" button.

You can also activate the protection of a location in the Garrisons tab of the Shrine of Odin by selecting the troop that is yielding resources.

Domain Guard items can have a duration of either one hour or three hours. You can earn them for personal and Clan achievements in certain global Competitions.

You can get Domain Guard items for personal achievements only if your Kingdom wins, but for Clan achievements, you can get them regardless of the Competition result.

If you apply several items, their durations are added together. If you activate the 1-Hour Domain Guard item, and then the 3-Hour Domain Guard item, the location where your troops are yielding resources will be protected for 4 hours.

You can apply this item only when your troops are in the resource location. If your troop leaves the protected location (if yielding is finished or if you recall your troops early), the Domain Guard item will stop working.

The number of all the items you have is displayed in the My Items tab, Military section.

Task Refresher

You can use these items to refresh the list of Personal, Clan, and Premium Tasks.

All Personal, Clan, and Premium Tasks are refreshed once every six hours, but you can speed this up by using the Personal Task Refresher, Clan Task Refresher, and Premium Task Refresher items. Tasks of the same category are given at random.

Task Refresher items are available in the Item Store for Gold, in the Clan Store for Loyalty Points, and as part of Bank offers. In addition, you can receive them as a reward for visiting the game daily and attacking Invaders/Uber Invaders.

There's no point in using the Clan Task Refresher item if you are not a Clan member. The Premium Task Refresher item also shouldn't be applied if you haven't activated VIP status.
