In the Pre-Dark World, “special” buildings now known as Auxiliary Buildings stood out, served their purpose, and typically was a game-changer upon release night. Whether the building was a home for your Monster Champions or increasing your Troop Capacity, they become irrelevant over time and sometimes too quickly. However, in the Dark World, they make their comeback one way or another.
In this guide, we will cover:
- The particular building’s purpose
- What type of prints are required, and how many
- What changes Auxiliary buildings make in the Dark World
- Auxiliary building guides to continue in the Dark World.
- What to read next?

Disclaimer – Please keep in mind:
- Some charts may be missing due to sever one’s release containing massive jumps in instant levels or jumping to Dark World Auxiliary Building requirements.
- If there is no Auxiliary Building Chart and you’d like to fill in the gaps, feel free! It would be beneficial to the community, and extremely grateful.
Make sure to forward it to one of the admins to add it to the Hub rooms and feature it in this guide!

The Mythic Forge allows you to:
- View your Gear Set Bonus
- Upgrade your Gear quality from basic to legendary
- Power up your gear beyond legendary
- Increase your Set Gear Leveling
In the first tab, you will be able to view your Gear and its status. When selecting the Gear, you can then see the Gear Set bonuses it provides and each piece’s requirements.
In the ‘Upgrade Gear Quality’ section, you have the opportunity to increase your Gear’s quality from Basic (grey) to Legendary by using particular items to increase per piece per level, which in the Dark World, is known as Sigils of Quality.
Once your Gear has reached Legendary status, you will find some use in the ‘Power Up Legendary Gear’ tab, which allows you to enhance additional bonuses on each piece using the Power Up Material assigned to that Gear. In the Dark World, this will be known as Power Up Material.
Gear Set Leveling enables you to grant additional bonuses by leveling them up with particular experience points. This feature is the same concept as if you were leveling your Hero but for your Gear. Set Gear Leveling bonus requires a minimum Legendary Gear from each Equipment type for you to level up the gear itself, such as the Helmet, Footwear, Body Armor, Weapon, and ONE Accessory.
You do not need all three accessories from that Gear Set to trigger. If Gear XP is required, you can accumulate it from hitting the Realm Boss or attacking your opponent.

The Elemacy Hall allows you to convert your Core Troops into Elementals using Troops and a type of Elemental Essence.
The building also provides Troop Attack bonuses maxing at 200,000%, while gaining 200,000% HP when reaching level 16 before Dark stats arrive.

The Magitek Converter was initially released to help convert Resources, Speedups, Blueprints, and Tomes.
- Convert to T4 Resources
- Convert to Exalted Speed Ups
- Convert to Royal Blueprints and Scrolls (Citadel 31 to 40)
- Convert tp Exalted Blueprints and Scrolls (Citadel 41 to 50)
- Convert to Divine Blueprints and Scrolls (Citadel 51 to 60)
In the pre-dark world, the Magitek Converter may be challenging to justify at the time. Still, when the Dark World approaches, more so Verstael’s Hero release, the Magitek Converter will become one of the most advantageous buildings in your Empire.

Mercenary Fighting Pits
Like the Elemancy Hall, the Mercenary Fighting Pits are a home for your Mercenaries. When Monster Troops are released, this particular building will hold them also.
The building also increases your Mercenary Training Queue and Troop Capacity.
Keywords to indicate
Training Queue is the number of Troops you can train at once.
Troop Capacity is the maxed amount of Troops you can have in total.
At level 8, you will unlock the Mercenary healing Queue, which allows you to heal an abundance of Mercenaries with Gold and Resources.
Before the Dark World arrives, you can reach a 150,000 Mercenary Training Queue along with a Mercenary Capacity at 1.2M.
After the Dark World, as the Mercenary Pit grows, your Mercenary Training Queue will still be applicable.

The Oracle Temple allows you to craft a variety of passive permanent boosts using crafting materials.
The permanent boosts provide all types of stats and efficiencies for buildings, research, heroes, troops, etc.
In the Dark World, the Oracle Temple will continue to strive and provide additional benefits, which you can find in the Auxiliary Buildings 2.0 guide.

The Monster Pen is the ultimate home for your Monster Champions (NOT MONSTER TROOPS!). With the initial release, you are limited to the Monsters you can have, and it was based on stars.
Keywords to indicate

In the Proving Grounds building, you can use Elixir to hit Monsters to earn older Gear items, Currency, and so on.
While this building has not been instrumental in the pre-dark world, there eventually are events that will take place in the Proving Grounds. However, newer ones will require different Elixir. With that in mind, be sure to stock, if you can, for hourly events and whatnot.

The Arcanaeum building, the Secret University that took forever and a day to unlock, allows you to research, craft, and apply temporary consumable Enhancements to your Gear.
The first tab is where you can enchant your Gear. Some of the enhancements are only permitted on particular pieces.
The ‘Research Enhancements’ tab empowers your stats on the enhancements. This is exceptionally vital to do and is a game-changer in the pre-dark world.
Tip: Monster and Dungeon related enhancements are still applicable in the Dark World and become increasingly difficult to acquire.
The last tab is an overview of your Regent inventory.
The Command Center, formally known as Commander Hall, permits you to manage and promote your Commanders. The Command Center at the time was also a great way to increase your March Size, along with Training Capacity for your Mercenaries and Core Troops.
At level 10, you will reach:
- 2M Troop Capacity
- 600,000 Mercenary Troop Capacity
- 70,000 March Size
In the Dark World, the Command Center will convert to Troop Supplies and dominate the game for some time and as new levels are released.
You will also notice the Troop Capacity/March Size continues to increase. Don’t fret; Troop Supplies will still fall under the standard March Size category. Continue to expand it accordingly.

The Crystal Nexus holds your Cores containing additional stats that you can activate. Once activated, they each have a specific duration and a cooldown period. They are not consumable, but it is limited in their usage, hence the cooldown.
Upon unlocking the Nexus, you will be granted an Adventurer’s Core, improving your Quests.
As you level your Nexus, more Cores will be released to level 10, the 12th level granting additional Core Slots.
*Cores are in order of levels 2-10
- Luminous Core
- Spirastone Core
- Emerald Core
- Tiger’s Eye Core
- Quick stone Core
- Diamond steel Core
- Abyssal Core
- Red Fury Core
- Unconquerable Core
To learn more about what these Cores do, check out the Crystal Nexus Overview link at the end of this guide!

Guild Adventure Hall
The Guild Adventure Halls is a multiplayer dungeon that you and 19 other guildmates can enter to hit monsters for loot. As tiresome as it can be running back to back, it drops loot based on your needs.
In the Ignis Diner, you can collect plates and ingredients to create a meal that provides temporary consumable boosts.
To make a meal, you choose a plate and select your ingredients. Keep in mind that the stats on the dishes you see in the blog and guides are not guaranteed; they will fall into a range. When cooked, they will end up somewhere in this spectrum.

The Defense Ministry is more straightforward and is more a stat-based building. This building provides Troop Armor and HP along with Training Capacity and Queue.

Auxiliary Buildings in the Dark World
In the Dark World, aside from new Auxiliary Building releases, the older Auxiliary Buildings update overtime with additional advances exceeding the building’s intent to remain applicable. Not all of the buildings will update equivalently, it diversifies, but they all will have identical prints required instead of distinct ones pre-dark world did.
Check out the Auxiliary Building guides when you reach the Dark World to see how they further benefit you along with the new buildings that release as the Dark World approaches!
Since the 2.0 Edition was getting long with updates over time, a 3.0 version starts with the War Reliquary release on May 19th, 2020, and is updated to be current.
Upon the next series of Auxiliary Buildings, there will be a 4.0 edition to carry it out.
