Kingdom Ark - General Information

The Kingdom Ark is a building which can only be built on Kingdom land, with the purpose of protecting the Kingdom's resources if it is destroyed. There are several resources that the Kingdom Ark can protect, including Bricks, Crude Oil, Crystal, and Construct Essence. The Kingdom Ark can only protect the resources spent on Towers, Obelisks, and Skywards.

The Kingdom Ark cannot be attacked. It is only destroyed when the Kingdom gets destroyed.

Building a Kingdom Ark costs the following Materials:

The Kingdom Ark must be built on Kingdom Land, and is currently only allowed to be built by the Ruler of your Kingdom.

  • Note: the Kingdom Ark is not included in the list of buildings that are allowed to be built by members that are Allowed the 'Construction' permission.

Kingdom Ark Resource Protection - Overview

As mentioned, the Kingdom Ark can protect your resources that you've invested into your Kingdom, in the case of your Kingdom being destroyed.

For each resource that the Kingdom Ark protects, it stores a total value that the Kingdom will be worth when the Kingdom is destroyed. However, if you destroy Kingdom structures yourself, the value of the structure is immediately deducted from the Kingdom Ark. Buildings that you add to your Kingdom after the construction of the Kingdom Ark will be added to the value of the Ark.

Below, you will find an overview of what the Kingdom Ark will cover:

Resource Coverage - Kingdom Stores

The Kingdom Ark will cover 100% of the items in your Kingdom Stores. The items that are 100% protected include:

  • Bricks in Kingdom Store
    • these Bricks are the ones donated via the Kingdom Warehouse - quantity is listed on your Kingdom Profile.
  • Crystal in Kingdom Store
    • this Crystal is the Crystal donated via the Kingdom Warehouse - quantity is listed on your Kingdom Profile.
  • Gold in the Kingdom Store
    • this Gold is the Gold donated via the Kingdom Warehouse - quantity is listed on your Kingdom Profile.
  • Refined Oil in the Kingdom Store
    • this Refined Oil is the Refined Oil donated via the Kingdom Warehouse - quantity is listed on your Kingdom Profile.


Resource Coverage - Resources Spent on Kingdom Structures

As soon as you build your Kingdom Ark, it immediately covers 25% of the resources you spend on the construction of all of your Kingdom's Obelisks, Skywards, and Towers. Although your Coverage includes 25% of the upgrade costs of the listed structures, your Ark will only cover a maximum of the following:

  • 100,000 Bricks
  • 25,000 Crude Oil
  • 3,000 Crystal
  • 3,000 Construct Essence

Keep in mind that the coverages mentioned above are ONLY for a Kingdom Ark - Level 1. Below, you will find full Coverage details for your Kingdom Ark, based on its upgrade.

Upgrading the Kingdom Ark

The cost to upgrade your Kingdom Ark is pretty simple - the cost remains the same for each upgrade. Since it's a static cost for each level, it's listed below:

Cost to Upgrade Kingdom Ark

Each time you upgrade your Kingdom Ark, you are adding additional protection of your Kingdom's resources. For each upgrade to the Kingdom Ark, you are adding the following benefits:

  • +1% coverage of the resources used to build Kingdom Towers, Obelisks and Skywards
    • this coverage has a maximum of 90%.
  • New cap to the amount of resources covered, per level:
    • +100,000 Bricks
    • +25,000 Crude Oil
    • +3,000 Crystal
    • +3,000 Construct Essence

To help you understand how each upgrade increases your coverage by 1% to a maximum of 90% and how it's directly related to the 'cap' of resources protected, read the following information.

While the Kingdom Ark can cover a percentage of your Kingdom's value in terms of Bricks, Crystal, Crude Oil and Construct Essence, there is also a limit to how much of each item can be covered. For example, if your Kingdom Ark can cover 50% of your Kingdom's value and your Kingdom's upgrades are worth 15 million Bricks, the actual amount that will be given to you upon Kingdom destruction will actually be 2.6 million Bricks, due to the cap. If you want to view more examples of amounts that would be refunded based on your Kingdom's value as well as the Kingdom Ark level, view the Kingdom Ark Refund Details page.

Below, you'll find a link to a detailed chart showing the protection percentage and protection caps per level, from Level 1 to Level 100. At the bottom of that page, you'll also find continued upgrade levels, from 101 to 200.

Kingdom Ark Upgrade Details

There is no limit on how high the Kingdom Ark can be upgraded.

Inspecting the Kingdom Ark

Your Kingdom Ark will have an option to Inspect Kingdom Ark. This is an awesome feature of the Kingdom Ark that pops up a notification box that allows you to view many details about your coverage as well as what your next Kingdom Ark upgrade will cover, if you choose to do the upgrade.

Total Asset Value

The Total Asset Value is the value of all of the Bricks, Crystal, Crude Oil and Construct Essence used to upgrade structures throughout your Kingdom. This section is mostly informative, and you can use the information in this section to decide what level you want to upgrade your Kingdom Ark to, by consulting with the chart located on the page titled Kingdom Ark Upgrade Details.

Covered Asset Value

The Covered Asset Value tells you the amount of resources you will receive if your Kingdom was destroyed right that moment. The Covered Asset Value will be one of the following:

  • Kingdom Ark Level's Percent of Coverage, OR
  • Kingdom Ark Level's Coverage Cap, whichever is lower.

Example: in reference to Total Asset Value of Bricks: if your Total Asset Value in Bricks is 900,000 and your Kingdom Ark is Level 1, you will only receive 100,000 Bricks if your Kingdom is destroyed because your actual coverage (Level 1 = 25 = 225,000 Bricks) exceeds the Kingdom Ark Level 1 Cap of 100,000 Bricks.

Example: in reference to Total Asset Value of Bricks: if your Total Asset Value in Bricks is 100,000 and your Kingdom Ark is Level 1, you will receive 25,000 Bricks if your Kingdom is destroyed. Your Kingdom Ark Level 1 covers 25% of your Total Asset Value. If your left your Kingdom Ark at Level 1, your Total Asset Value of bricks can be up to 400,000 before you begin 'losing' Bricks due to exceeding your Kingdom Ark Level Cap.
