The dwarves have a massive angular fortress that provides a high number of extensions. The peculiarity of the faction is defined by a leading realm selection: Erebor, Iron Hills or Ered Luin. The focus depends on the leading realm. The fortress offers 7 building plots, with 2 more available after researching an upgrade. In addition to a large number of unit upgrades, the dwarves have three different sources of raw materials: wood, ore and stone. On camp maps, the dwarves have a hexagonal ring of walls with a small opening. Erebor's focus is on infantry that can be enlisted in a plethora of different variations. On settlements they can build Mineshafts, Lumbermills or Travel Camps. Ponies are generated every few minutes from Travel Camps, allowing Arkenguards to leave for Khazad Dûm to return as seasoned Veterans.
Strategic Points Edit
The castle is a heavily equipped stronghold with walls, defense plots in the base and a gate. The player can unlock additional defense plots by purchasing the defense plot upgrade from a Dwarven Stonemason. It has 7 building plots and 4 defense plots inside and more defense plots on the wall.
The camp has high walls with a single output. the walls, however, cannot gain defense upgrades, but there are still plots on the inside that can be unlocked with the upgrade. It has 5 plots with 4 defense plots.
Erebor can pick between a regular outpost where they can build regular troops, or Dale, with men that will defend their home with all their heart.
On settlements they can build mineshafts that produce resources, lumber mills which produce wood resources and travel camps which make elite troops into Veterans of Khazad Dum.
