Training sessions last two hours and you can leave the game without affecting their progress.

You can also purchase gear at the Exchange Store in your race's capital city using Honor and Reputation points. Honor is acquired by attacking other players while Reputation is gained by donating Silver to your Alliance. Another way of buying (or selling) equipment is through the Auction House in your race's main city. Here you can buy and sell items to other players for Gold. You can also visit the Transmutation Master at your capital to transmute equipment or spin the Wheel of Fortune.

Once construction is complete, click on the building to select a unit type that you wish to recruit. You can view the attributes and requirements of all recruitable unit types. When you first build a barracks you'll only be able to recruit one unit type. In order to unlock other, more powerful unit types you'll also need to construct a Royal Stable in your Castle if you're playing as a Human (Elf and Undead players need to construct a Rainbow Grove and Abominable Monolith respectively). Upgrade these two buildings to unlock more unit types.

Now if you're out on a quest and need to kill some monsters or you're looking to attack another player then you'll need to put your heroes in Attack mode. However, if you've received a message warning of an imminent attack by another player you need set your heroes to a Defend your Castle. Click the "Hero" button and select which heroes to "Attack" and which heroes to "Defend" or alternatively, use the "All Attack" and "All Defend" buttons.

Before you dismiss a hero, you'll need to remove all of the hero's assigned units and equipment. Once you've done that, click on the "Hero" button to enter the hero menu, select a hero and click on the "Dismiss" button to dismiss that hero from your army. Once a hero has been dismissed he/she will not reappear at the Tavern.
How do I attack another player?

I've just started playing; will I be easy prey for more advanced players?

Can I turn off the in-game music?
Yes you can. Click on the "Option" button at the top right of the screen to turn music on or off.
The game seems to have crashed. What should I do?
If you encounter any technical problems such as the game getting stuck at a loading screen or your avatar not showing up, the first thing you should do is to refresh your browser. Usually that will be enough to fix the problem. If the problem persists, post a thread with a screenshot in the Bugs & Suggestions section of the forum.
Can I change my character/race?
Once you've created a character in CoG you won't be able to change it. If you wish to play as a different character/race you can start a new account and play with that account instead. Please refrain from playing with multiple accounts at the same time as you may gain an unfair advantage over players who don't.
