  2. Tap on the March button
  3. Tap on the blocks you wish to mark
  4. Tap on the Pinned button
  5. Rinse and repeat for the rest of the 3×3 tiles

Before relocating to the newly marked territory you need to make sure that you meet the following requirements:

  • You have marked a new 3×3 foundation
  • All your armies are on standby
  • The new territory belongs to your faction

If you’ve marked the right territory, then all you need to do is make sure that your commanders are at your home base by tapping on your main fortress and tapping the Summon button.

Once your commanders return, you can start relocating by following these steps:

  1. Tap on the settlement you wish to relocate
  2. Tap on the Build button
  3. Tap on the Relocate box
  4. Confirm by tapping the Relocate button
