 - Assassins and Furgons have been added to unit drops.

How do you recruit new units?

Unit Drops  -   About five times a day, there are chances to WIN a random unit when you are in battle!
This includes the Cleric, Pyromancer, Dark Magic Witch, Assassin, Barrier Ward, Mud Golem, Enchantress, Frost Golem (RARE), Beast Rider (RARE), and Furgon (RARE).

Upgrading Bonus  -   Currently you receive a Frost Golem, Golem Ambusher, Dragon Tyrant, Beast Rider, and Furgon when you upgrade!

Rare Units  -   The Stone Golem, Dragonspeaker Mage, and Poison Wisp are currently available only to those who upgraded a single account more than once!

These criteria can change with each big update involving new units. The earlier you upgrade, the more units you will be automatically eligible for! (Some Rare Units will eventually become available to even FREE accounts in the future.)
