The Altar is one of the most misunderstood buildings in Lords Mobile. Unlike the Watchtower or Vault, the Altar doesn’t just do its thing. The altar requires patience, a lot of troops, and the ability to capture leaders and then kill them.

What is the Altar?
The Lords Mobile is the building that lets you execute the enemy leaders that you have captured. After placing the enemy in jail, and getting the jail boost, you will then be able to execute the leader and receive a 24-hour Altar boost.
The word Altar is ridiculously silly in my, not-so-humble opinion. There are so many better names that would reflect what the Altar is, but alas, we are riding in IGG’s weird little car as they drive this wonderful highway towards nonsense land. I guess, that if you don’t have a problem with understanding how Tracker can stand up without falling forward, then I guess nothing should faze you in this game.
Simply put, the Altar is the building that gives you a 24-hour boost every time you kill an enemy leader.
Because they said so!
How to Get the Altar
There are a
In addition, you will need to prepare Soul Crystals for each time you upgrade to a higher level. The soul crystals can be a real pain if you aren’t willing to spend gems. At first, you will only need to pay a few soul crystals for each upgrade. Once you start hitting level 20 however, it will begin taking a toll… Be warned! You heard it here first!
The good news is that you can buy Soul Crystals from the Gem Store:
- 1 Soul Crystal for 15 gems
- 10 Soul Crystal for 120 gems
- 100 Soul Crystal for 1,100 gems
- 1,000 Soul Crystal for 10,000 gems
The trick is to just buy about x15 10,000-packs as soon as you can. You will end up saving yourself a lot in the long run.
Alternatively, you can be a slick fox and buy each individual Soul Crystal 1 at a time. Go you! You’re really clever, aren’t you?
You will also need a Golden Hammer to unlock the Altar to level 25. Prepare yourself in advance.
How to Activate the Altar
Activating the altar can only be done by killing a captured enemy leader. This is the hard part! This is where the work in begins…
Unlocking and upgrading the Altar is easy compared to capturing an enemy leader, keeping him locked in the prison for a few days, and then executing him.
This can be a formidable challenge…
If you manage to kill a leader, you will receive a military boost that will last 24-hours. The power of the boost will obviously depend on the level of your Altar.
The good news is that the altar boost can work in conjunction with a prison boost. More on that down below.
Altar Level and Boosts
The military boosts will vary depending on which level altar you have. In the beginning, you won’t really feel the boost at all. In fact, if you are holding a high-profile prisoner I would recommend holding on to him just for the altar boost…
Once you upgrade past level 20, the boost is awesome.
- Level 1 the boosts are 1% Army ATK, 0% Army DEF, 0% Army HP and 0% Travel Speed
- Level 10 the boosts are 6% Army ATK, 3% Army DEF, 3% Army HP and 6% Travel Speed
- At Level 20 the boosts are 21% Army ATK, 21% Army DEF, 15% Army HP and 16% Travel Speed
- At Level 25 (max) the boosts are 38% Army ATK, 38% Army DEF, 38% Army HP and 21% Travel Speed
The awesome news about the altar is that the boosts are in addition to any prisoner boosts you may still have active.
Another good thing is that with every prisoner that you kill, you will extend the boost for another 24-hours. Practically speaking you can weeks of boosts all prepared in advance…
Using the Prison Boost Together with Altar
If you have one prisoner, you won’t really be able to use both boosts at the same time. You will use the Prison Boost for as long as you can, and then grab the Altar Boost.
If you have multiple heroes in jail, however, you’ll be able to use the boosts in conjunction with each other. And you should make sure that you do!
There’s also one important note here. If you have 2 heroes, one is level 60 and one is level 58, and both of them are ready to be executed, ALWAYS execute the lower level hero first and leave the higher hero for as long as you can!
Because, the level 60 prison boost is 30% Army Attack while the level 58 has only a 23% Army Attack boost. The Altar boost, however, is the same for all heroes!
