Philosopher's Stone is an item which have a chance to drop after successfully defending an Item Island. Philosopher's Stone was added in the Jotunn Edition update

Philosopher's Stone generates 1 additional coin from the islands you defend. It can be upgraded to Level 2 for 5 coins and Level 3 for 9 coins , each upgrade allows it to generate 1 more gold everytime you defend an island.

As with every item in the game, once it is assigned to a commander, it cannot be removed anymore.You can choose Philosopher's Stone as a starting item once you have unlocked it.


  • While the Philosopher's Stone does create a gold advantage, do note that the unit that holds it will be generally weaker without the help of other items.
  • If needed, take the Philosopher's Stone on islands you consider easy to deal with the lack of item's help.
  • You won't gain any coins if the holder of the Philosopher's Stone falls in battle.
