How do you unlock different unit tiers in Realms of Ruin?
Unlike other RTS games, there's little to no base building in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin. Traditionally, constructing new buildings will give access to new units, however, Realms of Ruin adopts a different process for unlocking higher-quality tiers of units.
To unlock higher unit tiers in Realms of Ruin, you simply need to upgrade your Command Post's level. Each time you do this, you'll unlock the next tier of units for your faction to summon.
However, as you unlock higher tiers of units, their costs to summon will start to increase. In order to unlock the top tiers, you'll need to have a reserve of Realmstone as well as Command if you're to build any of them. However, building the highest tier of units ensures you'll have the most powerful units at your disposal.
