Rebel leaders are various enemy troops that randomly spawn on the map that you can defeat for XP and treasure.
- Attacking rebel leaders (expeditions) costs motivation. You regain motivation over time; or you can consume motivation items that allow you to regain some motivation instantly.
- Each expedition decreases the health of a rebel leader group. Consecutive expeditions against the same enemy grant you a damage bonus (Combo Cap).
- You can dispatch only a single expedition simultaneously.
- You have to join an Alliance before you can go on an Expedition.
Each attack versus rebel leaders can yield experience for lord and your commanders, resources, and crafting materials for Blacksmith.
When you defeat a rebel leader, this additionally yields an Alliance Gift that all alliance members can redeem.
Rebel Leaders come in levels one to five. You need to research the appropriate technology at the Maester's Tower to attack higher-level leaders. Expeditions versus higher level leaders cost more motivation than lower level.
