"In a great cave some miles within the edge of Mirkwood on its eastern side there lived at this time their greatest king. Before his huge doors of stone a river ran out of the heights of the forest and flowed on and out into the marshes at the feet of the high wooded lands. This great cave, from which countless other smaller ones opened out on every side, wound far underground and had many passages and wide halls..."
The Hobbit

The Mirkwood Outpost is the special outpost for the Lothlorien faction. The Mirkwood Citadel is the central building of the outpost. When you build it you are provided with 4 build plots where you can choose to build the following:


Resource Production - This building produces resources. It produces 10 Resources every 12 seconds by default. This number can be modified through upgrades and abilities.

Thranduil's mobilization order Mobilisation Order - Units of Mirkwood are temporarily trained much faster (requires research from the Vault of the King).

The Mirkwood Outpost Citadel is where you can train the units of Mirkwood, but they require other Mirkwood buildings to be constructed first. For more info see the following pages:
