Dungeon Keeper Wiki

Every week there is a promotion offering discounts or increased rewards.  The various discounts include gems, reinforced walls, traps that cost stone and yes, even imps. This page is to keep track of these different promotions. Promotions last one full week.

Regular Promotions[]

Accelerate Sale[]

All Acceleration costs are 50% off! - Includes rushing Rooms, Traps & Doors, Training Minions & Immortals, Reviving knocked out/captured Immortals and spawning minions (does not include guild withdrawals or deposits)

  • When upgrading the Dark Library, it will stop producing mana, leaving none for the player to collect until the upgrade is complete. While it is upgrading, you can't cast spells or gain spell XP, unless you buy mana with gems. It can be very beneficial to accelerate this building.
  • Accelerating minion summoning can also be very cheap and worth while.
  • If you are going to accelerate training times (or simply monitor them), be aware that training bonuses from guilds are not applied, until you watch a replay or look at another players dungeon or test your own dungeon. Make sure to do this immediately before accelerating the training.
  • Mines and Quarries do not produce gold and stone while being upgraded. Though the amount they provide isn't worth accelerating them for unless you are desperate for Imps.

  • During this promotion, try and leave one Imp idle for upgrading walls.
