I got past it. Did you kill the darklings second outpostoutpost?
Sorry, maybe we are not speaking of the same thing.
I'm in chapter 7, I'm sending my boat with my troups to warn all the other Kingdoms, and I'm not able to warn Markin, I've downloaded troups, brought them near his town where his queen is, but nothing happens.
My sovereign with his champions is in front of the Enchanted Gateway, waiting for reinforcements from the sea.
I've received before the update saying that Markin has few troops to offer but plenty of resources, but nothing more happened.
Sorry, I don't understand of which second outpost wre you speaking...
Anyway, of course, thanks for trying to help me!
