Editor’s Note
This guide has been updated to account for the changes introduced with the Combo Breaker patch. This concerns the Jungle Camp Timers section of the article.

Roles

There are five dedicated roles in Conquest, each with their own individual tasks, objectives, default position on the map, as well as general difficulty level for beginner players. Some character classes are more suited to filling specific roles than others.

Lanes

There are three lanes in Conquest. The area in-between the lanes is called the Jungle. Teams are either assigned Chaos or Order side and this directly affects map orientation. The middle lane is always located at the center of the map. The duo lane is situated on the Gold Fury side; it is also called the long lane since its tier-one towers are farther apart from each other. By contrast, the solo lane is located on the Fire Giant side; it is also known as the short lane because its tier-one towers are closer to each other.

Jungle Camp Timers

All jungle camps spawn for the first time at the 10-second mark except for Fire Giant (10-minute mark). Depending on the type, camps respawn periodically at different time intervals. A timer icon (pie chart) indicating when the camp is going to respawn appears on the minimap only for the team who manages to take down that camp.
