Gold/crystal "guide"

Post by coolmkv69 on Wed Jan 23, 2013 6:38 pm

I've always been under the impression that end game characters have a ton of resources but boy am I wrong.

Just a bit of back story. During an alliance battle, I noticed a level 44 opponent with no gear on. I didn't understand why so I messaged them in game. They replied to me saying that they take off their gear when they are offline because it costs too much to repair.

This got me thinking, "Is it really that costly?" If I remember correctly it cost about 50k-80k to repair one high end piece of gear. Multiply that by 11 assuming you have all end game gear/spells for your character and that's around 550k-880k. Of course this is just a ballpark figure atm but I'm sure most people can accumulate that much in between the repairs unless you're getting chained attacked constantly.

So here is my tip to current mid-level players (lvl 20s to low 30s). Use the prison cells ALOT! With the expansion of the game, there are more and more people to loot from. I've noticed that there are a ton of people who always seem to forget to defend their castle. Just send one footman (80 gold to recruit) to people who are close to you (30mins or less) Over the span of 2-3 weeks you can "earn" up to a million or so gold/crystal assuming you are constantly sending out footman.

Once you've gotten a good foundation of resources, just work on protecting and building it slowly. I stopped sending out footmen after a while because I didn't need that much resources anymore that is until the most recent update which introduced reputation.

Building a strong fort after you obtain the portal at level 24 is crucial because at that level people are less likely to retaliate if they know they can't beat you. I once saw a level 26 Succubus castle hero with a level 37 Beserker fort hero. Needless to say no one messed with him for a long time, lol

Of course the best way to earn resources fast is to produce hourly but who has time for that right? Not to mention the hardest way and most "dangerous" way is to defeat people on your rivals lists and send full formations in prison cell fights.

So guys what do you think?

i agree with you completley man, the only thing i would add to increase gold and crystal income is the arena, when your level 24-30 you can ghost trick any zerk or moth that isnt in the front lines, and if you can solo arena you can make tons of gold and crystal. sidenote i dig your signature Smile

The best way to earn resources is to attack people with lots of resources. I went from over 9M gold to 1M gold in a week from being attacked.

The only reliable way to get resources is to farm every arena clear and to use all your mines every hour of every day.

The guy you talked to in the clan battle is simply a moron.

Also the exploit you mentioned with a fort of 37 and a castle of 26 is no longer possible. Your "attackable" level is based on the higher of your two bases now, not just your castle.

The one thing i wouldn't agree with here is just sending one footman to take over castles. Most players that you can conquer with footman are either already raided out of all of their resources or don't play anymore. At the very least active players usually have a formation to beat the single footman. Other than that then yes, save up your money because it will make life a lot easier having some money to fall back on if you get trained or something bad happens.

Most of the stuff I said is based on my past experiences throughout the game so far.

@bullseyed, I wasn't aware that it was an exploit back then or now tbh. I never thought too much of it because it just seems too difficult to focus just on a fort hero anyways. That must've hurt losing all that gold! You must've pissed off alot of people because that means you were attacked at least 20-25 times if my math serves me correctly.

@Choido, I'm well aware about that but from what I've learned is that some people forget to put up a defense especially back when I was in my mid level 20s. Only in a blue moon will I catch an active player now with one footman. PS - Isn't that how we met? lol You were attacking me from a friend's rival list because I looted them with one footman?
