• Like I mentioned before, recommended quests tend to stick to Empire Quests. Completing them means you’ll be gifted with tons of resources, so make sure you know when they’re done. All the goods you gather by knocking out a bunch of Empire Quests can be applied towards doing even more building upgrades. The buildings you can upgrade includes your:

– Wall (helps defend your Empire’s outer perimeter)
– Hero Monument (you’ll gain extra EXP and retain more of it from a banished Hero)
– Embassy (houses reinforcements from your affiliated Guild)
– Watchtower (provides info on incoming attacks and so much more)
– Hospital (helps house wounded troops)
– Hospital Ward (increases the number of troops you can heal simultaneously)
– Bank (generates Gil and increases Gil capacity)
– Barracks (having multiple Barracks increases the Training Queue of your Training Grounds)
– Banishment Portal (you’ll be able to receive boosts when you banish an enemy Hero)
– Prison (allows you to capture and hold enemy Heroes)
– Secret University
– Treasury (upgrade your Citadel to Level 5 first; allows you to deposit Gold)
– University (refer to tip #5)
– Citadel (refer to the next tip to learn more about this building)
– Training Grounds/Special Training Grounds (refer to tip #5)
– Proving Grounds (a special arena that awards you for slaying minsters)
– Armory/Advanced Armory (lets you craft gear for your Hero)


7. Make Sure You Level Up Your Citadel

• The Citadel is another uber-important building that gives you an overall report of your empire’s continued production and advancement. Leveling up your Citadel means the production for your Energy, Metal, Food and Gil will improve over time. Upgrading your Citadel also allows you to unlock new buildings for you to place around your empire, plus you’ll probably get a gift or two for your efforts.


8. Open Up Your Secret Gifts

• See that chest floating above the recommended quest tab? That’s where your Secret Gifts lie. After opening them, you’ll have to wait a while before you can pick up some new rewards. Always keep a close eye on that chest because you may come into ownership of an extra Speed Up item.


9. Become a VIP

• When you get enough Loyalty points, spend them on your VIP Subscription activation. You can be on VIP status for a couple minutes or even a whole day. Once activated, you can take on VIP Quests and get even greater rewards. Loyalty currency can also add points to your VIP level (the max level is 11). The VIP rewards at level 1 are:

– Instant Construction Speed Up: 7-minutes
– Food Protection: +4-percent
– VIP Quest Bonus: +1
– VIP in Player Profile and Chat


10. Connect Your Facebook Account

• If you have a buddy who’s playing this game like a fiend, ask them for a referral. That way, you can acquire a wealth of rewards by doing that and connecting the game to your Facebook account. Without the referral, you can still connect to Facebook and earn a different reward – access to your own Gold Mine. Constructing your own Gold Mine gives you the power to recruit more of your Facebook buddies and gift/receive Gold.
