25 hot tips for intermediate Evony online players

Here are some tips I found interesting for intermediate evony MMORPG players. Following these tips can greatly boost up your prestige generation rates.

1.Award your mayor "wealth of the nation". Once the mayor of your main city reaches 80 or above in politics award him the "wealth of the nation" . this reward boost the politics of the mayor by 25% for 7 days, which greatly reduce the building time. I don't suggest using it below 80 , as the percentage increase will not be very good. for example if your mayor is 50 politics , the "wealth of the nation" will increase it by 10 only. Go to feasting hall, click the "view" in the mayor row, click reward, select "wealth of the nation" from the rewards list.

2.Try building and research in both cities. If you can coordinate your building upgrades and also do researches in all the cities at the same time then that will generate prestige very rapidly.

3. Keep Academy levels in both the city same. If you keep the academy level in all the cities same then research made in one city will be shared by the other cities also. If you have a level 6 academy in the primary city and have done some construction research, and the academy of the second city is level 2 only , then the second city will not get the benefits of construction as construction can not be researched in level 2 academy.

4.Keep your tax rate above 50 and compensate loyalty with comforting. You can earn great amount of gold by keeping your tax rate above or equal to 50%. Keeping tax rates high will decrease the loyalty (100-tax rate=loyalty), so increase loyalty regularly( about 12 min. interval) by applying "disaster relief" comforting. Every time you do disaster relief it will consume some food based on your current population and boost the loyalty by 5. Most people advice keeping tax rates at 50%, but I have seen things go pretty well even with 60-70%, if you can do the comforting regularly. be careful that you are doing comforting and tax change in the same city. Just remember , change the tax rate back to 20% when you are going to be offline. Go to overview to change Tax rate change and comforting .

5. Use the market. Use the market to sell the excess resource. This can be quite useful for generating gold very quickly.

6. Do more lumbering. Lumber is the most essential resource for creating troops. So in most of the servers lumber sell at very good price. Creating more sawmills and lumbering research can help you making more troops and get more gold by selling them in the market.

7. Make the most intelligent hero as mayor before start of a lengthy research. A mayor with high politics reduces the building time, similarly a hero with more intelligence reduce the research time. Make the hero with highest intelligence as mayor , start the research and then make the old hero (with high politics) mayor again.

8. Start the town hall upgrades and wall upgrades before you go to sleep. Town hall and wall upgrades are the most lengthy upgrades. If you start it before you are going to sleep or some other lengthy absence , it continue to work (and generate prestige) even when you are offline.

9. Only attack cities with red flag upon them or with no alliance. While attacking a city check if it has an alliance. If it belongs to any other alliance find out if the alliance is your friend or enemy. If it is from enemy alliance then it will have a red flag upon it and you should attack it(If it has less prestige than you). If it does not have a red flag and belongs to some alliance, then you should check the strength of that alliance. If it belongs to a strong alliance , the city may look weaker than you, but it may have friends who are much more stronger than you. If you attack and plunder it, his stronger friends may come after you. Much worse , the whole alliance may become enemy of your alliance.

10. Use up all your resources when you are going to sleep. If you have accumulated a lot of resources and going to be offline for long time then it is better to start an upgrade or research which consumes a lot of resource or to give them to some ally member. This other enemy players will be less interested to attack you as they will see that they won't plunder much resource from you and also the time consuming researches will be completed .

11. While creating army keep in mind that you have to produce enough food for them to eat.

12. Your troops eat double the food while they are out of town. If you conquer a valley , your troops will camp there until you recall them. While camping they are out of town and eat double the amount of food they eat normally. So , recall them after defeating the valley.

13.How to recall your troops. Go to "reports", then "army movements" tab. here you will see all the troops that are out of town. Click view and then recall the army.

15. Research compass to increase the speed of your troops. Every compass research increase the speed of your troops by 10%. If you have level 10 compass then your scouts can even bypass the enemy archer towers without getting hit.

16. Upgrade your rally points and feasting halls. Upgrading the rally point lets you send more number of groups of army at a time. you can attack/scout 3
cities at a time with a level 3 rally spot. Similarly , with higher level feasting halls you can recruit many heros to lead many assaults simultaneously.

17. Attack many small valleys at a time. In recent servers medal hunting is becoming much more difficult. Valleys are dropping medals even in 1% ratio, so you have to attack many valleys to get medals. With higher level rally points and feasting halls you can attack many valleys at the same time and get medals more quickly (level of valley does not matter).

18. Do not send too many troops to the valleys. sending too many troops to the valleys will quickly end the resistance of the defenders, thus lower the chance of the medal drops. The more rounds the fights last more chances that you will get medals from that valley.

19. Calculate how many troops you have to send by using exercise tool of the rally point. In rally point you can simulate the war between two types of troops. Go to rally point then exercise. Then set 200 swordsman in the left side(attacker) and 200 archer in the right side(defender). Click ok. In the bottom it will show which side has won. This way, you can calculate how much troops you have to send against the enemy . Send about twice the calculated amount as the level of the hero is also a deciding factor and you are an attacker.

20. Send your troops in combination to avoid casualty. It is always better to send more than 1 types of unit into battle. For example, 200 swordsman will defeat 160 (level 6) , but 200 swordsman will be easily defeated with 120 archers, 1 worker, 1 warrior,1 pikeman with casualty of 22 archers. Amazing.

21. Calculate the food consumed by the troops while attacking. When you are selecting the amount of troops you are going to send for an attack, check the food consumed by the troops at the lower left part of the "march" screen. This is the food carried/consumed by the troops on march. This can be an huge amount when they are going for a very distant battle. So carefully check if the march costs you more food than you already have in your stock.

22. "Truce Agreement" gives you 12 hours peace of mind. If you have been plundered by your enemy and think that you need some time to rebuild your bases then apply "Truce Agreement" which will give you 12 hours of time in which nobody can attack you nor you can attack anybody. go to "My Items" then "items" to use it(If you have one there). You can not apply it when somebody has already attacked you.

23. Recall all your enemy before you teleport . If you want to teleport your city anywhere else then you have to bring back all your troops into your city. Go to reports , then army movement and recall all your troops.

24. Upgrade your beacon tower. Beacon towers notify you about any attacks on you. The more upgraded your beacon tower is the more early you get notified about the coming attacks on you. So , upgrading the beacon tower in all your city is very important.

25. When creating troops in the barracks , distribute the job between all barracks. When you create troops in your barrack, check the "Sharing the production to all available barracks" checkbox. You will see it at the bottom of the troop creation window. For example, if you are creating 300 archers and you have 3 level 4 barracks then each level 4 barracks will start creating 100 archers. Certainly , any barracks lower than level 4 will not share the production as minimum requirement of creating archers is level 4.



Some good tips! One that you don't have is use your second city as your "bank" for resources. My city has 500k lumber production. If I were to go to bed with it anywhere near my cap then it would stall out at a certain point when the cap was reached.

Holding on to resources could be dangerous, in case someone comes to plunder you, but if you can it will be worth more in the long run!!
