Tips & Tactics:
|Starting off it's always good to fill any empty spots you have in your City with housing and barracks. Once you get the WorkShop,BlackSmith, Stable, Embassy, Knights Hall, Alchemy Lab, Rally Point, Storage House and Watch tower Built the rest of the empty spot will be housing and barracks.|
Resource fields can be tricky depending on your play style. If you have A LOT OF TIME to farm NPC camps then you will have a lot of Food at your disposal. If this is the case you really don't need many farms at all. If you are a casual player then I suggest building 5 Lumber, 5 Stone, 5 Ore and the rest Farms. This will let you keep a decent amount of Defense Troops without having to do as much NPC farming . Also make sure to not leave any open spaces, build resources up to at least level 3 to fill any empty spots. You can come back later to level them if you have other building priorities.
As you are leveling in the game be sure to abandon lower level Wilds and work towards replacing them as your army grows stronger enough to take higher level wilds.
Having a High level Knight, High Research for resources and as hugh a level of wilds as possible can GREATLY increase your production levels.Don't forget about the HIDE ALL TROOPS button. This button is important since you can build and level your storage house to a level that will protect most of your resources. If you are a TURTLE style of player a good strategy is to level your store house, then hide your troops when an attack comes from a player you cannot defeat. The only problem is you can not protect your GOLD. One way to avoid losing your gold if you are online is to transport it to a nearby alliance member. If you can't do that, SPEND IT!
