Evony turned page to Age 2 and existing players and newcomers alike will have the chance to explore all that Evony: Age II has. This startup guide is for new servers where resources are still very cheap in terms of gold. Check details below:
The first few weeks of a server food is only about 0.1 gold each and the other resources are at about 0.2 – 0.4. We want to take advantage of this by having a high gold income, and focus most of our resources on building cottages for the first few days. Later on you will remove some of them for barracks, but early on we don’t need that many barracks since we’ll only be building warriors and we don’t have enough resources to keep a bunch of barracks running all the time.
What I do on a new server is to first complete the quests to get the basic buildings you need in your city. You get as much resources in reward for completing the quests as it costs you to build the first few levels of every building, sometimes even more, so there is no reason not to do so right away. Spend some guidelines to speed things up if you want. You build one of each resources and then fill up the rest of your fields with mostly wood and a few of stone. Wood is the most important resource for you early since you will be building cottages.
Done with the basic buildings and the resource fields you’ll now start building cottages apart from 2-3 spots you’ll use for extra barracks. Upgrade the cottages to at least level 4 before you start thinking about getting your next city. Drop tax to 0% to get population to max fast, then keep it at 100% tax rate and keep using disaster relief every 15 minutes to keep population at maximum.
City number two will look exactly the same, and you’ll probably have enough resources to start this city the second day of your server. Spend all your income at upgrading your cottages till they are at least level 5, this will give you more than 50k gold an hour with two cities, which is huge! With prices of say 0.1 food and 0.2 wood this is the same as making half a million food an hour or 250k wood an hour!
The income mentioned is when you’re online and have time to use comfort relief all the time. When offline you will set tax rate to 50% and you’ll only get 25% of the income cause of population dropping to half as well. Still 12.5k an hour when offline isn’t bad either with the low resource prices. If you’re lucky enough to get a tax policy item you can double your income, making this strategy even better. I’m not saying you should ignore the resource fields totally, but don’t bother getting them higher than level 3 until you’re done with your 40 level 5 cottages. The barracks in your cities will be used for warrior production to plunder your neighbors with as well as level 1 NPCs.
