Evony Heroes

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Heroes are the foundation of a strong army, a wealthy city, and powerful scouts. They are required to lead your army into battle. If used effectively, you can gain a lot of prestige and honor. If used in the wrong way, or not used at all, you will be over-run.

To begin, you need an Inn and a Feasting Hall. You can build these by clicking on an open slot in your town.

Inn: This is where you can find and recruit a hero. The number of possible heroes to recruit increases as the level of your Inn does. The higher level Inn, the more options you have.

Feasting Hall: Everybody needs to live somewhere and the heroes are no exception. The Feasting Hall provides a place for the heroes to live. The number of heroes you can own depends on the level of the Feasting Hall. If you have a level 4 Feasting Hall, you can own/have four heroes.

Castellan/Mayor: In the Feasting Hall there is an option called “Appoint Mayor”. This allows you to choose one of your heroes to lead the town. Mayors do not carry over for different cities, so you’ll need to appoint a new one for each city. Mayors cannot lead your troops into battle or help scout out a city. In order to make your resources maximized, read more about it by clicking HERE.

I’m sure you’d like some elaboration on what each attribute of a hero does. A hero has five stats: Politics, Attack, Intelligence, Loyalty, and Salary. The only three that matter when appointing a Mayor are Politics, Attack, and Intelligence.

Politics: When a Mayor is appointed his Politics level decreases building time and makes your resource collection faster.

Attack: When a Mayor is appointed his Attack level lowers the time it takes to train troops. The higher level Attack, the faster your troops will be trained. The Mayor’s Attack level also helps fortify your city when you are under attack.

Intelligence: When a Mayor is appointed his Intelligence lowers the time it takes to research technology. In addition, if you send a hero with a scouting party, it will reveal more information if it has high Intelligence.

Loyalty: Each Hero has his/her own loyalty. The lower the loyalty of a hero, he/she has a higher chance of being captured and persuaded by an enemy upon defeat.

Salary: This is the most self-explanatory of all the stats. A hero loves to get paid, and thus his salary. He is paid every hour. The hero costs 20 gold for every level it has. For example: A level 3 hero would cost 60 gold per hour, and a level 40 hero would cost 800 gold per hour.

Leveling up:

Every time you upgrade your hero, you can add one point to any of the hero’s attributes.

The Castellan / Mayor

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

This is the second of four detailed guides to maximizing your resource production so that your Evony experience is that much more enjoyable. The first guide on resource buildings and fields can be found HERE.

Castellan/Mayor:

Firstly, I’d like to address the possible discrepancy between the Castellan and Mayor. The Castellan and the Mayor are the exact same thing. It appears that UMGE has simply not adjusted all the servers to match each other.

When you first begin playing Evony, it is important to get a Castellan, or more recently known as Mayor, with a high politics rating as soon as possible. The Castellan/Mayor affects both resource production and construction time.

The Routine Quest already has a guide to appointing a Castellan. Be sure to follow that guide (Hero Recruitment) and don’t forget to collect your reward.

For those who are still confused with the steps the Routine Quest has in line for you:

1 – Build an Inn.
2 – Build a Feasting Hall.
3 – Upgrade the Inn to at least level 2.
4 – Upgrade the Feasting Hall to at least level 2.
5 – If you have the item “Leather Robinhood”, use it. It offers a level 10-15 hero which increases your chances of obtaining a high Politics hero.

6 – Recruit the hero with the highest Politics rating. Anything with 50+ Politics will suffice.

7 – Go to the Feasting Hall and make the hero with the highest Politics rating the Castellan/Mayor by clicking “Appoint Castellan” or “Appoint Mayor”.

So…why should I choose a Castellan/Mayor with high Politics? Politics is one of the 3 aspects of a Hero. A Castellan/Mayor’s Politics affects how fast you get resources, and how fast you construct buildings. This is very self-explanatory, as this is a guide to maximizing your resource productivity.

Be sure to look for the 3rd and 4th guides to maximizing your resources!

5 Minute Instant Building

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Often, when a player is new to Evony, he/she gets confused on how some buildings can be under 5 minutes, yet he/she cannot instantly construct that building. The reason for this is that the 5 minute instant build is based off of the “base time” it takes to construct a building. Sometimes, you may be able to construct a building in under 5 minutes, or even under 4 minutes. This is because you have a castellan with at least decent politics. If you have a castellan in your city that has any politics stat, the build times are faster (the higher, the faster). In addition, if you have any construction technology, the build times are faster. That 5 minute speed up only works with buildings whose “original time” is under 5 minutes, not your upgraded time.

Farm

Evony Farm

Farms are your primary means of growing food. It is vital to a successful player to have an ample amount of food to feed his/her troops. In addition, farms are needed for different construction projects.

This is a table of the Evony farm without including any research or the castellan.
