Evony Resource Cities

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Evony players often talk about having “specialized cities”. This means that they have a “farm/food city” or “sawmill/lumber city” or “quarry/stone city” or “ironmine/iron city”. Your guess is probably right – that the particular city only has farms, sawmills, quarries, or ironmines. What is the advantage of that?

Farm & Food Cities:

We believe Farm specialized cities to be the 3rd best type of specific cities. Lumber and Iron cities are more strategic, but Farm cities are more effective than stone cities.

Pro:

– You can support a larger army without having negative food production.

Con:

– If your farms cannot support that large army, then you will have negative food production and no means of getting more food. Since you used up all your resource field slots, you cannot produce other resources to make gold.

Sawmill & Lumber Cities:

We believe Lumber cities to be the 1st best type of specific cities. This means that this is a better city than food, stone, or iron.

Pro:

– Due to the high prices of lumber in the market, you can usually sell 1 lumber for twice the amount of food. Therefore, you can support a twice as large army as that of a Food city. In addition to that, lumber is a necessity for researching technologies, constructing buildings, training troops, and building fortified units. In essence, lumber is the most important resource in the Evony.

Con:

– You have to wait 30 minutes for resources to transport to your city through the market.

Quarry & Stone Cities:

We believe Stone cities to be the 4th best type of specific cities. This means that this is the worst city to have and that food, lumber, and iron are all better options.

Pro:

– You can have a huge amount of stone to build fortifications and construct buildings.

Con:

– Stone is the least valuable resource and therefore is fairly worthless. The average trade rate is 100 stone for 1 food, 500 stone for 1 lumber and iron. The prices speak for themselves.

Ironmine & Iron Cities:

We believe Iron cities to be the 2nd best type of specific cities. It was tough to decide which was more effective – iron or lumber cities. Iron is definitely a good city to have. Why is Iron worse than Lumber? Yes, we are aware that lumber and iron prices are virtually equal, so it boiled down to one thing: Ironmines take longer to build than Sawmills. That is the only reason.

Pro:

– Due to the high prices of iron in the market, you can usually sell 1 iron for twice the amount of food. Therefore, you can support a twice as large army as that of a Food city. In addition to that, iron is a necessity for researching technologies, constructing buildings, training troops, and building fortified units. Iron is equal in prices to that of lumber.

Con:

– You have to wait 30 minutes for resources to transport to your city through the market.

Evony Database – Resources

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

We’ve added a new section for the Evony database: General. In this General category, we’ve completely finished adding the “resources” section. We plan to add multiple other parts in addition to redoing our Evony buildings database and finishing the Evony items portion of the database.

Evony Gold, Evony Food, Evony Lumber, Evony Stone, and Evony Iron are the five resources that we’ve added.

Stay tuned, because we’re going to have a lot more of information for you at the Evony database!

Evony Market

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Evony Market

In Evony, the market is a very simple, yet important building. You may construct one by clicking on an open building spot in your Town and clicking on the market. You will need a small amount of resources to build it.

A market is your source for selling surplus resources and buying resources you are in need of (Food, Lumber, Stone, Iron). The currency is gold. You receive gold for selling and spend gold for buying. Often, players will take advantage of high and low prices, and make a profit.

Evony Resources

Monday, June 15th, 2009

This is a very basic guide on Evony resources.

In Evony, the four resources are food, lumber, stone, and iron. These resources are used to construct buildings, research technology, and train troops. Gold is not a resource in Evony, but it is a supply. Gold is required to research technology, comfort your villagers, and is used as a currency to trade the other four resources.

You can get the four resources and gold in several different ways. You may build farms for food, sawmills for lumber, quarries for stone, and ironmines for iron. The higher level you upgrade your resource buildings, the more resources you will obtain per hour. You may also buy and sell resources at the market. You sell your surplus resources for gold, and use that gold for research or to buy a resource you’re more in need of. Finally, you may obtain resources and gold from defeating an opponent in battle. If you win a battle against an NPC or player, you will get resources according to how much they have and how much you can carry.

Evony Valleys

Friday, May 29th, 2009

This is a very basic article with information about Evony “valleys”.

A valley is the generic term that consists of Flats, Forests, Lakes, Swamps, Hills, Deserts, and Grasslands. So yes, a flat is a valley.

A flat is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. The purpose of a flat is to build more cities. When somebody constructs a city, and abandons it, the barbarian city level is that of the flat when he/she conquered it.

A forest is an area of land which has many trees and shrubbery. You may attack and if successful, takes for your own. Forests are extremely useful, because they increase lumber production. The higher level the forest is, the higher percent increase you will receive upon conquering.

A lake is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Lakes are used to increase food production, and are a higher percent increase than grasslands. A higher level of the lake means a higher increase in food production.

A swamp is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Swamps are also used to increase food production. A higher level swamp results in a higher increase in food production.

A hill is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Hills are the only valley that is used to increase iron production. A higher level hill means a higher increase in iron production.

A desert is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Deserts are also the only valley used to increase stone production. A higher level desert means a higher increase in stone production.

A grassland is an area of land that you may attack and if successful, take for your own. Grasslands are used to increase food production. A higher level grassland results in a higher increase in food production.

Remember, your valleys can be re-conquered by other players, so be sure to defend them well.

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

This is a short but sweet article about how to make a second city, third city, fourth city, and so forth.

Firstly:

You need 10,000 food, 10,000 lumber, 10,000 stone, 10,000 iron, and 10,000 gold. In addition, you need to own at least one flat and have 250 workers available.

In order to build the X amount of cities, these are the Titles you need:

1st City – Civilian
2nd City – Knight
3rd City – Baronett
4th City – Baron
5th City – Viscount
6th City – Earl
7th City – Marquis
8th City – Duke
9th City – Furstin
10th City – Prinzessin

Please keep in mind that you will need the required Rank, medals, and gold to advance through the Titles.

Secondly:

To actually build your city, you need to click on the flat that you want to build your city at, and click “Build City”. You want the allotted time, and ta-dah! You have your next city!

Sawmill

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Evony Sawmill

Sawmills are your primary means of obtaining lumber/wood. Lumber is the most important supply for building/construction. Wood is also used for research and making military units. Lumber is the most profitable resource to sell in the market.

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