So, we’re in day 7 of Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons chapter (see previous day at Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons – Day 06). Demolition day is on today. Event quest line is mostly done, so shantytown it getting deconstructed. In its place we’re building up Sorcerers’ University. About time we started expanding these facilities!
Just as I mentioned yesterday, there are quite a few changes in the city today. First and foremost, the shantytown is gone. Poof! Gone. But I said the same thing the last time, and had to rebuild it for extra quests. Hopefully, I won’t have to repeat this exercise again – not for this event, that is. So all T1 planks are gone, and remaining L1 workshops that I keep for quest cycling for supplies are all stuffed into various nooks and crannies.
And with that, we managed to finally upgrade Campus to L2! And we’ve done it without removing any mana production (e.g. Willows). Nice! L2 upgrade allowed us to add another Arcane Faculty and Alchemy Faculty at L1. Now we’re racing ahead to upgrade Campus as fast as we can. I am using time boosts to achieve close to zero construction time for Campus upgrades. It’s not cheap at ~24 hours per level, but I’ve got quite a few time boosters from this event. And what else I will be using these boosters for in the near future? There are no barracks upgrade this chapter, major event is done – this leaves guest race settlement construction and upgrades as a good target. But specifically the portal.
Basically, here we’re trading off portal profits for time boosters. If construction is too slow I have to use more PPs (and potentially in less efficient manner). It’s a good trade as far as I am concerned as time boosters are easier to come by than PPs.
Oh yeah, and I kicked off another upgrade to Shrine of Shrewdy Shrooms – to L4. More training size, more archers, more better! 😉
Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons progress
Managed to keep inflow for today at about 30 KPs – that’s pretty much the lowest I can get without wasting any. But we’re still already halfway into the last open tech (City Expansion 39), and the Campus is only at L2. I am pretty certain that I will manage to get it to L3 before we run into a wall. But can I push it all the way to L4 before using any Portal Profits? It might be possible, but it will be really tight. As usual 😉
So now we’re again in a race against the clock. Can we win it this time?
Elixir Tournament – recovery and preparation
Recovery mode is on from the tournament perspective. I am going to build up treants up to 20 squads just so I don’t sit there empty, and then will switch to Granite Golem production. Won’t be capping it this time around, so will produce as much as I can. Unfortunately, due to me delaying tournament stages to the last possible moment, I will have significantly less time than usual to build out the troops reserve.
But I expect to deploy Fire Phoenix for the next tournament! This is very exciting – we’ll see how L8 +40% damage boost that I expect to get for now will impact tournament results. There were rumors that it may make things worse… We’ll see!
Event – Evolution of the Phoenix
Today is another day in our current 4 week long event – Evolution of the Phoenix. Again, won’t be repeating much what is written elsewhere, so check out these resources:
