So, we’re in day 14 of Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons chapter (see previous day at Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons – Day 13). Today we were working on increasing our training size for troops production. But our ever-growing stash of mana concerns me. On one hand, it is a nice problem to have, but on the other hand we’re losing a ton to daily mana decay, and this mana can be better used elsewhere. Can it?..
Today was all about increasing our training size. We have upgraded both armories from L24 to L27. That’s the max for this chapter. Boy, are those armory upgrades fast! 3 high levels for 2x armories in a day – that’s not too shabby. If you need something to be upgraded quickly (e.g. for a quest or something like that), armories are awesome. If you have capacity to upgrade, that is.
On top of that, I have finally wrapped up KP contributions for Shrine of Shrewdy Shrooms AW L5, and kicked in the upgrade. The next upgrade – to L6 – doesn’t need any KPs, but it will need a full set of SSS runes. And as many runes as I have for various AWs, it seems that for SSS I will come up short. I have only 7 runes. Well, I suppose it would be time to finally use some broken shards 😉
With armories upgrades, SSS and Dwarwen Bulwark AWs, my training size almost doubled. I used to run about 3 hour for the full barracks cycle (5 slots), and now it is more than 5 hours. This will reduce troop production slippage that was still occurring before…
Elvenar Sorcerers & Dragons progress
No huge changes from the research perspective today. As anticipated, we have unlocked workshops upgrade tech, and now contributing to the Banshee Promotion. Once this one is activated, we will open T2 manufactories upgrades. And those are big KP sinks.
We managed to keep our KP inflow pretty low today, so our actual KP rate is getting back to its expected target value. No real changes in the ETAs – looks as bad as ever. But so far our production keeps up with KPs, so it’s all good. I suppose it is the later research that will exceed that capacity…
And I have to do something about my mana excess. I’ve been running with almost 500K of mana for a few days, and this means almost 50K of mana losses to decay daily. There got to be a better use for that. I have some ideas, so stay tuned! 😉
Magic Dust Tournament – recovery and preparation
Recovery mode is on from the tournament perspective. We’re moving full speed ahead with Sword Acrobat production, and we should be hitting about 150 squads or so by the beginning of the tournament. I am not sure that would be enough though. If previous experience is any indication, we may blow about 250 squads to completely autofight through the whole tournament. Well, we will see. Perhaps I will be positively surprised, for a change 😉
