So, we’re in day 4 of Elvenar Woodelves chapter (see previous day at Elvenar Woodelves – Day 03). Today we were continuing to grow our willow forest. And marble tournament is all done! But do we have enough mana and goods to continue full speed ahead?
I am up to 10 operational willows now, and 3 are still being built. So this is where I will slow down on willows for now. I am getting close to unlocking residences upgrade, and will need to start building pop for other upgrades (such as barracks). 13 willows is probably fine, but I may still build one or two more with one builder as I have space. Mana seems to be pretty important for this chapter 😉
I also had to pause for a couple of hours to build 2x small mana buiuldings for non-declinable quest. Meh.
And then I have moved residences and workshops around again. This is probably because there is nothing else that I can build for now, just need to wait for willow construction. And so I just move buildings around 😉
Elvenar Woodelves progress
I was a pretty good day from the KP accumulation perspective (see the tournament section). Yet it didn’t translate into much from the research perspective. As anticipated, I finished KP requirements for the residences upgrade today. And indeed I’ve only got about 40K in mana by that time (vs required 50K). So tomorrow I will finally be able to activate it and start gaining some pop!
In the meantime, I am working on advancing barracks upgrade research. This will need 25K of mana to unlock, and it will likely be on time. But more importantly, I will need a hefty pop surplus to actually implement these upgrades. Things are starting to get interesting 😉
Marble Tournament – 5* and 6* day
Today was a pretty big day – a double day and a finale for the tournament (for me). I did the usual 12x provinces to 5* and 9x to 6*. That’s a decent amount of KP from the 5* round, yet today is not as big of the day as I usually have for that. The reason being is that when I am trying to postpone KP acquisition, I do KP harvesting from provinces 13-20 in 2* round on this last day. But right now I am trying to front load KPs as much as I can, so I did the harvesting on day 2 of the tournament.
This also means that today I didn’t have that big of a hit as I normally do in terms of goods! In fact, with tournament over, it doesn’t look too bad at all. I will submit some rebalancing trades, so we will see if it just looks “not bad”, or if it looks pretty good actually. Right now I am not balanced across the goods at all. This is still a remnant of Orcs chapter conclusion plus catering in the tournament. But the totals start to look decent. I think we’re on the road to recovery! 😉
