So, we’re in day 12 of Elvenar Woodelves chapter (see previous day at Elvenar Woodelves – Day 11). A relatively quiet day today in the city. Fellowship adventure is slowing down, a few upgrades are going on, but everything is getting ready to the beginning of Woodelves settlement buildout. It may start as early as tomorrow. Will our plan work? I guess we’ll find out…
Fellowship adventure is winding down, tomorrow is the last day, and it will bring some changes to the city. Apart from that, pretty laid back day from the changes perspective. I’ve got some extra pop from finishing residence upgrades, and kicked off upgrade of one of my dust manufactories from L18 to L19 (current max). Now is the perfect time to do so. These upgrades are slow (16hr+ per level), and during that time you’re not producing the goods. So if you’re in a tight spot on goods that’s probably not a good time to do it. However, right now I am really well stocked, so can easily afford some downtime.
Similarly, I have finally got enough orcs to get my final workshop from L20 to L21. One more upgrade here, and I will finish dealing with workshops for this chapter. At least according to my original plan 😉
Apart from that, Main Hall upgrade is still going on. Also, I almost got enough research to upgrade my Blooming Trader Guild to L3. Will probably kick it off tomorrow.
And the first settlement buildings might be coming as early as tomorrow! I can’t wait – that’s where things will start heating up 😉 And I need to start working on those extra expansions…
Elvenar Woodelves progress
As anticipated, today (and the next few days) would be slower from the KP accumulation perspective. Tournament is over 😉 Unless, of course, I decide to negotiate a bunch of provinces on the map. I am up to 4 that’s available now.
So in the meantime, I’ve got half way in the Forest Glade research. Might be completing it as early as tomorrow. That would still be a day ahead of schedule.
Still, as expected, my average KP rate started to drop – now down to 64KP/day. This is still above projected 60. Well, I want to go as fast as I can outside production window (such as now), and get the slowest possible rate while production is going on. Time dilation of sorts 😉
I’m up to 120K of mana in the inventory. This look better, but subsequent research activation costs would be eating up a big chunk of my daily generation. So I don’t expect massive improvements in mana stockpiles…
Planks Tournament – recovery and preparation
Recovery mode is on from the tournament perspective. Next on the list is planks tournament, and I am going with Granite Golem as my primary unit. I am already up to about 50 squads, so things are looking good. I am also permanently maxed out on coins and supplies, even with all those non-stop upgrades. So no issues there. It might change in a bit as I can see a ton of coins / supplies needed to activate settlement research, but I think that would be easy to recover.
As a last resort, I have tons of instants, but I strongly suspect I won’t need them. The only things that can put a dent in my coin/supply capacity is placing research expansions. Those use almost max capacity of the Main Hall on coins. Well, we’ll see how it going, I don’t have any unlocked yet.
Goods situation is also excellent, so negotiating encounters that can’t be won won’t be an issue. Even if I go heavy on map negotiation.
Oh, and I crafted another Unleashed Unit Upgrade in the Magic Academy! These are super useful, and I haven’t seen one in a while.
All in all, we’re in excellent shape from the tournament perspective.
