A comprehensive, all-inclusive guide to collecting large amounts of resources in a short amount of time.

A) Items (Resource Boxes)

A-1) Defeat many Event Bosses (especially Ymir 3, Witch 3, Warlord 3)

You can always get resource items by defeating some of the bosses.

Recommended bosses are as follows.

Considering only the Quantity

  • 2.5M x4 types – Ymir 5
  • 2.2M x4 types – Ymir 4
  • 2M x4 types – Ymir 3, Typhon, Witch 5, Warlord 5, Nian5
  • 1.7M x4 types – Witch 4, Warlord 4
  • 1.5M x4 types – Witch 3, Warlord 3, Jormungandr, Sphinx6, Hydra4, Nian4
  • 1.25M x4 types – Pan5
  • 1.1M x4 types – Sphinx5
  • 1M x4 types – Phoenix, Pan4, Sphinx4, Golem5, Lava Turtle5, Hydra3, Nian3
  • 900K x4 types – Pan3, Golem4, Lava Turtle4
  • 800K x4 types – Ymir 2, Sphinx3

  • 360K x4 types – Garuda2
  • 312K x4 types – Royal Thief I-III
  • 260K x4 types – Garuda1

Considering Stamina Efficiency

  • 266K/stamina – Ymir 3
  • 250K/stamina – Ymir 5
  • 220K/stamina – Ymir 4
  • 200K/stamina – Witch 3&5, Warlord 3&5, Nian5
  • 170K/stamina – Witch 4, Warlord 4, Nian4
  • 160K/stamina – Typhon
  • 133K/stamina – Hydra3&4, Nian3
  • 125K/stamina – Pan5
  • 120K/stamina – Jormungandr, Pan3, Sphinx6
  • 110K/stamina – Sphinx5
  • 106K/stamina – Ymir 2, Sphinx3
  • 100K/stamina – Phoenix, Pan4, Sphinx4, Golem 5, Lava Turtle 5, Hydra1
  • 93K/Stamina – Golem 3, Lava Turtle 3, Hydra2
  • 90K/Stamina – Golem 4, Lava Turtle 4
  • 80K/Stamina – Witch 2, Warlord 2
  • 72K/Stamina – Garuda2
  • 70K/Stamina – Behemoth
  • 66K/Stamina – Sphinx2, Nian2
  • 64K/Stamina – Garuda1
  • 62K/Stamina – Royal Thief I-III
  • 57K/Stamina – Garuda3
  • 53K/Stamina – Pan2, Golem 2, Lava Turtle 2
  • 50K/Stamina – Ymir1, Sphinx1, Fafnir

NOTE about Pan / Garuda / Royal Thief: The “Senior Resources Chest” & “Special Resources Chest” are the ones that drop, and the amount of resources that can be obtained when opening these chests is random. However, when a large number of boxes were opened at once and verified, the expected value was around 60%, so the values calculated based on this assumption are listed.

Reference: Boss Chest & Drop Item List

A-2) Consuming Return Event

Speedup Consuming Return Event

If you complete all the “Common Speedup” sections, you will get 555M of each resource.

Speed Consuming Return Event
  • 25,000 mins (about 17 days) – 5M x4 types
  • 100,000 mins (about 69 days) – 20M x4 (25M x4 total)
  • 250,000 mins (about 173 days) – 35M x4 (60M x4 total)
  • 500,000 mins (about 347 days) – 50M x4 (110M x4 total)
  • 1,000,000 mins (about 694 days) – 65M x4 (175M x4 total)
  • 2,500,000 mins (about 1,736 days) – 160M x4 (335M x4 total)
  • 5,000,000 mins (about 3,472 days) – 220M x4 (555M x4 total)

Tips for Achievement

Get a large amount of speedups from the “resource consuming return event”.

For example, if you are around Keep level 31, it is not difficult to consume 2,500M of each of the 4 resource types. That would give you a total of over 640 days of speedups. With this, you can easily reach 1,000,000 mins in the “Common Speedup” section.

Reference: How to get Speedup items efficiently

Resource Consuming Return Event

Resource Consuming Return Event

For example, if you spend 2.5B on each of the four types of resources, you can get over 360M of each resource in rewards. If you can spend 20B each, you can get more than 3B each.

  • 1,250M – Keep Lv29 or so
  • 2,500M – Keep Lv31 or so
  • 5,000M – Keep Lv33 or so


A-3) Monarch Talent Lv22 “Resources Critical”

When you open a resource item, if you are lucky, you will get double the amount. The probability of this increases by 10%.

A-4) Other Basic TIPS

Don’t open a Resource Box

There are only demerits if you open them right away.

  • If you have too much food, it will be consumed for upkeep.
  • If you happen to be attacked and lose, you will be looted.

Open them only when you are going to use them, such as for construction or making soldiers.

Don’t buy from the Store

Very expensive.

Buy on the Black Market only in an Emergency

The price is better than the store, but it is not a good deal.

(For example, 5M of resources costs 1,800 gems, but it takes more than a day to gather 1,800 gems, while 5M of resources can be gathered in a few hours. It’s not a balanced price.)

Reference: Black Market Item List

B) Gathering (Resource Tile)

The following two are important.

– Extra Resources from Gathering
– Gathering speed

Note – “Troop Load”
Newbies often make the mistake of thinking that “troop load” is important, but it is not. Increasing it will not improve the efficiency of gathering from resource tiles.
It only reduces the number of troops needed to gather. This is useful in the early game when you don’t have many troops, but useless in the late game when you have a lot of troops.
(Note – It is useful when “plundering” resources by attacking other players, as more resources can be taken in a single attack.)

B-1) Increase Extra Resources from Gathering

These allow you to get more than twice as many resources from a 7M resource tile, for example. (Up to about 21M)

Gathering Report for 7M Resource Tile
Gathering Report for 7M Resource Tile

B-1-1) Gathering with Queen Jindeok (+40%)

The original skill gives you an additional bonus after gathering.
(for Normal Resource Tile +40%, for Alliance Resource Tile +20%)

In the early stages of the game, when it is difficult to obtain the Queen Jindeok, you can temporarily use the purple generals Constance I (+20%) or Shimazu Yoshihiro (+30% food) instead. They can be obtained at taverns or by collecting slate fragments at relics, etc.

In the end, it is ideal to gather with 6 Queen Jindeok.

Note that the number of marches can be increased to 5 at Academy level 25 and to 6 at Academy level 35.
Details: How to get more March Slot

How to get her

Queen Jindeok can be obtained at a tavern (21M gold). Therefore, it is possible to obtain it without paying.

However, if you don’t actively refresh your tavern with gems, it will be difficult to get 6 of them.
Related: Drop Rate of Historic General at Tavern (Test Results)

For reference, in my case, I started updating and hiring gems for my tavern frequently around keep level 30. After that, I got my 1st, and then my 6th, when I was at keep level 33.

B-1-2) Have many Korean Subordinate Cities

Just by having Korean subordinate cities, you get an additional bonus from the subordinate city buff.

The better the rank of the subordinate city, the more you get. (+3 ~ 15%)

For example, if you have 9 Korean epics, you will get +135%, and if you finish gathering all 7M resource tiles, you will get 16.45M.

Reference: List of Subordinate City Buff

B-1-3) Make Culture Korea & increase the Quality of In-city Subordinate City (max +15%)

Same as above.

You can have a maximum of 12 subordinate cities, one of which is a subordinate city within a city.

For more information on how to increase quality and cost, see this article.
Subordinate City Complete Guide

B-1-4) Monarch Talent Lv26 “Gathering Boost” (+20%)

Increases 4 levels from Lv26 to 29, +20%.

B-1-5) Equip Champion’s Set (4) to General (+10%)

Champion's Set (4)

Equipping the following 4 will give you +10% due to set buffs.

  • Champion’s Helmet
  • Champion’s Armor
  • Champion’s Leg Armor
  • Champion’s Boots

Note: Does not work if equipped on an assistant. Only for the main general.

B-1-6) Art Hall – Art Treasure Buff (+10%)

Activating “Mona Lisa” will give you an extra resource buff of +10%.

Activation Requirement

  • Oil Painting Hall
  • Jewelry Hall
  • Ancient Coin Hall

Reference: Exhibition Hall Reward List (Art Hall)

B-1-7) Research – Advancing the “Alliance” Category

By advancing the Alliance category of research, you can increase the gathering bonus for “Alliance Resource Tile”.

  • Alliance Agriculture Bonus (Food)
  • Alliance Lumbering bonus (Lumber)
  • Alliance Masonry Bonus (Stone)
  • Alliance Mining Bonus (Ore)

B-2) Faster Gathering Speed

B-2-1) Always maximize “Politics” of the general

Increasing politics increases the gathering speed.

Therefore, in cultivation, you only need to increase the politics.

(If you can afford it, you can also increase leadership. It will increase the march speed.)

It is recommended to always keep the level of the Queen Jindeok at maximum, Star Level 5, and Cultivation at +500.

B-2-2) Use a Skill Book (+45%)

For more details, please refer to the following article “I) Resource Gathering General”.

Best Skills Guide – what skills should you add?

B-2-3) Research – Advance the “Advancement” category (Max +180%)

  • Scythe (Food +10%)
  • Bucksaw (Lumber +10%)
  • Pickaxe (Stone +10%)
  • Furnace (Ore +10%)
  • Adv Forage (Food +70%)
  • Adv Logging (Lumber +70%)
  • Adv Quarrier (Stone +70%)
  • Adv Furnace (Ore +70%)
  • Super Forage (Food +100%)
  • Super Logging (Lumber +100%)
  • Super Quarrier (Stone +100%)
  • Super Furnace (Ore +100%)

B-2-4) Before reaching resource tile, change Monarch Gear to Crystal that increases gathering speed (+50% for Lv8)

See the following article for details.

Reference: How to use Monarch Gear, which Beginners Tend to Make Mistakes

B-2-5) Before reaching resource tile, change General Equipment to the King’s Equipment

Note: Does not work if equipped on an assistant. Only for the main general.

Gathering Speed Buff of King’s Equipment

The King’s equipment has a buff to increase gathering speed.

Gathering Speed Buff of King's Equipment

* The following figures are for 5 stars.

Food (+75%)

  • King’s Spear +25%
  • Fearless King’s Helmet +25%
  • Courageous King’s Armor +25%

Lumber (+100%)

  • King’s Axe +50%
  • Courageous King’s Leg Armor +25%
  • Fearless King’s Armor +25%

Stone (+100%)

  • King’s Sword +50%
  • Fearless King’s Leg Armor +25%
  • Courageous King’s Boots +25%

Ore (+75%)

  • King’s Bow +25%
  • Courageous King’s Helmet +25%
  • Fearless King’s Boots +25%

In addition, the following 3 types can be refined to add more buffs to the gathering speed.
(Max 15% x4 = 60%)

  • Helmet
  • Leg Armor
  • Weapons

Thus, you can get the following buffs at maximum.

– Food (+195%)
– Lumber (+220%)
– Stone (+220%)
– Ore (+195%)

Need to change equipment

However, to increase the gathering bonus, you need 4 Champion’s equipment, which cannot be combined with King’s equipment.

However, to activate the gathering speed buff, you only need to equip it when you arrive at a resource tile. (This also applies to monarch gear.)


– Before arriving at the resource tile, equip the king’s equipment.
– After arriving at the resource tile, equip the champion’s set (4).

If you change your equipment like this, you can get the advantages of both.

If you don’t want to change

…but it is a hassle.

If you don’t want to do all this, we recommend that you have the following equipped at all times.

King’s weapon + Champion’s Set (4)

  • King’s equipment, weapons only
    • Resource Gathering Speed
      • Food / Ore (Spear / Bow)
        • Base: +25%
        • with Refine: Max +85% (=25% + (15% x 4))
      • Lumber / Stone (Axe / Sword)
        • Base: +50%
        • with Refine: Max +110% (=50% + (15% x 4))
  • Champion’s Set (4) Helmet, Armor, Leg Armor, Boots
    • Resource Gathering Speed
      • Base:
        • +17.5% (=set buff 10% + basic buff 7.5%)
      • with Refine:
        • Max +97.5% (any 1 resource type)
        • = 17.5% + ((10% x 4) x 2))
        • helmet & leg armor only
    • Extra Resources from Gathering +10%

In total.
– Extra Resources from Gathering +10%
– Resource Gathering Speed
…… for Spear (Food) Max +182.5%
…… for Axe (Lumber) Max +207.5%
…… for Sword (Stone) Max +207.5%
…… for Bow (Ore) Max +182.5%

Reference 1- King’s equipment is replaced by Dragon Set (2)

  • Dragon Set (2) Weapon, Ring
    • Resource Gathering Speed
      • Base:
        • +15%
      • with Refine:
        • Max +95% (any 1 resource type)
        • = 15% + (20% x 4)
        • weapon only

Total with Champion Set
– Resource Gathering Speed (any 1 type) Max +192.5%
– Extra Resources from Gathering +10%

So, Dragon Set is not strongly recommended considering the cost effectiveness of crafting and refinement.

Reference 2- King’s equipment is replaced by Transcendence Set (2)

  • Transcendence Set (2) Weapon, Ring
    • Resource Gathering Speed
      • Base:
        • +8%
      • with Refine:
        • Max +32% (any 1 resource type)
        • = 8% + (6% x 4)
        • weapon only

Total with Champion Set
– Resource Gathering Speed (any 1 type) Max +129.5%
– Extra Resources from Gathering +10%

B-2-6) Always use items that speed up gathering (+50%)

Use one of the following

  • 24 hour Resources Gathering Speedup (+50%)
  • 8 hour Resources Gathering Speedup (+50%)
How to get
  • “Wheel of Fortune” at the Tavern
  • “Lucky box” of “Lucky Composing Event” (not included depending on the timing of the event)
  • etc.

IMPORTANT – If the effect expires during resource gathering and you use the speed-up item again

If you use a speed-up item while gathering resources, the gathering time will be recalculated.

Therefore, if you do not have a gathering speed-up crystal (monarch gear) equipped at that time, the gathering time may INCREASE.

This also means that if you are gathering with more than one type of resource tile, the gathering time of one of the resource tiles will always increase.

If all of the following apply, the gathering time will increase.
– When you arrived at a resource tile, you had used a gathering speed-up item.
– When you arrived at the resource tile, you had equipped a crystal (monarch gear) that increases the gathering speed.
– During gathering, you used a gathering speed-up item while not equipping the above crystal.

The time will not be increased in the following cases.
– Originally, you were not equipped with a crystal.
– You were equipped with a crystal, but your crystal level was 7 or less (41% or less) and you had not used the gathering speed-up item.

B-2-7) Buffs gained by being in an Alliance Hive (+25%)

Effect of alliance city buffs.

(Can be found by looking at the Alliance City details in the center of the hive.)

B-2-8) Gather in High-Level Resource Tile (Lv12+) (200K/h)

The higher the level, the faster the base gathering speed.

Recommendation: Lv12 or higher.


  • Lv6 – 182,000/h
  • Lv7 – 184,000/h
  • Lv8 – 186,000/h
  • Lv9 – 188,000/h
  • Lv10 – 192,000/h
  • Lv11 – 196,000/h
  • Lv12 – 200,000 /h
  • Lv13 – 200,000 /h
  • Lv14 – 200,000/h

B-2-9) Always gather with Alliance Resource Tile

This simply means that you are less likely to have free time after you are done gathering.

(It does not mean that you can gather more Alliance resource tile in less time than resource tile.)

As a player’s level increases, even a Lv14 resource tile can be completed in a short time. In particular, if you send out a resource tile to gather before going to bed, you will finish gathering it by morning, leaving you with several hours of free time.

With alliance resource tile, this is not the case, as you can extend the gathering time to a day or more by sending a large number of troops.

B-2-10) Research – advancing the “Alliance” category

By advancing the “Alliance” category of research, you can increase the speed of gathering alliance resource tiles.

  • Alliance Agriculture (Food)
  • Alliance Lumbering (Lumber)
  • Alliance Masonry (Stone)
  • Alliance Mining (Ore)
  • Super Alliance Agriculture (Food)
  • Super Alliance Lumbering (Lumber)
  • Super Alliance Masonry (Stone)
  • Super Alliance Mining (Ore)

B-2-11) Art Hall – Art Treasure Buff (+10%)

Activating “Mona Lisa” will give you a gathering speed buff of +10%.

Activation Requirement

  • Oil Painting Hall
  • Jewelry Hall
  • Ancient Coin Hall

Reference: Exhibition Hall Reward List (Art Hall)

B-2-12) Increase the keep level

Increasing the keep level will slightly increase the gathering speed.


  • k33 – 156,000/Hour
  • k34 – 158,000/Hour

This will change the gathering speed of each resource tile in B-2-8 above.

B-3) Recommended Assistant General & Main General Combinations

Food gathering

  • Main General: Queen Jindeok
    • Extra Resources from Gathering +40%
  • Assistant General: Shimazu Yoshihiro
    • Extra resources from gathering (food) +30%, Gathering speed +10%

Wood Gathering

  • Main General: Queen Jindeok
    • Extra Resources from Gathering +40%
  • Assistant General: Lucy or Gaius Marius
    • Gathering speed +15%

Stone Gathering

  • Main General: Queen Jindeok
    • Extra Resources from Gathering +40%
  • Assistant General: Lucy or Gaius Marius
    • Gathering speed +15%

Ore Gathering

  • Main General: Queen Jindeok
    • Extra Resources from Gathering +40%
  • Assistant General: Gaius Marius
    • Gathering speed (ore) +30%

Note: In this case, the skill book for ore gathering speed needs to be attached to Gaius, not Queen Jindeok. If it is attached to Jindeok, Gaius’ basic skills will be disabled.

Note that only Lv 3 or 4 of the skill book of ore gathering speed can be added to Gaius; Lv 1 and 2 cannot be added.

B-4) Other Basic TIPS

Resource Tile Conflict

When two players head to a resource tile that is not occupied by anyone, if the player who heads later is bubbling, he turns back without attacking. If he is not bubbled, it will be an attack. (It doesn’t matter if the player who entered the resource tile first is bubbling or not.)

C) Production

Model case – Keep level 30: each resource 1.5M/h (36M/day x4 types)

To begin with: I don’t recommend focusing too much on increasing production.

There are 2 main reasons.

  • Because monster hunting and gathering are more efficient than production.
  • As noted in C-1 below, it is not worth the cost.

Therefore, it is recommended that the production increase be done within a reasonable range.

C-1) Raise level of resource tile in front of wall

(Below is production per hour / Except for farms)

  • Lv25 – 18,000
  • Lv26 – 20,000
  • Lv27 – 22,000
  • Lv28 – 24,000
  • Lv29 – 26,000
  • Lv30 – 28,000
  • Lv31 – 31,000
  • Lv32 – 34,000
  • Lv33 – 37,000
  • Lv34 – 41,000
  • Lv35 – 45,000
  • Lv36 – 49,000
  • Lv37 – 54,000
  • Lv38 – 59,000
  • Lv39 – 64,000
  • Lv40 – 70,000

* With the ver4 major update on 11/4/2021, the higher the resource tile level, the better the production growth.

Since production growth is good up to Lv30, and poor after Lv31, it is best to aim to get all resource tiles to Lv30 first.

(Below is production per hour / Except for farms)

  • Lv25 – 18,000
  • Lv26 – 19,800
  • Lv27 – 21,600
  • Lv28 – 23,400
  • Lv29 – 25,200
  • Lv30 – 27,000
  • Lv31 – 28,300
  • Lv32 – 29,400
  • Lv33 – 30,400
  • Lv34 – 31,500
  • Lv35 – 32,900

Note – It is not recommended to raise the level of the resource tile too high

The amount of resources required for the upgrade and the resulting increase in production would take more than a year to pay for the upgrade.

For example, if a sawmill is upgraded from Lv29 to 30, the upgrade requires about 114M resources.
The increase in production is 2000/h.
If the production speed buff were 600%, it would take more than a year to recover the original cost.

C-2) Set up 1 or 2 Army Camps & use everything else as Resources

Personally, I have never had a problem with having a small number of army camps, so I recommend this approach.

(In addition, the advantage of increasing the number of army camps is “the speed at which you can create troops” & “the number of troops you can create at one time”.)

For reference, in my case, I set up 7 resource tiles for each resource and 2 army camps.

If considering only attack, it’s better to use more resources for one of the troops, but if considering defense, all troops are needed, so I evenly distribute them.

Shouldn’t we have more army camps?

If one follows the precautions in C-1, there would be no major problem with more army camps, since the amount of production cannot be increased much in the first place.

One caveat, however, is that there is a quest to get the production rate above a certain speed. Too many army camps will make this difficult to complete.

C-3) Research – Advancing the “Advancement” category (+170%)

  • Graziery (Food +1000)
  • Felling Axe (Lumber +1000)
  • Masonry (Stone +1000)
  • Mining (ore +1000)
  • Advanced Agriculture (Food +70%)
  • Advanced Lumbering (Lumber +70%)
  • Advanced Masonry (Stone +70%)
  • Advanced Mining (Ore +70%)
  • Super Agriculture (Food +100%)
  • Super Lumbering (Lumber +100%)
  • Super Masonry (Stone +100%)
  • Super Mining (Ore +100%)

C-4) Assign Shajar al-Durr as Defense General (+100%)

You can assign Shajar for normal non-warfare, and assign a defense general for combat only during KE (kill events) and other times of battle.

Shajar does not appear in the tavern, but can be obtained for free from the Great General Chest.

C-5) Always use items that speed up Production (+200%)

Use one of the following

  • 24 Hour Resource Speedup (+100%)
  • Adv 8 Hour Resource Speedup (+200%)
How to get

The main way to obtain these items is the black market.
Reference: Black Market Item List

لدي سؤال
كيف يمكنني جمع الطعام بدون استهلاك في alt

Ciao, intanto complimenti per il tuo lavoro, molto utile. grazie

Domanda: la regina Jindeok, quando torna dalle risorse dovrebbe avere almeno il 40% in più. l’ho pure potenziata e aggiunto l’equipaggiamento, quindi dovrebbe avere un 10% in più, ma torna a malapena con il 30% in più. hai idea perchè?
grazie mille

Hello, first of all congratulations for your work, very useful. Thank you

Question: Queen Jindeok, when she returns from the resources she should have at least 40% more. I also upgraded her and added equipment, so she should have 10% more, but she barely comes back with 30% more. do you have any idea why?
A thousand thanks


Aren’t you talking about the Alliance Resource Area?
There, the addition by Jindeok is 20%.


Thank you very much the study.
Let me ask you a question.
The person looking for the “mysterious puzzle” in front of the castle wall has disappeared since yesterday.
Why is this?
I don’t know why, but I was kicked out of the alliance yesterday. (I did not do anything against the rules of the alliance.)
Is there a connection with this?
Can someone please tell me how to restore the mysterious puzzle?


It seems to be a glitch and you may want to contact evony about it.


If you turn off notifications for puzzles, he will disappear. To bring him back, tap the mini-game icon in the castle and you will see a human icon, turn on the notification.


In ore resource gathering, you say that Gaius should have a lvl 3 or 4 ore gathering speed up book, but does it add up to the basic skills he has, or does it override them?


If both the main general and his assistant wear the champion set when gathering, will the amount of additional resources gathered be increased by +20%?


Good afternoon.

My question is that the reward in the resource consuming return event says “about 7M x 4 Type”, but the resource chest I receive is 120 “Special Resource Chest”. Why is it “about 7M x 4 types”?

The Special Resource Chest is one or more 100K of the 4 types, so if you get only one, you will get only 12M resources in total, right?

However, “about 7M x 4 Type” means a total of 28M, which is more than twice the amount of resources.
Does the Special Resource Chest always produce more than 2 resources?

The amount of resources you can get when you open the “Special Resource Chest” is random, but when we verified it by opening a large amount at once, the expected value was around 60% of each type of resource, so the values calculated based on this assumption are listed. (100k x 60% x 120 chests x 4 types = about 7M x 4 types)

In fact, I actually opened 120 chests at the same time and got such a result.

(The probability was not written in the item details before, but now it is written as 62.5% for each type of resource, and the result is actually close to that.)


Thank you for your quick response.
I will continue to refer to them.

It should be noted concerning gathering King’s Gear suggestions for rss tiles, that for both lumber and food [but not ore or stone], the transcendence boots & ring [or dragon boots/ring] may be ADDED along with the above suggested King’s gear- you have the boot and ring gear slots free with the king’s gear you need].
This can even be done with my previous comment’s suggestion of the addition of a King Helmet for Lumber & King Legs for Food, and refining them for Lumber and Food gathering respectively, adding the addition of 15%x4= 60% gathering speed for Food & Lumber, even though these 2 king pieces have no innate/basic buff for gathering of those rss.

Hello, thanks for this post! I want to ask you: Is there a difference if Attila or Amir Timur is sent as an assistant for the mosaics?

Md nasim

Hey i have 1 blue & 1 purple Korean sub city, my monach level is 28, my monslisa can give me 12% extra resources, i use queen jindeok, at last i use champions set, my alliance tile bonus is maxed,
So my total bonus is (21% for sub city +15% for monach talent +12% for monslisa +10% champions set +40% alliance bonus +20% for queen jindeok ) 128%
Today i gather in alliance tile before recalling i saw it was 22m , after recalling i calculate my total resources it was 34m but it should be around 45 m
Why this happened? please tell me



I have a question regarding skillbooks for Queen Jindeok. Can I assign skillbooks of Food, Wood and Stone gathering speed to the same Jindeok OR will they replace the applied ones?

Parabens pelo seu trabalho ele é incrivel, Não seria melhor equipar a Jindeok com os conjuntos de rei…. Desde ja obrigado pela atençao..

Happy Dip

Would you be willing to add Pan to the stamina efficiency part of this web page.


Hi, thank you for all your informative information! I am afraid I have a few elementary questions.

1 I have a general and an assistant to gather resources, does the politics of the assistant have any effect on the speed of gathering?

2 I don’t know how many soldiers I need to send to gather the resource tile of level 15. I would be happy if you could give me a guideline.


When I used the 50% increase in gathering speed for 24 hours, 6 hours of gathering became 5 hours.
Is this a bug?

There might be a lvl cap. I’ve seen my gem mine time go from 1d 12h to 1d 2h. Also, there are events that cut farming time from tiles 50% occasionally.


I asked support if there was any way to get the “XX exploitation” skill book, which is said to be exclusive to the new server, on a regular basis.
The answer was that it is randomly available in the skill books shop at the Academy, but does anyone have any experience purchasing it? I am currently trying, 100 times a day, and it is not showing up.

I don’t know if I can trust the Evony Support Center because recently they have been waiting a week for an answer and also giving me lame answers. (lol)

[Support Centers reply]
It has been confirmed that you can get this skill book through the Academy-Skill Books Shop.

Hi, just one info about skill books for exploitation – I saw them on one of newer servers and was told it was possible to get them only in one event at very beginning of that server. If they lied to me, I’m lying to you . . .

Nice to meet you. Thank you for the very useful information.
I always refer to you!
I have a question about Queen Jindeok. I have equipped it as you suggested, and I have maxed out the level, but the amount of gathering and the amount of additional gains are stuck at a certain point, and they are not increasing. The speed of gathering gets faster as level increases, but… is there a limit? What should I do to increase the amount of gathering?


Я покупаю ресурсы на чёрном рынке за золото. 5 миллионов ресурса стоит 1,763 миллиона золота


Anyone notice that after v4.27, gathering times have cut in half? I can clear out a lvl15 tile in about 3 hrs. sometimes less. Is this a glitch or permanent?


The basic gathering speed has been increased.
From about 200k/h to about 300k/h

Hi. Regarding the assistant, can you please confirm if Constance can assist to Jindeok to accumulate the amount of gathered rss?

Btw, how do you think that for the main general, instead of assigning another good general (for example: Tommyris follows Elektra), which is not really easy to find especially for non-cash players, we assign Barbarossa/Li Shimin with March size lv4 to be the assistant (Barba for mains other than mounted, and Li Shimin for mains other than ranged because their basic skills are overlapped by the Attk skill of the main gen in same troop type). Gengis Khan and King Arthur also have basic skill of March size yet I think they cannot learn march size skill book and fall behind those two, and Isabella requires Dragon which is wasteful


It seems that when Constance is assigned as an assistant, an up bonus is given if the resource is gathered completely, and no bonus is given if the gathering is cut off halfway through.

If I have sent all troops to gather but not enough to my emergency use, which way should I do first? Open resource boxes? Refresh the black market and buy from it? Patrol for more boxes? tax resources by gems and free texes and duty officer?


l am New player in this game. l checked the gathering speed buffs. Whenever you change gears or apply gathering speed buff, The game calculate the gathering speed again that moment. You can check the numbers of gathering RSS per SECOND.

I know you tend to focus on the best generals, but for people at the very beginning of the game it would be useful to know who else to use if you don’t have Queen Jindeok. I for example have Constance I as my main gatherer, and I’ve added ore gathering speed and ore exploitation skill books to her, so I think it is not too far from Queen Jindeok but much easier to get? The one caveat to this is that I have one level 3 ore exploitation and one level 3 lumber exploitation skill book equipped on my generals but I don’t seem to have gotten any more exploitation skill books in a long time. Is this normal? Seems like exploitation skill books are too rare.

Thanks for your input. That makes it easier to understand. I added a note about Constance and Shimazu.

I have been playing for almost 2 years and I have never gotten the skill book for exploitation.
I looked at the details of the item “skillbook chest” and it is not in there.
I don’t know what the truth is, but maybe it was temporarily implemented only on some servers.

excuse me

In my opinion, it would be better not to maximize the level of the resource tile in front of the wall, even under the current specifications.

Mine Lv32 – 34,000 to Lv33 – 37,000, an increase of 3,000, but it would take 262,185,000 resources (35d 6h 58m at +291% construction speed) to upgrade this.

Now I am resource production speed +637%. (General 100+gear 41+offer 100+items 100+talent 50+subcity 20+research 170+alliances?)

It will take 494 days to recover the investment RSS, provided that we do not overflow resources and do not run out of buffs.
(More days are needed for the other 3 types of resources with different gears.)

I am honestly wondering if it would be better to invest in cavalry for rallying, as it is too long until the original investment is paid off.

I think that is certainly true.
However, I still think that we should still upgrade when the time is right.

For example, if you are in a situation where you only need to spend 70M more food to reach 5B in the RSS consumption reduction event.
Since you will receive 110M RSS each in rewards, you will not only get the payback but also gain when you start the upgrade.

I think the decision of gain or loss should not be based on one point alone, but rather on a comprehensive view.


I was told by Evony’s customer support that researching alliance mines will increase the speed of allied mining for all members of the alliance.

I heard that it increases not only the speed of an individual, but also the speed of all other players in the alliance.

I don’t really feel that way in my experience, is that true?


I have a question about the resource tile.
A member of the alliance said that after the low level resource tiles are gathered, the high level tiles will pop up.
My impression is that there are a lot of high level resource tiles around the King’s Castle and about the same level of resources pop up.


If you open the world map and check the “Resources” box in the lower right corner, you will see the areas of resources and monster levels.
The closer you are to the throne, the more likely you are to find higher levels of both resources and monsters.


Thank you for your response, Hijikata-san.
I had overlooked that feature. I checked and you are right.
I will talk to the members.


Good evening. Regarding the egg that can be collected from the resource tile at level 15, every time I go to collect it with 6 jindeok, only one of them gets the egg. They are all level 40 and full king equipment. What is different? Please let me know if there is any best equipment for the jindeok.


Looking at the egg, only one can be earned on a daily basis


Excuse my comment on an old article.

I bow to your verification every time.
I am a newcomer to this game and have only been playing for a few months, but I too am a verification enthusiast and enjoy playing the game with various verifications.

Now, actually, in one of those verifications, I found a phenomenon that I think may be different from your verification results.
It is the change of gathering time by equipping the monarch gear.
As a result, there was a change in the gathering speed when the gear was attached or removed during the gathering.

The reason for the question in the first place was that the troops who went to the resources came back almost an hour earlier than those who went to the relics, even though I had set the gathering end time for the relics and the resource tiles to be about the same and left them alone.
What I did change was to change the gear for gathering in the middle of the gathering.

So I looked at it in detail. The “Gathered Resources” value seen on the detail screen that appears when you tap the resource tile is updated every second, but the increase (difference) was different depending on whether the gear was equipped or unequipped.
Converting the value increased per second into a value per hour, I found that the change was equivalent to the buff by equipping gear.

So, I try to equip relative gear as much as possible while gathering, but is this change also a glitch?

I attacked different cities of Keep Level 7… Both had more than 1M of Food as well as Lumber. But even after wining both the attacks, I got 0 resources.
At the same time, when someone else attacked me at same Keep Level 7, they got a loot of 300K

Hello there.. i’m trying to plunder a lvl 9 keep. i scouted, and it has over 50M rss. yet my troops return with 0 rss.
what level is required to be able to plunder that?

The larger the warehouse the more resources that can be safe guarded. You cannot get those resources.

Thank you very much for your help. To be honest, I’m at such a low level that it’s not even easy to read and understand the administrator’s article. I have the following three questions
(1) When you tap on the bar at the top of the castle screen, you can see a list of resources, right? If you tap on it, you will see a list of resources, and there it says “Gathering Warehouse Capacity: 0/100B”. If it says “0”, then it can’t be stored, right? How do I add them?
(2) Also, when I tap the hand that appears in the warehouse, it seems to be collecting resources, but I still don’t know what I have to do to get that hand to appear.
(3) The number of resources on the bar at the top of the screen is reduced when you get hit by an enemy, right? I’m sorry I can’t verify this because I don’t want to get hit by the enemy and I’m protecting myself with a bubble. I’m not sure what to do.

1 You don’t need to worry about that place. That shows how much of your current resources you’ve gathered with the resource tiles. Production is not included. It also decreases when you use resources.
2 This is displayed when something is produced in front of the wall and can be collected.
3 If you lose, it will be taken. However, you can increase the protection limit by raising your warehouse level.

King’s Spear +25% (rss food). I think now is 15% . Congratulation for the guide! Absolutely essential. Ciao

Question please.. How to increase the amount of storage in the alliance warehouse


Hello, thank you for all the useful information.
It seems that there is no mention of forced labor in the camps when acquiring resources, but what is the actual situation?
Also, I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to acquire prisoners of war efficiently.
Thank you very much.

It’s useless; you get very little resources for a cooldown time of 6 hours per round.
You can get enough captives for a couple of weeks by burning a few enemies in a server war every two weeks.


Is there any way to complete the 5B resource consuming return event each time without robbing from Alt accounts or charging?

If you practice all of the above around k33, you may just about be able to do it.
It is of course necessary to always gather with 5 Jindeok and to save resources without using until the consuming return event starts, and then it depends on how much monster hunting you can do.
I think it will be tough unless your alliance is killing event bosses Lv3-5 and B14-15 with frequent rallies.

Nice to meet you.
I am still a beginner and this is very helpful. Thank you very much.
In the “Need to change equipment” section, it says “After arriving at the resource tile, equip the champion’s set (4)”, but do I leave it equipped until I finish gathering?
I would appreciate your advice on this. Thank you very much.

Hello – following up on this! When you say replace it by the end of gathering do you mean we only need to equip the champions gear right before the gathering finishes?

Or is it that once i arrive at the tile and my general starts gathering, I switch to champions gear, and then remove it? I ask because i’m trying to figure out how many champion sets i need if i wanted to have all 5 marches gathering at once overnight. Thank you for your help!


What is the difference in research between “cooking” and “adv silo”?


When I take resources from an alt account, how high should the alt account’s lvl be?
I’ve heard that I can’t take much resources if the keep lvl is low.

The opposite. If you want to take a lot in one attack, increase the attacker’s troop load. (Use a general with a high troop load, and attack with a high level siege machine)
If you increase the warehouse level of the alt account, the amount you can take will decrease.

Hello. That is a case where you are limited in the resources you can take away due to differences in level, etc., correct?

I think you are talking about ALT, but you should raise it as much as you can.

Once you raise it to a certain level, it will no longer be restricted, but I have not verified the specific level, so I don’t know.


Hi, I’m always interested in your work.
I have a rudimentary question: you say that if you have a lot of food, it will be consumed by soldiers, but if you run out of food, won’t the number of soldiers decrease?


I saw Shajar al-Durr 3 times in the tavern while I had the Arabian culture. I didn’t buy her since I could get her for free eventually. I got two and sold the 2nd one. Can’t figure out what culture has Nathanael Greene. Tried American and European for months. No luck.


Are there any skills or suitable generals that affect the speed and amount of exploration of relics?
With the introduction of the “fragments” feature, the exploration of ruins has suddenly become more popular, but everyone is still trying to figure it out through trial and error without a clear indicator like resource gathering.

In the case of relics, the amount gathered per hour is the same regardless of which general you use. I did a comparison and verification with generals with highly different abilities.

Using a general with high politics or a general with a gathering speed skill does not increase the gathering speed.
It does not matter how high or low your general level is.

Also, using a general with a troop load skill or troops with a high troop load will only increase the amount of time you can stay, but not the amount of items you can gather per hour.

To increase the amount gathered per hour, it is recommended to go to high level relics (mysterious relics) and to advance your research (relics in the alliance category).

For more information, see the following.
Relic – How to Gain More or Explore Faster (with Verification Report)

Is there any way to increase the speed of exploring the relics?
Also, how many friends do I need to complete the exploration in time to get the fragments?


Hi! How does one synthesize the speed ups for gathering? I do not see an option to compose three 24hr ones into 8?

“Gathering” speed-up items cannot be synthesized.
You can only synthesize “Production” speed-up items. (from the item inventory screen.)

Thank you for all the useful information.
I agree with you that buying resources on the black market should be avoided as much as possible. 360 gems per 1M seems rather expensive.
How many gems per 1M do you think are worth exchanging?
I’m sure it depends on how much the player pays, how far along they are in the game, etc., but I’d appreciate it if you could share your thoughts with us, admins.
I’d like to use this as a reference for opportunities other than the black market where gems can be converted into resources (Tax, Patrol, etc.).

In my case, originally, I don’t want to buy it unless I can save more than 66 gems per 1M.
If I had 6 hours to gather, I could gather 300 gems, or 15M resources.
Also, 700 gems is reasonable considering the 6 hours of reduced fees.
So in my case, 15M = 1000 gems seems reasonable.
(I think it’s reasonable to think in terms of the amount gathered per hour, so this baseline will vary from person to person.)

Thank you very much. That’s very helpful!

It would be great if you could create an article on how to use gems effectively when you have time. I think it would be difficult to do so, since it depends on how each person enjoys the game and how much they pay.
