Paid packages: the best value for which ones to buy and when?

8/15/2023 – Updated with the latest details of the limited time promotion.
2/14/2022 – Updated the entire article with the contents of the latest package.
2/1/2021 – Added “Annual Membership” vs “Event Package”.

Mainly for players with a budget of less than $100 per month, but the following purchases are probably the most cost-effective.

– Buy only when there’s a bonus you want in a “Limited Time Promotion”.
– Buy only “Event Package” or “Super Value Activity Package”.
– Buy only during the 3-day weekend.
– Buy a $4.99 pack only once a day.

(See below for details on each.)

This would be as follows.

  • buy once a week -> about $20 a month
  • buy 3 times a week -> about $60 a month.

The following is an example of how to buy. (More on the terms in the text later.)

How to buy by case

1. Focus on Research

“Super Value Activity Package” $4.99 for the weekend
(limited time promotion : speed up pack)

What you want in this case is a speedup and gold.

This will give to you below.

  • about 33 days of Speedups
  • 26,000 Gems
  • 2.5M Gold
  • about 7.5M Resources x 4 types
  • etc

If you don’t have enough gold, you can make up for it by redeeming the gems for keeps.
5,000 gems will give you about 5M gold.
(Though you’ll need to level up your Keeps and research the redemption rate beforehand.)

2. Focus on Construction (1) When resources are sufficient

“Super Value Activity Package” $4.99 for the weekend
(limited time promotion : speed up pack)

What you want in this case is a speed up.

This will give to you below.

  • about 33 days of Speedups
  • 26,000 Gems
  • 2.5M Gold
  • about 7.5M Resources x 4 types
  • etc

3. Focus on Construction (2) If you don’t have enough resources

“Event Package” $4.99
(Limited Time Promotion : Speed Up Pack)

This will give to you below.

  • 26,000 Gems
  • 3M Gold
  • 23.5M Resources x 4 type
  • about 22 days of Speedups
  • and other items such as resurrection, research, and enhancement
  • (For a $4.99 pack)

If you’re still short on resources, buy gems or gold on the black market.
Gems can also be used to cover the shortage of speed-ups.

(I mainly do this during “Consuming Return Event – Resource Consuming version”. In order to consume a lot of resources, I want to speed up the construction process, so I need to have some speed-up items.)

4. Focus on Server war & Kill event

“Event Package” $4.99
(limited time promotion: Materials & Skills Pack)

I want to have as many items to revive the dead as possible in case I lose.
I also want to strengthen my generals and equipment as much as possible, so I want refining stones, materials and skills.

5. Focus on Getting New Subordinate City

“Event Package” $4.99
(limited time promotion: as needed at the time)

You can get 20 “Subordinate City Clue Chest” only during the subordinate cities event.

A) Buy only when there’s a bonus you want in a “Limited Time Promotion”

When speed packs are shown in a limited time promotion.
When speed packs are shown in a limited time promotion.

This is very important. The content is gorgeous.

The “Limited Time Promotion” is a campaign that gives you an extra package based on the total amount of gems you buy.

It’s labeled “Limited Time” but it’s always on at the moment.

You can see it by pressing the button in the bottom left corner of the screen in the city.

(Note – if you’re new to the game, the “First Purchase” button, not the “Limited Time Promotion” button)

There are 4 different types of packages that you can receive, and they change every hour.
(The game screen shows a countdown of more than two hours, but the packages actually switch after one hour. If the package doesn’t switch, you can restart the game.)

Note – I always recommend restarting the game when you buy it. The display may not switch, but internally it may be switching to another pack.

Also, there are 3 tiered packages depending on the total amount of Basic Gems purchased.

  • Tier1 – 1,000 Gems (=about $5)
  • Tier2 – 24,000 Gems (=about $100)
  • Tier3 – 100,000 Gems (=about $400)

Each tiered package is limited to one per day.

Types of “Limited Time Package”

  • Speed Up
  • Resources
  • Materials and Skills
  • Research

Until the middle of the game, “Speed Up” will be most useful.

Based on the rate of return, “Materials and Skills” is the best value.
This is probably the best choice at the end of the game.

“Research” is not bad, but if the gold redemption rate for Keep is increasing, “Speed Up” is fine.

I don’t recommend “Resources” because of its poor redemption rate.

Reference: Package contents after the 2nd Tier

B) Buy only “Event Package” or “Super Value Activity Package”

Normally, buy “Event Package”.
If you need a “Speed Up” urgently, buy “Super Value Activity Package”.

The other packs, Membership and Bounty Cave are not worth buying because they are more expensive.

B-1) Event Package

Periodically, the package is sold only during the event period (about 10 days), which is held about twice a month.

The contents are

  • 26,000 Gems
  • 3M Gold
  • 23.5M Resources x 4 type
  • about 4 days of Speedups
  • and other items such as resurrection, research, and enhancement
  • (For a $4.99 pack)

Over the long term, buying a number of these packs will help you save up for the Source of Life, Runestone, and Research Stone later on.

Note that there are 5 grades of this package, and each time you buy one, you can buy the next grade of the pack (increasing in price and content).

$4.99 -> $ 9.99 -> $19.99 -> $49.99 -> $99.99

If you want the fifth grade, you need to buy the fifth grade within a day.

Note that you can only buy up to 1 of the first four packages per day, and the 5th package up to 12 per day.
( = you can only buy one $4.99 pack per day.)

Reference: Event Package 1-5 All Contents (total: $185)

IMPORTANT: As of March 2023, it is now possible to buy a fifth package directly. (It is not clear if this will continue)

To buy this, you cannot use the usual package button at the top right of the screen.

Press the resources bar at the top of the screen to bring up the screen to use the resource box, and you will see a banner at the top as a super promotion, from which you can buy it.

For the event package, in addition to the above, you can also get 20 Level 1 packs of limited-time promotion.
Therefore, If you choose the speed pack, you will get an additional speed boost of about 320 days.

B-2) Super Value Activity Package

Super Value Activity Package

If you want speed-up items in a hurry, you can buy the “Super Value Activity Package”.

This can be bought when you achieve 120 scores in your daily activities.

You can only buy one of these per day.

You can buy them from the Gems page in the store.

It includes

  • about 15 days of Speedups (21,500 min.)
  • 26,000 Gems
  • 2.5M Gold
  • about 7.5M Resources x 4 types
  • etc

Unlike the “Event Package”, this one doesn’t include any “Source of Life” or “Runestone”.

Package contents

  • 1,000 Gems
  • 1,000 VIP points
  • 5K Gems x5
  • 60 Minute Speed Up x150
  • Super Resources Chest x40 (Golden chest) * Gross average: 100K x 25 x 4 types
  • 100 Stamina x10
  • Material Bag (Silk Road) x8
  • 100K Gold x 25

  • 100K Stone box x50
  • 100K Ore Box x50
  • VIP 1 Day x1
  • 2K Monarch EXP x50
  • 2K General EXP x100

C) Buy only during the 3-day weekend.

For 3 weekends only (After the server reset time on Friday), if you buy a pack, you’ll get an extra “Weekend Purchase Package” based on the total amount of gems you buy.

(You can see the details on the Gems page in the store.)

Weekend Purchase Package
  • total 500 Gems -> Level 1
  • total 1,000 Gems -> Level 2
  • total 2,000 Gems -> Level 3
  • total 4,000 Gems -> Level 4
  • total 7,000 Gems -> Level 5
  • total 15,000 Gems -> Level 7
  • total 70,000 Gems -> Level 10

Only the gems in the base of the billed pack will be counted, not the gems that are in the package as a return.

For example, for a $4.99 pack with “event package”, only 1,000 gems are counted, not the 25,000 gems that are in the package as a return.

The $4.99 pack has a base of 1,000 gems, so if you buy one $4.99 pack over the weekend, you’ll get up to the “Weekend Purchase Package Level 2”.

Package contents

Level 1

  • 50K Gold x30
  • 5 Minute Speedup for Researching x60
  • 10 Minute Speedup for Researching x30

D) Buy a $4.99 pack only once a day.

As mentioned above, “Limited Time Promotion” is very important, and if you don’t get it, you’ll lose a lot.

However, you can get the first tier by buying one $4.99 pack, but to get the second tier, you’ll need to buy 24,000 gems that day to get it.

If you have a monthly budget of less than $100, this will be tough to buy.

Therefore, the best deal would be to buy the $4.99 pack once a day, and repeat the process over and over again.


  • Buy only when there’s a bonus you want in a “Limited Time Promotion”.
  • Buy only “Event Package” or “Super Value Activity Package”.
  • Buy only during the 3-day weekend.
  • Buy a $4.99 pack only once a day.

The items that were in my item inventory were not charged when I used them, right? There was no buy button…there was an exchange for wood, transparent diamonds, etc.

In my opinion, if you are short in gold, buy gems; that is, the Shopping Spree Event and King’s Scheme Pack are the prior choice to Super Value Activity Package. it’s because you can get at least 40k more gems from them, and you only need to spend about 5k gems to learn 5M from keep at level 25. If this is not enough, buy Super Value Activity Package then. Not to mention consuming gems give many speedups back. The only bad thing is that they may not be long-term packs


I want to hide my name which shows up in alliance gift, whenever I buy a pack

A few questions, sorry – how does the shopping spree package(s) fit in your hierarchy? “Bright gems”, “super speeds”, “super rune/refining stones” etc? And the new “on sale” 10$ packs? Can the double value coupon change which packs are the best value? Did the update to the daily activity pack change anything? I mean i think it got bigger but I’m not sure if other packs changed as well…

Sorry again, probably too many questions! I just always want to know…


I bought only one of the cheapest $4.99 packages over the weekend, but Apple billed me for 1000 packs and 2500 packs.
Did Evony change the way they charge? Or is it a scam or something?
I’m very confused. Please help me.


What do you think about the first day package, the most competitive package and the super building package unlock on levels 6, 11 and 16? Do you recommend buying any of them?

Hola necesitó saber si puedo comprar paquetes de mi cuenta principal del juego para enviar a otros jugadores como donación o compartir no se si me dejó entender espero sus respuesta

hello, in case it is my first purchase, if I buy the package of 25000% of 4.99, with this it is enough to obtain the purchase reward of 15000 basic gems

hello there, may I ask how is possible gain the double drop purchasing package in the game?

Thank you for all your help.
Regarding the 25000% Return Event Package, which is more economical, buying a package of 5 levels or buying a lot of packages of the first level?

Are memberships more expensive even if I choose the annual pass?

It’s relatively expensive. 🤔
Membership is $99.99 for an annual pass, which is roughly the same price as buying 20 $4.99 packs of the 25000% package.
Considering that you’ll get all of these 20 times and each time you’ll also get a limited time promotion, the 25000% pack is a better deal.
(Details have been added to the article.)

If you purchase the package until the 5th Tier. Is there anything you should take care of? Better buy them fast after each other or spread it out on the day?

If you buy up to 5 tiers of the 25,000% event package, you will receive a limited time promotional 2nd tier pack as a bonus.
(You can get it if you buy 24,000 gems in total)
Therefore, it is a good idea to proceed with buying the 25,000% package when the contents of the 2nd tier pack of the limited time promotion is what you want. 😃
Reference : Limited Time Promotion – All Package Contents

Hi, I haven’t tried it yet, but I was thinking there is a relatively cheap way of triggering the limited time package bonus. If you buy three $5 packages in one day, but space them 4hrs apart, you would trigger the lvl1 package 3 times, thus activating the bonus package. Does this indeed work like this, or do you really need to trigger all three tiers? The bonus package countdown is for 24hrs, while the individual tiers are for 4hrs, hence my idea.

Thank you for sharing your idea 😃.
After receiving the 1st tier limited time package and then 4 hours later, unfortunately, it is still the 2nd tier. 😭
So it seems that we have to clear all 3 tiers honestly.

When i updated keep to level 25 Package king growth show to me and I closed by mistake ,, 8 can’t get it again
Where I can find it


Thank you for clarifying on the cost. I was getting worried if it is going to be an expensive game, I would have to quit playing.
Your guide is very helpful thank you so much for the effort.


The detailed explanation is very helpful.
It is written that bounty caves are more expensive, but what kind of billing format is used?
I read the description in the game, but I had no idea… Maybe that amount of money is going to be charged every day? I can’t get to it.
Do you have any further information?

It’s not $19.99 every day, it’s $19.99 for 30 days. Every day you get 1,500 gems, 1 x 100 stamina and 1 x LV5 material, so in total you only get 45,000 gems, 30 x 100 stamina and 30 x LV5 material.
If you are willing to pay $19.99, it is better to buy the 22,500% pack ($4.99) once a day on the weekend and get the bonus Limited Time Package and Weekend Purchase Package 4 times in a month. You can get more than 80,000 gems, etc.


Thank you for the explanation.
I see, you mean that 22500 is an exceptional price.
That helps me a lot.
