  • Observation/Confirmation re: Hi Lvl Knight, barracks, etc.

    Please confirm my observation:

    1. It pays to move the highest lvl knight around just before doing that particular act. If I move my high-lvl knight to research, I will get the better research time when I select a research item. When I move them away from research (say to resources), the research time on the item I researched does not decrease. Same can be said for training and building. So, it appears that I only need 2 high-lvl knights. One to sit in resources and one to sit as marshall. I can then move either one to research or building just before I research or build, then move them back to either marshall or resources. Correct?

    2. If I cancel a training, I only get back 50% of the resources spent. Correct?

    3. If I destroy a bldg, I do not get any resources back. Correct?

    4. I have a lvl 9 barrack, and ten other lvl 1 barracks. Will it make a difference to upgrade all of the lvl 1 barracks?

    The answers to upgrading barracks and knights

    These are great questions. Here's the deal...

    You are correct. You only need one high level knight. You can keep it at resources. Move it to marshall before you need to train/defend. Move it to foreman before you need to build. Move to alchemist before you need to research. Once you train/build/research, you have the least amount of time and you can then move the knight back to resources. When you move your high level knight away from train/build/research, you do NOT lose the beneficial time you obtained (it's locked in). Same as moving the high level knight to marshall after you've already q'd up for training. The time is locked in.

    Yes, it pays to upgrade all of your barracks. But, it doesn't matter the level. If you upgrade the level 1 to level 2, you save approximately .9% of the training time. If you upgrade the level 3 to level 4, you save approximately .9% of the training time. Since it only takes approximately 5 minutes to go from level 1 to level 2, upgrade all to level 2, then all to level 3, then all to level 4, etc. For every 11 upgrades, you will see a 10% decrease in training times. An alternate way of thinking is that you can train 10% more troops in the same amount of time. If you take 10 barracks from lvl 1 to lvl 5, you will see a 50% decrease in training times. Get it?

    As to training time for Knights as marshalls, each level of knight gives you .18% decrease in time. Thus, a level 100 knight as the marshall will give you an 18% decrease in time.
