Comprehensive Guide to Great Buildings and your Pl...

At the inception of this site we released an article on what GBs were right for you. This really wasn’t a comprehensive list of all the GBs in the game though, nor did it truly discuss which play style(s) they work best for. So this article is going to amend that. The original one is still good for the absolute basics of planning, but this one will be what really gets into the nitty-gritty. You’re welcome to read...

Earning Forge Point Packs

In the earlier days of FOE, when GE was brand new and negotiations didn’t even exist, it was a little easier to earn FP packs. This is because GE FP winnings were given in packs, and you tended to win them a bit more often. Then Inno changed that, and there was unrest that they were also taking packs away from GB rewards. Thankfully, the latter didn’t happen. As it stands today there are only a few ways to get FP...

The Joys of Questing

When you first hear the term “questing”, you might think that it refers to the Story Quest (and the never ending Princess Myciena), or the Daily Quest, or even the Side Quests. It’s actually none of these things though. Questing refers to the Recurring Quests, which you can do over and over for as many times as you’re able to complete them to win goodies. The prize for a Recurring Quest is always...

There are treasury GBs to do this, but sometimes you need that extra kick. This could be because your guild is active in an era, or perhaps there are too many mates in an era and not enough goods to unlock GE. Whatever the reason, a treasury cannot feed itself. It...

The Value of Blueprints

Great Buildings are a huge game-changer in any city, and your choice of GBs will ultimately need to compliment your play style. Getting the initial BPs is challenging enough, but that’s just the beginning. Eventually, you may want to take one or more GBs beyond level 10, and to do that you’re going to need an entire set of BPs again… for each consecutive level. So one set of BPs will get your GB to level...

Hunting for Blueprints

Hands down, no questions asked, Great Buildings will effectively change and skew your city to the play style you desire (especially for GvG, but GE too). The biggest struggle when it comes to this though, is acquiring all the blueprints you need in order to plant a GB in your city. There are a few ways to go about this, with some methods being more effective than others. Depending on how badly you need BPs will determine...
