For some reason, in my case, Throne Wars managed to rise above the crowd of empire building games and got me hooked on it instantly, despite a very slow progression bar and a ton of waiting for resources to be ready and constructions to be finished. But it fits perfectly for quick play during 5 minute breaks, and that is exactly what I am doing with it.
I am also starting to consider myself a pretty solid player in the world of Throne Wars and I am here to share with you a set of tips and tricks for the iOS game to make sure that you are on the right track!
1. Follow the quests (to a point)
Usually, in this type of games, following and completing the quests is the easy way to progress naturally and Throne Wars makes no exception. Pretty early on, though, the game will focus on asking you to research a lot of things, which you should reconsider because…
2. Build up resources first!
You need resources! If you follow the quest line, progress will be insanely slow. Instead, upgrade your resource producing buildings and storage as fast as possible (go all the way to level 5 for starters) in order to have what to work with. Only then resume focus on the Quests and the research requirements.
3. Build, research, train
Although you can’t build or upgrade two buildings at the same time, you can easily do some research, building and troop training at the same time. So make sure that you are always busy with something, especially research which takes a lot to complete.
4. Buy resources from the shop
The silver coins that you get can be used to purchase resource stacks. Make sure you purchase these only when really required, otherwise you won’t have money for your heroes!
5. Only choose the best heroes!
Each hero has their own set of special abilities and you can check them out by tapping the magnifying glass icon near their name. It’s a good idea to invest in a hero that gives boosts to production and storage and maybe defense to have as a mayor, while your troops should get a general to improve their stats. Also, don’t hesitate to spend the silver on leveling up your heroes, because their bonuses will also increase!
6. Research Administration ASAP
Available in the castle, this should be researched as soon as possible as it gives you the option to have one more settlement in your kingdom and therefore improve your resource gain. Extremely valuable as early on as possible!
7. Always spy enemies before attacking!
Unless you really know what you are up against (inactive players), make sure that you always spy on an enemy before attacking them. Even if you have previously attacked and succeeded, it doesn’t mean you will again. Sending the right hero also improves your chances of successful spying.
8. Build up your army and wait for more features
The option to join alliances will be coming soon in Throne Wars, so make sure that you build up your troops, have the market ready and be prepared for when the alliances arrive. That’s when the real fun will begin and it’s best to be prepared!
9. Change your player’s name
A final tip: Tap on your name (player3243423 or whatever numbers there are there) and change it to something original and nice. If you don’t change your name, you will get a lot more attacks in as people will consider that you are inactive and they will want to farm on you. The opposite works and it’s a good idea to focus on attacking players who have not changed their names as this proves that they are not that active or prepared.
