Its been a busy past couple weeks for Evony! To start with they just made one of the biggest changes I have seen in recent history. When attacking NPC cities there is now the possibility of gear upgrade materials to drop as rewards. Here is the official post on the evony forum:

Evony bbs – “Players will now sometimes see Iron Ore, Wood, Crude Gemstones, Thoroughbreds, and Fabric as rewards for defeating barbarian cities.

materials1 Evony Age 2 Item Drop Rate Change + Evony Crash!

To me this is huge! Until now if you want to upgrade your hero gear past the first few levels you had to sped money.  Now that these items can be obtained its possible to do all of your upgrades without spending a dime. This may take some time but for those of you who don’t want to spend money on the game there is now a way.

I have been doing some testing and it appears that these drop rates are still extremely low. Also there is some concern that these rewards may fall in place of medals thus decreasing the number of medals that drop. I have not been able to confirm this one way or the other.

Please comment below and let me know what your experience has been with this new change.

The next big thing that many of you may have noticed is that Evony was down yesterday! I got several emails asking for my help, lol. Sorry I am not Evony.

Evony posted on facebook last night saying that the issue has been resolved. I don’t know what happened but I do know that it had a lot of people concerned.

So here’s keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly from here on out.

One other fun bit of info. It looks like Atlantis has finally been conquered in the full release of Age 2. Congrats to Hughesy, looks like there may be some trouble to come for him soon though.

Here’s the post: http://bbs.evony.com/showthread.php?t=148402

You need a level 10 Town Hall to advance your military rank to General. You need to be ranked General to advance your title to Earl, Marquis, etc. Since you cannot advance without a level 10 Town Hall your first Michelangelo script should be used for TH 10.  Otherwise TH 10 is probably not as important as Walls 10. After the first TH 10 use your Michelangelo Scripts to create level 10 walls.

Sometimes when you send out scouts in Evony you get back vague scouting reports.  This is because your informatics level isn’t high enough to see the actual numbers of troops in the region.  Here is a guide to what these results mean.

Few: 1 – 24
Pack: 25 – 49
Lots: 50 – 99
Horde: 100 – 249
Throng: 250 – 499
Swarm: 500 – 999
Zounds: 1,000 – 2499
Legion: 2500 – 4999
Bulk: 5000 – 10000

Generally speaking Horseback Riding (HBR) has some bugs and it’s best to keep your HBR below your archery skill level so your ballistas don’t commit suicide.  There is a bug where your ballistas might keep moving forward in battle instead of stopping to shoot.  If your archery is 8 for example you want your HBR to be 7 or below. You do not want your HBR to be as high as your archery. I’ve lost 800 ballistas when attacking NPCs that I should have easily beaten and I’ve seen my friend lose 1200 because of this bug.

Every city can benefit from the skills you have learned in the academy. The only catch is you have to have an academy in every city and your academy in your new city has to be a high enough level.  You can see this by opening your academy training window.  Each skill will have a score next to it like “Lv. 6/Ct. 6”or whatever.  If you see a “Lv. 9/ Ct. 0” it means your skill is at a level 9 but this city doesn’t meet the qualifications yet. It could mean your Academy is too low a level, you don’t have a stable, or forge, or whatever. Look at the cost to learn that skill to find what area you are lacking in. The item you are lacking in will be shown in red text.

As soon as you build the proper structures your city will benefit from the skills you learned in your other academy! For this reason when you build a new city you can quickly speed up production and resources simply by building an academy there. Academy level 1 will speed up food and lumber creation. Level 2 will speed up mining and quarrying.

The Academy is very important.  Your academy research can speed the production time of buildings, troops, or the gathering of resources. In the later stages your academy can provide bonuses to your troops in battle or longer range for your archers. An academy is one of the first buildings I create in a new city.

When doing research in the academy the hero you have as mayor can help speed up the time it takes to research.  If you have a mayor with high intelligence when you start the research project the amount of time it takes to perform the research will be speed up.  As soon as you begin the research you can go back to your regular mayor with high politics.

Archery is the most importantskill for fighting as your archery gives your troops greater range. If you have greater range than your enemy you will get a free shot in battle. They continue to march towards you until they get in range and can shoot. This gives your archers a chance to get in one or more free shots on your opponent!  It can swing a fight in your favor as your first shot advantage might allow you to kill enough of the enemy that your smaller army will win the battle.

Your mayor affects research or building only at the time you initiate it. So when you click the button to research “archery level 9” you want to have your high intelligence hero as mayor.  As soon as you start the research change back to your high politics mayor so that you collect resources faster and shorten build times for structures. If you change your mayor while the research is happening you won’t get any bonus!

When building structures you want to have your high Politics hero as mayor WHEN you click on the button to upgrade the building.  As soon as you have clicked that button you can switch to a different hero.

Make sense? If not leave a comment and let me know!

Hiring a hero to be your mayor has an effect on your town. It can speed up the time it takes to build structures or train troops.  The statistics of your mayor determine how much it speeds up:

Mayors with high Politics (POL) affect the building times of structures, the collecting of resources, and the building times of defenses on your walls.

Mayors with high Intelligence (INT) affect the speed of researching items in the academy.

Mayors with high Attack  (ATT) affect the rate at which new troops are trained in the barracks.  Strangely enough they don’t affect the speed of building defenses like archer towers.
