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

A new element in Evony Age 2 is Historical Cities. These are NPC cities higher than level 10.

Learn the one simple trick that will save you thousands of troops in each attack!

The Historical Cities are spread out across the map as such:

  • Level 12 City (red flag), every 17 miles north/west/south/east.
  • Level 16 City (blue flag), which is the state capital. Only 1 per state.
  • Level 18 City (yellow flag), only 1 per server – “Atlantis” at map coordinates 0,0.

Atlantis Evony Age 2 - Level 18 City

These cities allow you to send out more troops than normal from rally points. They also allow you to affect the nearby cities in your zone. You can do things like tax other cities, draft 10% of their troops, etc. I believe the idea will be that alliances will fight to conquer these cities and eventually huge wars over the control of these cities will ensue. I don’t know all the effects yet but will write more as I find out.

There have been several threads on the beta forums about the historical cities as some alliances have been gathering a lot of research.

Lord Skywlk from the alliance BAMF wrote a great thread on how to conquer a level 12 historical city.

DaFallen has a thread on Atlantis. Atlantis is the only Level 18 city in the game. YES they were the first alliance to take out a level 18 city! Congratz to DeFallen! You guys kick ass.
