Cost to upgrade to lvl2 no lumber mill, 420k. Sell it you get half. I would not sell a lvl2 Manor. A lvl1 maybe. Its your strategy so good luck.

No matter the discount you get with Lumber Mill; it's always 1/2 the value of it's most recent upgrade.

In this case, 420,000 upgrade = 210,000 resale.

You get half the purchase price and half the cost of each completes upgrade. So if not cost 360k to build and 420k to up to level 2 then you would get half of 360k + half of 420k = 390k (180k+210k)

You can test this with the cheapest defense building

Don't mislead them into selling their buildings when you are giving them the wrong information.

It's only 210k if you sell a Level 2 Manor regardless of lumber mill discount and previous upgrade.

If I am wrong please forgive me as I have not sold any buildings yet in KA

Yeah I recently made the mistake of selling a manor. I'm also going for BD Lvl 8 upgrade, my Lumber Mill is Lvl 8 so the upgrade is 634,000 if I remember correctly. I didn't realize you only get half the value back for selling buildings, so basically lost 105,000 gold for nothing (230,000 original manor cost with Lvl 8 Lumber Mill, sold it for 125,000).

Expensive lesson, but one well learned.

I sell my brothels and cannon towers all the time if I'm a few gold short for an upgrade. But i'm camping so no PvE income and don't sell upgraded buildings because you're throwing away that upgrade time.

I saw a rival sell 2 level 2 manors to do the level 9 breding den upgrade, a desperate move that will set them back weeks.

Please elaborate on weeks?

One does not simply rebuild and upgrade their manors to level 2. But whatever strategy you want to take is up to you. If you think it's worth it to sell your kingdom for the level 10 BD upgrade then prepare to sleep in the bed you made.

I am still working on my approach to this and haven't decided what to do as of yet. I have worked up a pretty good "vault" of bosses that will net me around 100k and if I time all my buildings right. I can clear 150k or so. If I have my vault at just 330 that puts me at 580k and still around 100k short. It really wouldn't take me that long to get the manor built and at level 2 again when you weigh the benefit of a level 8 breeding den. Still trying to sift through all my options

That's a little different then two level 2 manors and BD 8 is different then BD 9. But there are other ways to get 100k. I've sold my level 1 BD, water temple, Beast kenel, lenders, brothels and 5 cannon towers to do an upgrade before as long as they're level 1 I think it's worth it.

Euchred I am I free player that I am afraid waiting to long to be able to get my den to level ten. I am to high of a level for the whales not to go on a feeding frenzy on me should I try that so no I won't sale my kingdom for that. However selling just one manor may well be worth it long term to accomplish this, just so long as you have the money to upgrade instantly after the sale. Rebuilding the manor and getting it to level two will take time for sure, but what else do we have in this game but time, it's not like there is an endgame.

I'm talking about getting to level 8 and staying there. Level 9 is pointless unless you think you can make a run to ten which I don't think I can

It's up to you, it's definitely a strategy that enough people have used. You're right about the time aspect.

You can always earn gold, but you cannot earn time.👍

Unless you raid/attack other players for their gold.🍻

Yea, that still has to be timed well and can sometimes be very difficult finding buildings worth raiding for this particular purpose

Joie, what is your level and ally counts now?

tcapi

Have you considered preparing the monsters in some of the maps to 1-hit and collect them just before your upgrade? These are the few that I have used and they gave me about 250k in total.

Shipwreck Cove
Dwarven Mine
Mount Inferno
Lost Bethel
Temple of water
Darkhome
Shadowriven Hall
Garden of gain
Dagon Delta
Nomadic Encampment
Dreadful ticket
Mountian of blessing
Dragon Roost

Level 112 with 219 allies a/d are both right at 40k

Joie
10-21-2012, 09:46 PM
I've got right now about 100 k maybe a little more in bosses from those maps lined up, working on getting a few more of them before I make my push

I am at level 132 and I can see level 115 and up, with ally as low as 280. Lots of rivals are at A 50k-60k range and they can see you at level 112. Provided you invest in your basilisk or H Priest to get defence up big time, you are going to face lots of aggressors along the way.

1-hit monster can get you 250k. Not only limiting to the boss and the second bosses, you could look at other critters too. Like check out Mutated Horror in the Mine and it gives you 5k, you could try kill the rest to get 6 or 7 of them which is sweet.

690k to Level8, 1.15m to Level 9, and 1.9m to level10.
You should be able to get to level 8 with properly timed collections and vault and 1-hit monsters.
level9 will be a stretch but still doable.
Suggest you invest in Hydra at BD8 before going for the BD10 run. Then the million dollar question is how much you have to invest in defence or you would rather sell some of the buildings away to cut short the risk exposure.

I just finished my BD8 upgrade at level 84 with full allies 33k/53k, made it without selling any major buildings (sold minor lvl 1ones because i was impatient for the last 35k) got hit for 55k from a royal night was lucky to be on the game to limit the damage as i dumped the money into finishing out my all HP's defense and restarted and got there 20 hrs later. Tons tried to atttack only one succeeded. I will certainly have to fill out a hydra army while I raise my IPH from the 6300 it is now to get to BD10. What i find of note is two individuals with 40k/40 stats who were on BD7 with low cash in the vault tried to take my unvaulted cash. They failed and now i'm going to make sure I use those two people to help fill out my hydra army faster as punishment

Love it. I, too, am filling the ranks of my army with Hydras. What is your Beast Kennel lvl?

Also, in the meantime for myself I'm taking lvl 3 Dwarven Mine to lvl 5. May attempt to raise at least one more map with high value target to help fund the lvl 2 Manor's in addition to the over vault.

Unfortunately I feel that if my end is BD10 with less stress than those guys that are doing it in 100+ whale group I need to stay away from PvE except for box events to limit my leveling. I feel my IPH is way too low and requires constant raiding for income. My Kennel is only lvl 2. My plan is to get my IPH to 8K+ Manors to lvl 3, lenders to 5 then I'm going to do Kennel upgrade and Water temple upgrades. For Level 10 BD run I will start preppaing maps to have high value targets 1 hit. I'm also hoping those two people who failed make a run at BD8 when I'm ready to go to 9, so I can snatch up some over the vault cash. Good luck to you John

I'm already steering clear of the Box events up until I until my upgrades. Honestly, unless you (specifically) are a Gem player, you may get 3-4 of the Indestructibles. My personal best was 21 opens netting me my Abyssal Lord.

With that being said, if you are going to make a run for BD10, then a 70/43 Dragon is going to knock out your lower Indestructibles as playable combat units. I'm currently only bringing my +40 attack Indestructibles (my Hydras & Basilisks are filling the remainder of the ranks). Strategically, I will not be buying any more units other than Hydras and my Vault can fund my 1.larger upgrades (Manor, Lender, Playhouse) 2.units and 3. timely pickups (Merchant Caravans).

Which maps (aside from the first 8 cheap skate maps) do you have lvl 5? Most of my maps range from lvl 2-3 and a few are lvl 4-5. I banked 70k in one hit monsters for my BD8; my energy was a mere 1140.

I just started my BD Lvl 8 upgrade. Had to sell my two lvl 1 Manors and go over vault by about 60,000 (have my lumber mill to Lvl 8). I'm also pretty high level, 103, so thinking I may have to bite the bullet and purchase some gold for the 9 and 10 upgrades. We'll see, gonna try the multiple 1-hit left monster approach on the last few maps, rebuy and resell my manors, and get my IPH up some more first before I shell out real cash. It just depends on how often I get raided/attacked and how frustrated I get, hehe.

Joie
10-22-2012, 03:57 PM
I'm already at max with baskilisks and hp so 40k is as good as its gonna with the exception of some minimal armor adjustments I may pick up while getting my maps to maximum output for my run. I'll always remain a free player so purchasing gold or gems will never happen for me. This is my opinion only so don't attack me for it, but I find spending real life money on these games dilutes the challenge of playing them. I've got nothing against money spenders it's just not my preferred method of playing

I'll say turtle a bit and save for BD ugrade rather then selling your Level 2 Manor.

Was able to get bd8 upgrade by only having to sale 2 level one printing presses. My playhouses were about an hour off and got raided or I could have made it without selling anything.
