Hi all,

Trying to get my head wrapped around the validation of waiting through agonizingly slow upgrades to boost buildings.

Are any of them actually worth it, and which ones?

I have seen partial discussions about cost/benefits (hinting that they are not worth the upgrade time) but want to be sure, and also hope to see a dedicated thread really talk this to death :)

Lumbar mill to 10 might be debatable, but I'll take all the others to 10 eventually. Currently got level 10 beast and level 9 magic.

Lumber Mill is arguably the most useful boost building in KA. Most effective if you upgrade it much sooner than later so you can regain all the money you spent just upgrading your LM. After that I would say that the Beast Kennel is next if you are going for army strength and trying to improve your dragon army. After that Temple of Healing will come into play if you are doing a lot of PVP so you have your 30% fewer casualties with your dragon army.

Beast kennel if you run a dragon army, temple of healing, and the lumber mill are the important ones for me.

Lumber mill only took a week. Best investment for long term play. I was doing boost buildings but they don't help with the bosses do I'm still doing iph until I have a full dragon/ high priest army, then going back to boost buildings. If you don't have your breeding den at 10 I would work on boosts so you have more strength to defend your bd cash.

I did Lumber Mill to 10.
And I plan to bring Beast Kennel and Water Temple of Healing to 10 as well.
I'll pass on the other boost buildings (for infantry, magic, and machine) since my end-game army will primarily consist of dragons.

I'm at Water Temple 5, Lumber Mill 5 and Beast Kennel 6. I'll upgrade further now that I got both Manors 2.

I would upgrade Infantry to lvl 10. It's relatively fast and very cheap, and almost every Boss/Event unit is falling into the Infantry category for awhile now. It won't help a ton, but its nice to know you're fully maximizing your army strength.

This I didn't consider, thanks GIO.

About Lumber Mill, I think it's important to not rush into LM upgrades too early as it won't give you a discount on your unit / equipment purchases. It's still important to have a relatively good IPH before turning focus to the LM.
But yes, LM Lv10 is extremely worth while.

Thanks marebear! That was the reading I was looking for. The search on the forums is no good, I searched for "boost buildings" and got a bunch of stuff for CrimeCity and other games I'm not playing...

Thanks to everyone else for chipping in their $0.02, greatly appreciated. :)
