Netmarble’s Iron Throne is here and players are ready to pull out the hammers and get to building. While there can be a cost associated with similar types of games at times, one of the best things about this game is that grinding can get you a long way.
Here, we will take a look at how to budget your Iron Throne spending and where you can grind and earn prizes. While you may not get there as quickly as you would if you spent, you can still grow and maintain without spending your life savings.
Keep reading our budget guide as we explore how to best spend your money and where to grind it out.
The Gold Store is accessible at the right side of your screen in the top corner. Upon entering the Gold Store, you will see multiple tabs with many options for packs. At times, knowing which packs to choose for yourself can be difficult.
However, there are some packs that you will definitely want to invest in and then fit other packs into your budget.
In the Store, you have your Recommended Packs, Limited Time Packs, Equipment Packs, Packages, and Gold. You can scroll through and look at different packs using the Next button located in the bottom right corner if there is more than one option to display.
The other feature you will see in your Gold Shop is a Mileage Bonus. Mileage Bonuses can be earned over time and give you different rewards based on your tier of spending.
Your tier is determined by how much Base Gold is in the packs that you are purchasing. In the pack above, you can see that the Base Gold is 22K while the Bonus Gold is 44K.
The Bonus Gold will not count towards your Mileage Bonus. Mileage Bonus is an excellent way to increase your rewards from your purchases.
Once you complete every tier, it starts over again at Tier 1, so you constantly earn rewards with your purchases.
Some packs are only available for purchase a limited number of times. This will be indicated at the bottom of the pack.
These packs have great deals and are well worth the cost. Some of our favorite picks for packs on a budget are the weekly packs offered under Limited Time, as these packs have a good amount of items at an affordable cost.
Free Iron Throne Packs
Iron Throne often offers free packs. There is a daily free pack you want to collect every day.
However, there are also occasional free packs when special packs are released or around the holidays in the shop.
Daily Reward Packs
We now have Daily Reward Packs. These packs have their ups and downs. However, they are a nice boost to your supplies if you remember to collect the rewards.
The most important thing to note about these packs is that you must log in daily to collect these rewards. They do not auto-collect so forgetting to collect them is like throwing a little money out the window.
The good news is these packs are priced well, making them worth taking a closer look at.
30-Day Daily Reward Pack
The first pack we will look at is the 30-Day Daily Reward Pack. This pack costs 10 Dollars a month, and you can collect the rewards from it daily.
You will receive Gold, Speedups, AP, Auto Monster Hunt, and Resources daily. Over time, this pack has evolved and done well with keeping up with the game’s current state.
Make sure to check what currently gets offered in it before purchasing to make sure it’s worth your money.
Are you new to Iron Throne? It’s important to know where to start with your spending when you’re new.
One important thing to note is that your building levels will be significant. Your building levels dictate what research you can complete, what troops you can train, whether or not you have Titans open, and building enhancement levels.
One thing that is important to note is that you can grind to complete some of the older research and building levels with the addition of the Super Pass. We’ll discuss the Super Pass more in our grind section.
There are a few basic things you want to look for as a beginner when purchasing packs.
Things to look for
- Construction Gear (There are various sets available. While some are better than others, anything is better than nothing and will help you to advance.)
- Speed Up Items
- Super Pass tickets
- Special Building items, such as Kindling, War Trumpets, Marble, and Shackles
As you advance in the game and spending, you will want to tailor your purchases to your play style. In addition, as your construction advances, you will want to look more at Research and Training. There are several gear sets available for both functions.
With Construction gear, you will want to pick the equipment that best fits your budget. Over time, you will be able to work to better your gear if needed.
For suggestions on Gear, be sure to check The Forge. In addition to Research and Training Gear, there are several things you will want to look at as you advance more.
One of the most important things to consider as you advance in your gameplay is gear, gold, and Titans. All of these game components play a considerable role in your success.
Currently (December 2021), Radiant gear and Level 60 gear are some of the essential gears you can invest in. While you can choose to purchase other needed equipment, it’s almost more budget-friendly to grind for that gear.
Titans are also very important to gameplay. You need to keep an eye on packs that contain Titan fragments and gold. Leveling Titans can quickly become a drain on gold.
Things to Look for
- Radiant Gear
- Level 60 Gear
- Titan Fragments
- VIP Points
- Hero XP
- Battle Gear
- Speed Up Items
Loaders, RSS Sellers, and More
Out there in the world of Iron Throne, you will find people who offer you discounts. This sounds great, but there are several problems with this system, and we want to caution you on why we choose not to use Loaders, RSS sellers, or buy or sell game accounts. We are giving the top two reasons here, but I am sure there are plenty more!
Reason One: It’s all about internet safety folks
There is no easy way to share Iron Throne logs. The way that we bind our accounts makes it difficult to impossible to change your logs after you have shared them. Share that info with the wrong person, and you risk investing a ton of money into an account that can be easily stolen or wiped clean because you trusted the wrong person.
We have seen it happen multiple times where someone has been given an account, bought an account, or just shared logs, and later someone decided they wanted the account back or worse.
Players have become angry and destroyed entire alliances by kicking everyone. Sharing logs in the world of Iron Throne is never a good idea. Give them access once they have access forever.
Reason Two: TOP REASON HERE!! IT IS AGAINST THE TERMS OF SERVICE
Ok, lovelies, we have multiple things going on when we talk about Terms of Service (TOS). First up, it’s against TOS to share logs. We talked about other reasons this is a bad idea, but let’s toss on top of it that if you do, it’s all on you, and Netmarble has straight up said that they are not responsible for what may happen if you do. This means you’re on your own.
3.3. Responsibility of Account User: YOU ARE SOLELY AND FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING YOUR LOGIN DETAILS CONFIDENTIAL AND ALL USES OF YOUR ACCOUNT, INCLUDING ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CONDUCTED THROUGH THE USE OF YOUR LOGIN DETAILS, WHETHER NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU. You may not use anyone else’s account or permit others to use your account at any time. You acknowledge and agree to accept full responsibility for all fees and purchases made through your account (including any unauthorized purchases) and agree to fully compensate us for any loss or harm that may result. Netmarble will not be responsible to you for any losses resulting from an unauthorized access or use of your account, whether fraudulently or otherwise.
Next up, if you are buying from unauthorized sellers and Netmarble catches wind of this, well, they can and will terminate or ban your account. Bad idea, guys. You just went from getting a discount to losing all the money you invested in the game.
4.5. We prohibit and do not recognize any purported transfers of Virtual Money or Virtual Goods effectuated outside of our Services, or the purported sale, gift, or trade-in the “real world” of anything that appears or originates in our Services, unless expressly authorized by us. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void, and may subject your account to termination.
These are only two reasons but I caution all of you to ensure you consider the impact that buying, selling, using loaders, and using RSS sellers can have not only on your wallet but on your game because, in the end, you could end up losing more than you gained.
Not all loaders are quality people. Refund loaders have made it so many games need to crack down on players utilizing loaders.
Grind to Save
One of the fantastic things about Netmarble’s Iron Throne is the ability to grind for the resources and items you need. The game offers many features that will allow you to be competitive and spend less.
If you are not the type to grind, spending more is always an available option; however, here, we will cover ways to save by using the resources that Netmarble has given.
Monsters and Chaotic Strongholds
Monsters and Chaotic Strongholds have excellent drops for first kills. Upon killing the level for the first time, you receive resources, AP energy, Ancient Coins, Troops, Speed Ups, and more. In addition, after killing them for the first time, they will continue to drop different items to help you in your journey.
Monsters and Chaotic Strongholds are significant to players who are new to the game. These are easy beginner rewards that can help give you the boost you need as you get started.
Defiled Strongholds are good for you and your alliance. They give resources and Alliance Research materials as rewards.
This is going to help you progress individually as a player; however, it will also help your Alliance progress which in turn helps you more.
The Dragon and Lake
Your Dragon sits on top of your Altar and has several functions to help you in your grind to save. Every three hours, your Dragon will drop Gold. Just click on your Dragon to send him for a flight around your Castle, and on his way, he will drop Gold that is automatically applied to your Gold amount.
Another feature the Dragon has is AR Mode, which not only helps you save — it’s fun! AR Mode switches on your camera and allows you to find your Dragon and feed it.
When you do this, you get items to extend your VIP. This saves money by giving different boosts to help you in your growth journey and save Speed Ups.
This is a great function to utilize until you get to the point where you have a permanent VIP.
Have you noticed the little gold circles moving around your lake? Go fish! Click on those, and you will get resources from your lake.
It’s also important to note that lately, there have been events run where you get extra rewards from your Dragon or Fishing. These extra rewards are always a limited amount of time, so be sure to get them while they’re available.
Events are a great place to grind and get valuable rewards. There are a few events that you really want to look out for.
Blood Moon and Dark Moon have a lot of rewards that can help you extend your gameplay. Do as much as possible to get the rewards here, and make sure you remember to spend the coins you earn in the Dark Moon and Blood Moon stores.
The Inn, The Merchant, and The Temple
These three buildings provide opportunities to get additional items as well. The Temple will allow you so many wishes a day, which will grant you AP, Resources, or Speed Ups depending on what you wish for.
The Merchant sells various items for Gold and Resources. There are amazing deals at the Merchant, so be sure you check in.
The Inn provides cards that give different items. You receive those items by flipping the different cards using Ancient Coins, which are acquired by defeating Chaotic Strongholds (see above!). One of the great things about the Inn is that your rewards depend on your citadel level.
This means that you will see the rewards increasing as you level up.
Join an Alliance
Join an Alliance. Being part of an Alliance is invaluable help for not only your knowledge but your growth, too. In an Alliance, you will receive Alliance Gifts to help you along your way, and Alliance Helps applied to Construction, Research, and Healing to help you save on Speed Ups. Be sure to utilize all of the benefits that your Alliance gives you.
Complete Quests and Events
Quests and Events give great rewards. If you are planning on building, wait for a building event to be sure to receive the rewards available for you there.
Not only will you get resources from quests and events, but you can also earn Upgrade Hammers, Chests, VIP items, Hero XP, Lord, XP, Gold, and so much more.
In Golden Moon, if you can hold a sanctuary, this is a great place to be able to earn rewards without even paying attention. Any troops you lose here are restored when you exit Golden Moon.
Super Pass is a feature that was added into Iron Throne almost a year ago now. You can earn and purchase Super Pass Tickets to spend in the store.
Many of the items are limited in that you can only purchase so many over a set period of time. However, when that time period resets, you can then purchase more.
You can choose to purchase items to automatically level you up in the beginning stages of the game. However, you can also purchase resources, Titan Frags, Pets, and more.
If you would rather build yourself, the number of resources you can get from the Super Pass Shop is substantial. Especially at earlier levels. This is a great place to either catch up or purchase items to help you continue in your progress.
You can get Super Pass tickets through Daily Quests (200 per day) and packs purchased in the Gold Store.
We have a ton of information to help you be successful in Iron Throne. Are you looking for ways to continue building on a budget?
