Building a New Account: Efficiency and Best Practices
Making the most out of your beginning on Iron Throne
There are new players joining Iron Throne on a daily basis. Additionally, some older players may want to reinvent themselves in one of the new Kingdoms, or just have a second account. However, starting a new account from scratch can be daunting. Today we will look at some ways to help grow your new baby both quickly and efficiently.
You want to build the early levels relatively quickly. Shooting for Castle 20 is a good goal. You can then utilize Dimensional Battle, Town Mode, Battle Royale, Deathmatch, and the HIGHLY important…Golden Moon. How are these helpful? Let’s take a look.
This can be accessed at C5. Beating these nodes gives lots of goodies, including building materials and Hero XP.
Town Mode opens at C8. There are many beneficial items to pick up in this area. A full list can be found in our Town Mode article linked above. Additionally, this is where you set your boosts for the day. Focus on the day’s events. If it’s Monster day, set them to Hero Attack.
You want to be sure you are taking advantage of Town Mode daily, especially in the early days of building your new account.
Once you hit Castle 20, you need to be camping in the Golden Moon around the clock. Hit a Sanctuary and go about your day. You don’t have to stay on the Golden Moon screen, you can go back to your Castle and do other things. However, by occupying a Sanctuary there, you are given rewards which include items for building as well as Gear chests. This is an easy way to accumulate materials.
When you first start your account you won’t have research gears. You have two options here; buy them or grind them out. If you are grinding, it’s advantageous to stick with the lower level research until you have a solid set of Sagacious Gear, otherwise, you’ll be using a lot of speedups. Start with City research to help your Economic buffs. You also will want a steady start on Crafting so that you can enhance your Gear, as we will discuss next.
Gear is exceedingly important for your new account, and not even only for battle. In the account I just started in K51, I purchased one Slaughter/Majestic pack for $19.99. Why? From that pack, I was able to craft a decent set of slightly enhanced gear with which to hit Monsters and Chaotic Strongholds. It is important to be able to take down Level 21 Monsters plus to grind your gear sets. So I bought gear to grind gear. Sound counterintuitive? It worked! Especially with the amazing Monster Anniversary events going on currently. Otherwise, it takes a very long time to grind a decent set through Infernos and events.
Last but not least, unless you’re a big spender you’re going to have to grind. But this can be fun and rewarding!
- Focus your work on the daily buffs and the hourly infernos.
- Always be sitting in the Golden Moon.
- Play every Battle Royale and Team Deathmatch you can.
- Kill Monsters and Chaotic Strongholds.
- Complete all the Growth Strategy Events in the Event Center (and any other event).
- Use Gold earned to increase VIP Level.
- Buy Daily Quest refreshes in the Alliance Shop and use them earn Lord XP to increase your Lord level (and always remember to have a 25% Lord XP boost running).
- Use your three daily Tower chances, even if you have to do a level you’ve already beaten.
Make the game work for you!
