On a quest to dominate in Iron Throne resources is King. Many of us know the struggle of being on a roll with research and construction only to run out. Resources are important in Iron Throne as we all know and so for that reason, I want to bring tips and tricks to farm the game to your heart’s content.
For today’s article, we will have several sections including where to find various resources and how to best obtain them. To kick it off let’s spend some time talking about a short warning I have for you.
This Warning has Been Brought to you By Cin and the Iron Throne Elite
It can be very tempting to use something we do not talk about. I will talk about it today for clarity only, RSS sellers. RSS sellers are out there and active, however, using these sellers is in fact against Terms of Service and puts you and your account at risk. Now that we have addressed this Taboo topic, let’s move on.
Five Elite Tips on where to find Resources
Before you can begin to farm and obtain resources you must know where to find your resources. The good news is that there are so many places you can get resources in Iron Throne that we will probably miss some as we make our list.
Elite Tip One: Chaotic and Defiled Strongholds
Chaotic and Defiled Strongholds are a great place to find resources in-game. One thing you will want to be certain to do is to look at the number of resources given versus the AP cost. Is your AP more wisely used by killing Chaotics or Chaotics? Let’s take a quick look at this.
|Target||AP Cost||Number||RSS Amount||RSS Type||Total Received|
|Ancient Defiled Stronghold||120||54||2,000,000||Food||108,000,000|
We compared a level 38 Ancient Defiled Stronghold to a level 38 Chaotic. If you are looking at just stone it is debatable whether the Ancient Defiled is the better choice due to the AP cost. However, if you are looking at resources overall you will be able to get more resources for less AP filling Defiled Rallies then hitting Chaotics if you are able to kill the Defileds off in one hit. While Chaotics are still a good choice for events and if you are looking for only a specific resource it is better to hit Defileds and get overall more RSS.
Elite Tip Two: Rewards are awesome
Make sure that you are Playing events, hitting monsters, sitting on Golden Moon, and more. Often you will see everything from sulfur to silver as rewards in the events we participate in on a daily basis. Pay attention to these events. While you may not get back as much RSS as you spend you will get some return on your investment. Some quick places to get RSS:
- Hourly Event Rewards
- Blood Moon, Domination, and other events
- Alliance Gifts
- Lucky Gifts
- Random Cards
- War Coin Shop
- Login Rewards
- And so many more places
Elite Tip Three: Use Gold (keep reading about why I hate this tip)
This is a possibility but we are going to pretend it is not. We can use gold to buy resources but there are so many better things we can be spending our gold on when we have resources available to us in so many places. However, if you do insist on using gold at least make sure you are buying at a reduced price in the VIP Shop.
Elite Tip Four: Gathering
Gathering may feel like a slower way to gain resources but it is a good way. Not only will gathering help you hit events but there are ways to do it faster and it is free. You can be increasing the number of resources available to you while you sleep without using AP or running an Auto Hunt. We are going to talk more about gathering in the section below just because it is very relevant.
Elite Tip Five: Farm Accounts or Trade with Alliance Members
There is of course always the possibility of trading RSS with alliance members, just remember that because of the Taboo subject we talked about at the beginning of this article the amount you can send in a given day is limited.
Are there dead accounts in your kingdom with more RSS than their warehouse can protect? Or did your alliance just zero an account who opened way too many unsecured resources? Well, my friend now is your time to keep on burning them and farm their resources. However, be aware that you will have to find them when they auto port.
Disclaimer: Do not open more resources than you can protect… I am not liable if you get farmed because you did!
Six Elite Tips For Gathering
Gathering sounds awful to me. I hate sitting on tiles and waiting for my troops to return home. However, ultimately gathering is important not only to help with increasing the number of resources in your city but also in events. When done correctly gathering can get you some great points in events such as Alliance War, Blood Moon, and hourly events. Also thanks to Vegrinos for his help to make sure we made the best gathering tips available to you.
Elite Tip One: Size Matters and so do Tiers
Yes, I just said what I said. This is one instance where size matters. The bigger your march the more RSS your troops can carry home from the tile. When you are gathering you want to be sure to send a hero and siege troops and send the highest tier you have. The higher the tier of troop you send the bigger their capacity.
Elite Tip Two: Gear Matters too
Make sure you have gear for each of your heroes for gathering. You can use collectors gear or Helga. Helga gear is available to be obtained in Town Mode. By resetting Town mode every 30 days you can finish it again and get another set of Helga gear.
Elite Tip Three: Research and Enhancement
Production Research is going to give you a ton of stats for gathering. This research is essential to boost your gathering abilities. In addition, make sure that you enhance your marketplace for even more resource gathering speed.
Elite Tip Four: Pay Attention to Your Hero and Lord
Make a gathering preset for your Lord and make sure it is focused on troop capacity and gathering speed. This will help you to be more efficient when gathering.
When you are looking at your Hero make sure he has a pet. An Ogre may not be the cutest pet ever but he will help with gathering. In addition, make sure that you toss on some runes that will help with gathering too.
Elite Tip Five: Pay attention to When and Where you are Gathering
If you are gathering during a time when there are kill events going then expect to be tile hit. If you are gathering during Alliance Wars then make sure you are also gathering on your Alliance Resource Tile (BTW, if you have any troop capacity boosts use these only on your Alliance Tile). Only send enough troops to the tile to be able to clear the tiles. Watch for the 300% Boost in Capital gifts to speed up your gathering time as well. If there are gathering events coming up time your marches so they are coming home during that time.
Elite Tip Six: Do Not Forget to Sprinkle a Little Magic Into your Day
Use your Ancient Magic Wisely. If it is in Kingdom during Alliance Wars be sure to use it on your Alliance Tile. If you are using it during Blood Moon then be sure to use it at the very beginning so it can cool down and be used again. Remember to boost and use all the tips about capacity above to get the most out of your Magic.
