A basic guide for absolute beginners

For those of us without any experience at all, it would be nice for a little basic guide in the best way to level up your heroes, what to look for when selecting your tea. & basic tips and tricks like upgrading farms and mines etc.
Just have it as a pin so people can refer to it.

There’s plenty of very useful threads for bigginers spread around the forum. Just use the search function and you’ll find lots of useful info on any given subject. And by all means, join a training alliance, you’ll learn lots of tricks from more experienced players.

Basic guide? I’ll be more than happy to help. Option 1. Spend a boatload of cash daily, weekly, or monthly, depending on your available income. Option 2. Uninstall and enjoy spending your cash in another manner. Good luck with your decision!!

Live service game

This changes with most updates because Empires is a live service game ( they are notorious for poor in game information )

Thank you so much for all of this. Incredibly kind of you.
I have been doing my own research, and have come across the You Tube channels and the wiki site.
I was just a little frustrated at how in the dark I was after the walkthrough and before I was able to join an alliance.

But thank you so much for the effort that you’ve taken to collate this.

Thank you so much for this.
I have been doing some of my own research and did come across the YouTube vids.
I was just a bit fustrated at being blind in between finishing the walkthrough and joining an alliance
But thanks so much for all the info.

That was really kind.

New player base

No longer optimal build order ( for casual or hardcore ) due to recent developments

But

The above build order is still a very solid option for your base upgrades

Thanks.
Have a lot of reading to get through which is great.
Btw, love the name. Geology may rock, but Palaeontologists are there when the coprolite goes down

(ridiculous bragging warning) I actually was top of my class in Palaeo in 3rd year. Postgrad was Palynology and Palaeo ecology. Hard rock geology is more of a hobby that I just happen to be passionate about. I’ve read some hilarious well log reports of people cough BP cough about what they have tried to do to control potential blowouts. :thinking:

BTW, welcome to the forum. There are some truly wonderful helpful guys and girls here. It’s a safe environment. :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face:

No idea what you just said, but you get a like for your passion.
