Coppersky's Compendium - an unofficial game guide

I think I found an edit.

Under Stronghold:

After the tutorial you have 5 slots available to build a farm, iron storage, and food storage.

It only lists three buildings but 5 slots. Also, I’m at SH20 and have 4 TCs, but I only see 3 listed; SH5, SH11 and SH20.

Buildings after tutorial: 1 mine, 1 house, 1 training center, 1 iron storage, and 1 forge
5 expansion slots after tutorial: 3 farms, 1 food storage, 1 iron storage
@Coppersky in the Wiki (base/stronghold) is also just mentioned “5 slots” but not that 3 slots are for farms
By the way, thanks for your efforts :kissing_heart:

Yes I also say that you do very little damage when missing a hero. It pays not to have a missing hero I believe.

Didn‘t want to start a new topic on this.

I am currently running towards stronghold20, currently @17. Is there any tips or proposals that suggest which level all your Buildings should have by hitting it? And tbc i Dont mean restrictions like ‚all iron storages on Lv18‘ I‘m more concerned with Mines, Forge, Windmills - TrainingCamps. I want to get to TC20 asap because I lack 4* Heroes like Wu and stuff!
Thnx in advance

I think it’s really up to you, if you’re not talking about building limitations.

I’m personally going for all 20’s because I like nice and complete packages…but I’m gonna do them in a certain order because some are more useful than others:

  • Training Camps (currently 16-20)
  • Forges (15-20)
  • Mines (17-18)
  • Farms (14-15)
  • Barracks (4)
  • Houses (10)
  • Iron Storage (18)
  • Food Storage (14-15)
  • Watchtower (10)

I’m perfectly fine if I leave everything as it is now, but there’s that completionist in me… :wink:


Depends on what you want. I rushed to TC20 cause I’m fairly low-paying user abd did not have thay good heroes. Because of this I heavily prioritised stronghold and tc. Rest of my building at SH20 were:
Farms 9-10, one even unbuild.
Mines 10-11, and one 16 (would be lower but VIP caused a shortage)
Watchtower 15(liked upgrading it when I hat that irpn shortage)
Forge 7 (only one build, others are still not up)
Barracks 1.
Tc 2x11 and 13.

Now after I got SH20 and upgraded one TC to 20 I was in a big hurry with my farms, had to upgrade them non stop for a while. Also I did suffer somewhat because of my low level forge. But I don’t regret it, I got TC20 really fast and I knew the risks of not levelling farms or forge.

how long it took you to get sh at 20 and first tc at 20, since you started playing? and do you maybe remember how long until tc13?

I don’t exactly remember my numbers, but I know I was later than other players; I didn’t push as hard. :slight_smile:

You can get tc13 fairly quick. I‘d say 1.5 months maybe? tC20 I‘d suppose u need maybe 4-5 months. But it depends on priorities and if u have the vip


I think for me it was little over 3 months, with maybe little over month being with VIP.
If you take VIP from the start I’d say you can get to TC 20 maybe in little over 2 months. Without VIP, 5 months. That’s with extreme optimization and rushing towards it.
TC13? not long, couple of weeks, maybe under 2 with VIP.


Since you already need (estimated)
Stronghold 37 days
Ironforge 9 days times 5 - 45 days
Traincamp 23 days

I would doubt these fast numbers. Not taking in account that you also have to level especially your mines to get the iron and farms to get food. Take 5-6 months as rough estimation better than ridicilous numbers such as 2 months haha

Doubt all you want. Fact is I have now played 4 months, and I have trained 7 legendary training in my single TC that is lvl 20. That means that 3 weeks ago I finished upgrading my TC to level 20.
I started before VIP existed, so I’m not sure how the resources keep up with VIP in the start. But I am willing to claim that if you start again, optimize everything for TC20, you can get it under 2,5 months(with VIP).

If you spend money/gems on filling up your Iron - maybe. Otherwise I don‘t see it happening that fast.

Perhaps future versions of @Coppersky ’s Compendium will hint at how to optimize for SH20/TC20 using the new VIP… :wink:

2 posts were merged into an existing topic: How to Contact Support (v1.9.7 onwards)

Not sure what the numbers will be, but I lost a LOT of iron because my iron storage was always full. Iron from raiding, iron from titan loot, iron from Wanted mission chest, all that iron, just … lost.

I was able to hoard food ( Note 1 ), so when I run out of iron with two builders, I can take some of my food hoard and increase my mines, or when my mines are all 20, my watchtower.

Note 1
As an aside, I currently have too much food, due to lack of ascension items, recruits and good 5* heroes, so I have not touched my farms since April 13th ( about ten days ).

For easier sharing in game, you can put it in the first post as well :wink:


I have 2 Kiril’s that are exactly the same. When I double stack them, I have consistently had them charge at the same time. Could it be that one hero of the 2 (if different heros) have a slightly different ratio as to when, how much they get charged?

Wow:laughing: Youre the man
