Rook - what am I spending food on?
My main food spending is on levelling up my heroes - I have been rainbow levelling - Finley (although thankfully just finished) Margaret (3/58), Sartana (3/62), Vivica (3/62) and Azlar (3/30) feeding all 2* feeders of the same colour, as well as 2nd Mist (3/49), 2nd Scarlett (3/15), 2nd Sonya (4/41), Fura (2/44) and Kashrek 2/10 with all my 1* fodder.
The latter stages of the 5* heroes are very expensive and seem to use up all my food resources. Up until the weekend I had run out of 3* heroes to max which would reduce the cost burden but did pick up a 2nd Gato in Atlantis so I am levelling him now instead of Sonya to make a saving.
Besides this I probably use too much resources on my titan hits, we are battling 10* titans currently and in order to get reasonably high scores I use 5 mana pots per hit. Not sure of the cost but it does seem to mount up.
I have spare emblems to put on my heroes, predominantly 5* heroes, and these always cost a lot of food (and iron of course) and I have a ton of troop feeders which will just have to wait - we all know how expensive it is to upgrade troops!
I have tried to increase my raiding, which has helped a bit. Now that Finley is finished I will resume levelling Sonya-2, which will be a bit cheaper. I guess I could throw all my 1* heroes in 3* Gato which would reduce the food burden. However I have got to a level where I am predominantly levelling only 3/4* dupplicates now and my main focus is on increasing my 5* stable. I have the ascension mats for Sartana and Vivica, so will go through to the final level with them but the others; Margaret and Azlar will wait at 3/70, while I do another Green (lots of options Kadilen, Ratatoskr, Zocc or Gregorian) and Elena.
Sorry I went on a bit but would be glad for any advice to ‘triage’ my food spending! What would you prioritise knowing the facts as I have posted them?
