I’ve been farming a long time and I’ve built up a lot of recruits since to me efficient farming means maximizing recruits while farming for whatever else I’m farming for (mostly backpacks these days)
I’ve been farming Atlantis Rises HARD, buying deals with loot tickets and WE refills plus sometimes extra refills during AR to autofarm, and the ever since AR came out I’ve had between one and three TC2s running non-stop. My biggest limiting factor is ham – I’m currently only runing one TC2 so I can catch up on my feeder troops, and I’d craft more mana pots if I had the ham too.
If I had tons more ham, I could use all my rugged clothes and eat ~60% of my recruit surplus, and if I had even more tons of ham, I could start using swords until I ran out, and I’d still have most of my swords leftover.
But if my recruit bank isn’t going down, it goes up every month – I don’t have the ham to use it this way, and it is holding 20M hams right now that I can’t get out, and I’d love to use it all leveling up troops, or at least stop putting more ham in behind it.
I’m starting to think it is time to stop adding to this queue. I know I’m not the worst resource hoarder in this game, 'tho I might be close. @Gryphonknight, you are the biggest hoarding advocate I know; what do you think?
