# Leveling the Fortress

Hi @ all first of all I must say thank you for this Forum. I learned so much and whenever I need something I read and had good advices on Heroes which to keep and which to feed. Now to my question. My Fortress is Level 12 and I would like to level up to 13 but it costs over 600k Iron. How? How can I get that amount? My buildings for iron storage are lvl 10 and 9 so do I have to level them up first to 12?

Yeah, you have to level up your storages so you can accumulate more iron for those upgrades.

Maybe you can also build more storages, not sure how many you can have at lvl 12â€¦

As you need more and more iron, youâ€™re going to need more and bigger iron storages. At least get the second one up to 10 â€“ can you already build a third iron storage at that stronghold level, or does that come later?

And make sure you do not convert them as they will no longer be used as storage if you do that.

Hey 2 Storages are lvl 10 one 8 and one 9 so I have to bring all 4 iron storages to 12 right?

No I donâ€™t I only convert the mines if I need to level up troops and convert right back.

Thank you all and if someone have that link would be cool.

Here are the stronghold levels with the needed amount of iron for each level:

here are the iron storage levels with the capacity:

Hope this helps

So level 13 needs 619k

Storages:
2 at 10: 2x 162 k
1 at 9: 138 k
1 at 8: 115 k
= 577 k
42 k neededâ€¦so, the 8 => 9 and the 9 => 10 should be sufficient (+47 k)â€¦or both 10 to 11. Or a mix

The longterm goal of upgrading your castle is to get to level 20, where you can start Legendary training in your camps (at level 20).

A good goal to aim for is to get all your iron storages at level 18. Once that happens, focus on all your food storages (as youâ€™ll need lots of food) and then getting your recruits capacity to at least 100 (the more the better).

@Ljiljana Here is a tip for when you are at Stronghold 19 and want to get to 20, if you have all 5 Iron Storages at 18, just hit your maximum and BAM! You will have enough iron for SH 20.

What do you mean by maximum?

@Ljiljana The amount of iron you can have in your inventory. That is what the storages increase.

Lol now I got it. Okayyyyy

@Ljiljana If you want to see what your current max is, just click on your iron amount that is right next to your food.
