More Iron Production needed

I just did the math for the Iron production and noticed a big disparity. With 2 maxed Mines and 2 maxed Advance Mines, total Iron production is 17342/hour. However, with the Advanced buildings, most buildings cost over 1 million to upgrade, with many of the upper levels over 2 million. It shouldn’t require over 100 hour of Mine production for each upgrade. Please allow us to build at least one more mine or increase the production of current one.

What makes this even more of a chore with the advanced farm / mine is that during the time they are upgrading, they don’t produce any food / iron.

It’s really bad with the advanced mine: Advanced Farm and Mine Analysis

That said, I still don’t know if the iron bundles / relics from PoV can help make up for that, as I haven’t used them yet myself.


They do not make up for that.

Someone who has used them myself.


raid more - 20 iron fists


I didn’t do any analysis on it, but it didn’t seem too painful to me to do an advanced farm and Annabelle mine at the same time. Since they used a smaller portion of the other resources it seemed to work out ok without slowing me down too much

:triangular_flag_on_post: for merge.

I haven’t used any of mine either. I mean, I guess if I get desperate, but in the grand scheme of things the Iron Bundles amount to as much iron as potentially taken in raids while you are at work for 12 hours without access to the game.

Screw iron!! Gold is much more valuable!!!

As long as she isn’t the proprietor…

I saw that one but did mine separate because I’m looking at Iron. That one focuses on food production and usage

Oops grabbed the wrong one… this one is aimed more at the Iron Production side of things

There is also this summary thread (of sorts) from Zeph kind of putting the various “more resources” ideas together:

I know what you mean but there are those people who have played for years and they did it they hard way
This game is supposed to take time fully upgrade your watch tower and make plenty of raids

I’m one that has played for a couple years and have seen the costs then vs. now. My main reasoning for this request is the increased Iron cost of the new upgrades is far beyond the increased production we have been given. The new Advanced buildings have added over 1 million to the normal building cost, yet we only got an increase of 2800/hour to compensate for it. I think that increase should have been much higher.

I have my Iron production maxed out and still can’t keep up with the new Iron costs. That’s what made me do the math on this because I was able to keep up and often get ahead before the Advanced buildings increased the Iron costs
