    Default NPC Level 1 Farming

    I've attacked several lvl 1 NPCs, but I cannot quite figure out the best way to farm them. Should I do waves? What should I do to minimize losses? I can easily wipe them out, I just can't figure out the best way to get the resources and take out the troops.

    Use this guide:
    http://bbs.evony.com/showthread.php?t=42643

    I have lvl. 8 archery/lvl. 6 horseback riding. I have found that if you send 20 ballistas and 43 transports, you can plunder all of the Lvl 1 NPC's resources without taking any losses.

    Remember, read the guide! You must have the right Arch./HBR combination.

    This is the way that I figured out the number of transports. A transport can carry 5000 load. So I looked at the total resources and divided by 5000.

    Several people have commented that you can use much less ballistas and transports if you take into consideration the level of your technology (I haven't figured that in yet). For now, my simple guide is as follows:
    Lvl 1 NPC: 20 ballistas/43 transports
    Lvl 2 NPC: 50 ballistas/71 transports
    Lvl 3 NPC: 170 ballistas/240 transports
    Lvl 4 NPC: 250 ballistas/452 transports
    Lvl 5 NPC: 550 ballistas/798 transports

    When I get a chance, I try to figure in how your level of Technologies will reduce these numbers.

    The only problem is that I do not have high enough techs to get ballistas...so I have to work with warriors, workers, and archers.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Work on upgrading your barracks and techs first. In this stage of the game you shouldn't have a problem with food yet.

    If you are however short of it, ask your alliance for some supply.

    Hmmm... a ballista's attack = 450 and an archer's attack = 120, so a ballista is roughly worth about 4 archers. transports carry 5000 load, while a worker carries 200. So a tranport is worth about 250 workers.

    I'm not sure about this... you can send archers and workers, but you're going to need some warriors, pikes and swords to form a rainbow (so your archers don't get wiped out). You also have to worry about the Lvl 1 NPC's 1000 traps, so you need some warriors to clean them out.

    I'm still learning about combat mechanics, so I'm not the best person to give advice. I think that you're going to take some losses without ballistas.

    The main defence on level 1 npc's is traps. There are 1,000 traps and only small numbers of other troops.
    My preference is 2,000 warriors and 1,000 workers. You lose around 200 - 300 of each but the net gain is still good. Those losses could be lower with a decent hero.
    PEACE
