    Virk's Noob Guide
    PART I - Beginners Protection


    So I'm not going to make a list of "do .... collect reward" , but instead I'm going to show you two main things about getting the most out of beginners protection. One how to get the most prestige in beginners protection and two how to build your city so that you are ready to take on everyone when you get out of beginners protection.



    Getting the most prestige in beginners protection


    First you need to know the three basic things:

    • Never except any promotions until your out of beginners protection.
    • Never upgrade your town hall past level 2 in the first 5 days.
    • Always be building something.


    By doing this when ever you attack a valley or build a building you get more prestige. Ultimately this will get you more prestige so you can get in a
    better alliance.

    Now to go into detail with this. The whole point of having a horrible town hall and no promotions is that the game mechanics are made so that if it
    were more realistic. Just like honor works... when you attack bigger players and win you can get more honor. Same thing, but instead you get prestige. Pretty cool huh?

    Research
    While in this time it is important to focus on the research for your resource production. You also can get
    reasonable amounts of prestige from research. So I would suggest getting a hero with good intelligence for
    your research.(That's what I did for the first 5 days. Then I got a politics hero.)

    Attacking
    In beginners protection of coarse you can not attack other players but
    you can attack valleys and NPCs (Don't suggest attacking NPC's). While in
    beginners protection I did attack some, but ultimately I found it not something to rely on for prestige purposes.


    Kinda simple... Just a way you can get into a better alliance. (Using this I came out of beginners protection with around 90k prestige.)




    How to build your city

    I'm going to divide this into different sections per building. Stating what level and how many is needed and why.

    Barracks
    You need 10-12 of these. That way you can make more troops quicker.
    Anymore and you will not have enough room for cottages so you can make
    larger amounts of troops at one time.

    Cottages
    you need 8-10 of these. This is a good amount of cottages for building troops
    and for labor force.

    Sawmills
    To start of with(if you have a level 2 town hall) you need 6. You always need lumber!

    Farms
    You only need 2(at high levels) farms. Mainly because lumber can be sold to buy food and you can farm NPCs later on.

    Quarry

    You don't need any. Stone is very cheap and you can buy lots of it!!!

    Iron Mines
    You only need 6 of these to start of with(if you have a level 2 town hall). They are needed just like lumber.

    Ware House
    build only 1. That way if you get attacked you have food for comforting.(This also means you have to
    put the storage on food at 100.)

    Inn
    Keep it at level 1. That way you can destroy it and rebuild it to find new heroes.

    Relief station
    Very important for troop traveling time but not necessary in beginners protection.

    Overall when you are building try to to focus on getting your barracks, cottages and resource fields at high levels.

    Wall Defenses


    Wall defenses are good to have, but I would not focus on getting any until
    you are at the last couple days of beginners protection. The most important
    one is archer towers. This is because they can be used more than once,
    have great range and they are very effective. So if you get to building wall
    defenses build archer towers.




    This is how I built my city and I came out as a strong player.

    PART II - Right After Beginners Protection

    So there's a time right after beginners protection that you are still considered a noob. (This is usually the following week after beginners protection.)
    In this time you are venerable and can be plundered. This is also the time time you build your troops and being plundered can be a problem.
    In this part of my guide you will learn how to deal with these things.


    Being Attacked And Plundered


    To prevent losing battles and being plundered you need to follow a few things.
    • Always have one Ware House, because if you are plundered you need
      food to comfort.
    • Have good wall defenses.(At this point you need to be building Archer Towers)
    • Try to keep a good number of scouts to prevent scouting.(Their cheap and quick to make)
    • During this time have a good attack Hero as mayor so you can train troops faster and
      build up your army quicker. This will hopefully help you have more troops to defend your city.
    • Try to focus on researching your Iron working so you have a better defense.
    • Get in a good alliance. If you followed part one you should have enough prestige to get in a decent alliance. You will also need a good embassy so
      your alliance can send you reinforcements when being attacked. That also means you need a good Beacon Tower to see what is being sent at you.


    So these are basically all the things you need to have to prevent being plundered, so that you can build more troops with the resources you have saved.


    Building Your Army


    You are now at the point where you need to be building up you army so that
    you can fight others and have a better chance of winning. Here is some knowledge and tips about starting your army for the first time.


    The Roots Of A Good Army

    Ok like I stated earlier you need to be building your army at this time and there are three kind of troops you need to build the most of and that would be:

    (This is what helped me the most in my opinion at this stage of playing.)

    Swordsmen- For defense(don't help to much on attacking players)

    Archers
    - They are good for attacking and can also help defend your city.

    Warriors- They are weak in small numbers but when you have large
    amounts of them they can be a lethal fighting force.

    These are the roots of a good army and are needed even by the most
    experienced players.

    Supporting Your Troops


    It can get hard to support your army, so by now you should have an high
    enough barrack(lvl9) to make ballista. You can also use Archers too. Those
    are both good candidates for farming NPCs. To learn more about NPC farming
    go Here.


    The Main Parts of Every Army

    Scouts
    Scouts are needed even at this stage. While you may not be using them for
    scouting other players, you do need them to prevent the scouting of your
    city and if someone can't scout your city there's a good chance they wont
    attack you. So I would suggest that you at least have 6k scouts for now.

    While we are on this subject you need to get your informatics up as high as
    you can to help with this too.

    Cataphracts and Cavalry

    All I can say is that there good to have and if you can keep up with them
    then you will have a strong army, but they take so much food it can be hard
    to keep up with them at this stage.

    Pikemen and Swordsmen

    Both have good defense and are very effective against some of the most
    commonly used troops and in this case it's Cavalry and Archers. I would
    suggest using these to your advantage at this stage.

    Siege Weapons

    You don't really need them right now unless you are using ballista to farm
    NPC's. They are also very expensive to make. That is why I did not have to
    many siege weapons when I was at this stage of playing.

    Workers and Warriors
    Workers are useless and are only needed to make new cities. Warriors on the
    on the other hand are a great tool when in large numbers. Warriors can be
    crushed when defending a city though.


    Alliances


    Here is the basics of getting into a alliance and some of the benefits.


    Finding a good alliance

    Now during this time you should have came out with a good chunk of
    prestige, so that means it's time to join an alliance. All I can really say is talk
    to the host before you join. Find out about the members and how active
    they are. Also ask how many other alliances their in war with. That way you
    can determine if their a "baby alliance", or not.


    Embassy

    So the greatest benefit of alliance is that your alliance will be able to
    reinforce your city with troops, so if you get attacked you may survive.
    So I would suggest you get a embassy of at least level 5.



    Now you know How to build your army, how many is needed of each and how to prevent the plundering of your city.

    PART III - Other Information For Noobs

    Here in this section of my guide you will find other things that you my need to know. Kinda the basics of Evony, or things that you commonly ask about.
    Like medals and promotions, scouting tips, research, that sort of thing. In this part I'll just add as I go so bare with me.

    All of the following is true for all servers.

    Attacking Valleys and NPCs

    Here's what you need to send to attack a valley or NPC and win.

    Warriors

    (Credit goes to SARASCA for the warriors information.)

    Valleys
    Level One - 600
    Level Two - 1,200
    Level Three - 1,600
    Level Four - 2,200
    Level Five - 3,000
    Level Six - 3,500
    Level Seven - 5,200
    Level Eight - 9,000
    Level Nine - 16,000
    Level Ten - 20,000+

    NPC Cities
    Highly not suggest you attack NPCs with warriors, for one would have heavy loses.
    Level One - 2,500
    Level Two - 5,500
    Level Three - 13,000
    Level Four - 20,000
    Level Five - 29,000
    Level Six - 35,000
    Level Seven - 55,000
    Level Eight - 80,000
    Level Nine - 90,000 (15-25k more to ensure victory.)
    Level Ten - ??? (A lot more than 100,000.)

    Archers

    Valleys
    Level One - 50
    Level Two - 100
    Level Three - 200
    Level Four - 400
    Level Five - 800
    Level Six - 1,600
    Level Seven - 3,200
    Level Eight - 6,400
    Level Nine - 12,800
    Level Ten - ????

    Ballista
    Your going to have to be careful with this mainly, because this is estimated numbers.
    To find out what Research Mechanics you need go Here.

    NPC Cities
    Level One - 20
    Level Two - 50
    Level Three - 170
    Level Four - 250
    Level Five - 400
    After level 5 NPC's you begin to take loses, because of the defensive trebuchet.
    Level Six - 900
    Level Seven - 2,500
    Level Eight - 4,000
    Level Nine - 9,000
    Level Ten - ???? (Way more than 9,000.)

    Or follow this chart I just made:

    lvl3 30%
    lvl4 40%

    lvl8 24%
    lvl9 27%
    lvl10 30%

    So there's the basics of research.

    Scouting
    Here's the basics of scouting.

    In scouting there are two things that can increase your scouting abilities:

    • Researching informatics.
    • Sending a hero with high intelligence.


    And if you do have low informatics sometimes you will get scout reports that
    are hard to determine. So just follow this with those kind of scout reports:

    Few=1-24
    Pack=25-49
    Lots=50-99
    Horde=100-249
    Throng=250-499
    Swarm=500-999
    Zounds=1,000-2,499
    Legion=2,500-4,999
    Bulk=5,000-10,000
    Giga=10,000-Infinite


    Medals and Promotions

    Yes this is my medals guide, but it is extremely long so I will not be posting it here.

    Go Here for my medal guide.

    Its way to long for me to copy it over to here.



    Heroes


    While using heroes they have three different attributes. Here I will explain all three
    and I will tell you how to farm for heroes.


    Politics


    • Every attribute point into politics increases the production of all
      resources except gold by 1%.


    Actually that's all it does...

    Intelligence

    • Gives you better scout reports on scouting missions.
    • Increases the speed of research when put as mayor.


    Attack


    • Helps you have a better chance of winning when attacking.
    • Increases troop training speed when put as mayor.


    Hero Farming


    There are two ways to farm heroes:
    1. Keep your Inn at level 1 and keep destroying it and rebuilding it until you find your desired hero.
    2. Allow one extra space in feasting hall and keep recruiting and dismissing
      heroes until you find your desired hero.(Very gold consuming.)


    Taxes


    Taxes is what gives you gold and gold is needed for research and for buying resources.
    So remember these few things:

    • City Loyalty = 100% minus the percentage of tax rate.
    • Population = Population limit multiplied by the loyalty percentage.
    • Try not to over do your taxes, because if you do it could lead to the capture of your city from having to little loyalty.


    Here's a chart for taxes and loyalty.

    10% = 90 loyalty
    20% = 80 loyalty
    30% = 70 loyalty
    40% = 60 loyalty
    50% = 50 loyalty
    60% = 40 loyalty
    70% = 30 loyalty
    80% = 20 loyalty
    90% = 10 loyalty
    100% = 0 loyalty

    Virk's Noob Guide
    PART IV - The Basics Of Attacking Players

    Here I will talk about the different types of attacking, different strategies and how to ensure victory.


    Follow these steps. These steps will show just what you need to do.

    Step 1: When does the player get on?


    This is the first question you should ask your self. Now to figure this out you need to
    mail them anything that they will reply to and keep doing this until you get an average
    of what time (s)he is online. This may work it may not, but if you can get this to work
    out it can be a great advantage.

    Step 2: Scouting the player


    Now you need to scout the player that way you can average about how many troops
    you need. It will also show you what his research is so you can compare it with yours.

    Step 3: The attack


    Now its time to attack, but there are a few strategies you should consider.

    Rainbow ~ A rain bow is a attack consisting of great amounts of
    archers and one of warriors, cavalry, cataphract, scouts, swordsmen and
    pikemen. By sending these extra troops you are given extra rounds for your
    archers to attack.

    Layered Attacks ~ Layered Attacks is a attack consisting of three
    different attacks that are at most 30 seconds apart. The first attack
    consists of mainly warriors. These warriors will die, but they clear out
    traps, and other wall defenses for the second attack. The second attack
    consists of archers and sometimes I will throw in some cavalry and
    cataphracts. This attack will take losses depending on the amount you send.
    The third attack is basically everything else. This attack finishes up the job
    and also is for plundering if you want to.

    Scout Raids
    ~ Better Know as scout spamming, this attack consists
    of sending 150k plus scouts at a city and yes the scouts will die, but they
    are cheap to make. Because they are cheap and fast to make, they can
    be made in large numbers real quick, making them perfect for the job.
    Once you have sent a couple waves of scout raids you can then plunder
    the city.

    Warrior Raids
    ~ This is basically the same as a scout spam, but they
    are stronger and can make a bigger impact. They will take loses, but
    there is a greater chance of survivors with this strategy. This attack
    usually consists of 60k plus warriors. Then after the warrior raids you
    can now just plunder the city.

    That's the basics of attacking, but if you would like to learn more go here.

    I highly suggest you read the guide in the link I posted.



    This guide was tested on server 62.



    Credits

    Credits got to anyone who has helped or have contributed to my guide. I will state what this person did to
    contribute and what part it came from.

    Dark Brady ~ Part I - He corrected some things about quarries.

    Lord Ken Deathmarr ~ Part I - He suggested that ware houses are needed.

    Satan ~ Part I, Part II - He pointed out some things about the cottages and barracks
    amounts needed in your city. He also pointed out the dangers in attacking NPCs with warriors.

    I can't believe I'm saying this:

    I agree with Lord Ken. You need 1 warehouse.

    no way, one warehouse is necessary, but the second one will only be a waste of space

    1/
    Don't accept titles? Nonsense. There's abo****ely no reason to not accept titles whatsoever. Titles have zero direct effect on your prestige. Prestige is reduced by total town hall levels. Sayin' that, I agree w/ the TH2. Keep it at 2 for Academy and no more unless you seriously need the resource fields.
    Speakin' on all that, gettin' your prestige up should really be the last thing on your mind in BP. You should be aimin' to do quests and prepare for some attacks. The sooner you get your second city build the better off you'll be.
    2/
    Quarries? Screw that. Use lumbermills/ironmills and buy the stone. Don't waste precious space on quarries. Same can be said about farm, but it never hurts to have some farms at early stages.
    3/
    Warehouses are useless at that stage. End. If they want to jus' hit you once then you'll get back the food quickly enough. If they want to hit you again and again, then it'll break down your warehouse or you'll run out of comfort food fast.
    Only build them when you have spare slots and it doesn't even need to be a high level. Discard it when you need to build anythin' else.
    4/
    Ten barracks at that stage in the game? Seriously? You'll be lucky if you have the resources to keep up with constructions and research much less buildin' up ten barrack and then fillin' them with troops. Unless you know what you're doin' (in which case you have no use for a beginner guide) or are bein' supplied then you won't be producin' enough troops regularly enough for ten barracks to ever be close to neccesary.
    Focus on cottages and research buildin's mainly.
    5/
    10k traps? Are you havin' a laugh?
    Screw that. Build 1k traps and 1k abati. Don't give people and easy ride jus' cuz abati are expensive. Not to mention that traps can get wiped easily and abati don't. Save up the rest of your spare resources for ATs only. If someone's gunna attack, at least make sure it hurts.
    6/
    Where's the mention on Embassy and seekin' an alliance?
    The best thing you can possibly ever do ever in the game ever is find yourself a good, solid alliance before you exit BP. That's jus' the most important, swingin decision you can ever make in the entire game. Get an active, nearby alliance before you exit BP and you don't need to have a worry.
    No alliance by the time you exit BP and suddenly someone nearby will look at you with a hunger and there's not a thing you can do to stop them.
