Kingdoms of Camelot Tutorial
Kingdoms of Camelot is a game that can be played through Facebook. It is a real-time multiplayer strategy game that is every similar to Evony (www.evony.com).
In this game, you should join an alliance and work together to build your cities and armies. Your alliance will be there for your support and mutual defense. By far, this group of players will be your biggest advocates as you grow your kingdom.
Your buildings are capped at level nine unless you are fortunate enough to acquire a Divine Inspiration. If you would like to earn one, please read Kingdoms of Camelot Tutorial - Divine Inspiration.
What should you do with it?
Once you have acquired the item, Divine Inspiration, you need to make a decision on how to use it.
While you may use this item on any level nine building, there are a few that should be noted for consideration.
The Alchemy Lab is the building to consider for upgrading first.
Upgrading to a level ten Alchemy Lab unlocks several level ten researches become unlocked:
- Eagle Eyes - gives more details while scouting
- Poisoned Edge - improves attack by 5%
- Featherweight Powder - increases troops' loads by 10%
- Magical Mapping - increases infantry's marching speed by 10%
- Fletching - improves projectiles' range by 5%
- Healing Potions - increases troops' health by 5%
- Giant's Strength - increases construction speed by 10%
Upgrading the Alchemy Lab first will allow you to improve your strength, health, speed, and range. These attributes will enable your army to tackle stronger opponents and will improve your resource collections.
This is definitely an option to consider first.
A level nine castle allows you to control nine wildernesses and 37 field slots (farms, mines, sawmills, or quarries).
Using the Divine Inspiration to upgrade to a level ten castle will allow you to control ten wildernesses, 40 field slots and to upgrade to level 10 cottages.
This is a significant boost in resources. Another Kingdoms of Camelot Tutorial discusses food management practices. Farms and food will be the limiting factor as you progress in the game.
Adding three field slots will allow you to build three level nine farms. Each level nine farm will produce 4,500 food per hour, for a total of 13,500 additional food per hour. The additional wilderness slot will allow you to take advantage of a level 10 lake or grassland, improving your food production by another 50%.
Upgrading your castle first is a very good option as it eases your food drain when your might increases.
Level nine walls provide 4,500,000 durability and has 45,000 defensive unit spaces.
If you use the Divine Inspiration to upgrade this building to a level ten, the durability will increase to 5,500,000 and will allow 55,000 defensive unit spaces.
If you engage in a lot of PvP (Player versus Player) combat, or your alliance is fairly aggressive, then upgrading a wall first may be a good step to protecting your resources. To breach this upgraded wall, the enemy will need to be extremely fortified and will probably suffer great losses getting through your defenses.
