Life hacks in GGE

I was bored and army is out looting so thought I would make this.


1) Recruitment

When recruiting do NOT recruit five at a time but instead 1 and then click the hep button. By doing so you will build your army faster and for less coins as when clicking help on 5 you get 1 extra troops if you recruit 1 at a time and click help each time you will get MORE for your money.

2) Equipment commanders

Instead of looting your towers with your normal commander create a new one and use 'equipment of the treasure hunter' to get a higher chance of good equipment. You could also the horse shoe symbol (and others) to increase your chance.

3) Castle development (if in a larger alliance do this)

. Build up your storage so that alliance members can send resources
. Upgrade your keep so that building time is reduced
. Expand your walls to max and upgrade
. Upgrade towers
. Bring tools over from other realms (defensive) so that you will receive support if attacked
. Gate and moat
. Farms (send some men over)
. Barracks
. Charcoal, wood and stone buildings
. Increase public order

The reason you should so this is because nobody will attack you if you don't have troops so build up your defenses and then send troops so that it is easier to defend and alliance members will support

4) Looting towers

Make sure you loot towers as once they get to a higher level will give you some loot and are a very good way to get coins. Also you get good equipment (sometimes, refer to number 2). So there are no negative things about looting them and very good rewards.

5) Food outposts

The best type of outpost to get would be food. having a food op will allow you to have more troops to loot with and send support with. If you ever see a shiny food op that is reasonable distance away make sure you take it as they are pretty rare and produce a lot of food.

6) Tool Sweeps

Do NOT tool sweep other players or use them in attacks. A tool sweep in when you send few expendable troops to get rid of the defenders tools to annoy them. Or when sending 1 troop on the first wave and then the full attack behind it. Only do this against robber baron castles.

7) RV's

Resource Villages or rv's are found in out kingdoms (everwinter etc) and are extremely useful. They increase resource production so they are very nice to have. Do NOT steal these of players as it will most likely cause a war and you will end up with non at all.

8.) Leveling

If your stuck on a level or got those damned dwelling quests go into your outpost get rid of all decoration and speed build level 1 dwellings. Once you have filled the space speed demolish it. Repeat this over and over and before you know it you will be one level higher!

    Many tips are well known,but thanks anyways:D
    Bards shall sing about the victories of ours,
    Enemies will fall under Chivalric Lords' towers
    Foes of their Leader will always tremble,
    But his and Chivalric Lords' allies will reassemble

    Every alliance must have 3 things: loyalty,rules and right to vote. Without them,it is not an alliance. It's anarchy.

    Okay, listen, we should get our stories straight, alright? If anyone asks -- and no one's gonna ask, don't worry -- but if anyone asks, tell them as far as you know, the last time you checked, everyone looked pretty much alive. Alright? Not dead.

    Nobody is going to space, mate!
    Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity. In Victorian England, a commoner was not allowed to look directly at the Queen, due to a belief at the time that the poor had the ability to steal thoughts. Science now believes that less than 4% of poor people are able to do this.

    "Starting now, if I'm honest, to wonder if you're doing all this screen-breaking on purpose. Beginning to actually take it personally. You know what I mean? Like, it's like an insult to me.""Ohh...! There goes another one. There goes another one. They're not inexpensive. I'd just like to point that out. Um, it seems... unfair, y'know, smashing screens. You could give them to people. Instead of smashing them, unscrew them and, and give them to like a homeless person, I don't know what a homeless person would do, but uh, you get my point. It just seems... and you can't unscrew them either, they're bolted in, but... auh, just stop it!!"
    "No, seriously. Do come back. Come back, please."
    "Okay, I've decided not to kill you. IF you come back."
    "Aw. Just thinking back to the old days when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?"
    "Can't help but notice you're not coming back. Which is disappointing."
    "Oo! I've got an idea!"
    "YES YES! IN YOUR FACE! I GOT YO-ah, nope."
    "Fine. Let the games begin."

    They usually ignore that fact, even after telling them it's wrong, now you have to burn them, to show them that its wrong

    well, you could just give the link out to new players who join your alliance/alliance subs, pacts, and family alliances. :)

    Dont tool clean... All is fair in Love and War. I have cost my enemies hundreds of real dollars by tool cleaning. It is fine to do in a war!!
    I have noticed how many people say that the game is impossible for non-ruby buyers to play. I am a non ruby buyer, but I have easily gotten to level 69, and I have 2 very built up 8 food op's and 1 very built up 6 food op. i also have a nice castle in ice, sands, and fire with Rv's. It is quite possible to play the game if you are not a ruby buyer.



    Looking for good players for my alliance on USA1. Message hge in-game or hge3 on forum.

    9) Fires - Fires don't spread so don't panic.
    Repairs under 10 minutes can be completed for free. To access those pesky towers on fire hidden behind the tall buildings in your castle, click the "Construction" button, the "Hide Buildings" tab and the "Battlements" tab. Now you can see all the towers without the buildings getting in the way. Easy to repair that one lonely tower burning in the back.
