Basic Evony Beginners Guide

Evony is a
free, real time strategy game that is fun and easy to play. Some people may be
new not just to Evony, but also to the whole concept of playing strategy based
browser games. If you are used to RPG games then the good news is that Evony has much in common with many online RPG games, but also it has many differences. This guide is aimed at
helping those beginners enjoy the game by avoiding some of the pitfalls after first signing up to play Evony.

Make the
Most of Beginner’s Protection

starting out in Evony you receive a 7 day beginner’s protection which means
that other players cannot attack you.
Use this time wisely and develop your city as far as you can in the time
available. If you attack someone while under beginner’s protection it will be
removed automatically, so only attack when you are sure you are ready. The only
other way you can lose beginners protection is by building your town hall to
level 5 or above. A level 4 town hall is fine for the early stage of the game
and so timing the building of it to level should coincide with the end of your
week of protection if possible.

Management of Game Resources is Important

Managing Game Resources

Like most online
strategy games managing resources is a central part of game play and this is no
different in Evony.

The four
basic resources in the game are:

– Used to make buildings, weapons for troops and also in some types of
– Used to finance buildings, research and troops, but also to pay heroes and
buy goods from the market.
– Again used primarily as a building material, but also for some weapons and types
of research.
– Becomes more important the further into the game you progress, but is once
again used for research and troop building.

Of these
four resources food is important to feed your troops, but so long as you have a
small surplus all should be fine. The
real limiting factor in the early game is wood as it is used for almost
everything. For every five resource tiles you build, make sure two of them are
lumber mills.

The balance
between resources changes as you progress through the game and iron will become
increasingly important, but when starting off wood is probably the biggest
limitation to overcome.

Attack and Defence

building a barracks and training troops is important, you must also realise
that building high walls and traps or other forms of defence also plays a
role. While you cannot lose your last
city in Evony it is very frustrating to be placed under suzerainty and have to
pay a small amount of your income directly to another player. Doing what you
can to help your defence will reduce this risk.

walls and placing archer towers on them can be a really effective defence
against anyone around your own level of strength. When combined with traps that are available
very early in the game these can enable you to win most defensive battles.

It is very
hard to give exact numbers for defensive troops as army strengths can vary so
wildly. Players more advanced may have
armies that number in the millions, so any attempt to tell you that having “X”
defensive troops would be poor advice. So
what should a new player do?

Make Playing Evony More Fun

As already
mentioned Evony is a real time strategy game, but what wasn’t mentioned is that
part of that strategy is political alliances.
A beginning player is well advised to join an active alliance. The help
and advice you will receive from a good alliance is invaluable and having other
players to chat with makes the whole game more enjoyable overall.

experienced players can help you with resources or help you with basic strategy
if you should need it. If your city does happen to get taken over by another
player, your friends can help you break free too. Overall, joining an alliance
is one of the most fun things about Evony and it can be really great when you
join in at a mass battle with your friends.
