Experienced and veteran players are adept at managing their resources in Rise of Kingdoms. It means stacking up on resource tokens, making the most use out of their resources, such as food and stone, and even have at least a few farming accounts up and running so that they can gain a competitive edge over their opponents.
Managing your resources is one of the challenging aspects in Rise of Kingdoms and other games. As you gather resources that you need to upgrade your building or train a batch of troops are expensive in the late game. It is why it’s more important than ever to know how to manage your resources.
Welcome to my guide: Best Resource Management Guide for Beginners in Rise of Kingdoms. I will talk about the best ways to manage your resources. This guide covers the basics for beginners and more advanced tips for players who have at least several hours up to their sleeves.
Conserve Your Resource Items
As a rule of thumb, you should save your resource items until you need to use them to upgrade your buildings or to train troops and research technologies. Then, spending your resource tokens and chest should be used in case of emergency.
Experienced Rise of Kingdoms players has their inventory tab chock full of resources. If you ever get zeroed during your first and second KVK seasons. These resources will help you get back into the battle quickly.
It brings me to the point that you always should buy resource items in the Courier Shop. Buy the resource tokens and boosters at discounted prices.
In summary of this tip:
- Try to save your Resource Tokens and Boosters.
- Save your Resource Chests.
- Use resource tokens if you can’t farm.
Max Out Your Gathering Speed
Another way to improve your resource management is to maximize your gathering speed. For starters, I recommend leveling up these gathering commanders to get a head start bringing the resources on the map to your city:
You also can speed up your commanders’ gathering rate using items like Enhanced Gathering, which the governors can buy from the Courier Shop and Quests. Runes also improve your gathering speed, founded around Holy Sites.
While I highly recommend speeding up your VIP status to level 6, it’s optional to further invest in your VIP level because at Level 11, and you will get a 20% gathering speed bonus, which is a massive help in managing your resources.
In addition to that, you will be able to access the VIP shop and purchase valuable items. So it is a win-win situation for free-to-play players.
Farm Barbarians & Forts
Did you know that you actually can get resources from barbarians and forts too? If you have peacekeeping commanders like Belisarius, Aethelflaed, or Boudica, I highly recommend putting three talent points into Trophy Hunter, which gives you 15 resource packs for every victory battle.
One of the best ways to do this is chain-farming barbarians which can be done using commanders with AoE active skills like Aethelflaed and stack with an infantry-only army as they are slower and tanky enough to group them.
The only time you should be attacking Barbarian Forts is when you want to get more Book of Covenants or to earn rewards for defeating the Barbarian Fortresses. Alternatively, you can do the Lohar’s Trial, which will give you a massive amount of resource packs for each bone necklace.
Make sure you save your action points so you can spend them on events that involve killing barbarians for even greater resource rewards. Always utilize whenever action points you have available and let them replenish over time.
Complete Your Daily Objectives
The daily quests are a big part of the game, and they always give out resource tokens/chests, including a golden key at the end of the goal. If you are not doing your daily objectives, you miss out on the opportunity to reap the rewards.
Therefore, make sure you are doing your daily objectives like:
- Opening your VIP Daily Chest.
- Opening your Daily Special Offer Chest
- Do all the Daily Quests
- Do all the Event Quests
- Win all Arena Battles (i.e Sunset Canyon)
- Do your Expedition Mode
Remember to do it every day. It is the easiest way to collect a lot of resources in a brief timeframe. But, as I said before, don’t miss this out!
Create a Mini Farming Account
One of the most powerful methods to farm and manage enormous resources is to launch a few mini farming accounts.
As a free-to-play player, you will need at least one or two mini farming accounts to generate additional resources. So that way, you can transfer resources from these farming accounts to your main account to accelerate your game progression.
These mini farming accounts are like your ATM, and you can access them anytime you want to. As you advance to the late game, the resource cost to level up buildings, upgrade commanders, train troops, and research technology will become expensive.
Even if you are already doing all of these resource management tips above, you will still barely meet ends. Therefore, a mini farming account is profitable and gives you a significant advantage over other players that don’t utilize this resource management trick.
Conclusion of How to Get More Resources Guide
As you grow in power, the resource cost will only go up for everything from buildings to troops to technologies, which is why you must learn how to manage your resources.
In some instances, you will become an expert at getting more resources to your main account through multiple channels like mini farming accounts, daily quests, hunting barbarians, and even conserving your resources.
