After building a facility, you can then spend resources to upgrade it. Doing so will make resource production more efficient and will benefit your empire in the long-run. So if you upgrade your farms, then more food will be produced, and subsequently more prosperity within your empire.
Raise Your Army
Part and parcel of a formidable empire is a powerful army.
In Evony, soldiers can be trained in military infrastructure like barracks, archer camps, and stables. You can also craft war machines like catapults through a workshop.
A battalion of soldiers is useless if they have no general to lead them. Generals in Evony are not just generic characters but are special ones that can give stat boosts to your troops during battles. These stat boosts range from increased HP to increased attack damage. Generals are recruited in the tavern and can be upgraded to spawn and house stronger generals to lead your army.
What is even better is that you can have real historical figures as your generals. If you are lucky enough to unlock them, you can have figures like Genghis Khan, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Julius Caesar as generals.

Solve Puzzles to Find Treasures
Aside from empire-building, Evony also contains a series of puzzle games.
These sub-games are “pull the pin” puzzles in which you “pull” pins in a specific order, as well as within a specific timing, in order to ensure that a constantly moving character reaches the destination unharmed. The destination is a treasure chest that rewards you with resources that you can use in developing your empire.
There are multiple puzzles to solve. Each sets of puzzles are themed according to a particular historical setting in the world (i.e. ancient Egypt). You unlock more puzzles as you keep levelling up in the game.
Conquer Parts of the World
To increase the range of your power, you can go beyond the perimeter of your empire and occupy other territories.
The world map contains areas that you can raid to garner particular supplies. Moreover, you can send your army to attack a group of hostiles and take away their resources.
You can even attack the empire of another player; however, make sure that you have a powerful enough army to do so.
Sending your troops out to venture the rest of the world map can take time. Depending on the distance of their destinations, troops can take less than 15 seconds to several minutes to arrive there.
