Game of Thrones: Conquest is a game that will test your ability to work under constant pressure from external forces while dealing with internal issues regarding your House. Just like the original TV series, the game will throw so many adversities your way, to which you can react in your own way. Depending on your decisions early on, those choices will affect your future in the game whether you’ll just be another player weeded out by the strong or a survivor that’s here to play.

New players are quite susceptible to making a lot of mistakes early on in the game by not abusing some of the more useful tools that the game offers you. Even though the players that spend real money will most likely stand on top of the server, there’s no reason free-to-play users can’t stand alongside the strong. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you become stronger at the game to the point where you too will be able to compete against the cream of the crop moving forward.

Consuming Speedups & Resource Crates

The most annoying part about playing real-time strategy games is waiting for something to get completed. It becomes even worse during the late game when your upgrade timers last for hours or even days on end. There’s nothing much you can do during the late game, but it’s those early stages when we can do something to help you. Consuming speedups in the early stage of the game is important so that you set up your production rapidly enough to not have to waste time in between log-in sessions.

When you’re first starting out, timers are skippable or last less than an hour. This is the perfect time to consume all of your 1-minute or 5-minute speeds. Consuming speedups can cause your production to lag behind because the supply can’t keep up with the demand. Luckily, the game provides resource crates that you can use to refill your resources.

Sticking Together

One of the most efficient ways to ensure your safety in Game of Thrones: Conquest is to join an Allegiance. Allegiance members help each other by defending each other or pitching in by sending a portion of their troops when one of your members is attempting to attack. If you are a member of an active and reputable Allegiance, the chances of other players attacking you drop significantly because they don’t want to anger your members by triggering them by extension.

One problem that you may face is that just being a member of an allegiance might not be enough to protect you from harm. If you are located far away from your allegiance members, they might take longer to send reinforcements. The game gives you a free relocator at the beginning so use that so that all of your allies are situated on one place of the map. This way, it’s easy to send troops to each other in terms of defense and also give you the advantage when attacking other players.

Buying More Builders/Maesters

Even if you have a lot of speedups, it still doesn’t change the fact that you have a lot of things that you need to upgrade in a short amount of time. The best way to get ahead of the competition is using the Gold Coins that you earn to buy additional builders and maesters to help you out. Even though they are usable only for a limited amount of time, it still helps you triple your productivity since there are more  buildings or technology being worked on while you’re offline.

The game gives you extra builder vouchers at the beginning but you might also want to spend on a third builder as well. This ensures that you develop your facilities faster, especially production buildings so that you never waste time trying to wait for each individual building to finish. This is especially useful during the mid to later stages of the game. Two maesters are enough since research is bottlenecked by the level of your Maester Tower so having a third one is redundant.

Craft Hero Equipment

Hero Equipment is a good way to increase your stats. Crafting them can be quite a pain but it’s worth the effort since they easily give you an instant surge of 60,000-70,000 combat power at the beginning of the game to scare off a lot of other players. One thing that players might get confused about is how to get materials. Materials can be earned simply by attacking monsters on the map or by completing the quests and missions that Tyrion Lannister gives you.

There are different types of Hero Equipment to choose from but make sure to start with Level 1 items first since you probably don’t have the materials for the higher level ones. As you play longer, you can improve the quality of the equipment that you’re crafting for your hero. This will help a lot in a lot of aspects of your House such as economic stability and military strength. It’s up to you how often or which items you want to craft for your hero.

Rush to Keep Level 10 

The game only truly starts when your Keep reaches Level 10. This is when you unlock a lot of other features like the Stone Quarry. Once a player’s Keep is upgraded to Level 10, veteran players will start taking notice of you and know that you’re in this game for the long-term. Most players quit before this level, either because they no longer find the game interesting or because other players have conquered and robbed them severely enough to make them quit.

It’s a good idea to rush your Keep to level 10 before your free Peace Shield expires. There’s no real rush on you doing this, especially if your server isn’t necessarily filled with aggressive players, but if you really want to be taken seriously, this should be a milestone that you should set for yourself.
