A new Craftsman Challenge could be coming soon!
A Manufacturing Craftsman Challenge began on Beta on August 19th. If previous patterns hold true, we can look forward to a Manufacturing Challenge beginning Monday, September 2nd.
Challenges are mini event features that last for 3 days. There are different challenges that may run, the next one we are expecting is a Manufacturing Challenge.
Produce goods in any manufactory and earn Medals towards milestones to win rewards. Read on for a summary of how the Challenge event works.
Play the Challenge
The Challenge is available to both browser and mobile players. When a Challenge is running, you will see the following icon in your game next to your player profile:
Click on the icon to see an overview of how to gain medals, and how many medals it takes to reach each prize. Hover over the sacks of gold to see each prize description.
Earning Medals is very easy. When you complete an action worth medals, medals are automatically added to your balance.
The total number of Medals needed to complete the challenge is shown at the end of the progress bar, along with the Grand Prize. You can also earn prizes at milestones along the way.
When you reach a milestone, a pop-up will appear showing you what you’ve won.
The rewards which were available for the last Craftsman Challenge that ran on Beta were as follows:
3 Ancient Knowledge
7 Ancient Knowledge
Tips for Craftsman Challenge
Build several small level 1 Manufactories. Note there is no requirement that productions must be for your boosted good; any manufactory will do. Build the smallest type to fit more into the same space.
Prepare to earn as many Medals as you can by setting productions in advance. Set manufactories for 2 days or 1 day, depending on how far you are preparing in advance.
for 5400 Medals
Hold off casting enchantments until the event begins. Cast as many as you can afford, even several per building, they will stack and they will not go to waste!
Once the Challenge begins, set the shortest productions you can depending on how often you are able to play; the shorter the production time, the more Medals can be gained per hour.
~Good luck, and Happy Gaming!~
