Research for
Halflings chapter

When you first open the Halflings chapter, you’ll start with unlocking the Spring Grove. Once you’ve finished researching the Spring Grove, start building it right away.

First Research

From there you enter your first choice – Improved Trader, Irrigation Canal, or Halflings Farm?

Unlock the Improved Trader, first. This way, you can work on getting it upgraded and producing Divine Seeds while you work on the next technologies.

Elvenar Research Spring Grove

Unlocking the trader will set you back 125,000 Mana, and then you’ll need another 100,000 to pay for the trader upgrade. While you work on gathering that and then waiting for the upgrade, start researching the Irrigation Canal.

After the Canal, unlock the Halflings Farm.

Try to get a few built while you work on unlocking Agriculture, which you’ll need in order to build the Grain Fields.

From there, your next choice might depend on your priorities, but based on the goods that are needed for each research, a logical path is:

  • City Expansion 41
  • Orc Strategist Promotion
  • Rearranged Residences
  • Grape Farm
  • Squad Size upgrade

As can be seen in the requirements for each research, the Divine Seeds requirement is high.

Depending on the level of your main hall, the number of provinces you have completed, the number of Ancient Wonder levels you have, and how often you can collect from the trader, you will be able to collect anywhere from around 9,000 – 17,000 or more Divine Seeds a day.

You’ll want to collect as often as possible from the trader to keep up with the Divine Seeds requirements.

Mana requirements don’t get any easier from previous chapters, either. It will be important to maintain high mana production.

Further, be sure to plan your production and collection of the Grain Field resources well; Bread, which requires Wheat (from level 1 field) and Carrots (from level 2 field), will be needed through the end of the chapter.

RESEARCH? OR SETTLEMENT?

Just like with most other chapters, you are going to be challenged to choose whether to spend Guest Race Goods on completing Research or building up the settlement.

And, just like with most other chapters, it is recommended to focus on building up the settlement first. Focus on research once your goods are being produced much more quickly and efficiently. It may feel counter-intuitive in the moment, and it can be hard to pass up making progress on research, but it is the quickest and most efficient way to complete the chapter in the long run.
