Keep reading below for all the best Evony Tips.

Link your Evony Account

This should be the first thing you do. Linking your account ensures that you can log in across devices and will not lose your account if you change your phone. To do think go to Settings -> Account -> Link Account.

Always Keep your Bubble

Keep your Evony Bubble always

The fastest way to lose all your progress is by getting attacked and having all your troops killed and resources stolen. To avoid this, always keep your bubble active. Only ever drop it when you are sure you will not be attacked or have protected your troops and resources.

Create an Alt Account

This will help you progress much quicker. You can funnel resources straight back to your main account to give your Keep that needed resource boost. See our Evony Alt Account Guide to learn how to set one up.

Play Evony on your PC or Mac

You can use BlueStacks to play Evony on your PC or Mac. This allows you to easily manage several accounts at once. This is particularly useful if you are also running alt accounts to support your main account.

Patrol Regularly

The Patrol function on your castle Walls is one of the best ways to pick up Monarch Equipment. It is very cheap to refresh at only 10K gold and costs just 30 Gems to keep an item. Therefore, it is possible to pick up Level 3 equipment for just 30 Gems.

Join an Alliance

It is vital to join an alliance on day one. You get a boost from alliance research, can join alliance rallies against tough boss monsters for better rewards, and can take part in numerous other highly rewarding events. This includes events such as Hydra Invasion and Server War.

Level your Evony Keep Fast

It is important to get your keep level up fast and early. This will let you build higher-level troops which will be vital for PvP and for hitting higher-level bosses for better rewards. Getting a head start on other players will also help you get the better Subordinate Cities before anyone else.

Get a Portable Charger

Evony is a great game but will use a lot of your Cell Phone’s battery. Getting a portable charger will ensure this is no longer a problem. Check out our list of the Best Cell Phone Power Banks for Gaming.

Research, Research, Research

Keep your Evony Research going at the Academy Building

Research is hugely important in Evony. Concentrate early on resource gathering speed, construction speed, and research speed. All are vital for fast growth. You can then move on to a more military focus.

Don’t Waste Resources

It can be tempting to build a lot of low-level troops early on. Don’t waste your time or resources! These troops are easily killed and do very little damage. Start pumping them out in volume once you can build level 11 or 12 troops.

Get Queen Jindeok

Spend Wisely

If you decide to spend money on Evony, make sure you do it wisely as the cost can add up very quickly. For example, only ever buy the big value packs when you have a double coupon and focus on the event packages that offer the best value. Don’t buy for resources or speedups as these can be easily looted from monsters.

However, perhaps the most important thing you can do when spending money is to ensure that you are buying your Evony packs at a discount. You can easily save up to 20% on every purchase in the game. Read our full guide on How to Get Discounted Packs in Evony for more details.
