I’ve been following Mechs guide since level 1. Followed it to the letter. I’m now 84.5 and need to get to 85. However, all of my Long Island towers require 422,000 lumber to upgrade but I can only hold 420,000. And I can’t uograde storage again until 85.
Have I missed something? Any suggestions on how to get to 85? And any suggestions on base?
Understood. In your opinion would the net DPS output be worth shelving the archer? I currently have zero towers in storage. I started this account with the intent of minimizing that and building the strongest base possible (learned this the hard way lol).
I think, if he hasn’t started building a second flak, electro flak seems almost strictly better than fire. (More normal damage, supershot does a lot more damage, and it buffs the dark.) Only trade offs are that you don’t get the damage reduction supershot or the explosion.
e: Though a case can be made for either, I don’t claim to have the meta fully solved and optimized, one day after electro flak release. In his shoes, I’d probably save the embers for a month until people have figured it out.
Mechengg wrote some thoughts on this here, a while ago:
And also wrote a few follow up posts with his reasoning, a little bit after that one.
My thoughts: Tanok means everyone should really, really have a perch. The construction time reduction bonus, despite being insultingly low, is still better than nothing and 100% worth having, so, yeah, definitely get a perch for him, and upgrade it as much as you can until level it’s 30. (It’ll save you 10-40d per fort event, depending on how much research you’ve done and how many speedups you spend.) They also help in feeding events.
