Coins are one of the main resources along with supplies. Coins are used for everything from recruiting armies, to buying forge points. Coins can be earned from residential buildings, from many special buildings, from Great Buildings as a reward for completing quests and from the Guild Expeditions.
Coins are mainly used for:
- Unlocking technologies
- Purchasing buildings
- Buying forge points (Note that the cost to buy 1 forge point goes up 50 coins after each purchase)
- Infiltrating enemy armies
- Scouting a province
- Fulfilling certain quests
- Negotiating in Guild Expeditions
Each residential building produce different amount of coins - some take minutes, while others can take as long as one day. The total amount of coins produced depends on how frequent the player collects from the building.
A note of interest is that the Hut (first residential building available) makes more coins than most of other buildings, but the problem is that it needs to be collected every 5 minutes.
Many special buildings produce coins. Some produce them automatically and must be collected after certain amount of time (usually 24 hours). Some special production buildings give coins as an option to be produced in a similar manner as production buildings produce supplies.
Coins can be earned from completing quests. Some quests have coins as a reward, while others have a random reward with a chance of it being coins (for example recurring quests). The coins earned from random rewards increase when the player progresses through the ages. For exact amounts see Random Quest Rewards.
Daily Challenges also have a chance of rewarding coins.
Some events have coins as one of the possible rewards.
Selling buildings will return a portion of the coins from the originally spent amount to the player.
For more information see the Coin Boost.
Players have various ways of boosting the coins production of their buildings. Boosts give a certain percent increase to the coin collection from the buildings.
Coin packages are sometimes awarded during events. The amount of coins included in every package differs with age. There are four different sizes of coin packages.
