BUILDING /  CONSTRUCTION

There are a number of buildings in Evony : The Kings Return that are very useful to you. To get the most out of developing your castle, it is beneficial to understand each one. So take a look and who knows what you may discover.

Construction of Your Castle

If you hadn't already figured out, construction of your castle is an important component of this game. You need to be able to manage this aspect to get the full benefits of being an active member of an alliance and on the server.

 

Below is a list of the various types of buildings available within your castle. I have included the in-city subordinate city, because although any construction that occurs there is automatic, there are a couple of notes relevant to this structure that may be of interest and use to you. I have also included the in-city resource tiles (you can also get information about these in the 'Resource Tiles' section of the Evony Basics Topic). Click on the image or name if you want more information about a specific building. Please note that the images are of my castle buildings (Japanese culture, level 27) and so will likely not match the image of the buildings in your own castle.

In-city Structures/Buildings

There are 26 in-city structures, not including the 4 types of resource tiles you can build within your castle. Ideal practise is to build all to the same level before upgrading your keep, however I cannot profess to obeying that rule myself as I do get impatient to grow and try and keep up with my alliance members.

It is also important to note that while there is no strict order to the building constructions, no building can be a higher level than the keep and there are a number of buildings that are linked, for example the market place and embassy (you cannot upgrade the embassy until the market place has been upgraded). I like to upgrade my wall straight after my keep, as it is the main defence of the castle and you are potentially at the weakest stage of your development compared to other castles at the same keep level. The academy is a very worthwhile investment early on in your upgrades to ensure you are maximising your research options. If you are an attacking player, it is also useful to upgrade your watchtower early on.

Keep
Essentially the Keep is the control centre of the castle. It is the most important and biggest of the buildings within your castle walls. It not only determines the level of all other buildings in your castle, but is also the source of your in-city gold, castle buffs and castle decorations. It is also the place where you can change your cities culture. When you tap on your Keep, a menu will appear with several options. The Upgrade option ... The Detail option ... The Levy option ... The City Buff option ... The Duty option ... The Culture Feature option ... and The Decorate option ...
The keep is available from the very start of your journey with Evony. Along with your wall, it is the first building within your castle you are able to upgrade and all subsequent construction and development is highly reliant on the level of your Keep. You will only be able to have one Keep in your castle.

Building Power Levels

Upgrading your buildings is a great way to upgrade your own monarch power, especially during the 'Power Increase' and 'City Development' challenges of the Monarch Competition (refer to the Events topic from the home page for more information about the Monarch Competition). Naturally, not all buildings are created equal, and some will provide you with more power than others at different levels, so I have compiled the below table to help guide you with what building upgrade will give you the most power (but don't forget to consider the resources and time required to do the build if you are aiming to win these particular challenges).

Building Resource Requirements

All buildings require resources to be upgraded, and the resource requirements increase with each level. But there are often not just resource requirements, sometimes there are also other tasks or building levels that are necessary for the upgrades to occur. At the moment I only have the complete details for the Keep, but I will work on compiling the other buildings. I have NOT included any build times as this is greatly influenced by Monarch gear, research, VIP status and the presence (or not) or a keep duty general.
