Tips and Tricks
You'll need wood to make most upgrades, particularly early in the game, so you should make Sawmill upgrades a priority each time they become available by updating your Headquarters.
Find wood during conquest, or you can raid other player bases for resources.
Gold is an important resource that you obtain as hourly tribute from the people who live in the islands you free from BlackGuard slavery.
Most important buildings you should keep an eye and ugrade as often as possible are Vault and Sawmill. You lose the round if the Headquarters building is destroyed. As for the Sawmill, it is required to produce wood, and most upgrades you might make require wood.
