It’s one of the biggest obstacles to growing your city, but the struggle is defeatable. Find out some hints and tips for how to gain iron before unlocking the Iron Mine.
Me, myself and I-ron
Once your Headquarters reach level nine you will unlock the Iron Warehouse which can be used to store the iron resource. Iron is used to for constructing new buildings and for upgrading many of the existing buildings in your city once they reach a higher level.
Upgrading your Iron Warehouse will increase the amount of iron that you can store at any one time and will be vital once the buildings in your city require more iron to be improved.
Despite many buildings requiring iron to be upgraded at this point in the game, such as the Caravan, Headquarters, and even to construct the Iron Mine itself once you reach HQ level 10, there are still many options for you to collect iron without having built the Mine. It’s time to upgrade your strategy.
May the iron odds be ever in your favour
The best place to start on your mission to find iron is the world map.
This is the perfect excuse to give the Gods the show they’ve been waiting for. Get your gladiators in gear by filling their training, forging their mighty weapons, and levelling them to become the mightiest gladiators around.
All of this grinding will pay off once you manage to reach the dusty but deadly White Desert. Starting at mission 62, you will earn iron as part of your rewards for gaining success and glory by completing a mission.
The glory and iron rewards that come from successful missions are not the only ways to be victorious at this level.
After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to nine chests and will receive the mysterious but valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with iron to help you develop your city.
You can also hunt for iron from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of iron!
A city of iron
Developing and growing your city is vital to the best tactics of locating stone and progressing in the game.
By upgrading and constructing more buildings in your city, you will gain experience points after each construction is complete.
This will contribute to your city’s experience and once you have received enough experience points your city will level up.
Once your city levels up you will be rewarded for your hard work and incredible city growth with a selection of fantastic rewards, and once you reach level 20 you will start to receive iron for levelling up.
Diamonds are forever
If the painfully long challenge of grinding the game to find iron seems like too much of a tactical effort for your impatient gladiadors, have no fear!
You don’t have to wait to gain iron through chests and rewards to upgrade your buildings if you want to progress faster and with less grinding.
Using gems to pay for the resources you don’t have is a great way to accelerate your city development progress until you eventually unlock the Iron Mine at Headquarters level 10.
You can receive gems for free from chest prizes, free chests around the world map, as well as through combat victory and city levelling.
So it’s time to brush up on your combat strategy, plan your city development tactics, and get ready for the gladiator treasure challenge of finding that mighty iron resource.
