Weapon Smithy – A good offence is the best defence

Sooner or later our prospering realm will face envious rivals and we will have to defend ourselves to protect our settlers. Good thing we now have all the ingredients ready to create strong weapons. We only need to build the mighty Weapon Smithy!

Here our expert Weapon Smiths use iron and steel bars to provide our soldiers with more advanced weapons than the Weapon Workshop can produce.

The Weapon Smithy requires the Townhall to be built (Village-Level) and can be upgrades once.

At Village-Level () 2 workers are busy forging Swords and Axes.

After upgrading it to Town-Level (), a third smith joins and the production of Lances and Hammers is unlocked.

These weapons are then transported to the Military School or the Military Academy where we can recruit new soldiers. Some of the more advanced units additionally require an armor for recruitment. More on that in a future article.

The place where coal and ore meet – the Smelting Works

It’s time to start using the resources we gathered from the mines, especially our soldiers will appreciate that: Let’s build a Smelting Works.

The Smelting Works uses Coal and Ore to produce Iron and Steel. Both are primarily used by our weapons industry to produce swords, axes and armor. However, other industries like for example our Toolmaker also requires iron and steel later on to produce the advanced tools required on Town and City Level.

The Smelting Works requires our settlement to be at Village Level () and can be upgraded once.

At Village Level (), 2 workers use 1 Coal and 1 Ore to produce Iron Bars .

At Town Level (), another smelter joins the duo. Furthermore, the workers can now also create Steel Bars using 1 Coal and 2 Ore .

The Smelting Works is essential if we want to expand our military influence or progress to better and more advanced buildings in our settlement. With limitations through available resources and transport capacity, we need to find the right balance as to where to invest them: As multiple units of resources are delivered to the Smelting Works to create one unit of iron or steel, it often makes sense to place the building close to the mining areas to reduce pressure on your transport capacities. However, if the deposits are scattered or small, a more central location for this part of our industry might be beneficial over time.
