CastleVille Legends comes from the mobile game master at Zynga. This kingdom builder comes packed with everything you've come to recognize in medieval-themed games - wizards, legendary heroes, forts and plenty of kingdom upgrading.
Your kingdom should thrive and be the best in CastleVille Legends' large player community. With our top 10 tips/tricks/cheats guide, your road to kingdom nirvana will be paved with even more gold and crowns.
This is the essential CastleVille Legends guide for you!
1. Make Your Way to Level 5 ASAP
Upgrade yourself to level 5 as quickly as possible. As soon as you hit that magic level, your selling and trade options will widen a bit. The Sea Trading ship will unlock and let you sell items to friends and even non-friends through Facebook. The items you sell will now have your own custom prices, since you now have the option of setting the cost yourself. There's a limit to how high you can set the price, but it's good to know you can sell your items at any price. The option to buy other items from friends also opens up.
2. The Food Chain System Will Fill Your Pockets
Most of the food items you can obtain and sell in the game usually operate in a food chain ecosystem. The same life-cycle that applies to real life growing, buying and selling applies here as well. The apples you end up growing can be sold or mashed into applesauce for even more sales. Taking care of cows and chickens leads to the production of milk and eggs, respectively. Once you have those milk/eggs in tow, you can sell those off too. Your CastleVille kingdom will thrive if you know how to work the ecosystem.
3. Buy Low, Sell High
Whenever you start getting into the buying/selling business aspects of the game, remember this - buy low, sell high. Buy items from your friends and the game's NPC's when their items come at a discount. Once you purchase those low cost items, you can go ahead and sell them at a premium price. You should also go about creating your own custom items and selling them off. Small investments will lead to a larger income over time.
4. Hit Up The Wizard to Figure Out Your Next Move
WriterParty.com advised players to speak with the wizard to find out what's next on their to-do list:
Lost and can’t figure out what to do? You can always go back to the home of the wizard and tap on the home (or the wizard himself) to see what quest is next. Tap on each of the individual tasks, and the game will tell you exactly where to find, buy or craft the item that you need, and what you need in order to craft the specific item.
5. Make Sure Myra Has the Right Requests for You
Myra's the one lady in the game who'll throw some sale requests at you. Myra's market will tasks you with selling her up to 6 items from your inventory. Once you sell her a specific item, her item request will change. If you're not happy with the request she gives you, just delete it and another request will come up after 10 minutes. Just take part in improving your kingdom to past the time and get a new item request when the time delay comes to a close.
6. Go Ahead and Use That Good 'Ol iPhone Time Trick
Players who're playing the game on their Apple devices know that the old time trick is great for their games. This time trick can be taken advantage of for CastleVille Legends, too. When you're in a rush to complete the constructing jobs for buildings or looking to get a new item sale request from Myra, change the time ahead on your mobile device. Go back into the game, see that the job's done and then set you time back to normal. Go ahead and cheat a lil'...
7. Leveling Up Unlocks New Buildings
Leveling up your kingdom leads to new buildings that can be planted in your kingdom. For example, check out the list below to find out which workshops you can unlock at different levels:
- Level 7: Dairy Barn Workshop
- Level 9: Jeweler Workshop
- Level 12: Tailor Workshop
8. Keep Your Heroes Stocked with Lanterns
Finding other hero characters in the game means you'll have access to explore dungeons and ancient buildings. Keep your heroes stocked with a good amount of torches so they'll always be ready to explore as much as possible. Your heroes will come back with a good amount of experience thanks to their longer journeys outside your kingdom.
9. Here's How to Pick Up Some Free Coins
WriterParty.com provided some substantial info on what it takes to earn free coins:
One way to earn more coins, which is the first method that you learn in CastleVille Legends, is to craft, grow, or create items, and then sell them to Myra. She is in the market for only certain items at a time, but it is best to keep a large stash of items on you in order to have a lot of items to sell her. She will pay you market price for items.
Once you get to level five, you will be able to use Sea Trading to sell items to your friends, and to random people on Facebook. You will be able to choose the price on the items that you ship, meaning that you can make a bigger profit if you are willing to wait a bit longer for people to buy your goods.
In fact, you can buy low and sell high in Sea Trading. There is a limit as to how much profit you can make because there is a limit as to how far above or below market value that the items can be set at, but if you buy low, then sell high, then you can make an easy profit (although not a big a profit as crafting a product, then selling it).
10. And Here's How to Collect Some Free Crowns
WriterParty.com also notes what it takes to place a few extra crowns in your collection:
You can earn coins by completing quests, as well, or by having your heroes explore the ancient buildings. Your main free way to earn crowns is to open treasure chests. Every so often, at random times, when you open a treasure chest you will earn free crowns.
Other than that, you have to buy crowns in order to get them, since this is the premium item of CastleVille Legends, although oftentimes, you can earn crowns from some of the quests.
