Resources are everything in Game of War: Fire Age. You can't train your troops or be a valuable member of your alliance without being able to get an abundant quantity of resources, but even if you do manage to earn plenty of them, you'll still usually have times where your resources are lower than they could be, or you're trying to do some new research at the academy or upgrade your stronghold, only to find that your resource total is too low to get the job done. Read on to find out how to get more food, wood, iron, stone, and silver!
Having the resources that you need starts with simply building and upgrading more of your resource buildings. Build farms for food, villas for silver, iron mines for ore, quarries for stone and logging camps for wood. Build more of them, and upgrade them, in order to increase your hourly earnings. Pay special attention to food, because so much of it is consumed hourly by your troops; if you don't watch out, you might end up with a negative food income per hour.
Attacking other kingdoms is a great way to earn more silver, but usually, other empires will have their warehouses upgraded so high that it's impossible to earn any of the other four resources from them. Instead, occupy various NPC areas that contain resources. Forts contain silver, quarries contain rocks, farms contain food, camps contain wood, and mines contain ore. The higher the level, the more resources that they contain (they are not guarded by troops), and the more troops that you send over, the more resources that they can carry back to your empire.
Tap on the treasure chests in the lower left corner as often as possible, and play the casino as often as possible, for chances to earn more resources. Once you earn resources, they will show up in your "Items" folder under the "my items" tab. Use them whenever you need them.
Of course, complete quests as often as possible in order to claim and earn large amounts of resources from the rewards. Each time you complete a stronghold upgrade, you'll earn a treasure chest, which will contain resources, among many other treasures.
You can spend gold directly on resources in the store tab, if you so choose to. Also, once you buy the marketplace, you can request resources from your alliance teammates, or send resources to other teammates who request it.
Use the academy to research new technologies to speed up resource earnings, or use your hero's skill points to upgrade resource accumulation. Or under "boosts", you can boost your hourly income of any one of the resources. The Gatherer boost will increase the speed at which you can raid a resource producing tile (such as a fort) on the map.
One of the great benefits of being in an alliance is the ability to get alliance gifts. These are gifts that are sent to every single member of the alliance every time someone buys a gold package – and many times, this will include resource bonuses, or if you're lucky, even resource boost bonuses. Plus, you can buy resource boosts from the alliance store using loyalty points, or if you're the alliance leader, using alliance points. If you are not the alliance leader, you can put a star next to what you want in the alliance catalog to throw a vote in and try to convince the leader to purchase it.
To ratchet up the prize quantity in the casino, you can pay some gold to switch to the high roller mode. High roller mode boosts the size of your prizes, as well as increases the chances of getting hefty resource prizes. In addition, if you are in VIP mode, you will receive an automatic boost to all of your resources.
One of the big draws about Game of War: Fire Age, is that it has a translation system built into the software that automatically translates other languages to the game language of your choice. Go to the menu and hit "Correct to earn", and you can earn free resources by helping fix the translator's errors or unknowns, and not only will you improve the quality of the game's translation, you'll also have a chance to earn free resources (and other goods) for participating.
