The Sage Tower acts as the event center of your cities. Uniting your cities, only one center can be constructed, serving all your four or five cities. Items won in special events can be exchanged in the Sage Tower, while other items such as gear and Gems can be exchanged for materials acquired in campaign primarily. As there are a large number of Sage Tower trades, this articles is meant to give an overview of these for less-experienced players.
As proposed earlier, I have put this subject in a separate article, to keep the information on both Gem mining and Embedding separated and thus hopefully easier to comprehend. The main purpose of mining in Kingdoms of Middle Earth is to acquire the Gem Shards needed to make the Gems used for embedding in gear.
Here I will give an overview of the things necessary to find the mines on the map, mine them successfully for Gem Shards, and other possible benefits from mining. To mine we need to know the following things:
- What is Mining exactly?
- What types of Mines are there?
- How do you find Mines?
- Watch Tower
- Search Results
- How do you start mining?
- Attacking a Mine
- Mining progress and report
- Reinforcing a Mine
- Gem Pouch research
- What are the possible drops?
- Defending Mines
- Use in TKing
- Alliance agreements
Another addition to the beginners articles; in this article are listed virtually ALL in-game items you will encounter playing Kingdoms of Middle Earth. From chests, to Hero’s Glory, and from Hobbit building crew to Rune of Fury, this list gives an extensive overview of the items you use in the game, what they do exactly, and what they cost if you want to buy them in the shop (provided of course the item is for sale). Items are listed in the categories: Battle, XP, Campaign, Hourglasses, Chests, Construction and Resources, Tournaments and Various . Hop on in!
With the new update to the game, 4th cities can be runecrafted, and runecrafting up to level *11 is finally possible, although a pain in the ass. Just think about the number of Hobbit Runecrafters you need to to be able to train all Tier 4 units and then think about how available these things are to get your hands on. But I think it is a great time to go over the topic of forging runes, the runes you need to get to level *10 in the first place.
So where do you get these runes? What do you use them for, and how? Which trade from the Sage tower is most profitable? And how many do you need to upgrade your buildings. In this post, I will try to combine all available information on the topic.
