Has the black tower really fallen from grace to this extent?

And here I am putting up those shrines like crazy... At this stage of the game, I'll pretty much take anything that produces forge points.
If you are able find a GBG Diamond league guild with open membership and join. Even if you have no attack bonus, you can negotiate in the GBG possibly even at reduced or no attrition at all. You will win 10 forge points there quite often, I've topped 1000 forge points in one extraordinary battlegrounds session with no attrition sectors not to mention the 25 diamonds you will win on rare occasion.

I do get quite a few FPs from GBG (although nowhere near 1,000 in one session), but those GBs are a lot of mouths to feed. Since mines are all around Level 10 right now, they are going to need to be fed for a long, long time to come. So FPs to me is like cash to a mother of seven kids under the age of 10--you can never have enough. :D
 
One I just noticed is the old Christmas Village set. Remember that one? The Toymaker's Booth, the Moose Meadow, Madame Fortuna's Tent, Candlemaker's Tent, Sugar Baker's Booth, Smorgasbord Feast, Halmbock. One of each is 26 spaces, more than a 5x5, and three of them need road connections. And all that gives 5 FPs, 10-13 goods, coins, supplies, happiness, medals.

These will be the next buildings I remove from my city. The only question is, do I just delete them, or use my Store Buildings and sell them in the AD?
You can make a 3x3 with 6-ATK, 2-DEF, no road. That’s not bad ATK and the no road makes it a winner:

Hambock x 2
Smorgasbord Feast
Candlemaker's Tent
Straw Star Tent

(A 3x4 6-ATK, 10-DEF, no road is also an option. Just add another SF and another SST.)

Or just
There are so many special buildings from Events now, and always new ones coming out. Many of which gives better rewards than past favorites. Some like SoKs, are still of value in lower age cities. Even WWs and FoYs are great for diamond farms, but not for your main city. I suppose what is worth building is down to individual requirements. My problem is that I have an inventory full of parts of old favorites (especially those that give a military (A/D) boost for attacking armies). And I cannot decide which should be better going to the AD or which are still worth buying the upgrades for to finish them off and build them.
become a professional hoarder. Bump getting rid of old favorites

What? Shrine of knowledge seems AMAZING . How could it no longer be as good?
Because:
(1) a new player doesn't need efficiency: they need to fill as much space as possible with as much FP -or- Attack stat as fast as they can to speed up their progress.
(2) by the time efficiency becomes a concern you'll be wanting to go for Multi Level buildings which are far more efficient than SoKs

Average Daily Specials per event: 10
Halloween:
Dark Doorway. You could get 30 FPs from 10 Doorways instead of 10 from SoKs
Soccer Event: Hippodrome. 2 FPs per middle track. Don't worry about Lvl'ing the main building until later on. Just get two Lvl 1 end pieces and fill up with middle tracks, 16 FPs right there
Forge Bowl: Terracotta Vineyard. Get the Diamond Coach to double your Daily Specials. 1-2 base buildings plus +/- 20 Lavender chain attachments would make 80 FPs in a single event
Summer Event: Get the Pirate Hideout + as many Fisherman's Pier as you can manage to get. If you got 9 chain attachments + 1 base building next year that's 36 FPs
Fall Event: Harvest Barn Set. Get the fields pieces and place down a combination of Wheat Field + Begonia Bench + Autumn Scarecrow + Ochre Field. 7 pieces would provide 10 FPs plus goods and attacking boosts.

Winter Event: Train + 9 cars would provide 18 FPs
St. Patricks: Moot point, different system

Wildlife Event + Spring Event + Archeology: If you look through the main buildings each year, you'd get just as many FPs going for the last main building offered as you would going for SoKs. Those main buildings like the Ferris Wheel and Eagle Mountain etc would then also provide other bonuses in addition to FPs

Oh yeah. Log cabin. You could get a Log cabin in Wildlife which is essentially the same as Dark Doorway but with a added supply boost


If you get a SoK, do use it if you have the space to do so and you're not sacrificing something better to put it down. You're going to get Shrine of Knowledge through Grand Prizes just by completing the event and aiming for everything else anyway
