My personal first method to make gold is:
(having silo and farms at max level) wait that silo and farms are full of bread (you should have 800 bread stocked with other 800 bread in farms);
search people over 300k and i attack them until my farms and silo are empty;
after you have no food to make at least 1 raid, activate the gold shield (3h free);
return before 3h and collect again the food;
repeat step 2.
My personal “alternative” and a bit more addictive to make gold is:
start to make gold 5 hours before you finished the league ( you have to stay in league with a right position where you will earn lot of gems over 20) (in this case you’ll use league only for gold problem and not for personal “hunting gems”)
do step 2-3 like the first method (probably you’ll spent 1 hour to use all bread to doing raids) so wait 3 hr free of gold shield, (and are gone 4 hours -> remain only 1 hour to do all raids before league finish) and as you waited 3hr your farms are again full so you can do the other last raids.
It’s not finished here, now that the league is going to finish after you’ll collect that gems use them to buy 3hr shield (20gems), a very low price that allow you to wait other 3 hr that farms are full again and finally you can repeat step 2.
First method allow you, at the end, to do around 12 raids (yes 12 raids because you use a total of 1600 bread to do the first raids - see point 1 of first method)
Second method allow you to do around 16 raids with an extra incentive of 20 gems.
These are the main things i do (especially the first) when i need lot of gold !
Also a video in my channel ( How to be a Gold Predator) show exactly the method !
Also i saw that around the forums there are few other topics about getting gold with cool explanations like you also wrote !
I wanna add that selling items is yes a nice option to get gold, but it’s not this big fanatic thing that i would follow… (so only if you need like 100K-150K)
Also having taverns at max help you a lot but are not the same thing to do raid because once you collect gold from them, you collected… you need to wait 2 days before get again all other gold again from them, that it’s a bit boring and not a fast way.
How to have a starting turbo gold ! (this is how i call it)
- Before doing first method don’t worry if people stole gold, but hours before do some raids at least to reach a total of 2M gold around or so;
- Then do the same process i listed at the top.
- With this method you can lose gold if players attack you, but it’s not like starting from start with very few gold !
So personally i think the first method i listed it’s the most useful for now, unless someone else have more ideas.
