Boosts or Boosted

When someone asks you what are your boosts or Boosted goods, here is what it means and why:

Every city has 3 types of goods they are specialized in producing.. 1 of each type will come from a different tier of good

Tier 1 aka T1 aka Basic Goods
Marble :marble:
Steel :steel:
Planks :plank:

Tier 2 aka T2 aka Crafted Goods
Crystal :crystal:
Scrolls :scroll:
Silk :silk:

Tier 3 aka T3 aka Magical Goods
Elixer :elixir:
Magic Dust :magicdust:
Gems :gem:

When you first make your city you will start off boosted in 1 of each tier, depending on where you are placed on the map.. You will need to unlock them via the tech tree to be able to produce them but that is the case for all productions.

When you are boosted in a particular good, every time you collect relics for that good you get a bonus to producing that type of good that you would not get for the other 6 types..

You can Find what your cities boosts are by looking in your Main Hall then click the relics tab which is the middle one. At the bottom of that screen you will find 1 resource from each tier listed above, and these are what your city is boosted in producing. You can also see what % boosted you are currently at and how many relics you need to gain the next +%

Your boosted goods are set for your city as soon as you created your city.. it just takes time to unlock them all..

This is also what it means when someone starts talking about Tiers of goods as shown above

Sometimes older players will refer to certain combinations of boosts by other names, which might throw further confusion into the mix

The Rock Boosts = Marble/Crystal/Gems


FYI: The order that I have the goods listed just so happens to be the order the tournament follows.




Sentient Goods

Much later in your game progression you will reach chapter 12 The Elementals where you will be introduced to sentient goods.


S1 aka T4 or T1+1 -- Researchable chapter 12
Moonstone -- (Marble)
Platinum -- (Steel)
Elven Tree Gum -- (Planks)

S2 aka T5 or T2+1 -- Researchable chapter 13
Obsidian -- (Crystal)
Arcane Ink -- (Scrolls)
Royal Velvet -- (Silk)

S3 aka T6 or T3+1 -- Researchable chapter 14
Silly Soap -- (Elixer)
Alloy Shrooms -- (Magic Dust)
Cosmic Bismuth -- (Gems)


Ok, so here is where it gets kind of confusing. Up until now you have been told either through reading the forums, by friends or via your fellowship to have only your boosted factories in your city. The +1 formula is used to figure out which sentient good you will be boosted in and which factory you will need to make to produce it.

Example Of T1+1:

If a players boosted T1 is Marble then you would add +1 to it and you would end up with Steel, which would mean you would need to build a steel factory and level it up to be able to produce your new boost Platinum. You would use the list of goods as shown in the game or as listed above.

When you level a manufactory to its max for that chapter you will loose the ability to produce 1 and 2 day productions and they will be replaced with a 3 and a 9 hour sentient good production for that type of factory..

Using the example above, if you were to level your marble factory to lv24 then you would loose the 1 and 2 day marble productions and they would be replaced with a 3 and a 9 hour Moonstone production. but you will not be boosted in Moonstone so you must weigh the value of loosing your 1 and 2 day productions for score or the increased 3 and 9 hour Marble production. You will need to make a steel factory and level it up to max to get the benefit of your S1 boost of Platinum.

Sentient goods can be traded like all other productions. Once you upgrade your trader it will add the ability to trade your sentient goods with other players.. But unlike the other tiers of goods which can only be traded to neighbors or fellowship members, Sentient goods are traded on a global scale.




Note: The next topic is not meant to Agree with or disagree with the system, but instead to explain to a new player how the system currently in place works and why, and to explain what it means when someone starts talking about 1, 2 and 3 Stars.


One Two Three Star Trades


As a new player you will hear or read about 1, 2, 3 star trades either on the forum or most likely a fellowship overview and maybe are wondering what it means

The stars are used to place a comparative value on items being offered or accepted in the trader..

1 star trade is less then an equal trade
2 star trade is an equal trade
3 star trade is more then equal trade

For new players sometimes trades look one sided but still show 2 stars saying they are equal, this is because each tier of good has different values

Each tier of good is worth more then the tier before it

Tier 1 Marble :marble: / Steel :steel: / Planks :plank:
Tier 2 Crystal :crystal: / Scrolls :scroll: / Silk :silk:
Tier 3 Elixir :elixir: / Magic Dust :magicdust: / Gems :gem:


Trading from one tier of good for another tier of good is called Cross Tier Trading

Another factor that determines the star rating is the traders fee for trading with cities you have not discovered on the map yet. The trade might have started off equal value but once the 50% trader fee is added it has dropped the trade down to a 1 star. There is no trader fee when trading within a fellowship even if you have not discovered other members cities, it is one of the benefits of joining a fellowship

The star value is automatically set by the game once you place a trade and can not be player manipulated..

This is the basics of the Star system currently in place. Some will disagree with it, but the fact is that it is the system. As a new player gains a little Elvenar experience, they should be able to determine for themselves if they think its fair or not, and be able to place their own value to the goods they trade or accept

Making Sense Of The Mess That Is In Some Cities Names

When visiting a neighbors or a fellowship members city you may see something like B/C/MH/GA in their city name, and wonder why everyone has these weird abbreviation combinations instead of actual city names, and if you just started playing Elvenar this probably seems very confusing.


To see what is available to help in another players city you must first click the 2 hands shaking at the center bottom of the game screen.. Once clicked, you will notice a bunch of helping hands start flashing over the top of certain buildings. These helping hands are letting you know that you can help that building they are over the top of.

There is only 3 types of help you can give a city:

1) You can help their Builder by clicking the Builders Hut
2) You can help the Main Hall which donates gold to them (this gold donation does not subtract from your gold)
3) You can help a Culture building which gives a small boost to that city's culture

You can only help a city once every 24 hours and only 1 of the 3 helps can be given

When a city has B/C/MH in its name, they are letting any visitor know in what order they prefer the help given them. From the list of abbreviations listed in the first post you can figure out that the city would like their B = Builder helped first then C = Culture next and the last option is the MH = Main Hall.

Some types of help are limited, like the Builders Hut can only be helped as many times as builders that player owns. If the owner of that city only has 2 builders then the Builders Hut can only be clicked twice. If other people have already visited the city before you then the Builder Hut might not be available to help.
If this is the case then you would move on to the next preferred help which in this example is Culture. Culture is limited to how many Culture buildings that city has, if a player has only a few culture buildings it may again be possible that no culture help can be given if others have visited already
If culture is not available to help, then you would move on to the Main Hall and help it. The main hall is always helpable (unlimited Help) but it does have a mechanic in place where a player can only ever collect 20 helps worth of gold, no matter if it was helped 100 times

Some players add the abbreviations of an Ancient Wonder to their cities name like in my example of B/C/MH/GA, this is letting anyone who plans to donate Knowledge Points to a Wonder in that city know which Wonder is preferred, in this case GA = Golden Abyss. You might also notice a few players with the world name or abbreviation in their city name too, this is not meant for you but instead to remind the player which world they are currently playing in.

If you visit a city with an actual name and no preferred help listed, then the owner is leaving it up to you to decide what to help, and is probably thankful for any help they can get

If a player visits your city and helps you and you in return visit them back and help them within 24 hours, you will get a small reward of supplies to go along with the gold you would normally get.

Here is a little test: C/MH/B/MM/US4 :) if you can decipher this then you are doing great


FYI:
You might also notice that a few cities have the name Sproutville or Dawnham and wonder why those names are so popular. These used to be the default names of newly created cities, all Elven cities started off as Sproutville and all Human cities started off as Dawnham.





Rune Shard and Broken Shard

These words can be very confusing, especially to a newer player since a different terminology is commonly used. I will try and clear up a little bit of the confusion that surrounds them and in the process I will also explain their use with Ancient Wonders..

Rune Shards are sometimes called Runes by players, since the word Shard implies that it has been broken already. Rune Shards are used to build Ancient Wonders and can be obtained a variety of ways via The Tournament, Chest rewards, Event rewards, Knowledge Point donations to another players Ancient Wonder to help upgrade it, finishing provinces, a few quests and through combining Broken Shards. As you can see, there is no shortage of ways to obtain them.

To build an Ancient Wonder you must first completely fill in the 9 blank slots surrounding the Rune Wheel by attempting to place your Rune Shards. As you place the Rune Shards, some will fill the spots and some will break. The Rune Shards that break turn into Broken Shards..

Broken Shards
sometimes are called Broken Runes by players, again because of the language of the name. Broken Shards can be obtained through breaking Rune Shards, the Crafter located in the Magic Academy, the Tournament and Event buildings. To use Broken Shards you must first obtain 10 of them, which you can track the progress in the same window you used to place the Rune Shards via the small bar with 10 spots on it to the right of the Rune Wheel. Or you can hover your pointer over the Ancient Wonder icon at the bottom center of the screen. Once this bar is full you can forge a rune.

There are only 3 ways to obtain specific runes that you are looking for

1) By being one of the top donators to someone else's wonder, you will receive a prize of Rune Shards specific to that wonder you donated to once its ready to upgrade

2) Wait for an Event and hope the specific Rune Shard shows up as one of the minor prizes you can win in a box


3) By Forging10 Broken Shards into a Rune Shard, but before you run off and try this, a little further explanation is required


When you forge a Rune Shard from 10 Broken Shards you are creating a Rune Shard that is guaranteed to fit in a spot on the Rune Wheel of any Ancient Wonder you Choose.. If you want to place it in a specific Ancient Wonder you must first go to that Ancient wonders Rune Wheel and Forge it there.
Example:
You just so happen to gain your 10th Broken Shard while attempting to place Ruin Shards into your Golden Abyss, But you want and need only 1 more Rune Shard for your Tome Of Secrets to be able to build it.. For this to happen you must go to the Tome Of Secrets and Forge the Broken Shards into a Rune Shard on its page, and it will automatically be deposited into the Rune Wheel

Throughout the course of the game you will collect many Rune Shards, and except for the 3 exceptions I just listed, it is totally random which Rune Shards you will get when you do get them, and you will find yourself with a surplus of Rune Shards for every Ancient Wonder. No worries though you will eventually need to use them again several times.

For every 5th upgrade of an Ancient Wonder, you will need to fill its Rune Wheel all over again

If you find yourself with a bunch of Rune Shards for an Ancient Wonder you never plan to build and wish that you could break the Rune Shards but the Rune Wheel is already full,

Here is a little tip: If you have the available room, go ahead and build it. Once built it can be sold, Once sold you will be able to fill the Rune Wheel up again and in the process create more Broken Shards.



FYI: Those Amazing eye candies you find in some players cities on the back ground hill are a byproduct of having built some select Ancient Wonders

FYI: The first Ancient Wonders were not available until the end of chapter IV, and it was not until later that they added some to earlier chapters




ORCS


Even though this word is not Abbreviated or Slang, It has caused a lot of confusion in the past as evident by the many threads on this forum with people asking for help.

There are two types of ORCS

1) One Is produced as a resource in your armory (Breeding Grounds) and is only ever used as a resource. The Orcs nest is an event building that will also produce the resource Orcs, but in both cases you must wait until you are in chapter VIII (Orcs And Goblins) before you will ever get the chance to produce them.. The Orcs Nest must be won in chapter VIII or later for it to produce Orcs.

You can also obtain Orcs through the Heroes Forge Ancient Wonder but you can not unlock that until the end of chapter VIII

From chapter VIII and forward Orcs will be used as a resource to upgrade workshops, negotiate and cater fights, a few quests and are needed to produce the 2nd type of ORC

2) The other type of ORC is produced at the Training Grounds and used to fight with, these would be Orc Warriors and Orc Strategists which consume the resource Orcs to be able to produce them. The Grounds Of The Orc Strategist is an event reward building that will produce for free Orc Strategists at any time during the game



3) Even though we only have 2 Orc types as listed above, there is one more common use of the word in which it describes chapter VIII Orcs And Goblins. Most people just say they are in the Orc chapter or they are on Orcs.


To clear up this confusion it has been suggested before that the Developers change the name of the ORC resources to maybe Goblins, Peons and a few others suggestion that were made

New Player FAQ:

1)
I have a quest/task to make a "Insert name here" but I cant find it anywhere.

Answer: All Workshops, Factories and Guest Race production buildings have named productions and this is most likely what you need to check to find and make, to finish the quest/task.

Examples: Your quest/task is to make Advance Tools or Dwarven Statue . Advanced Tools is the name of the 3 hour Workshop Production. Dwarven Statue is the name of the 2 day production in the Copper Foundry.



2) What are those buildings on the mountain in the back ground of some cities and how do I get them?

Answer: These are the product of building certain Ancient Wonders. They do nothing and are only eye candy. There are 6 Ancient Wonders that provide a building in the background of your city.



3) I have a Task/Quest to build Ancient Runes but I can not find it. I'm confused on what it is.


Answer: The Ancient Runes are an Elven Culture building that you can find page 2 of the culture building list 3rd one on the top row



4) How do I get a Blueprint?

Answer: As of now Blueprints are only available Via the 10th chest won in a tournament and you will need to be in a fellowship to compete in a tournament to be able to get one.



5) I have a building I placed and it has a red circle with a line floating above it. What does that mean?


Answer: A red circle with a line through it floating above a building means it is unpowered and not connected to the main hall Via a road. Check your roads and pay particular attention to roads that run behind buildings.



6) Is there a way to rotate buildings?

Answer: NO.
Elvenar has a certain puzzle aspect to it and you must build your city with this in mind. Every chapter, you will be able to research building upgrades that will change the sizes and facings of most of your buildings. This is one of the most asked for or suggested features of this game and the answer has always been NO.



7) Can i sell my Barracks or Magic Academy?


Answer: NO. Once placed the Barracks and Magic Academy can not be sold or teleported into your inventory. Your only option was to have never of built them in the first place, but that's a lesson learned if you ever start a new city on a different world.




8) Should I join a fellowship?


Answer: Yes. There is no good reason not to join a fellowship. Fellowships provide 24 other players to trade with no trader fees, instant access to 24 other players and their knowledge and answers to your questions via fellowship chat, Tournaments, Fellowship Adventures, Ancient Wonder support systems.. Even if you are Anti Social or a "Lone Wolf" a fellowships benefits outweigh any negative you can think of. No one says you have to chat, and with the new neighborly visit system it is quicker then ever to do fellowship visits. There are thousands of fellowships each with their own playstyle and rules. The trick is to find one that meets your needs and what you want to get out of this game. If you join a fellowship and do not like it, you can always leave it and search for another one.



9) I am in a fellowship and our Archmage is inactive, What can we do?


Answer:
2 options are available to you

1) Make a new fellowship and everyone in the old can join it
2) Contact in game support and they can help you replace your Archmage



10) I won a blueprint and i can not find it in my inventory.


Answer:
For some weird reason Elvenar does not store them in your inventory and there is only 3 ways as of now to find them.

1) By entering a Magical Workshop or Magical Residence and clicking the upgrade tab. At the bottom you will see a icon of a Blueprint as a requirement to upgrade. Hover your pointer over the icon of the Blueprint and it will show how many are available.

2) If a craft in the Magic Academy requires a Blueprint as part of the recipe, again if you hover your pointer over the icon of it, it will show you how many you have.

3) Send an in game support ticket and ask support how many Blueprints you have



11) I can not collect my "Insert name here" and it shows as grey.


Answer:
There are a few items in Elvenar that have a max capacity, such as Gold, Supplies and most Guest Race goods. If you can not collect one of these, then that means your storage capacity has been reached.



12) I have been a forum member for "X" amount of time, Why does it still show me as a new member?


Answer:
A forum members status is based off of trophy points earned and not how long they have been a forum member. If you click on your name you will see Trophy Points and if you click the number it will take you to the achievements needed to earn trophies.



13) Do i need to sell my old roads to be able to place new ones?


Answer: No,
you can build your new roads right over the top of the old ones, the game automatically removes the old roads as the new ones are placed, so the culture bonus is not accumulative.



14) I am getting ready to start a new chapter, is it ok to sell my "Insert name here"?


Answer:
Guest race production buildings are fine to sell off, but hold on to the portal, there normally is a task/quest to sell off guest race portals that awards 200 diamonds as a prize. A good practice is to fill your portal up on all the guest race goods for a final time before you sell off the guest race production buildings.



15) If I sell my guest race portal what happens to all the stuff it was storing in it?


Answer:
This is one of Elvenar weird game mechanics, once the portal is sold your inventory that was in it does not go away you just can not see how much of it you have anymore, but it is still there, its just in limbo. As of now the only way to see how much of a previous guest race goods you have left is to rebuild a past portal and check.



16) I accidently sold my "Insert name here" what can i do?


Answer:
Contact in game support.. Posting it on the forum does nothing except for another forum member to tell you to contact in game support.

I've also seen:

GR for guest race

For the AWs:

Watchtower = WT, WR
Thrones of High Men = ToHM
Mountain Halls = MH
Blooming Trader Guild = bee (because it's a giant bee)
Shrine of Shrewdy Shrooms = Shrewdy
Temple of the Toads = toads, TotT, TT
Elvenar Trade Center = ETC
Victory Springs = VS

I've seen "Towers" before and it's always confusing, I have to check the whole city to figure out if they're talking about watchtower, prosperity towers or sunset towers, at least stick a w/p/s in front, yeesh

There's so many AWs now that I try to stick with enough of the name to be clear, not everyone wants to be a walking encyclopedia of AW abbreviations

Some times people will use the first letter of a worlds name or its web address abbreviation when talking about it, or use them in their city name as a reminder to themselves which world they are currently playing on.

A World or US1 or EN1 = Arendyll
W World or US2 or EN2 = Winyandor
F World or US3 or EN3 = Felyndral
K World or US4 or EN4 = Khelonaar
E World or US5 or EN5 = Elcysandir
S World or US6 or EN6 = Sinya Arda
C World or US7 or EN7 = Ceravyn

FYI: The order that I have the worlds listed is also the order in which each world was Born.
Such a helpful, detailed guide! Thanks a million for posting it.
