Meeting resource requirements for building, research and training in King of Avalon can be tough. One way to help is setting up one or more farm accounts. This guide explains what a farm account is and how to set it up.

King of Avalon Tips on Building a Farm Account

Tips on building a farm account.

Important: If you want to use the same device for multiple accounts, make sure that you have bound your game in the Settings - Account menu. Depending on the platform you run the game on, you can for example bind it to a facebook account. This is a good idea anyway, you do not want to lose the account you have invested time and money in just because your device gets corrupted, but essential for being able to set up other accounts on the same device.

Drawback of One Account

You will find that the resource production of your main account is quite limited. Even if you have many resource buildings all maxed out and increase your production rate with research and talent points, you will find the produced resources will not come close to meeting your requirements. There are other ways to get your resources besides resource production, such as resource gathering, but you will likely still find it tough to meet the requirements. Building one or more farm accounts can help you.

Hyper Farming

In some other games Hyper Farming is an alternative approach to tackle the resource problem. With Hyper Farming every player in an Alliance sets up his main to produce one specific resource, focusses buildings, research, commander skill points, gear as much as possible on that resource. In King of Avalon this is not really applicable, at least not to the full extend. Mostly because there is a limit to each type of resource production building, so the possibilities to specialize are limited. In addition the fact that different resources become available at different times in the game, also makes it more difficult to setup a good system.

Farm Account Concept

Conceptually a Farm Account is simply another account dedicated to the resource you need. In some other games it is better to setup a Farm account dedicated to one resource, but because of the restrictions in the number of buildings you can build of each type, in King of Avalon it is better to just focus on all resources you need in one account. If you need more resources and like the concept of Farm Accounts, you can build multiple farm accounts.

Binding Each Account

For the instructions below I assume you use binding via Facebook. If you use any other way, it will work in a similar manner. Once you have decided how much farm accounts you are going to make, you will need to make facebook accounts for all of them.

Setting Up a Farm Account

If you want to use multiple accounts on the same device, you can go to the Settings - Account menu and use the Start New Game button. Once the game starts you click through the tutorial and start building your account.

I will briefly discuss some of the items of our Beginner's Guide and indicate what you should do for each step for your farm accounts.

It might be that the alliance of your main has a dedicated farm alliance in which case it is a good idea to join this. Drawback is that it is likely not going to be very active when it comes to Helps and Gifts, but other alliances will very likely kick you when they find out you are a Farm Account and the more active an alliance is, the faster this will happen. Grouping farm accounts together has as benefit that they will not be unintentionally attacked, although it might lead to some intentional attacks, i.e. players who are not strong enough to hit your mains hitting your farms instead.

Teleporting close to your main is quite cumbersome. The beginner's teleport only allows you to port to a random location in a new kingdom. You should make sure you are in the right kingdom (it can be a coincidence, but when I made my farm account on the same device as my main it was already in the same kingdom) before you upgrade to stronghold 6 and when your account is not older than 5 days, but to get close to your main you need to become a member of the main or farm alliance and use an Alliance Teleport, or safe up Alliance Honor making donations to purchase an advanced Teleport.

Leveling up your Lord will be important to be able to assign Talent Points to the Economy category to increase the resource production rates. Since you need to max Talent projects before being able to go on to the next one, there are not so many choices to be made. Just make sure you chose the branch with production and not gathering if there is a choice.

Outside the wall you should build as many resource buildings as possible. You might build one Military Tent (required for Stronghold upgrade lvl 9) and one Hospital (required for Stronghold lvl 11). Inside the wall I suggest to at least build one of each to start. They are not all necessary, but you do get Lord EXP for each building level, so they help with upgrading your Lord.

Until Which Level to Build Farm Accounts

There is not a specific target level for a Farm account. The higher you build your account (and all Resource buildings), the more resources you will produce, but while you are building your account, you likely need all resources to build your Farm Account, so it is not producing for you yet. The level you build your account depends on you. How many time do you want to invest in building up your account, and how much patience you have before it starts producing for your main.

There are certain levels to consider. If you require Iron you need to upgrade to at least level 10, and for Silver to atleast level 15. Those levels, 10 and 15, also have the benefit of unlocking extra areas, allowing you to build more resource production buildings.

Gathering Resources

In King of Avalon the production of resources is quite slow, and to make the most of your farm you should really gather resources as well, in my opinion. This means training troops and sending them out several times a day. Not only a lot of work, but it also depends on whether your Kingdom is rather peaceful and/or has some rules in place with respect to not attacking farms, whether this is could really work out..

Getting Resources to Your Main

There are two ways to get the resources from a Farm account to your main, you attack the farm account with your main, or you transfer resources via the Trading Post from your farm to your main.

Going for the Trading Post route is not recommended. It requires you to either change your main account to the farm alliance or your farm account to the main alliance, this is cumbersome. Plus transferring resources via Trading Post, especially since your Farm account will likely not be a very high level, will be time consuming. With a Trading Post the trade in resources is taxed at a level depending on the level of your Trading Post.

If you use attack to transfer resources, your Main and Farm account need to be in different alliance (which they normally are) and your Main (and Farm) cannot have an active Peace Shield. In King of Avalon there is no tax on resources when attacking.

When you use attack for transfer and don't work on your Farm account anymore, you have to make sure that you either attack at least once every 10 hours, or go to your Farm account to harvest your resource buildings, otherwise they stop producing because the capacity is reached.

Attacking more often is recommended, because you will likely be confronted with other players that will attack your farm account(s) as well and the less they benefit from your work the better.


I hope this gives you an idea what a Farm account is, what the benefits are, and how to set one up. If you have any other suggestions or questions, please share in the comments.
