gold on 3.11?

[Post New]by Yetses on Sep 8, 10 8:20 AM
Is it possible to get gold on this level? There is no mine/market and I need so much gold for the boulders and sand. I could barely pass the level by having one worker continously grabbing the gold that showed up, but had to wait significant periods of time before that happened. How can I then get gold, is it just random luck?
that walkthrough still sucks..hope they'll improve it

Yes it's possible and no, it's not random luck!

You need to generate lots of gold as you point out and with no mine or market you have to rely on the repeating bonus golds and I exclusively used the Renew Resources Faster bonus after initial set up.

The order I did things in is (with the additional worker bonus until the repeating gold bonuses are exposed)

Sawmill
Dune to get at the wood
Fisherman's Hut
Sawmill Upgrade
2 x Wells to speed everything up (not the one that costs 10 wood yet)
Barracks
Bottom Right Golem
Bottom Right Sawmill
Top Golem Right of the Bridge
Top Right Bridge
Top Fisherman's Hut

Now keep using the Renew Resources Faster bonus to generate gold and when you have enough, start on the rocks. It's crucial that you don't use the gold for anything else at this stage, i.e the sand dunes across the middle or any roses.

In parallel, create the top path to the roses and upgrade to get extra workers but always collect the gold.

Create the path to the 2 golds at the bottom as both these repeat.

Create the path to the bottom rose.

Clear the Golem and build the bridge.

Clear the centre path through the dunes and finally get all the roses and the potion.

That should do it.

FINALLY!!

After trying this for a couple of days - at least it wasn't as bad as 3.8, which took me 3 days to get to gold!! - this level took "only" 2 days.

Thanks, Rico.
