This build order considers that you have 2 boars and 4 deers. You may want to change the build order a bit if you are playing Huns, Teutons, Mongols or China to take advantage of their bonuses.
- Put 2 vills on one house and 1 vill on one house. Build two houses. Use scout to find sheep. When you find sheep, send two to TC and other two to scout. [If you’re playing China (1.0c or 1.0e patch), build the house a bit later. Focus on getting enough food first].
- Once the houses are build, send these villagers to sheep.
Next few villagers go like this:
You now have 6 villagers on Sheep
- Lumber camp – > Lumberjack
- Wood [If you’re playing huns, you don’t really need 4 on wood, can do just 3]
Once the mill is built, use the villager who lured the boar and got injured to make a farm.
Again, use the injured villager to make a farm.
- Wood [Second Lumber Camp]
Use two of the hunters to make two farms. (the boar must be getting over by now)
- Wood [If you’re playing Teutons, can do with one or two less on wood].
Build a Mining Camp
Age up with 26 villagers + 1 scout.
- 10 on Wood
- 3 on Gold
- 4 on Forage
- 3 Hunters on Deer
- 4 Farmers
- 2 on Sheep
During Age up to Feudal, use one villager to build a Barracks. If required, use another villager to build a few palaside walls.
When you reach Feudal Age, use four villagers (from wood, generally) to build a Stable (or a Archery Range, if you’re going CA) and a Blacksmith (or a Market, if your team-mates aren’t great with coordination and flaring).
The new villagers in Feudal Age went to wood (the trees near the TC).
Click Castle Age and research wood-cutting and mill upgrades. After clicking castle age, your villager distribution (Total 28 villagers) should be something like:
- 8 Farmers
- 13 Lumberjacks
- 4 Miners
- 3 Foragers (These will build Farms around the mill as soon as the forages get over)
Reach Castle Age around 16:20 or so. Can make knights from one stable. This is more of a boom-y buildup. During transition, you can move a few villagers from wood to gold and go two stables instead of one.
