Update to 0.22 - Great Buildings


Hello Kings and Queens,

A Grand and age-changing feature is at hand. With the 0.22 Forge of empires version, that will be implemented on November 28th, comes a long awaited feature: The Great buildings! This feature is accompanied by many bug-fixes and other great features. Please read on for more details. May your plunders be fruitful and your guild members loyal!

New feature: Great buildings

The Great building are a new and exiting feature which allow players to aid their friends and guild members in constructing unique buildings with powerful bonuses. Each Age offers 2 Great buildings the players can erect. Each Great building has 10 levels. The higher the level, the more powerful the Great building bonus becomes. Before you can build a great building you will first have to acquire the 9 separate blueprints.

Example: Colosseum - Iron Age

Blueprints can be acquired through the following actions:
- When a player does a positive social interaction (polishing, motivating), he has a chance to find a blueprint of one of the Great Buildings belonging to the age of the building he just polished.
- When a player plunders a building, via attacking another player, he has a chance to find a BP of one of the Great Buildings belonging to the age of the building he just plundered (lower BP find chance rate than motivating/polishing).
- Players can purchase any specific blueprint they are missing for a Great Building with diamonds (see Construction Screen).
- If a player helps other players constructing a Great Building, he/she can receive blueprints at the end construction phase of this building.

All Blueprints can be viewed in the inventory menu which is located at the bottom left orange "inventory" icon of the screen. (click on the spoiler below)
This is also where you can build the Great buildings.

To help construct a great building, simply visit a city in which a Great building construction is present and click on the Great building. You may now donate Forge points, and also view which reward you will receive for your current donations. Players who have great buildings have a "castle" icon on the social menu:

You can receive bonuses for the help you provide during the construction process.

Have fun exploring and constructing the new feature!
