When to Buy Hammers: A Resource for Highly Active Farmers

When to Buy Hammers: A Resource for Highly Active Farmers


I’m sure plenty of others have already done this math, but figured it might be helpful to someone. By “highly active,” I mean players who farm enough that resources are no longer a real concern in progress – builder and lab time are the only serious limitations. While the saving of resources is not an important factor of hammers for these players, it can still be advantageous to purchase a hammer rather than a respective spell if the upgrade it is going to be used on takes enough time.

# Hammer of Fighting & Hammer of Spells

Research Potions cost 20 medals and cut 23 hours of lab time. As both of these hammers cost 120 medals, the hammers are a better purchase than the potion so long as they are used on an upgrade that takes at least 5 days and 18 hours.

5d 18h | 5d 18h

# Hammer of Building & Hammer of Heroes

Builder Potions cost 30 medals and cut 9 hours of builder time per builder, so the value of the potion varies between players. The Hammer of Building costs 120 medals and the Hammer of Heroes costs 165 medals. As such, the minimum upgrade time for a building or hero necessary to make it a better value to purchase a hammer instead of the potion can be found in this table:

# of Builders | Hammer of Building | Hammer of Heroes
—|—|—-
1 | 1d 12h | 2d 1h 30m
2 | 3d | 4d 3h
3 | 4d 12h | 6d 4h 30m
4 | 6d | *8d 6h*
5 | 7d 12h | *10d 7h 30m*
6 | 9d | *12d 9h*

As the longest hero upgrade time is eight days, the Hammer of Heroes is not advisable for highly active farmers with four or more builders.
