I am an Elven leader. I have picked defensive mastery for my home town and then the economy mastery for my home town. I don't remember exactly what it was called, but you have the idea now. I have asked in chat what their average resource income is. I was blown away when people claimed they have 100+ income. I don't know if that is even possible, is it? I don't know what I am doing wrong. Maybe I can steal some tips from you all!

Food income: The highest I am able to get this is about +20 income per minute. I have 15 to 20 deers and about 8 workers in total picking berry bushes.

Wood income: Only way I know how to gather wood with the Elven race is through houses and those wisps. I have about 10 wisps and I even set my houses to wood, but the highest I have ever seen was +9 income per minute. I guess it would help if the Elven houses worked in the first place, but they don't. Hopefully this will be fixed.

Stone income: I have a good 9 workers gathering stone. The highest amount I have seen is +7 income per minute.

Gold income: I have a decent gold income. Since I purchased some Unicorns, I have seen +10 to +12 income per minute.

BUT... How in the world are people getting +100 in income?! Also, I have just now started the transmuting resources, but for example say I want to transmute gold. I'll then go in the negatives in another resource. Really annoying. Tips welcomed!

with everything upgraded for wasps and 17 wasps I have an income of around 6-7 wood per second if not more.for rest you just go near your city and trade.Also the food income can be high if you make tons of deer.I don't do it because it might be laggy during sieges. As for gold I just farm maps for it.

Did you try buying cows/chickens/sheep from the nearest human town? Using human/orc vills to chop wood? Both good tips for elven eco's

Yeah well you have to traverse the world map a good bit but it does help... and those orc workers stay idle 50%+ of the time to make up for having elven overlords >< BUT they help build like you won't believe!

Lol @ GPS - yeah, we want to encourage that down the road. In the late game especially players should figure hey - I should capitalize on other races strengths. From economy to mercenaries.

wouldn't that kinda destroy the trait that makes some races unique though?

People are still having huge outputs? xD I have deleted all of my peasants to make room for more soldiers so when town PvP comes around I'm ready! I can trade/kill dragons for enough gold to buy whatever I want.

Having a few peasants to put out fires isnt a bad idea though.

I don't see how really. You still have your race characteristics and get none of the special traits of the other races. All vills gather/put out fires/loot. They just do it a little differently.

I would help, but you know how I feel about Elfs... I mean really...

So when people claim they have +100 are they lying?

I'm not sure. In the beta version i could get 1k+ stone gathering but you had to know what you were doing as elves (using only elven units)

1,000?!

The heck am I doing wrong? I know you want to transmute resources, but then I get negatives in other resources. Say I want to transmute Stone, my gold will go like -1.1 or something like that. lol

This was back before walls took crowns and treants gave HUGE bonuses to gathering.
