I won a Hobbit Building Crew and and trying to decide how best to use it. Have read various opinions on this Forum already.
I'm not a warrior, so don't attack other cities or wilds. I do attack Goblin camps when I require gold, but am now at the stage where my Research levels are reaching 9 and it's very hard to get enough gold with the might I have (slightly less than 400,000). I do not have a Second City and I do not Buy Mithril.
From what I've read, the Academy is recommended first, but I've seen the amount of gold required to research Level 10 and it's impossible to get. I can't seem to find out what the benefits of Level 10 Research is anyway.
Second one is the Keep, which I am leaning towards. Says at Level 10 you can build Level 10 homes. Would you still need a Hobbit Building Crew for those or is it automatic?
Thanks for any advice.
