On the left side of your screen there is a panel and there are many sections in it. The first section is the city overview (we will talk more about this later). Below it there is a messages section. It's you personal inbox where you can send or receive messages. Below it is the reports section where you can see reports of attacks. Below it there is the Alliance section. In here you can check announcements,alliance members,recent alliance events (promotion,invitations),alliance properties,Banner,pacts,reservations. Below it is the alliance forum. This is a very important section be sure to check this or the founder will kick you out of the alliance for not being active in the forums. Below the alliance forums section there is the Rankings,profile,Forum (external grepolis forum),invite friends,chat (not important).On the right side there is settings,toggle audio,help and log out.
A- City overview
This overview shows your city's current condition. In here you can check other overviews such as:
In here you can construct or demolish buildings. Some buildings are greyed out because you haven't reached the minimum requirements to get them.
In here you can see your farm's level or enlist militia (more on militia later). You get 10 militia for every farm level and 15 militia per farm level if you have researched city guard.
A place where you can make units. Some units cannot be built since you either don't have the population for them, haven't researched them, your barracks' level isn't high enough in levels or you don't have the resources for them. Myth units are made here too.
A place where ships can be made. It's like the barracks so I won't discuss it further. A CS (colony ship) is built here.
A place where you can research technologies that need research points. These research points can be gained by upgrading the academy. There is a limit to research points and using them the most efficient way will be discussed later.
In here you can see how many troops you lost or killed while attacking or defending.
A place where you can store silver that can be used on spy missions (more on this later).
It's the building in which you can increase your cultural level by doing a city festival or a theater play (costs resources), Olympic games (costs 50 gold), and a victory procession (for a cost of 300 battle points). It's also the place where you can see your troops who are outside your city or soldiers that are defending your city. From here you can call them back or send defending units back to their respective cities. There is also a handy tool called the simulator where you can simulate a battle and see if you will turn out victorious or not.
This is the place where you can choose which god to worship.
From here you can accept trade offers or you can put trade offers for others to see. Note: You need the market to be above level 5 to be able to trade for gold.
How to attack:
-Click the city you want to attack.
-Select the 2 swords icon.
-Select how many units you want to include in your wave.
1) Your attack can be a regular attack or Breakthrough attack (more on breakthrough later).
2) You won't be able to attack someone if you:
-Haven't included the minimum required ratio in the attack (a percentage of your total troop count)
-Target is in vacation mode.
-Target is banned with a non attack able ban (not an attack able ban).
-The city belongs to you.
3) It's wise to spy someone before attacking.
Now that you have silver in your cave you have the ability to spy! Go to the city you want to spy and click it, click the espionage icon and a box will appear and in it put how much silver you want to use (minimum is 1000 silver however 1001 silver is the best quantity to send. Always add 1 more silver in your spy attempts just in case the target has the same amount of silver you have). A spy will take time to arrive and once he arrives a report will be shown on whether he was successful or not (reports will show the amount of troops,building level,and resources in the city).
Someone is attacking you??? Don't panic! This is the most efficient way to deal with people who attack a lot (Defense for non-CS attacks):
-Send all your troops away from your city.
-Spend all your resources.
-Ask for help in the forum to ATTACK the attacker (sending defense to the attacked city is what the attacker wants which is more battle points. Attacking his city though might get catch his city undefended and might clear him out, so the best defense is a good counter attack).
That's it you now know the basics of grepolis!
