If you are wondering what a Forge of empires blueprint is, what it does and how to get them; then you’ve come to the right place!
This article follows our other Great Buildings article in our series: 5 Methods to Level up Great Buildings.
Lets Recap, What are Great Buildings and What does a Forge of Empires Blueprint Do?
Great Buildings are an essential component of Forge of Empires Gameplay – building them will provide powerful benefits to the player that decides to invest in them.
But there are limitations – each Age provides only two Great Buildings (with the exception of Arctic Future).
Each building will provide its own unique bonus, graphic, but will require a certain amount of space to build.
Contrasting conventional buildings, these require only coins/supplies, Great Buildings have additional requirements.
These are goods and blueprints, and must be collected before the Great Building can be constructed.
Once the Great Building’s requirements have been met and the foundation has been laid, it will be begin at level 0 and must be “leveled” to level 1 before the player starts to receive any benefit.
For Great Buildings to gain levels, forge points must be invested into them. For each level gained, the inherent bonus of that Great Building increases as well as the rewards paid.
Once level 10 is reached, the Great Building will no longer advance until a full set of blueprints are traded.
At this point, a single level will be unlocked; this must be done for each level past 10.
Onto the Tips.
Want to be a master of Forge of Empires Great Buildings and have countless Blueprints? below we list the 11 best Forge of Empires Blueprint tips- become the best Blueprint hunter.
Read this article to the end and I`ll reveal the best Blueprint tip there is!
