Alliance Quests

Can someone explain how the hell can one player complete these alliance quests? The quests are nearly impossible. And if i complete one of these super hard ones i get only 13 Alliance-Points. This is truely a pain in ass.

Some players told me to get epic items like in the Shop, but one item costs around 250.000 coins or more....

I am asking if i can buy or earn coins more faster?
And my second question: Do i need the alliance quests for any achievements?
I only klick sabotage and i got 10 IPs the next day, but i really don't understand the sense of this feature..

I wish I even knew what those were! My game always crashes for no reason so I don't even bother playing anymore in fear it may break my PC.

There are a lot of items you can get from the trade channel that should help without making you spend too much. I didn't bother with alliance or legendary quests until a few weeks ago so I never really had much to spend either.

All of these items are worth 1k-1.5k coin at their highest levels:

The Indomitable Shield Wall - 82.4% health
Athena's Blessed Tunic of Defense - 82.4% health
Hephaestus Carved Plating - 82.4% health
Heavy Anubite Armor - 82.4% health
Hero's Bow of Apollo - 57.1% damage
Athena's Graceful Arrows - 16.4% damage

As far as I know, these items all have the highest pure damage/health possible (with the exception of the arrows). They may not have the specials effects that the more expensive items do, but they have served me pretty well.

If you find the alliance quests difficult even after buying lots of good gear, you can just allow AI to win skirmish matches for you. If you still have the 500 EP you were given two months ago, this is definitely the best investment for easy EP. With the settings below you can win most matches without moving at all in around 17 minutes, giving you 5 AP each time. The repeatable quests for defeating 10 standard/fierce enemies will earn you an extra 100 AP every 12 hours.

Oasis Map
Map size: Huge
Map resources: High
Player resources: Standard
Maximum age: 4
Victory condition: Wonder
Player ally: Unstoppable Persian King Amagemnon
Enemies: 4x Fierce Celtic Village Elder

Gaining 115 AP per day earned me 1.5k EP by the end of first month. I'm in the Carthage Alliance on the Abydos server. Other server and alliance combinations could give more or less depending how busy they are.

The alliance quests are not needed for any achievements. They do give generous item rewards, though.

1.5k - Is this 1.500 coins? If so, then it's really cheap.

I klick on the trade channel, then i see some good things, but if i klick again on the item it just shows me the details, i don't even know how to buy it.

Where do i get these items? Just chance of chest or buying from a shop?

Hmm i will try this, but i must check again, which quest that is. Defeating 10 enemies is new to me.


PS: Seriously? 1500 Empire Points just through skirmish? If you have purchased both new civ's for what do you spend the rest of that?

Your PC won't "break". But i can understand that the games crashes. It happens to me daily. Then i restart my pc and start the game again. I hope robot/GAS will fix this. It's really fucked up, that you HAVE TO need the launcher open, to start spartan.exe (The game itself)

You can do persian cohersion easily with a bunch of 1k items. I got like 1400 EP by doing that each day in a little bit more than a month. I used to do it with one civilization, 8-10 EP each day, plus weekly and monthly. Now with 2 civilizations, I get like 9-12 EP a day. I just got my celt to level 40 with a bunch of 1k items and it's pretty easy. Just make sure to seperate your force correctly and fuse them back before taking out the three villages with towers.

Is this the quest, where i have to conquer 10 villages in 12 Minutes? I tried these once, i took 7 villages, then the time was over, and i had no other military men. I spend to much time to wait because i had no resources. Now i bought some epic gear from argos and maybe this time i can beat it. Let's see.

It's just stupid that this issue has been since the game first came out and they havent done anything. Not that it's been happening to me since then but just what people say over at the AoE forums.

I agree that nothing happenend but the update. But you should remember that the game is quite new, i am playing this game just one and a half year now and i know the game is still improving. Only Manko: They must enhance the performance of the game.

I'm looking for a partner to work on alliance quests. Pharoahs challenge and pallace race belgica are the primary ones. Tired of trying to find a partner on the game since if takes forever and anyone i do find have no idea how to do the missions.(it gets very tiring having to explain what to do with each new partner) Would be nice to just complete them with one partner so we can get them done as quickly as possible. I've gotten one achievement building from them so far. Anyway if you know how to do those missions feel free to message me.

Just a note to everybody who is having problems finding partner for alliance. You might consider changing to Marathon once you get your monthly EP bonus. It's the only server that is crowded and it's easy to find a partner there.
