Yeah, I have done the same, and even without a wonder-oriented advisor it is still easy to beat the AI to completion. I was just hoping to figure out an AFK version because I am seriously done with this game and just need the Sphinxter to drop. LOL!

Can anyone tell me if you can obtain the Large Pyramid & Large Step pyramid from a chest/skirmish daily? I know you can obtain them from quest rewards from the Egypt quest line, but I use a Greek Civ. Thanks in advance, and sorry if I missed this mentioned somewhere else!

No only given as a quest reward, get your Greeks to 40 then do some alliance quests, should earn enough EP to get Egypt for free in about a month or less

That, and the fact that with the new update it no longer requires 25k of each resource!

i read somewhere that they are. problem is, the boosterpack, anniversary update and babylonian civ added so much more items and those vanity tickets (which seem to drop awfully lot in chests to me) that really take so much chances off of getting one of those desired blueprints. your best bet is still moes with level 20 chests or any other chest thats not to much higher.
you get way to much equip or other things in higher level chests. hope you are getting lucky, i am not

your right. Those vanity stuff and all the new stuff are taking away chances for the wanted blue prints to show up. Im gonna run argos again though i've reached level 40 in egipt.

Not for me!



The Tomb took the longest to find. For the others, I ended up with 2 of each, except for the Sphinx, of which I found 3.

To be fair, it took me 331 hours to accrue all of those... I got every achievement building from Moe's, as did my friend. We both received them all from level 30 chests. I mixed it up from time to time with 40's etc, but they never gave the buildings.

They are close to the worst achievements I have come across, as you need to rely completely on luck. I did a fair bit of grinding on the daily repeatables for Alliance mode, then sold what I had received and went to Moe's. That was my ritual for several weeks, until I finally found the last building I needed. I wish they were tradable, so others wouldn't need to go through the same BS.

Good luck, I hope you find it soon.

eheh good luck mate. Its been a while since i wnet to moe's, im saving money for it but unlike you, all my buildings were won by completing quests/treasure chests even though i've tried to get them through moe's. I do love the game otherwise i wouldnt be spending so much time with it because of these stupid lucky ass achievements lolol yes they are one of the words i've come across too and its ridicilous.

Do you already got all the achievements?

btw, where do you see the hours spent in the game? im curious about mine.

Cheers. Well, that's the thing, it is luck. i may get them all from Moe's, you may get them all from quests. I may get them in 300 hours, you might get them within 10. That's why they are bullshit, as you can't directly influence them, there is no skill involved other than maybe being able to cross your fingers. lol. It's definitely a great game, very reminiscent of AoEII, besides the art style. It would be hell if you didn't like it and were only playing for the achievements, it would make these buildings even worse.

I do have all of the achievements, thankfully. GPG are releasing the Norse civilization soon though, so I'm not sure whether they will include more achievements then. 1455 is such a strange number.

I play the game through Steam, which keeps track of your hours played for every game. If you grabbed it from the GFWL marketplace or the AoE:O website, I think something like Raptr would be an option for tracking time. It only tracks from when you sign up... Steam is more convenient.

I dont think it will have more achievements since the game now is free, as you could see with the babylons who don't have achievements. Its a shame but thats the way it is. I think the civs were all supposed to have achievements but since the game turned out free, guess its over.

Ah yes steam shows the time. Regarding raptr, i dont think they track the time well but oh well, it doesnt really matter, it was just curiosity. But wait a minute... 118 hours regarding raptr. Thats a bit.

Since i dont want more civs (no achievements) unless its one i really like, i guess im gonna start wasting EP in decoration and stuff like that lol

Im starting now defense of crete so i guess it will boost the hours of the game since that thing take ages to get all the materials to build the statues. Its ridiculous once again ahah

take care

So far I have gotten the Library from the repeatable "Age" quests in Sparta (level 35-38 chest) and the Spartan Academy from one of the Ambrosia Obsession sub quests (level 40 chest) in the Fertile Crescent pack. Gotta keep grinding.

I do no have have time to do a lot of missions, so I bought some online coins to invest in Moe's. I have spent over 400k in Moe's, like 300k in level 20 chests and 100k in level 25 chests but no Tomb, Library or Academy yet. Can anyone confirm that they still can be found at Moe's in level 20 chests after last years update??

I can confirm that the Sphinx can be found in level 30 chests at Moe's.

Agreed. I have yet to find the Sphinx, which is the last achievement I need in the game. Very tired of grinding it out, and I have spent over 3 million at Moe's so far, mostly on level 40 chests.

Go for level 20-25 chests. I found 4 achievement buildings from Moe's in level 20 chests after about 100k. The sphinx is the rarest one undoubtedly. Across 6 civs I have 5 Libraries, 4 Tombs, 2 Academy and 1 Sphinx.

I finally got a Sphinx and am done with the game. Total spent at Moe's was just over 8 million gold, mostly on level 40 chests. I know the Sphinx is available in lower level chests, but I made much of that 8 million by selling in the trade channel various items I got out of those level 40 chests, including two hammers I sold for 1.5 million each.

At any rate, all done!

Spent about 10 million in coin made about 5 million in coin and got all the blueprints except the sphinx at least 4 times each. Fucking sphinx took forever. Lvl 40 chests are key.

Man MS does it again. First, the civs go free to play and now the achievement buildings are going to be handed out for free. I have put over 300 hours in this damn game and after suggesting countless times on the aoe forums when the game was still getting new content, that the achievement buildings need to be made tradable or drop more often. Got no response. Oh well guess it's great for the people who paid nothing for free achievements.


Sorry for the rant, shit like this makes me mad.
