Just realised thats how I got it not Recapturing, sorry for any confusion caused

I think I've dumped about 250k on lvl 20 chests at Moes... I've gotten 6 libraries and 4 tombs... no spartan academy yet... sigh. I've also struck out on the Sphinx too. I swear this game just doesn't want to let me finish it off! :P

So after about 300k+ total spent at Moes... I finally got a Spartan Academy from a lvl 25 chest. Now I just need the Sphinx... Recapuring Amathus has been kind enough to give me a few items that have sold for over 100k to help fuel my Moes spending...

I'm so ready to stop looking for this last blueprint, though...

So after getting tired of grinding out Recapturing Amathus, I decided to switch it up. I started exclusively doing the Skirmish Hall daily quests across all three of my civs... giving me something like 63 level 40 chests a day. After about two weeks of doing this, not only did I get some decent gear and advisors, but I finally got the Sphinx. I now have officially completed this game!

Congratz have been using the skirmish method myself. Got loads of stuff that sold for a lot of gold plus another Sphinx, Library and Spartan academy.

After dumping just over 500k into moes, 200kish in level 20, no tomb Over 300k on level 40, 3 more libraries, 3 more academies and a sphinx.

Total so far 3 Sphinx, 5 Spartan academies, 5 Libraries, 5 small step pyramids. No tomb hopefully upcoming patch ill make them tradeable again

By this do you mean the "taking out the trash", "cleaning house" and "kicking them to the curb" (again) quests?

If so then what is the fastest way/set up to win a skirmish?

Just to let point out pretty much none of these methods of farming chests/gold work anymore after the spring update.

Chest guardians have a ridiculous amount of hp now and skirmish is a bitch to win.

Really have to get very lucky now

You can still do Lot's of Rogues by building some Towers at the camp.

While doable its not as quick and I find its better to just spend an hour doing some of the easy daily repeatable quest for the gold, build up a decent amount then hit moes.

On the plus side less farming will prob mean less good items in trade and you might get more money for things

Skirmish farming still works.
Map: Oasis.
Map Size: Huge.
Map Resources: High
Player Resources: Standard
Maxium Age: IV and Victory: Wonder

Have 1 ally (Unstoppable Persian Agamemnon) And 4 enemies (Unstoppable Celtic Village Elders)

Takes around 14mins to win. Ive won 12 out of 13 attempts and got the spartan acadamy from one of the chests i received

Worked perfectly on all 4 of my civs and I finally got a Tomb as a reward!!!

All achievement blueprints now found

Final total 4 Sphinx, 5 Spartan Academies, 8 Libraries, 6 Small Step Pyramids and 1 Tomb!!!!!

To confirm I found 3 of my Spartan Academies, 2 Libraries and 3 Small Steps from level 20 Moes Chests, but no Tomb. I got 2 Sphinx, 2 Spartan Academies and 4 Libraries from Level 40 Moes chests.

I got all blueprints as rewards for skirmish repeat daily quests and recommend that as the way to go, if you dont get a blueprint you will get somethings worth selling in trade

Can now start using the good stuff I find instead of selling it

Sry for the late reply, I'm a bit busy around here... As you all mentioned that the methods don't work anymore due to the spring patch, I'll mark the first post as outdated and put the method Unsaferllama7 there instead.

Thx 4 the tacic and the confirmations

Exactly as it says above:

Skirmish
Map: Oasis.
Map Size: Huge.
Map Resources: High
Player Resources: Standard
Maxium Age: IV and Victory: Wonder

Have 1 ally (Unstoppable Persian Agamemnon) And 4 enemies (Unstoppable Celtic Village Elders)

I killed off my scout and bought villagers untill i had 19 and then chopped wood with them all and gave it to my ally.

Thx Unsaferllama7 for that method!

I've updated the first post in the thread to provide the information on the starting page.
All other methods are marked as OUTDATED except the chests at Moe's.

or you can go afk with the same settings, just put the enemy's to fierce instead of unstoppable. works about 99.9 percent of the time. Great for power leveling your civs.

What level chests drop with Unstoppable vs Fierce?

As far as power leveling goes though thanks for that, I can't bear to sit through 20 more levels with the Celts. I liked their campaign but I just find them so weak in comparison to Greek/Persia.

Do you still get the same level chests this way?

they are a little lower, but this is meant as a way to power level not really get anything good. I have got a few epic items, but I just resell all the items I get and head to moe's in my greek city of halo!!! lol
