Does not look like I will be getting a sphinx. I have dropped over a million coin at moes from 25 to 35 lvl chests. I have gone through thousands of chests in quests, it just looks like all hope is lost. I even tried to start a conversation with the devs in the game and in the forums, they don't even care to respond sad really. In-game chat they Say make a topic about it in the forums, do that and the just ignore it completely. I even made a thread in the suggestions part of the forum and it is pretty popular, still nothing. oh well i don't care anymore.

I am yet to get anything good from Moe's. I spent 100k yesterday on lvl 40 chests and the best thing i got was an Ares war shield. No blueprints at all :-(

i also spent over 100k at moes from lv 25-40 chests(mostly 25 and 40) easily 200-300k since i found some recipies that i could sell of for 100k+. didnt got a single building blueprint from it. i almost leveled 4 civs at 40 (33 was my last one at the time i got the sphinx) i also did skrimish every day on all civs and not a single blueprint.

i guess its just pure luck. If i wasnt a completion whore i wouldnt bother with this achievement but if you really want it i suggest you do the daily quests in skirmish on all civs and with the coin you earn buy level 30 chests because that was the method that worked for me.

Been doing this for the past week for my Celts. More like 85%.

Since the update I've gotten 3 Libraries. -_-

That's more than I got. Not a single blueprint on my way to 40. Been doing skirmish everyday and no blueprints. Working on my celts when not trying elite meet in crete so I can have another civ to do everyday.

Before the Celts came out, I was 40 all 3 civs. I had recieved 1 sphinx, library and academy, and 3 small step pyrimads.

Getting Celts to 40 - nothing.

I am now just logging on to do dailys to try get the Tomb, and have since received 1 more of each of the 3, yet still no tomb. Its just luck guys, don't get poopy over it because you're not getting them, they will just take [a lot of] time!

Because I know I'll be asked;
Sphinx 1: A Cyprus quest
Sphinx 2: From one of the two chests you get from doing the mentioned Skirmish Wonder tactic
Library 1: From the chest farming in "Challenge: Lots of Rouges!"
Library 2: No idea
Academy 1: One of the refugee quests in Argos. The "Get to age 3 quickly" and "Build a Fleet" ones, I did all of them and opened the chests at the same time so can't be more specific.
Academy 2: Level 30 Moes chests

Got all civs to level 40 and still searching for that Sphinx.

I think I bought Library back when the game first came out. Found 1 Library and Spartan Academy by chance since then. If I build all 3 Crete Wonders in my Greek city and Sphinx is my last achievement, I'll spend all my money on level 30 chests at Moes.

I've spent all my money from all 4 civs, and still don't have my tomb. I do the Legendary and Elite Crete quests once a week just for the extra money to gamble, and all the other dailys that can give me the tomb, and it still isn't coming to me xD

So I'm wishing you good luck! This position sucks for all of us :/

Finally got my Tomb

Since I got my Celts to 40, I spent every day doing the daily skirmish quests for all 4 civs. I can personally confirm that this is by far the best method of approach. All the money you get while doingit aswell can go towards Moes, the over 500k that I spent at it though only net me 1 building. However, I got 2 Sphinx and then finally my Tomb from the Skirmish method.

I have mentioned the skirmish tactic to a few friends, and one of them (STFUppercut) came back saying he tested Greek King Minos and thought he was better as an ally. After trying him I would have to agree, I have only ever failed once with him (When he placed the wonder but didn't build it >.>) whereas I had about a 90% success rate with Persian King Agamemnon.

I don't know what's wrong with me but I can't even win a single Skirmish match. I've tried all the suggestions in this thread, but I still lose every single time.

Perhaps someone could fill me in on exactly what they do from start to finish?

What I personally do,

Ally Unstoppable Greek King Minos,
Enemy Untoppable Celt Village Elders
Huge Oasis
High map Resources
Wonder

I immediatly put my villagers to work on the berry bushes, and start building more with the start food. I continue doing this until I have 20 population, but make sure I only have a max of 2 villagers in build at a time so that everytime I get 200 food I can gift it. Early food = more villagers for your ally = quicker build. When the Berry bushes run out, I then just focus on wood the rest of the game, gifting everytime I have 200. Typically done at 12minutes.

I'm using the same setup but I'm doing nothing. I just idle all the way and let my ally win the game. Won 20 out of 24 games

I must be the world's worst player (or the unluckiest), but I've followed this method exactly six times now, and so far I've only won once. It's beginning to embarrass me; I am ashamed.

Could it possibly have anything to do with the fact that I'm only level 15 and I am not using a premium civ?

I just got into AoEO. I haven't purchased any of the premium content. Do I have any chance of getting the blueprints for the achievement buildings?

It really has to be a problem with your level or that you are not premium. I used this method today and won 10 out of 12 games without doing anything.
You might try setting enemy AI to fierce and your ally to Unstoppable(95% win)
I've got the Tomb Blueprint with AI's set to fierce.

All right, thanks. I can win no problem with it set to fierce. I guess the chests aren't as good as unstoppable though?

The chests max out at your level. So I think its around level 36+ that you need an unstoppable enemy, otherwise you will still get the max you can get for your level with 4 fierce and you'll pretty much always win

The reward for the chests is respective of how many coins the quest gives, with 220 being level 40 chests.

Thanks for the help, I'll keep all this information in mind.
But, since I'm here I'll ask one last and final question:
Will I unlock the 'Achieve level x with Premium Greek content.' achievements if I first reach level 40 and then purchase the premium content?

I started the game and went AFK and when I came back it had timed me out. How did you avoid this?

I don't go fully AFK, I give away my initial resources, set my villagers to gather from bushes then alt tab out to browse the net. Come back every 5 minutes or so to gift resources. If you were constantly pressing a button, that might prevent the game from kicking you for idling. Thus the picture of the drinking bird, lol.

It takes 30 minutes to time out, so it shouldn't ever time you out before the skirmish finishes.

For some reason I keep failing now. Never had an issue until today. I am doing the same thing as before but now it equals a loss. Any ideas?
