Isle of Gold Event Guide (Monopoly)

Isle of Gold is the new interesting monopoly-like game mode in AFK Arena where players need to roll the dice to build up their own base (island), upgrade buildings, and attack other players!

Isle of Gold Event

Quick Isle of Gold Tips:

  • Build PoE, Labyrinth, Guild Coin Resource Building first.
  • Spread out the resource building so you can protect them with defensive buildings and upgrade every time you roll in.
  • Place the stones on the first 1/2 of the island, getting strengthened with the respective tower, to weaken the enemies. Then, place the resource buildings on the last 1/2 half so you can deal with weakened enemies easier.
  • It’s best to just focus on upgrading resource buildings & defensive buildings (flowers) because the resource buildings give extra resource yield for every successful defense.
  • Upgrading resource buildings doesn’t increase their production speed, but increases the additional resource yield by 7% per hour for a successful defense (capped at 100%).
  • The stones are for weakening the enemies, the towers are for boosting stones & defensive lineups, the flowers are for boosting the offensive power.
  • At level 5/10, the resource building allows you to ban 1/2 specific Heroes from participating in the battles. It’s best to ban Anz Ainz & Lucretia Lucretia at the moment.
  • If your resource building gets attacked, it stops producing for 1 hour.
  • Place the towers next to your resource buildings to protect them.
  • Place the Stones on the left side of the island to weaken the enemies.
  • The flower buildings strengthen your heroes when raiding other players. Place them on some last tiles of the island as they don’t give any value on defense.
  • Players can only build 4 resource buildings and 14 support buildings at max.
  • Attack the enemies before rolling your dice to avoid getting an extra pillage chance while having the 2/2 cap.
  • If you leave the Pillage even before selecting an enemy, you still lose an attempt.
  • Players can modify the building positions whenever they want.
  • Players receive 6 dice rolls every 12 hours. Max cap is 30.
  • Players can attack the others only 2 times every day.
  • If possible, ask your friends to help you defend the base using Ainz comps.
  • The attacker always lands on this tile:

Below is an example defensive base for everyone. Designing your own to enjoy the game even more!

Or If you don’t have Ainz comp, or you just are not able to defend against almost all attacks, use the following setup. It’s not a joke if it works!

In the starting, each player has 30 initial dice rolls.

Players shall receive 6 dice rolls every 12 hours, but no more than a total of 30 dice rolls can be accumulated.

Players may construct up to 4 Resource buildings, from which they can obtain the resources they want.

Players may construct up to 14 Defensive buildings to help defend against other players pillaging their island. The defensive buildings can only cover any resource building within 3 types, so it is recommended to mix them up so that any all buildings are covered.

Building upon the island provides Island Experience, which can be used to raise the island’s Island Level, unlocking the corresponding reward in the process.

Functional Buildings cannot be upgraded, however, special rewards can be acquired from these buildings when a player lands upon them.

You will be placed on a random tile at first. Then you can roll the dice 6 times.

After moving, you will be able to target 2 nearby buildings.

Whenever you go to an un-garrisoned building, you can just collect the loot it has. If it is garrisoned, you must attack the camp to get the loot, or you can skip it and roll the dice again.

Whenever you walk to a defensive building, it will trigger its effects.

After 6 rolls, the raid ends.
