The Double Spiral Design

With Spire sets and event buildings, those whipping willows are junk (nice culture, but too big)... those poor treants... that's treant cruelty!!
I'm in complete agreement about the Willows. I never built one of those monstrosities and they're certainly not in any way essential like various advice would leave you to believe. From the get go they give worse mana per square than more than one of the smaller standard mana producing buildings. The culture may be better if that's of particular importance.

Really? I was never lucky in life so I have to depend on work :(

Exactly, I already started to add points in the Main Hall Woodelves, with 2nd round tournament it will be done, and I have so far 105K mana, so counting decay and gain I'll be able to research it.

Edit: Upon checking the game, I see it's only 40K mana... I was thinking 130K for some reason, maybe to level it up, but I bet that in three days, my MH will be leveling up to woodelves. No willow.

Edit again: Yup, 133K mana to level up. Easy peasy. And I have already room for the extra 1x0 it grows.

What has life to do with that? I run two businesses, and I am usually busy. I feed a lot of diamonds from wells, and genie. So, nothing to do. I only spend 30 minutes or more when I am doing "tournament all the way", so it is not about time neither.

With event buildings alone, you do good without the willows, you do not need to touch the Spire (although it will massively help.)

Man,I never got diamonds from Genie or Wishing Wells but I got 150 Diamonds(thx creator),Dwarven Armorer & a Gum Tree with like 90hr boosters(got many & summed them) in total.I got that because I finished all my boosters on AW upgrade & passing gates.I am on stage 4 on the 2nd level on the Spire :D

Jimlun made it as far as Woodelves in his Winyandor city; I think Halflings was the top of the tech tree around the time he stopped playing, perhaps late 2017. It looks like he played for a bit a couple of winters ago, but his cities have been idle again for 15 months or so.
I had the pleasure of opening Felyndral realm with Jim; we got to fellowship together for a bit. It should come as no surprise to anyone that the man who created a new city design, was a top ranked player for a time, and also kept track of every Golden Abyss in the realm for a stretch (I think mine was the 19th one placed). His Fel city is in Dwarf.
We used to correspond occasionally even after we went our separate ways :)
