Word has reached us from Athens regarding the imminent arrival of Blacksmiths – skilled Equipment breakers that will improve the breaking process immeasurably! Breaking Equipment into pieces has long been one of the most arduous tasks in Sparta – but not anymore!
Purchasing and activating a Blacksmith will give your City extra prowess, allowing you to break two General Equipment Items at once!
This new Item is only available as part of Special Offer packages and cannot be obtained on its own from the Market. Make sure to check your Special Offers regularly!
If a Special Offer containing the new Item is currently active, there will be a special icon whenever you view the General interface. Clicking on this will take you to the Bank, directly to the Special Offer in which the Blacksmith can be found. From there, simply make your purchase to take advantage of all the benefits your new Blacksmith will yield!
After you have purchased your Blacksmith, you will need to activate him. To do this, go to Market > Misc. > Special, and click on the “Apply” button next to the Item. Alternatively, you can activate the Blacksmith directly from the General window. Your new Blacksmith will benefit your City for 7 days after it is activated.
Although it is not possible to extend the duration of a Blacksmith, any Equipment being broken at the time of this Item’s expiration will continue until finished. For example, if your Blacksmith has 1 hour remaining, and you attempt to break an Item with a Breaking Time of 2 hours, the Blacksmith will still finish the job.
Your General is the key to ridding Hellas of the accursed Persians! Use Blacksmiths to take the fight to Xerxes!
