Are you in a new kingdom,no matter,except if you just started playing you might not know the rules.
The leader of the clan that is holding the place of power POPis the Konung, and every 24 hours the leader of every other clan has to pay 10% of his silver to him.
The time is variable depending on the state of the kingdom, and if there is a major competition going on.
All you have to do is to make sure that the chief of the clan has no silver stock, 10% of 0 is nothing to pay...
Okay, I'm new also and started my own clan and have been paying the levy, but no idea who holds the place of power. Most likely can't fight whoever it is because I'm sure they are way bigger than me. You say to bank the silver; I don't know how to do that. Or you say to place it with another clansman or some such and I don't know how to do that, either. What few clan members I have are those who have joined on their own volition; I've never courted any members and only made a clan because it was necessary in order to permit me to do something I wanted to do at that moment. I don't remember what it was, lol. Anyway, I just now paid it AGAIN for something over 1.2 billion. How can I hide my silver; just spend it down to nothing or what? If I give it to one of my "clansmen," it would be the same as the levy in respect to the fact that I would never see it again. I would need step by step directions on how to do this if it can be done. I have several subscriptions, one of them being for daily silver and I don't want to just keep feeding an anonymous person who does nothing in return, so your help would be much appreciated. If I can't do this, I'll just quit the game when my one month subscriptions run out, then buy whatever stuff I can with what I have left and then just leave the game.
You have several options.
Assuming the subscription doesnt directly add the silver to your useable stock, just leave it where they put it,it maybe isnt live and increasing to the levy cost, in any event its safer there.
Sending silver to a member of your clan or a clan bank ,trusted and shielded, will cost you the transfer fee, which does reduce as you increase the market size, but it is only on what you send, not the whole amount you have as the chief, additionally its 10% of what the chief has roughly every day,so sending to a bank/member, means its only paid once and not continually so it does work out more favourably.
Additionally,the transfer fee goes to the game, not someone in it who will use it for their benefit against yours
You could spend your silver to nothing and only access silver from a stock amount when needed for game use.
Usually the silver levy is every 24 hrs ,so you can work out when its safe to have silver in your possession.
As only the chief pays the tax, other options apart from quitting, or disbanding your clan,is join another clan, or make yourself an alternate, i.e. additional account, even if it says it isnt allowed, even though it isnt supposed to happen, it does, most everyone has one,and they seem fine with it,at least currently.
Almost forgot, if you get strong enough, you can take control of the POP and get the benefits and the squabbling over the POP and the resetting affects the levy payment time schedule.
