The Quests you need to accomplish can be found on the lower left side of your screen and accomplishing these as strictly as you can will reward you with much needed resources to grow and develop your kingdom faster.
A lot of actions you will have to constantly do still contribute to quests you may not readily see. Don’t worry about it though as in a lot of cases, you will see quest objectives already completed and you will have a “claim” button instead of a “go” one to receive your extra rewards. It is simply more practical to allow these quests to serve as your main guide towards progress especially if you just recently started the game and still need to be introduced to many of the game’s features and activities.
2. Claim Tax, Grain Levies And Recruit Soldiers As Often As You Can
One of the structures in Call Me Emperor you ought to visit as regularly as you can is the Governance Hall and by choosing “govern” within it, you earn basic resources and troops that you will always need for various activities in the game. As you will never have more than enough of anything you can get out of these resource structure, always take note of the time it takes for you to again be able to claim resources.
Taels, which serve as the basic currency in the game can be gained from the Tax Levy. Grains, which you will need to recruit more troops and grow your army, can be claimed from Grain Levy, and the grains you collect and save will be needed to recruit more troops for your kingdom. Take note as well that the higher your account level goes, the more attempts you can stack up on the levies and recruitment. At some point, it will take a lot longer to fully regenerate all attempts to claim resources which will consequently be more convenient for you.
3. Progress Through Stage Battles To Grow Your Fame
You will have several chances to go through some stage battles early on in the game and from time to time; completing certain stages will form part of the main quests. Stage battles are divided into chapters and each chapter is further divided down into 6 stages with the second and fifth stages having elite enemies and the sixth and final stage being a boss battle. All stages except the last one will be based on your military strength and the higher the disparity between your military power compared to the enemy’s, the less number of troops you lose on each battle. For the sixth stage which is the boss battle, your top minister with the highest military prowess will take on the boss and it’s basically a battle of combat power.
There are basically only 2 things to keep an eye on for the first five stages of each chapter, the number of your troops compared to the enemy’s and your comparative military strength. You need to ascertain that you have a big enough advantage on both considerations that can sustain you enough through the series of battles on each stage. Preferably, go for battles that has low loss rate for your troops especially in stages where there are too many battles to go through per stage. The elite enemy troops are expected to be a little more challenging as well so pay close attention to army strength and troop count variance in those stages. In case of doubt with regards to claiming victory, you can always back out, claim more resources and grow your army more before daring to challenge the battle stage again.
4. Upgrade Your Ministers Regularly
Managing all the affairs of an entire kingdom is a feat that can overwhelm even the best of emperors as no single entity can make any kingdom grow and prosper out of his sole effort. As such, you need your ministers to build and strengthen your kingdom and as each one of the many ministers you will have has his own unique strength and capability, it is best to ensure that you keep ministers as strong as they can be.
Ministers have unique stat attributes based on 4 specializations. Ministers with a high proficiency in commerce can help with boosting taels you gain from the Tax Levy. A high level of agriculture directly impacts how much grain you can reap from the Grain Levy. Politics have an impact on the troops you can gain from recruitment. Last but not the least, Military is a minister specialization that affects strength in battle and impacts how many troops you will lose per fight. Ministers typically specialize in one of these attributes well over the others though some will have a combination of two strong stats.
You can upgrade each minister at the cost of taels and each new level reached results in an increase of their stats and combat power which also raises yours. Take note of each minister’s potential per stat as this will influence how much bonus stats he will get from each level up. There are plenty of consumable items like potential fruits and titles which can instantly raise a minister’s potential and depending on your needs and preferences, you may have to think it through before choosing which general you ought to spend these items on.
Every time you gain a new level, you can acquire an additional minister through the imperial exam. As you can choose 1 from among 3 choices, be sure to read through each potential minister’s description particularly their strengths and choose the one that you need the most. Considering everything, it is best to keep all stats as balanced as you can with a little more emphasis on military as the stage battle is perhaps the only feature in the game that can hamper your growth and having exceptionally high military power is highly important for you to conquer it.
Within the imperial academy as well, the Grand Council is a structure you need to invest some resources and time on to further boost the strength of your ministers as it serves as an educational institution where an appointed minister can gain growth points and skill points from. You will only have one available slot here initially and assigning a minister will take time to receive growth points and skill points. For best results, spend some gold early on to unlock additional one or two slots early on to be able to assign more ministers and make the most out of your occasional visits here.
