Where To StartEdit
The first thing you should do when starting a new village is build your Main Building to at least level 5, and an Embassy(only required to build the Palace and to join an alliance, so you don't need an Embassy in all your villages) to level 1, thus allowing you to build a Residence or Palace. If it's your first village, you may want to build the Residence, because your first village is already your capital and if you feel the need to move your capital someplace else, you can simply build the palace in the new village instead of having to tear it down in your first village. This allows you to expand faster since the Residence costs less to build than the Palace, although it contains less expansion slots than the latter, since it allows you to expand with only 2 new villages, one at 10 and 20, compared to the Palace at 10, 15, and 20. Depending on your play strategy, you can either raid the resources from others or protect your production from others. If you are an attacker its easier for you to build but if you are a defender and others are attacking you, you need to worry about hiding your troops, your extra resources and how to stop others from thinking about attacking you, so take those things into consideration when deciding to expand.
Building Costs And Construction Times Edit
Below is a brief list of the building costs and the construction times for the four buildings mentioned above

After that, you have to be persistent on how often you upgrade your Residence or Palace. Both buildings must be at level 10 before you can train your first settler. The settler costs vary for each tribe.
Many players begin to develop their Residence/Palace when the resource fields of that village reach 280 and hour, or Level 7 of each. Advanced players often raid enough to pull one out beginning with level 6 resources though.The last thing you should know before you send your settlers off is that they need 750 units of each resource. Good luck to you.
