Three Kingdoms Online: City TutorialPosted by Jack
Many players ask me how to build a city and how did I manage so many city. So here a quick tutorial about how to build a city.
The basic :
What a sub-city and what’s a main city ?
The Main city is the city where a mansion is built. You can only have one mansion so choose your main city wisely. The other cities are called sub-city and have an annexe instead of a mansion in it.
The main city have many advantages compare to your other city:
1- you can build your resources field to level 20 instead of level 10.
2- you can build a monitor office to increase the durability of your construction in a city with a mansion
3- you can have three oasis instead of two oasis
4- you can build three cities from your main city instead of 2.
Since it cost less money to build an annexe level 10 than build a mansion to level 15 and to level 20, the last point is not really important.
So how does it work by level ?
Level 10 mansion= 1 sub city
level 15 mansion= 2 sub cities
level 20 mansion= 3 sub cities
Career center in a city with a Mansion
Level 10 career center = 1 oasis
level 15 career center = 2 oases
level 20 career center = 3 oases
While a sub city can only accumulate 2 sub cities
level 10 annexe= 1 sub city
level 20 annexe= 2 sub cities
Career center in a city with a annexe
Level 10 career center= 1 oasis
level 20 career center= 2 oases
Where to build your city ?
|Once you get your mansion or annexe you need to recruit three pioneers.|
|Then you choose an empty spot where you want to build your city. Each empty area has its own unique resource configuration on like… 4 5 3 6, 5 4 3 6, 5 3 4 6 which means…|
|That for a 4 5 3 6, It has 4 timberlands 5 stone mines 3 iron mines and 6 farms. (like on the previous image)|
|Guarded empty place (where there a guard standing on the map with a 9 and 15 number on them)|
The guarded field have a slightly different configuration giving less resources but more food, the configuration might be 3 3 3 9 (which mean 3 of each resource field 9 farm field) or 1 1 1 15 (which mean 1 of each resource field 15 farm field). Those fields are perfect to build large army since they provide more food.
How to choose the best spot for your city ?
You can choose a resource configuration that suit a type of troop you want to build, like for defensive city for shu would be a city with pikeman, lancer and auto-crossbowman which require a lot of wood, so a 5 timberlands spot might suit you well. You can always cope your lack of certain resources production by grabbing some oasis.
The oasis can only be attacked in your 7×7 area of your city so you might want another city near it and have that oasis in it 7×7 to be able to help you strike that oasis.
I will make another post later on “how to grab” a oasis but for now you can always check that link on the TKO forum.
You can build your city anywhere has long it’s a empty spot, so it’s mean it can be outside your 7×7 area and yes it can be in another state.
You don’t have to build a mansion for your first city, instead you can wait to have a better spot or even if you feel adventurous on field with more food like a 9 or 15 farm field. Imagine having a main city with a 15 farm field level 20, you would have almost a force that could wipe most of other cities.

There a other way to grab a city, and that’s with a Lobbyist, but that will be in a other post.
For now you can always check the forum information on that here.
