In Part 1 of my Mobile Strike farm account guide, we looked at how to build multiple farm accounts and manage them from a single device. Part 2 explains how to maximize your resource production and capacity for each farm type.
For a pure food, oil, iron, or stone farm you will want to build 22 farms, oil wells, iron mines, or quarries. You will need to build one of each of the other resource buildings in order to upgrade your base. However, once you level your farm as far as you intend to go, these can be destroyed and replaced with three more of your chosen type to get the maximum 25 tiles.
Inside your walls you will need most of the buildings whilst leveling, but all the spare tiles can be filled up with banks to help coin production. Again, once you reach your required farm level, you can destroy all of the buildings inside your walls and replace them with 25 banks.
Remember that you will need to keep your Hall of Heroes until you have finished leveling your commander. You will need your Armory until you have manufactured all of your commander gear and your Research Facility until you have maxed out your production research.
A pure coin set up the follows the same building layout as above, but your commander skills and equipment will be different.
Commander skills make up the majority of your production boost in Mobile Strike. If you are going for a pure food, oil, stone, or iron farm, you want to try and max the specific resource production skills I, II & III first. This will give you an 848% boost to food, or a 454% boost the the other three resources.
You will need commander level 35-38 to max all three skill levels, depending on which resource type you go for.
Once your main resource skill is maxed, you can drop the rest of your skill points into coin production I, II & III. It is possible to max all three levels of a single resource, plus coin, but you would need a level 47-48 commander to do so.
If you are making a pure coin farm, then you should max coin first which requires a level 39 commander and grants you a 454% boost to coin production.
Below is a list of the best commander equipment for each resource type. I have also incorporated the boost from maxed commander skills and research.
The gear listed below is all level of 40 and below, plus the equipment is limited to two accessory slots. Most players will not get their commanders to level 50, or their Armory to 21 (needed for the third accessory slot) on a farm account. However, at commander level 40 you can still max the production skills for a single boost.
Food equipment has some of the best boosts in Mobile Strike. Adding in a third accessory slot will get your overall food production over 2000%!
Coin has some fairly good boosts, but not as generous as food. You can still get over 1000% with a third accessory slot.
Stone, Iron and Oil
You have very few options when it comes to the remaining resources. In fact the only item that boosts stone and iron is the Tactical Sledgehammer (offering a very low 10% boost to stone and iron at orange quality). There is no equipment in the game that offers a boost to oil.
If your farm account is setup for stone, iron, or oil, then you are much better off equipping your commander with coin gear. This will boost the coin production of your banks.
Taking into account skills and research, you can still get your oil, stone. or iron boost to 532%.
Tip: Remember to activate a resource boost which you can purchase in the alliance store. This grants a further 25% temporary boost.
Production and Capacity
Once your farm is complete you should end up with either 25 farms, oil wells, iron mines, quarries, plus 25 banks. As mentioned in Part 1, the key farm levels are 9, 14 and 15+. Below I have included the base production rate per hour and total capacity for each farm type.
Production Rate Per Hour (25 Buildings)
Total Capacity (25 Buildings)
Applying the maximum boosts from commander skills and equipment above, you can end up with the following production rates:-
Production Rate Per Hour
You can see from the above that even a level 14 farm can produce just under 70 million food per day, or between 12 to 16 million of the other resources per day.
A full maxed level 21 farm will bring in over 240 million food per day, or between 48 to 63 million of the other resources.
One thing to bear in mind is that once you hit your capacity limit, you will need to empty your farm of resources, before you can start producing again. For instance if you only plan to transfer resources once a day, there is no point going for a farm producing 240 million resources a day, when you hit your capacity limit in a little under 4 hours!
Tip: To work out how often you will need to empty your farm, you need to divide your total capacity by your production rate. This will give you the number of hours it takes to fill your capacity limit.
For most players building level 21 farms is not time, or cost effective in Mobile Strike. Even if you did manage to get there, unless you plan to transfer resources every few hours, a large part of your production is wasted due to your capacity limit.
However, even a level 14 farm, with a moderate boost of 500% will still provide you with between 7.5 million to 18 million resources per day (depending on which resource you choose) and only requires one collection per day to keep it going 24/7.
Ultimately how far you take your farms is up to you, but try to make sure you don’t end up sitting with your farms at full capacity for long periods of time.
