Many people view tycoons let alone cross server tycoons as something only the rich can succeed at when the that couldn’t be further from the truth.;So I am going to lay out category by category what you earn points for and free strategies to maximize your points without spending. If you want to spend more power to you. You will get more points. But for F2P players listen up. When I first wrote this article I had only 70 gem card energy and got 54k CS tycoon points. The next CS tycoon I went in totally prepared for several 20k gemology days and ended the tycoon with 83k points without spending. Tycoons are what you make of them. Whether you spend or not so much the better prepared you are the better you come out at the other end. The below guides are a ROUGH idea of the points you can expect to acquire daily. Obviously there are factors that influence this up or down but for those who prepare this is a great guidepost to follow. So without further wait.
Before we point the Tycoon, it is good to see what point are each resource we collect. So we can decide which resources will be our priorities.
Gold: 10.ooo gold = 1 point
Soulstones: 1 soulstones = 2 points
Angel tears: 1 Angel tears = 20 points
Gemology points: 5 gemology points = 1 point
Bless Stones: 1 Bless Stones = 6 points
Runestones: 1 runestone = 1 point
Star Cutter: 1 Gem Enhancement Stone = 2 points
Seraph Stone: 1 Seraph Stone = 6 points
Element Dust: 1 Element Crystal = 2 points
Aegis Shard: 1 Aegis Shard = 2 points
Enchanted Ore: 1 Enchanted Ore = 1 point
You get 1 point for every 10k gold you collect. Gold collected from selling items doesn’t count. Gold collected from chests does not count.
1.) Collect login bonus. For VIP 7 that is 300k gold for 30 pts.
2.) Do alchemy attempts. You get nine. For me that is 275 gold each collect for a total of 247 pts.
3.) Win at least one CS match for 500k gold in hot events. 50 pts.
4.) Loop quests and dungeons for gold. Points may vary.
5.) Do erebus for gold obtained in event. Points may vary.
6.) Get 600 erebus score for 2 mil gold hot event prize. Not always possible but equals 200 pts.
7.) Wyrm race. Plunder and event rewards. Points may vary.
8.) Only plant gold in your garden. Points vary by level of your tree and soil but I get 26k gold per square per hour. 10+ pts an hour.
a.) Try planting in your garden every hour throughout the day. For smaller players whose gardens trees/soil isn’t leveled you get 10k gold per 2 hours. For veteran players you get upwards of 26k per 60-70 minutes (-10 min if watered). Do this for 10 hours a day. Then when your sleeping small players plant the 8 hour seeds. Vets plant the 24 hour seed as it takes us around only 12-14 hours per seed.
9.) Do tidal pool. 400k gold hot event reward. 40 pts.
10.) Tidal pool also gives gold from catching fish. Points may vary.
11.) 500 Devotion Points for 390k gold. 39 points.
12.) Do quiz daily. Points may vary.
13.) Do world boss daily. Points may vary.
14.) Do Dragonsoul to get 150k gold from hot events. 15 points.
15.) Guild bosses – varies
16.) Guild daily payment – varies
17.) Hall of fame praising- 5 pts.
18.) 54 points for post reset timed play rewards.
19.) Do inferno daily for 300-450k gold per attempt. 60 pts
a.) If it doesn’t hurt your score for S/A rank try to grab treasure chests for a chance at winning more gold.
—The day before tycoon right before reset blitz 30 times in a dungeon but don’t collect. Then open after reset to get all of that gold and still have 150+ stamina to do loop quests.
—I also recommend saving feast chests up between tycoons so when you open bit by bit as tycoon starts you have a ton of stamina from the chests waiting to use in the event to get more gold.
Total daily points = Minimum of 911+ points (Possibly much more).
There’s still a lot of gold to collect if you check here, but it is not only in tycoon mode, and remember that Gold collected from chest does not count.
All of the above but heavy emphasis on planting in your garden as you lose 7 alchemy attempts, and VIP login bonus. You will get roughly 85 points less each day.
You get 2 points for every soulstone collected. Soulstones collected from chests do not count.
1.) Do Tidal Pool before and after 1200 eastern time for two pool attempts each day. 820 tidal points get you 30 soulstones from benchmark rewards plus I believe 75 from the fish. 210 pts.
2.) Explore in raiders 15 times for 50 soulstones. 100 pts.
3.) Buy from voucher shop. Points may vary.
4.) Purchase with vouchers from group buy. 200 pts.
5.) Collect from loop quests. 30 soulstones. 60 pts.
6.) Possible to get from inferno. Points may vary.
7.) 500 devotion points for 10 soulstones. 20 points.
8.) Timed login reward for 10 soulstones. 20 points.
–In inferno lvl 55 or lower you win soulstones instead of seraph stones. Also if it doesn’t hurt your timed score for S/R rank try to grab treasure chests to possibly get more soulstones.
Total daily points = Minimum of 610 points.
Same as above
You receive 20 points for every angel tear collected. Tears collected from chests do not count.
1.) VIP login bonus for 8 tears. 160 points.
2.) Wyrm race rewards. Reward varies. Minimum of 60 pts.
3.) Voucher Shop. Points may vary.
4.) Group Buy. Points may vary.
5.) Angel bond hot event 45 tears. 900 points.
– If you have spare angels inherit one to the other then re-level that angel. Some have all angels maxed and cannot do this hot event.
6.) 500 devotion points for eight tears. 160 points.
Total daily points = 1,280+ points (Unless all angels maxed)
All of the above except you lose the VIP login bonus tears for a loss of 160 points daily.
You receive 1 point for every 5 gemology points.
1.) Extra 14 VIP gift;energy per day equals 30-70 tycoon points.
a.) Try averaging 25 pts per energy used. Two moves for 10 pts each is 20 pts but if two moves to score lets you get a 50-60 pt gemology combo that is 25-30 points on average per energy used.
b.) If possible always save up your gem energy cards until you see a tycoon you like and are prepared to use them in for rank/pts.
3.) Use 40-50 extra energy from gem cards to get 3,000 gemology points to get 60-80 gem energy cards as a reward in hot events leading up to the tycoon event. 3k equals 600 pts.
Total daily points = 600+ points minimum (Requires 3k in gemology).
You lose the extra 14 energy per day for a loss of 30-70 tycoon points. This means you may need to use 10-20 extra energy from gem cards And be especially diligent in planning your moves in gemology to obtain the maximum amount of points possible.
SPECIAL NOTE: In most previous tycoons either throughout the event or on the last day or two of the event they usually held some kind of gemology hot event. Since the introduction of the gem enhance star cutters having a gemology hot event for the entire duration is more common.;If you average 10 pts per move it tends to take 750-800 gem card energy to reach 20k points, but at 25 pts on average per move that is around 600 gem card energy. So using your moves wisely for the most points reaps benefits in using less energy that can be used later.
There is a high possibility that you can gain 50 points by using only 2 energy. Check it here for more informations.
You receive 6 points for every bless stone collected. Bless stones collected from chests do not count.
1.) You get 8 stones from VIP login bonus. 48 points.
2.) Tidal pool for getting 820k pts gets 3 stones. 18 points.
3.) Getting 1320 raiders points get 6 bless stones. 36 points.
4.) Voucher Shop. Points may vary.
5.) Group Buy. Points may vary.
Total daily points = 102+ points.
You don’t get the VIP login bonus for 48 points. They used to give 60 bless stones for doing TA each day but for tycoons they usually don’t offer that hot event reward for the duration of the event.
You receive 1 point for every runestone collected. Runes collected from chests do not count.
1.) Do eternal spire. You receive 700-900 runes. Minimum 700 pts.
a.) Every other day don’t open eternal spire after you started the blitz. Only open it after reset. The game then views this as having done six spire blitzes instead of the free three daily. Gives more prizes in hot events. Can be done three times per five day tycoon.
2.) Collect 100 runes from hot events. Collect 700 runes every other day from using the trick above. 100-700 pts. Averages to 420 pts.
Total daily points = 800+ pts (2100 pts on every other day).
Non- VIP Strategy:
You don’t get to flip two cards per boss cleared in spire blitz for a loss of 30 bronze cards valued at roughly 250 pts daily. 500 every other day for six blitz rewards.
Star Cutter [aka Gem Enhance tokens]
You receive 2 points for every star cutter collected.
1.) Achieve 3k gemology points to get 50 star cutters. 100 points.
—->;Achieve 20k gem points to get 500 star cutters. 1000 points.
2.) Achieve 3k gemology points to get 150 star cutters. 300 points.
—–>;Achieve 20k gem points to get 870 star cutters in hot events. 1740 points
3.) Buy 30 stars from arena shop in others tab. 60 points.
Total daily points = 500+ points (2740 points for 20k gemology days).
Same as above. No one regardless of VIP status achieves 2,000 gem points with free energy with the exception of extraordinarily rare occasions. As your pushing for 3,000 daily it requires gem cards so VIP status isn’t relevant. You simply may have two use 10-20 more gem energy from cards to achieve the same benchmark.
You receive 6 points for every seraph stone collected. Seraph Stones collected from chests do not count.
1.) Do Inferno daily. You obtain between 18-26 depending upon your timed reward in the event. You receive minimum of 216 points.
2.) But up to 20 daily with dragon crests in arena shop. 120 pts.
a.) It may be wise to save up dragon crests to be able to purchase the full 20 daily for each tycoon event.
3.) Receive 30 from hot events for clearing erebus. 180 points.
4.) Voucher shop. Points may vary.
5.) Group Buy. Points may vary.
Total daily points = 526+ points.
You cannot blitz erebus so you have to manually do it daily but 300 points to receive the hot event reward is easy to do so no difference in points received for non-vip members.
Correction: You can do Blitz (auto challenge), you just can’t do auto complete in erebus.
You receive 2 points for every element crystal collected. Element dust collected from chests does not count.
1.) Do inferno daily. 50-68 dust for rewards. Minimum of 100 pts.
a.) If it doesn’t hurt your chances at an S/A rank try to grab a few treasure chests for a chance to get more element dust.
2.) Voucher Shop. Points may vary.
3.) Group Buy. Points may vary.
Total daily points = 100+ points minimum.
Same as above with no variance.
You receive 2 points for every aegis shard collected. You do not receive points for aegis shards collected from chests.
1.) Blitz each aegis you have unlocked. The more zodiacs you have defeated the more aegis bosses you can blitz. Strength reliant. Points depend on how many you have unlocked but average veteran player gets 560-760 pts.
— The game doesn’t always let you but sometimes you can be blitzing more than one part of the game simultaneously. If it lets you blitz the highest zodiac you have unlocked right before reset but don’t collect. After reset open to collect and still have your new post reset blitz attempt available.
Total daily points = 560+ minimum
Same as above with no variance.
You receive 1 point per enchanted ore you collect.
1.) Blitz your eight free attempts in the elite dungeon of eternal spire – 40 points.
2.) Group buy 200 vouchers for 100 enchanted ore. 100 points.
Sometimes simultaneous hot events can reward more points.
Total daily points = 140+
Same as above with no variance.
You receive 1 point per Refine Stone you collect.
1.) Spend you 20 daily Jackpot points. Points may vary
2.) Vip 4 and aboves receive 5 additional points. Points may vary
3.) Buy it from Group Buy: Points may vary.
Sometimes simultaneous hot events and special events can reward more points.
Total daily points = 240+
Same as above Except you loose 5 jackpot point, about 15-50 points daily.
The above numbers go off of a couple base assumptions. That the VIP players are VIP 7 in the range of level 65-75 with an average BR of 650k or so. Higher VIP rank or lower give slightly different login rewards and many of these events don’t give a set amount of points daily so I went with a conservative average number. Your total points may vary.;Tycoons are a lot like war. You don’t just jump into it. It takes planning, careful management of resources, and finding legal available loopholes in the game such as the eternal spire six blitz trick. Your points may vary depending upon your level, time committed, and other factors. But I believe with proper planning and effort it is possible for everyone to achieve the minimum points to receive the impressive rewards these events can yield without having to spend their life savings to rank. And in single server events although slightly different many of the same strategies will help you excel and potentially rank high without having to spend. If however you fail to prepare properly for tycoons you will likely be forced to spend something to cover any shortfalls in points for advanced prizes as the minimum threshold goes up or down depending on the quality of prizes for that particular event.;The trick is to save up the necessary resources to excel in these events and when you see a tycoon you like pounce on it. If you are willing to spend money for an extra boost or to cover a point shortfall;more power to you. There is nothing wrong with that. But I know many of our members are full time students, facing medical problems with their families, are going through tough financial times, etc, so I wanted to create this guide to lend them a helping hand to acquire the minimum quality prizes.;It works just as well for spenders and will simply reinforce your progress in this event. I wish you all the best of luck. If you have questions, concerns, see a issue needing correction or have something to add simply let me know. But if you want to complain how your lazy and because you didn’t do everything I listed above its somehow unrealistic to do this then please don’t bother replying. This is for people who are willing to invest time and patience into preparing for these events.
If anyone has anything to add or if there is an update you would like listed simply comment below. Im sure there are things I haven’t thought of so please feel free to share your knowledge with others.
