Premium buildings are owned by the luckiest of players. These elusive buildings are only available for purchase prior to launch, also granting dubs to players when providing upkeep to each building (but with an added bonus). The troops housed in these buildings receive additional perks when used to gather resources through Wilderness Raiding, when battling other players in Cryptopian Warzone and attacking world bosses in Defend Cryptopia.
Premium buildings initially begin at Tier 1 but can be upgraded up to three times (culminating with Tier 4 as the highest of each type). Upgrading buildings provides the following bonuses:
- Higher yields of doubloons during building upkeep (Village Screen)
- Grants access to more difficult expeditions (Wilderness Raiding)
- Increases troop strength when attacking world bosses (Defend Cryptopia!)
- Provides stronger troops for PvP combat (Cryptopian Warzone)
Premium buildings can be upgraded three times, with each iteration providing greater bonuses
More information about the resources required for building upgrades can be found in the Upgrading section of this whitepaper.
