does building more than one garrison do anything more for you? If so what more does each one give you? what is the bonus? what is the best ratio between garrisons and houses?
It absolutely decreases training time. I would recommend between 10 -15 Garrisons and make sure to level them to a 9. With 10 level 9 Garrisons, you should be able to build LBM's at 19 seconds each, SSD's at 25 seconds, BD's at 1 min 16 seconds, and Giants at 4 minutes...
I have 15 Garrisons in my outpost. I can build LBM's in 15 seconds, SSD's in 23 seconds, BD's in 72 seconds, and Giants in 3 min 34 seconds...My outpost has 2 lvl 9 Garrisons and the rest are lvl 5 or 6. So those times should continue to improve.
There is a good explanation of this in the Dragons of Atlantis Wiki. (Just google that and you'll find it).
In Dragons of Atlantis I find the Garrison to be very misleading its description is "Train and house your troops and weaponry in the Garrison. Higher level Garrisons accommodate stronger, better troops. More Garrisons increase training speed and queuing." I was just told by your customer service person Cathy B, that they only do the queuing and do not increase your production speed. Therefore are useless to have more then one if they don't increase the speed and or train multiple troop sets at a time.
they do, but no one has posted a excel sheet figuring out the specifics yet. Best way is to build one of a specific type of unit , note the time and hit cancel.
Each additional garrison does decrease the per unit building time. Though this amount is at most a few seconds it can overall decrease the total amount by quite a bit if you have a large number of garrisons.
Thank you for the comments that you have posted. I know the more garrisons you have do allow for multiple troops to be entered into the que, this is a noticeable feature and you can use the same garrison to set troops in the training que, 1 group for each garrison you have.
As for the original question, I checked further into this and they do boost training time by only a short amount.. which is crappy.. as for my question is directed completely to Dragons of Atlantis game, I am disappointed that the amount of boost for each troop you build is so small it make the extra garrisons only good for adding more troops to the que, but doesn't offer much advantage in speed..this boost should be much larger for each you build and a stacking boost as well.
Knowing this now I would only build 5 or 6 garrisons and more houses which offer a power boost and more population to create more troops.. hope this helps and was not confusing .....
Sorry but I had a little more to add to my response:
Adding a second garrison is a quest so you will receive rewards for building a second and the panel for garrisons states that having multiple will speed up the training process of each group of units. One garrison at higher level increases training speed and the types of units you can train. Multiple garrisons will also speed up training, allow you to create a queue but doesn't appear to affect what units you can create.
I do not know if you've figured it out for yourself but even if you did I thought that someone else in the future might like to know the answer. My answer comes from having built a second one myself.
Multiple garrisons allow you to create a queue for training units. In an RPG like Command and Conquer having multiple training facilities would allow you to fully train different units at the same time. But in Dragons of Atlantis it just adds another group of units to the queue. Multiple groups will not train at the same time but it will allow you to select the next group you want trained and they will automatically begin training once your first group is finished.
This would be useful for when you're getting off your computer as the following groups will automatically start training without you having to manually get training started. So far I have only the second garrison which allows one group to be queued. I am assuming that a third garrison would allow you to add a second group to the queue and therefore select three groups to be trained.
Just note that you will have to start each group from a different garrison as far as I can tell. I started training a group of units from my first garrison and then followed the same process at my second garrison and then when you view what units you are training you will see your queue.
Hope this helps.
I've also wondered this. I think they're supposed to shorten the training time of units (each new garrison and each new level), but I'm not sure. Surprised no one has answered yet.
