Wednesday, June 18, 2014 — Today, InnoGames ancient strategy game Grepolis today started its summer event Hephaestus Forge. The legendary blacksmith of the Greek gods offers some valuable treasure chests but he will only give them away in exchange for divine orbs. Those orbs can be found by the Grepolis population when the player performs regular tasks like city building, research or recruitment. The more active the players are, the higher their chance is to find some orbs. However the amount of orbs that can found on one day is limited to ten.
Next to the items in those chests, the players can also receive further exclusive rewards in the course of the event. Having spent 40 orbs will give them the 14 days of a priestess support on regular worlds – which means a 50 percent higher favor production in the temples – or 30 Coins of Wisdom and 45 Coins of War on worlds with heroes enabled. After 85 divine orbs, the player will either receive a whole culture level in order to take over new cities or the exclusive hero Jason.
Grepolis is a strategy game set in Ancient Greece. In the free browser-based title, players are tasked with building up a vast metropolis and uniting with other players to establish a powerful military and conquer far away islands. Grepolis is also available as a full mobile app for iOS and Android.
