    Possible topics:
    Advice and opinions on how best to upgrade an empire after HQ4/Armory4/Hospital4?
    Advice on the best way to acquire crown jewels and blood diamonds (and other parts)?
    Advice or heads-up for the upgrades available after HQ5 is finished?
    Things to know and remember about the new building types available (Hardened Bunker, Spy Network, Nuclear Silo)?
    (Future upgrades and 3x4 grid buildings as well)

    Any help or advice is appreciated!

    Re: Empire Upgrades After HQ4?

    the key to upgrading your empire is upgrading your shadow broker, this significantly improves your drops after an EvE win and eventually eliminates concrete blocks and beams from even dropping. Lvl 3 will eliminate Blocks and Beams and drop everything from Composite Shreds up to a Blood Diamond. Lvl 4 will drop only Titanium Beam, Composite Shreds, Weapons Grade Plutonium, Spy Drones and Blood Diamonds.

    The key to upgrading shadow broker is doing daily achievements and getting your empire mates to do the same.

    Hardened Bunkers can be obtained prior to HQ lvl 5, you just need to fully upgrade everything in it and then you will be able to donate Titanium Beams.

    Once you get HQ Blood Cartel (Lvl 5) this opens donations to your warehouse for both the Research Lab and Nuclear Silo. Both of these take 300-400 Weapons Grade Plutonium and Spy Drones respectively.

      I think the key is mostly to have actives that donate daily.

        Bunkers or hq5, that is the question. Wether it is nobler in the mind to to suffer the long 3 billion dollar wait for hq 5, or to take arms and use a sea of blood diamond to manufacture t beams for bunkers, and by doing so shield them....

        You need blood diamonds for either, where best to spend them?

          Where do you all see the HB option? All I see is Nuclear Silo and Spy Network, which are both locked out.

            Hardened Bunkers are upgraded safehouses. In order to upgrade to HB you need a maximum upgraded safehouse first. The top option, which actually is called "safehouse" and it gives defense bonus for defenders in the respective building.

            I think Ogre described it best. Get ShadowBroker 3 through crown jewels (daily achievements) and the drops will start coming. Nuclear Silo and Tech Lab (research lab) can be constructed only after Blood Cartel is finished.

            @Bonsai: I recommend using the Blood Diamonds on HQ upgrade and not make items from 10parts plus 1 BD (or at least delay them until Blood Cartel is maxed on them). They drop way to rarely to barely create more than a couple of items.

              Shadow broker 4 for drops. Philantrpist to level 2 then bunkers After bunkers armor packs to max. IMO Hq lvl 5 isn't a must have as bunkers/packs the drops for lvl 5 armory / hosp are not released yet and the extra cash to donations most smaller players can't even do daily Jewels are easy enough with daily achv.
