    Village school or floating residences?

    The last golden door of the summer event is a choice between a village school or two floating residences. I can see the advantages of both but am having trouble deciding. Right now I would prefer the residences (my current school, which is a huge help, is enough for now) but am not sure whether the school may be more helpful long term. What do you think is more useful and/or easier to replace?

    consider that both are limited items. do you have the max of one or both already?

    if u do a lot of advs, go with the school to save bread. there are many alternate ways to increase pop cap.
    if you need pop and your island is already full, go with floaters.

    If you adventure often, you may want to go for the schools. I don't adventure nearly often as I used to, so I'm going to go for the floaters; having settlers just sitting around doing nothing isn't an issue for me since I don't crank troops through my barracks the way I used to.

    To solve this problem: do you want a bigger or more efficient e-....
    More of the same "new" content with a different bow? I will give more of the "same" towards my gem accumulation.

    Not maxed on either yet, still have three left each from the gem shop. I adventure infrequently, enough that my population growth and weapon production allow, while my population cap is basically enough of a buffer to be able to produce the troops I need and have about 100 left. I don't have any real need for either currently. I'm leaning toward the floaters because I'm not sure I will end up adventuring too much more.

    School, not schools.
    1 school versus 2 floaters?

    IF they are sell able i would go schools no matter what. Even if you have more troops than you need, schools still cut down on what you need to make to sustain that. Thus freeing resources to trade for what you cant make such as granite.

    Yes, 1 school. That "s" was a typo. What can I say -- it was late.
