Mafia City – Farming Guide – For Beginners & Advanced Players

In order to make rapid progress in the game without spending you will need to have farm accounts. Farm accounts will help you get resources much faster which will enable you to keep both your building queues and your investment queue busy at all times.

This post is going to tell you everything from the basics of setting up farm accounts to more advanced stuff like how to upgrade and use these accounts to get the most out of them. You can take a look at this video if you don’t want to read the entire post:

 

1. Setting up your farm

In order to create a farm account, you will have to start a new game. To do that, click on your avatar at the top left of the screen. Then go to settings (bottom right). Then select Account. Finally select ‘Start a new game’. HOWEVER, BEFORE YOU START A NEW GAME, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CURRENT ACCOUNT IS BOUND TO GOOGLE PLAY OF FACEBOOK OTHERWISE YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR PROGRESS. Also, before you start a new game make sure you know which city you are in. This will make it easier for you to teleport your farm account to the city in which your main account is.

Once you start a new game, you’ll be asked to build and upgrade a few buildings and train a few troops. Once you finish doing those tasks make sure you bind this account immediately to a google play or facebook account that is different from the one you bound to your main. To bind, go to Settings –> Account –> Bind Google.

Once you’re done binding your account, you will have to teleport to the city in which your main account is in. To do this, select the map option that you can find towards the bottom left of the city map. Once you do this you will find the miniature city map, select the globe option which can be found at the bottom left. This will take you to the world map. From here, you will be able to move to the city in which your main account is.

Once you move to your original city join your main clan or farm clan & start upgrading your farm account immediately. You can easily get it to mansion level 6 or even 7 in one day. Make good use of all of your speed ups and don’t hoard them as you will have to level up your farm to Mansion level 15 as soon as possible.

2. Leader Skills

You should have 3 different types of farms – Cash, Cargo and Arms. Depending upon the type you can choose to invest your skill points in different growth skills. For example, in case of your cargo farms, you would want to invest your skill points in all cargo skills & in case of your cash farms, you’ll want to invest them in cash skills.

I wouldn’t recommend creating separate farms for metal mainly because the skill tree only allows you to choose between cash, cargo and arms. To unlock metal skills you will need to get your farms to level 31 which is very difficult to achieve on your farms. So, it’s better to farm Metal as your secondary resource on all 3 types of farms. (I’ll go into the details when we discuss Robbing)

3. Babes

For your farm accounts, you should unlock all resource production skills, troop load skills, single crew training increase skills, hospital capacity increase skills and the advance gem making skill. You don’t really need to max out all the babes in your farms to unlock these skills. Here’s a list of babes along with the recommended favor that you should get them to:

Diana (180 favor): Getting Diana to 180 favor will give you all her resource production skills and Troop load skills. The remaining skills are not very useful for your farm account so it doesn’t make a lot of sense to upgrade her beyond 180 favor.

Mai Hanano (300 favor): Getting Mai to 300 favor will increase your training size by 50 and it also unlocks the advance gem making skill which will allow you to rob green quality gems at the lapidary complex. With the advance gem making skill unlocked you won’t stop robbing gems even if you are offline for more than a day (if you have 6 gem making slots). The remaining skills are mainly battle skills and are of no use to your farms.

Grace (1000 favor): Grace is the only babe that you should max out on your farm accounts. Her first 2 skills increase the hospital capacity by 3000 & her last 3 skills increase the single training size by 150 and troop load by 10%

Catherine (270 favor): Catherine should be upgraded only upto 270 favor to increase the hospital capacity by 5000. All her other skills are battle skills and are not useful for your farms.

Karina (620 favor): Upgrading Karina to 620 favor is enough to unlock all her resource production skills. All her remaining skills are battle skills.

4. Equipment

Just like babes, you don’t really want to get battle equipment. I would recommend getting equipment that gives you more hospital capacity, more troop load and in case of your cash farms, more cash production. Again, since it is your farm account, you don’t really want equip any equipment beyond blue quality. This is mainly because the equipment that give good buffs are usually high level ones & it will take you ages to get high level purple or higher quality equipment. So just stick with blue.

5. Investment

Depending upon your farm type you should invest in resource production and robbing speed of your primary resource (cash, cargo or arms, as the case may be).

For all your farms you should invest in the following: Troop load (Transporter), Hospital Capacity (Hospital Expansion), Healing Speed (Medical Training), Training Size (Recruitment Mobilization), Durability (Wall Reinforcement), Gem Making speed (Gem Making Speedup)

Obviously, you would also want to invest in crime ops crew as well when your mansion reaches level 6, level 11 and level 20 to unlock extra marches which will allow you to rob more resources. If you’re done with the investments mentioned above then you can also invest in troop upkeep, other equipment properties and metal production & robbing speed.

6. Roadster

‘Tidal Wave’ is probably the best roadster for your farm accounts as it gives you a 40% increase in resource production and a 10% increase in resource robbing speed. However, it costs a total of 8736 normal points which is a lot to get on your farm accounts so I wouldn’t recommend getting it.

The ‘Bullet’ (The first roadster that you get in the game) gives you a 5% resource production boost and a 2% cash robbing speed boost which is pretty good. However, if you can get 31 more normal points on your farms, you’ll be able to equip the 2nd roadster ‘Mr. Freeze’ which gives you a 10% resource production increase and a 2% robbing speed increase. Which is a little better than Bullet.

7. Buildings and Troops

As I mentioned earlier, you want to get your farms to Mansion 15 as soon as possible so that you can start farming metal as well on all of them. So try to rush your Mansion and get there as soon as possible. Don’t waste your time upgrading all the buildings. The main buildings that you would want to focus on for your farms are the Mansion, the Wall, the Invest Center, the Hospitals, The Resource production buildings (for your primary resource and for metal) and the black market. Also, if your farms are in the clan that your main account is in then you would want to upgrade the clan club as well so that you can reinforce your farms in case they get attacked.

Initially you will want to have 8 clubs so that you can train a lot of troops. Make sure you get these clubs to level 3 at least initially to train more troops (you’ll be able to get them to level 4 without having to wait once you reach VIP 4).

You should only train Tier 2 vehicles on your farm accounts and no other troops. Tier 2 vehicles have a low training cost, low upkeep and a very high load which makes them ideal for robbing resources. If you have the ‘Transporter I’ property at level 10 (15% increase in troop load) and Diana at 180 favor (5% increase in troop load). It should only take 16,500 T2 vehicles to completely rob a normal level 7 resource point. So, in case you have 5 marches. You would only need to have 82,500 T2 vehicles to rob 5 level 7 resource points. Once you train 82,500 T2 vehicles & have a hospital capacity of at least 82,500 (having 8 level 15 hospitals, Hospital Expansion I property at level 10 & babe grace at 120 favor will give you a hospital capacity of 83,000) you can get rid of your clubs. Just keep one club in case you need to upgrade it for any quest. Now you will be able to build more smelters which will allow your farms to produce more metal.

8. Robbing

It is hard to increase the metal robbing speed mainly because unlocking the metal robbing skills require a very high level (level 31). Also, the cost of investing in the metal robbing speed property is high.

The best way to equalize the metal robbing speed with the robbing speed of your primary resource is to rob metal when the ‘Getaway Drivers’ skill is active which doubles the resource robbing speed for 2 hours. This skill has a cooldown of 20 hours so you can use it at least once everyday. If you login to your farms 4 times a day, you can do metal one time with the skill activated and your primary resource 3 times.

If you have 3 farms, 1 cash farm, 1 cargo farm & 1 arms farm, you will be farming metal one time per day on each of the 3 farms. And you’ll be farming cash, cargo & arms 3 times each as well in their respective farms. This way you’re equalizing the amount of cash, cargo, arms and metal that you farm per day.

The only problem with this strategy is that whenever you need metal, you will have to farm all of your farms. Which is why I suggest that you only rob metal on your main account so that you won’t need metal a lot.

9. Donations

Make sure you donate as much as you can on your farm accounts as this will give you clan honor which you can use to purchase resource production buffs from the clan store. Using a resource production buff will double the resource production of a resource production building for 24 hours (It will double the base production as well as the bonus production that you get from skills and investment). Using these resource production buff items on high level resource production buildings will give you a lot more than what you donate. So I always recommend donating as many resources as you can on your farm accounts (there’s no need to donate gold, just resources).

10. Buff Stacking

The main reason why you want to have separate farms for cash, cargo and arms is because the leader skills are structured that way. If you have a general farm that farms all resources, you won’t be able to optimize the resource production and robbing speed because all your skill points will be distributed among all these 3 resources which will reduce your farms efficiency significantly – which means lower buffs and lower robbing speeds.

To show you how powerful the resource buffs can be let’s take a look at an example. I have a Mansion 15 cargo farm which has 10 cargo hubs. Each cargo hub produces a total of 6332 cargo per hour {2346 (Base production) + 3986 (Bonus production)}. So, all 10 hubs produce 63,320 cargo per hour or 1,519,680 cargo per day (or 2,152,880 cargo per day if I use the shakedown skill twice). Now, if I use a buff on a cargo hub, the production goes up to 12,664 cargo per hour {2346 (Base production) + 10,318 (Bonus production)}. So using 10 buffs will boost the production to 126,640 per hour or 3,039,360 cargo per day (or 4,305,760 cargo per day)

Now this is only the amount that one farm will produce from it’s resource production buildings. If you have enough troops to rob 3 cargo hubs on the map at a time and if you login 3 times on your farm per day to rob cargo, you’ll get (396,000*3*3) 3,564,000 cargo from robbing. Add that up with the resources produced and a Mansion 15 cargo farm will give you around 8M cargo per day when buffed and around 6M cargo per day when not buffed. That’s the amount that one farm will give you. If you have 4-5 such cargo farms like me, you’ll easily be able to get 24M to 40M cargo per day.

 

So, this was the entire farming guide. I hope this post will help you start farming or if you’re already using farm accounts I hope it will help you improve your farming technique.

    1. I don’t get it. So Now you have Account with high resource production. How do you transfer this to your main account?

    2. how can unlock the area with 5k check(mansion 10) ??every time i try it sending me to black market. i’m sure i have more than 5k but how i can see?

      1. When you open the black market, you should find the amount of checks that you have at the top right (below your resource amounts).

  1. That was a very helpful guide. Thank you bro.
    How do you manage the time for so many farms? 😛

    Which city do you play in?

    1. Glad the guide helped. How do you know that I have so many farms? You just need to login to your farms for 2 min each once to send troops out to rob. It gets pretty easy once you get used to it.
      I play in city 89.

  2. hello, in your video, you say it takes 8 hospitals and 8 clubs .. How do you do to have 10 hubs of goods then? Knowing that you have 5 counterfeit experts, 5 arms stores .. I know that once I hit 82,500 t2, I will remove 7 clubs out of 8 .. But the 10 hubs? Finally, can you tell me the number of building blocks that you will have? It will be simpler..

    And for the arms farms, how are you doing?
    Thanks to you

    1. By the time your Mansion reaches level 15. You should have 35 blocks to build hospitals, clubs and resource buildings. For your cargo farms you will have them set up something like this:
      Cargo Hub: 10
      Hospitals: 8 (If you have sufficient hospital capacity to accommodate all troops then you can get rid of a few hospitals and build Counterfeiters)
      Club: 8 (You will later demolish these and build Ammu-Nations)
      Smelter: 8
      Counterfeiter: 1

      And your arms farms will be set up something like this:
      Ammu-Nation: 8
      Hospitals: 8
      Club: 8
      Smelter: 8
      Cargo Hub: 2
      Counterfeiter: 1

      Also, if your get the troop load buff from your babes, investments & skills and if you can also get equipment that gives you troop load increase. You wouldn’t need 82,500 troops. You would need less than 70,000 troops. This will help you get rid of a few more hospitals as well.

        1. I suggest building 8 hospitals and 8 clubs since that’s the maximum number of those buildings you can build. The stronger your hospitals are the faster you can recover after getting zeroed & Clubs help with training speed.
          For the remaining building you could build any number of them depending on your resource requirements. Once you reach a high level you can keep one space empty for completing the building task daily which gives you 30 daily task points since at high levels the upgrades take long and are expensive & it gets really hard to finish all daily tasks.

          1. Hi Flavio. Can you give us the break down the ideal farm accounts when you have mansion lvl. 14 or 15 for each kind of type of farm? How many of each buildings? Unless you have said that already somewhere else. Thank you.

    1. Got to settings -> Account -> Switch account & then select the e-mail ID / facebook that you bound your main account to.

  3. How so i geht the ressources top my Main account. I have the problem that the ressources in my farm are safe.

  4. I did as you noted, I’m going up my mansion to level 15. For now, they are 13. I needed resources to start my mansion 19, only on the 10M that I had resources on my firm, I could loot only 4M .. Is this normal? What should I do to loot more than that?
    Thank you

    1. You can only loot resources that you get from robbing and from the resource production buildings. The resources that you get from resource boxes are safe & you can only use them on your farm account, they cannot be transferred to your main. Try robbing more resources & also upgrade the resource production buildings on your farm account to get more resources. Use the safe resources to upgrade buildings & for investments to make your farms more productive.

  5. I still have a question, sorry.
    I have small problems, I have 16M of goods to fly on my firm account .. Only the durability of my wall does not hold very strong. How can I remedy this?

    1. Sorry, was kinda busy lately so wasn’t able to reply.
      Your farm turf should be outside the territory of your main clan (preferably should be in the farm clan territory so that it gets resource production & robbing speed buffs) otherwise it will burn 8 times faster. Every attack on your farm account will add 30 minutes of burning time. While burning, it loses 1 durability every 18 seconds at normal speed & 1 durability every 2 seconds if it is in another clan’s territory. I would suggest only using only troops that have high load to attack your farms so that you get more resources per attack and that way you don’t have to attack your farm a lot & it won’t burn for long.
      If you still feel that your farms durability is getting low. Get the durability recovery item from the clan store for 100k clan honor. It’ll restore the durability to 100% immediately. Hope this helps.

      1. I can understand putting your farm in the same clan to protect them but how are you supposed to use the resources for your main then if you can’t rob them?

        1. Whenever you want to rob them you either kick your farms out of the clan or you leave the clan yourself and rob them.

  6. Hi, when i want to demolish my club, i cant coz only write :”Queue is full.” What that mean? How to demolish it ? Thanks.

    1. It means that your building queues are full and you either need to speed up a building or get the extra builder if you want to build.

  7. Thank you. Very impormative. I have 1 question. How to loot your farm account with the main account if it is on the same clan?

    1. There are 2 options. Either kick your farm account out of the clan and attack it or leave the clan yourself and attack your farm. If your farm account is inside your clan territory then I would suggest that you leave the clan instead of kicking your farm since your farm will lose a lot more durability if it burns in the main clan territory when its not in the main clan.

  8. For the moment, I have 3 troops who know how to harvest the maximum of resources. Should I continue building for once that I can reach the legions?

    1. It depends on which level troops you’re training. If you’re training t8 to t10 troops then it’s a good idea to train a lot of them because you’ll be using a lot of them in the long term. But if it’s t7 or lower then there’s no need to train a lot unless you do a lot of attacks.

  9. Hi Flavio.
    Is there another way to transfer resources from farm account to main, besides attacking? Which crews do you advise to do it?
    Thank you in advance.

    1. Attacking is the best way to transfer resources to your main account. If you don’t want to attack then you can join your farm clan with your main account and supply resources from your farm to your main using the supply option. This is gonna take longer than just attacking as you will not be able to send a lot of resources per march especially if you have a low level bootleg market. Also if you transfer resources this way you lose a certain percentage of resources as tax so I wouldn’t recommend using this method. Just send your farm troops out and attack your farms if you want to get their resources on your main account.
      The best crews for attacking your main account are the defensive vehicles since they have the highest load. I’ve trained a bunch of t2 vehicles just to empty farms. But if you don’t want to train low tier troops then you can go for t6 or t9 vehicles which are also defensive vehicles with very high load.

    1. Just make more accounts the same way you made your first farm. You’ll need to bind each account to a different email address though

  10. Hi, just started a farm off and after I attacked it a few times it ported itself into the desert- why and how can I stop that happening?

    1. When you click on the wall in your farm, you can see how much durability it has. Every time your farm is attacked, it burns for 30 minutes. The longer your farm burns, the more durability it loses. The moment this durability drops to 0, our farm will teleport itself to a random location.
      To avoid this you can either extinguish the fire right after you finish attacking your farm so that it stops losing durability.
      In case your farm account is located inside your main clan territory, you should move it out of there as it will burn 8 times faster there unless it is in your main clan when you attack it.
      You can get the durability recovery item from the clan store for 100k clan honor. This item will restore the durability back to the max amount once used. You can use this when your farm durability gets low.

  11. Hello sir!
    Your guide is so helpful and I really appreciate it!
    But can you give the details about the cash farm? How’s you manage cash farm while you have high upkeep?
    Please give the details about the building amount too
    Thanks 🙂

    1. If your main account has very high upkeep then you should keep all you cash inside your farms until you need it. Whenever you need cash you should hit your farms and get it on your main account & then use it immediately for whatever you need so that you don’t lose it because of upkeep

      1. I mean how to manage the cash farm sir. It’s easier to manage cargo and arms farm, but I have a problem in manage the cash farm due to the upkeep. Please give the details about it, including the amount of building and how to keep it from high upkeep. Thanks

    1. You need troops to rob resources from resource tiles. You can also have farms with only resource production buildings & no troops but having troops inside farms help get a lot more resources.

  12. Question:

    I play on my phone, and the app will only allow me to have two bound accounts. I would love to have more farms, but I am unsure how to create more accounts. Is there another platform that will allow multiple accounts?

    1. I’m assuming you are binding one account to your facebook & the other one to your google account since the game gives you these 2 options. If you want to create more accounts & bind them on the same phone you will have to create more google accounts first so you can bind your new farms to those accounts whenever you create them. When you’re about to bind your account, the game usually gives you a list of email addresses to choose from. If you don’t find the google account you want to bind in the list. You’ll have to select ‘Add Account’ and login to the newly created google account. Hope this helps & Sorry for the late reply.

  13. Hi sir ! Any chance of explaining what is the best way to use leader talents point ! I am at level 38 !
    Thanks in advance

    1. It depends on what you’re trying to achieve.
      If you’re trying to build fast then you should invest most of your skill points in growth.
      If you’re trying to attack people during the kill event then you should invest most (or all) of your skill points in growth.
      If you’re trying to grind experience quickly & train a lot of troops then you should invest in support.
      While dividing your skill points I would suggest getting all the 3 basic skills first in each skill tree (the beck & call skill, Shakedown skill & energetic skill) since getting each of these skills only cost 3 skill points. However, if you’re making temporary skill switches (for example, a 3 day switch for the kill event) then you should invest all those skill points into one skill tree.
      At level 38, you can unlock the rescue skill in the battle tree which is a very good skill for doing kill events, it converts all lost troops into wounded during a turf attack for 1 battle until your hospital is full & has an 8 hour cooldown. You should definitely get that skill during kill events it helps score a lot of points.

    1. Resources will become safe once they are within the limits of your vault capacity. Also, the resources that you get from resource items are all safe resources. You can’t plunder safe resources from your farms I would suggest that you use those farms to upgrade your farm buildings so that they start producing more resources.

  14. Hi

    Just one question: as we build the farms just for taking ressources for the main account, why do we need hospital?

    kind regards

    1. In case your farm account gets attacked by someone else during the kill event you’ll need a hospital to prevent your farm troops from getting killed. Also, sometimes while farming you might forget to send your troops out before attacking your farm. This could also cause unnecessary troop losses if you don’t have any hospitals.

    1. I will do a post on skills after I get svip 6 myself so that I can do skill switches for free & experiment with different skillsets which will help me understand different attributes better. I’m currently svip 3 & grinding for that 6 so it might take a while.

  15. I have over 3 million of each resource in my farm but when I attack it I only get with my main account I only get a little over 300. Why?

    1. You can only rob unsafe resources from your farms. The resources that you get from resource boxes are safe resources and cannot be robbed. The resources that you get from gathering and from resource buildings are unsafe. I’m assuming that the resources that 3M+ of each resource that you got are all safe resources.

  16. How do I power up my bulker,biker,vehicles and shooter attack & defend?
    What kind of troop is needed to make it look all bikes on the map?
    What to invest on to level up my troops health?
    So sorry for asking so many questions!
    I need help a lpt.! 😮

  17. I always appreciate it. Six farms have two ammunition, cargo, and cash. What else can I make if I want to make two more?

    1. Cargo is essential in the earlier stages of the game, Arms & metal in the later stages. If you’re above Mansion 26 you should consider making more Arm farms so you can farm arms and metal. If you’re below M26 then either cargo or arms would be good.

  18. Hi, i want to have a very good defense, what is the best way to use leader talent point ?
    And the best investment ?
    Thx for help !

    1. Investing your skillpoints in bulker defense / health will automatically increase your bulker defense. For the other troops, you should invest in bikers / vehicles. For investments, you should invest mainly in bulker health and defense to increase your defensive capabilities
