The Reduce Upkeep item, when used, reduces Upkeep, which is the amount of food your Troops consume per hour. There are 25% and 50% varieties that last either 24 hours or 7 days. All can be purchased with Gems:
- Use this item to maintain positive Food production while constructing and upgrading farms if you still have an army in your Barrack.
- This will not be useful if you have a large number of high-tier Troops, as Upkeep will be too high to reduce enough to achieve positive Food production. High-grade Champion Armor would be required alongside this item.
