The honour reward for each achievement done is based on your rank. At prince you can receive hundreds of thousands of honour for achievements but at very low ranks you will receive just a few thousand. While you can’t avoid doing some achievements at the start of the game, try to do most of them at very high ranks so you get the biggest honour reward. If possible try to keep as many achievements until you reach crown prince rank. At prince you receive 200,000 honour for a diamond achievement, while at crown prince you receive 2,000,000. With such a high reward you can build villages much quicker because at crown prince villages get very expensive in terms of honour. Most of the achievements can be bypassed and you can still rank up very quickly.
