Stone is not a resource that is given to you at the start of the game - instead, you have to reach a Level 7 HQ before you are able to build your first Quarry, which is the building that generates Stone. It is required for high-level upgrades of buildings - basically as they become stronger they are required to be built out of stone.

Generating Stone

Stone is primarily generated with Quarries, which are opened up to you once your Headquarters reaches Level 7. Like the Sawmill and Iron Mine, you can only have one quarry, regardless of what level your Headquarters is. Below you will find all the information you need on which levels provide what amount of Stone to your empire.

Other ways to generate Stone

As well as Quarries, there are also a few other ways to ensure you have all the Stone you need to be able to upgrade your high-level buildings. First, try to liberate resource bases. If these have Quarries on, then you will receive a shipment of Stone alongside the Gold and whatever other boats visit your base on a regular basis.

Secondly, you earn Stone when you defeat an enemy who has it stored in his buildings. Once you are a high enough level, this should become a regular occurrence.

Finally, you can get Stone by digging up the few rocks that you will find around your base, for a small amount of Gold. Once these are gone, however, you will have to use other means to get your Stone.

Well at least I'm not alone....
Also stuck with no way to generate stone or defeat enemies with stone as they are too strong, much higher level...

Added 8th Mar 2015, ID #526160

Im level 15 and I am literally stuck. I can't get stone through destroying bases because it's giving me high level guys who I wouldn't even pass the beach. Or it gives me people that have no stone. Also I have had enough stone on two occasion but I keep getting raided and losing all of it. This feature is really stupid and needs to be fixed.

yeah, catch 22 without stone. I guess it forces you to attack islands with stone resources.

Added 28th Jan 2015, ID #508542

The vault can hold stone after a few upgrades. That's how you'll have to do it

How the hell do I upgrade my base to level 11.
I can't store enough stone to upgrade without
Upgrading my stone storage.
Which in turn, won't let me upgrade till I have a level 11
