We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Uses[edit | edit source]
Gold is consumed by the following actions:
- Paying hero salaries (done automatically)
- Researching technologies
- Buying and selling resources at the Marketplace
- Praying, to increase population and prestige
- Blessing, to obtain food
- Healing troops in the rally spot
- Rewarding heroes to increase their loyalty
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
Gold is not produced by a specific Resource Field, but is instead obtained by taxing the population. The player can set a specific Tax Rate, which then gives gold in relation to the amount of population available in the city. Note that the higher the tax rate is, the lower the loyalty in that city will be, leading to loss of population. Gold can also be won on the Wheel of Fortune, or farming NPCs for resources. If done correctly, large amounts of gold can also be acquired by trading with resource (i.e. buying a resource for a cheap price and selling it for a more expensive price).
