Forge Points (FP) are one of the main resources in the game. Forge points are mainly used to research technologies and upgrade Great Buildings.
Players receive one forge point every hour. Players stop receiving hourly forge points when ten or more forge points sit unused in the forge points bar located in the top center of the screen. However it is possible to receive forge points from other sources and exceed the ten forge point limit. If there is 100 or more forge points in the bar then players are unable to collect from buildings that produce forge points.

Uses
- Researching any technology in the tech-tree requires a number of forge points to be spent before it can be unlocked. Most technologies also require some other type of resources. The average forge point cost of technologies rises with the ages.
- Building and leveling a Great Building requires a certain number of forge points to be spent for each level. Each higher level requires more forge points. A player may contribute forge points to other players' Great Buildings.
- Accepting a trade with a player outside your guild (from a neighbor or a friend) costs 1 forge point. Only the player that accepts the offer pays the fee, the player that created the trade offer does not.
- Some quests and Daily Challenges require players to spend forge points or to contribute to a Great Building.
Getting Forge Points
Hourly Free
Players will receive 1 forge point every hour up to a maximum of ten. Should players forge points count reach ten, the timer will stop. It will start again (with the same time left on the counter as when it stopped) once the player has 9 or fewer forge points, therefore it is highly recommended to spend the forge points as often as possible.
Buying Forge Points
See also: Forge Point Purchase Cost Formula
It is possible to buy forge points with either coins or diamonds. It costs 50 diamonds for each forge point.
When buying with coins the first forge point will cost 200 coins, and thereafter the price will increase by increments of 50 coins per point. In the picture, the cost of a forge point has risen to 11850 coins, from the original 200.
At lower eras like Bronze Age / Iron Age, it might not be worth it to buy forge points for coins, as the prices quickly become abnormal. At this level it is best to wait for the hourly forge points.
Special Buildings
Many special buildings produce forge points. Some produce them automatically and must be collected after certain amount of time (usually 24 hours). Some special production buildings give forge points as an option to be produced in a similar manner as regular production buildings produce supplies.
The amount of forge points produced in special buildings does not depend on the age of the building. Therefore the forge point production can not be increase by advancing to the higher age with the Renovation Kit or the One Up Kit.
Great Buildings
Many of the Great Buildings also produce forge points. The amount of forge points depends on the level of the Great Building. Those buildings are listed below:
Building | Produces | |
---|---|---|
Hagia Sophia | Provides 1 forge point at level 1 and 6 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 3 forge points are gained with every five levels on average. | |
Castel del Monte | Provides 1 forge point at level 1 and 6 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 3 forge points are gained with every five levels on average. | |
Cape Canaveral | Provides 2 forge point at level 1 and 10 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 1 forge point is gained with each level. | |
Innovation Tower | Provides 1 forge point at level 1 and 6 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 3 forge points are gained with every five levels on average. | |
Arctic Orangery | Provides 2 forge point at level 1 and 10 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 1 forge point is gained with each level. | |
The Kraken | Provides 1 forge point at level 1 and 8 forge points at level 10. After level 10 additional 4 forge point is gained with every five levels on average. | |
Himeji Castle | Has the Chance to provide Spoils of War for the first couple battles won after the GB was collected. Each Spoils of War has the chance to give 10 forge points, 50 forge points, 200 forge points into the bar or something else entirely. Increasing the level of this GB increases the number of chances and the chance for Spoils of War to occur. | |
Space Carrier | Has the Chance to provide Diplomatic Gifts for the first couple successful negotiations after the GB was collected. Each Diplomatic Gifts has the chance to give 10 forge points, 50 forge points, 200 forge points into the bar or something else entirely. Increasing the level of this GB increases the number of chances and the chance for Diplomatic Gifts to occur. |
Contributing to Great Buildings
Donating to other players Great Buildings might result the donating party to receive some forge points pack. It is possible to earn profits, especially with The Arc. Forge points are rewarded in return as forge point packages.
Quests
Forge points can be earned from completing quests. Some quests have forge points as a reward, while others have a random reward with a chance of it being forge points (for example recurring quests). Quests reward forge point packages.
Daily Challenges also have a chance of rewarding forge points.
Guild Expedition
Guild Expeditions have forge points as one of the possible rewards in many chests. There is a 13% chance of receiving 20 forge points from a common Silver Relic and 18% chance of receiving 100 forge points from a uncommon Gold Relic.
Events
Some events have forge points as one of the possible rewards.
Incidents
Uncommon incidents have a 15% chance of rewarding 2 forge points and rare incidents have a chance to reward 5 forge points.
Visiting Taverns
Visiting other players Friends Taverns might reward the visitor with 1 forge point. The chance of receiving a forge point depends on the table cloth of the host tavern.
Plundering
Plundering other players from the neighborhood can also reward the plunderer with forge points if the plundered building produces them. In need of forge points the player may target those buildings purposefully.
Forge Point Packages
Forge point packages come in three sizes. They are obtained through completing quests and by reaching the top ranks while contributing to other players Great Buildings. Note that those packages are placed into the inventory not to the forge points bar and can be used any time the player desires.
Most of the rewards (for example from the Daily Challenges or the Guild Expeditions) still give forge points, not forge point packages, which are placed to the forge point bar the moment they are acquired.
Item | Value | |
---|---|---|
Small Forge Point Package | 2 | |
Medium Forge Point Package | 5 | |
Large Forge Point Package | 10 |
Forge Point Purchase Cost Formula
To determine how much the purchase of forge points will cost in terms of coins, use the formulas:
- Y = XZ + 50(X(X - 1)/2)
Or
- Y = 25X^{2} + (Z - 25)X
Where:
- Y - total cost in coins
- X - how many forge points are bought
- Z - the initial cost of the first forge point.
The equations are built upon the fact that the cost of a forge point increases by 50 coins with every purchase. For example to buy 23 forge points (X) with the starting cost of 3000 coins (Z):
- Y = 23 Ć 3000 + 50(23 Ć (23 - 1) / 2)
- Y = 81,650 coins.
Or
- Y = 25 Ć 23^{2} + (3000 - 25) Ć 23
- Y = 81,650 coins
Alternatively, if you want to see how many FP you can buy with a given amount of coins, use the following formula:
- X = (25 - Z + sqrt{(25 - Z)^{2} + 100Y})/50
This will usually give you a decimal number, just round down to see the maximum number of FP you can buy
