Goods (big).png

Goods are one of the most important resources, along with coins, supplies and forge points.

There are currently 94 types of goods available which are mostly produced in goods buildings. Goods buildings leverage good deposits on the campaign map to produce a larger volume of goods than would otherwise be produced without the deposit.

Uses

The primary uses for goods are:

Goods buildings

For the list of goods buildings see: Goods Buildings

Goods are produced in goods buildings. They are unlocked through advancing in the technology tree. Goods buildings are usually very costly and require a large amount of population to be built. Enthusiastic population does not enhance the production from the goods buildings.

The goods buildings function similarly to production buildings. However, the durations are different. Players must pay coins, supplies and from Modern Era forwards, unrefined goods in order to start producing goods from the goods buildings. For example, a Bronze Age goods building would require 100 coins and 100 supplies to work for 4 hours to produce the goods. There are no goods for Stone Age.

Each goods building requires a certain good deposit to reach its full production potential. Goods buildings which are not boosted by a proper good deposit will produce 5 times less goods in the same time for the same cost.

Good Deposits

Good deposits are found in specific provinces on the campaign map and are randomly generated by World and player. In order to use the good deposit players must first capture the province by either fighting any resistance or by negotiating with the current owner.

It is important to note that players receive two deposits per age thus all the goods buildings from the age can not be boosted for a single player. A good practice is to produce the goods that the player has the deposits for and then trade excess goods for the ones that player does not produce.

List of Goods

Each age introduces five new goods. The list is presented below:

Special Goods

Special Goods are goods that cannot be traded and that are acquired via special mechanics. Special goods are available in the Eras from Arctic Future onwards.

Getting Goods

Although the goods buildings are the main source of goods for most player, there are many other options to acquire goods.

Goods Rewards

There are several ways to earn goods as a reward. A reward can consist of one type of good, or a goods package. A goods package is a reward consisting of at least one of each of the goods from the player's or the building's current age. In Guild Expeditions it is possible to receive goods from the player's previous era as well.

Goods can be gained as a reward from the following sources:

Plundering

Players are able to gain goods for plundering other players goods buildings or special buildings.

Great Buildings

The following Great Buildings provide goods from the player's current era until the Progressive Era. From Modern Era onwards, twice the amount of goods is produced, but they are from 3 eras back ("unrefined" goods).

Each Spoils of War has the chance to give Goods 50 goods, Goods 125 goods, Goods 250 goods, Goods 500 goods or something else entirely. Increasing the level of this GB increases the number of chances and the chance for Spoils of War to occur.

Guild Goods

These are Guild Goods goods that are part of the the guild treasury. The player may donate goods from their own stockpile to the guild treasury.

Some Special Buildings and Great Buildings also produce guild goods.

Special Buildings

Guild Goods Guild goods produced by special buildings count as donated by the player and therefore may help resolve quests/tasks requesting goods donations to the treasury.

The following buildings may produce Guild Goods guild goods:

The goods donated to the treasury are of the building's age.

Upon collection of these special buildings, the player receives ranking points equivalent to donating the same amount of goods from the building's current era to the treasury.

Great Buildings

The following Great Buildings provide Guild Goods guild goods from the player's current era that are automatically transfered to the guild treasury - therefor these goods do not count towards donation quests/tasks. From Modern Era onwards, these buildings still produce goods from the players current age.

Upon collection of these great buildings, the player receives ranking points equivalent to donating the same amount of goods from your current era to the treasury.

Building Goods produced
Observatory.png Observatory Provides Goods 3 goods at level 1 and Goods 8 goods at level 10. After level 10 additional Goods 2 goods is gained with each level.

Trading Ratios

For more information see: Trading

From Bronze Age to Late Middle Ages the cost of producing goods is double the cost of the previous age. From Colonial Age and forward the ration is not 2:1 but changes from age to age. From the Modern Era to the Virtual Future players also need to pay goods from the previous eras to produce goods of the current era which makes the ratios even more complicated. From the Space Age Mars you need the respective age special good to produce the current era goods, which complicates it even more. Those ratios affect trading.

Ranking points

For more information see: Ranking System

Spending goods will increase the ranking of the player. Goods from higher ages give more ranking points than goods from lower ages.
