Great buildings are legendary buildings you can build in your own city which is implemented in the update of Forge of Empire version of 0.22. Each Age offers 2 Great buildings the players can erect. Each great building has 10 levels. The higher the level, the more powerful the Great building bonus becomes.

All Blueprints can be viewed in the inventory menu which is located at the bottom left orange "inventory" icon of the screen. This is also where you can build the Great buildings.

You can acquire the 9 blueprints in the following ways:

  1. Purchase any specific blueprint with diamonds in construction screen.
  2. Doing positive social interaction. For example, polish and motivate.
  3. Plunder buildings after attacking another player, but lower find rate than motivating/polishing. 
  4. Helping in construction of another great building of other player by donating forge point, the blueprints will be received at the end construction phase of this building. See here.

The Blueprint will belong to the great building of the age same as the building that player just polished or motivated or plundered.


To place the great building, you will first have to acquire the 9 separate blueprints and also the required goods of the building's age. However, the placed great building is level 0 and it does not give any bonus yet. See the next section.


The great building on level 0 is just a construction site and it won't build up itself. Players have to use an amount of forge points to upgrade it. Once the building reaches level 1, it is built and start to give out bonuses but still can be upgraded with increasing bonuses to a maximum of level 10.

Details of the cost of forge points on levels can be found in the topic of each building.


The most important function of great building is the powerful bonuses that increase with the building's level. Depending on the building, you might get the following:

  • Military boost
Attack and defense bonus for units in attacking army, adds up with every great buildings with same bonus
  • Defense boost

Players who have great buildings have a "castle" icon on the social menu
