Couriers is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Forgotten that is unique to the Incas and can be researched at the Castle once the Imperial Age is reached. Once researched, it gives Kamayuks, Slingers, and Eagle Warriors +1/+2 armor.

Strategy Edit

Couriers is always worth getting, as it greatly increases the durability of all of the three Inca units who form the core of any well-organized Inca army.

Also in The Forgotten, where Couriers gives speed instead of armor, researching Couriers is a must, since it increases the fighting abilities of all affected units at a low cost.

Team bonuses Edit

  • A team containing Berbers: With Kasbah researched, researching Couriers is 25% faster.

ChangelogEdit

The ForgottenEdit

  • Couriers gives Eagles, Kamayuks, and Slingers +10% speed.

The African KingdomsEdit

  • Couriers now gives +1/+2 armor instead of +10% movement speed.

Trivia Edit

  • Prior to The African Kingdoms, Couriers gives additional speed to three different Incas units. This is probably inspired from chasquis, the runners in Inca Empire who were known for their ability to travel at long distance to deliver messages.[1]
