Prosperity allows a large amount of gold to be amassed quickly and early. It can be used early on to speed up an early Classical Age rush, later in the Classical Age, and possibly in the Heroic Age. In later Ages, plenty of resources are available, so the power's effect will be diminished. To make the most of Prosperity, players should research Pickaxe or even Shaft Mine to increase their Laborers' carry capacity and have their Pharaoh empower the drop site. In team games, Prosperity works well with Thor's Dwarven Mine, and in this case it might be better to save it for use in later Ages.
