Stronghold is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Forgotten that is unique to the Celts and can be researched at the Castle. Once researched, Castles and Towers fire 25% faster.

Strategy Edit

With Strongholds, the mediocre defensive capabilities of Celts become much stronger. Unfortunately, most of the troops who dare besiege a Castle are already either virtually immune to arrow fire, or simply outrange the Castle. Nevertheless, Stronghold is generally a worthwhile technology. It is especially strong against ships, since Celts also get Heated Shot.

Team bonuses Edit

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