Wood is a important resource used throughout the Age of Empires series, including Age of Mythology. It is most often required for buildings or training ranged units and is usually acquired by felling trees.
Methods to obtain Wood Edit
Wood can be collected by the following methods. The best way to acquire wood is by cutting down trees, since it takes much less time to gather it.
Forestry EditTrees are abundant on almost every map found in the game, including arid ones. Major forests can easily be located and cut down, both supplying wood for new buildings and clearing land to build on.
Gold can be traded for Wood at the Market. The more Wood the player buys, the more expensive it gets. In Age of Empires and Age of Empires III, the market also contains essential upgrades that can increase the speed of wood collecting from chopping down trees.
Tribute can be an effective way to obtain wood, but is not highly recommended. Occasionally, other players may tribute you Wood, although it is more likely you will receive Gold.
Factory (Age of Empires III only) Edit
Factories can be set to produce an infinite supply of Wood, as well as Food and Coin. Factories can only be constructed by the Factory wagon sent by the "Factory" card. which is available in the Industrial Age or later. The Chinese can build the Porcelain Tower as a Wonder to advance in Age. The Wonder can generate wood like a factory as well as coin, food and a combination.
