"Are you looking for a consumeable here and didn't find it? Try Empire Consumables"

Consumables are items that can only once be used - consumed - in quests only. They summon troops to fight on your side, reinforce your troops by granting them temporary bonuses, or even help your economy by spawning resources.

The major benefit of summoning troops via consumables is that they cost 0 population -- with their only limiting factor being the cool down time between consumption of consumables, and the cost of making/acquiring them.

How to obtain Edit

You can get consumables in the following ways:

  • They may be received as a reward for completing a quest.
  • They can be found in Treasure chests.
  • They can be bought in stores.
  • They can be crafted in a Crafting Hall through Recipes.
  • They can be traded with other players.

Storehouse Edit

While it's usefulness depends heavily on the situation for most civilizations, the Babylonian Civilization prizes these consumables far more than any other: Due to their lack of ability to build storehouses through any other means.

The rarity determines the cooldown

Information Edit

Ever wish you could see into an enemies base and drop a Bandit Fortress? Only to lament from needing line of sight to do so? That's where this consumable comes into play. Hidden Spy allows for an area to be revealed for a limited time, either giving your age 4 siege units the vision required to hit that target out of sight up a cliff, or allowing for a multitude of other things that cannot be performed into the fog of war.

List of Consumables: De/Buffs Edit

While these may seem a waste to the casual player, expert players know how powerful a temporary boost can be in the heat of battle.

Given the frequency of these types of consumables in Chests, they can have a significant impact in turning the tide of a battle. Use them wisely, as deciding when to use them will mean the difference between a victorious encounter or a route, due to the power of these consumables.

This consumable you can only get one set of 5 per civilization. They come with the civilization when created on the Project Celeste servers, after they are all used up -- they are gone for good.
