Food Food is a unique form of resource in Age of Empires Online that can be obtained by using Villagers to harvest Berry Bushes, Fish, Hunt, Herd, tend Farms, by Fishing using Fishing Boats, or by purchasing it using Gold at the Market. It is the primary resource for hiring most units.

Game Info Edit

Berry Bushes Edit

Berry Bushes can be found all over the map and provide a slow income of food in large amounts for players to gather using Villagers. Almost all maps begin with a few Berry Bushes near the Town Center. However, berry bushes are not recommended to be gathered in the late ages as farms can replace them and berry bushes do not provide unlimited food.

  • Default gathering rate = 0.9
  • Upgraded gathering rate = 1.08 [+20%]

Herding Edit

Goats and Cows can be found strewn about most maps as neutral creatures and when approached will change ownership and can be ordered and brought back to your Storehouse or Town Center. Villagers pathed on them will butcher them and proceed to gather a limited amount of food from them. Villagers who herd will gather food faster than farming and gathering berries, but is slower than gathering food from animals.

Unique to the Celtic civilization, herding animals may be spawned (up to a maximum of 25) for 20 wood per. These Sacred Deer may be harvested for the same food as any other deer.

  • Default gathering rate = 1.3
  • Upgraded gathering rate = 1.43

Hunting Edit

Various animals are found throughout the map and can be slain using military units or Villagers, Villagers can then gather limited food from their corpses. Huntable animals include Deer, Gazelle, Lions, Crocodiles, and Elephants. Hunting are one of the two methods that can be gathered the fastest.

  • Default gathering rate = 1.3
  • Upgraded gathering rate = 1.43

Farming Edit

Beginning in the Bronze Age, Villagers can construct Farms and then tend them to gather food infinitely. Gathering food from farms can be slow but expensive upgrades can make gathering food faster.

  • Default gathering rate = 0.9
  • Upgraded gathering rate = 0.99 [+10%] / 1.08 [+20%] / 1.17 [+30%]
    • Gathering speed depends on Civilizatnoi upgrades

Fishing Edit

Located in water various Fishing spots can be found, by tasking a Villager to the ones close to shore, or a Fishing Boat to the ones farther out, you can gather a limited amount of food. Fishing are faster to gather than any of these method except Hunting since they are both equal.

  • Default gathering rate = 1.0

Garden Edit

Unique to the Babylonian civilizatino, these buildings generate between 1 and 2.5 food per second (GardenerGerda Gardener Gerda and Cultivation Cultivation). A Babylonian player may have 4 in age 2, 8 in age 3, and a maximum of 12 in age 4.
