Technologies Part II: Gokkholm
Another Friday, another showcase! Last week, we took a look at the human technologies
, and today we will be doing the second part of the three-part series by introducing the technologies of the Orcs of Gokkholm! So sit back and read all about what the orcs have up their sleeves!
From your Home City, techs can be researched from your buildings and cost resources and Influence
. Once purchased, these techs will upgrade instantly and benefit your army by unlocking new units and defenses or with increased efficiency - which can often benefit your army or economy much more than whipping out several new battalions - and at half the cost.
Keep in mind that, for the most part, the upgrades listed are categories which include several different individual techs, and some techs are still being implemented. Nevertheless, you can get a good sense of the scale of the game and micromanagement through these many upgrades!
