Rise of Cultures Wiki
Goods are produced in Workshops and needed for Research, construction and upgrades.


Important: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary Goods
The game automatically assign a random combination for Workshops that determines which goods will become the Primary goods for the player. It's important to know this information later in the game and to understand data in the wiki. It is to encourage trades and community activity.

To find out which goods are Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary, check the Research tree to see the order in which they appear.

In the Bronze Age research tree, if Wool is the first technology then the Tailor is the Primary Workshop.
If Alabaster Idol is the first technology then the Stone Mason is the Primary Workshop.
If Bronze Work is the first technology then the Artisan is the Primary Workshop.
The Primary Workshop can have more than one building, the other Workshops can only have one building.

Once a player gets to Byzantine Era, players get 3 new Workshops but the same mechanic is applied. The first technology will determine the Primary Workshop which allows for more than one building.

This mechanic does not apply to the Workshops and goods of Allied Cultures (Egypt, China, Maya, etc)

Players will also need to know the Age in which the goods are produced which are often written in abbrevations.
If no Age is added to the description (usually for event quests) it will be for the player's current Age.
The wiki will provide mouse-over text (tooltip) for the goods to help players understand which goods are available.

Example (mouse-over the text)
[Primary BA] 10
[Secondary ME] 20
[Tertiary CG] 30
If a player's Primary is Artisan, Secondary is Tailor, and Tertiary is Stone Mason.
The required goods are:
10x Bronze Bracelet (Artisan, Bronze Age)
20x Linen Shirt (Tailor, Minoan Era)
30x Column (Stone Mason, Classic Greece)
