|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Being the first Light Ships, Barks are used primarily for exploring the waters with their speed, and killing enemy Fishermen. As all ships of this type, they have a significant advantage against Fire Ships, but these only appear in the Classical Age, and by then Barks can upgrade to Dromons to fend them off better.
Unit Costs Edit
Unit production cost increases progressively with every Dock unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is of 1 Food for the second unit created, and grows exponentially from then on.
Upgrading this unit costs double the base cost of the unit it will upgrade to; this means that the upgrade to Dromon has a cost of 60 Food, 60 Timber. It's important to note, however, that these prices are the default standard, and actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies/ages, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
