Nation Overview Strategic Overview CtW Information History

The Koreans are one of the 18 nations in the original Rise of Nations. They have the Power of Tradition, which is based on the fact that Korea during the Joseon Dynasty have deeply preserved their traditions to the point of isolating themselves from outside influence, giving them the moniker "Hermit Kingdom".

Power of Tradition Edit

  • Start with a free Temple and receive Religion upgrades for free.
  • Start with an extra 1 Citizen, receive 3 when you build your second City, and 5 for all future Cities.
  • Citizens repair buildings 50% faster. They may also build and repair buildings under attack without penalty (taking damage).
    • The 50% repair rate actually means that the time needed to repair is reduced by 50%. Thus, Korean Citizens repair twice as quickly as other Citizens.
  • Receive the Militia, Minuteman and Partisan upgrades immediately and for free, as soon as they become available (you need to own at least one Tower).
  • Towers are 33% cheaper.

Unique units Edit

The Korean unique Foot Archer line have +1 attack, +7 HP, and +1 armor compared to the standard units they replace.

The Flaming Arrow fires more slowly than the Catapult it replaces (60 frames cooldown instead of 55). The Heavy Flaming Arrows fires more quickly than the Trebuchet it replaces (60 frames cooldown instead of 65). Both have faster projectiles and their accuracies are less attenuated by distance. Additionally, both have a 35% damage bonus against buildings, on top of the other bonuses they receive as Artillery weapons.
