Resource Overview History

Obsidian improves ranged units and defense structures.

Obsidian is one of 31 Rare Resources in the game and, if present on a map, available from the beginning. In the game it appears as a small cluster of silverish rocks with some grey/yellow/green ground. Like all rare resources on land, Obsidian can be gathered by sending a Merchant from the Market to the resource location. Obsidian provides the following benefits:

The gather rates from rare resources can be increased in various ways, as described in the main article. Also note, that Metal and Knowledge are not gathered before the Classical Age. Foot Archers lose this bonus, once they are upgraded to Musketeers. Ranged cavalry on the other hand keeps the attack bonus throughout the game, even when upgraded to armored vehicles such as Armored Cars etc. This is due to the fact, that these vehicles still belong to the Ranged Cavalry class.
