It’s been quite a while since we have talked about the Wonders in DomiNations, and now it’s time to right the wrongs with the next piece that was not covered by our fansite: the best DomiNations wonder for the Gunpowder Age!
We have already covered and have advice for the best choice when it comes to Wonders for the Bronze Age, as well as the best wonder for Classical Age, so make sure to check them out too if you haven’t made it so far yet.
But if you did and you’re wondering which might be the Best DomiNations wonder for the Gunpowder Age, we’re here to help: and I have all the effects (with exact numbers) of the wonders. Please note: Numbers might change a bit in future updates if the developers decide to change the effect.
Slows down nearby invading armies and provides a health bonus to your own troops.
In actual numbers, it gives a 10% boost to the health of your troops and it slows down the incoming enemies by 40%, which makes it by far (at least in my opinion) the best choice when it comes to Gunpowder Age wonders.
I did choose the Versailles and I do believe that it’s the most amazing one out there, so it gets our top pick!
Increases loot stolen from attacks. Hire a free mercenary once per day.
In actual numbers, you get a 2% loot when raiding, so you won’t really feel that unless you get some big loot anyway. However, the free mercenary that you can get daily (a mercenary of your choice) is really good since that’s basically a few free trade goods per day. This is pretty huge and getting that Elephant does help!
So with all these effects and reasons I consider the Taj Mahal as the second best choice. It’s my opinion, you might consider it the best, though!
When defending, heals nearby defenders. Once a day you can collect a trade good of your choice.
In terms of actual numbers, the healing happens every 3 seconds and it heals 20% health to your units who are defending the base. It’s not insanely useful, actually, especially if you are an offensive, active player, so in my opinion, the Angkor Wat gets third place on our list.
Temple of Tikal
Increases trade goods capacity and refunds some of the resources stolen by opponents.
In actual numbers, you get back 3% of the resources that were looted from you and you can store 2 more trade goods. Really, this seems to be the most useless wonder ever. The 3% you get back doesn’t really make a difference and the extra storage for trade goods doesn’t help much either, so I would really stay away from the Temple of Tikal.
So there you have my opinion, then: the best wonder to choose for the Gunpowder Age is the Versailles. Do you agree?
