We have talked about the best wonder to choose for the Bronze Age in a previous article, and now it’s time to move forward and check out the best wonder for the Classical Age in DomiNations. In my opinion, the Bronze age is pretty obvious in terms of the best Wonder, but the Classical Age – not so much.
There are four options available in the game, just as always, and you can choose to build the Colosseum, Forbidden City, Notre Dame or the Terra Cotta Army for your civilization. And I must admit that they all seem to be pretty amazing and it’s difficult to make a choice!
But one has to be made, so let’s find out below the best wonder for the Classical Age in DomiNations!
Effect: Produces 8 defenders when you are attacked (large effect area) and also provides Strength of the Gladiator bonus that can be used once per day to increase the attack of your troops in battle. Also influenced by the Acropolis, if you have it.
Effect: Reduces the cost of Library Technologies and Unit Upgrade costs by 10%
Terra Cotta Army
Effect: Increases the hit points of Castles and Barracks in area of effect and allows you to summon the Terra Cotta Army once per day. You have all the details on this wonder in our dedicated article here.
Effect: It gives you bonus food once per day and acts as a second Town Center, making it more difficult for your enemy to gain 5 stars in battle against you
As you can see, these are all great wonders and it’s indeed difficult to choose just one. Personally, I consider the Forbidden City the weakest link here because it doesn’t help that much – just in the case of medal farming, and it will generally save you just one star when you are attacked.
The Notre Dame also works great because it saves you a ton of resources. 10% might not seem a lot early on, but eventually you will save tens of thousands of resources in upgrades. However, I would not go this route because resources can be earned easily by smart, active players.
I would really be tempted to say that the Colosseum is the best choice because of the boost you get once per day in attack (which might come really useful in future Alliance wars) and the extra defenders that you get when defending – even though you’ll generally get no more than two waves and it appears that the defenders are similar to your highest level Garrison.
I have no real information about the Terra Cotta Army and how strong it actually is. Does it upgrade with each age? Does it remain competitive in the End Game, in the later stages? I don’t know that yet and I am not really sure right now if I’d pick it, even though I’d really like to. However, I think I’ll stick to the Colosseum this time.
What do you think, though? Which is the best DomiNations wonder for the Classical Age?
