Maybe if I post this here... when people search for their church question before asking it (like they all do:icon_rolleyes they'll see it first. Church Info Church Belief Radius: Level 1: 4 fields in every direction Level 2: 6 fields in every direction Level 3: 8 fields in every direction Church Cost Structure: Level 1: 16.000 wood - 20.000 clay - 5.000 iron - 5.000 population Level 2: 20.160 wood - 25.600 clay - 6.300 iron - 2.750 population(additional) Level 3: 25.402 wood - 32.768 clay - 7.938 iron - 4.263 population(additional) Church Build Time Factor: Level 1 = 5:40:00 Level 2 = 6:48:00 Level 3 = 8:09:36 The actual build time is calculated by the following formula: ([build time factor] * 1.05^(-[level of the village headquarters])) / [world speed] Church Point Values: Level 1: 10 points Level 2: 2 points Level 3: 2 points Church Build Requirements: Level 5 Headquarters and whatever farm level required to hold the population. Church Destruction: Churches can be catapulted but they take significantly more catapults to drop a level than normal buildings. It takes 400 catapults to destroy a lvl 1 church(Please confirm?) 167 to take lvl 2 to lvl 1(Please confirm?) and 125 to take lvl 3 to lvl 2(Please confirm?) Or 600 to take lvl 3 down completely. (Please confirm?) This is with against a empty, wall-less village with 0% luck, no morale penalty and religious attackers (religion makes no difference to the defence of target buildings) "When you noble a village the church 'flies away'" - Morthy Church Effect: All villages that are not contained within a church radius will have all troops' defensive and attack power reduced to 50%. This means that you can attack outside your church's radius, as long as the attacking village is inside it. Defending troops take the church effect of the village/person they are defending. Exception: There is an exception to the above setup/rules. The very first church that you start with will be a church that has a 6 field radius and is 10 points. This church cannot be upgraded at any point. In addition, the original church can't be damaged by catapults. EDIT(s): Yes you can demolish your first church. However it would be a huge waste. As when you build it back, it will still just be the same 'first (non-upgradable) church'. You can move it to another village if you have no other churches. If you lose your first church, you can rebuild it if you have no other churches. Churches only affect your own villages, not allies, not others. Only yours. This church is a different one to the one that built priests on the early German servers. Barbs/Bonus will be affected by churches (I.E spiking villages) - This changed during one update, not sure which. All calculations of religion will be done at landing time. Having religion/belief at two or more has no effect. It’s just to inform you that your village is under the effect of two churches, you receive no extra bonus for it. First churches take less than 15minutes to build at any level HQ. (Please confirm?) Trying to edit stuff that has changed. I have been away for nearly 2 years from playing. Will try to get updated as w63 has just been released.
