Enchantments are forged in the Magic Academy and gather the power of your non boosted Relics to provide some powerful enchantments for your buildings. By casting Enchantments you will not only take your production to a higher magical level but also give your city an enchanted environment.
To be able to cast Enchantments, you first need to create them! And to be able to start creating Enchantments you first need to research and build the Magic Academy. You will find this building at the end of Chapter I in the research tree.
|Hint: Enchantments require the use of Relics of non-boosted, non-sentient Goods, so to be able to create them you will also need to gain the corresponding Relics.|
Type of Enchantments
|Power of Provision||This type of Enchantment allows you to use the ancient power of your Relics to boost Workshops. All of your precious Supplies will then be produced with magical efficiency.
It is available for you at the end of Chapter I, as soon as you build the Magic Academy and it can be cast on Workshops.
|Ensorcelled Endowment||An Enchantment for every dear Elvenarian! It allows you to enchant your Cultural Buildings so that, when they receive Neighborly Help, your total Culture Bonus will increase directly 5%.
It is available at the end of Chapter I, as soon as you build the Magic Academy and it can be cast on Cultural Buildings.
The Enchantment will only be effective, if your Basic Cultural Bonus is at least 125%
|Magical Manufacturing||This type of Enchantment extracts the magical power of your Relics to directly boost the production of a Manufactory. By enchanting Manufactories you can increase the existing Relic Boosts or enable non boosted Manufactories to produce on a magical level. You can use more than one Enchantment per Manufactory and by doing so you will multiply its effect duration. This Enchantment does not work on Guest Race Manufactories
It is available at the end of Chapter III, as soon as you unlock the Magical Inspirations technology and it can be cast on Manufactories.
|Inspiring Meditation||This Enchantment increases the limit of Knowledge Points that can be gained during your absence. So you won't lose Knowledge Points even if you are away for more than 10 hours. You can only use one Enchantment at a time.
It is available at the end of Chapter III, as soon as you unlock the Magical Inspirations technology and it is automatically cast on the Knowledge Point Bar.
Enchantments Creation Process
To start creating Enchantments, open your Magic Academy and click the "create" button on the Enchantment you want to produce. You are then shown the Enchantment creation progress which tells you how long the Enchantment will take to be produced.
You can only create Enchantments if you have an available slot, otherwise you will have to wait until the first Enchantment is completed.You can always finish the Enchantment creation process instantly by paying Premium.
As soon as your Enchantment is ready, you can collect it from the Magic Academy by clicking on the icon that shows over the building. The Enchantment is then added to your inventory so that you can cast it.
|Hint:If by any chance you want to cancel a certain Enchantment creation progress you can click on the X icon and it will give you back the Relics you invested in the first place.|
The Enchantments Library is where you can choose which Enchantment you want to create. By placing your mouse over each one, you will be be able to see its effect, its duration and its availability (how many of that same type you have in your inventory).
Whenever you collect the produced Enchantments from the Magic Academy, you will see a red marker indicator on the Inventory icon. By clicking it you will see all your Enchantments and from here be able to cast them.
|1||Number of Enchantments of that type you have available and ready to be cast.|
|2||Information icon that allows you to see detailed information on the Enchantment.|
|3||Click on the Enchantment to cast 1 Enchantment at a time.|
|Hint:If you delete your Enchantments, you will not get any refunds and will lose all the invested Relics.|
When you enchant the building you will then see the magic powders shimmering around it, making your city look even more magical and beautiful!
There are several places where you can see the effect of Enchantments and the remaining time of their enchantment.
1. By hovering over the enchanted building.
2. Inside the building, on each production tooltip
3. Clicking the building while producing, on the current production tooltip.
The Enchantments effects take into consideration the total of your current production with bonuses! This means that your manufactories will produce +50% of your (regular production + relics boost). Same will happen with the workshops! The Enchantment will take into consideration your current culture boost to apply the +200% bonus.
As an example: A level 7 Elven workshop produces 223 supplies per hour with no culture bonus (100%). By increasing the culture bonus to 125% it will produce 279 supplies. If you enchant that workshop it will produce 837 supplies (+200% over the 279).
|Hint: You must remember that the Enchantment will only produce the effect for a certain amount of time! Meaning that if you cast an Enchantment and then its duration is over by the time you collect your resources, these will no longer have any bonus from the Enchantment. Furthermore, if any of the other bonus change (increase/decrease) while the Enchantment is active, the Enchantment effect will reflect it.|
By looking at the example above you will see that after using the Ensorcelled Endowment the total culture bonus increased directly 5%. So instead of the initial 125% of culture bonus, the city now has 130%. This will reflect on your coins and supplies production, so instead of the 279 supplies the level 7 workshop produced, it will now produce 290 supplies.
On the other hand, as soon as the Ensorcelled Endowment ends its duration, and as long as you keep your 125% culture bonus, the workshop will return to the 279. If you enchant the workshop it will produce 870 supplies instead of the 837 but the same principle is applied regarding Enchantments duration and effects.
The Inventory is also where your Instants are stored ready to be used. Instants are spells which can be used to get instant Supplies, instant Coins (both based on a % of your Storage Capacity), Time Reduction Instants (for productions, scouting, upgrading/building etc) and Ancient Knowledge (Ancient Wonder Research). There are some common ones like a Coin Instant for 10% of your Coin Capacity, but also epic ones that fill 100% at once.
You will be able to earn Instants throughout the game. So keep a look out for them. When you have earned one, you will be able to access it from here.
Time Reduction Instants will let you shorten the tiime of scouting, for instance.
If you click the Scouting button, it takes you to a window which allows you to reduce the scouting time. Then by clicking the spell, you reduce the time by the amount specified in the spell.
