Primary resources are any of the resources from the first two columns of the game interface (Wood, Clay, Iron, Stone, Food, Gold, Mana, and Research). They are the complement of the secondary resources. The exclusively common feature of all primary resources is that they all are automatically gained at an hourly rate, which is not always necessarily positive. Resource quantities will not, however, fall below zero, though penalties will apply for running out of food or gold. Many other qualities are found only in the primary resources, however.

Common Attributes

  • They are automatically harvested over time, at an hourly rate affected by various structures.
