|This article is about the building in Age of Empires III. For the building in other games of the series, see Dock.|
|“||Builds and upgrades Fishing Boats and warships. Repairs nearby ships.||”|
The Dock's ship repair ability works similarly to the Field Hospital for land units. However, the Dock will only repair a single ship at a time and ships with high hit points (e.g. Frigate) will obviously take longer.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
Attack[edit | edit source]
- Note: The attack animation appears to be a rifle shot, thus ranged damage, however it is actually siege damage that ignores a ships ranged resistance.
The total attack of a Dock are calculated on the following formula:
Where A is the total attack, B is the Dock base attack, and G is the number of Fishing Boats garrisoned in the Dock.
With 10 Fishing Boats garrisoned, the Advanced Docks card and the Heated Shot improvement, the Dock will have 375 attack, and if the TEAM Coastal Defenses card is sent, it can deal 937.5 damage to ships when it is attacked by one, which is a significant investment that an enemy can merely ignore, or counter with longer range ships (e.g. Frigates or Tlaloc Canoes).
The Haudenosaunee can further boost the damage by +185% via Town Ceremony at the Community Plaza) to 2,671.875 damage. The Aztecs cannot research heated shot, but with Warrior Priests at the Plaza, Town Ceremony will increase the damage by +277%, allowing for 1,413.75 damage total.

History[edit | edit source]
|“||Docks provide places for ships to load and unload passengers and goods. A group of docks is referred to as a dockyard. Towns often grow up around docks because they provide a convenient means of trade. This trend is evident in the Northeast section of the United States.||”|
