The Donkey Caravan is a Caravan in Age of Mythology that the Greeks use to trade between the Market and selected Town Center. Like all Caravan units, the Donkey Caravan travels back and forth between a player's Market and Town Center, or the Town Center of an ally, and generates gold for the player.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Players should build the Market in a safe corner of the map from where the Donkeys will travel to a Town Center of choice. The greater the distance of the trade route, the more gold will be generated. This is especially valuable later in the game when safe Gold Mines run out. Caravans can also trade with ally Town Centers and doing so generates 50% more gold than usual. Caravans may replace Villagers if too many are found idle once gold runs out but they cannot defend themselves from attackers and must be defended from raids.
Upgrades[edit | edit source]
