Age of Empires Series Wiki

Fervor is a technology in Age of Empires II that can be researched at the Monastery. Once researched, it increases the movement speed of Monks and Missionaries by 15%.

Fervor is available to all civilizations except for the Incas, Malay, and Vietnamese.


Fervor is useful for ensuring the Monks can move to locations of interest. These could be the enemy in a Monk rush, a friendly army, or Relics that need to be collected.

Researching Fervor is a must for the Bohemians as it also increases the speed of villagers.
