Sultans is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Forgotten that is unique to the Indians and can be researched at the Castle. Once researched, it increases the speed of all gold income (mining, trading, and Relics) by +10%.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sultans is a great addition to the Indians' game. Essentially, it makes Gold Miners work 10% faster, Trade Carts and Cogs generate 10% more gold per trip, and Relics generate gold ~17% faster (or +5 gold per minute in addition to default 30 gold per minute). For a civilization heavily reliant on gold intensive troops (Camel Riders, Hand Cannoneers, Bombard Cannons), Sultans hugely benefits the Indians and should be researched as soon as possible.

Sultans stacks with other bonuses. Hence, it is especially profitable when allied with an Aztec or Spanish player, which team bonuses increase the gold production of Relics and trade, respectively.

Team bonuses[edit | edit source]

  • A team containing Berbers: With Kasbah researched, researching Sultans is 25% faster.
