We mark this day: May 04, 2013.
People of the Wikia, we have completed everything about the alliances, except gears as I cannot find the stats in the Carthage gears sadly. However, everything else is done. Now, our next update is to update Northern Hold.Read more >
The Norse and Persia civilisations should be up-to-date. Unfortunately Persia's PvE stats may be incorrect, i only made sure the PvP stats were correct, and i didn't check all their technologies. You can be assured values in brackets ( ) are correct.
Since i was beginning to receive complaints about changing too much, i left most of the pages as they were before, modifying the stats only.
And that will be it from me.Read more >
You guessed it, this time its the Babylonian Civilisation! They should now be up to date, in stats at the very least. but this time that's not all i have to say.
There is a question that is bothering me, perhaps you can help me out - the Babylonian Stone Wall upgrade improves by 125% while the other civs have a 10% boost. This leaves the Babylonian Walls with 2250 Health, and other walls at 3000 Health. Is that true, or have I made a mistake? you can go to the wall page and put it down under 'Note'.
I am aware of the 1% Internet Rule and I assume there are some people at least reading these blogs, or at least using the updated pages. However don't be afraid to be the 9% and make a comment! Some of the comments are extremely old and it would be …Read more >
And now the Celtic civilization should be up-to-date as well! Except the Champion, which i will check later.
Discovered some interesting stuff, the Ram costs Wood and Gold in PvE but costs Wood and Food in PvP!
Some of the "overviews" aren't right but we'll fix them later. If you're wondering, the overview is being changed to what you see when you hover your mouse over the unit when you have the technology tree open.
Check out the General play page! Some good tips for PvP and PvE (but mostly PvP because most of PvP applies to PvE as well). Also if you see a mistake (spelling, incorrect stat etc), please do fix it up! It'll only take a moment and it can help everyone who uses this wiki. Believe it or not, the editer is actually very simple to …Read more >
I tried to edit the page of the Marathon Guard Spear to add links to some words like "gear", which is done on a lot of pages, but as soon as I hit the edit button, I can't see that specific line of text. It's just not there in the code. I'm confused.Read more >
Just like with Egypt, most if not all of the Greek Civilisation should be up-to-date now.
it would seem rams are much cheaper in PvP! I never knew that.
If you do use this site at all, feel free to participate in the polls. They (usually) provide valuable information, and can lead the wiki to the glory it deserves.Read more >
Just went through the entire Egypt Civilisation and have now updated the PvE stats and added a PvP stats where applicable. You may see this on some pages:
"PvP Values which are different are put in brackets ()."
Exactly what it says! Previous patches often changed only the PvP stats, and now they are put there in brackets. If there are no brackets, then it is the same in both PvE and PvP.
Enjoy the updated Egypt!

Community Highlight – Reviving the AoEO Fan Wikia
Hey, AoEO fans! It’s another Sunday and another, hopefully awesome, weekend with lots of great matches and successful quest completions is coming to an end. If you spent some time in the forums during the past few days, you may have noticed a thread that, I feel, deserves more attention.
ElitistBody841 posted a call for action to anyone out there who wants to contribute to the unofficial AoEO Wikia, a website that has a lot of very useful, but, unfortunately, partially outdated information. If you have some time to spare and feel that this handy conglomeration of information deserves a revival, go ahead and participate in its update!
Let’s hear it from ElitistBody841 hims…

Let us update and add the features in Age of Empires Online, so this wiki doesn't crumble to dust!Read more >
Future of Age of Empires Online
It is now time to discuss the future of Age of Empires Online. AOEO has finished its development phase, and now moves on into its support phase.
What does that mean?
It means that there will be no new content created for AOEO. There is a small amount of content still in the pipeline that will be released in the next few weeks, but that is all. No new features will be added. Most significantly, no new civilizations will be released; the six existing ones are the complete and final set.
However, nothing else changes for players, nothing that currently exists will be removed. You can still play everything you own, earn EP, and purchase any content you do not currently own. We will still …

Hi everybody, I am sad to inform you that I will be stepping down as an admin on this site but I think this is the best decision for myself and my fiancee at this time in my life. We moved into a new apartment and I'll be starting my new fulltime job soon so I won't have the proper time for this wiki. I've had a blast working with all of you talented wiki editors! I hope that this wiki continues to grow and grow and becomes the most complete and extensive resource for AoEo players. Best of luck and as always have fun with it! :) byeRead more >
Interviewer: Billiamfeng (Marathon)
I got the amazing opportunity to interview sG Zuta yesterday, after the release of the Anniversary Patch. As one of the oldest players on Age of Empires Online, Zuta is a former member of the Balance Team. This staff-selected group of players help balance competitive gameplay by looking into statistical flaws.
A strong competitive player, sG Zuta reaches out to the community by posting on the forums, streaming his gameplay, and making tutorials and commentaries on YouTube.
You can check out his useful YouTube videos here!
And you can check out his streams on Twitch.tv here!
Question: First question! Because PvP rankings have reset after the patch, have you to get ranked?

It has now been confirmed. We're finally able to throw that silly "Annies" name out the door. The new civilization will be the Babylonians. The new booster quest pack will be named the "Fertile Crescent" booster. Check the source link at the bottom of the page for the showcase video!
"Age of Empires Online developer Gas Powered Games has revealed its upcoming pro civilization Babylon along with the Fertile Crescent booster pack in an exclusive Eurogamer interview.
Both the Babylon civ and the Fertile Crescent are due on 16th August to celebrate the game's one-year anniversary. Babylon will cost 900 Empire Points, the in-game currency, while the
booster pack will cost 450.
Gas Powered Games described the Babylonians as a "very economics focused…

Great news fellow AoEO players,
On August 16, 2012 we can expect a new update to be released. They are being pretty hush-hush with details but have released some interesting news about new features
- .A new Pro civ will be released, Codename: Annies (900 Empire Points)
- New Booster—a Quest Pack to get from roughly from lv 20 to lv 30 (450 Empire Points)
- Milestone Rewards-- Example: if you hit level 20 in celtic(any civ really) you can pick a buff and keep that for any other civ that you use. This will be a incentive to actually level up all of your civs to get all four of their bonuses.
- New Vanity Gear.
- New Empire Consumables.
- Secondary objectives for nearly all repeatable quests with additional rewards.
- Golden Ticket drop for high quality chests
Hello my friends, I come from the faraway land of America to wreak havoc on the AOEO wiki with my ravenous appetite of pseudo-grammar nazi psyche and strive to make horrifically good quality articles. I'll be around mostly patching up holes in articles and adding the complete content of the game into the wiki for the best learning experience a player can get from this wiki.
See you guys around!

I see that some people are having problems with some of the harder Argos, Crete, and Cyprus missions and whether or not we need to post walkthroughs on these mission wiki pages. Any feelings on this, sound off here.Read more >
Thought I would update you guys as to were I've been. My summer classes started up and it's kept me busier than I'd like. I haven't had time for anything fun in my life including this wiki. I'll be back the day after my last class which is the 27th. I miss all of you and eagerly look forward to working together again. :)Read more >
After wednesday afternoon, I will have literally no more worries at all, and I will be able to invest lots of time in Age of Empires Online and in the wiki. The next thing I will be working on are the consumables. I am not a miracle worker concerning programming, so maybe I will ask some of you for tips about the layout. My goal is to include all consumables - Free, Premium, old, new - in a clear table, with links to the individual items. I also want to make/edit those individual pages so that they have the exact same layout. I think it has a certain charm when it all looks taut. Warpaints and War Horns are also on their way. I hope to finish these things as soon as possible, because I want to drag the attention of as many p…Read more >

Greetings fellow AoEo fans, Sadly I have the duty of informing you that the newest update has been Delayed. This is understandable because it is the biggest update they've ever released and is expected by their own reports to take 36 hours to update due to it's massive size. During the 36 hours of downtime they will be steaming some PvP on their test servers to show some new stuff that got changed. They might also show a quest or two to show off some new consumables.
Most excitingly they will be giving away codes for some ingame goodies! Keep watching for updates. They are planning on releasing a schedule in due time.
Greetings everyone. Much like yourself, our excitement builds everyday as we look forward to the newest update being released …

Hi there fellow editor's !
I'd like to give you guy's a heads up regarding my activity for the next week.
Since the temperatures outside are high, I'm going to spend alot of my time outside this upcoming week.
I have a 3 years old that wants to play football / go get ice-cream.
So we will be enjoying the hot summer air, outside !
I'll pop in now and then to keep updating, but just not as much as regular.
I was looking under the admin dashboard and was surprised to see that we get 40k views a week. This should really boost all you editors out there. Don't give up, people are using our site. These views are because we provide great info. But, There is still so much to be done. We can make this wiki the ultimate resource for players with your help! :)Read more >
I was looking at all of our items and noticed we don't really have a set naming system for categories. Example: Spears have the category "Spear", shields have the category "Shields". Are we always going to pluralize categories? I'm not a fan personally because on the page it'll show up as "Shields" but the item itself is only a shield.
I was also wondering about the difference between "Gear" and "Equipment". I think we really need a set-in-stone rule for this. Is it Gear or is it Equipment? We have to have consistancy to make the wiki look great. We also don't want each category to be only containing half of all the items.
Opinions?Read more >
We're excited to have the privilege to tell all AoEo fans out there about this coming Summer update Read more from the official announcement here.
Firstly, They are getting rid of Snare!
"It’s just not fun to see your units running like they’re moving through molasses, or to feel so completely helpless after making one little mistake." - AoEo staff.
Early Town Centers
One extra Town Center will be available per age instead of offering 3 at the Silver Age.
Egyptian Economy Fixed
Egyptian villagers will finally gather at the same rate as other civilizations.
Ranged Unit Dominance
Ranged units will be slowed down so that way other units have a chance to catch up and destroy them.
Snare will be removed!
Armory Techs and Stone
All unit combat upgrade…

Greetings and salutations fellow AoEO fans,
Age of Empires Online is going to go through a huge change. The tech tree is going to be completely changed. There will be just enough technology that when a player reaches lv 40 then the player will be able to have all technologies unlocked. There will be 52 technologies for each civilization. Each technology will only cost 1 technology point to unlock. When the update comes out you’ll get 5 tech points every time you reach a new Age (levels 3, 7, and 15), and 1 tech point for every other level for a total of 52 tech points at level 40. Read More Star Techs will be available at Age 2. Additionally, Star Tech now behave like regular techs – they have a traditional resource cost and must be researc…Read more >
I am glad that I can help to expand this wiki, as there is very much work yet to be done. I will need some help on how to make "Tooltips" for items pages though, and I have no idea how to add the first item to a category - for example "rare" - if there is no item in that category yet. Many other things to learn, but it'll all be fine. My goal is to make all item pages have the éxáct same look, unfortunately, I can't succeed in that yet, as I'm not very familiar with the templates and the previously mentioned "Tooltip"..... And I also wrote this post for wiki points :P

Hello fellow Age of Empires Online fans,
I'm proud to announce that some new and exciting things are happening for this wiki. Recently we started implementing a new feature known as "Tooltips" This is the same feature seen on wowwiki, vanguardwiki, and many more. Our new system will allow you the user to simply mouseover something to learn more about it!
Examples: , , and .
The conversion process over to this new system will take some time. We ask for your patience while we are all hard at work to make this dream a reality. Feel free to jump in and start helping us to increase the conversion rate. ]]
Soon we will post a tutorial explaining how you can help posted right here!

feel free to leave a comment too.

But we are far from finished.
If we only had a few more hands on deck it would make a difference.
There is potential for this wiki to become the leading source of information for Age of Empires - Online.
We are a stone-throw away from achieving it !
We will get there, i am confident... The question is when !Read more >

I don't understand the aging up distribution of resources for the Celtic civilization. To reach age 2, you require two houses, or 150 wood, and 300 food, which is a little too much. For advancing to age three is an outrage. 500 food, 400 wood, and 500 gold. What do I look like, Bill Gates? Come on, make the resource count even for every civilization, because the units aren't the best anyways.Read more >
I am in the process of creating new gear list templates in order to unify the look of, well, gear lists. An example of these templates in action can be found here: Sling. It's currently work in progress as you can see both the new and the old sections on the page. Once I have finished adding the items to the new list, the old one will be deleted.Read more >
I just played the celts and I am a little pissed! Problem is that they suck at PVP due to shitty gear. In PVE their pretty good mosly the Woad Raider (I love their abilities). They do feel undergeared to the point of madness. Why the F**K do the infantry have F*****G CLOTH ARMOR!!!! Everyone knows infantry gets medium, ranged cloth and cavalry light. Apperantly the Woad Raiders need their own equipment (Great Axe, War Paint, War Horn WTF!!) You guys can hate all you want but I say they dropped the ball on Celt Gear. The quests on the other hand are damn near PERFECT. The reason is the new devs have a new scenario editor allowing handmade maps and triggers in nearly all the quests. Before they made random maps and built from that. That's wh…Read more >
Ahhh, Hypaspists, we all own them. I absolutely love them. Excellent gear, with some other units, (preferably toxotai) and a wall of infantry can be eradicated in seconds. On this blog, post your likes and dislikes about everything hypaspists.Read more >
The prem accounts are going worse, now because people don't play as much as before, they introduce new equipment for free users and im a free user, so it gets easy to do missions which is good, but is going on?Read more >
As you can see I am very much alive. I was on hiatus for a month due to me being preoccupied with Skyrim and such.

Big sout-out to everyone who helped us achieve 1200 articles. What's special about the number 1200?
