How to Conquer and Defend Sacred Sites in Age of Empires 4. Tips and Tactics for Retaining Sacred Sites

In Age of Empires 4, you can conquer sacred sites. This allows you to win the match without destroying the enemy base. In this guide, we'll show you the easiest way to capture sacred sites.


To begin with, you need to reach the third era by building landmarks. Each era has its own, so you will not be able to quickly pump the development of civilization if you do not focus on the landmarks moving the era forward.


To find landmarks, select a peasant (worker), then click the fifth icon in the first row of the lower left window. In the third era, you unlock a religious building (monastery / mosque or otherwise). Build it and get the opportunity to create religious units - monks, the only ones who can capture sacred places. Send the monk to the goal and the task will be completed.

You can capture someone else's sacred place with the help of the army. However, after the destruction of the enemy, you will not automatically subjugate the shrine - you need a monk. Always keep a few monks safe at your base so that you can send them to sacred sites at any time.

Helpful hints:

  • Build a city center (2nd era building) near a sacred site. This will allow workers to be quickly deployed, who can then create defensive structures;
  • You can try to fence off the sacred site with many fortresses and outposts;

  • Keep multiple units nearby if the enemy is attacking with siege weapons. These units are the most dangerous for defenses, so burn them first. Fortresses and outposts will destroy any enemy infantry and cavalry, but they have little chance against siege equipment;
  • Focus on capturing and holding the two sacred sites as early as possible and don't lose them. If the enemy captures one - immediately fight back. If the enemy continues to hold the position, they will create many defenses, making it very difficult to recapture. Quickly creating warriors and reaching the third age is vital to victory;
  • Concentrate most of your workforce on stone mining. It is the main resource for building and improving fortresses. Outposts are much cheaper and can be made from wood. By themselves, such structures will not hold back an entire army, but together with 4-5 fortresses it will be extremely difficult to break through to you.
