One of the five primary resources needed to grow in power, Ore is harvested from constructed Mines in the city or found in randomly located Mines on the World Map. As with all primary resources, Ore can be acquired through a successful attack on an enemy city and can also be captured by enemies attacking your own city.
A Mine can only be constructed outside the city walls. The correct level of Mine is necessary for upgrading the Forge.
Mine's are located in the world view. The can appear as levels 1 through 6. Each level has a set amount of ore that it spawns with. Once all the ore is collected from a Mine, the Mine dissapears and another resource is spawnsed somewhere on the world map. It is also possible to recieve Crafting Materials (Only Glass, Metal, or Plating) from collecting from a Mine.
