A Wonder is a mega-building, which may be unique in the world, and provides exceptional bonuses. All Wonders are inspired by real-world buildings and landmarks. Note that the effect of each wonder only applies to the civilization controlling the city where it is built; also, many Wonders have on-build effects which won't activate again if another civilization captures their city.
All of these stat bonuses apply directly to the city where the Wonder is built if applicable. Also, most Wonders produce Great People Points of some kind - check their info blocks for the details.
For example, to build the Forbidden Palacethe Patronage policy tree must have been started. Only one of these can exist in the world. If multiple civilizations would complete building it on the same turn, whichever has the most excess production will get the wonder. These are special wonders which can only be built once a certain building has been built in all cities the civilization controls directly that is, excluding Puppet cities.
Only one of these can exist in a single civilization, but each civilization can build one for itself so, there is no competition here. Note that the Palace cannot be built: it is automatically built when a civilization's first city is founded. The Grand Temple must be built in a Holy City. In Brave New Worldthree guilds were introduced. They are actually a mix between a building and a national wonder, in that they don't need a prerequisite building in every city, but only one of each can exist in a single civilization.
Since they're the only means for producing Great WritersGreat Artists and Great Musiciansthe urgency of their building will depend on a civilization's victory strategy. These late-game projects grant a civilization a powerful ability once finished. They cannot be rushed using Great Engineers except for spaceship parts if a civilization is using the Order Ideology.
These projects are a new feature in Brave New World. Unlike normal projects, they may only be proposed during the World Congress. If the proposition passes, the projects can be undertaken by all civilizations simultaneously. Each International Project grants prizes depending on how much the civilization was involved, based upon the Production contributed towards the project.
Only the civilization that contributed the highest amount of production will get the first prize, whereas every civilization that contributed the stated amount or above will get second and third prizes.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam.

Nesano 28 Jun am. Oh, Perfect Mod, where have you been all my life? Junky 26 Jun am. Maya get Chichen itza now i think.The list is sorted by Era, so that you can attempt to build all the Wonders for your Victory Type as they are unlocked by research. Within the list, you'll find each Wonder's tech requirements, the stats it provides, and a special column for Great Person Points for those looking to maximize their GPP per turn in a City.
Building Wonders World Wonders may only be built once in each game. If you are competing to produce a Wonder and lose, you will get gold proportionate to the production your City invested. Wonders become increasingly more challenging to build as you raise the difficulty of Civilization 5 due to the AI bonuses. Having a technological edge can help you succeed in constructing Wonders, along with internal trade routes from Cities with Workshops sending Production to the Wonder-producing City.
Having a Spy inserted as a Diplomat in an opponent's Capital can sometimes alert you that the target Civ is building that Wonder. City-States will give quests based on Wonders that you may build, and this is a great way to boost influence with them. When you conquer a City, Wonders will not be destroyed, and you will have full benefit from any inside when you finally Annex the City.
Warmongers may let others build these and specifically target these Cities that have constructed them to take control. Boosting Wonder Production As stated before, you can use trade routes from Cities that have built Workshops to send production to your other Cities.The World Wonder Tier List for Civ 6
When you're able, use sea trade routes as these provide double. Great Engineers can hurry production on a Wonder, which will often contribute enough hammers to finish it in a single turn. If you have a lead and don't need it quite so fast, use the Engineer to build a Manufactory on a Grassland or Hill tile to get huge production when working that spot, which will permanently raise your City's output.
The Tradition Social Policy tree has another boost to Wonder production that is permanent, helping with those Wonders from the Ancient to Information Eras. Finishing Tradition will let you buy Great Engineers with Faith starting in the Industrial Era, so you can spawn one when you need and quickly finish a newly acquired Wonder project.
Early in the game, using workers and chopping forests in your borders will provide hammers toward Wonder production. If those forests will be gone anyway, this is the best time to make use of them.
Civilization 5 World Wonders
Forests outside borders provide less production. If building a Wonder is incredibly important, you may even want to buy a tile or two to give your City better production to ensure you are first to finish.
Building Too Many Wonders A common newbie mistake is to shoot for Wonders and neglect build the basics in a City - Workshops, Culture buildings, Religious buildings, etc. You may have a high score as Wonders factor heavily, but your Cities will have less production, your borders less defense, and you'll be a target for enemy Civilizations that wanted those Wonders you've built.
The diplomatic hit of building a Wonder another Civ wanted combined with a weak military will often lead to war, especially if your borders are tight and the difficulty is higher than Prince. It is far better to focus on those Wonders that specifically aid you in the Victory type you're chasing or fill the needs of your Empire's Citizens while making a military and the regular buildings that help your Cities to flourish and grow.
Look to the Demographics screen in-game to see where you stand in science and military occasionally. This will give you an idea if your Civilization is weak and if you have a technological edge that lets you start the Wonder first. Extra Requirements About a dozen Wonders require not only technology to unlock them, but also that you adopt a social policy or Ideology to be eligible to construct them.
These will be noted in the list.Like in Civ3, World Wonders may be built by only one civilization and National Wonders also known as small wonders may be built by every civilization.
The effects of small wonders are usually more city-specific and you can build at most two small wonders per city. There is no restriction on the number of World Wonders you can build in a city. Each time you finish building a World Wonder, there is a short movie clip showing the wonder being built.
Civilization IV also introduced a new class of buildings called Projects. A few examples are the Apollo Program and The Internet. The main difference between projects and wonders is that projects cannot be rushed in any way, while wonders can be rushed by forest chopping, gold, etc. Projects are classified into World Projects and Team Projects. NOTE: Clicking on the thumbnail for a wonder will display a larger picture.
The wonder costs assume normal game speed. Information in this section is correct as of Beyond the Sword, version 3. City more likely to generate Great Prophet Can only be built on Medieval and earlier starts.

You can see the gift option when going to the Account Upgrades screen, or on any user profile screen. This article is simply about discussing World Wonders, the basics and some general strategies in using them.
It is not meant to be inclusive of all stategies ie I am not discussing SE, CE, a priest economy etc Before I post the Summary, a thread will be started in the main strategy forum to discuss the wonder in general.
Please feel free to join that discussion if you want, and there is no time limit as to when an thread can be bumped. Finally, I will present them in the general order that they are available. Not useful if your creative or have an established religion that will spread quickly enough.
Note, the free UB with disappear at astronomy while built ones still survive and provide culture. Very helpful for culture wins. Has good synergy with the Oracle for further increasing prophet points. Also the early Prophet can be used to bulb theology to found a religion, adopt theocracy, and first crack at building the AP.
The AIs who are not creative are notoriously slow in getting border propr, so no reason to give them free ones. But if you found an early religion, your far along. Even if there is no stonehenge the chances of getting a shrined religion are pretty high see below on techs. I will include free techs to get in groups. It is not inclusive but meant to be a guideline, consider your difficulty in pickign a tech and remember if you get greedy the AI may pluck this wonder away from you.
Threads may be written on obtaining these! It means fewer defenders needed in the early part of the game. Also forces the barbs to harass the AI.
Charismatic leads to faster promotions, and Protective leads to stronger defenders to get that needde XP. Popping an early Great Spy is very valuable and can change the game's direction more than any other early Great Person not always but often enoughand if you miss the Great Wall you have to wait until courthouses to run 1 spy specialist.
Sometimes this reason alone is a good reason to build the Great Wall. Also a PHIL leader could benefit from this wonder to run an espionage economy. Well you have instant extra GG production as the AI tries to recapture their city!You spend a lot of hammers on that wonder, so you should know which ones to invest in!
I sum up the five best and worst wonders, so you can watch the AI finish them one turn before you. Step 2: Put them in circles. Step 3:????? For whatever it was worth to people then, its use has diminished just a bit. Similarly, Stonehenge ages about as well in real life as it does in the game. Angkor Wat, one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. This Medieval Temple and burial ground is considered the largest religious monument in the world.
Nestled between rivers in the fertile fields of Cambodia, it has led to entire cities built around it. The impregnable Mont St. Michel at high tide. Mont St.
Michel, the unconquerable island fortress of France makes this list as a visually stunning dud in Civ 6. While some cases can be made for its construction, its yields are meager. Its primary function is creating relics which are typically attained by Apostles dying; Mont St. Michel essentially demands human sacrifices to generate faith. The Taj Mahal may be the most beautiful mausoleum in the world.
The "Mother of Exiles" finds her way onto the "worst" list. One of the most iconic landmarks in the world, the Statue of Liberty rounds out the list of worst wonders in Civ VI. The Great Pyramids in all their golden glory. As far as great big piles of rocks go, the pyramids are a pretty impressive pile. Built by tens of thousands of slaves, the Pyramids provide bonus builder charges throughout your empire.Wonders are mega-buildings that are unique in the world and provide potent bonuses to a civilization.
All wonders are inspired by, and named after, famous real-world buildings or landmarks that have stood the test of time and changed the world forever.
Wonders require time, energy, and effort to complete, but once constructed, they provide your civilization with many benefits. Civilization VI adds a feature known as "wonder movies," which allows you to watch a wonder being constructed from scratch in less than 30 seconds somewhat similar to the wonder movies from Civilization IV.
This replaces the announcement screen you see in Civilization V when you complete a wonder. Building a wonder is an important achievement for a civilization. Each specific wonder may exist only once in the whole world, so their construction is, in fact, a race between civs.
Players should plan their progression well if they want to be able to build the wonders they covet! Note that, unlike in Civilization Vthe "consolation prize" for failing to complete a wonder before another player is not Gold but Production which is arguably much more useful, since it allows the players who didn't complete the wonder to catch up on lost construction opportunities. In relation to previous games, Civilization VI adds a revolutionary new feature: wonders are now constructed not inside a city that is, on the city tilebut on a separate tile near a city like a Planetary Wonder in Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth.
This is part of the overall de-centralization drive of the game, which seeks to spread various city features to the surrounding land, so wonders will now have to compete for space with both districts and tile improvements. What's more, there are now a slew of specific requirements for almost all wonders, which can encompass terrain type, adjacency, or other game elements. Finally, many wonders are now unlocked via the new civics treeinstead of the normal tech tree.
Wonders can only be built on valid land tiles or Coast tiles in some cases that don't contain a district, a luxury resourceor a strategic resource. You'll only be able to build a wonder on a Marsh if you have Irrigation or on a Rainforest if you have Bronze Working because these are the techs which enable you to remove such features from the terrain.
Also, any other existing improvements and bonus resources will be removed from the tile, so it as advised you build them on flat land or hill tiles with no resources or features like Woods. Flat Desert tiles with no resources are perfect for constructing wonders since they don't provide any yield normally anyway. Note that, since you cannot "work" a wonder that is, you cannot assign Citizens to its tileyou will be unable to use the yields of its tile anymore; however, the tile will continue providing adjacency bonuses.
[Top 5] Civ 6 Best and Worst Wonders
This is important for wonders which are constructed on terrain features without removing them such as Chichen Itza or Mahabodhi Temple. Wonder construction can be accelerated via Industrial City-States.
Note that in Rise and Fallthese additional bonuses are tied to the presence of a Workshop and a Factory respectively. With these new mechanics it becomes much more difficult to construct wonders because, depending on their specific starting location and available nearby terrain as well as their general developmentplayers will have access to far fewer wonders than before.
However, this can also work to the players' advantage: each wonder will be less likely to be snatched up by whoever managed to research the tech that unlocks it first, allowing you to have a chance to construct it even if you are not leading in Science or Culture. The borders of a city that completes a wonder will immediately expand by two tiles, provided there are tiles within range for the city to claim.
If a city is razed after completing a wonder, the wonder is lost forever and cannot be rebuilt elsewhere. Unless a wonder's description stipulates otherwise, its effects apply only to the civilization that builds it.
Both standard districts and buildings and their unique replacements will satisfy any listed placement restrictions. Rapid Deployment.
