Blessings

BlessingsTable.png

Blessings are similar to technologies in that they provide new construction projects for cities and new items for units, but differ in that instead of being unlocked passively over time, they are unlocked manually by spending Pearls Pearls.png. Many of the Blessings provide unique and powerful effects, often focusing on providing bonuses during Winter Winter.png or dealing Retaliation Damage Retaliation.png.

In order to unlock blessings, a player first needs to construct the Altar of Auriga expansion in one of their cities. Once that is complete, the player can access the Altar by clicking on the button just above the "End Turn" button, or by pressing "O". Doing so will bring up the Altar interface, the right side of which is the Blessing table. The Blessings there become available to unlock in "rings" extending out from the center, each unlocking at the start of the first, second, and third winter in succession. To unlock a blessing, select it and then select Unlock The Blessing in the center of the table. Doing so will cost a specific amount of pearls depending on what winter the blessing is unlocked in; Blessings from the first winter cost 10 Pearls to unlock, those from the second winter cost 15 Pearls, and those from the third winter cost 20 Pearls. Once a blessing is unlocked, whatever construction or item that is unlocked by it is available to make, but all of these require some amount of pearls to use as well, so that should be taken into account when determining how many pearls one needs to unlock a blessing and use something from it.
