"We have been keeping watch on the rivers, ever since we saw a great troop of Orcs going north toward Moria, along the skirts of the mountains, many days ago. Wolves are howling on the wood's borders. If you have indeed come from Moria, the peril cannot be far behind. "
Haldir, The Fellowship of the Ring

Resource Production - This building produces resources. It produces 28 Resources every 12 seconds by default. This number can be modified through upgrades and abilities.

Supply routes Supply Routes - As you build more economy structures, their individual production becomes less efficient. Once you reach a certain threshold all economy structures will produce less.

  • 5 economy structures or less: 100% production
  • 10 economy structures: 84% production
  • 15 economy structures: 69% production
  • 20 economy structures: 56% production
  • 30 economy structures: 44% production
  • 37 economy structures or more: 37% production

Note: In 4.5.3, the current ingame tooltip shows the outdated inflation rate of prior versions.

  • 2 Border Guardhouses: -20%
  • 3 Border Guardhouses: -30%
