Age of Wonders 4 Best Traits


For the fighters out there who want to dominate in hand-to-hand combat there are some ideal traits to equip such as:

  • Warrior
  • Logistics
  • Commander

The warrior trait in particular improves melee and ranged skills which will make your units deadly in 1-to-1 situations. The other two focus more on improving the overall unit by buffing the squad or making them move quicker in order to pull off better tactical maneuvers.


For those aiming to win with magic there are some particularly useful traits like:

  • Summoning
  • Elementalism
  • Arcane Lore

The last two are both similar buffs that make your magicians more powerful, which is never a bad thing. Summoning, however, allows your magical units to summon creatures to fight by your side, growing the numbers of your army with ease.

Out of Battle

If you prefer to win your wars away from the battlefield then there are some useful traits for you that will either help you generate resources or make you a smooth talker like:

  • Spy
  • Prosperity
  • Innovator
  • Diplomat

These four have a wide array of benefits but they are all powerful traits that can help turn the tide in your favor if used successfully.
