Age of Wonders 4: All Types of Affinities

Affinities are like the Skills of your Society/Faction that you will choose depending upon which route you want to take for your society. When you select the Tome at the start of your gameplay, you will be basically choosing an affinity path for your society. Each Tome gives out 2 Points for a certain Affinity Type so, choosing Tomes will also play an important role in which affinity you want to spend points.

In this guide, we’ll be telling you all types of Affinities in Age of Wonders 4.

When you have created your faction and selected a magic class of your society, you will be given two points in that current affinity type. If you have chosen a Tome of Nature, you will have 2 Affinity Points in Nature Affinity and it goes the same for the rest of the Affinities. Now, as you progress in the game by completing the missions, you will get access to higher tiers Tomes which will give more points in the respected affinities.

Each of the Affinity has 13 different skills in them in which you can spend points by getting the required Tomes. The more you spend points on a specific affinity, the more your society will take turns to that affinity lifestyle. If you want to build your society in a calm and healing way then nature tomes are the way to go and if you want to build them darker and necromancer way then Shadow Tomes are the way to go. Now, keep in mind that getting the points will only unlock the skill. However, you will still have to buy the skill in order to equip yourself with a currency called Imperium which is the main currency of the game.
