How to Get Resources in Total War: PHARAOH
There are various ways to get your hands on resources but you will get to explore those options later in the game as you progress and expand your empire in the Kingdom of Egypt. The usual and basic way to start getting resources is by conquering the settlements nearby. Capturing new territory/settlement is a quick, though often challenging, way to gain more resources. Look for the resource symbol next to the name of any major settlement; it shows the main resource that the place provides. If you lack a specific resource, think about bringing nearby allies under your rule. You can use their resources to compensate for your shortages.
Another way to get resources quickly from your surroundings is by raiding the enemy’s outposts. Attacking unguarded outposts lets you ‘sack’ them, damaging their buildings but gaining gold, food, bronze, and stone. You can do the same with bigger settlements, but be cautious. Looting them can make your people unhappy and cause issues with other nations.
Apart from these general ways of getting the resources, there are some other methods as well including the following.
All of the systems mentioned above can provide an increase in your resources income so, make sure to take advantage of these systems while running low on resources.
