Happiness

From Northgard Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Happiness.png Happiness is determined by the sum of the addition by Happiness Sources, minus Happiness Consumption.

Happiness.png Happiness must be managed carefully, especially on harder difficulties as Unhappy.png Unhappiness will cause your population growth to stop and Unhappy.png Unhappy units have a -20% production debuff.

The Eikthyrnir Clan benefits particularly from Happiness.png because of the knowledge :

Young and Proud

Increase the Attack Power.png Attack of your Warband.png warband by 3% for every positive Happiness.png Happiness you have (25% max).



Effects on the Settlement[edit | edit source]

Happiness.png Happiness is the factor that determines how fast your Clans population will grow. While Happiness.png Happiness is 0 or above new Villagers will spawn at your Town Hall. The more positive Happiness.png Happiness you have, the faster new Villagers will join your clan.
