Treasures are extra items that any player is able to find and collect in Age of Empires III, Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs and Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties.

Game Info Edit

Treasures are guarded by one or more Treasure Guardians which are usually wild animals or outlaws. The player must kill the Treasure Guardian or Guardians to enable the ability for a Explorer or Settler to collect the Treasure.

Note: Alain Magnan, the only mounted explorer in Age of Empires III is unable to collect treasures.

Treasures may be a resource (such as Food, Coin, or Wood), a tame animal (such as a pet bear or jaguar), or other units (such as a native soldier or a Settler).

In the Age of Empires III:The Asian Dynasties there are Water Treasures that can be collected only by naval units in a body of water.
