The Desert Obelisk is the first obelisk type available to the people of Egypt. It is built to pass the Test of the Obelisk (or the principle thereof), or simply for decoration.
This type of obelisk requires bricks, boards, clay, dried flax, flint, linen, and slate to build. As with all obelisks, it is built in a Small Construction Site, where the builder defines the size of the obelisk-to-be in cubits. The taller the obelisk, the greater the material requirements.
*Note that this tech CANNOT be taught. You must learn it from the University.
Please do not build an obelisk before signing up for a spot in the queue in your region.
You can see the links to all the queues on the Test of the Obelisk page.
Time Required To Hold Power
7 Egyptian days = approximately 2 days, 8 hours real time. Please confirm the previous obelisk has passed prior to building yours!
Note: Time seems to vary considerably (Teppy time?); Manu's obelisk was built on 31/12 15:55GMT and had yet to pass on 3/1 4:55GMT (2 days, 13 hours real time); it had passed when we logged in on 3/1 11:40AM
Material Requirements by Size
Built in a Small Construction Site.
- Bricks: x*x*2 + x*19
- Boards: x*x/5 + x*2
- Slate: x*x/23 + x/2
- Dried Flax: x*x/17 + x/5
- Clay: x*x/15 + x*3
- Linen: x*x/51 + x
- Flint: x*x/45 + x/8
Warning: Rounding on these is weird. They mostly round down each part (either side of the +), but sometimes you end up with 1 extra.
