For the Black & White 2 variant, see Wonder
Wonders are the most advanced buildings of Black & White, requiring 7 scaffoldings and a lot of wood to be constructed. They vary from tribe to tribe not only in appearance, but different wonders also grant different powers.
A wonder's size is directly related to how much belief a village has left. The more belief it has, the greater the wonder will be. The greater the wonder, the more powerful its effects will be. A large wonder can also be built by placing the scaffold extremely close to an artifact and the resulting wonder almost always needs near 60,000 wood to be built.
Increases the power of nature miracles (such as forest) and weather miracles (such as storm). Each Miraculous Tree provides lots and lots of wood. (*note, the game states "trees provide more wood". However, normal grown trees will NOT increase their wood amount. Only trees from the Miracle Forest yield increased wood amounts).
Increases the power of the pack miracle. Children are born faster.
Increases the power of lightning miracles. Villagers move faster. Increases birthrate.
Increases the power of healing miracles and increases the chance of children being born. Villagers feel hungry less often.
Decreases prayer power cost of both shield miracles and increases the power of flock miracles. Your actions become more impressive.
