How to get favors in Europa Universalis IV – FandomSpot

In EU4 there are four ways to get favors from other nations:

  1. Passively collecting favors with an alliance
  2. Using the Curry Favors diplomatic action.
  3. Active participation in an ally’s war
  4. Allocation of provinces in a peace agreement

Note: Favors given to non-allied nations decrease by a fixed percentage per month. If you are at war with them, all favors will be deleted immediately.

Method 1: maintaining an alliance

By default, you will automatically receive favors from your allies every month.

The amount is based on your combined allied power and your contribution to that total.

A stronger military than your ally means you get more monthly favors. This simulates the real-world concept of a superpower’s ability to influence weaker nations more frequently.

Method 2: Curry Favors

This is the easiest and most reliable way to get favors. You need a diplomat to actively generate favor with your target.

In order to do this:

  1. Open your target’s Diplomacy tab
  2. Click Affect Actions
  3. Choose curry favors

The amount won depends on your diplomatic reputation, the target’s opinion of you, and your relative military strength.

Method 3: Help an ally in war

You receive favors after aiding an ally in a defensive or offensive war. The base amount earned is 20 favors – modified by you war contribution.

It doesn’t matter winning their war.

As long as you’ve championed their cause, you’ll still receive favors from them.

You can increase your war contribution by occupying/liberating forts and fighting battles.

Note: For some nebulous reason, you can get more War Contribution from battles losing soldiers.

Method 4: Grant provinces after a war

When negotiating peace, these two terms can earn you a favor:

  1. return cores – This can also apply to nations that did not join the war or even those that are not allied with you.
  2. Granting a province to a veteran – If your ally hasn’t occupied a province to core, you need to occupy one first. You then give them control of the occupied province via the Profession Transfer button in the Province UI. This province can now be selected during peace agreements.

The favors won here depend on your ally’s war contribution and the war point cost of the given provinces.

Note: You won’t get as many favors if you promised your ally land at the start of the war. You actually lose trust if you don’t fulfill that promise. How to get favors in Europa Universalis IV – FandomSpot
