    Its fairly standard to shoot up the bottom part of the tree as fast as possible. You will want writing for libraries and construction for collosiums but beyond that you can pretty much beeline straight for artillery.

    I like the top half so that I can get education, which helps establish a tech lead, and biology to unlock the order policy tree.

    Germany: Early writing to get great scientist to bulb civil service so you can start spamming landsknechts. Supplement them with horsemen and archers.

    Rome: I'd still go with horsemen, but legions + ballista are still very good.
