What do people think of apostolic now? I guess it is worse but it is a lot of faith pretty quickly with no effort. I am tempted by it with lots of faith purchase buildings/units.
Same for way of the pilgrim too it seems like a fairly good no effect effect. Just spread like you'd do anyway and get +8f+8g everywhere. Will lead to huge cities as long as you can keep them happy. You can even spread it to the AI so they have more money to steal!
Apostolic is an early food engine and a continual faith engine. I like it least with authority, because the grown results in unhappiness. Progress and Tradition can use the food better. It’s really useful for having a chance to reform early, because the extra faith actually gives you a chance of doing so.
