Loom in AoE2

Google Rank
Ok Loomers! It's time to dive into the surprisingly complicated topic of when to get loom. Besides just looking at how large of an effect it has against a variety of animals and units, I ran the numbers on how big of an effect getting it too early can have on an early economy. It was a surprising amount!

0:20 Stats, and comparison against boar and wolves
1:20 Before/after loom when fighting dark age scouts, eagle scouts, feudal age scouts, spearmen, militia, man-at-arms, archers, skirmishers
2:50 The short argument for why to get loom
3:20 So is loom at the start a good idea?
4:22 Get loom before luring boar?
5:45 Common exceptions: Chinese, Mayans, black forest, elephants & rhinos, getting housed.
