The Earth Dragon is a Chinese god power in Age of Mythology:Tale of the Dragon. It is available to Nü Wa and Shennong players who worship Xi Wangmu in the Mythic Age. When cast, the immense Earth Dragon emerges from the Earth's crust to attack enemies within its range. The Earth Dragon has the highest number of hit points of any non-Titan unit, a title previously held by Nidhogg, the Norse dragon.

Like most of Atlantean god powers, the Earth Dragon god power has 3 charges, with a recharge time of 180 seconds.

Strategy Edit

It is not recommended to use Earth Dragon defensively as it is a stationary unit, similar to the Atlantean Carnivora, and can be overtaken by ranged units or avoided altogether by simply keeping one's distance from it. Instead, it should be cast within an important enemy town so that it can attack both enemy units and buildings. Earth Dragon has enough bulk to take out a Town Center even when taking damage from nearby towers and Castle-type buildings. The dragon's fire breath deals splash damage, meaning it can damage several targets at once. Players shouldn't hesitate to summon the Earth Dragon in an area where it will take lots of damage as it will return underground after three minutes anyway. Since this God Power can be used three times, it is an efficient means to deal tremendous damage to multiple enemy towns. Players should only use Earth Dragon defensively as a last resort, such as when they need to defend an important town and don't have enough units readily available to counterattack.
