Meteors

God Powers are powerful abilities given whenever advancing an Age in Age of Mythology. Most God Powers are straight forward, but some have alternate uses. They generally become stronger with each passing age: while those God Powers that correspond to the Archaic Age powers typically provide a minor economic or military boost, those that come in the Mythic Age are very capable of devastating entire cities or armies, or quickly changing the pace of the match.

Greek God Powers Edit

Archaic Age Edit

  • BoltIcon Bolt (Zeus): Instantly kills any enemy unit. This power is extremely useful for taking out units formed by other God Powers such as the Son of Osiris and Nidhogg. This power can not be targeted on transport ships, ox carts, or Atlantean Citizens. It will not kill Titans, but it will take away about a third of their health.
  • LureIcon Lure (Poseidon): Creates a structure which attracts animals. After a set amount of Food is attracted the Lure collapses.

Classical Age Edit

  • CeasefireIcon Ceasefire (Hermes): Prevents combat from occurring for the duration of a minute. The construction of towers and fortresses is halted while in effect. Offensive God Powers can still be invoked, however. Good for dealing with God Powers that enhance an opponent's army such as Flaming Weapons or Bronze.
  • RestorationIcon Restoration (Athena): Causes friendly units and buildings in a large area to recover hit points over five seconds.
  • PestilenceIcon Pestilence (Ares): Causes military buildings in the target area to stop producing units for forty-five seconds. Has no effect on town centers, and technologies can still be researched.

Heroic Age Edit

  • UnderWorldPassageIcon Underworld Passage (Apollo): Creates two tunnel portals between any locations on the map. Units entering one are instantly transported to the other. The portals can be destroyed by enemy units, and destroying one will cause the other to collapse as well.
  • BronzeIcon Bronze (Dionysus): Increases the hack and pierce armor of all friendly human units in a small area for a minute and a half.
  • CurseIcon Curse (Aphrodite): Transforms some of the enemy units in the target area into pigs. The change is based on HP, so it will change more injured units, or less tough units. Does not affect Myth units or heroes. Has a reduced impact on villagers.

Mythic Age Edit

  • PlentyIcon Plenty (Hephaestus): Creates a vault that generates fifteen food, wood and gold every five seconds. The vault can't be destroyed - instead, it can be captured by enemy units; it is controlled by whoever has the most units in the area.
  • LightningStormIcon Lightning Storm (Hera): Creates a storm in the target area that deals significant amounts of damage to enemy units. The more units there are in the area, the more damage is done. Does not harm friendly units, deals neglectible damage to buildings.
  • EarthquakeIcon Earthquake (Artemis): Deals massive amounts of crush damage across a wide area – with more damage being dealt towards the center of the area of affect, and less towards the edges. Does not affect farms.

Egyptian God Powers Edit

Archaic Age Edit

  • ProsperityIcon Prosperity (Isis): Allows gold to gathered twice as fast for a short period of time
  • RainIcon Rain (Ra): Boosts farm gather rates by 300% for one minute for the caster, while boosting that of other players on the map by 200%. No God Powers can be invoked while Rain is in effect.
  • VisionIcon Vision (Set): Reveals a large area, dispelling the fog of war and the black map for the player and their allies for 20 seconds.

Classical Age Edit

  • EclipseIcon Eclipse (Bast): Increases the damage of all myth units (including their special attacks) by 50% and their speed by 20%. Eclipse lasts for just over one minute, and no other God Powers can be cast while it is in effect.
  • ShiftingSandsIcon Shifting Sands (Ptah): Instantly transports a group of units from one point on the map to another. Can be used to move both friendly and enemy units, however it will choose the enemy units to be transported randomly, and will not transport all of them, whereas it will transport most or all of the player's units. Has less impact on enemy villagers.
  • PlagueOfSerpentsIcon Plague of Serpents (Anubis): Summons friendly cobras to guard the target location on the map. The player has no control over the serpents, but shares their line of sight. If cast on water, this god power creates 'sea serpents', which are naval versions of the cobras summoned on land.

Heroic Age Edit

  • LocustSwarmIcon Locust Swarm (Hathor): Summons a swarm of locusts to attack enemy positions. The swarm constantly harms villagers and instantly destroys farms in its area of effect. It does no damage to other units or buildings but it is very effective in devastating the opponent's economy.
  • AncestorsIcon Ancestors (Nephthys): Raises the dead in either land (skeleton warriors) or water (undead fleet). As they can be easily defeated by an organized force they shouldn't be used as a primary fighting force but to support one's own troops during an attack, or defending against a surprise attack.
  • CitadelIcon Citadel (Sekhmet): Turns a friendly Town Center into a fortress with greatly increased attack, hitpoints, armor, and with the additional benefit of supporting additional population.

Mythic Age Edit

  • SonOfOsirisIcon Son of Osiris (Osiris): Converts the Pharaoh into Son of Osiris, which has greatly increased attack and HP, and hits up to four enemies at once when attacking. When Son of Osiris dies, the regular Pharaoh regenerates, so Son of Osiris can only be used once, and he cannot be healed in any way.
  • MeteorIcon Meteor (Thoth): Causes Meteors to rain down randomly over the target area. Meteor strikes do massive amounts of damage to buildings, but not so much to units. Lasts twenty seconds.
  • TornadoIcon Tornado (Horus): Creates a tornado that deals a large amount of damage to both units and buildings (including friendly units). The tornado will wander randomly about the target area for twenty seconds before disappearing.

Norse God Powers Edit

Archaic Age Edit

  • GreatHuntIcon Great Hunt (Odin): Causes the amount of animals in the target area to multiply.
  • DwarvenMineIcon Dwarven Mine (Thor): Creates a gold mine at the location specified by the player. The amount of gold the mine has differs according to the age it is cast in (500 in the Archaic Age, 1000 in the Classical Age, 3000 in the Heroic Age and 6000 in the Mythic Age).
  • SpyIcon Spy (Loki): Using this GP on an enemy unit reveals its line-of-sight until it is killed. Unlike most (if not all) other God Powers, the enemy receives no notification that the spy GP has been used. Note: Due to a bug, it is not advised to cast Spy on a villager unit or Norse infantry, because the Spy effect will be canceled when the unit begins building something.

Classical Age Edit

  • ForestFireIcon Forest Fire (Freyja): Sets trees on fire. The fire spreads to other trees in a limited radius before they collapse. Any units and buildings nearby the flames take damage.
  • UndermineIcon Undermine (Heimdall): Deals damage to walls, towers, town centers and fortresses. Undermine is powerful enough to destroy walls and towers instantly, but only deals limited damage to town centers and fortresses.
  • HealingSpringIcon Healing Spring (Forseti): Creates a healing spring which heals any idle friendly units within range at a rate of 2.5 HP/second. The spring is indestructible but can be captured by enemy units, much like the Plenty Vault.

Heroic Age Edit

  • WalkingWoodsIcon Walking Woods (Njord): Transforms several trees into walking trees that will attack any enemy units or buildings they sight. The player has no control over the trees, but shares their line of sight. The trees remain until killed.
  • FrostIcon Frost (Skadi): Freezes in place all enemy units in a large area for a minute, but gives them 99% armor to all attacks, making them nigh-invulnerable while frozen.
  • FlamingWeaponsIcon Flaming Weapons (Bragi): Increases the attack of all human units and heroes on the map by 50% for one minute.

Mythic Age Edit

  • RagnarokIcon Ragnarok (Baldr): All villagers/dwarves are instantly converted into Heroes of the Ragnarok. Heroes of the Ragnarok are similar to Norse Hersir, they are melee infantry units with a huge bonus against myth units.
  • FimbulwinterIcon Fimbulwinter (Tyr): Summons four packs of Fimbulwinter Wolves to attack enemy Town Centers on the map. The player has no control over the wolves, and they die after the god power finishes. No other god powers can be invoked while Fimbulwinter is in effect. Fimbulwinter lasts for 20 seconds.
  • NidhoggIcon Nidhogg (Hel): Summons the powerful dragon Nidhogg to serve the player. Nidhogg is particularly tough and quite effective against buildings, and does splash damage against groups of enemy units. Nidhogg cannot be healed.

Atlantean God Powers Edit

Most Atlantean God powers can be used more than once. Glowing dots above each god power button show how many times that power can be used. (Number after the deity's name shows the number of uses granted.)

Archaic Age Edit

  • DeconstructionIcon Deconstruction (Kronos, 2): Reverts the construction of an enemy building, putting the building’s cost back into its owner’s stockpile.
  • GaiaForestIcon Gaia Forest (Gaia, 4): Generates a forest, of which wood can be harvested from. This power is similar to the Dwarven Mine, but it can also be used to another purpose: namely, to generate an almost impassable wall, since only villagers can directly attack the trees.
  • ShockwaveIcon Shockwave (Oranos, 3): Generates a shockwave which deals minor damage and scatters enemy units in a relatively small radius. Scattered units are stunned for several seconds as well.

Classical Age Edit

  • SpiderLairIcon Spider Lair (Leto, 3): Target an area to place spider eggs that will eventually hatch a burrow. Enemy units will be killed by the spiders when they cross through the area. Eggs can be killed before they hatch.

  • ChaosIcon Chaos (Hyperion, 2): Makes a group of enemy units neutral, causing them to attack anything nearby.
  • HesperidesIcon Hesperides (Theia, 2): Generates a tree where Dryads can be created and also protects against God Powers. Much like the Plenty Vault and the Healing Spring, it can't be destroyed, but its owner will change according to who has the most units nearby.

Mythic Age Edit

  • ImplodeIcon Implode (Atlas, 1): Casts a spherical 'black hole', which sucks in nearby units and explodes, causing damage to all nearby units and substantial damage to buildings. Damage increases as more units are sucked in.
  • VortexIcon Vortex (Helios, 3): Teleport all military units of a player to the target area on the map.
