Heroes Edit

Bonuses Edit

  • When human units are killed, there is a 20% chance a Shade will be generated at the player's Temple. Shades are weak melee units that become more powerful in later ages.
  • Buildings have 25% more hit points and 20% more attack.
  • Archers have 10% more attack (including Sentinels).

Strategy Edit

Hades is defensive and focuses on archers and buildings, though archers can of course be used offensively. He has the strongest archers in the Greek faction and therefore some of the strongest in the game. In fact, Hades players who choose Ares, Apollo and Artemis can have Toxotes with a 45% attack bonus, giving them an attack of 9.4 without the standard upgrades.

All buildings have extra hit points and defensive ones have extra attack as well, allowing for a strong defense to counter enemy attacks. In addition to this, Hades' god power, Sentinel, allows for even greater defense of one crucial Town Center. Soldiers that are killed have chance of returning as Shades to fight again, helping to sustain pitched battles or defend the player's town even more effectively

Mythology Edit

"The brother of Zeus, Hades drew the underworld as his to rule when the Titans were overthrown and banished to Tartarus. He shared rule of the underworld with Persephone, whom he had abducted from above. Although required to release her, she was tricked and forced to remain with him. Hades sat on an ebony throne and wore a helmet that made him invisible. There he ruled the dead and accepted those newly arrived from above. Hermes brought the souls of the dead to the River Styx where Charon, the ferryman, carried them across. The three-headed watchdog, Cerberus, prevented any escape. Most souls remained on the empty Plain of Asphodel. A lucky few of extraordinary merit went on to the blessed islands of Elysium. The unlucky were sentenced to unending torment further down in Tartarus. In rare instances, Hades allowed living mortals, such as Odysseus, to enter the underworld and then leave again. Even more rarely did Hades free the dead to return to the living. He was the richest of the gods, possessing all the mineral wealth in the Earth."
