Strategy Edit

Nereids are somewhat fragile, their special attack is devastating against other naval myth units and can also sink ships with ease. Due to the fact that they are killed easily they shouldn't engage groups of ships on their own. While their special attack guarantees that they will sink at least one, it's generally not worth it as one ship is cheaper than a Nereid. They will need back up from ranged ships if expected to survive. They are weak against ram ships, The Argo and Heroes, though only ranged Heroes and can attack a Nereid unless the Nereid gets too close to the shore.


Scientific name -- Nymphae thalassi
Size -- Human-sized
Diet -- Fish, sea weed

The Nereids were the fifty nymphs of the sea. Many of them had important roles in mythology. They, like most nymphs, are beautiful creatures. The Nereids were often accompanied by hosts of sea creatures in their roving. But when the gentle nymphs went into battle, they rode fierce sharks who carried their mistresses tirelessly.


  • Prior to the Extended Edition, Nereids had the ability to enter Transport Ships, despite being naval units themselves.
  • Due to a glitch, Mythic Rejuvenation has no effect on Nereids.
