|Description||Prevents enemy from training military units|
Pestilence is Classical Age God Power availble to Ares. It causes military buildings in the target area to stop producing units for 45 seconds. However technologies can still be researched and civilian units can still be produced. Pestilence is best used when attacking an enemy town. Once most of the enemy soldiers are killed this God Power should be cast to ensure that the enemy cannot train any more units, leaving their town defenseless.
