The Titan is an extremely powerful Myth Unit available to all civilizations in Age of Mythology: The Titans. Each of the five main civilizations have their own unique Titan, although they all share their stats and their attacks.
Special Attack Edit
Ground Smash: sends adjacent enemy units flying away, causing 60 hack damage and briefly stunning them. This works on all human units and myth units (excluding Titans). Recharge time: 8 seconds.
- Oracle (Apollo): Increases LOS by 6.
- Bacchanalia (Dionysus): Increases hit points by 5%.
- Monstrous Rage (Hera): Increases attack by 25%.
- Thurisaz Rune (Bragi): increases movement speed by 12%.
- Mythic Rejuvenation (Hekate): Regenerates 2.0 HP/second.
- Eyes of Atlas (Atlas): Increases LOS by 9.
Titans are very large, and have a whopping 7 000 HP, along with extremely high armor values and massive attack damage, which affects units and buildings in a large area. They attack with hack and crush damage - they are able to destroy buildings very quickly, but they deal quite low damage to regular units with which many have very high crush resistance.
Titan also take bonus damage from Heroes and cannot be healed by anything, except for the Mythic Rejuvenation technology granted by Hekate. They are considered myth units and benefit from any technologies that improve all Myth Units (such as Monstrous Rage), or all units (such as Bacchanalia).
To obtain a Titan a Titan Gate must be opened. To do this, Secrets of the Titans must be researched at a Town Center, which will grant the player the Titan Gate god power, once the god power is invoked a Titan Gate will appear which must then be excavated by villagers or Norse infantry to release a Titan.
The Greeks have Cerberus, a monstrous three-headed humanoid canine. If Hera is chosen for the Mythic Age her Monstrous Rage upgrade will increase the Titan's attack damage from 70 to 88. Also, worshiping Dionysus grants the Bacchanalia upgrade, which will increase the Titan's hit points by 350. Cerberus appears as the main antagonist in the Cerberus scenario.
The Egyptians summons a giant humanoid bird, (either Ra, Horus or Ra-Horakhty.) Unlike the other Titans, he is summoned from the heavens instead of being unearthed. The Egyptians do not possess any technologies that can aid the Titan, though the Eclipse God Power of Bast worshipers can temporarily boost its attack and movement speed.
The Norse may employ a massive Frost Giant/Troll with a large hammer made of ice, likely Ymir. If Bragi is chosen for the Heroic Age his Thurisaz Rune upgrade will increase the Titan's movement speed from 3.75 to 4.20 meters/second. Ymir appears as the main antagonist in the Rampage scenario.
The Atlanteans control a giant lava golem with crystals spikes sprouting from its back and elbows. It is unknown which mythological being it represents. If Hekate is chosen for the Mythic Age, her Mythic Rejuvenation upgrade will allow the Titan to slowly regenerate its hit points.
The Chinese call upon Pangu, a human-like horned giant that separated Yin and Yang. He plays a relevant role in the plot of the Tale of the Dragon campaign. The Chinese do not have any technologies that assist the Titan. The main objective of the Yin and Yang scenario is to summon Pangu.
There are 3 "greater" Titan units in The New Atlantis campaign, each possessing 50,000 HP and regenerating hit points so fast that they are practically invincible.
- Main article: Prometheus
- Main article: Kronos
If Kronos and Prometheus fight, the result will be inconclusive (neither can permanently harm the other, due to their regeneration.)
- Main article: Gaia (Goddess)
Fall of the Trident campaign Edit
- Guardian: Strong enough to defeat "lesser" Titans. It is half the height of a Titan.
- Living Poseidon Statue: Strong enough to defeat "lesser" Titans. It is 75% the height of a Titan.
- Osiris: The strongest unit in the game. He is the size of a Titan.
The New Atlantis campaign Edit
The first Titan unit is encountered in Betrayal at Sikyos, the seventh scenario of The New Atlantis campaign where the Titan Prometheus has broken free and is causing wreckage through the city of Sikyos. Amanra and Ajax attempt to save Kastor and escape the city with the use of Rocs. After they rendezvous, Arkantos reveals to them that three Titans have actually been released. One is Ymir, crushing the villages in the Norselands, the second, Cerberus causing havoc in Egypt, and the third is Prometheus. Amanra decides to defeat Cerberus first, for she wants to save Egypt, her homeland.
In the Cerberus scenario, the heroes use the Son of Osiris to once again awaken the Guardian. The Guardian awakens and fights Cerberus. The Guardian proves more than a match and defeats the Titan personally.
In the Rampage scenario, the heroes then head towards the Norselands, where they meet the former notorious Frost Giant chieftain, King Folstag. King Folstag aids them with his Titan-freezing breath, as well as summoning the great dragon Nidhogg, who defeats Ymir.
In the Making Amends scenario, the heroes return to the city of Sikyos, now a burnt and damaged land. Prometheus is continuing to wreak havoc here, and is being powered by his destruction. Arkantos comes to the heroes again and reveals to them that Gaia, along with all the other Titans, also gained power, and that they can use that power to weaken Prometheus. Gaia's settlements are built on the burnt lands, causing lush to spread. The Titan weakens, and the heroes finally succeed in overcoming and bringing it down. Arkantos congratulates his son on his work, but they know the work is still not done.
In the War of the Titans scenario, the heroes find themselves in Old Atlantis, now a sunken chain of islands. the Servant of Kronos reveals to the heroes that Kronos is well on his way to being freed from Tartarus. The heroes notice that Gaia is on their side, and she grants them four mystical seeds that, if planted in four sacred pools scattered around the islands, can summon her. The heroes plant the seeds, instantly growing giant trees glowing with power. Not too long after the trees are planted, Kronos breaks free from his prison. Kronos begins to advance towards the trees, knowing that he has to destroy them before they awaken his mother, Gaia. He fails and Gaia awakens and sends Kronos back into Tartarus, saving the Atlanteans and the world.
Tale of the Dragon campaign Edit
In the Yin and Yang scenario of the Tale of the Dragon campaign, Jiao-Long must reach the altar of Pangu to summon him in order for him to restore the balance to the Yin and Yang, but it is no easy task as the altar is at top of a mountain guarded by the Forces of Chaos, as if that weren't enough, Danzhu has set up camp nearby and sends his forces to attack Jiao-Long. Jiao-Long manages to overcome these obstacles and summons Pangu. Once summoned, Pangu restores the balance to the Yin and Yang, bringing an end to the campaign.
