    I have played this game for quiet some years and I have always noticed that a bunch of myth units barely get used, so I had the idea to change the values of some myth units, add special features to some myth units and a couple of switches of units between gods. Next to that I also had the idea to add a cavalry tag to the cavalry units (explained with the new gods) and I also thought of 2 new gods.


    Cavalry units type:
    Horseman, Chariots, Centaurs, Pegasi, Calydonian boars, Nemean lion and Cerberi now fall under the category Cavalry unit.

    Its an interesting suggestion.
    I think it might help if you did a table showing existing and new and the changes. Ive got a good grasp of the existing units but not good enough to see exactly what the difference is without going in game and checking.

    Adding in new gods has implications for WW favor - in fact all favor use. I tend to prioritise to build certain units as it is so I am not sure I could handle any more choice.

    I had it originally with the other information written in a notepad, but when I copied it, it became a big mess due to the formatting of the external forums so I tried to keep it simple. but thanks for the suggestion.

    I added all the changes to the myth units behind the numbers, if this helps anything.

    Everyone has to love this suggestion mate, I really like idea of new myths, spells and overall great effort, thumbs up

    Also want to give a little bit of feedback:


    • Warriors Courage: I think idea of getting additional BP boost spell will be good, but it should cost max favor, let's say 500. If we make getting BP boosting that easy it will be imo not good, so it should become more expansive. Just my opinion mate.
    • Wall of Atlantis: Yes idea is great again here, but there are so many different tokens and most of them aren't rare, which boosts your defense, add to that some researches, heros and + this spell? I guess it will be too much, maybe lowering that 10% with lower percentage? Or maybe instead of boosting defensive power adding extra Militia (like trojan defense does)?


    1. Winged Sandals: Idea is great but imo 15% speed boost for just 270 favor isn't good, imo percentage should be lowered, to like 7-10% and favor cost should be increased like 400-450.

    Also got few questions, on which spells you think Purification should work? Because we know that now purification removes spells even from cities, besides Protection. So you think for example Purification should work on Wall of Atlantis?

    And another question, in the start of suggestion where you list myth units you mentioned Nemean Lion. Did I miss anything in your post? What unit is it and under which god you suggest it?

    Thanks for replying Ill answer everything you mentioned.

    Warriors courage: I agree with that 10% bp sounds overpowered, but if you use the spell you cant use spells like favourable wind or heroic power which will lesser the bp. I agree it could be highered but I guess it will show off when it is actually being used. (if ever)

    Wall of Atlantis: Youre militia idea is great and is definatly better what I first thought of!

    Winged sandals: This has the same reason as with warriors courage, to use this spell you have to give up some offensive power by not being able to use heroic power, favourable wind or warriors courage. but tweaking can always be done of course.

    Purifcation is something I havent thought off, most of them seem pretty obvious, but wall of atlantis might be a problem. this spell is a bit doubtfull might need to rethink that.

    The Nemean Lion: as seen with ares and hermes, they both have already in use myths (eriny and centaur) if you scroll down a bit to myth changes you can see i replaced the erinys for hades with hades shades and the centaurs for athena with the nemean lion.

    Thanks for putting in effort to give some feedback!

    Cheers mate, I have definitely missed the part about Nemean lion.

    Thanks for the reply and once again definitely this addition will make game more diverse and thanks for your effort, but still imo needs a bit improvements in numbers like boost percentage and favor cost.

    I wanna preface this by saying I absolutely love the effort you put into this
    Almost all the ideas are pretty solid and just need a bit of refining imo, there's only a few I really don't like like the boar change

    1. Pestilence: 10% seems a little low. Bolts are also 200 favour and if they hit a farm with a senate 9 it's almost a 20 hour setback. Maybe increase to 25-50%
    2. Warrior's Courage: Normally I would say easily abusable with Heracles, but the favour cost is high and the payoff is minimal so I like it, very situational just like return from the underworld (375 bp on a grif nuke that kills 5k units)
    3. Centurion: Divine Sign: 4 pop for 50 favour -> 12.5 favour per pop. This: 10 pop for 140 -> 14 favour per pop. Combined with hops being slower I'd say maybe 100 favour? Solid spell though
    4. Man at Arms: Sounds good but you'd have to save up almost your entire favour to use it. Maybe make it 200 favour + doubling, and it would stack additively making 400 favour the triple boost

    Eriny: Not sure if buffing the attack is a good idea, they're already ridiculously strong with more than 5 attack per pop more than the second strongest attacker (grifs)
    Satyr: I like the concept, weaker than slingers in attack/pop but the 75% wall strength reduction would push them over. Is it 75% off the total or a raw -75% where defense can't go lower than 0% boost?

    1. Sparta's Cavalry: 15% boost on mantis is stupid strong. Maybe take them out of the cavalry category, then it's definitely fine. But on a 93 manti nuke that counts as almost 14 extra mantis, which is just ridiculous especially when you stack buffs
    2. Motivation: Bit expensive, but justified if it works like the construction boosts on existing construction orders. Otherwise cheaper with shorter duration
    3. Winged Sandals: I'm assuming this could only be cast from the launch screen, so maybe lower it a bit so you can have 2 in case you miss a timing. Unless it's a city effect, then the cost is perfectly fine and it's less niche
    4. Hippeis: Perfection

    Centaur: Currently centaur's main role is defense against sharp, with double the def/pop of archers. After your change they get a severe nerf to that, while their offense is still **** (22% less attack/pop than slings for 28% more movement speed) Don't think it's really worth it to give up their defensive capabilities for this
    Leviathan: Great idea, maybe buff the stats a little as right now they take the pop of 3.5 slow trans in exchange for the defensive capabilities/pop of LS and only twice as strong as bir on offense. If you're spending favour on these I can imagine wanting them to be a bit more buff

    I'll do number crunching on this later, too busy but want to post my thoughts regardless :p

    Mino: Does the buff stack? A full mino nuke at 140 would get a almost 30% buff, not complaining :D

    Cyclops: I've always been a supporter of the wall destroying idea. However not a fan of nerfing their CS escort capabilities, this would make it so Poseidon isn't the go to CS hero anymore

    Medusa: Don't really like how you change medusa from a great attacker to a defender, but nice concept :)

    Lion: I don't get the special, do you mean boost defense?

    Hades' Shades: Assuming these are for HC purposes? Because the stats are pretty bad for everything

    Boar: Ties in with centaur, there's now no myth that's especially good to defend against sharp, meaning mantis are king. Boars are currently amazing defenders on any blue island as the only weakness is range which means to effectively take them down you would have to get through the harbour. I do like the landvessel idea :p

    Big wall of text, but I'm gonna answer everything :).

    Pestilence: I thought about making this higher, with the only problem this spell getting stacked after the negative spell duration is over. crippling someone to almost not be able to build troops might be a bit too op.

    Warriors courage: /

    Centurion: Seems fair! I'm going to change that.

    Man at Arms: Great idea! Didn't think about the stacking mechanism myself. Definatly will change it into that!

    Eriny: with all the changes to the current myths, I didn't want to get the witches too be worthless. Maybe I overshot it a bit.

    Satyr: Yes it does not go under 0 and it will also not reduce additional defense bonusses (from either myths, tokens or a tower)

    Sparta's cavalry: Seems fair even if its only 5% more then heroic power (which cant be stacked of course)

    Motivation: works on ongoing buildings as well :) just need to think of a duration for the spell

    Winged sandals: It's as a city effect so multiple attacks can use this buff at once!

    Hippeis: /

    Centaur: Will do some switching with the Boar, medusa and the Lion.

    Leviathan: Going to look at the numbers again!

    Minotaur: yes they do, but you could also mix the minos with other olu to get a mixed attack on for example a cs escort or an extra buff to your mantis if send over land.

    Medusa: see Centaur

    Lion: see Centaur

    Shades: Not only for hc's but also fast favor farming and cheap early game flyer nukes.

    Boar: see Centaur

    Thanks for all the feedback fluv!
