Have you tried taking one down at 8:00 minutes with your classic army?

Also the units are not overly expensive. It only takes a few elephants to do quite a bit of damage to the enemy city. Then as he sends his entire army to fight those eles, send a couple chariots to raid, A/E, and that should screw him entirly and then he'll resign.

They cost 400g 10f IIRC so its relatively easy to make a couple as soon as you adv to heroic. Their units are not that expensive, and they are great, so thats why they cost more.

Food starts with f as well as favour, so just putting f could confuse people who don't know how much it costs.

Yes, I actually thought of that, but I also thought that not many buildings cost food (none that I can think of right now), and that most "fortress" type buildings cost favor.
Although some people might not know that so I'll try to be more careful next time.

Good point, I didn't think of that. But not many buildings cost favour. Excluding expansion pack buildings the only ones I can think of are fortress type buildings. If someone knows that other fortress buildings cost favour they are likely to know that midgols do too.

what are you talking about? migdols are very ez to spam in later ages as you only really need one resource:gold. They have the most hp and possibly the most attack. And miggy units are very strong. migdols are totally worth the cost

i hate migdols


1.Norse have to pay 250g 250w and 5 favor

2 greeks have to pay 300g 300w and i think 7 favor?not sure on the favor

3atties have to pay 300g 300w and 8 favor

Eggys get theres for 400g and 10 favor i think it needs to be raised to like 650 gold and 10 favor


Cid Highwind is the BEST final Fasntsy caracter ever!!

In my opinion egyptians are pretty weak without migdol units to buff up their army. I mean come on... look at it.

-Chariot archers can be pumped out in seconds flat almost anywhere, and as their counter infantry they're a nifty unit.

-Camelry are good not only against archers but other cavalry. Probably the most versatile egyptian human unit.

-Elephants... they're big, elephanty, and yeah. It's a good unit if you want to seige someone but are worried about some cavalry popping into the scene.

Migdols secure gold,, the life line of eggy. Plus they produce fast training archers and / or the most op human unit in the game (elephants) Under the right god paths you can spam those op eles in a few seconds as long as you get your econ up and going.

R u crazy? that would render the egyptians to almost as bad as Atlantean. And then it would be basically a 2 civ. game. If u do not know the best way to defeat a Eggy is in the classical then u shouldnt be playing this game. That would mean if u played egyptian in everyage u'd be weak.

a migdol/rax combo is very good. A good combo vs greek is ele, spearmen army, with mu and hero. But that is very very food heavy, so hard to exxecute.
