I suppose you could use them as troops as long as you use the good ones like Rhinos and such. But they just seem to clog up my population count. In fact earlier, I did manage to organise a good defence with three converted elephants and some other troops.

Most of the time, I kill them and use them for food.

Anything else I could do with them?

And when you get granted Rhinos and hippos and stuff? Not very good for scouting. That's mroe of a gazelle/hyena thing.

On a map like Marsh or Watering Hole you could do more damage with them. I suppose they're alright for being free. Just use them to assert your miggy. After that I'd probably make your army and send them to their deaths at the hands of the enemy to free up pop space

I've seen some crazy things Set players do like messing with a Hades players' villis while trying to get a TC.

and from my set experience, don't hit the villies with them, you can hit the villies, but don't do it first.

get about 3-4 priests, and of course starting wadjet (dummies go anubis, haha), and have them attack the villie first, than the other boars/deer/hyenas can rip them to shreds NP.

Thanks : ) Age Sanctuary doesn't appear to be working surrently, I'll check it later.

I always thought Set was cool (and evil) but the animals (and lack on a good mythic myth unit) put me off for a while.

rhino = good mythic unit to compensate for MU.

croc = good heroic unit to compensate for MU.

croc = even better than rhino in some instances.

FM while defending with only animals/free mu/anscestors. Works best on Watering Hole and is really funny to watch

-> Use for food on medit to get a really early advance time.

-> Use on Marsh/Watering hole vs Isis to guard, and later take Isis' forward TC. Isis army of priests < Set army of priests + Animals.

Um these are the best ones I can think of that Chong Chong uses really well.

Hmm...That way it will take even more time to gather food. You should use pigs to advance fast, not converted animals.

Well...I play Vanilla so I don't really know TT.

On medit or anatolia, I always send them to attack one dock. If he is having a bad start then I might be able to stop his 2nd dock construction.

Yup, you start off with pigs at your TC, while your priest converts animals to bring back to your TC.
