My GP polls are now over! This is my new poll: worst classical MU. Please state why you think it is your least favorite? most useless MU.
This is my vote: Wadjet. Not really strong against other Classical myth units. Also needs meat shields to be effective.

troll: slow and sux- but bright side is he's practically a ranged hero with the myth unit bonus..

I'd say Wadjet. Trolls are really hard to kill without a hero because they just heal as soon as they hit your human units.

Wadjet or Sphinx.

Reason: The Wadjet is just too weak and the Sphinx cost too much favour to be really effective in classical.


During the Great Nordic War (1700-1720), he was commander of the danish navy, which defeaded the swedish army at Kristiania (modern Oslo). After the war, he was killed in a duel on Nov. 12, 1720 just outside Hamburg, Germany, during a travel to England.

the Sphinx cost too much favour to be really effective in classical.

Do a set bo and you will have enough favor to get sphinx which are good raiders too.

Set bo = As soon as the game starts get a monument with your 2 villagers+pharaoh. Once you hit the aging button, get the second monument up.

Eggies dont have problems with favor. The 2 fist monuments are enough to get you plenty sphinx on classical.

Wadjests are the worst mu simple cause they suck as much as trolls but unlike trolls, they dont get a multiplier against mus.

Is Poseidon's naval mu available in Classical? If so then there's my vote. Who needs a naval scout? Even a fishing ship is better, because then at least he can gather food.

If not, I'll go with the Wadjet. Trolls may suck but it's the best thing to a ranged hero that the Norse get, and the only pierce damage unit until Mythic when they get the ballista.

I play Isis and Ra and IMO Sphinx are OK as a meatshield and Ok at taking out buildings or towers if necessary but not that good at fighting units. Wadjets are better actulally.. they cost less res and favor and do way more dmg than shpinx.. when massed they can win a battle for you.

worst = Troll

It's a shame the wadjets arn't used more often, hopefully the will be with the next upcoming patch

Wadjets are fine, I used to use em all the time as Set, now I'm stuck with the sphinx.... in my opinion, he's just not worth it for 120 food early on and 20 favour... I could use the favour for the woodcutting tech or the farming tech instead.... or the food for 2 spearman.

I'm going to go way off to the left and pick Cyclops as the worst Classical Unit. He's wildly spendy, incredibly slow, and he seems determined to walk around battles being hit trying to use his special on some turd in the back row. Also, the animation for said special takes an eternity, more time for him to sit around getting pounded.

I'm actually a big fan of both the Troll and the Wadjet, simply because they're so cheap. Wood is the fastest-gathering resource, so you can easily throw in a troll/wadjet or two in an attack force, and boost your combat power significantly. While your other units cause mayhem, these guys make a mince of stray villies and units, and as others have pointed out, if you're facing Nidhogg or Phoenixes, you're going to be begging for trolls to step in and bat cleanup.

Mummy, no one mentioned minotaurs as worst classical MU. Someone said that Trolls heal as they dmg. THat`s true, but did you know that Wedjets regenerate themselves even if they don`t attack. I think it is 1HP/second.

Every MU is bad if they are used alone. If you have the right meatshield, then both wedjets and trolls are quite useful. I have to say Cyclops` because they are expansive, and I would rather 2 minataurs instead of one cyclops.

1 Cyclops = 180F 28Fa
2 Minotaurs= 300F 32 Fa

Favour-wise 2 upgraded minotaurs are better than one Cyclops. My vote goes to Cyclops for being too damn expansive.

Trolls and wadjets are incredibly useful I find.

Throw some RC backed by Trolls/TA at another norse and you'll get great results. Norse have a ton of trouble countering ranged MUs.

Worst MU overall: I say the sphinx. A versitile unit all around but it doesn't excel enough at anything and it costs a lot of favor to get a few upgraded ones out there.

Runner up would be the cyclops. Zeus doesn't get him so he isn't massable. Pos has no use for him as Hermes is a much better choice, and centaurs are good raiders for pos to use with hipps. Hades may go the route but won't be able to gather favor for more than 1-2 of them generally.

Trolls are useful as ranged heroes and early piercing units (example - vs egypt and he has Axeman).
Sphinxes are very good with their high speed for base raiding, being able to take down vills and recourse dropoff points pretty fast.

Just Wadjets have one crucial drawback: My towers move faster!!!

The worst MU is mummy. To be more precise - mummy9011.

I think the worst classical myth unit is a ceniter. They are not very powerfuleygptian or greek units, they would be at least afictive againest norse, otherwise they suk!
