Most players will fast heroic with isis. With free towers and gp blocking monuments its hard to stop her from fhing. At which point she will start making elephants, chariot archers maybe some rax units and a few myth units.

I'd advise you not to play Isis, it's not much of a challenge for you due to her being very OP. Plus you'd get flamed for playing Isis every time you play.

1) Cheap improvements
2) Extra population per town center
The god power blocking monuments are useful, but not as good as some people think. Prosperities OK if you need extra gold.

No really good benefits, there are no economic benefits (not including prosperity and flood of the nile) and no benefits for troops. Fast heroic can be beaten with not much difficulty after you learn how to do it.

I play with Isis and I find that she is good. Not over powered like some people call her (the only reason I can think of for people to call her this is the slightly cheaper age advancements which help you get to heroic quickly, but they are not that much cheaper). The gods you can get are good.
Unlike many people I don't fast heroic, I just build a couple of barracks get plenty of spearmen or sometimes axemen, Isis is good at this as you can get more units for each town center (which is useful with such weak units), myth units add the neccessary power for this strategy. This can be a useful strategy as people will expect you to play in a different way.

one minor flaw...heavy gold reliance...only problem is its almost impossible to cut isis off her gold...unless of course your oranos/kronos....

Quoted from You_Are_Pwned:

Indeed, if you want to be loved by other players, only play with Gaia or Set, or maybe Odin, and let them beat you.

Honestly, I don't play Isis... But people are free to play whatever they want. Isis is part of the game, and it's not right to flame people playing Isis. Isis is not a cheat.

Isis is not OP when played by 1600-1700 players.Isis is OP only for the better ratings.Ok she has a/e but i doubt if a rook will be able to take the much out of it or even use it right.Slinger,if u r not 1700+ i advice against playing isis.But if u want to play eggy try ra.Set is not that good to start with.

The reason I play Isis???
She is too sexy to go on waste!
Who cares about a/e...

Spamming forums = Learning english !
Flaming noobs = Break from the lessons...

No, when i was 1600-1700 i won a lot of games that i shouldn't have won, only because i was isis - monument blocking then when opponent started getting titan meteor.

If isis had her momument blocking reduced she wouldn't be overpowered, this is her main advantage.
