Free drop-off buildings; you can hunt/mine at like 10 places at once and build granaries/mining camps at all of them without any strain on your economy.
Free upgrades; you can advance quicker than any other god and you can do all line/armory upgrades.
Monuments shield from enemy God powers; (except fimbulwinter =( ) you don't have to worry about meteor, hurricane, them turning your vills into pigs, (lol) lightning storm, forest fire, or basically any offensive GP.
Great heroic army; (like all eggy gods) a chariot archer/war ellie combo will take out basically anything except an ulf spam.
Great bod. Cmon guys, admit it. That's why you starting playing her in the 1st place =- {}.

actually there is: a villies building (with the slow eggy build time) a granary takes very long, in that time he could gather recourses by another dropp-off point.

Isis has really no weakness making her a very flexible god, The fact she gets free population, monuments that block god powers in a VERY large radius, cheap techs, and the best minor gods, not to mention one of the best Archaic god powers if not one of THE BEST GPs in the game..

As an Isis player I would say the nicest thing is the 10% off of technologies. Even age advances which makes it really nice.

+3 pop/TC may not sound that great, but it is about +9 pop if you get all three of "your" TCs, which is actually quite a lot and can swing the balance of the game.

Finally, god power blocking monuments REALLY help. A very nice addition, and particularly annoying for whoever has to deal with them.

Fortunately, it is no longer for age advances in TT. A patch removed it because Isis could rush for titan just too quickly. She remains op enough as it is.
+3 pop/TC may not sound that great, but it is about +9 pop if you get all three of "your" TCs, which is actually quite a lot and can swing the balance of the game.
In fact, this is pretty much equivalent to Sekhmet's citadel power, which is a heroic god power after all. The +10 pop are the really relevant thing about the citadel power. Good players usually cast citadel at home and not at a forward TC, because the citadel may under no circumstances be lost, and an enemy force that can raze a regular TC can also raze a citadel in most cases.

An archaic innate bonus that is almost equivalent to a permanent heroic-age god power. Now that is something!
Finally, god power blocking monuments REALLY help. A very nice addition, and particularly annoying for whoever has to deal with them.
A game breaker IMHO. All civs are supposed to have their GPs, with them needing to deal with the GPs that the other sides have. Isis is the only god to have GPs without the opposing side being able to use their own GPs (at least the offensive ones, which are very important). Flaming weapons and Fimbulwinter are exceptions.

Yeah i love eggys because of the free drop points and fast cration migol's with valley of kings but the only problems is that i keep losing against an army of collosi which beat my priests, im a noob so i want to know, which is the best way to deal with strong MU with egiptians?

Daniefer, as Egyptians ur best bet are to mass priests with the Funeral Rites upgrade by worshiping Nephthys
(u have Nephthys as an option for a Heroic age minor god if u play Isis or Set)

Worshiping Osiris is another way for you to counter collosi alot easier because he gives you mummies which can kill any myth unit or human soldier in one shot from using his special. Osiris also grants you the Son of Osiris god power and the New Kingdom tech which grants you two pharoahs instead of one.

As for dealing with MU since you are vsing Collosi there will always be other military units with them so with your Son of Osiris, Mummies, and priests throw in some CA to counter his infantry and some elephants to act as a meatshield while your Son of Osiris and priests deal with the Collosi.

The problem is that most colossus massers are Zeus players who have their bolt power in stock for your SoO...

Yea, i think it should be used very early to make a diffrence.
Lategame your OoS will be killed pretty easy and because both players eco will be big. units will be massed and ur OoS will not make that large diffrence.

because norse have lack of archers i think OoS will do pretty OK versus them. Also garrison in and out with roc is fun. and
can save him from dieing in battle

Getting a Son of Osiris right in classical age sure is helpful, I agree...
Lategame your OoS will be killed pretty easy
Sorry, but it is a known fact that OoS is not counterable... you can ask anyone here concerning that.
units will be massed and ur OoS will not make that large diffrence.
Oh, I am absolutely sure that if I used it, OoS would definitely prevent my defeat lategame... trust me...

I love it when people have no idea what they are talking...

I think he was talkin bout bolt.

Also Soo can make a big dif if used correctly and can be a lifesaver vs colluses and lions that have high pierce armor

I said faking early not classical , i'm 100% sure that my point is right. how earlier you use SoO how stronger it is compared to the armies in middle game then late game.

and that OoS is not countrable.... DUHH its a hero, hero's are not countrable ( exepect norse because they are infantry )

Braza, check your email.

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back.
