Topic Subject:Loki and Myth Units (Retail Version)
posted 31 October 2002 11:10 AM EDT (US)         

I have been following the Age of Mythology for some time, although I was not in the Alpha or Beta. I got the Retail version yesterday (EB in Northern VA).

When reviewing the tech tree in the game I noticed that many of the Norse Myth Units cost only Favor when Loki is your Major God. I know Loki is supposed to get a discount on Myth Units, but paying less than 30 resouces for a giant seems like too much of a discount.

Has anyone else noticed this?
Is this the intended cost, or is it a mistake?

Erm...dunno about the tech tree, but in the game, the cost is fine.

Give me money, and I might feel generous enough to say something kind.

Loki is a Myth Unit oriented god so he gets discounted Myth units less in cost of favor, food, wood or gold (whichever applies)

thanks for the quick response. It was late last night and I was just looking at the tech tree... I'll start a game as Loki this evening and check the costs in the game just (just to make myself feel better<g> ).

Kumar Shah:
Thanks for the reply. I know Loki is grants a discount to Myth Units, I had just noticed in the Tech tree (in Game) that many Norse Myth Units have a cost of only Favor (no gold, wood, or food) when Lokis is the Major God. This would be a 100% discount on the non-Favor resource... and that is what concerned me. But if the Myth Units' cost in the game are correct (as dragons89 said), then I am much happier.

It is impossible to mass them any way as they take up to much pop and heros can destroy them easily. Myth units are meant to back up your normal units.

Sun God:
I got it at the EB at Fair Oaks Mall (in Fairfax).
I heard from a friend that the EB in Springfield Mall has copies and they are selling them starting at 3:00pm today.

Hope that helps...

Good Luck,
