Asbestos Shields is a campaign-exclusive technology in Age of Mythology that is only available at the Dwarven Forge, which in turn is only featured in The Dwarven Forge, a scenario in Fall of the Trident. Once researched, it adds a 20% defensive bonus against attacks from Fire Giants to infantry, cavalry, and hero units.
- Asbestos Shields is the only technology in the game that offers an advantage against a single unit.
- The tech tree file reveals that this technology contains no coded effects. Its effects are actually implemented using triggers (by reducing the attack of hostile Fire Giants).
"By mining the strongest ore and using special forging techniques that only the Dwarven forge offers, the Dwarves have perfected custom shields to protect them during their constant struggle against giants in the Norselands."
