Bandit strongholds defend all the Gold.

The Bandit Migdol is a Castle-type building in Age of Mythology, that appears exclusively in the map Valley of Kings. These Migdols belong to Mother Nature, and attack any of the player's units on sight. These guard the majority of the map's Gold Mines, and have to be destroyed, in order to exploit them.

Bandit Migdol

A Migdol, guarding three Gold Mines.

Unfortunately, they already have Boiling Oil researched, so it won't be an easy task destroying them in early game. Thus, it is recommended to use siege weapons, such as Portable Rams or Catapults to get rid of them. Kronos players have an unfair advantage, as they can simply cast Deconstruction to quickly remove a Migdol.

History[]

These Migdol Strongholds are controlled by hostile bandits not affiliated with any team. They protect the only sources of Gold on the map.

Trivia[]

  • They are the second non-Settlement structures that appear in a random map, and belongs to Mother Nature, along with the Farms in Open Fields.
  • The Gold Mines they guard always appear in trios.
