Geyser is a Chinese Heroic Age god power in Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon that is available to worshipers of He Bo. When cast, it causes multiple powerful rushes of water to spurt out of the earth and devour the enemy. The Geysers will continuously damage units but will disappear after 45 seconds.

Geyser does not affect heroes, Titans, and airborne units, but deals 10 hack damage to all other units; it even deals triple damage against human units and myth units. Each Geyser can burst once every five seconds and has an Area of Effect of 7 meters. Geyser does not harm friendly units.

Strategy Edit

Geyser is quite effective at dispersing large amounts of enemy units. Whether used offensively or defensively, it can help scatter an enemy army, rendering them more vulnerable. For example, it can be used to separate archers from infantry, allowing the player's cavalry to close in for the kill.

Alternatively, it can be used to further aid raiding, such as by casting the Geysers around a group of worker units gathered around a Gold Mine. The workers will be tossed from one Geyser to another, not only taking damage but preventing them from escaping. Geyser is also harmless to friendly units, enabling the player to finish off the weakened units without risk.
