Halo of the Sun is an Atlantean myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Helios and can be researched at the Dock or Palace. Once researched, it increases the crush and pierce attack of Fire Siphons by +15% and the hack attack of Fireships by +20%.


The Titans[]

  • Halo of the Sun costs 350 gold and 20 favor.
  • Halo of the Sun increases crush damage of Fire Siphons by 25%.

Extended Edition[]

  • Halo of the Sun costs 300 gold and 20 favor.
  • After Patch 2.7, Halo of the Sun increases both crush and pierce damage of Fire Siphons by 15%.


Thereafter, because they had so honored Helios, the Titan returned to Atlantis, and in his great temple there set a flame that could be extinguished by neither wind nor water. The Atlanteans carried this flame to every land they conquered and with it, the light of Atlantean wisdom.
