Hera in legend is the queen of the gods and wife of Zeus. In Age of Mythology, she is a Mythic Age Greek minor god. Appropriately, she is only accessible to worshipers of Zeus.

Attributes Edit

God Power Edit

  • LightningStormIcon Lightning Storm: Unleashes an electrical storm that devastates enemy units.

Technologies Edit

Myth Units Edit

  • MedusaIcon Medusa: A ranged unit whose special attack turns an enemy unit to stone.
  • CarcinosIcon Carcinos: A tough naval myth unit that has hack and crush attacks.

Strategy Edit

Hera improves myth units and buildings. Her aquatic myth unit, the Carcinos, can easily sink arrow ships and siege ships. Her land myth unit, the Medusa, is adequate at ranged support but has a deadly special attack. It is especially destructive to a group of tough and expensive myth units, or elite human units such as War Elephants. However, Titans, Qilins, and, naturally, Heroes are immune to petrification.

Hera's technologies increase the Medusa's hit points and boost the attacks of the Medusa, Carcinos and all other myth units. This makes Myth Units even more dangerous, and with favor-spawning Zeus as the major god, they are easy to come by. The Greek Titan is especially boosted from Monstrous Rage, and combined with the Bacchanalia technology (available to Dionysus), it becomes the most powerful Titan, with 88 attack and 7349 HP, a substantial upgrade.

Hera's god power, Lightning Storm, can almost completely destroy an enemy army, leaving opponents very vulnerable to, for example, attacks by lots of souped-up myth units.

Hera also has a defensive technology; Athenian Wall substantially increases the hit points of all buildings. Lightning Storm can be used in conjunction with this to provide formidable protection.

Mythology Edit

"The goddess of marriage and birth, and queen of Olympus, she was both the wife and sister of Zeus. She is usually seen with a scepter, diadem, a cow, or peacock. She bore Zeus many children, including Ares, but also was tested by his incessant infidelity. She punished her rivals and their offspring, and even Zeus feared her wrath at times. She represented the ideal of married womanhood, being beautiful, stately, and very clever."
