Hesperides is an Atlantean Heroic Age god power in Age of Mythology: The Titans that is available to worshipers of Theia. When invoked, it creates a Hesperides Tree, a large tree at which Dryads can be trained. Dryads are trained very quickly and cost only 150 gold, making them one of the cheapest myth units. Only five Dryads per player can be in play at any one time. The Hesperides Tree can be captured by any player if they have enough troops close to it.

Hesperides is a god power shield, i.e. while it is in effect, no other god powers can be invoked in the vicinity of the Tree. It can be invoked twice in a game.

Strategy[]

Hesperides Trees' shielding ability makes their placement a strategic choice. Putting one close to a front line prevents the opponent from using god powers there but leaves it open to capture by the enemy. The god power-blocking effect can be further enhanced with nearby player/ally-controlled Monuments to Isis.
