Strategy Edit

Huang Di provides access to the Terracotta Warrior: a very strong Classical Age Myth unit that comes at a reasonable price. Not only does it cause damage upon death, it also return part of its cost which can be invested in producing a replacement Terracotta Warrior. One can also kill their Warriors on purpose to obtain resources to purchase better Myth Units when the Warriors become obsolete.

Huang Di's technologies are mostly beneficial to the economy. Five Grains, for example, cheapens building Farms by a third, which is a significant amount. The Stone Armor technology, on the other hand, is a military technology that makes Terracotta Warriors even more effective upon death. Oracle Bone Script provides both an offensive and economical boost as it makes War Academy units cheaper and easier to mass-produce into an army (this is even more significant for Nü Wa worshippers).

His God Power, Call to Arms, effectively doubles the player's early-game forces, allowing them to fend off attackers more easily, raid more effectively, or even do both at the same time. Saving Call to Arms for later in the game can be used to duplicate a powerful myth unit, which not only saves resources but also grants greater bulk to an army.


Huang Di, also known as the Yellow Emperor, is a legendary Chinese ruler who was among the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors.

Credited with numerous inventions and innovations, Huang Di is the mythological ancestor of the Chinese people. His reign is not only believed to have introduced items like the wheel, coined money, medicine, or weapons, but also to have refined the culture and taught its people many useful skills.

Controversy Edit

Huangdi's appearance is often met with criticism by the Chinese community, especially due to the importance of this figure in contemporary China, as well as continued relevance in modern Taoism. Claims have been made that his portrait resembles an offensive caricature of Chinese people.[1] Furthermore, the history section erroneously conflated the Jade Emperor (Yu Huang Shangdi) and the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) in its original description, provided below. This was corrected in a later patch.

Huangdi is known by many names and titles, including Yu Huang Shangdi, the Yellow Emperor, and the Jade Emperor. He is the lord of deities and guardian of heaven.

He began as an apprentice to Yuanshi Tianzun, the original and primordial god of heaven, who at the beginning of each age gives his students the Scriptures of the Magic Jewel and instructs them in Taoism from his home on Mount Kunlun. Huangdi left, seeking isolation to cultivate his Tao, and overcame 3,200 trials over the course of 200 million years. When he returned, a powerful demon who had overcome 3,000 trials of his own was on the cusp of victory over all the other gods of heaven, and Huangdi alone was powerful enough to finally defeat him. For this great victory he was given his many titles, and proclaimed supreme ruler of heaven.
