Lightning Storm is a Greek Mythic Age god power in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Hera. When cast, it deals significant amounts of damage to enemy units in the target area. The more units there are in the area, the more damage is done. It does not harm friendly units and deals almost no damage to buildings. It can inflict a maximum of ~2250 damage to enemy units over the duration. Each bolt is classified as pierce damage.

Strategy Edit

Lightning Storm is the polar opposite of the Earthquake god power, which devastates buildings but does little damage to units. As such, it should be used when the opposite situation pertains. It is superb for destroying the force defending an enemy town and also in the open field, where it can turn the tide of a battle to the player's side, especially since it does not harm the player's own units. It is also very useful defensively when caught off-guard, as the attacking force will suffer huge losses and will be easier to defend against.
