Meteoric Iron Mail is a Norse myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Thor and can be researched at the Dwarven Foundry once Iron Mail is researched. Once researched, it decreases the hack vulnerability of infantry, cavalry, and heroes by 10%.

History[]

Before civilizations mastered the art of forging steel, meteoric iron was among the hardest metals known, and the best for making weapons. Egyptians valued meteoric iron more than gold; King Tutankhamen was buried with several gold daggers but only one of iron. Meteoric iron has a high carbon content, which was difficult to duplicate even by Norse times. As such, a meteoric iron weapon that could hold its edge for so long was considered magical. The Norse sagas mention a warrior who straightened his sword blade with his foot, suggesting that the iron the Norse typically used was of fairly poor quality.
