Mithril Breastplate is a Norse myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Forseti and can be researched at the Armory. Once researched, it decreases the hack vulnerability of Ulfsarks by 10%.

History Edit

"Easy to work and harder than steel, a mithril breastplate was a treasure indeed. Conventional weapons could not pierce the untarnished, silvery metal.

"Shields ye there can choose, and smooth-shaven spears, gold-red helms, and of Huns a multitude, silver-gilt saddle-cloths, sarks gory-red, the dart's obstruction, and bit-gripping steeds."

-- The Poetic Eddas, The Lay of Atli"

Trivia Edit

  • This technology is based on the "small shirt of mail" made of the fictional metal mithril from the written works of J.R.R. Tolkien, notably The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series, which were inspired by Norse mythology.
