The Orichalkos Wall an Atlantean Mythic Age wall in Age of Mythology: The Titans. It is the upgrade of the Iron Wall and their final wall upgrade.

Due to its sheer amount of HP, the Orickalkos Wall is the second best wall in the game, surpassing the Egyptian Citadel Walls' HP by 100, which makes it the ideal wall for a formidable defense. Only the Chinese Great Wall surpasses the Orichalkos Wall, by 100 HP.

This, however, is offset by the fact that they are much more expensive, comparatively speaking, than normal walls (although still cheap), and the fact that they require four upgrades to be built instead of three like the Citadel Walls.


Great veins of valuable ores discovered deep within the heart of Atlantis contributed to its early prominence and wealth. Such ores were so plentiful and mined in such quantity that the metals they yielded weren't reserved just for costly weapons and tools. Building were roofed with shingles of shining metals; even the poorest Atlantean citizen had metal tools, household implements, weapons and jewelry. However, the most remarkable sign of the fabulous prosperity, power and wealth of Atlantis were the gleaming metal walls that ringed the island and its capital city. Walls of orichalkos, the most precious Atlantean metal, enclosed the cloisters of the Caladrian Order, the Palace complexes of the Theocrat and all temples of the Titans.
