Plenty is a Greek Mythic Age god power in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Hephaestus. When cast, it creates a Plenty Vault that generates 15 food, 15 wood, and 15 gold every five seconds, effectively generating three per resource per second (180 per minute).

Resource trickle comparison[edit | edit source]

There are quite a few means of auto-generating resources in Age of Mythology. The following list shows all the means there are to illustrate the value of the Plenty.

  1. The rate can be increased by 10% by researching Horns of Consecration.
  2. Gardens can be tasked to generate any resource, but they only generate one at a time.
  3. The Plenty Vault generates all three resources simultaneously.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Vault is indestructible but can be captured by enemy units as it is controlled by whoever has the most military units in its vicinity. Because of this, it is better to place the Vault in a well defended area in order to prevent an enemy to get the advantage of the Vault. It is useful since it does the work of several Villagers and thus frees up some population space. In addition, resources are usually running low by the Mythic Age and the Plenty Vault generates an infinite amount of resources.

Appearances on random maps[edit | edit source]

The Vault has a key role on the King of the Hill and Silk Road random maps. Those also generate resources to whichever player holds onto them but the trickle is much lower (about 1 food, 1 wood, and 1 gold per second). In the former, players can capture a Vault located at the center of the map and hold onto it for 8 minutes. Doing so will secure the player automatic victory. In the latter, there are several Vaults scattered across the map that players can capture but those only generate resources.
