“Ragnarok is upon you, children of Midgard. Baldr calls you to serve Asgard!”—Baldr upon casting Ragnarok.
Ragnarok is a god power in Age of Empires: Mythologies available to worshipers of Baldr. It improves human soldiers for three turns and summons free soldiers at specific buildings to serve the player.
Before casting Ragnarok, players are advised to first check that all of their Town Centers and Shrines do not share their tiles with existing units. When cast, Ragnarok will summon free Huskarls at each of these buildings ready to fight for the player. As Shrines are actually cheaper than Huskarls, players may even build as many of these as possible around their Town Centers to be granted the highest amount of free soldiers as possible at a reduced cost. To make the most of Ragnarok, players should first seek to secure as many Settlements on the map as possible and even try to reach maximum population before casting this god power. Afterwards, it is always possible to demolish any excessive Shrines and replace them with more necessary buildings.
Using Ragnarok has both defensive and offensive uses. Defensively, it can help save a player if they are short on soldiers by granting them a free supply of heavy infantry to fight off an incoming attack. Offensively of course, those free soldiers can also overwhelm the enemy who may not be able to produce as many units to counter this onslaught. But Ragnarok also grants the following bonuses to all human soldiers for the next three turns:
- +15% Attack
- +2 Movement
- x1.2 Defense
For a brief period, the player's soldiers are much more efficient on the battlefield and can reach the enemy town much faster. If the player already has soldiers close to the enemy town, they can simply send everything they have to mow down all units in training and even buildings for a quick victory.
