Rain is an Egyptian Archaic Age god power in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Ra. When cast, it boosts Farm gathering rates for all players: by 200% for the player in question and allies, and by 100% for all other players. No other god powers can be invoked while Rain is in effect.

Rain is a god power shield, i.e. while it is in effect, no other god powers can be cast.

Strategy Edit

Like most economic god powers, Rain is best used early on to gain an edge in terms of resources over an enemy. In this case, it is best to maximize its effect by having as many Laborers farm during the power's effect. However, if a player also worships Bast, it is best to research Sacred Cats and Plow before casting this power in order to exploit the improved gather rate.

Rain can also be used later as a blocker to prevent opponents from using their god powers in battle.

In team games, Rain provides a nice boost to the economy of the entire team, especially if the player has Atlanteans as allies, as their Citizens gather resources nearly three times as quickly as other villagers.
