Sentinel is a Greek god power in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Hades. When invoked on the player's or an ally's Town Center, it creates up to five Sentinels around that Town Center.

Unit Edit

Sentinels are stone archers that will fire at any enemies within their considerable range. Although immobile, made of stone, and having armor stats comparable to buildings, Sentinels benefit from archer upgrades as they are considered archers, just not human ones.

God bonuses and upgrades Edit

General Edit

Hades increases attack by 10%.

Strategy Edit

One of the Sentinels being spawned around a Town Center.

Sentinels have decent attacking and defensive attributes. This god power is best used early in the game, as the statues can quickly kill enemy scouts and support units when defending a town. They are less useful from the Heroic Age as they are easily destroyed by siege weapons. Sentinel can also be used to combat a rush. Placing Sentinels early in the game then building other defensive structures such as towers and walls to protect the Town Center is useful for a turtling strategy. Sentinels are also useful to defend a recently built outlying Town Center. If there is an object blocking the place where the Sentinel would be created, the Sentinel will be created at the closest available space next to the object, if possible, otherwise, no Sentinel will be created, this is why it is important to keep the area around a Town Center clear.

Changelog Edit

Age of Mythology Edit

  • Sentinel spawns four Sentinels.

Trivia Edit

  • Before Tale of the Dragon, Sentinel could only be invoked twice per Town Center resulting in a maximum of eight Sentinels per Town Center.

Mythology Edit

"Hades jealously guards his subterranean realm. His dark kingdom is surrounded by dangerous rivers and guarded by fearsome creatures. These sentinels, most often seen around settlements favored by the dark god, defend his interests above ground as fiercely as he defends his interests below ground."
