Shoulder of Talos is a Greek myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Hephaestus and can be researched at the Temple. Once researched, it upgrades Silver Colossi to Gold Colossi, increasing their hit points by +200 and making them 20% less vulnerable to hack attacks.

Mythology[edit | edit source]

On the return voyage of Jason and the Argonauts, they needed to stop and resupply on the Isle of Crete, but the sorcerous Medea warned them of Talos. When Talos appeared and began to throw rocks at the Argo, Medea played her lyre to coax him to sleep. She then pulled out the bronze pin that held in his blood and the giant collapsed. Jason and his men could then collect food and water before continuing their voyage.
