Spirited Charge is a Greek myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Hermes and can be researched at the Stable. Once researched, it increases cavalry speed and attack by +10%.

History[]

Hermes was known for his speed and athleticism and was said to have invented the race as a competitive sport. Statues of Hermes were positioned at gymnasiums and stadiums throughout Greece.

Greek cavalry could not truly charge, as their saddles did not have the stirrups which allowed later medieval cavalry to brace the impact of a lance against the weight of a mount.
