The Terracotta Warrior is a Classical Age myth unit in Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon. It is available to worshipers of Huang Di.

Special Ability Edit

After death, the Terracotta Warrior refunds 20 wood and 2 favor (+/- 2 wood due to what appears to be rounding error). In addition, it expels lethal dust upon death dealing 15 pierce damage within 7 meters range, not unlike the Lampades, Carcinos, or Scarab.

Attack Bonuses Edit

  • Myth Unit x3
  • Hero x0.5

Upgrades Edit

Specific Edit

  • StoneArmor Stone Armor (Huang Di): doubles damage of expelled dust.

Strategy Edit

Similar to Automatons, they are comparatively weak to other myth units but make up for it in low resource and population cost. Their death-based bonuses, combined with their ease of mass-production, make them an ideal pick for "disposable" troops. Their partial cost refund assists in their capability to be replaced and otherwise makes their loss more bearable than other units. Their death dust can be beneficial both for suicide raids and defensive actions, inflicting that extra bit of damage to whoever cuts them down. Even more powerful units can fall through personally killing too many Terracotta Warriors, particularly with the Stone Armor upgrade.

Soldiers of the Terracotta Army are a formidable force loyal to the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. When the emperor passed away, a ceremonial burial was held and an army of over 8000 clay soldiers was sealed in the emperor's tomb in order to protect him in his afterlife. Each soldier is equipped with a range of weapons and the ranks include both infantry units and units on horseback.
