Timber Harvest is an Archaic Age god power in Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon, available to Shennong. It allows the player to gather Wood 80% faster than normal for 50 seconds.

Strategy Edit

Timber Harvest is similar to Isis' Prosperity god power, although it provides a faster gathering of wood rather than gold. It is best to use in the Classical Age as this is when it will be necessary to construct important buildings, such as houses, war academies and the armory. Players should consider first researching Hand Axe and Shennong's Wheelbarrow improvement to increase the gathering rate of peasants and the amount of wood they can carry. Bow Saw can also be researched if it's affordable. Then players can either cast Timber Harvest with several peasants woodcutting to have an abundance of wood or when they need to assign peasants to other tasks and still ensure a steady income of wood.

In-Game Description Edit

Shennong, the inventor of the axe, shares his wisdom with you. His God Power makes your Villagers gather wood at double rate for a short period of time. Make sure you are in a good position to maximize your wood chopping while this God Power is in Use! To invoke this blessing of the gods, left-click on the Timber Harvest God Power icon at the top of the screen, and then left-click anywhere on the map.
