|—Arkantos's first encounter with a Wadjet|
Special ability[edit | edit source]
Regenerate at 1 HP per second.
Attack bonuses[edit | edit source]
- Myth units ×3
- Heroes ×0.25
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Wadjets attack their foes by spitting poisonous spray at them, dealing high pierce damage. They make excellent support units in the Classical Age, especially when used defensively, but are vulnerable in melee situations. They are usually outclassed by stronger myth units in later Ages, though Wadjets slowly regenerate hit points over time. As with most ranged myth units, they are very weak against heroes. Doing no hack or crush damage, they are also abysmal against buildings.
Changelog[edit | edit source]
Age of Mythology[edit | edit source]
- Wadjets have 240 hit points, 20 hack armor, 30 pierce armor, and no bonus versus other myth units.
The Titans[edit | edit source]
- With patch 1.02, Wadjets have 260 hit points, 25 hack armor, and 25 pierce armor.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The goddess Wadjet isn't always depicted with wings, but when she is, she has brightly colored bird-like wings instead of the bat-like wings used by the Wadjet in-game.
- The wings appear to have been scaled down from the Nidhogg, with different animations.
- Wadjet has a spectacle pattern on her hood in the game, which is strange considering that's a trait of Indian cobras, a species of cobra that is not native to Egypt.
Mythology[edit | edit source]
|“||Scientific name -- Naja uraea
Size -- about 12' long
Diet -- large mammals and reptiles
The Wadjet is named for the serpent goddess who appears in snake form on the crown of the pharaoh. Her name means "papyrus-colored-one". The serpent Wadjet can spit venom at a long range, though the vestigial wings are used only to lift the heavy cobra hood above the sand.
