Alright, I'm done with this part of the guide...as soon as someone makes an Early Agartha/Strategy page there I'll post it.


Now...Atlantis is next in my to-do list.

I joined a blitz yesterday as Agartha. I had a slow start, but took almost no losses during my indie conquest spree. Except troglodytes. I couldn't keep them alive. I didn't bother for them after the first few proved ineffective, and the various-sized Agarthans mashed the opposition without any real losses. Helheim's Blade Wind proved a bit more difficult, but it was just a minor loss. An army here or there isn't that important, is it?

Did you use an imprisoned bless pretender, or an awake expansion one?

I used imprisoned Nature 9 Fire 4 dominion 8 Monolith, and pretty good scales (Ord 3 Prod 2 Death 3). My opponents riduculed my choice, even if Boron himself had said that to be a terrifying combo earlier on. Go figure. Well, I'll beat them in that game yet, and then we'll see! (That, or I get beaten and have to try again. )

Of course they can trample cavalry, but at 50 gp a pop, against Blade Wind opposition, they aren't cost-effective.

Yes, Trogs are weak againist missile fire. But at the beginning of the game when resources are low they can be brought on mass and make good flanking units which can pretty much run over anything the indys have. Luckly they have quite large amount of HPs and have 7 protection so they can take a few hits from missiles before going down.

For EA Agartha you can try imprisoned Ageless Olm pretender with W9 E9 N6 scales. Makes their sacred troops quite nasty. Actually Ageless Olm doesn't cost much design points and starts with E1 W1 so hes good bless platform.
