Equipment SlotsEdit



The War Elephant was a rider mounted on a elephant in a military role. Before, being used in battle the Bull(male elephant) would be captured in the wild and tamed to serve it's military purpose. When matured it would be paired with a rider, added armor, and sent to the front lines. For armor they would put either cloth or metals depending on the situation. Because the elephant could withstand a line of spears, unlike horses, it was favored for breaking enemy lines. Later, they would add archers, artillery, or supplies using the elephant as the carrier.


 *It does splash damage to units in roughly a 120-degree arc in front of it.

  • To reduce damage from an elephant keep your units slightly apart.
  • As an Egyptian player look out for enemy priests which might be trying to convert your elephants
  • As Elephants are extremely tanky, fast as well as having a crush attack with a multiplier against building, they make good units for raiding
