The ancient gods of Olympus are at your finger tips in Gods of Olympus. Create a fortified city and wield the power of legendary Greek gods such as Zeus, Ares, Athena, and more as you conquer your foes. We’ll help you master the power of the gods with our Gods of Olympus cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Use your gods’ abilities often!
Your starting god, Zeus, has Chain Lightning as his first ability. Chain lightning does heavy damage to buildings and units around Zeus, and they jump to additional targets. Use this ability often, as the cooldown on it is relatively short and it can make quick work of buildings and small groups of units. The same goes for just about any other god – use their starting abilities as much as you can! You can check their cooldowns by looking at their selection portraits at the top left.
2. Power up your gods!
If you go back to the Pantheon, you can power up your gods. You can spend gold here to either upgrade their health, strength, or abilities. Be sure to come back every now and then to spend your gold, as there isn’t anything else you can spend it on. As they are your main source of damage, keeping your gods upgraded is very important!
3. Upgrade your towers first!
You can upgrades the various temples of the gods, but we highly recommend upgrading your defensive towers first. The gods’ temple grant passive bonuses to your gods and troops, but until you sink a vast amount of upgrades into them, their effects will be hardly noticeable. Arrow towers, garrisons, and other defensive structures should be upgraded first. Their attack power will increase, they will produce more troops, and so forth. They are much more helpful early on than stat increases.
4. Pick Athena as your second god!
When you first start out, you can select one of the other five gods to join your cause. We recommend going with Athena. Athena is a “tank” god, meaning that she can soak up tons of damage. Her health pool is naturally high, and her second ability, Aegis, reduces incoming damage by a whopping 70%! Her utility is just too great to pass up. During combat, be sure to deploy Athena first so that she has the attention of any possible threat.
5. Don’t stop deploying troops!
During defensive phase, you will not have access to your gods. Instead, you’ll have to depend on your troops. Be sure you have set up enough academies and defensive towers. Additionally, every couple of seconds, you can summon a group of troops at any building you desire. Make sure to do this the second the ability comes off cooldown; during the later levels you will get bombarded and if you don’t have a steady stream of troops moving out, you will get easily overrun!
