Magic

Magic Access

National Spells

  • Summon Jaguar Toads: 2naturegem Conj 1.nature 11holy 11 ( Jaguar Toadx2) they are small tramplers (only running over common infantry) and spit armor ignoring mortal poison, while also poisoning anyone that don't use spears. They are easy to summon them but They are easy to kill and Undisciplined makes them hard to buff.
  • Summon Jaguars: 25naturegem Conj 3.nature 22holy 11 ( Jaguarx17) like weaker Ozelotls that come in greater numbers using nature gems. Greate and a effectent use of nature gems spending if you have a good bless for them and desperate need lots of troops.
  • Summon Jade Serpent: 3watergem Conj 4.water 22 ( Jade Serpentx1) a big bag of hit points that's a sacred standard and a high strength poison bit. Mix some into troops to improve their morale and way to kill high armored enemies.
  • Summon Tlaloque: 60watergem Conj 7.water 44 ( Tlaloque of the East, Tlaloque of the South, Tlaloque of the West, Tlaloque of the North). Great dump for your Water gems in the late game. Often don't see one unless in a longer game as Mictlan often have other pressing research priorities then reaching Conj 7,
  • Summon Monster Toads: nature 22 Conj 5 8naturegem (summon 3 Monster Toad). Sacred Tramplers that spread poison with their Poisonous Skin and Poisonous Cloud. Likely to Die, but will kill formation as the toads will suicidally trample to the middle of it to spread the poison cloud.
  • Contact Couatl: 40naturegem Conj 4.nature 11astral 11 ( Couatlx1)
  • Bind Beast Bats: 8bloodslave Blood 2.blood 11 ( Beast Batx3). Come online early in-game. not as good fighters as Ozelotl but deal a significant amount of fatigue if they can wound with their poisonous bit. Mixing in some can quickly put monsters to sleep if you can overcome their prot and defenses.
  • Bind Jaguar Fiends: 16bloodslave Blood 4.blood 11fire 11 ( Ozelotlx3). Your Greatest Damage dealer troops. Want to spam a lot of them for your armies when the blood economy is set up.
  • Contact Civateteo: 36bloodslave Blood 5.blood 22death 22 ( Civateteox1). You need your other nation blood mage summons to make her but she is a great stealth Deamon army raider. Also, a Reanimator Priest to free spawn some extra Longdead during downtime.
  • Bind Tzitzimitl: 10bloodslave Blood 5.blood 22astral 22 ( Tzitzimitlx1). Moon Priest can summon these demons which are mini evocations mages in a Demon's body. Lot protection but great at being artily, Hurling their steller bolts.
  • Contact Tlahuelpuchi: 42bloodslave Blood 6.blood 33 ( Tlahuelpuchix1). a Demon Assasin. Ok if you need a Death mage now and don't have the time to Reaserch Blood 7.
  • Contact Onaqui: 101bloodslave Blood 7.blood 44 ( Onaquix1, Beast Batx3). Summon a stronger blood Death mage than the Tlahuelpuchi, being a few boosts from summoning Vampire Lords. They compete with Vampires and other demons for your blood slaves, and those are at the hardest to harvest in the early age.
  • Rain of Jaguars: 40bloodslave Blood 8.blood 66fire 22 ( Ozelotlx14+[lv]). A late-game but more efficient way to mass Ozelotls. something you should aim for as the end approaches because of how good Ozelotls.
