Agamemnon’s unique mechanics

King of Men

Proud and arrogant Agamemnon considers himself the King of Men, and this mechanic comes into play in Total War Saga: Troy. This is depicted by way of a panel that shows you the different titles you can give to your generals. In turn, they’ll gain buffs (usually army-wide) as well as extra motivation.

At first, you’ll want to save up on resources. Much later, however, and thanks to the Lion’s Share mechanic, you’ll amass riches to help you with Agamemnon’s rapid conquests. These will allow you to field more armies, level-up your commanders, and grant them new titles.

Title Requirement Effects
Heqetas
(can have 5)
Level 3 generals +1 motivation
-10% recruitment costs (army)
-5% enemy agent success chance (hero)
+1 local recruitment capacity (province)
Telestas
(can have 3)
Level 5 generals +2 motivation
-1 construction time (region/settlement)
+5 happiness (province)
Lawagetas
(can only have 1)
Level 8 general
Must have a Champion’s Hall building (yellow group in the building browser) constructed in any of your settlements
+3 motivation
+10% melee defense (army)
+10% morale (army)
+10% melee attack (army)
+10% casualty replenishment rate (faction-wide)

The good thing about this mechanic? You don’t need to wait a turn to reassign a general to a different position.

Anyway, here’s an example of a completely filled King of Men panel:

The Lion’s Share

Talk about OP unique mechanics in Total War Saga: Troy, eh? The Lion’s Share mechanic ensures that Agamemnon is always rolling in dough (or grain, bronze, stone, whatever).

Each turn, your vassals provide you with a set amount of all five resources. You can choose to set the slider higher to gain more, but this will confer a diplomatic malus for all your vassals. In my case, I just set the slider to the lowest amount to keep most of my subjects in line.

Alternatively, you could directly request a vassal to give you a lump sum of a resource in one go. This will also confer a penalty due to Agamemnon’s “greed,” and you won’t be able to make these requests if your diplomatic relations with a vassal are too low.

Check out all the subjects Agamemnon could have as you’re progressing through Total War Saga: Troy‘s campaign:

I did experience a small conundrum while playing as Agamemnon. It was next to impossible to confederate the main Greek factions such as Menelaus/Sparta, Odysseus/Ithaca, and Achilles/Phthia. I’m not sure if this is related to any epic missions. For the most part, I simply just confederated some minor factions.

Anyway, since we’re gearing up for conquest, let’s talk about Agamemnon’s campaign progression and epic missions in Total War Saga: Troy.
