Priest Teaming

by apocalypse77

This is just about a strategy for AOE and RoR that works very well on the computer. Obviously this works best with a priest civ; Egyptian and Choson are probably the best. This puts priests in teams of usually two. Two is the most efficient use of gold as well as the priests. This works in Bronze, but it is best in Iron, because of the number of upgrades that you can get for your priests.
Well, it’s very simple. On all units and towers, if two priests are converting it at the same time, then it will continuously alternate between attacking the two. However, the computer will alternate so rapidly that it will not be able to attack either priest, so both will remain intact as you should easily convert a unit. 
Also, you can do this with towers. Attack a tower with a few archers, drawing its fire long enough for you to get your priests into position. It’s a lot of fun to see your opponents towers suddenly turn on them! 
Assign numbers to Priest teams as well. This makes it much easier to select groups. The one disadvantage to this is that if you keep all your priests in a large group, and the priests are on opposite sides of the group, one priest may begin converting and come under fire. 
There is a strategy of having one priest converting a tower and having the other one heal him. In this case, this is probably more useful than the teaming strategy. When two priests convert something, both their faith meters deplete. The main advantage this strategy has over having one priest convert and one priest heal is that it can take out any siege weapon without damage, and that it is less to do, especially in a game that requires fast reactions.
