I have resumed my old Seleucid campaign again. Now, Dacians built a shrine to Hebeleysis in Segestica.
My armies have already +3 weapons and +3 armor. Now I see a potential to get some morale bonuses (if I let the town grow and then give it back to Dacians, they will upgrade the temple for me).
Do you have any experience with these kinds of temples? Is it worth? Can you tell, which units are upgraded and which are not?

Morale bonuses aren't something you can see, unlike experience, which the higher levels of the Temple of Haphaestus offer (so does the pantheon for the Temple of Asklepios). Also, experience gives bonuses to attack and defense skill which tends to provide a bigger edge in battle than a morale bonus.

I agree with General Sajaru, but I also do things a bit differently. I usually have a temple in a nearby city for the armor and attack bonuses, and then one with the morale bonuses (if I can get one). Then I retrain one unit in the one town, then march its ass over to the other.

Best of both worlds.

IN my experiences, one can never have too many bonuses.

Thank you very much. I will try it out then.
I will destroy old temple of Abnoba in Corinth and give it to Dacians, so that they build tavern and temple.
