BackArrowGreen Back to Pantheons

Dance of the Aurora is a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It increases the Civ6Faith Faith output of Holy Site districts by 1 for each adjacent Tundra tile.

The Kongolese cannot make use of this pantheon under Mvemba a Nzinga, since his leader ability prevents them from building Holy Sites.

Strategy Edit

Like all pantheons that rely on specific terrain types, Dance of the Aurora attempts to boost the desirability of an otherwise unappealing terrain. It requires an appropriate start and the player having more interest in Civ6Faith Faith than whatever other bonuses may be obtained (e.g. extra Civ6Food Food from Deer Camps through Goddess of the Hunt).

If a civilization can make any use of extra Civ6Faith Faith, however, a pantheon that specializes in generating absurd amounts of Civ6Faith Faith is certainly a good choice. Combining this pantheon's benefits with those of Peter in particular will result in a LOT of Civ6Faith Faith, due to Russia's civilization ability of obtaining extra Civ6Faith Faith and Civ6Production Production. This Civ6Faith Faith can then be invested in religious wars or recruitment of GreatPerson6 Great People. Wilfrid Laurier (another leader with a Tundra start bias) can also potentially make good use of it, although Civ6Faith Faith is not a particularly strong suit of his.

Another side-effect of the pantheon to keep in mind is that almost all your Holy Sites will trigger a "Splendid Holy Site Completed" Historic Moment upon completion.
