Best Troops (How to Get a Strong Army)

Choose Best Faction

The first thing you should do is decide what faction is good for you. For example in Khuzait its really easy to get a lot of Cavelry, though they are not the strongest.

Then you should go from village to village that belong to that faction and recruit their troops.

(I personally went for valandian army with a little of imperial soliders.)

Please take note that you should only get 2 factions in your army, or it would get complicated while leveling them up and creating strategies in battles.

When you got alot of recruits you can now start leveling them up( killing looters,bandits, etc…)

Upgrading Troops

What should the army compose of

In my personal opinion I like my army to be made like this:

  • 40% bowmen\crossbowmen
  • 40% Shielded infantry
  • 20% Cavelry (15% melee cavelry, 5%ranged)

You should base your troops on what kind of strategy you like.

I based it on shield wall strategy where i put infantry in front in Shield Wall behind them are archers in loose formation

Cavelry are sent when enemy is interacting with infantry to break the enemy formation.

And I rain arrows while breaking their formation and guarding the archers that are behind.

What to do with Troops?

If you got troops by killing bandits, raiding castles etc..

And you don’t want your army to be a mix of too many factions you can donate your troops for influence!

Go to any friendly castle and donate the troops or even farmers to that castle and it will get you tons of influence and that way you can keep your army organized.
