Mercenary Swordsmen are hired infantry that can be recruited from taverns or gained by upgrading other units.

TacticsEdit

Mercenary Swordsmen are strong and easy to pay. They function as the general heavy infantry and are great in sieges for their strong proficiencies and equipment. However, they are slow and wield poor shields, so they are not great for fighting the Khergits.

As heavy infantry, Mercenary Swordsmen should be in the front lines protecting faster light infantry and providing cover against arrows. Their shields are generally larger than those of Hired Blades, but they lack in armor. They always use swords with shields which means they have a lower average attack, but the protection of their larger shields means that in the long run Mercenary Swordsmen will last longer and for more battles.

StatsEdit

Note: Troops have a set of default stats; at the beginning of a new game, these stats are randomly adjusted for each type of troop. The following is the default set for this troop as seen within the game code and may not reflect the specific stats you will see during actual gameplay. For more information, see Troop stats.
