Nobles are from Veteran Spearmen. The Spearmen are hard to train and need experience to become Nobles. Nobles have mail, a long spear, a good shield, and leather gloves.
Nobles can do a good amount of damage and are very valuable to their leaders. They are very useful in the shield wall because of their high health and big shields. Commanders of these nobles should support them with lesser troops like Young Warriors and Freeholders as nobles are very weak fighting against large groups of enemies.
