The Sarranid footman is the melee infantry class of the Sarranid Sultanate in Multiplayer games. Although it lacks long, powerful polearms like the hafted blade, great long bardiche, glaive, or great long axe, it nonetheless has a versatile set of weapons that can enable it to face any foe competently.
The Sarranid footman has an arsenal that, while hardly deficient at higher levels, performs best at low-to-mid levels of wealth. The simple bamboo spear is one of the finest weapons in the game for its cost, providing great defense against cavalry and, when wielded two-handed, often being adequate to thwart foes with big polearms like bardiches. Sarranid leather armor is a wonderful deal in terms of protection, weight, and cost. Sarranid swords are not exceptional, but they can get the job done -- their one-handed axes can be devastating.
