Sarranid Recruits are the first-tier troops of the Sarranid Sultanate. They are common folk which are recruited from the villages of the Sultanate, or they can be promoted from Desert Bandits.


Sarranid Recruits lack any decent skills or equipment, but with hardening these desert dwellers can advance through the ranks.

They are very cheap and therefore excellent for making meat shields. If your intentions do not involve letting them get slaughtered, there is little place for recruits on the battlefield. The best place for them to fight will be at a Training Field where they can advance to Sarranid Footman, resulting in somewhat better melee fighters.

Stats and equipmentEdit

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.
