Sarranid Veteran Footmen are melee specialists for the Sarranid Sultanate and can be found in the armies of most Sarranid lords. They upgrade into either Sarranid Infantry or Sarranid Horsemen.


Sarranid Veteran Footmen always have Sarranid Leather Armor that gives them 32 body defense. There is a chance that a Sarranid Veteran Footman will carry throwing weapons, making them more threatening than most third-tier melee troops of other factions. Owing to their lack of appreciable Power Strike, one will often find that their Footmen do not stack up well against their peers in other factions once their initial volley of Jarids has been spent.

When fighting against these troops, it's best to charge them with cavalry. Footmen have weak shields, so troops with axes can be effective, such as those from the Kingdom of Nords. Like most Sarranids, if you choose to use them, they generally don't have great armor. But in swarms, they become less vulnerable to charges, and flanking the enemy with the famous Sarranid cavalry makes the charges less destructive.
