Swadian infantry is the melee infantry class of the Kingdom of Swadia in Multiplayer games. Although they do have access to a few awlpikes and darts, for the most part, the Swadian infantry arsenal consists of swords, swords, and more swords. Skillful Swadian infantry with lightning-fast two-handed swords can truly dominate the battlefield -- so long as they avoid ranged attacks and the lances on enemy cavalry. Swadian infantrymen receive armor at a lower cost than other classes, but they cannot equip elite armor like the infantry of other factions.
The array of swords that Swadian infantry received can be bewildering. Bastard swords -- heavy and standard -- can be a temptation, but bear in mind that the stats are for two-handed use. One-handed, they are significantly slower and less damaging. Nonetheless, they can be useful, for example, on approaching an archer with shield up, while retaining the ability to put away the shield for serious two-handed combat. Working toward the arming sword is better if you want to fight sword-and-board continuously, while the great sword is devastating as a dedicated two-handed weapon. Darts aren't the mightiest of thrown weapons, but at least they're cheap. A long awlpike is generally advisable if expecting cavalry -- although some are confident that a great sword and some skillful dodging and jumping will allow them to prevail against mount assaults. Swadian infantry has a good set of armor, often at a discount. (For example, boots seem to generally be about 20% cheaper for Swadian infantry than for others, and Brigandine is 25% cheaper than it "should" be.
