Vaegir Guards are the top-tier infantry units in the Vaegir troop line, the other top tier units being Vaegir Marksmen and Vaegir Knights. They are obtained from upgrading Vaegir Infantry for 80 denars.


These units are slightly more mobile than their Swadian Sergeant or Rhodok Sergeant counterparts, but their general lack of shields leave them very vulnerable to archer fire. They are the least-shielded top-tier infantry in Calradia, worse than Sarranid Guards. Vaegir Guards can be seen to best Nord Huscarls in melee. This is likely due to the Guards favoring two-handed axes in battle, allowing them to destroy their opponents' shields and then strike enemies in the head for one-hit kills during the brief stuns caused by this type of weapon.

Guards fight well in defending castles because of their polearms, but otherwise will fall prey to enemy archers quite easily. Even in close combat, it is hard to beat another top-tier infantry with Vaegir Guards. Sometimes even Rhodok Sharpshooters will fight better in melee! Sarranid Guards are comparable to them, but Sarranids are more likely to have shields and sometimes throwing weapons (like jarids) that can be hurled before the clash.

If you use Vaegir Guards, it is important to suppress enemy archer fire quickly by any means, such as firing a volley of arrows or a cavalry charge. You can also use another shielded infantry as core infantry, and use Vaegir Guards as shock troopers. This can be done by setting the Guards as another group type, and keeping them behind the troops with shields until your infantry are about to charge to the enemy. This way, the Guards will almost never face the arrows.
