Vaegir Marksmen are the highest tier archers for the Kingdom of Vaegirs.


These units are generally considered to be the best bow-wielding archers in the game, and can unleash a hail of arrows that will destroy opposing infantry. However, these troops' damage per second and damage per arrow are lower than that of the crossbow-wielding Rhodok Sharpshooters.

Consequently, they are an inferior choice for attacking and defending castles when compared to the Sharpshooters, as they lack the staying power necessary to survive long sieges. This disadvantage is not present in field battles due to the battles' shorter duration. There, archers rarely have enough time to unload their entire quiver, making total possible damage output less important than rate of fire, accuracy, and mobility.

The Marksmen's high firing rate is very strong against infantry, especially when fighting against weakly-armored or unshielded troops. Their high firing rate will harass the enemy advance and can also make these troops a solid counter to enemy archers, which is vital as many other Vaegir troops forgo using a shield in favor of a larger weapon.

Vaegir Marksmen have clear tactical value, different than Rhodok Sharpshooters. If you can take them to the right place with the right protection, these troops will more than earn their pay. Combining the arms of Rhodok Sharpshooters and Vaegir Marksmen makes for an impressively powerful display of archery that can stop a charge in its tracks, and finish off the stunned infantry with crossbow bolts.

As with all archer types, they must be defended by a spear wall, protected by heavy infantry, or screened by allied cavalry to mitigate the threat of an enemy cavalry charge.
