Vaegir Recruits are the first-tier units of the Kingdom of Vaegirs.


Though called "Recruits", they are basically bandit-like peasants with better arms but worse skills. It's best to beat these soldiers to a pulp repeatedly at a Training Field until they level up before taking them out to real combat, as they will probably be easily killed by anything that isn't a Looter.

Because there are so many Vaegir villages, a commander can quickly raise a large army of these soldiers. One can spend several in-game days visiting all the villages in the north, and in a few days' time any companions who have their training skill upgraded will have made your Recruits into a force that won't fold to the first Sea Raiders you meet. However, one has to remember that any army made up exclusively of Vaegirs will be inferior to any similarly sized, composed, and upgraded enemy force because they simply don't have enough armor to survive.
