Empire Crossbowman (profile)

Empire Crossbowman (v3.7)

The standard ranged unit of the Empire’s army, these troops are reliable and solid battlefield additions that make up most of the archer line. Now using a Heavy Crossbow and steel bolt combination these troops can deal out heavy damage having become more proficient with the use of their crossbow. They now use the Cross Hilt Noble Sword Black Iron Spears for melee combat with more skill, fending off most mid-level enemies although it is advisable to keep them out of close combat altogether. Their armor consists of Empire breastplates and heavy board shields for adequate protection. Note that they also have guaranteed gloves and helmets in comparison to their predecessor. In battle they need to be supported by infantry and anti-cavalry units. They come from Empire Levy Skirmisher and over time they will be available for further upgrade into the Empire Armored Crossbowman.

Trivia: Edit

With high training skills from you and your companions these troops can be trained from recruits in a matter of days, however you'll need to have your companions and main character be of at least level 31+ as Empire Crossbowman is a 30 level unit. They're much more better protected and powerful( damage wise) than same tier archers from other major factions.
