Melitine Empire's elite mounted archers, they use high speed and great power, to make quick work of even top tier troops. Using their speedy mounts, and their quick bows, they make for a great supplementary force, easily picking off those wounded by their Lancer and Griwbanar brothers.
They are equipped with the Melitine Horseman Bow with Melitine Horseman Arrows and the Melitine Sabre with a Melitine Tear Shield. They don the medium Melitine Lancer Lamellar Armor with Melitine Helmet Dark Leather Greaves and Leather Gloves while riding the lightly armored Melitine Hunter.
As with most horse archers, this unit is best kept away from the melee, and used for flanking and kiting, as their poor armor and mediocre sword make them highly vulnerable in close-range.
They can be encountered in either Melitine Scouting Forces (20-40), in the Sarno Expedition (10-20) but not in Sebastokrator Kaspax's army (40-80). They can only be hired from prisoner stacks, upgrading from the previous troop, the Melitine mercenaries heartbeat quest or indirectly via hiring the Sarno Expedition.
Note: Since 3.9.0, this troop will no longer upgrade to Melitine Griwbanar.
