Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Banner Guards are a heroic era buckler shield melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Banners form the focal point of armies arrayed for battle: by flying distinctive flags, banners and standards, the largely illiterate warriors assembled can maintain unit coherency with their commanders, and benefit from the morale boost. Banner Guards are commonly veteran soldiers picked for this task by their commander, skilled not only in a variety of weapons but capable of rallying weary allies to renew their efforts, and dedicated to guarding the army banner with their very lives.

Acquisition[ | ]

Banner Guards can be unlocked via the Season XI: Paragons seasonal challenges. As the season's heroic era unit, Banner Guards require the Alchemists to be unlocked (i.e. stage 2 of the Alchemists seasonal challenges completed) before progress can be made on their seasonal challenges.

Unit Traits[ | ]

Trait In-Game Description
▲ [Cooperation] A hero can temporarily gain new abilites and a 5,000-point maximum health increase by picking up the banner. Heroes cannot ride horses or jump while carrying the banner.
▲ [Mixed Weaponry] The unit is composed of a variety of soldiers. This includes the flag- bearer who has an extra 6,000 health and 100 points to all Defence values.
