Demesne Arbalists are a silver era crossbowman ranged infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The crossbow is a popular weapon among mercenaries: Easy to learn, lethal, and a low logistical footprint. An innovation to improve the rate of fire is the addition of a stirrup to the crossbow, and a belt hook worn by the user. To reload the crossbow, the soldier rests the stirrup on the ground, places his foot in it, and attaches his belt hook to the bowstring. By standing up straight, he uses his leg muscles rather than his arms to pull back the string, making it a much less tiring weapon to use.

Acquisition[ | ]

Demesne Arbalists can be obtained from the ranged infantry unit tree, where they cost 7500 honour to unlock after prerequisites. Alternatively Demesne Arbalists can be unlocked using 20x Demesne Arbalist Signaculum, although in practice the relative rarity of signacula makes this option very uncommon.
