Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Halberdiers are a Silver-era polearm unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Halberds are long polearms incorporating elements of both the pike and the poleaxe. Accordingly this gives the halberdier a variety of options when fighting infantry or cavalry, and they are equally effective against both. Halberdiers are well-trained and disciplined, able to stand firm against an enemy charge or smash through the enemy lines at full speed.

Acquisition[ | ]

Halberdiers can be unlocked from the Melee Infantry unit tree, where they cost 7500 honour to unlock after prerequisites. Alternatively they can be obtained using 20x Halberdiers signacula (although in practice signacula are very uncommon).

Unit Traits[ | ]

▲ [Swamp] Increases damage dealt to cavalry by 26%, and reduces an attacked cavalry unit's movement speed by 45% for 2 seconds.
▲ [Shield Breakers] This unit is skilled at penetrating enemy armour and will deal significant damage to heavily armoured foes.

Formations[ | ]

Tips & Trivia[ | ]

  • Halberdiers are focused around their Stand Firm unit order, which is effective against both cavalry and infantry. They have relatively low defences, are vulnerable to control effects, and have poor performance against ranged units, but they make up for this by dealing an astounding amount of damage relative to other units of their era.
  • The Pike Assault unit order of Halberdiers is rather lackluster; as such it is better to spec into their bottom-line veterancy to improve Stand Firm.
  • In battle, it's recommended to use the dispersed formation for dealing with cavalry and the phalanx formation for dealing with infantry.
