Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Imperial Archers are a heroic era archer ranged infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The Imperial Archers are recruited from the best marksmen the Prefecture Army can provide. In battle they serve as part of the Imperial general's honour guard, where their armour-piercing arrows will defend against armoured cavalry and infantry alike.

Acquisition[ | ]

Imperial Archers can be unlocked from the ranged infantry unit tree, where they cost 15000 honour to unlock after prerequisites. Alternatively they can be unlocked using 20x Imperial Archer Signaculum, although in practice signacula are relatively rare so it is much more feasible to unlock Imperial Archers via honour.
