Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Ironcap Bowriders are a chivalric era archer cavalry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Bowriders act as the border guards in peacetime, riding out in long patrols after reports of bandits and rebels. On the battlefield they act as skirmishers and ranged support to the infantry. Use Ironcap Bowriders to harass enemy units and pull them away from their friends by making feigned retreats. In this manner mounted archers supported by melee units can defeat much heavier units than their abilities might otherwise suggest.

Acquisition[ | ]

Ironcap Bowriders can be unlocked from the Cavalry unit tree, where their node costs 2000 honour to unlock after prerequisites. This cost can be partially or fully defrayed using up to 20x Ironcap Bowrider's Signaculum.
