Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Men-at-Arms are a heroic era buckler shield melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Knights fighting on foot as heavy infantry are usually referred to as "men-at-arms". They have superior training and kit compared to the bands of squires who usually accompany them, though they frequently take on similar roles in a battle. Men-at-Arms excel as assault troops in a siege, and are equally capable in defence. Men-at- Arms make an excellent honour guard for any general who prefers to fight on foot, and are trained to defend their commander to the death.

Acquisition[ | ]

Men-at-Arms can be unlocked from the Heraldic Units unit tree, where their node costs 15000 honour to unlock after prerequisites. Alternatively they can be unlocked using 20x Men-at-Arms Signaculum, but the relative rarity of signacula makes this option much less available.
