Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Modao Battalion are a golden era polearm melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The Modao Battalions are one of the most distinguished military formations in Longting. They form the core of the Hao Jing Imperial Guard. Their equipment is top-notch and their training rigorous, as they serve the important task of guarding the city. The army they formerly belonged to was founded by the second Qian Emperor, which followed the emperor on expeditions sometimes lasting decades, for the duration of which it went undefeated.
Nowadays, the power of these forces is in decline, though still revered. The soldiers selected for the Modao Battalion are all skilled warriors, with strong physiques and a deep reserve of loyalty and dedication to their duty. They wield the great bladed 'modao' with great skill, reputedly able to cut a cavalryman and his horse in two with a single strike.
