Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Prefecture Guards are a silver era buckler shield unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The Prefecture Army is the next tier above the Ironcaps. Prefecture Army troops are rigorously trained swordsmen and are particularly skilled at charging to break enemy ranks. Their rattan shields and half-plate armour can protect them against arrows and even bullets at a long enough range. As the soldiers are grouped according to their village, they have a strong sense of unity, and this makes them all the more effective in combat.

Acquisition[ | ]

Prefecture Guards can be unlocked from the Ranged Infantry unit tree, where their node costs 2000 honour to unlock after prerequisites. Alternatively they can be unlocked using 20x Prefecture Guards Signaculum, although the relative rarity of signacula makes this option much less available.
