Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Serfs are a Rustic era buckler shield melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Serfdom is the social status of the lowest members of a medieval society: Since they have no wealth other than their own labour, serfs are obliged to work on the lands of their lord, providing him with a share of their produce in return for military protection and a measure of justice. Serfs are among the most basic infantry units: their combat potential against anything other than other serfs is minimal, but their real strength lies in their ability to collect resources as part of an army on the march.

Acquisition[ | ]

Serfs can be obtained for free from the Melee Infantry Unit Tree.

Tips & Trivia[ | ]

  • As the traits suggest, Serfs deal very little damage and will lose to almost every other unit in the game. In battles, they function best as a filler unit to push siege towers and battering rams (although Martellatori are more useful for that purpose once obtained).
  • Serfs have the highest labour in the game when levelled. For resource collectors, it is suggested to recruit multiple units of serfs to maximize production.
