Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Symmachean Stalwarts are a heroic era tower shield melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Stalwarts are the spear infantry of the Symmachean Brotherhood, drawn from the veteran ranks of Spear Sergeants. As men of common birth they have few opportunities for advancement, but the riches promised by king John of Empyros proved a powerful motivation. Stalwarts pride themselves on standing up to any amount of hardship, being even more dangerous on the offense than in their normal role as shieldwall/blocking troops.

Acquisition[ | ]

Symmachean Stalwarts can be unlocked via the Season V: Legacy of Fire seasonal challenges. As one of the season's heroic era units, Symmachean Stalwarts require the Zykalian Militia to be unlocked (i.e. stage 2 of the Zykalian Militia seasonal challenges completed) before progress can be made on their seasonal challenges.
