Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Woodcutters are a rustic era buckler shield unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

A part of a peasant's duties to their overlord includes at times the obligation to serve in his armies when called upon. Many medieval societies, continually aware of the importance of the harvest, set by custom time limits on how long a man could be conscripted for. Woodcutters are armed with the tools of their trade, and represent the first steps towards forming bands of peasants trained to work together as coherent units.

Acquisition[ | ]

Woodcutters can be obtained for free from the Melee Infantry unit tree.

Tips & Trivia[ | ]

  • Woodcutters find best use in pushing siege engines, although they are overshadowed in this role by marginally cheaper units (in terms of leadership) and Martellatori.
  • Woodcutters are rendered obsolete by Serfs for resource gathering. Combined with their low combat ability, Woodcutters are functionally useless and resources are best spent on other units.
