Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Yanyuedao Cavalry are a golden era special cavalry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The Yanyuedao Cavalry eschew armour in favour of speed, and are known as some of the most skilled riders in the world. In combat, they use their horse's speed to build up momentum for their slashing attacks. Legends abound of a battle in which eight hundred of these soldiers annihilated a massive army numbering in the thousands.

A soldier once said of them: "The valley breeze, gentle though it may be, ensconces the towering peaks. There is no grass, and there is no tree that does not fail to wilt under its unassuming power. Our horses are unmatched in battle, and overwhelm everything in their way."

Acquisition[ | ]

Yanyuedao Cavalry can be unlocked via the Season XV: Eternal seasonal challenges. As the season's golden era unit, Yanyuedao Cavalry require the Crescent Monks to be unlocked (i.e. 3rd stage of the Crescent Monks seasonal challenges completed) before progress can be made on their seasonal challenges.

Dread Unleashed

The unit's built up momentum is unleashed, dealing slashing damage over a large area. The amount of armour penetration and damage depend on how much momentum was built up while Mounting Dread was active. Upon using this skill, all of the unit's defences will fall by 150 points.
