A message from the marathoners!
New Champion Units Available!
I am aware of the difficulties you are facing – Xerxes’ forces grow stronger by the day. We must accept any assistance available if we wish to be victorious! I had my scribe send this letter with great urgency, to make you aware that assistance is now available to aid your army in battle. Hire Champion Units at the Market and help turn the tide of battle in your favor!
Any Champion Unit, deployed alongside a full group of Supporting Units of the same class, will inflict significant damage against enemy forces.
There are two Champion Units available at the Market:
- Spartan Sminias: With a powerful Spartan Sminias leading the way, your Offensive Light Infantry Units will be fearless and much more effective in battles. Each additional Light Infantry Unit that fights alongside a Spartan Sminias will provide a bonus to their Offensive statistics.
- Standard-Bearer: Standard-Bearers inspire your Defensive Units and ensure they keep fighting until they can no longer stand. Each Defensive Light Infantry Unit that fights under their banner will provide a powerful bonus to their Defensive Statistics.
- Lochagos – Each additional Offensive Heavy Infantry Unit that goes under the guidance of Spartan Lochagos will provide a bonus to their Offensive statistics.
- Hypaspists lead the line and increase the defensive capability. Each additional Defensive Heavy Infantry Unit that goes under the guidance of Hypaspists will provide a bonus to their Defensive statistics.
- Amazonian Warrior: Under the guidance of experienced Amazonian Warriors, Scouts are dramatically more effective in accomplishing successful spying missions. Each additional Scout Unit that goes under the guidance of Amazonian Warriors will receive a bonus to their Defensive Espionage capabilities.
You may train Champion Units at the Market and help turn the tide of battle in your favor!
Leonidas, Basileus of Sparta
