A few days ago I’ve started a series of article about ultimate soldier, you can read the previous article about the infantry unit (part 1 and part 2) or if you are looking the archers unit click here.
Today I’m taking on the cavalry. I unfortunately didn’t played that much with the cavalry, most of my heroes ended up being archer or infantry heroes.
So here the table of the cavalry
Cavalry Ultimate soldier 1 :
|728||159||75||18||1680||56||Higher Unit Attack and less damage received while facing Archers.|
|745||156||67||27||1650||55||Increased Unit Attack against Infantry.|
|804||167||45||24||2220||74||Higher Unit Defense against Cavalry attacks.|
|826||157||52||15||1650||55||Higher damage dealt to Infantry; less damage suffered from Archer attacks.|
|660||154||98||24||1950||65||Higher Unit Attack and Defense while facing Cavalry.|
Resource Cost :
Flying Monkey Brigade
Lionheart Cavaliers have the best attack of the tier-4 cavalry and they even have a little extra against infantry. However they lack defence (worst of the t4 cavalry and even worst that the T2 cavalry, which is really bad) if there lack of defence didn’t scare you off, it’s food per round consumption might make you think twice about grabbing them. At 74 they are the worst of the game even U2 use less food per round that the lionheart.
Runner up for best attack : White stallions
Best Tank (defence)
The Iron-clad have the best defense of all cavalry, so they are a perfect choice to have fast and tanky reinforcement. They however have a lower hp than other cavalry so I don’t know how much it’s make a difference in a fight though.
Runner up for best defense: White stallions
Lionheart Cavaliers / Flying Monkey Brigade
I’ve already explain that Lionheart Cavaliers have a terrible defense but the Flying Monkey Brigade is not far behind. At 52 it’s the second lowest defense rating of all cavalry.
Lionheart Cavaliers / Iron-clad Cavalry
I like I said before Lionheart Cavaliers have the highest food consumption in the game making them the greediest unit. Iron-clad eat a lot of your food too with a consumption of 65.
Best runner up:
Being no 2 in attack and defense, having a lower consumption and a skill that increases damage and reduce is damage receive vs archer, make the white stallion one of the favorite cavalry among CoK player that went with cavalry. Its only downside is that its cost structure is similar to most U2, you might have to use gold and coupon to change your iron to stone and wood.
Left overs ?
Black Raiders are in a weird category, they have only 2 points of attack more than the Iron-clad (the last in the U1 cavalry group), they are in the middle in term of defense, they cost mostly food and their skill is against infantry which cavalry unit are already good against.
From what I see mostly in battle and in the forum it seem that the White Stallions and the Iron-clad Cavalry are CoK fan favorite.
There a poll you can check out and vote on the forum about the cavalry u1.
