Clash of Kingdoms – Ultimate Infantry soldier spotlight. (Part 1)Posted by Jack
Today I’m taking on the infantry, note that this article is mostly my personal opinion and some input from the members on the forum.
For my first tear down, I’ll focus only on stats, next part I’ll focus on cost.
List of all U1 (with T3 and U2)
Best Damage output:
The Hammerfist are the hardest U1 infantry hitter. It has the highest attack and the skill that gives extra damage against all units (Higher damage dealt to all troop types). Next unit would probably go to the yellow turban since it has the second best attack and have a skill that increases damage.
Chainmail Guard (highest hp and def)
A tank unit is determine by 2 thing its amount of hp and its def (which reduce de damage receive) since the chainmail guard have the highest in both attribute it win without have any other contender. The next best in line is the yellow turban (again) with the second highest def but its skill that increases damage taken might be misleading, The Halberdian seem to be a good choice too.
Chargers / The Hammerfists
While they have high attack and offensive skill, they have about the same hp of a Royal Guard (T3 infantry) and have less defence. I don’t know if the Hammerfists skill “less damage suffered when attacked. “ really have an impact to help their survival but even if you exclude the cost Royal guards are probably better to tank than those 2.
With the 71 of consumption they consume more food than almost all other Ultimate soldier (only the Lionheart Cavaliers consume more) and even more the Goliath (the U2). While the chainmail guard cost less food that other U1 it makes it up with its high consumption. If you’re going Chainmail guard keep that in mind so you have alot of food for them.
The WTF unit
Decent attack but very weak in defense (second lowest) but its skill make me wonder : “Less damage dealt in exchange for much less damage received. “ So it drop from being a good hitter too being an average hitter and average defender (still probably less than the rattan infantry and halberdian). Not a very good trade off honestly. (honestly we have to look at it’s cost to make sense with that unit)
Broadsword Sentinels/Rattan Infantry
I’ve usually go for the Rattan infantry but not only for the reason here mostly because of their cost (see next post). They have a decent attack/def ratio and its skill usually what predominant in most of the server I’ve played (a high inf/archer army with low cavalry count)
I actually never tried the broadsword sentinels seem cheaper tank than the chainmail guard (and better hitter) when defending cities. Might worth a try on my next server.
So what your favorite infantry unit ?
Next post I’ll compare them cost wise and give you some precious link.
