Unit Information Game Strategies History
Elite Light Cavalry
The Elite Light Cavalry is the standard Light Cavalry of the Gunpowder Age Gunpowder Age, available to upgrade from the Light Cavalry as soon as the age is reached. Like all cavalry of the age, it is trained and upgraded at the Stable.

Overview Edit

When the Light Cavalry becomes Elite Light Cavalry, it gains +18 hit points, +1 attack strength, +1 armor and +1 line of sight.

The fastest unit of its age, Elite Light Cavalry excels when attacking Light Infantry, Ranged Cavalry, Artillery Weapons and Supply Wagons. However, Heavy Cavalry and Heavy Infantry, as well as building fire will bring them down as fast as they move, and are vulnerable to Foot Archer fire.

All in all, the Elite Light Cavalry, and Light Cavalry in general, is arguably better than Light Infantry in most roles, except for two: Light Infantry is much more effective against a large force of Foot Archers, and can garrison inside Towers if necessary, while cavalry in general cannot.
