|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
The Elite Royal Hwarang are the Korean Foot Archers of the Gunpowder Age. Like Archers, Elite Hwarang are effective against Heavy Infantry, but weak against Light Infantry and Heavy Cavalry. They also make excellent garrisons, increasing a building's garrison power more than other unit types.
They are the strongest Foot Archers in the game, their higher armor and stats enabling them to nullify even the bonus damage of Apedemak Archers.
Elite Royal Hwarang are trained and upgraded at the Barracks.
Production cost for this unit increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. However, the maximum cost for Elite Royal Hwarang is capped at 90 Timber / 112 Wealth. Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
