Hwarang Screen

Hwarang are the Korean unique Foot Archers of the Ancient Age Ancient Age. Like all infantry, Hwarang are trained and upgraded at the Barracks, replacing the standard Bowmen. Besides the researching of Military Military 1 (The Art of War) in order to build a Barracks, there is no requirement for recruiting Hwarang.

Overview Edit

Compared with Bowmen, Hwarang have +7 hit points, +1 armor and +1 attack strength, making them overall better suited for all roles.

Being the first Foot Archers avaliable for the Koreans, Hwarang are most adequate when fending off an Ancient Age rush, for they have the longest range, are strong against Heavy Infantry, and make excellent garrisons, as Foot Archers in general increase a building's garrison power more than other unit types. However, defending against a raid is another matter, for these are usually carried out by Light Infantry, which will make short work of them.

Unit Costs Edit

Unit production cost increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is of 1 Timber Timber and 1 Wealth Wealth for the second unit created, increasing further with every new unit until the cost cap is reached, which for military units is +125% of their original base value; in the case of Hwarang that is 90 Timber Timber, 112 Wealth Wealth. It's important to note, however, that these prices are the default standard, and actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies/ages, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
