|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Slingers are the standard Light Infantry of the Ancient Age. Like all infantry, Slingers are trained and upgraded at the Barracks. Besides the researching of Military 1 (The Art of War) in order to build a Barracks, there is no requirement for recruiting Slingers.
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 Food and 1 Timber for the second unit created, and grows exponentially from then on. Upgrading this unit costs double the base cost of the unit it will upgrade to; this means that the upgrade to Javelineers has a cost of 80 Food, 80 Timber. 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.
