Best troop
17:22:49 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Killer:

Right, just wondering what you think is the best over-all troops of any race. I mean the over-allness of how good the troop is, not how good it's defence or offence or specialties. Every thing into account, and here is the guide so you know all their defences:
Swordsmen 200 2 & 3 Archers 520 4 & 5 Knights 1500 11 & 11 Magicians 100 0 & 0 Catapults 5000 40 & 20

Ghosts 100 2 & 2 Archers 650 2 & 10 Riders 1100 6 & 10 Spellweavers 100 0 & 0 Archmages 2600 * & *

Gaia 90 1 & 1 Hammerthrowers 280 3 & 3 Ogres 1000 8 & 6 Shamans 90 0 & 0 Nazguls 17000 150 & 150

Swordsmen 190 2 & 2 Hammerthrowers 720 5 & 6 Axemen 1200 8 & 6 Runemasters 100 0 & 0 Cavemasters 900 3 & 3

Hobgoblins 160 3 & 3 Rockthrowers 450 5 & 5 Warlords 1100 10 & 10 Mages 35 1 & 0 Berserkers 3500 35 & 35

Farmers 20 0 & 1 Slingers 150 2 & 2 Pony riders 500 6 & 4 Illusionists 100 0 & 0 Adventurers 1000 8 & 8

* The power of an archmage is 3 * magic science level.
The Strength of the units are shown as Offence & Defence.

Ok, here is what I know about the troops apart from their offence and defence:

Cavemasters help mining, Adventurers can find treasure, Gaia aren't trained from peasents, so they don't cost peasants(I'm not exactly sure what they are trained from) and Gaia also inflict more injuries on the enemy. Add any other stuff you know about troops. And as for the MU's, well... they do magic stuff, so they're not counted, but count them if you want. Give what troop you think is best, and say why. Take the following factors into account: Offence and defence, how good the magic(if it's an MU), specialities, how much you need to have a good offensive or defensive army, and if there is many, that they'll cost more in an army.

17:24:09 Jul 2nd 07 - Sir IM Shyers Who The Hell Are You:

I'd say the goblin rider, cause he's fast and you get two for the price of one

17:54:09 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Sloth:

I think its the Swordmaster. Clearly the best deal out there.

18:32:57 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Nieander:

Nazzies pwn!

18:33:43 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Game And Watch:

Some would say Nazguls, others Berserkers, others Archmages, others Axemen, it really depends on your situation and your strategy...

there are many kds who welcome less experienced players and will teach them most anything they want to know, i would suggest finding one and making friends with some more experienced players, they can help a lot more then anyone on the message board will have the kindness too ;)

18:35:38 Jul 2nd 07 - Dark Lord Finwe:

Warlords ftw

19:28:10 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Justanius Fontaini:

*beep* off its nazzies u dumb *beep*s hu ever u r

19:37:32 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Architect:

Nazzies obviously, its no contest.  They are fast, and freakishly strong.  Last era when I was holding out against Phi in my last city down south, I had something like 11K Nazguls with me and was able to use BT's to take out 3 of their big merges.  There is something special about taking out 500K+ troops with only 11K of my own.  No other unit can compete as far as strength and speed when in large groups.

19:55:34 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Iwasfrozen IV:

i think cavemasters are the best.

21:12:17 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Ithakan:


23:54:16 Jul 2nd 07 - Mr. Killer:

Game and Watch, I amn't a new player, though I'm not a veteran either... only 4 eras. I was just wondering what people thought was the best troop. Though only one gave any reason whatsoever as to why they thought it was the best troop. I was also wondering how many would answer Nazgul. They're not really that good, considering costs, only in an army going about the place are they strong and fast. For an orc, gaia are better defence, double them for the cost, just as long as you have lots of houses to keep them in. They also don't cost peasants which is pretty handy., but Nazguls are good troops.

00:35:24 Jul 3rd 07 - Sir IM Shyers Who The Hell Are You:

well, if you want to crunch, numbers, AMs are your best deal at lvl 10 magic. even Naz are no contest to that, though, pound for pound Naz do rule in the mathematics of it before lvl 10 magic AMs. but, once you put people in control of them, any army can rule or suck.

oh, and killer, yeah 4 eras still makes you a nub.

08:38:47 Jul 3rd 07 - Mr. Spoon:

Ogres, they've got a neat price, aren't as expensive as Nazguls, are slow like the other armies later in the era.
They need less magic defense, because they're ogres, and they have a special ability.
And since it's an orc, each military science makes the unit 1.15 stronger.

Also, if you explore at the start, till you have a 100k income, you'd be able to train around 95 each tick. Which is 9500 in 100 ticks.
That'd beat any nazgul army.

23:53:05 Jul 3rd 07 - Sir Bruto Cikayson:

I don't think many people are going to say axemen are the best...

01:16:57 Jul 4th 07 - Sir Pelagius Septim II: oppinion is that Peasants are the best troops...(lol)

05:43:49 Jul 4th 07 - Sir IM Shyers Who The Hell Are You:

ogres have a special ability? huh? what extra ugliness?

03:37:37 Jul 5th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:

war lords although i am dwarf 

dwarf got this cave master which makes the prices lower its good ability when you are in the middle of the era . cuz most people as happened me in crissxcross era the knight reached nearly 6500 - 7000 gold . in basic its 1500 so you find cave masters have this ability which makes the axe men and hammer thrower an advantige in the era after . 

i just hate it axe men are 1200 and warlords are 1100 and war lords are more power than the axe in 2 more attack and in 4 more defence.

i only say if you want money and power  pick dwarf .

if you want total power pick trolls or orc

if you want total magic pick elves

if you want an even in all of them pick human

if you want people laugh on you pick halfings

01:57:15 Jul 6th 07 - Sir Bruto Cikayson:

Haflfings got those sneaky scouts, though.  A necessity for any serious KD.

02:49:25 Aug 1st 07 - Mr. Brashen:


18:26:35 Aug 1st 07 - Mr. Aben II:


19:21:47 Aug 1st 07 - Mr. Mijamoto Mushashi:

so far, nazgull, the power, speed, low upkeep, less trouble with walls ...

19:24:42 Aug 1st 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

Peasants do a lot of damage! (lol)

21:45:57 Aug 1st 07 - Mr. Snacks:

go back to gaia

21:57:46 Aug 1st 07 - Mr. Ithakan:

I like my archmages.....

04:05:41 Aug 2nd 07 - Lord Senturu:

Knights are the best booyaa!!!!!!!!!!

10:30:24 Aug 2nd 07 - Mr. Dark Orion:

Troll mages are the sh1t.... they have both attack power and magic so the combination of sword and their magic stick is unbeatable..

1vs1 they can kill even the nazguls with their magic spells but when combined with narrowminded troops like warlords or sekers they suck:P

23:33:14 Aug 3rd 07 - Mr. Alexander The Great:

i find troll troops quite interseting ,

war lords are more power than knights , dah do one attack and one defence cost 400 gold more ,

best mages ,

best lvl one troops

best lvl two troops

the berseker have power and nice cost , can beat all lvl 5 troops for all anther races except orcs ,

but orcs don't have the advantge of not pay in allied city ,

narrow minded , well they don't tell you that bers kill all of your army , and i think cuz their size , the admin must say , it happened in accedent , while they are fighting ,

02:21:37 Aug 4th 07 - Mr. Strike Zakira:

troll are nice but there science too much xD

03:17:32 Aug 4th 07 - Mr. Alexander The Great:

not always , and that will be at least one disadvantge , cuz

i mean all races have more disadvantges ,

i also hate the stupid scince , but trolls pessiz are more big than halfing so they work more and carry more , i think that solve the problem :D

12:28:10 Aug 4th 07 - Mr. Breadlord:

orion they have double sciense costs now ;D

12:30:37 Aug 4th 07 - Mr. Breadlord:

nazzy's suck
(shut up nazzy lovers do you want zeta to change it or non orcs to keep complaining till he does XD)

11:13:52 Aug 5th 07 - Mr. Justanius Fontainius:

17:41:38 Aug 8th 07 - Mr. Dark Orion:
