Equites is cavalry unit trainadable from Stables. Equites is lightly armoured unit thats supposed to sweep every non spear infantry
In game description Edit
Highly mobilized horseman transferable to the proximal division I, II or III In the front to launch close combat. Especially lethal to Sagittarii and Principes with 120% damage boost. Cannot attack wall.
Spear-armed cavalry who have a screening role in a Roman army. Disciplined and fierced, they're recruited from the strongest tribes along the Roman borders, where those of non-Italian descents congregate. They can charge enemies to win. Roman cavalry only came into existence after the army reforms of Gaius Marius as a replacement force for the equites. The property qualifications for fighting as cavalry in the army were abandoned.
Ambush Assault: With Equitation Lv 7, Equites get Ambush Assault, which power becomes effectual instantly. It adds collateral damage to the rear division with magnitude that's half of of what is received by the division in front. This only occurs when Equites attack a forefront division (not diagonal). However a rear division suffers no collateral damage from Ambush Assault if Hastati is the forefront division. Flank assault doesn't invoke Ambush Assault.
Annihilation Sweep: Annihilation Sweep comes in handy at the end of a forefront attack. After destroying the forefront enemy division, without having to wait for another round, Annihilation Sweep enables Equites to attack the remaining divisions of the enemy hero. The all out attack towards the rest of the divisions is done without deduction in damage to the individual division.
Flank Expediance: When the front line enemy division standing in front of the Equites is empty or fallen, Equites' Flank Assail boosts the damage by 50% with Flank Expedience.
Advice on use Edit
Equites is best unit to take enemy infantry down in 1 turn and they're also fastest units in game (except Spectaculore). Unfortunatelly, Equites cant attack against wall and their use is limited against Hastatus which have a 180% damage boost agaist them.
