    Icon1 shogun 2 Multiplayer retainer and armour set list

    Hi guys.

    Rather than charge head first into the game, thought I'd write all the retainer info down so those not able to play shogun can think on their selections later on. These are copied off the game's mouse over text for each one. Please forgive spelling mistakes and such.

    List will be alphabetical except for the starting retainers and the clan specialization retainer. As we [TWC] are sword specialized, I can't say what the other three are, prob very similar to the sword bonus but for other units, but will leave a blank space for them for now.

    Limited edition - I think it's the Ill Omen retainer that would normally come with an armour set unlock.

    Clan specialism - Sword training network: Reduce sword casualties. Increased clan influence gain
    Clan specialism - Reduce spear casualties. Increased clan influence gain (Credit to daniu for this)
    Clan specialism - Reduce archer casualties. Increased clan influence gain (Credit to daniu for this)
    Clan specialism - Reduce cavalry casualties. Increased clan influence gain (Credit to daniu for this)

    Name of retainer: actual bonus (how to unlock) map meaning found on map. arm meaning it needs the following armour set. Some are linked to building chains found on the map, some to achievements and some are post battle random drops.

    Reserved 2.

    Will but odds and ends in here and let you know how up to date the info is.
    Just hastily copied into in a scribble then typed it up. Might be a few errors where I ran out of room and squeezed all info into my margins. Will go over and add bold and colour tags to help make list easier to read. Will fix spelling mistakes and correct the unknown information. Please let me know if you want to add or spot an error

    Will work on an FAQ here too, updated as i learn/can be bothered. Just to help us nubs out

    How many retainers may I take into battle?
    There are five slots, but they unlock at different levels. You start with one slot at level 0 but unlock extra slots at levels 1, 4, 7 and 10.

    What are best/worst retainers?
    What retainers compliment XYZ army composition?
    What retainers compliment XYZ avatar build?
    What is better, retainers that buff my army or debuff their army?
    Do retainer similar bonuses stack? (eg -5% recruitment cost and -10% ashi recruitment cost)
    Can I counter enemy retainers?
    What happens if I have a retainer that cancels the enemy retainer that cancels one of my retainers? (Example. Sage advisor/Metsuke > Shinobi/Geisha Poisoner > Wizened monk

    Excuse my shorthand, it means "piece is dropped". After a battle for (as it says on the info on the armour set screen) 'random post battle drop' - I think you need a victory to get the gear, I'm sure later on the mathematicians can crack the chance/conditions of a certain drop.

    The other clan specialization retainers have the same effect as the sword one, reduced casualties for the appropriate unit type and increased clan influence gain.
    I'm pretty sure the Ox Cart is not in the Teppo chain, don't you get it along with the first siege weapon?

    when it says "reduced casualties" that means post battle you will recover more men from the fight right?

    I'm not sure - it's not very clear. I don't think it keeps your units on the field alive any longer - so yes, probably reduces casualties post battle (important for maintaining healthy vet levels) - If someone can confirm this, though would be great. Though personally this retainer is locked into my first slot, FOR THE CLAN!!
