Hi, I checked this unit guide, and I have one question about roman archers, in unit guide are two archers units for roman post marian, roman syrian archers, and roman cretan archers.
syrian archers is meant cohors I damascenorvm sagittariorvm? and cretan archers is meant cohortes thracum sagittariorvm?
I have a couple of questions regarding some units and abilities.
1. What does the "Hardy" ability in units do? Are they harder to kill? Resist bad weather better? Good morale?
2. In this list I see "Roman horse archer" and some Heavy Cavalry named "Ala I Gemina" recruitable. I have conquered most of western europe but have never seen them in my recruitment que.
Am I doing something wrong? I have a mixture of city types, can build a lot of named legions and local troops. When I am on the subject, what is the best unit the romans can produce that had effective against armor? Now I'm using Volcae Axman.
Thanks a bunch for taking time to read and hopefully answer!
I do not understand the codes under the heading Recruitment Place. For example, Post marian, Cohors Batavorum can be recruited in the Oppidum, Provincial a1 a5 a7. What do you mean by Provincial a1 a5 a7? I looked on the maps in the important data file, but that numbering system is clearly not what you are using.
Along that line, is there a single listing of the regions where post reform numbered legions and auxilia are raised?
I kind of preffered the EB tool... when you selected a unit and it showed the regions where you could recruit them... that and the buildings needed would help even better I think... a visual interface... a program... you know what I mean, but this is better than nothing right!?
Sorry everybody, i was fully tied up for the past months between my works and a speed run so did not check in the forum.
I've noticed such deviation too, which can't be explained from the EDU and EDB. My guess is you have taken the building over from some faction that can recruit Thraikan Elite Falxman. What the Merc building can do is already decided when it is built.Originally Posted by Kaiser

2. You have to come to the area where you can train those units, which are Area 11-12-14-15. Horse archers is a specialty of the east, they simply do not exist in western europe.
For sake of space, a1 simply means Area 1 in the recruitment mapOriginally Posted by Zom
Similarly a1.3 means Region 3 in Area 1
At first I would like to thank you for the very good job done.
I have read in this forum about the superiority of the named legions. Looking at the statistics on the Unit Guide I see that
The Polybian Republic Legion has statistics 12,10,11,37,21
While the post Marian
Cohors X Italia has statistics 10,12,8,35,21
And the Best post Marian Unit
Roman late praetorian 14,11,12,45,24
there must be something I miss here because I see no to little superiority of the post Marian units.
Please fill the gap
I thank you in advance
