Ashigaru Spearmen.png

Ashigaru Spearmen are the Japanese unique Heavy Infantry of the Ancient Age.png Ancient Age that replaces the standard Hoplites.

Overview[]

Compared to Hoplites, Ashigaru Spearmen have +5 hit points, +1 attack strength, +1 armor, +3 turn speed (meaning they can maneuver faster), and an attack speed of 30 frames, as well as lacking the 12% damage penalty against buildings that Hoplites have.
