Elite Royal Hwarang.png

Elite Royal Hwarang are the Korean unique Foot Archer of the Gunpowder Age.png Gunpowder Age, available to upgrade from Royal Hwarang (unlike most nations which retains the Crossbowmen/Heavy Archers until they are succeeded by Musketeers in the Enlightenment Age.png Enlightenment Age).


When Royal Hwarang become Elite Royal Hwarang, they gain +20 hit points and +2 attack strength.

As with other Foot Archers, Elite Royal Hwarang are effective against Heavy Infantry, but weak against Light Infantry and Heavy Cavalry. They also make excellent garrisons, increasing a building's garrison power more than other unit types.

Elite Royal Hwarang are considered to be the strongest Foot Archers in the game, with their higher armor and stats allows them to nullify even the bonus damage of Apedemak Archers!
