|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
|In the Extended Edition, this unit/building is affected by a damage bug.|
Compared to Knights, Royal Companions have +6 movement speed, making them the fastest Heavy Cavalry, even surpassing the standard upgrades of the next ages. This means that Royal Companions can function as a rapid response unit, almost as much as Light Cavalry, easily outrunning Ranged Cavalry and being even more capable than standard Heavy Cavalry to eliminate the already vulnerable Foot Archers and Light Infantry. Royal Companions also do +5% damage against all units and buildings, which makes them more lethal in all situations.
