Many people have been disputing about which cav is best for raiding, so I experimented and came up with this table.

After doing the division for the first 5 units, I decided that making a test scenario would be faster(I am a discrace
to my asian family )

This is with standard, un-upgraded units and un-upgraded settlers, with the exception of Age 3 obtainable units set to veteran/elite/disciplined status:

Heavy Cavalry

I don't really think trample attack is viable here so I did factor in the .20 vill hand armor don't worry.


Hussar - 7 hits to kill villager

Uhlan - 6(very close to 5)

Cossack - 8(very close to 7)

Coyote Runner - 11

Axe Rider - 6

Dog Soldier - 7

Kanya Horseman - 7

Sowar - 10

Naginita - 7

Steppe rider - 13

Age 3 Heavy Cavalry

Veteran Lancer - 10(very close to 9)

Veteran Oprichnik - 4 (very close to 3)

Spahi - 6 (has Splash damage)

Veteran Cuirassier - 7(has splash damage)

Tashunke Prowler - 13(has splash damage) using 12 tashukes - 6

Disciplined Iron Flail - 10

Disciplined Meteor Hammer - 6(because of its range, villagers attack you ranged, though you are meleeing them)

Mamaluke - 6

Elmeti - 5

Stradiot - 4

Hackapell - 2


Light(ranged) Cavalry

Remember, they have a melee attack too


Zamburak - 20
Melee - Villager kills. Without Villager attack - 22

Keshik - 37
Melee - Villager kills. Without Villager attack - 19

Bow Rider - 8
Melee - 4 ( i think this is a mistake lol i'll check )

Age 3 Light Cavalry

Veteran Dragoon - 18
Melee - 18

Veteran Ruyter - 22
Melee - Villager kills. Without Villager attack - 22

Veteran Cavalry Archer - 22
Melee - Villager kills. Without Villager attack - 29

Disciplined Yabusame - 38
Melee - 25

Veteran War Wagon - 8
Melee - 18

Disciplined Howdah - 5
Melee - 12

Eagle Runner Knight - 20
Melee - Villager kills. Without Villager attack - 18

Rifle Rider - 24(can be obtained in age 2 with card)
Melee - 18

Musket Rider - 15
Melee - too much to count (got lazy doing math)

Manchu - 12
Melee - 14

Black Rider - 8
Melee - 30

Ok, so we see that, even though villies have hand armor, but not ranged armor, the .5 multiplier on 90% of Light Cav makes them more inefficient for raiding. We see that putting LC in melee mode does more dammage in some cases, and can block the path for villies, but the villie hand attack is strong enough to kill or severely weaken LC.

That's about it for now. I think I now have carpal tunnel syndrome after all the BB Code underlining

If there is anything wrong, please post it below.

Thanks

You deserved it, just don't do it again. You can bring back threads to post good ideas, BUT, don't bring them back for the simplicity of spamming a two letter post.
It's not like you haven't done anything like that before. Don't be such a hypocrite-jerk to new members.

Plus if you put hacks on trample you get an area attack plus the high attack and when theyre carded and hp boosted a lil they pack a punch, especially against russia

NEVER use trample. And Kiv, name one time I've brought back a 2+ week old thread for the simplicity of spamming it with a useless post? True I've asked nooby qs and posted nooby comments in my days (who doesn't), but I have never spammed a thread that's weeks old with a useless post.

Why not use trample...if you run into 30 unprotected strelets or something you get an 80 attack with 3 area...thats devastating

LOL marneus i wanted to not delete them that game
the whole map was green and paddy covered

And you also take more damage, so unless you have healers, then don't use trample. Besides, when will it be hacks vs skirms/strelets? Almost never happens.

because you'll be doing that 80 damage to yourself aswell? And hackas have like 300 hp.

Alas...I am defeated...

it has happened that I run into unprotected skirms and strelets though and I must say its quit a sight seeing them being run over!

I still believe spahi are better raiders. their splash damage rocks, esp if your opponent doesn't spot the raid right away.

but thanks for the guide! great job!
