NEW SEASONAL UNITS

JANGJUS (3-Star)
November 24th, 2022

This faction is specialised in melee and close-range combat, using scimitars and throwing knives. They fight fearlessly in the face of an unstoppable enemy army with unshakeable bravery.

The Jangjus wield scimitars with a long and storied history. Scimitar is used to describe a curved sword, in contrast to straight swords from the same time period. The earliest known appearance of a scimitar dates back to the 9th century in Khurasan, where it was used for its lightweight slashing capabilities, particularly when on horseback. A curved arc is better for slashing strikes, and the scimitar was widely used across the Middle East from the Ottoman period onwards for this very reason.

The Jangjus form the core of the Shahiri army. They specialise in both melee and close-range combat through the use of scimitars and throwing knives. These men were recruited from rural areas and are the foundation of General Hashem's regime in the cities. They have a reputation for unflappable courage in the face of enemy fire, though this has led them to over-extend their advances on more than one occasion.

Their throwing knife skill comes with a very short cooldown, which allows the Jangjus to attack multiple times, even while on the move. They can also launch ranged attacks in between melee strikes for extra burst potential.

CAMEL LANCERS (4-Star)
December 5th

An elite cavalry seen as a symbol of military might. Though their speed may not match horses, their stamina is unrivalled.

Camels were often used as cavalry animals in the Middle East due to their adaptability in arid desert environments. The size of camels was also said to have alarmed horses, making them effective in battle against conventional cavalry. 

The first documented use of camels as military animals was in the Battle of Qarqar in 853 BC by the Arab king Gindibu. Even later still, the Roman Empire used camel riders in the 2nd century for desert policing, scouting, and escort duties.

HASHASHINS (5-Star)
December 26th

Dangerous, elusive, determined. The Hashashins are trained in agility and stealth, allowing them to sneak attack any foe with their guard down.

Their notoriety and skill spread across the Middle East, in particular their use of “psychological warfare”, which instilled fear into their enemies, and often led to submission from their target. 

In Conqueror’s Blade, the Hashashins have a long if much-obscured history, serving not only as assassins but also as dedicated reconnaissance and infiltration troops for the Shahiri army. Their training emphasises agility, fast reflexes, and the utmost dedication to the missions they are entrusted with. 

Supposedly, a single Hashashin is capable of defeating any number of conscripted peasants in combat, but they are best used to cause maximum casualties among the enemy's troops and officers.

The Hashashins make use of smoke to slip into the shadows and can utilise this to cover their own attack or make a hasty retreat. Order your Hashashins to quickly approach a target while avoiding arrows, and quickly destroy enemies with low defence stats.

Using the Hashashins’ skills temporarily uses up its "Action Points" which will then recover over a short period of time

NEW MAPS

KURAK CASTLE REDUX:

  • The structure of the final base and areas behind it have been adjusted, as well as the position of the flag, which will provide the attacker with more routes

  • Point B’s defensive ability has been strengthened with a complex building layout and a roadblock on the path
  • Lighting, terrain and decorations are improved, making for a more engaging and immersive battle experience

EMPYREAN SANDS:

  • Point A’s defensive capability is improved as the staircase at Point A is now inaccessible to cavalry
  • Block a road from Point A to the final camp, meaning attackers will take longer to reach the final camp, allowing the defenders more time to set up a defence

NEW PVE MODE

DEPLOY & DEFEND

Strike from the shadows in the new PvE Mode: Deploy & Defend. Deploy units to set up a defence and fight off the invaders in this new Tower Defence inspired mode! Defeat all enemies to achieve victory.

MECHANICS

Deploy & Defend is a new PvE Mode where solo players can deploy multiple Units at the same time to defend the camp by themselves.

DEPLOYMENT:

The map features multiple flags, interacting with one enables you to deploy units or change the ones who are stationed at the point where the flag is located.

The units you can deploy will refresh each time you deploy new units or when you press the Change Unit button. The units you can deploy also change as the match progresses.

The number of times you can deploy and change units is limited and replenishes over the course of the match.

You also acquire a unique effect which allows you to gain increased movement speed but deal greatly reduced damage and have greatly reduced defences.
