Incredibly powerful first tier units are that of the Spearmen. Although costly to bear, their performance makes up for it.



Many false rumors are spread about the masked Spearmen, as those who meet them rarely live to tell the tale. Unwittingly trespassing into their territory, I was captured and found myself invited to dinner. Trying to divert my thoughts from the charcoal brazier, I joked about their amateur efforts to season me. These remarks evoked wild laughter that lasted for minutes, after which I was suddenly released. Never before have I met a people so joyful and appreciative of good humor. As long as I was entertaining, I had nothing to fear. At all times these erstwhile warriors are cheery and smiling, even in the bloodiest of battles. I suspect this is why they wear masks, as a grin is hardly very intimidating.

Notes & Strategies

Spearmen--despite the expense--are very powerful and capable units. At U-3 they pack a whopping 792 ATK! Learning when to use their ability is important to mastering their use, and failing to do so can be very harmful to your experience. As you will not be getting the most from this card.

L Units are the death of this card, and should be avoided unless you have a sufficient force.

Campaign PvE

Spearmen have adequate uses in PvE, that fulfill roles met by other Melee S Squads, such as the Thugs Card Icon Thugs, or the Wrathblades Card Icon Wrathblades. They are a solid combatant and can dish out a high amount of damage quickly, enabling them to win 1-on-1 fights with other targets that they counter, which other units would struggle with.

Because of their cost, be wary when summoning them in an early low power situation. As dumping that power into them COULD be your downfall, if chosen poorly.

Random PvE

Spearmen are similar in application in rPvE as they are in PvE. They are powerful and versatile, but tend to meet demise more readily due to the possibility of meeting L units early.

The Werebeasts Card Icon Werebeasts tend to see more use due to their speed and regeneration, which offer a more long term power advantage for the battlegrounds.
