Three new Seasonal Units inspired by Ancient Roman gladiators are coming to Conqueror’s Blade: Colosseum when the new update launches on September 1. We’ve met the agile yet deadly Retiarii, the born-and-bred fighters of the Myrmillones, and now it’s time to come face to face with the first set of fighters who will enter the Colosseum: Dimachaeri (3-Star).

The Ancient Roman gladiator known as the Dimachaerus was notable for his barbarian-esque appearance and fighting style. Armed with two swords and only light armour as protection from the horrors of gladiator combat, the Dimachaeri still demonstrated superior skills in the arena. Equipped for close-combat fighting, these gladiators adapted to both attacking and defending with their swords, as they did not carry shields.

Lured by fame or simply driven by desperation, the Dimachaeri in Conqueror’s Blade are a staple of the Colosseum. These nameless gladiators are as mysterious as they are powerful, wielding two swords, one a simple blade, and the other a ‘siccae’ or curved sword, capable of ignoring enemy blocking and able to tear shields aside.

Their combat techniques also enable them to raise their damage potential for a short time, as well as utilising back-stepping after every strike to prevent the enemy from hitting them.

Add the Dimachaeri to your ranks by completing new Unit Challenges in Conqueror’s Blade: Colosseum on September 1.
