Three Seasonal Units inspired by the factions of Ancient Persia are coming to Conqueror’s Blade: Scorpio when the new update launches on November 24.
Today, meet the first new band of assassins: Jangjus (3-Star).
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.
Add the Jangjus to your ranks by completing new Unit Challenges in Conqueror’s Blade: Scorpio on November 24.
