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.
It’s time to meet the next group of fearless fighters: Camel Lancers (4-Star).
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.
In Conqueror’s Blade, the Camel Lancers are the elite cavalry of the Shahr. Drawn from the aristocracy, tying their fate to that of the regime they serve.
Camels are not as fast over short distances as conventional horse cavalries, but their incredible endurance makes them ideal for long campaigns in the arid steppes and deserts of Shahir.
Attacks by the Camel Lancers can startle enemy horses, and the Unit can also be ordered to launch short-range, straight-line raids, trampling enemies along the way.
The Camel Lancers can brace enemies effectively, soaking up damage and gaining immunity to crowd control effects.
Recruit the Camel Lancers by completing new Unit Challenges in Conqueror’s Blade: Scorpio.
