  • Do horsemen upgrade to riders and whats the cost?

    I am playing china and wondering if I should start churning out horsemen en masse in anticipation of discovering chivalry.

    India is a big threat and war is looming for supremacy of the continent. I was wondering if you can upgrade horsemen to riders and how much it costs to do so.

    I am assuming that It is a good idea to do this if the cost is decent. I have about 1200 gold saved atm.

    You can definitely upgrade them

    I don't know what the cost is. Sorry.

      Same as a knight - 80 gold each.

        Sooo much gold... in one of the recent tourneys I had so many WCs and Horsemen to upgrade, it was gonna be like 3000gp... who has that much when Chivalry rolls around.

        And now, Txurce, let's talk about barb uprisings...
        The greatest delight for man is to inflict defeat on his enemies, to drive them before him, to see those dear to them with their faces bathed in tears, to bestride their horses, to crush in his arms their daughters and wives.

          The general rule for upgrade costs is two times the difference in shield costs of the two units. This is halved if you have Leo's.

          In this case:
          Cost = (70-30)*2 = 80

            This is why Leonardo's Workshop is a warmonger's best friend. All of a sudden 80 gold per Rider becomes 40 gold per Rider. 1000 gold for 25 Riders really isn't too pricey.

            The trick isn't to break some eggs to make an omelette, it's convincing the eggs to break themselves in order to aspire to omelettehood.
